wholesale trimming rl«<^» tney show them a half a
yard or more deep, but a costume Just completed
by a fashionable couturier makes use of a fringe
deep enough to ,\-,r completely the tr.iiliiij; skirt.
This tttngt was made especially for thia gown. The
foundation of the skirt is a gray silk, and over this
har.iKs the frtaaTe skirt made of gray silk passe
menterie shaded to form lines of waving diamonds.
This is worn with a little bolero of petit Kris, the
fashionable gray fur. The< reversible fronts of the
Jacket are faced witii a Japanese etnbroid in
many shades of green and dull rej, and some loops
of dull red veivet sn twisted into ornaments. The
shade of red Is almost a tnahog . v color much
used this autumn.
Dressmaking stems to be growing every season
a morft complicated business, demanding special
workers. It was not so many years go when all
establishments professing to make Btreel gowns
nf-rs forced to add a tailoring department and men
cutaera and workmen or women trained to do this
special kind of work. Now the tailor or the dress
maker who accepts street costumes Is expected to
be proficient in handling, cutting and makii I furx,
a special branch of work that must necessitate a
special department aiid another corps of skilled
workers. For conventional fur garments women
still Kent-rally ko to the furrier*, but so mai nar-
nts are combined with cloth or velvet, or made
•;]< after des-ijins peculiar to couturiers, that th.
aid of the tailor and dressmaker seems necessary.
l'urs promise to b<» more universally worn than
ever this winter, and the quantities of fur that a
fashionable dressmaker handles must be consid
erable. Kyen five milliners must have, skilful

elegant and fancy. In a dignified way. They arc

as the Paris winter is short and a lain*; pir: of t ]'•■

for furs is a short one. Perhaps, after all, the
true explanation of the amount of fur seen these
days .- th.it furs are e.xtremely modish.' and that
women no longer put them on simply to l\'-,' warm,
•but to be in th< mode.
LARGE EtATf AND BVIQHT TRIMMING.
While large hats of unconventional linen are gen
erally worn this year, there are aom< Instances
of stiff hats. A round turban with a stiff, turn up
hrlm is popalar. This is smart In black zlbelin^
if it. with white specks In it. and with an edge of
white ki'i binding th. brim. Another round shape
made without any t.rim i- named after the Shah
of Persia, as it romewhat resembles the turban
worn by th»t potentate. This is rally made of
«xnene|ve materials, perhaps fur with a heavy gold
galloon edging it and rich ornament holding an
aigrette on one .-.ide. A chic example of this style
is made of aioeu velvet with a heavy trimming
resting on th-- hair of green chenille a. d gold
braid, and with the ornament made of the same
trlmminK and the aigrette of gold.
The simple style of trimming is carried to an ex
tent that may prove dangerous. Some of the large,
"floppy" felt hats are trimmed by only a sin
gl* large bow. an Idea that may be extremely
i-Mc or may approach the extreme of dowdineas.
Aigrettes are worn a great deal, and do not al

••It Is all in vain that stories are furbished up

Wellesley girl yesterday. "Evidence falls to es

"On arriving In town when she entered college in

was powerless to prevent.

A LITTLE PLUTOCRAT WHO BOUGHT A
WEALTH OF CLOTHES FOR A
She is a dainty little plutocrat, an authority on
clothes, with a capital "C." and she talked clothes
all around the world as she sat surrounded by the
spoils of a season's globe trotting.
• Why." she said, "they can make a dress in
twenty-four hours in Japan, and cover it with em
broidery into the bargain. I don't know how they
do it. but they do.
"When you land at Yokohama you will find the
corridors of the hotel lined with Chinamen, runners
from the dressmaking houses. They give you their
cards, come to your rooms to get your orders and
give you fittings, and the next day they will send
the dress home. Jack ordered a broadcloth suit,
with a frcck coat, and it fitted him better than any
he ever had In his life. It cost him $13. and it was
as trood aa any suit he ever paid $80 for on Fiftb
'•Now here you se? this little pongee dress that
they made for me. You see it is all embroidered in
red and blue silk, and I never before had a *k!rt
fit me like this, and it cost me $8.
"Then here's a white flannel, with sailor collar
and cuffs embroidered in pale blue. They charged
me $15. and It is a regular Paris fit. Here's a white
inJia linen. You see the skirt is. composed of
clusters of fine, vertical tucks, alternating with
drawn work. It took them four day* to make that.
an they charged me $S. Here's a linen frock for a
child, embroidered with a vine pattern lnH>lue silk,
that they made for $3.
"They are Japanese who run the shops, but the
workmen are all Chinese, and they are simply
wonderful. They can take a Paris or -York
gown and reproduce It so that you can't believe
your own eyes. They tell a story In Yokohama of
th<- man in the early days of tourist travel who
tore his trousers on board and had them mended.
He sent them to the tailor when he landed to hay*
them duplicated, and they sent back the new ones
with the darn neatly reproduced; every stitch just
like the old one. But seriously, women have awful
times with their clothes in a trip around the world.
Aft<>r three weeks on board every stitch of a silk
gown will fall apart. There was one bfMe who
reached Cbere in despair. Every gown In her ele
: gant Paris trousseau was ruined. But she had
them all exactly reproduced, so you couldn't tell
the difference, anj at one-seventh of the cost. Her
J2OW gowns they duplicated for 13*. That's what
living on rice does.
"It's Just the same with materials." continued the
experienced traveller. "Do you see this magnifi
cent piece of cafe au lalt brocaded satin, a yard
wide? I K'->t thai for 73 cents a yard, and it would
cost $4 in this country. And Just look at thia," and
s<he flung out opulent lengths <>:' cloth of gold,
\ shimmering and beautiful. "This was ordered by
i Lady Curzon for the coronation." she said, "and
then she didn't take It. 1 got it for $1 .i yard, it
would cost $15 or £!0 in this country. I'm going to
have It made into a. gown covered with Irish
crochet. Now cast your eye upon this table. Kith."
The tablecloth was large enough lor twenty-four
covert. It had a hem of drawn work a thlru of a
yard wide, and the rest of the surface, excepting
the apexes left tor candelabra, was covered with
embroider}- which ■tood up half an Inch <>r more.
i There were twenty-four napkins, a yard square,
with h-ms of solid embroidery.
"That tablecloth was ordered by somebody and
never taken." said she. "The original price was
$'."•• and I gol li for $75. The napkins 1 ordered, and
had to pay $25 apiece for them. The set Is worth
J2.U00 In this country. And we expressed It from
Honolulu for $1 ZZ." ■_ , «
"That's the way you get around the autles, Is
it? " s.u.i the Interlocutor.
••oil. that's not the only way. *aid the little
plutocrat, wisely "I've learned a number of ways,
but I will sa> thai the Jape, or rather their L hjnese
workmen, ar" the cleverest people at th« business
I ever saw. will you lo<>k at that?'
It was a beautiful, pleated skirt of pale blue silk
popliu. apparently never worn. ..... . X
"When *h- rhlnaman brought that tn. said she
reflectively. ■I wus s. .irtJ I said, "Oh, John.

know it wasn't tnii-ie up. I brought one trunkful
«.r that kind of clothes. But I never saw uny thing
like thf- IndtgnUieu lo wht<-h travelers are subject

dlgnation. "Th^y up*-< 1 to have one man, but now
