Bobby begged his mamma to buy

Fashion and Common Sonso
If there is one locality more than
another where the voice of common
sense is never listened to it is in that
very extensive one where fashion
reigns. Who over thinks of listening
to the suggestions of the former, when
the decree of the latter potentate has
gone forth? Tight sleeves for the
ladies, and tight continuations for the
gentlemen is the fashion, supposing.
Tlie advocates of common sense pro
test, saying, it is impossible to move
one's limbs in them ; I cannot bend
the knee before the portrait of my
fondest hopes, says one; I cannot
get my hands to the back of my head,
says another, which is far more im
portant. And fashion replies, I can
not satisfy all tastes. My laws are
mostly made for the unreflecting; if
you reflect 3ou will never be satisfied.
That which yon complain of now is
only a temporary inconvenience;
when I can no longer tighten in your
limbs, sleeves and leggings will take
such ample proportions that the real
size of an arm or a leg will be a sub
ject for divination. Fashion has no
respect of person ; if high heels are
introduced for the benefit of short
people, low heels are never intro
duced at the same time for people
who are already taller than they care
to be. The latter must wait their
turn for the opposite fashion, and
then unusually short persons must
havo their boots made to order if the'
wish to reach up to the elbow of their
superior in height, or Bubmit to be
looked upon as dwarf by tall people,
if they prefer to keep in the fashion.
Fashion pretends to have an eye
for beaut j' ; if this be true, she enacts
at least that all her followers be
modelled after the same fashion.
They must hae heads and faces of a
uniform size and shape, that the hat
or bonnet of the season may become
them all, and they must have a uni
form tint of complexion, that the
color a la.mode may suit "it. Those
who study fashion in dres3 at the ex
pense of their personal comfort are
surely wanting in common sense, yet
we most of us do so, and it seems as
though we like doing so, since the
fashionable and uncomfortable article
is preferred to the unfashionable and
comfortable one, though it may cost
more than double the price of the
Common sense suggests that in hot
weather clothing for both sexes
should be light in texture -and color;
but if fashion ordains that ladies'
dresses be heavily trimmed, and if
she refuses to give her consent to gar
ments of a summon nature being in
troduced for gentlemen, no one has
the courage to pay attention to per
sonal comfort. When ladies' skirts
are made so narrow as to be incon
venient for walking, and liable to as
sist the wearer to an awkward fall in
descending from a carriage, or when
they are widened to a ludicrous width
to admit of unmanageable crinolines,
or burdened with useless trains, to be
draggled in the streets or trodden on
in the ball-room, who ever thinks of
refusing to obey the nonsensical
mandate? Even the most obdurate
end by giving in, believing that they
are more ridiculous to hold out than
to stand alone with common sense.
Nothing, for instance, could indicate
more plainly the folly of making long
trained dresses the fashion, than to
see a year or two ago how tho latter
was necessarily bunched up in the
most ungraceful manner, or the
wearer was compelled to have one
hand always engaged with holding
up the superfluous yard or two of
stuff, making her invariably wish
that artificial hands had come into
fashion with the trains, to allow of
her using her natural ones in some
more profitable way.

Malaria is found. Even where the disease is
not prevalent here tlie general condition
of tlie surrounding locality may dc favorable
to health, i-o!ated cases may eist. Bad
drainage, a damp cllar, the escape of sewer

One day last week we accompanied
a friend to supper at the Barnes
House, and, when about to enter the
dining-room, the old handle who pre
sides over that hostelry, objected to
our eating, and we forgot our religion
and smote him on the cheek, which
resulted in a case before justice Mc
Murry, entitled the State of Texas vs.
Deed H. Meyer. Jury trial, and fined

A Man of Titles.
I heard a funny story the other day
about a young nobleman, a member
of Diplomatic" Corps at Washington.
It seems that the young man had a
military title of considerable length,
beside " having another title, and
when he got all his titles engraved
on his visiting cards, the bits of paste
board were well covered and looked
most imposing. The cards greatly
impressed all the Washington girls,
and the young foreigner became a
great favorite. One of his friends,
however, in a joking mood one day,
told him that he must add the word
"bachelor" to his card, as that was
the custom here. So the poor fellow
had "bachelor" engraved with the
rest of his titles.
