NEW TORK, April 25. A flannel that
wilt not shrink and a mohair with a thread
of pur wool la It ar Inventions that prom
la to make for (he happiness of the women
who relish their salt sea baths. Two
months ago the novelties In bathing suits
were sold to the happf few who seek the
Florida beaches and the West India Islands
In the depths of our winter, and the non
hrlnkable flannel and the wool warp mo
hair were pronounced worthy of a long
period of watery usefulness. The Im
proved flannel does not thicken or shrink
after prolonged wear, the mohair Is given
snore body by virtue of a heavier thread
Only a few, women patronize the bathing
corset department, where really eecstble
little stays of heavy net, stiffened merely
with cordinga, are made for those whose
figures do not otherwise display to advan
tage In the easy-going swimming suits.
In the true seaside, yachting and plain
boating dresses the struggle this spring Is
between wool and linen. Cotton beach and
deck suite have been weighed In the bal
ance and found wanting, and the oddest
compromises are now seen of wool suits
trimmed with linen and linen skirts and
waists weighted with wool bands, collars,
cuffs, etc. The most sumptuous thing In
yachting toilet Is a colored linen encrusted
with very stout guipure or Russian lace,
under which the goods Is cut away to show
A NET ROBE WITH LACK ENCRUSTATIONS.
and the shoppers for bathing suit ask with
rare exceptlona for white and silver gray
swimming costumes only.
White suits, garnished with braid, or
atitched bands, or .facings of a clear, cheer
ful color, promise to predominate on the
sands this summer, though there are a few
expert floaters and paddlers who ask for
all white beach gowns, and there Is always
the wise and temperate stout woman who
clings to black and dark blue. Given a
white flannel or alpaca, the rule Is to round
.the blouse of It out flat about the neck with
a square sailor, or long dresa coat collar.
A sailor's vest fits into the V In front and
a floating scarf of gay, washable silk knots
In a four-in-hand on the bust.'
The Dominant Collar.
Very, much stress la laid on the collar's
shape and a most surprising amount of
variation la expended on Its decoration.
There are abawl collars that roll back over
the ahouldera with straight-edged or
notched revere tapering as far as the waist
line; short, shaped collar and double sail
or. Some of them are braided In patterns,
som are bound with a color and speckled
with French knots on the broad binding,
ome have gay applications of elaborate
colored silk, or flannel, or linen flowers,
and some show stitched straps further set
off by groups of tiny pearl buttons.
Whatever may be the decoration of the
collar its form and color are the motifs
used In repetition on the belt and dress
hem, and, while all collars are flat, no
'pretty or fashionable suits are ever cut
jnore open in the neck than Is in accord
ance with th custom followed by profes
sional sailor. 81eeve are shorter than
ever. A puff or broad band covering just
(ho top of the arm Is the requisite of
fashion, and the blouse pouch and bag
more generously than ever. A woman who
know how to set her figure off to advan
tage In th water will never economise in
th material of her bathing suit. A wide
collar and a full shirt Increase the sllmness
of waist and hip and the one fault to be
found with the model of beach dresses
shown tor this season 1 th scanty hip
measure allowed them. A corseted figure

