How Fashions Are Made.
Several years ago the present
king of England, who was then Prince
of Wales, was so unfortunate as to
have a boil under his right arm. As
a result of this, when he shook hands
with his friends he was compelled to
raise his right hand and elbow to the
level of his chin. This immediately
became the fashionable way to shake
hands, and was common in the
"smart set" of two continents. We
have not entirely lost the fashion to
this day, but it seems to be going.
