CLOTHING OF WOMAN.
EVOLUTION OF THE MODERN PROM THE (SAVAGE GARMENT. Covering I Irn ;I;ile of Hiirk Jlegimilng of the I'Ktllint, the (urwt, llm Stock lngs ami Ott Appttn! IMhbnnn i'lntfe Vhk1 hy Itiii'lfmrlrtiiN. "To ti-noe thj development from their primitive orts;ii of women h garments n they are wori toilny Ih very easy," ttftid Professor Mutton nt the JSational museum "You can nee ttin original of the petticoat even now among savatte peoples nil over the world In tli j shape of the universal waist cinctuns, vltli pendent drapery of Dark or what no',. "Tlio most U' itifnl illustration of this Is to bo found it presentnnioris the Indiana of tlienorthwitcoust. J. lie female anionu those tribPH ties a cord around liei waist und lianas therefrom iniiumerahle strinirs of shells, beadfi, line nuts and all sorts of things that are pretty and make a jiuEle. So sacred am these ornamental girdles considered that when the girls join the white schools and are obliged to adont civ ilized clothing it is very usuid for them to wear the garments under their skirts bo hind, doubled up. Many authorities aver that this is actually tlie source from which the notion of the bustle was derived. "The ciiictuni I have described reaches only from tlio waist to the middle of the thigh. As to the upper part of the body the Indian maiden of the northwest wears nothing or a covering, except in cold weutlicr, when she puts on the tanned skin of some beast, simply tying it over the windward shoulder anil under the other arm with strings. Thus you have an ad' inirablo example of the most primitive fe male costume. The next step in the de velopment of the upper garment is made by cutting holes through t he skin to ac commodate the armH, and In this shupe yon find the primitive and earliest form of jacxet. , AMONG THE POLYNESIANS. "Take a big jump over to the islands of the Pacific and you find the savages mak ing clothing for themselves out of mul berry bark, which they beat with mullets and wash until nil the soft part of its sul stance has been takeu out of it, leaving tho textile portioiu, which serves in that shape for a soft and strong cloth. A piece of any size can be made by hammering the edges or many pieces together until they unite so perfectly that it is difficult to find Where they join. "It is believed that tlio largest piece of this mulberry cloth in the world is at present In the National museum; it is six feet long by twenty feet wide. Among the rich islanders it is tlio custom for a woman to wrap as much as thirty or forty yards of the stull around the body, below the breasts, which are left exposed. The simple lengt hening of tho primitive waist garment makes Uiu petticoat us we find it today. "As for the jacket, its most primitive form was that of a skin tied over the shoul ders. Next the skin became a blanket, and soon , hole for tho head was cut through th' middle of the blanket, as in the Mexir , cloak called tho 'poncho.' You will d the Arabs even now employ ing the samo device, with the addition of holes for tho arms. Hy tho time you have got this far the jacket is pretty nearly com plete. All it needs to become entire are sleeves and cutting to the ligure. OltKllN OK COISSKTS. "Corsets have always been worn in ono shape or another by peoplo who were at all civilized, the necessity for some support for the bust being obviously tho occasion for them, and not fashion, to logiu with. Women of ancient tireece and Rome Wore a cloth bnndago wrapped about the body, more or less tightly, beneath the bosom for the purpose. Ill the timo of Queen Elizabeth the corset, us you are doubtless aware, was a far more formidable thing than it is now, in stiffness uud si.o almost like a piece of armor. Nowadays womeii Wear corsets because t hey mako their llg ures shapely, nud that reason is sullicieut to constitute u certainty that t hey will go on doing so for an indellnite time. "As for stockings, you know yourself they are of tlio most modern invention, us may be judged from t lie fact that Queen Elizabeth was censured for her extrava gance in procuring a few pairsof silk stock ings for .her own use. To discover the ori gin of tho stocking you have only to con sider the fact Unit, the people in early times, finding the simple sandal not very comfortable, wore it as a sole for a soft foot covering separate from it, which was the first lit tempt at luxury in foot wear, Y'ou can see t hat it was only necessary to stitch the Mimdal to tho soft shoe in order to mako what was fo all intents and pur poses tho shoo of f ho present day. Jlut the men of those, early times found it con venieut to wear for hunting purposes leg gings to protect their limbs from the thorns and burrs, llenco have boon devel oped what w c know as breeches or t rousers. Keeently there has reached the museum u pair of ancient leggings of the sort de scribed attached by sewing to the soft undersoloB. Hero you have what is doubt less the original form of stocking. NATUIAL lllS'l'OliV OK liillUONS. "Nothing is moro closely identified with womeu's dress today than ribbons. What, then, is t lio origin of ribbons? You can discover it very simply by looking at th long fringe of strips into which tho primi tive savago cuts the deer hide or other skins that forms his garment or his to bacco pouch or whatever else of liisorrm ineutal possessions you please. Why iloos the savage go to tho trouble of cutting the beast's hide into such strips? it is because the eye is pleased Willi waving curves. "When savage fashionsiiieigeil intocivil linod fashions this idea was retained, and so at present we find weavers and makers of stuffs mnnufacl tiring their fabrics into what we call ribbons. They are adopted peculiarly by women in t his age, when the masculine sex eschews ornament in civil ized life almost wholly. "The hat, in its origin, is a ( lung purely ornamental. Except in arctic climes, where as much as possible of tho body must 1)0 covered to keep out the cold, sav ages have never thought of protect ing the head. With us it is n matter purely of cul tivationthe necessity for a head covering growing out of t he Juibit of employing it. Tho beginning of tho hot was what you iind it among savage peoples today a tuft of feathers, a bunch of porcupine 1 1 1 i 1 1 s or what not." Washington Star. Ititliy tliiekcN.

