What the Gay World of Fashion is Wearing—The Very Latest Styles, BOSTON'S LATEST FAD. 9he dlrl of Culture Is Now Raiding Clgai Stores For Tobacco Ribbons. The idea of making cushion covers, table covers and other decorative objects (Jut ol eignr ribbons seems to have taken an on•during hold on the Boston fancy.. The latest advices from there report that tobacco dealers are besieged by requests foi the ribbons, of which they have, of course, • continual supply. At first the desired articles wore given away in hnndfuls, but the demand soon became so great that the .ribbons assumed the importance of mer- FANCY WOKKBAG. •handise, and an appreciable revenue Is do- rived from them. Yellow is naturally the prevailing color of the objects into which they arc mode up, but occasionally red and even blue ribbons may be secured by the fortunate fancy worker. Large vases of plain Japanese pottery mre popular decorations at present. They come In several shapes and various colors, Tellow and blue being those most often ioen. They are pretty and effective In themselves, but as far as holding flowers goes they are a delusion, for they have a crackled glazing, through which water leaks away rapidly. This is bad for flowers, bod for whatever the vase rests upon •and extremely bad for the vase itself, "which will soon become discolored by the ^process. A favorite way of marking handkerchiefs is to write the name or initial by band in the corner, instead of having it •tamped In conventional letters, and then embroider over tho lines with flne silk. 1 This style of marking has tho merit of individuality in every case and always shows itself indubitably to bo hand work, something worth considering in these days of aachine manufacture. Parisian women are fond of making little decorative bags that seem to have no particular use except to keep somebody's lingers busy in their manufacture. A •ketch is given of a design for a shopping or work bag. The foundation is composed of a circle of cardboard covered with brick red satin. It is crossed by bauds of yellow ribbon tacked on with clusters of French knots in yellow embroidery silk. The circle Is bent together to form the bottom of the bag, and the end spaces are filled with pieces of cardboard cut to fit and similarly covered. A lining of yellow satin extends beyond tho top and forms ! the bog proper, which is gathered on running •brings. It is decorated with yellow rib- Inn bows. For the onftroldery knots that fasten tho crossed ribbon bands gold beads may be substituted with good effect.

As a contrast to tho suggested fig leaf ostume, although it might be pinned in- o shape with thorns very nicely, a sketch s given of a Parisian design in rose geranium cropon. Tho skirt is trimmed with irlangles of guipure. The round bodice is raped on the right side of tho front and rimmed on the left with guipure. A arnlture of ribbon adorns the left side of lie gown.

It is to bo hoped that few mothers dress their children so that they are debarred from enjoying to the full the delights of delving and paddling, for tho :hlldlsh desire for those harmless pursuits s a paramount one, and a little summer salt water splashing hurts nothing about child except its clothes. * One mother has rather an Ingenious way of protecting her little girl's gowns. She tas made of brown Holland a straight skirt iwice as lung as tho child's dress skirt. Cop and bottom are each gathered into a land of tho right size to fit tho waist, a ilacket hole being left, of course.

Our judgment is enough better than hut of past times to tell us that a blank xpense of straw, however fine, Is less attractive to the eye than a view of the face t shelters. It has been many a day since he countenance was concealed by tho bead covering, and oven our biggest hats leave ho face to speak for itself.

It has boon a stock accusation against women for ages that they are "fond ol dress.'' Men have long advanced this fact as a sufficient reason why women should aot bo considered up to tho masculine stand' ard in any sort of work. Admitting that tho accusation of fondness for dross is ab- jolutoly true, what possible obstacle can a preference for becoming or unbecoming attire be to advance in any business, art or science for which a womun has any real ability? Men and women both have their pet vanities. Men uro proud of their muscular strength, and with reason, und women cheerfully admit their own inferiority in thnt respect. No doubt, if nature had provided them with b\'oad shoulders uu4 iron muscles, they, toe, would bo vain of such possessions. Instead she has given them delicate coloring and rounded contour**, and why is It not quite us pardonable for them to set off those udvantuguH by appropriate clothing us it Is for a muu to dl»- allty.

So, M men and Womon both llko becoming drosk.' why not nccopt It us ti general fact rather than n particular folly? The particular folly illustrated today is a bodice of black silk muslin and brown guipure. It Is lined with black surah and trimmed with black satin ribbon, which is mingled with the folds of the front and forms a belt with short bows and long cuds. JUDIC CHOLLET. TROUSERS FOR WOMEN. Convenient, llcnltlifnl nnd I^slit, but, Aloal Unbecoming, Sny» Jiulic Chollet. There Is a grout deal to bo said In favor of tho trousers cofifcumes for women proposed—and often carried—by dress reformers. Such attiro is convenient in all weather, healthful, light and simple. But there aft til so many things to be said against them. They are unbecoming except to a schoolgirl, they lack dignity, and they make a woman look like a very inferior kind of man. Masculine clothing emphasizes a man's good points—his broad chest, largo limbs and general muscular development—but it detracts from a woman's natural advantages—her graceful carriage, delicate form and general softness of outline, which arc best set off by flowing draperies that lend themselves to each movement. Turkish women, who exist only to be beautiful, and whose cos- VEUJTINE COSTUME. tume is one of the most artistic and becoming in tho world, wear trousers, but over them wear a long clinging skirt that trails upon tho floor. It is usually only women of the laboring classes in any of the countries so enthusiastically quoted by dross reformers who wear tho simple trousers costume. It is undoubtedly the dress par excellence for strictly utilitarian purposes, and the fashion if generally adopted would be a great relief to hardworking women. But if reformers expect to succeed in making it really fashionable they will probably find themselves very much out of their reckoning, for fashionable women are not 'inclined to adopt any extreme novelty in garments the only recommendations of which are comfort and convenience. By all means let women who wish or whoso business requires them to wear trousers do so. But all attempts to force tho custom upon women as a mass,-tilther by ridicule or moral coercion, will meet with failure. Tho days of sumptuary laws are past, and wo are all going to wear just what wo like if we can got it. A sketch is given of a race gown of beige yolutlno trimmed with velvet a shade darker and white guipure. Tho skirt and ovonklrt are bordered with a bias band of velvet. Tho corsage Is of velvet and is ornamented with shaped pieces of 'guipure. The-balloou sleeves extend only to the elbow. JUDIC CIIOLUST.
