Fort Wayne Gazette, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1884, Fort Wayne, IndianaIn the sunday the fashions. Styles in shoes said to class Ify woman s social status. Large figures for wraps Small for dress bound Waist still worn. Woman not a slave to fashion for Man s Sake Garn iture for cloth skirts. Although it is said that woman is a devotee of fashion because of her de Bireto attract the admiration of the other sex. We Are inclined to think it is a grave error. Woman As woman May adore the other sex As vice versa and stoop to Many a trick in Trade to attract its admiration we Grant but that she follows a fashion for that Pur Pote is not so. She follows fashion Loris own Sweet Sake. There is a mystery Abonit it. Why she does she herself can hardly say. But that she was adopts Many a one that does anything but enhance her Beauty is proof Posi Tive that it is not done for the direct purpose of attracting admiration. However we do not aspire to divest Mankind of this error into which they have fallen. In this reign of Louis of France it is said that an edict solemnly passed and duly to the effect that Whoso Ever by Means of red or White paint perfumes essences artificial Teeth. False hair Cotton Wool Iron cob8bts, hoops shoes with High heels or false hips shall seek to entice into the Bonds of marriage any male subject of his majesty shall be prosecuted for witchcraft and declared incapable of when Wise men go to the verge of an insanity that induces them to pass such a Law they show their weakness lather than their Wisdom. It is not True that desire to attract men into marriage is at the Bottom of Holly in adopting certain fashions. Do not aim to make converts of Law makers but we assert what we do know that women possess other motives for their love of fashionable arts and actions than this. Think of the Many matters in which women married women Are salves to fashion s freaks outside of those which pertain to dress and per Sonal appearance. London new York and Many other prominent cities have a class of women leaders of society who would no More go through an attack of hysteria or even influenza without the attendance of a certain fashionable physician than Are wedged in Between the sole proper and the shoe. This style of Boot has the effect of making the foot look broader flatter and much longer than any other. We were surprised to learn the shoe of 3 j size looked As Long As a number 5 with usual sole and Heel. Yet it is positively asserted the exclusively fashionable women of the East Ern states will Wear no other. A laughable anecdote was related show ing the great desire of others to arrive at this fashionable Standard. A Young school girl of fifteen desired to Pur Chase Spring Heel shoes contrary to her Mother s wish and the merchant s opinion As her foot was too arched at instep and too hollow underneath for that style to fit her without pain in walking. A Lively contest ensued be tween Mother and daughter which resulted in a Shower of tears of disappointment from the Voung girl and physical chastisement from the Parent. A Compromise was at length effected by the merchant promising to have the Heel of an Ordinary shoe lowered lengthened out behind and thus made to resemble the Spring Heel. No fancy stitching Scoll Oping or linked out edges Are seen on the latest shoes. Every Edge is finished plainly with a Fine neat Welt. The guard that passes up the Back seam should be let in and sewed in an inside seam with a Small Welt thus leaving no stitching to Wear by Fric Tion of clothes against the Heel. This is a great improvement in ladies shoes As it leaves no vulnerable Point for constant mending. As the time approaches for the More constant Wear of Wool material some change is observable in the round skirt dress models. Waists round in Manv costumes will remain but will not we such they would Wear a Bustle or trained when Flat drapery and Short Petti Coats were in Vogue. This simply be cause the eminent medical Man is the fashion. In the Middle of the seventeenth Century so history tells us a certain confessor of the Komish Church was the fashion in France. So persistently did men As Well As women desire to receive the last rites of their Church from his hands that their death Beds were not easy till they knew that this fashionable priest could at tend them. All this is a master of historical record. In such Obser Vience to fashion there is no element of that motive which car per and satirist attribute to women As the sole cause of their Folly. Indeed some fashions come into Vogue that in no Way heighten woman s Beauty Many of them Are such that men wisely deride and scoff at them and in a manner woman becomes belittled in Man s sight by them yet she persistently adhere to them in spite