It is often interesting to note the private habits und manners of men who play lead Ing parts on the public stage. There was a blockade of street cars at I'ark row, just in front of the postollice, nt 6 o'clock one night. A tall man, with pipe stem legs and a slender torso which seemed scarcely capable or sustaining the massive, tower ing head, sauntered along, with one hand in the right trousers pocket, deeply ab sorbed in thought. A crowd was awaiting the lifting of the blockade. The mun, after a careless up ward glance, scrambled over the platforms of two cars with his eyes still fixed down ward as if in a brown study. The crowd accepted tho lesson. He entered a Sixth avenue "IV car in which he took the only vacant seat. At Chambers street a poorly dressed woman entered. No one stirred. A min tlte afterward the man looked up. Bound ing from his scat, hat in hand, with a low bow and a deeply courteous one, he said, "Allow mo to otter you a Boat, madam. With thanks the woman accepted and closely watched the face of tho man, which was in an instant again wrapped in the ab stract expression of deep meditation. For ten blocks the woman's eyes rested on that strong, intellectual face. Suddenly she turned to a man sitting at her side, "Do you know that gentleman?" she asked. - mat's joe iuonie, tno great lawyer," was the reply. "Oh," she ejaculated with an air of relief, "I was sure he was somebody." New lurk Telegram. Two Interpretations. A great deal has been said of late about Marie Haslikirtseff, a tolented and egotisti cal young Iiussian girl, who at her early dentil was un artist of recognized ability. but who is chiefly to be remembered for Aer great lovo and admiration of self. Among her other gifts she had a strong sense of humor, anil one absurd occur rence in her mother's drawing room is said to have delighted her beyond mens lire. One day a man of some pretension was calling upon Mme. Haslikirtseff, and his hostess wondered within herself wheth er tho (lay's bill of fare would justify her inviting him to dinner. She called a serv ant and gavo him a whispered direction to find out what tho cook had for them. Tho man departed on his errand, and tho visitor began telling an entertaining but ruther extravagant anecdote. Just as he reached the most incredible part the butler threw open the door and announced distinctly, "Madame, e'est un canard" (Madame, it is a duck). I ho company burst into irrepressible laughter, for the term "canard" is applied by the French to any wildly improbable story. Youth s Companion. Scotch Middle Class Thrift. A Scotch woman, the wife of a I'hilade ptua merchant, returned Irom lier own land witli some very funny stories of the canny middle class Caledonians. As a girl the nearness characterizing them was un noticed, but after living on this side, she says, American liberality in money mut ters com rusts very strikingly with Scotch thrift. Her first outing after getting home was on tlio invitation of a voung man, a cousin, who was civil enough to ask her to a county flower show. As his father's carriage was used in transporting them to tho show no ques tion of who was to pay arose until thev reached tho entrance. Hero the lady, ac customed to having her escort mako ar rangements, stood gazing idly about, giv ing the matter no further thought. Pict ure her rude awakening to national customs when Cousin Kobin gave her elbow a gentle nudge, and in the most matter-of-fact way advised her of the sum necessary to purchase a ticket. "Just you step over there, .leanie, and pay it to that man in tho plaid." It was not altogether stinginess, she continued, for, once inside, Hobin bought her a nosegay costing three times the price of admission. Illustrated American. Shaving with Vnsplinr. A friend of mine a few months ago told mo how to shave easily and painlessly, and I have never shaved In a barber's shop since. The plan is to use oil or grease in stead of soap to prepare t he chin and soften the beard. Vaseline is (lie most convenient, and it should be rublsd in quite freely. Then, with n keen razor, shaving can bo done quickly and without, a suspicion of pain. At first I couldn't reconcile myself lo doing without the orthodox lather, and used soap after the vaseline had been ap plied. Hut the soap is really unnecessary, and shaving with oil or vaseline is cleaner, as well as pleasant er, and what is moro to tho point, there is no irritation whatever to the skin.

