COBS NJOT so very long Ago the military attache of oae <rf tfMM ^ 1 republics in Central America, where ttiey are ah*ayg having resolutions, came up to New York from the lefaticm at waaUfiftoa on ^ important official business. Calling upon a military tiiMr joi» fifth Avenue he explained his mission. There had been a change of aoministVa- tiops in liis country—the first one, it would seem* in nearly nine months —and the new government had decided to alter the utmbfffis' of ,all the branches of the national defense. . ' V' • was the visitor's purpose to give the contracts. He had brought with 'him special designs, hand-colored in the chosen ertectB. There ensued :i busy time in the tailor shop. It would seem that the fancy of the Central Americans ran to startling contrasts in color and to much use of braid, buttons, rosettes, festoons and plumage. Undress and full-dress had been selected for the navy, for the officers and men of the infantry, and for the artillery. Next, the attache produced a drawing for a costume more tforgeous than any he already had shown. There was a cocked hat, rather resembling the'kind worn by the Knights Templar in this country excepting that it was bright red in color with an adornment of vivid green parrot-feathers floating out behind. There was a double-breasted blue coat heavily embossed with gold iace on the cuffs, sleeves, breast, collar, and skirts. There wore baggy crimson riding-breeches, also be-laced down the seams. There was a. pair of shiny black, patent leather ridjng' boots with an adornment of silver spurs and, for final touches, massive bullion epaulets and \yhite erossTiplts finished o_ff with huge bright buckles. '•'Ah," said the dazzled tailor, "how very striking! I presume this uniform is to be worn by your cavalry?" "\ . . i "Oh no," said the attache. "This is for our Secret Service."