of this fact. It will perhaps forever remain a mystery just Why fashion does hold the Sway she has Over the mind and will of sensible As Well As foolish a sparkling Eye and a laughing lip a fair form and a Graceful step have greater Sway Over Man when woman wills to woo for marriage than whether she Chance to Wear Marine crepe or High heels or Low. Just now at the last words bring it to mind she has turned her attention to her heels. Singularly enough the shoe that makes the foot look larger the instep lower and the walk of the wearer less Clastic is the Boot of the period. Prominent Boot makers Tell us that class of girls and women by their own labor be shirred and belted so much As sum Mer materials have been. Some dresses will be made with Corsage Cut round in the Back at Waist with or without pleadings attached and the fronts Cut pointed Basque or polonaise both single and double breasted effects will be Given to vests and Cor Sage fronts. Flat vests will be preferred to shirred effects in Wool cos Tumes. Velvet will trim and be combined with Wool fabrics As Well As silk there is an is curiae velvet imported for trimming and Combina Tion with cloth for mantles. It has velvet figures outlined with Gold or Silken Cord. Frise effects Are Given in Many of the materials brought out for wraps. Plush will be seen to some extent but it also is Woven in the Frise or raised curly figures and in Many cases these figures Are outlined. Large figures plaids and stripes will still prevail for wraps but there seems to be a tendency to smaller figures in dress goods. For the trimming of cloth dresses Randof velvet braid and Astrakhan escorial Borders and Many new designs in fancy Cable cords will be employed. Some of the cloths come provided in the piece Garn iture. Or other Frise or velvet effects Are placed on the Bottom of skirts they vary from eight to ten inches in Width. The Basque or jacket is also bordered but the drapery should be left untrimmed. Velvet escorial trimming. Comes in single ornaments As Well As in bands. The designs Are either in Frise curled or in uncut loops that Are frequently twisted and the pattern with stripes of suitable where bands of Astrakhan a certain those who live mostly still buy the usual shoe one More or less pointed at the toe and it must have a High Heel. But the higher social class of women Call for a shoe Urith Low Flat Heel and disfiguring by Broad Square toe. Still another class which the dealer Call the exclusive will Wear nothing but the wide Soled shoe with is King Heki. This Heel is exactly the same As that men on first shoes for walk ing. It is formed by the sole extend ing the full length of the shoe from toe to Heel and passing out a Short distance beyond the Heel of the foot. The Heel part is then sprung from the and two layers sole leather worn in the six the High Medici is outlined with self coloured or Gilt Cord As in the bands. A peculiarity in the decoration of dresses will consist in placing Odd not matched figures on corresponding parts of a garment. It seems a Little singular that so Many fashions of the Day Are borrowed from the costumes Teeth Century Collar with rolling Back and Over fronts so wide As to require a wire to support it in its place belonged to that period. The High shouldered sleeve effect bouffant drapery the straight standing Collar the tunic opening in front sleeves with banded puffs Dow n the length of the Arm All there Are copied or modifications of of that period and have hold their own favourites for months some for three years. None of them seem in any danger of being ousted from favouritism even now unless it be the parted tunic drapery which some Modisto Are desirous to discontinue. Still another style has its origin at least also in the same year pleating. Or perhaps we should say that the Many varieties of modern pleating had their origin then in the slashed skirts that were worn filled in with Ali secs or narrow folds very similar to what is now called fan pleating. This is perhaps a fashion that will not soon pass away it is so much liked. To Day the newest style of pleating is that called it is by raised machine pressing and looks similar to the Bellows pleating of the musical instrument of that name. As far As to have been Able to discover our City has not an accordion pleating depot and ladies Are now sending skirts to new York City to be pleated. Tough. Here yelled Fitz Goott. Yes Sah i can t eat this Why not because it is so Tough dog could t put his Teeth through ill Tek hit Back Den Sah an Fotch a piece what can fling to Teeth replied the courteous attend it Faur before Fitz could . I saw the Gardener bring and strew Gray ashes where Blush roses grew the fair still roses Bent them Low. The Pink Cheeks dimpled All with Lew.

