ARMOR AGAIN IN FAVO,.
A Sarcastic New Yorker Holds Forth on the Advantages of Steel Suits. The Ghost in Hamlet Sole Wearer of the Garment of Knights. Protection Against Footpads-If Ward McAllister Would Set the Style-For Tramps and Militia, In olden tintes, when every country was full of romance, and every day was full of knights, all the howling swells wore steel clothes. People bought their clothes at blacksmith shops. When one knight met another he didn't say: "Who is your tailor?" but "Who is your blacksmith?" The Pooles and Bells of that day worked with a hammer instead of with a pair of shears; the anvil was their laphoard, and their fabrics'wlee steel instead of cloth. says the New York Sunday Journal. The men who wore armor were heavy swells. Stove-pipe hats are still worn, but stove pipe breeches and steel coats have gone out of fashion. Those substantial articles of attire have beeon given up for lighter and more cheerful materials. The bullet and the boxing glove have made them obsolete. Once a knight might have put on a spring suit of armor and started on a spring cam paign, without being considered eccentric, and without attracting any particular at tention. Nowadays if a New Yorker were to put on a snitof armor and walk up Broadway he would be followed by half the town, and would be p:obably be taken up to Bellevue, that Dr. Douglas might feelt his pulse. So much have fashions changed in only three centuries. Almost the only one wno now wears ar mor is the "ghost" in "Hamlet." As this armor is made of McKinley tin plate the 'ghost" must be ore of the most heavily taxed persons in the world. It is an ex pensive luxury to be a "Rhost" in modern times. Had there been a McKinley tariff in Hamlet's time the "Majesty of IBuried Denmark" could hardly have afforded to wear armor when he came out of his sep ulchre. Of course, there are army officers who wear shirts of mail under their brilliant and showy coats, and who may lead a cav alry charge with less danger than falls to the troopers who follow them, albeit a shirt of mail wouldn't stop a cannon-ball, and would probably afford little piotection against a modern bullet, driven by smoke less powder. But the use of armor is now reviving and soon promises to become popular and gen eral. In a few years no intelligent New Yorker. unless he is utterly reckless, will think of going out on the street at night without first putting on his armor. Many citizens will never walk abroad without wearing their armor, any more than they now go out on rainy days with out carrying umbrellas. The reason for the new fashion of wear ing armor is the large number of "'slash ers," "John the Rippers,." and garroters who infest the streets of the city at night. It is hardly safe to go anywhere after dark without having the protection of two bulldogs, a shotgun, and a squad of police. A single slasher struck down four or five unfortunate victims in a small district of the eat side in a few nights. In the vicin ity of Chatham square the average number of highway robberies is almost one a night, and, though the police have hunted down the thugs with commendable industry, the number of highwaymen seems almost in exhaustible. i or eve.) footpad who goes to Sing Sing, to iron shirts for ten years, two new ones spring up to take his place. The only safety which the respectable citizen seem to have is to wear armor. Every cautious citizen of New York should have two suits of armor-one for week days and one for Sundays and holi days. Ife might wear his week day armor to business, much as he would a pepper and-salt suit. On reaching his office he might take it off and hang it up; having one hook for his casque, another for his corslet, another for his gienves, and still another for his steel boots. On finishing his work in the evening he would l ut on his armor again and walk home in safety. If he went to the theatre he might ap propriately wear his best suit of armor, and sit in his box and watch the play through his helmet. The attire would be pictur esque and would be in harmony with the mediaeval costumes on the stage. On Sun days he might wear his best armor to church. On hoiidays he might make safe excursions to .Rockaway and Coney island clad in all the panoply of complete armor. Of course this costume would be odd at first, but when people got used to it thiv would think nothing of it. And. at last, everybody who defied ncustom by not wear inc armor would be looked uponl as eccen tric and grotesque. Elegant suits of armor might be made for uptown wear. Of polished steel, and ornamented with shining silver and gleam ing gold, they would be more handsome than the familiar end conventional dress suit. And, though they might come high, they would he far more durable, and in the end cheaper, for one sait would last a lifetime. Strong suits of armor would be supplied for downtown wear. A suit which weighed about 500 pounds, and was covered with spikes, would be axcellent for wearing in Chatham square, and likewise fo: every day wear in Mulberry bend. The moument a highwayman or a "slasher" caught sight of such a suit of armor he would take to his heels and run from sheer fright. 