THE ART OP DRESSING.
Instruction! to Women of Taste on Becoming
Summer Fashions Sir. Frank Leslie

IWKITTEr TOE TBI CISFJLTCB.1
The subject of woman's dress is at present
attracting thought which has never been be
stowed upon it before. This statement may
seem at first glance to be an exaggeration,
and it will be argued that women are now so
for advanced intellectually that they have
less time for, and inclination toward the
vanities of life than formerly when shut out
from so many avenues of pleasure and oc
cupation now freely conceded them; bnt it
must be remembered that dress is now regard
ed as more than a necessity or conceit, it it re
ceiving intelligent thought directed toward
harmonious adaptation to men and conditions.
Formerly a woman obeyed fashion's behest,
though It made her a f right to look upon, and
compelled the sacrifice of all bodily comfort,
while now women stop to ask the question, "Is
this thing consistent with health, comfort and
artistic beauty?" and nothing is more certain
than that the leaders of fashion, the women
who have the time and money to devote to the
study and patronage of art, are now directing
attention toward securing genuine effects in
dress. Not a day passes but I am visited by
some well-known ladv of the beau monde who
assures me that my efforts in behalf of con
sistent dress are warmly endorsed by the
omen who give prestige to styles of clothing
zmpossiDie lor otners 01 less social prominence
Recently I received this interesting request
from a stately dame of marked social influence:
"If possible show in your next number of Dress
a style of ontflt complete for women between
the ages of 3S and 45, which shall 'embody the
absolute principles of health and beauty, a
thousand women of good sense and independ
ent position are ready to adopt such an outfit
and make it fashionable."
COMMON SEKSE IN DBESS.
Is this not significant. To me it seems the
precursor of a reign of common sense and ar
tistic grace which will completely revolutionize
essential clothing, lifting it above the mere
dead level of the commonplace on the one
hand, or the novel and grotesque on the other.
The first steps have been taken which must
lead naturally to consistent dress. The idea
that dress is unimportant (which people of
brain force once affected to believe) has been
disposed of; and we are getting rid of the be
lief also that exaggeration and disproportion
are essential to style. Women are coming to
admit the possession of their different essential
members which to do; it was formerly con
Eidered a vulgarity and the demand for room
In which to breathe and exercise is no longer
regarded as absolutely unreasonable.
The tea-sown has come to stay and encour
age other flowing styles of robes. Look at the
spring walking bodices; at least two-thirds of
the different styles admit full fronts of one
sort or a lother, calculated to more or less dis
guise the sharp line of the bosom which was a
lew years since tne essential reaiure 01 a street
costume strictly en regie.
And now that women are beginning to realize
that flesh must go somewhere, and to admit
that the general distribution to waist, and hips,
and shoulders is more pleasing by far than the
exaggeration of either the hip or shoulders for
the mere effect of a rednced waist line, the out
look for a reign of healthful and graceful dress
was never better than at present. And Paris,
too, arrays herself on our side by pronouncing
against the bustle, that monstrosity which has
converted woman into an upright dromedary
for several years. There can be no doubt
whatever bnt disproportion and discord in
dress are about t be relegated to obscurity,
and grace and individuality will be the order
of the day.
There is an immense field for young and as
pirlng artists, for the future dressmaker must
be more than a journeyman and seamstress;
she must have ideas and intelligent adapta
tion. ELEGANT AND BECOMING ATTIBE.
Believing, as I do, that beauty is of supreme
importance, I should advise every woman who
has the leisure for it to devote at least one hour
daily to the study of anatomical proportion, of
harmonious development, and finally to under
standing the relation between the personal
qualities of shape and style and their further
relation to cut, form and coloring.
In short, no question can be of much more
importance to women of leisure, at least, than
the question of how to put themselves en rap
port with the harmonies of universal nature.
Anne Jennbss Miller,
Editor of Dress.
The most becoming dress is that (on general
principles) which shows the woman to the best
advantage not that whieh makes the woman
the lay figure for the dress. The "pretty"
dress is not therefore, and necessarily, the be
coming dress. Jenny June.
In a letter the late Mary Louise Booth, for
many years editor of .Harper" Bazar, touched
on the art of dress in the following lines which,
have not been printed:
"The fine art of dress, in my opinion, is to
give the impression of an elegant and har
monious tout ensemble, not one of the details
of which Is so conspicuous as to dwell In the
memory of the beholder. To do this, one must
carefully study his or her individual physiog
nomy, and perfectly adapt the dress thereto,
as well as to the occasion on which it is worn.
A single showy bit will mar the otherwise
faultless morning attire, at any negligee ap
pearance will spoil the most beautiful evening
toilet. How to dress becomingly is an art
which cannot be taught in a lesson; I am in
clined, indeed, to think that it cannot be easi
ly acq aired by study, but must be in parts in
structive." The modifications in ladles' dress, as exem
plified in the spring and summer styles, are
somewhat more marked this season than usual.
Heretofore, the new fashions have specially
favored slender figures; but those at present
coming in are less bouffant, and will afford to
ladles tending to embonpoint a better oppor
tunity for the display of costumes at once ele
gant and Decoming. Slight women can, of
course, select plaids and large figures; while
stouter ones appear to better advantage
in plain or striped materials, which give grace
and compactness to the lines of the form.