Indigestion IS not only a distressing complaint. of itself, but, by causing the hiood to become depraved and the system en feebled, is the parent of innumerable maladies. That Ayer's Sarsaparilla 1b the best cure for Indigestion, even when complicated with Liver Complaint, is proved by the following testimony from Mrs. Joseph Lake, of Brock way Centre, Mich.: "Liver complaint and indigestion made my life a burden and came near ending my existence. For more than four years I suffered untold agony, was reduced almost to a skeleton, and hardly had strength to drag myself about. Ail kinds of food distressed me, and only tlie most delicate could be digested at all. Within the time mentioned several physioiauB treated me without giving re lief. Nothing that I took seemed to do any permanent good until I commenced the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, which has produced wonderful results. Soon after commencing to take the Sarsapa rilla I could see an improvement in my condition. My appetite began to return and with it came the ability to digest all the food taken, my strength im proved each day, and after a few months of faithful attention to your directions, I found myself a well woman, ablo to attend to all household duties. The medicine has given me a new lease of life." Ayer's Sarsaparilla PREPARED BY Dr. J. C. Ayer tc Co., Lowell, Mass. Price 1 ; six bottles, $5. Worth (5 a bottle- KILLER.

It Is Pleasant to the Taste as tho Sweetest Nectar. It is Safe and Harmless as the Purest Milk, This wonderful Nervine Tonic has only recently been introduced into iV.'i country by the Great; South American Medicine Company, and yet ita jneat value as a curative agent has long been known by the native inhab itants of South America, who rely almost wholly upon its great medicinal powers to euro every form of disease by which they are overtaken. This new and valuable South American medicine possesses powers and qualities hitherto unknown to tho medical profession. This medicine has completely solved the problem of tho cure ot Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Liver Complaint, and diseases of the general Nervous System. It also cures all forms of failing health from whatever cause. It-performs this by the Great Nervine Tonic qualities which it possesses and by its great curative powers upon the digestive organs, the stomach, tho liver and the bowels. No remedy compares with this wonderfully valuablo Nervine Tonic as a builder ana etrengthener of the life forces of the human body and as a great renewer of a broken down constitution. It is also of more real permanent value in tha treatment and euro of diseases of tho Lungs than any ten consumption rem edies ever used on this continent. It i3 a marvelouscure for nervousness of females cf" all ages. Ladies who are approaching the critical period known as change in life, should not fail to use this great Nervine Tonic almost constancy for tho spaco of two or three years. It will carry them safely over the danger. This great etrengthener and curative is of inestimablo value to the aged and infirm,, because its great energizing properties will give them a new hold on life.

As a cure for every class of Nervous Diseases, no remedy has been able to compare with the Nervine Tonic, which is very pleasant and harmless in 11 its effects upon the youngest child or tho oldest and most delicate individ ual. Nine-tenths of all tlie ailments to which the human family is heir, arc dependent on nervous exhaustion and impaired digestion. When there is an sufficient supply of nerve food in tho blood, a general Btate of debility of tne brain, spinal marrow and ncrve3 is tho result. Starved nerves, like starved muscles, become strong when the right kind of food is supplied, and tj thousand weaknesses and ailments disappear a3 th? nerves recover. As tho tiervous system must supply all the power by which tho vital forces of tho !body are carried on, it is the first to suffer for want of perfect nutrition. Ordinary food does not contain a sufficient quantity of tho kind of nutriment necessary to repair tho wear our present mode of living and labor imposes upon the nerves. For this reason it becomes necessary that ajierve food bo supplied. This recent production of the South American Continent has been found, by analysis, to contain the essential elements out of which nerve tissuo is formed. This accounts for its magic power to cure all forms of nervous derangements. Ceawfobdsvihb, Ind., Aug. 20, '88.
