becoming to everyone and la delightfully
cool for summer.
To begin at the top and also because
hats are more fascinating than any other
part of a woman's wardrobe:
There Is an all-white hemp hat from
Marie-Guy, Paris, In the Rrandela mil
linery department which is unusually at
tractive. It has a soft, rather high crown
of hemp, which has horlsontsJ cordlngs
of white taffeta. The brim Is narrow and
at the left side rises a big, fluffy white
prince of Wales plume.
One of the Beancourt hats Is high,
close-fitting and dainty. The groundwork
la of dark blue fine straw and Is veiled
with crepe, mottled with Egyptian colors
alternating with white tucked crepe. A
bunch of crepe buds Is the only trimming.
A large hat from Maison Lewis Is of
champagne-colored hemp, the wide, flat
brim rolling up near the front The top
of the crown has a turban-llke effect in
softly folded primrose taffeta. From this
all around the crown branch the graceful
Neu Mtdda feathers which have super
ceded aigrettes. They are primrose shade
near the top of the hat and grow black
at the tips near the edge ot the brim.
A Buxane Talbot bat to small and close
fitting like a toque. It Is of beauvals
blue a navy shade-end of Milan straw.
A high gray plume trims the side and
the facing Is of the same shade of taffeta.
Has den Bros, have a Oahy Deslys hat
which at very dashing. It Is small and
close, of silver fishnet with three rhino
stone bands at the edge and a big rhlne
stone with several pendants In the front,
from which black plumes covered with
Neu Mldda feathers cover the crown and
extend far back. ' -
A -black Milan has for Its only Trim-'
ming a whtle ostrich plume under a thlr-ty-slx
Inch pheasant tall. A black velvet
band surrounds the crown. A huge black
hemp hat with drooping brim has as
lis only adornment three primrose-colored
dogtali plumes. Another big hat is a
French gray Milan, with a loose foliage
trimming from which rise two bit Pnk
The little Paul Polrets in changeable

aim king's blue and empire green.
In addition to the coronet shapes, with
their ostrich plumes, fancy feathers and
ornaments and flowers, there Is a vast
array of sailors, derbys, pokes and bonnet
effects with tsllored trimmings. Flowers.
cupId wings, veilings and filet and shadow
laces are used generously. Never, say the
milliners, has there been so much In
tricate handwork as there to this season.
Fancy and Plain.
The new suits offer a wide range for
choice, for they are both fancy and plain,
are found In many different materials
and cut on a variety ot lines. Jackets
are somewhat shorter than those ot last
winter and are both straight and cut
away. Rrrers and lapels and collars
are large and long. giving a decidedly
swashbuckling effect. Sleeves are both
long and three-quarters length, many
having deep cuffs which correspond with
the collars sad re vers.
Skirts are cut on long, straight lines
with little more fullness than In the
last winter. They are simple, carrying
out In braidings, buttons or stitching the
motif of the jacket.
There are many changeable taffetas
and one-color silk sulta. In the fabrics
are the phlpcords, French serges, Eng
lish suitings, two-tone dlcgonals, mixed
worsteds, novelty stripes and the regula
tion hatr-llne stripes. There are also
many linen sulte-mostly white for mid
There Is a decided trend In the suits
toward having collars, cuffs and revers
of a different material and color from
the suit proper. For instance, some of
the blue serge suits aavo collar and
cuffs of ratine a material which looks
exactly tike bath toweling with a piping
of cardinal or empire green. Some of
the suits come with the removable lace
collar and cuff sets on them. The elab
orate cuffs and collars is a marked fea
ture of the new sulta.
The most extreme and the newest Idea
In the fancy enllar effects on the spring
suits la the fichu. The fichu la large,
almost covering the upper part of the
Jacket and Is usually of some One, white
material trimmed with woe.
Pwalln and Fsrhw Effect,
One at the suits which has this flche
effect is of dark blue poplin the beauvals
shade. A double fichu almost covers the
thirty-inch coat It la of fine batiste
witfe rather large coral -colored polka dots
scattered through It and with a one lack

waist la the back. The deep cuffs of the
taras-taanba sleeves are covered with the
batiste edged with lace and have a ver
tical raw ef fancy buttons to tiw i eapund

