The announcement in the papers that the

many people, who vcryfikuly would not

The house was well llllvd wlu-n the

It in customary lor men to uncover
their heads when they enter it ehureh.
that it gore me a slight shock, or feeling
ol‘diapleusuro to see them even enter the
pews with their hats on; but they (lid
not sit down until nll were in placel and
then apparently at n given uignul, the
huts. which bore upon the left side a
scarlet and gold cross. not] over the top
It long white feather, were lifted M the
some instant, nnd disappeared from right.
To have taken them off as they entered
would have interfered nomewhnt with
the beauty otthc scene. for tho hats are
very picturesque. both in shape and
adornment, but it fleemed to me. that
more reverence for the house 0! Wurflllip
would have been shown ; both ends
might. lnwe been secured by lilting them
slightly. and holding them in pmition as
they advanced.
But. after all it in a mere matter of
prujmlicc or custom, fur women do nut
uncover the hem] at all,and to many alas.
of their hats have neither beauty or pic
lurosquenrsa to recommend them.
