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
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;

The Terr newest Ccha of this

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
"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

Women That Flowers Lore.
Some people were never intended to
have anything to do with flowers. 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.

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,

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

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."

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
