New York, Oct. 26. Fashion would not
lie fashion, if it did not keep constantly
■chaugijyj; and though it seems to move in a
circle, yet the revolving panorama always
manages to throw up something different
end new in the way of combinations.
Manufactured trimmings have been ignor
ed for the past fivo years. Ornameutation
has been executed with pieces of constrast
ing material and “effects” obtained by put
ting two or more fabrics, colors and shades
of color together. Evidently trimming
manufacturers came to a determination to
make an effort and put a stop to this state
ul things. Passementeries have been re
vived ainl appear in an infinite variety of
ingenious and effective designs, that are
formed like an embroidery of wheel pat
terns, fan shapes, or network of braids in
terlocked and fastened with minute but
tons; or lattice work with border represent
ing a frame.
Some styles are finished with heavy
fringes, witli beads or tinselled threads in
termixed ; others show knotted cords in open
squares, with small bails, like twine, hanging
by a twist of the same in irregular pendants.
Military cords and aiguilettes tfypear, but
they are less elegant than the finer orna
ments, which show lace like stitches and
are, in fact, a reproduction in black silk of
the cotton cord and tape, put together with
lace or embroidery stitches, as cuffs, collars
and collarettes a few years ago, and which
made for the time being anew and much
It is a fact, indeed, that the deft hands
•which were thrown out of employment by
the sudden collapse of these “handmade”
lingerie, are now engaged in the effect to re
habilitate the passmenterie form of dress
trimmings; so that with hundreds, it is not
a question of fashion, but of bread and but
ter. The improvement in them shows per
haps experience gained in finer work. The
forms are no longer enlarged buttons,
“plaques,” palm leaves and coarse trepil
patterns, but spear heads, epaulettes,
elongated bretalles and fisher-like trim
mings. The military braid, cord and tags
are arranged in sets of festoons for the
skirt, as well as the bodice; the group of
those cable curds beginning at the throat, on
the right ot the bodice, and terminating at
the left on the top of the shoulder over the
arm. The elaborate pieces for front of
nkirts or panels are very expensive when
they are of all silk and in the new lace and
embroidery patterns; for as much work is
expended upon them as upon hand braid
ing and embroidery; the difference being,
that the designs are less original and exclu
sive—more conventional; and that materials,
such as cords, braids, wire (for wheels) small
buttons and the like, are brought into play
to aid stitches.
1.0! THE POOR BEAD.
With the revival of these dull, black
gimps and passe men trios, beads and beaded
trimmings retire into the background. The
reign of glitter has perhaps beep* long
enough. Beads have certainly lasted longer
than ever before, except, among the abor
igines. But then, great skill has been
brought to bear upon their manipulation
and arrangement. Nor are they yet quite
displaced. Great efforts are naturally made
to get rid of the costly beaded trimmings
still on hand, and for showy purposes there
is nothing that can take their place. The
large designs, however, and large, beaded
effects have quite disappeared. Black jet
and white jet are used less in patterns.
Then to cover a surface of lace, satin or
velvit with a sort of gold or silver dust, the
elements of which can only be detected upon
This also is true of the use of colored
beads and tinselled effects upon costly ma
terials. They are showered in minute pat
terns or grouped in small triangular or dia
mond pointed figures, and sometimes cover
a skirt as small, artificial flowerets have
covered some skfrts of white or black tulle
lor two seasons past.
In Paris, these pretty effects in small jets
upon tulle, are arranged in three colors upon
black, ruby, green and brown or amber and
used for bonnets, panels, corsage trim
mings and for the transparent fan, which is
just now the indispensable accompaniment
of a tulle bonnet. These embroideries are
executed by hand. They are not always
done in beads. They are softer and pre
ferred by many, in silk or shaded chenille
particularly by those who are tired of
But really, the great merit of the fashions
to-day is, that you can choose for yourself
and make fashion as well as another, if you
can succeed in working out an attractive
idea. The worst feature of the passemen
terie trimmings is, that being raised from
tiie surface and usually composed of lighter
materials than the body upon which they
are placed, they soon grow shabby and
prove a poor investment of the additional
cost of the dress or manite upon which they
are placed. Still, the cost does uot differ
much, whether trimmings are made or only
put on; the whole cost amounts to much the
same. Certainly there is little difference in
the aggregate amount of dressmaker and
dry goods bills.
