THE SENSIBLE ARRANGEMENT OF SUMMER WINDOW HANGINGS
A IIILOSOPHKRS aver that the
|1 window often proclaims the
I I householder. There is a moral
ij^^v in this for window decorators.
J ' ■ Perchance the windows that
exhibit the extremes of curtain and shade
novelties, while denoting a progressive
designer, also indicate one who does not
belong to the most exclusive circle of so
citv. since high society always is conser
vative. The woman whose curtains are
hopelessly behind the fashion la pretty
certain to be a rather dull, unobserviug
individual, set against all innovations.
Of course this does not apply to th<>
woman who makes use of her particular
kind of window decorations simply be
cause she cannot afford to vary thorn
with* every son.
In most American houses the heavy
curtains and portieres which have help
ed to kfep out the drafts of winter ar?
removed and lighter and more delicate
hangings axe substituted at the beginning
of summer. Almost all women buy their
PARISIAN IDEAS OF THE CORRECT THING IN BRIDAL GOWNS
y ' '*fe ARIS. May 10.-The wedding
V^^mr season comes around again.
PARIS, the roses one sees on
m aeon comes around again.
With thi- roses one sees on
jj/ every hand, preparations for
trio launching into matrimony of a num
ber of the fair daughters of France. A
wedding is an important festivity here;
it means the practical emancipation of
the young woman, who as a demoiselle
-$r. polite society is far from enjoying the.
liberty and gayety which are the lot of
the American debutante. Socially, the
young spinster is a nonentity to be
snubbed and set aside by the matrons,
ty ho are the real belles of France.
The average French bride has an elab
orate trousseau, but for my part I con
sider that she uses little discretion in se
lecting it, for it is bo extensive that be
fore all the garments have been worn
they will be out of fashion. To select
plenty of lingerie is all very well, but the
modes vary in underwear, and as the
really smart woman needs to be thor
oughly up to date, even in the cut of her
petticoat, it is better to buy as needed.
The old-fashioned . gathered underskirts,
lor instance, are quite impossible with
the fitted costumes now worn.-* Much the
me may be said of other styles of
A recent fashionable ' wedding at the
English church in the Faubourg St. Hon
ore will serve as a model of what is this
season considered modish in wedding
finery. The chancel of the building was
beautifully decorated with white flowers
— calla lilies, lilies of the valley, white
tulips and daffodils—while the altar was
almost covered with them and a generous
proportion covered the pulpit.
Afternoon weddings are now accounted
the smartest, although for convenience
noon affairs are still sometimes pre
ferred by those who are going on long
journeys. This marriage was celebrated
at 2 o'clock. The cards of invitation were
printed in silver, an innovation which
society has not yet altogeher approved,
for the best usage still clings to engraved
invitation cards in black and white.
;T^nglish cards are issued in the name of
the bride's mother, who is supposed to
be the chief upon all social occasions in
her husband's house.
Small bridesmaius and pages arrayed
in cavalier costumes were a pretty fea
ture of the Faubourg St. Honore pag
eant. The designs for their dresses were
taken from the famous picture by Van
dyke representing the children of Charles
I. The pages' costumes of cream colored
cloth were completed with collars of
guipure lace and trimmed with gold bur
tons and braid. The maids' frocks were
likewise fashioned of cream cloth, trim
med with lace collars and gold buttons
and braid. On the head of each lltlte
damsel was a cap of gold braided white
The bridal gown was a handsome af
fair of white satin and Irish lace, that
kind of trimming being at present high
ii. favor with English women because
of the preference which Queen Alexandra
has expressed for it. The lace was ap
plied in a flounce about the shoulders and
in broad bands on the skirt, A sweeping
l;:ce*train was a part of this costume.
Tulle'veils'seem to be preferred to lace
this season. They have the advantage of
be Ing lighter, and more comfortable.
O:ange blossoms are always fashionable
foi a bride's coiffure.
The bride's flowers must, of course, bo
white. There sems to be no exception
to this rule, but bridesmaids' bouquets
vary. Flowers of any color preferred are
provided, but they should all be alike.
At a recent wedding a very pretty effect
•was obtained by alternating bouquets of
v.-hite and pink roses with each pair of
It is needless to say that before 6 in
rthe eVening the bridegroom is arrayed
an trousers of subdued color and a frock
coat, with a boutonniere of white and
an ascot tie.
The reception after the wedding Is
more often than formerly a large func
tion. Not infrequently 500 guests are ask
ed to the house. The refreshments pro
vided for an afternoon affair are very
simple, generally nothing more than
sandwiches, salad, wedding cake and
champagne. The repast should be served
informally from a long table elaborately
decorated with flowers.
The wedding gifts are still displayed in
a separate room. Long tables covered
with green silk accommodated the gifts
displayed at a recent fashionable wed
dir.g. Fine white tulle was draped over
the collection, the misty folds of the cov
erings softening the outlines of the more
garish remembrances. The material was
supported canopy fashion by four of the
larger presents, which were placed in

Often there is a maid of honor in ad

second in elegance only to that of the
bride. White crepe de chine trimmed
with narrow tucks and bands of lace was
worn at a recent wedding by the maid
of honor, with a wide chip that wreathed
with roses and garnished with bows of
lace. The lace bands outlined an over
skirt and apeared on the front of the
costume. About the edge rows of tucks

Picture hats are in harmony with the
average bridesmaid's gown. They are
trimmed for weddings with roses or small
flowers, with a soft scarf draping the
rear. A shepherd's or a directoire staff
is often carried instead of flowers. The
bride may dispense with her bouquet
and carry a satin or an ivory covered
prayer book instead.
The bridesmaids are always given some
substantial remembrance by the groom.
Generally this is a brooch or a pin. One
of the-art nouveau designs carried out in
enamel is at present a favorite pattern.

at the elbows in embroidered flounces, the
accordion plaiting puffing beautifully just
above the bend in the arm. A train
draped from the shoulders was framed in
a moderately . deep friil of embroidered
mousseline. A wreath of orange flowers
draped the girdle.

