Violets and primroses and the curling fronds of fero are now peeping out along the street given up to the salo and display of the things mado especially for tho adorn ment of lovely woman- Lilies of the valley are there, too, not so much, I fancy, for actual uso as to invite the im agination of the beholders to wander .long tho line of thonght leading to the CLOTH A.VD MOIKE CEEPON" GOWNS. counters whero tho spring novelties ar being choicely displayed. And how pretty the new spring goods are! They are the apotheosis of what has been be fore, but with something beyond and finer or fairer in some indefinable way. The now spring and summer crepons simply stagger one, there are so many varieties, weaves, crinkles and colors. There" is one called "elephant," and It is plain drab gray, rough and of tho exact appearance of an elephant's hide, even to the occasional lonesome hair sticking out at intervals. There is an other which is inoro transparent than any yet shown, and this has eballow crinkles over a rolled and billowy sur facein fact, it is called "billow." This pattern, or weave, is very curious in tho piece, but I do not think it is go ing to look as well when made up. These, whero there are square blocks and tufts thrown up sharply, and with an underlying tint of a different color, aro very taking. They will make up beautifully. An innovation is the printed crepon. I saw one pattern yesterday whero there was a delicate design of tiny sprouting wintergroen leaves, blossoms and ber ries, with loose bits of dried moss lying carelessly among them. TJiisd:n v:: wrought out extremely small, none of the leaves being half its natural bize. Tho whole effect, from two yards dis tance, was a delicate mottled and in distinct pattern, and this was rendered still more shadowy by the crinkles, which must have been put in somehow alter the pattern was printed. There were several other designs quito as dain rr and smalL There are hundreds of solid colored crepons, from the heart rending magenta red to pale fawn and black, through the whole list1 of color and tint. There are two toned crepons in dozens of new crinkles, and they aro made indiscriminately of cotton, wool and silk. Some of them aro craped, and over that there is a distinct moire. In one window there was a figure in a moire crepon of a tender moss green. The skirt was plain and full and had two deep points down the side of point de venise ecru, ending in.a green bow the exact shade of tho gown. The waist was a combination of laco and the cre pon, with a little moss green velvet across tho bust. At the throat there was stock bow cf pale pink crepo lisse, sad a draped stock collar of the same. Tho blouse waists appear to bo more popular than ever if one may judge by the astonishing number and variety now displayed. There aro fluffy enormities in crepe lisso, chiffon, silk muslin and all sorts of diaphanous stuffs in silks of every degree, cost, color and kind. Plaids and figures are seen, so aro moires and plain silks, and the new soft two toned silks, not exactly changeable, but hold ing two colors, however, that glint and gleam fitfully in wondrous beauty. Any lady can wear any kind of waist that pleases her with any skirt. She can wear in turn a dozen different waists to one skirt, and she can havo skirt and corsage to match. I noted some novelties in waists. One was of deep prune faille, which is to be used rather more than it has been, 1 think. The waist is plain, and there is NEW SILK WAISTS. vest of studded silk muslin. Down ?ach'side is a row cf black jet buttons, brother was of old rose taffeta, with lice yoke and caps to tho sleeves. An other was of pale blue crepo do chine, lso with a laco bertha pelerine. These are entirely new and very dressy. Of visiting gowns tho prettiest I have ccn this season i3 a navy,B. 15. blue cloth, very lustrous and plain as to skirt. Ahe waist ha3 a plastron and slashed collar of black velvet, bordered with a narrowband of mink. Tho waist is out JJued with the fur and has two heads Jt the front. I think the gas is escaping irom all the sleeves a little, and that in wnKequonce they are growing somewhat mailer. Olive Haeper. l!vt-K-if.KR 7r cent a month. THE PIANO ACCO.V.:- AN1ST. Some of the NomTom and Vuriwfl Acquire ment Ncnry. Few listeners havo any adequato com prehension of tho arduous and responsi ble duties devolving upon tho person who is modestly placed as accompanist The requirements of an accompanist are numerous and varied and