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.
Coming Attraction at the Howell
Palatka theater goers will enjoy a
special treat on the night of April
19th when the farce comedy Prexy's
Proxy will be presented by local tal
ent in the Howell theater.
This is a delightful two act play
chock full of life and action. Many
comical and amusing situations are
caused by two college students who,
on the spur of the moment well, if
you were to hear all about it now
maybe you wouldn't feel like going
to see it.
And remember, a boil on the neck
is worth two in the kettle. The
seats at the box office won't do you
a bit of good unless you go and get
them before they are are all gone.
Get your reservations early. All re
served seats are on sale at the Grand
box office. If you have already
bought a general admission ticket
you may get it exchanged for a re
served seat by paying twenty five
cents at the box office providing all
the reserved seats have not been sold.
There are only a limited number of
these seats left.
The Putnam orchestra will render
a number of selections before the'lift
ing of the curtain and during the in
termission; several vocal solos will be
given by the best Pala'tka songsters.

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.
Reubens is the same close-margined,
small-profited, merchant, whom
the courts a while back refused to let
charge $25 for a roast ham.
