PARIS. April S.—Although each day sees
come new attempt to create a novelty for
tbe coming season, there lo at present noth

the reigning fashion. It Is still Imp .
to cay whethc- the sack-back coat 3 will
please, or if we shall not continue to pre!
to have the outlines of cur figure aci urately
defined: of course. Ibis will depend greatly
upon the figure to define, ard where soui i
may delight In a tight-back, others will
adopt the loose make. It Is this that the
natural taste of tho Parlsiu:: II .;. :de.
Here no fashion is adopted indlscrimln- I
at"ly, the becoming is always largely .-■ ud-
led, and th* It one of the reasons that
French women have the well deservej repu
tation of knowing how t •em, c I. In |
fact, being better dressed than the >ouitn

term better I ao not mean more expen

.-by *h!s time you have atrlvcd at the
[ i-oa-lurlon that, to be attractive, an t:n

' overdone the. thing, or her skin was very

' of not allowing water to touch her face.
This is all nonsense. Any one Interested In
preserving the complexion would soon find

ones follow the !-a.l cf the harem beauty.,
and after the morning batn. If the skin
' needs cleaning, they use a little almond

teresting course. Indoor golf may thus be
made quito an exciting amusement, but
for the sake of tbe liric-a-urae, lofting and

gome resolves itself into putting go.lf. It is
excellent practice In putting and embraces
i the most Important elements of tbe sport.
Tho cam a- is arranged for one or two
| persons to play ot: aides alternately, one
- roui.d of the lmks to be reckoned a matcu
unless otherwise agreed beforehand. Tne
I Winner Is the gainer of moat holes. The
player chosen to start does so frjni the tee

hole and contll ue« play until he misses
getting In. The next player follows ihe
mba from ale starting point, to be continue:':
until t..e tenter holt Is reached. The side

tested ond reckoned In like manner.
A player bavins holed a ball places the
fame upon the In.lftitijn made ln front of
each hole bpfore playing for the next. A
| player must not strike agalnat another ball;
J the penalty for so doing counts one agains
| tbe striker. Where the striker hi a the
, hall from there he mint pltiy the next time,
j In a double match a player taking a wrong

jby way of chanp,e. may be reckoned upon
j tho whole in of holta, the least number
Winning 'he game.
There Is another game of Indoor golf re
quiring greater (kill; sides are chosen and
I tbe play alternates as before.
Each ho c Is to bo secured hy one stroke
of the club from the po;nts of Indention in
front of the same, beginning at the teeing
ground, marked "start." A player failing
to get in must bring the bail hack to where
he started, and begin again when his turn
comes, to bo continued from hole to bole
till tho finish. A player missing the hole
played for is followed by tile next, bu:
should he get in he continues till he misses.
Tbe winner Is the «no '.vho gets home nrst,
the win being counted by holes.
