Nearly nil girls look their best In the silky and filmy frocks thej' wear for evening, and of course they are likely to know this. Therefore, every once in n while the up-to-date young person is apt to Insist on a new party frock, and to keep matters stirring un til she gets It. But she Is not exacting as to material, as n rule. Pretty col ors and smart style In the making are the things that captivate her. It Isn't a bad Idea to encourage the acquirement of a new evening or after noon frock, especially as an Incentive to the nvernge girl who needs to lenrn to sew.

Three hats belonging to three classes of millinery Invite you to familiarize yourself with their distinct character istics. Otherwise, when you go out to buy you are liable to make a mistake, unless you Intend to invest in an as sortment of millinery. Some enterpris ing and smart shops now place a small tag In each hat for the enlightenment, of bewildered customers. This little tng bars a legend which places the hat In the right class. These little tags say with finality: "This hat Is for sports wear," or "This hat is for trav eling," or "This hat Is for afternoon wear" and "This hat Is for morning," etc., etc. At this rate we may expect a hat for high noon; we already have them for the "wee sma' hours." In the group shown here the hat at the' left Is for sports wear. It Is of oyster-white silk in a heavy crepe weave, with feayly colored disks to give It the right vivacity. The faclug Is of white milliners' braid, and a single long and handsome quill appears to have lit on the brim. In millinery, as In other sports clothes, there In no limit to the courage of color. For street w?ar or traveling or morn ing wear, the small turban of black satin and straw braid demonstrates that a tint muy scorn color of any kind and yet achieve the pinnacle of smart ness. This shape Is a miracle of be comlngncss and It is finished In the best possible way with a satln-llned curling quill In black, fastened by a strap of satin with Hatln-covered but tons nt the ends.

On the Southland trains many a smart motor coat Is to be seen worn temporarily as a traveling wrap, or carried over the arm of maid or foot man and disposed of In the drawing' room compartment with the hand lug gage. It Is surprising how many of these coats are of pontine a material with glossy, waxed outer surface and Inner surface of soft silk or satin sometimes- of cloth. And the colors are wonderful. Pontine coats with borders of fur are especially In favor. and since this material Is warm, as well as light, atid sheds water as suc cessfully as any actual leather coat fabric, It Is much In demand for mo toring wraps. One of the Iiandsom est pontine coats of the season falls in ripples below a graceful crossed sash-glrdle and Is edged at the foot with a broad band of beaver matching the beaver collar and deep cuffa.
