Saltahle Costumes for Growing -Girls. General FnMilon Notes. Spcciul Correspondence. New Yoiik, Jan. 5. We aro told ,'jnst now tluvt wo are iii an economical period aa regards dress, and that tho lady who can invent new ways to wear a few clothes so that sho shall seem to have unlimited quantities is the heroine of her set. We are gravely counseled by the dressmaker to be economically elegant, and how? Well, she says that fashion tures, as well as small checks in the colors mentioned. Red is worn Borne, and so is light Havana brown, and for dressy occasions they wear the same I light and delicate shades and nice light wools and silks that their elder sisters do. But they are made extremely girl ish and never low necked for American girl?. No American girl wears a low dress until sho is really "out." No young girl under sixteen ever wears a bonnet anywhere, or a velvet or bro cade wrap or cloak. The hats differ lit tle from those worn by young ladies and children under twelve, partaking a little of each. The hair should bo worn in a long braid until tho girl is about fifteen and then tied up to fonn a catagan braid. The front hair can be simply banged, curled or combed plainly back. Olivk IIaepek. CHIMMIE FADDEN PHILOSOPHIZES. THE AVAILABLE OOWN. changes so rapidly that, basques being oat, we mus take those basques, which -really are but elongated waists after all, and drape them around with a sort of sash in the Louis XIII style, or if it is preferred wo can make the skirt come trp on the outside of the waist, thus mak ing it round. In that case a little saah drapery is necessary. , v One dressmaker, who makes for the very brownest part of the upper crust of BOcietv, hits evolved what she calls the available gown. The skirt is cut plain gored" and trimmed around the bottom aa suits the owner. It is desirable that it should have some perpendicular trim ming, which on the sides . raises to let the adjustable train button on and hide the buttons after. The train is trimmed in a different manner from the ' front. Under the train is a plain full plaited biick of tho same material, so that when the train is off the dress is walking length. The train fastens just between tho shoulders, so as to hang VVatteau fashion, and has a little rosette, tinder which are two stout hoops, which fasten to strong eyelets. The corsage is so arranged that it can be low or high in tho neck, as one may or may not remove the chiffon gimp. If tins plan were to be developed for a married lady, it would be better to have the corsago of the same material as the ekirt and trimmed to correspond. Ad justable trains have always had a useful place in a lady's toilet, and it seems to me that tins is a good plan to work by It would require rather rich and stately looking material to look well for this costume. With this gown a long wrap of shot velvet or velours du nord or of brocade would b: unliable, but no jacket, coat or eb.cn. So taking it all around, unleeo the lat.y has a selection of velvet or fcrcciid" wrnps on hand to choose from, it wouldn't be such an economy. Pelerines of cloth bound with hand some f.ir on.iach of their Bupfrposed capos are very dressy and handsome, and make a rich aud elegant wrap for anyone from grandmother down to little peach blossom. There pre many varieties of the peler ine. One of the most popular is that stylo wovn by the young girl in the cen ter of the picture. The capes comedown to the wr.it line, and the collar and lap els are of fur, while the rest of the gar ment is like an ordinary loose coat. Some call these capelinos and some pel erines, but r.:ry are equally warm and stylish, called by either mime. During the pa.st decade mon attention has been paid to snitablo costumes for girls from twelve to sixteen than ever before. For plump little ones there are hundreds of diiTerent fancies, and for older ones whose figurs are developed there is no end to the designs, but until lately the growing girl was not provided with raiment designed to hide her lack of figure or to make the most of tlio slender grace :f youth. WORK OF WOMEN. STYLES FOR YOUNO GIRLS. Now there is every imaginable kind Of garments that are suitable for them. The dress skirts have an arrangement of trimming that distracts the eye from un due slimness, and the waist is draped in looeo folds, with deep nifties or lerthes; fashes, bows and full vest also are de voted to them. The Eton jacket is a dainty and favorite style. The Figaro jacket and the baby waist over a guinipo are pretty and often worn. Plaid, with lapels of velvet, with foot bands or per pendicular trimming, are all suitable for them for nice home or school gowns. The colors most in vogue for yonng girls are th, blue, brown and mix- They Will Be First In Readiness for th Opening of the World's Fir. Special Correspondence. Chicago, Jan. 5. The women man agers of the World's fair still hold un disputed sway xn the big Rand-Mcally building