"So far ns my personal observation goes these
springs are remarkably efflcatlous In the cure
of rheumatism (particularly sciatica) norvous

Dut I started out to talk silks, nnd I
am going to do It. It Is certainly not
over twelvo years ago that It was not
posslhh) to find American silks In moro
than ono weave, nnd thnt was tho plain
silk in colors or black. It is truo thnt
thoy wero practically itulcstructlblo nnd
nover acquit ed that very unpleasant
glosa that so quickly appears upon even
tho best quality of French goods nnd
makes n now gown look shiny anil even
greasy. This comes from tho fact that
French silks nto weighted with glucose,
which has tho proporty of taking on a
waxy polish with very llttlo wear. Eng
lish silks nnd American silks nro pure,
and no matter how long they nro worn
thoy nover becomo shiny. Thnt fact
known, no lady ought to purchaso n
i-rcncu biiis ir niio can get nn American
ono, for, though tho English is good,
patriotic bcntlmcnt ought to count for
something; besides, tho American goods
In my wanderings after tho "nowest"
I went into nn enormous warehouse nnd
found, among thoso manufactured by
Americans, thousands of rolls of silks,
and I verily bellovo no two nliko, and 1
wish to show that, no matter what n
lady's fancy may be, alio can get any
thing sho wants in silk tnndo in this
country. It is, theroforo, her duty to
buy them, and no husband has n moral
light to prevent his wifo from being
patriotic nnd doing her duty any moro
than bIio has to dlctnto whom ho shall
Among theso beautiful goods nro all
tho exquisite pongees and India silks
with delicate ground in all shades, nnd
flowers and foliage in tho most perfect

carried through nino different ground
colors. There nro also brocades in which
tho ground is dark and tho figures Bmall

goods, crapo finish in mat whito,
cream, palo pink and bluo with tiny
figures and flowers in silk woven
over tho surface This latter drapes
as soft as crapo and b lovely for
vests nnd drapery. Thero is also a full
lino of watered silk and moire, of satin
stripo silk, and others with dainty llttlo
woven figures, others with stripes, ono
of rich satin and tho other of in
tricato brocadod patterns, plain falllo
francalso in ovcry concclvablo color,
and all of superb appearance; reps and

plain surahs and a sort of silk between

Tho arinuro wcavo is a favorite this
season and is mado tho foundation for
many beautiful combinations, ono being
a gray armuro with narrow stripes of
moiro in gray, with another set of stripes
of graded width in whito satin with black
satin stripes between them. Another is
of cream armuro with stripes of four
sliadcs of gruy satin and a stripo mado

Black silk grenadines, brocaded nnd

I noticed also a few pieces of tho mag
nificent old fashioned, but over now,
chorry silk lu very dollcntely tinted
ground work, with largo flowers iu soft
natural colors woven in. Tills is dono
by having tho pattern printed on the
warp of tho silk as it is stretched in tho
loom, nnd tho woof Is woven nfterwnrd
iu, which gives tho pattcru that soft nn4
Indistinct outllno and vnguoncss which
nro its charm. It is only recently that
this has been nehtoved in America, tho
secret of Its pocullnr manufacture hav
ing been Jealously guarded iu Franco. I
guess wo can do things ns well as thoy.
Besides theso varieties, and many moro
that 1 cannot remember, nro somo nr
tistio pongees nnd India silks for house
hold dccoratlvo purposes. Theso nro
usually in very dellcato tints, but I no
ticed ono pattern of conventionalized
flowers in greens shading into yellow.
Thero mo also many varieties of wash
surnh, which Is bound to becomo a fa
vorlto material. Tho Btripes nro of ovcry
perfectly fast color and nono others, and
all in pleasing shades nnd combinations.
Somo nro in lino and qutto largo checks
also. They nro for young ladies for tennis
nnd general summer ovcry day wear and
for undergarments, both for ladles
nnd children, nnd also for gentlemen's
summer outing blouses, nnd blouses for
boya for very warm weather. Tho goods
is ono yard wide, and costs about a dollar
a yard. Thoy will bo liko nil tho Cheny

but tho Cheny silks hero, tho Burton
English and Bonnet French are tho only
ones worth buying for thoso who want
something worth having.
I havo chos.cn from many models somo
very stylish gowns mado of silks and
velvets only, ns representing tho manner
of making them up, nnd tho styles aro nil
models of quiet elegance
Thero is a now material which Is likely
to supplant all tho velveteens and tako
tho placo of Lyons silk velvet, which it
resembles very closely, being of very
closo wouvo and short pile It comes
twonty-four inches wido in nil tho most
fashionable colors, and is called volon
Una, Its luster and richness nro unsur
passable, and tho colors run from puro
mat whito up through cream, rcsada,
tabao, rncino and all tho reds to seal
brown and a mngnlflccnt black. Tlio
serpent, nllo, tullo nnd dark bluo and
plum shades nro beautiful. Tlio cost is
from 75 cents to $1 per yard.
It is usod for skirts to dresses, for bod
Ices, panels, trimmings, full walking
costumes nnd children's clothes. Tho
dark green, bluo nnd black mako suits
which boys cannot wear out. and tho
goods mako very rich and handsomo nnd
dressy robes for llttlo girls, as well ns
cloaks for babies, and Is equally hand
somo for grandma.

If I had my way nobody should wear
