Till: DECOLLETE DRESS.
VIEWS OF DR. HOWAFID CROSBY GIVEN
IN A CANDID STYLE.
Influence I'pon Young- Girls Brought Vp
In Society's Whirl lut her a Severe Com
ment on Men Who Attend Some Thea
tre A Pnritan for Hlmnelf Only.
Tho decollete dross now tuted by women
for evening wear is sin ply an abomination.
I will not denounce all tho women who wear
such dresses as immornl. That wonld be
unfair. But 1 do contend that they are all
shamelessly immodest. I onn readily under
stand how a young girl, brought up in what
is known ns fashionable society and accus
tomed from her childhood to the appearance
of her mother during the evening in this
outrageous costume, should como to regard
the exposure of her arr is and tho upper part
of her bosom os eminently proper and modest.
Perhaps she would nver think about the
matter at all. But thU unconsciousness on
her part does not make the osjiowire any the
lent immodest, any more than the uncon
sciousness of the native woman of Africa,
who appears in a state Df nature aud walks
aliout in this unhampered condition, robs her
exposure of every immodest characteristic.
1 suppose this comparison will not be con
sidered a fuir one by a great many people.
But if the opportunity which a wealthy
American girl has for cultivation and reline
ment is considered, tit say nothing of her
Christian training, which should lie" hers,
and can be hers for the a-sking, is considered,
which enable her to distinguish between the
modest and the liiiiuox lost, these people will,
if they are not biased, admit that the com
parison has ull tho elements of truth. To
my mind, there is very little difference be
tween a poor, uneducated African womnn
with absolutely no perceptions of right and
wrong, appearing stirlc naked, and a Chris
tian woman of the Nineteenth century ex
posing her breast.
EVIL MtNPKD MEN.
So much for the immodesty of the ques
tion. Its immorality is attributable partly
to the women who wear it, but chiefly to the
men who countenance and encourage them.
The womeu who eagerly seize on the pretext
which this costume uffonU for the exhibition
of their physical attractions for the purpose
of capturing tho attention of men, thereby
knowing full well what the intluenco of such
display possesses, are. I um very happy to
ay, In the minority. But they do exist, and
the cost u mo iu their hands and worn by them
is an instrument of the deviL The chief
cause of its immorality, however, resides in
the filthy imaginations of the men.
All men Hro more or less immoral in
thought, if not in deed, and tiiere is abso
lutely no except ion to this rule. If it is not
so, why do men frequent theatres where the
exposure of half linked women in tights
colored to resemble human flesh is the pre
vailing and predominant feature of tho r
formancesf They go tiiere simply that their
unhealthy and uncleanly imaginations mav
have full play, and if the exhibitions on the
stage do not minister to their diseased fancy
and appeal to their sexutil passions thev are
voted dull and coiiinuiiiplnro and left w ithout
Nowadays men" often frequent drawing
rooms for tho same reason that they frequeut
the theatres. 1 here they meet women, their
social peers, it is true, dressed, or rather un
dressed, in evening costume, and find food
for their imagination precisely as they do
when they attend a ballet or a spectacle.
Then comes the taik of the dubs. The bust,
the formation of the arms, and the more or
less voluptuous curves of ihe figure, all fur
nish themes for subsequent comment. The
points of a new debutante ure estimated by
these men during drawing room conversa
tions, with all the cure and skill exhibited bv
an expert in horseflesh, where the merits of a
horse are under consideration. And the ob
servations carried away from these drawing
roojgg are made afterwards the subject of
club gossip, anl form the basis of compari
son when the excellencies oi rival beuuties
happen to bo mentioned.
IMS BEEN IT niMSELF.
If young and innocent girls could but hear
the comments and criticisms which aro made
on their figures by club men nrouml the card
rooms and at club window s, uud could listen
for a moment M ihe minute analyses which
are made of their puysicnl attractions left
exposed by reason of the deeuileto dress, no
argument that could possibly 1 advanced
would induce thorn to continue the wearing
of this apparently popular and fashionable
garment. And when I speak of the un
licensed way in which men talk iu tho club
rooms, I am tiot drawiugon my imagination.
I was 35 years old before I hcrniue a minister,
and during that time I had ample opportuni
ties for observation, and it is what I saw
and beard which now furnishes me the basis
for the conclusions I have expressed.
The underlying principle of all nude ex
hibitions, whether on the public stage or in
private life, is dirt. Kven if legislative in
terference were possible, however, in the
matter, any attempt to exert it would be
foolish. The folly and indecency of the de
collete dress huve lieen pointed out by the
press and by tho pulpit ever since it has been
worn, and never w ith any appreciably good
effect. I prefer to let the women who wear
them severely alone. If people want to live
in pig sties let them live there. For one I
would not attempt to compel them to live
elsewhere. I am no Puritan except for my
self. IIov aril Crosby in Cincinnati Com

The removal of an accumulation of soil
during tho building oerutioijs at Mr. Alfred
Sbuttleworth's mansion, in Eastgate, Lin
coln, brought to light a very considerable
and important fragment of tho eastern wall
of the Roman city. This fragment consists
of a largo quadrangular block of solid ma
sonry, with dressed lacing, projecting in
ward from the wall. It is probably the base
ment of a qundrangular tower strengthening
the wall midway ltween the northeast
angle aud the east gateway. Although large
portions of the Roman wall exist iu other
parts of the circuit, this is the only place in
whichany of the ashlar facing has been found
remaining. London Times.
Why We Sink In OiilcluuMid.
Quicksand is composed chiefly of small

