NEW YORK. March 3. The brlskrot sort
of trading has been carried on Ji-at now In
ratrlch feathers , ciul unless there Is a 'all-
tire of slgna all along the line , this will be
a eeafion distinguished for the length and
number , the rich quality a d nno color of the
plumes worn. Children and grown-ups nllko
will share three truly beautiful head orna
ments , that arc not HO expetwlvo as they
imlght he. Our own ostrich farms lii the
wrot send excellent feathers to the milli
ners , who o-e u < lng them to replace the stiff
wlngd and the blrd .
Wide hats of the softest straw arc fairly
draped with the lovely plumage , accom
panied usually by a few roaca by way of
mart color. The brims arc looped or crushed
back cti ono aide and a soft arc of feathers ,
epringlng from a Jeweled ornament , placed
well In front , sweeps against the hair well
to the rear In frlngy mamas , to drop almoat
to the shoulder behind.
The most bewitching garden party and
carriage hats , of chip and leghorn , In white
and black , are exhibited , their brims left to
fall ! ii wide flutes about the face , big wired
bows of lace erected In front and three white
or black plumes , of amazing height , ( lowing
back on either ode ! the low crown , to let
their curling ends fall out like streamers
In the rear. Ilcaldtfl the ostrich plumes a
great mcny quills end coiue feathers are
doing active service. One ami all these
are wide and stiff , curved and cut to resem
ble miniature scimitars , dyed In rich dark
colors and closely powdered with large and
email dull gold , green , red or blue spangles.
A couple of these , springing from a high
tight l. iot of nllk set on the top sltlo of a
etraw crown , have a very smavt effect In
Tti ! te nothing new. but It must needs be
recorded that a deal of tulle Is appearing ,
cast aa a tort of cloudy veil , over the crowns
of hats close piled with flowers. Last year
this was ono experiment that found favor.
It Is worth making n note that all trim
mings of ribbons or piece silk arc twisted ,
never folded , about brims mid crowns. All
trimming , and there Is positively no excep
tion to this rule , springs up at the owe ,
Just as high as ever wo please to make It.
Jeweled oinaments are used with caution ,
though there la a striking display of heavily
Jeweled crown btnils , and In place of lace
hats. In black , white and all colors , chiffon
flats nr to be features of the esaaon. The
chiffon Is very elaborately puffed and shirred
en to wire frames , anil quite as often as not
the tack , as well as the side brim of a hat ,
is turned up sharply and a broad comb of
umall blossoms set there.
Last spring the weavers of hats obliged us
to almost doubt the pvldence of our aensos.
Into such fantastic , Incongruous shapes did
they distort the straw crowns. This year tuo
crown has returned to Its normal state , but
the brims of all straw thlngn have gene on a
mad race after originality of form. Sane of
them have largo plo-shapcd pieces cut out at
intervals , and the gaps filled with tucked
or gaidcrcd chiffon ; others curve In or bow
out In deep scallops. Co ono side of many
hat i three sections of brim afe net and spread
apart to contain a filling of stemless flowers ,
between the straw tips. Still moro astound-
ln are the windmill brims , made of wedge-
shaped pieces of straw so set about the
crown. oa to assume the aspect of stiff leaves
toaed'In every direction.
Now that wo get nearer and nearer to gen
uine springtide , nothing U mcro clearly up-
varent than that the blouse front Is about to
ehrlnk into a perfectly straight line from busl
to walot. Every woman with a full flguro Is
rejoicing accordingly , and adopting the flat
flt In front , while the slender ones cling tea
a fullness that must be without aoy pouched
or dropped aspect.
Skirts are lltemlly still torn between con
flicting dressmakers and preferences. It la
beyond dispute tfiat wash gowns must be
made with ono largo Spanish flounce , and
this In turn bo flounced with narrow trills or
trlped with ribbon or fretted with embroid
ery to any woman's taste ; but the tailors
cry "Vivo la boll skirt. " Literally A bell-
shaped petticoat and onto these cloth petti
coats they pray permission to stitch bands of
tirlght atlo or silk , or act flno tucks , or
wrinkle the goods with cording or , latest of
faahlctis , cut out of cloth large arabesques
and etltch these on to cloth. The aspect thus
gained la of cloth richly and fancifully em-
bosaed In its own color , or ono may have this
me thing done In two gently contrasting
colors *
While the tailor * tabor for the election of
the ball skirt to supreme fashionable emi
nence , the modistes are working like beavers
lor the prlnccsi shape , and between these
rival factions there Is c amount of variety
In dressmaking we have not known In a num
ber of years. All the \\dlle trains are crawlIng -
Ing out In the rear ami haircloth Is creeping
up our back * . The haircloth does depend
though on the prejudices of the modiste
patronized , for a. goodly proportion art * advo
cating the veiy new French method of mak
ing the skirts unusually long all around , sep
arating lining and gooda and facing the
/former / up only a depth of four Inches with
any stiffening ? Dy this mo ns all the skirt's
fullness falla In limply nt the feet and the
