;^g^y^wi^^fir^ CLOTH GOWN' OF CASTOR. •iYlmmed with fancy braid outlined In black ORIENTAL COLOR SCHEMES. FCRJCISHTXGS FOR HOMES TO BK BRILL IANT IN* EFFECT THIS WINTER. Mosaic effects in drapery nets are one of trm latest evidences of the season's fad for color, espe cially in lace curtains and hangings. Owing to this row fancy the most fascinating fabrics are dis played on every side to entice the purchaser. In g(i BMSSjca, ori.-ntal combinations are most popu lar, green, yellow, blue and red stripes being crossed by interwoven threads of blax-k. Closely ri\ ailing these, but in widely contrasting style of beauty, are the lovely "shadow silks," which are teen at their beet with the light from the window shining through their noft folds. Flower patterns of poppies, rosee or water lilies, the laft with a delightful underwater effect, are chosen in thie material most frequently. Other lace curtains have -pretty patterns of con ventionalised flowrrs in three colors, reds, blues and greens forming the prominent shades. Since Arabian and Renaissance still continue to be favorite laces, some clever dealers, to introduce the popular touch of color, offer to cell with these hangings a ribbon insertion of the tint devised for the room. Even the Bimpler and less expensive grades of lace may render a window thoroughly artistic If daintily draped, and in securing such results the cord and tassel plays an important part. There ls an unlimited number of possible arrangements in draping. If the two curtains at the window, in stead of merely meeting at the middle of the rod upon which they are hung, are made to lap over each other considerably, they may be caught back at a point about one-third of tne distance from the tap by cords, which are then tied at the ex treme end of the rod on either side. Tassels orna ment the lon* ends ot the cords, and are allowed to fall loosely. The curtains may again be gath ered in. lower down, with a French knot. This ar rangement is prettiest with a soft, filmy curtain. Cords may also be used effectively to drape back an* of a pair of curtains midway up trnj -window, and the other at a point near the top. Portieres of satin, covered with rich hand em broidery in gold and colored silks, are among the most attractive novelties In decorative fabrics. These are imported from the Orient, and the de tails of the designs are similar to those seen in a Turkish mosque. Other newly imported Eastern fabrics are elaborately worked in figures of pea cocks, elephants and birds of bright plumage. Buch patterns are peculiar to India, and come in both cotton and silk. They make most desirable draperies In Oriental corners, smoking rooms or dens Rope portieres and edgings continue in fashion, and are appearing in new and attractive shades. Imaplßg pace with the general fondne.ss for color. ¦fcSM edgings are often used on reversible our taJnf, being made in two-sided colors like the cur tains which they are to match. Th* color scheme of the hangings of a room fhould naturally be only a continuation of that used for wall decoration, and the wall hangings of the reason are correspondingly bright and varied. lathe showroom of a well known establishment is a model corner reproduced from an old English mansion. The wainscoting here is over eight feet high. Th« wall space above is covered with an me ::ve tapestry. Another model in the same house has its high wainscoting so cut as to frame. the wall into panels, which are covered with beau tiful cream colored and blue fiavoniere velours. Even in quaint pieces of hall furniture, where •ombre tints have heretofore prevailed, the same aote of color is struck. Panels treated with pyrog zaphy have also applications of white, blues or Mas. and picturesque scenes are reproduced to rep resent hunting and couching parties. Seats and chair backs also of leather, illuminated in imita tion of old monkish parchments, are among the ¦fens of the times, but only to ne. possessed by those who can afford to indulge in expensive fur ¦tai*.

Certain aspects of the season's fashions are so marked as tn ho unmistakable. First, every woman who can wear a forty-flve-inch cloak wlth o\n looking "like a guy"— and many who cannot— will do so. Second, castor has regained the over whelming popularity of two years ago, and will be worn for gowns, coats and hats until people are weary of it. Third, costumes for the street will clear tne ground completely, almost without exception, -while those for home and evening wear •will have longer trains than ever. Apart from these general outlines, the fact re mains that there has never bern a time in the history of fashion when there was such a latitude allowed the individual taste and style. There is no hard and fast rule for anything in the realm of costume. Every woman is expected to select the mode, color and fabric best suited to her, and -when she has done that she is considered to have done her -whole duty to society In the matter of dress. There are few new names in the list- of fabrics to be used, but the fabrics themselves have many points of novelty. Canvas, for instance, now comes in a fineness of weave that makes it practically a new material. Homespun differs widely from the article, heretofore known by that name, being a mixture of a variety of threads— tine, coarse, black, ¦white and colored— that give a. decided novelty of I effect. It will be used tor long walking coats and tailored costumes, and will be trimmed with stitched or corded satin or plain velvet bands. The foundation colors most liked, will be gray, ditrk red and browns. Many of the fashionable materials have long white hairs scattered Irregularly over the surface. In the, manner that formerly was characteristic of camel's hair. Cheviots, unfinished worsteds, vicunas. Venetians and broadcloths are to divide popularity among them for tailored gowns, while materials of ex tremely light weight will be used for dressy cos tumes. Some of the costumes now being shown by the leading shops are exceedingly delicate and artistic. A black satin crepe de chine has the upper part of the skirt tucked tinely, and the bodice is In pinch tucks, on which are tiny jot beads about an inch apart. The front of white coin spotted lace is drawn Into a belted blouse effect, and has a clever touch in the introduction of narrow velvet ribbon of pale violet shade applied In small geo