NEW YORK, June 1. 1006. NO prettier models for afternoon frocks could be desired than the frocks worn by the bridesmaids at the recent weddings; many of these by the removal of their yokes or gulmpe*. make charming dinner riibes as well. . The graceful blue mull frocks worn by the attendants of Mis. Sara Franceslea ner. who married Dr. Ejnar Hansen a few days ago In the Church of the Epiphany, were illustrations In point. These frocks were princess rcbes. "w th lare panels from yoke to feet and Sengt ^ wise tucks and lace Insertions at the sides and back.

The body of each robe was divided In panels by lengthwise groups of three or four narrow tucks, each group, say, an Inch and a quarter wide, extending from the yoke to the group of tucks at the bot tom These groups were perhaps two Inches apart at the waist line, separating 'j.3 they went up or down; between them were narrow Insertions of V alenciennes. The panel fronts were close fitting and formed of inch-wide Valenciennes insertions Joined together and slanting In toward the center, and up at the outside, each strip ending in a picket point. Pale blue velvet ri!.!x>n, perhaps three-fourths of an Inch wide crossed the lace p;inel, forming crosses or X's, each end of the velvet ter minating in a tiny bow at the picket points of lace At a guess, these bows appeared on every fourth picket point of the panel. The sleeves were exceedingly summery looking as well as the frocks. They were large single puffs of the blue mull ending Just around the elbows and were covered from top to bottom with narrow ruffles. Bay an Inch and a half wide, of \ alenciennes lace, each ruffle overlapping the head of that beneath, but all standing crisply out so that glimpses of the blue foundation could be seen. Wider ruffles of lace fin ished the elbow bands. The hats were rather small French hats of pale blue Neaplltan. rolled at both sides, but most at the left and turned up at the ba k. The whole of the back and the rolled left side were covered with white lilacs massed flatly against the brim, and these extended around, forming bandeaus at the right From the omwn two pale blue os trvh tips swept softly across the crown >nd down over the lilacs. The attendants c.irrled armfuls of white lilacs and the * hurch was decorated with both white and mauve lilacs. Mrs. Faneull S. D. Bethune. a sister of the bride, was her maid of honor, and the other attendants were a younger sister. Aliss Anna J. Jenner, whose engagement to S ^r.ing T Foote, a grandson of the Rev. Thomas Hastings. D.D., was announced several week? since; Miss Edith Van Rens selaer Mcllvalne, Mrs Howard Bartow Key. Mrs John Izaard Mlddleton and Miss Emi lia de Apeziegula. the latter daught?rs of the late Marquis de Apeateguia. The bride's gown was one of the most summery and youthful of the recent bridal gowns, and will be worn by Mrs. Hansen when she makes her bow this summer at the court of Denmark. Dr. Hansen has taken his bride to Denmark for the sum mer His father received from the late king. father of Queen Alexandra, the title of Canclleraad, the equivalent of the Eng lish knighthood. This wedding gown was white chiffon, a princess, close at the waist line and spread ing from that point, full folds to the Boor. The train, not very long, was round, very full, and, like the entire skirt, was bordered with Irish point lace set In around the edge over a full ruchlng of chiffon. The deep V's of point lace extended up some fourteen Inches, the lower edge being, of course, ?olid. The top of the robe had a Dutch neck and a square removable guimpe formed of tlimy lace, below which the corsage por tion was drawn In, apparently by shlrrlngs. about the waist and hips. A short, square bolero of Irish point matching the border of the gown was worn, and each sleeve was two full puffs of chiffon finished at the bottom with point lace. " The voluminous tulln veil, a double one. fell around her like a mist enveloping her from bead to foot in both the front *nd the back The two veils were gathered In a low very full ruche just back of the low, dark pompadour of her coiffure. Point d'Angleterre lace formed the bridal robe of Miss Elizabeth Davla, now Mrs. John Klrkman Berry. This wedding was of much general interest, as the bride, who bas for some time made her home in New York with her sister. Mrs. Fairfax Land ?treet. Is a niece of Mrs. Stephen P. Elkins and a granddaughter of ex-Senator Henry Gaasaway Davis of Washington. The wedding took place In St. Thomaa Church, and was followed by a reception at the St. Regie. ?? conveniently near thai church that many are giving the wedding receptions there, saving the upsetting of their homes, and also proving most con venient to the guests. The picturesque church, a temporary structure built entirely of dark wood In side the walls o? the burned edl9c?. was a forest of dogberry, api^le boughs, and other large boughs of spring flowers, covering the pillars from pews to celling, banking the wall, filling the chancel, and also fas tened in profusion to the ends of the pews. Unfortunately, however, the day was an extremely hot one, and the flowers drooped perceptibly. The bride was escorted to the chancel and given In marriage by her uncle and guard ian. Colonel Davis. She wore a soft satin, probably a liberty, completely covered with flounces of point d'Angleterre. The train was a long round one. also flounced. The lace flounces were nine or ten inches deep and overlapped the least bit. They extended from the waist line to the floor, and the bodice was draped with them. This bodice had a stock and small, square guimpe of tucked chiffon.^ Small puffs of chiffon extended from the shoulder , EMBROIDERED IN I.EAVES. seams out and formed narrow puff epau lets over the lace flounces of the elbow sleeves The bride, being very tall and exceedingly slight, the many lace flowers and shoulder puffs suited her. The bridal veil was a voluminous one to the end of the train, made of tulle and fastened behind her dark pompadour. The maid of honor and bridesmaids wore white Valenciennes frocks, trimmed with narrow ruffles of the same lace. The maid of honor, Miss Katharine Elkins, had white silk undersllp, the lace robe and a white sash, and the bridesmaids had pink slips and sashes. The bridesmaids were the Misses Katharine Berry. Mary Wheeler, Kathleen Sheridan and Lucy Young. The gowns were on princess lines, with sheath skirts, the material allover Valenciennes WHITE Ml I.I.E WITH BLACK EMM APPLl<tUK?

