In a Chicago court a witness testi
fied that his brother was crazy and
had tried to kill himself by swallowing
coat buttons. This was a hard thing
to say alxiut a brother. How did the
witness know that the crazy man
hadn't merely mistaken his mouth for
made by a leading shoo manufacturer
that the women of tho next generation CDAIIMT
would have larger feet than Uie worn- OrUKAINIt. $
en of this generation. He said there J
was a growing tendency among women $
to buy shoes plenty large for their feet. I
And that women are also asking for
thicker soles uud lower and broader
heels. The casual observer must have
noted this tendency. Hero and there
women cling to tight shoes, wafer soles
and perch themselves upon the stilt of
a high and narrow heel. They do so
because eonio one sots the style. And
style, whllo It Is tho end of all con
troversy, Is Itself being modified by
the canons of good sense and comfort.
The short-skirted street gown and the
natural waist are evidences. Men long
ngo rebelled ugalnst skin-tight foot
wear. They no longer sfpieczo all Uie
blood out of their feet. Home of us
will remember a time when men's fash
ions decreed the high-heeled, tlght-tlt-ting
boot that could only be' removed
by an Instrument known as the "boot
Jack." This antlquo taste still survived
with the western cowboy. The causes
for tho new tendency In women's foot
wear arc to bo found In girls' gymna
siums and In the modern physical
training of women. Tho girl of Unlay
who takes long tramps to till her lungs
and color her cheeks, or docs her exer
cises for physical development, does
not want her feet pinched and does
not care for tho dignity of high heels.
She wants something substantial and

Manuel Garcia, one of the most re
markable men In the world to-day, has
recently sat for his portrait to John
H. Hargent. (Sarcla Is a Spanish singer
who visited tho United States In lctti.l
with an opera company and sang In
various parts of the country. Tho fa
moiu singer, Madame Mallbran, was
his sister. He returned to Huropo ami
taught Jenny I.lud In Paris, and for
tho past fifty years or thereabouts has
been a music teacher in toudou. Ho
Is a hundred years old, and la still
teaching, Ho wna a professor of music
In tho Hrltlsh Itoyal Academy of Music
until ho waa 00, when ho retired to re
ceive pupils privately. It Is believed
that the portrait which Sargont has
painted la the only one of a centena
rlan In existence, and (tarda himself
Is probably the only person who ever
taught singing In his hundredth year.
It begins to look as If the passion
for novel reading had begun to die of
Its own excess. Certainly tho desire
for this form of reading Is on the
wane. The sales of lOOt aro rejrorted
to havo been far below those of the
years immediately preceding. The de
crease affects all sorts of novels, from
the profound psychological work to the
highest (light of fancy In the daintiest
romance. Of course, novels will con
tinue to be read, for the story In some
form has lived through nil time and
will continue to do so, but evidently
the all-absorbing Interest In works of
(lotion Is alxHit to give place to some
thing else or perhaps to many things.
Heal life has Its fascinations. People
enjoy society rather than tho novel of
high life. Tho historical romance has
led to a greater Interest In history
proper. The sociological novel has de
veloped a desire for participation In
civic matters, n devotion to slum work
and tho kinds of activity that may ben
efit tho masses. Naturally, then, news
papers and magazines aro read far
mora than formerly, since they deal
chiefly with current events and with
thoso things which aro of Importance
at tho present moment. They offer a
glance of tho entire world and einpha
slzo thoso points whero present activity
Is greatest. They deal with the real
world anil people of to-day want facts
rather than fancies; llvo Issues rather
than the possible uarrels of hyper
sensitive lovers. Tho stage, too, Is
somewhat responsible for the decay of
tho novel. Tired people want enter
tainment ami often prefer to take It
passively. They can get tho contents
of a novel In tho three or five acts of
a play and tho accessories often given
a more vivid presentation of plot and
denouement than tho lengthy novel Is
apt to do. This does not mean that
drama will tako tho place of novol
reading to any great extent, for thero
aro evidences that the drama Is Itself
to glvo place to something not yet de
termined. If tho novel, has seen Its
best day It can certainly claim that Its
day wos a great ami brilliant one, that
It accomplished u genuine purpose and
that humanity Is broader In Its Intelli
gence, Its sympathies and Its activities
than It would have been but for the
great popularity of thu novel during the
past four decades.
