INNOVATION. > ? ? : > ? : ? : > : : The choice ot white for wedding gowns is really of comparatively modern origin. The Roman brides yvove yellow, and In most eastern countries pink is tho bridal color. During the middle ages and in the Renaissance period brides v/ore crimson, to the exclusion of all other colors. Most o� tho Plantagenet and Tudor queens were married in that vivid hue whicli is still popular in parts of Brittany, where the bride is usually dressed in crimson brocade. It was Mary Stmyt who first changed the color of bridal garments. At her marriage with Francis the Second ot France in 1558. which took place not before the altar hut before the great doors of Notre Dame, she was gowned in white brocade, with a train ot pale blue Persian velvet sl.v yards in length. This innovation caused a great stir in the fashionable world at that tin\e. It was not, however, until (lulto at the end of tho .seventeenth century � that pure white-tho color worn by royal widows-became popular for bridal garments.-Family Herald. �J Old Fashioned Bs^rn Dance The Commeice Red Cross will give an old-fashioned Bam Dance on the evening of FRIDAY, August 23rd AT I WEIGAND'S BARN, COMMERCE REFRESHMENTS SERVKD ijv GENTLEMEN DUNNINQ'S ORCHESTRA YOUR aufPfOItT ft SpLICIJEO.