THE AUTUMN DISPLAYS
made by the great Sixth avenue houses,
give the impression that we are a nation of
twenty-millionaires. The costumes on exhi
bition on the occasion of the “opening”s—
limited now to this quarter —or to acelebra
tion of enlargement of premises, were
marked at prices ranging from $l5O to
$575 and no imported dress could be found
under the first price.
Simple gowns of wool, with velvet pan
els and mounting, but silk lining, were
$lB5. The most charming dregs of the
whole season’s showing, was an evening
gown in cream satin ducheese by Rouzoand;
the ornamentation, most refined and beauti
fully executed embroidery upon the
rich fabric in various shades of silk, with
gold and silver thread introduced. The
most showy was a combination of bright
yellow perm dr soie, with yellow brocaded
flowers witli green stems, tied in natural
bouquets upon a white ground. It was a
dress that would need no telephone to speak
l'-r it, for it would herald itself through
out the world. Tills was tho dress for
"hicli $575 was asked; but one could not
imagine that that sum could induce any
body to wear it.
It is a marvsl, however, who buys all the
costly things that are shown: and more of a
marvel when one considers tho tricks and
shifts that aro resorted to, to attract cus
tom; ana the frantic eagerness of the
crowds of women shoppers to obtain a bar
gain. In an other’,rise nearly empty store,
recently, a douse mass of women surounded
a counter which contained pieces of
figured, cotton-backed velvet or velveteen,
in common colors, reduced to 49c. per yard.
Ordinarily it would have been unsaleable at
any price; but announced as a bargain, it
drew eager, anxious throngs, who stood in
massed rows and bought the “six yards”
which was the shrewd limit made to
< veryono’s purdiase —without looking, or be
ing ablo to touch tho goods; except as it was
l anded over the shoulders of those standing
nearer tho point of attraction. Zola has
Tainted nothing worse than this as a feature
of modern shopping.
THE PARISIAN STYLES
ns seen in Paris, are very quiet this season.
Unfortunately we get our ideas from dresses
prepared in Paris for our stage; construe*ert
lor the ex press purpose of “out Heroding
Herod.” The effect of wardrobe is discount- j
fd in the cose of some actressas and is an
important, pnrhsns the most important
pm t of tboir stock in trade. Girls rave
over it, women in lioarding houses talk
about it and crowd the matinee perform
ances to seo it,. It is well-known by mau
ag< is that tho “social element” in theatre
partios and these who usually compose
them, care little for a play, know nothing
about acting, do not wont to be interested
or even amused, for it is not “the thing” to
laugh or be interested in anything but one’s
self and clothes; and clothes, therefore and
a figure to exnibit them, are indispensable
elements of a society success on the stage or
off it. Asa lady said tiie other day, with
perfect gravity and totally unconscious
irony: “Dress' is everything.”
Walking up Broadway tho other day with
a lady who had just returned from a five
years' stay abroad, site remarked with
astonishment upon the general size of the
touniHre , the exaggerated shelf it formed
at the back of tho skirt, and the pronounced
exhibition of styles and colors. High-colored
autumn gowns of wool displayed huge
sleeves, tied in above and below the elbow
with velvet; and designs were paraded on
tiie street only suited to the dressing room
or tho boudoir. This is the reflection of the
footlights, from a standpoint, it is true,
which does not represent either tho best of
the stage or the best of society; but it is the
element which is popularly supposed to
stand for both, which is the most talked
about, and largely fills the society columns
of the newspapers. In tho meantime, the
majority of women still continue to get one
new gown and make over their old ones.
I Uo question is
WHAT SHALL THAT NEW ONE BE?
Ohi green, of course, serpent green or
moss green: it is all the same, or at least
few know the difference. Make it up with
plush ? No. Plush does uot look or wear
as well as velvet, while the loose, fuzzy pile
destroys the outlines of the figure. Make it
up with velvet and add the new, black, open
sqiear heads in passementerie to the panelled
sides, to tho vest or ravers of the bodice and
to the wrap, if your dress is completed by
one to match. But this is not necessary
with a green costume. Brown is the only
color which does not seem to go well with
other colors, which requires the costume to
be complete in itself; yet artists say brown
is “friendly.” It is true that green and
brown and brown and blue have been suc
cessfully blended in materials and designs,
but it is only when they are blended in
small quantities, not when they are con
trasted in large ones, that they are suc
THE FASHIONABLE USE OF FUR.
