ELLEN USBORN'S LETTER.
Pretty Hat3 frcra Foreign Studies to Ba Worn in Europe. The New Transparent Trlmmlnga Out door Conns fur Uoneral l'o, the Uraai Lincu Critzo and the Ulcycle Girl. copTitinHT, 1S36. The back country JChnrods whom my childhood knew were wont to say they never chased squirrel or fox, butsat still and waited for the poor beasties to come to them. The art, 1 suppose, con sisted in knowing where to sit. The toilet hunter, though the veriest tyro, knows that she has but to sit, pen primed and pencil sharpened, at her win dow in Newport, when the green is at its freshest aud fullest along the avenue, and let the mode come to her, from New York, from Paris, and a little Inter from London, with the season's stamp upon them all. She shall await her willing quarry by the cliff walk on cool fore noons when the surf dashes dazzlingly white on the rocks to eastward of the shore or on the tennis grounds at the Casino, or where the golf ball flies mer rily upward when the blow falls with a thud that is neither dull nor sickening. And she shall see: I think there is as much to interest her in the summer millinery as in any thing. The substantial tulle trimming of the spring is giving way to or de veloping into the use of the so-called transparent effects. Where the veiling hud once some substance it has become the filmiest gauze, Mnlincs tulle, horse hair lace or other filmy stuff instinct with color yet not conceuling what it covers. The favorite color for morning walks or lawn use for general ull- 'round purposes, I should say is green. 1 One con do no better than a hat in leaf- green braid with beef-enter crown about ; two inches high, a fairly wide brim ! and bedeekments of lustrous green I gauze with huge plumes. J Yet if one is to have many hats, for t pia.za wear or later summer use when tha heat has grown, some of them will j be white, black or straw color, both in substance and in trimming. As the lend ers in fashion strive rather to have many hats appropriate to many occa sions than to squander much money on any one. it is made easier for the women of moderate means to have u general purpose hat or two as good ns anyone's. , BUMMER HATS SEEN ON NEWPORT'S LEAFY AVENUE. We might cull examples from the gar den of gay headgear in the waking New port. We shnll find nil the French de signs moderately brimmed, so let a soli tary British specimen, broad of brim, black in color, piled high with plumes, held down by a dotted veil and decked with a bunch of tiny red roses, lead the way. There are prettier shapes to fol low. Such, for instance, as a French design, n cornflower blue straw, trimnir-d with a large filk bow of the same, with a plaiting of sheer leaf-green tulip, at the left embracing a bunch of lilies of the valley; at the back a enche-peigne of more tulle and lilies. Or a toque of moss-green s. .tin straw, whose quilled brim is adorned on the side with yellow pop-iies and lilies of the valley, v. Imse odd tarn-shaped low crown is mi riu Hinted I) v two i)eacock-bliir wings which .laHped with a jet ornament, bc-nri-r liii'li Unvs of green and hind which peer hiirh bows of green and Or a bonnet made nil of nightshade blooms, whit pink iind velvet, with light foliage and bows of cream Valen ciennes, one of which on the left, rises above its fellows, proud in its eminence. Simpler and not less pretty is a shnde hat of coarse g-een straw with a garland of daisies on the brim, two big poppies in front nd a spray of narcissus be hind which peer high bowsof green nnd n grenadier shape, with a red sotin bow, a rliiiic.stone liuekle and a few daisies. Another simple siinde hat is in blae.k straw trimmed with red and purple, poppies, -i black paradise aigrette and muslin m jwle blut, cream and water green. These paradise nigrettes, by the way, are sparingly employed in I'uris milli nery. Similar effects m curled feathers ore displayed on London hats in fright ful profusion. Tak a wide stnw hat, nearly flat of brim and let two huge plumes curve outward on cither side, scimitar fashion, and droop like weep ing willow boughs below the ears, and you have a hat less beautiful than gro tesque. It is the custom to roil at the follies of fashion, but into all her follies women will no longer be lured, else the simple gown of skirt, blouse and coat would be less common. These combina tions arc made in every kind of mate rial now, and in linen, canvas or sack ing are cool and summery. The sack' ing gowns nre very pretty when made up in green or blue, nnd trimmed with white braid. The all-white outing gown is perhaps the prettiest of all, but is hardly to be recommended to the wom an of limited means. It is too liable to stains kind Occidents. Some of the prettiest outing