THE WOMAN OF FASHION Has a Parasol •with Flower ana Ribbon to Match Her Gown. New Dre«se9 Worn In "Lady Barter"—No I,»ck of Variety In tho Choice of Spring Gowns—Foun- aatlon Skirt*. [COPYRIGHT, IE91.1 Parasols have sprung- into prominence in the shop windows; and tho early spring- sun even spies one here and there .upon the drive in the park. They have wakened into life and activity like mushrooms. A few hours ago they were almost unthought of as part of the season's necessary accompaniments. Now the windows are filled with them anc every one is either buying- or making one of these light, airy absurdities ' -which shall be, nevertheless, sufflcienl SHOES FOB EVENING WEAK. •to act as a protection from the mildness of April suns. Buying or making 1 ! So runs the text, for it is one of the easiest things in the world to produce a lace parasol of the style favored in the shop windows. All that is needed is some figured black net, a parasol frame and a little taste and ing-enuity. The prettiest and newest parasols for spring -use have no lining 1 . The net is gathered very full a£ the top and falls hence to the edge .in a deep flounce. The lace is secured to the sticks which hold it in place and a ribbon bow conceals the shirring at top. Around the edge there is a deep fall of lace from three to eight inches wide •which may, if fancy dictates, be caught tip at intervals with sprays of flowers, real or artificial. "White lace parasols are dotted here and there with buryhes of violets, or (•whatever flower t'-.anccs to be the favorite of the owner. A lively creation, seen at Riverside during the first .warm smile of the sun, was of white ' .net put on very full. From the top of the parasol hung low sprays of arbutus, :which were fastened in place so as to give a careless effect. The toque accompanying this was of white lace and arbutus sprays with pink silk pon-pons. Another parasol, ^.as yet held in reserve from public view, "~ is of black net with deep lace raffles. 'Bunches of lilacs decorate the top and - the inside. The parasol is small, and .is not designed to be closed. On calling 'expeditions it is left in tho carriage. At tome it is preserved in a case designed specially for this purpose. The long girdles have been modified for shopping and everyday expeditions unto deep belts which arc girdle shaped. .They are jicvrrow at back, but with a deep point in front extending several inches above and below the waist line. iVery stylish ones are of black leather trimmed with silver or s-eel. Still •more fashionable are the all tfold, or all steel ones. Heavily; gorgbous and : glistening are the cut silver ones which gleam and sparkle like ten thousand |T_ suns as tho wearer passes by. These belts, varying 1 as they do in style and material are suitable for wear •with all costumes. Pearl belts are seen upon evening dresses, cloth belts •trimmed with, nail heads or ^jewels" are a part of a street outfit and pas- sementerie is stitched upon the belts ol ?'

