HOW CORSETS ARE WORN.
A FASHIONABLE N AKER DISCOURSES
UPON THi: SUBJECT.
nan covcta or TiKlit LarlnK- Mwt Women
Wear Coraeta Too Small for Tbem The
Vouiir Lady wio NVabr Died The lii
humanity of Moth, nt Slaj for Men.
Just off of Broad wa ' on eighteenth street
mere is a modest littio houso whieh differs in
no essential point but .no from ir
The point of differem-e is that it liears nmiiriw
on its stony breast a bud-o which telU the
passers by that within faMiionablu corsets
are nuulo, A reports- for The Press called
on the proprietress.
"Well, what can I Ml you about corsetsr
she asked after she hod read the reporter's
"I want to know all aliout them," was the
modest reply, "but first tell mo, pluase,
whether ladies of th present day lace as
ugnny as they did a ft w years ago."
"They do not, that s certniu. Tig-ht lac-
io, you know, has a tendency to elongate
iu waisi, anu na snort waisttt are in style at
tho present tinie, the fnshionablo woman does
not attempt to shape hern to that degree of
wnspuke attenuation so sought for in the
days or t!o boardlLkt stays. Then, again,
women are undoubted! t becoming more sen
sible, and consequently more careful of their
health. Frankly, the vonmn of the period
cannot stand tho tight lacing that her grand
mother could. She hasn't the constitution,
and I believe her weak less is a r.-sult of the
abominablo pinching that the waists of her
maternal ancestors received."
A SENSIBLE CORSirr A REAL NEED.
"You do not believe n corsets, theur"
"Hut indeed 1 do when they nre used judi
ciously. They are mos : certainly a great con
venience and comfort, mid I cannot see how
tho health can lie injured by their use, if, as
I say, they are used i 1 a scusiblo manner.
Some ladies, to be sui o, get along without
them, but heavens, what dumpy, shapeless
figures such have. I do not see what ikhsI
ble objection there can tx to loose, well fitting
corsets. What, for instance, could stout
ladies do without them? They not only gird
tho waist and support trie bust, but they keep
the clothing from cutting into tho flesh.
Fleshy women, however, muko oue great
mistake. Almost invariably Ihey wear cor
sets that are too sma I for them. Now, if
flesh is squeezed away from its natural posi
tion it is bound to go some where else where na
ture never intended it 1 1 go; and tho result is
naturally an uncouth figure. But tight lacing
is indulged in by stout rnd thin, in fact fool
ish women of all sizes and conditions will in
dulge in it. It is hardly necessary for me to
say that I consider tiglr. lacing an abomina
ble uud suicidal hubit."
'"Is it not a fact that most women will in
sist upon wearing a corset that is too small
for them f"
"That is unquestionably so, although, an I
have beforo stuted, vry tight lacing is no
longer indulged in to any extent. As long as
slim Whists aro admired by tho eterner sex
women will have them, cost what it may.
There Is scarcely ono f my customers who
does not wear a corset v hleh is at least one
or two inches too small for her. For in
stance, a woman of or a? Inch waist meas
ure usually will havo a 10 or inch corset
made. It used to lie that foolish myself until
I learned by accident that a fairly loosely
fitting co.-set really ga'-e tho effect" of shin
ness much tetter than one mado smaller than
it should be. I am rather stout, as rou see.
and in common with many other members of
my sex decided that a tightly littiug corset
would improve ruy flgur.j. I was taken sick
with a painful disease wjieh made it impossi
ble for rue to wear a corset at ull. In fact,
my side was so sonsiti.-o, even, after 1 had
almost entirely recovered, that I couldn't
bear tho slightest pressut- on it. When I be
gan to get uround ugain I found that I must
wear some support lor n y back, luid I picked
out the largest corset I Lud in stix-k and put
it on. Much to my surprise my customers
have ever binco remarko-1 upon m v alimuess.
This simply shows that for a stout person a
loosely llttmg corset is b'ttcr in every way.
iiei; ltics ovr.ni.Aprm.
'But aside from tho ciuestion of health,
which, of course,, is tho prime consideration
after all. tight hieing is .rtainly destructive
of good looks. Il impn-erishes the blood,
Impedes tho circulation, and thereby induces
the consequent blemishes . How many pretty
women you see every t av whose beautv is
absolutely destroyed by the redness of the
tips of their noses. There is a charming
young lady who comes here whose pretty
little nose is always disl gured in that way.
Unnatural pressure on tue body tends to im
pede the circulation, ind red noses and
swollen hands und feet are the result. I
do not dare to say anything to my customers
who are victims of tight lacing, for I would
only loso their trade, ga n their dislike, and,
after all, do them no f ood, for nothing 1
could advise would change them one whit.
It is a shamo, though, thnt family physicians
don't warn their patients more than they do
against the inevitable evL results of a contin
uance of tho Iiabit. Sevfral years ago, when
the preposterously slim, long waist was the
toshion, I knew of a young lady who was
suddenly taken so violently ill that for a long
time her life was desjmirtd of. Her case com
pletely puzzled and baffle! tho doctors. When
she was convalescing an examination was
made, and it was discovei-ed that so. extreme
had lieeu the pressure brought to bear upon
her body that tho ends of her ribs overlapped
each other in front. Her youth and naturally
good constitution were UI that pulled her
through. The young lady must have suf
fered untold agonies when she was up and
about, for the organs of her body could not
possibly have purformec their proper func
tions." "Is it customary for coildren to wear cor
sets" "Yes, it is, and there is no habit which Is
doing more to injure tho t uture of the Ameri
can nation. Children sli uld have the free
and untrammeled use of all their organs. I
am glad to say, howevei , that the habit is
not a growing one. In ;'oct, I hardly think
it is so prevalent as it wai ten years ago. The
dress reform movement has accomplished
wonders, and well informed mothers aro now
aware that corset wearing children cannot
grow np to be healthy w omen. There is no
shadow of excuse for young girls and chil
dren wearing stays, and no woman, unless
her mind is diseased by entering to what she
thinks is the fashion, would allow her daugh
ter's life to be injured in tuch a way."
"Do you have auy geutlemen customersr
"Yes, but they ore all e derly business men,
who wear corsets as a suport for weak
backs. I understand that there is one firm in
town who moke a specialty of manufacturing
men's corsets, but I have never been able to
find out where their place is. Ono thing I do
know, and that is that lots of dudes and
actors wear them." Sew York Press.
There Was No Occasion.
Mamma (to Flossie, who had been lunching
with a little fiiend) I hepo you were very
polite, Flossie, at the ta lo and said "Yes,
please," and "No, thank you I"
Flossie Well, I didn't, say "5o, thank
you," because you see I took everything.
It is a Cnnooi Fact
That the body is now sore susceptible to

