The newer collars are, bn the whole,

All of tho collars in this class, Robes

women who seem oblivious to tho, fact
that they aro offending against tb'o laws

Xot all tho collars rolling away from the

been made elastic enough to cover' a host
.of shapes that havo not thb remotest

FASHIONS IN CUSHIONS,
rtnnnd Shapes 'the Xanest Old Tine
Foot Rests Here Asaln,
Terhaps the newest and moat popular
cushlonrare the round ones, several Inches
In thickness. The materials chosen for
them are 'usually plain fabrics, such as
corded silk, satin or velvet. On examin
ing some of the handsome cushions mads
to order st an Interior decorator's" studio
one notices that the material is put on
full, top and bottom, drawn down In tight
folds to the centre and fastened securely
under a button of the material on both
sides of the cushion. On the majority of
the cushions heavy silk cords, matching
In color, are put von about six Inches
nnart' and the material Is drawn tightly
around tho cushion, fastening beneath.
Any amount of originality can be usea
In designing these cushions and costly
materials may be utilized in their makeup.
Tho fabrics chosen are usually dark rich
shades, harmonizing with the rugs and
hangings of tho room. Some of the hand
somest cushions are of velvets tn rods,
bronze and browns combined with heavy
cold braid or cord, the centre buttons
being carved gilt affairs of generous size.
Urocodes of the rich two toned varieties
make attractive cushions, while black satin
and black velvet are particularly popular
and smart for decorating purposes;
Some of the down cushions have the
black coverings embroidered In Dresden
colored flowers In heavy silk or chenille
work.' A black velvet background was
used for a ket of cushions which had for
their dccoratlvo fonttire brilliant birds In,
chenille embroidery. A brown velvet cush
ion with heavy gold embroidered designs
has recently been ordered for a rich brown
and tan llvlnit room.
With the revival of other old time bits
of house fumlihlngs come the foot pil
lows or foot rests. These are oblong af
fairs at least two feet long and about a
foot or more wide and of the same thick
ness. These floor cushions or rests are
not soft yielding things of down, but are
stuffed well with hair. A set of thess
conveniences ordered for a blue library are
of a heavy, rich blue cloth embroidered
with gold tn square designs.
A long wide crimson velvet pillow has
a border of Oriental embroidery while a
yellow boudoir Is to havo a foot rest of
orange brocade, trimmed with gold fringe.
All .over tapestry la particularly practical
for these cushions, though plain satins
and velvets are smart.
FANCY EDGED BIBB0NS.
An Kar War of Modernlslnar Old
The vogue of fancy edged ribbons of
fers a wide range of possibilities to the
Ingenious girl who knows how to mod
ernize what she happans to have on hand.
A study of the expensive novelty ribbons In
the shops will show how easily and
economically a plain ribbon can be trans
formed Into one of the fancy border var
iety. As sharp contrasts are particularly de
sired in these new riDDons, me ciever gin.
tfiAr enrpfollv nnnnrtnr n.nrt nresslne an
ou umck saiin' or lanrem riouon, applies
tho narrowest of white plquot ribbon to
each edge. It should be so placed that
It projects Its full width beyond tho old
llbbon and must be carefully basted In
place to avoid any tendency to pucker.
When It Is run through the sewing ma
chine, the lino of machine stitching should
follow close to tho selvage of tho finish-
Inn ribbon and a novelty ribbon Is
achieved at a minimum of expense and
if tho old ribbon Is white or nny pale
color, the added plquot finish should be
black. Narrow black velvet ribbon makes
a modish finish for white or light tinted
llhbons. It may he applied by machine
stitching or by simple outline stitch In
heavy black silk. This, If done carefully,
has the effect of a corded selvage lino.
The girl who knows how to crochet
thinks nothing of finishing handsome old
rlbbona with a tiny Bilk scalloping. This
should not be morn than a quarter of on
Inch In width when finished. A pale
tan scalloping on a brown velvet ribbon
Is a good combination for the girl who
wears brown and has an accumulation of
partly worn brown velvet ribbon. Either
for millinery or dressmaking purposes,
ribbon so finished Is effective and modish.
The crocheting should be done directly
on the ribbon, the crochet hook being
thrust through the edge of the ribbon at
For the girl who does not know how
to crochet, simple buttonholing offers an
excellent substitute. There Is no quicker
method of freshening a wide, handsome
ribbon than to ornament both edges with
deep buttonholing, showing wide spaces
between the stitches. The fancy for sharp
contrasts holds good In this line ot dec
orating and the work should be sufficiently
striking to pay for one's trouble. Iloth
this and the silk crocheted scallop have
the advantage of being the same on both
sides, so that the ribbon Is reversible.
An n means of effectively Introducing
ono of the season's new colors, the trick
of modernized ribbons cannot be equalled.
A deep, widely separated buttonholing In
old gold, brilliant csrlse or any of the
rich dahlia colorings on the edge of an
otherwise plain ribbon works a change
quite out of proportion to me lime anu

