TVe car write our letters and send out invita tlons, for there will be. so I under stand, an up-to-date messenger girl for that purpose solely. After a while breakfast will be served. French fashion, and altogether the thing ought it be a success. Other cities have dem onstrated the fact of its usefulness and I do not see why a club of thl? sort should not succeed here. I sup pose the future will decide that quer tion for It may be only a dream, but should It materialize a long felt want would be supplied. - The report comes from Paris that skirts will be shortened, but it has not been verified yet. Probably the tailor gown for street wear is of r. more sensible length, just touching the ground, but everything in the way of ? dressy costume, whatever the material may be, has a long, full skirt, which means that it is full around the feet, but plain and close fitting around the hips. The Parisian as well as the American women refuse to adopt the new model, with plaits around the hips, and their combined wisdom ought to dispatch this variety in an effectual manner. Women have come to value natural lines as never before, and just at the moment anything that interferes with this much-prized advantage Is not to be considered very seriously. The dress designers may add all the fullness they like below the apparent hip line, but the hips must be quite plain, or if any tucks or plaits are used they must be very carefully stitched down to preserve the outline of the figure. Cloths in the pale, delicate tints have renewed their popularity this season, and while pale, dull blue and pink, which resemble the blotting paper tint, are both fashionable, the soft tones of beige have the lead. Golden browns, warm and rich in coloring; gray greens, blues, with a tinge of ooth gray and green in the mixture, and reads in the soft, dull poppy and rose shades, which have a rich purple tint, are the prevailing colors for street wear. There are many pretty mixtures in rough materials besides wool, cotton and silk velvets, the last of which is very much employed for entire gowns. One rather effective model in the dull pink cloth has an underskirt with a flounce at the front of satin and foulard In the same shade, but spotted wjth white. The upper skirt is scalloped all around and up the front, where it is open and edged with pink braid, threaded with gold. The bodice, a short scalloped bolero, falls over an under vest of the foulard, also forming the unuer sleeves, and the rather wide belt is of black velvet. The mode of using an underskirt of silk is a very useful one for renovating old gowns, wen more material is needed. A street costume of stone gray cloth is trimmed with stitched bands and collar and cuffs of black velvet. Another model with a bolero jacket is carried out in powder-blue zibeline, the skirt finished in three shaped flounces, piped with black satin and silver braid. The yoke and vest are all of black panne, across which silk cords fasten in military style. Hip yokes of various widths and kinds are one of the season's features in skirts, and the material is sometimes box plaited below this. The bodice, also box plaited. has a yoke of twisted taffeta, a lace bertha over which the box plaits extend, a black, velvet ribbon cravat with gold ferrets on the end, and wrist bands of gold embroidered cloth are the finish. One of the prettiest costumes of the season is in pale beige, the skirt with a deep plaited flounce being an especially becoming model. The front is quite plain with the exception of a box plait prettily stitched dovn, and the back has a similar box plait which flows into the fullness of tho flounce at the back. The top of the skirt is the pretty circular cut so much liked. Fancy braid heads the flounce, hut stitched bands may be used in its place. The double collars are made of cloth, one trimmed with braid -and thfs other with velvet, and the vest ts of wnite velvet, trimmed with blacs and white velvet bands. A tucked shirt is the feature of another cloth gown. which is cut in panels joined by an open work stitch. Some of the new winter hats look like the summer models reversed. They come down low and fiat over the forehead, with a mass of trimmings at the back. Very long, narrow buckles of gold and steel, or a mixture rf both, are seen everywhere on every kind of shape, and some of them are,so long that ti&y. are put through the center of a bow and extend over on the crown at the back. Again they are used as a bandeau and with a little drapery serve to raise the hat at one side. Very pretty hats are made with either prims or crowns of fur. Gun metal, which has been very-fashionable for men's wear, makes its appearance this season, in eTery variety of trinket for woman's adorn ment and "use. In buckles for garters It is especially smart, the designs plain, with one white diamond set Irregularly in the surface. Cigarette cases, designed for leminine ownership, are also made of this jnetalsorae of them ornamented with gems, while have little hunting medallions in color set in most effectively. The mere ownership of a cigarette case does not necessarily indicate that the qwner smokes, bet it is considered the correct thing to have one, and one fashionable