Ret GUit Edgae Tanilourse dspeves OISIIE1O1D NOTES. the Dress Fabrics Most Fash ionable Just at Present. Materials for Children's Wear-The favorite Laces-The Latest in the Way of Bonnets, Buttons, IEto. The ohibl beauty and charm of spring lie In the change of color and scene, the coming to life again of all that has lain dormant and dead through the winter. Season after season nature assumes the same robe, and never does her lovely garb become tiresome and monoton ous, With human heings it is so widely dirfer snt-a desire for change-a onnstant demand for novelty Is made-and human Ingenuity Is often sorely taxed ti meetthe want. Now, when the trees are robing themselves afresh, th-r are perfumed with scent and fragrance, and the gardens,. bowers of roses, our winter garments become distasteful, out of place with our sur roundings, and we inspeet new goods and com ment over the coming fashions with a keeneense of enJoyment. Those that are shown eertainly givsettisfaction as to beauty and becoming ness, and the diffiulty n making selection lies in the way of being bewildered with the wealth of beauty before us. cutton foulards. mortice clothe, percales and ginghams stand pre-eminent for use and beauty. The percales come in printed flgures, floral de.igns and oriental patterns. Cambrice of the marrlce class are shown In daik. light and ntl dtum ehades. They ate to be sueu in Perslan trive, rich with oriental design, ,r soattered ov-r with tiny blOns:.me n exquisite combination. No m tter how Inexpen'lv*t the tmaterial, the colors are most all fast, and more dainty. besutiful or ae rviceab'e dreses cannot wTllbe had. The mornings are helomnlug sug petive of warmth, ond heavy and e xenulve dre'ees can be laid aeide. It is a d batable pi1atter whether lavish and expen'Ivy morning drsses are ever in goad taste, The morning wutd certainly eemun to suggest the time when display and elegance are less needed, The ptlett cotton tabtlt. are very desirable for house resses, antd wh,.n made tadily, the icolor.a chuben with iudglmeltt, pro duce a really tretty elegant dr oss. For house wear the Priuces will b-I the fvrlite style. It can he made perf'ttl plalo, or with ruiB is for sleeve and lkltrt: vesae and p, ekAts can te add ed to give more dressiness. Bibbn bowe make great improvement, and the ribbon used may either m atOh or contrast with the clore of the dress. The pretty ans artistic Itdelso prevt. lent during the past season of combinltg lib bons of dtiierent colors will be still popular. As bunting is to be seen in all t hu saw shades. the fact must be taken as on evidence of its odntinued popularity. oapphire, pale yellow. pale blue and oream color are to be had, and are the preferred sb.ldes. Blank, of couise, ie faeboanbles but eting essentially genteel, lady-like and b'noming, black can defy fash ion. For all black dresses ljt seems to be the acc eted trimmung, and certainly stands unrl valed for beauty and elegance. The richest grenadlnes have satin bars, dote, squares flowers of velvet, etc,, the around is an open mesh, upon which these figures are laid, and the handsome black grenadine finds itself duplicated in all the new shadeer, peacock or gendarme blue looking es eolally lovely In contraut with the old gold. near which it ls seen. White and gold, black and pink. tik and olive, white and blu. are some of the new com binations. Not only in the cotllest gords, but also in those of medium prices, are the new shades Introduced. onulards are shown In polka dota, estlipd, anid fligured, the ground of dark color, in cijootlate-the new shades, The arenadlpes will be worn over satin skirts of the in the making of dre es two points are de oldedly ascertained. 'Te walking-dress re tains all its popularity, and will be us d for thin summer dresses as it has been for heavier goods. Be ques and overskirts are still pre. vailing ideas, and are of numerous models. Tht polonaise has steadily won its wai to favor, and will be much used during the spring. The models are llaghtly different from those for merly used when the poloualse style of over dress Is made; it can be at'ached to the skirt by being tacked where it is draped. With the revival of belts and round wlast the eurplice waist Is brought to the front. They are pretty and becoming, especially for evenin wt ar. An adjusitable train to be worn wit, the short street dress, converting it into an evening tol lette is one of the latest of fashion designsu. STYKsB FOR lGIIt., For little girls there are as many new styles as for mamma. The sailor a stum *, always pop ular, will be much worn. with certain improve ments and modiflcations. lkilrts are made narrower than formerly, and the top of the shirt is shirred in deretence to the prevlling rage for shirring, which amounts almost to a mania, The blouse is cut longer a' d not so full as in the older oatterns, adding both to comfort and appearance. The sailor dress will be made in percales, lawns, glnhamse. as well as in heavier materials. With the sall.r cos tume, of course belongs the sailor hat. The "Princess" Is always a favorite, and will be quite as much in vogue for children as ever. There are iunumerable wars of draping and trimming, which present too much same ness. Basques with vests 'ill be worn by the Ilttle folks, and some of the new tatterns intended for tfheir use are ,lilte enticng in their beauty. Embroiderles and laces will both be used for trimming on woolen goods equally with ginghams asu lawns, white or colored, depondlin on Individual pre ference. Tho belief is slow v but surely gain ing ground that the pre'sent scanty. It classic, mode of dressing hlis had its day, and a fuller style will be Inaugurateil. The revolulion wi 'i have to be slow to acolstom the eye to the change, but Fashion decrees that the change must be made, and that the lime when one old dress made on the full square pilaa could al most be remodeled in'o two Is passing away. and more material will be needed than here tofore, a fact worth rem,'mblnlug in buying. that it is better to havw an extra yard or two laid away for future use. . EMiROIDERIa AND LACES. The pretty Hamburg embroideries are to be introduced wilt casnmere effects. Of course the colors will be fast, and the effect on white and wash goods will be startlitn and beaulliful. The old-fashioned aulure lace, which has been crowded out of the market for some time ast, is rapidly regaining favor, and those who have had it laid away may safely briig the treasure to light once more, rejoicing in the possessilon of hadsome lace. Point Languedoo, Mallues, Breton and point d'esprit are used for dressy occasions and for young ladies, Point d'Alencon for those more advanced in years: Torchen and Smyrna, with Hamburg edging, being much used for trim ming underwear. BONNETR. In bonnets very little ccn be said. The Indl eat'ons point teat as large bonnets were worn duringthe winter. the snapes will berather large for the sprieg Laces and flowers will be freely used for trtmmings, more so than feath ers. All the brightest shades of colors will be in request. Wild flowers are the f ,nol at pres ent, buttercups being one of the nov sltes. Roses are highly colored. Hyacinths, violets and poppies will be classed among the favor ites. ETCETERA. In buttons, the round shape is gradually ob tahing preference, as It it is found to be more ooviventbt..The deslpins a.ecutstantiy Increas lug. and the cost of some of the handsome types fabulous. Metal buttons are embellished and engraveu with great care. Among the more moderate priced buttons. are crochet buttons covered with flae silk net ting in cashmere combinations. As the taste for absurdities prevails in jewel ry. buttons, it is said, will appear among the novelties of spring in the form of frogs, lizards. birds, toads, etc. THE REPUBLICAN CITY COM MITTEE.
