To adapt yourself to a fashion means
that you wear It as if It were the most
natural thing in the world. Did we
ever have skirts more than a yard and
a half wide? Oh, I suppose so; but
we have learned to be comfortable, or
at least to look so. in our hobbles.
Last -year we supported a huge struc
ture of fur, feathers, flowers and felt
upon our heads. Then we veered sud
denly to a mere toque with two top
heavy plumes which always threatened
to pull down one's back hair.
Now we leave off the extra hair and
crush a small plush bonnet down upon
our brows and over our ears.
I do It, you do it, and so do we all,
because, no matter what our incomes
are, we have learned to adapt ourselves
to fashion's decree.
And fashion, dear friends, is not
made by women, but by men. We wear
the clothes and styles which providence,
in the gulsp of the manufacturer and
the man dressmaker, sees fit to thrust
upon the market. Don't let any one
persuade you into thinking women
would have designed hobbles, or the
enormous and rather useless muff of
today. The fertile imagination of the
fur man designed the latter, and dur
ing the heat of a dull summer day the
hobble idea sprang fullfledged from the
brain of a man who is one of the lead

Any woman who attempts to regulate

for the role of Donna Quixote. This is
especially true in this countr. where
every woman is born with the inalien

suit of the fashions, unhindered by any
other person, but the matter of which
the Washington woman complains, and
wMch she wishes to se reformed by
the stern hand of the law, is not se
unimportant as It seems. ,
A Problem of KthlcK. I
One migat think that the question of
whether a working girl wore silk
stockings or cot was one that lay be- j
tffeen her own sole and her pocket- ,
book. Not so. It Is really not so mucb
a matter of fashion as a problem in I
For the silk stocking on the "working '
girl s foot is the modern materializa
tion of Faust. It is the visible sign of
temptation, or the yearnng for ease ,
and luxury and adornment the foolish
finer for which so many poor girls
sel tueir souls. When you see cob-
web silk stockings peeping from be

The Craiing for Luxury. I
For the silk stockings on the work '
ing girl represent so pitifully much.
Tnej tell the story of her craving for
the luxuries that rich women have
The teli of the sybaritic impulses that
she must stifle ordinarily, but that she
! 3s giaiifled for once in the purchase
of the silken hosiery. They tell of sac
rifices that she has made, of lunches
8i e 1 as done without, of pinchfng econ
omies here and there that she has made
to gratifv her tanity. They tell of fool
ish extiiagance of silly pining for the
iud Jgences of the wealthy, of weak
j Wdlng to temptation, of a frivolous
nature that never stops to count the
cost of gratifying an Impulse.
Or else they tell a sadder story, foi
there Is no nher thing on earth so ter
ribly tragic as that the majority of
gir s go wrong not lor love of some
man, but for love of dress. They are
net pa-sion-driven, but fashion mad
They barter away all that is sacred to
a woman for a rag of chiffon and a few
pairs of silk stockings.
It is this that makes the sight of silk
stockings on poor fee't that cannot af
ford them one that must make the very
angels in heaven weep. It is because
w:e know so well what road they are
tending toward that we would like to
stop th;m, if we could But it cannot
be done by law. It is doubtful If it can
be done at all, but the only -way Is to
try to make the workjng girl under
stand something of trht dignity of labor,
and to feel how much more she counts
for in the world than the poor, useless
society butterfly who is good for noth
ing but a frame on which to hang and
exhibit fine clothes. j
If we could do that, then perhaps the
working girl would not feel that she
must imitate In her dress the society
girl, and would spend her money for
sensible hosiery instead of silly silk
stockings that waste her salary and
bring suspicion upon her character.

committee of the chamber of commerce,
appointed for the purpose of putting in

dirt to put the plot of ground in prop

The committee has assurances from a

The Great Expansionist
By REV. THOMAS B. GREGORY.
ONB hundred and twenty-six years
ago today-Jan. 35, 1T8S Thomaa
Jefferson, at the time our minis
ter to France, wrote a letter to Archi
bald Stuart, calling his attention to the
condition of affairs beweon the Alle
ghanles and the Mississippi, and in the
course of bis letter Mr. Jefferson said:
"I fear that the people of Kentucky
think of separating not only from Vir
ginia (In which they are right), but
also from t e confederacy. I own I
should think this a most calamitous
event, and such a one as every good
citizen on both sides should set him
self against. Our present federal limits
are not too large for good government!
nor will the increase of votes in congress
produce any ill effect. On the con
trary, it will drown the little divisions
at present existing mere. Our confed
eracy must be viewed as the nest from
which all Amerlca North and South, is
to be peopled."
We have here in this letter of Jeffer
son the fountain head of the expansion
idea not "imperialism" (that was a
word that Jefferson would have scorn
ed and detested), but the broadening
out of American ideas and principles
until they covered the whole American
Jefferson's expansionist ideas were
strongly expressed in his first inau
