NEW YORK, June ".At the initial
presentation of the new society play,
"Hearts Aflame," at the Garrlek thea
ter, on Monday 'night, there was a rich.
If not entirely novel, display of gowns
both on and off the stage. In spite of
fulsome advance notices of the frocks
to be worn in the play, those seen in
the boxes and orchestra stalls rather
out-shone thof e behind the footlights...
Miss Dorothy Dorr made her first
entrance in a black gown that was
practically a glittering coat of mall.
The tight spangled Princesse sheath
reached to the floor. To this four or
Ave full flounces of net or chiffon -were
added. These spread over the floor and
made walking a matter of no little
A simple white house gown which
adorned the generously proportioned
Miss Dorr In the third act was quite
effective, though scarcely new in de
sign. It was made of wavy alternate
horizontal strips of silk and net, and
had fifteen or more tiny ruffles about
the bottom of the skirt The bodice
was full, with a white ribbon belt and
short sash, and the sleeves were elbow
length, finishing in white ribbon bows.
A gray gown, made up with heavy
crochet lace of the same color, in which
this actress appeared m the last act,
was the most artistic of her wardrobe.
The bodice was of the heavy lace with
a tiny postilion back, ornamented by
two Jeweled buttons. Four of these
also fastened the front. The sleeves
were tucked and long, but slashed Just
below the elbow to let out a lace puff.
The skirt was tight and of the over
skirt order, with lace insertions. A
black veiling gown with satin trim
mings in the form of squares and
lengthwise strips was rather good. It
had elbow sleeves with chenille and jel
ornament dangling from them. The
hat worn with this was an odd and
rather ridiculous conceit In Patrick
green and white lace and cowslips. Its
brim was turned up all around, and
from the back, where bunches of the
tiny flowers formed the visible crown,
fell long streamers of knotted white
tulle 'and accordton-plalted green chif
fon quite to the bottom of the gown.
It was certainly striking, but it seemed
to cause the lady who wore it no end
of concern at times as to how to dis
pose of it.
A woman In one of the boxes dis
played a distinctly smart and novel
toilette. The sweeping skirt was of
heavy deep cream-colored lace, over
which fell a very long-skirted crash
coat, with lace belt, insertions and
A fine broadcloth of pale blue was
also charming. It had a double Gibson
waist (two folds over the shoulder In
stead of one) of lace, across which
were tiny stitched straps of the cloth, ,
fastened at either end with brilliant
sapphire buttons of small size. The
skirt, which showed the stitched straps
about Its flounce, fitted the figure ex
There were many white cloth coats
in evidence. These -show no color
whatever in the trimming scheme.
They are generally lined with heavy
white satin, and made up elaborately
with coarse lace. In one Instance all
of the sleeves and a wide-spreading
collar were of lace.
Another three-quarter .coat showed a
wide Irish crochet, with points up
ward around the bottom and running
up both loose fronts. Wide lace tabs
fell from the throat to below the waist.

Exquisite fine straw hats, in black
and tan and in black or white alone,
very large and turned up at the left
side, with only one handsome plume
for trimming:, are much in vogue. A
dark tan with a green plume of excel
lent quality was particularly effective.
White is growing more and more
popular for gowns. In the Waldorf
palm-room the other evening nearly all
the women were in white, and most of
them wore large black hats. The ef
fect of these hats, with -the close-fitting
skirts and the odd sleeves, with
"their big puffs and garnishings, is
most picturesque. A partv of girls at.
the Holland House at luncheon the
other day were conspicuous by reason
of their fine Panama, masculine-looking
hats, adorned with black or green
black Italian plumes, similar to those
worn on the hats of Italian army offi
cers. Lady Modish in Town Topics.

An Irish soldier asked his colonel for
a furlough. "I had a letter yesterday
froni my wife, your honor," said Pat
rick, "and she is not very well, and the
children are not very well, and I feel
I ought to go home and see after
"Why, Pat," answered the colonel, "I
got a letter from your wife only this
morning. She says that she and the
children are well, and she wishes I
would not give you any more fur
loughs, because you do not make a
good use of your time when you are
at home Idle."
Patrick departed, with a blank face.
Soon after, the colonel saw' him stand
ing outside the door, seemingly buried
In deep meditation.
"What are you in such a brown
study about, Pat?" he asked.
"I could tell you, your honor," an
swered Pat, "but It would maybe give
"Oh, not a bit," said the colone?,
"speak out; what were you thinking
"Well, your honor, I was just think

here. I have no wife!"