But about that dress. If you live in a
cold climate you will not care for light or
fanciful trimmings; you will want fur.
There is nothing so handsome or becoming,
in cold weather, as a finish of fur to a cloth
or velvet dress; and if the fur is good and
rightly used, it conveys a certain air of dis
tinction to very simple costumes; This year
fur is employed as trimming in novel ways.
Instead of a border, it is used as an edge,
tiie fabric which composes the garment or
the supplementary trimming of rich braid,
over-lapping the fur. It is also inserted at
the seams, to outline panels, the top of the
arm and the upper and lower line of the
standing collar. There is not the comfort
in these lines of fur, that there is in the
warm border; and they are more trouble,
but the effect is novel and the finish is there
without too much warmth when the supple
mentary body fur fishu or collarette is re
Redfern, who us to the soft,
curled lamb’s wool, several years ago, has
brought out another new fur this year, or
the revival of an old one. It is called “cara
cal” and is astrakhan in large, smooth
waves, which have the effect of moire in
fur. It is not youthful in appearance, but
is exceedingly well adapted to mourning
and to the wear of ladies beyond middle
age, who have begun to restrict their choice
of material for dress, to black and sober
PRETTY GIRLS IN GRAY AND WHITE.
Gray can no longer, however, bo consid
ered exclusively a middle-aged color. For
some time past, aud even now, gray iji chosen
by young women, both in wool and silk, as
the color for street aud in-door dresses. A
gray cloth suit made recently was panelled
with curled lamb’s wool, soft as down. The
basque, cut with small revers at the throat
and with cutaway points, displayed at both
openings a part of the simulated vest of
white lamb’s wool, of which also the fez cap
and muff were composed. This was an ex
cessively dainty and charming little cos
tume, but it is only advisable under excep
tional circumstances, and for those who can
afford a variety of gowns for street wear.
Asa rule, gray is too cold a color for win
ter, and if worn frequently needs to be com
bined with a warmer color, ruby or amber
or both united in silk or beaded trimmings.
Steel trimmings are revived for use on gray
cloth and silk, but they are deadly, unless
mixed with jets in black, or placed upon a
darker or a warm background. It is one of
the results of tha belated way in which wo
get our ideas, that steel is brought
to us for ornamentation, at a period when
cold sharpens it into a weapon, instead of a
beautifler, and moisture turns it to rust
after a few weeks of exposure.
TULLE FOR EVENING WEAR.
Tulle has been gradually obtaining an as
cendancy, which it seems now to have quite
reached, as an element in elegant toilets
for evening wear. The more elegant, the
more tulle; and nothing can be more dainty
or more desirable, especially for young
women entering society, than tulle upon
tulle, over soft, all silk or satin, wide, soft,
satin ribbons for garniture and a hand bou
quet of white roses. The style of the ma
jority of these dresses is exactly that of
thirty-five years ago. A plain silk or satin
skirt —demi-trained—overskirts of tulle cov
ering it entirely. Round, low bodice of silk,
draped with tulle, ala Vierge or in surplice
style and small, round epaulette sleeves of
tulle only, caught up in the cantre.
A debutante who goes much into society,
should start with at least three such dresses.
One in white, one in carnation pink, one in
pale yellow or a peach tint. White flowers
are used with each of these during the first
season, roses being always distinguished by
a certain cachet in winter, because they are
costliest; but lilies of the valley, though
they fade quicker are more youthful in ap
pearance, and peas—if they can bo
obtained —are pretty with a peach
tint in tulle and silk', or nun’s veiling.