gowns I have seen have been made of mixed wool goods In cream tints generally, but with blotches of red showing at intervals. This il peculiarly adapted to brunette wearers. There is a wilderness to choose from of thin, summery materials, like organ dies with lace trimmings, mulls, batistes and linens. The batistes are usually embroidered. As for the grass linens, pride goeth before a fall; their univer sal use to-day threatens disuse soon. Still, they cannot help Insiiug through the summer, with all their popularity of to-day. Somehow, when a Woman has swathed herself in thin grass linen through which gleams the. silken lin ing and hns muffled her hat in even more flimsy gauze, she looks like a tatuf in a deserted house in summer, wrapped in netting to keep the flies off. The woman who wears a "dickey," :i high starched collar and a man's tie, ! still In evidence, but she is beginning to wilt in the summer heat and to won der if such nrdor is worthy of celestial minds. This year is very dangerous for the woman with a dickey. Ths sud- t'en popularity of extremely thin and Hoft materials is bowling her out. And may she be unregretted! Yet I have seen bicycle costumes made fjuite in the starchy way not many, to le sure, In Newport one sees no bloom' el's, except on the fleeting forms of transient visitors. One such swept through yesterday. She had rather Hose-fitting kneebreeches, was tightly corseted nnd wore outside Ihe starched torments a close-fitting coat with long tails like a man's dress coat. She was not much admired. The prettiest cycle gown here yet is. a short skirt in gray with blobs of red in the weave, a jacket with full sleeves i.tid basque skirts fated along the Japels with dull red. This is worn over ii pale pink waist, with a torn cap above i.U. Another suit is snge green with very light yellow facings worn over a light green siik waist. Another, leaf green with white faced lapels edged with em broidery, (ireen shows the dust ter ribly. There is much this year of foulard hilks brown with ivory designs and in other combinations. KLLFTC OSBOHN. DRESSING! THE HAIR. A Medley of Graceful and Ileoomlna ColffurcH. It has finally come to pass that in the matter of the coiffure few intelligent cultivated women follow any universal mode or iron rule In the arrangement of their hair to suit the features of 9 their friends or neighbors, but in ac- cordunce with their own particular cast of countenance and their individual fancy. As a result one notices at any fasionnble evening gathering a medley of graceful nnd becoming styles of coiffure that not infrequently are quite an artistic study. The compact lustrous braided coil at the back of the head is popular with many, especially women who elect for the trim princesse or the open-back poke bonnets. There are high-rolled coiffures in pompadour, Josephine and Medici styles, with or without the full puffs above the roll; bow-knots on th; tides, or nt the top of the head in the back, with glittering diamond or paste pins thrust in here r.nd there; low, broad IZussinn coiffures with hair in deep waves over the brow nnd sides of the head; (5 reek knots with classic Ill lets of narrow gold or silver set with tiny gems, to bind down the ripples of hair a very special style seldom to be ventured upon; braids a la chatelnine caught up with a large Alsatian bow or hair ornament; the Clyde style, with a few short, airy curls bound with n soft braid of hair in the center of the head, or in the nape of the neck, as proves most becoming. There is, like wise, the Naomi coiffure, in which a length of abundant hair is lightly braided and coiled round and round the crown of the head like a fluffy aureole and fixed with tiny gem-set pins. There are other arrangements, com bining tresses knotted, braided nnd waves, giving the effect of a great wealth of woman's crowning glory, or severe coiffures adjusted with plain, rich tortoise-shell pins, Spanish styles, also with the inevitable high-back comb us a finishing touch, and coiffures in unique modes of the ultrn-English or der, the hair parted in the center and minus puff, wave or ornament; and, lastly, the short-cut style, curling all over the head, and parted on the left, with little side-combsto hold the rings of hair in place above the temples. N. Y. Tost. The Latent Toe, The "never-toucli-the-8idewalk-toe" is the latest in the shoe line, stales a writer on footwear. The sole of this Recimen has an upward turn of the toe which keeps that particular part off the ground. The arrangement, it is claimed, Is a necessity on account of the extreme length of this new Inst, which would probnbly cause the wearer of this shoe to stub his toe unless this provision wns made to prevent it.
