MEXICAN HANDWORK TURNOVER IS EFFECTIVE OVER A BLACK STOCK. IACE AND FACiOTTED COLLAR WHICH HAS A SHALLOW TO KB. STOCK OF SATIN FOLDS AND LACE. A DUCHESSB LACE COLLAR WHICH GIVES LONG SHOULDER EFFECT.
THE choice of neckwear Is a sure in
dication of taste and an item of
dress potent to make or mar a cos
tume. The most charming coiffure, the
most aristocratic features, and the most
delicately rose-tinted complexion may be
coarsened by the Juxtaposition of slipshod
neck arrangement- On the other hand, a
dainty stock can redeem an entire toilette
from the crime of mediocrity.
Even the -woman whose tastes incline
toward masculine cut and finish in her
garments cannot resist the attractions of
dainty neckwear. The eternal feminine
asserts Itself In spite of education or en
vironment. The business woman who Is forced by
reason of economy or the rules of prac
ticability to adopt the plainest of garb,
finds In the stock her only outlet for the
love of the beautiful. With her. loo. the
taste for high mannish linen collars seems
to have passed away with the styles of
other seasons. The only stiff linen collars
which the shops are showing are low af
fairs with a turnover. Often this Is brok
en into rounded tabs, or ornamented by a
line of hemstitching or openwork cm
broidery. The old-time stillness Is en
tirely lost. A morning walk along the
boulevards shows that even these collars
are worn with thin, fluffy wash ties of
linen and lawn. The effect Is decidedly
Cuffs come to match these linen collars,
and they are suitable for either morning
or shopping wear. The touch of white at
wrist and throat relieves the monotony
of the one-tone linen costumes. Often
the cuffs and collar are stitched In color
to match the gown. The effect Is very
good, and carries out the idea, so much
sought after this season that every article
of a toilette has been made with the dis
tinct purpose of matching. The Tule is an
old and valuable one In Paris, where the
humblest grlsette knows how to impart
individuality to her everyday dress. One
tone costumes, with perfect matching or
skillful contrast of colors. Is her max
im. Her example is now being followed
by the women of every nation, and this
Summer brings the stock particularly un
der its sway.
White is the most fashionable color for
the Summer stock, although colors arc
also used. -But in the latter cases the
stock or collar is only Intended for use
with a, particular gown.
A wealth of handwork Is expended on
the white stocks and collars. Drawn
work, lace applique and insertion and
hand embroidery make them things of
In all the white collar and cuff sets per
haps the simplest are bands of fine linen
hemstitched on all sides. The Inner spaco
is often entirely filled by a drawn work
pattern. Beautiful models are coming
from Mexico, and clever fingers are imi
tating them in all countries. These are
intended to be worn over plain stocks and
cuffs of the dress material. They are
kept In place by small pins of gold or
silver, which come in sets of three for the
purpose. The less conspicuous the pin the
Equally simple linen and lawn collars
and cuffs have fine pleats for their only
ornamentation. On some the fine pleats
run straight up and down, on others they
run around the collar, and still again they
are arranged diagonally. Pleated effects
obtain in the fine lawn "Judge" collar.
The long "Judge" stole Is finely pleated.
Small white pearl or linen crocheted but
tons make an effective garniture between
These "Judge" collars are but a recent
outgrowth of the popular stole collar.
In fact, the stole forms the motif of
nearly all the Summer collars. It Is mod
ified in shape and multiplied indefinitely
to such good purpose that one woman
may be possessed of an almost Innumer
able number of stocks and collars without
having a single duplicate.
The craze for coarse mesh lace, which
has pervaded every other article of dress,
seems powerless in the realm of neck
wear. If real lace Is shaped Into a turn
over or stock, it is of the finer thread va
rieties. Point de "Venise is a -favorite for
the turnovers. Many of the lace stocks
are continued down in tabs and points
to give the effect of a shallow yoke. This
fashion does away with the neck line, and
will prove a boom to the woman with
the short neck.
A still further development of the lace
collar Is the deep round or pointed yoke
collars which arc attached to a standing
collar. They give the long-shouldered ef
fect, which must be attained at all costs.
Sometimes they are woven In one piece of
point de Venise, guipure or Van Dyck
laces. More often they . are hand-made
from strips of lace Insertion, joined by
fagotting or other fancy stitching. A
pretty effect Is obtained by using colored
silk for the fagotting or stitching.
These deep cape collars, whether they
have a standing collar or not, are useful
for turning a decollete waist into one
suitable for street wear, in which case
they are fastened up the back with fancy
pins, or the collar may only serve Its
original purpose of adornment, and then
is merely fastened at the throat in front.
French cambric canvas, lawn and linen
form the foundations of those collars and
cuffs which are In some color or embroid
ered In color. Care must be taken that
the color suits the color scheme of the
gown with which they are to be worn.
An effective hand-embroidered collar
and cuff set has a belt to match. The
foundation is of a heavy white linen. The
hand-embroidery takes the form of dots,
embroidered in a solid color. The belt
has an inconspicuous harness buckle of
French cambric forms the foundation of
an extremely dainty collar and cuff set.
The collars and cuffs are oddly curved la
art nouveau designs, with the edges but-toned-holed
in white. They are finely
worked with sprays of shamrock in the
natural colors. Other sets are ornament
ed with forget-me-nots, violets and but
tercups. For the linen colored gown nothing Is
prettier than hand collars and cuffs of
heavy blue or ecru canvas. They are
oddly shaped, and are button-holed and
embroidered in heavy flax thread. Other
dainty ecrue colored collars and cuffs aro
of grass linen, embroidered In white and
colors In small flower designs.
Real or imitation Bulgarian embroidery
is very effective on the canvas collars.
Coarse thread In bright blues, reds and
greens Is used. It also forms a striking
means of ornamenting the turnover col
lars of natural colored pongee. Silver
and gold threads are also Introduced with
good effect. A pongee collar is embroid
ered with butterflies, whose wings flash
all colors gleam with silver and gold.
White silk forms the foundation of
many of the daintiest turnovers. It lends
itself readily to drawn work, applique or
embroidery. A pretty white silk cross
tie has embroidered sky spots outlined
with black. It has a fine point de Venlsa
border and ends. A white silk turnoveV
which extends In a long tab down the
front Is embroidered In a spray design of
wistaria In natural colors. Others have
clusters of .fruit cherries, grapes or.
strawberries. HARRIET HAWLEY.
UP-TO-DATE G7VRB FOR AUTOMOBILISTS ANT) GOLFERS
THEY ARE FAR FROM BEAUTIFUL BUT THEY
ARE INDISPENSABLE FOR PROTECTION

