EC RETS LADY DUFF-GORDON, the famous "Lucile" of y London, and foremost creator of fashion in the world, writes each week the fashion article for this newspaper, present ing all that is newest and best in styles for well-dressed women. Lady Duff-Gordon's new Paris establishment brings her into close touch with that centre of fashion. Lady Duff-Gordon's American establishment is at.Nos. 37 and 39 West Fifty-seventh street, New York City. By Lady DUFF-GORDON ("Liiclle") I AM Indeed glad that at last a change baa come over bridal - fashions, that 'the modern eplrit has permeated even that last stronghold of conventionalized fash Ion. For generations the bride's costume was never anything but white satin and point lace. In fact, this costume had become so thor oughly a habit that no bride seemed to think that sho was legally mar fled unless she woro it . But to-day the picturesque fash Ions of the world have touched the bride, too, and I am showing you, this week, a costume that I think has all the charming charactertis tics of the present era. . And another thing, the century-old poBOheld by the bride's attendants is also changing. Tho maid of hon or at a most chic wedding In Lon don, where both the bride and groom belonged to tho highest ranks of the nobility, carried a long shepherdess A TIGHT FIT. ,!'HH excursion train for Blackpool was very full and very late. Pas Angers were growing exasperated. " Presently, however, u shrill whistle .was blown, and it Boomed really as 1 the 'train was about to move, when 'iuji(lenly a middle-aged couple camo hurrying: down the platform and tried fS fight their way into one of the al ready overcrowded compartments of ffin Jraln. "Only room for one!" shouted tho OcqtTpants. ,s if with one voice. ..aYI rjKht," replied the husband of the invading couple, at he thrust his A wife Into the carriage. Then, In a confidential whisper: "Sir," he asked one tof the passengers, "might I i Jtouble you to keep an eye on this .VjRdyT She Is subject to violent .'spasms and fits." .The man gave no answer. For a moment he hesitated. Then, with a scared expression pn" his face, he leaped out on to the platform Just at the train was moving. And the nutbatid got Ini The Modern Bride in Her Sumptuous Robe of White Mat alasee and Pearl Tulle Attended by Her Shepherdess Maid of Honor Garbed in Robe of Quaint Simplicity. crook and held the bride's graceful "fish tall" train In her left hand. The gown I am showing you this week Is elaborate In design and treatment Formerly, elaboration was not for the bride; sho was sup posed to walk her flowery way to the altar garbed as simply as a schoolgirl, hor whlto satin made as plainly, as i -vrnvent uniform, high necked, long-sleoved bpdlco and Jaco Tell arranged -under orange blos soms. This gown Is created In oxqulsite white Matalasso, combined with white tulle embroldorod with seed pearls. It is the design rather than the fabric that is daring for a brido. There Is an underskirt of soft white crepe, edged at the. bottom with white silk fringe. This skirt Is only glimpsed in the front where the robe la slit. This robe, as you can see in tho picture, has tho front cut up several InchoB. Tho train is very long and narrow. There Is, of course, some slight drapery, and equally, of course, this drapery Is In the back. The bodice, cut low, Is entirely of the pearl tulle. The sleeves are a modification of tho old angel sleevo and are very graceful, There Is a high girdle of the Matalasso, thus making one color lino from shoulder to slipper. From under this girdle hangs a wide panol pf the pearl tulle, which Is exceedingly decorative and ef fective. And then tho veil. In New York t realize that tho lace yell, draped cap fashion updor orange blossoms, still holds, but. in England and on tho Continont, tho veil of tulle, vol uminous and graceful, Is do rigour. There must always bo a short voll over tho bride's face as she, walks to tho altar; this is thrown back as sho walks back with her husband. Your brldOB of Southern birth and brooding, I bollqvo, still cling to this faco veil. It Is a charming 'custom, f think. But of what real usq is a lace yell afterwards? It is kept, in many In stances, for futuro brides; grand daughters in New York frequently wear veils worn by their grand mothers. There can bo Just as much sentiment about a tulle voll as about an ornato lace ono, and there 1b much more art in the former, to say nothing of tho better taste. And now to toll you of the brides maid, her quaint costume and her change of pobo. To do a quaint action ono must wear quaint clothes. Is not this costumo shown horo the epitome of qualntness? It is Just a simple lit tle robo of pale pink chiffon, worn over a petticoat of whlto silk mull and valenccnnes laco. The scal loped edges are bound with pale blue, and the flowers In each scal lop are developed In pale bluo and ' pink. There are clusters of tucks to break tho sovorlty of tho skirt. The bodies is as quaintly slmplo as the skirt. Dy the way, there is a difference between simple and quaint Somo very elaborate gowns can have tho quality of qualntness. In this caso, however, quatntnoss and simplicity go hand in hand. There is no embroldory, no decora tion of any kind on the bodice; Just the scalloped bertha of tho chiffon edged with the blue, to match the skirt. I particularly llko the Ellzabothan sleeves, with their shoulder puff and long "cuffs." The dainty finish around tho hand is ono of the littlo touches that only an artist could have developed. Tho Juliet cap of chiffon and laco is piquant and becoming. It baa tiny bluo and pink rosebuds on tho left side, to match those on tho "Watteau wand. Tho soft, crushed girdle Is of bluo and pink satin. ByMme.LimCavaliebi The Most fmovs Living Beauty No. 227 The New Care of the Teeth. THE tooth aro tho workers whoso beauty s in dally peril.

Thb tooth In Us bard portion is made up of comont, Ivory and onamol. Tho onamol forms tho su porflclal layer and gives tho tooth brilliancy. It is mora or loss frag ile, according to tho Individual. The acids attack tho enamel; henco It follows that some dontlfrlcoa ore quito dangerous and that somo fruits and acid drinks attack tho tooth. Persons addicted to drink ing cider always have wretched tooth. The dally trdatmont of tho tooth consists of washing and brushing. The tooth brush Is a very important Instrument, which should bo steril ized both before and after using. As soon as tho bristles woar or be gin to drop out It Is time for a new brush. You roally need a now brush onco a month. In selecting your tooth brush remember that It Is not simply to rub or polish tho enamel or remove tho food from betweon tho teeth, but It is also intonded to stimulate tho gums. Thereforo, It should not be too stiff. In addition to tho brushing of tho tooth ovory morning, they should bo brushed after oach meal, so as to remove all particles of food from between the teoth. In this way all fermentations and deposits which are tho Constant causo of decay aro avoided. ' .

Do not eat food that is either too hot or too cold. Ices are as harmful to the teeth as very hot brows. Do not for In Btanco, after drinking very hot soup, swallow ice water. There are all kinds of preparations for tho teeth, but, unfortunately, many of these contain harmful ele ments. Be sure as to what Is In any dentifrice before using it, and see to it that It is adapted to your saliva. You can tell easily whether your saliva is acid, alkallno or neutral, by putting your tongue on a piece of turnsole (thymus) paper, or bluo litmus paper, You know that acids turn this bluo paper reddish. There fore, If this paper turns red when put to your tongue, your saliva is acid and you should correct this by an alkaline tooth wash. If, on the contrary, your saliva turns this paper blue after It has been turned red br add treatment, your saliva Is toq alkallno and an acid dentifrice should be used. This is, however, Terr rare, and the entire organism EAUTY- should rccolvo spoclal troatmont when such a condition Is found. Qa to a good, rollablo doctor.
