JUDGED BY THE COLORS. HOW THE LADIES OF ST. PAUL SELECT THEIR FOOT-GEAR. What Classes Wear Striped and Solid* Colored Hosiery—Ited a Color That In dicates a Fiery Disposition—Black the Proper Thing—Pure White. “Stockings an indication of character?” repeated the clerk in charge of the hosiery department of a prominent dry-goods store, as he folded a beautiful pair of blue silk hose aud replaced them in a box. “Yes, I think that the color, the texture, and in fact the lady’s conduct while mak ing a selection of foot coveriug enable the observing olerk to judge a good deal of her character, and even if she is a per fect stranger and her name and residence are unknowu quantities. I have tried my hand at guessing In that way, and when ever the stranger has become a regular cus tomer, thus giving me a chance to discover the truth or falsity of my prediction, I have found that I have judged her correctly. I knew a clerk in au extensive New York establishment, which dealt largely in hos iery, who had an elaborated theory on the subject, and in a number of cases, which came under our knowledge in connection with the published testimony in subse quent divorce proceeding, he came mighty near reading their characters to a fine point. UGLY AND INAPPROPRIATE FOOT-OKAR. “For instance, he maintained that no re fined woman, no woman with perfect taste, would ever make a barber shop sign sign of herself bv wearing striped stock ings. He held that a female with striking costume, a display of cheap jewelry, and a living, walking illustration of inhar monious combinations of colors was the only respectable being who ever called for barber stockings. He excused her on the ground that she knew no better. Ignor ance, he said, was the only reason why young girls and country maidens called for such ugly and inappropriate foot-gear. I am thoroughly convinced that his theory was correct, as I have yet to receive a call for such striped stockings from a St Paul woman, old or young, whom I know to have a leading position in social circles. They are worn a great deal by little girls, but with children the demand is for the smallest kind of a stripe. Blue and white or black and white are the reigning com binations of color, They want as near the neutral tint as ' possi- ble, for the less conspicuous an article is as to color the more desirable. The striped stockings are In great favor with the few Indian girls who chance to visit the store. They want the red and white or some other flaring colors, and the stripes are never too broad to suit them. Next to the Indians come the darkies. The colored womeu like showy stockings. The toreiguei» ore So that we get rid of all such stuff between the Indians, negroes, and the domestics of foreign birth or extraction. “This experienced friend of mine had a theory that a woman who would wear red stockings from choice was a person blessed with more than her share of temper. Bru nettes are more likely to prefer that color than blondes, and brunettes as a rule are higher-tempered than their paler sisters. But when a blonde call» for that she is hot- tempered. We had this proved to our en tire satisfaction. A blonde customer in New York Invariably called for red. In a subsequent divorce trial her husband tes tified that she was a perfect demon when she got mad, and trifles w ere enough to get her mad. She chased him out cf the house with a butcher knife and made mar ried life unbearable. A SAVAGE TASTE AND DISPOSITION. “I will never risk my life with a woman who has a partiality for red—it shows a savage taste and is generally coupled with a savage disposition. Now blue and gray are great improvements on red. They are more subdued. They show that their owner is of a refined character and likes not a display. But far above them, ae they are elevated above the barber-pole stockings, are the solid black hose. They are always elegant and appropriate. As a rule the prettiest girls with the prettiest figures take black. This is the latest craze. A short time ago the solid colors were all popular, but now black Is the leading fa vorite. It’s all nonsense to talk about in tellectual girlB preferring blue stockings. “When a female calls for white stock ings it is safe to say that she is either an old widow or an old maid, who don’t ex- pect to get married. They are per fectly reckless, and don’t care. I woman always feel sorry for a who wants that kind of hosiery. Of course it la only a matter of a few years since white was the prevailing color. It changed, and now no one thinks of getting pure white except those who are looking for a bargain or women who don't care for fashion. Flven a bride don't get pure white hose. She wants a tint of some kind and she gets it, if we have to send to New York for it. Future brides are the most particular customers who visit a dry gocxls store. Nothing Is ever good enoug.-i for them. They get over that feeling after they have been married a few years, and are less particular. I don’t blame ’em a bit, for everylxxly hel|M to make ’em fool ish. They don't have a female acquaint ance who wouldn't leave anything to go down town and buy or match eomething for a bride elect. After the ceremony these brides have to do their own »hop- ping."—St. Paul Pioneer Press. A Peculiarity of I.lgltl and Heat.