demand a much greater amount of attention and study than is generally supposed or than the exponent of the art of accompanying is credited with giving. lie must bo a quick and accurate reader, able to read ily grap the intention of the composer as in progress the ideas of the composi tion are unfolded. To this end the phras ing must be correct, and the quality of the touch employed must be such as will produce the tone required to prop erly represent the sentiment expressed by the composer. While having a fairly decided conception of his own, he must bo prepared to absorb the conception felt by tho soloist, and so mold his own ideas that they blend with those of the soloist and form a complete and well developed background to the musical picture of which the solo is the central figure. In carrying out this design great care is necessary, so that the soloist re ceives just the proper amount of sup port. The acompaniment should not force or override the solo; neither must it bo of that dragging character which causes the singer to feel as if pulling a heavy burden up a steep incline. To preserve this "happy medium" is, says a writer in The Etude, tho crucial test of a true accompanist, and the possession of such ability may well condone the lack of some other traits. For tho timo being soloist and accompanist should bo as one. To accomplish this desirable result tho player should havo as complete knowledge of the composition as tho singer. Whilo ho must be a correct timist, it is necessary to possess that flexibility of temperament that will enable him to flow along with tho principal through bars of everchauging value, irrespective of what tho time signature may be. Of courso ho must bo able to transpose to meet tho requirements of pianos of in correct pitch or tho effect of tho weath er upon tho voice of tho soloist. Movable Wall Uecoratlon. Too much reliance is placed upon pic tures for wall spaces. Some pictures aro not decorative at all for example, small water color drawings with broad whito margins. More may bo cIuiim by tho usa of small hanging mirrors, Vt:;'jtian cr I pi kmk ARTICLES FOR WALL DECOISATIOXS. chippendale in style, and wall cabinets or brackets carrying fine china and tho uso of sconces, which havo tho great ad vantago of being a means of lighting the room and rendering the enemy gas unnecessary. Numbered with wall decorations of tho kind referred to. Decorator and Fur nisher gives illustrated descriptions cf a chippendalo mirror in mahogany, which is partly gilt, two brass sconces mado of tho lids of old time warming pans, with sockets for candle illumina tion, and a hanging wall bracket in walnut, backed with stamped leather showing some pieces of tino porcelain. Other objects, equally effective, suggest themselves to ambitious women with artistic tastes. The Hot Water Bag:. When tho india rubber hot water bag is as inexpensive as it is at present, it becomes almost a duty to possess one. Tho water to fill them is always attain able, and the comfort of tho possession will amply repay tho expense. Fre quently they rolievo pain in a far sim pler and more effectual manner than does any medicine. A bag placed on the sido of the neuralgio face will causa tho blood to flow to that part and bring nourishment to tho starving nervo. A fit of indigestion may bo overcome in n similar manner. The weak heart may bo assisted by a very scantily filled bag being placed under the left arm against the side. Then, again, 6ays a writer in Good Housekeeping, carefully concealed in its dark colored bag, what a comfort able companion for a long, cold country drive! Always soothing, never contra dictory, it is actually a life saving ma china rjoaeholl Hints. A rug, from a sanitary point of view, is more desirablo than a carpet in tht bedroom. In tho dining room a stained floor and large center rug will be found more convenient than any ail over carpet. If the boards of a bare floor do not fit perfectly, fill in tho spaces with putty previous to painting cr staining the floor Fleck papers are a department of wall paper production that have won a commanding reputation for excellence and beauty. Old fashioned denims make service able rugs for bathrooms. Very few colors in upholstery mate rial aro proof against tho fading power of sunlight. The orange peeler is a practical nov elty presented this reason by a New York silversmith. It neatly removes the peel without soiling the fingers. Iv-i;r t-.irupfl at C'ruztTH Office. Ladies' Column.
