THERE Is a distressing rumor afloat. It hints that, with the return
to the styles of 1830, the little girls will be dresmd In exactly the
same modes as the mothers.
It may have been all very well to have dressed the girls of
1830 as adults, but one trembles to think of the children of today, with
ttielr training to Individuality, given this footing with their elders. With
Ihe- bit between their teeth regarding fashions, what If they would take it
to hand to announce their own romlngs-out, presenting themselves and
lurrying their social careers in other ways.
The little girl of the first half of the last century was a very different
feminine creation from the little girl of today, and ahe wore her mother's
Vshlons as a mere echo of the mother.
The girls today show no echo tendencies they are loaders.
Again, does every mother Just fancy the idea of dressing her daughter
to look as old as possible?
There are two very good reasons that the atyle wl'.l die an early death.
