til», 'he etuis of which were t pped with
brown. The hat was white better,
large, and simply overwhelmed with
brown tipped white plumes.
Several beautiful little bonnets for
small girls are made like Marie 8tuuI*
coifs, and they are bewitching over the
pretty faces. But the quaintest ami
prettiest headgear for little toddlers i
the queer, old fashioned
shown in the picture. The fall of lace
over the rosv faces is too cunning for
anything. I have seen three hats almost
like this among the new spring model
bonnets for ladies, though they are nar
rower at the back and puff out a little
on the sides, but reach the same high
point and have the same frill of lace
and big or little bow, according to cir
cumstances. These hats remind me of
some ancient picture I have seen. They
look odd, but are certainly piquant and
attractive, and resemble in some vague
way the mob cap of our great-grand

In front was a gather fall of the cloth,
but none in the back. The waist closed
with double rows of small black silk
crocheted buttons and soutache, Polish
style. I have spoken of this garment as
costume when the tailor himself called
it a Polish cloak, but as it is not to be
worn over a dress and takes the place of
one I should call it a costume in prefer
ence to cloak if I hail the naming of it.
However, it is very stylish and graceful.
At this same house I saw a long wrap
that for sunjptuous richness I believe
lias rarely been equaled. The wrap was
for a lady who counts her millions on all
her fingers, end if reports are true some
of her toes as well. Tho wrap was made
of prune velvet of the richest quality,
long and with angel sleeves. The velvet
was embroidered in high relief with Sad
ler's silk in the same Bliade, but it looked
lighter from the difference in silk and
velvet. The pattern was an intricate
design of convolvuli trailing along the
edges about a foot deep. The effect was
indescribably rich. Below this was a
border of Bussian sable eight inches
wide all around the bottom. On the
sleeves there was a twelve inches deep
black crocheted ball fringe in silk. The
collar had a fringe like this, mingled
with sable tails. The whole was lined
with an india shawl that must have cost
a thousand dollars, and how the owner
ever had the conscience to cut it up I
cannot imagine. The whole cloak I was
told was valued at $2,500.
What could lie worn with such a wrap
in tho way of dress or bonnet? Well,
the bonnet was of prune velvet, with a
border of steel bead passementerie and
some velvet convolvuli in deep purple
tints. The dress was a rich black bro
cade, with a flounce of black ostrich
plumes, headed by a rose plaiting of
fringed out silk, which was almost as
soft and fluffy as moss trimming and a
good deal mòre expensive. Of course
this grand toilet is one specially intended
to Btrike awe into the hearts of tea
givers and kindle tho fires of envy in
the hearts of women.
