ing clothes arc those who wear them every night. Waiters and the few who
dress for dinner. Of course, in England more of them dress for dinner, but as
c:\-ilization advances the number is reduced. The significance of the new
order at the Savoy is thus remarked: "It is a social theory that every gentle
rhari dresses for dinner. The new rule signifies that not all gentlemen are
inclined to the custom, or that in these day* many men can afford a guinea
for tlit stalls who arc occupied too late at their daily work to dress for
dinner and the theater. Except on first nights, men wearing ordinary busi
- clothes may occupy stalls."
It is oniy a step to business clothes on first nights, and after that a ban
on evening clothes. Race progress that's all. They're even relenting at the
Ritz in New York. The Ritz. of course, is not a theater. But it has been
the only place in America jyhere evening clothes were de rigueur at dinner,
and perfectly proper women could smoke—that is, smoke in a cafe—without
criticisnf. This was because,, the Ritz brought English manners to New York.
Cigarettes for evening clothes at dinner. The cigarettes for
women still prevail. But at least two persons not in evening clothes have
led at the Rit7. Whether or not o others followed their lead they don't know,
but the precedent is established.
The Blanks 6i San Francisco inadvertently established the precedent just
before the holidays. They were in New York, and Mrs. Blank had wanted to
Ro to the Ritz. so they were there. The first night they dined early, to go to
the play. Mr. Blank wore a dinner°coat and Mrs. Blank a street costume that
. wn a perfectly good Paris creation, though not an evening dress. At 7:15
they rjje*ented themselves to the steward. He looked at them in politely
concealed amazement. Hesitated long enough to appraise them. The value
vvas very considerable, so to speak, and the trained discernment of the steward
knew He led them bravely into the dining room, made a detour of
the end of the room to a table hidden by a pillar, and left them. Left them
that they were alone in afternon gown and dinner coat. Alone
?.5 they were among scores of others en decollete and "clawhammers."' And
t<< recall the hesitation of the steward. They didn't repeat the experience,
and can't say whether or not their lead has been followed. But they feel a
sense oi distinction in having dined at the Ritz informally arrayed.

A sort of sartorial revolution in
London has affected the theaters.
The Savoy surrendered the other day.
Printed announcements that evening
clothes are no longer de rigueur in the
stalls. The effect on men may be
fancied. Women don't care. Rather
like evening gowns than otherwise.
The new rule doesn't prohibit them by
any means. Merely makes them a
question of individual preference. But
consider the relief of men.

Miss Christine Donohoe, the de

the dinner at which Mr. and Mrs. James
Flood entertained in the Fairmont last
evening. A portion of the laurel court
wae screened off with a hedge of Jap
anese thatch. A Japanese gate, made
of bamboo and thatch, gave entrance
to the improvised oriental garden in
which the tables were placed. The
walls were hidden with palms and
bamboo branches, and about the wall
and hedge were set small bamboo
tables and benches. There were three
round tables decorated alike with a
profusion of brilliant blossoms. In the
center of each a tree of full blown
American beauties rose from a mound
of pink rhododendrons, heather and
fernery, and for each of the fair guests
was an old fashioned corsage bouquet
of heather, primroses, baby roses and
lilies of the valley. « Among those who

that those opposed by both senators

THE EDGE OF
"It's the edge of cultivation.
Ain't no use in going farther."
We were speaking the other day
tbout a queer little railroad built and
run in a very peculiar manner. "When
that road was started, 40 years ago,"
said a man of 60, "every one said it
would never come to anything because
it defied all the established precedents
of railroad building." Today that de
fiant little railroad is , the best railroad
proposition within a radius of several
There is no edge of cultivation. Kvfry
century has been taught that lesson.
None has learned it. What would the
men of the eighteenth century have
said if some one had told them that it
was possible to harness steam md
make carriages go 100 miles an hrnir?
What would the men of the nineteenth
century have said if some one had told
them that men would learn to fly.'
What did they say? Witness the humor
ous poem of Darius Greene. Or, better
still, ask Wilbur Wright.
And still the lesson is ndt learned.
The men and *omen of the twentieth
century have come to accept the won
ders of steam and electricity and the
flying machine as commonplaces, but if
you should prophesy some new and
startling - possibility—say the medicßl
miracle of limb grafting—there would
be plenty of folks as certain as their
predecessors that they also had reached
the edge of cultivation.
There is no edge of cultivation in all
the world. The world is round, not flat,
and therefore you can not come to any
edges. You may come back into fa
miliar country if you travel far enough,
but you can not come, to any edges
because there aren't any.
"It's the edge of cultivation." is the
natural proverb of age. Youth knows
better. Age is always telling youth
that tlifs or that can not be done and
youth is always doing it. And then,
alas! youth itself passes , on and says
to another generation about other mat
ters, "It's the edge of cultivation."
"It's the edge of cultivation" is the
word of the mediocre man. The big
man knows nothing so well as that
there are no edges. He recognizes that
there may be limits to hi* ability, but
there are none to the world's possi
There is a certain make of candy
recently put on the market which is
infinitely superior to all similar can
dies. If you had told the manufac
turers of the old product that It was
possible to make anything so much
better than their product they would
have said, "Nonsense. We know all
there Is to know about this subject,
and we are getting out the best thing
possible." In other words, we've reached
the edge of cultivation.
But they hadn't, for the other fel
low went far beyond, and some day
some one will probably go beyond him.
There is no edge of cultivation. Don't
believe any one who tells you there is.
There's always a use in going farther
for the man who has the grit to do it.
And who knows but that you are
that man—or woman?

PIECE SKIRT WITH OR WITHOUT OVER
This is the season when pretty, dainty
frocks such as this one are in demand.
The draped over-skirt is charmingly
graceful yet is simple and youthful, ana
the bertha gives the most becoming pos
sible lines. As shown on the figure, the
dress is adapted to mid-winter parties,
to graduation and to occasions of the
kind. Fundamentally, it is exceedingly
simple, however. There is a little over
blouee that consists of two pieces, a sepa
rate guimpe and a two-piece skirt with
an over-skirt. With the bertha and over
skirt omitted, the frock becomes adapted
to the simplest fabrics and to every day
wear. For the dressy frock, pretty, soft
silks and satins, chiffon, charmeuse,
marquisette and fabrics of the kind are
appropriate. For the plain one, any
thing seasonable can be utilized. In one
illustration, chiffon cloth is used for the
over-blouse, guimpe and over-skirt,
