FANCY SILKS TO BE MUCH WORN
Retailers Have Taken Urge S applies
from Recent Bis East
There la llttto doubt now that sllka are
to be extenalvely worn thla fall and winter.
Retailers are taking large, supplies, while
tha wholesale house have been compelled
to replenish stocks in a number of In
stances. The aale of over 4,600 pieces of
black, colored and fancy silks in New Tork
last week at auction was another illustra
tion of the popularity of silks, aa the entire
offering was very quickly taken up. Re
tail buyers bid against wholesalers for the
goods offered and aa a rule got the lots
they wanted. Taney silks are becoming
more and more popular, especially In Per
sian printings on satin grounds, cloth stripes
In dark autumn ahadca, also In serge
weaves. Jacquard weavea In coin spots, and
self-colors. Ottoman weavea are alao prime
favorites with the garment manufacturers
for separate coats, and in all department
stores. Black and colored chiffon taf
fetas are twlng called for in larger quan
tities by retallera, alao satins, satin crepes,
messallnes, and other llnee of a similar
character. Prlcea still show an upward
tendency, due to the steady advance In
raw silk prlcea. Silks are very fashionable
in Europe and the roilla there have been
taking larger supplies of raw material
than usual. In many Instances American
manufacturer have had to bid against
foreign manufacturer, for supplies of raw
NEW FASHIONSJN ' MANNERS
Winter Bellas Mast Be Sonlfnl, Pos
ing; Girls with Clasped '
There are fashions in manners aa well
aa in clothes, and thoae delicate beings who
catch the vibrations of conduct from the
higher ether aa carefully as the wireless
telegraph operator reada his message have
Intimated that the era of the vigorous, rol
licking girl haa passed.
The belle of this winter must be a soul
ful, posing girl, who can sit for an entire
evening with her hands lightly clasped in
her lap, and who moves only her lips in
speaking, not using eyebrows, shoulders
and hands. Several girls are working hard
to acquire repose, paradoxical aa that
aounds. With repose of manner haa come
study of how to make the eyes expressive.
A girl who baa millions, but not groat
good looks, and who will bow in New
Tork thla winter, brought an instructor
from London Just to teach her to us her
eyes and how to acquire the latest gait,
an undulating kind of glide.
MORE SIMPLE HAIR DRESSING
English and French Dictator Have
Decided on a Common
The English and French hair dressers
have decided on a common style of hair
dressing. There Is little marcelling and
few puffa worn by the smart women in
London and Paris. They are returning to
the wide full bandeaux worn at either side
of the head. The ears are well hidden
under the new bandeaux. , Most of the
women wave the hair fancifully and ele
gantly over the forehead. They dreBs tho
back low in a chignon arranged near the
center of the head. A new Idea is to have
a narrow velvet ribbon In blue or pink or
green laced through the hair and tied
Just baokr of the left ear.
World's Tennis Champio. .
Miss May Button of California, who, for
the second time In her brief life has cap
tured the championship of the world at
lawn tennis, owns what la probably the
most valuable collection of championship
trophies in existence.
The most prominent prise, says Harper'
Weekly, is the tall gold vase. This cup,
donated by the Marquess of Bute, Is val
ued at 1500. It has been the subject of
the keenest strife during ten years, and it
waa not until Mlas May Sutton captured
It three times In auccession that it finally
found an owner. Th most desirable prise
Is the Wimbledon championship trophy,
won at the last International contest.
This may be recognised by the handsome
pedestal of ebony with silver markings
in the center of the picture.
Another Interesting prise around which

is woven the shadows of romance, is the
Cincinnati trophy, representing the Trl-
state championship. After Mlsa Button had
won thla three years In succession and
was entitled to permanent possession. It
mysteriously disappeared, and In spite of
the efforts of local detectlvea no trace waa
ever found of the handsome piece of silver
ware. Consequently this Is lacking In the
picture. It Is understood, however, that
a duplicate Is now on Ita way to the one
who la rightly entitled to It.
Another Interesting missing trophy from
the collection Is the Wimbledon gold plate,
one of the most highly prised emblems
In the English world. This never leaves
the possession of All-English Tennis club,
but the name of the American champion
Is engraved upon It, In company with the
names of the English women who have
achieved the honor In years past.