Tn?r were most summery-looking gowns, and Che bride s was quite the most filmy and cool-ioftklnf bridal gown so far of the season. The hats of the attendants were enor mous, of pale yellow straw, with Immense ly wide brims and crowns perhaps an inch and a half high. Huge pink roses filled in around the crowns and partially covered them as well as the brims. These roses were arranged flatly and showed Incon spicuous foliage. The brims were quite as wide In the back as elsewhere, and from the head bandeaus were probably built out vifth tulle, but those did not show. Each girl carried a sheaf of shaded and vary large pink roses, so arranged that many of the rosei extended from the rlb bon-tled section downward as well as up There was also a bevy of four little girl tots ranging from four to six years of age, all niece!? of the bride, who were charm ing In their hatless heads, white 'Valen ciennes slips ruffled with Valenciennes and having wide pink sashes. Each carried a leghorn hat basket tilled with pink roses. Mrs. Liandstreet, a slter of the bride, wore a princess robe of white guipure lace over white silk and a white plumed hat. Mrs. Paul Morton, who came with her husband. Secretary Morton, was in a white writing costume of most unusual material for a coat costume of the utility type. It had a three-quarter length, three-quarter fitting coat and a skirt that cleared the floor fully four inches and had Insertions and fiouncings of heavy white lace ma terial. evidently a figured or embroidered linen. The linen, or whatever it was. was divided Into strips some three or four Inches wide, each marked nearly its whole width by spear-point design* an inch and a half apart, the strips being joined by heavy lace. The coat was bordered by the lace, and the sleeves, of a bit more than elbow length, had cuffs and collar of it. The skirt app l red to be formed of insertions of the material and lace running around. It was finished by a lace and linen flounoe some nine inches wide, and seemed to have another one two or three inches above it. The coat came to within sixteen inches or so of tiie skirt's edge. Her hat, of medium size and white chip, was trimmed with white ostrich plumes. A handsome White linen gown worn by a young girl at this wedding was of heavy, soft material, with a skirt formed of many panel-shaped gores that tapered in to the waist line with the closeness of a circular skirt and formed a sheath. These panels, of course, widened as they grew near the bottom, and each one had an enormous white flower nearly the whole width of the panel embroidered on it. These flowers were twelve inches across, and from each one a spray of leaves, five in number, embroid ered in outline, extended up each panel to a point above the knees. At the bottom there was a three-Inch plain hem. The bodice had a stock and square guimpe of Irish crochet. The bodice itself was embroidered in irregular scallops where it lapped over on the guimpe. It was square at the top and had six half-Inch plaits, over the tops of which the embroidery pass ed. These tucks turned from the center and gave spring over the bust; at the bot tom the material was plaited in under a five-inch girdle made of inch-wide blas^inen folds with pearl buckles, one at the front, the other at the bafli. In the center front of the corsage was a flower matching those on the panels, but only eight Inches across, and on each side of it was a spray of the leaves. The back was similarly done, only there were two flowers, one on each Bide, and the leaves extended up the center, cov ering the overlapping sections that lnvitlbly closed the bodice. The sleeves were a new design and ex tended nearly to the knuckles, the lower edge forming a cup-like flare from t.ie wrists out and having at each seam a little V-shaped design In Irish crochet inserted, the sharp point turning upward. These Vs were three Inches long and gave most of the flare to the linen extension The linen was hemmed an inch dee?), and a border ruffle of Valenciennes lace was set In under the edge ail around. The top of the sleeves was quite large and full, the general shape of the sleeves being a leg-of-mutton from the top to the elbow and a coat sleeve from the elbow to the wrists. Bach top had a large flower embroidered on It. and the leaves trailed from it down over the elbow and the outside and upper part of the rather close coat sleeve section. Topping this costume, which, by the way, had a quite long skirt, waa a white chip hat turned up very high at the right side, where bunches of blue hydrangea blossoms were massed, and bands of blue moire rib bon could be seen. This ribbon was also folded around the crown and appeared at the back in soft chous again the bandeau. One of the prettiest organdy frocks yet noted also blossomed out at this ceremony. It had a white ground and clusters of palest pink roses with the faintest possible foliage In large leaves. It was worn over a soft pale pink slip. It was a princess robe, and the bodice top, formed of strips of the organdie just wide enough to show single roses Joined by Inch-wide Valenciennes in LOIDERED DOTS AMD BLACK LACE BLACK RIBBON, PARIS FASHION^ "S 'flpMltl OKTMPOBdcttM <* Th? 8t*% Paris, ?, >sc*l HOITLD Vomio ?moker For the past weak this problem has been filling the mind* of cer tain Parisians who take their ideas from the editorials of & well-known morning paper here at the gay capital. It has always seemed to me that the easiest way of answering a Question Is to put another. To carry out my pet theory It might be pertinently asked, "Wtiy shouldn't they?" And this, Bf course, brings one to the everlasting subject of the Inequality of the sexes. I reckon there never was a time when women were con tent with their position. If ttiere was, pre sumably smoking was not the prerogative of one sex alone. In these advanced days, however, women In the upper classes smoke In nearly every country In the world, with the possible exception of Germany. There Is an imaginativeness about tobacco that one does not associate with the stolid haus frau. The Spanish woman Is an inveterate devotee of the cigarette; so is the Rus sian. The Parisian takes dainty little puffs at the weed, and her American sister Is said to do likewise on occasion. Even In virtuous England the custom pre vails to a certain extent. Certain people, the world over are bound to be shocked at something, but to those among us who move In an atmosphere of more or less genteel toleration such ideas doinot count Whether we are personally in the habit of enjoying a cigarette with our coffee or not. we have been used for so many years to seeing our friends doing It that we aro Inclined to wonder In what primeval caves the "shocked" ones have their hab itation. How many women smoke for the p'easure of it and how many simply be cause it is the fashion is of course not an easy matter to estimate. But can it se riously be contended by any one born in the last twenty-five years that all the women are necessarily unsexed and un sound, living without the fear o? God or the respect of man. because they whiff at a usually nasty cigarette in the Intervals of sipping their equally nasty coffee. I,, at least, am not to be numbered among the ? Apropos of'the subject we have been dis cussing. cigarette cases naturally play quite an important part among the et cet eras of the toilet of the fashionable womwi. The style considered most chic by the smart Parisienne Is a plain gold case with a monogram in precious stones in the cor ner - A decided novelty, though in the cigarette case is of gun metal mlaid with silver with the re%-erse side of clear cr>s tnl framed in a deep band of silver.

