Evening Wrap a La Kimono.
Kimono styles have Invaded tbe realm of evening wraps In tbe shape of an Interesting coat made of satin, the fronts rolling back and the cuffs turned back In typical kimono fash ton. Both fronts and cuffs are trimmed with embroidery of the Jap anese type, done In tbe color of the wrap. another wrap, cut In some way Wilcb makes It drape from the shoul ders, has a pointed fold falling from the middle of the back down almost to the waist, like a mock hood. If a bordered material Is used, the point Is edged both sides with the border, which runs down both fronts as well. Or. sometimes, bands of Oriental em broidery make the trimming, the point further emphasized by a tassel of Ilk, which dangles from the very tip. A Smart Cloth Gown. The old-fashioned idea that the best (own was the silk gown has long since been forgotten, and now we see towns of much more style and cost liness developed in cloth. The shops are full of exquisite textures and the woman of fashion will select mono tones of becoming shades for her new frocks. The gown shown Is one of rare good style and suitable to devel opment In French cashmere, tfrap Tete, Henrietta or lady's cloth. The model might serve as a reception gown in one of the light pastel shades of cloth or silk. Tbe skirt Is the new thirteen-gored one, with plaits stitch' d in tuck effects. It fits smoothly over the hips and flares with Infinite grace at the bottom. The deep col lar, continued by trimming straps to the waist-line. Is very stunning. Tbe joke may be made of Italian lace, and the cuffs of a deeper tone of velvet to match the girdle. A frill of lace may finish the sleeves or a deep- tight cuff of the yoke material. Large cut steel or silver filigree buttons or me dallions of lace may adorn the trim mlng straps. Needlework on Summer Gowns. Summer gowns show some needle work effects, especially the shirt waists, which are trimmed with em broidered bands. I.lnen huck Is be ing utilized for bands, lending Itself readily to flat darning In a variety of patterns. On plain materials a new Idea In darning, which does not re quire a pattern, Is being shown, and this promises to be popular, not only on wash goods, but on heavier mate' rials, and even on silks and satins. Kew designs aro being shown In the canvas and etamlne darning, and some handsome summer shirt waists will have Insertions and edgings of a new variety of crochet, the founda tion of which Is done on a wide wood en needle like a hairpin, and Is really no more than our old halrplo work and the finish a . fine crochet done on very thin thread In a simple, but most becoming design. These trim mlngs are not difficult to make and launder . beautifully. Tatting In wheels and edges will be used more or less, and all of this work Is of the kind that can be picked up and work ed on In odd moments, so that It Is not difficult of accompllsment. Pretty Dinner Gown. The prlneeps gown has found espe cial favor with the fair debutante this season and some exquisite frocks built on these lines .have been seen on youthful and at tractive wearers Our sketch sug gests this type of gown in white crepe radium, the skirt finished at foot with three deep tucks. The decollete neck Is filled In at bust with white lace me' dallions laid over gold, and narrow lace similarly treated outlines the neck all around, as well as the lower part of bodice and short sleeves, the latter filled In with a double frill of white lace run with gold threads. Leather Ruffles a Novelty. A nouveaute from Paris are ruf flea made of leather, which are sewed around tbe bottom of the skirt to pro tect there from the dust and dirt of the streets. The ruffles are made of 1 leather of moderate weight, dyed to match the color of the gown. They are fulled on to a leather band which Is attached by means of buttons and buttonholes to the bottom of the gown. In this way these ruffles need only to be worn In the street and can be taken off and brushed and cleaned. They protect the gown better than one can Imagine as well as giving the required stiffness to bold out a skirt well around the bottom. WML Tftft jBk Dim It Is said that white will prevail In millinery this spring. Both big and little hats are seen. but none of medium size. A turban of crimson ehlfon has a wreath of popples around It. Tiny gold roses are Been on some of the smartest of the dark, rich hats. Empire models in tea gowns are first favorites among the graceful gar ments. Black velvet trimming Is to play quite an Important part on spring dresses. An exaggerated long waist and blouse front Is no longer considered good style. Graduated bands of velvet on silk gowns is an old-time feature of pres ent modes. Tips are absent from most of the new shoes. There's a very pretty bit of style in the long, unbroken vamp. Tailored Shirt Waists. Tailored shirt waists are never en tirely abandoned by the fashionable women and hold their place In sport ing attire. The now models are much like those with which we are familiar. plaited at the shoulders and with a shirt cuff rather than a long fitted cuff, the most authoritative makers having apparently decided that since the more elaborate blouse has set aside the Bhirt waist, save for very tailorlike costume, the waist may well be as mannish and severe as possible. There are, however, some heavy waists of tailor style not so conven tional. One bus the familiar plaited body, but a rolling low collar and el bow sleeves with turnback cuffs. This Is shown in linen, and a number of severe linen models have tbe 6hort sleeves with plain turnback cuff. New Ripple from Paria. Dainty evening wrist bags, which cry "Paris" from every fold of the silk of which they are composed, are among the new novelties. They are quaint little brocaded affairs, with