-ur"*?<'«*»?'» THE WOMAN OF FASHION 'What the Bridesmaids Are Wearing at Spring Weddings. Pretty Combinations In Louis Oulnzo Coats—Pretty House Jackets—An Exquisite Costume Worn by a In- Second Mourning. [COPYRIGHT, 1891,'i Six radiant bridesmaids, resplendent fe brig-lit hued Louis XV. coats and airy- fairy skirts, go tripping- blithely adown, the church aisles after the most eleg-ant of spring- brides. One pretty wedding- saw the six "bridesmaids in white chiffon skirts and long- brocaded silk coats with white lace arranged as a jabot over the vest. Two of the brocaded coats were of pink, two othsrs were of pale yellow, and the remaining two were of light blue. The entire party so far as the maids •were concerned carried flower muffs to accord with the coat. Those in yellow carried violet muffs, those in pink toyed •with lilac ones, and those in light blue had lilies of the.valley. The muffs were suspended from the neck by a tiny silver chain. At another spring-wedding the bridesmaids were dressed in white chiffon cut rery decollete. White crepe was gathered at the top of the bodice and broug-ht liigh around the neck with white satin ribbon. Crepe sleeves fell low over the bands. Instead of the bridal bouquet, the tride frequently carries a floral muff of tie kind described as carried by brides- BJ£ADY FOR THE BALL. maids. In one disengaged hand may T>e borne the prayer book. This is, however, somewhat old style, the bridal Txracjuet or bridal muff being- sufficient. For ball gowns, mousseline de soie and chiffon are favorite materials. The latter greatly resembles white crepe. A much admired dress was of rose pink chiffon, trimmed down the irontof the skirt with ribbons of the , same hue, and caught at the side with , bunches of natural flowers. Velvet formed the material for one shoulder puff. The other was of chiffon, con' cealed beneath a spray of flowers. Another gown extremely becoming "to its blonde wearer was a salmon pink crepe, cut decollette. Soft white lace edged the neck and arm-holes. House bodices to be worn with any skirt have become favorites in the spring wardrobe of tasteful • women. All modistes will affirm, and most •women have found out from disagreeable experience, that it spoils the waists of gowns to wear them under close fitting jackets in the street or to keep "them on for ordinary indoor wear. . The adoption, of novel bodices is, there- lore, an innovation that has in its favor economy and the general welfare of the "wardrobe. Cloth jackets with velvet sleeves and .collar and trimmings of jewelled passe- menterie are favorites, as are also the simpler skirt waist styles. China silk and pongee in bright shades may be procured at a low sum, and from, this material there may be evolved tasteful, natty, becoming house waists. The prettiest gown of the season was seen the first Thursday after Easter at an afternoon-at~home. A young widow about to discard widow's weeds for the more cheerful habiliments of second mourning was responsible'for its creation. The skirt was a trained one, heliotrope velvet in hue and edged all .around with black feather trimming-. The left side was slashed, revealing a •panel of white gauze embroidered in silver. The bodice was draped in extremely low over a vest of embroidered gauze and was caught at the left side •with a heliotrope rosette. A very high mediei collar of the gauze set off the neck, while gauze bands fell low over eomrfcrs in all the newest shades of grey, red, fawn, ecru, ruby, blue and brown. It may be found in some of the shades fringed to form a trimming- for the hot-torn of the coat. The light colored cloths may be trimmed with jet jewels, nail heads or wafers. These come in all sizes and are sewed on in graduated rows beginning with very large ones, running down the middle of the back and front and terminating with small ones at the arm-holes. The collar is trimmed in the same way. Festoons of jet are looped over the puff at top of the sleeve. In millinery the most conspicuous shades are heliotrope and yellow green. Two shepherdess' hats, very becoming to their wearers, were seen on the Riverside drive a few days ago. The first one had for a framework a very heavy gilt wire. The crown was of puft'ed heliotrope chiffon. At • the back was a bunch of heliotrope feathers. The second one was built upon a foundation of thick green stems. The crown was covered with lilacs. Bows of green ribbon velvet stood smartly aloft at front and back. The brims of these hats are not faced, hence the framework is plainly visible. Flower hats are favorites for theater and calling wear. These are tiny and are perched high upon the most fantastically-constructed coiffures. One hat all of daffodils was seen. Another composed entirely of violets was worn, fastened in plate by amber pins. A third hat of lilies-of-the-valley was drawn far forward over the bangs of the wearer and was caught there by a cut silver hat pin. The sailor hat is again seen. It is smaller in the rim than it was last .year and is trimmed with a gay handkerchief puffed over the crown. Skirts are growing narrower and narrower and are "drawn more and more tightly back. The plainness is almost painful in appearance, suggesting a difficulty in walking and a masculine effect which is almost vulgar. The fullness in the back is gathered into a space of a couple of inches at the waist, below which it branches out like a fan and terminates in a demi-train which sweeps the floor. The most popular mode is to leave the skirts entirely plain except for the tiny ruffle of silk with which it is faced, peeping forth underneath. To relieve the floppy, flappy effect about the feet a deep padding or stiffening is placed underneath the material extending to a height just above the knees. A few of the skirts have a heavy ruffle or niching' of the same material around the bottom of the skirt. Others have a deep flounce, and still others have two flounces, but the majority are entirely plain. Challies and other thin materials are too flimsy to bear the tight drawing back. These are made somewhat fuller, and are treated to fkmnces of the same material. A pretty gray challie has an .edging of white lace plaited in with the top of the flounce. White lace finishes off the neck, the sleeves and the bottom GAuiJnn FRIENDS. The McKinley Law Making New Frlenda B.» It Becomes Better Known. The stalwart protection afforded American industry by the McKiiiley law is apparent in every provision, as the law is enforced and becomes better understood. Among other things the admission of foreign goods under false pretenses, to the detriment of the American manufacturer, is strictly prohibited. As a specific illustration of the severity of the law in this respect we reproduce from the democratic New York Sun the following significant incident: Here Is something about the McKinley bill which everyone will say Is good There are now beginning to appear in the cutlery stores many knives and other articles on which is stamped the word "Germany." The McKinley bill requires this. In the custom house and at sea on their way back to Germany are hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of goods which are not stamped "Germany." A large dealer in cutlery, in discussing this effect upon the bill, said that the market had been flooded with knivas and cutlery of all sorts stamped "Providence Cutlery Co." or "New Bedford Cutlery Co.," but nevertheless of such inferior material that men who bought them vowed that they would never again buy an American knife or tool. Our American cutting tools are the best in the world, and hereafter tney will not suffer from unfair competition. The McKinley law is gaining friends every day. The reaction in favor of the measure gains force as it is perceived that Mr."" McKinley and his associates framed a consistent and comprehensive act of protection for American industry, favoring home labor and capital wherever it was possible by provisions which not only placed adequate duties on foreign imports but also prevented both undervaluation and the sale of foreign goods under domestic labels.—Albany Journal.

So are many people chained to the rock of prejudice while all manner of violent medicines inflict injury upon the sensitive lining- of the stomach and intestines. They are apparently immovable in the belief that to experience benefit they must keep dosing with drastic medicines. Unless thejac- tion of these is powerful and excessive, they are not satisfied. They would distrust a remedy of gentle action, however effective. It is not by such purblind extremists as these that the acknowledged merits of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters are recognized. That benign regulator of the stomach, the bowels and the kidneys appeals to the rational—not only appeals, but is awarded a just valuation.
