Th shirt waist movement for men folk Is attracting a vast deal of attention everywhere, and as we are rather important adjuncts in oar own estimation at least, and obliged to accompany them in their various amusements, and also to help bear the brant of the criticism levied at their unfortunate heads. I think it hish time to say a word or two oa the subject. It seems to be a fashion rather -well favored here. Judging "by the coatless young men I see constantly on the business streets. "We eeem to have stolen a march on the other cities in that respect. It Is not often that we can be quoted as being before the times, but such Is the case regarding the shirt waist at least. I do not see why the men should not be comfortable as well as-ourselves. I wonder how far Hono lulu will carry out this new fad. In the evening it would be a bit odd If a coatless man should appear at our dinner table, and how strange a theater would look with rows of young men and old In their shirt waists. I think that some young men and perhaps older ones will take to this new fad for that's all It is rather too easily, and become even more careless than ever regarding their personal appearance. One surely ought to be comfortable, In the tropics at least, and I wish our men would adopt some style of dress that would conform to the climate, for the dress coat and stiff shirt must be a trifle warm, to say the least, and it is certainly ugly. The genius who will evolve this will not only receive a fortune, but the thanks of all womankind. For those who will not be among the first to accept bare throat finish to high neck gowns there are made transparent choker collars of lace or net at the edge is tied a band of black velvet or some bright touch of color. Some such addition is necessary, else the transparent collar would seem to thicken the neck unduly. Then there are wire collar frames to set in a no-collar gown and hold up a lace scarf. "When the scarf is in place in stock fashion about the neck the frame does not show. Neither the bare throat or no-collar finish is necessary. Bodices prepared with collars of conventional sorU are as stylish as ever. On two new dresses of the latest models I have seen recently the neck finish was not in the least And there , are hosts line them in this respect. Another dress was of a red challie figured in pale yellow. The skirt, yoke and lower part of the bodice were yellow satin covered with black lace and banded with black ribbon. The ribbon also edged the sailor collar, which collar and V of the satin. The midway section of lace-covered satin was the gown's striking feature. For this there is full fashionable inducement, but only for a very tall woman. Short folk should avoid such sectional devices as they would the plague. Another dress was of the jaunty tailor-made ducks. Turquoise blue was its color, and the trimmings were bands and upper turn-down collar of white pique. These suits are as Jaunty and handsome as broadcloth tailor suits, if only they are carefully made; but and hero's the rub the making costs just as much. Happily a woman whose figure is not hard to fit can in these days send away and secure satisfactory suits from tailors whose charges are within reason. The bolero designs are novel and more numerous. The smartest one was recently worn over- a brown foulard stamped upon a cream ground. This little bolero was made of batiste and lace cunningly used in combination and fitted to the figure at top and bottom. It was a front bolero only and was held by narrow black velvet straps over the shoulders. Narrow black satin ribbons are extensively used and with good results. A charm ing arrangement requires yards and yards of ribbon. The belt, which is so arranged as to be attached to a broad satin piece in the middle of the back, consists of narrow bands of the ribbon. This is formed by covering a piece of well boned crinoline with black satin. The strip, which is not more than three inches wide, is placed up and down in the middle of the back, and ail brought around to the front, and to each side of it the ribbons are attached. Four or five ribbons start in this way in the middle of the back and are brought again to the front, where they are tied in a bow with long ends. Narrow black ribbons are attached to the back of the hat and all crossed, after which they are brought around to the front and tied under the chin. The bow is fastened by a- brooch in good old-fashioned style. Shirt yokes are tucked and shirred and the goods are trimmed in other ways. Unless on is very full around the hips, the trimmed yoke is to be recommended, but for embonpoint it should be avoided. Tulle of all colors can be used for the boa. The 'latest design is the snake boa, which is very thick at on end and tapering at the other. "To give these boas foundation there is a lining similar to the lining of a muff, over which the material is shirred. To fashion such a lining a tiny roll of cotton batting Is prepared until it is of equal thickness, except at one end; where it is tightly sewed to give itAJje desired point A black silk .case IsT slipped over the bom, reminding one of the way a bolster is slipped into its case. The boa Is bow ready for its outside covering, which may be of amy selected material, with a preference always for black tulle or black chtffoa. The most beaatlful boas are of black tulle with gold dots put on in-such a way as to require a Tery close, talcs; sairrlBS.

