The season for masquerade parties has re turned, and costumers say the demand is for fanciful costumes copied from French models of the last century, and also for picturesque Oriental dresses; for instance, the Pompadour dresses, the Trianon styles, the French Guard uniform, and the Parisian Jockey suit, with Japanese, Turkish, and India dresses, are pre ferred to the hackneyed Vivandieres, Night and Morning, and other familiar toilettes that ap pear at every bail. The Japanese dress may be readily fashioned from the figures on the craoo paper pictures that are sold in the shops for a few cents. The Polish dress is easily arranged with the help, of a long black velvet polonaise, some jet trimmings, and fur ’ borders. The Spanish lady wears a crimson or a cream-colored silk, with many roses and black lace for garni ture; in her coiffure Is a high comb stuck in on one side, and supporting a lace veil or mantilla, which falls over her shoulders, and is fastened on her breast by a rose. The short Pompadour costume shown at the costumers’ resembles closely the styles now in vogue, and parts of it are found in the wardrobe of most ladies. Thus a short round skirt of black velvet Is the foundation for the handsomest suits shown. It is shaped pre cisely like the walking skirts of velvet now used, and may be made more show by a white lace flounce, which may be put on plain or in gathers, according to fancy, and headed by a band of gay brocaded silk that looks like embroidery. The overdress is of white silk with large bouquets brocaded upon it, and perhaps stripes of blue or rose moire or satin, and the same effect may he given in less expensive gauze or in organdy muslin. This overdress Is a short polonaise with Watteau back, square neck, elbow sleeves,_ and a vest of black velvet like the skirt; the polonaise curves back from the vest, displaying the velvet skirt, and is bunched tip in paniers. The hair is powdered, or else a wig is worn. Long iace mittens reach above the elbow. The stockings are colored silk, and the French heels of (he slippers are gilded. The French Guard dress is very dashing. It has a short round skirt of blue and white striped satin, with a blue satin rovers down each side studded with gilt buttons. The blue satin coat in Louis Quatorze style, with a vest, has broad ‘ collars, cuffs, and pockets of white satin edged With gold braid. A canteen painted in tricolor is suspended from the shoulders, and the white felt bat has the brim turned up in three placed, A jaunty jockey suit has a short white satin skirt with stripes of red velvet down the front and on the lower part of tire back. A great horseshoe of red velvet curves down from the belt in front as a sort of border, and extends across the back; on this are sewed horses’ heads of gray brocade that look like embroidery, also horseshoes of black velvet studded with gilt spangles that look like nail beads. The double-breasted coat is of red vel vet, with white satin rovers, and much white lace for filliug in the open space at the neck. The little jockey cap is of red velvet, with gilt bit, spurs, and horseshoes for ornament. A great deal of gilt cord, braid, and buttons is on this dress, and a pretty little whip is carried in the hand. The boots should be of red mo rocco in high Polish shape. The gypsy dress of Carmen is very -popular this season, also the Tarantula dress ol bright yellow satin with black THE CHICAGO TBIBUHEs SUNDAY., FEBRUARY 2, 1879 SIXTEEN PAGES. and scarlet velvet bands, on which are gypsv hieroglyphics. DOMINOES. The newest dominoes follow the outlines of the figure as closely as It Is possible to do with out disclosing it They are portly fitted in the back bv a middle seam, and wide side forms that gre at least a finger’s length broad.at the waist line on garments meant for ladies of medium size. The fullness of the skirt is then added gradually by cutting the’ seams to slope toward Die ground, instead of adding pleated fullness all in one place. The front is loosely flowing, or else it may he partly fitted to the form by a single dart, or by the long Gnbriclic scams that begin on the shoul ders. The back forms are thought to tit more gracefully when started from the shoulders ra ther than Hie armholes. A pointed hood reach ing to the waist line is usually added, as it drapes the figure slightly, ami conceals it almost as effectually as the’ small “ J.ulu ” masks do the face. Very rich fabrics are used for the dominoes that are put on with Hue lace-trimmed underskirts and worn all the evening; for a domino to be worn over an evening dress part of the evening, and