Ono of tho lntcst nnd probably tho protticst
ties worn In mnny years Is tho wide-flowing
Ascot. Thoy nro becomine to almost ovory
man, and when ono loams to tlo them proporly
bo can wnlk out, feeling that his neckwear Is
not a day behind tho ago. It is of soft silicon
material, and although tho movements aro Toiy
simplothoroisnot ono man in five that can tlo
tho scarf properly or without' considerable
practice. They may get tho propor folds, but
tho trick of tho job is to mako tho baud urouud
tho neck lit snugly and not have tho tio bo looso
that it will sag during tho day. There Is no
doubt that it 1b part of a well-bred man's educa
tion that he should bo taught how to tie bis own
neckwear. This dopartmeut has gained such
importance in London and Paris that schools
havo been established by gentlemen's valets
whero tho various knots will bo taught for a
The bost-dresscd man wears tho plainest Bhirt
fronts. They are Tory wide, and thocollai6on
tho dress shirts arc attached.
White duck veBts and fancy colored vests, not
too gaudy, arc being worn a great deal during
tho season, and they novcr fail to lend a fresh
and original appearance during this timo of tho
year. Vest linincs still remain popular and aro
no longer considered fads. They set off a man's
neckwear to vory good effect and some men put
in a black silk lining (made to order) botween
tho edgo of a whito vest and a white tie. Tho
combination Is vory pretty.
Tho idea of wearing two scarf-pins is ono of
tho most amusing yet vulgar fads that has been
pushed before the eyes of tho public for many a
day. It Is something no sensible or ovon well
dressed gentleman would bo guilty of.
Tho high turn-over collar with tho high back
has passed that period of being a novelty and is
now on sale at mo6tall of tho reputable bouses.
Spoaking of this new stylo of collar, howover, it
is very bad taste to wear anything but a big bow
with them. This gives it tho necessary sem
blance of tho old-timo stock. A puff cannot bo
worn with them and a four-in-hand must not.
The roll collars made a hit from tho start and
are being sold in almost every furnishing store.
Puff tics and four-in-hands suit this stylo with
Regarding jewelry, very little of it should bo
worn, and then of the plainest or most curious
kind. Not more than one diamond should be
worn, as a ring and a solitaire, and a horseshoe
Is admissiblo at the scarf.
For full-dress shirt studs diamonds are now
considered almost vulgar. Pearls aro tho
"proper caper," and tho moonstone has como
forward lately nnd succoeded in gaining a great
deal of popularity.
Thero has been a noticeable falling off in tho
wearing of gaiters this winter, and now thoy arc
worn no longer asli fad, but for comfort.
It Is no longer considered necessary for a man
to take bis hat off in an elevator containing
women, other than ono running in a hotel. The
reason given for this change Is that not only aro
tho elevators in the majority of the public build
ings very draughty, but women have entered
into commercial business to such an extent that
a man could hardly run across an elevator that
did not contain ono or two type-writers, stenog
raphers, etc. In tho hotels there aro no
draughts, and ho runs no chance of catching
cold. It is, therefore, not at all bad form to
keep your hat on in a public elevator, and your
position as a gentleman isn't injured in tho
The Blucher shoe, which resembles tho 'long
shoreman's brogan, only that it is of much finer
quality and of nicer shape, is rapidly gaining
many admirers on account of Its heavy make,
warmth, and beauty. Button shoes aro no
longer in tho race, but will always bo worn by a
certain class of men who have worn them all
Don't wear a small black satin bow or a
white lawn tio to business every day unless you
aro a professional man.
Don't carry a little thin cano unless you aro
under sixteen years of ago or too old and weak
to support a heavier one.
Don't carry a cano to business.
Don't wear a silk hat to business every morn
ing unles3 you aro an elderly gentleman and tho
dignity of your position requires It.
Don't, above all, wear a silk hat if you aro a
young man, with the idoa that it will lend you
the dignity you do not possess. It will only
cause other people to feel sorry for you.
Don't go out of tho house with a button off
your coat. Sew it on yourself first.
Don't keep frayed collars and cuffs lying
among your linen. Sort them out and give
them away, for If you should happen to wear
ono somo timo tho cntiro effect of tho icst of
your clothes would be lost.
Don't wear a pair of cracked patent leather
shoes. Thoy will be noticed taoro than you
bavo any Idea of, and don't t?j to got them
patched and then wearthem. If anything, thoy
look worse than before.
Don't wear shabby gloves If you dress well at
all. They look mean and poverty-stricken, and
mending does them little or no good.

"Some ycaisago, after a severe attack of
brain fever, my hair all came out. I used
audi preparations forrcstoilng it as my phy
sicians ordered, but failed to pioduco a
giowtli of hair. I then tried, successively,
several aiticles lecommcnileil by diuggists,
and all aliko fell short of accomplishing tho
desired result. Tho last lenicdy I applied
was Ayei'3 Hair Vigor, which brought a
growth of hair in a few weeks. I think I
used eight bottles in two yeais; moio than
was necessary as a restorative, but I liked it
as a dressing, and have continued to uso it
for that purpose. I believe Aycr's Hair
Vigor possesses virtues far above those of
any similar preparation now on the market,"