rctuilt Is an aesthetic appearance at the cost
of comfort. The rival faction believes that a
train must alopo out grandly , In organ-llko
folds from the waist down. So there we all
re paying cur money end taking our cholco
and In cccisequence the women this season
do not look like so many pcua from the same
Whllo on the subject of gowns. It U as
well to announce tint wool and silk crepons
are coming back to use , that pecan suiting
is ono of the good light-weight twilled wools
tor summer wear , and that In the way of
cotton things , distinctly for outing wear ,
there U a wide range of subjects. Linen
poplin In blue and whlto checks Is one of the
materials far and away 'better ' than the
highly lauded galatea , and then fop glowing
color French duck Is to be cordially recom
mended. This la a duck of quite lightweight
-weight , and It comes this season In poppy
red , prioress blue and rather overwhelming
purples. U trlma up , however , very smartly
with a flat braid , quite like a heavy tape ,
nd for the seaside It will bo widely adopted.
Nearly all the new taffetas for dress pur
poses have their flower patterns outlined
with a pretty brocaded edging , but on the
-whole few taffetas will be used thla spring
ave for foundation purposes.
Thla is because there Is a perfect horde
of tempting transparent dress materials to
elect from , In tender shades of green.and
browri.'gray and mauve. They are all mix
ture * of silk and wool , and the exceptions
; prove MieCrule Iff favor of "bayaderestripes. " .
Many tissue-like materials , woven wholly of
Ilk , and striped with lace like bands , all
one In weave , are finely tucked In the inanu-
factur ; * Just as the latest lawns are most
artistically decorated with miniature studies
of fruit clusters and bear in the whlto spices
of the gooda a pattern embroidered In whlto
broad In the tambour stitch.
All the whllo women are strutting about
happily , and much resembling pouter pig-
eoni , with their .big- lace , muslin or satin
Ja'bots under their chins , and every mother's
daughter of them wears either a chain or
p rkllng belt or iboth. The chain now popu
larly supports beside the minute gold or sil
ver mean purse a crjatal ball watch , a screw
ipencll and a tiny click of perfumed white
I crease , with which to pass ever the lips.
The whole stick Is no larger than a screw
I null pencil , and like a pencil It screws up
I and down In a silver or gold cylinder.
Another fashionable neck splendor la niarto
I of five flno black ollk corJa running through
| * many aa eighteen cut steel slides. The
[ ( lldM flt on the cords at Intervals of an Inch ,
I and this bright trinket encircles the neck
[ and hangs a little below the wain Hue. The
I belt'referred to are the truly nrw things for
I thirlwalit and gingham wear , just so aooa
as uo shuffle off this sombre cell of winter
garments. Black , white , green , In fact any
color and quality of leather , from the most
supple suede to the toughest pigskin or
patent leather , Is quite available for the mod
ern rage for "bejewellng " everything. The
metal belts with their cabochon gems are
ever to the fore , tout Inbettor taste , with
cotton gowns , will be tbo leather straps
studded with steel , gun metal , or silver tiall
heads , largo nnd small ,
There Is a deal of importance involved at
this moment In the decoration , not to say
cut , of one's sleeves. A half dozen typical
examples of what Is very up-to-date are
sketched In the wheel , and deserve a word
of description. No. 1 Is a pattern sanctioned
by the highest authorities , and represents a
allng top In Its shoulder drapery. From
wrist up this neat arm Lag Is closely corded ,
and that U a nice , now Idea , too , white the
cuff of light satin. Is bell-shaped. For cloth
suits nearly all the cuffs are shaped so , a
tasteful selection , and the Interior of the bell
1.1 usually lined with whatever bright color
the owner of the sleeve uses elsewhere on
her suit. No. 2' Is a transparent sleeve of
silk muslin , treated with a spiral ruflle ,
edged with dark baby velvet ribbon , and ono
of the novelties frequently adopted with such
evening sleeves Is the sewing of a row of
tiny bright Jeweled 'buttons right around the
wrist. Occasionally the same scheme Is re
peated In an arc of larger buttons across the
top of the shoulder , or quite as quaint an
Idea Is that of tying about the wearer's
wrists , close to the hand , a narrow ribbon ,
and knotting It In eo full a 'bow ' that the
pretty bracelet gives the appearance of a
bright flower set among the falling laces.
The fourth In the wheel Is for a house
gown. The shape Is modified bishop , a
spangled pattern Is worked on the dark satin ,
and a. clceo cuff of lice buttons snugly Just
above the hand. Close to this easy dress
for the arm Is one of the smartest methods
for finishing the shoulder of a ball gown.
Double rowe of pearls cross the shoulder
upon a vandyked band of embroidered satin ,
whllo lower on the arm the tulle ruflles prink
out bright In spangled spots and divided by
a spangled bar ; all meant to lend a markedly
"butterfly " effect.
In nddltlc/n to the sleeves , the five now
gowns pictured deserve especial mention ,
passing as they do through the range of
favorite spring materials , in which women
are at the Inotant generously Investing. The
