SO Be OF INTEREST TO THE HAREM SKIRT THE SENS A TION OF MONDA Y IN THE LOCAL SHOPS By DOROTHY On might easily fancy herself at Palm Beach or St. Augustine upon leading the elevator on the third floor of a big shop near Eleventh and F streets this week. Here winter is forgotten amidst the blooming of spring flowers and the warbling of birds, while the very latest fashions are exhibited to tempt those who are supposed to be observing Lent. Among the very newest ideas is the Paul Poiret model of cretonne, with an overdress of lace combined with hunter's green satin. Cluny and filet lace are both used in this gown, which is very unusual. The Monte Carlo gown, designed by Weeks, is of blue chiffon and black satin trimmed with gold lace and cord. A unique com bination is of royal purple chiffon over messalrne, embroidered in a de sign distinctly Arabian in character and color. A panel at the side of the back is edged with skunk fur and trimmed with buttons of gold beads set with coral skunk edges, as is the bottom of the gown. The linen dresses this year seem smarter and prettier than any of previous years. A very stunning eostnme is the one of oyster white linen, with a tunic em broidered in old blue and black, and edged with blue ball fringe. At the bottom a wide band of white filet net appears braided in blue. A new feature of this dress, which will be very popular for summer, is the sash and butterfly bow of blue messaline which gives the empire waist line. Sailor collars are much m evidence on gowns, blouses, and coats. One MORNING r HATE a story in three chapters CHAPTER I. Eleanor and Katherine had been chums from primary school days. All through grammar school and high school they had walked to and from school together, and had done their lessons to-day at Eleanor's homo, to-morrow at Katherine's. Two chums of the opposite sex had obligingly became enamored of the twain and had "beaued" them to most of the high school parties in coxy foursomes. Then Eleanor went to college and Katharine stayed at home, but If any one thought that would break up the friendship, he was much mis taken. The two girls corresponded as regularly as plighted lovers, all through the school year, and the first day of vacation found them linked arm in arm. and thus they remained all summer. Then Eleanor graduated and came home to live, and the following June Katherine and Eleanor crowned the Damon and Pythias act by an nouncing their engagements on the same day. The fiances, although not the two high school swains, were obliging enough to be very good friends, so the foursome continued through the engagement. Katherine was married in September, Eleanor in November. Kath erine and her husband boarded the first few months until Eleanor had returned from her honeymoon. Then, as neither of the grooms was over loaded with the world's goods, no one was much startled when the word went around that the four were going to housekeeping together in a much nicer house than either couple could have afforded alone. CHAPTER IL Tm not going to write this chapter. Ton see, I don't really know much about it. So I'm Just going to leave you to infer it. as I do, from what I know is apt to happen when any two families, however congenial. attempt to live to gether. CHAPTER III. The third chapter is simply that Eleanor and Katherine now live at opposite ends of the town and are barely "speech-friends." Do you think that any two families, however congenial, can live to gether and have as much peace and harmony in the home as if each hao an Impregnable castle of its own? I don't. The families may be closely linked by relationship they may con sist of father and mother and married daughter's family or of two mar ried sisters, or of a son and wife and his father and mother, and they may bo the most congenial and affectionate people in the world, but the moment you put two heads of a house in one house, you set a trouble germ to work. They may never be any open friction, but I don't believe there wiU ever be the complete happiness and home satisfaction and harmony around that hearth that there is about the, hearth where the housemates are all members of one family. I don't even believe it Is good policy for two related or very intimat. families to live in two apartments in the same house. Now. that may sound overstated, but it is the testimony of many, many people whose wisdom is not of theory, but of experience. Perhaps you think that all this Is overstated you who are con templating some similar move doubtless you think you can get along with people whom you love. All this may be true as a rule, you say, but yourTase is different, you and your friends are peculiarly congenial. Maybe so, maybe so but, please remember, my friends, "that's what they all say."

