NEW YORK, April 5. The shops are
having their spring openings, and so
deliclously dainty are the gowns dis
played that even unimpressionable
mankind stands in awed admiration.
A stunning model shown at a lead
ing Broadway emporium is a long,
large, graceful affair, made primarily
of delicate pin-striped blue-and-wnite
taffeta. With this Is combined a very
line Irish crochet lace, forming a
flounce about the long skirt and fin
ishing the full sleeves from the elbow
to the hand. Alternate ruchings and
folds of chiffon join the skirt proper
to the deep flounce, and supply the ful
ness of the front bodice, over which
groups of fine tassels fall to the belt.
This belt Is of crushed silk, moulded to
the figure, and ends in chiffon sashes
having knots about a foot or a foot and
a half from the bottom of the skirt.

Sate new importations, and are the
acme ef grace. Women always wel
come ttitBJiowing accessory, and this
season the sashes are particularly ef
fective. A costume of a coarsely woven pink
'ilk material, made with close fitting
skirt, tight about the hips and back and
with a batiste bodice, shown at a re
cent opening, suited my fancy to per
fection. The sleeves to the elbow, and
the front and back of the bodice, were
covered .with a sort of fitted cape of
batiste" of exquisite quality. Over this
large white silk wheels were embroid
ered. Valenciennes lace was used for
trimming the batiste, and squares of
it were let in over the collar as far
as the bust. Prom the elbow to the
wrist the sleeves, which were of the
pink silk, were very full. The lower"
fulness of all these sleeves Is exag
gerated over that of the winter styles.
Another charming yet simple gown
is of a silky -white thin goods, with
wreaths of old rose colored flowers by
way of pattern. The wreaths are
about the size of a twenty-flve-cent
piece, and -are quite close together.
The entire gown Is made over old rose
taffeta. The skirt fits closely to th
knee, whence spring two graduated
and tucked flounces, the tucks rising
perpendicularly. The novelty of this
costume is Its old-fashioned scalloped
trimming. Above the top ruffle a
three-Inch strip of silk is F-calloped
out exactly as we have seen It in old
daguerreotypes, each scallop neatly
piped at top and bottom. The waist
has a deep round yoke of white lace,
edged with a frill of the scallops of old
rose taffeta falling over the bust. The
goods are then gathered full into the
wide crushed silk belts with bias sash
ends In the back. These latter are not
very long, and are ornamented and
fastened at the belt line with two
rhinestone buttons. The sleeves,
which are short, coming only to the
elbow, are finished in the scallops. It
was altogether one of the oddest and
most artistic creations shown in the
entire collection of perhaps a hundred
or more.
Alternate foot flounces of rare laces
and chiffon with ruchings at the top,
and often with interfacings of baby
ribfeea, falling over them, are seen on
meat of the smart evening gowns. A
French importation shows a skirt yoke
of this interlaced or latticed baby blue
ribbons, sprinkled with tiny French
knots where the ribbons meet. This
yoke is very short, and from It falls a
soft and clinging skirt, with a deep
train, the latticed ribbons marking the
beginning of the skirt's flare. A wide
sash of hand-painted ribbon of Dres
den design completes the skirt The
tiny ribbons are again used for the
pointed collar and for the tops of the
sleeves.
A white organdie I saw was won
derfully trimmed. It had garlands
about three Inches long, of very tiny
pink roses, festooned from the top to the
bottom of the skirt, which was on a
delicate blue silk slip. The bodice,
which was tucked all over, was very
full, and had a cluster of roses not
far from the belt, instead of near the
shoulder, as heretofore has been the
custom. This model had a short
knotted sash outlined in roses. Black
renaissance designs, rather large, let
Into a plain black net foundation, made
a pretty gown of a more matronly
style. This was made over a white silk
slip. It was elaborate, but not partic
ularly new.
One of .the most charming toilettes,
a New York creation, was a blue-gray
canvas veiling made with a sheath-like
skirt, -traversed from top to bottom by
narrow taffeta bands of the same color.
The short" fancy coat had bias Bilk
talis in the back, springing from a
handsome buckle. These were faced
with pale canary silk, as were all the
front tabs which fell from the bu3t
Some Very costly Mechlin lace showed
on the yoke and at the wrist. Below
the elboV the sleeves were simply enor
mous. Above this they were tucked In
large folds, all of which were let loose
a little below the elbow, producing a
very long and loose effect to the wrist,
where the fulness was gathered Into a
lace cuff.
It is most difficult to choose from the
wealth of lovely materials this spring.
The -canvas veilings shown are such
lovely shades, that you instantly de
cide to have one. Then the fine French
voile is produced, and you are quite
won over to that. Then they produce
the bareges, which leave you hopeless
ly at sea, wishing some friend would
do the choosing In .your stead. "What
is called voile Is merely a finer qual
ity of the veiling labeled with the'
French name. Lady Modish In Town

Harry, who was leading, stopped,
and motioned them to be stllL A pe
culiar harsh staccato call came from
some bird in their front, followed by
another, and another. This was ac
companied by a steady sharp hum
ming, which reminded Ralph of the
noise made by a typewriter when the
carriage is dragged over the teeth In
Its rear. Peering cautiously through a
fringe of catclaw,- they saw a small
open glade not ten yards across, and
In its center a huge mottled rattle
snake was colled, ring upon ring, its
wicked dark head raised six- inches,
and waving slowly to and fro. Its
small eyes gleamed like carbuncles,
and Its tail vibrated so rapidly that
the tip could not be seen. It was in
an extremity of anger. Five feet away
its head lowered nearly to the grass,
its bill extended. Its wings half raised,
and sharply elbowed, a chaparral
cock hopped slowly up and down. A
battle to the death was on, and the
boys watched It stralningly, Harry
with never-falling interest, the broth
ers almost In terror. They had never
before seen the dreaded rattler.
Like a flash of light, the snake
launched itself forward, and its head
struck the sward a good seven feet
from the spot where it had been
colled; but with equal rapidity the
cock had leaped a yard aside. No hu
man eye could follow this stroke or its
avoidance. One instant the reptile was
Punched, and the bird nearly station
ary. In half the next Instant the rep-

tile was at full length, and the bird
out of danger.
It is the weakness of the rattler that
it must coll before it can resume the
attack. It endeavored immediately to
recoil, but was not fast enough. With
a lightning-like spring, the palsano
alighted squarely upon its neck, two
Inches below its head. The sharp bill
descended twice. Then It hopped two
yards away and uttered a squawk of
triumph. The rattler threw itself into
a spiral and struck blindly Its full
length. This It did twenty times, coil
ing and springing with inconceivable
rapidity. Both eyes were destroyed.
Its thuds were audible yards away.
Always it hissed venomously. The in
creasing slowness of its motions show
ed coming exhaustion. Then, after a
spring, it lay stretched for a second
or two. In that time the chaparral
cock, which had not ceased to dance
about and call loudly, fastened once
more upon its neck, and drove its bill
into the brain. There was a quiver of
the long body no more.
"That was worth looking at, eh?"

and turning over the snake with his
foot The road-runner instantly van
