THE COURIER. FA8HIN LETTER. Gowns of organdio as J was about to Gay last week rank next in popu larity to gowns of all lace on the Bum mer wardrobe of tbo well-dressed woman. There never was a season when flimsy materials were more in vogue, not only for day wear but for candlelight toilettes as well. Heavy velvets, BatinB, and all stuffs that savor of a dead and gone winter season are now relegated to oblivion with the coming of warm woather. Delightful change from a few years ngo, when women dressed for dinner partiee, on a hot night in summer, with the same oppressive, heavy splendor with which they were wont to desk IhomselveB for a similar function when the mercury wbb down to freezing regions! Nothing is too simple in the way of fabric to serve for the building of these airy aud dninty frocks, that carry an atmosphere of refreshing coolness in their every fold. Lace, organdie, point d'esprit, Liberty gauze, swanskin, pine apple muBlin, net, chiffon, batiste there Ib indeed no end to the fascinat ing fabrics that can be turned into charming toilets. Even dotted Swiss probably the material for which one gets the most for the least money, and which represents the quintessence of economy is far from being despised. As a matter of fact, one of the smartest gowns of this genre that I have reen ie fashioned of white Swiss, covered closely with a small dot tiny dots, let me say, are much better style than the larger ones in this particular material com bined with black Chantilly lace, the lace forming a long polonaise. This polonaise was worn over a plain skirt of dotted Swiss, and fasteaed ''down the front with a row of email stress but tons. Plain and very lanky skirts are much better Btyle now than all the ruflly arrangements exploited the early part of the season, and they bring out the lines of the tunic or polonaise with much more grace and effectiveness. This is the moment, by the way, to use your grandmother's black thread lace shawl. Nothing iB smarter than a polonaise fashioned of Buch a shawl, or it can be turned into a long coat; or, if one does not fancy that, it can be used "Capuchin" fashion on a cape of white taffeta covered with black net; or a dozen other ways, which depend largely upon the size and shape of the shawl, and one of which, will give you a gar ment that you may feel justly proud to possess. For it is not everyone who can boast of a grandmother, you know, let alone a thread-lace-shawl grandmother. But to return to organdies. There are organdies and organdies. For some organdies you pay thirty five and fifty cents, and exquisite color ing you get for the price; and for some organdies you pav one dollar, or two, or three the more expensive it is the more artistic the coloring and the finer and softer the fabric. For Borne organ dies, you can pay well, I don't know how much a yard, because they do not come that way. Each gown is fashioned expressly for its wearer, and the price is considerable, because, in this cbbb, the plain black organdie is hand-painted in whatever design and coloring appeal most to the woman who is ordering it. Raudnitz is responsible for a very good model of this kind. A number of women, including Mrs. "Stuyve" Fish, are exploiting it. It has a black back ground, over which are scattered closely big bunches of huge American Beauty roses. The tints of the rose and the green of its leaves are charmingly ex ecuted. Mrs. Fish's gown is trimmed with black lace and has a tiny guimpe of cloth-of-gold. With this gown she wears a hat that is itself a veritnblo rose garlon. The quality of clothes that ono noods in ono's summer wardrobo, to bo well and comfortably gowned in this change able climato of ours, is something ap palling. You think you havo got just the thiegs you need, when piff! merrily up goon the thermometor sovoral de grees higher, or down it goes equally gayly several degrees lower, than you had anticipated when laying in your Btock of summer things. So the ma jority of ub, unices possessed of un limited resources, epond a good many days in the aggravating condition of being too warmly clad or not clad warmly enough. That is whore the fashion of tho coat and skirt, with its vast number of odd bodices, has been so invaluable. Un happily, tho coat and skirt regime is not what it was. In fact, except to bo worn on occasions that involve actual travel, the really well-dres9ed woman haB more or leB9 tabooed them. Even well-dressed women will do stupid things occasionally; for in place of the ubiquitous coat and Bkirt toiletto, one requires a collection of those "sim ple little gowns" that one talks of so lightly, but which, nevertheless, mako one's milliner's bill anything but "sim ple." To be sure of being well and comfortably dressed one needs at least a dozen crowns of thiB descripton, of various weights and hueB. Just at this season, however, many of the smart women are flitting in and out of town and making all manner of small journeys; their coats and skirts are still so much in evidence that the caeual observer might never guess that their cachet had to a great extent departed. Mrs. "Jack" Astor, for one, has been wearing a very smart little coat and skirt lately. The coat is an Eton of dark blue serge, made absolutely plain, with a rolled collar with small rovers done in light blue cloth. The skirt falls, in long, straight, narrow lines, with no suggestion of the double skirt or tunic effect. I notice there is a disposition on the part of many of the best dressed women to eschew these double drapery effects; aud I think they are quite right, for really, although thoy are very effective when carried out in diaphanous ma terials, they often look exceedingly foolish when adapted to gowns to be used practically. With this little frock Mrs. Astor wears a round hat of turquoise blue straw, trimmed simply with a big soft bow of chiffon of the same color. Lady Modish. NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL AS SOCIATION MEETING.
