of valuable jewelry, and one or two re-
cent robberies and attempt at robbery
have caused a good deal of the best stuff
to be stowed away in jeweler's safes.
The ban has, to some extent, been re-
moved from silk stockings by one of the
season's innovations. The woman who
wants to wear silk stockings with her
walking ehoee, but can't afford to walk
through a pair every time she goes out
can now buy silk stockings with cotton
feet, beels and toes. The cotton is not
high enough to show above even the
lowest slipper, and the durability of the
stocking is mightily increased.
The belles of Atlanta claim the credit
of having originated a crusade against
the neck-disfiguring high stock collars
which fashion has inflicted upoa its de
votees. More than that, they assert that
they are responsible for popular rever
sion to the graceful, low-necked, short
sleeved gown of ante-bellum days in the
South. These latter gowns are every
where in evidence now, while only a
short while ago no girl was

not Eweltering in kid coverings.
While their Northern sisters were
meekly bowing to the stock collar de
cree and heaping discomfort on them
selves, Georgia's fair daughters were in
open revolt. They would not wear the
hideous stock, they declared, and some
among them who are social leaders be
gan appearing upon the streets in gowns
of their own designing without any
collars at all, except for a little ruching
or ruffle at the neck, and with fair arms
bared to the elbow. The gowns were
made of airy, filmy material, and the ef-
f ect was an almost instantaneous hit.

Lace, if such a thing were possible, is
more fashionable than ever. Some
charming toilets are made altogether of
ribbon and lace, there being a decided
fancy for ribbons of the Pompadour per
suasion, flowered to look like old tapestry.
Ribbon toilets, the ribbons combined not
only with lace but with other transpar-
ent materials such as gauze, sheen lin
ens, and diaphanous batistes, the beautr
of the garment being enhanced by the
use of the lace, are much admired.
The blouse of the moment is fashioned
of lace. Lace dreeses, coats, hats, even
stockings and gloves, are the order of the
There has also been a decided inclina
tion of late towards trimming lace with
silk. For a long time the silk gown has
been incomplete without a lace yoke, or
bolero, and under-sleevee, and it is a
species of revenge which ordains that
the latest novelty should be that of rich
silk for the yoke and undersleeves of lace
robee. Brocades and embroidered silk
or hand-painted satins of the softest,
thickest Kinds are tne proper choice for
Strenuous City Life.
