FASCINATING FOOTWEAR FASHIONS,
FOR SPRING AND SUMMER. .
JST." said I. "they blister!"
"But," said the shoe buyer,
with finality, "they bewitch!"
a Which Is aa adequate reason
for the fact that It Is to be a
pump season at whatever cost
to heels and hosiery. Not even the sang
ankle strap will be permitted to the
woman who would be ultra-fashionable.
A new cat of the vamp Is said to have
Improved the fit of the pump to such an
extent that there was ample room for
Improvement many a callosity and blister
will testify to that the ankle strap has
been, omitted from the smartest style
far spring and summer wear.
The patent and the dull ' finished
leathers win be used for the street boots,
ss will also suede, in black. But the shoe
buyer affirmed that colored suede would
be seen no more 'neath the petticoats of
the correctly clad. He discoursed thus:
Silk and satin shoes and pumps are
expected to displace entirely the colored
suedes. "We are now, showing1 , many
novelties In these silk shoes." Some are
made entirely of the silk or satin, while
others have only the silk tops. The satin
is used, of course, for the boots intended

silks in blue and black will be much

"Oxfords and two-eyelet ties will be
second in favor only to pumps. Tan will
be used moderately, and later on we ex
pect a bigger season on white kid boots
and oxfords than we haveseen for soma
The show cases axe distracting with
their dainty rows of dancing slippers and
their charming boudoir sandals. Gold
slippers, that look as though a Cinderella
had dropped them in her haste to be
away from the grime and smoke, have
rosettes of the gold cloth that look like
flower petals. Low cut French slippers
of black satin have no ornament save a
single rhinestone that serves to empha
size the graceful curve from instep to
toe. Black suede slippers often have tne
high gold heel, which, women have found
does so much to shorten the appearance
of the foot. A more daring use of this
Idea is when a scarlet heel is put on' a
black slipper and a narrow rim of red Is
stitched about the top.
Beaded effects are used as extensively
on fashionable footwear as on every other
part of this metallic season's costume
Sometimes but the toe of the boot Is
worked out in jet or other beads; some
times a boot Is strapped above the ankle,
each strap being heavily beaded In intri
cate designs. A black suede shoe wa
seen having a heavy extension sole, but
fastened to the full shoe height by means
of straps about two Inches apart. An
other novelty In cut is a street shoe with
a wing tip which buttons down to tha
very point of the tip at the side of th
shoe. This shoe also was cut entirely
in one piece on the inner side, the only
seam being at the button lapping.
At last may the woman who does with
out flannels that she may wear silken
hosiery rejoice greatly and buy her
flannels. There is a new silk stocking
on the market of Italian silk that is
practically guaranteed. It Is not trans
parent, but has the appearance of a fins
silk glove, and it is declared that no more
need one note an infinitesimal hole at the
extreme top of a stocking, and while one
is noting, note again that it has sped
wickedly down to the extreme toe. This
hose does not drop stitches.
Embroidered hosiery Is well liked at
present, and open work, in both silk and
lisle will be much worn. Two-toned
effects are good, and the opera hose is
shown in a variety of combinations. ...
.HE will glitter, she will dazzle,
she will tinkle the fashionable
woman of the season when she
is arrayed In panoply of the
latest jewelry conceits. Jeweled
bandeaux for the hair, neck
laces, dog-collars, chains, bracelets, din
ner rings, jingling trinket sets, and tink
ling purses like the lilting lady of his
tory, "she will have music wherever she
She may look like an empress, or like
some barbaric queen, with a head dress
of pearls like a coronet, or strands of
multi-colored gems caught Into great
cabochons above the ears. The seed pearls
are probably the best liked for adorning
the coiffure. These are often Incrusted
In flowerlike forms on a band of gauze
or tulle which Is twined about the head
end fastened, preferably at the right side,
with a large cabochon of the pearls.
Jet continues to be popular, and the
effectiveness with which it was worn with
white gowns, as well as black, during
the winter assures its use with the light
gowns of summer. Coronals, long jet
chains and a series of slides, through
wnlch may be threaded black tulle for
the throat, are among the favored forms
most in demand.
Trinket sets ranging In price from ten
to thirty dollars are among the fads of
the fastidious woman. These consist of

been most frank in the public appliance
of make-up, make use of all of these
trinkets, quite unmindful of onlookers.
With the Increasing vogue of silver these
sets have been made up in attractive
Imitations of the Mexican filigree work,
which sell at a reasonable figure.
It Is predicted that mesh bags install
metals will be greatly used this season.
These are seen in gun metal, silver and
gold In plain designs and also in stunning
combinations of metal worked Into stripes,

of three pins, two for the collar and one
for the inevitable jabot. Extra lonar jabot

are still being worn, and with the tulle