Since the long dress skirts became pofhilar it has been neee'ssai-y to make jthe lining of dress skirts quite ornamental, since each lift of the skirt left it plainly visible. At crossings, on ^Jrniddy walks and in passing downstairs, [the skirt had to be lifted or a single rearing would render it'unsightly. Of course no woman of taste was wil- itling to display underneath her f ashion- •TaWe gown a muslin lining wrinkled and it shapeless with a simple braid and a "blank band of facing upon it. On con- •sultation with the modistes' it was decided that silk should be chosen for .these foundation skirts and that the Skirts should' be prettily trimmed with cord or passementerie. This method of making the founda- _)n skirts pretty has long been a J JVench style, though it has been but readopted here. Where the skirt dr;a>erie_s esn be fasMiaoil on the waist the foundation skirt is: made separate and is put on like a, petticoat;' Should the akirt draperies be unattached to the waist, both skirts are gathered in on the sam« band, A pretty blue'.; costume"trimmed with red showed, when the skirt was lifted, a silk foundation of blue-trimmed with bands of red. On each 6ide of .the red bands was a slender gold cord. Boots, shoes and slippers continue to take on shapes that are more unique. The Jliliet is made in all shades of pretty colors to be worn with house dresses. Stockings of a contrasting- hue peep out at each side of the low-cut scollops, Mrs. Langtry is delighting the world of women by a magnificent exhibition of nice dresses in her play of "Lady Barter." There are five changes, each one of which seems prettier than the last In the first act the Lily wears a riding habit. The bodice is of the regulating coat-shaped, black in color. Underneath there is a waistcoat of horsecloth with large blue spots. The skirt is beautifully fitted. The horsecloth referred to is a kind of goods new with the sesson. It comes, in many shades and is diversified by large hairy spots of the same, or a contrasting color. The spots are ofttimes of ecru upon a black ground giving s leopsh-d skin effect. Again they are o white and brown upon a blue ground or yet black and white upon a deep re> foundation. The effect is showy anc generally good. In "Lady Barter," Mrs. Langtry lay claim to wearing the largest sleeve ever seen in a dress. The gown whicl bears them is a polonaise dress with a petticoat of pearl gray satin, with scrol work done in gold and fawn color. Thi polonaise is of fawn silk trimmed lightly with gold passementerie. The sleeve are fashioned on tho leg of mutton pattern, and are immense above the elbow. The prettiest dress of all is said to be a light-bluo crepe-de-chine tea gown On one side of the skirt is a cascade of pale yellow, slightly draped. The bodice is sufficiently tight-fitting- to show the contour of the waist. Zouave forms of gold embroidery outline the armholes; and a gold embroidered collar stands smartly upright. Two pairs of sleeves accompany this gown, producing at will an appearance so different as to suggest a change oJ gowns. One pair of sleeves is of yellow material to match the cascade on the side of the skirt. The other is of blue crepe-de-chine. Both pairs of sleeves are full and flowing. A peach-colored afternoon reception dress is trimmed with gold embroidery as to the waist. The skirt hangs f ul •wbrJf'inaking the well Havingf decided on the diameter of the well, cu boards of uniform length (usuallj about four feet), cutting- or notching ii each end as shown In the engraving- Dig the well square, placinff in the •boards upon all four sides; as it is deepened, two short strips are nailec over each crack to hold the boards in place.

All of the gowns -ire simple, but the ball dress which is of white ercpe-cle-chine is simpler than any of those described. Mock gems, cwellcd girdles and brilliant passe- menterie nre put upon the gowns at ,vill, thus varying the possible monotony of many appearances in tho same iostumo. Some idea of the perfection of Mrs. Langtry's dressmakers can be obtained !rom the fact that the dresses were all ordered by telejram from Worth and Mix, who understand Mrs. Laiigtry's ,astc so thoroughly that they require no nstructions us to color, material or 5tj-lc. By means of a dummy of the >roper siae and shape an exact fit is secured. Here is a toilette worn by Sara, the livinc, in "Frou-Frou." The gown-is a oose one of white China crepe; with el- yovf sleeves. The sleeves, neck and kirt have a gold embroidery. Around he bottom of the skirt is a deep knotted fringe,, against which' is placed a deep band of ostrich tips. A Louis XV jacket is of spring- green velvet with "•old embroidery and feather trimming.

WOODEN WELL-CURBING. A Simple Method That Is Botli Efficient and Serviceable. In sections of the country where stones or brick cannot be obtained the wells are curbed up with boards or timber, and this an important operation where wells are sunk through sand or friable soil;liable to cave in. Herewith is illustrated a method of curbing as- fast as the well is deepened.

Has it ever been your misfortune to be brought into frequent contact with a person excessively nervous. If so, you must be aware that trival causes, unnoticed by the vigorous, drive £ nervous invalid to the verge of dis traction. It is as unnecessary to particularize these as it impossible to guard against them. The root of the evil is usually imperfect indigestion and assimilation. To assist these functions, and through their renewed, complete discharge to reinfoiee weak nerves, in conjunction with other portions of physical organism is within the power of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, systematically and continuously used.