thrown aside when disguise Is no longer sought, simpler stuffs, such as cam bric, silesia, ami alpaca, are used. A good qual ity of glossy black cambric looks very well in a domino i„ the evening, and may be trimmed with pinked frills of eream-ediored cambric; a navy-blue cambric domino has white pinked frills, mid one of cream-color has bands of maroon red stiched upon it; the hoods of these are also lined with the contrasting color used lor the cambric. White cambric dominoes look too much like night-dresses, and those of white alpaca arc too suggestive of shrouds. The nrettiest white domiuocs are of thin striped Turkish goods, like the Algerian staffs of mixed silk and wool; these are made with a burnous fold at the top of the back that-helps to conceal tile wearer. Ladles make for themselves white Swiss dominoes, trimmed with lace, and after ward use t he nice materials for summer dves=cs. These are worn over handsome silk or velvet evening dresses Unit they do noteareto conceal, and the only concealment attempted Is by the mask and the long.scarf of Spanish lace, either black or white, which is thrown over the head ami face and around the-neck and shoulders. JEWELS. AVio York Trlbur.t. Diamonds'have lately so fluctuated in value that these flowers of the mineral kingdom yield precedence to pearls, sapphires, and em eralds. Other slopes of rare value arc also greatly sought for: the beautiful cat’s ere of the East Indies, the lustrous and rare moon stone, the Oriental topaz, aud the Iridescent, wondrous-tinted opal. The last is the only gem that cannot be Imitated. Pearls are very fash ionable. One of Hie most exquisite necklaces, fresh from Hie hands of Hie workman, shows an intricate design in red gold, with three while pearls of perfect shape and purity, foiling like a. cluster of auow-drops at regular distances. The upper portion of the baud is set with pearls and diamonds. A magnificent pendant cross, with the four ends of equal length, is made open with an inner cross of knife-blade setting close ly studded with pearls. The oink pearl of the East tends a flush to the metallic lustre of the Panama pearl, the other gradations of light and shade softly blending in the opal pearl, the yel low pearl of China, the copper or oronze-tlnted, the black-lead colored pearl, and tlie lustrous white. A large black pearl drops from Hie lower edge, tiny diamonds flash from between the pearls and a two-iovers’-knot of diamonds and one copper-hued pearl forms the loop above. A quaint pair of cartings is set with three small diamonds, a pink pearl droplet pendant from one. and a bronze pearl from Hie oHier. A wild rose lace pin is studded with diamonds, with a large rnby of pigeon’s blood” hue glowing in Hie heart. The cun ning leaves and stem are diamonds, and the rose can be detached and fastened on a gold hair-pin. A crescent of diamonds has a fringe of graduated pearls, showing 1 the different colors ot pink, white, black, copper, and chang ing opaline. A large double crescent ot large diamonds has a ruby and diamond star set In tlie centre, and near it glitters a laec-piu of diamond forget-me-nots, bolding in the heart of each flower a pearl of a different color. One ot the most beautiful ot Hie elaborate specimens of handiwork is a stalk, loaf, and grain of wheat wrought in dull yellow gold; on this are perched three birds with outspread wings, showing such colors as red, copper, and green, in Hie differ ent allov’s ot gold. From each bill a diamond hangs glittering like a dew-drop. A pair ot earrings accompany tilts artistic lace-pin. Some'" exquisitely lovely jewelry sets in graceful sprays ot lily-of-thc-valley, Mar guerite and clover leaf designs are re markable for the charming shadings ot color surrounding pearls and diamonds, varying from Hie palest yellow to copper, green, and brown ish-red, produced by the application ot heat of different degrees to the plates of gold. Rep tiles find extensive appreciation. Of a pair of massive bracelets of yellow gold one is formed ot two coiled serpents with two ruby eyes: for the other arm is a golden coil with a ram’s head. It will be seen that Hie present caprice lends itself to oddities aud economies as well; in case one article ot a pair Is lost, one need not be thought eccentric it the earrings and bracelets fail to match. Among other rare objects de luxe is a string ot Oriental pearls pure white, slightly transparent, aud perfectly round. Tlie Oriental near! is just as much prized nnw as in ancient times, especially from its harmony with a fair, delicate skin. In the present combination of colors too much care cannot be taken to avoid coarse contrasts. The dress offered to Enid, ” where, like a floating sea, the lovely nine played into Hie green.” proved tlie artistic turn ot Tennyson’s brain. lor pale green may be min gled craftily with pale blue, while blue and yel low mix unkindly together. One out ot two colors should always be dull and not too pure. Yellow has many beautiful shades, particularly when it gradually pales into ecru and ivory. NOTES.

