FASHIONS FROM NEW YORK
New York. Feb. JO. Just now Is the
critical turning point of the winter, sea
son. The regime of the ball gown
reaches its - end next week, on Ash
Wednesday and the dinner gown will
reign supreme, during.' the season of
Lent, which proscribes dancing and
other amusements of a gay and friv
olous nature. The question of dinner
gowns is of supreme importance Just at
this time and anything that, has any
bearing upon that question is .of ab
sorbing interest to the feminine mind.
The makers of fashion have been very
considerate for the fair sex during the
last few years, by compensating the fol
lowers, of fashion for the loss of oppor
tunity to display gorgeous crea
tions in dresses, caused ' by the
restrictions of the' Lenten sea
son by a development" ef dinner gown
fashions upon ball gown lines. Now
adays there Is but little difference be
tween ball and dinner gowns. They are
. built Of the same kinds of materials,
ornamented in the same gorgeous style
and one is cut about as low as the
other. The only difference, and even
that Is In many cases not marked enough
to form a clear distinction, is in tho
sleeves. Ball gowns are uaually made
without sleeves, while dinner gowns are
usually provided with such or at least
with some rudimentary attachments that
may in a pinch, be- interpreted as
Never before was there so much lib
erty left to individual taste In the mat
ter of selecting materials for dinner
gowns than there is at the present time
and never before was there such a be
wildering array of beautiful materials,
beautiful in color as well as texture, to
select from. Brooaded silks and satins
In the most beautiful , patterns and
shades are offered in the shops, side by
side with chiffons, net gauze and other
diaphanous materials of delightful tex
ture and, last, but not least,, velvets of
a pliability and fineness of texture never
equalled.' So great Is the number' of
rich and handsome materials that It is
quite difficult to choose among them.
The beauty of it is, that fashion pre
scribes not one of those materials and
every one has the privilege to suit her
taut and purse.
The lines within which individual
taste may assert itself in regard to the
style of the gowns and waists and their
trimming and ornamentation are a)so
drawn more-liberally (than ever. It may
be .said in a general way that laces pre
dominate in the trimming of the waists,
while the skirts are usually of a less
elaborate style, but beyond that It
would be dlffcult to define the limits of
dinner gown fashions this season. Par
ticularly velvet gowns affect greater
simplicity and are cut tighter than be
fore. Lines of jet and jeweled passem
enterie are used on velvet gowns, occa
sionally' bands of furs or satin ribbons
combined with lace, which give to them
. a rather extreme effect. Some of the
handsomest velvet gowns shown are of
extreme simplicity, rigorously plain, but
" The best possible business
methods are used in the sale
of Schilling's Best
by grocers especially good
ones, on this Coast. '
there is method In that apparent mad
ness. There is nothing that will lend
itself so well to form an effective .back
ground for gorgeous jewelry than one
of those plain velvet gowns. The effect
of the jewels is wonderfully enhanced by
the simplicity of the gown, as there is
nothing to detract the attention from
the valuable ornaments.
Velvets are shown In a greater va
riety of texture, colors and shades this
season than ever before and some of the
goods displayed are of remarkable
beauty. There are some - in various
shades of pink, from the palest to some
of a brighter hue, whites, from the pure
and dazzling white to the most charm
ing cream and Ivory tints, mauves, and
different kinds of blue and green.
Greens, the light shades as well as the
darkest ones are exceedingly handsome
and becoming to . certain complexions.
Of course, there is no lack of black vel
vets from the dullest to the most lus
trous finish and all of them in various
degrees of weight and thickness.
As to brocaded silks and satins, there
is a surprisingly great variety to be
seen in the shops. The colors are beau
tiful and there are a few new shades re
markable for their exquisite beauty.
