The material of tho suit should Im of fancy worsted, mainly in light colors, gray or cream tieing preferable.

The edges are clitchwl, and the sleeves have imitation cuffs, closed with two buttons. The Is|h*1 s have a soft finish. so as to roll free when the coat is open. Commonly, however, it is kept buttoned. I lie t musers are of medium w idth, and have the faintest suspicion of spring at tin* iiottom.

For the most part the fabric is of diagonal cheviot, but plaids and soft chack patterns are equally appropriate. Ifs fancy vest is worn. the one most lifting is of Marseilles linen, although materials, such as silk mohair, and so on. pi pie, linen. Plucking and Shearing (reeve. A curious case came lrefore an English court for adjudication recently. A poulterer wa* , harped with crneltv to forty eight live geese by plucking them of their feathers, and tho owner was charged with procuring the com mission of the offense. The proc, (slings were taken by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. A witness swore that “after the geese were plucked their skins turned a purple Volor, and they seemed to be in pain I hey walked almut with their ba< k* up. and shrank when touched." The practice waa shown by defendants to lie very prevalent, and the society asked for a nominal fine to put a slop to it. The defendants -aid it was the custom of the district to iduek the feathers every six weeks, ami if they w ere stop]md from doing so many pen pie would discontinue keeping geese, as much more money was realized by the sal,, of feathers titan bv the geese I he court imposed a Hue of eighteen shillings upon the defendants, and express, n1 the hone that it would In* a warning to other people.

ADD, IOWA, matter of detail the uew fash,ions are wholly unlike those of i* lear ago. lindies! changes are not made sudden* Iv. < liaracter is even thing in clothes. The lengths for this spring are different from those of last year. and there i* a divergence also in the lilies of cutting. One of the most pronounced effects is the straight, double-breasted *ack coat w hich promises to l*e a fa-I von to with swell dressers. The materia! fur the coat is. as a rule, cheviot, in plum color, such as black, blue, electric gray, aud other quir t ahadea. The U|>els are wide and roll low, and may Ire facer! with silk or not, as the wearer elects. The coat is worn closed ; by three buttons. A double-breasted veal of the same material as the coat may be selected, I or*a single-breasted vest, or one of fancy material, single or double breasted, ac* cording to taste. The trousers are of medium width, and may have a military stripe of niik down th* seam if desired. There is w irle play for the ex-j ercise of individual taste in that regard. Another elegant design is the i straight-fmnt sack suit in striped i cheviot. There is no rule as to the exact pattern or color of the fabric, blue, , however, lieing in the lead. The fronts I of the coat are slightly rounded at the Iiottom. mid the la|>els are of medium fullness. A double row of stitching runs along the edges of the coat, aud the I Hit to ms of the sleeves are stitched to match. The i>ockct* are all of the patch order Tub trousers, owing to tin* lightness of the material, an* full. Next iii order as a fashionable fad, especially for young men, is the oue but ton cutaway sack suit.

I lie length of this c-oat is a trifle longer than obtain* generally in the sack design. The nill of the collar should not In* less than bv e inches,with full la|N*l* and a general appearance of freedom and ease. As to the bottom i-orners of the coat, or what would Ive the corners if not eat away, they should recede from an inch fmlow the lower button. All the pockets should have Haps, with the discretion of having the upper pocket made with a welt. Ivory buttons are considered the very projier form, and the edges should In* double-stitched, narrow. The vest is supposed to be notched and to close w itll five buttons. What manner of overcoat should „ man wear this season ? The creators of fashion haven t l>een ho fastidious in thin respect aa in others, and, in a gen erat way, it mav In* said that the spring overcoat of last year is appropriate now. The fly-front oversock or Chesterfield is the common favorite. Soft worsteds are the correct material, and the length for the average man is from thirty-six to thirty-seven inches. There is one im|K>rtant change, however. As a matter of course the three-button cutaway will still be the popular garment, aud will lead all others this season, as for several in the past. For half dress and for general style, well-made appearance, they eau not Im* surpassed The favorite shade w ill In* blue gray, with either flat braided edge or uarrowr stitching. The coat mav In* worn with a vest of the same ma tm ial,or as fancy as the wearer de sires, and the trousers slum lo be inst a trifle narrower than last year. with (lie suspicion of u spring at the bottom.