on Adams street. Many 6f the other important departments controlled by the dominant sex have been removed to Jackson park, and during the zero weather that has been prevailing of late Director General George B. Davis, Pro moter Moses P. Handy, Chief of Con struction Daniel H. Bnrnham and others of the heads of departments, with the rank and filo of the army of attaches that are subject to their direction and control, have found it necessary to put on an extra comforter, equip thomselvos with ear muffs and respirators and give the collars of their overcoats a pull up ward about their necks before starting for Jackson park, where, unobstructed by the labyrinth of skvscraping build ings that help to protect the pedestrians in the center of the city, the chilling blasts from the northern peninsula, rush ing down Lake Michigan, strike land just thereabouts and are free to carom around at their own sweet will. And so it is that with headquarters in the conter of the city, with steam heat. electric lights and a restaurant on the floor below, and all the other adjuncts of a modern office building, the ladies or rather, as they prefer to call themselves. tne women of the World s fair are en joying just now something of a more comfortablo time of it than their male associates. And here they will continue to hold court until the frost and the snow have given way before the balmy winds of gentle spring and the ice has disappeared from the placid bosom of Lake Michigan. Then the ladies will make a dicker with the captain of one of the numerous boats that will be plying between the Lake park arid the White City, and their morning and evening trips upon the water, to the tuneful mu- kBic of the lute, and the harp, and maybe a piano, if room can be found for one in the cabin, will tinge the daily coming and going with the fragranoe of a ro mance on the Venetian canals. Fortu nate indeed will be those of the mascu line gender, should there be any, that are privileged to accompany them. And a busy hive of women it is. We are rapidly drifting away from the fos silized idea that women are not fitted for any part or parcel of business affairs: that they are of the household, and that their place should bo in the household. If only the scenes and doings day by day of the suite of offices within which the busi ness of this department is conducted could be uncovered and held up before the gaze of the civilized world the drifting would be still more rapid The national legislature made no mis take when it endowed the women with supreme authority to manage their own affairs, and the women propose to vindi cate the confidence that was thus reposed m them and to justify tho most signal recognition of their sex that has yet been given by any nation or people. Just as the Woman's building was the first of 11 the structures at the White City to receive its roof and to be prepared for its contents, so tho women will be the first in the van in all the detail and ram ifications of the receiving and installing of exhibits and the first to announce that, so far as they are concerned, every thing is in decency and good order for that bright May morning when Grover Cleveland, by the grace of God, will touch tho electric button, the wheels of tho machinery will begin to revolve, and the Columbian exposition will have passed through all its preparatory stages into a fixed and actual existence. The women of nearly every state and territory in tho Union and of nearly every foreign monarchy and republic are in constant communication with this unobtrusive department unobtrusive because it is doing a great work and making little noise about it. It has only three rooms, furnished with nine desks, presided over by nine women from as many states, but it is the center around which is just now revolving the patriotic impulse's of the women of many lands. Here in the daily mails come reports from American queens and foreign queens queens of the republic and queens of nations by virtue of their royal lineage. Every envelope has its Btory of success; every visitor and Sec retary Susan G. Cooke is sometimes called upon to give audience to hundreds of them in a single day is brimful Of enthusiasm. Around the secretary's den are ar ranged over two score specimens of the most artistic carvings in wood that per haps have ever been gathered together. Each one represents a commonwealth, each its respective forestry, each is the handiwork of a woman. One that at tracts the most attention testifies to the genius of a girl who is hardly yet out of Bhort skirts. These are to form the wainscoting of the assembly room of the Woman's building, and no matter how numerous or valuable or ingenious the collective exhibits on the floor below the American "woman will be able to point to the wainscoting above and to say to her foreign sisters with exulta tion and with pride, "See what the handi work of our maidens has brought forth."
