Here is a dainty little model, fashioned of fine lawn, which could be very readily manufactured at home. The simple little waist is laid in fine tucks to a shallow yoke depth the entire width of the front, the resulting fullness below being gathered into a narrow belt just below the hips. Into this belt is also gathered the little full skirt, trimmed with a narrow lace edged ruffle. Little double ruffles, edged with fine lace, trim the front and shoulders of the waist. Down the front at equal distances are tacked fou? small pink satin bows matching the sash. ELDERLY WOMEN WILL WEAR THE NATTY TURBAN Three-Cornered Napoleon Models Stylish for Ma trons Who Are Middle-Aged. How appealing the display of new mil linery must be to the average middle aged or elderly woman, for there are such odd braids of straw in grotesque shapes with eccentric trimmings that only chance or diligent search will re veal a hat or bonnet that is not too youthful. The shapes elderly women will wear are the turban, the toque and the three-cornered Napoleon. The last named has not been in favor during the last two years, but this season it will be popular. The straight, well set up middle-aged woman looks extremely at tractive in a hat made on these lines with a stiff cockade arrangement stand ing upright from the left front corner, if for morning wear, or a piece of black paradise or other feathery ornamenta tion caught with a jet ornament, if the hat is for formal occasions. Flowers are not used to trim such a shape, except when arranged in the lit tle market bunches and employed for holding the brim to the crown, and even in this instance some stiffer decoration would be a better choice. For exam ple, a quill, "a ribbon bow or a wing. Fortunately, the turban, a style so gen erally becoming, can be secured in a great variety of siiapes and sizes, for there is a pretty crln hat with high crown and small, close brim that will become the short, little woman possessing dainty features. She will probably choose trim mings soft and fluffy, such as rosettes of tulle and tiny ostrich tips, or soft ribbon and graceful sprays of lilac or forget-me not. Tuscans and Colored Straws. Then there is another model in black, tuscan and colored straws that may be described as medium. 'Since the crown Is neither high nor low. while the brim stands out before it Cheerful Girls Are Most Popular Cheerfulness Is one of the most valua ble assets that a girl can possess. For it will make friends, will hold tiiem, and best of all, it will inspire the indi vidual with courage during difficult ex periences that she might fail In did she not buoy herself with an outward pre tense of happiness. ? ? The cheerful girl is a distinct addition in any group. She need not be witty, nor constantly talking. If she has serenity and happiness in her disposition, for she gives It out as uconsclously as the sun sheas Its rays, a?id It is sufficient. In point of fact, people are like plants?they turn to the light of happiness and from the shadow of discontent. . . To tell the truth, no person's life is en tirely free from perplexities of some kind, no matter how simple their ways may be. Every one has his own troubles, and to forget them Is a component part of happi ness. Each individual has far too many woes to wish to hear those of others, which are not only depressing, but have the added disadvantage of reminding the hearer of her own. Every girl knows some one of whom others say: "Oh. she always has a tale of woe." and an in stant's reflection will make h:r remember that every one avoids that person on all possible occasions, feeling a distinct sense of relief at getting aWay from such a one. The che'erful person, on the other hand, by creating a pleasant atmosphere, re ceives the same as she gives. Her own good nature suns the depression from others, and not infrequently their mood.tf miserable, changes completely. She is always among the first invited to taks part in social affairs; people want her around, and her own cheerfulness repays her more than tenfold, because of what it gives. Coarse Tosca net In all the new shades as well as gold and silver with burnished lights has an exquisite charm and forms an Ideal background for delicate embroid eries. The popular fan of the moment is of empire style, with spangled silk top and glided or carved sandalwood stick. iturn* up and then stops before it reaches the crown, this Is the best choice for the plump-fa?ed, middle-aged woman, because the width of brim takes from the breadth of the face, while the medium-sized crown prevents the wearer from appear ing top-heavy. The womaij with a tall, stout figure will be stunning in one of the- large. rltther flat turban shapes decorated in laces, feathers, flowers, net, or, in fact, any ornamentation that suits the tastes of the wearer and Is not a plain band or a bow that is lacking in importance and there fore unsuited. There is the slight, graceful woman of middle age who Is more easily suited, for the 1900 styles in millinery are in her favor. As the droopy brims and peach basket crowns will undoubtedly become her, sudh a type must be careful to avoid extremes. But either the beehive shapa or the basket model will suit. Jaunty Toques Are Effective. Jaunty toques will become every type of middle-aged woman, be she tall or short, stout or thin. Those in sjft shirred braid ings trimmed in pastel shades are lovely. surmounting gray or white fluffy hair, while iron gray locks will look best be neath a style that Is more 'severe. Crushed straw toques simply trimmed with a bow of ribbon or a quill are smart. Ribbons twisted In and out of the braid, then caught with a bow or a bunch of fruit, give a pretty efTect, and such a hat will be practical for general wear. Fruit as a trimming is extremely popu lar, and middle-aged women may adopt it freely. The sallow, iron-gray-haired wom an will Icok stylish If a bunch of ripe cherries is added to her hat. The florid matron should choose black berries, black or dark red currants, dull red raspberries or black cherries. Grapes will be a stun ning choice for the woman with soft gray or white hair, and so will dark red cher ries or a twist of cherry-colored velvet. Peanut Jab Is Nice Game for Youngsters A good game to start the ball a-rolling would be peanut jab. As many dishes for wafer are provided as there are couples. These are placed on small card tables. On top of each dish of water a dozen pea nuts are set floating. Then each individ ual Is provided with a hatpin and the game is called. The object is to Jab the nuts with the pin and land them in a pretty dish for this purpose without touching them wltfl the Angers. When time is called the cou ple that has been most successful retains the nuts in lieu of score cards. The game is progressive, the successful contestants working toward the head table. Prizes may be In keeping with the season. Among these are Easter bonnets made of raffia to hang beside a dressing bureau and hold hatpins; fluffy ducklings, chick en powder puffs, white jack rabbits, egg cups and other Easter novelties.

