About Birthday Stoma,
While there Is a great deal to be amid as to
the folly of following the fashions Into their
extremes, and as to Klvtnj up one, time and
thoughts to mien affair, there would be a
Rood deal more to be laid if one did not fol
low them at all. There to not, at any rata,
much of the tort to be mid that ia new, for
srer since there hare been clothes at all they
have been wondered at and criticised, and
the "fashion" ha been one of those potencies
that even Shakespeare recognized in making
his weak niiudtxl and his insane retain ac
quaintance with it "The glass of fashion,''
cries Ophelia, conceruinu her lorer. "1 do
not like the falikQ of your garments," says
old Liear. "You will .say they are Persian,
but let them he changed."
1'rtrui-liio, too, knew no better weapon to
use in conquering his Katharine's sli re wish
new than these same fashions, showing more
knowledge of them than any modern husband
baa, ami tearing a pulsion to tatters over
poor Kale's gown, although his tailor said,
'You bill me make it orderly and well, ac
cording to the fashion and the time." To
flml fault is the olilmt of all the fashions, and
th. habit of doing so probably occasions
many of the frequent chuugm that the critic,
of the fashion so bewail. When all Is urged
against the fashions, however, antique or
modern, It remains evidont that their variety
Is in reality an attempt totlnd the one proper,
tit and becoming dress for humanity; that
the frequent change in an acknowledgment
of failure; and that as freh garments have
to be procured with the fresh season, they
may as well he in another mode as in on.
that has been tested and found to be not that
a hu h ia required.
Very pnmiltly all this Is not in the thought
nf the designers; they design a an occupa
tion, to prdiiH a variation, and are quite
unconscious that they are but instrument,
working out a part of the scheme of civiliza
tion, in the iMiraphernalia accompanying th.
scheme being a comfortable and suitable
dress for man and woman kind one which
shall be all right as protection from th.
weather, as allowing freedom of movement,
as combining the best of grace and usef ulues
and beauty, and th. elaboration of all this
being a prolonged a process as the elabora
tion of all the rest of this same scheme of
Of course it is not to be suppiwed that th.
devotees of fashion, those who spend all their
time and thought and money among the mil
liners and the fashion plates, who "lie ten
nights awake carving th. fashion of a new
doublet," are thinking anything of this na
ture. For undoubtedly personal motives,
decoration, the dnsire to outstrip one's neigh
bors, the desire to keep up with the times,
together perhaps with the gratifying of van
ity and the exciting of envy, all have more
share in the biiMnew than any philosophy has.
To another circle of people the whole thing
would te obnoxious were it worth while; but
as it is, anil since all the rest of the world
obey, bow foolish it is to be singular! They
follow with the crowd, not in order to be ob
served, but in order not to be observed. If
nature had provided them with feathers, so
that dressmakers and dry goods dealers, and
new desigus am' old, could be dispensed with,
and dip in a hrookwith some subsequent
preeuing, would answer for a toilet, they
would be tolerably content, nor even make
much stipulation as to the color of the plum
age, better satisfied powibly with the gray of
the dove than with the emerald sheen of th.
parrot or the scarlet splendor of the flamin
go. But as it has been ordained otherwise,
they wear the clothe, that others do, making
no great inquiry into th. matter, adopting
what is given out by those constituted a au
thority, ami thankful to slip along in th.
crowd, with no questions asked.
In Paris, in Berlin, in New York, in the
farthest Aleutian island, the women who
study are dressed with sufficient propriety to
pass, and if there is any want of chic, of
knowing how to wear the garments, that ia
not the fault of th. method of communi
cating the knowledge. But in Sitka, as in
Boston, Londou or Rome, the best dressed
woman will always be she who has not too
early mails the new mod. her own, nor
clung to it too late, nor been too ardent in
embracing the whole of It and in carrying
out its wildest and most prominent whims.
And the woman who is most jierfectly ar
rayed will be she whose garments and their
fashion never arrest the ey. purprMely, and
who, if the eye by any happening, chances to
fall upon her, it will be seen, neither defies
the fashion nor exhibits herself as it slave,
but whose dress, totally inconspicuous, is
thoroughly faultless the woman who obeys
the fashion, not as a matter of display, not
altogether as a matter of dress, but as avoid
ing Uia vulgarity and rudeness of obtruding
her own ideas upou th. public in a matter to
v which she has not given the especial study
max would entitnr her. to uo.i . v'As.rnrj-
Among the many amusing superstitions of
women perhaps the on. that does th. least
harm and affords any lady the greatest
amount of satisfaction is the wearing of the
birthday stone as a sort of amulet or charm
to bespeak good luck and to ward off all
those hidden misfortunes that the veil of th
future would most certainly reveal were It
not for this same potent talisman. A very
charming woman, whose birthday chance,
to fall in the month of July, insists that sb
never bail any luck until she adopted th.
ruby for daily wear, and no amount of rail
lery or twsuasion can induce her to appear
for a single day without having this beauti
ful stoue somewhere about her, either in a
ring upon lier slender finger, a circlet upon
ber arm, or hidden somewhere in the lac
about l.er tliront. It may be only a Uny
point of tire, but II suftli-m to warn the envi
ous fates that its lovely possessor is guarded
against their baleful Influence. The opal, a
sum of such unlucky omen that few women
will wear it at ail, loses all its objectionable
qualities when worn as a birthilay ston.

