The neck is one of the most sensitive portions of the human body, and it needs particular attention; and yet one often finds girls going about one day smothered in a fur boa, and the next with nothing -whatever to protect the throat. At this season of the year, for furs are now frequently worn in summer, especially at the seaside, this may in some cases be done with impunity, though not in all; but in winter, doubtless not a few severe colds might be traced to changes from thick to thin neck wraps. A schoolboy's composition on 'The Editor' ran as follows :—" The editor is one of the happiest beggars in the world. He can go to the circus in the afternoon and evening without paying a farthing, also to inquests and hangings. He has free tickets to the theatres, gets wedding cake sent to him, and sometimes gets licked, but not often, for he can take things back in the next issue, which he generally does. While other folks have to go to bed early, the editor can sit an every night and see all that is going on."
