cd of the comment. Wo are drlftlng to?

of that perlod, but, ns la common with
revlvals, are by no means repllcas. Tho
close flt at the back ls exaggeratcd and

Among the p.ttractlvo thlngs nre some
comblnatiojs of black wlth color that aro
qulto new and that deserve every en

women brought forth new gowna and
now hats by the score. Who ever heard
of a club. meeting that was not a sarto
rlal event? Among tho hats were none
more iovely than theso to whlch I refor.
One, notable for Its pecullar (ltr.ess to the,.
wearer, was of llno black chlp wlth the
fasblonable low crown and wide brim.
Rourul tho , crown wore tuaased blaok

of palo blue chlffou, Bhlrred, wlth some
tender plnk roses at tho left slde. Am
other showed a slmllar outer trlmmlng
wlth the under-brlm a mass of syrlnsa

black rlbbon tled to slmulate flowers
round the crown, pale plnk ohlffon and
applo blossoms benouth, Tho gowns and
the sults present were rarely beautlful
and tend to emphaslze all that I have

lng girl from Florida wore a costume of

whlch was lairl In wlde hand'bewed tucks

of the bandaomest whlte gowns, and tho
whlte outiiumbered every color, were so

A most effectlvo costume of sheer cream
vcillng showed a panel of Cluny laco at
the front of tlie sklrt, and waa shlrrcd
from that polnt to form a yoke, to glvo
a flounce effect mldway between. The
blouse was made wlth a vest of the laco
that met and matched the panel, and
was shlrred over the shoulders and to tho

the idea that bodlea and Blceves were cut

Down tho front, Rt each side of the vest

Another was of chiffon vcillng, woven
v.lth an embroldercd cdge, and was
rhirrcd twice, several inches below tho
belt and agaln at an intorval, giving a
deep flounce effect. Tlie blouse was slm
