It is Only Twenty five years since Commodore Perry went to Japan and Laid the foundation of that familiar Intercourse which has since existed Between that country and the United states. What the japanese can do is shown in their department and it gives Rise to a great Many exclamations of astonishment. A i never thought these people could do anything like this a said a lady yesterday As she examined some delicate embroidery on a fire screen. A a there Isnit a woman in America who could imitate it with any show of Success a she continued and All the members of her party echoed her opinion. The japanese embroidery is something wonderful and one does not easily weary of studying it the japanese touch must be very delicate and the Eye very accurate they embroider Birds so that every Feather is visible and they depict fish so that you see every scale. Their colors Are Bright and warm and they know How to put Birds and fish animals and men into Graceful and artistic positions.

You will find her therefore i Well informed Aalo cube Root and upon the provocation of an entertaining extract made by the world from a Paris newspaper the Sun desires and entreats us to give it our own opinion As to whether a truly Good and refined Man ought or not to leave his hat in the anteroom when he makes a visit. As the in correctly observes the traditions of euro e society require everyone to present of hat in hand before his Host when a he makes a visit while the habit has grown strongly of late years upon americans of leaving their hats in the Hall run Niue their fingers in a sudden frenzy of cosmetic preparation through their ambrosial locks and entering a drawing room As if they had come Down stairs from their own apartments and not upstairs from the Street. The doffing of the hat As the fable of Gesler should live taught us All was Long ago adopted As an outward sign and Symbol of deference and so Long As the pleasing pretence is kept up in All civilized countries that every stranger who writes you is and ought to by your a a very obedient servant a the doffing of the hat May serve As Well As any other sign or Symbol to express fee same idea when two people meet each other. To hold your hat in your hand is to imply that you have taken it off out of respect to your boat to leave it outside in the Ball implies that you took it off for your own convenience. It or parisian authority gave As a reason few carrying the hat into a drawing room that men very Seldom know what to do with their hands and a hat is a Handy thing to ones awkwardness with. There is some truth in this now but there was More in the last Century when men wore More or less flexible three cornered hats Arf their name of chapeaux Bra signifies to be tucked under the Arm. And adorned wife Gold lace. These decorative and manageable hats were real adjuncts to the Grace and ease of a Well bred Man of the world who could use them As ladies use a fan to be stimulate withal on occasion add they enabled him to distinguish himself As neatly As by a a the Nice eco act of a clouded Case. Or the Dainty handling of a glittering enamelled snuff Box. The Sun will certainly agree with us that the fashionable a stove pipe of the nineteenth cent air cannot be very successfully used in this Way. To carry such an ungainly object in ones hand however is i mainly a most humiliating and impressive Way of signifying our respect for those upon whom we Call and if we Are to keep up the old deferential mood in our minor morals this consideration ought to decide the question. There is another thing too in favor of the hat in hard practice which is that the Man who keeps his hat in his hand is sure of Bis hat while the recent dreadful Fate of the Hundred castors wide awake and other Lead pieces which were dance into a pulp for ppm of by the wild poet Swinburne in the Hall or the London arts club Moar solemnly Warrus us of the exasperating uncertainties which attend the custom of parting wife ones .
