A sketch is.glven of a gown of grenadier blue serge, with a rather full skirt and an exceptionally long coat girdled at the waist by n white silk sash tied at the left side of tho front. The coat has flaring cuffs of white Bilk, and revers and flaring collar lined with the same material.

A gown of thin black goods Is an extremely useful unit of tho summer wardrobe. Its wear In city streets Is to be deprecated If the material be of a lacy texture, but for house, carriage or out of town use It Is eminently satisfactory. A beautiful quality of large meshed silk riot Is shown for summer dresses. It Is rather expensive, as ** l8 on * T ° y nrd w ' de Instead of the usual 45 Inches, but It will wear practically forever, being of a firm texture. It Is to bo found both plain and sprinkled with small dots. For outdoor I CHILD'S GOWN OF BLUE VOtLE. . ence. He was very fair, with short flaxen curls, and ho wore a red and white striped sailor suit, wjth knee breeches, and short white socks that left his legs bare. His ilouso had a wide red collar and red cuffs, and a red straw sailor hat had slipped to the back of his cherubic little head. A iprettier costume for a small boy could not iave been devised. Bed is much used for children. Babies Who can just walk go toddling along by the nurse's side in minute red shoes that anust add greatly to tho delight of exorcising the newly acquired accomplishment, or they wear little scarlet coats or full gowns of soft red cashmere. Kilt suits for tiny boys are made of white linen duck and trimmed with red duck and are worn with short red socks. These kilt suits may also be f ound trimmed with Ught'and dark blue. The custom of dressing nurses In any uniform except the modest white muslin apron and cap has attained no foothold in this country, although abroad, except in Great Britain, children's nurses are often clothed In the most brilliant and fantastic garments—a hlghy decorated cap, with • wide colored streamers hanging to the bottom of the skirt, and an ample circular of equally vivid tint. At intervals a vision of this sort glorifies American streets, but it Is recognized at once as an exotic nurse who has been brought here by a recently .arrived foreign family. The little girl of whose frock a picture •Is given was In charge of one of these gayly dressed maids. The child's gown was of light blue voile, trimmed with three bands of white Insertion, applied in points on the skirt. The round bodice was gathered In at the waist under a black sash, the ends •of which were trimmed with white lace. JUDIO CHO'LLET. CHOKERS ARE DOOMED. tow Necked Curmento Will Be In Vogue Again This Year. It is said that low necked garments aro to be worn again this year. They are not out to an evening lowness, of course, but are in tho collarless style of five years ago and of 80 years previous to that. This will bo a sudden and decided contrast to the high collars and various tall fluffinosses now prevalent, but tho stylo has, as a matter of fact, appeared in Paris, although it is little seen here yet. It has its odvan- thing, they have long ends in front, and ribbon enters largely into their composition. An illustration is given of a short summer mantle made of black satin. It has short capelike sleeves composed of five ruffles of lace and is trimmed with jet passe- menterie and tulle embroidered with jet, which forms revers In front and epaulets. The neck is cut down and has no collar, and a> rosette of black satin ribbon is placed at the back. Bretelles of ribbon, beginning under bows at the shoulders, extend to the waist behind. JVDIC CHOLLET. all fabrics. Black is decidedly In vogue, as would naturally be the case during a highly colored season, as it is requlredby way of contrast and for toning down effects that might otherwise seem gaudy. Today's sketch shows a costume of silver gray accordion plaited foulard combined with striped silk. The striped skirt has FOR THE WATER NYMPHS. Bathing Costumes That Are Things of Beauty and Joys For a Season. The time of year has arrived when every little piece of water big enough to get into assumes an inviting glassiness of surface and warm limpidity of depth that tempt one to plunge in regardless of consequences unless one bo of the exceptional class who do not enjoy open air bathing. To those who aro sufficiently warm blood- Lies in buying good things. Good things need to be high priced. Indeed we venture to say that jour prices are lower than the fame goods can be bought for anywhere else. There are certain prices below which no good, honest clothing can be sold. We have marked all our goods at this low figure and our terms are one price to all. If you pay less you get cheaper goods. No use dodging this fact. An examination of our goods and a comparison ot our prices with those of our competitors, will convince the most skeptical. NOCRELS & GNAM, The Reliable One-Price Clothiers,.

All children delight in dabbling iii water, and perhaps this is a survival of childish tastes. At any rate, it Is a very Innocent pleasure and a very leveling one. We all look alike in tho water, as far as distinctions of beauty and society go, provided we ore all real water lovers and do not merely pretend to bathe. The wet hair of tho mistress and of the maid looks equally like seaweed, and tho nose of the patrician and of tho proletariat burns regardless of class distinctions. Many persons who cannot bathe In fresh water can go into salt water with Impunity because of Its vigorous and stimulating quality. A pretty bathing suit keeps Its beauty In freshwater far longer than when It Is worn Into tho ocean, but that is the only point In which the advantogq does not rest with salt water. Ono does not swim quite so rapidly In the latter, but one keeps up longer und with less fatigue on account of its buoyant quality. An Illustration is given of a white flannel battling costume. The bodice, which is made with a yoke, is gathered into a bolt, to which aro sewed the short trousers. The scant skirt Is gathered Into a belt having bottonholos corresponding to buttons on tho bolt of the bodice and trousers. Tho sleeves arc short and are hold to tho arm by elastic to pro- vent 'chafing, wbioh is sure to happen if a swimmer's sleeves uro loft loose.

This material Is not transparent, but Is of light quality.and although thin Is rich looking, so much so as to bo suitable only for middle aged and elderly women. Plain black silk muslin is also seen and is a very pretty sort of stuff, thin und cool. These block gowns ore in good taste and generally becoming*, but there is at least one type of woman who should shun black with a dull finish, and that Is tho florid type. Instead of toning down her color, it increases it tenfold by contrast and Is as detrimental. to tho appearance of her complexion as turquoise blue, which is putting It strongly. A woman who is inclined to overflushing should never venture to wear dull block unless she modifies it by a liberal use of cherry or scarlet, which are strong enough tints to moke her skin look white. , ., «™i A sketch is given of a gown of dotted net, the skirt of which Is caught up with bands of Jet.

It is taken off with the layer of blabber next to it and is eaten raw without ceremony. Mr. Nansen declares that he must offer the Eskimos bis sinoerest congratulations on the invention of this dish: , 1 can assure the reader that now as i write of it my mouth waters at the very thought of matak, with its indescribably delicate taste of nuts and oysters mingled. And then it has this advantage over oysters, that the skin is as tough as indiu rubber to masticate, so that the enjoyment can be protracted to any extent.
