WHEN ETIQUETTE WAS RIGID [WHAT OUR PUBLIC
Man of Fashion, a Century or So Ago,
Had Many Difficult!** to Con
Women considered It unladylike in
grandmother's day to walk rapidly. Ex
tremely rapid walking Is not usually
graceful, but so tax as being a sign
of bad breeding there seems to, be no
such idea nowadays: If a woman has
to cover a certain distance on foot In
a limited time nowadays she acceler*
ates her pace accordingly.. It Is un
comfortable, but hardly bad manners.
The man of fashion had many more
difficulties to encounter in*going about'
In society than he has now when draw
ing room furniture ir more substantial
and when there are neither hoopskirts
nor trains to become tangled in one's
boots or spurs. A hundred years ago,
observes a writer in the New York Sun,
it was not so easy, and a book of de
corum for young men, written a century
ago, describes the plight of the awk
ward fellow who, when he first comes
into a drawing room, attempts to bow,
with the result that "his sword, if he
wears one, goes between his legs and
nearly throws him down," and proceeds
from one gaucherle to another during
his presence in a drawing room: 'A
great deal used to be said about the
manner in which a young man sat in
a chair. To sit up stiffly was to to-,
dicate awkwardness and timidity. To
loll back was rude and indicated vul
garity. He was, therefore, urged to
"lean with elegance" against the back
and arms of his chair and "by varying
his attitude from time to time show
he was used to good society."
EMERSON'S ONE LOVE AFFAIR
Great Preacher Won the Girl of His
Heart, but Their Mutual Happi
ness Was Short.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, New Eng
land's famous preacher and philoso
pher, fell in love but once, and then
for good. He was only twenty-four
when he met pretty little Ellen Tucker,
then sixteen, the daughter of a Boston
He did not see her for a whole year
after this, but her fair face and fig
ure remained in his memory. Then
he returned to Concord, where she was
living with her mother and stepfather.
He became deeply infatuated with this
beautiful and delicate creature, whose
physical charms brought forth a re
sponse from his imagination rather
than from his senses. Bat Ellen was
not only beautiful. She wrote fairly
clear-cut verse, says a commentator,
at a time when it was quite unusual
for women to Indulge in such mental
During their courtship Ellen, or
"the beautiful friend," as Emerson
poetically called her, was seriously ill.
But she improved rapidly and six
months later they were married.
But Ellen's span of life was short,
and their time together limited. A
fatal lung trouble triumphed over med
ical attention, and when she was but
twenty years old she died.