New Jersey Ave. and C St AVERY HOWARD. of the most charming models ts a frock for a young girl made of white marquisette and having a sailor collar of pink voile embroidered in dots and trimmed with valenciennes lace. White crochet buttons with pink cen ters, and a pink ' and white cord around' the waist, finish a very chic dress. The separate blouses are in expressibly1 lovely this season very striking are the marquisettes and French voiles, in the lingerie waists, which have embroidered motifs in gay Bulgarian colors. Some of the dainti est things imaginable are those of marquisette combined with pale colors and trimmed with cluny or Irish laces and band embroidery. Every thing to make up the smart woman's spring and summer outfit is shown here in a bewildering array of color. To appreciate these the woman who loves pretty clothes should visit the establishment now before the choicest styles have been ordered sent home by those who like novelties. A distinctive feature of this de partment is the fact that orders may be given here for any kind of suit one wants, the materials to be selected at one's pleasure, and individual fancies catered to, with satisfaction guaran teed. Dressy gowns in tne new materials for spring, with lingeries and evening toilettes, are displayed in the costume room, where heavy draperies will ex clude the light if one wishes to try the effect of evening shades by elec tric light. Exclusive models in gowns of the latter class are imported for this firm, so there need be ne fear CHIT - CHAT. to tell you to-day. : Uses for Flouncing. In the sales of odds and ends of em broidery that all women can profit by at this season is the opportunity for mak ing the remnants or long pieces of flounc ing play many parts. The use of the wide embroidery for cor set covers is well known. In other days ribbon formed straps over the shoulders. I but now a narrow strip of beading forms less conspicuous shoulder straps and just as beautiful. In this form an edging of fine lace around the top and the arm holes is a good finish for the corset cover. From this garment it is logical to pass to the petticoat. What is prettier, after all (and surely the durability of it is undeniable!, than the petticoat with the flounce of embroidered Swiss? It requires only a beading to attach it to the fitted upper portion. In this season the flounce must not be too full. The beading should not be used for bright-colored ribbon. White is the best. All finer embridery can be Incorporated with !ace and fine batiste or lawn to form blouses and lingerie gowns. When use! on bodices there are three ways of dis posing of flouncing. It can be used for the top of the blouse, and the extended yoke of his season's style comes in very well for this Idea. Half sleeves of the embroidery, with probably an Insertion of lace or finely tucked batiste, are easily made. The scalloped edge can be used for the lower line of the yoke. The second method Is the placing of flouncing on the lower half of a blouse, its scalloped edge up; a curved or straight line can be followed. The yoke in this instance can be batiste or lawn, tucked solid or in groups and made light and summery by Introductions of net, lace or Swiss insertion. In this case the sleeves should be made of the same ma terial as the yoke Last is the vertical disposition of the wide embroidery. It win be In most cases sufficiently wide enough to form the front of any blouse. With the scal loped edges facing the center, apply the strip over a narrow panel of tucked material or bf lace insertion. A collar of lace is the daintiest heading for a blouse of this kind. The backs you will make in the same' fashion, and the sleeves can be used with just the top or each embroidery on plain material A for dainty little aprons and lingerie hats, the suggestions are usually sufficient to tnsptre home dressmaker to profit able sewing. Largest Morning Circulation. WOMEN of seeing others like them. A stun ning gown of black satin, with over dress of net adorned with white beads, and showing a touch of coral Jn pip ings of satin, costs $37.50, a very reasonable price for such a dress. Other very charming things' are shown. In the fashionable black and white effects of this season, and In the other popular colors. Exquisite are some of the new tub gowns and the more delicate lingeries which com bine white marquisettes, voiles, and batistes with coral, old blue, and other colors. One might go on, like the brook, forever, with a description of the pretty things found here, but space and time forbid. Suffice it to say that one of the facts that im press one in the new shop is that prices are very conservative a fact that will be appreciated by the woman who loves pretty clothes, but whose purse is not plethoric. The "sensation of yesterday in shop dom was the appearance In a depart ment Aore in Seventh street, near F, of a live model, who wore the much talked of and much abused harem skirt. Although all the new styles In spring gowns and hats were ex hibited here, their glories were sub dued by the novelty in white serge, which fully illustrated the new style. 