CAPTAIB JONES HONORED.
A Handsome Testimonial Presented to a
Braddock Comrado In the Prcsenes of a
Large Concourse of People General
News and Notes of Interest to Veterans
The Comlm National Encampment.
A large concourse of people, embracing many
of the representative people of Braddock,
Grand Army men, and many ladies, completely
filled Lytle's Opera House in Braddock on Fri
day evening. The gathering was ostensibly
for the pnrposo of holding a fraternal open
meeting, but the real and principal object was
apparent when the meeting was fairly under
way. After Comrade J. F. Denniston, who
ably presided, opened the exercises,
and the Industrial Quartet rendered
a selection, Comrade A. P. Burchfleld stepped
forward, and in a neat speech presented
to Captain W. R, Jones a beautiful piece of
statuary on behalf of the comrades of the Penn
sylvania Department as a testimonial to Com
rade Jones as a warm-hearted fnendofthe
soldier and for his servioes as Past Senior Vice
Department Commander. The Captain was
visibly affected, and replied to the presenta
tion speech of Comrade Burchfleld in a feeling
Very eloquent remarks were made by com
rades William Asbworth, Rev. T. N. Boyle,
Dr. H. K. Beatty. H. H. Bengough and Com
mander John L. Jone,of the Braddock post,No.
18L The Industrial Quartet sang several
patriotic national songs during the evening.
The present to Comrade Jones is a handsome
piece of Italian marble, representing an armed
hunter on the lookout for game. It is full of
action and Is a work of art In the fullest sense
of the word. It stands 21 inches high and is
about 13 inches broad, was Imported from Italy
by the firm of Wattles &. Sheafer, from whom
it was purchased, and is one of the finest pieces
of work of Its kind ever brought to this coun
try. Among the prominent visiting comrades from
this city were J. B. Eaton, of Post 8; O. M. Head,
of Post 259, and Hodgdon McCune, of Post 643.
Post 643 was well represented. Great credit is
due Comrade Thomas R. Boss, who has had
charge of the affair from its inception. A very
pleasant evening was spent by all present.
The Commander in Chiefs Appeal.
Another strong appeal for a 1-cent rate to
Milwaukee has been made by Commander In
Chief Warner to the railroads. The refusal to
grant this rate is not in keeping with the prom
ises distinctly made in order to induce the
holding of the Encampment at Milwaukee.
Had these promises not been made the Encamp
ment would not have been held at Milwaukee.
There is but one reason why the place of meet
ing should not be changed to some other city:
Consideration for the comrades and people of
.rauw&uKee who nave oone so nooiy in prepar
ing for the what was to have been great
meeting. It will, of course, be a great meeting
anyhow, but not great in numbers, as not ono
half, no, not one-quarter of the people will go
that would were a satisfactory rate given. The
appeal of the Commander in Chief is appended:
Heabquabtebs a. A. K., )

To the Passenger and Traffic Associations of the
I have the honor once more to bring to your at
tention the fact that unless a rate of one cent per
mile can be agreed oa by the various Traffic Asso
ciations, it will s erlontiy cripple the attendance of
old soldiers at the Milwaukee Kncampment in
August next. When the Encampment was located
for this year at Milwaukee. Wis., it was done on
the faith of promises made that the railroad fares
should not exceed the rate of one cent per mile
traveled, the same as was given by the various
railroads to the Columbus Lncampment last vear.
It has come to the knowledge or .National Head
quarters O. A. K. that discriminations have been
made, and are still being made, by the railroad
companies In favor of certain civic organizations,
allowing them a lower rate or fare to their re
unions man is now nxeo lor t&osewnorisaea tneu

