_ SUITS These Are Now Considered Indispensable Adjuncts to a Well Ordered Wardrobe. GREAT DEMAND FOR HANDWORK Sleeves Getting Fuller With the Shoulder Line Long —Some Fashionable Materials. Tor some season's pas; the shirtwaist suit has been fashion's favorite, but never before has it been so much a favor ite as this spring. It has taken unto Itself all the newest and daintiest nud prettiest wrinkles on the market, and the result is ns claiming a little gown as one 'could imagine. The primary idea upon which the shirtwaist sua was originated has almost been lost sight of, apparently, in the multiplicity of frills and flounces, laces and embroideries, shirrings and eordings which are evi dent on the dressiest of the models. Of course, the plainer .LtvHElfl are often seen, but the fancy of the moment calls for the very fluffiest and daintiest of designs. On all hands the shopkeepers aid and abet this • fancy ■ by- displaying silks, linens, ehambrays, voiles and a thousand other materials which are just the thing for these latest shirtwaist suits, which are to be worn on very nearly all occasions, some of them being almost dressy enough for a wedding, and others plain enough for a funeral. While the term shirtwaist suit or cos tume is applied generieally, never before has there been a season when such lat itude was permissible in styles. Of course, the main and leading outlines of current styles are observed, but in -the little details which make for indi viduality in gowning the smart girl with ideas of her own never had such a field for her originality before. The amount of handwork which these Informal costumes demand just as soon as one begins to think of getting away from the beaten track is almost incredi ble. All of the craft known to needle work is brought into play, and there is nit a variety of stitch upon the card which has not its due representation. The Russian cross-stitch, with which one can work either the simplest or the most elaborate of patterns, and, indeed, either is equally good this season, is a prime favorite for the wash gowns. Cut out work, with the edges of the cut pat tern heavily buttonholed, finds many and various applications, but principally in a color contrast. On the linen gowns, white is cut over the gown of ecru, pink, * blue eor the cool looking greens, and in some instances the buttonholing is done in colored threads. The shirtwaist suits of the Shantungs, pongees and others of that class, on the contrary, show the colored embroideries as quite the correct thing, and the JJer sian and Chinese embroideries, in all their richness and glamour of Oriental colorings, make the eostumes-mot only a thing of joy and beauty, but of much ex pense likewise. Fringes, too, are finding a wide ac ceptance in the newer designs. In the case of a combination with colored em broideries they are usually composed of strands of the colored threads, whether of silk, linen or cotton, but there are not lacking examples where the mono tone or one-color fringe really affords the smartest effect after all. As to mode and manner of its application, welL that is where the ingenuity of the designer-dressmaker comes in. One noticeable feature in all of the shirtwaist costumes designed for wear by the really smart girls is that the fit around the hips is close without being at all snug, the necessary “flare” at the hem being assured by a broad braid or velveteen binding. There is more dis tinct style in the shirtwaist of today than in all the vlong years since it first dawned upon us. Tb* fit of the belt or girdle is a matter of supreme importance in the success of the gown, and it is best fashioned upon a featberbone founda tion. Of course, the long shoulder line is one of the most prominent features of the new blouse, and in so dianyiustances this is so cleverly handled that the shoulder seam is eliminated altogether. Either the shallow yoke—for the deep yoke has taken itself to regions unknown to present styles—is extended half way down the arm or else the sleeve is so cut that it runs up to the neckband and includes such a yoke as may be needed to till out the design. In the few instances where the shoul der seam is still necessary, every possi ble trimming scheme is used to cover it up. Military looking' epaulette, all sorts at shoulder collars, round, square, vandyked, pointed, strapped, and the thousand and one other designs which will readily suggest themselves to the clever designer—these will be eealled into requisition to hide the shoulder seam and lengthen the line from the neck to the wrist. The girl who is observant of Dame Fashion’s passing whims wifi not be slow to realize that the sleeves are get ting fuller and more bouffant through out their entire length. Instead of the close fitting cap, which formerly headed the fulness, they are now boldly plaited or shirred into the arm-size. And speak ing of the arm-size, the very newest de signs show that instead of a fair-sized round hole, some quarter of a yard in circumference, to which a round sleeve was attached, the arm-siez in the new long shoulder patterns looks like a slit in the material; and the amateur dress maker is called upon to exercise her faith in the pattern ere she can convince her self that this is indeed the armhole. " ith the longer shoulder line and the consequent lessening of the size of the armhole, the matter of dress shields be comes imperative, and even the girl who has never before found need of them would better order them in her shirt waist costume this summer. For the silk or pongee gown, that which makes frequent visits to the laundry, the up to-date girl will find solid comfort in the washable dress shields, .which may be laundered right in the shirtwaist, with out even a stitch being unpicked. However, to return to our shirtwaist gown. For the early season wear the Shantungs, those heavy and rather coarse examples of pongee, will be a good ehoiee. This year they are to be seen dyed in all the colors of the rain bow, and ont a few more besides. There is a shade of pinkish mauve, just that exquisite tint one sees in certain orchids, which is especially fashionable and which lends itself heautifully to almost any color scheme of trimming or em broidery that may be tried upon it. One in this material and coloring has a scarf ides worked in pale blue, brown, scar let, green and gold upon the mauve background, these scarfs hanging from the round shoulder collar and also pass ing down the seams of the skirt. Fringes of the colorings, but with white predom inating. make an effective finish to the pointed ends. TONES AND MATERIALS. Cesrie Alpaca Cbuthm and Hop •acklas—Pale Colors. Coarse alpaca and canvases are ex cellent for hard wear, and voile, t ., of a heavier make will be used foi tailor mades of the dressier style. Can vases promise to be more fashionable than cheviots.

