The English Philistine surpasses al] the rest of his kind the world over. The new woman in bloomers has lately j tracted his iré, and he has been fighting her with a bitterness as ungallant as il is anrasing. The other day he inserted the following advertisement in the"ag' ony" column of the London Standard: Deuteronomy, Pifth Verse, Twenty-second Chapter.- "The woman shall not wear tha( , wbich pertaineth to a man, fur all that do SC are an abomiiiation unto the Lord thy God." This was, of course, intended to clinch , the matter, because the British ! tine always wages war with the Bible in one hand - preferably the Oíd ! ment - and is able to draw therefrom a , text to prove anything. Bnt woe to a wicked, carnal and sacrilegious generattion ! The new woman would not be put down with a text. She had no text of her own, but she lannched at the Philistine the followiug, whioh must hare added uot a little to the poiguancy oi his woe: Tho modern woman thinks that trew Would add to human bonhoinie. And so shfc [ :actices her viewa In spite of Deuteronomy.