jeweled clasps. Each contains a lit tle mirror, a powder puff, and a touch of the bloom of youth. Ribbon Embroideries. Ribbon embroideries for dress gar niture are an example of old things masquerading In new uses. We have long been familiar with this pretty style of work on nil sorts of fancy articles for milady's use, but In the new ornamentation of dress acces sories these appenr altogether differ ent. Many nn otherwise quite ordi nary gown owes its air of distinction 2 STREET COSTUMES FROM PARIS. The costume at the left is of violet cloth. The bell skirt Is finished with a deep flounce headed and trimmed with braid. The short bolero is trim med with braid and buttons. The waistcoat and collar are of velvet em broidered with gold. The girdle Is composed of hands of braid finished In front with knots and buckles. The sleeves are plaited Into the armliole, then finished just below the elbow with cuffs of the braid and also cuffs of the embroidered velvet. The other to a Utile of this decoration on vest and cuff, bodice or belt. Given the materials and the right sort of rib bon can now be had at almost any embroidery or department store the work goes easily and quickly, and al most any woman who can use n needle at all can get satisfactory dec orative effects with these French em broidery ribbons. Small floral pat terns are the prettiest, and one stitch makes a petal, while touches of gold thread and spangles or beads can be introduced with the happiest results. Done on lace in scattered sprays or little wreaths the ribbon work Is par ticularly effective and. entre nous, is a great Blunt for refurbishing and freshening a gown that needs the touch. Empire Gowns Gain Favor. Empire gowns are slowly but surely gaining In favor nmong the smartest dressed women. When properly made they are truly graceful and pictur esque. The soft diaphanous materials are preferred and the majority employ Bhort little boleros of lace or embroid ery. An effective suggestion Is pale- green moussellne de sole over self- tone taffeta, with bolero of green fllk eyelet embroidery. A fichu arrange ment of the niousseline finishes the decollate waist and two black velvet bows In front give a pretty finishing touch. Velvet Waist BlouRe of violet velvet slightly draped at the bottom and ornnmented with buttons. A shaped band of the velvet bordered with a plaiting of taffeta to match, forms the collar, over which Is a turnover of em broidery In deli cate colors. The waistcoat Is composed of over lapping pieces of the velvet, ornamented with little but tons. It is finished with little lnec nifties. The chemisette Is also of lace and the girdle is of the velvet. The full sleeves nre finished with cuffs made like the waistcoat, und also with prettily draped lace ru tries, Bancroft Pudding.

SHOT AMOftG There was a church trial Ip this Imrg not many days ago, n case where the scandal and Its history were kept beautifully smothered, and where the vultures of the press," as one aged minister called them, were baffled from Alpha to Omega, and from A to Izzurd. The trial came off, and the verdict was deferred for a month or two. So much for the trial. What hap pened during the first session thereof Is what concerns tills story. Numerous reporters came to the trial and got nothing, which is the reason no newspaper printed more than a casual mention of the case. When the eager scribes gathered at the church they were received with great courtesy, and also with the In formation that the proceedings were strictly secret. They were then herd ed Into an anteroom and told that they would be given a little information later. Gathered In this anteroom, the boys chatted, laughed and formulated Imag inary narratives. This soon palled up on them, and they began to figure out some method of getting at least nn Inkling of the doings. Their' anteroom was behind another anteroom, and this room, In turn, was separated from the auditorium of th church by a big double dxr, the kind of door where you push both halves and emerge in the middle. The boys CHOATE Iff CHILDHOOD DAXS It Is Rtated of our late coruscating ambassador at the court of St. James, the Hon. Joseph II. Choate, that when be was a little chap he and his sis ter hail been forbidden by parental authority to go in swimming, or even to wade on the shore. Nevertheless, the pair soon made their way to the beach, and naturally were exposed to the devices of Sitan. "You might at least take off your phoes and stockings." suggested ihe tempter, well aware to what this would lend. "Nobody will see us." said the acquiescent "Joe" to his sis ter. "God will see us." was the reply. "Hut be won't tell." returm d the sharp and precocious infant, who was already tasting the sweets of forensic victory. As no effective response served to suggest Itself, transgression soon followed, mid its results were finally emphasized by the plastic hand of their mother. In one of bis rambles the Impend ing ambassador fell In with a little girl who was weeping bitterly. "What VACHSHVffD A The good nnt tired, philosophic Ger man dachshund has always been re garded as more or less of a joke Iu this country. Even In the Fatherland he is a staple for jesting. His elon gated body, his crooked legs, bis ani mated tail, his resemblance to a sail sage who could fail to make some sort of Joke about a dachshund? But the dachshund has a very seri ous side, mid a work in life. "Dachshund" means "badgerdog." Now, the badger is an animal that, general'' speaking, needs neither game laws nor sympathy, because he Is able to take care of himself and fight bis own battles. Naturalists place him as u link between the bear family and I lie weasels. He has about all the slreiiuoiis characteristics of both, with some of his own iu addition.

