One cannot Now That Christmas is Over, Special Bargains May Be Secured By Discriminating Buyer Now that Christmas and the Christmas shopping rush is over, Honolulu's Chinatown has special reasons for attracting the discrim inating buyer. Large stocks of goods have arrived late and are still available for the shrewd pur chaser. Meanwhile the staple ar ticles such as jades, gold, silks, etc., offer a. strong appeal. The Chinese and Japanese excel in the art of manufacturing ar ticles that are harmonious, in good taste, exotic in design and color ing, maybe, yet withal possessing the deft Eastern toueh of unique ness. One need not have a plethoric purse when shopping here, for values and prices compare well with those of stores in other parts of the city, and especially because here the Oriental goods are the specialties. The greatest industry of China, the distribution of which is world wide, is making silks and bro cades, heavily embroidered with curious native designs. In nearly all the brightly lighted windows of the bazaars and shops numerous articles of apparel are being shown, from the heavy quilted dressing jackets of half or full Novelties Good.

It is quite an unusual, half cape, half Jacket affair, trimmed with a huge fur collar, and two wonderful bejew eled belt buckles. Fur is used in every conceivable way for trimmirfg hats as well as for trimming gowns, and no one should be without a small touch of it on some part of the costume, if it is only a bit on the hat buckles. Buttons of soft seal and mole skin are quite a rage for .trimming tailored hats. They are also used to finish coats, and used to button sweaters. Flowers with part petals of fur are not entirely new, but some of the designs offered this year have never been shown be fore. The ostrich is no longer burying its head in the sands of oblivion, for now his pluses are seen wherever the world of fashion is gathered to gether. It is simply a question of finding new ways for their use. Per haps one of the most unique hats of the season boasted an entire hat of uncurled brown ostrich feathers.

C, Dec. 12. ; When the open season for big game opened with the convening of con- gress all the arms and ammunition i were gobbled-up by the prohibitionists and advocates of woman suffrage. ; They appeared to monopolize the en ' tire show and other gunners must be I satisficted with small fry until they ' are out of the way. All the trouble loomed up when congressional leaders promised that votes should be permitted on proposed congressional amendments providing for nation-wide temperance and equal suffrage. It was suggested that this would be done before the Christmas holiday recess, December 17 being ten tatively fixed for prohibition and the following day for suffrage. Whereupon the women and the temperance folks swooped down en masse and took possession of the capital city. They have been proselyting among the na tional legislators almost day and night. Such buttonholing has seldom been witnessed. Prohibition leaders frankly admit that their chance for success lies in bringing out the complete membership of the house. In such an event they count precisely 290 votes, exactly sufficient to adopt the constitutional! amendment, which was approved by the senate last summer. Failure to reach the coveted 290 will be meas ured by the number of absentees among the advocates of "dryness." It is realized that a full house is among the unaccomplished miracles. Those who favor suffrage knew tha time was not quite -ripe. With the meeting of congress they urged delay until some period early in the New Year, by which time it was hoped to crown the long fibers were allowed to fall over the sides to the brim. A simple band of grograine ribbon was noticed when the feathers were lift ed slightly. A very chic ornament of white os trich feathers was placed at the back of a very little toque.- The feathers had been cut away from the quill, and bound to two upright wires in such a way that they looked very much like tails of fluffy fur. pin wheel made in the same way finished the fancy.
