E ARB alt wearing silk hosiery now;l wonder how many people
TTT know that Rood Queen Bess ot Morrlo England was the first
W English woman to start this extravagance. Do you suppose
she washed them out herself each night so that sho would bo
certain that her maid was not borrowing them?
In the last Issue ot tho Yale Review, Frederick S. Dickson has written
an Interesting article on "High Prices and High Living," and he gives a
short history of the silk hose, which he considers one reason for tho high
cost of living. He writes aa follows:
"Queen Elizabeth was reputed to bo tho first English woman to wear
silk stockings, and eTen as late as 1890 this sort of hosiery was uncommon
In America Today ladles with modest Incomes, but shapely legs, Insist
upon wearing only silk hosiery, paying 12 or more n pair and buying
twenty-five or thirty pairs In a year. This silken covering for tho feet
and ankles Is the fostor-parent of tho spilt skirt, for who would conceal
what Is obviously meant to bo confided? Silk stockings may bo had today
as low In prlco as three pairs for a dollar, and whenever a woman Is not
wearlnc this kind she Is darning thbm. In 1720 a cotton handkerchief
cost 50 cents, In 1870 25 cents, and at the latter date a good quality ot
linen cost $1. Today more- linen handkerchiefs are sold for 25 cents than
at a higher price, and they aro to bo had, In puro linen, at two for a quar
ter. For a man to discuss the llngorlo that today woman adorns would bo
a Dresumptlon; but oven furtlvo glances In tho shop windows convince' tho
gaier that Its variety Is bewildering, Its boauty entrancing and Its cost
