THE FAIR SEX. Summer SVlnts to be Elaborate. Fashions In Cririge trimming have changed radically Vlnce they recently put in an ar-pearanee. The manner of applying remains much the same, but instead of the solid colors that prevailed at hrst, the stylish sort is variegated in ea' hmere shades. With a variety of color in the trimming, it is deemed proper to go in for unusual shades or odd combinations in the gown Itself.
The bodice of this picture is a good illustration of this tendency. Tea "colored satin cloth was its material: and collar were smocked whi'e tulle, and the double fichu bretelle was pink cloth. Add a black bell bikI a bow of black velvet and white bice, and an unusual color scheme is completed. Not i few of such are a distinct gain in beauty and richness, -but -they are hardly afe for amateur effort. There are too manv chances of getting a-result that lookH like a patchy hodge-podge.
Separate skirt of summer material are nut in full force. It is now possible to buy a wonder or a skirt made of pink lawn, beflour.tcl and edged with row on row of babv black velvet. It is an easy matter to match the lnwn and make a bodice ftn-Hhed with a dash of the black velvet. There you have a whole frock very easily. White lawn skirt with insertions, flounces, tucking and lace come In all degrees of price and beauty.
It seems worth while to have the skirt of a summer gown made; better give all attention to the. bodice. One must be a little careful to see to It that she la able to match the trimming used on the skirt. But not a few will plan their white gowns with bodices almost plain, Just cut out a bit about the neck, their aim being to make the skirt the elaborate part of the rig. ON THE BRIDGE WITH DEWEY.
Ex-Untterl States Consul Will-lama to Lecture at the Carnesie Mnaie Hall MarcU 23. Former United States Consul O. F. Williams, who was stationed at Manila before and during the Spanish will be in Pittsburgh to deliver his lecture, On the Bridge With Pewey," Carnegie musio hall on Friday evening, March 23. This announcement was made yesterday at the Thirteenth United Presbyterian church, Allentown, by the pastor.
Rev. I. P. Members of the congregation have been quietly arranging for the engagement, of ex-Consul Williams and the announcement of their success came as a pleasing surprise. While the war clouds gathered.
Consul Williams held a number cf conferences with Aguinaldo and other Filipino leaders and obtained much information which he afterwards made good use of. He also obtained secret plans of Spanish defenses, pictures of fortineatlons and plana of deep water channels, all of which, he furnished to Dewey at Hong Kong. In doing a portion of this work he was tracked by Spanish detectives and was warned bv the United States government to leave Manila. After assisting in the departure of United States citizens. Consul Williams himself crossed the China sea and Joined Dewey.
To the information he supplied Dewey with in advance of the battle was largely due the success of the admtral's: attack. When he had to. quit Manila, Admiral Dewey waited for two days with his fleet off Hong Kong for Mr. Williams to Join and accompany him back on the way to battle, and the consul passed through all of the exciting scenes of the following days. He stood on the bridge of the dympla with Dewey during that memorable battle.
A committee representing the church confer with a number of prominent citizens to-day with a view deciding upon the advisability of inviting Admiral and Mrs. Dewey to come to Pittsburgh for the occasion. The lecture is to be fcKen for the benefit of the Thirteenth U. P. church.

Prints are very firm, and advances of about 5- per cent, made some lines of both fancies and staples. Ginghams very strong. Print cloths quiet at yesterday's advance. Cotton yarns very strong, and spinners are reserved even at higher prices than last week. Woolen and worsted yarns also very firm.
MANCHESTER. March 4.There was a fair cloth business at the beginning of last week for India and China, but, ever since, cotton has been running much too fast and only urgent orders have been put forward. These small commands seem rather plentiful from the minor markets, but the aggregate is less than the output. Engagements, however, are stUl heavy and all the producers now want Is fail covering on the daily cotton basis. Fancy colored bleached printed, and figured goods are doing well.
In yarns current needs only are being covered. Prtces are stronc. be4ng 3-16 of a farthing higher. Germany had an active week's trade, yarns following" cotton easily. France continues active and deeply engaged, with prices rising.
Iron and Steel Report. PHILADELPHIA. March 3. Pig iron-The market is dull, and prices are somewhat irregular, but the extremely light supplies which are being carried prevents any general decline. When iron Is forced on the market, lower prices are unavoidable, but it is only once in a while that this occurs.
Still the situation is uncertain, and prices are ready to move either way on vrj' slight pressure. Billets Nothing doing of any account; prices nominal at 35.50 and S6 asked. Finished material The demand is fair and prices are pretty well maintained. There is an excellent prospect for the rpring and summer months, but the capacity for output is so great that there la a constant prersure to secure orders, for which reason prices are firm, in others they are the reverse. Old material There is a belter demand for old material, and while prices are not higher, holders have less trouble in selling at Quowd rates, and more frequently 65 Fine Qaartered Oak 5 ft.
