It is related of the Duke of Wellington that he exclaimed as he looked at the headgear oi
the members of the first reform parliament? never saw so many shocking bad hats in
my fife." Rather remarkableisn't it, that aman of the temperament' of the IRON DUKE should bother about
thVhats the folks wear. This French pay great attention to headgear and footgear and are they not wise?
a becoming hait and trimly shod feet helps a whole lot. Isn't it the truth?
