There is a tendency to combine frills
of chiffon or tulle very fancifully with
fur for neckwear Just at this time.
Mink is combined with brown tulle, and
chinchilla with white chiffon, or lace,
or sometimes wit gray. The colors
must always harmonize with the fur
used. Muffs show the frills at the
openings or In a large ornament In the
center. This ornament is often still
further garnished with a buckle or
flowers. Indeed, muffs have never be
fore been been so elaborate. The Bal
timore and Philadelphia contingent are
very much In evidence these delightful
days. One sees them everywhere, and
in all manner of striking costumes
shopping in the morning, driving in the
afternoon and dining out in the eve
ning. A well known Philadelphia matron,
who is enjoying her first Fifth avenue
house this winter, looked charming last
Saturday in an exquisitely tailored
brown silk velvet. The skirt was fairly
plain, of the close-fitting order, and the
coat was not unusual, but it was strik
ingly trimmed with a very fine chin
chilla collar of the Aiglon style. It was
deep and high, but not widespreading.
She carried a large muff of the same
fur, suspended by an old-fashioned
brown shell chain made of large links
such a chain as our great grand-mothers
use to wear. It was odd, but very
pretty, and matched the gown perfect
ly. Her hat was also of chinchilla a
trlcorne turned away from the face
and hair all the way round. It was
much trimmed with brown plumes, and
a veil was worn with It. The veils
worn by modish women Just now are
very thin, and consequently becoming.
The prettiest are simply a plain single
mesh of black or white, with only a
few dots sprinkled sparingly over their
surface. I saw one with a single large
black velvet dot almost the size of a
dime, on the right cheek, and a smaller
on the left. The effect was decidedly
chic. The veil was a single thread fine
black mesh. Another, which can
scarcely be called a veil, as it does not
conceal the face, looks merely like five
or six black lines traversing the visage.
There is one square for each eye, and
others for cheeks and nose and chin.
I do not think It the least bit pretty or
A Baltimore woman, here for the sea
son, wears a black panne velvet. It is
a tailor made, but is very elaborate,
as many of the new suits are. The
skirt Is a Princesse with pleats showing
at the bottom. In the follows made
by this fulness, black silk hand-embroidered
flowers are seen. The bodice
or coat is a short-back affair, but the
fronts are long embroidered tabs but
toned together and falling quite below
the waist line. The entire back is em
broidered in solid black. The gown is
extremely rich, but Is modest withal,
as it is so solemnly black. "When, how
ever, the small coat -was removed it
showed a very gay white satin blouse
embroidered in palest blue chrysanthe
mums with gold centers. This had a
beautiful lace yoke and deep cuffs of
The morning glory design for hand
embroidery has quite a run at present.
It has a grace of its own, and is sim
plicity itself. Black broadcloth and the
zibelines are still favored for street
wear, and are usually made up with
some pretty fur. Velvet squares and
circles appliqued are still seen, and are
a little more elaborate than formerly.
These applications, together with the
great fulness of the skirts at the bot
tom, make the garments dreadfully
heavy. Some of "the new skirts,
trimmed with bands of cloth or velvet,
stitched solidly are really so heavy
that a delicate woman's strength is
overtaxed In wearing them. The shag
gy weaves are often trimmed with
thick braid and metal French buttons.
They are very effective, but so heavy
as to almost condemn them in the eyes
of the sensible woman, especially if
she walks any, and walking has be
come quite a fad with the fashionables.
Within two blocks on the Avenue one
day last week I met no less than half
a dozen well known members of the
four hundred, all briskly afoot. Per
haps the fear of increasing embonpoint
is responsible for this. There is noth
ing like pedestrlanlsm to reduce one.
It is far and away superior to dieting,
and much pleasanter. We modlshes do -not
wear short skirts in town. We
walk in the loviliest of tailor-mades,
with long skirts, held gracefully to es
cape the pavements. A violet cloth
costume I saw the other day had a
plain, tight fitting coat with metal but
tons and short tabs in the back. Opos
sum furs were worn with it, and were
unusually pretty. Despit its growing
popularity, I cannot like this fur. It
was much worn at the horse show, and
is said to be as popular abroad as here.
Ostrich feather muffs and boas are
favored for the warmer days. A
broadcloth of darkest brown, with
brown feather muff and long boa, was
very attractive, worn by a blonde a
few days ago. These feather confec
tions are shown In pale evening shades,
the muffs are perfectly enormous.
They add a finish to an evening toilet
unattainable by any other means.

The best of this story is that It is
not a press agent yard. Miss Phoebe
Davis, leading woman in Brady's
"Way Down East," really did go In
the lion's cage at Buffalo and take out
the cub. In witness whereof Frank
Bostock in admiration presented her
with the cub and she always carries it
around with her, now as a mascot. The
lion was the real thing, too. We got
this story from an unprejudiced eye
witness. It really did not come from
Channing Pollock, Miss Davis' ener
getic press representative, although, of
course, it was not his fault that It
didn't. The truth happened to get
ahead of his this time, that's all.
