How Jet and Rhinestones Add to the Glitter of the Fashion able Costume. And How Lace I. Swathed in Many En. circling Folds-The Fashionable Family of Greene. rdpecial Correspondence of Tax INDKPENDUNT.1 E W YORK, APRIL 2.-IT IS CER. tainly not the right thing to study hats when Patti is doing her per functory middle-aged best in "La Traviata," but I own I did neglect Violetta for a space last evening to consider Earing millinery. The impression that April headgear.makes, as you see it in on audi ence, is one of very big and very soft, deep taited flowers and of excessively long m esamers. One woman in every three within the range of miy opera glass had so many ribbons and so much lace behind that she was obliged to take the accumula tions round into her lap and set guard over them. In at least half a dozen near by in stances the floating scarfs would have reached the floor. Hat crowns, I noted, with a wonder that refused to let the everlasting "why" be sat isfied by fnshion's invariable and only an swer, "beeause," were either microscopic and flat or mioroscopio and tall. The tall crowns were few but pronounced; the flat crowns were many and madeof jet in a ma jority of instances. Both tall crowns and flat crowns had perpendleular bows-never a great number of them-for trimming, at the extreme rear; and wired apparently to the tallest bow, or else standing out from viy suspicion of support, like a New Eng SPRING MVENING DRERees. land spinster, was a straight and sky-roerc in flower stem with an immense jonquilor fleur-de-li stretching up from the top of it on tiptoe. With the jet crowns went lacy brims, Irish point ordinarily. With the jet went also, and not always harmoniously, rhino stones. As, for coinmple, in lb. nearest box sat a pretty blonde in green. Her at tendant swain discovered something the matter with a glittering hairpin, and, obh diently, she bent her head to have the trouble remedied. This means, of course, that she was taller than her knight, but in New York such a disproportion is getting so common that we do not find it an in congruity. However, the bending of her head dis covered a glittering star of diamonds (or rhinestones) as her hat crows, with needles of jet radiating from it. The hat brim was of white lace, with one huge, rugged, brown ish-yellow chrysanthemum scattering its petals over the back, and. one streamer of lace, another of green watered ribbon. There are "flewer hats" this spring, as there have been in years before, and one on the bead of a little married woman in front, THE APRIL IDEA. very much devoted to her husband, who in turn was deeply absorbed in the girl who i sat on his other side, was made of daisy stems twisted to a point on the top of her head and then. coming down in straight 1 lengths to the edges of the brim, like the fool's.oaps we used to braid of rushes when we were little and played in the meadows, except that the peak, instead of being a high one, was a peak only in name. Pink and white English daisies were knotted into a wreath to frame the pretty, flushed, uneasy face and a big daisy bunch nodded and - shook just over one ear. One of the prettiest bats anywhere in sight was worn by a young woman with dark blue eyes, a dainty pink in her cheeks and perfectly white ourly hair. It was of silvery gray crepe do chin., with a comical little conical crown of the same stuff braided and a loose petaled, silky gray poppy touched with pale yellow filling in all the front over the eyes. It had a wide chiffon scarf at the back, caught together in twi ' three places with poppies and narto 'ibbons. Thb was a good deal of pink and black and a oid deal of yellow, but most, per haps, of green. Earn and puools suited fsmoudly one tall and handsome matron with a warm flush of color who sat in our immediate vicinity. Her hat was jet and cream colored lace as I remember it, with brownish-purple hour-dt-lie, rising em phatic and defiant, and %rith winding drap eries of corns chifon caathed about the shouldo s to soften the impressioneof world conqueoirng activity. I do not know that I ever saw 47 much black treading close upon the tordea with, out allowing itself to stopover the frontiers of mourning. There is ni particulare-sa caon why dull jet should le rseervQ \Wth" "no trespassing" signs for the exalwry tese of those who are had, and yet at tlrst glance there is an inclination to warn off poachers when one sees it appropriated by women - who obviously are merry. ilack chiffon '1 aid dull jet are sand much in combination s the most striking instance I have notice ii beinig the headwear of a young