fltst figure represents a way to treat a ging
ham of the fashionable new plaid and check
mixture. Three narrow frills stand at the
top and bottom of the deep Spanish flounce ,
and the waist's front opens In a V to dis
play a vest of whlto embroidery. Narrow
frills edge the vest. Shirrlngs supply all
necessary decoration tt > the sleeved , while a
glrdlo and 'bow.of iblack satin ribbon give a
completingtouch. .
A heliotrope vlgoguo Is the material of
Hin second suit , the skirt made In a tailor's
bell shape , the body of a long skirted coat ,
with the blouse front only hinted at. Cream
cloth , embroidered ! ia black and heliotrope ,
faces the rovers , the small vest forms the
hish collar and the cuffs. Cut steel and
cabochon amethyst buttons further decorate
the coat , that la belted by a band of the
light cloth , from which four sash ends fall
upon ono hip. the esshea made of the cream
cloth , embroidered In heliotrope. A dark
green rough straw hat worn with this suit
Is trimmed only with an arrangement of
gull wings lii front and a comb of violets
! n the rear.
Figured satin striped challle , in reseda
green and black , Is the charming combina
tion for the thirdcostume. . A waistcoat of
folded black taffffeta chlnols swathes the
body under the boleros , edged with narrow
black ribbon , but leaves a space open at
the top to All In with a vest of plaited white
chiffon. The hat with this Is a satin straw ,
woven In green aud white , and piled high
with cnowy dogwood flowers.
Of the two rear gowns the first Is especially
remarkable In representing the use of one
material in two sharply contrasting colors.
The upper halt of the skirt la turquoise blue
French satin cloth , the lower half of the
same goods In a ehade of Mediterranean blue.
Upon the lower halt are applied elaborately
cut flowers of light blue cloth , and this
same nuoeuver Is repeated on the sleeves.
Turquoise blue cloth forms the straight and
folded sides of the body that opens over a
tiny vest of white silk overlaid with guipure
lace , and the folded side Is held fast by five
elaborate1 gunmetal orjiaments , decorated
wltb mock turquolsea and sapphires. The
last gown In the series Is a sturdy brown
cashmere , treated with flat applications of
dull green silk stitched on , the shoulders
having puffed epulottes of silk.
From the grown-ups to the children Is
to turn from elaboration to sweet simplicity ,
for the me- little girt In the sketch wears
a tidy little gown of dark red challle , picked
out In black polka dots , and topped with a
tucked yoke of white nalnoook , edged with
embroidered frills. The boy bealdo her Is
In finely checked blue linen , and his little
belted lUicn blouse has an embroidered col
lar , over which rolls a second set of white
linen revere. The owner of the nursery
Pegasus .Is In tbe appropriate riding suit for
a child In spring. A dual brown whipcord
coat , with silver buttons , striped red and
whlto duck breeches , brown whipcord leg-
gingo and plgaklo shoes. M. DAVIS.
New mill Profitablennsliiemi far
Suburliuu Women.
The suburban woman has hit upon a new
and pleasant method of adding to her store
of pocket money. Thla Is by means of the
mint farm an irtpft which nric'oated ' ! ii Nnvv
Orleans , nnd has spread rapidly to northern
and western cities.
"A woman of my acquaintance recently
started a mint farm near Flushing , L. I. , "
said Manager Iloldt of tbo Waldorf-Astoria
hotel , New York , "and elio has made of it a
really remarkable success. All the chief
hotels and restaurants of New York ; and
n rook ! j n are on her list of customers ; and ,
whllo the growing of her mint interferes
but very slightly with ordinary household
duties , Us sale proven highly profitable. Of
counso her principal trade is during the
flumrncr months. Then oho does a rushing
business. Last acascn moot of the big hotels
bought each from $2.00 to $3.25 worth of
mint every day from her farm. So much
money did eho clear that eho was enabled
to live In luxury all through the cold weather
besides laying by a comfortable sum for
rainy days.
"The mint farm Is carefully cultivated.
AH runners are removed and each eprlg
groua erect. For about $5 , or even lees ,
enough plants of the Bpearmrint ( botanical
name nuntlm vlrldle ) may be obtained from
any nurseryman to start a fair sized mint
bed. The soil should be somewhat sandy ,
and. In the northern atatM , It Is well to
cbooBc a spot protected from the wind and
with as much sunlight as passible. Mint
needs plenty of aui. Deycnd keeping It
free from runners and weeds tbo mint bed
calla for little attention.
"A light wagon which can make the rounds
of the hotels and restaurants early each
morning Is all that is necessary for the dl > i-
trtbutlcu of the aromatic plant. II la possi
ble , also , to grow the peppermint , or rnentha
plperltn , with profit. Two unmarried women
of Philadelphia arc making money Just at
nrpRfint liv Rotllni ? nntmi rmlnt tn thp whnlp.
sale druggists , who manufacture from it
carminatives , aromatlcs and etimulmts of
different sorts.
"A Now Orleans woman who po3.scsseJ a
farm near the fair grounds was , I am told ,
the pioneer mint-cultivator of her sex. The :
pursuit Is by no meana a crowded one and .
there are enough hotels and cafca In greater
New York alone to keep several mint farms
going. "

