WHO OWNER'S OF
NEW HAVEN ROAD ARE
Road Has 25,544 Stockholders, of
Whom 10.813 Are Women.
The interest which New England
has in the New Haven road is revealed
in figures just compiled showing the
ownership of its stock on January 1
last. The number of stockholders on
Jan. 1, 1915 was 26,544, which .com
pares with 26,240 in 1914, 22,716 in
1913 and 22,106 in 1912.
Of these stockholders 86 3-4 per
cent, live in the four states bf New
York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and
Massachusetts and hold 89 per cent.
of the company's stock. The figures
by states are: New York. 4,312 stock
holders owning 531,390 shares; Con
necticut, 5,646 stockholders owning
236,256 shares; Rhode Island, 821
stockholders owning 43,127 shares;
Massachusetts, 12,259 stockholders
owning 564,996 shares.
Foreign holders of the road's stock
number only 118 and hold 8,791 shares,
which is only 1-2 per cent, of those
Of the present stockholders, ' 11,322
are males, 10,813 females, 3,522 trusts
and guardianships and 887 insurance
companies and other - corportions.
Compared with a year ago,- this is an
increase of 610 in the number of
males, a decrease of 221 in the number
of females, a decrease of 141 in the
number of trusts and guardianships
and an increase of 56 in the number
of insurance companies and other cor
porations. There is no more fallacious idea than
that a railroad like the New' Haven is
owned by a few wealthy individuals.
Its ownership, en the contrary, rests
among many individuals, the vast ma
jority of whom hold not more than
50 shares apiece.
For example, these figures show
that 112,210 or 45.9 per cent, hold from
one to ten shares; 9,688 or 36.4 per
cent.- hold from 11 . to 50 shares and
2,414 or 9.09 per cent, hold from 51 to
100 shares. Only 1,887 or 7.1 per cent,
hold from 101 to 600 shares, 201 or
0.79 per cent hold from 501 to 1,00-0
shares, while only 144 persons bold

Fruits, Berries and Transparent
Perhaps the one distinctive note of
the season's styles in millinery is the
odd and charming use of familiar
fruits and berries for trimming.
On a fascinating little Continental
model shown yesterday, it was of
myrtle green hemp, the turned-up
brim was outlined with scarlet dog
berries and tiny ivy leaves. The finish
was a fleur-de-lis bow in myrtle sat
in rib Don.
A modish Scotch turban had a
crown of white Ottoman satin, the
brim being wood green - braid. For
trimming it had cerise and sand tint

quets on the brim.
Dainty and seasonable was a tur

navy blue, with two wings of the
lighter silk. A graceful veil combin

shape was stylish and effective, al
though its trimming was a simple
aigret or frosted grapes.
More dressy, of course, was a sail
or in white braid and chiffon. This
had a transparant brim, through which
a wreath of fine flowers showed. A
band and streamers of black velvet
ribbon gave a Frenchy touch. The
finish was a white ostrich aigret.
A chaplet of orange buds was the
garniture of a natty .little black chip
turban, nne foliage ' being combined
with the flowers. An orange fancy
formed the nnish.
Shadow brims are in high favor. A
large sailor of chiffon cloth had
brim revealing daisies. Its crown was
of sand braid and the trimming was
