What the Gay World of Fashion is Wearing—The Very Latest Styles, BICYCLING! COSTUMES. Something; New, Neat, Bandtome and Safe For Ladles. The woman bicyclist is now so ubiquitous and so respectfully recognized by the publlc'thnt the subject of her attlro holds quite as important a place In fashion perl ocllcals as does that of other varieties of costume Bloomers and divided skirts are rapidly gaining in favor In America, although they are not accepted with the wholesale enthusiasm that Paris accorded them, nor are they made go fancifully, nor of colors so conspicuous as French taste demands. A late model, not yet copied In the United States, is of light gray cloth. The trousers, which end just DIOTCtlNG CBBSB. below the knee, are accordion plaited, the • lower edge being gathered in a close band. Black silk stockings and gray shoes, with .buckles, complete the lower part of this startling toilet, while a gray figaro, a pink shirt and a black tlo clothe the upper woman. It is a question, however, -if bright color and bizarre style are any more* appropriate in the costume of the bicyclist than in that of the horseback A well known physician of Brooklyn, a woman highly esteemed both professionally and personally, has a word to say on the subject of bicycling (or women. She considers the exercise beneficial, when taken in moderation, and frequently roc. ommendi It to her patient*, but finds that many women object to riding, not on moral grounds nor because of Its growing association with trousers as an article of feminine , apparel, but because they consider the back view of a lady perched on a Wheel awkward and undignified. The narrow 'saddle causes the fold of the rider's lower garment, whether it be skirt or trousers, to fall ungracefully, and this is held by a certain proportion of women as sufficient reason for refusing to ride. The doctor suggests that this objection maybe done away with by the adaption of a cutaway coat as part of tbo rider's costume, the back of the coat- being made long 'enough to fall over and conceal the saddle, but to just clear the rear wheel. If a coat isfbnnd to be too warm or otherwise undesirable, a peplum may be worn instead, short In front, where It fastens, and gradually increasing to the required length at , the back. ..... .-,, „.,._, Jngio OHOUK. WINTER FASHIONS. Velvet Bodlom With Glace 811k BUrts—8*- ' turn of the Circular. : The fashion of wearing a bodice different from the skirt shows no diminution in favor, in splto of its long continuation. Tbo latest thing is to have a glace silk skirt and a velvet oorsago. A novel fashion of making the skirt;is to have it draped like a bow at the waist in the back. The bodloe is often plainly fitted behind, but plaited or gathered In front. A groat dpal ef rich embroidery is worn this season, 'either in applique or.worked upon the body of tbo goods Itself. Beaded and metallic effects increase Its splendor as well as Its expense. It would soora that this season will mark tho crisis of the period of brilliance and elaboration. A revulsion is bound to take place In due time, of course, and everybody will then dress In black or mode colon on the plea of quiet elegance. Everything is acceptable for millinery use at present, not only ribbon, flowers and feathers, but passementerie, jewelry, ixnro WRAP. real law, fur—anyth|ag that eon bo mado •malt enough to go ou a hut or bonnet may be employed.

Steel is the correct trimming for bats and bonnets, used either instead of jet or with it, and fur appears to be indispensable as well. An odd ornament Just coming into favor consists of wings out out of astrakhan fur and maintained In shape by means of wire. Lace wings wero curious enough, but as compared with those of fur the lace had at least some suggestion of aerial lightness. There are lace stitches not unlike the wings of dragon files, but the idea of locomotion by flight is ludicrously inconsistent with that of fur clad animals, gome of the newest of the quill and ostrich feathers for hat and bonnet trimmings ore propped up with all sorts of irrelevant additions of jet and steel. Occasionally the feathers are embroidered all round With a tracery of steel laid on BLACK BAT. tho edge and are so transformed that tho original wearers would never recognise their own plumes. There are also now bonnets which are masses of bright metallic glinting, a union of steel, gold, sliver, with jet. Astrakhan Is tbo favorite fur for hat trimmings, as sable is fog bonnets. Many of tbo now bats ore in ' long haired silk baaver, and these are, almost without exception, trimmed with black. Velvet dahlias, double or single, are the newest flowers. They are in oil the natural colors and a few others never seen before. Several of the now hats are In two shades of blue, sapphire or navy, combined With periwinkle or cornflower. Bright mauve and pink Is the latest millinery combination of •colors and sooms to be a favorite one with Parisian artists. Borne of the prettiest evening bonnet* consist of merely a fillet of jet, paste or metal, a skillfully arranged twist of velvet, a little bunch of flowers resting on the bair and eomo sort of an erect ornament. Tho hat shown In tho sketch Is of black silk beaver. It is trimmed with a cluster of black ostrich plumes, while a tortade of old rose mlrolr velvet is placed under tbe benl brim. Junto OUOLLET. '" ~UoVckni'uY\VM Named. The way iu which tbo Into President Cornot was named after tho Persian poet Sadi, who is little read nowadays, is interesting and recalls a deal of Prouoh history. Sadi was the favorite poet of tho Freuuh revolutionists of the last century, aud the literature of the day is full of quotations from him. Damot's father of the directory was, like tho rest, a groat udmiror of Badi wid uoinod one of his HOIU after him. This sou woo tho late president's uuolo, uid tho uauio wusooutiimod iu the family.