I therefore earnestly ask of you that you will not
let this appeal to give the old veteran a chance to
once more meet with his comrades (many of whom
are obliged to lay aside the money required to pay
this railroad fare from the pittance of a pension
received from the Government) go unheeded, but
that you will favor me with an early and affirma

Assistant Secretary Bussey has returned a
decision in the case of Richard Whiting, late of
Company C, Thirty-third Missouri. The claim
ant was wounded at Tupelo, Miss., July 14, 1S64,
and while lying on the field of battle in a help
less condition received a sunstroke which soon
after discharge caused chronic nervous prostra
tion and impairment of mind, resulting in 1871
in imbecility. The wife and guardian of the
claimant filed an application for pension in
1SS3, which was granted, the rate being fixed at
S24 per month. Subsequently, in 1885, the rate
of pension was increased to $50 per month. The
claim came before Assistant Secretary Bussey
upon an appeal filed by the pensioner's wife
and guardian, the-ground of contention being
that the pension should have begun at the date
of the pensioner's discharge, instead of the
date of the filing, inasmuch as the limitation of
the arrears act excepts from its operation all
claims in behalf of insane persons. On this
ground Mr. Bussey allows arrears from the
date of discharge. The Assistant Secretary de
cided that claimant's dlsabdities entitle him
also to a re-ratlng and increase of pension
under the acts of 1872, 1874 and 1880, the final
rating being 72 per month from June 1 18S0.

THE EXPENSE OF 'EXISTENCE ABE0AD
tWRITTSK VOR THE DISFATCXL1
Whether it is that the restless American
nature becomes dissatisfied, for the time being,
with its surroundings, or desires to wander
further afield than the vrlde extent of territory
over which the great American eagle spreads
its wings, certain it is that the number of Pitts
burg people who travel eastward, making Eu
rope their destination, becomes yearly greater, '
and already indications are not wanting that
this season the tide of travel, setting probably
in the direction of Paris, will be stronger than
ever. It is good that those who, by good
fortune, can manage it should shake them free
from the shackles of business or the dull rou
tine of dally toil, and refreshing the mind,
while recuperating the body, amid fresh scenes
and new glimpses of life, return after the holi
day with invigorated zest forthe bustle and
strife of business.
During the time approaching when mills will
be shut down and business more or less stag
nant, the idea of vacation will naturally rise to
the mind and long and earnest discussions will
ensue in the family circle as to the possibility
of taking in new ground not hitherto attempted.
Longing eyes will be turned in the direction of
Paris and the attractions of the Exposition
may prove too many for those who have not yet
summoned up their courage to the sticking
point of undertaking an ocean trip. The few
hints and suggestions set forth in the follow
ing, and in which the old traveler will find
nothing new, may be of some service to those
who may contemplate an initial voyage across
Primarily, then, as to the different routes by
which Paris mav be reached. There is ample
choice. From New York to Antwerp the time
is 11 days, and this line may be selected by
some, as it affords an opportunity of seeing, in
the Belgian town, the celebrated Cathedral,
containing some of Ruben's masterpieces, and
of listening to its famous chimes. ,
ONE WAT OP GOING.
From this the journey to Paris is accom
plished in six hours, and a stop over at Brus
sels, frequently called the "Lesser Paris," will
prepare the traveler for the greater mag
nificence of the Queen of the Universe. Then
there is the line to Rotterdam, Holland, time
ten days, Paris, nine hours; and the French
line to Havre conveys the touristto this quaint,
old-fashioned Norman town within eight days
after leaving New York, Paris being reached
in 4 hours along the picturesque valley of the
Seine. From Havre a run across the bay to
Trouville, one of the most fashionable of
French watering places, will afford an agree
able relaxation and opportunity of comparl.
son of it with Narragansett Pier and Long
Branch. Finally, there is the line to Southampton,
seven hours distant from Havre, and the many
lines terminating at Liverpool, from which
port the 200 miles, to London may be covered in
lire hours, and thence the journey to the
French capital accomplished by several routes,
ranging in time from 8 to 10 hours. As a
matter of information the approximate cost of
these routes is appended below.

