poetess, has n number ot original
gowns from which her stage sisters
might get n few points. Says Jose

Apropos of the stage nnd Mrs. Wil
cox wjio, besides Mnttlo Kecno's
famous sketch, wrote (ho poetic dra
ma, "Mlzpah," p-oduecd by Frohmau
she wrote two delightful curtain
ratsors whllo recently Wintering lu

They aro both In verso, nnd while
thcro Is considerable sentiment In
troduced In the poetess' own manner.
thcro are plenty of laugh lines mid

Mrs. Wilcox spends much of her
tlmo at her bungalow on tho Connect!
cut shore, but while traveling and lu
New York thlt-fnmous woman's num
erous social engagements require
many changes of toilette. Whllo all
aro beautiful, they aro not particular
ly expensive- For tho past two or
thrco seasons she has been 'effecting
painted chiffon gowns, and It actres
ses used a fow of this sort they would

When "yours truly" called on Mrs.
Wilcox nt tho Belmont the other

finish to licr latest toilette, which
was "to lntvo Its first nlrlng that even

Information that It had Just nrrhed

Tho white chiffon costumo ,vas

Kmpire style, with tieml-tralu. Of
courso. tho outer garment wns draped
in full folds over the cloco fitting
foundation, which followed tho Hues
of tho figure. Tho skirt wns painted
at tho bottom with n deep border of
shaded green that looked llko the
weeds nnd grasses of a field. From
this back ground arose great sprays
