iw 'they exhibited , and the other five were
lack and white. Yodda and basket straws
evall over the lately loved rico and Swlso
eaves , and nearly every straw has a satin
dish.
STHAW NOVELTIES.
Perhaps ono of the most conspicuous novel-
lea of which we nro destined to nee a great
eal later on Is the rice straw , woven with
ilk and velvet baby ribbon , nnd it was only
o bo expected that plaid straws should make
bold f how. They will undoubtedly bo the
eaturv of the ocason , and pretty , too , for
vlth smart chocked ribbon , bright orna-
nenU and bunches of gorse or heather ,
hey posscsa n style nnd cheerfulness of
tolor few women can resist.
Next In Importance after the plaid nro
.Ionian striped stiaws that are being tcci-
.atlvcly offorcd hero , though they do say no
lack of ni.tikct for them Is found In Paris ,
riiuro ; they are to wear loose soft straws In
tailor shapes , llio brims sago green or
gi'iidai'ino 1/luo / and the crown ccnlso , clear
.vi'llow or warm ilahll.r purplo. A now Idea
lu the arrangement of trlmmlnga Is to pile
everything possible all on one side , or to c'.i-
crust tlio crown with whatever In the way
of ribbon or flowers lo preferred , atul have
the brim qulto plain. In adjusting the head
peai' a toque , if worn , la net well back from
the face , nnd this effect Is hlghtonod by the
uprolllng brim. Tlio small bonnets nro also
made to retreat ns far as possible , but any
liead covering that boasts the least brim lo
dragged far ever the eyes.
Small bonnets , It Is good to relate , are
henceforth to bo tied on with strings. Nar
row ribbons are in use for this purpose
now , and the ribbons tlo in qulto a respectable -
blo arrangement of loops and ends Just
under the chin. Later on the most bocomlnR
llttlo wreaths of violets , forgct-mo-nots nnd
cowslips , fastened flat on strips of net nro to
be adopted as chin straps with gauzy theater
bonnets. These last ore scarcely moro than
llttlo whiffs of whlto tulle or gauze , sprinkled
with black spangles and garnished with a
tuft ot roses on one side.
nVroatlm ot flowers fastened to the head
by a big back comb are adopted with theater
'tollots ' , nnd another now style Is a small
conu shaped cap of iiet.'imtlrely covered with
what are called sanguine red spangles , and
having two tiny odtrldi tips curling up from
the front llko the delicate antennae ot an
Insect ,
A UKfG'N OF SPANGLES.
Spangles do not eoem to lose In 'the least
their pnetlgo as the season goes matching
on. Onu dressmaker shows how she Is mak
ing up cxpumlvo Scotch ginghams and
French linens with spangled skirts and
.waists. Of course thcso are not to bo wash
suits and of course they are only for women
of practically unlimited wardrobe , but the
matter Is significant , nevertheless ,
The French linona mentioned above are
linvlng a marked Influence on the early shop
pers for tlila goods Is only linen In part , Is
regarded at ) of tougher quality than the heat
ginghams und U beautifully checked and
titrtpcd. In every possible variation ot red and
blue. The dressmakers say thcro Is a dis
tinct erazo for nuking up all these wash
gcods on the bias and embroidery by the
thousands of yards Is also consumed for the
spring making of cotton materials.
The muslins , and they are nearly all In
bold primary colors , embroidered In "black
qulto fancifully , demand lace In their com
position , or it U a popular fancy to edge the
countlfas rufllc-s nn skirts aud waUU with
narrow black satin ribbon.
The color lace that leads Just now Is de
scribed best as "age yellow , " This has not
a lingo of the butter gold In It , but Is thn
soft mellow tint that couu-s to heirlooms
long laid away In guarded trunks. Ago yel
low U also the new and popular color ot the
evening silks and u.ultm , taking the place of
cream and ivory whlto. This tint has com *
in with the new straight watered Hue called
"molro Imperial. " Justice demands an en
thusiastic recommendation of the ( bordered
foulards which are Just out , and of tbo soft
light lovely taffeta chlnnls. With its new
found border the foulard costume needs no
other trimming , and for cool and beautiful
ummer shirt waUts. the taffeta cbluols Is
ure to < tkv the palm.
LENTEN MUFFS.
A bit of attractive frivolity Ui t hn caught
such novelties have been noted as n gold
tcwmeled handle having a tiny watch sur
rounded by brilliants set In the vtcy end.
Another gold nnd crystal handle for three
Inches up is hollow , and , touching n spring ,
off lllcs tlio gold o.ip nnd ' the cmply space la
filled with smelling salts' . Still n third has a
slit In the Ivory shaft , Into which slips a
sm.--.ll gold-rimmod lorgnon , fastened to the.
handle's end by n gold hinge. The pi-Ice ot
these Is commrasiirato with their beautiful
material nnd exceeding novelty , but far moro
stable and qulto as attractive arc the gaudily
striped and checked taffeta and gingham sun
shades. Some of thcso , by Uio way , sturdy
fellows , with carved wood handles , are so
arranged Hint at any tlmo the cotton cover
can bo removed , washed and neatly replaced
again by whosoever may own ono. An ec

