What the Gay World of Fashion is Wearing—The Very Latest Stylesi :izn "FASHIONABLE Hats Will Bo I/aruc, Aonnets Small an* Bhouldnn Sloping. Many of WIG wide, capcllke Ince collars now shown are nmdo of feather edged braid wrought Into elaborate patterns with the needle. They arc flncr and more delicate than guipure, but lose a great part of their beauty when they are washed, as the loops of the braid lose their roundness and tiecome twisted and matted. Capes will no doubt be as popular next winter as they wore lust. Very attractive ones, Intended for traveling and other hard use, are shown In heavy serges, navy hlue or blnck, lined with tartan plaid silk of brilliant colors. These are forerunners THREE PRETTY GOWNS. The figure on the right represents a gown of twilled silk, of golden brown over green or biscuit, for a miss of sixteen. It to' trimmed with dark velvet. A flannel gown, black and tan striped, with white front and cherry colored velvet, is shown on the left. That in the center is made of colored chamhraya, with detachable guimp for cool evenings. with n very plain outfit, but liiir'washing wns far better done. The umfftfgaMnents of the Women of 75 or 100 spars o)#9 lasted half a lifetime, but the Tome g(W»ients under tho present laundry system would not last six months. When nont and pretty clothing, made of good muslin and carefully finished, can bo bought at sncfi a moderate price as I tie sold for at present, It would bo a silly woman who would refuse to wcnr it because it Is sewed by machine nnloss sho were a millionaire, Who could afford every luxury In keeping. And it would bo an equally silly woman who would sit stooping over hor poodle hours In succession making clothing destined to endure vary llttlo longer than the length of time consumed In its preparation. An illustration Is glvon of a tea gown made of croam moussellne delalno embroidered with light blue figures. It has a wat- teaii back and a princess front and IB trimmed with crenm lace. JUDIO CHOLLKX. MUSLIN GOWNS. They Are All Made Full and Are lavishly Trimmed. Striped muslins, ginghams and nain- sooks have appeared In wonderful profusion this season. Pink, blue lavender and black stripes of varying widths on a white ground ore seen everywhere, and a peculiar shade of sea green 1ms also lately boon brought out which, iu combination with white, looks refreshingly cool. Thin gowns ore all made very full and are lavishly trimmed, oven if It bo only with the samo goods. Ribbons and Inco ore much employed, however, and as an oxpensive THE LATEST COIFFURE. of the autumn styles, although it is hard to realize that a cool season will ever arrive while wo are in the midst of hot weather. Summer la so small a part of the year for many Americans, however, that it IB In a measure bound to make up in intensity what it lacks in length. Perrons living In the latitude of New York have only three months of summer at - most, with one month each of spring and fall. The rest of the year is winter, with • generous allowance of rain, snow, mud and fog. The inhabitants of more northerly states enjoy a still shorter season of muillns and shade hats and are to be excused if on discarding one winter's garments they then look anxiously about for some hint of the ensuing winter's fash- Ions. It is safe to predict that hats will be large, bonnets small and shoulders sloping. Skirts will probably be somewhat eoanter, since they have begun to be draped and doubled. Probably the continuous heat has had a great deal to do with the fact that this Bummer has been prolific in thin street gowns. Dimities and lawns, but lately kept entirely for bouse and carriage wear, are seen everywhere on the streets, and women more heavily clothed look hot and uncomfortable in contrast. It is to be loared that this freak of fashion will not hold over until another year, for her rational fancies are seldom enduring. Do not buy anything that is expected to do long service of the blue shades, for the color Is too trying to have anything except a transitory vogue. As soon as the nov- • dty wears off it is doomed to disfavor and neglect. JUDIO CIIOLLET. SUMMER HOMES. Where City People of moderate Means Find ' Them. Since the decrease of farming industries In New -England many of the deserted farmhouses la retired regions have .been bought by city people of moderate means for summer homes. Those houses usually lie at a distance from the railroad and are devoid of any pretenses to smartness; hence they may be obtained at a nominal price and answer for purposes of summer retirement very well oven to persons ao- 'eustomed to the modern conveniences of city life. To pass a winter in one of them would be a different story, but during the warm weather the out of door life is the mnln thing, and in a quiet country spot the house Is little more than a place in which to cat and sleep. The buying of one of these houses is a Hoheme eagerly entered into by many self supporting