Susan Cotlidge. Armyrecollection8. In october 1861, the army of the Potomac under the immediate com Mand of general Mcclellan had reached a strength of nearly one Hun Derd and Twenty thousand men. The understanding was then current throughout the army that we would Advance upon Manassa not later than november 25th. That being consid ered the stronghold of the enemy under the command of general Joseph e. Johnson. On the 31st of october general Mcclellan was made commander in chief on the resignation of general Scott. With a change in position came also a change in his views As regards the propriety of an Onward movement. The month of november rolled past the weather hav ing been Fine and the roads in excellent condition for military movements and to the impatient millions scattered Over the Loyal states who hourly expect to hear of a dashing movement and a Brilliant Victory no other Mes Sage came but the wearisome iteration. All quiet on the in the Early part of january 1862, an important change was made in the War department. The Hon. Simon Cameron resigned the office of Secre tary of War and was succeeded by Edwin m. Stanton. The patience of Stanton was soon completely exhausted by the inactivity of general me Cleylan. By the first of february the aggregate strength of the army Potomac was in round numbers two Hundred and Twenty thousand men. In regard to Drill and equipment no finer army was Ever held in Readi Ness for Battle. For reasons Best known himself general Mcclellan manifested no desire to put this grand army in motion. There was no end to parades grand reviews and a neutering which for a time delighted and astonished the people of washing ton. At last the daily exhibition of the army of the Potomac no longer disgusted the people of the Northern states. On to Rich became the popular and imperious cry through the press from the platform and from the pulpit these words rang out Over the breadth and length of the North finding a response in every Loyal heart. The gov ment caught the contagion and in these circumstances or. Lincoln summoned generals Mcdowell and Frank Lin to a conference with himself and Cabinet. To them the president frankly revealed his desire for an Onward movement. If something is not soon he said the Bottom will be out of the whole affair and if general Mcclellan does not want to use the army i would like to borrow it provided i could Sec How it could be made to do he saw that the heart of the nation was sinking. Expenses had been frightful and there had been no result. There was serious signs of disaffection in the ranks. Or. Lincoln was not More anxious for immediate action than were the officers in the Field and the rank and file under them. The president now resolved that the War in what might the called systematic form should now begin. Determined to be done with this do nothing policy of Mcclellen the presi Dent issued his famous War order no. 1, which directed the 22d Day of february to be the Day for a general Forward movement of the land and naval forces of the United states against the insurgent forces. Four Days afterwards a special order was issued to general Mcclellan for a move on Manassa. This order has generally been attributed to the Energy and firmness of Stanton. On the morning of March 9th, we broke Camp at fort Ellsworth where we had spent the Winter in Comfort Able quarters. This was known As Camp Pierrepont in Honor of the Loyal governor of West Virginia and was situated about two mires South of the Chain Bridge with its right resting on the Potomac which Stream we forded a Many times to see vow at Tennal Latown. On div Misiou marched out the Leeson Rpike As far As Goose Creek and there the column was turned to the left for the purpose of at tacking and turning the left of the position at Centreville. After March ing some two Miles front the main Pike the division went into bivouac for the night in the Woods. We started Back for the purpose of getting supper at a Mill we passed just before leaving the Pike known As Republican Mills. The Mill was situated at the head of a Meadow which was surrounded on three sides by Woods on the West Side of which was the Pike. When quite near the Mill we saw some half dozen soldiers scattered Over the Meadow All Bent for the Mill. At the same time we heard the Clatter of horses hoofs on the Pike and looking towards the brow of the Hill we saw five rebel cavalry men Distant about five Hundred Yards. We were about one Hundred Yards from the Woods. They evidently saw us about the same time we saw them and putting the spurs to their horses and Yelling halt at the top of their voices they divided each singling out Bis Man. We stood not on the order of our going but started at once at the top of our Speed for the Woods encouraged by our Success As a runner at the first