Nkw Yokk, Aug. 1, 1894. theloss possible for every woman to bo dress herself al to eeem comfortable. If it is not possible tn roally he cool, then look it. It's a duty you owe to your self and others. To that end wear sheer bodices. Your ekirt may be duck if yoa like, but let the bodice be of fluffy, sheer stuff. Turn-awßy collars with a wide ruffle on the edge and a lit tle ol cool neck showing, wide, turnback cuffs unstarched, wide beltß with breezy Bash ends—these are the tbinga that "Its all right." make a girl a bleßsing to the community on a hot day. White is a good ohoice, but not always the best for cool effect, because it sometimes makes tbe skin Beem too pink by contrast. A delicate green is, perhaps, tbe very best, or a delicate blue or gray. Select a material that chows a tiny line of white or blaok throngb it and trim with insertion of iace, white or black to match. Make the gown very simply, for fussy dresses alwayß look warm. Wear a fresh flower at the belt. Carry a sunshade lined with delicate green, or a faint blue to mnteh the dress. Have faultlessly white gloves loosely on tbe hand, wear white shoes and stocking*, and a dreamy, cool smile will complete a get up that ought to make you a necessity in every family, as the tinman said of the patent egg-beater. If you want something which is very dressy and stylish and will have it white, then consider the gown in the first, small picture. It is of white silk and has a gored skirt trimmed with bands of white bead end jet passemen terie, a short strip showing in tbe cen ter of the front and two long ones ap pearing at either side. The back and sides are plain. The bodice has fitted lining and a plain plastron of white silk ornamented, as shown, with passemen terie matching that on the ekirt. Its sides are covered with fronts of white tulle heavily spangled with jet and bunched into rosettes on the shoulders. The hat is entirely black, and is gar nished with velvet ribbon and ostrich plumes. It illustrates prettily the pres ent favored trick of having a hat cov ered tuiokly with euch plumes, which may droop or stand op assertively, to the wenrer'a taste. If you cannot manage a gown of silk, why not emulate the enthusiasm of the shooters of election time and make your cry: "What's the matter with ging ham? It's oil right; it's a dandy!" For proof of this reply, turn to the second picture. Here the material is gingham of a beautifully delicate blue, ehowing a Full thirled afternoon dress. fine white etripe—a better oboice, ac baa been intimated, than pure white. The blonge waist is lined with muslin, and has a wide box-pleat in tbe center of the tbe front, where it fastens with large •earl buttons. The belt may be either FASHION NOTES blue or white watered tils ribhon, ana two ends extend npwnrd lo finish in rosettes. From the came ribbon comes the standing collar, which ends in k bow in front. A yoke is imitated by ecru embroidery laid oyer tho gingham, ond epaulettes of the euroe finish the plain OR these hot days fashion creators would do a wise thing if tbey would nnite in commanding one imperative style. They won't do that, of course, bnt It doesn't seem unreasona ble to ask that they permit all stylishness to con form to an appear ance of coolness. In tbe absence of of such a general decree, it is never- balloon sleoves. Muslin is used to line the plain gored skirt, and it has four small frills of Hamburg edging inside. Around the bottom oomea a wide band of ecru embroidery matching that on the bodice. If desired, heavy guipure may be substituted ior the ombroidery, or any of the season's many dainty lacee\ Never web there n greater supply of available colors, arid they enter into dresses as the animals weut into tbe ark —by twos, for the rule is quite gen eral to have at least two colore for every dress. Here is the way the shades pair off for the mazes of the fashionable parade: Gray nnd white, yellow and white, blue aad white, all these colors witb black, blue and gray, green and gray, lilac and whito, lilac and pale blue, lilao and delicate yellow, very delicate pink with lots of white, two shades of light green, and black and white. This is but a small beginning of tho list, which is increased by many capricious combinations. In the third gown which the artist sets forth, sapphire blue and black show in tbe taffeta which com poses it. The ekirt has a plain front and aides, and the back is arranged in three godet pleats very full around the bot tom. It ie not trimmed on tbe outside, but a lace frill comes inside. The round bodice is made of bias silk and faetens in front. It is trimmed wilh a jet plas tron showing only in front and a deep collarette of spangled black tulie, hav ing two long tabs in front tied with jet ornaments in the waist and also weighted with jet at the bottom. The fads of the eammer girl are differ ent, one year from another, as are her gowns, and a season rarely passes but some craze springe up which necessi tates a apeoial coßtumo, Usually these take the Bhape of some sport, and boat