waist which determines tho beauty of a
drew. Tho skirts nro usually of eomo
thin material which floats out gracefully
as tho pretty dancer whirls around In
tlmo to tho cadences of tho iiuihIo, and
as Lent is over it is now permissible lor
nil tho girls who lovo dancing to dnnco
again. It has been whispered that thcro
Imvo been many littlo dances on tho My
during Lent, but then folks will talk
often without reason.
Ono thing is uoticcablo now about nil
tho dancing dresses, and that is tho slim
uess of tho skirts. Thcro is no bustlo nor
any extra fullness in tho back except
that which comes from nn underskirt
with starched ruflles up tho bnclc breadth.
Tho skirts for all young ladles nnd young
matrons nro just long enough to touch
tho floor in tho back, but somo of tho
moroclderly ladles who still And pleasure
in dancing wear very costly dresses of
vol vet, brocadonnd silk with long trnins,
to tho great discomfort of ovcrybody
else. I think a trained dress Is nioro out
of place In a ball room than any other
placo, nnd yet thero will always bo threo
or four in every ball just enough to
keep a pilo of tinfoitunnto men lying
around in spots on tho floor. And when
tho wearer wishes to dunce- she 6loops
down with n sort of a slduwise and back
ward motion, liko a dog going after a
flea, and takes hold of her train and lifts
it up in her arm, n proceeding that al

weight over her urm. Tho dignity and

she In ridiculous.
Trained dresses ought to bo strict!)

Thero they nro in placo.
It will now bo but n short tlmo until
tho watering plnco balls and hops will
begin, and I wish to tell all my dancing
friends what to wear and how to make
it. Tho flguro No. 1 is a very taking lit
tlo dress for a young lady, of palo pink
silk tibsuc, tho pink so palo that it is al
most flesh color. Tho bottom of tho
skirt has two ruflles four incites deep,
tho top one having thrco tucks abovo it.
Theso ruflles aro worked in pink floss
silk and with white silk with hero and
thcro a silver thread. Tho rest of tho
skirt is quito plain nud is simply gath
ered at tho waist, very full in tho back.
Tho waist can bo understood at a glance.
Tho ribbons aro mutwhito satin. Tho
embroidery across tho top is of tho samo
pattern as that around tho skirt. Such a
dress, if mado by tho nlmhlo fingers of
tho wearer, would cost not moro than
$12. If bought in ono of our largo es
tablishments it would cost from $80 to
No. 2 Is tho bodlco of a dress In cream
whitomull. Tho skirt has a deep hem,
abovo which is a scries of ten narrow
tucks. A looso tunic of mull is caught
up on each Bldo with a spray of tea roses
nud foliage. Around tho waist is u very
novel arrungumont of appliquo of pearl
embroidery on cscurial lace, with somo
pretty pendants also in pearl. Tho front
is filled across with a full pleating of
tulle. Tho wholo cost of this exceeding
ly handsome dress, including tho flow
ers, would not bo over $10, if mado at
home. Perhaps not so muck, certainly
not, if tho leading could also bo dono nt

HANDSOME BALL COSTUMES.
Another very pretty dancing dress for
a young lady is shown in No, 8. It is of
silver gray silk warp Henrietta, with a
gauzo brocaded ribbon cash of palo pink.
Tho top of the waist has a bertha of
pink tullo and horizontal Etrlpes of tho
brocaded ribbon. Tho skirt is plain,
with a very slightly draped tunic, held
by flots of pink ribbon. Tho gloves are
palo pink, embroidered in silver. The
cost of this gown would bo about $20,
tnado at homo, but it would outlast four
of any of the others. No. 4 is a drew

to a big houso and pay n hundred dollars

Ono of tho neatest and prettiest gowns
of tho season is mado of gray nnd whito
chocked silk in threo shades of gray.
Down each sido of tho front is a fold of
cherry velvet, and a narrow fold also
trims tho hldo of tho vest front, which is
of cream whito in Jersey cloth, with n
collar of tho same. Tills is n very lady
liko dress, and Is ono of tho kind that
never goes out of fashion.
Bnll slippers can bo of satin, black or
whito, or to match tho color of tho dress.

ers beaded ornaments, and others ngain

slipper. Dancing shoes havo quito low
heels, and nro adapted to tho violent ex

Hosiery for dancing is of tho most
elaborate kind, nud b of tho finest qual

up tho back breadth. Theso aro for tho
under one. When tho dress is mado of
thin material, tho skirt which is to bo
worn next it should bo or thin muslin,
sheer and not too lino. This gives a
transparent effect that is very desirable,
for n thick skirt nex t to tho dress is too
abrupt a change. Somo young ladles
havo a skirt mado of thin glaco silk to
wcu:' under such dresses, but that makes
it necessary to Imvo ono for overy gown.
A very novel fancy In now spring
gowns, which also could bo adapted to
ball dresses for those who liko darker
colors, is to havo fine black grcnadino
mndo up over changeable- glaco silk.
Tho changeable effects como in brown
and gold, purplo und gold, bltio und pink,
red and yellow nnd other very marked
contrasts. The colors thus nro very brill
iant, nud no lady would wear them, un
less toned down by tho outer film of
grenadine. Tills is cut exactly with tho
silk so that it lays flat over it, and tho
bright colore show faintly through tho
meshes, and thus it becomes very beauti
ful, the folds breaking out into rich
lights and shadows with every move
ment. This fashion has really not reached
America yet, except in ono or two im
portant gowns, but beforo long will bo.
If anybody has an old fashioned glaco
silk laid away Binco her great-grandmother's
time, now is her opportunity.
Tho Priestly grenadine comes in iinglo
mesh and is tho suitablo kind, aud costs
about seventy cents a yard. I haven't
got a grandmother to go to for ono. I
wish I had. Olive Harper.
