Si' f What the Gay World of Fashion is Wearing—The Very Latest Styles, FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD. A-tiiovU-ans Should Get There OftoiieT—Gar- den 1'nrtj- Gowns For Such Outings. In Bpitu of the fog, frequent rain nnrt ro- innrluiblc uncertainty of climate, out of door Hinuscnu'iits nro exceedingly popular iu Enplnml. The English spend n largo proportion of their sunny summer clnys in bonting, picnicking, milking excursions to points of interest mill iittciullng or giving lawn parties. It seems ratlior odd that Americans, who hnvo in general a far brighter nnd more dependable climato to count upon, do not take moro kindly to open nir diversions. They play tennis, to bo sure, but that is almost the only out of door recreation in which they iudulgo as a class. Tho French nnd Gormnns, whoso climatic is moro liko our own, are also open nir people nnd delight to bo out of doors even though Inanimate naturo bo represented only by n stunted grapevine or the trollised vestibule of a restaurant. It is curious that the inhabitants of this young GARDEN PARTY GOWN. country, which is yet in its childhood, should have lost the primeval dcsiro for sylvan surroundings which is still felt in all its forco by nations hoary with antiquity. Tho shopgirls of Paris spend their .weekly holiday in the suburbs, where they can see green fields and drink their thin wine under a leafy lattice, but American men and women of the samo class rush to the most crowded thoroughfares of tho city on Sunday to find their recreation and enjoyment. When they enter tho public parks, they throng tho edges of tho drives . and swell tho crowd in the main paths, ignoring tho small green alleys and leafy nooks within their reach; It is hot a de- siro for out of doors that inspires them, "but a craving to bo a part of tho jostling, mass ot humanity for which thoro is not room under cover. It is tho samo with the wealthier classes. Tho most crowded mountain and seaside caravansaries arc the most attractive to tho summer visitant. Except for the daily Boa bath or sentimental sunset stroll, tho guests spend their days in dawdling about the verandas or billiard rooms and their nights in dancing'in overheated halls. They do these things better in Prance. They associate, with pastoral naturo thoro, although they mako her wear rouge ond high heels. Even, tho modistes design their prettiest gowns to bo worn against tho background sho spreads for them. A sketch is given of a gown suitable for a lawn party. It is of lettuce green and white chinn Bilk draped with white llbor- ty satin. Tho garniture is of gurpuro, with violet velvet rosettes. JDDIC CHOLLET. REDINGOTES COMING TO LIFE. A Pretty One of Pongco That In Intended I'or Summer Traveling. Whenever princess gowns uro in voguo the mlingoto is sure to show indications of coming to lifo. It insinuated itself in conspicuously nmong last winter's fashions and is seen nguin this summer iusov crnl forms. It is a never settled question •whether stout women look best in plain or draped gowns. Tho theory of many per sons is that close, plain styles diminish tho apparent size, while their opponents declare that drapery shrouds uud conceals tho real bulk <>t tho form, persuading tho oye of the observer that the major portion ol tho figure is composed of surplus cloth. It is a poor rule which will not work both ways. Wo all know that u very slender woman appears to greatest advantage in frills nml f uvbolows, undthoroforo it would seem that plain garments would best bo- 1'OKfJI'Il! nUDINHOTC. <-umi; t»o plump wmiHi.

Redingotcs are seen mainly among out- ide garments as yet, and then not over- lentifully. A sketch is given of one in- ended for summer traveling which is very rctty. It is made of pongee and is double roasted, tho front being ornamented with argo buttons. It comes within three nehcs of tho bottom of tho gown. Tho wide, full collar and rovers give It charac- ;cr. The gigot sleeves are of satin. JUDIC CHOLLET. FOR EVENING AND HOME WEAR. At tho left is an evening gown of pale pink beugnline, with the lower part of the skirt of taffeta. The skirt of the center gown is of opaline silk, the sleeves of flame colored velvet, and the waist of chiffon lace. At the light is a poplin with biaa checks and white dimity collar for home wear. GOOD AND BAD TASTE. udlc Chollct Defines Them and Describes a Gown In Gold and Blnot What constitutes tho difference between •ood and bad taste? Good taste may bo lirly defined as an intuitive perception of no fitness of things, but it is impossible o lay down rigid rules of color and form y following which the effect of good taste nay be secured. In tho matter of dress, or instance, what is in good tasto at no time or on ono person may bo ex- BLUE AND GOLD TAFFETA GOWN, ecrablo taste elsewhere. After a few broad aws of universal application have been observed there remain a host of minor considerations which must bo settled by each ndividual according to her particular ro- lulremonts. Certain persons maintain ,hat only dark and dull colors should be worn in tho street, becivuso they are neat and unuggrcssivo. Others insist that Brighter tints are equally appropriate and jivo an effect of lifo and cheerfulness, besides being moro becoming. One author- ty Declares that short walking skirts nro ungraceful, unfeminino and immodest, and only a woman who is unduly anxious ,o display her feet will wear them; mi other reviles long ones as clumsy nnd un dy. A writer on mlquotto states that u woman who cuts in u restaurant without wholly removing her veil is guilty of u 2roBB solecism; another replies that as the ^arrangement of tho veil Involves tho adjustment of the hair it Is n worse solecism io mako u dressing room of a dining apart nient. A critic of manners contemns tho woman who slips off tho hand of her long glovo at dinner and tucks it in at tho wrist; another avows that only a vulgarian Will strip off nnd draw on in public gloves long enough tu suggest hosiery. It is at Due time announced that nobody ought to Wear black, as It adds 10 years to tho apparent ago. Boon after appears a rccoin inondation of black gowns as being unl vcrsally becoming and invariably in good taste. All thesii differing opinions may bo both right and wrong, us circumstances alter cases in every all'iiir of lifo, and an ordinarily clover wimmn m-i-tls only to ex- orclso her gift of tact in order to bo an au thorlty unto herself, wiser than any out Kliio oiui that slin can consult.
