HAREM SKIRT OF PARIS
IS A FAR CRY FROM THE

By JULIA CH4.SDLEU MAPCZ.
Everybody Is talking about the harem
skirt. Some proclaim It scandalous, while
others are equally as enthusiastic In its

illustrator, declares that everything about

The illustrations from "Chic Parlslen,"
reproduced on this page to-day, are suffi
cient evidence that the Parisiennc has
placed an altogether different construction
upon the prevailing sensational style,
modifjing It until It neither offends the
rules of decency nor attacks the beauty
The styles of the Jute pantaloon are so
many and varied as to cause much specu
lation. It is certain that few women
would have the courage to become the
observed of all observers by wearing the
ariety of this eccentric fashion seen in
some of our American cities

The model shown In the Rue de la

Both pleats were braided with black
silk tresse below. A small bolero was
designed to wear with this skirt, orna
mented in the same way as the skirt,
dtsplaing a black lack belt. A cherry
silk corsage furnished a pleasing color
note which gave the dress a lively ap

of the harem skirt as shown In the Rue

BRAID THE FAVORED
FOR SUIT TRIMMING
HERBERT'S BAD HABIT.
"I think it time you began your hen
coop," said Herbert Crandall's mamma
to him one Saturday in May.
"Oh. I don't think I'll begin it. to-day,"
"The chickens will bo hatched very
soon." suggested Mrs. CrandalL "You
want to be ready for them "
"Oh, I'll be ready in time." answered
"But why not begin it now, at once?"
asked Mrs. Crandall
"I don't know." replied Herbert.
"I do," said his mother.
Herbert laughed. He was a good-natured
boy, but had a -very bad habit.
He was alwajs putting off everything.
He knew that that was what his mother
meant. She often said him: "Oh, Her
bert, do not put off till to-morrow what
jou can do to-day." And Herbert would
sometimes laugh and say, "But mamma,
dear, why should I do to-day what I can
just as well do to-morrow?"
Out in the barn his big brown hen was
sitting on twelve eggs As his mother
had said, the chickens might be hatched
any day. He was to build a coop to keep
the hen in wljen her little ones were run
ning about the yard.
"Perhaps I will begin It to-day," said
Herbert, and then he went out of doors.'
Jt was a lovely morning in June, al
most as farm as July. It looked so cool
and pleasant over by the pond that Her
bert thought, he would stroll over there
before he began his work.
When he got there, tho walk across the
fields made him very warm. "I guess
"I shall work all the better for It" So
he stretched himself on the grass and
went to sleep
'He did not wake until almost dinner
time. After dinner he said to his mother.
"I think I won't begin mj hen-coop to
dav. If I wait until ncct Saturdaj I
shall have a whole diy before me. I can
do It all in a daj." His mother said
When next Saturday came, several
things had happened. All tho chickens
had been hatched; every egg had had a
dear live chicken inside. There was no
coop ready to put the anxious mother in.
She tried to run after her chickens as
they ran this way and that, over the
stable floor. One ran into tlie horse's
stall; tho hen was nervous, she did not
get out of the way quick enough; down
came the hoof on her head: All the
twelve little chickens were left mother
less, for the hen fell dead
As Herbert stood looking at the poor
hen, his ejes filled with tears. His face
grew very red. "Oh, dear," he said to
himself, "if I had only made that coop,
this tv ouldn't have happened."

In nearly all the new suits the favored
trimming is braid, especially the wide
braid, which sometimes forms the collar,
cuffs, and revers, and trims the skirt as
well Panels of braid coming down the
front and back of the jacket, and con
tinued in the same way on the skirt, are
distinctly the thing ,
Narrow braid Is also ery smart, cs

designs on the skirt and coat
A touch of color Is added by Oriental
embroidery on the collar, sleeves, and

and It is not allowed to become too prpm-
lnent in the color scheme.
Buttons are also very much In evidence,
some of them of the same color as either
the suit or the trimming, or as both, and
some of them silver or gilt These latter
are 'very small, quite tiny In fact
In general, however, the new suits, ex
cept the elaborate satin ones, are rather
plain, comparatively little trimming of
any sort, outside-of braid, being seen.

Handwork is the dominant note on
many of the spring models. So convin
cingly beautiful are they that one is
constrained to thread a needle to em
broider or decorate In the countless ways
that characterize the new models.
Voile and marquisette are perhaps the
newest forms in which lingerie blouses
appear. The cool durability of these
open-mesh fabrics is appealing to the
one who Is planning an outfit for sum

simplest styles The kimono blouse Is the
pattern most generally used. It is made
collarless for those who have pretty
throats and the courage of their convic

Hand Embroidery on Bloases.
Hand embroidery on lingerie blouses can
be done in many ways. The square
meshes form excellent guide lines for

small dots, graduated In size, forms a
very effective decoration for white
Cross-stitching, to form little flowers
or conventional forms, is easily applied
on these square meshes. This method of
decoration is most effective when two
or three different colors are combined to
give the effect of the German embroidery
or old-time samplers.
French Knots Effective.
French knots are another effective way
to decorate the spring and summer
blouses They wash easily and are ca
pable of being quickly made by the ama
teur. Another idea on the same line is tho
making of loops of colored thread. Both
French knots and the loops can bo
grouped to fill spaces that are outlined
to represent petals of large flowers
This effect, that after all Is an imita
tion of beadwork, leads us to the mode
of decoration that promises to be car
ried on through the coming seasons.
TVaiih Beads Used.
Wash beads are used, and the designs
are worked out in Japanese, French, and

They are decorated with beads, braid,