1'nlike the oth.T models which have been pictured, this one was of a rather modest character, and very stylish. The pantaloons were very full, but not baggy at the bottom, a panel back and front, which was loose, hid ing them almost completely except when the model stepped up high. "May I take your order, madame?" met with more response than one would imagine from all the hue and cry that has been raised about the bifurcated garment brought into notice first, by Paul Poiret. For $10 a skirt tf white or black serge or Panama may be ordered, while a complete suit with a jacket cut in the nobbiest style costs $25. To-day is the last day of the model's stay, so if you would sec her attired in the newest fr-f.ik of fashion, you had better hurrv. VERY ATTRACTIVE SPRING STYLES Feminine Interest in Open ing of Blue.stein Store. The oponin? yesterday of the new rUurstein stor, at the corner of V and Thirteenth streit.--, caused a flutter amone the shoppers, who we.ro out in full force early in the morning to set- what the spring styles were like. Here they found all the newest ideas in dress and millinery, and many imported novelties, which are not seen anywhere else in the city. The shop itself is a very attractive place decorated in white and rose color, and the figures on which the season's smart owns are exhibited are among the finest creations m the world of wax, beins so true to nature that one would he pardoned for mistaking them for creatures of flesh and blood. The principal interest centers, of course, in the suit department on the second floor, where some very smart models in tailored clothes are seen. The best of those are tlv garments made in man-tailored fayhen. with perfect fittins shoulders and sleeves that are set in like a man's. These, of course, are the features niost sousht in the tailored coat. but. alas, seldom found except in high-priced suits. Serges, worsteds, and fancy mixtures, most reasonably priced, are shown made in thi?- style. Very smart are the coat suits of satin, in white, black, or navy blue, which are cither quite plain or trimmed elaborately. The short coat, the Kton jacket, and the Russian blouse are all represented, so every kind of figure has a chance. White serges, basket cloths, and homespuns will be very popular this spring, some stunning models heiiig seen. A nobby suit is of natural pongee, with an Kton jacket, trimmed with Rulgarian embroidery, while a very stylLsh suit is one of navy blue ser-c, with sailor collar revers and cuffs of white moire, which may he detached when ready for the cleaners. Be Careful in Using Glycerin. Kew skins can stand glycerin, and it should never be used without diluting. Otherwise the skin will become dry and parched. FASHION HINT. 5309 JfOVBTL SHIRTWAIST. Even in a waist as plain as the one illus trated herewith there is a chance for or. namentation. At the neck, attached to the standing collar, there Is a small yoke, square in the back and of fancy shape in the front. The shoulders are trimmed wR2 a group of tucks and the closing of the waiat is at one side. In front. In the neck tucks extend from the shoulders to the waist in diagonal lines. Puff sleeves com plete the garment and these are finished wiin a deep rancy curt. Wash materials, such as Madras, mercer. lsed gingham and the like, and also sffk. aim, sxencn rrannei ana """y fabrics, will make up weil tn this style. The pattern, 5,306. is cut In sixes St to 44 Inches bust measure Medium size requires SK yards of 27 inch material and yard of 18 Inch sJlover. Th above pattern can be obtained by ending tan cents te toe office of this Jl! aBpKSaviww! jmiw w i HOUSEHOLD HINTS A particularly pretty parasol has dark blue stripes at the edge as border, and again around the ferrule, with a center band of darker blue and pink flowers. Among the useful fabrics that find first place in women's favor are the henri ettas and soft cashmeres that lend them selves to either a simple or an ornate style A set of clamps operated by a lever to draw them together and a notched bar to hold them has been Invented by a Pennsylvania man to facilitate the join ing of belt ends. Many houses are showing designs in Veads or in a beaded effect secured by French knots. These latter are very new and are worked In silk or heavy cotton and in contrasting colors. Skirts of new tailored costumes con tinue straight and close. Later it is prob able that wide silk bands will assume greater importance as an adornment on skirts as well as on coats. Straw Jack Tar hats are already in the shops for boys, intended probably for the little tourists going south. Some times the brims are different in color from the square crowns. Flat little pump bows of Irish lace against tiny wings of pleated hemstitched linen are among the small bits of neck wear, and small bows of black velvet or black satin still head jabots. Many blouses match the suit In color, and braid, crocheted buttons and the touch of black satin are the favored forms of trimming. They are generally made of crepe de chine or of satin, and have narrow crushed girdles attached. A peculiarity of the pearl fisheries of Ceylon is their irregularity. For six con secutive years prior to 1908 they were profitable, but