I; T. T. McDOTJGALr, : CERE DO,' W. VA. I CLOTHES AND THE WOMAN. Not Alone Vanity that Leada tha *oor Woman to Fit Hereoff Out According to Her Station. Tho average woman has round do ) lu dress from time immemorial. Civilisation baa dona nothing to erad icate this primitive lustlnct fs-oa; tho feminine h^art To tho Idle few it Is a business; to tha busy mm tt Is • hobby. Now and then we hear a wo man sa> that she ntihi's sb»' o«\»r had to tbink of now clothes and could dress In east Iron. This as a rule la a mere expression of Irritation -she , has bought something which disap points her or had to go without some i tiling she would like. A muu whose* dinner is not to hlg taste may say , that he would like to live on es-sences | P«t up In tabloids, but he does not menu It. But It may bo said, surely this ie a sweeping Indictment to bring against tbe vanity of women. On the contrary we believe that onlv a very •‘light proportion of women in any • lass are vain, though those few make lu all clause* a great show. Their small minds are concentrated upon themselves and they will sacrifice uuv thing for personal adornment. They are weary uulcss they are being ud mired Their cheif object in life is to push time, the marks of whoso pas sage constitute their chief dread. Hut many emotions besides \unity tend to the love of dress. If we begin at the bottom ol the soule, dress is the commonest and most easily recog nised mark of social dlstiuctiou. All respectable people below a certain rank desire that their clothes should udorn not only their persons but their statiou. A poor woman who makes uu effort to dress herself and her child ren conspicuously well Is muktng an effort to live up to a high standard. Of necessity she must work, consldet uud plan, and feminine human nature being what they are, she will not only think of what is suitable, she will sometimes spare a thought for what she imagines is fashionable. Other wise slio would get no pleasure out of her duty In this respect. The little •>irlH of the poorer classes learn very early to love smart clothes. They connect them so much more directly than richer children with all that is plcHaa%i, with outings and treats uiui Sunday dinners uud the thrill that ac companies a gift. Clothea and sweets are the favorite preseuta of the poor. They cannot ufford to buy toys Such little girls as grow up to be factory hands certainly keep the love of dress to an unfortunate extent, but the fem inine mind cannot content itseir with work for its own aake. Women are very industrious, but their natural wor.« is irregular and full of variety A lactory girl’B life would be unbear ably monotonous but for her pleasures, and perhups the most Innocent of these is dtess. Human nature bids her try to attract her young man—there Is no special vanity in that—and the de sire to rpend a little money on somt • king not altogether useful Is only the lowest form of tl.e inspiration which forbids- men to live by bread alone. To a very great number of educated women the thought ol diesa is a tHax niiun of mind, and for vhry mri ■ the money they spend upon drtms ih prat - Wally the only money with which 'hey ft el free in doing a -: they like; ami alter all that is otic of the greatest idea; tires mone" can give. Most wom en have a goot. doril of domestic anxie ty, and very many are rather short ol outside interests. It is no more waste of Tiiite to consider a dress than lo smoke a cigar, and shopping Is of ten an object f.»r a walk and always a change of seem a great utuny pro fessional women and some hard work d mothers of ranilieg appear to give no thought at all to their attire. It h» not that they demise clothes. They are overworked, an* have probably no recreations or hobbies. These rich Htid idle women who are commonly described a* •smart*’ have, wo admit, an Inordinate love of dre»«. We doubt. i"«««■>.-i, wnerner mey are specially vain in the ordinart sense of the word. 1’he averaKe of look" anions eucb peo Pl*’ 1h very bi^h, urul they all drese notch alike. Beauty stands out more ronaj icuoualy amf ng jwiorer people. The "aniarl" havf of course h great •orporate opinion of themselves. They weni to regard ^hemselves as apart from the world large. Hut ihoir delight in drear, hits more to do with an artificially high standard of com fort—to alter the old saying, a sense • hat rich people are scarce—than with anything that can actually he called vanity. The word “shibboleth” \* tbo master word in their vocabulary. They want to live as Ihe world cannot live, to talk as the world cannot talk, to drees as the worid cannot dre«s. On the whole, we think that pleasure in dress is a g< **} thing, hut its con sideration is one of tho^e amusements, which, to be profitable, should he en joyed in person—Th* Spectator.
