WHAT THE NEWLY WED SHOULD KNOW , Evening & LADY DUFF-GORDON, the famous "Lucile" of London, and fore moit creator of fashions in the world, write each week the fashion article for this newspaper, presenting aH that is newest and best in style for well-dres.ed women. Lady Duff-Gordon's Paris establishment brings her into clou touch with that centre of fashion. Lady Duff-Gordon's American estabKshment is at Not, 37 and 39 West Fifty-seventh street, New York. By Lady Duff-Gordon ("Lucile"). u sN the Spring the feminine fancy lightly turns to fashions bizarre. Wfe havo always a certain number of what I call freak fashions, and we indulge our love for the new and novel by 'adopting these in their turn. It is bo cause of the newness of the Spring; the annual budding pf the flowers, and the flow ing of the sap in the trees and shrubs makes us Ions, like the earth, to cast asido our Winter trappings and to put on as many new things as our pocketbooks permit And this is why I think that we women wear in thete Spring months gowns and hats that we would not wear at any other season. Aa I have told you many times, this sea son finds remarkably few freakish hats, but as though to compensate for this our gowns have many unusual features. And among ' these are the slit skirts and the near trousers that some of the mondalnes are wearing, Iain sending you tils week two models that-'I think show the new Ideas to their best advantage. The first one is the Tol stoy gown. The skirt as you will see, fast an to the front. The two sides are brought together, the left over the right The left side Is ace4 with satin of a contrasting eeler, Tfcte arrangement gives thtt near- trouser effect The peasant' blouse is what gives the name to the whole costume, foe it is modelled on the lines of those worn by Tolstoy when he lived the simple life on his Russian estate. The peplum is attached to the skirt as you can see In the second fig ure. Tho blouse is plain and tight and draws on over the head like a Jersey. This whole costume is created in old blue chiffon broadcloth. The skirt facing is a bright green. Worn with this is a charming littfc hat of butter color straw swathed with blue and green shot silk. The feather fancy out spreading at the back Is the shade of the hat The second figure shows the bodice worn with the Tolstoy costume. It is a very charming yttle affair of blue chiffon over green chiffon, and worn over a lace slip. It Is simple, but delightfully chic. And right here let me tell you that the day of tho marquesetto and voile has passed for bodices, and wo are back where we started from the' chiffon counter. Everything that can be made of chiffon must ho. This is obligatory. In the third picture I am showing you what I consider the most chic mode of the Russian blouse that I have created. This rATRIMONY la a fine art To criticise, It properly on must tea It at & distance. then on can and the small flaws that sometimes apoll the masterpiece." Mrs. Isabella Kellle, a writer and a business woman, who has been suc cessful at many things. Including matrimony, fives her ldeaa on this, subject to the Newly Weds to-day. "A happy marriage Is made up ot little sacrifices on both aides. When these sacrifices are appreolatod by the other half they turn In to mutual pleasures. "It takes a sreat deal of thought to make a line art ot matrimony. Few young- married people are willing to study each other's needs and make allowances lor tach other. Married couples soon get into the habit of ordering each other about without saying "please" and thank you.' A woman will do many Uttlo cervices for a man if he voices his wants politely and the same applies with equal truth to the other sex. "Generally one flnda when a mar riage la not ideal that the couple are suffering from too muoh of each other's aoclety. In the days when most people lived In houses sur rounded by gardens the harassed fcero or heroine could flee In the arbor and Indulge In the luxury of soli tude. But there Is no such thing aa solitude lij the modern flat. And every human being feels the need of Wng alone and absolutely quiet at times. Does Not Ham on Trouble, The girl who has been In bualnoas before her marriage realises that her husband Is fagged out when ho cornea home from hla day's work and. It ahe remembers her own experience, oho Vnowa that he can recuDerate and get rested sooner It ahe will refrain from pourlnr out the trials and tribula tions of the day In his ears or adding to his nervous state, by a weepy aym, pathy. Many people are like animals When they are 111 or very tired. They want to be left absolutely alone. "Every person Is entitled to a room or den where they can retire and commune with their own souls when they need to do so, without fear of hurting the feelings ot the rest of the totally. The small apartrotnta where all privacy Is Impossible have had adding modern their share in Nerves." "Aa modern living conditions make It Itnnnanlhla for DflODla to Bet tflS privacy that went with larger houses ana more space, mm senna ui prviivjr must be recognised and respected and fostered and the odfous' familiar ity that Inevitably breeds contempt must be guarded against. One can do It If one Is forewarned and I think that problem lies In the' hands of the wife. Love Doesn't Bar Politeness. ffjiv. hnitM nnt bft a hnr to nnlttfl- nesa and the fact that one Is married la no good excuse tor lorKeiung- innoe small phrases that go with a request auch as 'Do you mind?' or 'Will you be kind enough?" which one would never omit to a stranger and which smooth the rough pldces wonderfully. "There Is 'auch a thing as seelnp: too much of one another and I have known of many coupla. who seem to forget that a man needs the com panionship of other men Just as a woman craves that of other women, "Once the honeymoon Is over I think that a man should bo allowM one night a week for his club or ha friends, providing that the compan ions are of the right kind, of courM. It la a good thing for him to see oth er men than those he meeta In busi ness. "On the other hand, I think later on when there are children and a woman has no nurse for them the father could arrange to take charge of them one evening a week nnd Btve the mother an absolute rest, 'an evening off.' to go to the theatre or aee her friends and amity. Of course, a man says that she has the entlr day to herself, but a .woman with small children has not a minute day or night to call her own. unless aome one else takes the chaVge of the children.

