THIN WOMEN'S WOES
■ TIGHT RiMJVBM AJTO TIGHTER SKIRTS COXIItQ IN. PRINCESS GOWNS REVIVED. SM Fashioned FloantH RunnShssi ■air Way Up tne Skirt Are Also Anions; tne Autumn Fashions. NEW YORK, Oct. I.—There te no doubt Bboat It; the slender woman will be at a Kaavantage this winter. The godet skirts and huge sleeves are surely among the rap- Id*/ departing styles, and fashion threatens to go to the other extreme aad return to dose, clinging skirts. The new gowns are reduced to almost one- Ml of the fullness that formerly prevailed, and they fit so closely about tbe hips that they will be exceedingly trying to very slight figures. The tight sleeves are equal ly trying, and many women are moaning over the lost fullness that has been so be coming to their extreme slenderness. The sleeves ln this transition period are a very Important part of the dress, and although they are clinging from wrhtt to shoulder, their shape Is wonderfully relieved by the many devices employed to ornament the top such as puffs, frills, epaulets, points and' other trimming to match the bottom of the skirt. While the sleeves were so large all women and all gowns looked much alike; but now more Individuality of form and more taste and skill will be shown In new effects ln the combinations of the silks and woollens which will be used in the deral teaton toilets. • The skirts and bodices will be very much trimmed with a new coaree lace, Bulgarian, Croatian and other embroideries, ln Ivory or a pale cream tone. The embroidery is protected and relieved by an edge of col ored braid, gold cord, or narrow black velvet Yokes of velvet covered with lace will be found on many of the fall gowns. Narrow Valenciennes lace will be Just as popular as tt has been all summer. Buttons will take a prominent part ln the trimming of the fall i gowns. Some of the skirts will have the front breadth outlined with buttons on both sides corresponding with the two rows on the double-breasted waist. The new buttons are very artistic, especially those modeled from tbe antique. The old bodices that are an absolute ne cessity for young and old are prettier than -\er. One most tastefully made Is of black chiffon over a black or colored silk lining, and has a chemisette and vest of white net. It has black sequin trimming and un llned shirred sleeves of black chiffon with plaited frills. Deeper frills are used for the bertha and epaulets and for the basque, and a graduated frill serves for the front of the bodice. The collar and belt take the tons of the lining of the bodice. Old fashioned flounces are coming back even flounces halt way up the skirt; and they supply a very graceful way to renovate a black silk by flouncing It with Bilk mus lin, covering the waist and shirring the muslin over the close black sleeves, using deep flounces of the muslin for bertha and epaulets. The princess gown bids fair to be ex ceedingly fashionable this fall and winter for outdoor, house and evening wear. Some of these gowns button down each side of the front breadth or are fastened under a belt across the front; but as a rule they are fastened under the left arm and on the shoulder. Lace or braided boleros will be worn extensively on the gowns fastened in this way. A pretty princess gown for a young lady Is of pale blue, and the effective tabs about the belt and yoke are of black velvet, fastened with silver buttons. The yoke is of guipure lace over blue, and the tight shirred sleeves, with very moderate puffs, are surmounted by particularly pretty epau lsttet, which are quite the feature of the gown. • The sleeves are trimmed to match the foot of *he gown with narrow black velvet. The hat is of black chip, with a tell of yel lowish lace on the brim, and Is trimmed with pink roses and a black bird of para dise plume. Another princess gown Is of dark gray Cloth relieved by Insertions of white cloth. The gown and sleeves are slashed to show the white cloth, and there are Innumerable loops and buttons of black braid. RED HAIR IN HISTORY. Mr Walter and Michael Disagreed About Unhappy Mary's. Tbe exact tint ot the Scottish Queen's hair has been always a vexed subject ot dis cussion. Some give It en unmitigated red, , Ilchelet, for instance, who so far forgets himself and history as to call the poor lady a great red camel; others, siding with chivalrous Sir Walter, boldly endow their martyred Queen and