What the Gay World of Fashion is Wearing—The Very Latest Styles, " FLOWERED" GOODS THE THING. *)\ey Will Be Quite Popular In. tlic Conn- try and by the Sen. 1 Flowered goods arc "tho thing" this Kummcr, both with woven and stamped figures. Satin princess comes In all the delicato evening shades brocaded with small floTvcrsin their natural, brilliant colors. Changeable moires arc also shown with clamasso floral effects, nnd blnck Biolrcs with tapestry flower designs. Ktrlped chintz patterns are reproduced In Bilk weaves, the stripes being in satin of delicate tones mingled with tiny sprays or bouquets. Then comes tho vast array of taffetas and surahs, having self colored bands nnd clusters of flowers and leaves in A woven pattern. These aro also shown in a variety of changeable tints, and in that case tho figure has a different tone from that of the ground. In addition to thoso appear tho usual printed India nnd china- silks—cool, pretty and Inexpensive—for summer gowns, and yet wearing very well. FASHIONS FOB THE PAIR SEX, At the right is a pelisse of thick brocaded black satin, cut like a princess dress. In the center is a stylish vest costume of electric brown iron twill serge. The vest is of cream colored cloth braided with hrown soutache. At the left U a pretty walking suit of gobelin liluo antelope cloth. FIOUIiED. INDIA SILK GOWN. Besides the flowered silks mentioned there are many chnllios prettily sprinkled with floral designs, and, daintiest of all, French organdies in white and delicato tints embroidered with dots nnd printed Kith nosegays or detached blossoms. These, combined with lace, make charming summer gowns. Of course tho popularity of these flimsy fabrics has produced styles suited to them, Involving puffs, ruffles, panniers, draperies and shirrings of all sorts. As usual, these special fashions favor tho slender woman rather than tho .•plump one, but tho latter can always tall back on tho tailor mado styles, which aro Jiers particularly, and which aro not only neat, but simple. Novices often proclaim that plain styles aro more difficult to make successfully tlian furbelowcd ones, but it is nevertheless a fact that a much trimmed gown badly mado looks worse than a simple one equally badly made, for it has tho additional drawback of pretentiousness. A sketch is given of a gown of printed India silk, tho skirt of which Is plain In front, but slightly draped at tho back. The round bodice is gathered in at tho waist and has a square loco yoke outlined with a silk rufflo. Tho sleeves, which havo a puff above tho elbow, are tight below it and havo lace cuffs. A velvet ribbon bolt surrounds tho waist, from which depend two long ends. Four velvet rosettes trim the bottom of tho frout of tho skirt. JUDIC CUOLLET. back. These capes are scarcely as attractive as thoso made entirely of moire, however. Tho latter aro often cheapened in appearance by a trimming of white lace, but when black is used tho effect Is very good. Moire is not serviceable for general wear, of course, and therefore a number of cloth capes aro shown, mainly in black. A sketch is given of 6ne which was mado to match a severe walking costume. It is composed of three graduated circular capes, very flaring and plainly finished With stitching. The garment has a high, close collar. JUDIC CHOLLET. VELVETEENS AND VELVETS. A. Dazzling Display nnd Prices to Suit a Short Parse. Corduroy In tho regulation beaver, gray and brown shades has reappeared this season, while velveteens aro shown in as large a variety of colors as silk velvets and aro really beautiful in tint and texture. They aro much more serviceable for ordinary wear than velvet, being unaffected by writer, and are wider and far less costly, but theso virtues aro not sufficient to relegate them to a despised position in tho wardrobe. Velveteen is often combined with fine wool goods in imported street gowns and is frequently embroidered in patterns for trimming purposes. Besides tho plain varieties sold by tho yard there are a number displayed having tiny silk embroidered dots or flecks in a contrasting color. There is also a kind having narrow ribs in two tones, which catch tho light with a chango- gourd and decorated with gold medallions. There aro also shown some now Japanese pincushions mado in tho form of an ear of maize, with tho green husk still partly enveloping it and a withered looking tas- SHOULDERS ON THE SLANT. The Newest Puffs Aro Inuuccut of Gathers at the Top. It is evident that eloping shoulders aro to bo tho fashion for some time to come. Sleeves began to como down from their lofty position ovcrn year ago, and this season marks another Btivgo in their descent. Tho newest puffs ore cut in circular form, co that wliilo they are full around tho ol- l>ow they aro quite innocent of gathers at the top. A stylo of sleeve is now shown