A number of-now Frenich tea-gowns are

Striped and figured gauzes over col..

For morning wear the loading tailors
are makin'g round skirts of striped

that a woman in this style of skirt dtoes
not resemble a maypole, as the stripes
usually elongae to a ssed extent. A bove
the tai lor-bu lit skirt a tight-titting twil
cost is worn, double breasted,' but cut
out from- the threat mid way to the waist,
for the purpose of exposing to view a
jIauntywhite dickey. Around the collar
is tied a white silk cravat knotted in the
sallor fashion and fixed in plaoe by a
horseshoe pin.. Plain straw hats of the
color of theo dress are worn with these
morning dresses, with rather broad
brims, rolled round and bound with

Coronets of flowers and beads that are

THE NEWS AND OIUnRAR HURNAU, 1
108 MAmn tr3T. COLuMBIA. July 2.
The flood did not, up to noon to-day
attain by eight feet the maximum hei ht
of the May freshet and yet the wator
had covered nearly all the earth with
which the crevasse had been partially
filled and had flowed into the Canal.
This "backwater" had, however, no
force to wash away the banks, and the
newly placed earth, not being subjected
to the ravages of a current, has been dis
solved only to an insignifloant degree.
The check dam erected across the
mouth of the Canal and protected by a
spur jetty of rook from the force of the
current, held its own admirably, and
when visited at noon to-day was eight
or nine feet above the level of the river.
Manager Anderson still has a large
force of convicts at work heigtoning
and broadening this dam, and the Canal
is considered quite safe from tho inroads
of a current.
As already stated, the upper section
of the Canal contains a quantity of water
which has been backed into it at the old
water-works. There is a railway em
bankment across the Canal at these
works which prevents the water from
flowing to the foot of the Canal. But
one of the lower breaks has let in a good
deal of water which is collected at the
Gervais street end. The placidity of. this
invasion is, however, a guarantee that
the breaches in the banks will not be
The river continued to rise last night
and this morning reached a height of
twenty. three feet above low water, or
within ten feet of the highest point in
the May flood. It then receded about
eighteen inches, but before noon was
again rising and had recovered this de
cline. It does not seem probable that it
will get much higher, as the up-country
rains were not as heavy as in May.
It ceased raining here early this morn