These .points hung looseiy over a triple flounce arrangement of the organ die The basis of these was a deep shaped flounce of the organdie edged with lace and having on it three overlapping circular flounces of the organdie, each edged with an inch-wide ruffle of the Valenciennes. The top of the gown was an old-fashionea round-necked gathered tucker of white net, the pointed neck, as low as the Dutch sort, having a band of heavy white lace as a fin ish, the net being shirred into it. This tucker had shirrings every Inch and ended under the overlapping bodice. The latter was also edged by heavy lace an inch wide, having little points, and also, openings through which pink liberty satin was run. this ribbon being tied In the center front with bows four Inches and ends six inches long. The sleeves were full puffs of the organdie ending several Inches above the elbows in bands of heavy white lace, having pink ribbon run through and tied at the outside In bows matching that on the bodice. Double ruffles of white net, each edged with a two-inch Valenciennes border, some four Inches below the elbows fell over long white silk gloves. The hat was a white net with lace-edged ruffles of white net standing up around the crowns and an .all-lace ruffle over one of net extending out over the brim. A pale pink liberty ribbon was wound around the crown, tied In a loose bow with ends at the back and at the left side two very large, very pale pink roses, with loose petals, and pale-green leaves were placed. Another hat noted was a black chip with a mound-shaped crown and round. Irreg ularly bent brim, the latter rolled back against the crown at the right side near the back. It was trimmed with clusters of pale green grapes that looked like crystal, Interspersed with white roses In three sizes, the smaller ones being at the right and the larger ones at the left and back. Glimpses of pale green tulle showed at the back and covered the narrow bandeau. The flowers went around the base of the crown, resting partially on the brim. At the left side the liat was raised by the bandeau and was filled In with white rosefouds and grape tendrils. It was really an exquisite millin ery creation. MARIE WQLDON. A USE FOB COMBINGS. Have a "Bat" or Curls Made. Falling hair Is the bane of more than one woman's existence in these days of much curled coiffures and endless ner vous cares. The cause of It 1s very ap parent. "Rats" and other forms of pad ding to make the hair look full have overheated the head and prevented the air from reaching the oil glands of the scalp. Tongs, too. have done their share toward thinning luxuriant locks, until at last the majority of women have but a handful of their hair left, and false pieces have become an actual necessity.

