New Yoiik, October 17.
Tho town is given over to one color 1 do not
xncan red, though considerable of that prevails
but'I do mean mauve. Of this dainty and dcll
cato color there are said to be seventy-two dif
ferent shades, and to start a man out to match a
piece of ribbon means cither that he is a devoted
slave or that ho will return in fifteen minutes
and make the air blue with his favorite language.
Young women who ought not to wear mauve
look like lemons in it, and those who can smile
at them and wonder why people who do not
know anything about art assume mauve shades.
THE STOltY Or A NEW YOHK HELI.E.
An old story has been revamped and fitted for
drawing-room use apropos of the color of mauve.
It rocs this way: A professional beauty had a
dream wherein she was told that she would die
at a certain time; being, like all professional
beauties, a little particular as to her belongings,
she concluded that she would select her shroud
for herself, so oft she trotted to the undertaker's.
She inquired with becoming solemnity, "What
is the latest thing in shrouds?" The polite
gentleman who undertook said, "Well, for
young girls and children and ladles who
have never had their hair bleached, nor been
written up in the newspapers, nor have been in
terviewed and told just -what underclothes they
wore, wo make all white; but for married ladies
and widows and young ladies who have been
guilty of golden tresses not their own, of look
ing too much on the rouge pot, and having their
photographs sold in tho shops wo make mauve
ones." The beauty looked at him for a long
time, then answered, "Make mine all white;" but
she stopped and thought she saw him looking
at her hair; she saw him looking at her cheeks
and she added, "You might put a dash of
Now, whether all New York is wearing mauvo
because they do not care to introduce the dash,
and so givo themselves away, no man can say,
but for tho last week every gown in five has been
one of the seventy-two shades. Even the dogs
are adorned with huge bows of mauve, and there
Is nothing more absolutely beautiful than to see
a determined fox terrier doing gymnastics in the
dust of the street with the view of getting that
ribbon off his neck. My sympathies are entirely
with the dog, for I think a good dog, like a fine
picture, does not need ribbon adornments to
bring out its beauty.
THE METROPOLIS'S SEW THEATRE.
All the 6marfc New Yorkers went to the open
ing of tho new Garden Theatre, and laughed for
two hours at the wild little farce, "Doctor
Bill," that has delighted London ifor bo long a
time past. The theatre itself, quite irrespective
of its beauty, which is undeniable, is a joy for
ever, because the seats are so arranged that no
matter how big the hat in front of you may be,
you can see over it. "Doctor Bill" itself is
fun rollicking, hilarious fun from beginning
to end. As the central figure there moves be
witching Sadie Martinot, who is so eager to im
press on her neighbor that all men are alike,
and that the newly married husband is no better
than any other. When she announces that she
can make the Doctorflirtwithher, every woman
In the audience unconsciously nods, for tho man
who could resist her sweet tones, her beautiful
gowns, and her charming manner wouldn't be a
man at all, ho would bo clay, and of the com
monest, lowest kind. Although the play is full
of funny situations, to me the most perfect piece
of acting was shown when Miss Martinot, as
Mrs. Ilorton, tho ex-actress, the new wife of the
Inspector of the Police, pays a morning visit
and does tho flue lady as she conceives her to
be. She drawls out her platitudes, gives dainty
little shrugs, grows femininely ecstatic over her
nerves, and has about her a satisfied air of do
ing the right thing that is dolicious. It is a quiet
piece of comedy that half tho audience do not
appreciate, aud shows in its execution how
much Miss Martinot has gained by studying tho
French stage. I am of those people who liko to
bo amused; consequently, I found good in
everything, even in Doctor Bill's prescriptions.
WHERE TASTES DUTCH.
Tho critics yearn for something analytical;
they want to exploit their pens and splatter
their ink about as to whether tho curl on a man's
forehead means that ho Is in the depths of de
spair or only that he intends running away with
his friend's wife that night. They want tho
frou-frou of u frock to hint of yearnings for a
knowledge of another world, and tho pose of an
arm to signify a deep and intense love that is
devouring everybody even the youngest child
of tho family. For my own part, I couut this
nonsense. I want to know what tho peoplo are
talking about and what they mean. I don't go
to the theatre to work out problems aud to btick
on tho passlnorum, but to enjoy myself. Some
times tho enjoyment takes the form of a cieepy
murder, sometimes of a lovo story, and some
times of a continuous evening of laughter.
THE TALK OF A LEAK.
For years New York has not had enough
water to wash in. That is to bay, In most houses
the silver faucets on the third floor were snares
and delusions. Now they havo water, and to
epaie, and the plumber Is singing as merrily as
possible, and 16 as happy as only a mau can be
who feels that ho hah his fellow-man completely
under his thumb. I assisted at tho mending of,
or rather tho stopping up of a pipo the other
night, and tho means used gave mo an idea of
tho possibilities of tho medical profession. I