PINKED AND VANDYKED EDGES
appear again upon underwear, and also
upon some evening skirts made of soft silk
in delicate colors. The flower effect pro
duced is very pretty and particularly well
adapted to silken underskirts; but it looks
rather affected when applied to
in the stylo, with low short,
“baby” waist; short high puff for sleeves
ami straight skirt, which hangs linip Mid

of velvet and there was a small rovers and
collar cf velvet, above which was a little
“canoness" vest and ruffle of white mull
and block lace. Tho striped petticoat only
discovered itself in front, tiie wool-corded
and very soft, formed the skirt and was
bordered with velvet and ornamented at
tho side with knotted silk cords, from which
was suspended an alms bag of velvet.
The gown in two greens v.as a rloiiilelte

It was open in front to the throat, at tho
back only to tiie waist. Into the back of
the skirt wus inserted a box-plaited panel of
the striped velvet and brocade, which pro
duced in two shades of green—by means of
cut and uncut, wavings—very striking
effects. A soft, folded vest, of crepe de
chine was inserted in tiie front of the dress
and carried to the waist, where it was con
fined by u sash. Below this, the striped
velvet formed tiie front, and it was visible
again in gores upon tiie sides and in cuffs,
below the full sleeves of plain wool.
THE CLOAK OF THE SEASON,
like tiie bonnet of the season, is varied and
seems to be adapted to all kinds and con
ditions of women. It is long, with sleeves
and ulso without. The popular style is with
sleeves and fitted to the back as far as tiie
waist; below tnis, laid in plaits to form the
fullness or in accordion folds. A newer
style has double fronts, the second form
ing the sleeves and hanging straight from
the shoulder to the edge of the skirt. This
is very handsomely made up in the
fine “shadow” or velvet cloths and trimmed
with Labrador caracal or black lynx fur.
The design is also adapted to the rich braid
ing patterns which cover the shoulders, ex
tend entirely down tho front and to the
waist behind. Mahogany red or dark
myrtle green with biavk ornamentation,
are stylish combinations; but at! all black
or dark gray reversible silk, which is new
this season—an Antwerp armure— is jier
haps the most elegant of all the cloaking
materials, particularly for an elderly lady.
This may be lined with plush, with quilted
satin or with chinchilla and trimmed with
fur or rich passementeries.
Fur capes and capes generally have gono
into oblivion. Their place has been taken
by small mantles, vitites and dolmans,
which afford more protection for the arms
and are susceptible of prettier, more dressy
effects. The small mantle has always the
advantage of not concealing a handsome
dress; and is therefore better adapted for
visiting and social purposes than the en
veloping wrap. In the South and South
west, the small wrap, which forms part of
the costume, is all that is needed in winter,
m addition to an ulster or light storm cloak;
and the present forms, which fit in closely
at tho back, are finished with a fullness like
a basque and have sleeves which cover the
arms yet do not confine them, are most, con
venient as well as elegant, when made in
velvet or in the material of the dress, with
trimming to match. Jenny J i nk.
WHITE SLAVES IN HAWAII.
A Remarkable Story of Enforced Ser
vitude on Sugar Plantations.
From the Lon Angeles Times.
H. Benedict, a waiter in a Main street
restaurant, only reached this city a short
time ago. Ho has just escaped from a life
of slavery that is, according to his story, a
hundred times more severe in every respect
than were the old slavery days before the
war, Learning of this fact, a reporter
looked him up and drew the following state
ment, which was told in a straightforward
manner that cannot be dishalieved:
“Almost six years ago,” Mr. Benedict be
gan, “I was a waiter in a San Francisco
restaurant, when I was taken sick, and the
doctor who attended mo told me that I
would have to get away from San Fran
cisco unless I wanted to die of consumption.
The first day that I was able to be out I
walked down to the water front and was
watching the ships discharge, when a
stranger approached and asked me to take
a walk. After having a little conversation
with me he learned that I wished to leave
the city, and he told me that he was friend
ly with a number of people in Honolulu,
and that he was confident that I could
get work as soon as I reached
the islands. He told m<. that ho
represented a certain firm, and was confi
dent that I could get free passage to the
islands if I would go. I met him the next
day, and he informed me that ho had se
cured thirteen others who would go, and he
introduced me to several of them. They
all thought it a good chance t.< get out of
California for a while, and I consented to
go. We sailed on a schooner under a man
named Myers, and were treated like regu
lar passengers for a few days, or until we
all got over our uneasiness, when Capt.
