N. E. A. Staff Correspondent
CHICAGO M. Antorian Barthelemy,
French consul, went out to Marigold
Gardens and dreamed he was back tn
the Rue de la Paix.
Anybody would. An eyeful of the
Fashion Revue, just starting a three

Seventy mannequins girls chosen
for their pretty faces, slim ankles,
rounded cheeks, dvmpled chins and
perfect shoulders are displaying these
charms. plus 46C0.000-worth f-clothea
Three times nightly they parade
among the tables at Marigold. It's a
blur of suits, cloaks, negligees, hats,
nighties and "combinations" if you
know what that means.
Each dress or undress seeks to
capture and captivate the eye. It's a
contest, sometimes between a $10,000
evenJng gown and a Z )0 unmention
able. Betting odds are on the latter.
The style committee of the Associa
tion of Commerce is putting on the
style show in collaboration with the
Chicago Garment Makers' Association,

Wholesale Furriers' Association,

Armed watchmen are on guard at
Marigold day and night to guard the
costly garments.
The mannequins, after knocking 'em
dead at Marigold, are going to take
daily strolls up and down Michigan
boulevard, wearing some of the eye
shockers. They will also appear on
the beaches, at golf courses and other
public events.
"Thfs is the biggest style show on
record in America," said M. E. Bergen
field, director of the display. "We
combed the country for beautiful man
nequins. There's a famine in them.
So many musical shows are rehearsing
or touring that beautiful young women
are i'n demand."
Forecast of Styles
Generally speaking the gowns for
thcs coming winter are to be waistless,
hipless, sleeveless, straight-lined, and
shorter than ever. All sorts of fabrics,
richer and more gorgeous as to color
ing and design even, than formely, will
be used. The dresses shown are more
elaborately trimmed than those of last
season, arid much handwork In the way
of embroi'dery is in evidence. Conven
tional designs, picked out in braids,
beads, wool or silk floss give the mod
els an elaborate appearance without
destroying the straight-line effect that
is to be the keynote of smartness.
Save in dancing frocks there i's very
little added in the way of adjustable
trimming. These latter are flounced,
ruffled, be-flowered and be-sashed un
til they are more bouffant than ever.
Also they are very, very short. Tulle
and lace still hold their own, in fact,
are advanced in popularity over this
summer, which, they tell me, has been
a "lace season." But di'nner and for
mal opera or ball gowns are of unri
valed richness, built of velvets, bro
cades, and gold and silver cloths. .
To Be a Fur Season
1 The furs shown at Marigold Gardens
5 I
This is most popular mannequin
; ' ...
are luxurious beyond anything dreamed
by the ordinary mortal. Sleeveless
wraps 48 inches long, augmented by
cape collars 28 and 30 inches deep, are
the last word in beauty. Dark Russian
squirrel and perfectly matched mink
were the skins chosen for two of the
handsomest creations.
Street furs are long this year in
stead of short as they were last, and
The new one-piece "tailored" dresses are elaborately embroidered
most of the more tailored coats with j
sleeves are as long as the dressier
capes. The Dolman style is much in
evidence, one especially attractive gar
ment being of Hudson seal trimmed
in skunk.
Many cloth wraps, also, are bei"ng
shown and are finding much favor
among women visitors at the fashion
show who anticipate needing an all
round utility garment. They are all
elaborately trimmed in fur, however,
and in many cases are ,even more
graceful in line than the more ex
pensive all fur coats.
Semi-Tailored Dresses
The one-piece serge or tricotlne dress
which for so long has been the faithful
friend of every smart woman's wljrter
wardrobe, has taken a new lease on
life. Perhaps the most, generally in
teresting exhilbt of the whole show
are these semi-tailored dresses, which
are far less severe this season than i
formerly. The long, waistless. straight
lines remain, but that is about all the'
kindship existing between them and
last year's dress. The necks are cut
lower, and no sleeves are longer than
the elbow most of them are shorter.
All these frocks are heavily embroid
ered, some of them in an almost bar
baric brilliance of colors. Fullness,
straight-lined, but fullness neverthe
less, has been introduced In the skirts
and there is more than one suggestion
of a sash.
The model that won the most ap
plause from the visitors was a blue
French serge heavily embroidered in
black with clever inserts of black
satin in bodice front, and at each side
of the paneled skirt. The dress was
abruptly cut off over the hips to ac
commodate an inlet of accordion
plaiting. . Other features of the frock
were a sash of the satin t?ed in a big',"--
soft bow on the left side, the ends fin-
ished with gold tassels, and the shorty
slit sleeves, faced in the satin and .
caught back to form quaint cuffs.
Children's Clothes J
The little people have not heen for- .
gotten by American designers this sear,
son i'f the fashion show exhibit of i
children's clothes is any indication.
Mothers viewing the models raved over
several . which they called "adorably " "i
One that stood out as particularly '
original was a wee affair of practical j
dark blue taffeta, very crisp and !
smart, made in typical romper style. !
It was trimmed in tan bands, cross-
stitched in scarlet, and the charming ;
baby who played mannequin in it was .
the one beauty present whom every 1
body even the chaperoned-husbands
wives wanted to kiss.