SPRING COLLAIIS.
Shirt waist collars would deserve moro
exhaustive consideration at the fashion chron
iclers' hands did they exhibit any marked
variety over those wo were last year. So
far , everything rolls this spring nnd a good
many cuffs as well as collars have scalloped
nnd embroidered edges or are hemstitched.
There is a fondness exhibited , by tasteful
women , for wearing plain lavender linen cuffs
and collars , with nhlrts of lavender nnd whlto
stripes , plain blue , with n checked blue nnd
black shirt , and so on through the category
of colors ,
A slight diversity over the usual method
Is that of passing a bright ribbon twice round
a rolling linen collar und tying It In n neat
bow behind. In front a pretty pin is caught
In the ribbon , but. this has not done away
with the string tie of vivid plaid silk or a
big cushion ascot niado of the most lively
striped satin that la worn llko a cheerful sort
of plaster across many feminine chests.
Quaint and cool are the little lawn bauds
in pa'o yellow , and pink , and tan color , folded
narrowly and booking eccretly beneath the
chin and very small accordion plaited lawn
bows , On the name counter with thcso are
whlto Swiss muslin scarfs having their arrowhead
row-head ends embroidered In black , or deep
yellow , or bright blue ( lowers , this marking
Olio of the latest stages of tbo neck scurf.
MIXED COSTUMES.
A great deal of false prophecy Is being
made Just now to the end that mixed coa-
ttimco are to no longer bo adopted , espe
cially of an evening. A mixed costume ,
which consists usually of ono serviceable
dark silk skirt or a white molro one , worn
with a variety of waists , Is bound to bo pop
ular so long ns there are women of taste and
limited means.
it Is all very well for Mrs. Astor to de
mand n skirt to match every evening waist
she wears , but thU does not really affect the
great Uws of fashion , and the shops and
dressmakers' show rooms are full of evening
boJlccs of the newest design , to bo worn with
any skill n wardrobe- may tiupply. A fair
example of what Is new In this line Is given
this week. The little waist U made ot pale
Pluk net , Kecked with dark green velvet dots ,
and back and front the net Is laid In a series
of plaits. Hvery plait has an edging of green
velvet baby ribbon , ami the top of the bodice
Is linlahca by a broad scarf of mint green
velvet , drawn through two narrow , brilliant
buckles. ( Mint green velvet epaulettes , edged
with net frills , fall out over light net puffings
that supply the bhort sleeves , and on the left
breast Is fastened a knot of cerise red roses
and light garlands of amllax , The thrco
strings of big mock pearls , tied under either
car with knots of green velvet ribbon , Is ono
oftho Inexpensive aud pretty methods of
ornamenting the throat so greatly In vogue
Just now.
The effect now driven for most earnestly