Cooper, Knickerbocker aim Sheldon are about to have the elevator man in the United States Court Building Impeached on the ground that he is the greatest wire-puller connected with the present administration? Knott A. Peoctob. Where Is the Money ? To the Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, Feb. I.— According to the Gov ernor’s Message upwards of 5,900 certificates at $1 each on diploma?, and a number (probably GOO or S 00) on examinations at $5 each have been issued by the State Board of Health, which sanitary (?) body has so lar been almost wholly occupied in throwing out the ‘‘irregu lar” doctors, by authority of the Medical Prac tice act. The Board now want a large appro priation of cash from the State Treasury, but do upt account for the amount received as above, and fur other fees, altogether perhaps nearly SIO,GOO. If the M. D.’a of Illinois are such sheep as to be shorn by an irresponsible raau under such a loose form of law, the people of the State have a right to know about the money thev are overtaxed to nay. The doctors ought to pay for what benefits themselves alone. ’ Taxpayer. Pare Air, To the Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, Feb, I.—Sickness of all forms is on tiic rampage. It attacks dwellers in palaces, as well as those who live in dark and damp base ments and cellars. The common people are be ginning to look for causes, and to study intelli gently the wav to prevent it. It behooves all who can to aid in this education. Doctors should encourage this seeking for knowledge which will save sickness, \\ hen people understand the causes of disease outside the body, as well as those from wrong eating and drinking, sickness in a great degree will disappear. Hereditary 'diseases will assume a milder type and event ually die out. There are seeds of disease in the air, and whether we attract them depends in a great measure upon the Quality of our t.ood, which is cither pure or otherwise, according to the food we eat. Also upon the conditions which surround each one of us. It is generally the result of violation of physical law if we are sick, and not blind chance. The causes which produce consumption wilt not develop scarlet or typhoid fevers, but unhealthy conditions of different temperaments may attract these differ ent forms of disease. Dr. Beard, an able writer on atmospheric electricity and ozone, shows how tides of elec tricity flow regularly through the air morning and evening, generating ozone, Nature's great disinfectant and curative agent, When it Is found in the right proportion in the atmosphere epidemics capnot prevaii. When there is a lock, intermittent lever and. nervous diseases are greatly aggravated, especially in low and flat districts. A want ot ozone favors the spread ot croup, diphtheria, scarlet and typhoid fevers, and in hot countries it is the probable cause of yellow fever and cholera. If Hie Government would make as faithful observations in this vital matter as it does in the winds and the weather, the people would soon learn to take in sail if sickness threatens. To be forewarned is to forearm them. ft is but a short time, comparatively, since anything was known about electricity. All the benefits which have grown out ot knowledge of it are few, compared to the blessings which will eorae of understanding Hie elements of the air and hhw to utilize its life and health-giving properties, and to guard against the effects ot its poison from gases, decaying vegetation, etc. There is great danger in sleeping in rooms where there are fixed basins, unless there is an escape-pipe leading to the roof to convey Hie sewer-gas. The traps often fail to keen out this deadly poison. It is forced from various causes through them with all its deadliness. It would be more exhilarating and far healtnier to sleep in rooms with no warmth, and wasli iu cold water, as most of us did in youth,—at least those of ns past 50 years of age,—than to be Surrounded by ail modern improvements. The open lire is cheerful, and the only one m regard to ventilation which is absolutely sate. It would add mueb more to the health and pros perity of Hie future if our legislators would in vestigate into the causes and Hie prevention ot disease than to give so much time aud money to build asylums and hospitals for those who should never have gotten sick or infirm. “Pre vention is better than cure.” Jilts. E. G. COOK, JI. D. Explanation. TV) Ihr Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, Feb. I.