Battle of Bull Bun. At every jump the rebel kept shoot ing at us from a breach loading car Bine but As he had to Cross the Mill race with his horse we believed we could distance him for the Woods. Our coat Tail stuck straight out behind but we crossed the Fence and into the Woods All of fifty Yards in Advance of our pursuer. The being thick and full of undergrowth we had no fear of cavalry there. We hastened to general Ord s Headquarters and in formed him of our exciting Chase by the rebel cavalrymen. Colonel Bay Ards first regiment of Pennsyl Vania cavalry was close at hand and a detail from it was immediately sent in Pursuit. In less than an hour we had the pleasure of seeing the dashing rebel cavalry brought into Camp As prisoners accompanied by several of Mong Ems elves men lore and poet raise to m. But i grow alone amid hese than the skirts of night As she through the Forest he upon my som. I amid All things that grow and Are am without meaning an Signi Oance to then came an answer behold an ther Day and thy significance shall e unfolded. Forever hereafter thou halt remind men of that divine Assion which heretofore the mystery f thy Beauty has unconsciously pre figured and which they have failed to understand.1 and to Early in the morning some soldiers plucked the thorns and with hem unwittingly the Flower and wove them together into a Crown Ana placed it upon the head of our Meek Ord and the Flower was bathed in purple blood which Lowed from the wounds. Suddenly in sympathy the Flower sent Forth a wonderful fragrance which filled All the place so that the sufferer fainted not. And so this fragrant Flower a sym a t of the ruined creation bloomed through jul to All the darkness and terror of that Day n the bloody Garland which bound he dear head lifted on the Cross. And thus it was that the passion Flower was blessed among All earthly Flowers thus do men see in it the sym Bol of the bloody Reed and thorny Crown and thus do Many love it for our Savior s Sake. Our men they had captured in the Meadow. In conversation with the trooper who gave us Chase he re marked he never saw a Man of our four foot Streamer in it makes the inhabitants tremble with exd tement. Then to orphans department and London Headquarters and a mate division and a burlesque Wing and a Haven for those who were with its Egisti and other strangers going across that Square would not discover these places but they Are where is one of them for in actors in summer. Some of the manners and customs that pre Vail Atoot Union Square. New York times by the Way Josephus do All actors stand around Union Square in the no not All of them. Why my dear boy there Are about of them the United states. Those Fellows who stand around Union Square All Day Long Are the Riff Raff of size get Over the same space of ground in so Short not knowing of our Advance they had come out from Leeburg to our rear after our column had filed to the the left of the Pike. On the following morning we took up the line of Marck and on arriving a Centreville found it deserted were greatly mortified to find on miserable Earth works and quake of Wood shaped lib Cannon which had so Long kept us a Bay. It is not wonderful that or Lincoln should now relieve Genera Mcclellan of All the military depart ments except that of the Potomac an dividing the army into four corps t be commanded respectively by generals Sumner Mcdowell Heintzleman and Keyes with the fifth corp in the Shenandoah Valley commanded by general Nathaniel p. Banks. Our next move was to Alexandria by the of Fairfax court House and from to Yorktown. The writer went to fortress Monroe in company with Frank Brownell who shot Jackson the the murderer of colonel Ellsworth in the marshal House in Alexandria a. Brownell was promoted to first lieu tenant in the regular service and was then in command of and adjutant of the second battalion of the 14th United states infantry. He was subsequently dismissed the service for drunkenness and died a confirmed inebriated in new York City. Or. Lincoln had great Hopes for the future of Young Brownell but he was doomed to disappoint ment. Len Otoc. The passion Flower. Of the South Ameri can Centra advocate. The name of the passion Flower was Given it by the jesuits of South Ameri Ca who saw in it an Emblem of Christ s crucifixion the column representing the pillar to which he was bound the fringes of the Flower the Crown of thorns the tendrils the Cord with which he was bound the styles with their capital stigmas were the nails which held him to the Cross and the stamens were the hammers to drive them. At the expulsion from Eden the mourning Angels followed the exiles afar off and wherever they went the tears sprang up and blossomed into Flowers. This one fell in a desolate place among thorns and grew up in loved by Man with no companions