Flowers are much used to trim tven
Ins gowns.
The coming season's sunshades are
bewildering in floral effects.
Velvet and pluBh capes that are of a
rain proof finish are the novelties.
In the newest Imported gowns the
puff In the sleeves .begins below the
Braiding still remains with us as
trimming for the spring dress, cape
and Jacket.
Buckles remain the favorite orna
ments. They are seen on all the collars
of the spring gowns.
Leghorn halts trimmed with ostrich
feathers ami lace are to be worn this
spring and summer.
There are a greater variety of mohair
fabrics brought out this season than
have 'been shown In many years.
An examination of the fashion books
shows that light and bright colors are
to be worn this spring and summer.
Short coats with the ripple back, are
fast becoming the fashiqn and push
ing the long coats Into the shade.
Women .who "make their own bon
nets," as so many, never suspected',
do, often produce prettier ones than
Fancy fans are very popular, and are
to be had In feathers tufted with blos
soms or tiny curls of contrasting os
trich tips.
To a young girl of 15 or 16, a black
skirt with a light-colored silk waist
represents the most desirable spring
A new color Is announced called
"Pharaoh." It Is a yellowish shade of
red and will be much used In spring
Very farge loose rosy-purple Parma
violets made of shaded silk and del
icately perfumed, are stylish and
The best veils to wear have light
sprays and Bpots on a clear ground,
and greatly Improve the appearance
of a poor complexion.
A pretty Idea Is to catch the very full
sleeves on the outside of the arm with
a rosette of velvet matohlng the belt
and crush collar.
The new goods, both In sllv and wools
are so ibeautiful and rich In color
and so elaborate In design that they
forbid much ornamentation.
Most of the waists show a distinct
waist line, but the French blouse re
mains papular, and the surplice waist
effect Is being largely used.
The high Spanish comb of silver or
tortoise shell, such as our great grand
mothers wore In Josephine's time, are
much worn.
Gold-tipped daggers are thrust here
and ithere through the hair, and cres
cents of shell or jewels are caught ii. j
every loop possible.
There seems to be no end to the fan
cy neck ornaments which the shops are
displaying. The newest are creations
of flowers and chiffons.
Many mousquetalre lengths In gloves
are brought out for the spring and
summer seasons, when sleeves puffed
to the elbow will favor the style.
Skirts, In all cases, fit closely over tke
hips, and, although they reach a width
of from seven to eight yards about the
hem, they contain no extra stiffening.
Almost every bodice of recent date,
for evening dresses and walking gowns
alike, have a pouched front, which con
ceals the waist line and overhangs the
Sleeves on the new models are cut
as they have been all winter, large at
the top, very close at the wrist, and
running out on the hand In ornamental
In the trimming of skirts there con
tinues to be the greatest reserve. Eith
er there Is no trimming at all, or It U
so managed as not to Interfere with
the outline.
Mast of the short jacket bodlce3 art
made with revers that wUen Into a
deep cape-collar across the back, which
In some cases is deeper yet over the
The cold and unbecoming bluet,
which never had anything but novelt
to recommend It, has passed the hey
dey of its popularity, and will soon dis
appear entirely.
A popular fancy which will be dainty
and useful for elaborate summer
frocks, is to ibulld the elbow sleeve o:
two or three lace ruflles with loops and
ends of ribbon between them.
To Judge Iby the early offers of sum
mer good3, cotton crepss, and crepons
will be In great favor. Those crinkly
things in any material silk, woolen
or cotton wear wonderfully well.
Straw hats have already appeared In
the stores In all sorts of fantastlt
shapes, large and small, high and low
crowns, and mostly made up with a
rim of one color and a crown of anoth
er. Capes will take a fresh lease of favor
this spring, for the reason that g.iod
sized sleeves will continue In fa?Mon
and because they pre easily put off and
on. The fresh Importations are varied
and most attractive.
Side combs are seen wherever there
is a possible excuse for them. Most of
them are made of shell, sometimes
plain, and again with the top capped
with enameling, wrought with gold 01
set with Jewels.
wks made with a plain, close-fit
ting back and with one wide box plait
In front are also styllsn. Tney are iasn
loned with a short, velvet yoke. And.
, th -. box Plaits have to be
watched or they will make one look
PJbbons are used in profuslrn In fash
ioning the new neck ornaments. The
form plaited ruffs with long ends
, orrTieed in rosettes, and many of
them are caught in a big bow back and
front. This latter arrangement, though
odJ, is extremely chic.
; The best way to 'keep a very nice
and delicate dress Is to make a bag of
muslin large enough to hold the dress
aa It would hang In the closet. Shirr
up the Ibag and run a basting or cord
through it. Pass the string through
the hangers in the belt of the dress
and hang It up In the closet.
The manufacture of laundrled shirt
waists axe showing -a larger assort-1
ment of textures, colors and shapes
than at any time since their Introduc
tion into the world. Some of the small
checks are very clear and pretty, and
cannot, especially when made In a
dressy Btyle, be easily told from a silk.
Many are the fancies In new sleeves
for evening toilets this season, some
of the Immense puffs are caught Into
the outside of the arm with one great
damask rose; others ylth a large rib
bon rosette, and other flaring shapes
are 'banded by pearl passementerie Into
melon puffs that go perpendicularly
from shoulder to etbow.
Large, airy, black lace hats are a
feature of the new millinery. One
startling combination has a black lace
rim and a crown of gold and black,
from which roses In varying dahlia
tints spread out among hoops of wldt
dahlia satin ribbon which extend out
at either side In front, and are furthei
softened by black lace edging.
In the stores new washing silks are
prominently displayed, and, though
closely woven, are soft and pliable
These goods are In various attractive
patterns and colorings and will be used
ff-r travelling costumes for spring and
summer, for house dresses, wrappers,
Bklrts, tennis suits, tea gowns, and foi
children's outfits.
The newest theatre bonnets are airy
structures, built upon a new plan, that
of suggesting some flying creature
bird, beetle, or butterfly. The Idea is
carried out by putting several pairs of
wings at various angles upon a flat
crown. The wings are usually artifi
cial and are made of gauze or mous
sellne de sole, spangled with jet of the
very fashlonalble lrrldescent green
spangles, and wired to keep them in
Among the novelties of the season are
very short boas of feathers, lace or
ruched silk, that go around the back of
the neck and remain open In front
where they are finished off on either
side of the neck with bunches of flow,
ers and a long streamer of gathered
lae or a floating end of ribbon. An
other new Idea is a butterfly b6w, worn
directly In front against the high cellar,
a jeweled buckle forming the body and
the larger wings framing In the chin.
The bow is very becoming to some
faces, for which it forms a pretty set
A man In Colorado has a quaint col
lection of bottles. It Is divided Into
two sections. Section one is large
Section two Is not. Section one contains
hundreds of bottles, the contents of