since then every year has been a failure, and no more successful fishing is expected until 191i. Distinctly new and fetching among the fascinating fabrics for children's frocks ure the hand-embroidered' cotton mar iiuisettes that have an eyelet design. These have a white crown with the em broidery done In all the usual colors. Tailored coats continue to be cut on loose, straight lines, and are of length best fitted to the figure; generally they end just below the hips or half-length. A pleasing variety Is seen In the length of the small sleeves and the shape of collars and revers. To make thin curtains hang evenly when finished make the casing for the curtain rod first, insert the rod, and hang the material from the fixtures. Now draw down I he window shade as far as you wish the curtains to come when finished. With the bottom of the shade as a guide you may baste or very carefully pin the hem. and when It is finished the curtains will look straight. Try kerosene dusters or "dustlees dusters' when housecleaning. Dampen two cheesecloth dusters with the oil and shut them up in a tip pail with a cover on it for twenty-four hours: then they will be ready for use. T'se one for furniture, &c, the other for hardwood, linoleum and such things. They will take up dust without spreading it again, and will not leave streaks, like a freshly dampened cloth. When children's clothes need altering the work may be facilitated greatly by bringing ail the garments to one room and having the children try on the cloth ing at one time. In a family where there are several girls this will be found less Irksome for the children. Have a pttd of paper and a pencil ready, and, as each garment is tried on, write on a slip if the paper what is to be done; then pin the slip to the garment. Allow time to mark curtains when tak ink them down in the spring to be laun dered. When they are to be put up again there will he so little trouble in sorting them, for the different windows that you will be well rewarded. The best way to mark them is to write the names of the rooms on tape with indelible ink and sew the tapes to the right-hand upper corner of each curtain. If a room say, th living-room has two or more win dows, mark one pair of curtains I.. R No. 1, another pair L. R No. . &c. A rainy-day bag will make the time pass pleasantly for a little girl who has the bag given her to play with on wet days only, when she cannot play out doors. The !ag itself should be made of a pretty piece of cretonne covered, say. with Kate Ureenaway figures. It should have long double draw-strings, and inside there should be various little toys: a ball, small animals, a string of spools, some bright pictures, and various little odds and ends added from time to time without the child's knowledge. By using sponges in housecleaning It is possible to save much trouble and avoid that endless litter of dirty cloths which is so common. Buy two 10 cent sponges and use them in this way: Have the first one in a pail of water in which some good soap has been dissolved; have the second in a basin of clean water. T'se the first sponge for the dirty work and go over the same places with the second one. taking from the clean water. When buying the sponges choose close, solid ones, as they are easier to manage. A pretty awning for a kitchen window may be made this way: Open a large, strong barrel hoop and nail the ends on each side of the window casing, about six inches above the lower sash. Drive a row of nails in the top of the casing and lace strong cords or wire from the nails to the hoop. In well-prepared ground below the window, on each side, plant seeds of morning-glories, cypress vines, scarlet-runner beans, or any quick-growing vines. Train these vines up to the hoop by means oC cords and then over the network. There is no right way to wash blan kets, and it is just as easy to follow as the wrong way. Start by cutting up half a cake of good white soap and dissolving it in hot water. Pour this into enough cold water to cover the blankets, and add two ounces of powdered borax. Soak the blankets overnight In this solution. In the morning squeeze most of the water from them, and rinse them thoroughly In cold water in which a little borax has been dissolved. Rinse finally in bluing water, but do not wring or squeeze them this last time; simply hang out to drain and dry In the sunshine. Hang the blan kets by the side, and change to the other side when partly dry. Blankets washed this way will not shrink and will be light and fluffy. To wash pillows place on the stove a large clothes boiler and measure the w-ater as you fill It. For each five gal lons of water allow one bar of good laundry roap. Dissolve the soap, and when the water is tepid immerse a single pillowtick. feathers and an. If the tick ing is much soiled, or if the water Is hard, add household ammonia in the pro portion of a tablespoonful to a gallon of water. Allow the pillow to boil for twenty minutes; then, having ready a second boiler, or galvanized tub, of cleaa tepid water, remove the pillow (a pair of tongs will be found convenient for this purpose) and plunge It into the sec ond tub. Place this on the stove, and let the water come just to the boiling point: then remove from the Ore, but let the pillow remain in the water tlU it is safe to put your hands in and press the pillow, to see if all the soap has been washed out. If it has oat a second rinsing will be necessary. Remove from the tub and press out as much water as you can; then hang on the clothes line in the stun. While the puilowa are drying, shake and punch them as often as may be convenient.

