What the Gay World of Fashion is Wearing—The Very Latest Styles. BANDEAU' AND MONOCLE. Anomalies anil CnrlnsltlM of the Fickle Fashion Goddess. At what shall we hesitate in thoso days of anomaly? A certain authority devotes half a column of small type to a discussion of the effects of the revival of the /bandeau—that smoothly plastered arrangement of tho hnlr in which it is parted In the middle and brought down over the te«»plcs and cars in tho fashion of Evangclinc pictures—which it says is right at our doors, and in the next breath announces tho arrMxl of tho monocle, Was there ever such a combination F Conceive Evnngeline sporting a single eyeglass and holding it In position by contortions of the check and eyebrow I Sinco Turkish toweling has been brought out in lightweights and dainty MOIRE MANTLE, colors and sold by the yard It has been utilized for various purposes other than washcloths and bathrobes. The ornamental varieties are at present employed for loose dressing sacks made with bell sleeves and tied together with ribbons matching the pink, blue or yellow stripes of the material. These are cool and comfortable garments, well suited to tho season, and as they do not have 4o bo cither starched or ironed tho laundering is a simple process. It Is said that chatelaines are again coming into fashion, the natural consequence of the universal popularity of the belt. Ho doubt they will be worn by a great many'women of acknowledged good taste, but there is nevertheless always a suggestion of vulgarity about any article of clothing or personal ornament that rattles or jingles, a hint of the aboriginal savage who delights to decorate himself with itriugs of clattering beads and bits of clinking metal. Perhaps when humanity reaches the higher stages of evolution it will wear no jewelry whatever and will re• gard gems and metal work in the light in which it now considers paintings and statuary—as things of ' beauty not suitablo for purposes of bodily adornment. The latest development in wraps consists of two full capes of moire mounted on a yoke and bordered with jet. Tho lower cape has two long stole ends in front that reach almost to tho bottom of the skirt and are finished with jet fringe. Atorsode of moire fastened at the shoulders by rosettes outlnes tho yoke, and a bow of black satin ribbon with floating ends unites the torsade in front. JUDIC CHOLLET. THREE VERY FETCHING GOWNS.

