THE NORTH PLATTE 8EMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE.
ARE THE COIFFURES
FOR THE EVENING
IF devotees of fashion follow tho
lead of costumers and the big de
partment stores, thoy will wear such
sorgeous nnfl conspicuous head
dresses as wo have- nover seen. It
seems, since lovely woman may no
longer wear a hat at tho theater, she
will take to coiffuro ornaments quite
as picturesque) and more unusual than
anything tho milliners havo ventured
to make in tho last century. Tho
most gorgeous gold and silver laces,
Jeweled bands, swooning feathers and
exquisite flowers are brought into
requisition to make these headpieces
Tho opera season will reveal wheth
er tho morn ambitious and imposing
of theso brilliant ornamcntB havo ap-
pealed to tho American great lady or
not. But even) if she rejects them
they will have an influence upon the
modes of tho winter in coiffure orna
ment. East India Bcems to have inspired
many of the elaborate and novel head
dresses which are being dis.plnyed in
anticipation of tho opera season. But
no matter what their source, tho new
liead-dre3ses are dazzling. Many of
them are so large they might be
classed as crownless hats. It is not
likely that these extronies of size
and gorgeousness will be generally
worn oven among the ultra fashion
able. What will come Into favor,
Latest Fur-Trimmed Millinery
TWO attractive but not unusual hats
are pfctured here, in which mllll
nory furs nro used. Neither of tho
shapos are Innovations In slzo or style,
but both aro graceful and becoming.
In tho hat with brim covered with
moleskin it Is noticeable that the fur
ti fitted to it, but on the uppor brim
tho briin-cover'ng becomes a sort of
soft sash about the base of tho crown.
This Is a novo! and Interesting man
agement of this exquisitely soft fur.
The crown of velvet matches tho
fur in color, and Is laid in' rather deop
pleats, giving a more ample fullness
than appear in most crowns. Tho vol
vet is supported by an interlining of
The fancy ostrich "stick-up" at the
sldo Is white. Many hats In this color
nre adorned with similar fancy feath
ers In tho orango and tango shades,
combined with paprika, and tho color
combination is splendid. Nearly all
colors harmonize with mole color, so
that tho fancy feather may be chosen

sample shown in the picture.
Tho broad baud Is made of gold
braid In a lattice work pattern, stud
ded with rhlnestones at tho Intersec
tions of tho braid. Similar pieces nro
made of pearl beads and any other
mock Jowol thht suits tho wearer.
Ornaments, feathors and flowers,
often add further embolllshmcnt to
coiffuro decorations of this character.
Such elaboration In ornaments pre
supposes moro olaborato coiffures
also. Thcro is no limit to latitude in

as a result of this exploitation of ex
tromo ldbas, will bo a general) use of
decorations for the hoad, othjr than
hats, for evening wear.
Elderly Lady's Wrap.
Supplementing the really warm
wrap whlcn tho elderly lady leaves in
her limousine whon entering the opera
house oi" a theater, Is a transparent af
fair said to be for tho purpose of
warding off vagrant draughts' from
her shoulders, but actually designed
to conceal her flguro. This wrap, In
gold or Bllvor-strlped black or white
gauze, In plain mallnos or in chiffon,
is unllned and easily mado, for it is
simply a throe-yard length of tho very
wldo material now in general use.
At each end it is gathered into wrist
bands concealod by frilllngs and about
tho center of tho back, all of the full
ness is gathered Into tho edges of a
four-Inch dlamotor circle of tho same
material., When worn, tho gauze, ma
lines or' chiffon falls in soft folds
about the bust and hips and vails,
whl! it does not actually hide tho
bare shoulders and arms.
An essential point of the evening
ninntle, and one which tho daytime
coat shares, Is the wrap effect which
brings with It plenty of possibilities
for the use of rare and lovely clasps
The three-quarter length Is advised
on account of its lightness of weight
and because It docs not tend to crush
a very fragile frock nor to hide it
One mado for a bride whoso pro
clivities are artistic was carriod out
in tho most splendid dull deep orange
brocaded upon dark garnet velvet and
trimmed with black fox flecked with
whito in great tufts, uncommon and
remarkably handsome In appearance.
Suspenders With Skirts.
An Interesting novelty is the sus
pender made similar to men's sus
penders Those of black velvet, fin
ished with gorgeous buckles, are par
ticularly striking. TheBo suspenders
are dressy rather than tailored In ef
fect, and are especially appropriate
to wear with tho new black separate
skirts and fancy lace blouses.
to suit tho preference of tho wearer.
That shown In tho picture Is typical
of (ho season. Theso stick-ups look
fragilo, and aro strong. The ribs of
natural feathers aro used for Bteras,
surmounted with their natlvo flues or
A band of whito fur and an ostrich
plume in white trim tho graceful black
velvot hat which appears In tho other

in this model merely a lined puff of
velvet. A broad French plume, with
quill end thrust through tho brim, Is
quite modest as to height, compared
with extremes which havo becpnio pop

neckpiece of marabout and ostrich,
showing strips In white, white and
black and all black, making a wide
scarf that Is very dressy and very
comfortable. Although tho down of
marabout looks so airy, It seems al
most to generato warmth and looks as
cozy as it feels.

"I didn't: I thought you were a

give her a chair.
"Excuso me, MIbs Curtis, please."
ho apologized. "I was puzzled for a

Is tho chair comfortable?"
Chloe affirmed that all was to her

pencil in a most businesslike manner
and awaited orders, but tho professor
could see that she was regarding him
curiously from tho corner of her oyo
as though sho thought him a very

"If you aro ready, wo will begin,"

"Oh, I see!"

Miss Chloe, thero's your warning!"
"Perhaps the plants that havo tried

Curtis, calmly. "Do you suppose that

Tho startled professor gazed at her
suspiciously. Hor faco was vory bland,
very demure, but tho twinkle In her

her. Ho knew sho was working hard

Ho roso and paced tho study, filled