mistress with rich dark-brown tresses. It should not be for gotten, however, that red hair, even modest auburn, suffered a severe eclipse during the aarly years of our century, whereas, under the Valols no one with any pretensions to elegance could be seen wearing It black. In this particular, at least, Mary Stuart must Dave bad the advantage of Queen Margot, who Inherited her father's dark coloring, and was reduced to dissemble nature's shortcomings by the perruquler's art. We are told of three gigantic blond lack eys kept in her service, and brought to the shears as regularly as sheep. Bran tome, Indeed, protests that his Incomparable prin cess could carry with grace "oven her nat ural black hair, twisted and plaited a I'Espagnol, as she sometimes wore ft, ln Imitation of her sister, the Queen of Spain." But no such need of Insistence, one teals, when h* comas to praise the curled ■olden tresses of tha Scottish Queen. 6 Alaat" he cries, "what profanation was that at tha dreadful ntomwpt of her death whan tha barbarous executioner snatched bar bonnet, and there lay revealed those same fair looks, how whitened, thin and wintry, and which bar friends of Prance had so often seaa to admire, curled and adorned as befitted their beauty and tha Hasan they graced.'* A Good EnarHsh Sweetie. The Ascot tartlet Is a delicacy seldom absent from tha English luncheon basket, whether the party Is bound for the races, tha aunt or the river. It Is made with a half a poind sash of sjreatd ooeoonut and chocolate, a omartar of a pound of ground sweet almonda. One pound of powdered sugar and a little cln aamoa mixed to a paste with white ot egg. lias some little pans with puff paste and fill each on* with the mixture, than bake In a quick ovon. . Tha Ozarina Is a thorough musician, aad has Hsaderfully sweat and sympathetic vole*, of tb* Cist's greatest pleasures Is to sit bar Id tho boudoir, wall* IN WOMAN'S WORLD. I There Is a choice at present between Ihe styles of engagement rings which prdspec- I tlve brides in October will wear. The ,third Anger of a pretty white hand should sparkle with a turiiuolse set about with emeralds, or a copy of the sort of betrothal circlet used half a century ago. This last consists iof three Jeweled hoops—the one above showing the bride's birth sforle, the one be low that of the groom, and the center hoop of diamonds-or pearls, as the wearer of the ting p. efers. A ring like thlt frte into a real velvet box, shaped llko a hoart, and Inside the circle are engraved the names of the lovers and the date on which the all Important queß tlon of their future was Introduced and de cided. The virtue of the threo-hcop ring, you youny people of rcodeat moans. Is that It can bo charmingly designed In very tiny. | very bright and not at all expensive stones, while the woman who la making a second matrimonial venture usually prefers the combination of green and-blue. ■ »« I Turquoise, however, are the stones that autumn brides will mbdt eagerly expect and most heartily welcome, for the Jewelers promise that the vogue of these beautiful gems Is to be long and glorious. Wedding gifts in the form of belt buckles, watches, chatelaine bag tope, toilet table splendors and salt bottles are In course of preparation, richly enameled ln turquoise blue, and the brldemalds' pins are to be without varia tion of turquoise and emeralds. —X— —X— —X— As to the bride herself, she who has chosen October for ber wedding month will go to the altar in ' white watered silk. Oyster shell white Is the preferred nuptial < tint, and tho daughters of fashion prom ise one and all to carry after them tremen dous trains. The chiffon train comes sim ultaneously from Paris and London, where It was very much adopted for weddings during the past season, and so much ad mired that it has been enthusiastically Im ported. Yards upon yards of the snowy stuff are draped from the shoulders, over a founda tion of white surah, to trail a length of from six to nine feet on the floor. A New York dressmaker, just completing a wed ding outfit for a Boston bride-to-be. dis played the chiffon train measuring six yards from the shoulders. Portions of It are crystallized ln the tiniest rhlnestone points, to give an effect of being sprayed with diamonds, and, like all the new brides' trains this one Is made separate from tbe gown. It will be carried to the vestibule