—TViil you have the kind ness to correct an article which appeared in your Issue of Hie Ist, charging Thomas Fitzgerald of sounding a fire-alarm from Box 2D I without cause, and also charging him with being a worthless character! A prominent business man on South Desplnincs street, Mr. Baker, of Hie firm of Murray & Baker, sent a man to sound au alarm, he seeing fire escaping from a chimney, thinking the house to he on fire. Jir. Fitzgerald, having a key, sent a man to inves tigate, who reported lire, and consequently the alarm was sounded. In proof of this statement I refer you to Officers Read and Tierney, who made the arrest, they having investigated the matter. As to Mr. Fitzgerald being a worthless character, that is a. direct iusnit upon an honest and respectable workingman, to which many prominent citizens in this locality can testify. One TVho Knows. Observations. To the Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, Feb. I.— The Blodgett investigation has developed what an “honorable” position Mr. Yocke occupied as Assignee of Hie Germa nia Insurance Company, and Hie citizens of Chi cago can congratulate Hiemselves Hiat so worthy a man is a member of the Board of Education. Certainly a worthy model for onr children to imitatel Would it not he well for onr influential Mr. Hesing. now that he is making a clean breast of it, to state how ho secured Mr. Vocke’s appoint ment to Hie Board in spite of the great opposi tion made by leading citizens? It would also be well if he would state whether by this ap pointment he squared his account with Vocke, and this was a reward in full for services ren dered in the insurance case, or whether we will have to elect Mr. Vocke to Congress or some other high office to settle that account! Realiy we North Sidcrs are blessed in having such a precious pair of “ honorable men ” look ing out for our interests. North Side Citizen. Judge Drummond Qaestloned. .lodge Drntnmond said, in reply to Mr. Celber son, that he did not think that Register Hibbard should be indicted for perjury if he had obeyed tbe instructions of Jndge lliodJett, and acted under the Court's jurisdiction.— Jteport of examination of Judge jjrummond before Congressional Com mittee. To the Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, Feb. I. — l think Judge Drummond is in error in his statement given ahove. Even though Mr. Hibbard may have made up his re port of fees in conformity to the construction of Hie law as given by Judge Blodgett, it was no defense to Hie indictment if that construc tion was erroneous. The Supreme Court of the United States in the ease of Bovd vs. Alabama, 4 Otto, page 045, decided in 1876, held Hiat a party who has been induced to commit a crim inal act by a previous decision of the Supreme Court of Hie State could not protect himself on a trial of the Indictment on the ground that he had relied upon the previous decision of the Supreme Court of Hie State in committing Hie act complained of. The Court in that case says, on page 049: “If he has heen misled by previ ous adjudications of the State Courts his relief from the present judgment must De sought from t lie clemency of the Executive. Tills Court can afford him 'node.” The judgment mentioned by the Court in that ease was a conviction ot the party uader a criminal indictment. Lawyer. A Now Bed at St. Luke’s Hospital. To the Editor oS The Tribune . Chicago, Feb. I.—On the morning of the 30th of January there was presented to Bishop Mc- Laren by Dr. Locke, and by the Bishop placed upon the altar of the chapel at St. Luke’s Free Hospital, the sum of $3,004.09 in gold and silver coin. This sum is the free sift of children from all parts of the United States to endow a child’s bed in St. Luke’s Hospital, in Chicago, and grew out of the suggestion of the Churchman of New York about two years ago. Eloquent and touch ing addresses were made by the Bishop and Dr. Locke, and the following verses were contribut ed by Mr. Goodwin, Jr.: When Christ His earthly pathway trod ; Through want and sickness, tears and grief, No home to rest His weary bead, Ko child to nrattic sweet relief, He paused among the throng to raise A carious thing before all eyes. And said, ‘* Be like this little child. And yon shall taste of Paradise.” Dear