In Paris the costume for automoblllng,
especially for long distances, presents a
muffled and swathed appearance, for In
this case the Parlslenne eschews the friv
olous for the practical. Lkjoso coats, cov
ering the gown from neck to heels, are
often worn. Their protectiveness Is their
chief virtue. A baggy hood envelops the
head, and under the brim of the plain hat
big goggles loom with a grotesque ugli
ness. If the goggles are not worn a com
bined mica mask and veil may be substi
tuted. When .the thoroughly disguised beauty
lifts her skirts in getting out of the
equipage, top boots of stout leather, al
most as clumsy as those worn by duck
hunters, are sometimes disclosed.
The gloves for "active service," as the
slang phrase is, are proportionately heavy,
with hygienic perforations at the doubled
palms and unstlffened gauntlet tops but
toning over tho sleeves.
Many little conveniences are to be had
separately, among them the Deslree, a
combined mica mask, veil and hood. This
adjusts Itself to any hat. the gathered top
fitting around the crown with a rubber
drawstring. Another drawstring pulls In
the neck of the hood, and a ruffled tall
gives further surety against grime and
grit. Shower-proof gloria in soft greens,
grays and browns are much used for
these cloaks and hoods, which, when re
moved, sometimes reveal costumes of a
finished elegance that contrasts delight
fully with the shell thrown off.

