IIE dramatic art is the poorest of all arts. It paxes through too
many hands to lie able to retain its real value. It rearin'.- the
jnihlie, after it has l>een trampled upon and eut to picve>, in a
faded condition and stripjied of its beauty.
The author who has pored over his own sheets of paper
knows his play in his own partieular way; the manager who
receives it looks at it with a different eve, the stage manager
gives his opinior, and the actor consider- it according to Ins
own temperament and means, while the public who well nne it
stare at it w ith a liftlieye! Tc) this mimUr add another dozen
or more of accessory actor . Poor author! How could lie expect to re-
main master, of such an elfort when so many collaborators are bound to
upset the harmony r
The best interpreted author is the one who abandons himself to the
hands of his interpreters—of course, if they are talented. If they are
artists they will employ the best means of utilizing his canvas. They will,
perhaps, find out certain effects which the author sought to convey, but if
left to themselves will discover or create other impressions, which w ill con-
tain more brilliancy and taste, because they spring from a fount which
The comedian’s role in the drama is far superior to that of the dra-
matist. The comedian relies upon himself for success; lie can do without
the dramatist ; lie utilizes with ease his own forces for tragedy or comedy;
if he has any talent he will use it wherever he thinks tit, and vary it when-
ever necessary. As Scarainouche before Motion1, he will, without the help
of others, reveal his true power, whether comical or tragic. There always
have been from time immemorial certain “grimaciers” of genius who could
net without the text of others! The day the comedian refuses to interpret
his work the dramatist simply w ill starve, lie will find himself faced with
the alternative of interpreting his own plays, like Shakespeare or Moliere.
The day perhaps will come when “improvisation,” spontaneous and ,
immediate, will replace modern drama, which is studied and repeated,
which makes us weep automatically and laugh a hundred times over, every i
night at the same hour! Ifontine! Ifoutiue!
Why not create a new art, where the actors will enter the arena and .
the public suggest to them certain actions to simulate, certain characters to
create, ask them to give a dozen different impersonations? This will be
the only means of revealing true, sincere, and manifoh} talents, whose des- |
tinies no longer will he guided by ihe author, the stage manager, the direc-
tor, but who will be emancipated and freed of all restrained emotions.
Jlowlong will it he before we have a theater of improvisers? How
long before the abolition of theatrical slavery? How long before the possi-
bility of showing in 20 minutes the artistic nobility of Sarah Bernhardt,
the humanity of La Duse, the wit of lfejane, the farce of (ialipaux—dis-
tinction, beauty, ugliness, laughter, tears, love, liie and death? \\ hen will

been for ages one of the
favorite sports of worn-
en. The bachelor lias al- j
ways been regarded as
fair game for the slings
and arrow s of the Dianas i
of the period, lie is one j
of those who apparently
refuse to bend the knee '
to beauty, or to acknow ledge the sovereignty of woman, lie is a perpetual
challenge to the powers of fascination exercised by the fair sex. His
defiant attitude courts attack, and puts every girl of spirit on her mettle, j
Every bachelor that escapes the wiles of the hunter, means one bride the !
less and one aching heart the more. No bachelor retains bis state ol in-
sularity without a struggle. II faut souffrir pour etre baehclior.
And no professed bachelor can be quite certain that be may not of a j
sudden become a benedict. lie lias no fixity ol tenure, but tiemblcs in the
balance from day to day. He knows that life is full of surprises, and sweet j
and twenties. Also that it is always the unexpected girl that happens. IBs !
bachelor life is simply lived from hand to mouth. To-morrow some other
band and mouth may claim his undivided attention, lie never knows
when lie is safe. Even into the seclusion of bis club the airs and graces
of gentle womanhood find their way through the medium of the illustrated
papers. Can lie resist the appeal of beauty that pleads to him in half-
tones? Can he continue to frown on a sex that smiles on him to assidu-
ously every week for sixpence? Perish the photographers!
The bachelor who, “in spite of all temptations’’ to multiply relations,
remains single to the end of the chapter deserves a better fate. lie is such
stuff as heroes are made of. lie is a brave man. Obviously he would have
made an excellent husband; possibly, an exemplary father. As it is he has
shirked his plain duty of transmitting his misogynist qualities to posterity.
