"PARI?. March 20.?By the lime yon
read ?this it will be almost time for tocicty
to come ba-k from the liniera?and then
ior "the? Ivdiidon season:
?KpcculatioLi ls rl.'e as to the tont, which
lhe London season will assume. Will
Muy ?ind June be deadly dull, with all
the smn.il men at lhe war and nil the
?smart ?women in sackcloth and ashc-a, or
*wlll a delightful season of sales and ba
y.asrs ?ir.ci war entertainments keep Lon?
don Kay!
The Queca has promised that she will
?Ither hold her drawins-rooms personally
or will request that thorough society wo?
man, ihs Princess of Wales, to preside
ior her; and, besides' this. Victoria has
is'gnHled lhat, if her health allows, sue
will be pr?sent at several gai den parties
end In other ?ways let the English people
know that their Queen still lives.
"Many handsome gowns arc being made
for the late Paris season <?n the Riviera
und ?at St. Morii*!, which lias became very
?IWCiionablc; ?md targe boxes arc also
Shipped '?> Monte? Carlo's hC?thful heights
ladcu with fashion's requirements, which
consist principally now of small belong?
ings for ?the toilette, of which liiere were
_cver ?o many.
The tendency is siili toward the light
ttones. iTw-e? hat.?- will? illustrile this;
One is a walking hat ?if XiU- blue velvet
shroud*?d in Nil?- grocsn c.>?l"f??!i with the
tiniest dot of old ]>!??<?. ?* one si.lc are
violets in their leaves, a hug?.? bunch or
them, with 'ihe _i_c colors ovcriopping
and outnumbering tho ?sombre shades.
The ?other is a very ?large -siIk-c*ovcred
round hat to be worn well back upon the
head. It is ni bluish-pink silk, trimmed
?with narrow l-ows of pale red straw. The
trimming consists of .red biris, nnd the
tiniest Italiati leather which bears small
resemblance to the Scottish flower.
TWO NEW COATS.
Two coats we're sketched a few days
ago, -worn rcepcoi?vely by the Countess of
"Essex nnd "Mrs. Arthur Paget. One of tiie
coats was a little tan Kton, with spade
iront, loiur and -pointed and trimmed with
?braid. The Other was the new reefer
?with hroad while satin lapels. The aeef
-or ?buttoned at the. bolt ?line with one
?Jewelled button. Its main feature was a
nlltciilng of contrasting silk which orna
mented ihe darts of the little coal. Poth
of th?aso coats iwore rrnade in Paris.
ISccentric. Is Ilie word which one might
apply to the little coats -of f-pring. A
?pretty American girl, a Miss Rich, of
Chicago, ?purchased a gown for a fash?
ionable reception. It was in half a dozen
pi?ces, including skirl, jacket, bolero, vest,
belt and .tall curved collar.
Xt ?was a typical calling costume. . The
?skirt was built o? castor-colored broad?
cloth, piped willi rose-colored panne.
. Around tho foot there was a trimming
of bengaline, overlaid with li curious elnih
decoration. The cloth was cut in strips,
V.eld together by a broad band at top and
J midway. This entire decoration was fas
toned over -the bengaline In such a way as
to tmtnke a trimming which looked sing?
ularly like insertion.
Oddity amd variety seem to he the dual
?aims <of tho .French drcss-makcrs. and
many of the new modes are entirely dif?
ferent irom those seen in any previous
eoason.
The vest mid girdle of ?his calling-dress
?wero of white mousseline over white
?a-tin. 1ho former being considerably puff?
ed eo ns to make a full front.
The jacket nnd lhe bolero were quite
separate, one being put on over the oth

er. Tac jarket was cut in a zig-zag
Grecian iasnijn lo show a broad expanse
?of binilo an?I vest, li ."was o? Uie ?-astor
lirviadfloth. Over It was worn the tiniest
little jacket o? Aeolian doth, as thin as
crepe de chine and of a shade Lo exactly
match the castor broadcloth.
TWO CITFTS.
The Robespierre cuffs are seen in sev?
eral different forms; for tlie street, where
tlie sleeves ar ions, tlie cufs are situated
low over tlie hand so as to barely leave
tlie knuckles visible. A cuff of this
Und makes the hand look small and for
that reason is -worn very flaring. Another
style of Robespierre cuffs is located just
above the -elbow, it turns back and is
.cautifuir?- enniroidered: this kind ?of a
cuff is worn -with the little house conta
which are so fashionable on the Rivi?ra.
The. fashionable woman of this spring ?
will not hesitate? to purchase a whole trunk :
a? these 'little 5ioui-<--TO3ts, varying In ?
?length from the anm coat to tlie one which
is ope.n nt tlie ?sides and falls to the
floor ?over a tea frown of taffet? or china
6ilk, or crepe ?lo Inlla.
The house coat, properly fa<iionecl. is
a very desirable article o? dress, for it.is
cool in sunimor and Warm in winter.
At this time of year it c?in be slipped on
over tlie early shirt waist. a?nd when
summer comes it can be worn over a vest
and broad Turkish Rirdle.
A Paris modiste showed mo half a
dozen little house coats of embroidered
-pique, cotton challie, mulle, nainsook,
and madras. All were made over wash
silk", and those that happened to be trans?
parent irece.lv?-. a very pretty clow from
their silken linlnpr.