The ,adoption of colors in the manu
facture of the so-called point lace cur
tains is. cue of the innovations of the
year. On a net groundwork of white,
cream or ecru cut out patterns in col
ored cloth are appliqued. The colored
design appears only as a deep border,
and a very rich effect is sometimes
achieved. The wary housewife will be
apt 'to consider the colored point cur
tains well before- buying because they
are not adapted to stand frequent laun
dering, ■ and the beauty of a lace curtain
is its immaculate neatness.
There is a new variety of openwork
muslin that is enticingly draped in the
meres. A beautiful tine of leaf green

about the lower part of the skirt. The
train was composed entirely of lace and
hung from .the shoulders, a method of
draping now employed on a majority of
the wedding gowns in Paris. The com
bination of satin with acordion plaited
chiffon is a device adopted in preparing
some fashionable bridal costumes. The
flounces of the acordion plaiting are head
ed by lace.
One of the simplest models that was
made this spring was of silk mousse
line, sparingly adorned with hand-work
ed embroideiy. Ivory crepe de chine,
lace and chiffon were combined in a rare
ly handsome costume. The bodice was of
draped crepe de chine, with elbow sleeves
of accordion plaiting finished by flounces.
The double flounces which showed be
neath the lace overskirt were of ac
conlion plaited chiffon edged with full
ruehings. With this toilet was donned
a veil of exquisite, brusseis lace. Ivory
duchess trimmed with brusseis point lace
and chiffon roses (white, of course) made
up a very rich costume.

and the elaborateness that uret-eded it.

Silk gowns are never worn by reaJly
fashionable brides, and gems are no

SMART Mill, 1,1 XEH V.
Milliners are so clever nowadays that
there are some very happy compromises
between the eminently practical and the
distinctly becoming hats. There tire cer
tain things which, if put "upon a hat at
all, must be the best of their kind—for in
stance, flowers, feathers and lace. Di-
rectly these get in the least indifferent
they becc-me an abomination.
The best milliners are given individual
attention to the manipulation of smart
country hats. Many leaders of fashion
nowadays indulge in various sports, and
the hat for motoring has become a great
consideration. Most of those people who
possess a motor use it whenever the
weather permits, consequently they want
something smart as well as practical.
The great thing is to have nothing that
is injured by dampness or dust. Feathers
and flowers axe incongruous except for
short distances. Glace seems to fill the
want of the hour in this respect. Burnt
straw shapes trimmed with glace or fou
lard make ideal hats, while colored straws
adorned with quills form charming

in summer is measured by its ability to
let in light and air and protect from
prying glances, the lacelike-green affairs
cannot be recommended, since they are
certain to cast a shaded quality of ligrht

effective, but they are not useful sum

be in place to mention a pretty quality

of colored and corded threads. Muslin

The Picture Hat.
The picture hat has never been more
beautiful than it is today. Yet in a meas
ure it has fallen on evil days, fo r the
simpJe reason that it is so often donn:d
by the wrong woman. There is a terrible
type of would-be artistic lady who im
agines that she possesses all the qualifica
tions necessary for the successful wear
ing of the picture hat by reason of her
knowledge of art. But unfortunately this
lady has no knowledge whatever of dre.^3,
and she professes to be above the vanit;e.;
of this world, apart from art. The re
sult is always disastrous, as can easily
be proved by a 'look in" at a studio.
No self respecting woman nowadays
attempts to wear thin blouses without a
silk or muslin slip underneath. Shirts
and bluoses should always be avoided
by the untidy type of woman. To look
well they must be beautifully put on and
properly arranged at the neck and waist.

being tne following;
It is recommended to distract the at
tention of - the persona who are seized
with the paroxysm. They are advised
to count, etc.; sometimes an attempt Is
made to frighten them or to surprise
them, and if this is successful the hic
cough is stot)f>edr Another of the means
adopted is 40-; hold the 'breath, cither by
counting up to thirty, or by repeating
loudly and with volubility the same sen
tence, or. what is much better, in drink
ing a :;las.s of cold water in sips, at the
same time pinching the nostrils. A good
thing is to provoke a sneezing fit. either
by tickling'the inside of the nose or by
toe aid of snuff. If a sneeze is induced
the hiccough is at once arrested.
The most useful remedy to employ,
and perhaps the most inoffensive and
the best, consists in sucking a piece of
sugar which has previously been steep
ed in vinegar or drinking a spoonful of
good vinegar in which some sugar has
been dissolved. If this is not at once
successful, a second spoonful is certain
to be so.
