Acult in appearing in his full gflry.
For a long time the femin.; e lement
have had the monopoly in regard to
daintiness and elaborate adorneent, and
it has come to be an accepted idea that
those of the maculine contingent who
say tucks, ruffiks or trimmings are
.tB#miglte tud therefore to be scorned of
salwart men. But several of the alleged
'cornful, suppoued to be free from all
vanitics of personal embellishments, have
confessed sub rosa, that it would be nic.
'0oull the medern severity of attire now
and tl cn be cast aside for the dainty

Pt'r tan foretathers-and furthermore,

A prominent society Adonis was heard
to remark a few days since that the only
fellows who now have a fair chance at
displaying their grace and symmetry, are
actors, policemen and baseball players
the policemen having only the slight ad.

official buttons.

ilege of the hose and doublet with Its
dainty and adorning velvet jacket, its lace

loyalty of woman that she is still able
to cherish the tender sentiment towards
the opposite sex In his modern attire,
unromatic, entirely lacking in the plc
turesque, and builded by the tailor only
for practical purposes.
The imodern full dress for the lords of
creation is but a trifle less inspiring-the
wearer not infrequently having the ap.

has had the misfortune to fall into the
hands of the taxidermist.
The expanse of white shirtbosom Is the
only concession to fanciful effect that is
made, and as if in apology for this weak

with a palliative air. Further apology is
made by the collar which tops the ensemble

elevates the chin of the miserable being

So the shirtwaist should be cordially
welcome, as should also the golf suit,

though it he observed that the wearers
are not always distinguished for any
knowledge of either of these sports-and
if a bicyclist, clad in a natty suit should
be frequently observed on foot-even
though one knows that he does not pos
sess a wheel-one should be grateful for
that remaining spark of commendable
vanity which inspires nman to concede this
much to the attractiveness of person.
