The experience of n professional lcauty,
Mrs. I.auutry, In regard to black gowns Ih
worth recording. Thu first season that the
Jersey Lily spent lu London found her the
posessorof one evening gown, and that a
very simple black. Immediately after her
picture appeared she becmnu thu rage, mid
duchesses themselves did not hesitate to
stand on chairs to get a glimpse of Iter as
she passed. Kverywlieru she wore the
black gown. Onu night it was turned lu
so that her beautiful throat showed; an
other night It was drawn up close to her
neck and ti bunch or whltu lilies against it
brought out Its blackness mid her fairness.
It was mended, It was pressed, but ut re
ceptlou or ball all that season thu Is-autlf ul
woman wore the black gown, hater on,
when evening dressea were very ordinary
things to her, she said most positively:
"Never tell mu that it woman emi't dress
well who has u stuglu frock. I know that
hIiu cannot only look well, but always be
distinguished; and 1 know it through the
best teacher of all experience." And so
It Is that tlio black evening gown Is coin
mended not only to the woman who has a
greatdeal of money, but to her who, though
hu may bu bent on pleasure, yet has a
frugal mind. Philadelphia Times.
