For the latter has always shown herself a rebel to the duly constituted authority, no matter whether monarch-  ial or republican. History teaches us  'that there are no decrees that excite  a greater amount of popular insistence  than those of a sumptuary character.  Under the circumstances it remains  to be seen whether or not she will  prove more successful in her determination to dominate La Mode than  all those other royal and imperial ladies who have attempted the task, and  who' have all been compelled to ac-  'knowledge'-defeat, with the exception  of Empress Josephine and of Empress  Eugenie, neither'of them of royal birth.

Queen Alexandra, so immeasurably  popular iu every respect, could never  succeed,   no   matter   how   much   she  tried, in putting a stop to the wearing of the plumage of wild birds, and  especially of aigrettes.    She frequently expressed her views about the matter, but never ventured  to go to the  length t of   prohibiting   this   form   of  adornment in her .presence as Queen  Mary has done in the case of the hobble skirt.

It is understood that in giving expression to her ideas to the Lord  Chamberlain about the matter, she was  influenced in the first place by her  sense of propriety, which was offended by the fact that the fashionable  skirt of today is so excessively scanty  as to accentuate the lines and the  curves  of  the  wearer  to  almost  the  she still wears today her hair crimped  and dressed in the same way as a  quarter of a century ago, while the  so-called "Princess gowns," which  were named after her some three decades back, still constitute her favor-  it garb. Moreover, she has for the  past 25 years or so invariably affected  small hats or toques and no one can  ever recall having seen her in a picture hat, or in any other of the passing extravagances of fashion.  Queen Victoria at one moment oilier reign made an unsuccessful attempt to render Irish poplin fashionable by decreeing it for court wear, her  idea being to foster this branch of  Irish  industry.

It ��������� must be borne in  mind that the Englishwoman, in the  matter of dress, is usually disposed  to exaggerate the Parisian modes,  thereby impairing their elegance. And  so it has been with the jupe collante,  which is far more collante when worn  by an Englishwoman than any Paris-  ienne would venture to affect.  Then, too, the tight skirt is absolutely fatal to any graceful courtesy. Formerly very deep and sweeping in its  movements, this form of homage to  the reigning house degenerated during  the closing years of the reign of Queen  Victoria into a mere dip, sometimes  known as the "Charity bob," which betokened indifference, carelessness and  undue familiarity.  The progress of the war in which  Queen Mary now finds herself engaged against Dame Fashion will te  watched with interest, not alone by  women, but even by men, who are  wholly indifferent, as a rule, to chiffons.
