The chroniclo I in ado last wook of a
few of tho smart gownB worn by the
smart eot mot with eo much apprecia
tive interest from my inquiring corres
pondents that I fool tho loast I can do !b
to respond to thoir expressions of grati
tudo by giving them a poop or two moro in
print at tho wardrobes of tho "chosen
As I was saying Mrs. Clary Mackay's
frock that is, one of hor many, many
frocks ia mauve cloth of a particularly
pretty shade. Tho skirt lite with fault
less precision about tho hipB and to tho
lino of tho knoo, whero it springs into a
limited amount of fulness through tho
medium of a deep flounce.
Of course it trails, but not in as pro.
nounced a way as some of tho skirts that
I havo described. Mrs. Mackay's skirt
fastens well to one side. With it she
wears a blouse of mauve silk a shade
brighter than tho cloth. The blouso is
a runzo of tiny cordinge.
Tho hat that Mrs. Mackay wears with
this toilotto is mauve, trimmed with
choux of mauve chifTon. She sometimes
wears a short coat of mauve cloth with
this costume and at other timoBonly an
elaborate ruil of mauve chifTon like
that which adorns her hat.
Mrs. Arthur Kemp 1b dovotod to Eton
jackets and skirts to bo worn with
blou60B. One of hor Eton jackets is
blnck cloth done in an intricate pattern
cut out. Tho cloth iB machine stitched
over a white satin background. With
this coat Mrs. Kemp sometimes wears a
plain cloth skirt of fine black and white
checks and a white silk or satin shirt
waist with a black hat.
Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr., like
Mrs. Bradley Martin, Mrs George de
Forest and others in tho smart Bet,
affects gray. One of her carriage toilottos
huB a capo of gray cloth covored with
strappings of machine-stitched gray taff
eta. Hor hat is a Hat gray turban with
two Mercury wings poised directly in the
centre of tho front of it. A boa of gray
feathers about her throat completes the
symphony in gray.
Mrs. Herman Oelricbs is wearing a
bright blue foulard sprinkled with mod
ium sized white polka dots. It is made
with a long tunic, which springs into
fulness at the bottom. The underskirt
is plain. The bodice is tight fitting in
the back and slightly bloused in the
front. It has revers covered with heavy
white lace that turn back from a small
guimpe of the same lace.
The "late" Mrs. Gordon McKay, now
the Baroness von Bruening, is wearing
a gray gown too. It 1b of net done iu an
all-over design in silver gray spangles.
Tho high bodice ha6 the neck and sleeves
a jour, and the whole gown is spangled
bo elaborately that it makesquito a blaze
of white light. With her gray gown
Baroness von Bruening wears a wide hat
that tilts over her face, a la marie An
toinette. It is trimmed with some pink
ish flowers of delicate hue.
This is quite one of the most stunning
gowns I have seen but there, I remem
ber that I promised myself that I would
refrain from comment of any kind on
whatever frocks I described for tho do
loctation of my enquiring correspondents
that privilege being left to them.
Mrs. Jessie Tyson, who has boen in
town recently, is an exponent of the ex
aggerated tailor-made type of women to
a degree that makoB her tuste conspicu
ous through its very severity, tfoet
women nowadays manage to give their
tailor-made garments some touch that
suggests dainty femininity. Not so Mrs.
Tyson. She wears her coat stiffly tight,
and both they and her skirts Bcorn the
slightest attempt at ornamentation.
Her hate are the smallest to be found,
and her dark hair is worn plain and
cIobo to hor head.
Mrs. Tyson haB tho reputation of be
ing a beauty, and boautioB, of courso,
can afTord to havo a stylo of thoir own.
I quoto hor to Bhow my inquiring cor.
respondents that tho Hold whoroin a
woman may range and yot bo well gown
od is a wide one; but she had bettor not
wandor too far unless sho indeed bo
poBBosaod of tho power that beauty gives
and that makcB all things possible ovon
Apropos of smartly drcBBod women, if
my inquiring correspondents aro really
keen about seeing somo good frocks woll
worn I would advise thorn to go to tho
Lyceum, where they aro playing "H1b
Excelloncy tho Governor." Miss Mill
ward's gownB are quite "dreams.''
The firet gown is of deep yellow linen
lace of vory bold design. It forms a long
tunic that roaches to the bottom of the
skirt in tho front, forming two square
points at either side, a triflo shorter at
tho sides, and descending in a sweeping
lino to the bottom of tho trailing skirt
in tho back. Underneath tho tunic is a
succcBBionof chiffon flounces. Over tho
too flounce, at intervals, are appliquod
splashes of the same lace aa tho tunic.
Tho bodico and slooves are also of this
lace. Tho guimpo and top of the bleeves
aro formed of transparent ehirrincs of
yellow chiiroo. Tho laco is drawn up
over tho shoulders, giving the guimpo a
Vshapo in tho front and back. This
laco is held on either shoulder by strap
ornaments of unusual beauty. With
this costume Mies Millard wears a hat
of pink poppies, and her paraBol is
formed entirely of poppy petals lined
with yellow chidon and outlined with a
yellow chiffon wreath. It has a long
Malacca stick, which is crooked, the
crook having a deep tip of gold.
Mibs Millward's dinner gown, in the
Becond act, is of a peculiar blue-green
chiffon, covered wth black net, heavily
spangled with silvor. It has elbow
eleeveb that aro transparent, and the
bodico, which is vory decollete in tho
back, formB two deep scallops over the
bust, that are transparent, like tho
slooves, and outlined with big green
MiBS Millward's last gown is a peignoir
of a very unusual design. It is cut on
the lines of a surplice. It is done in
white Liberty gauze, has wide surplice
sleeves, and is worn over a petticoat of
tho same material. The gown is out
lined about the hem, the sleeves and the
neck, which iu slightly decollete, in
white laco of exquisite design, that is
appliqued on tho Liberty gauze.
Wo are accustomed to the quotation
"The play's the thing!" but it seems
probable that it soon may be changed
to "The clothes are the thing!" 1 learn
in a letter from London, so much im
portance is getting to be attached to the
dressing of a piece, that "Sarnac Sahib,"
as a play, is a failure, but that Mrs.
James Brown Potter's gowns are so
marvolously beautiful that the piece
will probably havo a good run.
So there you are! Town Topies.
Its a minister's duty to make a man
Yet there is not one of them that
would'nt marry a fellow for five dollars.
They say that liquid air is the coldest
thing known, 1 wonder if it will ever be
put to any use?
Of course! Properly flavored it will be
sold in Boston for ice cream.
I suppose you are aware, Fred, that
an engagement is a serious thing.
Oh, yea. Why some lead to marriage.
Little sister is telling a fairy tale to
her baby brother. She says impres
sively: And the wicked giant seized the
man and took a large knife and cut out
hiB heart, his liver, and his bacon.
