Neto York, March 5. Gloves with
buttonholed openings in the finger
Hipsf,"just sufficient for milady's rosy,
highly polished fingernails to show
through, are the very latest freak of
fashion for evening wear. This out-a-the-finger
mode started on the
Hiviera and has been snatched at
TPith eager hands and taken up or
father on by all the well done lady
'fingers of Paris.
That's what my friend, the war
correspondent writes me, and he
bught to know, for though he's over
there to watch the warfare he doesn't
miss much appertaining to the more
lair. He has a weather eye on-the
sideline, 'twere. According to his ex
pert opinion, the peck-a-be glove
when it reaches our midst will bid
fair to rival even the vogue of the
Merry Widow hat.
gAnyway, it ought to boost business
for the busy little manicures, for with

high, too, my dears, but you simply

sailor shapes. Likewise painted in
'nosegays that would put poor Flora
to the blush are those omnipresent
ribbon bands that tie round the new
spring hats with dinkey bows and
drippy ends behind. Transparent
hats with wide floppy brims of lace,
maline or chiffon are in again and
these also when the brim is of plain
ungathered chiffon spurn not a hand
painted rose or two in their gossa
mer surfaces.
There's heaps of dot and dash
about most of the new spring silks.
Those that haven't had a check put
on them will have us all quite dotty if
we don't watch out, for polka dots
from the pin point variety up to the
dimensions of a 25-cent piece and
are as thick as peas. These good old
reliable combinations of a white dot
on a black or navy blue 'ground and
vice-versa are much in evidence. Like
the complete check outfit to go with
these dotted frocks there are also
shown forsooth stockings, hats, para
sols and handkerchiefs as dotty as
they make 'em. Don't you just dote
on dots?
