New York, Dec. 1G:—Clouds aren't the only things that have silver lin ings these days. No Indeed, not if you have noticod the shiny new lin gerie. Made of cloth of gold and cloth of silver it is and if yoa own an under bodice or a combination of this precious sheen you can feel pos itively that you are up to the last scratch of Fashion. And you proba bly do too. Petticoats of these shim mering fabrics are dreams of moon beams and sunbeams elaborately in crusted with gold and silver lace as well. In days of old kings thought they were going some when they donned suits of gold and silver ar mour but fashion's queens have cer tainly gone a few steps further today when they affect lingerie d'or and d'argent. Entire gowns for evening wear of these precious metalixed fabrics are as beautiful as they are popular and Mary Nash in "The Man Who Came Back" is showing a stunning example of a silver cloth one inset vsith silver lace. Cloth of gold and cloth of silver slippers have of course become al most too common for words and are bound soon to be only worn by the poor and pasa considering the con stantly soaring price of calf skin. Hats, large and cartwhcelish, of gold and silver lace are much in evi dence on heads that show also a sus piciously copper glint. For you real ly have to be on your metal these days and have the metal on you even if it means resorting to the help of henna. Boudoir caps of gold and silver lace and gold and silver tissue also prove that not only plumbing, radia tors, munitions and machines may boast metal caps. Alas, however, they don't act quite the same way and a tired and tem permental lady may never hope to let off steam simply by doffing her boudoir cap of gold. All gold and silver cloth evening wraps with cape collars and cuffs of fur are gorgeous enough to make King Henry the Eighth and his fam ous Field of the Cloth of Gold look ITTike a piker. Fairy fans of gold and silver gauze land gold and silver cobweb lace flut ter and twinkle under the artificial lights like ho many silvery dewdrops or golden fireflies. J One particularly bright, shining ' anc* novel fan I discovered in an ar-xj |j listio new shop the other day. I* is of humble paper origin but all beau tifully covered with gold leaf. Mick* and all. A Chinese hieroglyphic done In a bright blue, green and purple , breaks the golden monotony of one of its folds and dangling from it* sticks is a silken cord of matching? j color gay with beads and finished with a festive Chinese tassel or a handy finger ring of jade wherewith to anchor its fluttering beauty ready to its fair owner's hand. The new oriental Medieval and Byzantine tea gowns and negligees ithat now have such a royal vogue are j of course replete with gold and silvejf tissues, laces and galloons. I Because of these present predion* : fabrics, these many metalized modee^ 'divers are the poor swains who go questing the golden girl a 1& Richard I Le Galienne who are bound to be j stung. They will find seeming golden girls on every hand and silver queen* j as well. But let them beware and ι remember that a gold wash and a sil* ver plate has a time limit of wear. ΙΛ I the majority of cases the twenty-two carat finish is only gown and lingerie I deep, the golden or the copper trees : has a henna or peroxide base and i base deceit it is. Let the wary wooe* be not dazzled by the outer shell but let him first test his precious pet in j the crucible of love and find if hep heart be of gold as well and if Eh# (has a sterling character. ΓΙ FIGHTS FOR ENGLAND FOR 15 YEARS^ STILL AN ALIEN London, Dec. IS—Otto Silvester, alt American, former rough rider In Buf falo Bill's shows, and British army veteran of more than fifteen ycal* aervice was registered here today a· inn alien dvplte bis heroic service in I three wers. The same court that or· I dered the American adventurer to register, also held him to be re-exam» ined for military service. Silvester suffered three serioue wounds, numerous minor Injuries and temporary blindness while fighting «■ the western front. After being wound ed In the head at La Basse he spent many weeks in a hospital, but wae discharged in time to go into artioa et Neuve Chapelle. In a battle there the former cowboy was hit In right , arm and left shoulder and blinded t»X an explosion. Discharged and sent back to En®· land Silvester recovered his sight and gradually regained his strength xufll* clently yj work on munitions in on· of the big plants some distance from London. But a fellow workman, be came suspicious of the ex-soldier and asked the authorities why he was not registered as an lieu. Silvester wae promptly summoned. Silvester's daring exploits recorded to his credit in the annals of up Western Front scarcely exceed hifl achievements during the South Afit· can war. It was Silvester who car· ried the dispatch that meant life or death, from beleaguered Ladysmlth te General utler at Colenso. And rid· ing with the head of the retlAf; umn, the same Yank wa first to re-enter thctrrfflfU^Q^· same campaign he was woundes* ιρτ the flgiitinif at Nicholson's Neck, baft he still had enough scrap in his in&k* up to go through a number of dôf· perate battles on the Indian frontitrv Th* medical examiners will décidé whether the "alien" is fit for furtheC military service. Saving the Family. One evening jtist before Christina^ acording to the Photo-Play Magasin^ a moving-picture house in a small South Texas town placed a Red «'rosi Christmas Seal on every ticket soldL A little negro boy noticed the red seal on his pasteboard and went back to the ticket window to ask what it was for. "That's to help kill out coneump* tion," explained the girl behind th# window. The boy rolled up his eyes thought· fully and moved away. He was back In a moment and handed the cashier two more dimes. "Gimme two more tickets," he said· "We all got it at home." "See How That Corn Gomes Clear Off!" "GETS-IT" Loosen· Your Corna Bight Off If ι the Modern Corn Wonder-Sever Valla.
