Ing ready ensh to replenish nnd also to
rualco room for new stock. All tho best
houses do this, nnd nil standard goods
chango littlo with thrco or four seasons,
so that it is worth hunting for such vnl
uablo gamo. And besides, thcro nro
remnants big enough for combinations,
and children's clothes for almost nothing
compared to tliu original cost. Thcso
littlo bargain hunters know this district
It Is estimated that ono million women
mako the tour of this retail dry goods
routo daily, nnd I bciiovo It, only 1 think
from tho constant crowd, twenty and
thirty deep, from morning till night,
that tho number is underestimated.
I Every ono of thcso women will spend
all tho money she has, and if her hus
band's credit Is good sho will spend
moro yet and havo tho bill sent In, so
that a safo avcrago is that every on
will spend a dollar a day. That makes
a comfortablo sum a month, uon t itr
It keeps tho men's noses to tho grind
stone, and that is good for them, for if
they wero not doing something useful
they might get into mischief.
Tho newest silks of this season aro a
soft armuro, nnd tho plain gros gralnB,
with a satiny ribbed finish; neau do sole,
which is soft and clastic; faillo Francaiso
and many styles and colors of brocades,
nearly an nnproacmng mo ancient suits.
Thero aro also moires and surahs. Silks
vary from CO cents to $50 per yard. Drap
d'Alma and drapd'eto aro regaining pop
ularity, and chevrons, nrmurcs and bas
ket weaves aro all among tho newest
importations, as well as heavy nun's
sergo, all in black and colors. olen
goods cost all tho way from 12 cents to
$2. GO per yard. The silk warn Henriettas
aro $1 to $3 per yard, and good cash-
for morning and houso drosses, which
are of such line texture and finish that
they admit of tho tiso of velvet an
trimmings, and thus this goods nlso falls
directly Into topulur favor. His partic
ularly pretty for littlo girls' dresses.
Slippers uro do rigueur for evenings,
und llicy are cut very low on tho toes.
Very few of them havo buckles or ro
settes. Shoes for out doors aro much
higher on tho nnklo nnd with scalloped
tops, and many of them havo tho patent
English laces, and all havo tho low com
mon sense heels, none but actresses
and persons who deslro to attract atten
tion wearing tho high heels. Laced
bIiocs nro much moro comfortablo nnd
neater in nppenrnnco than buttoned
shoes, and a smaller sired shoo can be
worn, which Is u great consideration to
all women. Tho narrow too, however,
Is not entirely nbolishcd, but no Bwear
words nor wry faces show to mankind
what the womnn suffers who wears
them. If nny of my sulTerlng sisters
should have a tiny weo little corn, which
mnkes her life n silent burden, I will tell
her what to do. Take some bread soda,
or sulcrntus, and moisten it, nnd bind it
over the offender for threo or four
nights, and it will din an easy death and
simply fall off. It is tho alkali that kills
them. I havo seen this tried a hundred
times, nnd it nover falls.
I lower gnrnlturo on dresses for ovcnlng
is growing in proportion. Homo of tho
gowns Imvo as mnnv as twenty largo
roses, with buds ami follago scattered
about over tho skirts. A few carnations
aro also seen, but tho chrysanthemums
still remain tho favorite, probably bo
causo they aro so costly.
People in high society In Now York
nro very fond of (lowers, so fond, indeed,
that a raro $1,000 plant wnB stolen from
tho last chrysanthemum show, which re
sulted In the lino plants being cither
chained this year or exhibited under a
glass case. Thcso plants nro kept In tubs
or large otB, nnd somo ono mado away
with tiicm. .
Tho prettiest fnncy of tho season is tho
Littlo Lord Fauntleroy costume which I
present in this letter, ltlsmndeof btack
velvet or velveteen, and Is worn with a
sash of cardinal surah. Tho jacket is a
simple, plain roundabout, with kneo
breeches nnd black stockings. Whito
linen collars can bo worn with it, and
high sleeves, though tho Vandyke colmr
and cuffs and low hucklo shoes aro moro
suitnblo for full dress. Mothers cannot
fail to succeed in making bo simple a
suit. A Scotch cap of velvet or a round
hat can bo worn. Tho costumo is suit
ablo for boys up to about 10 years.
NEOUOEES AND HOUSE BACKS.
meres and wool Henriettas can bo bought
from 45 cents to 00 cents per yard, 44
Duttons havo not been seen for several
months on tho handsomest toilets, hooks
and eyes or somo other occult means
holding them together, but now thcro
nro now styles in buttons, so very hand
somo and urtiBtio that tho heart of
woman has relented. Somo of them cost
(3 apiece, and nro set with garnets. Ono
lovely set of buttons (for thoy como in
sets largo nnd small) has a mother of
pearl foundation, bordered with a ring
of chased gold, with tiny gold and steel
fans set in tho center. I think I may
safoly state that buttons nro "in" again.
The prettiest dress goods of the 6ea
6on is the silk and wool alpaca. It
is to bo had in black, whito nnd
all tho solid colors now in vogue,
nnd white, nalo pink, bluo or otiier
tint, with tiny figures and bouquet
stumped upon It in natural rotors with
exquisite coloring nnd detail. It falls
into most graceful folds and drains in a
manner to delight tho oyo of an ar-

LEItOY. tist. It is silky und lustrous aud durable,
and bids fair to tako tho precedence of
tho much used nun's veiling, which has
tho defect of cutchiug dust so badly.
Dust finds no foothold on alpaca. There
aro eomo leautlful new French flannels
Tho quaint nnd dainty littlo gown for
a young girl needs no description. I
might add, however, that this can bo
worn over a guimpo if desired. It is a
fashion that Is gaining steadily in favor
for young girls.
New fancies in ten gowns aro being
evolved with such praiseworthy rapidity
that it fairly makes one's head swim to
keep up with them. I present two of
tho prettiest that I havo seen. Ono is
made of golden bronzo plush, with fac
ings ami trout or palo Dluo uttoman silk",
with a curtain drapery of widu. Hamburg
netting. This costumo can nlso bo worn
to qulto pretentious home dinners. This
model can bo mado in many materials.
It is truo that tho long angel sleeves
would bo npt to mako n havoc among tho
tea things. Tho model of this gown was
mado for Mrs. Secretary Whitney.
Tho pretty girl near her in the odd, old
fashioned dress is nobody in particular,
and tho only reason for tier presenco is
because the dress wouldn't be pretty with
out her to iill it out. Tills is ono of thoso
costumes which can bo mado up in an
inilnity of materials and combinations,
tho central Idea being the form of the
gown, which is all the rage umong young
Hats are too sweet for earth. Perhaps
that is why they tower heavenward so
persistently. Tlio thrco cornered lint is
trimmed with moiro and two stiff feath
ers. Tho Tosca, which readies far into
tho unknowable Is of velvet, trimmed
with gold braided ribbon and n dead
duck's wing. Tlio other hat represents
tho fashionable maimer of wearing a
voil. Some of tho veils lire Ixirdercd
witii black lace; somo are of cliuntilly.
If nny girl's grandmother has nn old veil
now Is the time to appropriate it, for
just now it in in fashion.
I do not remember of ever having pre
sented the patient renders of thcso let
ters with any dressing wicqucs or neg
ligees, and I hasten to fulfill my duty in
this resjiect. The three elegant nnd
dainty garments here represented can bo
worn us simple morning negligees or thoy
can bo worn with u liundsomo trained
skirt for tea gowns, nnd thoy nro fully
ornamental enough to answer such a
purpose. They can Ihj of surah, cash
mere, flannel, India or China silk and
bo plain or decorated with ribbon and as
much luco us is desired.
