The best stylo cf bodice for washing
dressos now is the blouse, with embroid?
ered yoke plastron or pelerine collar,
and tho crossed bodice with habit shirt
stomacher and deep-worked culfs. There
are very pretty blouses partly tucked,
partly plaited and crossed over on ono
side*. Tbo skirts are made np exactly
in the same way as thoso of woolen and
other fabrics. When the blouse or
bodice is trimmed with embroidery tbo

side to answor. Somotiipos the skirt i?
niado with a straight plaited front and
two or three broad plaits at the side,
with a band of embroidery laid on earl:,
which has :i good offoct.
Tho most fashionable stylos for chil?
dren's dresses arc copies, modified in?
deed in some degree, of thoso worn by
their oldors. Tho bodices are either
shaped like loeso blouses, or are short
waistcd and sewn to the skirt, which is
nevor draped, but mounted with plaits
and gat:, ors. A dross which is both
pretty and useful is cut of two pieces of
stulf merely mounted on tho ombroid
ored yoke. Scarcoly a dross for girls
is seen now without a ribbon-sash and
bows, and the corselet bands coming
from beneath tho arms arc most becom?
ing to their slim, uniformed flguros.
Retter dressos for girls of six years and
upward aro made of plain and shot pop?
lins, flowered popelinottes, and mousso
lines dolaine, light woolen bnigos em?

and a number of othor plain and figured
fabrics in silk, wool and cotton,
A favorite trimming still continues to

like applique ombroidery to trim tho
whole of tho front breadth, which is then
loft almost plain hut laid inclose plaits*

ore is a vein of soft brown hematite
feet wide and assaying 50 percent, me?
tallic iron. And the coal prospects are
tine?two shafts having' been sunk, one
20 and the other S3 feet, through solid

a mineral spring, which the analysis of

markable curative powers for all kidney
troubles, especially for diabetes. The
enormous quantity of coal and ore that
will be required foi the large number of
I furnaces and other industrial plantain