young women, who, OB teachers or artists, lead, a confined life In the winter, uud especially iieod teat and free- completely independent, and when the season is over they pack their Japanese draperies and jars to 'take back to tho city and lock up their house with its scant deal furniture to wait for another year. Tho sketch shows a gown of brown checked wool trimmed with old rose velvet and cluny Insertion. The plain skirt is trimmed with a velvet rucho. The round corsago is gathered at the waist and has a yoke and bretclles of guipure. The tight sleeves havo a guipure trimmed puff above the elbow, and velvet ribbon forms a belt with long ends. JUDIC CIIOLLET. I ing friends, but thero is i r practical side to tho matter that fastidious girls think twice before turning their reception and sitting room into a kitchen. A woman who has a distaste for grease in the wrong place hinted at this Inconvenience to her college hostess with whom she was on intimate terms without in tho least desiring to belittle the social gathering that had been hold in her honor. But the collegian replied that as she usually wort half length sleeves—she has very LAPSES OF TACT. flaying the Right Things »t the Wrong liine. Wo havo all no doubt experienced several of those dreadful moments when our social good angel deserts us and leaves us to say whatever inopportune thing oomes into- our hoods to our after surprise and shame. This is a recognized condition of things. Witness tho popularity of those painful jokes introduced under the title of "Things Better Left Unsaid." Tho spirit of perversity seems sometimes to seize upon one's tongue, and ono listens aghast while it proceeds quite Independently to commit one in the most appalling manner. A Spanish proverb runs to the effect that it Is ill talking of ropes in the house of a man who was hanged, but how is it possible to resist tho Intolerable fascination of tbo subject of ropes in such a residence? No wonder that tho people of the middle ages believed that his satanio majesty personally attended the stops of human being* and got them into trouble through no fault of their own whenever he could manage it, for certainly a demon of contrariety often seems to guide our actions and iplluenco them adversely against our particular wish and will. It operates oven when we are quite unconscious of it. For example, how prone everybody is to loudly condemn some par- All the fuel yon, bum.

Every now and then some writer on tho subject of the wardrobe comes out with, tho discouraging statement that no woman of refinement will wear undergarment* not made by bund. This would seem to bo rather a broad generalization, arguing that only women of great wealth deserve to bo considered refined, for humlmudo clothes cost a small fortune and therefore demand special ware In tho laundry. There are millions of well dressed and well bred women who wear muchlno sowed underclothing because thoy cannot afford the outlay for handmade garments and can still less afford to keep a servant especially to do (Ino washing. Delicate clothing sent to tho best of laundries comes buck eaten to boles by chemicals and torn by careless MUSLIN GOWN. variety of lace is not required ovory pretty gown may be produced at slight cost, at least for tho materials. Of course tho dressmaker's bill is large whether sho does her work well or ill. It Is a good plan for everybody to havo at least a little knowledge of dressmaking, enough to allow of tho venture of making thin summer gowns at home, even if more expensive goods are put into professional hands. To pay $15 for the making up of materials that cost loss than $0 scorns scarcely a reasonable outlay when tho purse is only moderately supplied. Tho home dressmaker will find that skirt aud sleeve patterns are more to be relied upon than corsago patterns unless she has the latter cut specially to measure. If sho has, not and doubts hor ability to, adapt ono selected from tho gonoral catalogue, she mny make tho skirt and havo a regular dressmaker cut and fit tho bodice, which sho herself can afterword trim to match tho skirt. If it is intended that much dressmaking shall bo done at homo, tho easiest way is to go to a good tailor and havo u pattern cut to measure. This will givo a correct foundation upon which to construct a variety of gowns both for street and evening wear. It should be borne in mind that, next to a good pattern, a hot flatlron is tho dross- maker's best, aid to tho achievement of a workmanlike result. Seams, horns, facings and buttonholes should bo conscientiously pressed as soon as thoy arc finished—not allowed to wait until tho garment is all completed. This advice has more particular reference to heavy goods, although muslins will look tho better for such treat men t. A picture is given of a'groon muslin gown trlimuod with applications of butter colored guipure. It bus u round skirt and full, round bodioo gathered In at tbe throat and waist.
