NEW YORK, April 12. Now that
tiny blades of graps are peeping
through the mould- and buds on the
trees are swelling toward the bursting
point, the feminine mind turns to
spring millinery, with all Its vernal
daintiness of color and texture.
Flower hats and velvet frocks are a
typically seasonable combination. At
a box party a few evenings ago, I- saw
worn with a gown of white panne with
lare garniture a large picture hat
made entirely of gardenias.
The big flat hats of the shepherd
ess style of last season, slightly modi
fied, are shown again by some of the
best Fifth avenue shops. One of these
of tan colored chiffon fully plaited over
crown and double brim, has a wreath
of tiny pale pink roses in the opening
between the brims. A scarf of cream
colored lace is wound artistically about
the low crown, with ends trailing over
the hair in the back.
A street and afternoon model, which
is sure to be a favorite, is a large, low
toque turned away from the hair at the
aides A. .pretty one, of red chiffon,
has cherries In different shades of red
dangling In little groups about the
brim front, sides and Tack and the
effect is admirable. Grapes and rais
ins are also used in this manner. In
the back this model has a large bow
of three-lach red velvet ribbon droop
ing well over the hair. It is made in
what is popularly called a single bow
knot, with three loops on the crown
of the hat, and the ends trailing. This
same style bow is exceedingly effective
made of black velvet ribbon upon a
white hat. All the hats are much
trimmed, lace appearing nearly aways.
Veils, too, as trimming, will be more
popular than ever. A round and fairly
large hat of white straw has a frill
of blue-colored lace falling over its
entire brim and trailing almost to the
shoulder at one side well toward the
back. Evening hats still show enor
mously long and full plumes. The ropes
of pearls. large and small, of which I
spoke some time ago, are also much
In favor. The foliage hats in the new
shapes are charming. One seen on
the Avenue this week was composed
entirely of currants and leaves, and
the combination of red and green was
most fetching. The back of this hat,
wriich was a modified toque, was
adorned with a long bow of green vel
vet. Ivy and laurel are still seen, but lit
tle trimming is used with them, since
they are quite effective enough alone.
Among the stiff hats light straws of
neutral tints decided colors will not
be very popular worn well over the
face and turned up at the sides, are
favored. Wings, usually white or
black, are employed by way of side
trimming on these models. The cut
white felt hats, with crushed black
silk or chiffon ornamentation, are still
seen, and will be worn well Into the
spring by those who dc not care to
"force the season."
Mrs. Clarence Mackay, who is not
of this class, drove In the Park and
down Fifth avenue, while all the town
was snow-clad, wearing an airy affair
of. black tulle on a transparent wire
frame, resplendehtly garnished with a
high and sv.eeping Paradise plume.
Parasols are to be of medium size,
but a little larger if anything than
last year. Those of pongee, with
heavy lace let In, appear well with the
new pongee gowns. Delicate silks are
shown, with narrow black velvet rib
bon running from the top of the para
sol to half its depth. Flounces are
to be used, too; but they must be of
chiffon, or lace, and never of anything
so heavy as silk.
The heavy coarse crash, which makes
such novel spring coats when com
bined with thick filet lace, is also to
be used for parasols. ThlB is so
porous that is generally lined. A com
plete crash outfit is offered at one of
the Bhops. Including a coat, short and
loose fitting, with yoke and deep cuffs
of lace; a tricorne hat, trimmed with
rosettes of the crash, and biscuit-colored
crushed ribbons, and a parasol,
lined with bright biscuit-colored silk.
Sunshades have never been so pro
fusely trimmed as they are this sea
son. One of blue and white silk has
roses and leaves of exquisite Duchesse
lace let in all over it, while another
has a trailing rose vine, with flowers
and leaves wound Irregularly about
it, over a pale pink surface. Many
are hand-embroidered In beautiful and
artistic designs. These are very cost
ly. Those of the more ordinary sort
show the top of the parasol of one
shade of silk a solid color, perhaps
with a three, four or six-inch border
of some different hue. The summer
will mark the return to general favor
of the dainty silk mlt. Those reach
ing to the elbow are exquisitely woven,
and the -patterns are lovelier than ever
before. These charming accessories are
most appropriate with the elaborate
parasols and flower and fruit-covered
hats of the season. Lady Modish in

Lot of tbe Waiter
Uot fiapp? One
With this emphatic and unconven
tional negative a Lincoln waiter ex
pressed unqualified disapproval when
asked whether or not he adored his
occupation. He didn't. Furthermore
he said he wasn't going to follow It
any longer than he had to and most
other waiters would say the same
"Students drag our wages down," he
continued. "They work for their
board. "We-have to have wages. Some
times they shorten hours for us but
more generally their working Just
makes us put in the same time with
less chance of getting better wages.
kThe business has no advancement
in it. There is some money in restaur
ant keeping in large towns but as a
usual thing a man needs a first class
business education and the men who
sling hash haven't got it. They are

of thirteen to fourteen hours, makes

Sundays. When there is anything go

ever and we have to work.
"No sir, there are no veteran waiters
In Lincoln like you read about in the
story books. One of the men who has
worked the longest at the food serving
business quit a few days and started
to turning cranks on the street cars.
And he has got a better job, too.
"As for myself I am here until I
can get something better. I went west
not long ago and didn't strike what I
expected. Rather than not work I be

and I do not care how soon this flick

"Most men throw it into the waiters
unless they are right good fellows and
then I rather imagine that they look
down on us. Several times since I have
worn the white Jacket I have been
tempted to reach across the counter

shooting it into some waiter. Rush,
hurry, kicks on the food, God knows
what all we have everything of this
kind. The wages are bad, too, and this
fact does not make us in much better
humor when some one complains about
the slowness of our movements.
"There is no union in Lincoln any
more. It disbanded months ago. The
members of the profession are chang

work .long enough to maintain a union.
It -was' this reason, they tell me, that
caused the organization to go down."
