gue»-ing bow great a sum might have

i the linesfar in spite of patient self
sacrifice and unfaitering devotion at
the bedsMea of the wounded in the
hospital, or in ministering to the
needs of relative* and dependent, at
i borne. the Southern women of tbo-e
devs are credited with as keen an in
terest in tbe fashions as
women everywhere in civilized lands
are apt to be in time- of peace. It
was natural that they »boul>i be «o in
terested. even though that interest
could in the main not reach beyond
theory. Without it they often would
have had a charm the less and a pang
the more. Any feminine garment in
the *ba|>e of cloak or Ixmnet or dre-s
which chanced to come from the
North wa« rea-iily awarded it- meed
of prai<e. and reproduced by sharp
evetl observers. hi far as the scarcity
of materials would admit.
But fashion's niln were necessarily
much relaxed in tbe .- mthern Con
federacy so far as practice went when
even such article- as pins brought
through the blockade sold for 112 a
paper, and needles tor $lO, with not
enough of either.

i to r the sate of the pin itself, which it j
«rj- a -troke of hapj y fortune to tind
and !*ize, than of any otJier good luck \
that wa» to accompany the finding. '
The broken neetiles of t'onfe»ierate
time* did not eu into the fire nor out
of the window, but was care
fully laid until the red -ealmg
wax of the ransacked desks
and secretaries lent it a head where
with to apfear a- a handsome and
useful pin. To obtain the bare ma
terial* out of which to fashion gar
ments for the family and for the -er
vants soon became a serious question.
The house carpenter and the black
smith were called into service to Ibis
end. and cotton once more bwuae
king, though of a greatly diminished
sovereignty. Carding combs of a
rough pattern were constructed for
the purp of converting raw cotton
into batting, and thence into rolls of
uniform length and size for spinning, j
The hum of the spindle audi the clank
ol the loom treadle were the material
lutnie with which the women at home
met the attacks of the legions of
co!d and nakedne-~.
iv inning wheels, reels, bobbins,
loom-. and all the appurtenances for
the weaving of cloth were made and
nsed at home; and the toilers in the
cotton fields and the spinners in the
loom shed worked on contentedly,
with a seemingly sublime indifference
to the mighty struggle that was con
vulsing a continent for their sake-*.
Oi this dusky people it may here be
said that, no" matter what philanthro
pist-, politicians or philosophers
have sai l of them in the j»ast or shall
pgpphesyof them in the future, they
Were true to every tru>t imposed in
thetu; and with a most tremendous
power tor dire-! evil in their posses
sion, the negroes of the South in the;
day-of the civil war did naught but ;
good. It the "'colored troops of the
i nion army "fought nobly,'* the
slaves of the Southern plantation so
bore themselves in those stirring time:
as to merit no smaller meed of prai-e.
Cotton and woolen fabrics oi firm
and substantial texture were woven,
cut ami fashioned into garments lor
whites and Knacks. Plentiful crops of
riax reinforced the array oi wool and
cott »n, and many a little flax wheel
whleh in the days oi peace has since
moved North to adorn in its newly
gilded and beribboned state the l»ou
doirof some :e thetic girl, might tell
pathetic tale-of its former place of
re Idence, if the tongue of it- tiny
spindle had but speech.
The djfs of the forest wood hark-*,
of the hi mac. of the Carolina indigo
ami of the copjieraa from the numer
ous coppera* wells were utilized to
rolor the t i »th thus woven. We
rea i in th- current newspapers that
*'a handsome l»rown dye" i- ma le by
:t comhiuatif n of red oak bark and
Mm--tone in Unlink water: and that
"a brilliant yellow" may lie obtained
by poarinc boiling water upon other
conij>oneiil part' ol swamp
ba> and butterfly root." The same au
thorities tells us that "vivid purples,
reds and greens" were product*! from a
composition of coal oil and sorghum,
tinted with the appropriate tree Nark:
though of coal o:i for other purpose*
there all too little. If a gre ,t in
