Webster's 1913 Dictionary
\Vogue\, n. [F. vogue a rowing, vogue, fashion, It. voga,
fr. vogare to row, to sail; probably fr. OHG. wag?n to move,
akin to E. way. Cf. {Way}.]
1. The way or fashion of people at any particular time;
   temporary mode, custom, or practice; popular reception for
   the time; -- used now generally in the phrase in vogue.

         One vogue, one vein, One air of thoughts usurps my
         brain.                                --Herbert.

         Whatsoever its vogue may be, I still flatter myself
         that the parents of the growing generation will be
         satisfied with what ?? to be taught to their
         children in Westminster, in Eton, or in Winchester.

         Use may revive the obsoletest words, And banish
         those that now are most in vogue.     --Roscommon.

2. Influence; power; sway. [Obs.] --Strype.