Number of women . who take their
fashions with a pinch of salt are ordering
their bathing sklrta made with three pleat
folded toward the central rear seam of the
skirt and th placket hole open a little
to th left aid la froat Others pleat th
klrt all around In fold deep enough to
throw the fullness of a flounce In at the
bottom. Such pleat ar stitched down
flat and the proper way of achieving this
result Is shown In a sketch of two white
flannel and one silver gray mohair suit.
Silver gray, by th way, 1 by no means
a poor choice for a bathing suit when
touches of sea green ar Introduced In th
decoration or warm coral red 1 worn
Cay Water Kerealefs.
Th scarlet, whit, navy blue and bright
plaid handkerchiefs will be worn aa usual
over the oiled silk cap as hair protectors,
and the proper bathing etocklng I black,
with what ar called triple feet, to protect
tender aolee and toe from rough stone.
Th best bathing boa ar wem with sup
porter that ar fastened to the belt of the
blouse and An tab in loops that catch about
buttona ia th stocking top. A few, but
white linen beneath. A hat of colored linen
qulto overlaid with lace and bearing big
whlto or gray wings Is a chosen accompani
ment to this.
The bond of union between wool and
linen is clearly set forth In the sketch of
an Ideal boating suit In sapphire blue Trou
vllle serge; a lightweight, springy and al
most dustproof goods. Strap of turquoise
blue linen are stitched on aklrt and waist,
and a little chemisette and scarf of liaen,
in the same tint.. Oil In the open space left
by the broad rolling collars. The remain
der of this simple scheme of decoration is
carried out In fiat dots embroidered on In
turnuas. blue linen thread, and a hat
of fetltcbad 'blue linen, with a pair of dark
blue wing, Ogives the reasonable final o-a
quite perfect costume.
Net robes treated with the Inevitable
lace encrustations, or trails of applied silk
figures braided down on the transparent
web, are called Homburg robes, or spa cos
tumes, because there la a tradition that
they were first worn at those gay health
resorts of Germany and Swltserland. Over
here we give them no special name, but no
woman feels she can clearly read her title
as a fashionable woman unleas she owns
one of these confections. If she is an eco
nomical woman she buy a point esprit
robe threaded with applications of imita
tion Irish lace or -point de Venice; if she
enjoys a long purse she buys a complete
robe of wbnt Is called lac net and on this
appear applications of silken flower, Brus
sels lace, real Valenciennes flounces at the
toot and motifs of the richest guipure laid
on wherever a space or opportunity offer.
To tell the truth, we wear too much lac,
and the rich women are to blame. They
like to have their gowns of solid duchess,
ruffled with mechlln and overlaid with th
most costly Florentine Renaissance, and
though the result ia rich in the extreme, it
Is not artistic at all.
A ftnmmrr Dinner Drese.
Another vulgarity of fashion la the spang
ling Of real lace, and all the lace Inlaid
silk muslin ar beepangled like the heav
en on a clear night. On of the chaster
sorts of lace garnished robe is sketched
to show the form of the most modish pos
sible summer dinner dress. This I a pearl
gray point esprit woven with tiny black
dots and dropped on an under slip of rosy
lilac. Very delicate tendrils of Imitation
chantilly are applied with big convention
alised Bilk passion flower. Lilac chiffon
flounce, edged with black baby velvet rib
bon, fluff- at the toot. Among th dainty
Inventions for the glorification of an even
ing toilet ar the boa, shoulder knots, etc,
made of chiffon rose. Trail of these deli
cately lovely flower ar appearing on the
gown of th spring debutante and all th
young girls take a lively satisfaction in tb
big Liberty satin ribbon rose that ar
mad for th hair. Green; blue, red, white
and yellow roses ar all mad of ribbon
loops, aad oo such blossom nestled In th
low-pinned folds of hair ia esteemed an
adequate and becoming ornament.
THE PRESIDENT OVERRULED.
Miss Roosevelt Had Her Own Notions
of a Fashionable Hat.

great dread of the pais

the most critical period
of her life. Becoming
a mother should be a source of Joy to all, but the suffering and
danger incHnnt to the ordeal makes its anticipation drs of misery
Mother' Friend is the only remedy which relieves women of the grea
pain and danger of maternity; this hour which is dreaded as woman'i
severest trial is not only made painless, but all the danger is avoided
by its use. Those who use this remedy are no longer despondent or
gloomy; nervousness, nausea and other distressing conditions are
overcome, the system is made ready fot the coming event, and the
serious accidents so common to the critics,!

graph that the charming young girl had
none to bestow, her latest likeness dating
back to her eleventh year. In this she
shared the reticence of Mrs. Roosevelt, who
for years steadfastly 'refused to have her
picture published. Mr. Roosevelt, when
assistant secretary of the navy, was asked
to furnish his wife's photograph. "If I
should," he replied, "Mrs, Roosevelt would
consider my act Just ground for divorce."
Later In his career he convinced her that
the public and popular rights In the matter
and she complied with the demand. But
Miss Roosevelt kept away from the photog
rapher. When, however, the president's daughter
began to receive national and even Inter
national attention, and all of the most gra
cious character, publishers eager for her
photograph were not to be dented. Snap
shot methods, witbin wrecking distance or
strenuous objection, were not to be dared,
but an alert artist found opportunity to
make a hurried sketch. A copy of thle,
with due compliments, regards and apolo
gies, was aubmitted to the president, to
gether with an Intimation that though the
outline failed to do Justice to his daughter.
It would be reproduced unless he should
consent to furnish her photograph.
Miss Alice was summoned to the family
council. "Why." she exclaimed, "that hor
rid artist has sketched a bat several years
out of date."
"But, Alice," came the protest, "is not
the face a fair likeness?"
"Perhaps." she replied, "but, papa, yon
know you never compelled me to wear an
ancient hat. That picture," she added with
emphasis, "must not be published."
"Is It really so important?" pleaded the
"I should think, papa," responded Miss
Roosevelt, naively, "that you would be the
last to question the utility of the proper
hat In one's career."
Her remark was greeted with unbounded
merriment. Within a few minutes the car
riage had been ordered and In It Miss
Roosevelt was whirled away to the studio
of a fashionable photographer.

