Nothing can ever be really fashion
able until certain smart women adopt
and wear it. Designers and fashion
books may suggest, but we Modishes
must approve. Apropos, the spring
veils. The wind and the sun make
them a necessity, but the recent impor
tations are certainly not calculated to
enchance a woman's charms. They are
even uglier than the heavy scroll design
affected by a few a very few last year,
and will in all probability meet a like
fats. The only one at all acceptable by
the woman who is unwilling to consent
to mar her beauty of face is the double
veil of white illusion or tulle with a
single black mesh over it. The idea is
not new, but veils worn this spring dif
fer somewhat from those formerly in
vogue, and are fairly becoming. The new
est veils, however, of white with a very
large and a very small black dot side by
side, are dreadful, and appear as if spot
ted with round bodied bugs with heads
detached. Another white veil, iuat out.
has groups nf black dots iu the shape of
across. These," spread over the face,
are anything but pretty, and no woman
with any claim to good taste will ever
adopt them, no matter by whose ap
proval they are stamped or bow costly
they may be. The Bingle black meshes
are always becoming, and can, of course,
always be obtained, because of the large
demand. They do not conceal too much
and give a softer appearance to the skin.
Most women are extremely particular
about these details of toilet, and having
fixed upon some especial style of veiling
which they know to be becoming, will
have no matter how many "late
importations'' are Haunted 'before them.
Perhaps on this point alone can a beau
tiful woman afford to thoroughly ignore
season changes. The average Ameri
can woman, unfortunately, does not
know bow to wear a veil to the best ad
vantage. She draws it around the hat
and pins it in the back, regardless as to
where the bottom reaches. So long as
it covers her face and falls below her
chin somewhere she is content. I have
seen otherwise perfectly gowned women
veiled with such carelessness during the
past few days. The veil Bhould never
extend below the chin. This is a fixed
law among Parisians. To be really
chic it should come just to the tip of
the nose. If, however, a woman has a
plain lower face she may wear it to
cover the lips, perhaps even the chin,
but it must never, under any circum
stances, fall below it. This spoils the
contour of the face and showB the face
and neck to bad advantage. A French
lady of quality who recently visited
New York, wore a red toque a stun
ning affair and with it a red veil just
reaching the tip of her aristocratic nose.
As her mouth was her best feature, this
suited her exceptionally well. Colored
veils, aside from those in chiffon, may
be used as the Beason advances. Some
are already Bhown in delicate'lavender,
which pale color is the usual forerunner
of more decided shades. Those of black
with purple dots are on view in the
shops, but I have seen none worn. The
intricate, irregular, spider-web like
meshes of black are much worn by girls,
but they are never becoming.
Trimmings and decorative adornments
are very gay and even bizarre. Among
the latter are embroidered peacock
feather designs for evening gowns and
the eilk and gold stitched cretonne ap
plications for both heavy and light ma
terials for day and evening wear. The
all-overs, with a jour machine embroid
ery in gold, are a pronounced feature of
the season's trimmings. Embroidered,
tucked or lace trimmed batiste collars
are still a part of the spring tailor suit.
The Princesse skirt is an innovation of
the spring, but has to be made most
carefully and by a true artist. Nothlog
is more deplorable than one of these
corslet skirts which sets badly. It
must be perfectly boned, and fit like a
glove, or it will be crooked at the fas
tening in the back. These skirts are
shown in summer materials as well as
in cloth. One in pale blue linen has
black eilk bands outlining the top.
This is to be worn with cool shirt waists,
and is rather effective with thin white
blouses. Lace is to be the keynote of
summer fashion. It is still the rage in
London and Paris. The new gowns
Bhow that the mulines, Valenciennes and
point d'esprit are in colors to harmonize
with thaflgmesand- shades of ahe. cos
tume. None is prettier than the fine
batistes and silk grass linens with lace
appliqued designs in colors to match, or
nearly so. It seems s foregone conclu
sion that boleros are to live through an
other season. They are made of all
sorts of materials, those of lace being
unuBually attractive. They appear made
of squares of lace put together with,
groups of small tucks. These squares
are also used for skirts, and are beauti
ful joined in diamond shape. When in
serted on bodice and sleeves they have a
decidedlyemstefceffect.? Miss-Mills wore,
a few days pgo, one of the most attract
ive gowns of the season. It was a deep
cream-colored cloth appliqued with
white lace. With it ehe wore a large
black hat trimmed with blue flowers.
Ecru is extremely popular, especially
for coaching. Miss Barney wore last
week an embroidered crepe of this shade,
with a large black picturesque hut of
soft material.
When Mary sang to him,
I wonder if
His baby hand
stole softly to her lips ,
And, smiling down ,
she needs must stop her song
To kiss and kiss again
his finger tips .
I wonder if,
his eyelids being shut ,
And Mary bending
mutely over him,
She felt her eyes,
as mothers do today ,
For very depth of love
grow wet and dim .
Then did a sudden
presage come to her
Of bitter looks and words
and thorn strewn street?
And did she catch her breath
and hide her face
And shower smothered kisses
on his feet ?
