' A number of the new coats- show collars different
from the sioles that have been worn so long. The
chances ere that there will be fewer stoles In the
autumn. Now a lot of straight scarfs made of
feather, mousseline and, above all. of finely shirred
fj>olnt d'esprlt are worn, but newer editions of these
•jrarfs are shaped In the back or have tabs and
•rimming there to take away from the plain stole

jplfltline shawl fashion.
A novel idea, is to trim heavy linen gowns with
tfoultrfl. A pown Just designed Is of heavy white
illaen trimmed with a lot of yellow guipure and
«vhlte and black spotted foulard.* Some of the heavy
3inen coats that are so fashionable for the race's
tWs year are trimmed with bands of foulard. While

«nore than ever fashionable as a trimming.
I There is a preat deal of Russian embroidery

jjvlta touches of black done on heavy linen. Ad
justable collars of this, with often an attached
■rent piece, are ?mart with wash blouses. A paletot
icoat of the fashionable heavy silk linen lust de

Miss r Applehee Say* the "American
Girl Is Playing a Good Game.
Miss Apple**"*, a Bandy haired young English
woman, rather short and with a wholesome Eng
llph completion. to. by reason of h»r unbounded en
thusiasm for the lerame of hockey, a most Interesting:
personality. She has spent F<*v»ral months in this
country. Journeying from college to college and to
many "preparatory school?, and has made probably
no le?s than one hundred visits on behalf of her
favorite game. Her tireless zeal makes one think
of the efforts of a. religious missionary.
At the schools and colleges which Miss Applet**
visited she addressed mass meetings of students in
the gymnasiums or in the college halls or out on
Che athletic field, telling them the history of the
game, explaining the method of playing it, descant
ing on its merits and relating many anecdotes of
her own experience, for the students, like the
Athenians of old, are always ready for some new
"How do you think hockey is taking hold of the
American gir!?' this hockey missionary was asked.
"Magnificently," she replied. She was wearing her
English hockey suit, much like an ordinary gym
nasium suit, with a short corduroy skirt, and was
sorting over the long, colored scarfs which the
players wear to distinguish one position from, an
other. "I felt sure it would be so when I came.
The American girl is playing a good game. too. We
shall have to look after our laurels, even though
we have such a start of her. It won't be long at
this rate until we are having International games.
"Hockey might be called a combination of golf,
basketball and football. You see." she went on,
pointing to a picture of a hockey team on her
desk, "it is played by twenty-two players, divided
into two teams. Each player has a hockey stick
and the energy of the game is concentrated on a
cricketball, painted red. The hockey field," she
continued, drawing a diagram, "is an oblong. 100
by 60 yards, with goalposts at each end. Each
side chooses a goal, and every stroke it makes is
to send the ball through the posts and score two
points. That's the game in a nutshell.
"As the two teams are working at cross purposes,
not only do the players have to send the ball
through their own goal, but they must keep it
away from their or.ponents". So the good team
keeps its eye on the. ball every second. Each stroke
should keep the ball cut of the enemy's hands and
should advance It toward the coal. Then, too, the
players should work together— good team work.
That's one secret of the game," she nodded. "I've
known more titan one team beaten by its inferior
because the players would make individually brill
iant plays instead of working as a whole. You
see. a team is made up of five forwards, three half
backs two fullbacks, and a goalkeeper. The ball is
bullied off here on the centre line much as a
basketball in put In play. The forwards of the
• ; -ing t«SM face <;ich other and the goal for
which thoy are working. The hall is placed on th»
line— here" indicating her diagram, between the
middle forwards. There they hit each other's
sticks three limes and make a dash for the ball. A
ball to pet from the centre line to the goal has to
pass the enemy's halfbacks, fullbacks and fcOtM
"You sen the radical differ. between hockey
and basketball is that in basketball a player of
one team is stationed next to a player of the ' Other,
and they fight it out on the spot, but In hockey
each team i.« stationed in separfit* hnl™» " f . £*
field, po the minute a ball goe« toward tho goal the
forwards and halfbacks run into the enemy « half
of the field to urge the bull on to the gonl against
th* efforts of th? enemy. The fullbacks and goal
keeper never leave their positions, for if the enemy
