These precious silks will be draped in glass cases and on tables so that you may have a comprehensive view of them. First, we must turn back to a night in Paris the 24th of June when representatives of all the world gathered at the Hal du Grand Prix a l'Opera; about which we quote from the Paris Edition of the New York Herald: "The event proved to be the most magnificent and gorgeous spectacle ever seen in the Opera. "It was much more than u mere ball, there being scenes of splendor surpassing tho wildest dreams. It was rep resentative of a reception in the 18th Century given by I ho Doge at Venice for the Persian Embassy. Leading artistes of the Opera und the Comedie-Francaise, dressed in most wonderful Venetian and Persian costumes, took part in the grand entree and the various tableaux. "The floor of the Opera was transformed into a hall of honor in the Doce's Palace. All the loges weret decor ated with Venetian and Persian banners and gorgeously embroidered fabrics and filled with beautiful I'erslun and Venetian women in 'costumes of gold and silver." . . On that night evefcy one. knew that the gorgeous bilks which France had made for this occasion would he made the keynote of the new Fashions by the dress makers of Paris.