A SPLENDID HAZARD By HAROLD MacGRATH (Copyright. 1910. The Bobba-Merrill Company.) CHAPTER XXVI. The End of the Dream. It took place on the road which runs from AJaccio to the Cape de la Parata, not far from lies Sanguinaires; not a main-traveied road. The sun had not yet Tossed the mountains, but a crisp gray light lay over land and sea. They fired at the same time. The duke lowered his pistol, and through the smoke he saw Breitmann pitch headforemost into the thick white dust. Presently, nay almost instantly, the dust at the left side of the stricken man became a creeping black ness. The surgeon sprang forward. "Dead?" asked Picard. "No: through the shoulder. He has a fighting chance." "The wine last night; my hand wasn't steady enough. Some day the fool will curse me as a poor shot. The devil take the business! not a sou for my pocket. out of all the trouble I have had. But for the want of a clear head I should be a rich man to-day. Who thought he would come ba-k?" "I did." answered M. Ferraud. "Your' "With pleasure: I brought him back; thank me for your empty po kets. Mon sieur. If I were you I should not land at Marseilles. Try Livarno, by all means, Livarno." "For this?" asked Picard. with a jerk of his head toward Breitmann. who was being carefully lifted on to the carriage seat. 'No: for certain letters you have not sent to the Wuai d'Orsay. Tou compre hend?" "What do you mean?" truculently; for Picard was not in a kindly mood this morning. But the little Bayard of the Quai laughed. "Shall I explain here, Mon sieur? Be wise. Go to Italy, all of you. This time you overreached. Monsieur le Due. Your ballet dancers must wait!" And with rare insolence. M. Ferraud showed his back to his audience, climbed to the seat by the driver, and bade him return slowly to the Grand Hotel. Hildegarde refused to see any one but M. Ferraud. Hour after hour she sat by the bed of the injured man. Knowing that in all probability he would live, she was happy for tlw first time in years. He needed her; alone, broken, wrecked among his dreams, he needed her. He had recovered consciousness almost at once, and his first words were a curse on the man who had aimed so badly. He could talk but little, but he declared that he would rip the bandages if they did not prop his pillows so he could see the bay. The second time he woke he saw Hildegarde. She smiled broken!y, but he turned his head aside. "Has the yacht gone yet?" "No." "When will it sail?" "To-morrow." H-?r heart swelled with fitter pain, he woman he loved would be on that yacht. But toward Iaura she held nothing but kindness tinged with a wondering envy. Was not she. Hilde garde, as beautiful? Had I.aura more talents than she. more accomplishments? Alas, yes; one! She had had the uncon scious power of making this man love her. To and fro she waved the fan. For a while, at any rate, he would be hers. And when M. Ferraud said that the others wished to say farewell she de clined. She could look none of them in the face again, nor did she care. She was sorry for Cathewe. His lire would be as broken as hers; but a man has the world under his feel, scenes of action, changes to soothe his hurt; a woman has little else but her needle. All through the day and ail through the night she remained on guard, surrender ing her vigil only to M. Ferraud. With cold cloths she kept down the fever, wip ing the hot face and hands. He would pull through, the surgeon said, but he would have his nurse to thank. There was something about the man the doc tor did not understand; he acted as if he did not care to live. The morning found her stm at her post. Breitmann awoke early, and appeared to take little interest in nis surroundings. "Why do you waste your time?'' His voice was colorless. "I am not wasting my time, Karl." His head rolled slowly over on the pil low till he could see outside. Only two or three fishing boats were visible. "When will the yacht sail?" Always that question! "Go to sleep. I will wake you when I see it." "I've been a scoundrel. Hildegarde." and he closed his eyes. Where would she go when he left this room? For the future was always rising up with this question. What would she do, how would she live? She. too, shut her eyes. The door opened. The visitor was M. Ferraud. He touched his lips with a fin ger and stole toward the bed. "Better?" She nodded. "Are you not dead for sleep?" "It does not matter." Breitmanns eyes opened, for his brain was wide awake. "Ferraud?" "Yes. They wished me to say good-by for them. "To me?" Incredulously. "They have none but good wishes." "She will never know?" ' Not unless Mr. Fitzgerald tells her." "Hildegarde. I had planned her abduc tion. Don't misunderstand. I have sunk low indeed, but not so low at that. I wanted to harry them. They would have left me free. She was to be a pawn. I shouldn't have hurt her." "You do not cere to return to Ger many?" "Nor to France, M. Ferraud." 