The season of transparencies is not at
an end. One of the smartest dresses,
worn at a reception priven by the wife of
the President, was of black mousseline
tie. soie over white taffeta. The foot of
the skirt got Its note of color from a
very <loep border of forget-me-nots which
extend??d all the way around tlie skirt,
somewhat conrthinjr the mousseline de
soie, and in a way ?detracting from its
lightness. The fonrot-mc-nots were of
silk and varied in color ?from deep purple
to pale blue, thus taking great liberties
with nature.
Tiie little coat, worn with this skirt,
was a bolero, made entirely of finely tucn
ed evinte taffeta, edged with a deep cream
lace ruching. ?Medaillons of cream lace
wero appliqued over the tucks, decorating
the bolero in conventional fashion.
The half sleeve had a turned back puff
of Nile green panne velvet; the collar and
girdle were of the same panne.
There was still another part to this
somewhat complicated dress, for it had
a vest of while chiffon, bound across
with small black velvet bows. The sleeves
were of chiffon.
OF MANY PJJEaipS.
"While the charge of eia.tr?v?gance can
be truthfully laid at fashion's door, it is
a fact lhat gowns are so made up of dif?
ferent mat?-ials and colors that a woman
of Ingenuity can put together a very ac?
ceptable house" dress, or even an after?
noon or reception gown, at smalt cost.
As a couturi?re told me, "With live '
yards of taffeta, five yards of crepe ?le
India, a little piece of velvet, some
squares of lace, a rutile of chiffon, and
a few artificial flowers, I can fashion for
"Madame a handsome reception dress. If
Madame will oniy give me her left-over
pieces, that is all. 1 can make a gown
from her last winter's soiled ball dress."
Tho waist known as "baby"' is black.
This waist is round in the 'neck, front an.l
back, after the style adopted by "Mrs.
Cleveland In the United States some
years ago, and later chosen by the Coun
tess Castellanco and other Paris leaders of
fashion. In design around the waist line
it is alike simple, for it is shirred ali the
way around, with the fullness pulled well
down in the back, but left baggy over the
waist in front and on tiie snl?*s.
A figured silk chall'e. ?n Marie Ar.tio
nc-tte blue with figures of Cairo green,
was made with one of the new spreading
skirts, without a particic of fullness at
the hips. The skirt flared perceptibly
from the lene?.?? down: in the muidle of clic
back it was relieved by a box plait.
India challies come this year in \*ery
fine- grades. They are thinner than cash
mere, as soft as nun's veiling, and "is
beautifully figured as broacadcl silky.
"Many of them have the slightly raised
patterns of the Turkish weaves. T.ioy
are easily mide up and are very becom?
ing to any tiirure.
"While fashion ?s yet undeveloped," for
wo never know until after EVster what
will bo worn in summer, It Is certain:
T5?at Paris hats will be Tar^e.
That coais will be irregular in shape,
short in the back and ?op""n In front, with
a tendency toward the Eton.
Skirts will be worn very Ions In front
as well as in the back, and house dresses
will show a froth of white ruffles around
tiie feet.
The Ohlcst Supervisor.
SMITHyjLLE. XA., _iar?'h SO.-Special.
Charlotte county can. we think, justly
boast of having tho oldest supervisor in
the SUte and of whose record she has a
right to bo proud. We allude to Captain
1^".^* ,-?aJley' SuPervisor for Walton'
District. He Is eighty-two years of ?ge,
has beim a member of the board ron
tlnually since July, 1S73. anil although
living ten ir.iles irom the Court-house,
has never missed a. single -meeting of the
?boari
Can any ot'n?yr supervisor ln the State
say as much?
'Noiieh for 3lc.
"Sometimes I think I'll thrash him,
good.
He needs lt bad, I'm sure.
An' sometimes?well. I b'lleve I would
'X then ? can't endure
T' tech th' musin' little kid,
For when he smiles, y' see.
He looks jes' ?like his mother did, ;
An' that's enough for me.
I guess a hundred times or more
I've taken him inside
Th' bedroom there, an' closed" th' door
An" tried an' tried an' tried
T' bring myself to strike him, onct, -
Jes' onct?an" then 1 see
His mother's smile on his wet face.
An' that's enough for me.
First thing I know I'm. slttln' there
Pettin* th' little chap,
An* strokin' of his curly hair,
Holdin' him in my lap.
An' dre?m?n' of her?seeln' her
Jes' as she used to be,
An' somcthin' makes my eyes t' blur
?An' me cry silently. \
He's got the same brown eyes she had
An' the same silky hair.
Looks so like her, th' little lad.
That?well, I jes' <?on' 'dare
To lay a linger rough on him,
'T'd almos' seem as though
I was a' bcin" harsh to her
An' so I let him go.
He ain't a had boy?no, he ain't,
Jes" mischievous, that's all.
In all his make-up th' ain't a taint
O' meanness?an, I call
T' minil .when things she used to do
?Exactly like he docs,
I thouc-ht was jes' th' cutest an'
Th' dearest ever was.
Y' know, sometimes he'll come to' ma
An" say to me: "Say, Dad,
?' ain't goin' to whip me, now, are ye?
I ain't been very bad."
An' then he'll twist, ?in' ?sort o' smile,
My eyes get blurred an' dim.
Th' ain't cnoush gold' in th' world
T' hire me t' tech him.
Folks say I'm spoiling him?may be
I am. ?but I don't dare
To tech him roush?he looks like she
Did, an' so I don't care.
Ho puts his little arms aroun'
My neck, an' I can see
Her in his eyes, so big an' brown.
An' that's enough for me."