had never thought of applyluganythlngheallng
to a lead pipo, but I now know that it can he
done. The leak started at the mystic hour of
IS and dripped down from tho third story iuto
the second, casually ruining a lot of books. It
took three women aud one man to discover
that leak, and a woman found it !
A NEW USE l'OIl l'OROUS PLASTERS,
Wo were attired as you might suppose peoplo
would bo at that time of night. Tlio two who
did the most looking and working were in
wrappers, wool ones put on hastily over night
dresses. The one who did tho most talking sat
on tho 6klo of the bed in a silk night-dress anu
dangled her feet, admiring her Turkish slippers.
Tho man was presentable in a pair of trowscrs
aud n dressing gown. Wlien tho leak was
found ouo of tho workors announced her deter
mination to put a porous plaster on it. And I
givo you my word of honor that it was, and it
stuck aud prevented further damago for that
night. The plumber rather scorned it, but it
only goes to show the possibilities of a woman's
brain, for who but a woman would have
dreamed of stopping a bad leak with such a
funny thing? After it was all over tho genius
refreshed herself with ginger ale, aud the rest of
us sat aud thanked Heaven for tho wit and wis
dom that by sisterhood of sex belonged to us.
Tho chatelaine, with its jingling bells and half
n hundred odd toys, is again to tho fore. This
year it must have not only tho usual accompani
ment of tablets and pencils and pin-cushions,
but it must also show a tiuy little silver walnut
that when open contains a Httlo powder-puff
aud enough powder to last for an evening.
l'OWDER AND SAUCER ROUOE.
The perfectly open and gcueral uso of powder
aud of saucer rouge is wonderful. Thcro was a
timo when the women who indulged in such
luxuries did it secretly and trusted that nobody
knew, but nowadays mademoiselle's best young
man does not hesitate to tell her that a littlo
rouge would add to her appearance, or if ho
thinks she has too much on he will announce
that fact and daintily shado it off for her. In
the extremely fashionable set the girls are rouged
up to their eyes, a fashiou adopted from tho
English women, and ouo that is neither pretty
nor refined. The English girl lacks the Ameri
can's ability to make up, and the American,
thinking she is very clever, copies stupidity.
Some of tho so-called beauties arc made to havo
such burning red complexions that they look as
if an apoplectic stroke were imminent, aud re
mind one of the women in the far heathen lands
who refused to accept auy articlo of civilized
wearing apparel except the corset. Then they
required the services of two strong warriors to
pull it sufficiently tight to suit them; tho glow
they got In their faces and tho size their waists
proclaimed answered exactly to that of tho
smart girl who leads among the Four Hundred.
CORSETS AND TIGHT LACING.
Missionaries attempt to say that the tight-lacing
women are dying out, but I am not a be
liever in women dying from overlscing. They
may grow ugly, their noses will get red, and
their eyes lose their lustre, but they don't die
Providence keeps them on earth as horrible ex
amples. My own especial fad is that a well-fitting
corset is a joy forever, and when it comes
to wearing those dreadful corded waists and
wriggling around in them, I feel tempted to
ask why should a woman wriggle ? There is
certainly nothing prettv in it, and if she were a
child she would undoubtedly receive what In
my younger days was known as a "warming
up." A woman wants to hold her body easily
and unaffectedly, and to be properly supported.
The disappearance of the corset usually means
the rapid following of everything else that is
feminine, including a knowledge of what is
right and of what is wrong. Oh ! you say, but
she is prejudiced. My dear soul, I never met a
crank In my life, a crank on the subject of
dress or free love, of doing away with babies or
letting men stay at home and rock the cradle,
who had not begun her downward career by
casting aside the stays.
NEEDS Or THE MODERN AVOMAN.
Really, tho modern woman needs a great many
things. Just now she needs a new bonnet, and
she'is searching all New York for it.
She needs a new coat, and she thinks it a per
sonal Insult that the seals should reduce the size
of their families and so make their skins more
Sho needs a hunch of roses, a box of candies,
and tho very sweetest words that a man can say
to her at all times and seasons.
She needs information as to why tho Tariff bill
has made champagne, perfumes, orris powder,
aud Bass's ale more expensive.
She needs to learn to write a lnglhlo hand, or
else to employ a type-writer.
She needs to learn to smile and smile, and still
be a villain when she wishes to seduce the golden
ducats from the masculine contingent.
She needs to be a little more careful how sho
speaks, and to remember that though tho tongue
may bo a divine instrument tho devil often plays
She needs to bo better mannered, sweeter
voiced, and moro amiable.
Amiability is the divine something most appre
ciated by manklud. And it Is tho ouo thing that
a woman with an opinion of her own, brains of
her own, heart of her own, and a slight temper
of her own finds It most difficult to achieve. The
state of amiability is undoubtedly ouo of grace.
Dear sisters, let us hope that some day wo will
all get in it. If you are ever so far off from it
so is Bad.