firm is enjoying a rushing I trade in the sale of these cases. The girls just from school and sot yet ost of the type generally- known as the aatjnee girl, are most addicted to these fads. One of the large candy shops on Broadway, in Xew York, has a blonde and olue eyed customer who calls every afternoon and presenting a pretty silver cigarette case, gravely orders it filled with chocolate cigarettes. Gun metal In combination with the newand leautifui turquoise matrix is a wonderfully effective contrast. A meshed purse of the black, lustreless metal with a. huge matrix set in the iop is suspended from the neck by a chain also of the metal and set with small blue stones. la belt buckles the combination is also seen, some of the vast cuirass clasps, which are con structed with a new to accent the prevailing straight front effect, being set thickly with the new stones In Moorish designs. The gun metal and new turquoise trinkets cost more than gold and gems, and they are strictly the newest down to date. The variety in neckwear has in creased astonishingly with the impetus which gold has given to this special oranch of fashion. Gold braid and black velvet from some of the most serviceable stocks, the velvet bias and finishing around the edge with a fine gold braid forming the cravat with n knot in front. Inch-wide gold braid $c carried around above this, and then there are folds of velvet with more fine braid. Transparent stocks are made of guipure lace stripped around In various ways with narrow bands ci velvet ribbon either colored or black, dotted along the the edges with gold beads. The ribbon forms a bow and ends iu front and is decorated with beads in the same manner. Gold gauze over white chiffon is a pretty foundation for this sort of stock. White chiffon stocks are trimmed with gold braid between the folds, and little turn over -joints of gold embroidery and the era vat, which is the crowning finish of ill stocks, may be of black velvet edged with gold and the indispensable ferrets on the ends. Mr. Addison Mizner is certainly do ing a good work at the Executive building. The paintings were in a bad condition, and it is fortunate that they were rescued from entire destruction before too late. It would be a good plan to have the names beneath the portraits at least, for so few seem to know them. In a few years only two or three persons on the islands will know them. As it is, I think Governor Cleghorn Is the only one who can name them correctly. Mrs. Andrew Fuller gave a small tea on Friday in honor of Mrs. Gay. Mrs. Widdifield and Mrs. Vida had a narrow escape from death last Saturday, owing to the shocking careless ness of the persons in charge of the excavation near King street. They were driving and the horse was suddenly startled by a terrific blast Fortunately the horse kicked himself free and the two ladies escaped severe injuries, although thrown violently tc the ground. Mr. and Mrs. William Haywood leave by the next Zealandia for Washlngtoa, where they will make their home for some time to come. Their absence will be much regretted, for they have made warm friends here and entertained royally. They will live very quietly in Washington, owing to" the death of Mrs. Haywood's mother. Their homo in Washington is one of the handsomest places in that beautiful city oi charming houses. There is one tram-driver at least who is kind and considerate to his mules. On the Waikiki branch one day I saw the driver descend from the tram to the roadside and pick a good handful of grass for his tired mules, while waiting on the switch. This act of kindness was hungrily appreciated, and I could not but remark on the unusual occurrence. I am sure the over driven and over beaten mules, by drivers, would protest if they could and I think it the duty of every one to do all in their "power T.o protect these poor animals from the shameful abuse they are subjected to by cruel drivers. The society women in all the large cities are taking up the subject of cruelty to animals with renewed vigor. The San Francisco News Letter says: According to society gossip Miss McNutt's marriage to Lieutenant Pother will take place in Honolulu; that is, if the groom-elect should be found there; otherwise the party will proceed to Manila. Mrs. Martin and Mr. Goad will only accompany them as far as Japan, where she and her brother propose remaining for some time. Mr. James B. Castle, accompanied by Mrs. White, sister-in-law of Mrs. Castle, arrived on the China. Mr. Castle has been very ill and looks far from well. ilrs. White is a most love ly singer. Mr. White, with his son have, been visiting Mrs. Castle for some time. The UVhltes wiu occupy the Harrison place at 'Waikiki for the winter. Mr. and Mrs. William G. Irwin, who are at the Hotel Richelieu in San" Francisco for the winter, are being extensively entertained. They say Mrs. Irwin looks handsomer than ever. Mrs. "W. C. Parke and family returned on the China, after a long and delightful visit in the States. The plans for the Pacific Heights residence are already drawn and the work" of will begin at once. There were a great many Informal dinner parties on Thanksgiving night and afterward; many society people Continued on Sixth Page.
