Loop year, It appears, is duo to tho enterprise of tho canny Scotch losses. In tho year 1388 o statute was published by tho Scotch parliament ordaining that during the reign of "her ninist blcsslt irmjes- tlo Margaret" every maiden and lady of WEDDING GOWN. Mgh and low estate should hare liberty to cpeak to the man she liked. If ho refused to take her to be his wife, she should bare the privilege of Hiring him £100 or less, aooerdlng to bis estate, unless be could m4ke It appear that he was betrothed to another woman, In which case he would batree to refuse. After the death of Margaret the women of Scotland became clamorous for their privileges, and to appease them another act of parliament allowed tbe.pi to propose every fourth year. The old custom of throwing an onion after a bride is doubtless well known. It ha£ the same origin as the old Scotch custom of throwing a besom after a cow on it* way to market—to avert tho evil eye— and thus Insure luck. There are some things that a bride must remember. Her bodice must bo high in the nook, her sleeves reach quite to her wrj&ts, and her gown must fall in full, nnbfokon folds that show the richness of tho material, and there must bo very little suggestion of such frivolities as frills or rlnjons of any kind. The wedding gown illustrated is -of white satin, made in princess style, with »long train/ Tho right side of the skirt is ornamented with a knot of white moire and a piquet of orange flowers.

A satin ruching borders tho corsage, and the glgot sleeves ore draped by piquets of orange flowers. Juuic CIIOLLET. PHYSICAL EXERCISE. Atoid Tailor Made Gowns If Tour Carriage Is Not Erect.

Laced boots always fit more neatly than do buttoned ones, and it is rather surprising thnt tho latter have so leng eclipsed them in both fine and •coarse grades. There is an Increasing tendency toward half length sleeves. Many French models show them, not only for house toilets, but for out of door gowns, long gloves being of course worn in the latter oaso. Although the boopskirt failed to impose itself upon the feminine public, Its cousin, the haircloth petticoat, is more successful THE LATEST HAT. in gaining favor. These ascetic garments arc offered for Bale in tho fashionable shops and are admirably calculated to give the dress skirt the desired bell shape. Veils with heavy borders are still In style, but they ore sedulously avoided by women who not not wish to look as if thoy worn a beard. Tho mourning face veils, with.a crape cdgo, make tho wearer appear to havo tho lower part of her countenance swathed in a black bandage. Pinked frills ure no longer tho correct trimming for oven the simplest silk petticoat. The luflles must bo hemmed and well corded if tho fashion of narrow ruffles is adopted at all. The more elaborate petticoats havo wide ruffles, or plaitlngs, trimmed with ribbons and veiled with lace. In order for a godet skirt to llvo up to Its ideal, tho godetn must bo lined with stiffening from waist to hem. They will then stand out beautifully, but their pros- crvatlon demands that tho wearer remain continually on her feet. A Parisian milliner has composed a unique hut, of which a sketch is given.

All costly furs are to bo worn this winter, both tho short and long pile varieties. They will appear on gowns as woll as wraps, and capes and jackets entirely of fur will be fashionable. It is throwing money away to buy cheap fur, for It becomes shabby at once, and fashions change so rapidly that only very wealthy persons can afford to indulge in expensive furs. Therefore a fur season is rather awkward for the woman of moderate means who wishes to keep abreast of tho mode. Black accordion plaited mousseline de solo is the favorite garniture of the sea- sou. It veils entire bodices of black or colored bilk and is used in a variety of ways with jot, lace and ribbon, to form adjustable accessories that may be worn with any gown.
