The Wev Wight Gown.
For the special enlightenment of
thoso of our young men who contem

ment I lint a decided change has taken
plaee in the manufacture of wedding
night gowns. They arc no longer
made out of bleached homespun as
they were in the early days of the re
public?long before the female form
was bolstered about nnd disfigured
with bustles and false calves and pub
I itutors, wlieii the dear creatures were
estimated at their true value and no.
according to the amount of "fix id's''
they wore. The new night gown,
however, is an improvement on any
thing in that line that our grandmas
wi re accustomed to. Wc quote':
"The material is the sheerest linen
lawn, cut in the princcssc form and
bordered with a straightway flounce,
edged on both sides with German lace.
The*sleeves are coat-shaped, and on
the upper sides are made open by
diagonal insertions of lace and
wrought muslin. Upon the body,
from the shoulder to the waist-line, is
a similar arrangement of insertions
nnd lace, simulating lapels. About,
the neck is a standing collarette,
formed of a lull ruflle Of J ace, a broad
insertion and a lace edge. In such

court. His gn/.c became riveted upon
a group of politicians as tiny walked
up to receive sentence and among the
number be singled out one man whose
bald bead contrasted strangely with
(he kinky, unkempt heads about him.
lie listened intently and upon the
solemn air came lo his cars the fear
li'csscd are they that do his com
tn?n.intents, that they may have right
lo the tree of life, and may enter in
through the gates into the city. For
without are dogs, and sorcerers, and
whoremongers, and inurdji ers, and
idolaters, ami whosoever luveth and
