Lady Modish Scents the Spring
AM) WRITES OF THE COMIMJ SEASON'S
FOIBLES AND FANTASIES.
Whenever you see spring embodied in
the shop widows it is safe to look oat
for a blizzird on the streets.

that have the right to claim her as their

with an avalanche cf snow she promptly
endeavors to reinstate herself and to em
phasize the power of her reign.
It ib the fate of most coquettes, how
ever, to repent of their shortcomings too
late for their repentence to bear any but
Dead Bea fruit. Winter is no exception
to therrule, so she has shaken her frosty
locks this time to no purpose.
Muslins, organdies, embroideries and
fabrics of every description continue to
sing spring's advent to such an extent
that the few old tricks that winter
always seems to hold in reserve before
she finally abdicates are laughed at and
Plans for Bpring, clothes for spring,
where to go and what to wear for spring
are the topics that fill the air and crowd

to the surprise as well as chagrin of
poor, passe winter. Coquettes do have
their bad moments, you Bee !
With the passing of the season comes
the old cry : "Will the separate waist
go out of favor?' This cry has arisen
at the passing of every season since the
first separate waist came into existence,
and has at times bordered on a wail,
through the intensity of feeling with
which the question is put.
But the great mass who follow the
few who lead need not fear. The sep
arate waist will hold its own thio'Jgh
this and many a season to come.
True, it is not, nor will be, worn as ad
libitum as it once wap, which is as it
should be, for the indiscriminate adop
tion was developing rapidly a tendency
toward sloppy weatherness in the style
of the mutable many.
Under coats and boleros it is an al
most iodispensible note in an ensemble
that has harmony for its aim.
Mrs. Ogden Mills is very fond of sep
arate waists of tucked white satin
oyster white is much smarter than any
other shade of white.
Mrs. Hills scarcely ever wears separate
waists of-any other color.
"Separate waists," not "blouses," as
heretofore, is the more correct way to
designate this important article, for you
see no "blouses" to speak of any more.
Mrs. "Stuyve" Fish is also fond of
separate waists with white satin.
A very good looking one that she wore
the other day at a luncheon had bands
of tucking of the satin, separated by
entre deux of pale yellow point de
At a luncheon given just before she
sailed, Mrs'. "Fred" Neil6on wore a Btun
ning waist of white lace with an enpiece
ment of jet, from which fell long strands
of fine jet beads.
One of the newest of these waists has
a yoke of tiansparent Ghantilly lace and
long, mitten-like, transparent sleeves of
These s'eeves are an adaptation of a
fashion that is much in vogue in Parts;
but which did not reach these shores
this winter. Tnat is, deep cuffs of fur,
not unlike in shape to the cuffs that
butchers wear in their shopp, only
deeper, some of them extending well
above the elbow.
So many gowns en princess, which do
not permit a coat, are being worn in
Paris, that these cuffs were devised for
They must be worn with a collarette
of the same fur, and are easily pulled
oJ upon entering a warm room.
These "mitten sleeves,' done in fine
shirred chiffon, promise to be a feature
of the spring, and will be used to the ex
clusion of gloves to a great extent. So
now is the time to look out for novelties
in the setting for rings for they are to
be worn prodigally.
Medallions of lace applique on dotted
mousseline d'Inde, crepe de Chine and
all Bofr, clinging materials, are among
the most active novelties.
Theee medallions are smartest in Mal
tese or Cluny lace, both black and white,
and, as they are horribly expensive, they
will probably pos3e89 the virtue of re
maining a novelty.
Palm leaves appear on the newest
foulardp, India silks and challies, and
promise to rival in popularity the ever-

popular polka dot.
Roses, too, in various sizes and de
signs, on all kind) of materials, will be
much worn. The most modish color of
spring is gun-metal gray.
Mrs. George Gould has a particularly
smart gown in this color.
It is cloth of a light weight, profusely
embroidered in velvet and chenille of
the same color, a shade darker.
There are a tiny guimpe and collar of
white, but otherwise its exquisite tones
Black and silver is another popular
combination, for early spring.
Mrs. Theodore Havemeyer, Jr., is
wearing a gown of black crepe de Chine,
with a transparent yoke and sleeves one
sheet of shimmering silver paillettes.
Mrs. Albert Stevens is wearing a similar
gown; but the top of her sleeves are
transparent, however, and her waist is
outlined wish a tracery of the same em
broidery that forms the yoke.
In the newest gowns with the trans
parent yoke and sleeves, there is no ap
parent shoulder seam.
The whole transparent part of the
gown must be made to look in one piece,
and seems to be attached to the rest of
the gown at the bust line only.
Separate belts are disappearing more
completely evory day.
Gowdr that are not actually princesse
must be made to appaar so.and belts
must be tabooed.
With the separate waist, separate
belts are still permitted.
Embroideries, never so beautiful, are
to be worn galore, and those "simple
little frocks" that men always love and
speak of so admiringly, unless they bap
pen to have them to pay for, will ba an
other distinctive feature of the spring.
There ie even a spring fashion in veils
the newest is the ugliest, but that's a
detail to most moat women. It has a
cobweb spun in all over it. The cobweb
may be in lace, in gold thread or in che
nille dots, just as you please.
Chenille, Hfter meeting with little
success with us this winter, is coming
into favor with a rush this spring.
Cheniils dote appear on all manner of
fabrics, and are particularly smart on
lace. Chenille fringe will be much
worn, and boas of plaited chiffon edged
with chenille, and with long chenille
fringe falling to the hem of one's gown,

"The introduction of archaic forms,"
remarked the professor of rhetoric, "ia a
vicious weekness of style, and is only
employed to cover some palpable de
fect. Now, Mr. Johnson, in your essay
you have the expression, 'he walked
over the f eld.' What did you intend to
imply ? What k'ea had you in mind ? "
"Well," returned Mr. Johnson, blush
ing and stammering, "Er er 1 I
well, that he 'treked over the velt.' '
"Then, Mr. Johnson," added the pro
fessor, severely, "the next time you wish
to convey the idea of 'treking' say so,
and do not resort to such an out-of-date
expression as 'he walked over the Seld.' "
