Nnw Yoiik, Jan. 17. It ncems rnthor
trango, but It Is novcrthcloBs tnio, that
men do hnvo fashions nnd tlicy follow
them with qulto na much blind docility
ni women Imvc nlways had tho natno of
Bhowlng for llielre. Wo hnvo always Blip
posed tlmt fashion somehow really was a
fomlnluo deity, nnd that men wcro too
noble, grnnd and bravo to deign to follow
anybody's dictates or to occupy their
massive bruins with any such frivolous
matter; but recently it has been borno in
upon 1110 that "llsh do havo feelings,"
nnd tlmt, men do hnvo n realizing eenso
of tho eternal fitness of things, par
ticularly trousers nnd coats yes, and
shirt collars. COAT, CAP AND GI.OVES.
Tills last fact, howovcr, will not sur
prlso any married lady who over under
took to mak,o her dearest Tom, Dick oi
Harry "n dozen shirts for his Christmas,
bless him." only to weep n briny, scald
ing tear for ovnry Btitch sho set when ho
triod them on, nnd then let looso his
flood of elonucnco ns ho nrrnyed each
separate portion of tho gnrinont for a
distinct nnd Individual sin from collar
togUBset, from button holes to tho hem
on tho bottom. And nftcr having brought
theso sins forth ho gives them tho benefit
of a criminal trial, with himsolf as the
prosecuting nttornoy nnd his wlfo the
capital offcMdcr; and then ho turns to the
stern judge, nnd condemns tho wholi
thing gcncrnlly and collectively, nnrf
only ends when ho is out of breath an if
tho dreadful criminal in tears. Ho would
go to 11 store, tell tho number of Inches
it takes to go nround his pimply, hairy,
old AtlnniH npnloy neck, and pay all
6orts of prices tor tho garmonts In ques
tion, una tnko what tho etoro keeper
sent him, only saying nn Impatient
big D nil to himself when ho found
them not half ns good as thoso hit
adoring llttlo angel or n wifo mndo for
him, and if ho over mentioned them to
hor at nil it would bo. to mako Invidious
comparisons. It may possibly bo that I
havo mentioned this subject beforo, but
it Is n subject that is always repeating
Itself In real life, and every brido always
has longings that way. So, dear young
wives, let ono who has passed through
that flro twlco in her lifo warn you.
Novcr try to mako your husband a sfnglo
shirt. iJclcgato that duty to baso hire
lings, nnd if you must do something,
why let it bo something ornamental, not
useful. Thero was never yet man tarn
of woman who could bo mado to beliovo
that his wdfo knowB how to mnko n shirt,
atter sho has nearly killed herself trying.
Why, I havo seen loving couples seek
divorces Well, I will say no inoro, for
it is llko getting married. All women
look upon a dozon homo mndo shirtb as
their duty.
To thoso women who wish to glvo their
husbands n really usoful present ono
that will probably not bo required of tenor
than once in II vo years, and when It Is the
occasion Is such that tho wearer is too ex
cited to caro whether it fits or not I sug
gest tho heavy twcod shooting coat, cap
and gloves. All of theso can bo mado by
tho wifo's fair fingers, by tho nld of a
pattern, tho material and patience That
additional pocket in tho back to hold
lunch and dead birds is excellent. Tho
front ones aro for mcdlclno in caso of
snako bites. Tho gloves aro excellent
protection against musquitocs, though
rather warm for summer. Now, that
coat, cap and gloves can bo mndo by any
lady, and only requires a tiny or two of
labor, whllo U10 sldrts need n fortnight.
Tills will plcaso any man, for If ho hunts
110 win like it, ana
if ho don't ho will
bo glad It Isn't

Tho trousers for tho early spring will
bo from 20J to 214 Inches at tho kneoand
from 18 to 10 nt tho bottom. Tho scams

trousers In general nro neither too looso

Tho highest stylo of overcoat la tho
Chcstcrllcld, nnd Is about 07 to 40 Inches
long. This is mado of black or dark bluo
beaver, though light weight cloth will
bo worn In eight or ten weeks, according
to tho weather. As it is just now tho
stylo in tho illustration is In vogue. This
is tho stylo of overcoat worn uy a Hus
sion prfneo who has como over to this
country to get n rich wifo. Tho ovor
cont is of Rcalskin with sablo cuffs nnd
collar.and ho had much troublo in getting
tho coat, as it appears he had no
monoy to pay for it with and ordered It
on tho strength of his engagement to a
rich widow, who heard of tho promiso to
pay for it ns soon ns thoy wcro married,
and, llko tho impulsivo American sho Is,
at onco destroyed his holies by breaking
off tho engagement. Ilo retaliated by
saying that ho had been on tho point of
sacrificing himself, nnd tlmt anyhow his
ma objected to his mnrrylng anybody
who would not sottlo moro than ten thou
sand dollars n year on him. And so now
ho is looking for somo foolish lady
who will scttlo upon him a good round

doubt that tho man who could not nay
for his overcoat will And somo foolish
naronts who will buy him mid his titlo
tor their girl. Anyhow, ho has set tho
fashion for handsomo overcoats.
Thoro aro soveral other styles of over
coats, tho ulster shapes and Inverness
capes being tho favorites with tho gilded
youth. Tho Inverness is lined with satin,
which makes them go on and off easily.
Theso havo capes and aro considered
very swell. Tho skirts reach to tho
auklo and tho capes to tho waist, which
gives tho slim youths much tho appear
ance of a half opened umbrella.
Collars aro Been in every shape and
width, and cravats aro as various. I
saw somo pretty China cropo tics, with
gold colored silk worked figures, which
wcro very pretty in wldto nnd light
tints. Plain whlto satin, cream colored
satin, gros grain silk and colored satins
and silks aro all mado In tho four-ln-lmnd
styles, which can bo tied in any way tho
poor martyr wishes.
G loves for gentlemen for ordinary
wear aro dark brown, tan and leather
color with wido black stitching on tho
backs, and white linen hemstitched
handkerchiefs aro preferred to tho whlto
silk or colored bordered ones.
Dres3 shirts havo embroidered dots or
small detached sprigd of flowers all over
tho bosom, though somo aro seen whero
thero is blmply n lino lino of cmbroldory
along tho button holes. Whlto linen
crochet and pearl buttons aro used in
preference to gold or jeweled studs, and
very llttlo jewelry is worn.
Another now and nniisoworthy fashion
has como to tho surfaco for general uso,
and that Is for each head of a housohola
to 6ct apart a certain sum of monoy for
tho uso of tho women, to bo paid
monthly or quarterly, as Is preferred.
This is an excellent fashion and ono to
bo greatly commended. It Is called pin
money, nnd though thero Is u general
belief that this fashion has obtained for
many hundieds of years it has never
been general hero. It ought to bo, for no
woman can respect her husbund nor her
self who is obliged to beg or coax for
money of him.
1 am sure that everybody ought to be
pleased with tho Impartial manner in
which I tell them tho newest fashions.