ing, tennis and golf have had their in nings, but this summer's example mikes a pretense ol usefulness and dubs its devotee the "emergency girl." Iv days long ago it was the housewifely little person who carried an emergency bag and was always aula and ready to repair any mishap of raiment, but in the summer of 1804, mind you, she must be able to take a ettich, not in the coat but in the wearer, if he needs it. She must not only know how to eew on a button, but be ready to put on a patch anywhere you need one or sow up a seam wherever you are cut. Her little emergency case is small and black aud in it are all eortß of drng store things; rolls of bandages, wads of cotton, queer needles, curly scissors and so on. She is supposed to have a large white apron and a pair of turn back cuffs in tbe out fit, and when she has to sew she puts tbem on and looks sweet, no matter how she hurts ber patient. Tbe rogula tion apron is a wide one reaching to tbe edge of tbe dress, tbe belt is wide and it buttons in tbe back. It is enough in tself to transform tbe giddiest creature Into a staid, competent emergency girl at once. She goes to work on the principle that tbe appearance of tho nurse hiss great effect on the poor patient, and if she has a chance, will part her hair in the middle and comb it straight down over tho ears, with just one or two little curls escaping for luck. At the back it is drawn high to tbe top of the bead and held with a comb. The fashion is not becoming to ail faces, but it confers distinction, whether improving or not. It is sometimes a mistake to wait for a becoming fashion. You are fortunate, of course, if the vogue suits you, but whether it suits or not, it is worth while to follow it. At least you can look "just right," and that is better form than be ing merely pretty. It makes the pretty girls actually wild to realize that the homely one looks three times as well as StnsibU attire for traveling. Another gown for journeying. THE HERALD. LOS ANGELES, SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST 5, 1894. tbey do, and half the time it Is partly hecause her very plainness gives her a distinction. Ju«t how much these ama teur surgeons can accomplish in case ol seriouß need in a question, but it is sure ly very effective with the men to be able to deltly attend 10 a fellow's cuts and bruises. Women patients need not apply. The time for returning fo town from the summer onting ia not far distant for even the most fnvored, so consideration of traveling dresses is timely. After a whole summer given over to all sorts of frivolous amusements, a wee bit of reac tion follows and seek, expression in these traveling gowue, which aro made Bomewhat severely. Since this is usually the case, it constitutes no prophetic hint that a return will he made to gen eral cimplicity in the autumn, but ia merely one point from which elabora tion has been almost excluded. A thin woolen suiting of a grayish green ia used in the first of these. It is made with » plain gored skirt and a blouße waist, having n yoke of dark green embroi dered silk. The cape is not lined—of itself a great sacrifice in these days of brilliant cape linings—and has emhroi* dered corners. It ia garnished with a draped bertha, whose corners and edges are blbo embroidered with green silk, as. is tho email yoke visible above the ber tha. Tho standing collar has a large bow of green silk ribbon in back. The bat to be worn with tbe costume is a small toque, either ol straw or velvet, which is trimmed with two white lace wings, two blackbird wings and a rib bon rosette in the center. The second model is taken from gray mohair; its skirt is simply ornamented by machine stitching, and is neither lined nor stiffened. Its bottom iB fin ished by a hand of leather or clotb, put on about five inches above tbe bem. The bodice has tilled lining and hooks in front, beneath the overlapping box pleat. The fronts ore blouse Bhaped. hanging over the belt, which is made of double faced gray satin ribbon and hooka beneath the bow in front. The sleeves are rather wide and are finished with bands of leather or clotb, drawn through Binall buckles. Traveling cloaks are often made with many capes, and tbe material most naed iB n silk mohair. For colors, tan is much in favor. This ia a mistake, be cauee tan is not becoming to a traveling complexion, and there is no royal road which leads to an entire avoidance of ferime in long car rides. [Copyright, 1894.] THE THING BUCKED. The Experience <> r nn Editor Upon n New-Bought Riojele. A conn try editor who has forsaken journalism for the more lucrative field of politicß, gives the following descrip tion o! his attempt to master the first luxury which his new vocation enabled him to buy: Tbe now wheel I had purchased was one of these light airy things which must be handled with care, so I bor rowed from an unsuspecting friend, a wheel which weighed something less than a ton and which was strong enough to carry the Cardiff giant. In order to have plenty of room I went to a ten-acre clearing