REVIVAL OF THE BANDANNA
Varlona Old-Time Styles, Quaint and
Beantlfnl, Coming Into
There was a time, say B0 years ago, when
red bandanna handkerchlefa were an article
of extensive and common use. Middle aged
and older men were In those days likely
to carry a red silk bandanna. If not dally
at least upon occasion, as on Sundays;
and among what might be described aa
old-fashioned men there were many who
never carried a handkerchief of any other
It was a hsndkerchlef of this sort that
was pictured with one comer of It hanging
negligently from a coattall pocket of the
stately gentleman who always appeared in
frock coat; In tucking Its capacious folds
Into his pocket that corner strayed out. It
Was a handkerchief of this sort that was
brought Into use when, as In the old phrase,
the same stately gentleman blew his nose
sonorously, this soft, voluminous and really
luxurious handkerchief being a silk ban
danna printed perhaps with a palm leaf
pattern or with some geometrical or other
For children there were provided many
red cotton bandannas, while In the south
red cotton bandannaa were commonly used
by the slaves, by the women to tie around
their heads, and there was silk bandannas,
too, put to this use. No picture of an old
time southern mammy would be complete
around her hoad and knotted In front with
around her head and knoted in front with
the ends projecting on either side of the
Bo of the red bandanna handkerchief
aay CO years ago, before the war, but after
the war things were different. The red
bandanna aeemed to have largely disap
peared. There were, to be sure, still men who
carried red bandanna 'silk handkerchiefs,
as there ever since continued to be some;
but still, after the war, the red bandanna
largely disappeared, supplanted by white
handkerchiefs of linen or of cotton, and
white handkerchiefs have continued to rule
substantially ever since.
But In the last five years there haa been
here a comparatively limited, but s'Ul grow
ing revival of the old-time bandanna.
In this revival. In which the use of them
might be discarded as a fad, the red silk
bandannas are mostly worn by younger
people, both men and women.
Women tie these gay handkerchiefs about
their heads as part, of a bathing outfit.
Men use them largely as handkerchiefs;
a red bandanna tucked In the pocket of a
white flannel coat giving an agreeable
daah of color.
Men wear them as ueck handkerchiefs,
tied with a loose knot with flowing ends In
front, and they wear them also on the
tennis courts or on the golf links in place
of a belt tied around through the belt loops.
Again, women buy them In seta of three
of which they make ahirt waists.
Many of the red silk bandannaa now
shown and these silk bandannaa are pro
duced In varloua other colors aa well are
very beautiful. Among the simpler hand
kerchlefa are those found In various solid
colors that are known aa diamond tie spots.
Such a bandanna, which might be orange
colored or green or lavender or red, has
scattered upon It at regular Intervals dia
monds of white where the silk has not been
dyed. These white diamonds are made or
left In the handkerchief by tleing the silk
there lightly around, so that the silk under
the tie can't be reached by the coloring
when the handkerchief la dipped In the die
Then there are handkerchiefs with pretty
patterns printed on the white silk in gray,
giving a gray effect, half morning; and
then there are the greater number of these
handkerchiefs, the red bandanna, with de
vices and patterns In a great variety of
designs, all these other than those of the
diamond tie spots being printed on the
handkerchiefs from blocks upon which the
design Is first drawn.
BUTTONS F0R TRIMMING
In Many Styles, Shapes and Blses,
They Are to Be Kxtenslvely
Buttons are a favorite form of trimming;
they are made In all shapes, sizes and ma
terlal. Many of tho smart trotting skirts
have tho front breadth trimmed with but
tons of the material and buttonholes from
the belt to the beginning of the plalte.
-ven gowna of silk, satin, crepe de chine
are trimmed with buttons of tho same ma
terial. Far costlier buttons, made of en
amel and porcelain, decorate handsome,
gowns, while buttons made of silver and
gold are setn.
Passementerio buttons, which were de
cidedly in vogue a few seasons ago, are
now considered more modish than ever.
