The peculiarity of the fall skirt Is
that It shall lie on the ground, not In
a cascade manner, but very flat; the
lower ruffle actually spreads out in a
flare. It need not be lined, and in
many of the best new gowns the
flounce is entirely unlined, falling In
a much more graceful manner.
Skirts will be so extremely numerous
as to Inches that It will be difficult to
walk In them and they will require
practice preliminary to a promenade.
Dinner and evening gowns are pecul
iarly mentioned In this regard, for they
actually train In front, while In the
back they approach a yard in length.
The court train is not "in," but there
Is a close approach to" It In the gowns
that are making their appearance.
If the skirt Is held up properly It will
not be so very hard on the woman
who wears it, for the fashionable lift
It very high and the skirt can be raised
eight to ten Inches and held up in both
hands. This lift requires practice also,
but once learned it Is very pretty. The
drop skirt, which Is prettily trimmed,
falls below It and looks like a dress
The princess skirt is much worn, but
is unfortunately not becoming to all.
This skirt, as you know, is the one
that, instead of being belted in the or
thodox place, has no belt at all, but Is
continued upward and bustward and is
stopped abruptly just about at the
bust line, perhaps a little below.
With the long skirt there comes the
fancy fjr the. long back line, and the
appearance of the fashionable woman,
as you glance along her back, measur
ing her from belt to hem. Is that of
height. Nothing lifts your Inches like
the long -skirt, and, if you select the
straight back, with Its long middle
seam, or the back sash with Its long
ribbons, you heighten and accentuate
In their general outlines gowns re
main the same, but trimmings are un
dergoing changes, and even the skirts
are affected by them, though skirts are
usually the last to change.
The straight back effect is one for
which all are striving and to obtain it
trimmings are worn upon the front,
but not upon the back.
The severe, unbroken line, coming
from the belt right out to the end of
the train, is called the season's line of
beauty and you must seek It if you
would have your new gown a decided
The Viennese pedestrian skirt is a
new thing. It grazes the ground and Is
trimmed with strapped bands of silk;
the waist Is a silk shirt and the coat
is a three-quarter silk coat. Silk has
become such a utilitarian material that
you can combine It with serge and
still preserve the proprieties.
The old silks are at some disad
vantage compared to the new because
.they have no "cry" In them. The cry
of silks is something very highly prized
these days. Perhaps you call it the
rustle, but by whatever name It goes
It must be distinctly heard. My lady
with her soft crumple of laces and her
frou-frou of silks must be 'distinctly
heard even before she is seen, and to
carry around with you this "cry" Is
one of the things which marks the

A lovely style, worn not long ago by
Mrs. Charles Dana Gibson, showed the
Empire mode, conventionalized. It was
in the form of a dinner gown. In violet
satin cloth, -with the round neck out
lined with a wide lace collar. A dog
collar of pearls set off the neck.
The skirt was conventionalized,
though it had the long plain sweep of
the Empire, but it had a wide flounce
headed and draped with lace. A wide
silver girdle confined the waist.

have been admired In Paris and Lon

Rumor is busy stating that Captain Hobson has been showing
marked attention to Miss Stevenson, daughter of the recent vice presi
dential candidate. His friends believe it would be characteristic of the
gallant captain to become engaged privately.
flounces on the bottom and with each
flounce bordered with thick double
ruchings of moussellne. A similar
ruche Is at the head of the flounce
and Is put on In curves.
For the street madame has a gown
In sea blue, which Is a dark color,
something like ultramarine. It is lined
with coral red taffeta and the foot is
flounced with sea blue piped with coral
red. Madame's boa repeats these col
ors, blue and coral, In the shape of
pretty little ruffles set In the middle of
box pleatlngs of white moussellne.
Her hat is a wide autumn hat In wire
covered with white taffeta and trim
med with autumn flowers and blue
with a dash of sumach.
The autumn hat will have a "made"
tendency. It will be constructed of
cloth or silk or will have Its crown, at
least, covered with a piece of the dress
material. The straw hat has partially
disappeared under Its weight of flow
ers and lace, and under Its covering
of silk and feathers; and the felt hat
bids fair to follow suit. In the autumn
you will hardly see a hat of felt, for
the prevailing style will be a "made"
hat, covered with velvet, or with silk,
or in some manner covered with dress
The exception to this will be the
white felt hat, which will be made up
In the sailor styles, square crowned
and worn with uprolllng sides.
The white felt hat. trimmed with
feathers or with ribbon or with a
Roman scarf, is one of these; the lit
tle jetted toque Is another; the wide
hat of velvet and ostrich plumes Is
a third, and the hat that Is made of
alternate layers of straw and chiffon,
a fold of each, is another of these all-the-year-round
hats. None of these
will go out of vogue, and in the new
fall hats many pretty varieties of
these styles are promised.
