bo particularly used, with many now ef?

Will be held together by buttonsand cords,
tho space botwoon being Idled by Qat pan?

ery or applications. Sometimes the panels
are of plaited silk, but this is in gowns of
comparatively light weight.
Skirts plaited or gathered at tlio top
should bo avoided except by slender wom?
en unless tho skirt is made of very thin
goods. In tho heavy materials for lull
and winter wear such fullness is too cum?
brous for n robust figure.

around tho foot with three clusters of nar?
row bunds of silver galloon. The close
bodice, which has tl slight basque, is em?

Drisht Plaids For Children?Colored Stock?

The question of school dresses Is ono that
is over ripe for discussion. School gowns
see such hard service and are worn so con?
stantly that they aru by no means joys tor
over, even when they are things of beauty
in the beginning. It is never worth while
to buy Very ozpenslro or delicate goods for
them, because if they are not worn out
they are outgrown In a very short time. It
is of course necessary that they should bo
neat, well made and becoming, but simple
materials, trimmings and styles are best
on every account.
Tho most, suitable plaoc for plaids is on
children, ami bright plaids, whether of the
GRAY CLOTH (JOWN.
kind in which red predominates or of blue
and green, make very pretty little gowns,
especially when trimmed with narrow
black velvet or ribbon In bands or with
black braid. Cashmerennd Henrietta oloth
are also suitable for school wear, and the
heavy wool crepons, In which thero is no
silk Sorge Is perhaps tho most serviceable
of any goods for the purpose, as it endures
sorts of hard usage without being
s, til 1ml. As far as hats are concerned, felt
trimmed with ribbon is always appropri?
ate. Feathers and flowers on school hats
uro out of plnco and soon go to destruction.
Dhick stockings have for many yenrson
joyed universal popularity and have boon
worn by rich and poor nliko. Now an at?
tempt is being math- to introduce white
nnd colored ones again, but it has not as
yet proved successful in America. In
Franco there Is a decided liking for fancy
hosiery, and white stockings with black
