HIE COURIER. 11 r U a y t FASHIN LETTER. 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 used. 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 roses. 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 mauve. All the newest and smartest hats tit close to the head, and have low, straight lines. The cache peigie is a thing of the past. Ostrich feathers are more worn than they have been for jears, and the osprey is seen not at all, except in odd orna ments of the hair. The newest of there are powdsred with small, floe Rhinestones, and ere much more extravagant in size and price thau heretofore. 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 children's hair. 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 have arrived, but it is a foregone conclu 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 as possible. 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 The mitten sleeve I spoke of recently is becoming a marked favorite in spring's fancy. For thoater and dinner gowns these sleeves are often made in a lattice-work of jet, of pearls, of chenille and beads in fact, in any and all possible combi nations of things that lend themselves to the lattice-work effect. That they must have if you would be truly Modish. Of course, theso sleeves must be worn without lining. Melodrama is hardly the place that one usually looks for ideas for smart clothes, but there are some frocks in "Hearts are Trumps that really do strike the right note in spring's fashion an them. Amelia Bingham's gown of pale blue crepe de Chine, embroidered all over in the same color, accentuates the fact that embroidered chepe de Chine gowns are to be much worn ibis Eea son. A net gown of yellow white she wears 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 lined w th a border of tucking; between these slashes are loops of cream Cnan tilly insertion. 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 and transparent. The bodice is also transparent about the neck, and theie is no collar. Collars are conspicuous by their ab sence on all Miss Bingham's gowns, as well as on those of others in the cast. lot us hope this argues that we are to have at last a collarless summer, which sl?4tV jfl y:f'or&Li People Havte No Trouble In getting- what they want at the Good Luck Grocery.

They are vastly becoming and are more practical than they sound. Mrs. Oliver Harriman ordered one to take with her to the South of France, and it was charming. It was in black Chantilly lace rose pattern. The lace was dotted all over in small chenille dots. It fell in long straight lines to the feet, where it flared slightly. About the shoulders it finished in a capuchon, and fastened with loDg ends of chenille that fell to its very hem. None of the model gowns for spring BURLINGTON ROUTE.