of color. Ono pretty little thing of cham

velvet nnd 'the square dccolletage outlined

As railroad chaperons Miss Zerelda Wal
lace Ucaty , Mlas Emma C. Hlngbam and Miss
Anna B. Brady hold unique positions among
women workers. They nro emplayt-d by ono
of the largest railroad corporations in Amer
ica to accompany tourist parties sent out by
this road.
Ladles by birth , breeding and education ,
they are all exceptionally charming and may
1)0 counted. In point of salary and congenial
employment , among the successful business
women of America.
Miss Ileaty , when asked about her duties
as a chaperon , laughed and said : " 0. they
nro only nominal , at least that Is what I
have been told by persona who bear of my
frequent trips over the country and the
number of agreeable people I meet , llut
personally I would say my duties are In-
descrlbafalo , first because they are Innumera
ble nnd second , because In a great measure
they depend on what 'turns up. ' I think
you will readily understand that the ( duties
on the trip are seldom , If ever , duplicated.
Of course wo never make two trips with ex
actly the same persons under exactly the
tame conditions ,
"At the beginning of a trip I always go
through the formality of Introducing myself
to every woman In the party , explain my
position and let her clearly understand that
It la my pleasure as well as my duty to have
her call on mo for any Information or as-
slstanco during the trip. Where there are
women traveling alone , or eeve-ral together
unaccompanied by a man , I make myself
especially nice , so they may feel no hesitancy
of calling on mo about the most trivial oc
currence ,
"Of course , I often have the same person
go with mo on different trips. J say go with
mo because they really make their arrange
ments that they may go on the trip where I
am to bo the chaperon , This happens , I am
sure , as often , If not oftencr , to both of the
other chaperons , and wo know each other's
'friends' quite well.
DUTIES OF THE POSITION.
"But to go back to my duties as chaperon :
on the train I see that the ladlea have every
possible comfort. If I notice persona who
elvo evidence of laving traveled llttlo before -
fore I find occaiion to ba 'especially nice , '
giving all luformatlco doilred and making
them reel , as far a possible , at home wluu
I tell you that during the six years I have
acted as chaperon I have .been to Florida at
least -twenty-five times , to California half
as often , and , as for Washington nnd other
short trips , it would be impossible for ma to
say without consideration and much looking
backward. I have certainly seen and known
of some very amusing occurrences , but , of
course , It would never do for mo to tell you
about them. What would -my 'friends' say
at seeing themselves written up.
"So the only -way to find out would bo to
take a trip with me. And I would advise you
to select n Florida .trip. . There you1 will see
tlio greatest number cf bridal couples. You
know wo call oursohes ' .brido and groom pro.
lectors , ' nnd on some trips wo certainly have
our hands full living up to that title , but
never dowe forget our duties In that direct-
tlon. Newly married couples arc sacred , and
we see that they are novur aunoyed by prac
tical Jokes or otherwise.
"You nsk It I had any training for the
position. No , certainly not. Llko other
women , when the necessity arose for me to
make my own living , I took the first thing
offered. In my case the first thing happened
to .lie . librarian In my native town ; then I
.had this position offered. 1 took it , am
here I am. 1 have a vacation in the summer
travel back and forth over the country tin
remainder of the year , making myself useful
fulto other people. Of course , I make man ;
charming acquaintances , and , taken as i
whole , my occupation is pleasant. "

Mr. James Hill of St. Paul , Minn. , tin
president of the Great Northern railroad
is an ardent admltur ot beautiful gems
For a number of years ho has been stcadll )
adding to the treasures of Sirs. Hill's jowe
tex , and seldom visits another city than lib
own without carrying away one of Its great'
cat treasures. Ills especial fancy Is fo
emeralds , and undoubtedly the first collcc
lion of 'them lu America is owned by hit
wife.