automobile butterfly Is ready for the

country house or club to which she has

case of the ultra-fashionable. A silk rain
cloak, assumed only for; this occasion,
may display tthe ruffled hood, but the
coat generally worn takes to unnum
bered elegancies, and the hat above It
may show all the splendors of the season.
At the recent coaching parade in Paris
many largo hats turned up at the side dis
played a single wreath or more of tiny
flowers, disposed against the otherwise
bare brim, as if flung there. Two or three
of these dainty little wreaths, when or
namenting a hat, were Interlaced with
charming effect, the headpiece showing
no other flowers than these minute gar
lands of pale pink or blue.
Stunning coats seen on the occasion
were of cloth, in colors to suit the gown
which would be worn beneath, for, cu
rious to relate, during the Bols pageant
these coats were folded in narrow parcels
and laid over the knee. Some brilliant
tints were seen scarlet, pastel blue and
rose, and Hortensla violet among them.
In contrast with these exquisitely smooth
cloths, all sorts of airy textures composed
the gowns themselves.
Inexpensive and smart ready-made coats
to be had for automoulling and driving,
both abroad and in this country, are mado
of brilliantine and fancy tweed or chev
iot. An effective model in dark blue bril
liantine is handsomely trimmed with an
Oriental banding in black, red and .white.
This Is double-breasted, with flowing
sleeves, as are the majority of such coats,
but the heavier wool stuffs, especially If
in novel weaves, are more frequently
trimmed with plain cloth than anything
Tourists Summering In France and Eng
land will do well to provide themselves
with one of these coats Immediately upon
arrival, as they are indispensable for
country Jaunts. The traveler who comes
in contact with the most entertaining
people on these excursions is always the
one who Is properly dressed. The notion
that anything wHl do for the "tramp
abroad" is a great mistake.
In Paris, especially, careful toilet is
always a necessity, for there are no peo

The. girl with true sporting blood In her
veins grows Indifferent to such small
things as old-fashioned traditions, for the
time was when a woman could not go
without her petticoat and be a woman
still. An occasional glimpse of the fem

than It Is a sin to see a plump young
figure entirely without corsets.
Apropos of corsets, a pretty and com

a hint from the boned linen waists that
our grandmothers fashioned. The lower

NEWEST FADS IN SUMMER PORCH PILLOWS
EVER has the assortment of Summer
sofa pillows been prettier than It Is
The warm weather pillow occupies a con
spicuous place In the furnishings for the
country house. Not only. Is It pretty and
artistic In design, but it is serviceable
and practical as well, and can endure
the hardest usage.
The most practical of all the cushions
Is the one with the button-on cover. Eith
er silk floss or down is used for filling un
der the white undercover but the outside
must be of a heavy wash goods, canvas,
linen crash or other firm fabric. On one
side must be a set of buttons and button
holes, so that the slip may be taken off
and washed whenever necessary.
Pretty designs in tan-colored linen crash
made in an oblong shape are to be large
ly used for hammocks this Summer. Many
of the cushions of this style are em
broidered in heavy linen with the names
of songs suggestive of warm weather. "In
the Good Old Summer Time" Is a popular
motto, as Is also, "Way Down Yonder
In de Corn Field."
Cretonne cushions are to be much used
with draperies to match. They are strong,
and with a cord about the edge will stand
all sorts of wind and weather.
The big, old-fashioned handkerchief pil
lows have come into vogue again. They
are not made simply with a handkerchief
on each side and perhaps a ruffle on the
edge, as they used to be. but are cut up
Into four pieces, with the borders turned
toward the center and forming a cross.
The moro elaborate are joined in the

cross-center with a- heavy beading run
through with ribbon.
Cotton Oriental cushions are sometimes
too bizarre to be pretty, but they are soft
and comfortable and are being purchased
by a great many of the country residents
for use as pillows as well as sofa cush
ions. A heavy blue canvas pillow, rather flat
and small, will be utilized by the fisher
folk during the hot weather. It Is made
to fit in the back of a boat.
Slumber pillows of pine needles are
found everywhere. They are the least
comfortable head rests Imaginable. But
they are healthful and also pretty wffen
made of pongee embroidered in a deep
shade of brown silk.
The plain leather pillow will be used
to some extent on the veranda, but It is
too expensive to be practical for out-of-door
use. The round leather pillow, un
trimmed but merely laced together with
strips of leather, makes an attractive ad
dition to the wicker cozy corner of a
gpacious Summer porch.
The absence of silk pillows of any kind
is noticeable In the stock for sale in ths
sops. Heretofore, heavy Oriental silks
have made up a large portion of tho
cushion covers for Summer homes. Tho