They are especially pretty for a gown of
green or navy blue. A model of laurel
green aerge shows a line of large black
passementerie buttons set at the back,
at each aide from shoulder to hem. The
only other trimming on this princess gown
was a band of black satin at the wrists
B!ack taffeta la considered a smart trim
ming and Is used not alone on green and
blue, but on delicate shades of pink, blue
and white. The taffeta Is sometimes only
used for collar and cuff, but it occasionally
appcarB In a deep band at the bottom of
A new and pretty trimming for gowns
of light shades and material Is a coarse
white net cut Into widths to auit and dotted
with pastilles of coarse threads. It la
edged with narrow bands of the material
of the gown. Scarfs play no less a role
aa ornaments; they are worn to trim
waists, aa girdles, sashes, etc. They are
seen In all colors and made of every ma
terial from heaviest plaids to softest crepe
de chine. They are thrown across the
shoulder, suggesting a Scottish shswl, now
tied about the waist like an Algerian dan
cer's .shawl, and draped Intricately, copy
ing the Greek toga. They are trimmed
with knota of the materlala. long, costly

BOSTON'S . BAKED BEAN BILL
Pate Vs Tea Million Tear for
Millions of P.rnirtn of the Fav
There was a noticeable scarcity of beans
In Boston recently, due to the fact that
last year's crop had become pretty well
exhausted, while the new crop was late in
arriving from the west. The wholesale
price went up over $1 a bushel, therby
greatly lowering the margin of profit on a
10-cent plate of this favorite dish.
But there is no danger of a famine, as
a plentiful supply Is assured for the com
Beans will be much cheaper, , too, which
Is cheerlnsr news for Boston.
In that section of the market district
where tho raw beans of commerce consti
tute a large and important staple of trade,
wholesale dealers In them say that the
new crop, while not large enough to be
classed aa an actual record breaker, is a
good slied one, far ahead of that of 1907,
which was very small.
Boston draws the supply of raw mats
rial for Its baked bean output very largely
from New Tork, Michigan and California,
so that this season's bounteous harvest In
those three states means much to Boston,
the great bean metropolis of the world,
where the consumption of beans Is the
largest on earth, running away .up Into the
millions of quarts annually, with thirty
five quarts as the estimated quantity eaten
every year by each of the men, women
and children making up the nearly 680,000
Five hundred thousand bushels of beans
are received and consumed tn Boston each
year. That Is equal to 16,000.000 quarts.
But these figures are for the raw, un
cooked beans. Tha actual consumption Is
really double that, or 82,000,000 ouarts of
baked beans'; for a quart of beans put Into
the oven In Its pot will swell to such an
extent during the process of baking that
one quart will actually make two quarts
Taking the sale of beans by the whole
sale dealers, the prices paid for them by
people who bake beans In their own homes,
the money put out by the bakeries and the
big bean packing establishments that sup
ply hotels and restaurants, and the price
laid down for a plnte of them by those
who Indulge their appetites In thla frugal
fare In patronising the purveyors of baked
beana at eating houses, and It Is figured
out that the yearly baked bean bill of Bos
ton is closely to $10,000,000. That seems like
a pretty large sum, but It la considered a
modest estimate of the amount of money
that the Hub spends on baked beans every
All the bakeries in the city turn out
baked beana every day as part of their
regular business, and In addition there are
three or four establlshmenta devoted ex
clusively to the business of baking beans,
and on these very many hotels, restaur
ants and quick lunch placea depend for
their supply. One or two of these estab
lishments put but 6.(100 quarts a week.
The dwellers in Little Italy In the North
End and the Jewish population of the
West End take as largely and as kindly
to baked beans as ever did a native son
of New England, and they are large con
sumers of this staple Boston article of
diet. In fact, baked beans possess a charm
for all nationalities who come to the home
of them and get a taste of the genuine
product. No matter from what country
of the earth a man may hall, when he
plants himself In Boston he soon becomes
a loyal devotee of the bean pot. That is
why the demand for baked beans Is con
stantly on the Increase here and Instead
of $10,000,000 Boston will ere long be spend
ing $30,000,000 a year for beans.
The preparation and baking of the beans
Is an Interesting operation. In those es
tablishments where beans only are baked
It Is done on a huge scale. There are
great kettles that hold two or three bushels