( Mr. Hill Is an expert Judge of the tc.v
turo and value ot gems. A Jeweler onu
cnllcd his attention to a sapphire that ap
peared to have unusual luster and brllll.xncj
of color. It was Mid to bo worth a' grcal
price , Aftcrr a careful study of It Mr. Hill
laid It down and explained 'to the Jcwelci
that the slone was most curiously formed
In etratas. The center strata , which was
light , gave the luminous appearance to the
stone , but from the standpoint of purltj
ruined Its intrinsic value.
Mrs. Hill Is very quiet In her taste , and
dor.s not share her husband's love for these
beautiful bits of color. She I'cldom wears
any Jewels , but keeps them safely in a large
box , whore , she says , "It gives ( Mr. Hill
much pleasure ) to look at them , "
The railroad president has , no ho says ,
a box of hU own , In which ho keeps furs ,
for ho Is also a connoisseur of duo cklns
and has collected a good deal ot unusual
sable. Last year , when ho was away from
home , Mrs. Hill opened the sacred box ,
and choosing some of the most beautiful
eablo skins had them arranged as the lin
ing of a great coat totMr. . Hill. On his
return home she showed It to him.
"But you have denuded my box , " ho
cried , "and greatly lessened my treasures. "
Mrs. Hill however , Insisted that hla furs
had simply been put to their proper use.

iBlack popples , roses and violets are the

A most alluring putt ot lorgnctto chain

with double straps of emerald green molro

ng equal lit length.
lUlnclc and whlto effects nro largely In
evidence this spring , both , in utility cos-
umes nnd headwear , and In elaborate cvcn-
ng toilets in which silks , .brocades , nets ,
aces , chiffon nnd very handsome Jet
garnitures are united.
It Is a conservative estimate to say that
wo-tlilrds of the feminine world wears a

bow , made in two loops no ends appearing
> T taffeta , or chiffon , or tulle that Is ue-
: ordlon plaited , is especially stylish.
Krcnch mohair retains all Its acquired
popularity for certain uses in "tho world of
fashion ; and among oilier spring materials
are found some novel and pretty varieties
In serge , armuro , basket , trellis , nnd whip
cord weaves in many stylish patterns , and
jlao very handsome colorings.
All sorts ot ruffling for trimming summer
jowna and evening dresses can bo bought In
he shops all ready for use. It comes in
Ibcrty gauze , chiffon ana lace nil finished
in the cdgo with rows of narrow gathered
iatln ribbon , a little ruche of chiffon , n tiny
> order of flowers , or frills of narrow lace.
Transparent poplins , with a satin sheen
upon them , which seems to have imprisoned
the sunbeams , arc a rival to a similar stuff
with a crinkled weaving , whlcn shows great
tenacity of thread and Is admirable for drap
ing over satin for wo are com'ng to draped
lifsses-and must be prepared for them.
The latest effort of Parisian invention la a
transparent black-lined fabric , which lu
color and appcarauco is. made to represent
; tdtnod glass. It Is perfectly harmonious in
coloring and has a lightly woven cloudlike
design In black all over It. It will bo nn-
; > loyod for 'bodices ' nnd for fronts of dresses
tended with self-colors.
A new and rather extraordinary skirt
neil el has a tunic back and front of a dif-
eront material from the underskirt. If tlio
unlo is of lacu and the underskirt of satin ,
he style is at its best. Another very un
usual siurt nas tnreo overlapping sltlrta
shaped in handkerchief points , aud made at
white glace silk 'mounted ' in cerise silk. Tlio
effect Is very striking.
The shelves and counters of importing and
retail houses are plied with light , beautiful
woolens for spring dresses. Both smooth
and rough-finished fabrics are shown. There
are many changes In weaving and in colois.
Tlio newest stuffs are very light in weight ,
almost like the buntings , etamltips , and can
vas goods of the summer , hut they nro line
all-wool goods , and therefore much wanner
than ono would imagine.
Very prim and exceedingly trim will the
fashionable girl of ' 08 look In the Lenten
costumes being made ready for her use dur
ing that devout season. Black and gray
fabrics take precedence of other styles
made of heather-mixed fabrics stripes , bam ,
etc. , among the tweeds and cheviots. But
whatever the textile , the gown Is bovoro In
effect , being made with plain , close ,
puflless , frllless little sleeves , narrow skirts ,
and habit bodices very simply trimmed
with braid and tailor buttons ,
Hustling silk linings and underskirts have
como to rustle so universally that high-class
