The practice of uniforming our ser.
vants and oflcials proceeds apace.
-Middle-aged people can recall the ob
jections that were made to the practica
until well after the war. Possibly it
was the multitude of ilforns put into
circulation by that momentous iiel
dent, and the honor which attached to
them, that reconciled the puiblic to the
extension of tile habit of distincetive
dress. As th towin drvimkrd had ino
characteristic apparel except his rags,
so the townu colstable colsideroel that
his tinl star was authority enough when
he arrested the aforesaid, and a1s ser
vaits ill provincial towils ate with the
family the Idea of putting them into
livery was undreamed of.
But while we talked largely of tie
equality of mien in a democracy and
the disgrace of wearimg a dress which
denoted i service that none thought
disgraceful-or they would not have ac
cepted it-the Europeal fashion of cos
tuining people according to their em
ployinents has obtained such hold on
us thaut we 0 should object loudly if it
were (iscontinued. As the butler' is

"A thoroughly interesting experiment
ill lace Ilaking has beent carried out
this suiller at (rmviell house, oill
New York's lower West Side, under
the direction of Miss Katharine Lord,"
says the current number of Charities.
"Those who know the picturesque
stories which are woven into exquisite t
laces which have Colme dowvn to us
know that In several instances the t
art of their fashioning has been almost, 0
If not quite, lest. Many of the Italian
women in the tenement districts are
skillful lace makers, but their materials
are niore often thani not of the rough
est sort and of colors abominable.
Lace making has been carried Oil In s
connection with the work at South End
house, Boston, until it is quite past the
experimental stage, and the success of
this suinmers venture leads those who
have been watching it to believe that
such is the case also in New York.
Over thirty girls and women have been
instructed in one or more kinds of
lace making; further, seven or eight
expert lace makers have been given
"The plan Miss Lord has followed 1
has been to purchase the thread and
give it out, and then lbuy the lace front
the work ers-nuch after the fashion in,
'which all industry was carried on in t
the domestic stage. With the younger c
girls tle iistructionl has, of course, t
been very elementary; but with a V
skilled French embroiderer, with the t
ItalianI women who had spent their 1
time on crude braid laces and the like,
and With some Scotch -womteln iot un
familiar with the craft, very little in- r
struction has been needed to teach 1
the liller patterns. It is believed that
when a suiticient iniber of workers =
are employed, se) that contracts with
merchants can be filled reliably, steady
work can he assured w-oten and girls
to take up lace making in their hontes
and to mend old lace. For cripples and
for women with children, who cannot
go out to factories readily, lace making
offers an opportunity for work. It is
not to be compared with the ordinary
swvea ting inidustries that carry house
hold manufacture to suchl dire lengths.