The cost of the round trip Is twice as much,
less 1U per cent. Having decided on the route
the next matter of importance is to arrange for
a supply of money, and this is best accom
plished by obtaining through your banker a
circular letter of credit for the required
amount. It is best to have it drawn on London
instead of Paris, as the exchange favors the
This is infinitely preferable to carrying notes
or gold, as either may be stolen and used, while
the owner alone can draw on the letter of
credit, and drafts made on It just as required.
The traveler should also procure a passport
from the State Denartment at Washington, as
it will be very useful in identifying tne owner
and save him, perhaps, a little trouble should
the French police take him for some one else
on whom they bad been requested to bestow a
little polite attention. The less baggage a
traveler takes with him the greater will be his
peace of mind, and be should see that his
cabin trunk is so shallow as to fit under his
bunk, else be will find his wife or his cabin
mates ardently wishing he bad forgotten to
come on board.
WATCH THE BAGGAGE.
On the French and' Belgian railways each
passenger's allowance ot free baggage is SO
pounds: he will find it is carefully weighed and
that he is charged for every ounce of excess at
about 5 cents per pound. It is not of infrequent
occurrence with unwary travelers on the Conti
nent to find themselves billed for excess to the
cost of their own transportation. Therefore,
prospective travelers, cut down your paraphe
rnalia to the lowest limit. Neither should you
forget that your trunks will be subjected to a
rigid inquisition on landing; and If you propose
to take along a supply of cigars or a box or so
ot the fragranttbougbt.lnspiringtoby,take care
that you break-them, else at the English ports
you will be required to pay a duty of somewhere
about SI 25 per pound, tnough, with regard to
the tobies, it is questionable if the officials
would recognize them as coming under this head
as the duty is demanded only on cigars made
out of tobacco. The six-shooter may be left
behind, as it is not carried there, and it might
be confiscated by the English-anthoritles, who
profess great anxiety for the welfare of their
cousins, and in their opinion it might injure the

have thoroughly familiarized itself with him.
If a porter carries his valise to the cab he will