After Twenty Tears. .
Baltimore, April 20, 1887. For over
twenty years I have been troubled with
ulcerated bowels and bleeding piles, and
grew very weak and thin from constant
loss of blood. I have used four bottles of
B. B. B., and have gained 15 pounds in
weight, and feel better in general health
than I have for ten years. I recommend
your B. B. B. as the best medicine 1 have
ever used, and owe my improvement to
the use of Botanic Blood Balm.

A OOOD EXPERIMENT.
Meridian, Miss., July 12, 1887. For
a number of years I have suffered untold
agony from the effects of blood poison .
I had my case treated "by several promi'
nent physicians, but received but little, if
any relief. I resorted to all sorts of pat
ent medicines, spending a large amount
of money, but yet getting no better. My
attention was attracted by the cures said
to have been affected by B. B. B.. and
commenced taking it merely as an exper
iment, having but little faith in the re
sults. To my utter surprise I sown com
menced to improve, and deem myself to
day a well and hearty person all owing
to the excellent Qualities of B. B. B. I
cannot commend it too highly to those
sunerlng from blood poison.

send at once and get a bottle of Mrs.

It will relieve the poor little sufferer im

there is no mistake about it. It cures
dysentery, diarrhoea, regulates the stom

One of the most Worthy Men of the State
gives the Public the Benefit of some
Truths drawn from his Long Life.
I was passing along a street In Brooklyn re
cently when I saw a venerable and benevolent
looking old gentleman sraiatlng a younger and
feeble man along tbe street. The scene waa ancb
an nnuaual one, tout I volunteered my help to the
elderly mm, and learned that he was the well
known doctor T. 3. Wilcox, and that he was help
ing tbe young man, wbo was a consumptive, to an
institution of which be bad charge. 1 accompa
nied them, assisting as best I could, aad asked Ibe
elderly gentleman some questions touching his
past history and bis rich experiences of life. Ue
replied that he thought he cou d put the matter
more clearly in writing, ,and at my request gave
me the following statement:
'I have been In the general practice of medi
cine tor fifty years, belue now over seventy years
of age, and have charm of tbe Sitnitarian hospital
located at No. 103 Lawrence street, Brooklyn. N.
T. During my lifetime of practice 1 have found
that more than one-third of all death arise from
consumption of the mugs or some lung trouble.
For a century doctors have tried to reach and over
come tbis disease, but have never succeeded. Few
people who have lung trouble know it; few peo
ple realise their danger until it is too late. After
a thorough trial of all known remedies,! have set
tied down to tbe use of pare stimulants lor all
lung difficulties, and I find nothing to pure or val
uable as DuftVs Pure Malt Whisky. One of the
superior advantages, possessed only by this whis
ky, is its onic power. It not only checks the
waste of lung tissue, but it tones and builds up the
system wonderfully. Jn the Sanitarian and in my
treneral practice, I use it constantly and I have
never known It to failne."
I was greatly Impressed by the sincerity and
troth of Dr. W Ilcox, and believe hla statement can
be mads of greet value to ail.
Advertising a patent medicine in the
peculiar way in which the proprietor of
Kemp's Balsam for coughs and colds
does, is indeed wonderful. He author
izes all druggists to give those who call
for it a sample bottle free, that they may
try it before purchasing. Tbe large

would advise a trial. It may save you

Having closed out a Lot of Remnants from one
of the Leading Merchant Tailors in Chicago, we had
them manufactured into Boys' Knee Pants. Among
them are goods which cast from $3.50 to $ 7. 00 per
yard. Now in order to give the Public one of the
best bargains of the" day we are going to sacrifice
them at $1.50 a pair.
Call early before the sizes are broken, because
at the price we are selling these Knee Pants won't
pay one-half of what the material is worth.
