What Well Dressed Women Are Wearing
"What are tie women wearing?
Style were never more radical,
whimsical or queer and yet, looking
upon a gar throng of fashionably
gowned woman, one must admit they
never looked younger, cuter or
smarter. There is an extreme dainti
ness about their scant costumes
that makes even the big woman look
"petite" and the "petite" woman
abolutely girlish. The short waist,
short skirt, short sleeve and short
ooats suggest old prints in outline
and color, yet these present such va
riety. Ingenuity and such tempting
problems to the woman-wbo-likes-to-do-thlngs,
that it is plain there
never was a time when the skilled
needlewoman or the clever girl may
evolve her own ideal with greater
success or copy somebody else's
ideal. In adding some fetching
feature or touch of distinction to her
gown she may utilize all her treasur
ed bits of old brocade, embroidered
chiffon, gold lace, buckles and beads.
She may combine any. of the pieces
left from former favorite gowns, eo

There is a craze for black and white,
particularly combination of stripes,
but they are often set oft" with a
touch of blue or coral pink, or plum
color, although there is an attempt
to revive the old shade known for
merly as "old gold."
There is no garment in a woman's
wardrobe more serviceable than the
long coat It is correct whenever
and wherever a coat is needed; it is
indispensable for traveling, shop
ping or touring. It protects alike
the dressy dress and the opposite
dress. Every weJtydxessed woman
has one long coat. It is fashionable
in every material from white serge
through all the cheviots, water
proofs, to black broadcloth. The se
vere English coat is stunning for the
smart set. while the picturesque

In the choice of a two-piece frock
for afternoon wear, nothing could
be prettier than that shown in the
first illustration. The material used
was a soft silk, not having so much
dressing as a foulard and still not
so thin or soft as a meBsaline. The
foundation was a reseda green and
the shadow dots were a deft blue
an odd combination to be sure, but
a very effective one nevertheless.
Black satin brought out the motif of
the design and added a smart touch
at the waist.
THE HAREM SKIRT.
The harem skirt? No, it died a
natural death. Though one does oc
casionally hear about and see the
pantaloon skirt. The one pantaloon
leg or "hobble" skirt into which my
lady had to step very snugly about
a year ago, was either ungraceful or
disgraceful, or both.

Some have peplums or coat-skirts set

coat, very becoming

Large empire rever collars or big
ripple sailor collars are extremely
chic, but the collarless coat is an
easy challenge to the amateur dress
maker, being finished around the
neck with flat braid or galloon. Some

Man Eating Wild Men.
In the celebrated Travail es" of Ed
ward Webb (1590) are dozens of stories
that would make Munchausen turn
green with envy. One of the most cele
brated of these Is his 6tory of the wild
men of Prester John, which is as follows:
"In the court of Prester Iohn there la
s wllde man and another In the high
street of Constantinople whose allow
ance Is every day a quarter of raw
mutton, and wben any man dyeth for
some notorious offence then they are
allowed every day a quarter of man's
flesh. These wllde men are chained
fast to a post every day, the one In
Prester John's court d. the other in the
high street of Constantinople, each of
them having a man tell about their
shoulders, snd an over their bodyes

England's Uncrowned King.
Of the long line of kings which have
ruled England since the days of Wil

ago, there has been only one un
crowned king. King Edward V.. the
boy king, who met an untoward fate in
the lower of London in 1483, Is the
only monarch who reigned without re
ceiving the church's blessing or the
formal homage of his subjects. Some
people Include Lady Jane Grey among
England's monarch. If this doubtful
claim Is allowed England's only un