The Terr newest Ccha of this fon Is gathered around the shoulder? and brought is a big soft fold to tSe front, where it is tied in a knot. Below this the ends disappear underneath the lapels of the vest, but reappear below the waist line, where they kang In very losg, fell streamers, asd trimmed upon the end3 with lace. The Scha is lace-trimmed and very soft and pretty. The lace undersleeve is seen in many quaint ways. As a revival it is ex tremely popular and used in the form of a gathered caff, extending below the sleeve of the gown. French thrift bere acain finds ex- I presslon. A gown made for an Amerl- rcan woman had sleeves only a little below the elbow, and of a decidedly bell shape. "When the American woman saw this she exclaimed: "But my arms are thin; I do not like such, short .sleeves." "These are the lace sleeves, responded the conturiere. "The dress sleeve is built so as to be worn either short or long." Some of the new undersleeves are entirely of lace: othrs are lawn with a tiny lace edging, and very pretty this edge is, with its soft fullness arranged to set off the hand. I am told that while the tide of travel is toward Paris, and not away from it, still there are many who are escaping to the cooler countries. Russia, especially, is enjoying Its fashionable season. The Czar and Czarina rft holding receptions and many Americans are being received. The court dress Is by no means so rigidly prescribed as the English presentation dress, but is none the less elegant Many handsome summer gowns are being sent north, and whole cargoes of pretty things for the neck are sent to the Russian tailors, who are severe in their styles and lacking in taste in the soft, fluffy ornaments of which the Paris modistes are so fond. Although so much has been said about the marriage of Lady Randolph Churchill and Lieutenant "West, I do not think it is generally known that English society in general accepts the match with great interest and pleasure. The petty jealousies of a few cannot affect the whole, and Lady Randolph is one of the most famous of living women; she is distinctly great in separate spheres of activity. Lieutenant West, on the other hand, has his spur3 to win. Only twenty-eight, he has fought in one campaign and been wounded; he has also served In the Queen's army in a civil capacity in times of peace. Besides this he has been honored by the Prince for important diplomatic duty. But beyond these things he has nothing of which to boaBt, unless it be having won the hand of a great and beautiful woman. I am told that society was more than surprised at the engagement, for the reason that young West wai much the junior of her ladyship and had always been the intimate friend and playmate of the boys; and also because of the fact that there was no love lost between Mrs. Cornwallis "West, mother of the young man, and Lady Churchill. In the olddays when both were brides there had been serious rivalry hetween them, both being "the most beautiful woman in England." Later they had some friction in the matter of social precedence. What then was the chagrin of Lady Cornwallis West to think that Lady Randolph Churchill, her former rival, would call her mother-in-law. On getting a wife like Lady Randolph young West is to be congratulated. Yet so Is she, for that matter, say the gossips, for no finer young man lives in a England, nor one with more promise. hit The reception given by Mrs. Cornelias Damon for Mr. and Mrs. Beck-with was easily the event of the week. The house was beautifully decorated and the evening most enjoyable. It was also a house-warming, for it was thet first large affair Mrs.- Damon has given since opening her new house on Thurston avenue. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Neumann gave a dinner at The Grill, in honor of their absent son Edward's birthday. The guests were Mr. and Mrs. Hasson, Mr. and Mrs. Surh, Miss Finch and Mr. Folke. Card parties are again on the tapis, so a little bird whispered, and I heard one woman bitterly complaining of her bankrupt state, in tones that could bo heard from here to the Pali. The 'ble dlme'is again exchanging hands. Mrs. Swanzy has as guests at her ranch at Kuooloa over-Sunday Mr. and Mrs, Hatch, Mrs. Maxwell and Mr. and Irs. A-'G. Hawes, Jr. It Is becoming more and more fashionable in Honolulu to have places out of town, and It is so easy to make up fhouse' parties on short notice, and such a pleasure to spend a day or two on the other side of the Island. Mrs. Noonan. did not return from of the volcano, as was expected. The new French consul is a decided acquisition to Honolulu society. He speaks excellent English and is a thorough man of the world, besides most iateresting and entertaining. Mrs. F. K. C. Gibbons left for England last week after a lengths vLsit here. The Chilean trailing ship did not entertain at all during her brief stay here, coatrary to all expectations.

