What the Gay World of Fashion ia Wearing—The Very Latest Styles. FASHIONABLE ATTIRE, Many Devices Employed to Induce Women to Give tip Plain Skirts, Some of tha now skirts ore very wide. Rottglily speaking, they measure about seven ynrda round the hem, but the cutting Is so exquisite that they sit beautifully and look no wider when an than an ordinary 4}£ yard skirt. They cling quite closely round the hips and have curves at the end of each seam to get in the fullness CHILDREN'S FASHIONS. without trace of clumsiness. Indeed the catting is a work of art, In its way, and inexplicable to any but the closely observant of snob matters, No doubt the uninitiated will wonder why such trouble should be taken to get In a lot of material and then to hide the fact that it is there, but that is just wherein the fashionable secret consists. These skirts are beautifully bung, graceful and are very full without obtruding the faot of their fullness on any but the appreciative observer. Many of .the now skirt trimmings are highly eccentric nnd prove that every possible device is being tried to induce women to abandon plain skirts and adopt those that are draped and trimmed. The double tikirt is now rarely seen, but a miniature edition of it takes the form of a full, all ' round basque, which, when on, appears to be a portion of the bodice. A black satin waistband finishes tbls at the top, whether, the gown be black or colored, and the addition of such.a basque renders a dress well suited- to wearing in the streets on warm and sunny afternoons. The skirt of ?the season is somo.times of a most aston- Ishing shape when spread out upon a flat ,«urfuco, but,when it is worn its peculiarities of out are invisible, only the fashionable effect being evident. The first figure in.the accompanying sketch wears a brown velveteen frock made with a plain, full skirt and round bodice gathered at the waist.

B« Wt>tn to Show the front Half. t"or some time past, as the hnlr has been Worn rather high, the Inclination has been to Wear the bonnet Welt forward. But news from Paris Is that the bonnet will be Worn sufficiently far back to show the arrangement of the front hair and also to tnako the things seem really a necessity. the shape which is most favored Is that known as the Dutch cap, Which fits tho head quite closely, after tho fashion of the Velvet and bead hats worn by tho pretty Dutch girls in sdtae pictures. Modernized, tho cap reaches to just above the ears, is quite flat on top and extends in the back to midway of the, head. It is made of felt, of velvet, of cloth and occasionally of moire. The prettiest aud most becoming ones are those made of velvet. The decoration usually stands high up and is placed on top of the little bonnet near the front. To carry out the idea of a Dutch cap there Is also shown in velvet and in glowing colors bunches of tulips that suggest their being precious in the eyes of the old time collector. Flowers now follow fashion, like bonnets and drosses. No prophetic spirit ever guides the flower grower bow to meet the A CLOTH GOWN. public taste, GO that sometimes quantities of certain cut flowers turn out to be most unsalable. This year roses were not nearly as much In demand for buttonholes as tho humble blue corncockle, which still seems to maintain its place. The hideous green carnation, tinted by-some process in which verdigris is used, is on sale, and there are actually buyers • who like to wear It. A rather novel design is shown in the model illustrated. It is of dahlia cloth and has a bell skirt and a round bodice, with a back gathered at the waist. The skirt has a line of narrow black gimp around the foot as Its solo trimming, but an immense, bow of wide black velvet ribbon is fastened at the waist in front, with two long fringed ends falling to the feet. An end of the ribbon is carried up each sidoof tho bodice to the cheat, tho edges being fastened down with gimp. The tight black velvet sleeves have a puff of dahlia velvet front shoulder to elbow. JUDIC CnoLLET. CHILDREN'S CLOTHING. Simply Blade Garment!) of Serge and Cheviot tue Most Satisfactory. Those who have plenty of money need little advice in regard to the selection of clothing for their boys. To get those that are becoming and fashionable is comparatively easy, and as long as the stock on hand may bo continually renewed without inconvenience there is no trouble. Tho woman with a small income must, however, find tho purchase of attire for her growing, active boy a serious responsibility. She would not on any account check his activities, or else ho becomes weak aud effeminate, but these activities, however profitable they may be to his body, are extremely try ing to ordinary clothing. There are many to sympathize with that mother who longed for the invention of a practicable leather suit for growing boys. But, alas, none has so fur been invented which ii within the means of tho average buyer. A suit should bo made, in the first place, of strong, good cloth.

BUtorjr of the Pocket Handkerchief—Ribbon Garniture—A Sn'rprlie Fan. A scientific writer now tells us that the ozone in the 'atmosphere, the element which is the great purifier, is mainly sup* plied from blooming flowers. Their presence in the bouse can no longer be objected to on the score of unwholesomeness. They are beneficial as well as beautiful. Some interesting experiments with the odors of flowers have been made, and it Is found that many species of microbes are easily destroyed by various odors. The NOVEL FAN. lavish purchase of flowers, especially in the winter, when the house is hermetically sealed and artificially warmed, may therefore be considered necessary rather than extravagant, and if the holder, of the purse, not np to the scientific times, objects to the florist's bill ho should" be told that it is to be reckoned, with the'plumb- er's, as part of the sanitary accounts. An interesting historical study on the pocket. handkerchief has appeared in a German magazine. It appears that mankind Is indebted to Italy for the introduction of that modest but indispensable accessory of civilisation. According to the writer, the use of the •pocket handkerchief was unknown in society until tha first half of the sixteenth century, and its use was long confined to princes and persons of great wealth. Slowly, but surely, bow : ever, the vulgarization of the pocket handkerchief has been accomplished, and today even the humblest is superior in one important respect to Petrarch and Laura, Dante and Beatrice, who, it is somewhat painful to think\ lived in a prebundker- cblef age. Plaited bodices still retain their prestige, but it is now considered the thing to vary them by placing ribbon bands covered with jet between the folds at intervals. These ribbons may be black, white or colored. Artificial Wings made of silk, gold and jet are the favorite millinery trimming of the hour. They come in immense variety and are very pretty. Paris, which devotes itself to tho invention of astonishing novelties, has just produced a fan which Is called "thesurprise/' It is apparently un ordinary folding fan of spangled velvet, but is so arranged that the sticks may be allowed to drop apart, as if the fan were hopelessly broken. : Juuio CHOLLET.

There are instances where the result is excellent; but, as a rule, the contrast is not artistic, there being nothing in common between yellowish browns and very brilliant pink. Capes and collars of ermine are shown among high class fur goods, but there seems to be great reluctance shown in adopting this fur, once so highly prized as to be the adjunct and symbol of royalty. One of the newest imported toques is of turquoise blue velvet trimmed with violets in tbo natural color — a most distressing combination of color. The collar and muff shown in the picture are of black velvet. The collar is edged and trimmed with beaver bands, which form motifs in the angles. The standing portion of the collar is very much rippled an'd has a wrinkled ribbon band about its base ornamented with choux and closed by a paste buckle. The muff is lined, with block satin, gathered in the tnidale and trimmed with a bow and long ends of ribbon held in place by a jot butterfly. JUDIC CHOLLET. DEATH OF BISMARCK.

All tbe family were hastily summoned to ber bedside. Count Herbert Bismarck arrived Thursday even- Ing and was present when bis mother passed away.
