ICopyrlght, 1801, by Edgar W. Xye.
Nkw York, October. Recently I went
jto the London theater for an afternoon
of pore and innocent delight. The Lon
don theater is not so English aa I bad ex
pected to find it from its name. It is an
American theater where one can see a
play that is mathematically and dra
STCDYIxa A PLAT.
' Friends' of mine told me to go there
svnd study the mechanism of a play so
that when I write another border drama
I can see how to put the border on with
out puckering the drama. I can never
be thankful enongh that I did so. I pnt
in the entire afternoon studying the con
struction of a play that has been thrill
ing the Bowery for a long time,
t In this play a maid with a feather
duster is seen at the beginning of the
first act dusting the parlor and trying to
think of her piece. This is well done
and dramatically accurate. The plot
now proceeds to unfold itself. In the
second act a villain appears with pink
whiskers made for a smaller man. He
moves about the stage to melancholy
- The piece all the way through is so
dramatically accurate that I could go
out for an hour and.know exactly where
they would be when I came back. But
I went there mostly to see Eva Hamil
ton. I wanted to see how she would
succeed as an actress. I thought if she
acquitted herself nicely I could write a
play for her next year. But she did not
do very well She wore yachting clothes
' and a scared look, but her voice was as
devoid of emotion as that of John L.
Sullivan, and her statements were as de
void of sympathetic effect as those made
by the man who calls trains in the Union
depot at Chicago.
I Qo ham, little Era. Go back to your
old life, whatever it may be. Do not at
tempt to be emotional when an east side
audience frightens you and your lines
light out like a scared jack rabbit at the
early dawn. It is high time you called
a halt. Go not to the quiet grave of
that deluded man whose name you are
pasting on the deadwalla in order to get
new clothes and bait the old deadfall for
new victims. I am glad the press nnited
on this wretched woman, this evil angel
of a soft hearted man whose life was
ruined by her.
Such women also hurt the stage. They
bring the blush of shame to the face of
the profession and do much to discour
age a young dramatist like myself from
writing the great American play. Let
as change the subject.
i Men's clothes this fall in New York
will present more bright colors than
heretofore, and the cherry, scarlet, crim
son and other bright shades for scarfs,
mainly in satin, are very noticeable. 1
write these ' items regarding men's ap
parel because very manyfriends sort of
look to me as authority each season and
expect me to furnish tips on etiquette
and clothing, as I am constantly in
touch with the highest and best author
Four-in-hands now are no longer the
only scarf that is tied by the proprietor.
There are two or three of them which
require a steady nerve, a Christian spirit
and an outside income.
It is no longer de rigger to part the
coat tails and arrange them in the lap on
sitting down. It has been tabooed be
. cause it gives ihe impression that one is
too thoughtful of his clothing, and econ
omy and etiquette do not harmonize,
r Gloves will run in various shades of
tan and black and tan; also the color of
the Colorado and Colorado Claro cigar.
A navy blue cheviot suit with a tan
Colored glove makes a very pretty con
trast. The cheviot in dark blue and
black will be very popular,
i Efforts will be made to force into favor
the old fashioned vest, made of all kinds
of brocaded, twilled and startling de
. signs, but quiet people who desire to
lead different lives will adhere to the
vest made of the same material as the
suit. Let those who are leading double
lives, aniStrying to keep the wolf away
from two or more different doors, wear
the honeycomb vest, the accordion plait
ed vest, the corrugated vest, the bro
caded and the birdseye maple, pro grain
and other fortissimo designs, but the
father of a family will not try it
Full dress will be worn this winter in
New York after 0 o'clock and until day
light on the following morning. . It wUl
also be worn on the following day by
men from btaten Island and Brooklyn
who have missed the night boat. Noth
ing can look sadder than the man from
Perth Am boy who is coming home at
noon in a dress suit which has a little
chocolate tciaire down the front to re
mind him of the annual dinner of the
Society for the Prevention of Publicity
i A movement Is now on foot to open a
stat of gents exchange tobe called toe
So Durban Gents' Consolidated exchange.
wt ere out of town men may drop in and
shuck their business suits and assume
the ewsing dress, then after the dinner,
If 1 till sufficiently lucid, they may iw
bat k and ko home. There have been, ol
course, small places of this kind before,
but this is to be arranged on a largei
and broader plan than ever before
known, and a competent person will pre
side at all hours.
A great improvement in men's apparel
this year will consist of the coat shirt;
whi ;h is open the entire length in front
and so therefore saves that terrible weai
and tear of the soul caused by climbing
hand over - hand up the dark interior oi
a ho and fn-mly ironed shirt. Let those
wtaot lot has been a more pleasant and
accessible one speak sneeringly and
light ty mayhap of the man whose sex
has doomed him to a life of unceasing
struggle upward through one of these
stiff and airtight garments, but to a
man whose hair has been worn off in
this v.'ay it is no laughing matter.
Nearly all 1 sundresses pin the shirt to
gether at the neck, and no man is evet
prepared for this, so he drifts farther
and farther away from that direct and
narro'v way which I am told is extreme
The coat shirt is not open in the back,
but o her wise of course is, to the casual
observer, similar to the shirt in common
use except that it may be put on with
out the usual affidavits.
- The chest protector worn in the even
ing over the shirt front, with evening
dress, is growing in favor along with
the lun? pad, the liver pad and the foot
pad. . Those who cannot afford the gor
geous i-a tin chest covering, which costs
from two to ten dollars; will find a cheap
and phasing substitute in the Sunday
paper. . f
Some put the street vest on under
neath the shirt on cold evenings. This
gives tt:rthe thin "and narrow chested
child of wealth a better figure also and
obscure his bright and piercing wish
bone. Try it
- Ladies will have different clothes this
year throughout A great deal of mauve
is to be worn this year, also green and
every stade of browns and chestnnt
Soft and fuzzy effects will be sought
after considerably. A nice warm bon
net direct from Paris, is made of a neat
little bin. -jay's breast with satin strings
which tie under the chin.
A very fascinating bonnet for street
wear during the more bitter cold weather
will consist of a mauve rosette with
mnskrat (kin ear tabs.
For sk.iting and Christmas merry
making a dainty little beetle with nar
row velvtt strings makes a cozy and
very healthful hat for cold evenings un
der the wintry sky.
Guipure and Venetian laces will be
used to kei-p Jack Frost ont of the other
wise exposed chest of society-.
Suede huts will also be worn this win
The Bedford will be the'popular chord
among musical people, it is said.
Shoulder capes will be more brief this
year than usual so as to show the figure.
Those who have abandoned the corset
will wear the Paisley or Bay State
A neat little eight inch shoulder cape,
a wide belt ana a kilt skirt will make a
very tidy costume when surmounted by
a neat littlj two-for-a-quarter hat of
some bright shade.
Avery nice riding habit consists of
skirt and bo-lice of appropriate material
and trousers with a broad gold braid
flown the side of the limb. These are
neatly tuck&l into the boot tops and are
said to be extremely comfortable.
Corsets will be worn by those who
prefer them, and there will be no fuss
made over tha fact More independence
will be shown this year than usual, both
among the women and the men, in the
matter of area. This is a hopeful sign.
The newspaper paragrapher has done
much, I belie'-e, to kill off the extremist
and the toady. Comfort will be the first
thing to consider.
Money will be plenty . this winter
among well to do people. It is said, and
should they fear a temporary stringency
the ftfmedy is easyt-for they will only
have to akin dividend or two, a prac-
