Ill I DOLABELLE'S LETTER, The Present IB -tho Bra of. the Tailor-Made Qlrl. To J)« Strictly An Foil Vou IHnit n»ve at Loait One Down ltt»dn by a Rcpri,- Ktntntlve of the Stronger Sex —Some Samplo .Stylos* [Special Now York Letter. 1 The nineteenth century will be responsible for many reproductions of fashion, but it has originated one which will probably remain in favor for many years and be a power in the revival of fashions for generations to come. 1 allude to the tailor-made woman, who IK really a product of the period, the dress being one of her characteristics. I believe it was the princess of Wales who invented the style, but women wore gowns made by men in the time of Henry VIII., wlicn that capricious iniiiiy-wivcrt monarch grumbled over a payment made to .lohn Malt, tailor to Anne Holeyn. The tailor-made frowns of lli.it period, l-.owcv.u-, liore not the .slightest re- semblancci to those of to-day, as I linvc assured myself from prints of the time. You all know the dressmakers are away up in art now, as thoy take iheir loading designs fnmi DIP portraits painted by tho old musters, and yor. can easily mistake them for artists when yn:i see them, note book in hand, it some of oiirvuvy Siiloet art frailerios, •ir in thir Motivipoiitan museum. They ulso study the st-a^'e for llui same of- lV<:t.s, and the revival of an old play \viiich brings out tin- line dress of the S!ia\-ospoaro:in ago or Colloy Gibber's time draws out tho leading- dressmaker and produce:; a delightful eos- tnine—the result of a successful blend- in;; of ti:c now and Die old. i'have already hinted that there is a renewal of interest in the tailor-made frown, but I have seen so many completed costumes and orders for suits within a week that 1 have decided to pi vo a complete detailed account of the new garments, which include yachting 1 nnd sporting suits of the same style, but rather more fcsti ve in nake-upancl coloring. The actual tailor-made suit is quieTand super ulnprant. There are no sashes, or ribbon cravats with flying ends, or Jace ilourishes of any sort. There is nothing to catch on to a woman's parasol or a man's coat button as you glide past. It is—to use nautical language—trim and taut. It fits close, CU.STL'.MIi. but with 1.10 wl rained ciicet. A Ion? slim waist, the lines unbroken l>y belt or b'.iclde. i'ives tho figure that stylish plainness which is the acme of the dressmaking art. And hero is a ne\v feature. The waist ir.nst he absolutely round. Ni-;trly nil woman's waists are uuturully uvsi'l or elliptical, but tliu perfectly ronnu wnist is not ofton found except anioiif,' southern woinun, who are noted for I heir small round waists. A lint w;iist is now an object of ulihovrence. and J.hc IICAV corset is miRle with steels of compression at the sides Ihat \vill ansu-er the penitential' purpose of. a shirt of mail. A s-.n;irt tailor-made R'own is then tliu necessity of t!ie smart woman. That adjonlivi- is rather overu-orked.but it comprises the whole' vocabulary of personal elegance. The materials fur these powns ^u-e much latitude of choice-, as they include; every kind of cloth, in black, ]'i','hl, dark and white broadcloth, clieviolu or covert coating oi new English goods. I have just seen two stylt-s that were most dissimilar. One was a white broadcloth suit, with vest of white moire, ami walking- hat oC white Panama straw, trimmed with moira ribbon and cock's feathers, aj.so \vliitc. Tiiis was first to bo worn at g, elrareli weddinp at high noon. The otlicr was a string-colored covert-coatinff suit with waistcoat, lapels, collar and cuffs of Mack moire, awfully swell. Ihe style was a shortened coat flaring- stiffly, and the skirt cut to perfection falling- in rounded folds from the center of the back, and llarinfr gracefully from the bolt to the feet, liroad shoulders and narrow hips with quite a circumference around the feet, were characteristics of these new gowns. And there was not a crease visible. The tailor-made suitpoes to the prcsser the moment a crease is visible, and the g-irls who wcar them wait iu their divided skirts until they are returned to tho dressing-room in their first immaculate smoothness. By the way, the tailor-made woman usually patronizes the reform underwear in black silk, and is ready in an emergency to take off her costume, when she appears quite respectably clad. These ladies, while at the presscr's, amuse themselves with fencing- bouts, physical culture, gymnastics and other athletic sports. In regard to color, there is no fashion in color this season; it is altogether a matter of individual taste. The creat idea in clothes IB originality. Woman no lojurer flook together ia V,'^:. green, or plum, or any uniform of color. The fashionable woman is not a stereotyped edition of her sister. But there are colors to bo preferred by types of women. There is the navy-blue, intermixed with mauve, which is worn with a vest of the mauve tone. Fancy black weaves are made lip with waistcoats of some brighter color, in moira silk. Altogether, an all-black costume, the waistcoat composed of dull moire, is very fetching with a gay cravat. The yachting, or outing, costume is not strictly tailor-made, but is built on that plan. It is composed of navy- blue cheviot cloth. The jacket is trimmed down the front and round the collar—which is sailor in the back— with blue ribbon a shade or tone lighter than the goods, inserted iu YAC1ITIXG OK OUTING GOWK. slits made for the purpose. The sltirt is trimmed on the edge correspondingly. The very stylish waistcoat is strapped across with the ribbon.. The hat is a boatinff shape, in yellow straw, with a band of blue velvet and mother- of-pearl buckle, The skirt is the new-draped skirt of the spring style. It is very popular with ladies who desire the cft'ect of drapery without its inconvenience. The lining on the left side is faced up for some distance with either silk or velvet, or a darker cloth of the same kind as that used fox- the dress, and a narrow band of it extends around the skirt, girififf the effect of an underskirt. The box-plait is arranged loosely at the side. A six-inch facing o£ stiffening should be fitted between the material and the lining so that they will stand out well. Perhaps I should add to the remarks on color the information that Ary delicate shades in suitings will be made up by the ladies' tailors in jackets and skirts, with a round cape for an outside wnip. The conventional cut is the coat and skirt with strapped si-amsam! the silk Mouse. r,ut (lie j:ickei. buttoned from the shoulder wi.Ui :i short basque is equally fashionable. The loose fronted tailor-made iiickot is also popular, (.'oats are several inches shortur, a compromise belween the jacket and the three- quarter length. > : »"" there is a demand for a ladies' shirt-bosom maker. The still' shirt bosom does nut set well and is too pronounced. An ideal shirt is demanded which can be worn witk link studs, or some form of feminine, jewelry. There should lie a little sofl.