CHANGE IS THU FASHIOJTS.-A Paris
correspondent of the London '-Index gives
notice of some curious, a?d, as he says,
radical changes in ladies' dress, in the most
fashionable circles of the centre of fashion'.1
Her descriptions will be', sure to interest
many of our lady readers. Sh*e writes: -t
Ia ladies' evening toilets it is impossible
not to perceive a decided tendency toward
a radical change.- This change, d*f reform,
is as yet confined to the very elite o?
fashionable society, but, by a well known
and invariable law, wtil'doubtless extend iii
another season or two to ali classes that
pr?tend "to dress, and not merely to be.
clothed. At Compiegne this wiuter, one
might have fancied one's self at the Court
of the Empress J.osophine, so c!os<; was,
the imitation to the fashion of tte first
Empress. Ciin?linet? were discarded, the
skirts being narrow, almost tight; the
waists very short, cut-in the shape of a heart
in front, and supported by broad waistbands
with fancy clasps; the materials were worn
dotted with gold et ?us and bees; fbe hair
' inUfib. raised behind, artistically disposed in a
mass of tiny ringlets^upon the forehead, ?nd
enoircled by.a diadem of raassire' gold .01

long ear-rings, and glores coming fur over

FOOD VOR. WEAK STOMACHS.- -IO the
Memoirs of ?ount Segur, vol. 1, page 168?'
there is the foll? wing anecdote: My mother
(the Counted'* dc Segur) being asked by
voltaire respecting her health, told hi rb
that the most najafitj filing she had srose
from the decay of her stomach and the
difficulty of finding any kiud of aliment
that it could bear. Voltaire, by way of
consolation, assured-her that he .was once
for nearly a year iii the same state, and
believed to bev incurable, but that, neverthe?
less, a very simple yemedy bad restored
him. It consisted ia tak...g no other
nourishment than yolks of egg, beaten up
with the flour? 6f potatoes and water.
Though this circumstance*took place as far
back as fifty years ago, aud respected so
extraordinary a personage as Voltaire, it
is astonishing bow little it is known, and
how rarely the remedy has been practiced.
Its efficacy, however, in case of dlbility, can?
not be questioned, and the following is. the
.node ot" preparing this valuable - article of
food, as recommended by Sir John Sinclair:
Receipt-Beat up an egg in a bowl, and then
add six table-spoonfuls of cold water, mix?
ing the whole well together; then'add two
table-spoonfuls of the farina of potatoes, tc
be mixed thoroughly with the liquor in tho'
bowl. Then pour in as much boiling water
as will convert the .whole into jelly, and
mix it well. It may be taken^either alone, or
with the addition of a little nailk-?and moist
or best sugar, not only for breakfast, but
ia cases of great stdhiachic debility, or . in
consumptive disorder?, at the other meals.
The dish is light, easily digested, extremely
whoresurae and nourishing. Bread or biscuit
may be taken with it as the stora?Vj gits