girl, scarce 18, in pale green and black bengalinie, ivim e set iue an excellent example in following h hignor Vaelro singing, "Alifredo," If rnot b the mature Patti, with Interest end entho e siasm. The chiffon was orimped into widt and luxuriant frills that twisted themselves two or three times round her little head with something the effect of an overflowing And most generous eastern tureen. East frill was edged with narrow and ourly black ostrich trimming. The frills were built upon a basis of dull jet in a tiny oval crown, from which upstarted pale green, juicy looking stalks, bearing pale green and black jonquils. By the way, there is an innovation in real mourning and one that softens the incen gruity when weeds obtrude themselves at the opera. I do not think I have seen in years a fashienable widow who looked so nearly comfortable physically as a young and pale pretty one just across the aisle in an orchestra chair. whose bonnet was quite the usual bonnet of crape and chiffon, but whose long enveloping veil was black net with simply a erape border at the bottem. The subetitution of the lighter and less suf focating material ought to make an appre. ciable difference in the health average this summer. Easter will bring out pale greens and whitey greens and watery greens of deep, intense shades, with grass greens to keep them company, and fern greens and moss greens and greens that can be named after nothing but the grasskopper. There is a very delicate "pompadour" green that is blue at night, sad there is a lily green whose highest ambition it is to copy after the stem of the valley lily. Two Easter frocks that came my way this morning were worth looking at, both of them. One was a rough cloth of mignonette green, which is a dull, pale shade, very pretty for you if you are just the right woman, but as unbecoming as any color under heaven if you are the wrong one. To wear it with effect you should have some little color, and you should preferably be light, though if von fulill the first requisite it doesn't matter so much about the blondness or brunette ness of your complexion, which is much the same as saving if you don't eat candy and do take plenty of exercise out of doors you can wear a much greater variety of colors than if you spoil your skin through your moeth and ale a sluggard. But to return to our muttons. The mignonette green frock had yoke and sleeves of a darker green. The plain skirt was out of two widths, the front fitted about the hips and with Vs out away and fittoe in with velvet, the bask with one bite seanm. The waist material was shirred be neath the yoke and over a tight lining that fastened under the arm. A V of dark vel vet was added to match the skirt, and to the plain tight sleeves were adjusted semi circular pieces of velvet gathered in flaring cape-like fashion and hanging to the elbowe. The general effect wae simple enough, yet start, which it all the cominendation en L~ecter toilet needs. Tlho other Eeter outfit was a bliatu aill) vi'e hair frock brocaded in Indian red. It tad a plain bell skirt with a band of muu broidery at the foot and a jacket of rod cloth, without darte, opening over a white vest and belted with a band of embroidery. Its red sleeves had tops of the figured goods and to be worn with it was a red star toque with black jonquils. An April idea which rejoices the heart of one of the most blooming girls in the sity is a cape of sream-colored lace gathered into a black velvet yoke, cut in vandykes and finished with fringe. The effect is unique, but not nupleasing *in these days when many variations sae watked on the general blank and white there. Two pretty evening frocks helong with an Easter trousseau; they give you a very good idea of the ease of mind with which at pres ent we indulge in ribbons. One is of sheer, ivory white silky stuff, threaded with silk embroidery in pals yellow and lily green. The short bodice is put on fall, fastened diagonally in front, and trimmed with a deep flounce about the shoulders and bowe of yellow ribbon on the shoulders. The skirt has a demi-train, a velvet hem and a ruche of yellow ribbons. Plain white silk is used in the second ex ample, with a novel ribbon corselet of four, bands with fluttering bows of green. The neck is trimmed with lace put on wide and falling very full over the shoulders, There are shoulder bows of green velvet and-tell it not outside of Gothamn-the long gloves are green. These are days, in good truth, when we pan court to the leaves. ELLEN OsnonN. O'opyright. New spring wraps at Fowles' Cash Store. COMING TO HELENA. DR .