-nin;; of the severity attendant on masculine attire. Checl'r, r.re r.eori in some of the new imported garim-nts. and, strangely enough. Paris is responsible for their revival instead uf ihe "land of cakes and hrither Sects." A leading dressmaker here, who made herself known to fame a year or two ago by defying the customs and bringing confections across duty free, has imported a shepherd's plaid costume of yellow, black and green. The skirt is bias in tho back, with the new plaited basque. I can never describe the strops of satin, the steel buttons and flat..arrange.- THE .NKW SKIRT. mem of exquisite black in.cc which looked as if it were made with the material. The skirt had a trhnniinpr of black satin ribbon, which was finished back and front by a big flat bow, fastened down with the steel buttons. Apropos of ribbon trimminpf on skirts, it is jnst as popular as ever, either in a ro\v around the edge or in circles one above the other. The costume for calling- is of indipfo- blue mohair crcpon, ornamented with a. lighter shade of blue braid; skirt with plaited front; fichu of blue moire antique with sash ends at the back; continental hat of Italian straw faced •with blue velvet, with light blue ostrich tips under the brim. Hats for the tailor-made women must be severely plain; either a dented summer felt, with band, buckle and aigrette, or a boating shape in tho now walking-hat of straw. Aigrettes are tbo i»(tc. I heard of one hat that was sent homo to one of our uotuam belles, and it had no aigrette, but the lady did not discover the lack until the next morning, which was Sunday. At church she appeared radiant with a lovely aigrette of ecru and black. How did she get it? Why, she utilized her husband's new shaving-brush— that's how, I)OI.ABEI.T.E. A BIT OF ROMANCE. The Bachelor Lout One Thing and Oalned a liottor. He was a rich old bachelor. Not too old, either, but just old enough; and ha was a nice old bachelor, too, who seemed happiest when he was making other people happy. The pretty waiter girl at the restaurant where he took his meals liked him immense^', but she would have to do that to like him one- half as well as he liked her. Indeed, he liked her so.that his friends insisted that he ate neven meals a day, not to mention lunches between meals. Hut he didn't care for their talk. He laughed cheerily to aid his digestion, and went there us often as he wished. One day after he had linishnd a meal he hurried out, and in a, minute or less he hurried back again. "Didn't T leave something here?" ho asked her as he began looking around. "I think not." she replied as she joined in the search. "I'm sure I did," lie insisted, pnking around amonp the tables and chairs. "\Vh:it was 'it Mice?" she inquired. "O, it's about so big. I've heard say," be said, holding up his h:mds iu measurement, Shu looked athim curiously and tried to remember how many glares of wine he had taken at lunch. •Tin snro you didn't leave ^ h erc >" she said, "i'erhans you left it, somewhere else." "I hope not." "Well," she suggested reassuringly, "if I come across it I'll keep it for yon." "Are you sure you will?" he asked in a tone so strongly implying doubt that the ffrrl's face flushed. "You know I will," she answered warmly. "Haven't you known me long enough to trust me?" "But this was valuable," he said, still searching for it For the first time in their acquaint anco the girl didn't like him. "Suppose you speak to the proprietor about it then and let him keep it for you," she said half angrily. "Gracious, no." ho exclaimed, "I don't want him V> have it." "Then tell inj what it is," she insisted, "and I'll return it 1o you." "But I .:•">'!. want you to," he Inugbed softly.

Tilt- I'opulnr Iill-a <-oi.ror.-inc TJirr.i n Wofu! KsnBpi'rsiilon of tlic Trutli. The no-rocs of the south, especiiiHy those of Uic sea islands, have been the victims of a good deal of exaggeration first and last. Their tendencies and characteristics have been wofully cx- a operated by hasty writers for the press and their personal appearance his been caricatured by artists. No one can say why, for surely the no-vo. both on the uplands and on the sea islands, is more interesting as he really is than as he is pictured to be. There has been a theory since the war that the sea island negroes are 1-vnsin- into a- state of barbarism and s-ivan-ery. It is impossible to say precisely what this theory was based on but it has no basis now, or not cnousrh to attract the attention of the careful observer. It is just twenty years since I first saw and studied the speech and characteristics of the sea island non-rocs; more than twenty years since ?>iddy .lack- astonished mo with Ins Grllah talk, -half African, and less than half JOiifrlish- During that, time there has been a great improvement m the noToes of this region. They are still different from their brothers in the upland plantations, but the Gttllah element is nearly wiped out, nnd the Congo type is rapidly disappearing. -Joe Chandler J-larns. >n Scribncr's. _ A Pretty SprliiR Wrap. Capes are infinite in variety and are sure to hold their place while the much-puffed sleeve exists. Here is a pretty one very easily made by the home dressmaker. It has two accordion-plaited frills of black net the the edge, and wit", jot or nar- fri around tho neck.
