AMUSEMENTS MERMAID FROCK STAR TLES THE ENGLISH London, April 15 The freak fash-! ions which inevitably accompany springtime madness promise this sea son to surpas anythng that has gone before in the way of daring and nov elty. Dame fashion has been having a confab with Father Neptune and the net result is decidedly "fishy." One of them is the mermaid frock which is a closely-fitting entirely composed of pailettes which overlap one another in the approved fish-scale style. These pailettes are of irides cent shades of silver, green and blue.' No trimming or ornament of any kind is worn with the frock and corsets are doffed so that the sinuous mermaid effect is complete. Another fishy fad is the girdle com posed of painted sea-shells. Jjth this is worn a head-firess of similar design or, maybe, of tinted pearl. For those whose systems cannot as similate too much sea-breeze, a few Hawaiian modes have been thrown in The one which is likely to excite most comment is the Hawaiian skirt. This extends from the waist to just below the knee and is composed of coarse, matted, hay-colored fringe and has the ragged primitive effect of the garments of South Sea Islanders.

New York, April 15 Avowing that Anna Luther, moving picture actress devoured $404.53 worth of delicacies for which she did not pay, Reuben, delicatessener" has gone to court to collect. Caviar and goose livers are mostly what Anna ate, declared Reu ben, but she did not pass up Italian olive oil, Norwegian sardines, nor Chinese bird nest puddings, said Rue ben. Month after month, starting from September and ending in January of, this year, Miss Luther dropped into Reubens and secured appeasement for her hearty appetite with such coarse morsels of food as satiate the palate of royalty and chorus girls, he claims, and only $200 of the original $604.53 bill would she ever pay.
