1'AI.I. COSTUMIM 1800 AND 1889.
Ill reading tho hooks over wc llnd in
the resume of fashions for the month
that "all tlin brightest of tho primary
colors nro worn," mid ono silk street
gown of astonishing proportions is of
Solfcriuo (n bright crimson) silk with
purple flounces in festoons, "n very nt
trnctlve combination." tho book Bays.
Another gown, that certainly must Imvo
required forty ynrds of silk in tho
making, is of "royal purplo silk with
inlet, fan liko gores of emerald silk,
headed by rosettes of green nnd purplo."
It is distended by nn enormous hoop.
"A graceful nnd nttructlvo full wrap,"
which is reproduced here, is Hindu of
n.uro liltiOHlik trimmed with black vel
vet, In Grecian pattern, nnd worn over
a black silk dress, with n blue bonnet to
"correspond" with tho clonk, with "ar
tificial (lowers In tho cup." Tho pretty
fall milt of today opposite this ono,
which looks like the groat bell of Mos
cow, Is of soft gray cashmere, with
braiding of silver and a darker idindo of
gray, a vest of white surah and a jacket
of flno striped chovlot, gray nnd fawn.
A glanco at tho difference In tho fash
ion of riding habits hero presented also
gives a few cause) of thankfulness. To
day tho habit Is trim, snug, with no su
perfluous length or breadth of skirt to
tanglu or flap nbout a horso'a legs, nor
petticoat or hoops to catch on the saddle
horn and drag a woman to death, as
often happened in those days. Indeed
how they ever managed to ride in thoso
ungainly clothes I don't see.
And, besides, 1 think our stylo of
writing fashion letters is better than
theirs was, and otTcr, that every ono
may judge, a paragraph descriptive of
that surprising riding habit:
"Gray cell like hat, tho brim trimmed
with gray velvet and trimmed with
tuftH of. curled ostrich fcathors of two
shades, ono light and one dark. Veil of
green gauze. Dress of green ladles'
cloth, embroidered with black edging.
High neck waist, opened at the top nnd
showing a small frill: short straight
collar: small basque, well adjusted.
Long sleeves, with clbows'unil half flat
with rounded corners at the end. Tho
waist, tho sleeves and tho pockets of tho
skirt ornamented with a Hungarian liko
drawing in edging. On tho left sido it
(son tho right In tho picturo n hook
descends, composed of crochet like
ornaments In gimp and edging, which
helps raising the skirt when tho rider is
not on horseback."
Tho Indy of tho trailing robo wears her
hair in n Ioomi pulled arrangement, and
has gauntlet gloves and goodness knows
how many petticoats, whllo now tho
newest styles are for a lady to havo ev
erything snug and trim. Tho rider of
today wears hor hair braided and fast
ened tightly, and n Derby or high hat is
held by an clastlo passing under tho
hair. No jewelry, no whlto Bhlrt fronts,
no fancy neckties nro to bo seen. A neat,
plain linen collar and cuffs, dark gloves,
rather loose, aud a whip aro her adorn
ments. Alt her underwear Is snug and
no corsets aro worn. Tho boots aro or
dinary walking style, and tho trousers
nro strapped down. Tho skirt has tho
least possible fullness, and has dart
seams, which are taken in whllo tho
young lady is seated on her saddle. Tho
opening is closed by means of a tly, with
flat buttons under

1 really hnto to confess It, but I know
that about a year ngo 1 condemned tho
Bcnntiiicss of tho present stylo of riding
dresses and praised tho grace of the long,
(lowing robo. It Is novor too lato to
mend, nnd, besides, I hadn't tho contrast
so vividly before 1110, so now I tako It all
back nnd declare unequivocally la favor
of tho safer, neater style of today,
