In strolling about the Centennial grounds, our artist overhears a conversation between a Scotchman, a Swiss and a Parissionne. The two bare-kneed gentlemen invite the fair Francaise to a dance, but she declines, on the ground that she doesn’t dance with men who don’t wear pantaloons. He calls for a class of ice-water, and pays for it. He finds that he has just given $1.50 for that little delicacy. At the “Wild Man Show,” one of the wild men takes the prize medal, but the manager is at a loss how to attach the medal to the wild man’s skin. The central figure in the artist’s illustration represents the new fashionable female Exposition attire.
