FORTIkE FUR SEX.
Lntlics WearliiR Insects.
Were it not for the hundred and one
little novelties which are constantly
being devised for tl.o elaboration of her
toilet th? girl of the period would die
if innui. Just at present the insect
craze is upon us and the women folks
are decked out with spiders, scorpions,
de.it's darning nee lies, pinch bugs,
beetles and a whole range of ug'y
cra.vling and creeping things which
are used for ornaments, 'lhis only
thows the superiority of art over na
ture. One real bug or lhely spider
will thto aoinin into convu's.ons;
but such is the ameliorating effect of
art that she walks about with ill-concealed
pride, fa'rly radiant under a
dozen or more thousand-legged insects
of blue, gre.n, orange and red gilt.
These hideous creatures are displayed
in every part of the toilet, not so
much lor utility as ornament. They
close a collar, loop a piece of drapery,
fasten a bow of ribbon, lurk in the
roils of prettily braided hair, peep out
from the meshes of soft lace and thrust
their ugliness against a pretty white
neck or wrist.
Sometimes these ornaments are of
wot d, gray, black or moldy silver, and
so true to nature in size and shape
that often kind-hearted men and ner
vous ladies attempt to brush them off,
and receive only a derisive smile for
their solicitude. Such an experience
t'cMes a girl's vanity, and she recites
an 1 chuckles over the occurrence for
weeks after. This bug mania is about
as ugly a spcimen of art run mad as
can be imagined, and goes to show th3
inc onsi.-tency of a sex whose delicate
sni Abilities, through the dictates of
fashion, can be reconciled to what, in
nature, always has and always will be
regarded as repulsive.
When, a couple of years ago, the
wives and daughters of some South
American magnate garnished their
ballroom t.jiletswith iridescent beetles,
which were secured by invisible
threads of wire and allowed to ramble
over the satin bodice and corsage, ?o
ch'ty threw up her arms in horrible
disgust at the absurdity, whi h, as the
leaders predicted, was of short dura
tion. But the same prophecy would
b pertinent in the pre;ent case. The
trinkets are made of French gilt, high
ly painted, and, as they come within
the reach of every scullion and bar
maid, it will not be long before the in
novation has run its race in popular
taste. Chicago Herald.
