married daughter will appear during the
winter in sevoral,. floral costumes, the
dresses always short, as is deemed ap.
propriate for dancing. One of those cos

a sticcelsitn of short satin roso-colored
skirts falling ovdi' each other like the
petals of the ,flower after which it is
namod. Another is the Eglantino Or
yellow sweet-briar roso-the potals few.
No underskirts are to be worn with this,
as :the "slimpsy" look is very much
sought after. Gonorally, erape or tulle or
some kind of transparent tissuo is worn
over the satin, and softens its brilliancy
and given. it richness too by giving it
depth. It is imperativo that this gauze
be of the sane color, and shado of the
satin beneath it. Sometimes it is put on
puff&d, or in- the form of flounces, the
satin showing between them, but oftenor
by way of a long tunic which is variously
draped by always forming a bunch at

are called "Ori-itals." 'The material is

or than the actual heel of the

is a source of much mischief. In
the first place, it throws the cen

forward, that a free and graceful.

Secondly, there being no firm sup
port to the hool, ladies are very
apt to twist the ankle suddenly
by overbalancing themnsolves; and
this is not only bad in itself, but
the fear of its occuroneo makes
them assumo a timid, mincing
gait. And, thirdly, the effect of
driving the foot constantly for

piroduco a very ugly and painful
distortion of the great toe joint.

produced by tight stays and crip
