Women us Collector * .
Mr. Carlylo's philosophy of clollics was
di'sijjned for men rather than for women.
hijys liio ftuw York Tribune. Ono of
liis lirst principles was the abstract idea
that clothes were invented for the sake of
decoration and ornnment rather than
warmth and decency. His learned pro
fessor discovered in tattooing and paint'
inn : mionr wild barbarians evidences of n
spiritual youuing for decoration , which
.subsequently gave rise to n desire for
clothes and ononed the wny for distinc
tions , individuality , social polity and
civili'/ation. Mr. Oarlylo was not so tin-
gallant as to suggest that a barbarous in-
Htinet for personal decoration was at the
bottom of women's desire for now clothes.
His was a philosouhy of tailoring rather
than dressmaking and millinery , He re-
horved women's wardrobes anil uccnmti-
lations of linery for the learned Tcufcls-
drockh of tin ; researches of another
generation. Possibly the learned Tetifels-
urockh ot thu future will lind the solution
of this mystery in a strange transaction
which has recently occurred in Paris.
A French ladv of distinction' , who re
cently died in that city , Jeft behind so
great a stock of apparel that her exe
cutors despaired of disposing of it among
n large circle of relatives and acquaint
ances. They hud n compluto inventory
made of the wardrobe , and then Bold it
piece by piece at auction. It comprised
seventy magnificent costumes of silk ,
plush velvet satin and other materials
fifteen mantles trimmed with rare furs
innumerable dressing-gowns , paletots ,
riding-habits' jackets , etc ; seventy petti
coats , and silk , plush and satin under
clothing in enormous quactity ; nearly
tli roe hundred pocket-handkerchiefs ; one
hundred and sixty five pairs of stocking
sixty pairs of shoes ; forty pairs of gai
ters ; ono hundred bonnets or hats ; ten
mutts ; forty umbrellas nml parasols , nnc
other articles in similar profusion. It
was not a lot of old clothes. Everything
was new and fresh and of thu finest
quality ; and the entire wardrobe , while
it when at a great sacrifice * brought over
fltt.OOO. Its original cost was estimated
nt six or seven times as much.
The sale seems to have excited great
interest in Paris among both sexes , the
inventories being extensively advertised
and commented upon. Various lectures
on women's extravagance have been
read by aerld journalists- the sale on
thu whole was regarded as beneficial for
the interests of the gentler six , since it
enabled wives to contrast their own
modest possessions with the wardrobe of
a well known lady of fashion , und to
claim for themselves considerable talent
for cconomv. ' It was reserved , however ,
for Al. Pille't in the Uobats to draw the
philosophical deduction that the extent
of the wardrobe Indicated that the de
ceased leader of fashion had collected
clothes very much as wise men collect
paintings , etchings , autographs , books ,
ems , portraits , coins or postage stamps.
§ he had not worn ono out of forty of her
lavish purchases , and evidently had not t
admired them from any sense of need or
to satisfy what Air. C'arlylo styled "tho
decorative instinct" of the human family.
She simply followed the bent of her mind
as a collector of new and beautiful ob
jects. If she was in any sense a typo of
nor sex , the suggestion is ono which may
explain many mysteries of the boudoir
and closet. It mar resolve what vulgar
prejudice has condemned as wanton ex
travagance into the common practice
known among men us "making collec
tions. " Certainly if men are wise in
their generation when they gather to
gether antiquities of all sorts , women in
tneir turn may bo pardoned if they rank
also as colluctiors of providing costumes
nnd mode , _

