While military uifii arc insisting that
the red coat of the British soldier and the
red trousers of the French soldier are dan
gerous, becauso their colors render them
peculiarly liable to be hit, no 0110 seems to
liavo noticed that black is the most deadly
of colors, while white is the safest. This
has been shown over and over again in the
fights which occasionally take place in the
southern states between black and white
citizens. At one of these lights, which
took place in Atlanta, four blacks were
killed and eight wounded, while only two
white men were hit, and neither of the two
This shows that a black man is six times
as liable to be hit by bullets as is a white
man. So, too, in conflicts btween red
men and white men tho former are hit
about twice as often as the latter. It is
hence evident that soldiers should be
dressed exclusively in white, and that tho
Austrians made a mistake in abandoning
their famous white coats. Paris Herald.

EVOLUTION OF THE MODERN FROM
THE SAVAGE GARNT.
Covering First Made of Bark Beginning
of the Tetticoat, the Corset, the Stock
ings and Other Apparel Bibbons First
Ufeed by Barbarians.
"To trace the development from their
primitive origin of women's garments as
they are worn today is very easy," said
Professor Mason at the National museum.
'You can see the original of the petticoat
even now among savage peoples all over
.he world in the shape of the universal
waist cincture, with pendent drapery of
bark or what not.
"The most beautiful illustration of this
is to be found at present among the Indians
f the northwest coast. The female among
those tribes ties a cord around her waist
and hangs therefrom innumerable strings
of shells, beads, pine nuts and all sorts of
things that are pretty and make a jingle.
So sacred are these ornamental girdles
considered that when the girls join the
white schools and are obliged to adopt civ
ilized clothing it is very usual for them to
wear the garments under their skirts be
hind, doubled up. Many authorities aver
that this is actually the source from which
the notion of the bustle was derived.
"The cincture I have described reaches
only from the waist to the middle of the
thigh. As to the upper part of the body
the Indian maiden of the northwest wears
nothing for a covering, except in cold
weather, when she puts on the tanned skin
of some beast, simply tying it over the
windward shoulder and under the other
arm with strings. Thus you have an ad
mirable example of the most primitive fe
male costume. The next step in the de
velopment of the upper garment is made
by cutting holes through tho skin to ac
commodate the arms, and in this shape
you find the primitive and earliest form of
AMOXG THE POLYNESIANS.
"Take a big jump over to the islands of
tho Pacific and you find the savages mak
ing clothing for themselves out of mul
berry bark, which they beat with mallets
and wash until all the soft part of its sub
stance has been taken out of it, leaving tho
textile portion, which serves in that shape
for a soft and strong cloth. A piece of
any sizo can be made by hammering the
edges of many pieces together until they
unite so perfectly that it is difficult to find
where they join.
"It is believed that the largest piece of
this mulberry cloth in the world is at
present in the National museum; it is six
feet long by twenty feet wide. Among
the rich islanders it is the custom for a
woman to wrap as much as thirty or forty
yards of the stuff around the body, below
the breasts, which are left exposed. The
simple lengthening of the primitive waist
garment makes the petticoat as we find
"As for the jacket, its most primitive
form was that of a skin tied over the shoul
ders. Next the skin became a blanket,
and soon a hole for the head was cut
through the middle of the blanket, as in
tho Mexican cloak called the 'poncho.'
You will find the Arabs even now employ
ing the same device, with ike addition of
holes for the arms. By tho timo you have
got this far the jacket is pretty nearly com
plete. All it needs to become entire are
sleeves and cutting to the figure.
OP.IGIN OF COP.SETS.
"Corsets have always been worn in one
shape or another by people who were at all
civilized, the necessity for some support
for the bust being obviously the occasion
for them, and not fashion, to begin with.
Women of ancient Greece and Rome wore
a cloth bandage wrapped about the body,
more or less tightly, beneath tho bosom
for the purpose. In the timo of Queen
Elizabeth the corset, as you are doubtless
aware, was a far more formidable thing
than it is now, in stiffness and size almost
like a piece of armor. Nowadays women
wear corsets because they inako their fig
ures shapely, and that reason is sufficient
to constitute a certainty that they will go
on doing so for an indefinite time.
"As for stockings, you know yourself
they are of the most modern invention, as
may be judged from the fact that Queen
Elizabeth was censured for her extrava
gance in procuring a few pairs of silk stock
ings for her own use. To discover the ori
gin of the stocking you have only to con
sider the fact that the people in early
times, finding the simple sandal not very
comfortable, wore it as a solo for a soft
foot covering separate from it, which was
the first attempt at luxury in footwear.
You can see that it was only necessary to
stitch the sandal to the soft shoe in order
to make what was to all intents and pur
poses the shoe of the present day. But the
men of those early times found it con
venient to wear for hunting purposes leg
gings to protect their limbs from the
thorns and burrs. Hence have been devel
oped what we know as breeches or trousers.
Recently there has reached the museum a
pair of ancient leggings of the sort de
scribed attached by sewing to the soft
undersoles. Here you have what is doubt
less the original form of stocking.
NATURAL HISTOBT OF RIBBONS.
"Nothing is more closely identified with
women's dress today than ribbons. What,
then, is the origin of ribbons? You can
discover it very simply by looking at the
long fringe of strips into which the primi
tive savage cuts the deer hide or other
skins that forms his garment or his to
bacco pouch or whatever else of his orna
mental possessions you please. Why does
tbe savage go to the trouble of cutting the
beast's hide into such strips? It is because
the eye is pleased with waving curves.
"When savage fashions merged into civil
lized fashions this idea was retained, and
so at present we find weavers and makers
of stuffs manufacturing their fabrics into
what we call ribbons. They are adopted
peculiarly by women ra this age, when the
masculine sx eschews ornanyint in civil
ized life almost wholly.
"The hat, in its origin, is a thine purely
ornamental. Except in arctic climes,
where as much as possible of the body
must be covered to keep out the cold, sav
ages have never thought of protecting the
head. With us it is a matter purely of cul
tivationthe necessity for a head covering
growing out of the habit of employing it.
The beginning of the hat was what yon
find it among savage peoples today a tuft
of feathers, a bunch of porcupine quiUs or
what not " Washington Star.

in 1S78 he was frequently interrupted by a

An Actor's Coiocldeacn.
The following instance may bo regarded
by thcHiiperHtitious as sufficient warning
against all jests on such a grim subject as
grim death. It is related by Bolton, tho
English actor and author. Stan Reeves,
the famous tenor, vras once playing Squlra

tho very moment he wan walking off tho

you, Mr. Reeves, that Mrs. Rcves is dead.
Mrs. Balyntyne directs mo to tell you to

completely prostrated by the suddennesa
of the announcement, and was first to
notlco the odd coincidence that connected
tho little wayward song with his wife's
death. St. Louis Republic.
A Very Old Horso.
"Old Kate," a horso burned to death in
Cincinnati, was, her owner alleges, AR years
old. She was born In Walos of thorough
bred stork. She was shipped to Cunada in
1840, being only a yearling. Tha voyag
had a bad efiYct upon her, and the im
porter sold the stunted colt to a farmer,
who kept her until she was 3 year old,
when she began to grow.
Tho farmor sold her to Hugh Morgan, a
lumber dealer of this city, and ho kept her
up to bis death, in 1801. Showaof a jet

mare went to Mr. Lannlng, who ran a
planing mill on Canal street. He in tarn
sold her to a flxh and oyster dealer en Linn

owner bought her seven years ago. Sh