of the church by a maid, there hooked to the bride's shoulders when she arrives; at her departure from the church It Is to be taken off, hurried home and re adjusted when she takes her place to re ceive under the drawing room palms. At the entry of the Cxar Into. Paris he and the President of the Republic will occupy the same carraige. The wife of the President will have no place ln the procession, as the Pow ers do not recognize her as holding, any politi cs! rank. The Newest la Spoon*. A charming and seasonable novelty ts the lemonade spoon, which serves a double pur pose, ln sliver—the round small bowl gold Uned, and either .fluted or perforated ln a pretty design. The long tube-like handle is hollow, and extends, a little below the bowl, and when resting ln the glass the cooling bev erage can be drawn through It In the same manner as a straw la used. It Is at once convenient and beautiful, and It is safe to predict s leniouada spoon craw for the next few months. " THE GOSSIPER When the skin, ln «pite of all precau tions, has become sunburrrr to excess, there is nothing else to be done but to apply cooling, evaporating lotions, putting them on with an old linen rag or something very soft, and changing these cloths are soon as they get warm. At night a little sweet cream should be. gently applied: or. If this Is not procurable, a simple cold oream can be used. The Juice of a lemon squeexed into almost (not quite) s quarter of a pint of milk, or, still better, a little cream. If that is not con sidered too great a luxoryij is an excellent thing for keeping the skin toft and white: It should be used Immediately after the .fare has been washed. If there Is any roughened f.epllng of the skin afterward there must be, either less lemon used or more milk or cream Added to It.' "" —*- ' —x— —x- The enormous waist buckles which are at present so much In favor ln Paris are di rect descendants of the brobdlngnaglan d'Artols shoe buckles, named after the fa.' nious Comte d'Artols. brother of the French King Louis IX. In fact, all waist buckles are. descendants of shoe buckles: not 'only ir France, but In England—ln London as much; as ln Paris. When shoe buckles died ou', waist buckles came in. Fashion ! changed the ■ location of these articles of I adornment from the extremities of the gen j tlemen of King Charies ll.'s court to the waists of their attendant ladles. ! But shoe buckles lasted long enough to become, ln the-hands of the rich and friv olous, an excuse for extravagances. Their price rose from a shilling to ten gulneas'a pair, and varied between that and very : much larger amounts. Two and a half millions of them were being made every ! year. when, for some Inexplicable reason the demand dwindled and died. A vigorous but unsuccessful attempt was made tc. revive the fashion. Four ; thousand buckle-makers of Birmingham appealed for help to the Prince of Waleß. The obliging Prince promised to assist them by every means in. his. power. He wore buckles himself, and enjoined 'tbetr use upon the members of his household, but the dictates of fashion were not to be over | ruled. Probably some old makers are en- gaged In the recently revived trade ln waist buckles, which, however, flourishes principally ln France. In Paris, to-day, the well-dressed boulevardieres are on the high road to rival the*old magnificence and ex travagance ln the matter of these pretty trinkets. Some that are worn resemble a mass of serpents intertwined, with jeweled heads, and long, protruding Joweled fangs. —X — —X — —x — False pride and shams of all kinds are only mere snobbishness when sifted down. A FALL CAPE And how quickly an honest and sincere person can see through them! A little story Is told of Mr. Gladstone which Illustrates this tact very convinc ingly. Some years ago Mr. Gladstone had met a possible claimant tor a civil list pension, whom he believed to be ln sufficiently poor circumstances, and had almost decided to grant It, when he received, says the Lon don "News," an invitation to dinner with the person ln question. This raised some doubt .In his mind. On the one hand, should a civil list pensioner be able to afford to entertain? On the other hanii. It might be only a dinner ot herbs, and It seemed hard to deprive a public benefactor of a pension because be WaS ready to share hts crust and water. "Knowing that ln any ease there would be a feast of reason and a flow of soul, Mr. Gladstone accepted the Invitation, and on the way propounded to -his companion the following teat: "No -.