After the measurement had been taken the head Of the establishment called the lady apart and said: "Madame, unless you prom ise to (o at once to a good corsetlere and have the correct stay* made we will be oWigsd to. consider your order off." The patron's eye grew warlike, but she re strained her anger and did as she was ad vised, with a result that was satisfactory on both aides. If ever a perfect figure were essential to the followers of Dame Fashion it it surely at the present, when the corselet skirt and princess dress are dividing the honors be tween them. For an 111-fltting corset wtll COEEECT PARISIAN COESET ] ruin the effect of either of these gowns most effectually. In fact, there may be a few naturally perfect figures, but the ma jority of women with the "form divine" owe it to their corsetlere. These clever artists know Just the requirements of the slim and stout figure. They know that a slight form must needs have a corse<t that will give free play to the lines at the hips, and they wtll be equ&iiy as insistent upon giving the women verging upon avoirdupois a corset long and exceedingly snugly cut over the htp curve and abdomen. Busts are made high or low according to the gen eral tendehcy of the customer, a filling out here and a taking in there producing mag ical transformations.

The girl with the smooth and finished coiffure gave a smile of fellow-feeling. "Yes, that's my experience, too. My hair grows in as fast as it falls out. Never theless. no matter what tonics I use, nor how good care I take of it. the quantity of oombings does not change, and as often as once in two weeks I have enough to fill a pound candy box.

Then there is a riding corset in broche coutil, high above the waist and short In front, dipping gradually on the hips. In materials the choice is limited only by the pocket book. Brocades of priceless value are pressed into service, and even the popular broderie anglaise finds Its way into the making1 of corsets. This model, of course, is designed for summer wear. It is of openwork bjiiste, trimmed with the embroidery, and is the smartest little sum mer corset that has appeared. Yet another novelty which is a boon to women of slen der figures is a very light corset short on the 'hips and shorter still at the back.