Christ! to-day we come to Thee With offerings from a Continent, By mvriad loving children sent, heap their hearts on one soft bed, Where some poor sntTnng little head Xay rest sccnre—where Time's swift glass Will mark but blessings as they pass: Where gentle hands will soothe each pain And woo the sick to health again. * We crave Thy b'essing on this hed By tiny bands so Kindly spread. May every child through all the land vC’cose gift upon our altar lies Fall early come to understand That no such road to Paradise Is half so sweet or half so pure As that which opens wide the door To Christ's sick, suffering poor. And oh I vc fathers, mothers dear! Who still with anxious hearts do bear The chain which Hind* a pulsing love- Your living child—spar'd from above— When sleep it# little eyelids close. And restless murmurs stir Its lip, While Spirits watch its sweep repose, Some Angel’s plumage here may din, To bear from this—the children’s bed— A prayer that yours may rest its head, When sleep shall find a last abode, ». safe in the bosom of its God.” Bacon’s Objection to the Spelling Eeform To the Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, Feb. I.—This reform, like all Impor tant measures, has its objectors. Bacon is re ported as bavins characterized it “ a branch ot unprofitable subtlety,” assertion that by its adaptation ‘‘the derivation ot wr-ls, especially from the foreign languages, are utterly defaced and extinguished.” Now let ns consider this objection. It is well to wein-h all arguments against as well as in fa vor of any proposed pnblic measure, and throw our influence and efforts on the side which prom ises the greatest good to the greatest number. The fact that objections are raised to any pro posed improvement should not discourage i's friends. In ail ages there have been persons, even as prominent as Bacon, who a certain writer has—more forcibly than elegantly—described as “hanging on to the shirt-tail of progress and crying, ‘Whoa! whoa! 1 ” When Bacon, or any other authority, implies that a knowledge of the derivation ot worus in our lancuarc from the many foreign languages is, or could be it attained, of sufficient practical ralne to the masses of the people to "offset three or more years ot time and study, m addition to the time and study required to learn those lan guages, he implies five or ten times more than I am willing to concede. Furthermore, it is not very apparent that the derivation of ohr words would be “utterly”— nor even very largely—“ destroyed ”by reform spcUln or . An examination of Webster's Un abridged Dictionary discloses many—yea, im/ tnauw-words already quite differently spelled from the foreign words from which they were derived; and yet their, derivation has not thereby been lost! Could not the compiler ot a reform-spelling dictionary give the deri vations, although differently spelled, as well as Webster? ■ _ Again, in order to bo of any value at all to a person to know the derivation of our words from the foreign languages, he must first under stand those languages ; for of what value would it be, for instance, to know that our words “domicile.” “domestic,” etc., were derived from the Latin word ihmus, without first a knowledge tliat domtu signifies “house”; that our words u legislature” etc., were derived from the Latin tear, without first learn ing that tec signifies ‘‘Jaw”; and so on I And what proportion of our people—every one of whom should understand spelling our “ Own words—ever master even out of the several foreign languages from which our words are to some extent derived! And, again, a large proportion of our words would not be materially changed hr reform spelling,—that is, not so as to render them un recognizable to the student of foreign lan guages. For instance, “pedestrian, l * “pedal,” etc,, frompAterf, the foot; “manufacture,** from maims, the hand; “corporeal,” from corpus. the body; “solstice,” from so/, the sun; “lunar,” from ftmtr, the moon; “terrestrial,” from term, the earth, etc., and, I may say, a large proportion of the English words’ derived from Latin would not be rendered a whit less recognizable bv reform spelling: and the Latin is the only language to which English deriva tives to anv extent retain identity of spelling. Really, then, what does the above Baconian objection amount to practically? Qow much does his assertion of the result of reform spell ing lack of being a palpable absurdity? Two other objections, o! some seeming plausibility, have been raised against the spell ing reform; and, If agreeable, 1 shall be pleased to “have at them” in another article. War. M.
