GOWNS Foreshadows of Autumn Hues. In color combinations there is now a tendency to combinations of several colors in the same applique, rather than two colors and several tones of the same color as heretofore. Just a touch of gold tinsel Is seen on many of these, but only a touch, so that the result is never garish. Aluminum is now being used In tinsel embroidery combined with applique trimmings in gray taffeta, and as aluminum does not tarnish and is very light in weight, it is invaluable. Flower designs still predominate in the' applique designs, taffetas and the other soft and lustrous silks being used. In colors for the coming autumn royal blue is predicted as a leader abroad, while in this country the shade termed inauguration blue is to be a much-use- d color. Greens in myrtle, reseda and other dark shades will be fashionable, but browns will fall behind their run of last year, while the dark shades of plum, purple and kindred hues are being manufactured in quantities. All these indications from manufacturers show which way the wind will blow, for whatever fashion might wish to dictate she is obliged to use the fabrics in the market, and these are at least six always manufactured months ahead of their use, sometimes a year. or THE MOMENT collar sometimes introduced shows glimpses of the band of ribbons passing beneath; and, again, these embroidered canvas collars are in various instances pierced with wide buttonholes in front, and tied with the ribbons, which, as before, are arranged in the fashion of rosettes. A dozen or even more will be needed, and each one is cut in the middle of one side up through to the center.

Novelties In White Serge. In the white serge frocks, the French makers have introduced many novelties in cut and line. The Empire ideas that have taken so firm a hold lately appear here, as elsewhere, and Empire coats, long or short, are made up in white serge or white cloth with skirts to match and with severe tailor finish or with collars, cuffs and motifs of heavy open work embroidery on . linen. Beautifur Blouses. blouses, leaving the throat bare or worn with a transparent guimpe and collar of lace, are liked for summer frocks, but though charming they are not so youthful as the blouse frilled to some sort of yoke and fastening in the back, and they should be reserved for the older girls. Here . again we often find very heavy em-insertion band or applique broidery, bordering the surplice, while the rest of the frock is trimmed lightly and fluffly in Valenciennes insertion and edging. Heavy embroidery insertion scalloped on both edges and with Valenciennes frills bordering the scallops Is liked for the surplice borders and may be used, too, upon the sleeve and as heading for skirt flounces.
