It is not often that Postmaster Gere conies to

crowded city saw horse cars, cable cars,
electric motors, buildings seven, oight and ten

I givo n picture of nm of Uioho cob
tunics in black velvet, with n plain skirt
very slightly draped in front, with n
baud of feather trimming around tho
bottom, Up tho right Hido Ih u panel of
brocade In jwnrl gray, with Wnck nnd
cardinal ruined pattern. Throe jet but
tons nud u jet buckle trim the wulst.
Thu vent front i In cream colored Jnp
nnuso crope, nnd mound the neck is n
band of thu feather trimmings. Tho
jnunty velvet hut.wlth u ruby bucklonnd
cardinal fctither, adds just the touch of
youthful brightness necessary Perhaps
tho dress would bo more elegnnt nil in
velvet, without admixture of nny otlior
tunterlal or color. Dark blue, green,
brown or prune vchitlun would innko up
n very rich and lmndsoino gown nftcr
this model, mul it would only rcqulro at
tho most ten yards of this goods to nmko
it. Thu feather trimming is nliout $1.00
per yard, nnd it would need four yards
of that. Velvet costs anything you hro
willing to pay for it, according to qual
ity. The velutinn it $1 per ynrd, nnd is
mora used than silk velvets for cos
tumes. Oriental embroidering is getting quito
a rngu just now. Woolen and velvet
liousa nnd street dresses luivo braiding
mingled with uppllquu embroidery. Mrs.
Graver Cleveland wears such u costume
made of black camels' hair with a band
around tho bottom dono in scarlet nnd
gold. A pointed girdle gives grneo nnd
slenderness to tho waist, nnd there is n
simulated Spanish jacket in tho eamo
kind of braiding which entirely covors
tho back. Tho sleeves nro trimmed en
It is curious that no one Iiiib noticed
how largo Mrs. Clovoland Ib. She Is taller
than thu most of women nnd is far
stouter than sho looks, owing to the per
fect symmetry of her figure, which hor
dressmaker takes piiilo in outlining nnd
accentuating by her arts. Whatever
gown Mrs. Clovelaud has. on, there Is tho
snmo faultless fit and apparent simplicity
in trimming. It is only when tho flguro
Is poor or uuduvolojied that n dress re
quires a profusion of trimming.
In tho threo toilets for young ladles
nro shown somo of the latest styles for
waists. Ono lias n deep pointed peasant
waist in black velvet over a dress of
Havana brown, which Is n favorite color
this season. Velvet panels nro placed at
the sides. Tho Bhnulders nud top of tho
front breadth nro shirred. The tniddlo
dress has tho front of Jnpancso crope In
pale blue, nnd the rest is of chnlllea in
pule blue nud prune Mowers, with prune
velvet girdle, jacket cuffs and collar.
Tho third costumo Is of gray and green
striped surah, with four narrow tucks
around tho bottom. This model Is ex
ceedingly pretty for an ordinary homo
uresa ror a young lady.

A COMPACT PLAN.
A Home nf Hinnll Arrn Wlilrh U'llt lie of
I II. (tlbson's Ixwk, "Fifty Convenient
Houses" (Tliomaii Y. Crowoll & Co., New
York), contains many things of seclal Inter
est to Intending houso builders. Hero U a
doscriptlou with floor plans of a vory com
pact, convenient houso. Tho body of tho
structure U to bo DOxIMJV foot. Thcro are
eight avallnblo rooms besUIoi tho bathroom
nud tlio nttlo.
On tho first floor, as wo enter, there Is a ro
cepllon or sitting hall, which is so common
in tlio more modern arrangements, of dwell
ings. This reception hall nmy lw wpnrntod
from tlio passngo by curtains or Krtloros or
sliding doors, In which oveut tho ojxinlng
irom tlio room Into the wmsngo would havo
to 1m a little narrower tlmn that t-liown In
Tills room would presont nn attractive fea
ture, The windows In this pnrt of tho room
could lio placed nlxiut four fiot from tho
floor, In u lilch event Ixiok shelves could lw
nrranged below them. Tho window in front
goes to within seventeen Inches of the floor.
Under tho stairway, and leading from this
room, may lie placed a very liberal closet, in
which thcro should lie n small window.
Leading from the juiKsago Is tlio stairway
ond two closets. Tho little iMixsago hi which
ono closet Is placed Is separated from tlio hall
by a door. There Is another door owning
from this passage Into tho kitchen. Thus
there aro two doon, between tho kitchen nud
tho front part of tbo housa This nrrango
ment has in mind the Isolation nf tho kitchen
from the other rts.ms in a way to prevent
the passage of thu usual kitchen odors.
The stairways In this houso nro of tho class
known rts combination stuirwnys; while tlioy
aro convenient and easy of construction,
thero is a certain amount of complication in
their arrangement which makes them tllfll
cult of description mi as to bo understood by
thoMi not accustomed to examining floor
plans. There is tho stairway from tho front
hall to the floor ahove, and one from tlio
kitchen to the landing of tho fiont stairway.
Tho landing of the front stairway ond that
from the Kitchen stairway is In common
thut Is, It U the tamo.
Kor the purKso of making this under
stood, It may bo woll to say that ono may go
up tho stairway from tho front hall to tho
landing, somo eight steps, and from thonco
down Into tho kitchen, or ho can turn right
face and go to tho landing on tho second
floor. This part of tho stairs is used coming
up from tho kitchen as woll as from tlio
front hall. Howover, tho kitchen stairway
is separated from tho landing by u door.
Thero is another door at tho foot of this
In coming down stairs, ono may turn to the
right, open a door and go down Into tho
kitchen; or, ho may turn to tho left and go
down tho front stairway into tho hall. Dy
Jhis plan everything Is concentrated, and
without tho serious drawbacks which extra
cost or a smaller number of rooms would
Imply to those who havo only n little over
$2,000 to siend for n houso without appur
tenances. Tho head room for tho stairway
coming up from the kitchen U secured under
tho bath tub In tho bathroom Immediately
Tho cellar stairway Is clearly Indicated as
going down parallel to tho kitchen stairs and
under the front stairs The cellar In this
houso should lo under tho kitchen, stairways
and tho reception ball that is, it would oc
cupy all of one sldo of tho house.
The parlor Is 14xl7) feet in size. It is
connected with a hall by wido sliding doors,
so that about ouo-half of this side of tho room
may lo open. Tho grata opposite tlio sliding
doors in tho parlor would premmt a vory
beautiful vlow from tho ball and stairway.
Our dlnhig room has an liideeiidcnt con
nection with the front hall, so that we do not
havo to go through tho parlor or tho sitting
room to reach it.
Tho doers leading from tho pus-sugo Into
the diulng room and kitchen should bu hung
on doublo swinging hinges.
Tho windows In this kltchou should he
placed about threo feet from the floor, so
thut tables may bo placed under them.
There U n placo for n gns stovo between tho
two windows, or oven under them If desirable.
Tlio porch nt tho rear of tho kitchen may be
Inclosed with iattlco work, or, what is bol
ter, coarse louvered slats, like thasu of a
Tlio door which loads from tho porch Into
tho pantry Is a small ono, placed nbovo tho
Ice chest, and Is for tho use of tho iceman.
Tho arrangement of rooms up stairs will bo
readily understood. Leading out of tho hall
ts n store closet for bedding, etc. It is located
fo as to Ik) accessible from all rooms. From
tho front end of tho hall a door leads Into the
fair paswigo to the nttla