■•«■ \» . ..'V' v\ ■ ■ -'* THE LOS ANGELES HERALIX champagne, pension; champagne, so pen sion." There was champagne, and the host lost his pension. It was the dearest bottle of wine on record, for It cost the purchaser £100 a year. A new sweetmeat Imported from Prance consists of white currants preserved In liquid honey. The honey and currants should both be of the best quality and the currants only slightly cooked. Some one who has both currants and honey In abund ance may like to experiment with this sweet, which Is cald to have a delicious flavor, produced by the blending of the very sweet and very sour elements. —X— —X — —X— A pretty story Is told of the Archduchess Maria Dorothea of Austria, who Is to marry that erstwhile admirer of lime. Melba. the Duke cf Orleans. It seems that the Archduchess, among other accomplishments. Is an excellent mu sician, and has studied the art very deeply. Tho head of a band of Tzigane musicians was complaining to the Archduke Joseph, father of the Due d'Orleans' fiancee, that business wot, slow for the men of this pro fession on account of the lack of new com positions ln the Tzigane language. The Archduke, laughing, asked his daughter to write a piece for the poor Tziganes. The young Princess composed a song, which the Archduke sent to *he bandmaster, who re served all the rights to her piece. A few weeks later the bandmafter wrote to the Archduke that the new piece, enti tled "After the Rain, Sunshine," had proved a powerful success, and every one wanted a copy of It. Another piece composed by the voting muisiclan, "A Royal Hymn ol the H mveds," has likewise become very popukr. It Is true thit the Archduke Jo seph Is colonel of the Honved Regiment, and that this may have attributed to the suc cess of the latter piece among the officers 'and soldiers of the regiment, though only their intrinsic merit would account for the popularity of both pieces among tbe Hun garian masses. —X— —x— —X— One of those "emancipated" women who are said to be abroad In the land, but who can't be distinguished by men from any other women, writes as follows: "Without going Into all the dry details of the relationship of the sexes in primi tive times and among uncivilized peoples, we may lust take the broad facts which are known to and admitted by every one. Woman has. of course, always been and al ways must be man's physical Inferior—and In times past she has been actually If not literally his slave. She has been the toy and sport of man. with one, and only one, chance of asserting herself. "This has been the exercise of personal charm, which has enabled her to move In i man the passion .ailed love, and thereby to secure an ascendancy over him. The love of power, which is 'common to both sexes, has been hers, and realized that she could only be powerful bf arousing the sentimen tal passion In ma|. she has put forth all her endeavors 'to find favor ln his sight,' as the old phrase has It. "Now. as one of those women to whom men apply the scornful term 'emancipated,' I should like to point out this Important fact, that our sox '.« gradually beginning to recognize that it Is Ignoble to seek for ed miration simply for its doll-like qualities. We hay» no t lost our vanity—though we are | nn vainer than men—but we are now aim ing at winning admiration In worthier fields, namely, n Intellectual walks. "We sholl still pride ourselves on our DAINTY CHILDREN'S STYLES. i good looks when we have them; we shall still do our heat to dress well and taste fully; we shall stilt look forward to wlfe ' hood, and shall noV lose our maternal in stincts but we shall no longer allow our features and our gowns to dominate our i lives. "Undoubtedly we are 'emancipated.' All j fields of activity are being opened to us, and the men who now sneer and gibe at us for our 'newness* will socn come to see that |we are more companionable, and possess j more lasting attractions than In tbe days when our faces were our fortune and when a few wlnkleß and gray hairs announced the end of our reign. "To put my arguments Into a nutshell, my contention is that the prevailing pas sion of women has been the love of admira tion, because It has become an hereditary Instinct of the race that ln