pocketed with a 'dexterity betokening long
practice, and so on tnroup;h all the grades of
the serving class. A similar sttto of adaptabil
ity to receive will be experienced on the con
tinent, only more so.
A CHOICE OF HOTELS.
Arrived in London, the traveler has the
choice of dozens of hotels at prices from tl 50
per day for a room in the top regions of such
palaces as the Victoria, Grand and Langbam,
down to the modest and quiet, yet comfortable,
smaller hostelries and private boarding houses
and inns in the streets running from the Strand
and Fleet street to the embankment, and in
which good rooms can be had from 75 cents per
dav unward. and board and lodging combined.
served in one's own room, if desired, at from W
to $10 per week, The neighborhood of tha
Strand, embracing the hotels mentioned, is the
most central quarter in which to locate, having
within easy reach the Houses of Parliament,
Government offices and Westminster Abbey
on the one hand, with the theaters 20of which,
are within a radius of a few hundred yards
Oxford aud Regent streets, Piccadilly and
Clubland on the otbor.
The most direct way of reaching Paris is by
way of Havre, the traveler stepping from the
boat into the train, and it he is booked through
he will not be troubled by the customs until ho
reaches his destination at the St. Lazure sta
tion. Here he will make acquaintance with
the gllb-tongued. polite, bnt sometimes pom-
Sous French official.and be directed to enter the
alle desBagages, where the duane or custom
officials will quickly overhaul bis effects In
search of jewelry or cigars (the manufacture
of the latter being a monopoly of the French
Government). He should at once produce his
keys on being requested, as the French dis
play a decided antipathy toward kickers, whom
they will detain on some trivial excuso for an
unlimited period, if tbeyshow any impatience.
Guards wilt be observed at the exits, and no
one can pass them until the customs examina
tion is done with.
Another kind of search, which, where for
eigners aro concerned, is performed by duane
officials is on account of the octroi or munici
pal tax. This is a tax levied on market stuffs,
etc., coming 4nto the city, and is the source
from which the main revenues of the city aro
derived. The traveler will have secured infor
mation as to hotels, etc, from the agents ot the
line at Havre, and gathering up bis baggage,
with the assistance of a few sous and a porter,
be is prepared to be conveyed to his lodgings.
No attention should be paid to the would-be
guides, chevaliers d' Industrie, and other vaga
bonds, who conceive every. stranger to the city
to be their legitimate prey.
A CENTRAL POINT.
The St. Lazare station is in the immediate
neighborhood of such -prominent thorough-
fares as the Boulevard Haussman, Boulevard
desltaliens, Malesherbes, the Chausee d'Antln
and Faubourg St. Honore, and he cannot do
better than select a residence in one or other
of the fine hotels in this section or take np his
abode in furnished lodgings, maisonsmenbless,
in which he will be as private and independent
as if he commanded the whole bouse. It is
necessary, however, when engaging turnlshed
apartments, to observe very carefully the con
dition of everything appertaining toNthe place,
pointing out every Imperfection or damage and
having a complete list ot the furniture made
out, so as to prevent any attempt at imposition
on the part, of the owner when yielding np pos
session. Travelers have been frequently .mulcted in
heavy damages by the French courts on the
plaint of these sharks charging them with
damage to furniture caused or tbelr prede
cessors. A very good room can be had in these
apartment houses atS francs per day (60 cents),
and a room with dressing room adjoining for
about tL About the same figures rule in the
Second-rate hotels. In such hotels as the
Windsor, Bristol and Continental the highest
figure for bedroom and sitting room is from 85
to 87 per day,but in the same hotels and they
ranlc among the best rooms can bo bad from
81 50t A cab nde from the station to any hotel
will cost in a voiture de place or common cab
about 38 cents; after nightfall abont 45 cents,
and in a voiture de remise, or cab of better
class, which are generally hired at a livery
stable, about 38 cents, and 65 cents at night.
Baggage is conveyed on the top ot the
vehicles at a rate of 5 sous (5 cents) for each
piece, and in addition to the fare, the Parisian
cocher invariably receives a pourboir of a few
sous. The traveler will soon recognize, under
its French appellation, the already familiar
"tip." The French cocher is obliged to give
his fare a number, and should anything be left
in the vehicle, it will be found at the Per
fecture of Police. The Parisians never eat
breakfast at the hour customary with us. On
rising they take a cup of cafe an lait and a
roll, and at 12 o'clock eat their breakfast, or
what they term "dejeuner a la f ourcbettc"
Their dinner hour is at any time after 0
in the evening, and generally about 8 o'clock.
But strangers can always get a meal in the
morning at most cafes, though they generally
present a sleepy appearance at that early hour,
nor is it surprising when they have remained
open np to Sand 4 o'clock A. JL
A good breakfast can be hacLfor 3 francs (60
cents) and a first-class dinner for 5 francs.
This includes vin ordinaire, which is served at
every meal without charge, as coffee is here.
The Parisian is seen at his best when seen at
home, and he is at his own fireside 'cbezlui'
when sitting in his favorite cafe, sipping his
coffee or absinthe, or whatever particular bev
erage be affects, playing cards or laughing at
himself or anybody and with .anyone, whiling
away the time until another upheaval of so
ciety causes him to turn his gaze in the direc
tion of the political horizon., ,
The man who cannot eniov himself in Paris
is to be pitied. There are attractions for all.
The artist will regale himself in the Louvre
and stand enraptured before the Yenus of
Milo. The European House, the most mag
nificent structure of its kind in the world, will
find as many admirers without as the rich
melodies within. Various sensations will be
experienced by the conjunction on the island in
the Seine, 'la Cite,' of the Palais de Justice,
Notre Same and the Morgue; the beautiful
Gardens of the Tnllleries will repay many and
many a visit, and some time will be spent at the
Place de la Bastille, where stood at onetime
the notorious prison of the name, and which is
now said to oe the point of greatest traffic,
about 50,000 vehicles passing through in 24bours.
As a matter of expense it may be stated, that
Paris can be very well done, outside 'ot actual
traveling expenses, on 85 per day, and this
would be a fair factor on which to base an esti
mate of the actual outlay necessary for a trip
there and back. F. Jay Kate.

Ticket of Leave Man at
Theater This Week.
Theater patrons are familiar with the fact
that "The Ticket of Leave Man," written by
Tom Taylor, is one of the most interesting
melo-aramas ever presented. It has more
merit in one act than all the modern English
melo-dramas put together. It was not con
structed for the purpose of allowing the star to
give the whole show himself, but allows all In
the company to share the work and applause if
the impersonation be good. The company
which will be here this week is composed of
good people, who are well qualified to give sat
isfaction to the most critical of audiences. The
trials of "poor hunted-down Bob Brierly"
never fail to enlist the sympathies of the people
out front and the clever detective work ot