'The moral effect of the armor would be some thing startling. Armor would also be eminently useful in boiler explosions. T'ua thousand steam boilers are hissing with tremendous en eggr under the pavements of New York. and one of them is likely to explode any day. People who happen to be standing over a boiler when an explosion occura may be blown as hibh acs the tenth or twelfth story of a building, whlle thoie v:Lo wear armo:r, being heavier, will ie blown scarcely higher than the srcoid or third ltory. T'heir an mor will prevent them frolm taking any ex tended anarial voyage, nid will also irotect tiemi from thi fllyirii debt is of the buhldilgs in the neighborhood. 'o the quietly dis oased armor will le an Invaluable protection at'i lit the egg. . e siveners of professional figihters. The prize; ighter, or the chasnipin slntter of aii elec tion district, who iq six fIet four i'cli,. high and weighs '!50 ponltdr, will not care to attack a little man five feet four inh:le high, who weighs 110 pounds, when it is perceived thate little mln is clad in armor. 'he professional lighter will have a wholesome respect for lany onell wfo Lears a ulIt of armor of new and Lap.ovesd )atlerll. The advantalge of armor to society will he ilnlensee. ndlt when New 'iorkere once get into the habit of wuarln,r it they will not know how to do without it. COf course the armor will be a little awk ward at first, at ball,. 'I'ie cotillion may be a little slower, while the airy and mnazy waltz may not have that light and nimble quality which a:t present chlaracterizes it. liowever, a little practice will cnableo eee:y one to waltz and polka and sclhottisch in armor fully as well as in evelng drere.

IBut slime Societv peo ple may wear light armor iand so maintain the birightir aide of conversation. (i course, where all wear steel armor, few will be sensitive concerning what Is maid of them. Armor will be valuable in protect ing sooiety from. painful gossip. It is propbsed by some to have all the city militia wear armor to proteot them from flying cobblastones and singeing brickbats in time of r.iet. The cost would be comparatively alfght and would save a great deal in penaion. 'then the ystetm might be extended to the United Btated army, and the cost of war would end when the war was over. It is true that some people could not af ford armor. But tramps and alt such could be put in tin armor. Then tho tramps would go around bright and clean in their shining tin armor. A law could he passed to make them scour it every mornhig with soapstone. A clause might be put .in the McKinley bill to admit tin armor free so that it would be within the reach of the very humblest people. Suits of light bronze armor would be man ufactured for people of small means or for tlhose who prefer to wear cheap goods. Thev would be sold in the cheaper stores. Baxter street would be full of stores for the sale of tin armor. Tin coats could bebought there for $1.50 and suits of tin armor would sell for as little as $2 each. The Cohena and the Goldsteins and other enterprising merchant princes of Baxter street could vie with one another in determining how ci:eap suits of armor could be sold. Chath:em street could enter into the competition with suite of armor in checks. The idea of wearing armor is seriously advocated by many cautious, citizens of New York. It is believed that it will di ainish the number of casualties in the streets and make the city safer. It has been suggested that Ward AIoAllistershould be the nret man to wear it. If only he would take the initiative every one else would follow, PETITIONS, NOT POTATOES. A Little Blunder That lMade Trouble for the Sad-Eyed Editor. The editor could see that the man was trying to still a tempest in his bosom when he came in, but he never let on, says the Detroit Free Press. "Good morning," he said, with affluent politeness. "I believe," replied the visitor, stifling his emotion, "that I sent you a communication yesterday beginning with these words [read ing from slipl: "Col. Brown received a busabel of petitions from churches and tem perance societies asking that the saloons be closed," etc. "Yes, sir, you did," assented the editor, "and 1 was glad to print it in--" "But you didn't print it, sir," intgrrupted the irate visitor. "I beg your pardon, colonel," dissented the editor; "you will find it, I think, on the first page. I have not read it but I saw the heading of the article." "Well, sir, read it now," and the colonel fieroely thrusted a copy of the paper at him. "Head, sir, read," he went on, wildly quot ing: '"Colonel Brown received a bushel of potatoes from churches and temper anc. societies.' Think of that, sir. A bushel of potatoes! What in the name of justice, truth and equity has a bushel of potatoes got to do with it?" And as the colonel raved and ranted, the editor looked at the cold, cruel type standing out in horrid re lief and was utterly speechless. A Leader.
