Every arrival from that oily, every fashion letter, even the more serious chronicles, speak of the intangible change which has come over the municipal conscience. Ap parently. nothing is changed; yet in the restaurants and hotels the menus ure more appetizing; the diners are gayer; the theaters are fuller and the pieces played there are more interest ing und better mounted. At the opera, at the conferences of fashionable lec turers, at the few concerts, at all the places where society gathers, the same story of better dressing, of increased Interest in clothes and all that per tains to them, of the discreet reap pearance of jewelry, Is told by so many witnesses that we are forced by mere weight of numbers to believe them. Paris itself wonders. Hut make In quiries as to the reason, and after more or loss deliberation you will re ceive from all quarters the same an swer. America is responsible. The American troops are paid on a sçale that would turn a French war ministry white with horror. Hesides. marly of the brand-new officers now wearing Uncle Sam's uniform are men with hank accounts which would he respected even in extravagant New \ork. Put any American with money In ids pocket in Paris, and his im pulse Is to spend it and keep on spending it. Wearing brown clothes and a fiannel shirt isn't going to alter that instinct. It's too deep-seated. The visiting American officer goes to the theater, of course, though un fortunately lie is apt to lie a little deaf in his French ear. But his eyes are keen enough ; and by all accounts, he gets his money's worth optically if not orally. Parisian plays are said to be better and to be more attrac tively costumed than they have been since 1014.

However, we are told that the Parisienne Is feel ing so much happier that she makes one thickness of tulle fulfill official requirements, and the demi-tollette grows more like formul evening dress every week. The deml-tollette, however, is noth ing new to France. There has al ways been o certain popularity for this type of gown in Purls, and worn with a hat. It was often seen at the theater or at restaurant or hotel dinners be fore the war. Paris Again Gay. Some of the recent first nights in Taris have been signalized by the wearing of exceedingly good clothes. This was particularly true of the premiere of Jeanne d'Arc, a work new to Paris, though not to London. "Half toilettes," which were only to he dis tinguished from the ante-bellum eve ning gowns by the aforementioned use of a film of tulle, were worn by all the women ; and many of them appeared in interesting and unusual head dresses. Paris seems to feel the neces sity of headgear with a semi-evening fro(*K ; hence the introduction of nil sorts of amusing arrangements.

In tin- street, the Parish-line still champions the frock and coat, or the "''oat dress." All winter, satin has been a favorite material for outdoor tilings, interlined, of course, for warmth, and simply slathered with fur.

For spring, tin* combination of materials, which seems to please our own de signers and manufacturers equally well, will he featured. There really ought to he few wom en with "the face" to knit in colored wools for their own adornment, in fliese days of crying demands from the army and navy. But the slip-on garment without sleeves lias taken such a hold upon our affections that it is difficult to think of abolishing it altogether. Nor need we do so. Amer ican designers, anxious to serve their soldiers arid sailors in this vital mat ter, have had the cleverness to offer the same type of garment In mate rials of which there is, ut present, iio such pressing need. Vests of flannels, of heavy shan tungs and other rough weaves of silk, even of satin, made almost exuctly like the sweater vest of last summer, have been made up and are being of fered to women whose patriotic inten tion might weaken if these novelties were any less attractive than they are. Jersey, both in wool and silk, is another favorite material for them. Jersey Weaves Taken Up. In fact, jersey weaves have not in the least diminished in popularity. Tin* first wool Jersey woven in this country was rather too reminiscent of Fm-le Josh's red underwear to have a success with fastidious women. But the weave lias greatly improved. As for the silk varieties, there is a heavy sort, of vegetable fiber, which is immensely satisfactory. It is heavy and lustrous and not too stretchable. It hangs in the rich, long folds that cling to the figure and lends itself particularly well to strictly one-piece frocks or coats which hang from the shoulders in an Oriental effect. Such material is never lined, but it is worn over a lining of some sort made espe cially for it. Paris is using tiiis heavy kind for outdoor coats, some of them of the slip-on over the head sort, which have failed to achieve success with its, but which site still fancies. Our hotels, restaurants and houses are still, in spite of threatened coal famine, so wi Il-heafed, for the most part, that v.e have retained our habit of slipping off our outdoor garments at the slightest provocation. The idea of wriggling out of a coat made all in one piece or pulling it over our heads like a sailor hoy taking off his blouse, does not appeal to us; neither does tin* French woman's way of getting it on again, which is simply to make a circle of the garment on the floor and step into the middle of it, pulling it up around her. Here is another reason for the retention of the small hat. Such a feat would he impossible In a big one. Most of the milliners say small hats for spring, for the beginning of spring at any rate. Lewis is reported to have said "toques" very distinctly and to be making them to suit Individual faces, by building them on the head of a client, fold by fold. It must be an interesting operation to watch. Of course, ns long as hats do such things, hairdressing is doomed to remain very much ns at present.

This time his object of attention was the cavity from which lie had recently extracted a tooth. "What are you going to do after I get through?" said the doctor mildly.