Myers came around one day with a big
blank book in his hands. Ho asked us our
true names, place of birth, age, and what
occupation we had followed.
“Wo thought it very strange proceedings,
but said nothing, although we were greatly
troubled. When we reached the islands we
did not go into port, but stopped outside.
A steam launch was soon alongside, and a
man who represented himself to lie a doctor
came aboard. He and tho Captain were
closeted for quite a while, when the doctor
came aft and gave each one of us a medical
examination. The Captain and doctor then
left the ship, and a few hours after weighed
anchor, and for two days wo were sailing in
and out among islands. Finally we were
landed at a large sugar plantation and given
to understand that we were to work in the
field. We learned the next day that the plan
tation was owned by two men who were
considered the hardest task masters on the
islands. We were told that we had been
employed through the captain, and that we
were to get tbO a month each. AVe hesi
tated about going to work at first, but the
foreman talked very nice to us, and after
we had worked a month we went to the
foreman's office to draw our pay. Here we
were horrified to learn that we had been
sold to the sugar planters as slaves for so
much a head • that it would take us just
three years to buy our freedom, if wo
worked every day. We were ci-edited with
25c. a day when we worked, and when we
were too sick to work they charged
us 75c. a day for board. They paid
so much for us, and wo had to work our
freedom out at the rate of 25c. a day. and
under the laws of the island we agreed to
this contract the first day we worked—as
going to work with our own free will sig
nifies that we were willing to work for the
planters for our passage to the islands.
Well, we made a hard kick against such
treatment, but there was no help for it, as
the plantation was guarded by a company
of native soldiers who were only too willing
to shoot a white slave who Attempted to
“When wo refused to work wo were placed
in tho stocks and whipped until tho blood
streamed off our hacks. When a man
wanted to lay off because of sickness a
plantation doctor was called in, and if tho
doctor suiii he was not sick the fellow was
either whipped or killed. I have known
them to take a man out and shoot him lie
cause he could not work. A man was taken
violently sick one day, but tho doctor said
he was all right, wad the py W’seor made him
go to tho field. He sthoggied along until
about noon, when he dropped down dead.
AVe were worked ten hours a day, and no
set of men were ever worked harder in tho
world. The work on a sugar plantation is
never ended, and there are but few men who
can hold it up many years. Out of
the fourteen who went there with me. there
are but few who lived through their slavery
days. After I had been there three years I
thought my time was up, but I hod a sur
prise in store for mo in the shape of a bill
the company had against tne tor eating su
gar cane and playing sick. The overseer
had charged me with every mouthful of su
gar cane I over ate, and it took me just two
years more to work it out at the rate of two
bits a day. I never ate any more sugar
cane, and, as good luck would have it, I
was not sick. It took me jiwt live years
and a few weeks to work out, and if I had
to tell you what I suffered during that time
vou would wonder that lam alive to-day.

system that is being carried on in the Sand

For Pure Singing Tone.
The American .1 rt Journal at New York
thus speaks of Mrs. ('calm IS. P. t’nr.v, of
Rochester, N. Y., who is now recognised us
one of tlic finest Pianists and most success
ful Teachers that America has produced:
“Mia. Cary made flying visits to New
York, receiving valuable instruction from
iS. B. Mills, and drawing inspiration from
those two great tone masters, Thollierg and
Qottsclmlk. The production of a pure
Mnyhiij tone had always been a study with
her, and, observing that these two great
pianists used only (he Chiekerinif t'iclnos,
she made a thorough investigation, which
resulted in her purchasing the first Chick
ering Grand that wont into Western Now
York. Since that time Mrs. Cary has lava
a firm and steadfast friend of that Piano
Forte, and it i* a matter of conscience with
her to advise the use of these instruments
with her class, over TO of whom possess
A Word to thk Wise.- A Piano which
is used and indorsed by such nmgnitlccnt
artists as Thallierg, Gottschalk, Rivi King,
Teresa Carcno, Win. H. Slierwood and Mrs.
Cary is certainly a safe and desirable Piano
to buy. Over 74,000 ('bickerings have been
sold, and to-day, as always, the Chickerisg
Pianos mead the world.