on the brow of a hill, and it was none too big—the clearing I mean. Well the thing bucked at a peb ble worse than any broncho, then it shied at the shadow of my left heel going over tbe right-hand corner of the handle bar. Next it wanted forest end, as its will was law with me, I allowed it to lie down awhile, and lest it should be lonesome I laid down with it to keep it company. After awhile we got np again and I thought we would try something easy, going down hill—it was easy, too easy in fact. We started all right end i! there hadn't been any bottom to that hill we might be going yet. We found the bot tom simultaneously. I am glad we found the bottom; I am also glad that the wheel was a strong one. Wish I was as Btrong. Arnica was at a premium nt our house that night. The next morning the brass-mounted ball-bearing-double-dashed broncho wae a little more docile and I was a little more thoroughly broken to the saddle. I started out in fine style, confident that I bad conquered tbe beast, but I bad forgotten that one must sometimes stoop to conquer. I euddenly remem bered it, however, and then I stooped several times all nt once to make np ior lost time, as it were. The stoop was graceful and artistic; it could not be otherwise, for every posßiole kind o( a stoop was there given in a much shorter space of time than it seemed, while they and I were being executed. Fortunately ln this mundane exist ence misery cannot endure forever, and I finally got the beast under control, but I got right down to bed rock (rock first and bed afterward) in doing it. You may think I have paid very dear for my whistle, but my fun is coming later on—my wife is going to learn to ride. BOTH ARE INSANE. A Hasbanfl'a Grief for His Incuts Wife Onniei His Insanity. A pitiful case of insanity was disposed of in Judge York's court yesterday aft ernoon. Mrs. Emma Hentelof Pasadena was the unfortunate person. She imag ined that the weight of the whole world rested on her ehoulders, for which she wanted to commit suicide. She was ordered committed to the asylum at Highlands, whither she was removed last evening. Tbe poor wife bad not been gone an hour when the huaband, Alexander Hentel, wae brought in from Paaadena by Constable Slater. He was placed in the county jail, and unless his dementia shows signs of abatement, he will join his wife on Monday. The poor husband went insane on ac count of hia wife. He wept like a baby at her going away, and said he did not care to live any longor.

Hoparnl Outlook for a Fall Baal Batata Markat—Many Naw Honeee and Business Bloaka ln All Parts or tlio Olty. What will undoubtedly prove to be the largest artesian well in this state, if not in tbe world, has just been sank at Bixby, on the line of the Terminal rail way, some six or eight miles this side of Long Beaoh. It is down 400 feet and flows a stream sufficient to irrigate the entire section lying between here and the section referred to. When the drill bad nearly reached the 400 foot mark it suddenly dropped 15 feet and went into a subterreanean stream which has since proven to be 65 feet deep. This flows from the mountains to tbe sea. A very curious feature of the well, and one which will prove of more than pas sing interest, lies in the fact that when the tools were pulled np a large quantity of shells, pieces of stone of singular formation and a piece of bone was forced up by the heavy stream. Among tbe shells there are several pieces of oyster of the native variety. They are all quite as fresh and sound as if they had been removed from the beach but the day be fore. It is very evident that the valley in which the well is situated must have been at one time, eoveral thousand years ago, an indentation of the sea, and it is even possible tbat whore Los Angeles now rests the sad sea waves were wont to frolio in bygone days. Aside from all such fancies it establishes a fact patent to everyone that an abundance of water for all irrigation is easily obtained, par ticularly in the section about Long Beach. It is understood that a company haa been formed with that purpose in view and the water will be piped to any sec tion desired. RSAL ESTATE OUTLOOK. Weßley Clark of Clark & Bryan, one of the leading firms in realty in town, reportß this week quite an improvement over the last week in Jnly. Several very good Bales have been made. He wa9 also very outspoken in bis belief in a highly prosperous fall. "We are bound lo have a great many strangers here this fail and winter,'' said he, ''and with all the advantages of this town and country, they will never leave without invest ing." The belief is very general among well Informed real estate people that considerable of a stir will take place as soon as fall seta in. IMPROVEMENTS IN BONNIE BRAE. Clark & Bryan have net the pace for the character of improvements to be made on South Bonnie Brae, by the erection of a modern two-story residence which "rather eclipses anything in that section for real artistic beauty which has been built this year. The owners of the tract, one of the