Conspicuous among eUborato trousseaus
and pretty wardrobes recently brought over
from Paris Is a most beautiful assortment
of aprons. These articles do luxo are made
for tbo most part ot tbo richest materials ,
satin and silk for morning wear , and for
later In the day embroidered lawn or mous- :
sollne do solo. As tn the case with the dresa
this season , these tabllers de toilette are
extremely elaborate.
For matrons they are made with a Jeweled
band , with braces to correspond , and epiu-
lottes of laco. For debutantes the pattern '
resembles moro closely the housemaid's
apron , In eo far as there Is a distinct upper
portion covering a small part of the .
front of the bodice. Tie idea which finds
most favor Is to have them made of exactly >
the same coloring aa the drcsa with which ;
they are worn , or clso In a violently contrast
ing shade.
A very charming Parisian novelty recently i
worn by a matron was made In rich black :
eatln , lined with pearl gray satin , the exact
shade of the gray cashmere dress over which
It was worn. The apron , which reached to
the hem of the skirt , was very wide at the
bottom and gradually rounded until It
reached the hip. The trlmmlns of tucks
and cream Insertion on the costume was' re
produced on the apron , which was finished
by a flounce ot cream lace , fastened off on
cither sldo of the waist with large Jeweled
buttons. These buttons correspond with a
SwUa belt of Jeweled trimming.
Another of these elegant trilles worn by a
young woman was In turquoise blue mous-
flelluo do solo over a dress of cream
mere. ' This apron was square at the tloot.
and the trimming consisted solely of a deep
flmmnn nf nlaltnrf tnnliainltnn fin Rn\c \ * spt Intn
a ruche of soft cream laco. A bertha of
folds of the blue muslin was arranged in a
heart shape , so that the elaborate bodice of
the dress formed a kind of vest.
The waistband was formed of cream-col
ored insertion over blue and studded with
turquoise , and at the sides a pointed cas
cade of lace , not sewn on to the apron , but
held In place by a largo turquoise cabochon ,
fell almost to the hem of the skirt ,
Any young girl who Is clever with her
needle and has only a small allowance to
work with should direct her attention to art
muslins , which arc very Inexpensive. The
exquisite colorings of these pretty and cheap
materials are In themselves an artistic aid
to any dress. Pale yellow , made with a deep
flounce edged with black insertion and set
Into a waistband of black satin , the cascade
of lace being replaced by a fold of the mus
lin , with a Jet or steel button In place of
the Jeweled cabochon , makes a very pretty

