The Outward Signs of a f

By Amelia E. Barr.
(Copyright, 1900. the ChrlHtlnn Herald,
New York.)
Dress Is a very important Btepplngetone
to happiness. As all nnture 1b
the garment of God, by which he Is
manifest to us; an the Spirit Is clothed
by the body, and the body In turn Is
made beautiful or repulsive by the Indwelling
soul, ho Is dress related to the
body. For, supposing a man or a woman
to have sufficient money to dress
according to desire, then attire becomes
io minu an mat lorm is 10 suDstnncc. it
]b an Index, a symbolic language; no
much so, that a lover having seen his
mistress In her various costumus has
the key to her character, If he have wit
enough to use it.
Taken as a national Index of character,
dress lo the outward sign of a people's
peculiar genius. Their square,
gruceloss, scant clothes were us characteristic
of the Egyptians as their
pyramids and obelisks. The loose, ample-robes
of Asiatics arc the natural
drapery of a luxurious temperament.
The elegant of the ancient Greek costume
was the raiment of a race to
whom form was more than color. The
homeliness of Saxon fashions, the rude
magnificence of Norman barons, the
picturesque garb of the Scotch clans:
Indeed, all national costumes, have a
far deeper significance than vanity; and
some Daniel will yet arise who shall
judge the centuries by the way In which
they have dressed themselves.
The Cosmic Change.
More familiar to us, Is the cosmical
change going on under our own eyesIt
change that as a sign of our era, is
qulto as remarkable as any Indicated?
the rapid disappearance of all national
$nd class costumes. The pretty, suitable
dresses that clothed the peasantry
of all countries are being rapidly aban
yuutiu, uuu iiicu ^uu n?mcu *.?"?? iuuic
cosmopolitan In matters of'attire. In
every land, women now wear the same
gowns and bonnets; and every respectable
man on the planet is supposed to
have a tweed suit and a Derby hat. This
means much more than fashion and
vanity; It means the grinding to powder
in the democratic mill, of all signs
and symbols of slavery, feudalism, and
man's inequality. It means that men
an3 women are everywhere throwing off
the bondage 'of caste, and asserting
through their coats and hats and
dresses that ono human being is just as
good as another.
Now if dress has such a pronounced
and wide national significance, Its personal
power is even more remarkable.
"We are all influenced, not only by what
others wear, but by what we wear ourselves.
The business suit of good, dark
tweed, the white, fine linen, the stiff
collar and cuffs, give a kind or moral
support, and inspire confidence. A
loose, careless dress conduces to a
loose, careless habit of mind. There
is a positive value In the different
suits that men wear, because they are a
positive help to the frame of mind necessary
for the occasion.
Sober Resnectable Dress.
A suit that Is associated with the rc8pcct
due to the sanctuary Is best for
that purpose; there Is a sober respectable
dress that fits naturally Into
business moods; another that seems
proper?because usual?In formal festivities;
another of loose, easy comfort
for domestic relaxation and rest.
A man's happiness, yea, bis success,
in a far greater measure than is suspected,
depends upon such auxiliaries.
And it may be tak^n as an axiom, that
a man careless as to his dress will be
careless about every other matter. And
there Is no excuse for such an one at
this day; for In spite of criticism, the
male dress of our pirlod Is sensible and

ness; the soft hat, the easy coats, the
light llannel garments and soft ties
permissible in hot weather, leave nothing
to be desired, especially as men
haVe generally abandoned black, the
most unhealthy of all colors.
The fundamental theory of clothes,
then asserts the existence of harmony
between human beings and their artificial
covering,' and nlso hnrmony between
human being* and the work In
which they are occupied, or 'the circumstances
In whioh .they are placed.
Will Honeycomb says that he "can tell
the humor a woman is In by the color
of her hood." The saying Is a profound
one. and if husbands would
make a study of their wives' ribbons
and gowns and toilet peculiarities they
might avoid many matrimonial blunders.
I knew oncc a very wise man
who always went softly and considered
his words well when his wife came to
the breakfast table In a certain red
shawl. I have not the slightest doubt
that an individual observance of this
sympathy between dress and moods
would have many domestic quarrels,
and so conduce to much happiness.
Mind Symbolized "by Dress.
It is indeed impossible for the most
arbitrary fashion to eradicate, in sensitive
women especially, certain tendencies
to symbolize their states of mind
by their dreas. Most of my female
readers. T dare say, possess bonnejs and
gowns that theV can only wear.on days
when thny nre "at their best," when
they "are equal to them.'* There, are
days and moods Jn which curler, or