'There's a wide world outside. You will find room enough," diffidently. "An outlaw?" tH a kind." I haven't even the wish to sorcws a Pa. Ave. be buried there. There is more to the story, more than you know. My name is Herman Stuler if I live. There is n"t a drop of French blood in my veins. Breitmann died on the field in the Sudan and I took his papers." His eyes burned into Ferraud's. "Perhaps that would be the best way," replied M. Ferraud pensively. "What shall I do with the money? It is under the bed.'' "Keep it. No one will contest your right to it. Herman Stuler; and besides, your French, fluent a.s it is, still pos sesses the Teutonic burr. Yes, Herman Stuler; very good indeed." Hildegarde ced them in wonder. Were they both mad ? "Will you be sure alway3 to remem ber?" said M. Ferraud to the bewildered woman. "Herman Stuler; Karl Breit mann. who was the great-grandson or Napoleon, died of a gunshot in Africa. If you will always remember that, why even Paris will be possible some day." riiiaegarde was beginning to under stand. She was coming to bless this lit tle man. "I do not believe that the money under the bed is safe there. I shall, if you wish, make arrangements with the local agents of the Credit Legonnais to take over the sum. without question, and to issue you two drafts, one on London ami tne other on New York, or in two letter:; of credit. Two millions: it is a big sum to let repose unuer ones bed, anywhere, let alone Corsica, where the amount might purchase half the island." "1 am. then, a rich man; no more rru sadei, no more stale bread and cheap to bacco, no more turning my cuffs and col lars and clipping the frayed edges of my trousers. I am fortunate. There is a joke. too. Picard and his friend advanced me five thousand francs for the enter prise." "I marvel where they got itr "I am sorry that I was rough with you." "I bear you not the slightest ill-will. I never have. Herman Stuler; I must re member to have them make out the drafts in that name." Breitmann appeared to be sleeping again. After waiting a moment or two, his guardian angel tiptoed out. An hour went by. "Hildegarde. have you any money?" "Knough for my needs. ' "Will you take half of it?" "Karl!" "Will your "No!" He accepted this as final. And imrnv diately his gaze became fixed on the bay. A sleek white ship was putting out to sea. "They are leaving, Karl," she said, and the courage in her eyes beat dovi the pain in her heart. "In my coat, inside; bring them to me." As he could move only his right arm. an,i that but painfully, he hade her open each paper and hold it so that he could read plainly. The scrawl of the Great ap tain; a deed and title; some dust drop ping from the worn folds; how he strained his eyes upon them. He could not help the swift intake of air. and the stab which pierced his shoulder made him faint. She began to refold them. Mi, he whispered. Tear them up. tear them up!" "Why, Karl!" "Tear them up, now, at once. I shall never look at them again. Do it. What dies it matter? I am only Herman Stu ler, now!" With shaking fingers she. ripped the tattered sheets, and the tears ran over and down her cheeks. It would not have hurt her more had she torn the man's heart in twain. He watched her with fe vered eyes till the last scrap floated into her lap. "Now, toss, them into the grate and light a match." And when he saw the reflected glare on the opposite wall he sank deeper into the pillow. The woman was openly sobbing. She came back to his side, knelt, and laid her lips upon his hand. There was now only a dim white speck on the horizon, and with that strange sea magic the hull suddenly dipped down, and naught but a trail of smoke remained. Then this, too, vanished. Breitmann withdrew his hand, but he laid it upon her head. "I am a broken man, Hildegarde, and in my madness I have been something of a rascal. But for all taatt 1 had big dreams, but thus they go, the one In flames and the other out to sea." He stroked her hair. "Will you take what is left? Will you share with me the outlaw, be the wife of a disappointed outcast? Will you?" "Would I not follow you to any land? Would I not share with you any miser ies? Have you ever doubted the strength of my love?" "Knowing that there was another?" "Knowing even that." "It is I who am little and you who are great. Hildegarde. we'll have, our friend Ferraud seek a priest this afternoon and square accounts." Her head dropped to the coverlet. After that there was no sound except the crisp metallic rattle of the palms in the freshening breeze. (THE END The Latest Dutch Collar.
