Fashion Notes. .
There is a marked revolution in . the
shapes of bonnets. . : . .
Hand-w'ovcn silks are imported, and
highly recommended. ;
Winter gros grain will be myrtle-green,
seal-brown and slate-blue.
Natte silks will be worn as over
dresses, with velvet or plain gros grain.
Double-breasted English walking Jack
ets will be largely worn for winter
wraps. , ,
The most popular low priced silks at
present exhibited in the shops are those
designated as hair-line stripes.
It pays to save a few dollars in buying
material for a dress, and expend it in ex
tra labor on the making up. J . . .
The materials used for English walk
ing jackets are Scotch Cheviots, diagonal
cloths, and other fine soft wools.
It is in fashion at the present time to
wear bits of handsome lace on occrions
when a greater display would b ..t "of
taste. '
Slriped Algerienne is largely sold in
Paris, and extensively imported. It is a
woolen fabric of sober 'groundj with
bright stripes. ' '
Natte silk is one of the novelties of the
season. It is composed ,of cft oords in
mixed or contrasting colors brd close
ly together in canvas patterns. ,
The always excellent polonaises make
once more an effort for c v?stence, proving
by some of the finest r Jels yet intro
duced that they deserv continued rec
ognition. : Among the't ,s which
ladies are makr t pres
ent are cuffs, cc a ha.., chiefs in
sets of. fine linen ornamented 'jvith rows
of hem stitchi'r. i .-V
' Garments r4cde from piec brics be
ing tne ijrevaiiing cnoice it present,
shawls, unless they are of value and
great beauty,' have only a secondary place
in the field , of fashion.: ;;"
A cottage cap for a baby is a close-fitting
cap of muslin puffs, insertion and
lace. It comes close down under the
ears, has a low crown, is tied under the
chin, and has a lace frill on the edge.
Some rich bridal dresses are made in
princesse shape. They are quite plain
as low down a3 the knee, but below this
they are richly flounced w ith plain gros
grain and lace. Others are. made with a
long cuirass basque with, sleeves of point
lace, or else transparent sleeves of some
kind. The cuirass has a j ibotof lace
straight down thc; back and down the
front." The Lamballe fichu of lace, or of
the silk edged with lace, trims other
basques. White roses will be much worn,
mixed with orange blossoms, for bridal
parures. '. .. . -

dates for the Senate of Ohio because he

The Toledo Review, Catholic, says:
"The. day is probably not far distant when
there willbe a Geghan law in every one

"Mr. Pershing," says the Pittsburgh
Commercial, "is the man who made a
speech in the Pennsylvania Legislature
against a bill in which the Pennsylvania
Railroad was interested, soon afterward
took a fee of $500 from the railroad com
pany, and next day voted for the bill he
had denounced.
. The Cincinnati Commercial is very se
vere upon the Erie Convention. It says
that "the programme ol inflation, specu
lation and repudiation was well consid
ered, and that the leaders are able and
unscrupulous rascals, who aim at the
possession of the organization of the
Democratic party first, and the occupan
cy and robbery of the country afterward."
The New York Graphic, which Is nom
inally independent in politics, but which
admires Gov. Tildeni and ' the New York
Democracy, : makes this appeal to the
Democrats of Ohio : "We call upon them
to sacrifice, in the interests of their par
ty and their country, Mr. William Allen,
their candidate for Governor. No re-specn-
can be felt for Mr. Allen. ' An old
Jackson Democrat, on record all his life
as opposed to any money save" 'gold and
silver, he, for the sake of a chance elec
tion at the end of his days, has set aside
his whole record, and stand3 upon a plat
form which he knowrs to be a wrong one.
There is nothing due to him from any
Democrat iu Ohio, but the party there
owes something to the party elsewhere."
It adds that the election of Allen would
divide the Democratic iiarty, while his
defeat would unite and strengthen it.