Circlets of Ribbon and Tulle to
Ho Twisted by Clover
FLOWER PINS FOR HAIR
Knnds and Coronets Effective
Additions to Evening
The varied ornaments for the hair which
the shops now display are an Incentive to
tho clever homecopylst. It is casy'to fashion
these circlets of ribbon and tulle provided
the amateur worker takes' a little time to
acquaint herself with the various grades
of wire required. She must 'familiarize
herself with ribbon wire, lace wire and
bonnet wire of varlousslzes.
, The flat ribbon wire Is capable of much
manipulation. It can be used flat In its orig
inal width, or several rows can bo stitched
together to form a wide ribbon of wire.
While It has sufficient firmness It lias almost
the flexibility of ribbon and can bo twisted
and knotted Into all manner of designs.
Tho fine lace wire comes by the spool and
Is hardly coarser than heavy lineri'thread.
It Is used for holding In place airy materials
like lace and tulle and senses well for the
petals or ribbon flowers or the loops of
dainty bows. Bon net "wire Is used In the
making of hair ornaments-, only where
actual stiffness Is desired and where a
firmly outlined edge Is to be finished. '
The beginner will do ell to practise a
little with a couple of yards of stout twine.
If the work is done on a cushion, the knots
Hnd twists of the twine being held in place
with plns.'one quickly becomes accus
tomed to the, -required shapa. Where any
new deslgnMs a?to tried It Is a saving
of time and trouble to,' experiment with
twine before hnttdllng-lhe actual materials.
A coronet means less work than a band
encircling the entire head, and for this
reason It Is a good model for the beginner.
A coronet should -not be more than six
Inches long, as the ends disappear Just
over the temples In the fulness of the
Two pieces of bias satin cut to simulate
Mercury wines make an effective centre
decoration for( a coronet. These should bo
finished with a twist of ribbon wire, rolled
with satin aoa studded at Intervals with
rhlnestonea. 'Where 'the wings separate
a wisp of marabou'isja suitable addition,
and gives good height. The band Itself
should be a series of Interlacing rings or a
trellis design In.the ribbon covered wire.
The wire should bp pressed narrowly
together ot each end of the band and nn
invisible hairpin tUU'd In, These hair
pins nre thrust.. Into the hair, holding the
ornament firmly in place. Where the hair
Is not worn parted a third Invisible hairpin
may be twisted Into. 'the centre ornament.
With a patted coiffure this additional pin
would show and Is therefore undesirable.
The Interlaced ring design Is perhaps the
most simple and Is merely a succession of
knots made wjlh the'slk covered wire, the
shape being' adjusted 'with each knot. A
latticework or trellis deslpn Is also easily
curried out by using two parallel Ires as a
frame, between wlilch tho twisted rllbon
wire appears and Is caught with tine
stitches to keep tho design In place.
Where fringe effects are. likud. a tlnjv
pendant sewed at tho upper corner, of each
square makes a moro elaborate latticework
ornament'. A dressy coiffure ornament of
the fringed variety Is easily made with n
wired baud of silver ribbon studded with
crystal beads and outlined at the lower
edge with a tiny crystal frlnso.
A distinguished effect is easily arrived
at by a band of bias, velvet ontlrely, encir
cling the head, meeting at the lett sidq under
a wired maline bow. 'I he velvet band
should I, e outlined with n tiny paa-emen erio
edge ol lhincstoncs and n rhlnestoiio
ornament should be placed at tho starting
point of tho maline how. In black or
white this design Is especially effective.
Care should always bo ulven to tho end
finish of these hair ornaments. Where the
band encircles entirely the head the Joining
Is easily pinned, but the shorter b in U
must be narrowed tod finish and neatly w IrcU
to slip Into the fulness of tho hair. Some
of tho most expensive models are furnished
with tiny loops of lace wire through which
Invisible hairpins may bo thrust. .Others
depend entirely for firmness upon nn in
visible hairpin, at each end which Is twUted
into the bandeau,
Largehairptns equipped with a more or less
elaborate ornament uro also much usi-d for
evening coiffure decoration. A pretty idoi
is to cut five petals about an inch long, so
that when joined the result' wilt ho a good
sized flower. Wire each petal .with luce
wire and dot with crystal beads to coie,
the stitches. In tho centre or tho flower
fasten a spray of algretto, wiring it firmly
through tho heart of thu'flowcr und down
liliu inu twru niuiu,
Such a decoration wired to a largo shell
hairpin Is a charming addition to an eveaiiitc
toilette, and t lie color of the ornament U
easily made to harmonize with the costmi.e.
Two elaborate pearl or Jet bullous wired
together mako a good starting place for a
wisp ot marabou, or a small ostrich lip
and are easily wired to a hairpin. In such
ornaments care must be taken to have both
back and front equally good,' as1 thoy rise
entirely above the outline of the hair.
