Paris Again Gay.
Some of the recent first nights in
Taris have been signalized by the
wearing of exceedingly good clothes.
This was particularly true of the
premiere of Jeanne d'Arc, a work new
to Paris, though not to London. "Half
toilettes," which were only to he dis
tinguished from the ante-bellum eve
ning gowns by the aforementioned use
of a film of tulle, were worn by all the
women ; and many of them appeared
in interesting and unusual head
dresses. Paris seems to feel the neces

There really ought to he few wom

fliese days of crying demands from
the army and navy. But the slip-on

such a hold upon our affections that
it is difficult to think of abolishing it
altogether. Nor need we do so. Amer

soldiers arid sailors in this vital mat

the same type of garment In mate

such pressing need.
Vests of flannels, of heavy shan

even of satin, made almost exuctly
like the sweater vest of last summer,
have been made up and are being of
fered to women whose patriotic inten
tion might weaken if these novelties
were any less attractive than they
are. Jersey, both in wool and silk, is
another favorite material for them.
Jersey Weaves Taken Up.
In fact, jersey weaves have not in
the least diminished in popularity.
Tin* first wool Jersey woven in this
country was rather too reminiscent of
Fm-le Josh's red underwear to have
a success with fastidious women. But
the weave lias greatly improved.
As for the silk varieties, there is a
heavy sort, of vegetable fiber, which
is immensely satisfactory. It is heavy
and lustrous and not too stretchable.
It hangs in the rich, long folds that
cling to the figure and lends itself
particularly well to strictly one-piece
frocks or coats which hang from the
shoulders in an Oriental effect. Such
material is never lined, but it is worn
over a lining of some sort made espe
cially for it.
Paris is using tiiis heavy kind for

failed to achieve success with its, but
