What the Gay World of Fashion is Wearing—The Very Latest Styles, ALMOST TOO EXUBERANT. Judlc Cliollot Thinks lints nml Itoiinets Are Deflowered Ueyoncl Reason, The floral decorations used on hats this year are almost too exuberant In both quantity and variety. Three or four different kinds of flowers nro clustered together on one hat, and unless the grouping Is Tery skillfully done the effect IB not pleasing. The little auriculas In various colors •re much used, and those compact little tunchcs ore Interspersed with slender sprays of other varieties of blossoms, giving a result which is unsatisfactory to the eye, however up to date It may be. Jetted tips are a prettier trimming, although they are of short lived beauty, as the glittering frost drops off very quickly and leaves the feathers in a too evidently dismantled condition. All headgear intended for women's-wear Kerns to" bo of an ephemeral character, meant only for the quietest of sunny days. The severe simplicity and ugliness of a man's hats permit him to appear at an equal advantage in all weathers, butwom- BTEATV AND LACE HAT. en, unlessihey adopt masculine styles, find It difficult to keep from looking more or less bedraggled in times of bad weather. To women who have no occasion to go out «f doors except on bright days this is of no consequence, but to the many others who do go out it is a great annoyance to experience the facts that velvet and ribbon ore •potted by rain, lace wilts and ostrich feathers look as if they were plucked from • wet hen. There is a certain degree of consolation in knowing that a man, in ipite of his superiority in convenience of costume, undergoes on exactly similar vexation when his new silk hat is exposed to an unexpected shower. A favorite trimming for Inco hats is a largo garland of roses or perhaps more buds and foliage. This includes several , iprays besides three or four long rubber •terns set with thorns and tiny buds or leaflets. A transparent hat thus decorated needs no other garniture. One or two of the sprays are allowed to stand erect, while the rest ore laid along the brim and round the crown, one being permitted to drop upon the hair. The sketch given is of a largo hat of fancy straw of the natural color. The brim is covered with white lace, which drops over the edge. In front is a cluster of four black tips, held together by a tight bunch of pink roses. A little to the right of, the • tack are three full blown pink roses. JUDIO CUOLLET. WALKING AND VISITING GOWNS. At the loft is a walking costume of purple cloth, open in front and allowing a maize satin breadth with three rows of white lace. The cape is of lace and hoi rows of gold braid on the collar. Two more walking and visiting gowns are shown. octerlstlo dress which shall be cosmopolitan enough to embrace the beauties of the costumes of all countries and national enough to Include the disadvantages of none. A sketch Is given of a pretty neck garniture of wide block moire ribbon and spangled block lace. The ribbon forms the heading of a full bertha of the lace, and a tight wrinkled collar of moire surround the neck. The ribbon is brought down to a point in front where the bertha fastens under a large moire bow. JUDIC CnoLLET. TRAVELING A CIRCLE. learning all the intricacies of the process Is no easy task. It takes about a dozen balls of silk for an ordinary pair of stockings, but when they arc finished they are infinitely, better than any that can bo bought. A woman who has a brother or a husband whom she wishes to please very much will certainly succeed in doing so if she knits him a pair of black silk socks for evening wear. Fashion I» a Merry Go Round Thmt Tnnu to the Same Old Tune. Fashion seems never to make any real progress. Like a bewildered traveler, she goes In a circle. She passes through certain phases of sense and beauty, but she is. I sure sooner or later to return on her own tracks and revive foolish and ugly styles that her votaries fancied were done away with long ago. Witness the Victorian modes, unblushlngly reproduced for ua after the really artistic dressing of three or four years ago. Wo have not been compelled to go the entire length and wear hoops, scoop bonnets and shoulder scams long enough to reach the elbow, but we have gone quite as far as Is safe. Curiously enough, the one feature of these styles worthy of seeing the light again has been Ignored—that Is, the very full sleeve gathered Into a tight band which was buttoned WHY SHOULD PARIS DICTATE? indie Chollct C rices American* to Originate Their Own Fashion*. Parisian authorities tell us that moire In both plain and fancy varieties was never BO much used as at present, and that block and white are still a favorite combination. By the bye, why must we In America depend BO absolutely on the dictum of people at the other side of the world in regard to costume? Why do wo not Lave our own authorities on dress and invent our own styles rather than appear in European fashions which have begun to bo •tale there'before tlioy have gained a hold hero? As it is, wo look to England for our tailor'made modes and got all the rest from Paris, with a little unacknowledged assistance from Vienna. Perhaps our slav- IshncsB in this respect accounts in a measure for the opinion entertained of us by the average uutravelcd European, who fan- CROCHETED I/ACE. A variation on the late popular fancy of following out an embroidery pattern