Latest o f M adam Fashion's F reak * as Seen
In N e w York.
The green pocketbook is here. It is
on dress parade along Fifth avenue iu
the hand» of women of fashion. The
green pocketbook came from Paris and
bears the closest relation to the craze in
greens, which has been the notable fea
ture in the Parisian color trend. With
the passing of the spectacular effects in
gloves, which are no longer broud
stitched and brilliant iu hne, according
to the latest edicts, the green pocket-
book has been able to assert itself at its
fa ll color value.
It is distinctly a Paris green— not a
subdued and dark bottle green, or a ten
der gray green like the tinge on a bank
note, bnt a bright bine green, like the
back of a lizard, tbe grass in J uue or the
poison that is used fur the extermina
tion of potato bugs. There are, to be
sure, modifications and shades, bnt the
green pocketbook is bright and uncom
promising in its color. It made its first
social debnt at the portrait exhibit.
The green pocketbook has taken the
place of the green carnation as a fad,
bnt the foil enormity of the Paris color
w ill not be understood until it reaches
the bargain conuters aud the hands of
the woman who is not careful of con-
grnity iu dress, and wears a green pock-
etbook with a pair of ox blood dogskin
gloves and a purple gown. Aud if Paris
green in wall paper is to be decried as
dangerous, what w ill be said of the Par