These handsome materials go well with
delicate laoe and will show up well eves
in combination with the richest kinds of
For middle aged women and even
young matrons flowered brocades, made
up in the old-fashioned style, with the
front panel of another material, ' the
skirt as well as the waist rather plain,
and a bertha or elaborate neckpiece
of lace are very becoming and fashiona
ble. Gowns in satin, brocade or velvet,
made In princess style and not over
elaborately trimmed with lace are high
ly effective for young women as well
as those of maturer years, while chif
fons, nets, gtfuxes and other, light ma
terials are better suited for young girls.
There are some charming materials of
that lighter order to be seen in the
shops and most of them are quite with
in the reach of the moderately well to
Several attractive novelties In corsets
have come out recently which, will un
doubtedly appeal to many women who,
for some reason or other have trouble
in getting just the kind of. corset they
want One is a new straight front cor
set, which embodies quite a new idea.
The lower part of the sides of the cor
set is formed by two pieces set on and
adjustable, being laced together in the
front. These two pieces are made flexi
ble by three bands of elastic set in
on either side. The corset is laced with
two strings, cne carried from the top
of the corset, to the waist and the other
from the waist line to the lower edge.
The ends of the upper lacing are brought
around to the front and carried down to
the lower part of the corset, where they
hold the adjustable! pieces on etthor
side firmly together. The steel of. the
corset Is full length and there are three
catches on the lqwei" part of it and
three on the edgr-s of. each of the ad
justable side pieces. ' .
Another new corset, which haa & long
skirt piece over the hip and whose side
steels are carried down a short distance
below the hips, is also shown and will
be welcome to those who wish to wear
tight fitting skirts, without having quite
the proper figure for them. Below these
side steels are separate hip pieces of
the corset material set on three inches
from the front and extending partly over
it. It is held in place by an elastio
which is at the lower end of the hip
Medium sited hats are more and more
in favor. Small. : boat-shaped turbans
and toques are frequently seen on the
streets snd it Is pretty . well , settled

a favorite and Is decidedly becoming to
young women. vThe material should be

- The fashion of dining In public has
led to the Invention . of an airy little
moussellne toque, which is worn a great
deal by fashionable women In Paris.
These toques are trimmed with gold and
have either an aigrette, or a sweeping
plume. That little hat Is worn to the
theatre after dinner. Some women, to
whom they are becoming, wear some
thing lllfe a Mary Stuart cap.
The latest Parisian fad. which Is sure
to make Its way across the ocean, con
slats in delicate silken hose, decorated
with hand painted birds, flowers or ara
besques on the instep and in some in
stances reaching up in front to a short
distance below the knee. Some of those
stockings combine the hand painted dec
orations witn insertions or lace or-drawn
work in exquisite patterns.
It seems as if early Victorian styles
will be, the leaders in spring fashions
and undoubtedly many old-fashioned ma
terials will become popular.
Net top laces and other kinds of net
lace will be in great demand for frills
and flounces this spring.
A GAMBLER WHO DID
NOT WANT TO WIN
The honesty of gamblers was the sub
ject of discussion and the Athena banker
told this story: "I wss in Pendleton one
night a number of years ago. It was
during the good old days when every
thing was running wide open and no
Tom Halleys had appeared to ruffle the
placid waters of the sport's haven.
"I dropped Into Frank 0Hara'a gamb
ling house and found one of my Athena
friends crazed wUh drink and with a
pocket full of gold, "bucking roulette.
The fellow owned a big farm and had
several thousand dollars in my bank.
But he was fairly insane from his drink
ing snd was throwing put money by the
"I walked up to the wheel and watched
htm. The man was winning but I knew
about what the outcome would be so
I turned to O'Hara and asked how much
the fellow was in.
"About $150,' responded O'Hara. But
I don't want his money, Can't tell him
anything though.' I reached out and
counted out $1(0 from the money scat
tered on the table and putting it into
my pocket left the place. O'Hara nodded
his assent. Before morning my friend
was broke and when he returned home
several days later he came to the bank
and thanked me. If I had attempted to
take money off the average sport's table
I would have had a mlxup. O'Hara Is
what I call a square gambler."