enerally known.
One exhibition , known as the "Living
Costers , " netted a society of young women
very handsome profit. They first made a
ollectlon of scnio of the moro common plc-
uras which cover so many of the adverthtaK
uses of the leading monthlies. Many of
fieso pictures are known everywhere. The

voman who greets the new morn with an
nqulry as to soap ; the atom gentleman who

lefiiltcly. There are at least 100 advertising
ilctures or posters that nine out of ten per-
ons will recognize at sight.
Having made- HU of all the pictures that

lutllned their scheme to them.

from the Ladles' Home Journal , and enclose.
"Our plan 1s to take the handsomest girl
Inthis town and have her pose In exact
Imitation of your poster. She will be a

other firms whoso posters ore sufficiently

The plan worked much better than was
expected and the only mistake was the
contribution asked. Ono flrm said that
they regarded such an advertisement worth
as much as a page in the average maga
zine. Others offered to supply the women
with various draperies and accessories and
all , of them treated the suggestion
courteously. I
For a number of the posters a large frame
was erected as a sort of border to the liv

various tableaux and poses waa not very
The audience received the various pictures
with great enthusiasm. The novelty of
guessing each advertisement , nnd of won
dering what the next would bo gave the
exhibition an element of excitement. While
the next picture was being arranged small
boys distributed samples and printed mat
ter , and this , too , was received with much
favor. Everybody likes to get something
for nothing and every person got the equiva
lent of their ticket of admission in samples.
The next day the papers spoke highly of
the exhibition and Itwas repeated to a
largo crowd. The women netted the very
handsome sum of $000 for their labor and
had all their fun besides.