ME AXD WOMEN IX DENTAL CHAIR
Latter Show Greater Ability to Endure
Pain Without Flinching.
Dentist have an excellent opportunity for
observing the varying distinctive actions of
men and women while endurng the Intense
pain usually accompanying dental surgery
and they are authority for the statement
that men are "natural born cowards" when
it comes to facing an operation which tbey
know will set their nerves to Jumping and
cause them much physical suffering.
A woman will sit for hours and allow a
dentist to gouge and prod her gums with
any number of sharp steel Instruments that
he chooses to use, without whimpering, and
if the operation Is not completed sbs will
come back the next day and have the pain
ful ordeal repeated. But a man! Not so
with him. He may show up for the first
day' treatment, but the chances are that
on the second day his appointment will re
main, unkept. He hasn't the necessary
nerve, and. inclination to subject himself to
another siege of torture, - and so he gives
the dentist' office a wide berth. - v.

A Chicago dentist has observed the dis
tinctive characteristics of men and women
who occupy his chair from day to day and
has gathered some Interesting facts. "The
actions of a man In my chair are as differ
ent from those of a woman as day Is from
night," he said to a Chicago Tribune re
porter. "In the first place a woman will
present herself at the appointed time,
trembling perhaps, but determined to see It
through, no matter how great the pain may
be. 8he gets Into the chair, settle back
against the head-rest, and, though she may
flinch when the nerves are aggravated, she
will not Utter on word of complaint.-
"A man comes In maintaining a bluster
ing, bravado attitude and gets into tbe
chair with so much apparent resignation
and determination that it you never had
seen a man in a dentist's office before, you
would declare he was woman' superior in
point of bravery at every point. But Just
wait. The minute you begin to hurt him
you hear something, and this something
depends, upon the religious tendencies of
the particular man. If he is profane he
swears, and if he Js not given to profanity
he uses language so close to a violation of
moral law that it is rather hard to draw
a distinguishing line.
"Th woman will go through the first op

la more, she will keep her word. But a
man will go away gnashing his teeth, and
the chances are you won't see -him again
for a week. You have to use all sorts of
means to get him back. The fact of the
matter Is he hasn't the courage to undergo
a repetition of the pain to which he has
"There is another great difference be
tween men and women which involves per
sonal pride. If a woman has bad teeth she
wants them treated in the best possible
way, no matter how much physical suffer

day and subject herself to any sort of treat-

ment in order to have a crooked tooth
straightened or some other natural defect
remedied. This, of course. Is largely a
matter of pride, but a man won't do It. He
wants good work, certainly, but he wants
It done in the least painful manner, and
lan't so particular about hie personal ap
pearance that he is willing to endure 'tor
ture' to bring about the result. In Justice
to the men It must be said that in casas
of audden shock they have more nerve than
women. This is evident in the pulling of
a tooth. A man stands this ordeal better
than a woman, but where endurance enters
Into the operation he is not her equal in
point of nerve. In any respect."

Governor Odell of New York has Just
signed a bill which provides that a mar

woman sued a street railway company on
account of injuries sustained. The courts
decided that she could not recover In such
a case, because, according to an old law

the servant of her husband and was not
entitled to her own wages. Mrs. Utile

In the vast retail establishments of large cities, many tromen are
employed as saleswomen.
Men formerly held the positions that women now hold, and while
women's organism is Iors strong than men's, they are expected to do the
same work. Their duties compel them to bo on their feet from morning
to night, and many of them, in a short time, contraot those distressing
complaints called "female diseases."
Then occur irregularities, suppressed or painful menstruation,
weakness, indigestion, loucorrhoea, general debility, and nervous pros
tration. They are beset with such symptoms as dizziness, faintness, laasi
tude, excitability, irritability, nervousness, sleeplessness, melancholy,
"all-gone " and " want-to-bo-lcft-alone " feelings, blues, and hopelessness.
In such cases there is one tried and true remedy. Lydla K. Pink
