WAITING FOR HIS FILMS Paris Couturier to show lin Models by Means of Cinematograph. Paul Poiret, one of the great drees makers of the world, and his wife, who ac companies him on hs first visit to this country, went eiaht seeing yesterday from the Plaza. On their return M. Poiret an nounced that they had found much to stir the Imagination. For his first day In New York the cou turier had unstable weather, but he aays he likes New York under changing skies and expects to "admire endlessly" on a day of sunshine. "So superb a city," he murmured, and Mme. Poiret added a smiling and em phatic. "Outl" The artist of gowns, who arrived on Saturday on La Provence, waa asked about hi" stay here and the lectures he will give. "1 shall he in New York shout three weeks twenty days, unless 1 alter my plans." he replied. "The date of my first lecture 1 am not yet able to fix. First I must get my cinematograph films through the customs. "The customs! Had It not been for the customs duties I would have brought mannequins young women models with me to Illustrate my talks As it Is. the films are wonderful color pictures and will answer nearly as well perhaps better. "My lectures in New York will he given In the large ballroom of the Plasa and afterward there will he aupper. The guests will come by Invitation. 1 am hoping that these aflrrnoons will be very successful." New Yorkers who remember the color conferences given here last year hy Andre de Pouquleres are confident M. Poiret will have similar success. These Invitation afternoon Illustrated talks by M. Poiret are expected to be Important social events of the early season. M. Poiret Is uncertain yet if hla visit here, or rather his lectures, will be con fined to New York. He may go to Chicago and to Boston There will be efforts to persuade him to run down to Philadelphia for a day. All these things are on Ihe knees of the gods or the goddesses for whom the noted dressmaker evolves attire. The couturier is about & feet 7 Inches in height, bearded, and except for a slightly foreign air might pass for an American business man. and not the tired business man either. There Is nothing of the dandy about him. He talks simply and has a refreshing and reposeful manner. He wears generally a gray suit, sack coat and a soft felt hat, either brown, or gray. Praises American Woman's Taste. "With the American woman I am al ready well acquainted." he says. "She has probably the best figure In the world. She can wear anything, and wear it well. It Is a delight to build a costume for her because of her natural pose, her splendid equilibrium and her excellent physical de velopment. She desires only the hent, the most novel gowns She never makes her self rldli uloua : at least not In attire. "The newest thing In fashions? Either something Husalsn or Italian. It amounts to the sumo thing. The Oriental flavor must be there at present. Turk ish trousers are not for street wear no.

The tall your Woolworth spire I It Is like the gilded pinnacle of a groat world altar." I M. Poiret was asked how he came to ; design lampshade gowns. He explained that when asked to ninke the OOStUmea for the play "Le Minaret " at the lienais sanoa Theatre, Paris, he turned to old Persian engravings and there got the, idea from the smoothly swelling towers of the Kast. The new pattern became a rags In a day. Many of the pictures that M Poiret will show are of minaret gowns. ' They are chiefly with a tight underskirt underskirt , and draped 'versklrt. I arched hy a concealed hoop a to the knee by a transparent ov From his study of the ancient encrav tngs of Persia M. Poiret evolved a rule I for costuming. It Is: Always seek a1 greater simplicity and to achieve a new SSh Ion turn to the primitive. The Pari Stan roaslders himself primarily an ar- I tlst. "Women come to me, not to a dress maker, hut to a distinguished painter for ' their portraits. " hi said nuletlv. "I am not responsible for many undignified ! things spread abroad in my name Hy I going to the primitive i rind fresh In spiration snd I do not pervert existing' styles as do some detugnera. Artist Most Mod? Antlqaes. j "Going hack to earlier, simpler thing! insures a snna ounagtlon roi designs. In earlier gown there Is always utility with art. The artist who does not refresh him self from the past soon turns out un sightly fripperies without any character whatever " He conceded that personality enters Into the highe.it art of drees There must be personality In the builder and In the wearer. "Women are wronn In following one style." he remarked. "They are not made alike, they do not look alike. To dress exactly after one idea is deadening to beauty. "The Oriental In modem dresn will con tinue for some time to coma. There Is no truth In this talk tliat Venetlsn ideas are already gaming in Our mftdslllng l still under Oriental Influence and the styles of Venice were but derivatives of the kast. "I am proud of the art that I have e tabllehed In my Martina house and Its decoration. I do not lecture my pupils nor bind them with rules. They are per mitted to develop their own ideas snd the results are eminently worth while." In the Manlnc house decoration M. Poiret has used simply black and white with wonderful art. He names this style after his little daughter. Marline. Paul Poiret Is the revolutionist In Parla fashions. He Is not only one of the great designers but he ends one style and promulgates another to a degree greater than any of his rivals. A fashion la not dons while Poiret holds to It ; a I fashion Is dead when he turns to kome I thing elae. Besides the gowns of "Le Minaret," he has costumed a ballet In lnndon, "The Flowers of Allah." at the Alhambra. and recently finished the deulgns for enstumss In a new play soon to appear in London, "Nebuchsdneixar." It Is possible that he will costume a Broadway play.- He ex presses himself as not unwilling to do so should a suitable subject be offered.

