The Arcade Opening-.
T'ne fall and spring opening days at the
Arcade are events looked forward to with a
great deal of pleasure l the ladies of lhi
city, as there is always an elegant display of
dress goods and millinery for them to feast
their eyes upon. Thursday was tin. day
fixed upon by the enterprising gentlemen
who preside over the of i his mammoth
institution to display their fall stock
of goods, ami when the doors were thrown
open in the morning the ladies began to
gather in, and in a short time the house
was filled with an eager throng, purchasing
bonnets, selecting dress patterns, and
admiring the display.
The show windows were beautifully
dressed with plain, grosu'rain, and brocaded
silk, and embosed velvet dress good-, in
terra cotta, cadet blue, mid other new colors,
and the shelves on either side were filled
with handsome dress goods, such as silks
satins, poplins, empress cloths, etc., all din-playing
the exquisite taste, as a dtcoiative
artist, of Mr. Will O'Donnell. In thecentre
of the room were pyramids of haukerchiefs
arranged in the mon attractive manner,
and further back the staple goods' and
notions were arranged so as to present
a pleasing effect.

Irotn early in the morning until late in the
evening. The difi'erent styles, ol hats and
bonnets on exhibition were very nunieious,
and exceedingly handsome, being fully
equal to anything of the kind ever seen in
much larger cities. It would be useless to
attempt a description of them, (or they were
simply immense, and the ladies who have
not already been need only step in there today
to be convinced that the ladies in charge
know how to select a stock of goods to suit
A full line of the stylo cloaks were
also on exhibition together with some of the
mo.it elegant goodf (rom which to construct
them, and all arranged in a very artistic
Many of the decorations still remain, and
