SPKINti MATKItlAI.S-.NKW COsTI'.MES PARA
SOLS. The Icnteti Rluiutn.is 0f tho city lello aro
lixtuilifil l.y vmidna of plaids und stripes.
Sim takes homo mental photographs of
thftn hh they Etirn-l piled liih iu sliop
window and by riilit ns by day, wonders
which him had better choose. Eccmiihc
both will soon bo the rage; one us fashiona
ble us tln; other. Woolens are striped or
plrtidrd silks are ditto, while a compula
tion of the k'inohrtins t Int are ,'"iS t"
sold duriiio; tho next six niontlis, would
leave the "15 ptizzlu" nowhere. Every si.u
of plaid is Been, from small checks up to
lai-e squares, but in stripes there is a in in
ifest aver.iion to broad ones. In truth they
ilo not appear at nil. yet frequently the ef
fect of broad stripes is given by assem
blages of narrow tines mussed' together.
They rtM lengthwise and cro.-swit-e of
the mu', out I he Matter, called hh in Auld
Lang Syne, tuymlere, will oftener be placed
at intervals in plaitings on the costume
than dnped across. This, at least, will be
the case in woolens where a combination
of pluin material is a necessity, ho much so
that many are bronght out in double
widths half plain anil half striped or
plaided. As a finish fur ginghams, liow
pver, we have the new Cash embroideries,
which cunningly wrought in checks with
Lincy colored edges, are the prettiest trim
mings imaginable. They will be im
mensely popular not only for adults but
for children, since they are beautifully fine
in texture and font in color. Cotton satins,
though not put upon the market in such
overwhelmim quantities as ginghams, will
be very fauhioimblc. Theiit an: stamped in
small flowers, closely covering tho surl'iice
and they likewisu will be trimmed with
Cash embroideries quite as delicate and iu
as durable colorings as those intended for
ginghams. Here, of course, the embroider
ies are designed to correspond.
Ovetskirst are quite as fashionable as
ever perhaps more so, now that light
woolens and cottons aro to bo made up,
and one of the prettiest amojig new designs
is the Lotella, composed of a long tablier
dtapod in gathers ut the sides and a rather
bouffant drapery at the back. The I mo
gene w aist having a surplice drapery on
ti e front, shirred back and plaited basque
skirt would combine prettily. Another
novelty in basque io the Perdita, which is
tight titling, ornamented with folds on the
front ami sides, and the hack pieces scpar
ated below the waist disclosing n fun plait
ing. The Pilgrimage costume is now very
fashionable, and one lately made for Marie
Roye is in dark blue camel's hair. Th
gored walking skirt is tnmiucd with a
flounce arranged in clustered plaits; a polo
liaise with a flat Wattean plait forms the
drapery in the back of the skirt ami a cape
with collar und lacing with cords in the
back and on the shoulders gives a fiuih
uuicr new spring ami summer costumes
are finely illustrated in Lord ami Taylor's
catalogue with prices ami inscriptions. Of
course there are other departments, such as
shoes, millinery, household linen, etc., that
merit attention; and as a feature introduce!
this season, we nnd a series of fashion arti
cles giving the latest information in each
special line. It is indeed, like a fashion
magazine sent without charge.
llo.NNKTS AND PAUASOI.S.
The most essential quality of the new
bonnet is yellowness. White straws arc
quite out of date, ami black also aro in a
minority, but all the yellow str.iws, such as
Tuscan leghorn, Uelgitn or Neopolitan
will be very fashionable. As for open
work and fancy straws, there is no end, but
these latter styles are usually in close cot
t.tgeor poke shapes while the hats with
wide, fancifully turned brims are of close
woven straw. Ribbons are plaided and
striped to match dresses.
Til K l'AUASOt,
is now a matter of gieat moment and quilt
as importance as the new bonnet. Roth,
of course, must be in accordance, so we
find parasols all'ected by all the new striped
and plaided ideas. The Princess and the
Dutchess are the two leading styles; the
former showing the outer covering, com
posed of two pieces : the latter, of three.
Ileiiutiful nnd varied results aro brought
around by contrasts between tlio- different
pieces, and yet greater variety is given by
alternations of color in the linings, which
aro set behind the ribs of which twelve is
now the stylish number. Rut unique para
sols hsvo linings of one color throughout,
except ono panel which of a contrasting
color has painted on ita bird or animal
a stork, swui, elephant, monkey, etc.
Favorite ornamentations aro jet or steel
brads or Spanish lace, sewn down bo tight
ly as to resemblo lino embroidery. Other
parasols aro almost covered with rufllesof
narrow Spanish lace, or a single fall of
wider may finish the edges. Rut many
handsome parasols aro without edging of
are considered quito the thing in tho way
of marking. Tho texture is very flno and
the prettiest initial letters in fast Turkey
red are woven on them. These are cut off
as desired and placed on underclothing or
household linen. The letters are of dif
ferent sizes; a single letter can bo scwen on
or the entire name, or there tuny be a hand
some monogram. Lucy Carter.

NEW SEIUES-NO. 232
A Groat Invention,
A man living near Rloomfield, N. J.,
litis contrived an arrangement, says tho
New York Sun, by tho use of which lie
is enabled to get an hour or more of
extra sleep in the morning, nnd in oth
er ways ho finds it of great benefit. Iu
many ways it takes the place of a do
mestic: servant. Tho gentleman has
thought out anil put into practical
working an idea that occurred to him
about a year ngo. lie is awakened in
the morning by a shrill whistle. Ho at
once gets out of bed, for he knows what
that whistle means. It tells him that
all is ready for him to get breakfast.
He dresses and goes into tho kitchen,
and there he tinds a bright, fresh fire,
a teakettle full of boiling water, and
other ronvenicne.es for preparing his
morning meal. All this is accomplished
by means of an alarm clock with
Weights, a piece of wire, a sheet of
sand-paper, and some matches. Paper,
wood and coal are put into the grate of
his cooking stove, and a teakettle filled
with water, and having a tiny whistle
fitted into tho nozzle of the kettle, is
plaeod on the stove. By setting the
alarm iu the clock ho can have a lire at
anytime, ho wishes. When the alarm
in the clock goes oil", a weight falls and
hits the wire; the wire moves and
scrapes the matches fastened to it on
the sandpaper; the matches light tho
paper iu the stove, the paper lights tho
wood ami coal, ami soon a firo is under
way. In a little while the water in the
teakettle boils, and then tho tiny whis
tle gives the note of warning that every
thing is ready and it is time to get up.
"Simple thing, and yet what a com
fort it is." the inventor says. "There
is no getting up for me now an hour be
fore breakfast, losing that amount of
sleep, and then waiting around for
breakfast. The arrangement cosU next
to nothing, and it is as trustworthy as
anything in this world. I have not had
it patented yet. Some persons adviso
