Bangs and Things
A correU~sp)ondenlt writ(es to ask
us if' it is proper for -'ger-ts of fash
ion and refinement' to wear bangs.
The (jucstiol is :absiurd. The C(ou
-titution does not aQssume to be an
a.it horit.y on the fatsihions, but
there are some umatters that n
authority need decide, and1 thlis
quest ion is one of them. If it is
prIoper for gents to wear ''pants'"
(and only gents wear '"pants") 't
is certainly proper for ge~nts'to
There was a time in the history
of the world wihen the smatl lhaw,.
having none of the privileges th'at
accompany the march and spreadl
of' barber- shops, was accustomied
to having his hair cut b~y his mot h
er. T1here wvas no "shingling'' or
half-shingling in those days. The
shears, trainled to their dlead~v
work, went straight through th'e
tangled shoek of the boy's head,
and left it in the semblance of a
mop. Sometimes the family su
gar-bowl was turned over the'head
and the hair trimmned to its edge.
This prodluced a bang all round.
But this is not what our corres
p)ondent is after. Heo desires to
know whether it is proper for
"gents of Jashion and r'efi nemen t"'
to wear bangs simoilar to those
worn by t he young ladies who wear
the horrible Mother Hubbard
gowns. We have no hesitation
in sving that in propmem. o gnt
to wear "bamgs." As a matte.a of
fact, there seems to be but-.little
else left for a gent to do but to
wear panti and bangs. Let our
correspondent take heart. The
world is wide, and there is room
somewhere for the gent with bangs
and pants, just as there has been
room beretofore for the young la
dies with the horrible Mother
iiubbards, and just as there is
r'oom) for the blonde young lady
with the red hat and scairlet para
