possession of a large house on Scott
circle with a view to aaopmw ........-
ton as a winter residence, is sponsoring
the trained skirt for all costumes other
than the pronounced trotteur,
A favorite visiting toilet with Mrs.
Dlmock Is a black Egyptian crepe made
with its entire bodice of white net and
Honeton lace. This is a one-piece gown,
despite the contrasting materials, as the
black crepe, which has the high lustre
of crepe de chine, rises in well-defined
points The bodice shows a "slight V
bhape at the neck, with a high collar at
the back, and three-quarter sleeves, the
latter close fitting as regards their net
fo jidation. with the lace attached in a
charming, irregular fashion, known only
to the real French modistes. Just how
Mrs. Dlmock gets Int this gown no
one but her own maid can tell, for It Is
so distinctly a one-piece creation.
There is no reason for unbecoming
clothes in this 5 ear of 1913-1911, for so
varied are the offerings of all the nrst
class makers that each woman can
choose the style most suited to hsr face
and figure, likewise to her purse, and
remain au fait.

faithful supporters of the Malson Worth
and the dignified nonsensatlonal modes

Mrs. Walsh's handsome dinner gown is
a new shade of ruby velvet on princess
lines, except for the slight fullness ap
pearing high on the hips to lose Itself
in the back In long, tab-like folds which
fall low down on the train. The train,
it may be mentioned, is neither pointed
nor fish-tailed, but a square, dignified
outline, ling more than eighteen Inches
on the ground.
While following the conservative foun
datlon line this gown shows the very
latest effect In the way of embellish
ment in a Bolero of Jeweled net, also
in the broad sash end of jeweled net
that aDDears between two ends of the
back draperj. This Jeweled net Is dls

After graduating from school In June,
the Speaker's daughter passed six
months in Europe, where she supplied
benelf with a full set of new Ideas of
dress, even though her patriotism did not
permit of her purchasing ner enure oe

Miss Clark locks particularly well in
the present tailor modes, which have all
the feminine touches of broad fur collar,

or the almost Invariable sash or pannel

The severe tailored sUrt and jacket,
which might have been copied from her
younger brother, has entirely passed
away with the debutante of this year.

