AUSTIN'S HAWAIIAN WEEKLY.
In Woman's World.
An idea of the fitness of things
can be very successfully applied to
the purchase of stocks and collars,
which, after all, are the important
feature of the shirt waist. The
chic of this kind of dress depends
so much on the right collar and tic
that it is well to aim for the correct
thing, since what is suited to one
kind of shirt is out of place with
To be or not to be chaperoned
that is the question. Whether 'tis
better to let our girls go to places
of amusement with their escorts,
or whether a stern duenna should
hover within ear-shot of the young
people, keep at their elbows and
watch them attentively, is a matter
that is much discussed by fond

Very fine open meshed veiling is
the favorite for summer wear. It
has either large dots far apart or no
dots at all, and in either case the
veils are so thin that they will not
serve to disguise a poor com
Pretty, cool gowns for morning
wear arc made of toile, a new kind
of linen, which comes in all the
pretty delicate shades and the dark
er colors as well. It is made very
elegantly over white taffeta silk,
and trimmed with lace insertion,
the linen being cut out underneath.
At an auction sale of the effects
of the late Herrmann, tlic magi
cian, two pairs of silk stockings,

tunic of fine black lace. Bands of
black velvet strap the sleeves to

The Czarina has a shawl which
she values very highly. Tt was sent
her by the ladies of Orenburg, a
town in southeastern Russia. The
shawl is about ten yards square,
but it is so exquisitely fine that it
can be passed through a ring and
when folded makes a parcel of only
a few inches.

Leaving Honolulu and pass
ing through rice fields, the
traveler skirts the great In
land waters of Pearl Harbor
in sight of charming distant
mountain views, often span
ned by many rainbows. The
mountains further on crowd
the railway close to the ocean.
Here and there deep valleys,
guarded by high mountain
side-, almost perpendicular,
give sun and clouds an op
portunity to display wondrr
nil combinations of light and
shadow on the varied greens
and browns if the landscape.
Along the line are situated the
most productive sugar plant

equalling those of the greatest
cities, and mills producing
hundred of tons of sugar daily.

Fiona Macleod, who has so far
managed to keep her identity a
secret, has completed a new book
entitled "The Dominion of
Dreams," which is shortly to be
brought out in England. Here is
a letter which she has written to
her publishers, concerning her
much-talked of identity:
"Dear Sirs: T am much annoyed
at this continued identification of
myself with this or that man or
woman of letters in one or two
instances with people whom I
have never seen, and do not even
know bv corresnondence. For
what seem to mvself not onlv pood,
but imperative private reasons. T
wish to preserve absolutely mv pri
vacy. Tt is not nnlv that tempera
mentally T shrink from and dislike
the publicity of reputation, but
tfmf my very writing depends no
on this privacy.
"P.ut in onr respect, to satisfy
those who will not be content to
take or leave, to read or ignore mv
writings. T five von authority to
snv definitely that 'Fiona Macleod'
is not niiv of those with wITom she
hasbcen 'identified': that she writes
only under the name of Fiona Mac

and that all she asks is the cour
tesy both of good breeding and
common sense a courtesy which
is the right of all. and. surely, im

and for herself. Pclieve me, etc.,
