THE FASHIONS.
FANCY COSTUMES.
Harper's Mazar.
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

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.

plicable to the Hallct <fc Davis Uprights, in
which the tendency to that great defect has
been overcome, and the improvements secured
to the manufacturers by patents. This is one
reason why the Uprights of this make are used

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.”

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.

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.

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.