should send the ball back, as it often does, there
w<*ild be no one left to keep up the fray.
"So the game consists of whacking the ball nftcK
and forth until it goes through th» goal, and then
you start agalin"" i .' : ,
* "Just so." she assented. "That is kept up for
two halves of thirty minutes each with a rest be
tween, and the team with the highest score beats.
The golf comes in in the management of the
stick. ■ , .
"Strenuous* Of course It's strenuous. Its the
most strenuous game 1 know. That's why I play it.
That's why 1 have spent six months in your coun
try trying to teach it to the American girl.
"Still, one's life Isn't in any more peril than in
any other good. hard, roui?h and tumble game. No
player, under the heaviest penalty. Is allowed to
raise a stick above her shoulders, so there is little
danger of black eyes or broken noses and collar
bones. She does get black and blue arms and legs,
and, of course, she sprains her ankle and her wrist
occasionally, and if the field is a bit wet she has to
be careful not to fall, but she likes it all the better
for these mishaps. It adds excitement. A college
man is terribly disappointed if he doesn't have the
pleasure of going about on crutches once in a
while. He likes to be a hero. Just so with a girl.
She treasures her bruises: the more she gets the
better she likes the same. As a matter of fact,
however, I have never known of any really serious
accidents in hockey. As far as actual danger goes,
it seems to me a much safer pastime, than horse
back riding. ■-■ '■''■''. '.■■'
"For the strenuous life which the American col
lege girl leads hockey is lust the iintidote. Your
American public Is so terribly concerned about
whether a girl ought, to wo to college and study
Greek or stay at home and learn to cook. 1 notice
that the men are particularly concerned, and write
tremendously learned articles on the question. It s
the same in my country, and they amuse me im
mensely. As If a girl with enough brains to pass a
college entrance examination couldn't in three
months learn to run a house! The trouble with
college is that the students live at a breakneck
speed, and use up all their nervous energy in their
classes and their social life, until they are nothing
but nervous wrecks. They have sot to have some
thing to use their muscles as hard as they use
brains and nerves or the college* will turn Into
sanatoriums. It is the same with American women
the country over. They are invalids simply be
cause they" dash madly into the servant problem
and the social problem and mothers* meetings and
philanthropies and missionary societies and civic
reforms, until there is nothing left of them but a
bundle of fretful, useless nerves."
Women 'Artists and Models Com
pose Organization.
At No. 11 East Flfty-nlnth-st. there is ■ woman's
club -which neither attempts a course of intellectual
gymnastics nor dabbles in social work, like so
many of the women's clubs of the day, yet per
forms its own work in a successful and intelligent
The Art Workers' Club for Women, whose work
«- little known outside of the artist colony, was
started about six years ago by a few women
painters and sculptors for the purpose of mutual
interest and support among women artists and
models. It alms to dignify the profession of posing,
to assist artists in obtaining suitable models and to
find other employment for those unsuited for pos
ing, or who show especial talent in other direc
tions, and to Rive aid in cas<>s of need.
The Art Workers' Club is sometimes spoken of as
the Mod-Is' Club. That is a mistake. It is not a
club for models exclusively, any more than it Is
for Hrti?ts exclusively. It is for both in common.
Tn the club itself no distinctions are drawn be
tween the two. although the 145 mod"!? who are
members profit by the club in a somewhat different
manner from the 210 artists who are member?.
For instance, one of the cbi*f departments ie an
employment bureau for women model*. Th's has
proved an advantage to the models because it
helps them to obtain engagement?. Posing is a
lucrative occupation for a. girl who has the requi-
site, equipment for It. Models often make $30 a
•week, and as the average pay for a model is $1 so
a mornln*. afternoon or evening this would not be
Last month a bureau of Information for -women
artists and art workers of all kinds was opened.
This bureau is prepared to furnish women artist?,
teachers and lecturers in all branches of art. and
to give information about summer classes, etc. It
also helps the members to rent and sublet studios,
etc. The bureau is the outcome of constant de
mands, such as, "Do you know any one who can
carve leather?" or "Who ia there I can get to