LINENS ARE IN FORCE. AN UNMASCUUNB GOWN. It In of Serpent GroelT Serge and Velvet uuil In Extremely Hnudnome. Tho objections to a fashion of dress for women inoro nearly approaching tho mas- 'oullno stylo are mainly sentimental ones, and that is why they are so hard to overcome. A demurrer founded upon apparent' reason may bo logically proved to bo wrong, but to light a sentimental theory is like contending with tho wind. If tho persons who disapprove of trousers costumes for women possess that most uncommon of attributes—common sense—they will say honestly: "Wo acknowledge that the ordinary stylo of dross for women at presont Is inconvenient and bumpering in all ao- fo Look Cool In Half tbe Battle In Hot Weather. ( Fashions are not an inspiring theme In the heat of summer. Theoretically they are ulways equally important, but practically the interest In them diminishes during the time when clothing, except of the most primitive sort, seems a burden. There are women heroic enough to lace tightly and wear velvet and fur during the warm season, but their days are evil, if not few—evil days seldom do seem few in number—and the effect is not pleasing enough to make it worth the suffering. To look cool is half the battle in hot weather, and that requires thin, loose garments. Linens appear in force this season. A plain heavy weave Is shown in colors guaranteed fust, tan, blue of various shades, green, rose and red. This makes ideal blazer costumes alone or used as trimming for white linen duck. Cotton duck suits are seen in still greater variety of tints, block and navy blue, with hair stripes of white, being particularly neat. A thin lawn blouse may be worn under the blazer or a filing, bright colored vest, which is less cool, but smarter. With flowered dimity for house and country gowns and china or thin glace.silks or grenadine for more elaborate toilets the fashionable summer wardrobe may be amply furnished without the aid of airtight satins and dust stuffed wax doll.' If you Want a piece of painted tapestry, do not buy It until you have consulted some capable artist friend, and thus avoid the chance of burdening yourself with an anatomical anachronism that will make the well Informed person chuckle in his sleeve every time he sees it. Courtesy often compels him to listen in silence to the boostings of the possessor of some outrageous ploco of so called artistic work, and he is divided between a desire to bo appreciative of the thing shown him and his Inability to truthfully praise it. Speaking of painting, one of tho latest ideas is tho selling of the backs of hand mirrors, hair and clothes brushes and the handles of combs made of fine, white china. nil means strftfivate' It, bttt If she has nfflft let her learn mftMhery. dressmaking, half' dressing, something- that is available fof everyday use. She fo hot obliged to make it her profession If she docs learn it, and she Will bo amply repaid for the small outlay of tlrne and money by tho ability to assist herself and her particular friends. Nobody, man of woman, no matter how intellectual, should bo entirely helpless and ignorant as to handicrafts. There is nothing degrading in a practical knowledge of any trade, and in these days of fluctuating fortune such knowledge may on occasion, stand between a girl and destitution. So, if you care for your daughter's welfare, teach her a trade as well as accomplishments. A sketch is given of a young girl's gown of rose colored crepon trimmed with bands of white laco insertion. Tho skirt Is plain, but tho corsage IB crossed in front over a full plastron. The tight sleeves have a pufl to the elbow, and tho collar and belt aro covered with Insertion. Tho light brown straw hat is trimmed with rosa colored ostrich tips and ribbon. JUDIC CHOLLET. NEW ETON JACKETS. Btjrles to Salt All Tutes and For All Occasions. Bodices .differing from the skirt aw more worn than over. Silk lawn and muslin are all employed for these garments, and every degree of elaboration is seen,, from tho plain shirt waist to the complicated affair made of lace, moire and spangles. There aro styles to suit every occasion, but the prettiest bodices are uot necessarily tho most expensive. Blouses of ruffled lawn are often more becoming than thoso of richer materials. Some pleasing' ones are shown mode of soft silk or crape with owide collar, Garibaldi front and folded belt, but the yoke effect is usually employed and is accentuated by a trimming, of double or, even triple ruffles around the shoulders. Sometimes brctollcs extend from shoulder to waist back and front, tho bodice being full between them. The new Eton jackets are tighter and. longer than those of last season and show a tendency to close In front in either sin< LIKEN TRAVELING BAG.

Small detached Japanese heads have, been lately introduced for use In fancy work. Both men and women aro represented with long narrow eyes and real teeth and hair. The 1 heads are fastened to wooden pegs, which serve as onjeans of attaching them to thermometqrs*,*t>enwlpers, pincushions and similar articles for which they ore employed as a decoration. An illustration is given of a traveling bag of Flemish linen. It is embroidered with'black or rod crewels in a cross stitch pattern. The round ends of the bog ore keptln shape by circles of cardboard, over which the embroidered linen Is stretched. Plain linen forms tho lining and body of the bag, which is gathered on double draw- Ing strings. A leather handle is fastened to each side of the embroidered portion by which to carry the bog.

The nowspapersnre continually publishing jokes at tho expense of tho unmusical young woman or girl who persists In practicing upon tho piano and going through singing exercises. There is no more reason to find fault with tho latter custom than with any other sort of gymnastics, for even if a girl can never learn to sing proper vocal exorcises properly practiced strengthen th« throat and lungs and thereby improve tihe general health. But piano practice to oi.o who has no tasto for it Is utterly useless.

Among tho people waiting in the depot at the foot of Brush street two or throe evenings since was a citizen who expected his wife on on incoming train. He didn't toll anybody that he expected her, but his looks and actions gave him away. He skated up and down to see if the train was on time. Then he rushed out and engaged aback. Then he promenaded around and wiped his brow, and ho was impatiently watching tho clock when a sawed off, beetle browed man, who was evidently yearning to dash somebody's bright hopes to earth, slid up to him and cmeriod: ••--•=•< "Kxpoctin some one, eh?"