Brown will continue popular foi some time to come, for leading dress makers are even making silk tailoi mades of it for summer wear. Bright shades of periwinkle and elec tric blue are giving way to darker blue tones, which are always smart for country and seashore wear. A great deal of old fashioned em broidery is being used on bands of taf feta in pastel shades. These form panels and yoke pieces on silk or crepe de chine gowns. » Pastel toilets, soft combinations ot pale pink, pale blue and pale yellow ot pale green are particularly becoming to brunettes and lend themselves well to the Louis XV. fashions now in vogue. The cut shows a pale gray cloth tailor made. The blouse has a wide yoke, coming well over the shoulders. The fullness gathered Into this falls over a wide belt. The skirt is very full and has an odd buttoned fronl panel. • JUDIC CHOLLET. THE BEST KNOWN-KNOWN AS THE BES1 such Mince Me,„ Packages with List of Valuable Premiums. THE (MUM CIOABETTE [Original.] “What’s the meaning of this crowd?" I asked of a railroad official at the Charing Cross station, London. “The Ilustian, sir." “What Eussian?” “Don’t know, sir. He’s some big man in bis country. These people are to see him off, sir. He’s going home.” I stepped into the Compartment where I had engaged a seat. There I found two elderly women with several children, all of one party. Beyond, by a window, sat a young woman whose appearance interested me at once. Never have I seen such ftn expression on any human face. The only descrip tion I can give of it is that it reminded me of a picture 1 had once seen of an early Christian martyr who had nerved herself to be buried alive. But this gives only a vague idea of the woman’s whole appearance. She was well dressed, and her features and bearing Indicated one of the highest class. It was impossible for her to conceal a mental restlessness that showed itself especially In the eyes, which were constantly moving. The train made but one stop between London and Folkestone,, where the party of women and children got out, leaving only me and the woman I have been trying' to describe in the com partment “Thank heaven,” she Baid to me in a contralto voice, “they are gone! I am sure you will not Object to my smoking a cigarette In this compartment, though it is not a smoker.” “Certainly not, madam.” “You speak French?” she asked in that language. I assured'her that I did, and after that we conversed in the French lan guage. I took out some cigarettes and lighted one to keep her company, but she insisted on my smoking one of hers, which, she said, had been made expressly for her from a recipe fur nished by a member of the suit of the sultan of Turkey. I threw mine awaf and took one of hers. I knew at once that it contained opium, but how much or what other drugs I did not know. One thing I did know. I was rapidly passing into a delightful trance, which every whiff seemed to make still more delightful. I saw the tom1"' watching me, and when she wftf satinned that I was powerless she opened a hand bag beside her and took out something rolled in brown paper, opened it, took out a wedge shaped piece of wood and, seizing my chin, opegpd my mouth and gagged me. This done, she took out a timetable, which she scanned, looked at her watch, cast a glance out of the win dow, then momentarily gave way to a terrible depression. I Judged that she was obliged to wait lor something, and on the eve of some move—one involv ing life and death, for instance—there \is nothing like dhlay to break one down. I noticed that we were passing through a thickly settled .district and that as soon as v£e had passed again into the country she negyed herself and prepared for something she was about to do. Her first afct Was to disrobe. But in stead of displaying the undergarments of a woman she lay bare a man’s out er clothing. Her woman's attire was merely a covering, which she threw out of the window. Next'she took a glass globe about two inches in diam eter from her satchel, and the satchel followed the clothing. Then she—or rather he, for by this time I had made up my mind that the person was a young man—cast a glance at me which’ seemed to satisfy him, took another look at his watch, peered out at the passing landscape and after casting up his eyes and muttering a prayer climbed out of the window and let him self down on the footboard. Had I not been under the influence of opium I Should have been profouridly moved by all this. As it was it seem ed but a part of my dream, and the moment the singular being passed out of it he was forgotten. I remember be ing Jarred by an explosion, but did not at the time connect it with the young man. Whatever occurred was hushed up. When we reached Folkestone a guard was obliged to carry ink on to the channel boat, and I did not come to myself again before we reached Boulogne. I did not get an oppor tunity to interview any of the passen gers, and the whole affair was to me something of a mystery. Indeed I fan cied I had dreamed it under the influ ence of an opium cigarette. If a bomb was really exploded with a view to kill ing the Russian official in another com partment, it failed. My theory, based on the view that it was * real occur rence, was that the assailant dropped the bomb before he was ready to ex plode it in or under the compartment occupied by the Russian. Two years afterward I was in St. Petersburg standing in a crowd watch ing for the emperer to pass on his way to review some of his trfcops. Among the members of his staff I saw a face that astonished me. I never forget faces, and I certainly could never for get this one. It was the face of the young man who had drugged me on the train between Boulogne and Folke stone. Happening te glance down upon me, he caught my astonished glance, which doubtless helped him to recog nize me. The cavalcade passed on, and I returned to my hotel. That night I was trying vainly to sleep, for I was troubled about peing recognized as a nihilist and been rec ognized by him In the czar’s suit, when there was a knock on the door, and a man entered. “There Is a midnight train for the border,” he said. “Get Up and take It ” , 1 In an hour I was on the train with my visitor, who saw me late another country.