personal charm lay our only power. Now that we are at last allowed to cultivate our Intellects, and put them to practical use, our bid for power w.U be on what I consider higher grounds." What a festive lot the English clergy men must be If they ever wear their of ficial hoods. According to an English paper, ln Edinburgh the LL. D.'s hood Is black cloth, lined with blue, for the LL B. It la silk and bordered with white fur. The Aberdeen D. D. Is purpls cl-ith, lined . With white silk, and tbe M. A. a long black I silk hood, lined with white silk. At St. Andrew's the M. D. Is dark purple cloth, lined with cerise silk, and the M. B. Is pur ple silk, lined with cerlss and edged with white fur. The D. D. Is purpls cloth. lined with black. For awhile ln Scotland these hoods were in abeyance. i i An Auburn Parasol A San Rafael mother, with hair of a Titian hue, found it necessary to correct one of her little boys tor some trifling misdemeanor the other day. Ho took hla scolding with a very bad grace, and walked sullenly away mutter ing his opinion of red-haired people ln general and his mother ln particular. He waa called back and punished for hla sauclneas. • Now," said the mother, "don't let ma ever hear you say that I have red hair again, It is hot red—it la auburn." Yesterday the lady asked another ot her boys to go Into the house and get her naraaol "Which one. mamma!" he asked. "Tha red one?" . , ■ j .-. • "Dob I" exclaimed the younger brother, who bad been punished. "You mustn't say 'mam ma's 'rod parasol. It la mamma's 'auburn* parasol."—San Francisco Post OF INTEREST TO WOMEN. The girls must have their fads: they must "collect" something. Erstwhile It was ban gles; thee ten-cent pieces; then souvenir | spoons, and now it Is crests. ' The enthusiast who affects this latest fad provides herself with a black fan—the larger the better; then she proceeds to Importune her friends for their crests, and their friends' crests, and to make life a burden generally to her acquaintances, causing them to dread the sight of a daintily mono gramed note, as they know the denpoller lies in wait to secure the trophy even be fore tbe ronton.s of the missive have been mastered. These tho faddist cuts from the statlon try and pastes securely and artistically on JATJNTY AUTUMN WRAP, the ftaM hleck fan. and a nrettv nnri odd .lls- ' the said black (an, and a pretty and odd dis play -it having aa well tho means ot ' promoting conversation when other subjects are exhausted. The fair collector does not confine her self to crests and monograms—hotel paper headings, especially. If they be foreign ones, coats-of-arms of men's clubs, of col lei;es, names of prominent people's country places, ot steamships—all are grist to her mill. It is a curious fad. and like all such bears a moral, beirg a curious commentary on the craze for heraldry, which Is now so pre vailing, and of tbe desire among the "400" for some distinctive mark that will separate them from tbe common herd. —X — S—X— —X — On the occasion of the young Queen of Holland's blrthdav her Majesty has con ferred on one of her best-known female subjects, Miss Therese Sehwartze, the Or der of Orange-Nassau. Miss Sehwartze Is a distinguished painter, whose work Is highly esteemed ln Hollana and ln France. Her portrait of her sovereign was executed some years since, end tbe story goes that In order to hold the youthful Queen's atten tion she had to undertake to paint the por trait of the royal doll. —X — —X— —X— Cella Thaxter's rule for arranging flow ers was: "Large flowers of vivid tints can be put further away from the looker-on and yet lose none of their effectiveness nor be unseen. Bu' a line flower like the forgot me-not. or a cluster of heliotrope, would be tut rvi a mantel or high thelf. Put tbe delicate blotaoms where their dainty color, formt and perfume can appeal to every one, while the massed and gaudy splendor ot the l<irge flowers may serve to deck a dull cor ner, or light up a shady, somber room." —X — —X — —X — Rays a celebrated woman physician: "Tbe first thing I aay to a woman when she comes to me for advice and suggestion ts 'Turn your back to me.' It is remarkable how few women present a good-looking back, straight and shapely, with shoulder tips ln line, elbows not poking, hips even, and no protuberant shoulder-blade. One has so many resources to conceal an 111 --fltting