A bonnet lately warn by a leader of fashion wns of almost the regulation Quaker shape, with a wide brim coming down ovor the ears and an ample crown. It made a concession to custom by lifting at the back to show tbe hair, but It was decidedly a new departure, and, according to present ideas, not becoming. Perhaps the old fashioned scoop bonnot is again on YOUNG 3IBI/8 BAT. Its way to tho front/ If so,;may some catastrophe interfere to prevent it from arriving, for never was there an article .of headgear so unbecoming and' so ngly. Colored beaver is worn again this winter and la trimmed with watered ribbon. Flat shapes are selected by preference, the brim to bo twisted and caught up, as individual fancy may dictate. Smooth colored felts are also shown in which tho brim has a wide beaver edge. Those wide bats have a great deal of trimming at tho back and under the brim. Among the lato Importations are buckles and fillets of tinted paste having an iridescent effect. Some of these fillets ore made In the Greek key pattern and are used as tho front of tho bonnet, theohoux, folds and ribbons forming tho rest of It being arranged at tho sides and book. Dahlias are tho flower of the hour, and every hat or bonnet worthy of tho name Is adorned with this flower, which is so artificial looking by nature that it Is a most natural looking production of art. Long ostrich plumes, so long tabooed, are now seen again, and It is the turn of small tips to bo relegated to obscurity. Curled eoq fonthors aro also a fashionable trimming. Ostrich and ooq boas are still worn, and, although tho formw are richer and more oxponslvo, tbo latter are *)<m becoming, as a rule. A protty idea for tbo hat of a decided brunette is a plaited bow of white crepe doohino placed under tho brim and allowed to fall upon tho hail-. The soft white fabric resting on black hair is very effective. Hats for young girls are simple, Tho one shown in the cut la ot ruby folt.

The employment of elaborate garniture In the way of cord passementerie Is increasing. This garniture Is made of heavy cord in father open arabesque patterns. tn some instances beads and jewels are introduced, in others it Is tnade entirely of cord. Pattern sections of this garniture are prepared for the fronts of sklrtu, tor panels, Inpels and wnist trimmings. Petticoats for street wear aro of the most elaborate (kaudijtlon.

On each side a band of jet passementerie extends upward from the bottom of tho skirt, another band curving downward from the waist, but not meeting the lower one.

Very smart and comfortable capes are made in silk velvot, plush, and even velveteen of tbe best sorts. They an short, reaching only to an inch or so. be- below the waist, and are bordered with a wide band of fur, usually dark in color. The linings are not so much hidden as usual with those capes, for they are worn well thrown back from the shoulders. When tho bodlco is in dark satin or brocade, with much elaborate addition of ivhlto satin as trimming, the pale, rich lining of the cape forms a very effective background. The. mode of fastening is by means of watered ribbons, which dross the todlce In front and tie at tho buck of the waist.. Other short capes are In biscuit or dove colored cloth, with protty silk linings and fur trimming, or a finish of ?laln rows of stitching round all the outlines. Tbe corners are ornamented with devices, generally geometrical, but out out CU>THCAPI. of similar cloth, laid on tbe cape and stitched round tbe edges with one row or more. One of these, in cloth of a lovely tone of silver gray, is lined with yellow silk, brocaded with flowers in white and gray, and has a trimming of blue fox. Evening capes and cloaks are made with linings of squirrel and collars of sable. Braiding Is in again, and many of the newest coats and capos aro elaborately braided with a thick, silky looking braid that gives tbo rich effect of raised embroidery, something like that seen in drosses. The pelisse is still a favorite outdoor garment with the smartly dressed contingent. It Is sometimes made of plusb, but more frequently of velvet brocade, corduroy or some fancy material of substaa- Our Lady Readers Will be amused and interested by Mary E.
