ROYAL BAKING PO%i
How Wedding Gown of Miss Alice
Will Be Trimmed-Many Hats.
In inaking of her trousseau, Miss
Alice Roosevelt will have established
a new record in dressmaking history.
Only fifteen days to make a complete
trousseau of more than 200 pieces! But
the dressmakers have given their
solemn promises that it shall be done.
The great activity in the dressmak
ing and millinery shops followed in
the wake of Miss Roosevelt's brief
visit to New York. Sewing machines
were hustled out from corners, dusted,
and put into motion; extra girls, ex
perts with the needle and scissors,
were pressed into service, and by
February 16 the trosseau of the pres
ident 's daughter, upon which all fem
inine eyes are centered, will mark an
interesting record in dressmaking an

making of this interesting trosseau

the shops today. The dressmakers re

makers Saturday that she expects to
be in New York shortly to have the
final fitting .of her numerous gowns.
Half a dozen of Mime. Dustan 's
most experienced dressmakers were
engaged in hastily putting together
the foundation of the wedding gown.
The details of this gown were made
known Saturday\'or the (ht~t time. It
will be made in seAerely plain princess
style, with very little form of .decor
ation. The material of the gown, a
heavy cream satin with closely woven
silver threads, is in itself too rich to
admit of much trimming.
The yoke and high collar will .be of
old rose point lace. A six-inch-wide
ruffle of the same lace will edge the
elbow sleeves. the customary full
length sleeves giving way in this in
stance to the elbow length, in view of
the insistent instructions from the or
iginators of fashion in Paris that el
bow-length sleeves shall dominate in
everything, not excepting wedding
A flounce of old point lace'will be
the only decoration of the full skirt.
The train of the square design, lined
with cream taffeta silk, will complete
the wedding costume.
Just what kind of wedding veil Miss
Roosevelt will wear she has not signi
fied, but it will doubtless be the hand
some one worn by her mother, an heir
loom in her mother's family.
Several handsome pieces of Japan
ese and Chinese silk, of exclusive pat
terns, purchased by Miss Roosevelt on
her reent visit to the Orient, are be
ing made up into pretty matinee and
lounging gowns. Two other handsome
gewn of the trousseau, which will
also serve as reminders of Miss Roose

from the delicate jusi cloth present

native women of the islands.

HAT IN PARLIAMENT.
When It Must be Worn and When It
Can be Laid Aside.
Pall Mail Gazette.
I hazard the speculation that a
'ood deal otf the Parliamentary rite
connected with it have no symnbolie
origin, but rose from the simple cir
eunmstances that the House of Com
mons has now p)rovided itself with a
hat rail. The Lords have lordly hat
pegs just outside the inner doors of
the Chamber and you may see, the
peers' names boldly printed in proper
sequence of precedence, begining with
royal dukes and ending with the new
et barons. But the lowlier Commons
hav e to carry their hats about with
them, and so laws had to be made to
ovier.n the nice behavior of a member
in relation to his hat.
A miember~ may wear his hat at all
times in the Chamber exce~pt when he
is 0, hLs feet. Even if he be lea'Fn.:
ove a bench to speak to a f!
member behind him lie should rah.e
his hat, for his body is then in the-o
etical motion. But there is one point
in parliamentary debate when lie must
wer his hat, and wear it sitting. This
'is in the interval between calling a di
vision and clearing the house, when
the sand-glass on the table is turned;
over to count the two minutes. If a
member then wishes to raise a point
of order he must speak covered and
sitting in his place.
Some years ago a new member wish
ed to raise a point of order after a
division had been called. He rose in
his place, and the house-always a
keen guardian of its etiquette--roared
at him: ''Order. order!'' In the tu
mult the new member gathered from
his neighbors that he must wear his
hat. So putting it on, but still stand
ing, he began afresh. Then the cries
of ''Order, order!'' were louder than
ever, and the niew member catching:
down," sat down-and took off his
hat! Still more furious came the
cries of "Order, order!" and the
member, already utterly bewildered,
became maddened by this instruction
roared at him "Do both together."
He turned to his friends to shout:
"How can I do both-sit down and
stand up?'" And then, in despair
his friends seized him, forced him in
his seat, put on his hat, and said:
"Now speak!" But all he could
then mutter was: "I've clean forgot
ten what I was going to say. '
It was in a similar case that Mr.
Gladstone, having left his hat in a
room, had to borrow one from a col
league who took a very small size, and
the G. 0. M's. gravity heightened the
comic effect of a small hat precarious
ly wobbling on a massive head. Mr.
Will Crooks recently had to resort to
the same expedient, when the house
was very excited, and what is called
"an ugly scene'" was brewing. But
the hat handed to him was a very rak
ish opera hat, of brimmy shape and
opulent curves, and the gathering
clouds were dispersed by the hearty
breath of laughter.
The Parliamentary hat is a useful
implement. It serves as a sort of
workbox of the M. P., and is stuffed
with official papers. orders of the day
notes for speeches-and speeches that
are never delivered. If a member is
alluded to in a 'debate, he raises his
hat in acknowledgement; when a
Minister answers a member's question
the member raises his hat, when un
opposed bills are going through, the
Patronage Secretary raises his hat in
stead of opening his mouth and mak
ing a formal motion. Mr. Gladstone
well versed in the niceties of express
ion of the Parliamentary hat, used to
stroll into the house during his "re
tirement, from public life," thirty
years ago. wearing his hat, and car
rying his stick and gloves. The little
ceremonial meant: "Pray don't mind
me. I only just looked in on my way
and don 't intend to stop.'' So he
advertised and emphasized his detach
The Parliamentary hat, again, se
ures a member's seat for the sitting
if the member is present during pray
ers. But the procedure has had its
abuses, and led to ruling from the
Chair on the proper practice of the
Parliamentary hat. During the great
Home Rule days, when all the 670
members turned up to struggle for the
400 odd seats provided, a prominent
Liberal Unionist, son of a still more
prominent personage entered the
House laden with ancient headgear,
which he strewed along the benches
laimed by the faithful retainers of
his father. An Irish member, admir
ing the device, copied it in the inter
est s of his friends, and so the speak
er was called upon to rule out the
fraudulent hat, and to insist on the
onest working headgear and the bod
ily presence of the member as condi
tions necessary to a valid tenure.
Thirty years ago no shape of hat
ther than a silk ''topper'' had been
seen in the reformed Parliament. An
rish member made the first breach
in custom by coming down to the
ouse in a soft crush hat of the'size
ad shape that made Gladstone jocu
arly wonder whether it would be safe
to give Tennyson, who was faithful
to one like it, a peerage. But the Irish
member paid homage to convention
ven whilst lie defied it. for he car
red his hat furtively in his hand and
moreV it seldom in the chamber itself.
ad then only when it threw his apol
retic countenance into a kindly shade.
But one day Speaker Brand called
him up to the chair to tell him that
he was breaking an unwritten law,
and that he must provide himself with
headgear more suitable to Westmin
ster. The breach, however, had been
made, and Joe Cowen, of the Tyne,
conured convention by his widea
wake so making way for burly Sir
Wilianm Allan and his circumambient
glory, of which a Commons wit has
remarked that ''only on the lueuc :
non lueendo principle could it be call
ed a wideawake, for it was big enough
for Sir William himself to go fast
asleep in it.''
The next defiance of convention was
also the ne plus ultra of its ,degrada
tion-Mr. Keir Hardie 's deerstalker.
It "defied competition'' so much that
even Mr. Keir Hardie could not keep
it up, and he has fallen back on what
well-bred people call a Homburg and
the proletariat has popularized as a
Trilby. And now no quieerer or hard
