The gown was of green-gray cloth
trimmed with velvet ribbon. The
sleeves were rich with falling lace, and
' a wide lace collar fell over and below
the shoulders. The belt was wide, made
of velvet and trimmed with buttons.
Chiffon and velvet formed the collar,
which a jeweled pin fastened in front.

with heavy chiffon veils looped most
artistically all over its surface and

stitching, and she carried a big black

A younger girl wore a stunning
yachting suit of dark blue and white..
The short skirt was of blue serge, with
the gores outlined In narrow stitched
bands of white. The bodice was entire
ly o'f white, with sleeves wide from the
elbow and caught into a cuff. The sail
or collar met in a point in front, with
a sailor's knot of pale blue chiffon.
The bodice was bloused a little both
back and front. This girl wore a hand

were of the very widest and loosest or
der imaginable. They seemed to have
no fit anywhere.
Speaking of coats reminds me of the
most novel collection at present in view
in New York. These are at Wallack's
theatre. Some of them, though almost
grotesque, are undoubtedly stylish.
The three most remarkable are worn
by Miss Alice Fischer. One Is a plain,
loose, three-quarter length ("neglige" I
should call It), in unllned black veiling,
trimmed only with rows of beautiful
silver braid about the extremely wide
cuffs, lay-down collar and down the
fronts. Another is a tan of the same
length and cut, made of. heavy linen or
canvas, and elaborately decorated all
around with thick'and wide cream-colored
torchon lace. The kimono-like
sleeves are banded at the cuff with
black satin, and the collars is also of
black satin. The coat Is slashed at the
bottom at each side, the lace trimming
the openings. Ijarge black braid but
tons, -with .long wooden pendants,
braid-wrapped, appear on each shoul
der blade, and four similar ornaments
are displayed on the front.
A really lovely and graceful even
ing cape somewhat redeems the others.
It Is made of exquisite silky white
shawls, with very long fine fringe.
These form a double cape effect, with
long points back and front. The wrap
is finished with much chiffon about the
top and falling over the front with
I marvel that more has not been said
about some of the gowns seen in "Mrs.
Jack." The white costume worn by
the star in the second act is striking.
The front of the skirt Is made with a
panel, as are nearly all the new ones,
outlined on either side with tiny sliver
paillettes. Flanking this are other ta
pering panels of alternate spangles and
white satin. These form the skirt,
which fits smoothly In the back. A
superb flounce of Irish crochet lace Is
let In from below the knee, meeting the
satin again in a train at the feet. The
bodice, which shows the same garni
ture, fits tightly in the back and
blouses slightly In front. It is decol
lette, having the neck finished in
chiffon intermingled with odd little
ermine tails. These tails also edge the
foot of the train and skirt. The sleeves
are quite the daintiest things, possible.
Two short caps of Irish crochet partly
encircle the top arm, falling to meet
by about three inches. This space Is
spanned by three strands of small
pearls with delicate pendants attached.
The effect Is admirable. "White chiffon
is tied about the bottom of the caps,
with flowing ends at the elbow.
An exquisite crepe de chine gown
with Infinite hand work Is worn by Mrs.
Bouclcault, and a lavender chiffon in
the last act. wonderfully slurred and
befurbelowed. Is also worthy of atten
tion. I never knew that the flimsy Japan
ese silks could be made up so attract
ively as is Mrs. Jack's pale green.
This Is made with a high neck and el
bow sleeves. The low-pointed yoke and
collar are of fine white lace, with dain
ty colored appliques, pink predominat
ing. The sleeves are of tucked silk,
with wide lose cuff turning back from
the elbow to show wide embroidered
chiffon flounces, mingled with fine
black velvet ribbons falling in loops
from the elbow. The skirt shows a few
tucks and a wide Inserting of the white
Miss Fischer's hats are all flower
trimmed, with leaves and stems trail
ing over the back hair; while one of
the other actresses runs to white, with
flat, wide crowns and lace frills falling
over the face.
The stage gowns at the garden thea
tre on the opening night were
somewhat of a disappointment, but
there were some beauties in the audi
ence. One of these appeared upon a lady
who generally accompanies a well-
known first-nighter, and who is always
remarked for the elaborateness of her
costumes. Palest blue satin and
heavy white lace of fabulous cost com
posed the skirt and bodice. The for
