The Decline of Hoops.
The contraction of feminine hoops
begins to be appnrent in tho streets
and iu the street-cars. If the reaction
bus fairly set iu, there is no telling
in what it may end. It is said that
our great-grand mothors wore hoops
larger and more cumbrous than any ot.
the present generation have soon,
whilo our grandmothers discarded not
only hoops, but a great deal of under
clothing, appearing in pubiio in skirts
of such gossamer texture as to nfford
something more solid than a mere con
jecture upon which to base an idea of
exquisitely-rounded limbs and other"
voluptuous charms. Nay, more, it is
alleged that before going to an evening
party they slightly dampenod their
skirts, eo they would cling mora close
ly to their human forms divine, "half
revealing and half concealing the mys
terious ionfigration of the womanly
shape. Whether the hoop reaction
stops short of this other extreme or
not, wo must muko up our minds to be
satisfied, as sxperiunco has thoroughly
demonstrated that it is no use for bi
furcate humanity to kick up a dust
about female fashions. The effect of
ridicule, ns well as sorious remon
strance, has boon thoroughly tried en
hoops, water-falls and other fominal
"flxins," and all to so purpose. Tho
more the newspapors lampooned then
the more they flourishod like green
bay trees, until just as we beoomo rec
onciled, the female whim changes, and
oft they go. But come what may, wo
shall bo ths gamers by ths abolitiea of
hoops. There will te more room in '
the street-oars and 04 the side-walks,
to hint nothing about the many other
little conveniences that will be restored
to us from the fnr past of imperious"
