CURRENTNOTES OFTHE MODES
AND HOUSEHOLD AFFAIRS.
The Now Fnll nnd Winter Itnt Aro
Mnrvclt In KfTrct Wrnpa for Mtllo

Little Lovo Song.
3 HE now hats for
tho season aro mar
vels of effect, com
erectne'ss with the
drooping effects. As
for Instance a hat
of black felt reared
up In sharp corners
about tho front and
with n flaro of
cock's feathers on guard over tho top,
bends closo to the hair at the back, and
tumbles a long spray of drooping rosea
down against tho colling locks. There
seems hope that long laco scarfs may
be used to fasten hats, so that the wom
an whoso good looks depends on tho
swathing of her neck will bo nblo to
wear a low collar without spoiling her
self. As in all seasons when fashions are
making toward a general change, oddi
ties abound, and they aro oven moro

than proportionately plentiful In the
ater hats. One of these almost startling
bits of hcadwear is pictured herewith,
and is In toquo shape, made of black
firaldcd hair. It Is trimmed with twisted
amethyst mirror velvet, which borders
tho edge and forms small rosettes In
back. Then several velvot pansjes are
placed along tho velvet. In front tho
garniture is completed by a pair of
fancy wings, with a feather ornament
rising In tho center In place of tho aig
rette with which we havo become fa
miliar. It 13 worn well back on the head
and is shaped like a wldo band, with
curved edges to fit tho head. Don't be
disturbed if the novelties In millinery
that aro presented as Louis XVI. styles
don't fit your idea of history. Just tako
them and say nothing If they suit. To
tell the truth, it is not so much that tho
actual fashions of that period are being
revived as that milllnerB have agreed
to call whatever they Invent and select
"Louis XVI.," and to make free with
the times of that particular gay court
and the fashions of beautiful Antoi
nette. Thus, hats wired stiff to stand
out on one side and droop to tho hair
on the other are a novelty, and aB such
are, of course, called Louis XVI. The
effect has so long been avoided that It
brings some lines of tho face into start
ling prominence, and whero these lines
are good ones the wearer Is distinctly
the gainer by tho effect.
Wrap for I.lttlo Glrla.
Wraps for tho llttlo ones are an Im
portant Item for this season. There are
a number of pretty fashions shown for
the comfort of these little folks, mak
ing .them look quite as smart as their
ciders. Embroidery in velvet and heavy
cut work is the general mode of trim
ming for the present, though the longer
ones, which aro to bo worn all winter,
aro heavily trimmed with fur. A stun
ning llttlo reefer of navy blue cordu
roy hns a border of Iho cut work, In
navy blue velvet, set over white satin.
Tho coat proper Is extremely short and
flaring, coming just over the hips. Tho
fronts aro cut narrow, so ns to open
broadly over tho blouso waist of the
gown, and are fastened by n velvet Btrlp
set underneath. Two largo pearl buttons
trim tho outside. A deep sailor collar
of velvet hns a border of cut work
and its edge piped with a cord of white
satin. A cord of satin finishes tho flar
ing collar, which sets up about tho cars
In so pretty a fashion. The sleeves aro
bishop in shario and very bouffant.
Gorrni for Society Huds.
Tho season for tho sprouting of tho
young society bud Is fast approaching
and mamma is anxiously contriving
all sorts of protty costumes for this
prospective blossom. It is moro difllcult
to gown a young girl becomingly, not
too childish, nor yet too womanly, than
most people imaglno who hnvo not un
dertaken tho task. Even the clever mod
istes sometimes mako tho mistake ol
fashioning a garment altogether too
dignified for a young girl, making her
look llko a fussy llttlo old woman.
When ono Is old enough to wear all
sortB of gowns and wraps tho mat
ter is smooth enough, hut for
theso fair young things a great
deal of consideration must be given to
their gowning. Ono of tho sweetest girls
who will burst upon society this winter
sports ns lovely and girlish a fall cos
tume as any girl could possibly have.
She is a llly-sklnned blonde, with eyes
as big and blue aa a cherub's, and
smoothly parted yellow hair clinging
In Boft, wavy masses over her ears. Her
gown Is gray, a soft dove gray of tho
softest sort of cheviot, showing a mixt
ure of black and white. The skirt is en
Paquin, abnormally full and stiffened
to a startling degree. The bodice is a
perfectly round ono of slate-colored vel
vet, smoothly fitted, nnd fastened diag
onally with three rows of tiny silver
buttons. A silver collar and belt add
chic to tho gown. Tho sleeves are of tho
cheviot In glgot style, tho tight lower
arm buttoned snugly with rows of sil
ver buttons. To complete It Is a street
coat of cheviot in box fashion, showing
jaunty little pockets and huge bishop
sleeves. The prettiest feature of the rJg
Is the butterfly collar of chinchilla,'
whos9 soft grayness harmonizes so ten
derly with the gray of the gown. A hugo
hat of neutral tinted felt Is facod with
black and massed with black plumes.
ATIicro Woman Utiles Her Key.
Surely woman's Ingenuity Is un
equaled. Witness tho way sho takes
care of her key at the summer hotel or
boarding-house. When a man takes up
his abode at such a placo he lugs his
keyaround with him or leaves It at the
office, and In almost any event he as
HUeJy as not loses it. But woman has
discovered a new and suro way of dls-
posing of tho nritcle. She doesn't lum
ber up her pocketB with it, neither doos
sho leavo it nt tho office and rarely, In
deed, does sho lose it. Her almost ln
varlnblo habit is to thrust It under tho
strip of matting or carpet covering tho
entry boforo her chamber door, whero
It Is supposed to reposo in peace and '
safety. This, too, notwithstanding tho
fact that tho llttlo hump It produces
in tho carpet Ib by no menus Invisible
to tho naked eye. Nor Is it without sig
nificance to tho averago understanding.
What Is moro, there Is a similar llttlo '
hump beforo each neighboring bedroom i
floor, so that n glance down tho entry
reveals a whole doublo row of such
humps. They spenk volumes of not
only tho ingenuity of woman, but of
her sublime faith In human nature.

When heart to heart a message brings,
That wakes tho soul until it sings

What Button Aro Uiril.

not be ignored; they aro appearing in

Hard nut buttons above "54" are
scarce. Four-holo buttons of this ma
terial aro In good demand. A tnsty
four-holo design is much used. It has
in tho middle a narrow polished bor

and tho outside border, which Is pol
ished In two colors.
As tho revival began hero in tho
spring it follows that pearl buttons arc
most in evidence. Tho outing suits of
woolen fabrics, pique, duck and such
cotton white suits as well all accord
with tho largo white and nhaded pearls

any of tho fashionablo mixtures.
To be suro, the sales aro limited to
three, four, six, etc., but that is an en
