rOMAN'S DUTY TO LOOK PRETTY.
"A French author has recently written a
ok on "The Duty of a Pretty Woman is to
jk Pretty." Such a work, doubtless, has its
es; but it is of limited application. Wc
ould have rejoiced in a title of more cxtend
significance, with contents corresponding
the title. The subject should have been,
effect?word it as you may?the duty of evy
woman to look as pretty as she can: Some
imen are unfortunately not pretty ; but there
; few women who cannot impart something
comeliness even to an ill-favored face and a
sshapen figure, if they will only take the
lulde.
"We speak very gravely when we say that
im ofn fuTtr rnlnlinnu in Hfii rir rnflmr t-lifi# _
re are few relationless conditions, in which
s is not a duty. That cleanliness is a virj
is seldom denied. A pretty woman,
ubtless, looks prettier when clean, and arf
ly uglier when dirty. And there are duties
yond personal cleanliness. Neatness, tidiss,
follow closely upon it. But something
ire may still be needed; and something more
arly seen and properly described, is the
st possible spice of coquetry.
"A well-dressed woman, however little she
,y be favored by nature, ceases to be plain,
is difficult, indeed, to limit the extent to
ich a woman, by due attention to dress, may
prove her natural attractions, or obviate the
advantages with which she was born. And
it it is her duty to do this, whether she be
11 or ill favored, is something more than a
xim of mere worldlincss. To endeavor to
; utmost to please those with whom wc live
unquestionably a duty.
"A man marries, indeed, for the sake of the
mns <-t plai'ciis uxor. He does not take
man to his hearth because she is a philosoer,
or an arithmetician, but because in
incly language, there is something nice about
r.' It was, doubtless, the design of the Alghty,
in giving man a helpmate, that she
)uld satisfy his natural craving after the
mtiful, the graceful and the gentle. For
s was woman formed :
' For softness she and sweet attractive crace."
'he woman who forgets this, ignores one of
} great objects of her creation. The wife
10 forgets this, violates one of the primal
nditions of the connubial contract.
That some women are naturally more beauul
and graceful than others, is a fact which
ikes not against, but for our argument.?
ress is common to all. It is a consolation to
ose not naturally gifted, that there is a point
which nature yields to art, and the work of
i-n's hands is potent to supply the adornment
it vouchsafed by Providence. It is surpris.
g what a very little way mere personal beaugoes.
?> v. IIIUV ' ontidently appont to the expertice
of men of the world in support of the
scrtion that the efforts of art are often more
easing and attractive than the gifts of naro?in
other words, that well dressed woen
are more admired than merely beautiful
les. Accident is beaten by effort in the
eat Olympics of society.
"It may be agreed that taste in dress is
ireely less a natural gift than personal beauAnd,
to some extent, at least, the fact
ist be admitted. One woman has naturally
eye for color and form, whilst another has
ither the one nor the other. But there are
v women who have not, or cannot acquire, a
Ecient knowledge of the becoming in cosue
for all domestic purposes. It may be
ubted, indeed, whether the plea of incomtency
is ever set up. The real secret of inention
to dress is carelessness?indifference
idleness. It is not worth the trouble. Wort
do not always consider that what it is
rth their while to gain, it is worth their
ile to keep. It is no uncommon thing for
men to become slatternly after marriage.?
ey say they have other things to attend to,
1 dress is habitually neglected?except, perils,
on great occasions, when there is a dis,y
of linory and bad taste abroad, to be folded
by greater negligence at home. Great
pect is shown to what is call'*'1 'company
t apart from this there is a display of tincry
1 bad taste abroad, to be followed by greatnegligence
at home. Great respect is shown
what is called 'company * but apart from
s there is a sort of cui bono abandonment,
1 the compliment which is paid to strangers
withheld from those who have the best right
claim, and arc most likely to appreciate it.
is is a fatal, but too common error. When
roman, with reference to the question of
>:onal adornment, begins to say to herself,
is only my husband," she must prepare
rself for consequences, which, perhaps, she
.y rue to the latest day of her life.
"The effect, indeed, of attention or inattenn
to dresK?and wc include in the one 1 itword
whatever contributes to pcntonul
lieliness and attractiveness?upon the dostic
happiness, especially of the lower and
ddle classes, cannot easily be overstated.?
e plos.f.-nm uxor, as wc have said, is no small
t of the locality of home. If a man finds
,t he has not secured what he believed he
1 married, he has a right to feel diaappointWe
do not say he has a right to retaliate.
e obligations of the connubial contract aro
, conditional, but absolute. Negligence on
i one side does not excuse negligence on the
er; but it will very surely induce it.?
aen there is nothing attractive at home, a
t ? * *
n, However mexcusanie such conduct may
will seek it abroad, whether at the ale
Lse, the club, the theatre, the gaming table,
in what ia called "society." We do not
an to say that dress alone is the agency by
ich the erfttic properties of husbands arc
be restrained, but that it is a highly impor,t
part of it. Indeed, it may be asserted
it the absence of attention to this matter
( supposes the absence of almost all other
ltle, kindly, and attractive qualities."
I?-If our Maker thought it wrong for