doubtedly also they possess the same un
desirable attributes long recognized in the
humble shirtwaist, which, however It dlf
ferd In material, is of the same general
family as the most glorified creation of
lace or net
Many fastidious women who object to
the marked contrast at the waistline,
compromise with the now popular girdle.
Only a few have arrived at the solution
shown In the smart costume worn by
Mrs Victor Cushman, the former Miss
Louise toraker. now one of the hand-soa-est
young matrons, as. a few years
ag. she was one of the handsomest girls
in vtasmngton society. Mrs Cushman a
gown Is one of the new deep reds with
much draped skirt, wide at the hips and
narrow at the anklrs. With this is wom
a very modish cream net blouse, supple
mented by a sleeveless and much cut
away Zouave jacket of the material em
ployed in the skirt In this way we
have the nrwest effect of net top and
sleeves with the color line, as well as
the richness of material carried from
shoulder to ankle. This becoming and
graceful top was shown to great ad
vantage at the New Willard early Jn he
w , when Airs Cushman removed the
coat of her smart costume. With this
was w-n a round hat slightly larger
than the average small hat of the season,
but b no means large, and with the
contracted crown, which is one of the
marks of this season's hats, with its
trimming -two very full, but not very
long, ostrich plumes showing several
shades of red matching the gown.
Mrs. Chester Barnett, who is return
ing to Washington for the winter,
while her young soldier-husband is on
duty at the Mexican border, looked
particularly chic at a recent afternoon
dance In a trained gown of chiffon
velvet of one of tho newest of bright
greens a darker green that the em
erald or the willow, yet with life and
light enough to satisfy the demands
of this color-loving season. This was
made In rather severe lines, with only
a slight fullness in the untrimraed
skirt, but with the much cutaway high
bodice. This bodice was totally un
trlmmed. except for the band of fitch
in the most delicate yellow and brown
coloring which edged ihe surplice neck
and closely fitted sleeves, the latter
extending to the waist line. The un
derbodice, showing only In the front,
was of delicately fine, unflgured net,
also In surplice folds, leaving a short
V at the throat. Young Mrs. Barnett
wore a small velvet hat also with a
line of fur.
Miss Dorothy Owen, schoolgirl
daughter of the Senator from Okla
homa, was a particularly attractive
figure at the dansant given at the New
Willard on Monday, -when the pres
ence of the Princeton Triangle Club
made this quite the maddest, merriest
dance for real young people that the
winter has yet seen.
Miss Owen, home from school for the
holidays, was one of the easily recog
nized belles, wearing a simple but very
smart tailored suit in medium shade
of brown cheviot, made with the long,
panel back and flat, close drapery,
with Its only trimming the military
frogs and buttons. This was topped
by an ultra-smart hat of dull pink
velour. In a youthful, military shape,
with a line of brown fur on the edge
of the closely upturned rim.
Miss Sophy Johnstone is wearing, as
usual, the smartest effects In youthful
gowns, either for day or evening wear.
The semi-tailored suit worn by this
genuine Washlngtonian at the Tri
angle Club'a- performance on Monday,
when all fashionable Washington
seemed eager to welcome the visiting
artists from old Nassau, was a mahogany-colored
rep, or poplin, with
round skirt and short, slightly gath
ered peplum back. The distinctive lit
tle coat showed a perfectly -plain.
straight back, opened on the side seam
with a four-Inch band of black- gal-
con, or velvet, as Its trimming. There
was also a line of black In the nar
row waistcoat, with the color scheme
carried out by a very modish, semi-
tailored velvet hat.
Mile, de Jtappard, daughter of the re
cently arrived Minister from the Nether
lands, who has already become a recog
nized factor In general society, as well
In the diplomatic circle, wore at one
of the recent dinners for young neonle a
charming gown of pale green that shows
several new features.
Mile. Rappard's gown has very much
of a train, notwithstanding the youth of
Its wearer, while the drapery Is of the
complicated, yet outwardly simple, kind
suited to the greatest refinement of taste,
and at the same time complying with the
latest dictates of fashion. "The color Is
the newest shade of pale green, a green
In which there is no blue and more than
a suspicion of delicate yellow. The bodice
above the high, soft girdle also shows a
new line. Inasmuch as It Is more square
than surplice,, with the scant drapery of
matching tulle over the satin, and also
over the bands of gold which form the
shoulder straps. The sleeves are half
length of the green tulle. A contrasting
color note Is the huge pink rose with
natural-hued foliage, tucked In the front
of the girdle.
Miss Rebecca Wllmer, who sails with
her mother for Europe on January 10, is
leaving a delightful Impression with her
Washington friends wherever and when
ever she appears. This popular belle.
Just entering her second season, wore at
one of last week's dances a charming
tailored afternoon gown In a dull pink
duvetyne. The skirt, which is narrow,
with close folded drapery.. shows a nine
Inch slit at the side, but also shows when
worn by Mrs. Wllmer s young daughter
a perfectly fascinating silk lace flounced
petticoat. The latter might readily be
taken as a permanent part of the cos
tume, for it Is matched by the quaint
and becoming lace of the bqdlce, showing
under the pink jacket
Removing the Jacket for dancing. Miss
Wllmer retained her broad white fox scarf
which gave a becoming line to the cos
tume, topped by a small taupe-colored
velvet hat finding a corresponding note
In the well-fitted cloth spats.
The decided fall in temperature on Fri
day served to give Washington its first
real touch of winter, also to show the
general preparedness of fashionable
Washington in the matter of handsome
furs. Very naturally women of the far
north showed many of the handsomest
fur garments. Judging these either as
utilities or embellishments. Mrs. Hale,
wife of the former Senator from Maine.
looked particularly smart on Connecticut
avenue wearing a deep collar of sable
with long stole ends, with which she car
ried a large pillow muff. Mrs. Hill,
daughter of James J. Hill, of North
western Haiiroaci lame, but now a per
manent resident of Washington, wore ono
of the handsomest fur coats of the win
ter, a long and loose but well-shaped
garment of sealskin, with a collar of un
spotted ermine. Mrs. Hill wears with
this a small round hat of seal and er

fur the color of moleskin with all the
becoming fluff of the long-haired fine
fox. Her hat matched the coat In color,
but was of velvet In a low-crowned close-
fitting shape without any trimming but
a self-colored Dow of a semi tailored kind.
A real motor hat of becoming lines as
well as color. The picture gained an
additional touch of color from the very
wrapping paper of Mrs. Rodgers' bundles
which was of pals green with the usual
decoration of holly and red ribbon on
each package. The green Christmas
paper was one of the newest wrinkles
brought to Washington from voung Mrs.
Rodgers' native Boston.
Miss Leila Harrison is another smart
Washlngtonian to whom the cooler
weather is becoming, as she Is wearing
a broad collar of raccoon fur with ex
cellent effect over a very smart tailored
suit of dark green cloth with sash and
possibly blouse of plaid silk. This suit
is of the many sectioned variety In close