front —one's arms and hands, a bow of ribbon, and the like; but the back is hopeless, and must be above reproach. The back :s not only the crucial test of a wo man's gown; it it also ths test of her gen eral appearance. A good back is very rare. Watch women ln the streets, and you will be surprised to see how few own one." Jewish woman are by no meant unrepre sented ln the world's progress. The first woman resident physician In a general hospital ln New York was a Jew ess, Dr. Josephine Walter. The first wo man dentist of Qermanv was a Jewess, Dr. Fanny Sternfeldt. The fifth training school for nuraes established In this coun try was founded by a Jewess, Mrs. Alma Hendricks of New York. Tho largest scholarship ever bestowed on an art stu dent was given by a Jewess, Mrs. J. H. Lazarus of New York. May Abrams hat become the first woman factory Inspector In London, and the latest projected move ment ln New York to empower trained nurses to become Inspectors of tenement districts has been started by a Jewesa —X— —X— —X— A Glasgow lady has had a singular ex perience. About tbe beginning of Novem ber last she paid a hurried visit to her busi ness premises, and while there lost the diamond from a favorite ring. Search was made everywhere for the precious stone. The shop was given an extra sweep, the dutt placed In a "hair" sieve and washed, but not a trace.of the lost Jewel was got. Concluding that the diamond waa gone for good, the ring was reset, and the loss al most forgotten, when the owner's daughter, who had accompanied her to the shop on the occasion, remarked, "Mother; tbere's something ln the heel' of mf right boot which catches the carpet every stop I take." "See what It Is," wat tho reply; and there, firmly Imbedded In the solid leather, was the missing diamond. Singularly enough, during the past tWo months the young lady hid been at the country and walked over the hard, macadamized roads.

What she should do, according to these censors, of course, is to glue her elbows to her sides and to take ladylike stept. However, ath letics ts likely more and more to claim the homage of woman, and It is more than possible that ere long convention will per mit her arms to swing as freely as do those of hsr brother, and when that time arrives one more woman "mystery" will be dissipated. ■ ■—x— I —if— —I— TTpjfo-date women are rejoicing In furni ture stained—not painted—all tbe colon of the rainbow. And energetic women are do ing tho staining themselves. The wood must be Hght-T-oak, maple, yellow or white pine— and the more grained the better, at th* heavy markings come out particularly well through the translucent color. By sending a special order to the manufacturers it la easy to get sets of furniture without paint or varnish, but if it is an old piece that is to be renovated, it must be thoroughly scraped. Put the stain on quite thick and rub it off with a linen or cotton rag.' A coat of hard oil finish may be applied as a filler, and then, after ft Is dry, it should b« rubbed all over with the prepared bees wax that comes In cant for floors. After the wax Is rubbed on It should be allowed to harden before polishing It with a flannel cloth till it Is quite shiny and bright. The most fashionable stain at present is a good old-fashioned regular green, which when rubbed well into the pores of the wood and polished, Is really beautiful. The two transparent colors, Prussian blue and raw sienna, make, when mixed together an excellent green, or If a brighter tint Is" de sired, gamboge and Prussian blue. A very little of the latter goes a great way, as It ts altogether the most powerful color known. Prussian blue alone makes a very pretty peacock blue satin, raw sienna a yellow or orange, according to tbe amount ot color used, crimson lake a lovely red, burnt sienna an almost exact imitation of sew mahogany. In staining It should be borne ln mind that It is not paint, but stain, and that a very little should be used, a pound being sufficient to stain a whole set of furniture, —x— —X— —X— Tho Judgment of men Is apt to he warped by \sentlment and feeling. In Scotland th* pevWe abominated hymns simply because the Episcopalians used them. The Presby terians sang only the Psalms of David. The Episcopalians used stained glass In their church windows, and for that reason the Scotch looked upon stained glass aa something of unholy origin.