on cushion covers with waved braid, fastening It down with embroidery stitches, is the idea of trimming summer gowns with feather edge braid applied In the same way. A gown of light blue duck hod the front breadth of the skirt covered with a design outlined with white feather edge braid, and the rovers, vest and cuffs were similarly decorated. Embroidered baby jackets for the house are often seen this year and are as dainty a kind of work as anybody could wish to do. An exceptionally pretty one was of fine white cashmere and was embroidered in tiny scallops around the edge with pale blue silk. Each corner of the front had a small embroidered garland tied With a true lover's knot, also in pole blue. Frenchwomen have taken up the knitting and crocheting of thread loco for the trimming of underwear. It is tedious work, but that sort of lace wears a long time and washes beautifully^ There are many pretty patterns, one of which, a cro- clutod variety, is illustrated. JUDIC CHOLLET. are Seen, but tftd plafn doimftti shape has an antiquated look now, and the wings ate oustoinaf ily So foil as to give 1 the fashionable cape effect. Where the short capo Is not considered sufficiently dignified tot an elderly woman, the fronts are often lengthened into long plain tabs that reach half way down the skirt or are arranged In full points of the same length. The illustration shows a half length tight coat made of iron gray sicillenne, It is cut with a flaring basque, the fullness of which IB increased by plaits laid at the back of the waist. Bach Beam of the basque is covered with jet galloon, and the middle seam of the back of the bodice is likewise covered, The gigot sleeves are trimmed with bands of jet. A flounce of wide black lace extends over the shoulders, and a flaring collar edged with jet surrounds tho neck, at the back of which is placed a large bow of black moire and satin ribbon. JUDIO CnotLET. VERY UGLY, BUT NEW. The Fan Skirt Is the Latent ITfuhJan Novelty From Paris. It is astonishing how the terms in tho vocabulary of fashion change in meaning in tho course of time. A few years ago, for instance, an inquiry for dimity—a fascinatingly old fashioned name It is—produced from the dealer's shelves a thick, stiff, highly glazed fabric, with a twill, when it produced anything at all, which was eeldom. This material was used for furniture slips and was of most uninteresting aspect. Today tho word dimity means a variety of sheer cotton dress stuffs, White and colored, often sprinkled with tiny bouquets or delicately striped and figured. Duck is another thing the signification of which has become modified. Formerly It was a plain heavy goods used for men's hot weather suits and quite destitute of any pretenses to frivolity. At present duck is not only striped and variously A-DIMITT GOWN. spotted with color, but comes in various shades of blue, red, green and lilgc in solid color, besides tho damask effects in plain white, which are its latest development. In the way of novelties there are other things besides damasked duck, however. Parisian women are appearing in what they call a fan skirt. In narrow goods like silk it consists of nine breadths, the front and bock edges of which ore cut slightly convex. It iti very ugly, but new... There is nothing fresh in sleeves and bodices. It would indeed be difficult to think of anything in either which has not already appeared with variations, with the exception of the threatened plain tight sleeve which has not yet suggested itself practically. All the effects to bo produced by ruffles, puffs and collars'have been given us over and over, and we have been able to make a'choice, among an exceptionally large number of equally fashionable styles. Tho gown illustrated is of figured dimity, tho skirt being trimmed with three ribbon ruchings. The round full bodice is shirred around tho shoulders to form a pointed yoke, over which falls a wide collar. Tho elbow sleeves consist of a large puff terminated by a double ruffle. The waist IB encircled by a white satin sash. JUDIQ CnOLLET. Get Up." ttem't expect your ho«e to hutty until vou have done yottr part.

Ti BEST ARE NONE 100 BUJ1MEB WALKING COSTUME, •round tho wrist. Those sleeves wera graceful and extremely becoming to the hand, and when made of transparent material to the arm also. But, although the 1880 costume has como into fashlota again, tho corresponding etiquette finds no place in the modern code of manners. Then if a woman appeared on the street with a man ho invariably gave her his arm, a custom which has now so fallen out of use that it seems ridiculous.; also a wife always entered'a ballroom or other place of public assemblage on her husband's arm, but in these days a woman who did not as a matter of course leave her escort to bring up tho rear on all such occasions would bo laughed at, and so would he. As for bicycling and tennis playing, they go on quite as actively as if the Victorian fashions had never reappeared, although tho traditions of these modes ore contrary to all such vigorous amusements. An illustration is given of a costume of bolgo drap d'oto and white ombroidured voilo. Tho skirt is trimmed with a /loimeo of tho latter, which is set almost Its width above the horn und headed by a black sutln fold. Tho full round bodico Is of Mock sutln, confined ut tho waist by a white belt. Tho bolgo flgaro jacket is in ouo piece and Is linod witli wiilto.