finest in this city, with graded streets and adorned with shade trees, have wiaely concluded not to dispose of it Gave on the condition thai a respectable appearing house shall be built. To stimulate a desire to erect good dwellings and carry out tbeir agree ment, a tine two-etory residence has been put up that does them much credit. It is extremely handsome in de sign. A veranda surrounds tbe front and left side. The door at the front is very handßomely carved, with beveled plate glass and opens into a liberally arranged hall witb a tine stairway at the right, leadiug to the upper part of the house. A door to the lelt opens into the parlor, while a door at the end opens into a dining room. In the rear of the dining room is a convenieatly planned pantry, and next to it is a kitchen, fitted with all the modern conveniences. Next to the parlor and divided by an arch of extremely artistic and original design is a sitting room. The woodwork of the ball is all in natural oak and much ol the ornamen tation is hand carved. Many little fea tureß have been added to the houae by tho designer which give it an air essen tially unique. For instance, in tbe parlor is a bit ot n window, semi-circular in shape, fitted with ground glass. It ex tends out probably a foot or more and forms just enough of an abandon from set liDes to give it an effect very pleas ing. Beneath it is a window seat which can be upholstered. Very pretty fire places havo been put in. In the Bitting room is one finished in birdaeye maple; one in the dining room in oak and one in a large uhamber above in redwood, There are three large chambers above, together with a bathroom, and closets. A very pretty little balcony extends from in front of the house just above the main entrance, ln fact, the house is not only a beaut, inside and out, bat it is provided with every detail for com fort, even to electric lights, electric bells, automatic gas iigbtera, a cement basement, cement walks and such other arrangements as go to add com pleteuess to a modern dwelling in a very aristocratic part of town. AUK MAKING STEEL. The big plant of the Los Angeles Iron and Steel company, down by tbe Santa Fe, started up last Wednesday and ran through a big pile of scrap-iron which had been gathered together Some Iti or 17 experienced rolling mill men have been brought out here from the east, and as soon as a mun arrives to take charge of the sheet steel making process the works will be in full operation Employment will be given to 50 to 70 men. The iudustry will add greatly to the prosperity of tho section below the Arcade depot. ANOTHER NEW nOTEL. From Builder and Contractor : A Ver mont capitalist is reported to have re cently purchased the southeast corner of Fair Oaks avenue and Walnut streot, i Pasadena, and will shortly commence I the erection of an SO-ioora hotel. An ( designed the structure will be n hsnd- I some building, facing both Fair Daks | and Walnut. The gentleman is at present iv the east, but he will be here in a few weeks, when the work will likely begin. The building, as contem plated, will not cost less than $15,000. BUILDING NOTES. C. F. Harper is building a very fine residence out on his Cahuenga pass property. It will be one ol the finest suburban homes built within the past year or so, and will cost $10,000. Mae kay & Young are tbe contractors. H. J. Woollacott is jast completing a very handsome new cottage at tbe cor ner of Tenth and Hope streets, whioh ho will use for bis own rnsidonc*. A brick block, 52x57 feet, two stories high, is being built at the corner ol Seventh and Olive by A. Schmit, at a cost of $7000. A double boaee, to cost $SKK>. it to be built at tbe corner of Tenth and Hop* by the Misses MoOratb. Brown & Fisher, the architects, have just completed the snperintendency of a $25,000 brick block at Azusa, for which they drew the plans. Jobn Wallenslager is building two pretty cottages on Seventeenth and To berman on plana drawn by Blown at Fisher. The new grand stand at Agricultural park, which has been built at a cost of $10,000, is about completed. Last pea son improvements were added to tho grounds in the shape of a barn and pavilion which cost $7000, and the asso ciation now feels that it is in pretty good shape to entertain its visitors. The Delaware block, on Broadway be tween Fifth and Sixth, now being bnilt, will be three stories high, with stores below end rooms above. Tbe Builder and Contractor reports that for July there were 74 permits for new buildings issned, together with per mits for alterations, removals and the like which show a total of $200,120 for improvements. This i 3 nnder ratber than over the real amount, as in most instances the actual cost is not given in tbe permits. For instance, in a new brick block not long since the permit stated the cost at $30,000. As a matter oi fact, the cost of the building will not be under $50,000. If this is the case in one instance it may be so in all, and in stead of the July improvements costing bat $209,000 it will ba nearer $30 1,000. Dr. M. E.
