Unique Costumes at Kasauerade.

'Old-fashioned gowns, worn by
ttjeir mothers and grandmothers
thirty years ago, formed the costumes
for a number of the girls, who had
evidently spent the last few days
rummaging in the old trunks in the
attic, consulting fashion books of
yore, and getting hints as to what
their grandmothers wore when girls.
Miss Helen smith wore her grand
mother's dress, which was twenty-five
years old and made with the tight
fitting' boned black silk basque, and
a full skirt with a train and many
puffs. A hat trimmed with various
colored ostrich feathers was worn
with this quaint old costume.
Miss Dorothy Smith also had a
gown made in similar fashion, worn
thirty years ago by her grandmother.
This had a blue skirt, tight-boned
basque and with it she wore a hat
with a red feather sticking up in back.
Miss Ruth Slabaugh wore an old
fashioned party gown of her mother's
and Mrs. Nile-Booth wore her grand
mother's archery suit of champagne
color, with a stin cut-away coat, and
puffed skirt made very full. The
bonnet was quite the most interesting
of any that was worn, for her grand
mother pjrchased it in Paris many
years ago, and it was a cunning little
poke trimmed with petite red roses.
Miss Dorothy Bingham's make-up
was considered perhaps the most com
: ical and original. It was an 1820
model made with an extremely tight
kirt draped with most every color
of the rainbow, and she wore the
never-to-be-forgotten red satin tango
shoes and a small hat of many colors.
Miss Marjorie Beckett is another
who made a raid upon the attic, for
she wore a unique old dress of her
mother's and gay plaid stockings and
The Misses Katherine Davenport
and Elizabeth Carr were little girls,

maiden with red apron and sunbon
The men had also been through
their fathers' relegated wardrobes.

Mr. Ned Aitchison wore a small
derby hat, tight-fitting riding trous
ers faced up with all colors of baby
ribbon and was minus the riding
boots, while Mr. Taylor Belcher wore
an old and ill-fitting dress suit with
only one sleeve and one dancing
pump, a mismated oxford on the
The only disappointing feature of
the evening was when refreshment
time came, and none were.to be found.
Evidently, some mischievous little
boys decided to play a trick on their
older brothers, and they did not leave
even a glass of punch to quench the
thirst of the opera comique dancers.

Ribbon accessories add much to the
charm of the' summer outfit. The
girdle here is fashioned in pale blue
radium ribbon. A fascinating bag in
blue and white ribbon adds a fetching
note to one's outfit. Ribbon hats are
exceedingly attractive, as may be
judged from the slightly rolling
brimmed hat illustrated. All of these
little details tend to "trim up" an
otherwise simple outfit.
Mrs. Hoy's Son Sends
Appeal and Protest

Washington, Feb. 28. President
Wilson has received the following
cablegram from Austin Y. Hoy, whose
mother and sister were lost when the
Laconia was torpedoed without warn
ing by a German submarine.
i am an American citizen repre
senting the Sullivan Machinery com
pany of Chicago, living abroad, not
as an expatriate, but for the promo
tion of American trade. I love the
flag, believing in its significance. My
beloved mother and sister, passengers
on the Laconia, have been foully mur
dered on the high seas.
"As an American citizen outraged
and as such fully within my rights
and as an American son and brother
bereaved, I call upon my govern
ment to nreserve its citizens self re
spect and save others of my country-

RECIPE TO DARKEN
This Home-Made Mixture Darkens
Gray Hair and Makes It
Soft and Glossy.
To a half pint of water add:
Bay Rum 1 oz.
rJarbo Compound a small box
Glycerine 'A oz.
These are all simple ingredients
that you can buy from any druggist
at very little cost, and mix them your
self. Apply to the hair once a day
for two weeks, then once every other
week until all the mixture is used.
A half pint should be enough to
darken" the gray hair and make it soft
and glossy. It is not sticky or
greasy and does not rub off. It
should make a gray-haired person
look 20 years younger. Adv.
