What the Gay World of Fashion is Wearing—The Very Latest Styles, SILK BODICES. They A to Still Popular ntul Bid Fair to Be So For n tons Time. Waists ol sopnrnte material still hold their place, and there are modifications that show n tendency toward making skirts to them. Beforo the year closes \vo will •ee long basquea of fancy material worn with plain skirts. An advanced style sent out as a sort ot feeler in the fashionable world shows a fitted basque of brocade with a skirt about 10 Inches deep. This is smooth at tho front and sides and slightly full In the back, not neatly as much so, however, as some of tho blazer skirts have been. Ths fronts are out away from thf, SILK BODICE. waist line and filled In with plain mate, rial, forming a vest with small pockets. There are very wide roverd ot tho brocade edged with tho plain goods.

The round silk bodice is as great a favorite as over and will probalby continue to be In fashion for some time to come, at it is a convenient garment In every respect. In a dark color, simply made, it may be used for street and general wear, While in a light tint, with the Addition of • little lace and ribbon, it is suitable foi the theater. Now that contrasting sleeves •re admissible tho best parts of an old silk gown may bs made over into a bodice, moire being employed for sleeves and collar or revers. A black silk bodice is extremely useful, as it may bo worn with any skirt and on any occasion and docs not easily become defaced. Narrow ruffles or plaitings will serve to keep it from look- Ing too somber, and a brood collar oi white or ecru lace, such as is now in vogue, will smarten It for particular occasions. The sketch shows a full round bodice of straw colored silk trimmed with van dykes of Irish guipure, which form a col lor and corselet. The full elbow sleeve* are gathered into guipure cuffs.

The smallest quadruped that was once a dainty, but is only remembered in Roman tradition, is the dormouse. There are those who have tried the bat and found it tastes like a house mouse, only mcusior.—liondon Spectator. FOR THE COMPLEXION. An Old Remedy That Is Far Better Than Anything New. • . The celebrated Ninon de 1'Enolos retained, so history avers, her youthful appearance until extreme old ago. She was 80 years old when she died and looked 18. This is hardly to be credited as strict truth, but at the same time doubtless there was some remarkable retention of the charms of youth. The following recipe is for a complexion lotion which, while incapable of performing miracles of rejuvenation, is said to give firmness to the skin and help to keep it free from blemishes, pimples, sunburn and similar disfigurements. Soak a little soap plant (to be hod of any chemist) in two pints of rosewater or elderflower water, whichever you prefer, and to this add some cucumber juice pre- sometimes combined with a floral pattern. Half length capes of oloth, ornamented with braid, are to be worn this fall and VARIOUS FANCIES. The French Bay There Are Several Age! and Kinds of Wenuty. For full dress occasions low cut slippers, with the Louis Quinzo hool, embroidered with pearls or ornamented simply with a buckle, are preferred at present. A groat deal has been said about black hosiery going out of fashion, but it. seems to hold its own yet.and is still considered tho correct stylo unless tho hosiery matches the gown in color. The French say there arc several "ages" as well as kinds of beauty—the beauty oi mere youthfulness, which they call "la beaute du diable;" also a beauty of "ugliness," of "old ago,'' and of "thinness," called "la beaute du singe." Froderika Bremer, the Swedish novelist, had tho beauty of "plainness." She was so very plain of face that her expression of trust- fulueg*, as though appealing to you to find Women desirous of keeping up with the latest developments in gowns and hnlr- fltesslng. For the benefit of those, who Adopt a stylo because it is tho fashion and Who are always hungry for novelties, a sketch la given of tho newest Paris mode of coiffure. The hnlr is necessarily short and closely curled aurt waved around the face and neck, but left smooth over the crown. Tlie decorations consist of an 1m- iuciiR0 bow of ribbon, from tho center of which rises n cluster of ostrich tips. JUDIC GIIOLLET.

DFIESS'FOR ELDERLY V/OMAN. Blio Is Free to Deck Herself With Bright Colors. In DO direction has fashion been more completely revolutionized during thn last decade or so than in tho dress of middle aged and elderly women. Some years ago it was considered almost fast for a woman over 50 to wear any brighter wolor than gray or innuvo, and her usual attire consisted of black. For a great occasion, such as the wedding of a son or daughter or other near relative, a light gray or mauve gowu was purchased, and this took a long WALKING COBTUMU, some other qualities In her than mere ''looks," ehono out with u perfect radiance that ennobled lior fucu and drew friends to her, because uho hud no other beauty. But Miss Bremor took pleasure In her well kept bands, of whloh she used to say, "Even bunds have their moments of charm."

