Cardinal f. ^Gibbons has denounced state-wide prohibition, now np before the Maryland legislature, asserting that such ^law is'impossible, of enforcement. "I am strongly opposed," said the Cardinal, "to any state-wide prohibition bill being passed by the legi&latpre because I believe that such a ' 'Jaw is impossible of enforcement in m city the size of Baltimore and?its |:^aipftt<aa.

Narrow vamps and recede toes are incorporated in the most popular models. A novelty extreme is the Crinoline shoo, which comes in dull leather, patent leather, or kid, with elastic sides and straight, which fastens all around the top of the hoot. A green glazed high boot for those who like the extraordinary in footwear is laced with green ribbons and reaches high enough to meet the short skirt Low shoes with single, double or triple straps often in combination of two colors, such as black patent leather with colored suede, or black kid with white or colored kid, with the vamp and front half of the top of a lighter leather, while the heel and counter-straps are black, are featured. If the shoe is of one color, ft may have piping of a different tone. Perforations and slashes underlaid in color are noted in the fanciful styles.* An oddity of the moment is the bracelet slipper, which is high at the back like the laced sandal, but has a strap of leather in place of ribbon laces, wnich pass around the leg above the ankle. A low shoe with toe in1 castor kid and back quarter and heel in black has the vamp ornamented with narrow band of dull kid cut in points.

These straps are embroidered with gold thread at tne top, and the lower part of the strap is ornamented with silk and fringe. Cross-strap dancing pumps in gold, silver and all colors of satin have three cross-straps and the back vamp of velvet. Gold and silver brocades, or black with metal brocades, are chosen for evening slippers with sandal straps of plain gold or silver clotln.

In nearly every instance the hosiery matches either the shoe or the costume. Black and white effects, different shades of gray, flesh pink, and all neutral shades are good. The stockings for sports' wear, made to mabch the sweater, arc considered quite the correct thing to wear. Drop stitches, ribbed effects, round-about stripes, woven plaids, selfclocking and self-embroidery are noted on the hosiery counter. White hosiery syill be better than ever. Possibly the vogue for white shoes accounts for this. Stockings in open and lace work come in new designs, and frequently are as fine as those woven by fairy fingers. Stockings with panels of black lace over gold silk harmonize well with black or black and gold slippers. Only to be seen to be admired are the stockings strewn with delicately# colored old-fashioned bouquets, or those inserted with lace butterfly motifs. ; rolled are those of Miss Suo Myrick, of 'Milledgevlllc, Go., and Miss Bar! barn Brockman, of Fort Smith, Ark., whose apllcatlons havo been favorr ably passod upon by the eugenics record office at Cold Spring Harbor, N. : Y.
