Dressing to Keep Worm.
A peculiar dUTorcnco between tbo average
American and foreigners in tbo manner of
dressing, preparatory to a change in tbo cli
mate, may throw somo light on tbo reason
why colds aro contracted much moro readily
by tho former than tbo latter This pecu
liarity Is much moro characteristic of tbo
dudo clement. I havo noticed very often
that wbeu the weather begins to grow chilly
a Herman, Frenchman, or Irishman, cept
clally thoso of tho middlo or working class,
moke very littlo chango in their outer gar
ments. A lack of sulllclcnt funds In many
cases prevents them from making tho
change, but to keep tho biting blasts
from their anatomy thoy pilo on
additional undergarments, which experi
ence will teach render tho individual much
moro romfortablo than the man with a buf
falo overcoat mid no undershirt. This idea
was brought to my observation on the street
on a very stormy day I was walking beside
a brawny Irishman, whoso outer garments
were a mlr of overalls and a long linen dust
er. Inside of which was a blue jeans Jumer,
tightly buttoned ubout bis body At a cas
ual glance one would think him half frozen.
I followed blm several blocks through curi
osity, but could not discover aay signs of
chill about him, while at every comer that 1
encountered a gust of wind I shook and
trembled deeplto tbo fact that I .wore a large
fur Uaed overcoat. St. LouU Ulobe-Detuo-snt,