A Novel Dress Cover.
From tho Eveniug World.
Those women who buy dresses to hang up or
pack away will bo Interested in tho dress covers
which now form a portion of tho dainty woman's
trousseau, and have their origin, as do many
prettily useful toilet accessories, in tho French
woman's fancy. They are oblong pieces of flno
muslin, bordered with deep lace, wrought all
around with silk needlework, ornamented with
an embroidered monogram in tho centre, and
lined with silk. They often match tho night
gown case and bureau sachets, and are intended
to he spread over the eveulng or dinner gown
laid out by the lady's maid preparatory to the
toilet. Dress cases havo been for some timo In
use among women nice in tho care of their
gowns. Thoy are oblong bags of muslin, shirred
up on tapes at tho top, and designed to protect
delicato dresses hanging In wardrobes or closets
from dust or contact with coajscr gowns. Thoy
are made broad enough to take in tho most
generously draped skirts without crushing

THE HOUSE OF THE WOLF1NOS. By
inilfam Morris. In this book of the English
poet wo havo what lias been justly called by nu
eminent English authority n now form of lltcrnry
art. This newness consists of a blending of proso
and verso that has been dono with an artistic
touch, although it must bo acknowledged thnt
tho strangeness of tho form no less thau tho
archaic language employed falls with a disturb
ing effect on tho mind of tho reader. Tho
changes from proso to tho measured cadenco of
tho verso are doftly mnnaged, nnd occur in pas
sages whero tho spirit has been fittingly aroused
by tlio intorest of tho talc. "The Houso of tho
Woirtngs" is a story of Britain at tho period of
tho Homan invasion, told In as near an approach
to tho lnuguago of tho earliest chronicles as Is
consistent with current understanding. Tho
author has nut into Ills work nil Inuncuso amount
of knowledge of tho customs of thosodim ages,
and has sought to rccrcato tho proper ntmosphoro
by an artistic imitation of tho quaintly turned
sentences, tho bold simplicity of statement, tho
frequent uso or Imagery, and tho employment of
old English words and phrases. But, as bororo
said, ho has carried nono of theso to an cxces3
that obscures tho souse, but has sought only to
engender in tho mind or tho reader a propor feel
ing of sympathy with the spirit of tho period of
his story, nnd to bring back as far as may bo by
those nrohalo touchos tho racial, social, and ro
liglous conditions or tho parly Britons. Tho
proso Is strong, clear, nnd masterful; tho verso nt
times epic in its simple power and beauty.
Tho story itself la not involved nor overladen
with incident. Tho London Athcnaum has
hailed "Tho Houso of tho Wolflugs" as one of tho
greatest works of puro literature of the timo a
work whoso very cxeellcnco will prevent its
being popular. Roberts Brothers, publishers,

