Why, I wonder, will women fool
ishly persist in rushing a season-par
ticularly southern women, in a south.
ern clime, who surely should be guided
by the temperature and not the al
manac in their manner of dressing?
The thermometer may be doing bus
iness along good old summer-time
lines, and the sun blazing like a fur
nace in full blast against a white-hot
sky, but when Dame Fashion and the
almanac proclaim the advent of fall,
the decree is irrevocable so far as
women-kind are concerned, and it's
away with summer frills and furbe
lows, sheer lingeries and cool linens,
airy millinery and frivolous foot
wear, and on with warm-looking coat
suits, sober-hued voiles, be-plumed
hats and kid gloves that reach from
here to yonder! The demon spirit
Change doesn't by any means dwell
in the breast of man alone. Women
may be more steadfast in their soul
affections, but when it comes to a
question of their personal adornment,
note the hysteric haste with which
they abandon one season's fineries for
another, and their mad rush to sieze
upon the first-of-the-season bargains
that the shops have to offer. Wide,
straight-brimmed silk hats smothered
in coque feathers seem to be the ac
cepted style of headgear for fall wear,
and for downright lack of grace and
individuality they cannot be surpassed.
"Do you know what those hats look
like to me?" said a benighted Man
Thing who dpesn't read the fashion
magazines and so has no way of gaug
ing beauty save by the evidence of his
eyes. "They look like extra wide pie
plates, smeared over with glue, and
then a whole lot of feathers dumped
over 'em at random!" And believe
me, that's an amazingly fine descrip
tion of them. All the shops are show
ing nifty suits in voile, aeolian and
other light-weight materials, either
with the -fitted hip-length coats, or
dressy waists with all-over lace yoke
effects and three-quarter-length sleeves
fashioned of dainty lace ruffles. Wide
shoulder and long waist effects have
been relegated to the past, and the
round length skirt is being looked
upon with far less favor than for
merly. The smart tailored waists
with the onn,,ntrt.ih sA~it i.., ,-.ft rºr
"fluffy ruffles" so much in vogue are
among the newest and prettiest of
early fall styles. Green, blue and
lavender-the last named shade rang
ing in all tones from royal purple to
the faintest heliotrope-promise to be
the season's favorites in colors.
This is the order I overheard a
hurried drummer give to a waiter
whom he knew in a down-town restau
rant a day or two ago: "Two eyes
up to Almighty God and a stack of
yellows;.... quick, Fritz!" The waiter
said "Sure, sir!" with an alacrity
that betokened his knowledge of the
forthcoming tip, and disappeared to
return presently with a brace of eggs
fried on one side and a plate of po
tato chips. And thus was the meaning
of that passing strange order made
clear to my groping intelligence.
At a little bridge party a few eve
nings ago I chanced to get at a table
with a nice, stupid Englishman. In
one of the deals he had the bad luck
to hold a "yarborough," which, as
every bridge player knows, is a hand
innocent of ace or face card. "Er
what's the jolly German name one
calls one's hand when one holds noth
ing higher than a ten-spot?" he asked.
"Raus mit 'em!" I replied flippantly.
"Haw-haw! to be suab," he drawled
with what I took to be a recognition
of my feeble jest. But nay-not he!
A few moments later I overheard him
say to his partner at the next table to
which he had progressed: "I can't
help you a bit this time, partner; I
have one of those bally raus mit 'em