Homo EnclUli Women's Work.
English women in this generation lmv <

show tun gold or silver pointed ribs.
The fabrics of which parasols arc con

A Little Ijccturc to Women ,
liutt'ulo Express : One hundred to one ,
if you chancu to come up behind two
women walking on a plunk sidewalk , on
both sides of which arc inches of mud ,
yon will bo forced to stop out into that
mud , beg the women to let you pass dry-
shodor rudely push by them. Why should
this state of affairs exist ? You say tliat
real ladies will always concede the right
of way. But , my dear fellow , it will not
do to call only one woman in 1,000 a lady
they are all ladies in this glorious union.
Wo must look deeper for the reason. It
is not want of natural politeness on the
part of our women it is simply thought
lessness common enough with all
The Sweet Seventeen of To-Day.
London Society : The old traditions arc
vanishing ono by one. Sweet seventeen ,
with her slice of bread and butter and
her blushing little simper , has given
place to thu maturity of twenty-seven.
The low voice , that "inost excellent thing
in woman , " is replaced by the loud du-
thuit tone that will be heard. The fash
ionable young woman ot to-day steps
trom the carriage , leaving her mother to
follow her up to the steps and into the
house as bust she may. Only the minority ,
whose "good manners are the fruit of
noble mind , " pay the gentle deference to
elders that is so swuol to them and so
pleasant to seu.
A Society Girl's Summer Outfit.
Now York Letter in Scr.inlon Truth :
A society girl showed the other day her
summer outing outfit. There were palo
pink and green ribbed silk vests and silk
stocking to match , and white china silk
night gowns with lace frills. The latter
are HO like nothing on a hot sumnlcr
night that ono is glad to spend a super
fluous $15 on each just to keep cool. The
other sots were of fine linen cambric
and nainsook with a narrow edge of lace
on the neck , but a flounce on the bottom ,
by order of the extravagant wearer.
A Now Kind of "Elevator Boy. "
Chicago News : In all this town I
know but ono woman elevator boy. Per
haps elevator conductor , or dnvnr , or
engineer , or manipulator , or something
el o would sound better than elevator
boy , hut it wouldn't bo half so commoner
or expressive. This woman elevator boy
is the prettiest boy I know
of engaged in that field of useful
ness. Shu makes her toilet carefully ,
dresses well and wears thu neatest of
gloves. Her eyes , her hair , her lips ?
I'm not going to say anything about
them , nor yet a word about her com
plexion , nor the soft , sweet voice in
which she calls out "second" "fourth , "
and the numbers of other floors. Nor
yet am I going to give the namu of the
building wherein she is employed , for
that would not be fair to her.
Already her elevator is the most
popular ono in town , nnd any hour
of the day you may lind hnr surrounded
by admiring crowds. 'Tis really won
derful the number of passengers that
elevator has to carry , and the proportion
of them who ndo from basement to sky
light , nnd then conclude that they will
go down again. Why this is so docnii'tap-
peiir to bo any of our business , nnd yet
the thought is obvious that hero is
anpthor opportunity for woman. She
makes an admirabloejovator boy.
Summing Up On Occupations.
Boston Record : The girls of eighteen
and twenty , who aru now beginning to
come forward to earn their own living
in various now wtvvs , find : i much easier
field than their elder sisters and their
aunts who tried their hands at "battling
with the world. " The world appears in
so amicable a light to all young women
who can do any ono thing very
well whether It u to manage a type
writer or a business enterprise that it is
not easy to believe how ditlicult it was
for a girl to find anything to do besides
school teaching and sowing ten years
ago. There is scarcely any world work
no win which a woman may not engage ,
no matter how ditlicult or extraordinary ,
if she have the desire and talent for it.
City Girls Prettier Ihan Country Girls
Milwaukee Wisconsin : It is ono of the
principles of modern sentiment that line
complexions are a country product. Pink
nnd white faces are invariably connected
with fluids and farm houses and a fair
and blooming akin is counted the coun
try girl's heritage in contradistinction to
that of her town sister. The country
girl has not only not abettor complexion
than the town girl she has a decidedly
worsu complexion. Take a company of
town girls nnd a company of country
girls where will you find the smooth
clear , fresh looking faces ? General ! }
among the former. And the thiek ,
colorless , lifeless skins ? Generally among
the latter. This is a fact that any oiu
rtoantjr UN the HlKhoot Trump.
Milwaukee Wisconsin : Beauty is the
highest trump ever held in the hand < >
women. Of course , alone it cannot
always uxpuct to win ; admirable quail
ties hold and will hold their own ngainsi
it ; but other things being equal , a proth
face has a long start in thu race. 1
holds nine chances out of every ton toi
success in any undertakingfrom the COM
elusion of a "good match1' downward I
beg your highness'pardon , from thu con
elusion of a good match upward.

It has been a complaint that fashions were
