No. 3 is built of coarse brown
straw, with tower-like points of
brown ribbon surmounting it. This
close-fitting shape and the lofty
trimming will be exceedingly good

attention just now. It is made of
white maline and bands of white rib
bon. A band of white fox swathes
the low crown and the silver rose
adds to the cloud-like effect of the
white and silver hat.