may know that when a woman's

coiled, when her bright ribbons are hid^TONSILK

when she herself appears severely

servants to account. And If he Is discreet,
he will not interfere nor ask
questions, for the plainly-dressed wo
man mean* business, which may fairly
be called "happiness-making."
It Is \a very useless thing to advise a
young man as to.the girl he ought to
marry. Yet the marrying man may
well take dress Into close consideration.
Ue inay, for Instance, be sure that any
girl who, without appearing' singular,
can keep at a good distance from any
prevailing fashion will make u good
wife. This, not because It Is a proof of
her being quiet and modest, but because
it gives evidence of her possessing
an art of great Importance In domestic
happiness?the art of making the
best of herwalf. Most modes of fashion
carried to extremes are ugly. It Is a
bunch here, and i bunch there, too
much drapery In one place, and not
enough In another: health, propriety,
and beauty are sinned agalnBt, without
compromise. The girl, then, who knows
how'to steer clear of these evils and yet
not look singular. Is an adroit girl, who
will make the best of herself, and of all
the circumstances she may encounter in
Require Variety for Happiness.
Women, as well as men, require variety
In dress In order to be happy, not
only for their moods, but for their work.
Work is easier when we come to It with
a dress that makes i: possible. Pleasure
Is not pleasure without the raiment of
festivity. Into the sanctuary, u good
woman likes to come elothed with the
grave", spotless garments of worship.
As an adjunct to happiness, dress has
an importance we hardly realize. It is
a conservative, not only of good temper
and self-respect, but also of love. The
woman who dresses herself to please
those she loves wears an enchanted
robe, embroidered with affection. The
dresH may be of ordinary stuff, but It
has been touched by her life-thought
and embalmed in her love. A different
colored dress, a bow of fresh ribbon, a
bit of white lace! Such little things as
they are! Such great things as they
"Vanity, vanity!" Is an old, worn-out
cry with regard to dress Men and women
both have a right to make the
most and the best of themselves. It Is
not vain to clothe the body suitably according

and grace. A woman without the art lack 9

satisfaction goes, the pleasure of being
beautiful is just as keen a pleasure as
that of being clever; and. perhaps the
more amiable of the two. It is no more
sin in a woman to thank God for the
fair looks and pretty clothing which enable
her to delight others, than It is for
a man to thank God for his accumulation
of money, and his ability to use It
in making others happy.
The value of dress does not diminish
with age. Not only for the young is
recognition of this necessary. In
clothes clean and fresh there is a kind
of youth, with which age should surround
itself. There are men and women
who are more beautiful in their
age than in their youth. Beautiful the

But for ethical purposes, every
other incident* connerted with this City
of Palms must give place to Jesus' interview
with Zuecheus. * It was a
busy day in that commercial-city, 'he
revenues, of which were esteemed a gift
a Koman triumvir might appropriately
bestow upon an Egyptian queen as a
love-token. A sinning pilgrim caravan
from Galilee and Perea was in passage
for the Passover at Jerusalem.
The presence in it of the Wonderworker
who had so lately raised Lazarus gave
an unusual Interest to what was otherwise
u familiar Incident. As it was.
the whole populace poured out. and
hedged the street on either hand * * *
The chief collector of revenue heard
that Jesus was passing. As he sat
There at the receipt of customs, with
accounts spread out before him. there
was a tumult of conflicting emotions In
his heart. We mnv almost hear his soliloquy:
"Jesus, who spoke the parable
of the Pharisee and the publican, who
has eaten with publicans, who lias ordained
one to he his apostle; Jesus, so
near, and for the last lime, too. for the
Jews will surely kill him on this visit
to Jerusalem?I will see Jesus!" On that
resolution a soul's destiny turns. Daybook
and ledger are closed, ottice locked,
and Zaecheus sallies forth, * A
less resolute soul. one. less fertile In resource
would have retreated before such
hindrances Art Impenetrable human
wall; nobody inclined to show the
odious .tax-collector the slightest courtesy:
rather to Improve the opportunity
to elbow and jostle him. But Zaecheus
remembers the Kgvptlan flg-tree fay
down and in the middle of the thoroughfare.
Jle runs and climbs Into the
low fork of the tree. Doing so. he
violates the eastern notion of decorum,
and makes himself more than ever the
target fpr jibe und epithet. But what
does that amount to. sn only he sees
the Friend of publicans? One smile
from him will repay all. * * * As the
contused soundn of the approachiat:
throng grows more distinct, so does a
holy purpose In the heart of Zaccheus.
It might express Itself In the words: "If
Jesus only culls hih, I will forsake all
to follow him." Ills mnKtpr n-tMKlnn
avarice, most subtle und Imperious of
Jill, has .received Its death-blow. '
Before he ever left the fork of the tree
Zaccheus was fur beyond the rloh
young ruler. No need of Jesus testing
him with the command: "CJn sell all,
::nd give all." Can thin ..inn, whore
life has been one of social ostracism,
believe his ears? In defiance of popular
feellnK and established etiquette,
does Jesus Invite himself to his home?
Will the great Rabbi actually enter a
house, the threshold of which no selfrespecting
Hebrew has ever crossed?
Fears he no ceremonial defilement? * p
* It Is no mistake. Jesus Is looking
on with smile of recognition and eyes
of love. In a transport of Joy the outcast
son of Abraham descends, and embraces,
in all the fervor of a new affection,
his self-invited Guest. Arm In

weight upon Jesus. Above the confused
ami threatening roar of general disnpproval
can bo heard at times tin? clear
and ringing Indlctmunt, "lie hath gone

0 In the portal of his lordly
manor Zaccheus pauses. Hi' Is grieved
at the Imputation cam upon his newfound
Master?grieved that he himself
Is cause of It. He stands forth, and
with wave of hand, asks the uttenllon
of the 111-humorod throng. In substance
he says: "You call me sinner. I have
b?>en such. Having lost all prestige
among you by accepting olllce under an
alien government, having no longer any
reputation to support. I have yielded to
the Insidious allurements of my odious
position, and have at times made false
depositions to Increase my revenue. 1
call you to witness that In every such
Instance, I will make four-fold restitution.

You say Jesus Is going to be the guest