A native Chinese Journal, discussing th.
practice of cramping ladies' feet, says that in
Hsj4 the great and enlightened Emperor
Kaugshl issued an edict forbidding it under
heavy penalties, and calling upon all local of
ficials to suppress the custom. But four year
later, on th advice of the board of cere
monies, be withdrew the edict, aud left the
ladies free to follow their own tastes. Th.
origin of the strange custom seems to be lust
in obscurity. In the Eighth century of our
era the wife of an emperor of tlie Tang dy
nasty is said to have worn shoes only thro
inches long, and one theory assigns tlie prao-
tice to the Fourth century, A. D.t "when
Pan Fei danced Imfore the last of the sov
ereigns of the Tsi dynasty, aud every foot
atop made a lily grow." It is also said that
it originated In the Tenth century, when a
beautiful concubine of one of the emperors
Uod up her feet with silk into the shape of
the crescent moon, and all the other beauties
of the time imitated her." Th. oldest poet,
make no reference to the cramped foot, bat
sing of th. beauty of the snow white feat of
th. women of their time, when the foot
gear, when it was worn, was square toed for
men and round toed for women. Tb. native
writer think the custom was progressive,
and only gradually attained it present pitch.

1 he Wedding Bin; Finger.
The or gin of wearing tb wedding ring
Upon the fourth finger of th. left hand ha
been murk disputed, even from very ancient
tune. A reasonable inference from the cus
tom of wearing rings generally on the fourth
finger as a matter of convenience is given by
Macrobiot, a Latin author of the Fifth cen
tury, wh says: "At first it was both free
and usual to wear rings on either band; but
after that luxury increased, when precious
gems and rich insculptures were added, the
custom of wearing them on th. right band
was trans a ted unto th. left; for, that band
being leas employed, thereby they were best
preserved And for the same reason they
placed th m on this finger (the fourth), for
th. thumb is too active a finger, and is
too coran only employed with either of the
rest; th index or forefinger was too naked
whereto to commit their pretionties, and
hath the t litlon of the thumb scarce unto th.
econd Joi it; the middle and little finger they
rejected a i extremes, and a too big or too
little for t leir rings; and of all chose out the
fourth, a being least used of any, as being
guarded o i either aide, and having In most
this peculi r condition, that it cannot be ex
tended alooe and by itself, bnt will be accom
panied by some finger on either side." Lip
Worn a Should Study Polities.
If tber m on. thing mora than another
which the average middle aged woman needs
to make a i tudy of it is in matters pertain
ing to poll k-s, say an exchange. Having
never bad be privilege of a voice in public
affairs, women bav. become accustomed to
thinking Ix t little about such matters, and
are largely the creature of custom. All this
must now be changed, and to perfect tin
change w. -vill find that plenty of bard study
awaits us. Many a young school girl, fresh
from berst'idy of civil government once un
thougbt of in the common schools can give
many a print in political matters to her
father, old politician though be may be, re
garding "tl . government of the people, by
the people, ' aud Just how the law is admin
istered. Ask a group of women concerning their
tights and lberties under our existing laws
and probably more than half the number will
declare that they have never bothered their
heads about such questions.
But the ti ne has arrived when women must
learn to tui lk for themselves. Already in
various citirs women 'sclubs are being formed
for intellige it study of the political questions
of the day, i nd newspaper are read, and po
litical work are discussed, until one won

Girls Who Paint.
I was the Hher afternoon in the ark, and

It is said by Th. New York Sun that some

more stories aud odd phases of character are
to be found in these resorts than anywhere

agency is the last resort of many women who
are driven to desperate means, amlthoir man
ner when they enter the agent's office for the
first time is often indicative of the awful ner
vousness which takes hold of an amateur
who first comes in contact with anything or
anybody belonging to the profession of the
stage. The better agencies are now run in a
business fashion, however, and, though they
suggest servant girl employment bureaus on
a large scale, the face of the women destroy
the illusion. Beauty ia so pre alent as MS lie
