MASCtrLINE 'DRESS REFOltro,
We need no t be surpriied that With the re
turn of liot, Weather the ' Movement in behalf
01 dress reform among , men has received a new
impulse, and Ole hope of emancipation from
trouses has grown suddenly brighter.
That the masculinkfiress is vastly inferior to
the ',feminine :dress as a means of protection,
against. heat. Will 'be readily conceded. The
coat, the waistcoat, the collar , and the necktie
tam ii series of folds of cloth abbot the back o
the neck which_ cause . that delicate part =to be
irritated; and thus directly tend to develope
tirebro spinal 'meningitis, and other diseases
little less formidable in point.of syllables. Wb
men, on the other hand, either entirely bares ,
her'neck, or atitbe uor6i covers it.) with light
material which in no way interferes with the
circulitiion of air. Men, again, are compelled
to wear that mot exaspirating of all-garments,
the short sock. `) The sock is—merely 'Mockery
of. the: stocking';;`. It ...-has not strength enough
to keep - its positioni unaided, and as it is too
short to admit of the aid of gariers, it is con
'stantly drooping about the ankle, and thus ir
ritating the mind of the wearer at the very
time when he needs takeep cool mentally as
well as physically. , This source of suffering
and:mental eiciteinent ie - unknown to
eged sex. Far be= it from us to pry into the
mysteries of nature and rashly attempt, to de
scribe the origin, character, and .use of thejrue

There are at least six persons, possibly more,
in New York city entaged_in the pnrehase of
suiierfluous wedding presents, three of whpm
deal exclusiuely in a Certain., class of articles.
One of these dealers, interviewed by a reporter
carries on business ; in the - Bowery, where he
has a large store ostensibly 'kir' the sale of .uri
redeemed pledges, but his - most lucrative busl
ness isthe purchase and sale of wedding
presents that are only So much old lumber to,
the'owners. When asked - how he conducted
the business,' be replied: "You see- when a
young couple belonging to good families get
married, their friends all Make -them presents,
and in, nine cases out of ten the young folks
find themselves in possession of certain kinds
of household stuff enough to last several genera
.tion. The young wife often discovers that she
ha : set, ofjewelrY for almost every day in the
m•.l Why, tiome tine' ago ::I di business
with • esirly-married; couple now/riving on
Lexington avenue, Where the young bride
and a beautiful girl sliewas—had eight Opera
glasses. Of course she didn't wan't ail; so I
bought five 'of them. Here's one of Otem left
[showing a small but handsoine' pearl-mounted'
opera glass.] Silverware and china are other
things that newly married people generally find
they have too much \of, but I don't do anything
in that way. There are other men in business
who deal in that and . nothing else. - I confine
myself to jewelry hnd trinkets."
"But how do you know on whom . to call and
when ?" . '
"That's simple enough. You see, the mark
riages are all published in the papers,and where
it is .a wedding bet Ween two rich folks, a report
is made, of it and a list of the presents given.
you se4when I have got the name's and resi
dencesf am right. 0, no ; I don't go to them
as Emu as they are married ; that wouldn't do.
They'd kick you out of the house if you went
on such business for . the first few weeks. You
have to let them settle doWn to housekeeping
and find out how much useless stuff they have
got, and even then it you call they May not be
willing to sell. The husband' generally
the wife is sure to object at first 'O. no, dear,
she'll' l say; `lean% sell' that. 'You know Aunt
Martha gave, it to me and it wou)dn't be right
to sell it,' and so on with everything . elSe ; but,
after seeing them two or three'thnes, they fall
in with the idea and, are•willina• (3'sell anything
they don't wa.n't." •
"I suppose you. purchase
. such articles very
"VVell [laughing] you may be sure I don't
give more than they are worthL You see, I
often have those things in my sore for a year
before I sell them, and on somethings, such as
fans, I often lose money. Sometimes 1 sell
things in that way to gentle Men wanting to
make wedding presents ; for yon see I buy from
the rieh people, and; ` they arest-class goods .
When I get them they are as good Is new, but
can sellthem lOr thud?. less tban they cbst at
first, and people who can't &flora to pay high
prices come tome for their wtdding presents?!
The long evenings ; which Mow the short

of all happy times. _The cares of the day are
