Will it do t-u? Described by tho

In thoabaoncoof Parisian fashions, tho
leading Now York houses aro bringing
out styles of thalr own. In truth, for
several years Paris fashions have had to
bocoMlaarebly modlfled to suit American
taste. Still there are eeneraloutllnes to bo
obaervod. if one would not be old-fash-toned.
The attempt to introduce, trains
again, to sweep the street, has been
frowned down. In truth, very few women
daro tot public opinion so mucii at
defiotno as. to appear on tho street with a
long dress. For evening toilets and
ceremonious occasions, also for carriage
Mr. train dresses are always appropriate.
Ovcr-iklrts aro ns much worn as ever, but
tho shapes aro not so fanciful as formerly;
more regard Is paid to simplicity and
taitefulnt'ii. It Is optional whether they
aro cut with apron fronts or not; many of
tlio newest designs are open uoiu wick
and front. The front should bo cut short,
but the back brodths should bo much
longer and very full. When loopud, tho
tunic should not bo, at tho most, moro
than a quattcr of a yurd shortor than tho

doubtless coino in for thulr sharo of atten
tion. For streot dressef, Iron and gauao
grenadines aro .alogant, and will bo in
vogue as soon as the wonthor is warm.
IJIack Is tho most stylish ; for homo or
evening wear it is tasteful made over a

be black silk.
For trimmings, rutlles and flounces will
