What the Gkty Wdrld of Fashion is Wearing—The Very Latest Styles. SHE WEARS A DOG COLLAR. Vile French Girl Liken It, but Miss America Prefers tv Necklace. Tho vrldo liberty which prevails In fashions this yeifl. 1 sccifts to havo resulted in upsetting tho goncrnlly accepted theories In regard to summer nml winter fabrics. Thick and thin goods arc combined in tho Borne costume, while wvet, fur and heavy Bilk are used for gowns Intended for warm Weather wear. It would bs difficult to guess what tho next new development will be, for all possible ground seems to bo completely covered already. Perhaps when the present riot of color and varying form has reached a climax thcro will bo a revulsion of feeling and a return to mode shades and the slim severity of skirts, in which we cannot stoop to pick anything up, and sleeves that will not allow c.ny bending of tho arm. It did not take a great deal of cloth to make gowns in that fashion, and two such might bo made out of one of the present style. Reception and ball dresses are less interesting topics now than they were a few months ago and will bo a few months ' BILK AND VELVET EVENING GOWN, hence. Not many novelties in that line are displayed as yet, designers preferring to save their ideas until tho arrival of the season when there is a large demand for them. Several pretty arrangements of lace, flowers und passementerie are shown for the decollete bodice, and sleeves or -Bomo sort of drapery over the top of the «rm Is always seen. It may bo only tho thin bertha that surrounds tho upper edge of tho corsage, or perhaps separate lace epaulets or wide bretolles, but in no case is n plain, narrow strap deemed sufficient. There is a fancy in Paris for wearing a Wide velvet dog collar with a low cut bodice, tho collar, often a wrinkled one, closing under a velvet chou or some sort of decorative buckle. This particular idea does not seem to have met with the approval of American women, who prefer a necklace, if they wear any ornament at all «bout the throat. The sketch given shows an evening ..gown of white peau de sole, white embroidered net and coral pink velvet. Tho 'body of tho skirt Is of pcau de sole, tho .'lower part being plainly covered with net, the upper edge of which is out in largo points and outlined with a band of sablo .fur. The pointed corsage is of velvet crossed over tho bust, and wide bretellcs of peau do •sole covered with net and bordered with fur fall over tho shoulders. The coral velvet •dog collar is secured by a jeweled buckle. JUDIC CHOLLET. FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE. FOB A FAMILY OF GIRLS. The baby's dress is of organdie and lace. Her sister with the hoop has a blue serge frock with russet red sash and epaulets. The girl at the left lias'a flocked cotton crepon frock, and her elder sister wears a tan skirt and jacket of mordore brown cloth. The eldest sister wears a reddish brown china silk with chrysanthemum colored figures on it. over embroideries that havo been so popular for tho lust few years. White nun's veiling and china silk are also employed, and both are said to wash as well as cambric. Tho close Dutch caps so long worn havo given way generally to sunbonnets. .An illustration is given of a child's coat of fine white woolen stuff. It is shirred back and front to form a yoke and has a plain capo trimmed with two white ribbon ruohiugs. Tho cuffs of the full sleeves are edged with tffe same decoration, and the bonnet is similarly trimmed. JUDIC CHOLLET. A BOOK FOR EACH GOWN. \Judlc Chollet's Hint to the Girl Who Would Create a Sensation. A certain publishing firm has taken to idvising its women customers to buj' books for summer reading according to their bindings, these to bo chosen with an eye to the gown which is to bo worn during the process of perusal. This idea is good as far as it goes, but it suggests something better—in itself it is too simple a scheme to satisfy an intellectual woman. A. more thoughtful plan is to match the title of tho volume with tho costume, which will give scope to ingenuity and add a unique charm to tho indulgence of literary taste which could never be enjoyed if one looked only to the blue, red. or gray Jinen of book covers. The real color of a book is often decided by its name, and it is' that which should bo selected in harmony with the wardrobe, since tho bind- of Paris that a Philadelphia chemist has invented a series of essences, or rather gastronomic perfumes, with which we may BO scent and idealize a slico of plain bread as to fancy while eating it that wo are dining on roast pheasant, pate do foio gras, partridge or other substantial delicacy. Tho persons to whom this inven- Eoine New Thing* For tho Children ol America to Wear. Fashions for children do not change BO rapidly nor BO completely as those for grown persons. Freedom of movement and health always enter into plans for tho construction of garments for little people, which are therefore restricted in their varieties in a way to which grownup styles, not hampered by such considerations, are not liable. 