The new .spring fabrics those sent
in advance as a forerunner of the sea
sonare rhiflly dotted dimities anil
All are elaborate, many of the skirts
being embroidered all over. And
flounces! There are from one to six
of these made as full as possible, and
the skirts almost stand alone. The
rallies, too, are embroidered about the
edge, and hemstitched where they join
the skirt. Filet lace and insertion are
also shown on the new robes, which
come ready to ut on the silk slip.
One of these half-made garments Is of
silky line linen literally covered with
a coarse lllet lace. It winds about the
entire skirt and edges the wide, grad
uated flounce at the bottom. The
bodice what one can see of it before
it is put together has points of the
lace all over from top to bottom. Tans
and black-and-white in combination
seem to have the lead, if we can judge
by the samples.
On New Year's Kve the crowds at
the fashionable dining places exhibited
some ravishing wraps. The gowns be
neath them were not so wonderful, but
the wraps were striking. One with a
Worth label that rested beside my own
was the most exquisite thing of its
kind I have ever seen. It was pri
marily of brocaded silk velvet of su
perior texture. The ground was a deli
cate cream in color, while the roses
with which it was strewn were of un
natural soft tints of bride and blush
roses, shading into delicate azure. The
cloak was half-fitting and long. About
the bottom was a chiffon Hounce a foot
or more in depth, edged with one ruch
lng upon another. This chiffon had in
It all the faint tints of the rainbow,
and upon the rich material which com
posed the wrap was most effective.
There were four of these full llounces,
two of plain cream-colored chiffon and
two of the rainbow variety. About the
hand fell six of the full flounces from
the botom of the wide sleeve. One of
thes. was of Russian lace. The-e
llounces, with their variety of lace and
chiffon, outlined the entire garment.
They garnished the wide collar and
adorned both sides of the front open
ing. To this trimming a narrow band
of sable was added. The wrap was
lined throughout with bright pink
It seems now to be Quite proper to
use panne or highly colored silks for
linings, making the inside of the wrap
almost as attractive as the exterior.
Another imported wrap had rosebuds
of delicate pink and white upon the
lining of the sleeves, where they fell
away from the elbow to the hand, anil
the effect was charming.
A novel black-and-white cloak of
New York make was over white panne.
It was made of velvet ribbon and fine
black lace alternating in longitudinal
stripes. It was very handsome, but it
lacked the Indefinite chic charm of the
A short sable coat had most remark
able sleeves. They were very wide from
the elbows, almost Chinese, and had a
ruffle of fur at the hand. This served
as a background for many lovely lace
ruffles. The effect was particularly
good when the wearer raised her
hands to remove her veil.
A white broadcloth had trimmings
entirely of white chiffon ruffles and
ruchings, and was lined with sky blue.
Upon a recent Broadway shopping
expedition I encountered two costumes
which really merit attention. One was
a black velvet serpentine skirt, very
long (a serpentine skirt is ridiculous
unless it is very long), and a white
silk blouse peeping out from the open
coat. It was of most carefully selected
chinchilla. The coat was short, with
bishop sleeves and steel buckles. There
was lace about the wide, fiat collar and
down the front. The hat was perfect
ly flat, black, and trimmed with any
quantity of tiny deep-red rosebuds. It
was worn well over the face.
The other costume was of gray and
black shepheid's plaid, trimmed with
stitched black silk bands and small
steel butons. The coat was of medium
length, and the furs which matched It
so stunningly were black lynx. The
muff was huge, and the long, wide boa
reached to the knees. A blnck hat with
a white plume completed a decidedly
fetching outfit. Town Topics.
The Neatest "Woman in Our Town
As Diogenes with his lamp searched
for an honest man, so I with my note
book searched for the neatest woman
"This is an easy task," I thought, as
I made this entry in my note-book.
9 a. m. Monday .Have started this
morning to find the neatest woman in
our town. Am quite positive it lies
between Mrs. Black and Mrs. Brown.
Will call on Mrs. Black first.
5 p. m. Monday Am convinced that
Mrs. Brown deserves the prize. Mrs.
Black greeted me spotlessly and be
comingly dressed, but when she took
me Into the kitchen to see her new
range I noticed a pile of unwashed
dishes in the sink. Will call on Mrs.
S p. m. Monday My call on Mrs.
Brown was unsatisfactory. When I en
tered her house the effect was neatness
Itself, except Mrs. Brown. There was
a spot on the front of her dress and
her hair looked very untidy.
S p. m. Tuesday Am quite convinced
that there is no neatest woman in our
town. Kach is neat in some things and
careless about others. Kach has some
untidy point. Will investigate further.
C p. m. Wednesday After many calls
and much effort, I have come to the
conclusion that the neatest woman in
town is dead. Common consent pro
nounces Mrs. Gray the neatest woman.
In her will she left $152.52 to pay some
one fifteen cents a week for six years
to clear the space around her grave
of weeds and to scrub off her tomb
stone with sapolio. This was explicit
ly stated. Her aversion to dirt is shown
in her last words. As she was fast
sinking into unconsciousness she mur
mured: "How can I bear to turn to
dust." JANE YOUNG.
