Trimmings Used in the Modiste's Creation of
': ne Royal Robes
One of the plcaaant feature of the
regatta that will linger long In the
memory of tha Indlea wHI be the beau
tiful gowna and rob that Queen Fran
cea will wear during her brief reign
over the city. To aay that tbeaa gar
ment are gorgeoua la but to exprcaa In
ficbli; language tha rich and coatly

The rob,- that Mlns Thomaa will wear
fit her coronation are delightful to gaze
upon. The skirt la of white satin,
Iraped with exqulalto white lace, trim
med with silver that scintillates In the
Mimshine like the glitter of crystal, ft
will be worn with a train of purple

coal and furbelows, and all the soft

doubtedly one of tne most gorgeous
ever designed by an Oregon mod lute,
nnd If Queen Frances Is not the envied
of her sex during the regatta It will
be because the women of Astoria, e
peclallr the young women, are prouder
of their queen than they are ambitious
to posse such dainty garments.