in which tho upper part is laid in fiat tucks and Is sufficiently elongated to extend completely over tho shoulder and up to tho collar. This gives tho slanting effect with a vengcancn, and if it were not n fashionable novelty it would bo considered ugly, but no doubt wo shall soon become used to it. It is a suitable modo for tho woman with broad, Bquiu'o shoulders, who, so long tho accepted wold of form, finds hcrsolf suddenly bereft of hor prestige and undor tho necessity of (simulating Iho EMBROIDERED BAG. sel of silk at tho tip. The Japanese artificial flowers sold for decorative purposes re really wonderful. Tho blooming cher- y branches aro especially noticeable for lie fidelity of reproduction. Japanese art- sts havo a particular fondness for fruit lossoms, and tho cherry is a favorite, bong copied by them more frequently than uy other flower except tho chrysantho-, num. A great many French and Viennese tclass nd metal novelties are imported by estab- ishments making a specialty of them, and hings may often bo found there which .re never seen at tho largo fancy goods louses generally patronized. Some benuti- ul vases and rose bowls of water green glass are exhibited, both plain and deco- •ated with embossed garlands in gold, be- Idcs a variety of cups and saucers, trays and similar articles of fine china sprinkled all over with tiny roses, pansies or forgot- nonots. Also there are marvclously lifo- iko little birds and animals made of mutal and enameled in tho natural colors. Those ire most artistically done. A sketch is given of a fancy bag having i. square bottom and triangular sides, in- ido tit which is tho gathered bag of silk. Tho stiff bottom and sides, which aro all n one piece and aro bent Into shape, aro covered with silk or plush, and tho edge is finished with a cord. Each triangle has a sprig of flowers embroidered upon it, and ho lower corners •are adorned with small bows of ribbon. JUDIC CHOLLBT. 'ill nut brown sorgo. The skirt Is trimmed With bands of harrow block velvet ribbon. Tho full botUoo fastens behind, and the Waist is encircled by a sash of blnck velvet ribbon. The sleeve hns a balloon puff from shoulder to elbow, ending in a ruffle trimmed with velvet ribbon, A wide collar covers the shoulders, nnd a standing collar of velvet finishes tho neck. JUDIC CHOILET. SMART COVERT CLOTH COSTUMES. they Are Very Fetching, nnil a Sun Umbrella Goon With Them. Among tho light woolen fabrics Intended for serviceable wear, covert cloth Is tho first favorite. In fawn, gray nud tan shades it Is much used for tailor mado gowns as well «w for thin outer jackets and Is n plenslng change from tho monotonous alternative of sorgo or glossy finished goods, tho two materials most in vogtlo for tho past few years. Trimmed with the- FOR YOUNG AMERICA. COVERT CLOTH COSTUME. huge carved mother of pearl buttons now so fashionable—white, clouded or Iridescent—and finished with neat rows of stitching, those covert cloth costumes are confessedly "smart," as the phrase goes, and extremely useful for city, seaside or mountain wear. The stuff is thin and light in weight, nnd if it is simply mado and lined with silk nnd linen material It will bo found not too heavy for ordinary warm weather. Sun umbrellas having white handles terminated by dresdcn halls havo been brought out to go with these goods. They are covered with silk woven ill tiny checks of white, with gray, tan or brown, with sometimes an intermingling of more conspicuous colors, such as dark blue, garnet or buff. These umbrellas roll up Into remarkably small compass and are provided with tight cases of tho same silk and big white silk tassels. Plain white linen collar and cuffs und a hat of mixed straw commend themselves as adjuncts of the covert cloth gown, tho wearer of which may feel equally at ease in sunshine and shower, provided her boots are In no danger of becoming dump. Boots are an extremely sensitive part of a woman's anatomy. One wotting destroys forever the perfection of their fit and stiffens them into dull unpliability. Speaking of boots, patent leather retains its popularity and is much worn in both buttoned and laced boots, but tho latter are almost invariably cut in tho bluchcr style. It is hardly possible to find a flno laced boot of tho once ordinary cut. High hools havo quite gone out for street wear. Those made of leather lifts are referred to, for no woman with any pretense to good taste over wore tho wooden kid covered heels anywhere except in tho house or in her carriage. A sketch is given of a covert cloth gown having a plain bell skirt und a round waist, over which is a tightly fitting Eton jacket lapping diagonally over tho chest, where it is fastened by three largo peart buttons. Tho glgot sleovcs have also three buttons at tho wrist. Bows of stitching iluish tho costume. JUDIC CHOLLBT.