Use daily. The emulsion looks like smooth, thin cream. Its porfumo resembles vanilla. It may be used instead of soap. It cleanses tho face quite as well and never makes the skin red., as soap will often do. The cost of tho lotion is insignificant, which is another recommendation. Among the articles of luxury which are being sold at a reduction nowadays may bo reckoned silk hosiery. Some astonishing bargains are to bo obtained in these goods, both in black and color*. The woman who wears a medium size in everything Is tho one who mainly profits by sales of shoes, stockings, gloves and garments. Tho unusually stout or sluuder person may search all day for something to fit her and pay the highest price for It when it Is found, while her sister of average proportions is suited In half an hour at half tho cost for the same quality. Tho illustration shows a petticoat of mauve and green striped silk. It is trimmed with two flounces of cream lace, the upper one arranged in points and headed by tt puffing of muuvo moussollno de sole. Bach point Is marked by a bow of muuvo ribbon. JUDIC CUOLLET.

They close under a large bow of ribbon at the throat, and the back of tho nook Is similarly ornamented with a bow and long ends. Satin is the favored material for wedding gowns just now. • Bodices made of accordion plaited black mousseline de sole are in great vogue at present and are worn with the plain black silk or satin skirt which is so generally useful an item of the modern wardrobe. The round bodice shows no indications as yet of declining in popularity. In the majority of the now models the basque is entirely omitted, and the belt is more or less in evidence, emphasized by a buckle or largo bow. The illustration shows a beautiful gown of block and white striped silk. On cither side of the front breadth of the plain round skirt is inserted a pointed piece of deep ecru lace. The blouse corsage has a full chemisette yoke of cream moussoline de sole, bordered with ecru lace, which also forms epaulets. The full silk elbow sleeves are irregularly draped.

JET CAPOTE. time In wearing out, being only produced upon special occasions after the one for whloh it had been prepared. Such colors as bluo, pink, yellow and white were completely left out of the category of possibilities for the elderly woman. Since then a total change has been compassed by slow degrees, and at the present moment the woman who has seen half a century is free to deck herself with any colors that she may elect. Nor is it in dress alone that the change hat been so great. Our grandmothers used to begin to wear caps at tho age of 45, whereas in these days an elderly woman no more thinks of wearing a cop than does her granddaughter. A woman who bos tho good fortune to possess silver gray or white hair is wise enough to appreciate its-beauty and booomlngoess and to arrange it in such away as to make the most of it. She chooses small, close bonnets that conceal tho hair as little as possible and selects colors calculated to set it off to the greatest advantage. Block and gray velvet, jot and steel cannot be improved upon as millinery materials in such a cose, always with the additions of a touch of some decided oolor like bluo, rose or magenta, Gray and golden brown is also often a becoming combination and has tho merit of not being common. An illustration is given of a small jet bonnet suitable for a middle aged woman. Tho jet frame is trimmed in front with two jet wlnge and a jet aigrct, held in placo by a ohou of pale bluo velvet. The short strings are of block velvet. JUDIC CHOLLET. THE HAIR. Imagine France* Witlard In Straight Bang* or George Eliot In Vrizzeit. It would bo quite worth while'.for the average young woman who desires to present on attractive appearance to go to some high class hairdresser and obtain directions for doing her hair, or at.least a model from which to work. It would save bora great deal of anxiety and trouble unless indeed she be one of that variable sort that is satisfied with nothing save for a very short time. Every head and faoo bas some eminently suitable style, and this should bo followed, to u certain extent at least, during the wearer's entire lifetime. Marie Antoinette, Martha Washington and other notable woniuu would scarcely seem like themselves with their balr arranged In tho frivolous fashion that many women of the day affect. Imagine Frances Willord with her hair in a straight bang or George Eliot in a false front and frizzes. Such a suggestion would bo ridiculous in tho extreme. It IB only usagu that makes us tolerate this absurd practice of changing tho stylo of dressing tho hulr eo frequently.
