Nonrticlo of clothing moro distinctly re veals tho condition of a man's tnirso than tho trousoi's. Tho fraying nt tho lower edgo of tho leg, which Is sure to como with much wenr, is generally taken ns a sign of very nar- row menu?, nnd tho bagging nt tho knee, which is also inevitable, twsides producing a foundered nppenmuce, like that of n horse which is "gono" in tho forelegs, is n sign that a man has only one" or two pairs. It is as sumed by tho world generally that nobody would wear trousers bagged ut tho knee, with alf tho term applies, if ho could nfTord tha number of changes necessary to prevent this phenomenon. In fact, nlinost tho only marked diiToreuco remaining in our day bo tweeu tho clothes of n man of fortune nnd lclsuro and those of a toiler of moderate menus lies in the strnightness nnd smooth ness which mark the trousers legs of tho former. His wnrdrobo nlways contains a peat many pairs. At nny thentro, too, th makeup of n poor teacher or literary man, or poor devil of any kind, includes invariably a pair of Iwggy trou-ors. And though lust not least, tho condition of tho trousers in muddy weather is something which it is painful to dwell on, tho conver sion of an inch or two ot tho bottom into n wet and filthy baud Is only provcutablo by turning them up, and wo all know how thit looks. An effort has recently boon made to meet tho struggles of men of fow trousers ta oscnpo tho bagging at tlio luico by an inven tion of a machino called "tho trouseti stretcher." which is literally n metal rack on which offending trousers nro stretched over night, nnd tho deformity effaced by u power ful tension in tho direction of thoir length. It may, therefore, bo said thnt on tho whole the knee breeches were tho more democratic of tho two. They undergo no degeneration in wear, except what cotnos from tho actual de struction ot tho cloth, Thoy rovenl nothing as to tho condition of a man's wnrdrobo until thoy reach their last stago.