Bob Must Share My Mourning For My
Cut Tresses
Bob. and I swung out of the gate to
the swell of triumphal applause' from
the members of the ballet of the bal
lots, after which we proceeded down
town in dead silence. I could feel,
without being told, that my husband
was- impatient with me for my part in
the girl's foolery. I knew very well
that Bob and I were in for another
uuarrel. I asked myself why he ad
mired cropped hair for other girls and
refused to admire it for his wife?
And why would he yield to a crowd
of pretty girls the very point he had
refused me?

tone in my hurried "goodbye" I almost
ran into the establishment.
I was furious with the girls, furious
with Bob for listening to them, furious
with myself. It was perfectly plain
tnat Bob had never cared one mite
about my hair. I could have screamed
as I donned the white linen cover-all
and prepared for the shearing.
"Too bad to do this," warned the
barber. "I hope madame will have no

"No," said Wiggily Worm to Mr. Tingaling, the fairyman landlord, "I don't

In now. Mr. Ant, what do you think about it?"
Mr. Ant, who had stopped in for a mug of cider and a nibble of apple-seed
cake, looked very wise. "Well, said he gazing around the walls and ceiling
which had turned quite brown, "I always believe in a compromise."
A compro what?" cried everybody, Including Nancy and Nick who were
listening to every word. -

"There's rosemary for you, that's for

An old superstition that was cur
rent during the Middle Ages was that
three girls should gather on the eve
of St. Magdelene. A lfquid should be
prepared from the rosemary of which
each drinks. Without a worci, they
must then go to sleep. If the charm
was not broken .the dream of each
girl would reveal her uture.
Called Mary's Rose
The name is derived from the latin.
rosamarius, meaning dew of the sea,
because it grows near the seashore and
the leaves look silvery as if they were
covered with dew. It was dedicatd
to the Virgi"n Mary and called Mary's
A Spanish fairy tale deals with the
flower. The king of Spain had a rose
mary bush of which he was very
proud. One day he was playing his
flute. Suddenly a beautiful eirl step
ped forth from the bush. Startled,
the king dropped the instrument and
the maiden disappeared. The kfng im
mediately fell in love with the beauti
ful girl and when it was necessary for
mm to leave he STave th nrpplous

Spell Is Broken
One day his two sisters happened to
play a flute near the bush when the
girl appeared again. Jealous of her
beauty they struck the girl. From that
time on the bush withered. The head
gardener In distress, overheard two
dragons in a nearby forest saying that
dragon's blood would revive the rose
mary bush. So he attacked and killed
the dragons and poured the blood on
the roots of the bush thereby breaking
the spell and the released princess
Rosa Maria married the king of Spain.
An old-fashioned philosopher, after
meditating earnestly on what ails the
world today, recently gave vent to the
following list of ills:
Too many silk shirts and not enough
blue flannel ones.
Too many serge suits and not enough
. Too much decollete and not enough
Too many satin upholstered limou
sines and not enough cows.
Too much envy of the results of hard
work and too little desire to emulate it.
Too many desiring short cuts to
wealth and too few willing to pay the
price. Edinburgh Scotsman.
VANCOUVKK. B. C. The Indians of
Northern and Central British Columbia
are now in the throes of the height of
the social season. One potlatch
scarcely ends before another starts
The Indians gathered at Morrlcetown
a short time ago in large numbers and
tra.ve away to each other all their per
sonal belongings. No one suffered as
each had a suit of clothes to give and
take. Now the potlatch at Hagwilget,
of hysterical glee. "I look so so
perfectly smart. Bob."
"You look iust like a movie cuties
I bet!" snapped my husband as he
banged up the receiver.
I did, I admitted, as I faced myself
in the hand-glass when the barber's
worst was done. I smiled valiantly, to
impress him, however, but 1 couldn't
touch the package of hair he offered
"Please send it." I ordered. I knew

The Rirls flew to meet me with the
exuberance of young and pretty fe
males who are untrammeled by the
bonds of matrimony. I felt that mar
riage was often a grand mistake. For
I couldn't even share a ballet without
having some kind of regret tacked to it.
I danced so madly that morning that
I was commended by the instructor as
well as the girls. Deborah Burns, how
ever, nas eyes that see. When we
stopped for a rest, she whispered:
"You're sorry Jane, dear. I can see it
"Oh Deb. Don't say a single kind

horrid quaver. "If you do I'll cry
and cry. Sympathy breaks me."
So I smiled bravely to the end of the
practice but after the girls had gone,
I shut myself up in my room and had
a magnificent weeping spell, all by my
lone .
I felt sorry that I couldn't have Bob
there- to see me and hear me cry!
It was all his fault, anyway! He
shouldn't have let me do it.
I unwrapped the shining locks he had
pretended to love so much, and
stretched them on top of his chiffonier,
I wanted him to share my mourning.