metrical motifs down the middle, and two rosettes at the side of the stock collar. The sleeves are slightly bell shaped to the elbow, and are finished hy puff sleeves of lace drawn into a cuff, with deep lace edge falling well over the hand. A fine blue crPpe de chine has the skirt tucked in vertical groups of three to the. Bounce, which I Is an accordion pleating of blue chiffon, and is j headed by silver spangled white OHiny insertion. i The bodice is decollete, edged with the lace, and the elbow sleeve is almost tight. A corsage knot and sash of black velvet ribbon, two inches wide. add a telling accent. Many of the evening gowns have sleeves reaching half way to the elbow; sometimes they are tightly lifted and sometimes have almost a puff effer-t. Most of the handsomer tailored >-" ; w:..s retain th*> bolero in some modification. A favorite s-tyle has straps across the full front, ending at each ride in a tiny buckle. Another Is whole ;i'i<.ss the bust and back, fastening invisibly un<!er the arm. A lovely costume of dark blue, cloth has a belted blouse opening over a full front of white satin, with yoke of open hemstitching. The blouse i-i edged with a band of pale blue cloth embroidered with black. The skirt is perfectly plain and flares conspicuously. Most of the new hats are larger than ever. The long coat seem? to demand the Gainsborough and kindred styles, and the demand is fully sup plied. Even toques and turbanr. are extended an': amplified to an astonishing size. The result la eminently satisfactory, however, as the new models are extremely beautiful. A large draped toque oT tucked petunia velvet achieves a highly artistic ensemble by having for decoration two long ostrich plumes of exactly th«» same rich tint, encircling rhe soft brim. In opposite directions from their meeting point at the side. One lies well on the brim and the other rests somewhat on the crown, and the effect ls most graceful. A wonderful creation 1* of black and white chif fon folds alternating with a mixed braid of black Kr.d white chenlll.. with black dotted white breast ingeniously axraneed on the wide, upturned brim. Or.c If not absnlutHy restricted to the large hat, however, hs there are occasionally almost diminu tive toques and round hats to suit small faces. One sur-h wa." of black ro^e petals with brim turned back from the face. Over this was draped a narrow Renaissance scarf knotted In*- at the t-ide. A half w-reath of Email pink roses added a pretty color note. In answer to th<» question "Who is the greatest woman In all history?" put to two hundred Macon County (Mo.) teachers. Miss Nannie Viekroy. of Macon. made a unique answer, which received the prize for originality. She passed over Queen Vic toria, Frances Willard, Helen Gould and other women whose names were the most popular, and declared: 'The wife of the Missouri farmer of moderate means who does her own cooking wash- Ing and Ironing, brings up a large family of girls and boys to be useful members of society, and finds time for her own intellectual and moral improve ment is 'the greatest woman in all history.' " Power to make arrests has recently been gTanted to Mm. C A. Severance, of St. Paul, &Dnn. Mrs. Severance has long been a prominent •worker In the Humane Society of her city, and has regretted her disability to secure the punish ment In many caSJSS, of persons who treated their animals -with cruelty. She lias now obtained from the r'hief of Police a silver star bearing the in scription, "Special Humane Officer. St. Paul." and she may make arrests whenever necessary She says that she will call on passers-by for "help If resistance is made to her arrests. Mrs Severance will not patrol the streets, but will make use of her power merely when instances of violation of humane laws come before her notice Probably one of the most remarkable of unique and costly dresses is that given to a woman by an Indian ruler. It ls covered with thousands of the wing cases of an Indian beetle, which makes the dross Fhine with bewildering Iridescent light This beautiful product of the hi-etle is used also by native women as a decoration for their dresses The moat costly element of women's dress, as a rule, Is lace, particularly old lace, which Is Eometimes of almost priceless value. A lace hand kerchief of the Queen Tjowager of Italy is said to be three hundred years old and valued at $10,000. Among women of fashion, however ex travagance In all departments of dress is conceded by leading modistes to be on the increase, and even the most ordinary of street, gowns Is only made at a high figure. Perhaps the acme of thU extravagance was reached by the woman, who as the report goes, paid a single cost timer $200 000 for her gowns. The portable schoolhouses now In use in Boston are proving a great success In helping the school board out of present difficulties caused by lack of room for scholars. These contrivances may be set down in school yards or other available places like the voting booth? familiar on Election Day. Since they are" easily carried from one place to another, they are of great advantage 'as the centres of school population shift from time to tune Forty-three of these were opened last week and they were placed so near to the regular school houses, which have usually ground space In the yard, that the children are able to enlov all th.- privileges of a fully equipped school. *By th s means the school board in Boston feels confident that It can accommodate the school population as soon as the new buildings, now under wav shall >«¦ < nmplpfed. The employment of Chinese girls as telephone operators Is an innovation probably soon to be come an established fact in San Francisco. The large number of Chinese subscribers in that city has long made It necessary to have a central stHtlon where ii:.- operators speak the Chinese language. Men have held these positions hereto fore, but the company finds that girls will answer its purpose better. Intelligent girls will 1..- pro eared from the missions, and a natron will be engaged to see that they are properly protected. Six operators will be needed for the < in--. system. An interesting feature of their duties will be the making of tea, mi.-.- Chinese etiquette re quires that customers should 1.. entertained while waiting for the public telephone. Tea and tobai-ro are both furnished at the company's expense.
