w'lth white silk blouse strapped In em
broidered bands cf wnitc and blue, with a
flaring sailor hat one of the Imported u

other all season. This was of line navy
chip, the brim lined with, odd little curls of
ttraw, very close together and forming a
solid facing. In a white or cream-white tint.
This faced the hat only part way, for about
two inche? round the under side o' the
brim was left plain, the new straw being
filled In with more tight curls, this tlm

of navyvelvet ribbon, and the general ef

Richards had some friends with them In
rear seats, and Allen West dropped In be
fore the close of the concert, In search of
friends, who were in the forward part of
South Side girls and. Indeed, many of
the "West End, too are much excited over
tbe projected arrival of a group of West
Point fellows, who -will come home on June
IS for their first furlough. There arc four
St. Louis men in the. same class at the
Point that of the second j earllng Carl
Klemra, son of Mrs. John Schroers. and
brother of Miss Carlotta Klemm; Thomas
Reynolds, son of Thomas Reynolds: Jay
Mailer, and George Bowd Hunter, who is
a son of Major vHunter, Just back from thi
Philippines, and now quartered at Jefferson
Barracks. These four will enjoy their fur
lough together, and bid fair to take the
feminine element quite by storm. Already
all sorts of festive plans are being made
bv those girls who knew the cadets before
they went to the Point, and many other
debutantes and popular girls of the younger
set have Joined the list of hostesses.
On the Fourth of July the four St. Louis
boys will entertain their classmates from

I Dofctor John Herf, which will take place on
the 30th of June. His furlough extends
over a period' of ten weeks.
Yachts for St. Louis millionaires, even If
we are considerably Inland; are becoming
popular. Mr. H. Clay Pierce's1 purchase last
week of the Amalla, belonging to King Car

tical circles, and gives to St. Louis a boat
of much'Importance and beauty. Mr. Pierce
has been without a jacht for several sum
mers. Three years ago he built and put
Into commission the Orizaba, which did not
quite meet all expectations of its owner,
and f which he sold after one cruise, to a
Bostonlnri. His spacious country place at
Pri le s Crossing, on the Masqat husett

Urn and splendor, md his lat purchase of
the Amalla will fully meet requirements,
