Let me describe one of the simplest
gowns I saw, worn by a bud of last
season. It was of pale blue chifftkn.
The skirt wus tight to the knees,
whence fell a perfectly voluminous ac
eordeon pleated llounce en train.
About the bottom of this were many
ruchings of chiffon, producing an al
most over-full-effect, particularly when
its slender young wearer tried to carry
it. At the top of the flounce were two
lows of twisted ribbon wide pale blue
Liberty. This ribbon was braided In
and out with twisted chiffon, and was
wonderfully pretty. One row was
wfiere the llounce joined the skirt
proper, .and the other was upon the
skirt itself. They were about three
inches apart. The bodice had a shirred
sleeve about half-way between the el
bow and shoulder. This was merely a
scrap about two inches wide, showing
the arm above as well as below. At
the shoulder a wide ruching of the
chiffon finished the arm-hole, and a
large bunch of delicate, pinkish yellow
roses fastened upon the left front of
the bodice fell across the left shoulder,
half over the ruching. The front and
back of the bodice were accordeon
pleated to match the llounce of the
skirt, and both were cut quite low
lower, I think, that the youthful
gowns of last year. A bit of exquisite
filet lace (which, by the bye, has be
come most popular) peeped from the
top of the bodice and fell in effective
tabs almost to the waist line. The blt
was of crushed satin ribbon, and end
ed in two leng sashes, meeting at the
top in a fine enamel buckle about the
size of an ordinary brooch.
All the gowns were of the richest
materials. There were no organdies or
modest little silks In evidence. They
liave given piace entirely to the costly
silk crepes. most delicately woven
chiffons and tulles, fine thin satins,
which fall oo gracefully, and the ex
pensive laco -obts of Irish crochet and
Cluny. Another noticeable innova
tion is the tendency to wear flowers as
A white silk net of conventional pat
tern had a huge cluster of brilliant
field popples trailing over the entire
front of the bodice from the left shoul
der. This costume was banded all
over with heavy white satin ribbons
about half an inch apart. The skirt
had a Spanish flounce, also ribbon
banded and side pleated. The bodice
was low, and the sleeves of ribbon
reached the elbow, finishing in a point
ed ruTle of net, A coral necklace to
matin the color of the popples was
worn about the throat of this young
matron, who was most attractive. This
necklace was a work of art. In front
there were three rows of the coral,
pointed in shape, with a tiny drop of
a pearl pendant from each bit of coral.
These odd. Oriental necklaces are
quite the rage. They are far more be
coming than the usual one-strand
necklace, and are more youthful than
the collars of pearls.
An Irish point gown worn by a ma
tron who is still young was ravishing.
It was elaborately garnished, bodice
and sieves if one may call these mere
suggestions of arm coverings sleeves
with filet lace, appliqued in the most
remarkable way. The skirt a slinging
affair, very, very long had a gradu
ated band of the filet lace set on in
various sized squares, and not far from
the bottom. The sash worn with this
was of white satin outlined in delicate
pink rosebuds and trailing stems.
A handsome gown of Irish crochet
was also worn by one of the younger
girls, a debutante of this season. A
renaissance, the pattern worked out
tiny silver spangles had a back of
black Chantilly let In most curiously.
It looked as If woven with the white,
so exquisitely was It fitted. It was
wide through the centre of the back,
and tapered from there to about half
way down the long train, where It
gradually widened again to the end.
The black lace was not spangled. This
gown was rather high In the neck, and
had elbow sleeves very close-fitting.
The front was Princesse.
An old lady with lovely chestnut
hair (one rarely sees white hair now
adays, as it seems to have lost favor)
wore a rich black velvet with wide
point lace Insertions made over white.
The bodice was very pretty and cut ex
tremely low. The sleeves were entirely
of lace. A necklace of solitaires and a
lorgnette chain of diamonds were the
only bodice jewels worn with this tos
tume. A white brocaded satin, em
broidered in white lamb's-wool, was
much admired. This latter odd and
new trimming was highly favored by
certain modistes, who had It on all the
gowns they produced an error of
judgment, I should say, that must
have proved very trying to their pa
trons. Town Topics.

We are often asked why the Bauer Piano is
called the Bechtstein of America, and a few
historical facts with regard to this noted
instrument may be of interest to our readers.
Julius Bauer came to this country nearly
forty years ago, to reap the benefit of the ad
vertising of tjje Bechtstein Piano, by Ruben
stein, who was playing it in concert in this
country at that time. He was reasonably suc
cessful.but soon discovered that the German
made piano case would not stand this climate,
so decided to begin the manufacture of an
American piano, built on up-to-date, American
principles, containing the musical qualities of
the Bechtetein, using the Bechtstein as his
model. The result is the beautiful Bauer
Piano of todayt which is conceded by the
severest tone critics in America to be second
to no other piano in existence. Daring Julius
Bauer's life the piano was made only for his
own retail trade, but since his death the field
of the Bauer Piano has been greatly widened
through the efforts of his son, Wm. Bauer,
who is one of the ablest and most conscien
tious piano builders of this day and age, and
isnow bandied and marketed by a large num
ber of the most prominent and best posted
dealers of the country.