of its kind and no confidante except a solitary night wind and this tried to Comfort the desolate Flower by saying a time should come when it should Bloom in Beauty beyond the Beauty of All other Flowers and be blessed above All that grow in earthly gardens. Growing in Solitude and thinking of this the Flower grew in form into a Strong and Mystic similitude a shaped typical of its prophetic destiny. One night when All the Flowers save this wore dreaming of their loves upon its solitary bosom the loneliness pressed like it pain. Bowed Down to the Earth it cried have i not waited years and still i am left alone. The pro a general thing. Not All of them can of classed under that Erm for Many a respectable actor oafs Well they travel All the season and Ince have no fixed place of abode. Most of them Are single men and when hey come into new York they take a room in a boarding House. They Don t Snow what to do with themselves so hey spend much of their time in hang ing around Union Square. They Call it the what do they do in this Rialto Well one thing they do is talk Over their triumphs of the past season. Jimmy Brown will spend hours in Tell ing Jolany Jones How he hogged pm in Kalamazoo. That was the most intelligent audience he Ever saw. They took every Point in his part and applauded nearly every speech. After the show he was introduced to several leading bar keepers and Pool players and they sat up All night trying to raise each other out of Jack pots. Jimmy won and lost it All the next Day betting on the skating match in Oshkosh. The interspersed with visits to be neighbouring saloons where drinks Are imbibed As any one can be found to set pm up.1 and Many Are the dodgers of Star Timander to which the cunning Fakir resorts in order to get his Little drink. Let a Man steal quietly into a place to take a solitary drink. In another minute an acquaintance walks in and appearing not to see the Drinker walks up to the bar and inquires of the bar keeper any letters for me not to Day or. Bilkins a " Well now my child but that i ant forbid to reveal the secrets of my prison House 1 could a tale unfold that would Harrow up thy Young blood Etc. I Tell Vou of one place and that is characteristic. On the Northeast Cor Ner of fourteenth Street and fourth Avenue there is a Beer Saloon above which rooms Are rented for lodgers. This place is the Headquarters of the Southern circuit. The Southern Cir Cuit consists As you May readily infer of towns in the Southern states. Companies Are organized every season for the purpose of devastating the reconstructed South. Most of these companies Are fearfully and wonderfully composed. At this place on the Cor Ner which i have mentioned the actors and managers meet. It is a Little Rialto of their own. Most of the Man agers of the Southern circuit have rooms in the House. The proprietor with an Eye to business has a Little it closure on the pavement decked out with plants and vines and inside of it Are tables. At these tables the actors and managers meet and discuss business for beakers of the beverage of the Rhine. Any Day you May see their men with Straw hats on the backs of their bad cigars in their Mouths glasses of Beer in front of them and Little memorandum books in their hands. In these they enter their with actors and with managers. You must understand that certain local Southern managers control the show houses in a number of towns on the circuit and the manager of a Combina Tion cannot get into one town without playing in the others. It s a great scheme and it works beautifully a hew Kip of graduate. Or. Selvedge that he Titan drawn some erroneous from the newspapers. And said or.

We had no Josephus when i want to learn now to live hereafter i will not go to the ant but to the quite right Star Timander. That Rialto is a great place in Many ways a wonderful amount of business is done there in the course of the sum Mer. Actors and managers who do not wish to transact their business through the agencies do so there. It used to be the Headquarters for Busi Ness before the agencies became so now it does not have so much business patronage As it did though i understand that some of the old Trade is Drifting Back. The Rialto is becoming divided into smaller portions each devoted to special line of work. They have what they Call an Uncle Tom s Cabin Corner for in what is that is the place where the ambitious players who Are accustomed to exhibit their abilities in the ancient dramatization1 of mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe s novel hold Forth. There you will find on pleasant worm mornings perhaps five George Shol Beys six Geerge harrises four Simon degrees ten Marks the lawyers eight Gump Tion cites a dozen greatest living Uncle tows and an assorted variety of Quimbo Sambos and russian blood hounds.
