THE EXTRAVAGANCE OF WOMEN
London Journal Champions the Cause
of the Fair Sex.
In all sections of society one hoars
married men, and indeed others,
grumbling considerably at the ex
travagance of their wotnenklnd in
dress. In individual cases "(hey may
have the right . tv'iirin;.le-' -but "'on
principle, and In general, I io not see
that they have any genuine grounds
for complaint, because If women are
now extravagant In dress It must be
remembered that for generations
men have been extravagant in other
anil worse forms of aelf-indulgence.
And, after all, man can take comfort
to his soul In tiie knowledge that it Is
chiefly with a view to pleasing him
that woman Indulges in follies of this
sort, added to which he should count
It as a gain that this particular form
of extravagance adds to the general
cheerfulness and gaiety of life. Lon
Didn't Need a Chain.
In a Scottish town, so the stor
goes, a Ixindoner on his way to a
hotel addressed the porter who led
the way: "Not large place this?"
"Na verra," was the answer. "Has it
a corporation?" "A what, sir?" In
quired the baggage bearer. "I mean,
who rules It?" "Rules it? Jlst the
provost." "Ah, the provost. Like our
lord mayor? Has he got any Insig
nia?" remarked the cockney. "Insig
nia! What d'ye mean?" asked the
puzzled Scotsman. "Yes, Insignia;
that Is to say, has he a chain?" the
polite visitor hinted. Whereupon the
almost dumbfounded native gasped
out: "A chain, sir? Tho provost
chained? Na, na! He gangs loose;
but dlnna be feared, he's quite harm
less." What a Famous City Lacks.

A projected line from Athens to Sa
