THE SPRING HAT.
Yesterday Was Opening Day in
Newberry and the Displays
Were Very Beautiful.
In the spring a woman's fancy
lightly-turns to thoughts of spring
millinery-and white silks and black
silks and laces and embroideries and
crepe de chine and lawns and tulle,
and all the other varieties of feminine
apparel more numerous than leaves
in Valambrosia- mut most of all to
spring millinery, for spring could be
spring without the songs of
the birds, wthout the budding trees,
without the perfume of flowers and
the beautiful colors with which all the
southern hills and valleys are touch
ed, but spring couldn't be spring
without the spring hat.
Yesterday was opening day in
Newberry, and the ladies visited the
stores which had announced their
spring openings and found there such
displays as could not but delight the
feminine heart. Never were the hats
and the dress goods more beautiful,
never were the displays more tastily
arranged, was the opinion expressed
by every lady who saw then, and
it was evident from the throngs of
ladies who pacek the stores-all day
that nearly every lady in Newberry
saw them. The weather was all that
could be desired. even for opening

The store of the Mower company
had been arranged with a view to
showing off the display of hats and
dress goods to the very -best advan

its line of business in South Carolina.
The hats and the dress goods were
all new and pretty and attractive, and
were admired very much by every
lady who saw them.
When Mrs. J. H. Hair returned from
New York and the northern markets
