HOP, SKIP AND JUMP HOBBLE
Manners Reflected In 8tyle of Clothes
.Reca ll Egyptian and Japanese
Way of Dressing.
The styles of our clothes have been
responsible for some very interesting
ways of walking. In fact, styles of
walking are easily to be traced to the
sort of skirts we wear. Or la It the
other way around? Do we submit to
extremes in skirts according as we are
willing to give up the privilege of tak
ing comfortable, normal steps?
This Is not the first time we have
hobbled. But the hobble of 1819 Is
just a little different from the hobble
of 1013. For one thing, writes a fash
ion correspondent, we are not so do
cile about it. We cannot accustom
ourselves to it, for we have gone un
checked and unhaltered for so many
So this season's hobble Is character
ized by something that resembles a
hop, skip and jump. We make a val
iant effort as If we hoped any minute
to be able to step forward unchecked,
and finally abandon our efforts to
progress entirely. Then we either
give up walking entirely or abandon
our tight skirt in favor of one that
ts wider though not so fashionable.
At the resorts, where women have
In other seasons promenaded to show
their own and to see other women's
new apparel, and where only thee
who were too weary or too weak to
walk resorted to the wheel chairs, it
has been noticed that there were de
cidedly fewer promenaders among the
women and an unusually large de
mand for the wheel chairs. The an
swer is not far to seek. No matter
how willing, nay, eager, you may be to
walk, if your ankles are shackled, you
can't do it. Hence you must either
stand or consent to be wheeled.
But there is nothing new at nil
about the hobble step. In fact, the
skirt so tight as to force women to
take mincing steps seems to have been
admired since the dawn of history.
Surely, the Egyptian women must
have hobbled as much as the young
woman of 1919, and the Japanese girl
in her narrow hemmed kimono cer
tainly never knew the freedom that
comes with the skirt that Is wide and
HATS FOR SHORT AND TALL
Headgear Most Becoming to Woman
Below Average Height Compared
Rather large hats are leaders in
summer millinery, and sentiment is
about equally divided between the)
poke-shaped affair with narrow back
and the hat with wide brim of even
width all around.
A study of typos wHl usually prow
to the woman below the average) height
that if she wants a broad-brimmed bat
the one that flares over the face only
and ts cut narrower at the back is the
most becoming. A hat that haa a wide
brim all the way around la the beat se
lection for the tall beauty. The small
hat may be worn by the woman of
practically any height. The brhnless
hat, however, is more trying to the
average face than one with a brim to
shade the face and soften any lines.
Dainty Trifles for Girls' Use.
Pretty lingerie clasps are made of
crochet and the snap fasteners with
which they fasten are covered with
tiny crocheted roses. Other clasps are
made of linen tape trimmed with a
tatted edge. Both are practical be
cause washable. Ribbon clasps are
finished with tiny pink rosebuds. Any
bits of crepe de chine or ribbon will
make a einsler of the popular little
bads that girls wilt deBghtedsy ted a
place for oa her lingerie, her boat hat
or ba$ or her dancing/ frock.

their appearance at state banquets.