LIFE WITH THE FOIiTl'-irmTri MASSA
CHUSETTS VOLUNTEERS. By Henry T.
Johns. This is a volume of 410 pages, handsomely
bound in cloth, and cmbollisliod with a flno steel
engraving or Col. (afterward Maj. Gen.) Bartlctt,
or whoso military life it presents tho fullest his
tory yet published. Tho memorable campaign
terminating in tho surrender of Port Hudson is
hero for tho first timo given its full significance.
Our victories at Vicksburg and Gettysburg, oc
curring at tho samo time as that surrender, drew
tho public attention away from a campaign
marked by tho most romantic iuoidents of tho
war. Thcro tho valor of the colored troops on
the Held where under tho inspiration of freedom
thoy first grappled in arms with their former
masters triumphantly answered tho question,
"Will the negro light?" Tho "forlorn hopes" or
ganized May 27 and Juno 15, 1803, stand out as
something terribly unique in tho art of war. The
desperatcness of tho struggle is manifested by
the fact that while Grant at Vicksburg lost iu
killed and wounded 13 per cent, of his force
Banks at Port Hudson lost 10 per cent. Tho au
thor says: "Early in my military service, believ
ing that the true Inwardness of war could only
bo shown by tho private soldier, I determined to
write a history of my regiment. Most or it was
written in our respective camps and in resting
intervals during marches, and much of it on the
edge of battlc-nolds, on looso slips of paper, sent
to tho rear to bo forwarded to my wife in case a
higher power had selected mo to fall."
STATESMEN'S DISHES is an artistically
made volume for which wo aro indebted to the
publishers of tho National Tribune, of this city.
It is beautirully gotten together, printed on flno
paper, with uncut edges, and its very appearance
is suggestive of tho good things tho secrets of
whoso concoction are rovealed within. Each
recipe has an entire page dovoted to it, and bears
a fac-similo of tho signature of somo lady well
known in Washington society, who vouches for
Its excellence. Altogether there aro over two
hundred and twenty pages in tho volume, and
this gives an idea of tho number of; recipes to bo
found in it and tho distinguished women who
contributed. Among tho latter aro Mrs. Harri
BOn, Mrs. Windom, Mrs. Wanamaker, Mrs. Mil
ler, wife of tho Attorney General; Mrs. Noble,
Mrs. Itusk, Mrs. Fuller, Mrs. Samuel F. Miller,
Mrs. Stephen J. Field, Mrs. Ingalls, Mrs. John
Sherman, Mrs. Reagan, Mrs. Quay, Mrs. M. C.

Logan, Mrs. Sheridan, PhoeboW. Cousins, Mrs.
Blackburn, Mrs. Mills, Mrs. Campbell, wife of
tho Governor of Ohio; Mrs. A. C. Hnrmor, Mrs.
Upton, and Mrs. Ro3well P. Flower. In fact,
hardly a lady who is herself well known or
whoso husband is well known in Washington
public or social life but is among tho contribu
tors to this beautiful and valuablo cook-book.
In addition, tho Hon. Thomas F. Bayard, ox
Secrotary of State, who has a national reputa
tion as a terrapin cook, furnishes tho rcclpo by
which ho prepares that toothsome viand.
QALGANO'S WOOING AND OTHER
POEMS. By Sarah Bridges Stlbbcns. This neat
volume of verse, bound in bluo and gold, comes
from tho presses of G. W. Dillingham, Now
York, and may bo found on salo in this city nt
Brontnno's. Tho author has considerable facility
at verse making und is by no means wanting in
poetio feeling and Imagination. There is a gen
uine poetic swing and fervor about portions of
tno nurratlvo poem which gives a namo to tho
volume, although it was plainly written without
a sufficient knowledge of tho sceno nnd tho opooh
in which the actiou is supposed to havo taken
placo-Italy In the mlddlo ages. This, of courso,
hampered the freedom of tho writer, robbed tho
work of color, and offends tho critical sensn of
thoroader. Even moro serious lack of knowl
edge ot tho niceties of tho English language and
of poetio form aro detectablo in this poem aud
moro frequently In tho shorter poems, many of
which aro quite deficient in rhythm and wonder
fully obscure in meaning. But on tho wholo tho
author reveals tho possession of so much real
poetic talent that tho faults of hor verso as
shown In this volume may bo overlooked in tho
expectation that her devotion to tho muso will
insplro her to bring a larger and liner knowledge
of tho technique of her art to tho fashioning of

of the dead of tho Episcopal Church was read

anyway?" exclaimed tho serlbo. "Why, let mo

"You see It is J. C. S. Blackburn, so make it

was a pretty good forecast for a man entirely
unknown to fame, except in his own district.
