Isady Modish on Coming Modes.
Hats imported for spring are the last
dominant note in the warfare between
the seasons, and, if I mistake not, will
prove a more potent factor in establish
ing the supremacy of spring than all the
blizzards old winter can collect.
Never has headgear been more charm
ing, more varied or more original.
Fruits as well ps flowere are lavishly
Grapes, in all colors ind tints, are
most in vogue, though cherries are
nearly as popular.
Toques made entirely of colored leaves
with a big clump of roses on one side
that Ehade on the tame coloring, are, per
haps, the newest and smartest of all the
flower hats. Mrs. Ogdea Mills has
ordered one of these tcques in pinkish
red leaves, with a bunch of deep pink
Amelia Bingham, in "Hearts are
Trumps," wears one of these toques
done in dark mauve leaves, with the
bunch of roses in lighter shades of

The newest of there are powdsred

Their importance increases constantly
as the obnoxious "theater hat'' fades
more and more into oblivion.
Miss Csroline Duer is wearing a very
smart arrangement in black and white
malino just now. With the influx of
spring hats, one naturally looks for some
variation in the way of doing the hair.
But as yet it is safe to say there is no
radical departure from the present
mode, except that it is considered in
Paris very smart to drag the hair well
forward on one side, so that it shades
the face considerably.
Some of the Parisienne leaders are
wearing a bow of ribbon tied through
their hair on top, and falling on one
side, as one seee the ribbon bow3 on
The hair is not waved as much, or as
regularly, either, as we wear it.
The whole idea is to soften the nature
of the hair as much as possible.
The indiscriminate use of Jeweled
combs, which has been so overdone with
us, is absolutely tabooed by the lately
modish Parisienne. Plain combs for
the side and front of the hair are still
worn, and are really necessary to hold
the hair in its soft outline, but they
must be placed so as to be as little en

sion that all skins are to be tucked and
pleated in endless shapes and forms.
The one thing to Le deeirf d is to dis
pose of the fullnessover the hips in such
a manner that they will Lot be enlarged,
while the width of the skirt about the
bottom must be exaggerated as much
These skirts are very graceful and
most becoming to the vtry slender fig
ures, but how, oh ! how, will Madame
Avoirdupois look in them ?
Miss Eveljn Burden is wearing a very
smart gray gown that has theskirt done
in pleats somewhat on this idea. An
other new tucked model has fine tuck-)
in clusters on theskirt to the knee only.
From the knee it falls in soft fullness.
On the bodice the tucks continuo on
the same lines as the skirt to just above
the bust line, where the fullness they
form is held in place by the collar, which
is finished with a bow with short loops
and ends that almost reach the waist
line and finish in silk fringe

over in the same color, accentuates the

has some new touches. The skirt is in
tine tucks that fit closely ovar the hips
and flare out at the bottom, where they
are slashed into squares that are out

these slashes are loops of cream Cnan
Underneath the slashing there is a
full rutlle of tne net, edged with tucK-ing.
Ihe bodice is done in the tucked net,
and over that is a little lace bolero that
falls from a square yoke of insertion to
the waist line in the back, and in front
the lace is so arranged that it forms a
bow and falls in long ends to the hem of
the skirt. The sleeves are in lace, long

transparent about the neck, and theie
is no collar.
Collars are conspicuous by their ab

well as on those of others in the cast.

They are vastly becoming and are

Mrs. Oliver Harriman ordered one to

It was in black Chantilly lace rose

It fell in long straight lines to the feet,
