This week art presented illustrations and descriptions of three of the most recent ideas in fashions devised by Kedfern of New York.

It Is of soft ribbed silk In any solid color that may be desired, and has a rolled collar, wide cuffs and patch pocket of Oriental brocade, in which some tinsel Is woven. A dashing, military air is given it by the arrangement of cords and drop loops across the front. The Turkish fez which crewns the curly head is in silk of the same color as the jacket. From this mock-masculine conceit to tho tea-gown is quite a transition; but the latter is always in favor, and to its many admirers herewith we give an illustration which cannot fail to please.