Prom the Bngftieer in Charge:— Jersey City, March 31, 1904. Honorable Board of Street and Water Commissioners:— “Gentlemen:— Gentlemen—During March weather conditions have been such as, in the main, to preclude outdoor work on the new water supply. At the main dam some ' work has been done on the delivery gatehouse, and on the 25th work was started, in a small way, on the main wall. Mucking work \in Watchung tunnel, to bring invert to snb-grade, has, how ever, gone on during all the month, with the result that the required excavations will probably be completed about the 7th of April. During the month the masonry dam has been gone over at different times and given the closest inspection in order to ascertain hew the large mass had been affected by the past severe weather. As was to have been expected, a few temperature cracks were located, one at Station 9-|-45, three-Sixteenths of an inch in width at top of dam and ex tending irregularly and with diminishing width down both faces; one at Station 24-1-85, a scant one-eighth of an inch wide on top of dam, with some diminish ing characteristics op both faces, and four, respectively, at Stations 19-I-75, 20-1-30, 21-1-00. and 21-|-79, very slight hair cracks showing only on the top and for a slight distance on the faces. The only thing remarkable is, not that these cracks should have occurred, but that they are so few and so slight. When last gone over on the 28th inst. the four slight hair cracks, even with the moderate increase in temperature, had ‘taken up’ so as hardly to be discern ible. It may be as well to state that these ‘temperature cracks’ could in no way impair the stability and reliability of the data would still remain in place so proportioned that, to take an extreme case, a section of a foot in length, or even a series of such sections, if sawed down from top to bottom so as to be en tirely out of contact with the remainder of the dam would stil remain in place and resist the pressure due to a full stor age basin. Of course, however, it is desirable that the water face of the dam should be made tight and the cracks, so far as they extend in from the face, filled with cement grout. When, how ever, I took into consideration the size of the dam and the quantity of water impounded, together with the great re sponsibility running along with its main tenance, notwithstanding my absolute confidence as to the comparatively tri fling importance of the defects, I felt that not even a suspicion should be al lowed to exist as to the character of the work or as to its reliability. I there fore deemed it proper to invite the ad visory engineer, Mr. E. Keuchling, to accompany Mr. Hall and myself to Boonton on the 28th inst. so that he could give the matters a personal exam ination. I am glad that Mr. Keuchling fully co “neided with my views of the situation. On conference it was decided that the four fine hair cracks needed no treat ment and that all that was desirable or expedient to be done with the two larger ones was some cutting out caulking and pointing up mi the water face, a little exploration a%ng the line of the cracks on top thereafter forcing in grout, under considerable pressure at the bottom so as to rise and fill up any spaces in the cracks not reached by the caulking. The contractor .has been advised as to the remedial treatment on recommend. As a number of temperature cracks mainly at section junctions, existed in the core wall of Parsippanv dike, Mr. Keuchling also accompanied us there. The same conclusions,, were reached at that point—that the smaller ones re quired no treatment and that the larger ones should be cut out and plastered up. The contractor has 'been so advised and says the remedial work desired will be performed. It was thereafter decided that we should all visit and inspect the new Cro ton dam in order to ascertain if the ex perience there confirmed or opposed our conclusions. The trip was made on the 31st of March. It was found that they had temperature cracks in their dam: that in no way were they considered as reflecting upon the method of construc tion or as affecting in any way the stabil ity and reliability of the dam and that their remedial treatment was akin to that we hac^yecommended. Respectfully submitted, GARWOOD FERRIS, Engineer in Charge. Received and referred to Committee on New Water Works. REPORT OF THE CLERK.
