WITH THE PARISIAN SANCTION I
Postilion Hat la Sure to Be Copied
Though No Longer In the
The fancy for the postilion hat has
boon short-lived so far as Paris is con
cerned, and London never greatly
cares for millinery which tho Paris
lenno accepts as blen amusante. More
or less curly of brim, and with tall
stiff crown, these hats trimmed with
a feather en fantalslo or a floral
aigretto had n .brief furore, and cer
tainly when new they were most ap
pealing. They could not, however,
bear repetition, and sinco people have
taken to wearing them they have lost
their attraction. For onco the French--woman.
seems to have forgotten that
the fact of a hat being chic when worn
by a woman of ono typo may make
it impossible, for thoso who belong to
This style of hat is, however, being
made . for autumn, and milliners are
looking favorably upon its possibilities
In beaver felt and plush.
This is for veiling or dolalne, and
has the fronts trimmed with groups
of fine tucks, between which strips of
insertion aro sown; tho back is trim
med to match. Tucks are made down
tho outside of sleove, and tho cuffs
and collar aro of entirely tucked ma
terial. Materials required: 2 yards 40
Inches wide, 2 yards insertion.
Lace and Pearls.
An original headdress 1b a simple
mob cap of lace, encircled with a
string of priceless pearls, and with
ono of the new straight feather aig
rettes standing erect in tho front.'
For tho girl whoso hat is not ono of
her best points these caps aro a god
send; but it always seems to mo a
pity to cover up bo completely a real
ly pretty head of hair.
An Inexpensive tablo decoration
noted by Harpers Bazar is as follows:
A crepe papor roso is hung from tho
chandelier, ribbons coming to each
plato. Tho conterpleco is a large vase
of roses with roses nround the base,
The bonbon dishes are tall glasses,
and the favors are roses painted on
cardboard. Baskets of roses are on
either tide of the table.
and cuffs. The original shawl frlngt
encircles tho bottom of the coat
which Is of three-quarter length. A
white felt hat completes tho costumo
DRESDEN IDEAS COME BACK
Revival la a Natural Result of the
Fad That Calls for the Pan
With tho revival of tho pannier
draperies conies back a decided em
phasis on drcsden silks, with all the
exquisite colorings that wo associate
with the Dresden shepherdesses. Pinks
and blue, yellows and pale green, aro
tho backgrounds on which aro
sprinkled fascinating bouquetd, gar
lands and even baskets of flowers.
The dresden silks and waUns aro
particularly adapted to suit tho
coatees that uro incorporaced on after
noon and evening frocks for summer.
They aro not so Btrlking in contrast
with a plain, thin fabric and there is
great scope for color combinations and
Tho rose seasoil, 60 noticeable in
fashions for tho summer, is a timely
one for flowered mulls, organdies, mus
lins, voiles and chiffons with which the
dresden silks effectively combine.
Hats covered with dresden taffeta
are decidedly chic. Bridesmaids now
are favoring hats of this type to con
tinue tho idea of tho drcsden coateo
thrown over simple and usable frocks
of white or plain colors.
Little dresden silk slippers for the
rest hour add a new touch to tho
negligee set, .especially if bindings or
trimmings of drcsden silk bo used on
Dresden sashes, with -an extra lino
of the ribbon quilling trailing in and
out among tho bunches of flowers, nro
accepted by womankind aij an Idea
that makes tho assurance of beauty
It is undeniable that tho dresden col
orings in designs that aro varied and
Inexpensive are a factor in the general
beauty of summer styles. Aro you
For evening wear throughout the
winter underskirts will remain as
they aro tills summer, and some of
tho clinrming bargains so dear to tho
heart of womankind may bo picked
up at present, as, for instance, a pet
ticoat of tho finest satin mpssallno in
tho palest bluo, with a kneo-deop
frill of kilted transparent lawn ovor
a pleated frill of silk, slashed at in
tervals and held together by narrow
bands of palo blue ribbon.
To Keep on Pumps.
When pumps slip at tho heels and
are too loose, pasto a piece of volvot
In tho back, with tho nap side out.
If tho shoej still spread, tako thorn
to a shoemaker and havo him put in
a casing for a draw, string, or a piece
of clastic which Is tightly fastonpd.
Overshoes that clip at tho heel and
aro too big may bo made more com
fortable by glueing n thick piece of
chamois up tho back of tho heel. Use
a glue that stands water.
Silk Apples on Hats.
Tho black hat is amazingly popular
at the moment in London. Whito
tho favorito trimming, but yellow
makes a very close rival. A black
hat that I admired Immensely had
tho rather low crown completely cov
ered with bunches of small silkap
pies in varying . shades of yelTow,
brown and palo green. A few npplo
leaveB, very yellow ones, wero mixed
In between, and both fruit and learei
were kept as flat as possiblo,

MEANING OF "AT HALF MAST"
At First Universal Symbol WasToken
of Submission and Respect
Perhaps you have notico that when
ever a prominent person dies, espe
cially if ho Is connected with tho gov
ernment, tho flngs on public build
ings nro hoisted only part of tho way
xop, remarks tho Toronto Mall and Ex
press. This Ib called "hnlf mast."
Did you over stop to think what con
nection tlioro could bo botween a flag
that warf not properly hoisted and tho
death of a great man? '
Ever since flags wero used in war It
has boon tho custom to havo tho Hag
of tho superior or conquering nation
abovo that of tho inferior itself hopo
lessly beaton cmf rlnifwymfw pppppp
abovo that of the Inferior or vanquish
ed. Whon nn army found itself hope
lessly beaten It hnuled its Hag down
far enough for tlio flag of tho victors
to bo placed above It on tho samo
polo. This was n token not only of
submission, but of respect.
In thoso dnyB when a famous sol
dier died flags wero lowered out of
respect to his memory. Tho custom
long ago passed from purely mili
tary usago to public llfo of all kinds,
the flug flying at half mast being a
sign thnt tho dead man was worthy
of universal respect. Tho space loft
abovo it Is for tho flag of tho great
conqueror of all tho angel of death.
