Wild roses or any other large blossoms make-lhe best pattern, and the coloring ahould be sufficiently strong to be re tained through the overdress. The un dersiip is made in two pieces—skirt and bodice. The skirt should have little fullness about the waist, but a plenty of it at the foot. To still further assist It in standing out below, it should have three four-inch flounces about the bot tom. The Ibodice should be shaped like that of an evening gown—with round neck «nd no sleeves. Having finished the underslip, the gown proper next requires attention. That can best be done by dropping gen eralities and telling of a pale blue lawn gown, worn with an underslip of green ■prayed with wild roses.

Its mission in life is to provide for the traveler and those who cycle anil play golf. For travelers there are jackets of two kinds—a short basqued model, with tight-fitting back and loose, box fronts, and a sacque-back coat of great er length. The latter is also worn by cyclists and golf players. There is little new about the first model. It is similar to that worn last year, with the exception of the sleeves, which are rather small. The coloring, too, is changed, for one may now wear a jacket of the shade known as the "huntsman's pink," although it is too startling for use by any but the pos sessor of an unlimited wardrobe. The second model is decidedly chic, and may be made of any material— and what is better yet, may easily be madei by the amateur. This jacket, of which the picture gives a front view, back and front equally loose. It [ is single-breasted, has a high stand ing collar, anil fastens with impressive I buttons of white pearl.

Leg few horn and Panama hats, that a weeks ago were laden with purest white or the most delicate of colorings, are now overburdened with a mass of thick roses, shading from plush pink to a deep black purple.

In his new and interesting book on "Equality," published by D. Appleton <b Co.. Edward Bellamy takes the fol lowing glimpse into the future a3 re lating to the question of dress: The extretoely delicate tints of Edith's eostuni't* It'd me to remark that the color effects of the modern dress seemed to-be in general very light as 'compared with tl(Ose which prevailed in my day? t V., • "The result," 1 said, "is extremely pleasing, but if you will excuse a rather prosaic suggestiou, it occurs to me that wjth the whole nation given over to wearing these delicate schemes of col or, the accounts for washing must be prêfty large. I should suppose they would swamp the national treasury if laundry bills are anything like what they used to be." Sjpoubtless we could not do much else' if we washed our clothes," she said; »'but you see we do not wash them." "Not wash them! Why not?'' "Because we don't think it nice to wear clothes again after they have been so much soiled as to need wash iug" "Well, X won't say that I am sur prised," I replied; "in fact, I think X am no longer capable of being sur prised at anything; but perhaps you will kindly tell me what you do with a dress when it becomes soiled." "We throw it away—that is, it goes back to the mills to be made into some thing else." "Indeed! To my nineteenth-century Intellect, throwing away clothes would seem even more expensive than wash In g it." "Oh. no, much less so. "What do you suppose, now, this costume of mine cost?" "I don't know, I'm sure. I never had a wife to pay dressmakers' bills for, but X should say certainly it cost a great deal of money." "Such costumes cost from ton to twenty cents," said Edith. "What do you suppose it is made of?" I took the edge of her mantle be tween my fingers. "X thought it was silk or fine linen," I replied, "but I see it is not. Doubt less it is some new fiber." "We have discovered many new fibers, but it is rather a question of process than material that I had in mir.d. This is not a textile fabric at all, but paper. That is the most com mon material for garments nowa days." "But—but*" I exclaimed, "what if it lt « ' "is not meant for stormy weather, and >ga$«nents we have a papey that jç ab-? solutel^impervious to moisture on (limiter surface. should come on to rain on these paper clothes? Would they not melt, and at a little strain would they not part?" "A costume such as this," said Edith, yet it would by no means melt in a rain storm/however severe. For storm As to toughness think yon would find it as hard to tear this paper as any ordinary cloth. The fabric is so strengthened with fiber as fabric is so strengthened with fiber as to hold together very stoutly." "But in winter, at least, when you need warmth, you must have to fall buck on your old friend, the sheep." "You mean garments made of sheep's hair? Oh, no; there is no modern use for them. Porous paper makes a gar ment quite as warm as woolen could, and vastly lighter than the clothes you had. Nothing but eider-down could have been at once so warm and light as our winter coats of paper." "And cotton!—linen! Don't tell me that they have been given up, like wool ?" "Oh, no; we weave fabrics of thesé and other vegetable products, and they are nearly as cheap as paper, but paper is so much lighter and more easily fashioned into all shapes that it is gen erally preferred for garments. But at any rate, we should consider no ma terial fit for garments which could not be thrown away after being soiled. The idea of washing and cleaning articles of bodily use and using them again would be quite intolerable. over For this reason, while we want beau tiful garments, we distinctly do not want durable ones. In your day, it worse than the practice of seems, even washing garments to be used again, you were in the habit of keeping your ■outer garments without washing at ail, not only day after day, but week after week, year after year, sometimes whole lifetimes, when they were spe cially valuable, and finally, perhaps, giving them away to others, thn' women sometimes kept their wed ding dresses long! enough for their daughters to wear at their weddings. That would seem shocking to us, and yet, even your fine ladies did such things. As for what the poor had to do in the way of keeping and wearing their olil clothes till they went to rags, that is something won't bear thinking of."

Ayer's pills are not designed to spur the liver into a momentary activity, leaving it in yet more incapable condition after the immediate effect is. past.
