EVEN THE CHILDREN WILL IJE SOM
BRE CLAD THIS SEASON.
Black promises to be the mast domi
nant note in the wardrobes of the Mo
dishes this season.
American women of fashion have al
ways shown a strong inclination to af
fect gowns of this sombre hue, but the
fashion makers of Paris have never
encouraged the fancy either at home or
abroad. Consequently, a really smart
black frock has been, since time im
memorial, one of the almost impossible
things to And among the model gowns.
Smart black materials have been
imported only in very limited quanti
ties, to the regret of tha many who
would have chosen them had they been
in evidence. But this season nous
avons changt tout cela. Black now
reigns supreme as the keynote of the
smart toilettes of the best dressed

Fashion has a pleasing way with her,
however, of twisting one's point of view
about with a hard, sharp spin that
leaves one so bouleversee on the sub
ject that the only way out seems to be
to agree blindly to whatever she ad
vocates. So we shall, I suppose, prompt
ly dress our feminine tots if we hap
pin to have any in raven coloring.
Apropos of dressing in black, I don't
know anything that has been more re
volutionized by Fashion's decree than
Women used to look their worst when
dressed in mourning under the old
Henriettas and bombazine, made on
ugly, straight, hard lines, with some
stiff bends of crepe as the only per
missible trimiiing, was the popular
conception of mourning. Anything
else more attractive was to be inter
preted as a marK of disrespect and lack
of regret for the dead.
Today the women in mourning are,
if anything, better dressed than the
rest of their world.
AH sorts of exquisite fabrics in black
are to be found, and the eoft French
crepe so much in vogue is tucked and
shirred and turned into endless fasci
nating modes. The white French crepe
is equally smart, and is much worn for
dinners en famille.
The dull black of mourning is pe
culiarly becoming to some women.
Mrs. Perry Belmont, Mrs. Harry
Payne Whitney, and Mrs. Burke-Roche,
for instance, never looked handsomer
than they do now in their sombre
Mrs. Belmont is wearing an unusually
smart hat just now.
It is made entirely of black foliage
and berries. It Hares off and gets over
the face as all the best and latest hats
do. With this bat Mrs. Belmont wears
a thin plain veil of net.
The face veil, with the disfiguring and
unhealthy crepe band across it, is ob
solete, fo far as the woman of fashion is
A word to the wise, in general, and
the unwise, in particular, about the too
eager adoption of the tucked every
thing. This is a mode that is already too
popular. By the time the season is well
advanced it will not be tolerated by the
Many women who are not in mourn

black frocks especially their evening

Mary Sackville was gowned in some

Collars of full ceil jet Btrung on dia
mond bars set in gun metal are the
dernier cri. By the way, to wear with
these quaint semi-decollete bodices the
neatest crepe de chines are in black,
with big splashy designs in white wan
dering over them.
These crepe de chines promise ti
rival, if not outshine, the perennial
foulards that have been in vogue so
long. The crepe de chines have the
virtue of novelty, but the foulards re
tain their virtue of coolness so it seems
likely they will yet "win out."
The smartest foulards are in black
with white polka dots of graduated
Some of the most desirable of these
foulards have borders formed of the
polka dots as well.
None of the really smart women is
wearing her new things yet.
They have learned that by ordering
their gowns leisurely they get much
better results. So this is at the mom

Mrs. Henry Burnett is wearing at
the moment a very good gown in black
beloit. It is made very plainly, a big
collar of exquisite lace being the only
touch that breaks its absolute severity.
With this gown Mrs. -Burnett wears a
bonnet really a bonnet that suggests
the old-fashioned poke. It has two
black ostrich feathers for its only trim
ming, and black maline strings of con
siderable length which tie under the chin
on one Bide and float over the shoulder.
Mrs. "Dick" Trimble is wearing a
gown of purple cloth strapped with
much machine stitching. With Mrs.
Ogden Mills, Mrs. "Dick" Trimble, Mrs.
Townsend Burden and other leaders
affecting purple as they do so success
fully, it looks as though this gorgeous
color would prevail to a great extent,
and so save this from becoming entirely
a Salmagundi season.
