In and Out Among the Side Shows of the March Openings-Concerning That Hat. (precial Correspondence of THE INDEPENDENT. I EW YORK, MARCH 8.-ARE YOU so blessed by nature as to take at) interest in parasols? I say "blessed" because ,a capacity for wonder and amaze, if not for reverence, is one of the greatest gifts of nature. and one must be without this gift to look at apa sasol exhibit and remain unmoved. Somewhere or other this morning I ran across a "creation"--that's a word I never use unless I happen to be so hard up men tally that 1 can't think of another one-of silver colored chiffon, with a long handle of ivory most fantastically eut into eheruba' heads and wings, surrounded by rose a wreaths sand ribbons. About the top of the parasol was a little frill of a most vivid azalea pink chiffon, resting on a deeper frill of gray chiffon, darker than silver. The body of the cover was splashed with azaleas, pink and pink and white, their brown stems thrust deen in the tangle of flounces, pink and ailvey, about the bot tom. There were pink velvet bows with long streamers that had some connection, more less reasonable, but not now distinctly re membered, with this fantastic bit of pret trne~a. I wonder If any woman will buy it; wonder if wonr-'.1 -vr did or do or will buy r v enicLI nla.ir I I ; of cloud arclritecture. hugi o, g0,0+ot I ::,ýa is a joy for just about ns Isnly unIuutua sar tih sunset colors; or at the best, for as long as a rose blooms or a lily shines. There was another dome-shaped pavilion -1 suppose I mioht strain a point farenough to call it a fairy tent if I felt complaisant- I of scarlet, chiffon, weirdy and wildly ruffled f and frilled with scarlet gauze. Huge scarlet r and black butterflies, with beady jet eyes i and antennia, went creeping and crawling I about on the top of it, slowly waving their j wings. I can't say that to me it looked al together canny, but I must somehow have E been wrong about it, for it awakened gen- I eral and genuine enthusiasm. Can't you tell usually from a parasol just 1 the type of woman who ought to carry it? Only, of course, the decrees of fate almost always somehow prevent, and it is the rarest I thing, in point of fact, for anybody to con nect with the foreordained and predestined article. There was a heavy cream-colored silk in the last lot I looked at: it had a fantasy-that is an impertently developed fancy run wild--in Dresden china for a handle. Somebody had labored over it for a season with water colors, bedecking the cover with strange-colored roses of ab normal size, that seemed to have been studied in an opium dream rather than in a garden, but they weie tied up, as if they were valued, with broad, painted ribbons. I have been haunted all day long by the ghost of its proper owner; a big woman who cuts her dress too low when she is in evening costume, a handsome woman who treads ponderously and as if the whole sidewalk belonged to her. 'The prettiest parasols are the gingham ones that go with the gingham gowns. There are dark blue ones dotted with little pink anrd white daisies, and green ones cov ered with pink thistles, and gray and brown ones on which pink and white clovers bloom sweet and warm until it seems that in yoar ears you have the drone of many bees. A hat or two, though the season has not advanced much in seven days. There is a flisat mottled straw in a window on Fifth ave nue that reminds one of bar k with its brown and its gray and its dull faint green tones. iesmoth bark, I mean, for the straws of which it is braided are beautifully fine. Its crown is hardly more than half an inch hieb. it has a very narrow, but very full rufole of brown chiffon gathered under its edge and standing out all around. It has very long stiings of brown velvet, two inches wide or more. Rising on tiptoe on the crown in the baHk are high bows of blotched ribbon--brown and dark green marked with ecru and pale rink sad hints of blue. If I had trimmied that hat I would have hadl ack-in-the-pulpits for its blossome. 't'he woman or man who designed it, thought otherwise, or lmaybe Jai'kalrel't aulung the "iimportatiouns.' Apple bluos'ouo are its actual adornments, and very pretty they make it, though too suggestiveo of Arcadian bliss to be altogether fii de rsecle. The drawn chiffon hats rebel against the laws of nature as publiuhed in thi: fo''y retions. Supposing a womanur to take one of them into a dry elnte:.e, say I.ii50 feet above sea level among the spur. of the Siorras in (California, it wuald be a charmi ing bit of headgear, but its beauty would it be f-fetched, wouldn't 1m, when she got t there? a A pa!e sage green chiffon hbt is drawn ovr; wiles o: to the substantial part of its brim, which, however, is dwarfed in impor ' tanuce by its unsubstantial part, consistin of a full fall of gauze that must be unmcom. monly troublesome about the temples and ears and eyes. The crown is a soft, fluffy mass of chiffon with darker green satin ribbons knotted through it and maintain ing an easy-going connection with certain bunches of yellow violets and with the long strings behind. Some of the new hats have queer crowns shaved like hour glasses. 1 remember one particularly in a blue and creamy brown checked straw, with trimmings of blue rib bone and brilliantly marked cream and scarlet tulip flowers. Do you like to sit in a room filled with the smell of hyacinths? I fancy I shouldn't conduct myself properly if I did it very long at a time. The spring fashions are somehow hyacinth in their airs and graces and suggestions of unwholesomely sweet perfumes. Take for example the walking gown sketched in the first illustration. It is of porcelain blue summer silk, with flounce and puff of paler blue and black at the bot tom. Between flounces and puff runs a black velvet band. The jacket is turned up with black velvet revers held by big pearl buttons. There are more revers in front to give it a sufficiently distinguished and directoire air, and from the neck comes a full of lace deep enough and full enough to drown one's self in. The black velvet Gainsborough hat has blue plumes and blue bachelors' buttons for trimmings. It's a picturesque outfit, but one hardly conductive to sti ong, sensible or wholesome thinking. ,)r take the cape of silver gray ladies' cloth that is drawn with a smart French coat beside it. Its fluted cape of blue vel vet must smother one's fresh notions of life, as celery is smothered when you bleach it. or make all one's ideas high shouldered. The coat with it is supposed to be of cream cloth shot with gray; it has a half adjusted front, fastened with pearl buttons to a long, straight cream-colored plastron. The sleeves are frilled into culfi and there are gray and steel trimmings. A couple of simpler frocks will be a relief to close with. The plaid calling dress rio Stoed is of cream-colored and brown cam el's hair.
