NEW YORK, May 17. Among the
oddest conceits of the season are the
pointed felt or straw automobile hats
with isinglass visor attached. 'The ob
ject of the visor Is. of coupae, to pro
tect the face of the wearer be It fair
or otherwise, from the dust and sun,
the hats being brimless. You encounter
ponderous electric touring cars careen
ing down the Avenue, on the way to
country homes or clubs, every hour of
the day, and the singular get up of the
'women occupants is the source of
open-mouthed wonderment to the
street gamin. The costumes are truly
funny looking, especially when the
wind fills out the voluminous pongee or
silk dust coats with which the gowns
Pongee grows more and more popu
lar as a Spring and Summer fabric It
comes embroidered and non-embroidered
In various dyed shades, and In Its
own lovely natural color, a soft ecru.
Sometimes it is embroidered in pink
coral or in tiny turquoise-blue stones. A.
charming model has "pinch tucks"
by which name the finest possible tucks
are known over the whole skirt; coral
being used only In the trimming about'
the foot. But the bodice, particularly
the front, is one mass of the pink
gems, worked in elaborate design, on a
fewadattoB of ecru filet lace.
Them there are pongee shirtwaist
BW&tm lajifeHBdance. and a few stunning
taHer Bade. One of these has aa
enormously wide-sleeved coat, very
'short, and with a full bloused waist
beneath. The skirt Is sheath-like in
fit, with a deep fullness at the bottom.
The white gowns, with their diapha
nous elbow sleeves and blouses, have
given a new Idea to a clever manufac
turer of Jewelry who has a little
French) shop on Broadway near Twen
tieth street The idea Is to have jewel
ed collars and bracelets to match. They
are to be worn with low-necked or col
larless wash gowns that have short
sleeves. A debutante at Sherry's diner
de luxe on Sunday evening wore the
first set I have seen, and It was simply
beautiful. She was a blonde, and very
plump. Her gown was of pure white
crepe-de-chlne and white, heavy lace.
The lace finished In its own irregular
design at the base of the throat, about
which was the necklace or collar I
don't know Its real name. It was made
of Etruscan gold chains, with four
large ovals of turquoise matrix at In
tervals. There was a very Jargeoval
in front, one on each side and one in
the back, where the necklace or collar
fastened. The bracelet, worn on the
left arm, midway between elbow and
wrist, was a facsimile "of the collar.
It Is the period of extremes of fash
ion, it seems to me. For instance, we
either cover up the hair entirely with
wide Chantilly laces and scarfs draped
about our hats, or else dress the hair
elaborately and don a tiny capote of
flowers. Two becoming new styles In
hairdressing are the low, loose knot
and the Du Barry perpendicular braid.
With the low knot the front hair is
parted exactly in the middle, and is
very loose and fluffy at the sides, held
by a long and heavy new side-comb.
The knot Itself is worn very low, and
Is round and symmetrical. It is an ex
cellent style for regular features. The
Du Barry Is very much In evidence
everywhere. It Is newer, and we do
like to try new things. Besides, for a
heavy head of hair it is most effective
and so easy to arrange. All the hair is
merely braided in school-girl fashion,
then turned up over the entire back of
the head, spread out and pinned
snugly. The sides and front must" be
fluffed becomingly about the face, and
a small shaded silk chou tucked In
toward the left side.
The bodice Is primarily of wavy
tucks, with the loveliest of fine Irish
crochet by way of yokes and cuffs. The

skirt is a combination of lace and
tucks, beautifully finished at the foot.
The most artistic handiwork is shown
in the method of applying the lace to
the material, and vjce versa. A Broad
way actress-manager, one of the show
iest women on the stage, is appearing
nightly in a gown that is the envy of
every feminine theatregoer. It Is made
of some clinging soft white material,
Prlncesse in cut, and shows some deli
cate green hand-embroidery in curious
little designs at odd places on skirt and
bodice, and in tiny ruffles In front
from the bust to a little below the
waist line. It is a most unusual and
impressive design. Lady Modish in
A funny fatality seems to inspire the
opponent)? of equal rights for wotnen
to use the most Incongruous arguments
possible. A United States senator of
notoriously profligate life, objects to
woman suffrage on the ground that it
would injure "the purity and delicacy
of womanhood." The representatives
of the liquor interest object for fear It
might impair the happiness of the
home. Rev. Edward Everett Hale, who
has just celebrated his eightieth birth
day, objects to women's voting be
cause they cannot fight; and Mrs. A.
J. George of Massachusetts, who
spends much time traveling about lec
turing, objects on the ground that "a
woman's place is at home."
It suggests a story of the old days
before imprisonment for debt was abol
ished In England. The rumor of a
French Invasion had thrown the whole
country Into excitement. An Impris
oned debtor was talking through the
bars of his window with a street beg
gar and a soldier who was consider
ably more than "half seas over."
"If the French effect a landing on
British soil, what will become of our
liberties?" cried the Imprisoned debtor.
"Yes, and of our property?" echoed
the tattered beggar. "Ob, d n our
liberty .and our property!" vociferated
the drunken soldier, "What will be
come of our religion?" Laura A.
