change. We, in America, who
have always loved the exercise,
of walking, find the change very
grateful, too, and we are not slow

the charming embroidered bro-
cades of the moment, in silver or

satins, veiled with beaded nets

velvet is used, combined with
taffeta, silk or faille, or as band-

are quite popular.
Dancing is still in favor. Some
