pretty, graceful, neat and useful and
also ecnsiblo all at once. When wo do,
it becomes a duty to ''make a Bote of it,
Dnnsby." And so I have stack a pin in
tho nicest outdoor garment I have found
in four seasons, This (s a close rolln-
foto, mado of the now flecked cheviot,
lie color is two shades of brown with
whlto flocks all over It, so that it looks
as if tho fair wearer had been out in a
snowstorm, but tho material is rich and
handsome, yet very modest on account
of tho eoloring. Tho skirt was cut em
pire shape, and the waist was perfectly
plain. Thoro was n band of buck plush
around tho bottom of tho akirt and up
tho front, with a bolt, collar and epaulets
of tho same. Thoro was a littlo capo
that formod caps to tho sleeves in front
and formed n loose capo ncross tho back.
Tho skirt cleared tho ground all around
by half an inch.
OTEFUL. BUSINESS RKDINOOTK DRESS.
This is ono of the most convenient
gowns for a business woman or for mar
keting or any other use to which a lady
could wish to put it. It can close down
the front with invisible hooks and eyes,
or it can be arranged by having the
Slush bands postiche. To make this
resa is an easy task, aa the akirt is plain.
The waist is a plain bodice, and the cape
is a width of the goods cut on the straight
aad lined with Ifght silk to match it in
color. The plush should be cat on the
bias and cross Btitchod down is the back
over wigan. The bands thus treated are
solid, and it is easy to catatitch them on
the goods. It would require bat S yards
of cheviot for this gown and If yards of
While the newest shades aad colon
how much brilliancy, there Are many
standard colors, and among them 'dark
blue, green and brown are favorites. Ker
sey color is pretty trimmed with brown,
and there i re numbers of tailor suits
mado all of kersoy. Whlto or darker
brown will t.im them, nnd braids are to
betuod to a very unusual extent this
season, mostly very narrow soutache,
silk tailor braids sown on flat, or wido
and heavy herculea braid. Black fino
wools nnd silks are of tho richest quality
ana will require littlo garniture. Tho
satin duchess will almost stand alono,
It is so thick, and it is very lustrous with
a frosty bloom over it. Fino loco and
passementerie are the only trimmings
worthy of such a fabric.
' What odd shapes we find in tho n"
hats and bonnets! Some of them are
simply indescribable, and one needs an
artist's pencil. Thero is a shovel shaped
bat of satin straw bound with fine plaid
velvet- Theaqriare front is turned back
ward, and in the center is a bunch of
blue velvet cornflowers, and a straggling
bnnch of wide velvet leaves.' The' crown
and sides of the hat areliterally crowded
with .the flowers. '
There are other queer shapesfono of
them being scalloped into points, and
Abovejhe i oiuted brim there, are Mer
ca'ry wings field by a bow of .velvet.
These' wlnt, are sometimes, parrots',
again doves', nnd then again it would be
impossible to imagine what bird had
worn thetn.fai they will be made irides
cent, with, peacocks' feathers, such aa
grow on tho neck, and-humming birds'
plumes. Some felt hats in pearl gray
in the various liarlequin shapes will be
covered with white mistletoe or holly
berries and leaves, so natural. that t$
seems they must havo grown thero.
