New Models of Hats for Motor
i Wear Are Most Attractive
Huts which are partly hats and part
ly bonnets seem to bo tho most suc
cessful among tho new models for
motor wear. These hats are very
soft and many of them are nuulo en
tirely without wire. A crinoline or
rice net foundation gives sufficient
body. Wide braids and silk (the
braids almost as pliable as fabrics)
are very strong and durablo and are
used in this class of heudwear.
Tho fad for tho strong Hungarian
colors has given us somo very novel
and excellent specimons in theso mo
tor bonnets. Dodics aro usually made
in gray, taupe, brown or blue, or in
natural Btraw colors. Theso durablo
colorings aro brightened with touches
of bright rod, vivid green and strong
blue. Often a deep canary yellow ap
pears in this 'combination. Theso
Btrong colors are introduced In tho
trimming or partly in the body of the
hat. Veiled with chiffon veils of the
color of the hat, through which they
Careful Dresser Knows Well What the
Accessories Should Be to Com
plete a Costume.
In many instances it is tho little
things that count for more than those
of larger proportions, and women havo
long since realized the fact, which ac
counts for tho many furbishes which
they affect. A dainty dash hero or a
daring dash thero will frequently
make an otherwise unattractive cos
tumo most bewitching.
Corsage and muff ornaments are tho
popular accessories of the season, and
.fashion permits an almost unlimited
choice in these matters.
One of fashion's freaks Is tho use of
fruits and vegetables for corsage orna
ments. Holly berries are also seen
and aro much prettier.
Tho now corsago bouquet is a com
pact bunch of red berries.
The corsago flower should ho largo;
it may bo a rose, tho poinsetta or the
brilliant poppy. Most of theso largo
flowerB aro made of velvet. They
match some brilliant evening dress,
but as a rule they are in a contrast
ing color.
Velvet ribbon flowers are used on
the new long, round muffs. '

gleam, they aro really charming.
Hats made of fabrics usually have a
tan crown, but are sometimes made
of Tour shaped pieces, stitched to
gether. Tho brims are machine
stitched in rows ana crinollno or lin
en intorllnings provide sufficient bui
port for tho fabrics.
Veils aro managed In a variety ol
ways. One of tho prettiest Is shown
in tho illustration. It is a long veil,
but not wide. At tho front tho edge
is finished with an accordlon-plnitod
ruffle, which terminates at tho back
of tho neck. Tho veil is slightly
fulled on an clastic cord which slips
ovor tho hat and Is drawn in aboul
tho neck by gatherings.
The new motor hats seem to have
reached perfection Inasmuch as they
aro comfortable, durable, and at the
same time, the most attractivo that
havo ever been brought out. They
may bo said to be universally becom
Casement Scheme of Decoration la
One of the Neatest and Most
Serviceable Possible.
Ono of tho nentest and prettiest
ways of dressing tho window of a
room in which it is not desirablo to
havo flowing draperieB is to use tho
casement scheme of decorations. For
this purpose thero comes a specially
Bhoer and fine cotton material called
casement cloth through which the
light shines, although tho Interior of
tho room is shielded from outsido
oyes, but a similar charming effect
may bo produced by cotton voile, by
Chinese or wash silk, none of which
materials is costly. The arrangements
of tho drapery is simple. It Is shirred
scantily at both its ends upon flno
sliding rods of brass which fit into
groves at top and bottom of tho case,

schemo of window dressing is tho easo
with which the draperies may bo

New Dress Materials.
At tho outset of every season a
multitude of now materials for
gowns is thrust upon tho market, and
by gradual elimination wo Boon know
which will prove becoming and mako
up suitably. This year's fashion is
particularly specializing in several
now materials which como iu a
charming display of colors and
changeablo effects. Tho most fash
ionable material is the much-worn
brocade, and It Is sought by dress
makers for every conceivable typo of
gown from street suits to the most
elaborate evening gowns and wraps.
