Pahdesbus. — At the present moment this most useful appendage to a lady's out door costume, is more than ever in request. , They are generally worn composed of silk materials, trimmed with broad folds, or an open worked trimming of passementerie. The most elegant

are in muslin, lined with a straw or lilac taffeta, and encircled with rich descriptions of laces. Bonnets. — Crepe bonnets with shaded rib bons are now much worn. Some very elegant hats in paillc de riz have also lately appeared ; the ribbons being dark shaded verdant green, or in pink, in imitation of a shaded rose, com mencing with the lightest tint, and ending in the China rose colour. Others are composed of full white tulle, simply decorated with a branch of a light foliage. Mousing Dresses. — For a morning toi lette nothing can be prettier than those coloured muslin peignoirs, encircled with three narrow trillings, plaited and -fluted very small, and edged with a Valenciennes lace. This negligt is always fresh aud new, and over which is worn with a large pelerine or demi mantelet of the same material, trimmed to match. Roues.— Some are composed of the opale, others the Camtlion Bilk ; the form of these pretty dresses are well worthy of notice, the corsage and jupc being open, and laced with large silk laces, in the Tyrolien-^tyle : the openings of the body and skirt ?Veilig 'edged'
