Whenever womans dress takes a
paticularly extravagant turn an
effort is always made to explain it

Women just at present, at least
those who wish to be in the height
of fashion wear less than usual,
and all kinds of reasons are given
why they should do so.

from Paris, at a time when excess
of mor Is and prudery were very
much in the minority. At that

we are n o t inclined to believe

At present from the reports r.f

Bacchante ideal seems to be in
vogue. But that does not mean
that the women who follow then
would wish to be Bacchantes,
It is said that in France there is
more relevance between the wonim'
and the clothes they wear, and
there is a difference in the fashioi s
of the reputable and the desrep-
utablc. But often it is onlv tlu
fashions of the disreputable that

are created in- France and only
followed in other countries.
Just as the minor poet will ex

great poet has expressed them, so
the woman who dresses only to be
in fashion will wear clothes that
were originally devised to express
a way of life painfully different
from her owii.
She dees this because she is the
victim of precedent, and seems to
think it, would be too great a de

fashion allows, then they 'do so.
And the best of it is they can per

But the individual loses herself in

A British sea captain reports the
discovery of a race of people in
the vicinity of the Straits o f
niagellan who wear no clothing
that ice bergs abound in plenty.
The ship's crew captured a father
and son, the latter who seemed to
be on the verge of freezing from
the cold winds. He was wrapped
in blankets and tumbled into a
state-room where it was thought
he would son thaw out. He soon
began showing signs of distress.

father not rushed in and thrown
his overpoard into the ice-bestrewn
