WKIJXKSnAY, JULY 18, 1883.
DR. RICHARDSON ON WOMEN'S DRESS.
Dr. lik'lmt clson presided on thefith
February nt n meeting of the Itntion
al Dress Society, held at the Stein
way Hall, Lower Seymour-street,
London, which was largely attended
by ladies. Apaperon rational dress,
by Sirs. Lynch, was read by Miss
Itarnct; Lady Ilnrbci ton and Mrs. C.
IJ. M'Larcn said the society had ar
rived at three conclusions 1st, the
tight bodico must be abolished ; 2nd,
freedom of movement and necessary
warmth without weight could not be
attained without the adoption of some
kind of divided skirt ; and 3rd, fluctu
ating fashion must be crystallised
into some unchanging shape of dress.
Dr. Richardson, in moving a vote
of thanks to the ladies for their ad
dresses, said that in this dress reform
they should consider what was right
first, then what was artistic would
follow. It was essential that the
body should be the first thing con
sidered, and that the dress should
liavis a secondary place. It was the
body that was beautiful. Dress was
merely to be adapted to that body ;
and he agreed with the lady speakers
that nerfect looseness of the dress
throughout should be the first thing
the society should insist upon. Then
he was glad that the necessity for the
put mitting of equality of temperature
all over the body was insisted on so
strongly. Men would be suffering
every day from colds and bronchial
affections if they went as women went,
with the upper part of their body un
clothed; ntid it was his experience
that in the large majority of cases of
people born with consumptive ten
dencies that had been brought under
his notice, the cause of the mischief
being brought out was exposure of
the chest. Artists must be left to
speak of the color of the outside dress,
but the color most serviceable in this
temperate zone, and the color which
most accorded with all that related to
health, was the grey color For
cleanliness, effect of light upon the
body and warmth, grey was the best
color, black the worst. Melbourne
WHY THEY WERE NOT HUNGRY.
About two days ago one of the
funniest things, that ever was, hap
pened at a piominent railway eating
house in this city. A newly mar
ried couple came to the table and
were seated, and while they were
eating two very cute looking fellows
took seats directly opposite them
at the same spread. They were
telegraph operatois. By poising
their knife aeross the back of their
fork and gently holding one end
they were enabled to make a click,
click, click, in close imitation of
the telegraphic key. Jn the mystic
language of Prof. Morse one Alec
said unto the other:
"I should say so. See them paws
" She looks like a Boiler avenue
"The little fat rascal, how 1
would like to pinch her cheek."
"Wonder who that old galoot is
that's got her?"
" Some yokel, you can bet."
The yokel, as they termed him,
now took it to be his turn and
click, click went his knife in such
rapid succession that it knocked the
rude Alexanders silly. It was clear
to them. It said:
"Gentleman, if 1 am not mis
taken, you will please report to
head quartets and get your time.

upon which you work. We do not
require the services of any one that

Tney could not catch the last
words "for just then the window fell
down and thut off the interview.
Men will soon go about like itine
rant rainbows (says the European
Mail) if the habit of wearing differ
ent coloured ribbons on the breast to
indicate to the outside world what
they eat and drink spreads much
more. A Violet Ribbon Army is
the latest craze among sclf-con-Huious
people who have succeeded
in persuading themselves that strati
gars aro interested in the contents of
their stomachs. Tho Violet Ribbon
Araiy are not total abstainers, teeto
tallers, hydropots, watcrpots, or
whatever the popular nmuo may be.
They decorate their button-holts or
the lappets of their coats to show
that they do not take casual nips of
spirits at odd times, and abjure
wheny and bitters before dinner.
There can be no doubt that the prac
tice of 'nipping" is a pernicious
one, and that tho appetising attri
butes of sherry and bitters are