mend my Russian brass candlestick?" or "I should
like to join a sketch class this summer if I knew
how to do It" Among- the subscribers to this bu
reau are George Gray Barnard. H. K. Bush-Brown,
Karl Bitter. Bryson Burroughs, Thomas Shields
Clark, B. West Cllnedinat. Alfred G. Collins, Ken
neth Frazier, C. D. Gibson. Eastman Johnson, Sar
geant Kendall. Edward Sperry. M. C. Tonetti. C.
Y. Turner. J. Q. A. Ward, Alden Weir. Irving R.
Wiles, the Buffalo Art School, the Art Students*
League of New-York, the New-York Art School
and many others.
One important part of the work Is the renting of
costumes. The trunks, boxes and wardrobes in the
office are all filled with costumes. These are
greatly used by Illustrators, who are all the time
having to depict special periods, and need special
costumes for them. At the costumer'a such things
are very' expensive. The costumes rent at from
50 cents to $1 a week, or at from 10 to 20 cents a
day. Costumes can be used only by models of the
club for professional posing, and any one who uses
a costume under other conditions forfeits the
privilege of renting one for the future. Models
have cards issued to them, similar to the cards Is
sued by public libraries to their subscribers, and
these cards must be presented In order to borrow,
return or renew a costume. Costumes can be re
tained only two weeks at the longest, at the end
of which time they must be returned for inspec
tion. One that Is two weeks overdue is sent for,
like a public library book, at the expense of the
; renter, who forfeits the right to use other cos
| tumes till all outstanding charges are paid.
A class In applied design helps along the crafts
! idea and assists in establishing the position of the
I club as a body of individual workers. Thera are
: also classes in French and In sewing. A light
| luncheon Is served at a nominal charge from 12:30
| to 2 o'clock, and afternoon tea is served every day
I free of charge. Every month an entertainment Is
j given, and there are lectures and musicals at
i intervals.
Not one of the least Important objects of the
club has been to dignify the work of the profes
sional model. Since the club was started gentle
women have taken up posing. One model was a
Smith College girl.
"/r in astonishing how many people think they
ran pose." said a woman artist member. "Any
mod looking woman cannot be a model. Besides
n»r face or figure, a model, to be a great success,
must possess artistic temperament. What many of
the illustrators of to-day want In the model is th«
chic, up to date American pfrl. Of course, classic
features and classic Usurps are always in demand,
but th» illustrator has his own favorite type or
type*, just as th« painter or sculptor has. The
patntfT insists on color and lines and proportion in
hi« model : th» sculptor does not demand color, lines
and proportions «.r<> necessary to him. As a rule
the professional life of the model is short. A great
many take tip th* profession deliberately, and re
main In it until they are very old. Generally, how
ever, when a woman's color and outlines change.
ehe goes into something else. A great many of the
model* are on the stage. "
E^erv year the Art Workers have a Christmas
sale. The club, being composed of artists and
artistic people, the pincushions, centrepieces and
other chefs dceuvres of the ordinary bazaar or fair
are replaced by carved wood, carved leather
beaten brasses, sketches and th" output of the
various studios. Last year $1,200 was netted. This

women rarely enclose a stamped envelope for a re

a running commentary of criticism, one of them
chanced upon a periodical addressed to "Mrs.

White there are no new fabrics in summer dra
peries, there is no end of variety In design and at
tractiveness in colors. Cretonnes are i:sed to a
iavish extent, and are/ gay and "summery" in their
floral richness or artistic tapestry effects. They
are used for curtains, finished with lace borders,
all manner of draperies, cushions, pillows and for
upholstering rattan and willow furniture. And
though one may pay $1 50 a yard for a lovely
piece of cretonne, her neighbor, in drawing room
and veranda, may make ns brave a showing at .w

coloring being so excellent.
Moorish prints and Turkish curtains, draperies

broken checks for window draperies and a solid
green (a darker shade) for portieres.
Nothing excels in daintiness and cool effect the
lovely Japanese cotton crepes that come in all
colors and can be had at 35 cents a yard, thirty

shade? with white, and Delft blue and white har
monize perfectly with th« artistic mattings and
the new cotton rugs done so exquisitely in the
same colors.
Of course, if or.-, desires more costly r.nd richer
furnishings there is a wide range of choice to be