The mica is so smooth tlmt the fragments

them will sink, and con; inuo to sink until a

Count Tolstoi on the Conventional Illu
sion of Itomautio I .ore.
"1 wish," said Count "Tolstoi to The Pall
Mall Budget's representative, "to write a
novel, a romance, exposing the conventional
illusion of romantic love. I have already
written it, but it must be turned upside down
and rewritten. It is too much of a treatiso
as it stands, and there is not enough of ac
tion in it. My object is to fill the reader
with horror at the result of taking romantic
love au serieux. The end to which the whole
story will lead up will be the murder of a
wife by Iter husband. It will exhibit the
depravation of married live by the substitu
tion of romantic love, a fever born of carnal
passion, for Christian love, which is horn of
identity of sentiment, similarity of ideal, tho
friendship of the soul. Upon that love.
Christian love, the love of brother and sister,
if the carnal love can I grafted it is well,
but the former, not tho latter, is the first
condition of happy married life. Herein the
peasants teach us a lesson. They regard
what we regard as romantic love as a dis
ease, temporary aud painful and dangerous.
With them no marriage is made under its in
fluence. Anything is lietter than that The
Herrstuteii, who marry by the drawing of
lots, are wiser than we.
"Our system is the worst possible, and the
wboloof our wedding ceremonial, and the
honeymoon, the feastiug, and the incitement
to carnality, are directly calculated to result
in the depravation of matrimony. Not in
one case out of a hundred does romantic love
result in a lifelong happy union. The young
people whose lives lie in different orbits are
drawn together by this evanescent passion.
They marry. For a mouth they are happy
perhis even for a year or two years.
Then they hate each other for the rest ot
their lives, sending their time in paying
homage to the respectabilities by concealing
the truth from their neighlsirs. It must be
so. If Anna Karenina had married Ijeven
she must have nbaudoned linn likewise. Ro
mantic love is like opium or hashish. The
sensation is overpowering and delightful.
But it fiasses. It is not in human uature not

She Wouldn't Work.
une coma scarcely expect a cow, not
trained to th profession of arms, to conduct
herself with gnat tlf possession as one of a'i
army. In the ' Story of a Boy Company" is
to tie found an anecdote concerning one such
new recruit a cow w hich, with several hens
and a rooster, wer attached to a Confeder
ate battery. As soon us a halt was mude for
the night the fowls were taken from tho
wagon, where they rode, the rooster was tied
to a, w heel spoke by tho leg and his family
always remained near him.
As the war progressed, aud the horses
grew poor, the cow was brought into us as a
beast of burden. She was saddled, dishes,
frying pans and coffee pots were hung upon
the saddle, and the docile creature moved
away, quite oblivious of the clatter on her
ltck. Sue was usual I v tied to a caisson, but
often she was turned loose, and thus followed
the battery like an enlisted soldier.
During the last winter of the war a large,
raw o inea, liriiut!'; cow strayed into camn.
und ulihough at first wild, she soon followed
the example of the veteran and became au
One day, when a sudden start had been or
dered, it was thought advisable to utilize the
now cow us a porter. A little fellow named
Carlton was ordered to saddle the cows. The
old onp was quickly loaded with the captain's
tmggage, recently killed chick-ns and other
rations, aud Cur. ton then proceeded to mi
tho coffee Kit, skillet and other utensils urjou
the brindle. Ho was obliged to make her fast
to a une tree in order to load her rapidly.
Everything was ready, tho battery was
about to move, and the caitain directed
Carlton to let go the ropes, and uiaks the
briudle follow in the wake of the old cow
who had just taken the line of march in good
order. But no sooner had the ropes slipped
from briudic-'s horns thuu, with head, heels
and tail high in the air, eho sped down the
hill, the sound of her bellowing mingling
with the clutter of tin, and forming a bass
and tenor seldom heard.
After freeing herself of every vestigo of
her iwck she slowly returned, seeking her
companion. Tue scattered load was col
lected and f laced again upon her back, but
as soon as she was free, with a bound and
bellow, she fbd down the hill, this time
never to return.
She Loved the Kid.
"That is the strangest attachment I ever
saw formed, and I've been around with cir
cuses, man and loy. for forty-six years,"
said Harry Pierce, the veteran in charge of
Orenier's wild be.ts, in tho w inter quarters
of the menagerie at tho corner of Randolph,
and Ann streets. He referred to a white
Burmese cow and a white kid, which were
made fast, close by one another, to a wheel
of the great cage in which was the hippo
potamus. Why, sir," suid Pierce, approach
ing Close to the animals with The Herald re
porter, "we dare not separate them, even for
a few moments, lest tho cow go into fits.
She will cry, moan and take on like a human
being if it is out of her sight for a moment.

her calf. She will lick it, got close by its
sido, insist upon its having, the choice of all

A strange scene occurred the other day at
Sierck, on the Moselle. Ilerr Schmidt had a
dog which he wished to get rid of. Rowing
out into the middle of the rfver, he fastened
a stone round the dog's head and threw him
into the water. The animal sank at once, but
during his struggles the rope slipped the
stone, and he again rose to the surface and
tried to get back into the boat His master,
however, continued to push him back, but as
the dog persevered be lost bis patieuco, and,
