(from oue own correspondent J

Dreismakers are now bard at york, and the air Is fall of ratnors aa to what ia going to be worn this spring, Dlrectoire and Empire styles reign for the present, and moat often a mixure of both. Bat these •re brfgion'pg to be replaced by the Greek and Princete costames, though made ap at present Bolely for evening wear. Should trTe style take, they will be adopted for walklrg enstomes this spring. Tho low-crowned bonnets and bale are Itlll In vogue ; for this, theatre and concert goers may be gratefal, there is however, In some of the new hats a tendency to g*l In breadth what they have lost In height.

Tbe«e are several on what might be termed the mushroom model Th-Jiiaw toques are certainly more pleasing ; the Henri II made Io orange colored velvet, edged with a twist of blaok velvet is pretty — a flexible jet arrow U plaaed lound the orown, with a black bird and blaok feathers In front The Grecgue toque, m emerald-green velvet, arranged fan-shape on one side and on the other a grey bird oalled minutas. fs the most stylish of all ; the edge is trimmed round with a gold Greogue pattero. The Roland hat, m felt, with tquarlsh upturned brim, Is still worn ; also the Romeo, with turned down brim with bows of ribbon no cerneath resting on the httir, this hat has long ostrich features th*t droop behind quite over the hair. Tbera is evidently a tendency to rotnrn to the Princess bonnet, aa there is the desire to re' urn to this mode of dress.

Toero appears to be qaita a rage for fanoy balls jast now, and some of the prettiest fancy dreaaes hava been floral A. daffodil was among these. The dress itself was yellow, with a green sash ; on the head an immense daffodil was plaoed like a cap, -with the petals resting on the hair, the green leaves above them, and a ■talk Uioing from these, and bent backwards io that it disapeared somewhere opon the shoulders. A poppy was another good drees. The bodice was green tulle and the skirt <ras red with «ilken poppy petals, realistically crinkled, falling over the red tulle The cap was a poppy tamed downwards with a •mall stalk erect. Bntteroups and daisies was another rural personation, . carried out by means of a white dress, a yellow •ash, and buoohea of batteroaps and daisies m the hair, on the dress and on the toes of the broczi shoes.

The solidified perfumed Oriza pencil ft the novelty of the d»y, no lady of l aahton going on a visit, to a ball or soiree, Is without it. The pencil Is very elegant, mnd it made m 12 soents. One has only to rob slightly the objeotsto be perfumed. It is a aloe and useful Invention, waioh dcci great credit to the well known perfumery of M Legrand. + Paris, Janoary 31, 1889.
