The Outfitting of Boys, Girls, and Babies our specialty.
Considering the Assortment, Styles, and our Low Prices, there is no other place where they can be fitted out as well with everything from HATS to SHOES.
F you reside out of New York City, we can serve you as well by mail. Please mote our plan. A general Catalogue issued once or twice a year has proved so unsatisfactory to describe our goods (at least so unsatisfactory to us) that we have discontinued it. The time necessary for its preparation obliged us to have the matter in the hands of the Engravers and Printers long before all of the styles for the season were ready, so that by the time the book reached our customers our stock contained very many desirable goods not shown in it, and many of the styles prepared early had been sold out; therefore it never represented what we tried to have it represent, i.e., the goods that we had on hand. The result often was disappointment and delay to those ordering from it. We have found it to be much more satisfactory to give special information in answer to each individual inquiry, and that is our present plan. Tell us by mail what you require for your children —giving us some general idea of the colors desired, what the garments are for, etc., just as you would if you called personally at the store—and we will immediately send you samples, illustrations, and full descriptions of our latest styles, suitable for the purpose discribed.—Your letter of to-day will be answered by illustrations and samples of to-day.
We include Youths' and Misses' sizes up to 18 years.

“How is your son getting along in New York, Mr. Hayseed " “I guess he ain't doin' as well as he says he is. He was home t'other day; an' had on a colored shirt an’ a white collar. I rayther suspect he's behind with his washer-woman.”
A captain on one of the Bay Line steamers, plying between Baltimore and Norfolk, tells the following story of his old stewardess, well known to travellers on that route as “Aunt Koi." It seems that the old wo. man was skilled in making a certain gargle, and one of the passengers being troubled with a sore throat, the captain sent to ask that she would prepare some of her famous remedy for him. Meeting her in the saloon a short time after this request had been made, the captain stopped her to inquire into his friend's condition. “Well, Aunt Maria,” he said, “how do you think Mr. Smith is now on “Well, sah, cap'n,” replied Aunt Maria, setting her arms akimbo, and 199king, cross-eyed, as was her wo, when about to deliver her opinion, “I thinks, sah, dat de apples of his ears is done fell.” The captain declares that to this day he has never discovered what art of !. human anatomy the apples of one's ears are, nor did he nquire into Aunt Maria's meaning, lest the old woman's explanation should involve the matter in even greater obscurity.
OWERHEARD ON A FERRY-BOAT.
“What is that, mamma 2"
Oh, the roses that daintily busted
And the robin has just exodusted
The landscape is pensive and wistful And purple and hazy by turns,
And the maiden sighs over a fistful Of golden-rods, asters, and ferns.
The shoemaker's now waxing soulful, The poet turns hand-springs of grief,
And the bin in the cellar is coalful, And the lard of the piglet's in leaf.
The light on the far hills is touchful,
And the gun for the rabbit's too muchful,
Now the darkness is o'er the land creeping, And the pot-pie envelops the bird,
While the flames up the chimney are leaping, And the bark on the brass dogs is heard.
Oh, the pig in the blazes is crackling,
And, now the old cook is slapjackling,
All the leaflets are wrinkled and tarnished, And the sweet-Billiam blossoms no more;
All the apples are cut, dried, and varnished— " They’re a mockery right to the core.
Oh, November, November, November,
When the baby once gets on his feet he's sure to go ahead.
man. It was a portière of satin, with three suc
cessive bands or planes of decoration, the centre one being a composition based upon the fleur-delis, over a decorative band of disks, with a flight of sparrows above. It was not only a fine piece of embroidery, but a valuable lesson in American design. During this period of growth various schools of needle-work were formed throughout the country, under the influence and advice of the New York society. Progressive Chicago was, I believe, the first to take this step. Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Detroit, San Francisco, and others followed, and before long every woman of talent in the land could in some way appropriate this means of expression for any artistic feeling or knowledge she might possess. To a few it was precisely the tool needed. Mrs. Holmes, a woman of great artistic ability, had long before this chosen silks and bits of stuff with which to make to herself pictures, using them as a painter uses the colors upon his palette. A stretch of pale blue silk, with outlined hills lying against it, made for her a sky and background, while a middle distance of flossy white stitches, advancing into well-defined daisies, brought the foreground to one's very feet." Flower-laden apple branches against the sky, the reddening leaves and cones of the sumac: in neglected fence corners—all suffered themselves to be expressed, and well expressed, in these materials. In what one may call pictorial art in needlework, Mrs. Weld has also been most happy. Her bits of swampy soil, where the spotted leaves of the adder's-tongue, the yellow water-lily, with its compact balls, and the flaming cardinal-flower are growing, while swamp grasses are nodding above, are as good in their way as any color sketch of them could be, and affect one with the sentiment of the scene, as it is the mission of art to do. Miss Hannah Weld has also from the first been remarkable for her correct and beautiful use of natural forms, while Miss Caroline Townshend, of Albany, Mrs. William Hoyt, of Pelham, and Mrs. Dewey, of New York, have each contributed very largely to the formation of characteristic and progressive needle - work art in America. There are individuals here and there in the West and South who have also, perhaps unknown to themselves, helped in this progress; indeed, I remember many pieces of embroidery loaned for the Bartholdi Exhibition of 1883 which would have done credit to any period of the art, and each piece undoubtedly had its influence. The work of schools or societies has been much less marked by original development. During the ten years of their existence the four largest societies—those of New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago—have been under the direction of English teachers, and have followed more or less closely the excellencies of the English school. Even in Boston, where, owing to the decided cultivation of art, and the early introduction of drawing in the public schools, one would have looked for a rather characteristic develop
ment, English designs and methods have been
somewhat closely followed. In attempting to account for this fact one must remember that it is against the nature of associated authority to follow individual or original suggestions. There must be a broad and well-trodden path for committees to walk together in, and the track of the Kensington School is broad and authoritative enough for such following. It would be impossible to give a true history of modern American embroidery without recog: nizing the influence of the associated artists. It had its beginning in the cohesion of several artists who, in working casually together for the Society of Decorative Art, found their progress
limited by the philanthropic objects of the soci
ety. Feeling the splendid opportunities and encouragements of the time for art, they decided to try the effect of three distinctly decorative branches, carried on together—that of stained glass, under Mr. Tiffany; color decoration and artistic use of textiles, under Mr. Coleman; and the more feminine art of embroidery, the importance of which they fully recognized. Having been the member to whom embroidery and design were committed, I can speak authoritatively as to the effect upon it of the other arts, and I can hardly imagine better conditions for its development. The color influence of glass staining and painting was very great, and the necessity of work worthy to accompany the ef. forts of men so prominent in their professions was a constant incitement. Even after this branch of art developed to a point when it was judged best to place it upon an independent footing the influence remained, and is easily seen in its present work.
Some of the results are before the public in the exhibition of embroideries and tapestriesgiven by the associated artists in November, which shows not only pieces directly from their own rooms, but others from societies and individuals. It is but fair to state that the loaned work very inadequately represents its sources, since the best embroideries of all societies are ordered pieces, which pass at their completion at once into the hands of the buyer.