A house without sunlight Is unhealthy and unsafe for human occupancy and it is necessary not only to have some sunlight, but to have as much of It as possible. It Is, of course, not feasible to admit Ihe direct rays of Ihe sun to every room of a house; the typical plan of all houses Is square or rectangular, und al 'east one side of the house Is entirely beyond the reai li of the sun. The oilier three sides, however, can receive more oi lews direct sunlight mid the problem of the plan Is thus reduced to arranging the vat Ions rooms so that tbe amount of sunlight is adjusted to their uses, ami it must be sunlight, for men- light Itself is not sufficient; ihe nr. s of the sun have cutatlve and cleansing proper ties that nothing else lias. HOOKS HAD The following Incident, illustrating the rough humor of the late "I. tike" Poland, linn a congressman Ifo.ii Ver mont, was related to me a iniiubi r ef years ago by our family physician, says a writer In an eastern publica tion. I bad been ill ii number of days with tonsliitis. and bad reached die rest less Stage of convalescence, when Ihe doctor called one punning and found nn- ropped aualnst the pillows and deeply interested in a paper covered volume of the yellow variety. My mother attempted to iipologi.e for the cheap character of my literature, but was Inti rrupted by the doctor, who laughingly exclaimed: "Oh, let him end anything he wants to, it' it wiil only keep him quiet." "And. do you know," he continued.

The others grouped beside and behind him, and waited for him to give out such Information as his coign of vantage might secure. Among the crowd was one young man who dldn t particularly enre whether any paper got anything or not. In fact, he would far rather have scored a blank for this particular ease, and thus have gained some other and more pleasing assignment from his city editor. This young man cogitat ed for one moment, and then, quick op some huge cat, gove the kneeling spy at the door a tremendous shove. The kneeling victim shot straight through the suddenly opening doors, landing on hands and knees far out In the auditorium. Another reporter, who hud been leaning against the doors, fell headlong attains! him, bringing up squarely upon his stom ach. Two others, nnahlc to regain their balance, sat down heavily In the diMirwny. The remainder of the tribe. scrambling madly, fled out Into the street, leaving tbe 'alien ones to re celve the wrath of the assembled lulu Istcrs. It might he just us well to draw the veil of silence and of charity over the subsequent proceedings. Chicago Journal. is the matter. Molly? Can I do any thing for you?" was the sympathetic query. With many sobs came the re ply: "My mamma has gone to hea ven." "Perhaps she hasn't." was the conifor:lr.g comment, which abruptly stopped the sobs and left the vlciiui iu a maze of thought. Another experience revealed to our heio a cottage with a sunny gardel all abloom and a piazza dominated by an elderly maiden of forbidding as pect. "May I have a few of those lovely Mowers?" "No. no. little boy." came the churlish reply. "They are put theie to look at. not to touch. " "Thai's why you are put there. I sup pose." said the quick and Impendent youth, as lie scampered down the street. "My child, my child, what dirty hands!" said the mother one day as he came In with hands that suggested a four paws' menagerie. "Go and wash them at once." "Why. tea." was the aggrieved response, "I have washed them already. You must be getting color blind." GOOD FIGHTEK. badger is a tremendous burrower. ond the Jolly dachshund of the Jokes has been trained for centuries iu Germany to go Into his burrows' liYe a ferret after rats and drive the badger out or tight him. In some German ami Aus Irian cities there were formerly badger-baiting tourneys in which crack dachshunds entered a pit with nn able bodied badger and fought for points. It js said that such contests are still liebl In Vienna. 1'or spirit, endurance and agility the dachshund has no peer in tills work, and a bulldog pilled against a badger would probably Hud himself cutting a poor figure. So, to make the Jokes about the dachshund If you will, but give him credit for his prowess, and lor that gentleness, characteristic also of I lie best bulldogs, that makes either an nf feet innate companion to man and a loyal playmate to children.