And flowers know it, too. Tou have often heard a person ay, "Everything she touches grows for her," while others complain, "I -an never make a success of my garden or my window-boxes." To be sure, there la a good deal in the faithful watering and sunning of seeds and plants, but the reason for things growing goes further back: than that. It rests ultimately on a personal love for nature. A real flower lover will never let any plant in her care grow thirsty. She will never give a plant so much moisture that it is soggy and uncomfortable. She will never pick a bouquet in which the colors are totally i ous. For example, she will never make f - . nAAA tw. Via,, . tililn cnrlpfr t wutttvtci -"- " ;-- ences of all the flowers she undertakes to cultivate. j She will recognize msuncuvely what families of flowers like to be put o- gether when they are plucked. She will make bouquets that aro loose and graceful and natural. Moreover she will always put some of the leaves of a flower with it in the vase. And that is one of the crowning differences between u man and a woman. Haven't you ever noticed it? Set them both to work at the same time in garden or field, gathering flowers for your house. I .will lay you a wager that the man comes back to you without a bit of green in his hands besides that which naturally comes off with the flower he picks. But the woman, who is wise, will .have laid in a little stock of leaves and vines to go with every different kind of flower. For she well knows that the green will set off to advantage as nothing else can the color and the textare and management of her blossoms. Former Mistresses Of the White House. Some Notably Beautiful, Talented and Socially Clever First Ladies of the Land. Of mistresses of the White House one of the most popular was Mrs. James K. Eolk. Like Mrs. Cleveland, she was a brunette and of fine it was often remarked that not crowned head in Europe could quesn more royally than tlie wife of the republican president. Poets penned verses in her honor, and on the last Sunday of her stay in Washington a clergyman addressed her from the pulpit She was treated with great dis tinction and after leaving the White House was visited every New Year's by the legislature in a body. Mrs. George Washington also had dark hazel eyes and brown hair. She was not a beauty, but sha had a good form, rather below middle weight, and her manners, were frank and engaging. She dressed plainly, and at a ball given in her honor she wjora a slnipla russet gown and white Jiankderchief about her neck. One of her dresses, which she herself manufactured, of cotton, striped with silk, whicn she obtained from ravelings of brown silk stockings and old crimson chair covers. Mrs. Monroe was considered a She was tall and gracefuUy formed, polished and attractive in society. Mrs. John Adams was never beautiful, but -she was of imposing appearance and Intellectual. Mrs. John Quincy Adams was famed for her charming manners, and Mrs. Andrew Jackson for her amiable temper and kind heart. Mrs. Martin Van Buren, who died before her husband became president was a pretry with modest, unassuming manners and gentle disposition. The first Mrs. Tyler was one of the belles of eastern Virginia and was most attractive in "her striking loveliness person and character. The" second Mrs. Tyler was the first woman -to marry a president Before her marriage she was, for the one season she spent there, the belle of Washington. A sparkling brunette was Mrs. William Henry Harrison. She was very handsome, with a face full of animation, and her health, which was robust, added a glow to her fea teres which Increased her charms. "Upon her- countenance," it is recorded, ''nature had been profusely .libera!' Mrs. Thomas Jefferson was remarkable for her beauty. Her complexion was brilliant; her large, expressive eyes of "the richest tinge of iubdrn." little above medium height she ws slightly and delicately formed. She danced, sang, played the splocet and harpsichord and rode with great skilL Mrs. J&ccas was a prstiy, cuxoza woman, wita a. smile ana a pleasant word for every one.

My to tnat rime there had been a Bible i there and little more. Another woman of rare beauty was Mrs. Franklin Pierce. She also had many accomplishments. She was very refined and quiet, shunning society. Mrs. Abraham Lincoln as a girl was very attractive and she had many suitors. When she became the mistress of the White House she was -fair and forty." That she was the successor of the popular and accomplished Miss Lane was not a point in her favor. At the first levee she appeared in a pink silk, decollete, short-sleeved dress and a floral headdress which ran down to her waist and destroyed what comeliness simplicity might have given her. Mrs. Andrew Jackson possessed .he beauty of face and form which rendered her mother one of the most beautiful of women. Mrs. Grant was a blonde, of delicate figure, rather below middle stature.