1 Little English girls still wear the conventional plain frock of holland or cashmere, •with a full skirt and bodice gathered into a uniting bolt and short sleeves, all tho year round, that leave their poor little arms to bo roughened or turned bluo by cold or tanned by tho summer sun—when there is any. This is mentioned only as an extreme example of the Blow change of children's fashions and IB not by any means recommended as a pattern to be followed DINNER GOWK SLEEVES, Ion would bo of tho most benefit are those who habitually live upon bread and would lereforo bo glad to break tho monotony f tho diet by at least a suggestion of >methlng richer, oven though the suggcs- on hod no more solid a basis than did the east of tho Barmecide. But tho essences seem to be almost as expansive as tho gen- ino articles of food, and few of us like to ay for pretense when we can havo reality or the same amount of money. There seems to bo a tendency toward making decollete gowns high over tho boulder again, instead of cutting them tralght across and leaving tho curve of he ehoulder uncovered in the style BO much in vogue last winter. Not that tho otter fashion has disappeared, but tho ither is reappearing. A sketch is given of two designs for the leoves of dinner gowns. Each reaches inly .to the elbow. Tho first is of Bilk rimmed with embroidery and pearls and Inlsbed with a loose cuff. The second' is of velvet, with an application of guipure, and it left open on the outside to show tho JBDIO COOLUBT. CHINA BILK GOWN. ing IB proved to bo uncharacteristic by tho fact that it frequently varies in different editions of tho sumo work, while tho title remains the same. I For tho benefit of women to whom this is a new suggestion a few hints ore submitted, which, it is hoped, will servo to turn their attention in tho right direction and stimulate them to moro complex individual combinations. I "Point Lace and Diamonds" may bo lead to fill up tho tedious minutes that intervene between tho conclusion of dross ng for a reception and tho arrival of tho carriage which is to take one there. 'Heartsease and Buo" is an admirable ad- unct to a half mourning costume. "Tho Doming Race" should be read only while wearing the colors of one's favorite upon ;ho turf. "Letters From Hell," which is Far loss dreadful than it sounds, would go well with » red and black gown. "Water Babies" appropriately accompanies tho bathing suit, while with a yachting dross nothing could bo butter than-"Ships That Pass In tho Night." , Many other books will commend them selves to women preparing u summer ward robe as useful under various clroum stances. Tho schema Is un excellent one, providing, us It doos, for external, if nol internal, consistency, that brightest and most becoming jewel in tho ouliro list of gems. A sketch is,giyonof a young girl's gown of bluo and white china Bilk. It has a double Bkirt slightly draped on tho light sido and a round bodico trimmed with whlto, gllk muslin rufllos to bliuulato a yoke Tho ballouu puff of tho sloovo is confined in tho middle by a bund of whlto ribbon and u whlto ribbon belt surrounds tli» wulst.

JUDIO CHOLLET. THE FOE OF A CHILL. Merer Turn Your Back on Your Lamb's Wool Wrapper Even In Summer. To recommend lamb's wool for hot weather wear inay at first seem like non- senso. It certainly is not a fabric suited for general summer use. But nevertheless the same lamb's wool wrapper that was so comfortable a garment in winter will bo found a convenience in tho warm months also and ought never to be laid away/with the other flannel clothes: that nre/pnck<rf -ip in camphor in the spring. For tho siesta after a bath or any sort of CREAM FLANNEL WKAPPEK. violent exercise it is far better than a dressing gown of cotton or silk material. The body is then in a relaxed condition, which renders it peculiarly susceptible to even a Blight chill, and the open windows that' allow the entrance of delightfully cool breezes will also admit rheumatism and neuralgia, against which wool IB the surest armor. A woman whose circulation is equable and whose movements are constitutionally Blow runs no danger of becoming overheated and may safely wear linen and muslin at all times, as she is not open to atmospheric influences, but her more sensitive sister, whose skin flushes and pales With slight cause, who exercises actively and feela 'the consequent reaction and whose nerves are easily affected, must guard against sudden changes of temperature if she wishes to keep thoroughly well, and wool is the best protection she can have. If'pure wool underwear-is*too irritating, a mixture of silk and wool, may be worn, which is smoother and almost as good a nonconductor of heat. Plain silk . is better than cotton, and linen is the worst material that can bo worn next the skin, as it is of a cold and clammy nature, which' carries away the natural warmth of tho body and affords no stimulant In return; Flannel underwear, no matter how thin, should therefore bo kept ut hand during tho summer, and a flannel dressing gown as well, to be worn at discretion. A sketch Is given of a pretty wrapper made of cream flannel. The cuffs are bordered with a bios fold of yellow velvet, and a wide collar of the some material covers tho shoulders. The bock of tho gown is fitted, but the front is gathered and confined at the waist by a girdle of heavy cord. Velveteen may be employed instead of velvet.