Liquid Gas Produced st Tern persturc of 42 Dpstccr Fsh renheit Below Zero. Cmicaoo, Sept. Jt Of all the modern utilities refrigeration Is the greatest, lta uses are so varied as to Include not only the preservstlon of many foodstuffs, but refrigeration Is used In the manufacture if many of the necessities of life. Health ind happiness depend on It. Refrigera tion has eome to play such an Important part In the business world that capital amounting to more than $l,no,non,00i Is "nveeted In Industries depending upon sub-freeslng temperatures And the In dustry Is In Its Infancy. This In brief sums up tho conclusions of delegates from nil parts of the world to the International Congress of Re frigeration, which will gome to a close next Wednesday. The sessions began last Wednesday. One of the greatest discoveries of science displayed at the exhibit Is that of Dr. Kamerllngh Onnep. who has been making researches Into the uses of lique fied gas It Is announced that he has produced a temperature of Uii de grees Fahrenheit below r.ero, within 2 degrees of absolute xero, or the point of absolutely no temperature With a liquid gas of- that temperature, It is declared, the composition of atoms may he de termined, and metals lose their electrical reststanoe, eo that minute wires could carry any distance all of tho electrical power generated hy Niagara Falls. Largest Refrigerator on View. Another one of the exhibits at Pexter Park pavilion Is a refrigerator said to be the largest In the world. The great Icebox contains twenty-eight rooms. In which Is exhibited practically every food produce subjected to refrigeration. This exhibit Includes samples nf butter made from pure cream, and from cream with a slight amount of Iron and copper In them to ahow the deleterious effects of exposing cream to copper or rusty Iron containers. "This exhibit." said Prof. E. Lam son Scrlbnrr of Washington, who Is In cnarge, "Is In reality a health teach ing lesson It Is the Intention of the Government to show by this exhibition that cold storage Is a vital factor In the food supply of the nation, and that cold storage foods are Just as healthy. If not healthier, than those not subjected to refrigeration " The delegates attending the sessions of the congress represent every civilised na tion In the world Subdivision of the various sections Includes: Liquid . gases and units, refrigerating machinery and Insulating material, application of re frigeration to foods, industrial refrigera tion, railroad and steamship refrigera tion and legislation. New I'ses of Refrlgteratlon. Many uses of refrigeration little known to the public were explained by S. 8 Van der Vaart of Chicago, who spoke on the enormous growth of the refrigeration In dustry in America 11" gave a survey of the development of the industry and pic tured Its magnitude at th.- present lime. "In regard to the opening of new fields for the use of refrigerating machinery,1' he said, "we need hut to point out such Interesting discoveries us that of the use of refrigerating machinery In the laundry to cool the starched collars hihI cuffs after leaving the mangle and before they are passed through the ghaper. It was found that linens not only preserved their shape much better in winter than In summer hut are less liable to income frayed at the deges . in short would stand more washings In winter than In sum mer. What was more natural than to create an artificial winter during that part of tho laundry Operation Which proved to he most trying to the goods after the washing period. When put to the test of actual service practice veri fied theory, collars ana cutrs laundered with the aid of the refrigerating ma chine proved to be more comfortable for the wearer, presented smoother sur face, did not crack or fray and lasted longer than those laundered In the usual way." Another Instance of new use for re frigerating machlner) is found m tin mining and metallurgical Industries, tin speaker said. He continued "Refrigeration Is found to be advan tageousiy applied in the preservation oi seeds, such as apple and other frull .-certs IncludltiK also seed potatoes and grain. These fruit seeds are frozen and held at freexinn temperature, seed potatoes and grain at temperatures jusl above tin freealng point of water. fl.ftiMi lee Plains In I . I, The curing or preventing of tropical diseases and the relieving und in some esses curing of hay fever are among iht uses for refrigeration just now being de veloped." Mr. Van der Vaart in reviewing the growth of the refrigerating Industr) said that tiiere are alioul 1,600 It's manufac turing plants In the United States equipped with machinery capable of producing be tween 18.0iiii.0ii0 and 10,000,000 tons of Ice annually. Capital Invested in the Ice making Industry glone he estimated to be not less than 11(0,000.000, Meanwhile over In another section O s Hayward of Bolton Was ! Hoik his au dience that melted ice has been discovered to be the Ideal drliiklnt: water "The water from natural Ice that lias melted." he said, "lias hei n mlslaki n for distilled water by chemists It Is the water which will soon be universally used as drinking water. Nine pounds of ice give a gallon of water, which i-. k pt cool without Hiiy i xtra ice Taking tie si of cooling Into oonslderatloni it is cheaper than the so-called bottled waters from Iht springs."