Dame Nature. But to come back to the talk of the town, the gay Parisian tittle tattle of the day, the vernalasage of the Salon des Beaux Art*, was quite a brilliant affair. 8- me of the dresses were lovely, and there were lota of pretty women present. The robe princes* waa very much to the fore, but I noticed a great many gowns worn by the ultra chic women which reprea.-nt"<? outline* that were neither "prln< .-ea nor "empire." but which borrowed from both modes. If you can Imagine a very short-waiste<! princess dress accompanied by a t>.?lero or by a shoulder cape you will have a food Impression of the gown I am trying to describe. It Is a little eccentric an 1 I think a little unbecoming to most figure*, but It Is a fad of the moment. A very charming actress, whose stage gowns al ways herald the styles of the day aft or tomorrow, wore on Saturday afternoon at ths exhibition a gown of this kind The material was suede cloth In a light biscuit shade. The skirt was set in flat pairs all round the waist, which was exceedingly short for a long waist and long for a waist a la empire. There was a folded waist band. terminating In a big flat chou m front of fJ?f green chiffon velours and j. round bolero of pure white chamois leath. r, with some delicate embroideries In gold ati.l fig green chenille.

This gown did not for an Instant sukk. st the empire outline, and certainly It not a Just a word about the pictures at the Salon des Beaux Arts, which were good bad and a few IndllTerent. There were an enormous number of "nude" studies, and the best thing about these Is that they will not injure the morals of any living beings, for almost without exception th.^y are pictures of ugly, badly built women. Boldlnl's portraits were the sensation of the day. They are extraordinary as color schemes, but as portraits Impossible If this artist had painted the much talkt d about "Paquln a Cinq Heures," the dress makers" picture, It would certainly have been the sensation of the year for Bol dinl's women are always chic as to th.-ir pose, their gowns, their atmosphere, but these attributes have no. piace in M Ger vex's "Paquin a Cinq Heures." in tha center of the picture there is a manikin wearing a historic empire model robe, Poor manikin!

"The result Is that I have discovered something that is far ahead of any ex pensive 'rat' or wlre-cuihlon pompadour, and It cost me only seventy-live cents. It Is a 'string' of hair Just long enough to reach from ear to ear over the top of my head. Hairs long and short are fastened the length of this string as closely as they can be woven. The finished string ii pinned exactly like a rat underneath the circle of front hair which is parted for the pompadour. The string and the real hair are then handled and pinned In place as though they were one and the same. As you see, there Is never any sep arating of locks to display matted hair or ungainly wire rolls. "The string of hair doesn't work very successfully when I wear a part In the middle of my coiffure for the low style of halrdresslng. so I have had two short strings made, and they tit Into each of the side puffs. The beauty of the string is that It can be made all sorts of differ ent lengths and helps to puff out tajri rt of the colfTure Where your own hair happens to be scant. If you try one of them, though, remember not to twist your combings together tightly, as when this Is done It Is almost impossible to un tangle the silken hairs, and the string is consequently less full and even." Give the Baby a Chance. From tbe Outing Magazine. Love isn't a sickening mush of concession. Love Is firm. Love Is just. Love has go ,d. red blood In Its veins. Looking over to the ultimate good of Its object, love frequently decrees suffering and anguish of spirit. And I tell you what, my dear madam: Some day, for his bad temper and Impu dence. you are going to slap or spank that child you are now too tender hearted to let cry. Yes, you are. Just as sure as you are born. And you won't slap him in love, either! Think of the shame of it!?you are going to beat the child for the evil qualities that you yourself instilled In him. Vou are going to beat him In anger, thereby making open confession that your mean, petty, starved nature has not enough moral force by which to rule him. Shame! shame! Give the baby a chance to have a healthy brain and nervous system. Do you realize that his brain grows more during his first year than in all his other years combined? That means don't ever play with him dur ing his first year, or let any one else p ay with him. "Kltchee-coo!" cries the visitor. "Oh, oo sweet, precious 'jttle dear!" And, poor baby gets pocked In the ribs and tossed up in the air. Very bad. Baby may laugh, and baby may crow; but by and by will cotne the Inevitable wall and sleepless hours to teH of the over-stimulated brain and the severe tax on the nervous system. The Latest Veils. From Harper's Bazar. The new Tells are fascinating and oovel. There are. as always, the plain and dotted nets, the chiffon In every color, and ths sheer lace veil, but the latest fad Is the laca mesh aa sheer as possible, with round dot woven tn. and the veil two yards long, edged on either side and at the ends wltn narrow pleatlngs of chlffion or silk. These are In ail colors and can be draped easily and In becoming fashion so thai the ends fall at the back.