Exciting: Contest Wu the First in Church History Extending Over Two Hundred Years. NEW YORK, April 14.?The present vestry of Trinity Church was re-elected yesterday at the annual election over the St. John's anti-administration ticket by a vote of 529 to 124. a majority of 403. The administration of Trinity Corpora tion Is elated over the result regarding the vote as an Indorsement of its policy toward St. John's Chapel and of Its con duct of the affairs of the parish. "The rector, the Rev. Dr. William T. Manning, while declining to make a for mal statement at this time, was evidently deeply pleased wlth.the large vote which the administration had polled. ' He was surrounded by members of the vestry, accepting their congratulations for him self, as well as congratulating those on whom the church had voted directly. The election had numerous interesting features, It was the first fight made on Trinity's regularly nominated vestry in at least 200 years. The voting was con ducted precisely as a political election Is' conducted, the similarity extending even to canvassers, sentinels and watch ers for both parties. The white ticket of St. John's and the pale baby blue of? the administration Were handed _io every person who enter ed the church, no matter by what door, so alert were the outposts of each side. The "workers" for the administration wOre nothing to distinguish them, but me , opposition men had ribbons in their la pels bearing the name of St. John's. These workers were by far the most active. .One enthusiastic inhabitant of Varick ' street unknowingly accosted Col. Wil liam Jay, a leader of the administration forces, as. the colonel appeared to cast his ballot. ?It was their purpose to take the matter Into court if Trinity had needed this votes of these two chapels to win. It was in having their vote thrown out that St. John's really hoped to elect Its j ticket. An interesting feature of the election was the voting of six Chinamen from the Sunday school of St. Paul's Chapel. These came to Trinity in two groups of three | under the guidance of curates from the ] chapel. Several youths under twenty-one attempted to vote, under the Impression that they were entitled to do so, but were turned back when their ages were learned! The election. In spite of the contest, was carried on with the utmost good spirit, and when dinner came all sat down to perhaps the first meal ever served in Trinity Church. The certificate of the eiection was en tered in the record by Col. Jay about 10 ofclock last nlgnt, the book running back to 1707, and this was the only contest It showed.

I LATER INAUGURATION FAVORED PETWORTH UNANIMOUSLY VOTES FOB AN APRIL DATE. Selection of a Public Park Presented to the Consideration of the Citizens' Association. The Petworth Citizens' Association, at a meeting last night in the Petworth M. E. Church, Shepherd street and Georgia avenue northwest, unanimously adopted a resolution favoring a change in the date of the inauguration until the latter part of April. The resolution was presented by W. L. Gutelius. Secretary*C. L. Gable was directed to communicate this infor mation to the proper authorities. The selection of a public park in Pet worth was advocated by J. I. Painter and at the close of his remarks the matter was referred to tha committee on streets, sidewalks and lights. He suggested a plot of ground west of the Soldiers' Home grounds between Upshur and Allison streets. The view, he said, was beautiful, while the tract was directly on a car line and supplied with a fine spring. Irregular Numbering. In connection with the irregular system of numbering houses in that section the [ association was informed by the Commis sioners that the building Inspector desig nates and directs the numbering of houses and buildings and orders changes to be made In the numbering of any^ building when.necessary. The members of the as sociation were invited to make individual i requests in waiting for proper house num- j bers to the inspector of buildings. It j was claimed that a number of new houses recently built contained a different series of numbers, not only on adjoining squares, but also on the same square. ? The secretary was directed to write ?to the Engineer Cpmmissloner and ascertain the status of the question of sewers for 1 .that section and also the Intention of. the i Commissioners in their ?nrtual estimates j for next year. Public School Equipment. I. C. Ellis reported relative to the com- j plaint made to the boa^d of education of defective property and equipment In the Petworth Public School. President Oys ter in a letter informed the association thati the matters complained of were be ing investigated and would be remedied at an early date. The Commissioners will be requested to cover the roadway of Varnum and Upshur streets with the crushed stone now lying idle in that vicinity. The Commissioners informed the asso ciation that It is contrary to their policy to place crossings in a macadamized road way. as requested at Taylor street and Georgia avenue. In the absence from the city of Presi dent Cromwell, Vice President George W. Stoce occupied the chair. Refreshments were served at the close of the meeting. Personals of Bhrer Men. Capt.
