SOME OF THE QUEER FREAKS IN
FASHION WORLD
By Betty Brown.
P "s often a joy to study the freak
ish things of fashion, and it's always
a double gladness to find that some
oddity which costs a little will give
a much needed touch of newness to
one's ordinary wardrobe.
Some double comfort is to be had
in the new use of common gingham
for blouses. Cross-barred linen tow
eling is used for the same purpose,
but it makes a heavier blouse than
most women care to wear in warm
weather.
The idea of combining a plain coat
with a checked skirt is also as eco
nomical as it is pleasing, and it will
help a good many women to adapt a
last year's garment to this year's
wearing.
No one will especially regret the
disappearance of furs as summer ac
cessories. Some women who could
afford the most expensive furs have
always regarded their use in sumniT
as "simply barbarous" but the style
has left one happy trail behind it in
the development of the long satin
scarf. Lovely scarfs are of black
satin lined with Georgette crepe of
gay color. The extreme length of
these scarfs is three and one-half
yards, and their width is one-half
yard. They are usually weighted
with heavy tassels.
A queer idea in uneven hems is to
face them with some contrasting
color. For instance, an ordinary
blue satin dress assumes the air of
an imported French creation when
the hem is faced to the depth of nine 1
mor.es with cardinal or nios green.
Skirts winch touch Lbe iloor ail the
way around were introduced at cer
tain recent Paris openings, and it is
well for the interested to take note
of this symptom, for the change is
undoubtedly on the way.
In millinery one naturally expects
to find the freakish without looking ft
very hard for it, and yet one is as-
fonished to discover that grapes
made of huge blue glass beads aie
almost as charming as, say, apples
made of papier-mache. Hats are
made of trilot to match the collar
and cuffs of serge frocks, and beige
suede and black satin are combined
in a chapeau which is appropriately
finished with a fringe of slashed
leather.
Unusual combinations of materials
are characteristic qf smart clothes.
Wools and wash stuffs are frequently
put together. A certain serge one
piece frock has a front and foot
ruffle of organdie, producing the
effect of a coat worn over a wash
dress.
Of course when one searches for
queer things one naturally comes
upon the obvidus and wonders why it
has not happened long ago. the use
of rubber bathing suits, therefore,
does not1 stall one. The rubber is
combined with jersey and the whole
suit is linf d with satin for comfort's
sake.

TOO MUCH TWO-TWO.
The old lady from the country
went to the ticket office to inquire
how often the trains left for Kansas
City. '
"From two-two to two-to-two," re
plied the ticket agent. -.
"Well, r declare," exclaimed the old
lady, "and be you the whistle?"
