WIGS IN COURT. Bench and Bar In England Stick to the Traditional Hoadgear. American visitors to KiiKllnh courtrooms have been struck by the strange apponranee-—HtraiiKO to their eyes, at leant—of Judges and lawyers In wigs. Times and customs change, but the judicial wig of Kngland remains unchanged. Hench and bar hold faithfully to the traditional headgear. Until 18ii7 human hair \vas used In making the wigs, which wore heavily powdered when worn, but since then white horsehair has In-en used. While English horsehair IH considered the best, the wlgmakera buy supplies In Franco, Russia and even China and South America. Every operation in the manufacture of wlgc Is by hand except the curling, and tills Is done on a small hand curling machine. Most of the wigs run from twenty-one to twenty-four and a hull' inches In circumference. The wig of the average member of the bar costs |30. Full bottomed wigs, such us nre worn occasionally by judges and the king's counsel and always by the speaker of the house of commons, cost about $CO. Few lawyers buy more than one wig In the course of their career at the bar. Some of t'.ie most famous advocates of England may be seen la court with dilapidated wig and rusty gown.—Philadelphia North American. When Children Smoked. Every one has reud that Hawkins Introduced tobacco Into England and thnt King ;iumes Inveighed against It. Elisabeth liked to sit on a low stool and watch Sir Walter Ititlelgh putting away. In Anne's reign almost every 0110 smoked. In Charles H.'.s reign "children wore Bout to school with their pipes la their satchels, and tho schoolmaster called n halt la their studios while they smoked." In 1702 Jorcvlu spout an evening with his brother at Garrnway's coffee house, Lewis, and writes: "I was surprised to see his sickly child of three years old fill Its pipe of tobacco and suioke It as audfarnadly ns a man of threescore. After that n second arid third pipe without the least concern, as It IH Bald to have done above u year ago." Women Smokers In 'Ireland. Tin; comparison between women smoking In England and hi 'Ireland, says a correspondent, is hardly on all fovirs. In Ireland nmuy of the older women whoso lives uro spout in hard toll smoke In tho country districts, but they would utterly disdain a cigarette. They smoke a .short "cutty" plpo and (hi) very strongest ami most pungent tobacco—I.Imorlck roll. It Is no uncommon thing for a niau to hand his lighted "cully" plpo, black with long seasoned smoking, over to a woman for ,11 "draw," as It Is called, hi IMuml tho plpo has long boon tlio solace of the pour, a god. hardworking woman, mill tho habit has its origin In tho use of tobaiV') for allaying the pangs of hunger la famlno dn.vs. London Chronicle.
