The Journal deemed it necessary to issue

A Br.NSIUI.i; IIATIIINO HU1T.
In ninny, ovon the most bathing nnd
seaside places, the bathing costumes
nro anything but modest, nnd young
girls nnd matrons loll nbout the sands
in n innnnor tlio revcrso of delicate,
nnd many bather dress for bnlh in
their own rooms nnd then throw n
long clonk over the ficanty costume nnd
run down to tlio bench. In tho Idcnl
place, however, you will sco mothers nnd
children going hand in iinnd down to tho
bath houses, nnd from tlicnco into tho
invigorating sen, nnd nil tho while habit
ed as nny man would like toseohiswifo,
or father his dnughter.
In tlio pretty Illustration which shows
n mother nnd child going down to tho
bench, I do' uot wish to linvo nny ono
supposo thnt the mother's bathing cos
tunio is locked up in her little I mud bag.
It is only the Nowport nnd Long Urnuch
belles who can curry their bathing dresses
in their bonbon boxes nmoug their cara
mels. Wc will suppose, therefore that
she keeps hers nt tho bath house.
Costumes for tlio seaside for nil occa
sions should bo of such goods ns will
neither shrink, spot or grow llmpsy,
nnd, therefore, for ordinary day wear
ergo, black, bluo or maroon is letter
than anything else
Soft silks nnd Inco dresses for evening
are nice, nnd so Is turn's veiling. Cash
meres nro npt to feel sticky. Surah for
trimming on dresses Is good to use, for
its principal claim is its softness and
flexibility. All who go to the Bcasido
should tako plenty of wraps, nnd none
should go without Annuel undcrvests,
as there is always n chill in tho atmos
phere. Feathers, except stiff ones, nro
ruined by tho dampness. Thick shoes
nro safer than thin ones.
Tho costume represented in this cut is
of dark blue serge, with a front and vest
of cream surah, witli a band of Persian
embroidery up tlio center, nnd blue Btraw
hat with cream lace and daisies. Tho
child's dress is of two shades of bluo
serge, trimmed with whito braid and
whito flannel vest nnd collar.
Tlio other day I happened in tho lead
ing jewelry house to look for dog collars,
nnd among tho mass of silver collars,
leather bands and chased nnd decorated
neckwear for rich folks' bowwows I
found eoveral silver chains two and
threo yards long, and I ualuraliy asked
if thoso woro to lead tho dogs with. Tlio
clerk said no, that thoy were for young
ladies to wear in their hair, and ho
showed several different kinds, sotuo in
gold, somo copper and bronze, and be
sides thoso woro several Greek. fillets of
gold and silver. Thoso I was told are
sold to young ladles who have discovered
that this stylo of dressing tho hair is be
coming to them. Tho fillets malic of tho
baser metals nro for day use and tho
more precious ones for ovening.
I am glad that women liavo como to a
realizing sonso that each should adopt a
stylo of hairdrosslng for herself that ex
actly becomes her stylo. Just now much
latitudo is allowed, but somo light rings
or curls of hair lying over the brow

ins tho (rout hair there u no rule
that will produce tho samo results
for two womon; but it is safe to say that
curls or frizzes should not bo too com
pact, and they should bo brought down
as far around tho ears as possible. Many
women wear a compact mass of frizzes
straight acrosa tho forehead, having tho
hair drawn' tightly back from tho torn
pies, leaving tlio car to stand out bare
and ugly when it should bo partially
