I lishinents are. Involved in bridal
finery. October Is tlie month for
autumn weddings, and tlio ap

Interest In the holy knot. And as May be

Never d!d fashion offer so many coquet
ries for an estate which demands that ev
erything shall be coquettish. Hats high
crowned and Daring in brim are trimmed
in a way both audacious nnd feminine
Hicy and the numerous bhert nnd jaunty
mantles--some of which seem almost to
have stepped out of old W'alteau engrav
ings suggest the portraits of Gainsbor
ough and Mme. Vigcc l.e Jirun. Merely the
way ostrich feathers arc put upon modish
bendgtur is to show the Influence of these
distinguished painters. The plumes, which
arc of the most fluffy and magnificent
quality, are all applied In the old daring
Ways, standing up in wild bunches and
Sprawling over wide brims in a manner to
how that their loveliness Is the main
thing considered-.
Of course. In discussing bridal garments,
the newest anil rarest models should come
first, but It does not follow from this that
all the world is being married in Parisian
Confections. Many a charming altar frock

expensive, mousselinc de sole and even
India mull shaping a number. Certain mus
lin has even been employed in Paris, but
neeordii'j; to authorities tbl-i Is so cut out
and worked up and transformed with the
addition of other fabrics that the original
texture i. scarcely recognizable.
Upon the nil-mull and niousscllne gowns
la lavished a world of I lie llncst needlework,
along with iu;ilnt ami charming manipula
tions of the dress material. In these, the
old clumsily simple puffs, put on with nar
row withered headings, rank lirst, for they
are much favored and used. Put on In
straight rows and sometimes as tin edge at
the hoi tool of a skirt, these are dubbed
by many drcusmuki rs grandmother puffs,
fichu draperies on the bodice going with
In character, the white altar dress Is the
Same as ever, except that fashion now per
mits sleeves to he elbow length. They nro
met by long gloves, which wrinklo over the
arms, and from the opening of which the
hand Is merely slipped for the ring. The
bridal waist Is severely high in the throat,
for the least degree of decolletnge is con
sidered Indceorous. Put a low cut will
often he simulated in many ways, nnd then
filled In with a high lace gamp or yoke of
cme sort. The length of the train seems
to be a matter of Individual taste. Borne
of the round-gored skirls, made with some
thing of the old fullness, barely fall upon
the lloor. Those with robo fronts are often
extremely long, and upon these are lav
ished the quaint trimmings that go with
these stately nnd antiquated styles.
The veil, most charming feature of tha
enllro bridal toi'ette, is carefully consid
ered. Many brides wear the big lace v lis
covering the entire figure, and giving them
the look of Fhrouded statues. Hut tulle
rlls are equally in vogue, and far less
expensive than lace and, somehow, they
seem more suited to very youthfu". brides.
They are attached to the coiffure in what
ever way Is becoming to the weaior, but
generally fall from knots or a half wreath
Of orange blossoms. CJi.Ing to the ultar the

It thrown ha' k.

bridal wear, a chain of orange b'os

sleeves, bust and Imck and lillel la with
a yoke of duehesse lace. Two fi Ills or the
same lace fall below one of tho sic. -, oh,
which are elaborately puffed and trlni'i.el
down the shirring with orange blossoms.
A wide crush belt of satin with pearl
buckle and slides completes the co'tuinn.
In attendance open this rich gown Is
shown ft bridesmaid's dress of jalu line
silk muslin, fashioned wltn a quaint fjirl
Ishncss and decked with frills nnd barn's
of saffron-tinted Valenciennes. The fiailng
hat Is of pahi b'ue felt with saffron fath
ers nnd a large pink rose.
Artificial roses continue to be of the
enhbagrt variety. A number of the huge
and rather coarsely textured ones are
called calico roses, there showing marvel
ous reds nnd ppleruilily decking f hi -red
Velvet hats. As for the hats themselves'
they ail look like stago tranu'nes, for they

are very high In crown, flaring In biin and
theatrically garnished.

In point of color it is like a corner In sumo

Tho toilette of the bride's mother is a
disputed point. According to some author
ities she should wear only gray for bl ok
is unlucky but straight from Paris come
word to refute the prejudice. At a fash
ionable wedding the costume of the bride's
mother was described as "a notice i He c n

Rich velvet mantles are shown by a num
ber of the new trousseaux. The skirts of
some of the long evening coats are shirred
to yokes to match the elaborate shirred
hats. Other velvet wraps are In quaint man

rich lace at the front or perhaps under the
cdffe, they nrp for tho most part un
trlmmed, if tho Jeweled buckles and but
ti n which appear on many may ' bo ex

bride materials, which, after all, however.
only mean something new and as bandsoma
as possible.
Some of the great dressmakers are put
ting forth trousseau textures nnd cuts in
dividual to their house and stamp. Fur In
stance, Instead of the usual fancy traveling
wrap, one place displays a redingote of
coarse Scotch wool, whose only commenda
tion Is some large ball buttons of shining
gilt. But the cut of this rendingote is
dashing, the skirts being put on at tho hips
in the way of those of many of the mascu
line overcoats.
Smart traveling gowns are also shown in
these wools. They are made with long
half-fitting coats und skirts pleated each
side of the apron. The turn-over collars
nnd cuffs arc of plain velvet, but a brilliant
novelty with one such gown was a waist
coat of embroidered kid in a-vivid scarlet.
To go with evening gowns are some cir
cular capes of white or coral pink cloth
made very plainly, depending, In fact, al
most entirely upon the cut. Other evening
wraps are in sacque form, some lung, some
short, nnd the majority display decorations
which may be described rather as dainty
than elaborate.
In fact, a scrupulous nicety prevails in all
departments of dress, the doing away of
sleeve falls for street wear having come
from their tendency to untidiness. The
merest ornament, too, becomes by the man
ner in which it is disposed something that
st ems precious, livening slipper bows are
feats of prcttiness, und those for bridal
wear display elaborate pearl and crystal
bondings. . L'pon gauzy dinner and dance

With bridal lingerie, these charming and
sentimental forms are carried out In ex

or French lawn compose the choicest of the
bridal sets, which show, besides the gar
land embroideries, monograms in old
French lettering.
Dress has Indeed reached a stntely point;
and it looks as if it were creeping toward
further ceremony. MARY DEAN.
A Vital Question
"I understand," said Colonel Kalntuek,
"that Jedge Parker cultivates a good hit
of rye."
"Yes," said the man who was soliciting
the colonel's interest, "he does."
"Also some corn."
"That's all very well," responded the blue
grass leader, "but tell me this. Does the
jedge raise any mint?" Philadelphia Inquirer.