Imagine how he would have strengthened his cause and helped the glorious
propaganda in future ages, had he left half a dozen sons to preach the
tenets of bachelorhood when he had been gathered to his golden opportuni-
ties. Ilis attitude of master clivity though perhaps, dignified, is cer-
tainly dangerous. No man can shirk allegiance to the >e\ or his duty to
the state with impunity. Charmers and tax collectors alike will see to it
that he contributes his fair share towards the prosperity of his country,
lie must he made to contribute in money what he refuses in men.
But, after all, the modern bachelor is by no means so black as he is
painted, lie is simply one of those exceptional men who have been horn
without the genius for matrimony. To marry at all, a nmn requires inspira-
tion : to marry well, aspiration; and to marrv foolishly, desperation. None
of these qualities has been vouchsafed to the singular being who delib-
erately and of maljee prepense leads the single life. As
the result of his unnatural mode of life he becomes
self-centered, warped, selfish, irritable, and difficult
to please, lie has no home, as the word is generally
understood. He may have a house and a retinue of
servants, hut as “stone walls do not a prison make, nor
iron bars a cage,” rooms and a retinue do not make
a home. From the point of view of scientific evolution
he is an outcast, a mere wanderer in clubland. He has
no fixed place in the general scheme of nature. What,
then, is he here for? “’To be taxed,” say the ladies
unanimously. Well, perhaps they arc right.

The first frock displayed is suited to expression either in linen, pique
or alpaca, while the bands could be appropriately chosen of cotton braid,
fanciful galon, or glace silk, and the vest should be of one of those cre-
tonnes with blurred blossoms upon their surface, which fashion favors con
spicuously lately. The mushroom hat is of violet straw with a violet silk
bow at the left side and a bunch of violet pansies at the right. The other
sketch shows a frock of striped pique with trimmings of cotton cords and
a vest and under sleeves of embroidered lawn.
AN more distinct-
ive possibilities of
the coat and skirt
as adapted to the
ments of the
teen" ingenue be
that which is
for you? The cos-
tume is of biscuit
near the hem of
ing walking skirt
a band of pale
blue cloth, head
cd with deeply
scalloped silken braid matching the
tweed in tone. On the charming
coatee the blue cloth and the braid
also figure effectively, and there is,
too, a waistcoat of the soft blue, fas-
tening in a series of scallops, and all
edged with narrow black and white
braid, and a tiny ruffling of lace, the
buttons, too. being in blue and black
and white rimmed round with gold. |
Every detail is. indeed, worth study-
ing, and then the hat, too, is charm-
ing, simply and smartly trimmed as it
is with groups of white wings.
The cotton voiles have come to rival
printed chiffons in the delicacy of
their colorings and beauty of pattern
and are essentially a fabric for festive
attire, and their cost being so little
they appeal to the home dressmaker
as particularly suited to the creation
of an economical yet apparently cost-
ly costume. Our Illustration demon-
strates the possibilities of this cloth. It
will be noted that the trimmings are
arranged in the simplest manner, and
the method of putting them on will he
here explained in due course.
XVo will proceed now with the cut-
ting out: The skirt pattern consists
of one-half of the top of the under-
skirt, one-half of the flounce, and half
of the overskirt.
This last-named is cut practically on
the same principle as the underskirt,
only with the front edge to the sol
vedge and the bias seam at the back,
whereas the underskirt has the fiont
and back seams both slightly on the
bias, the latter more so than the for-
mer, but neither so much so as is the
central back seam of the overskirt.
The full flounce in its turn demands
that the overskirt shall be heavily
gored so as to get plenty of width at
the hem and thus fall easily in with
the folds of the bounce.
For the back seam of skirt place a
length of Prussian binding along the
seam when tacking the two parts to-
gether; machine one edge of this in,
ering thread run along it, and for
neatness’ sake the top is turned down
half an inch on to the right side, the
first gathering going through the
To join flounce on to upper, divide
it first Into halves, then quarters; do
the same with the skirt, and then pin
quarter to quarter, drawing the gath-
ering threads up and twisting them
round the pins when the material is
drawn the requisite length between
each, thus regulating the fullness
evenly. Tack on carefully, and then
machine on to wrong side of skirt,
after which press. Finish off the ends
of the V trimming of lace neatly, so