The hobby may be anything from suffrage ' to golf or yachting to suit the Income and taste of tho Individual and husband and wife should not necessarily have the same hobby. "A diversity of Interests or this kind stimulates t,he mlpd and helna conservation when the Inevitable time comts where husband and wife find that they have nothing new to talk about." Thle poem recently toon a cold medal awarded by the London Poet' Clubt BEYOND all poesy, sublimity ot song. Sweet eventide, when mellow shadows throng , The valleys, and the alow, reluotant day. On purple sandals, gliding, steals away Into the gloaming, by the sleeping streams, A pensive spirit passing unto dreams. It la thehour when woods enchanted glow, And gentle winds with dying odors blow. From tree to, tree faint pipe of eve ning call, The bat sweeps circling by the Ivied wall. , A lark dropS fluttering to hla lowly nest. And drowsily the ringdove croons ot r.esL The moan of klne has ceased, the drone of bees, Hut ever a little, stream among the trees Speeds lightly on. and slngeth as It E.oep. Songs that a child at evening might compose. Now the sun's night Is finished in the west" Where far the great clouds veil his flamin; crest. The shepherd pens his weary nock away, Rate folding laggard little ones that stray, Bidding them browse awhile ere dark ness ateep All things that move, In deep, em browned aleep. , High uplands as at early morning shine, Sacred the light that gilds the day;s decline. As when the dawn with holy eyes appears And opening blossoms sparkle with her tears. For gross, foreboding day, which climbs the east. Calling the world to work, and fight, and feast. The cunning day, the fierce. Insistent , hours Of human atrlfe with Nature's dread ful powers. The groaning ot a being chained to. earth. Although ablase with vision from his birth. But, come, the evening calls us, let us go, We must not sorrow because earth hath woe. A passion lingers In this serene air, A passion void of triumph or despair. Empty of storm, and hushed to calm delight. We turn our eyes to greet the coming night The stare are streaming up the boundless hills. The stars which smile a-t men's Incon stant wills. And In an opal radiance, crescent .wise, The moon peers coldly from the limpid skies. PAT REJOINDER. The case concerned a will, and an Irishman wan a witness. "Was the deceased." asked the law. yer. "In the habit of talking to him self "when alone?" . "I don't know." woa the reply. rCome. come, you don't know, and yet you pretend that you were Inti mately acquainted with him?" "The fact Is." said Tat dryly, "I never happened to be with him when he was alone." SERVED HIM RIGHT. iT AM the unlucktest man allvel" A -What's the matter?" "WhyI heard that Muriel was ea gaged, so I went round and proposed 'to her, bo that she wouldn't think Z had been trifling with her." "And wasn't she engaged?" "Yes; but ahe broke It off. 8he said my love was more sincere than the other fellow's." J AT THE MONTH'S, END. ONES Short storits are all the go Robbie Yes. I've noticed It; nearly every person I meet tells me how short he Is. AS HE SAW IT. "Isn't my photograph good?" said a voung wife to her husband. "Well, my dear," replied he. "there'a Just a little too much repose about the mouth for It to bit quite natural."