However attractive the suits of differ
ent colors may be the white suite take
precedence In point ot up-to-dateness.
The white suits are In the French serges,
the whipcords In a new ribbed fabric
which looks like corduroy and In linen.
Linen Salts Pretty.
Tho white linen suits for later in the
season are prettier than they have ever
been before, and are to be the smartest
thing for summer, so the clothiers say.
These suits are in both Jacket and skirt
and jacket and one-piece dress. The
loveliest, also the most expensive, ar?
covered with hand embroidery.
One suit is of heavy linen with one-
piece dres end jacket. The cutaway coat
deep shawl collar and wide cuffs of the
long sleeves are elaborately wrought In
Florentine embroidery In an aster flower
design. The bottom of the skirt has a
deep border narrowing and scattering to
ward the top In the aster pattern, which
also covers the waist
Another whlto linen suit not quite so
ornate has a jacket with cutaway coat
and simple skirt The deep collar ot the
jacket which comes to a point In the
back, and also the deep cuffs ot the
sleeves are daintily embroidered and
edged with a two-Inch Irish lace. The
jacket buttons with three big crystal
pear-shaped buttons and similar buttons
are on the back of the Jacket, on the
cuffs and on the skirt
EASTER'S M0VAB1L1TY FIXED
Why the Rellsrtons Feast Day Varies
from March S3
In 1909 Easter Sunday fell on April U.
In 1810 It fell on March S. In MM It
came on April 19. In 1911 It went forward
to April II again. In 190a It came on April
23, In 11S to April 7, and In Nil It will
come on March 23. How many people
understand the reason for this extreme
irregularity in the data ot the principal
feast of the Christian yearT
The actual arrangement Is easy enough
to explain, but the reason for the ar
rangement Is a little harder to get at
According to the ecclesiastical program.
Easter Is celebrated on the first Sunday
after the first full moon after the spring
equinox. Everybody knows that the
mouths and their days are arranged in
the calendar according to the solar year.
and that the full moon never comes on
the same day of the month In two suc
cessive years. In 190. for Instance, the
full moon following the spring equinox
(March 21) came on April . and the first
Sunday after that was April 11-end con
sequently that date was Easter. This
year the first full moon after March II
comes on March 31, and the seventh day
after that Is Sunday. Therefore, we have
Easter on April 7. The earliest date on
which Easter can fall Is March K, and
the latest April J.
But why Is this arrangement, this cycle,
followed? We have to go back to Jeru
salem for the answer to that Easter to
the perpetuation of the Jewish Passover.
Christ the Paschal Lamb, was slain on
the day when the Jews sacrificed a real
lamb. The Roman Christian began by
celebrating the feast of the resurrection
on the Hth ot Nlsan of the Jewish calen
dar. But the Jewish calendar did not fit
the Julian calendar, which was In use In
Rome; an attempt to make It fit resulted
In a constant shift from date to date In
the Julian calendar, and the eventual sim
plified plan of the date after the spring
equinox was the result of an attempt to
escape the confusion.
This Is at least tho ecclesiastical ex
planation. But In this explanation no dis
tinct reason Is found to account tor the
tact that the moon to brought in at all.
Why was not the first Sunday after the
equinox, or a fixed date, say, March 26,
like that of Christmas, chosen?
To answer this question the Influence
of the moon cult upon the early Christians
must be Invoked. To the ancient Ro
mans, to the Greeks, and to the Jews
themselves the Christians owed thslr no
tion that the moon exercised a distinct
Influence In human affairs; and aa the
Jews had regarded he moon of Nlsan as
peculiarly sacred, so did also the early
Christians. And they assumed the "moon
of Nlsan" to be the first one to arrive
after the vernal equinox.
At this day we know and rare nothing
whatever about the moon of Nlsan. but
It continues to Influence our social, re
ligious and business affairs In a marked
manner.-New York MalL
Matinees Are Made
on Straight Lines
The matinees for house wear are made
on long straight linen and of clinging
materials-crepe de chine, messallne,
Swiss, marquisette, India linen and
striped and fancy nainsooks. They are

boudoir caps to match. The caps are
snug, round affairs with a narrow lace
frill and French roses In pink, blue or
other color to match the gown.

A Sarprlsr for the Mrldesrewss,
George von L Meyer, secretary of the
navy, said at the recent banquet of the
American Society of Naval Engineers:
"A verv fashionable wedding once took
place in Washington. Only the Intimate
friends of either family were lnvneo ana
all seemed to be bent on having the best
time of their lives. There was. however,
one exception. A young man did not seem
to be enjoying himself a bit.

the sad-looking young gentleman wan
dered around the house, inspecting the
wedding presents and displaying great In

"Flnallv the hapor bridegroom noticed

pleasant and having Imbibed enough to be
able to do so. asked him why he did not
mingle and have some fun.

thlng like a cyclone haa recently swept
through tht Russian church, and Bear
the center of It Is again the "mad monk"
Helldorus. An end was suddenly put to
the monk's amaxing exterritoriality tram
the civil and ecclesiastical power. For a
presumptuous telegram addressed to the
emperor, accusing the holy synod of
heretical and uncanonical proceedings,
Hellodorus' patron. Bishop Hermogenes,
was dismissed from membership In that
body. His refusal to depart for bis dio
cese m Sara toff led to Hs being taken
away from him. Finally both ha and
Hellodorus, who had come up from
Tsarltsyn to wage bis battle, were exiled
to remote monasteries In Grodno and
Vladimir provinces. This order was en
forced only after a fortnight of Insub
ordination, In which Hermogenus u
sustained by some ot the most jtifluendai
leaders of political and court circles.
Meanwihel, Hellodorus had disappeared
In a mysterious manner from the capital,
ostensibly to make a pilgrimage. He mys
teriously reappeared in St Petersburg
after a fortnight's absence and also made
a show of submission and departed for
his place of exile.
Third Klemeat In Prakleaa.
The personal element In these sensa
tional developments Includes a third
figure, Gregory Rasputin, a reputed "holy
man" residing In Tsarkoe Selo. He. It
now appears, wss ths power behind Hell
odorus, enabling the latter to say and
do what he liked In defiance of the synod
and of the whole government The Inter
dict upon the press of St Petersburg and
Moscow against publishing anything
about Rasputin and the confiscation of
about ten issues of different newspapers.
Including some as influential m ruling
circles as the Novoe Vremya and the
Oolos Moskvy, Is another manifestation
et Rasputin's power. His support was on
personal grounds recently wlthorawn
from Hellodorus and his group with Im
mediate consequences to them.
Rasputin keeps as much In the back
ground as possible. With all the slyness
of the peasant when dealing with persons
In authority, Rasputin avoided getting
Into trouble with the holy synod, though
he has demonstrated repeatedly that tne
synod Is powerless before him.
Rise at Peasant,
This untutored peasant from Siberia
has gained all his power In six years.
He owes his Introduction In the sate
chambers of the great to Hermogenes,
Hellodorus end Theophanus, who led the
ultra-reactionary movement which came
In the wake ot the revolution. Rasputin,
however, restricted himself to the relig
ious sphere of action. Those who came
near him conceived sn Idea that be waa
a person ot extraordinary spiritual ex

held In the highest circles. One of the
