The Qyzantlne period seems to havo particularly attracted the designers of colffuro ornaments this season, and ono can pay quite absurdly high prices In the shops for such affairs, but with some dull metal braid and a handful of largo colored and crystal beads they may bo mado cheaply at homo. Tho metal braid used on chairs nnd cur tains aro also materials to bo conjured with. Indeed, the upholstery depart ments In the large shops offer many opportunities for materials, and tho fancy work counter will furnish tho colored stones end crystals by tho box. N'ow, to use a very trite remark, that you havo found the way to purchase your coiffure materials, hero aro a few directions which may assist In the RUSSIAN EMBROIDERY, Christmas festivities -s?&y vmMg. making of them. To begin with, the smaller headdress Is an attractlvo deco ration that Is fushloned of Inch wldo furnituro gimp In dull metal. This Is mado with ono strap nround tho head nnd ono across It, tho ends Joined with large pink stones. Thcso metallic braids mako far more effective hair omnments than the silken ribbons, which, nftcr all, aro only sultnble for youthful faces.

Velvet, chiffon, chartn-usc! embroidery, lace and not may all play their parts In ono frock to mako the whole. In which, however, everything else must bo sub ordinated to the all Important lino. Tho woman who Is clever at putting together a number of trifles in the way of unconsidered odds und ends of fab rics and trimmings certainly scores this season. Take, for Instance, a shal low yoko of lace veiled with chiffon, kimono slcovcs ot charmeuse, with perhaps undcrsleeves of luco or net, a high glrdlo of Persian or Byzantine embroldory and a skirt of charmeuse veiled with chiffon and banded with velvet, and you havo a reclpo for a truly chic gown.

Vou got uj) a Uttlo too early, and It gave you a Hllght headacho, und you did not Ilka your breakfast, and you had two or three tiresome letters and, well, what's the uso of describing It? We all know those days. Now, this Is What you do. CJo up to your room and "dllco." Bring out your beat frock and your new Fhoes and your best silk stockings and, after you have dono your hair very smartly, put them all on; utter this your best hat and your best pair of white gloves and your lovely now coat. When you are quite sure that you couldn't possibly be Im proved upon pick up your cardcase and go out calling if you wish or, If social duties do not press, simply stroll along tho cood residence streets, en joying the well kept houses and tho well dressed, comfortable looking peo ple. At tho end of nn hour your blues will bo gone and you will return quite ready to doff your fine plumage and attack tho worries of tho day. So much for tho valuo of a "dlko." THE WISH TO BE SMART. Some persons believe that every wo man's ambition Is to be considered smart In appeuranco, hut from a high authority comes the Information that for overy woman who wants to be i emart there are ten who want to bo well dressed. "To bo smart," ho says, "Is to go In for all that Is newest and most ex tromo. To be well dressed often means to avoid theso things. The woman who dresses well knows Just when and to what extent to follow fashion and when to assert her own Individuality. She Is capable ot much greater dis crimination than the woman who achieves only smartness." . , 1'SSShxx.4M ?--?AWx.t(fcxVWivtyH2,,f'S '" furo ornaments are among the cuts. One Is mado of gold and green gimp twisted round and round a coron'ct of black velvet, with ro3ettes of green ribbon rrochotcd petals of tho gimp. Tho other ornament, of a simitar sort, has daisies with wired ribbon petals Bet on strands of wired gilt braid. ' Other ornaments nro mado In lattlco work of metal braid, tho braid held to gether with crystals of gold beads. It should ba remembered, though, that those ornaments nro not becoming to every woman, and ono must caro fully Judgo of their effect on tho faco before a well lighted mirror. Women who cannot wear bands nt all should try tho effect of brilliant but terflies in gauze and crystal, with u small algret In tho center.

It is possible for the true artist In color effects to scale tho heights when Imagination Is let looso In thcso har monics of light and shade. I)y day black and somber tints reign supreme, black being qulto the llr.it favorite By night ono may run tho gamut of color which oven tho palette of a Turner could not rival. If asked to pick out tho colorings round which tho great artists In dress love to exerclso their wits this season I should placo tho blues first, from the lovely moonlight and sapphlro tints to tho bleu do corbeau or Indigo tones, nnd secondly the fuchla shades, which are always good in combination with one another. Brocaded coats for evening wear with great fur collArs aro Immensely uma'rt, but tho brocades aro qulto another story from those of othor days. This modern fabric would be but a poor stuK In their eyes, soft and fine as chiffon, printed with delicate fugitive colorings or stiffened with silver or 1 used to weave her spell about us, Theso brocaded coats' depend chiefly on their enormous shawl collars of fur for warmth, for they are merely lined picturesque Hnd Smart OP BLACK BATIN AND OSTRICH FEATHERS. TN spite of tho reason's early edict of "small hats," the petltti models hare not by any means monopolized the modes, for large picture chapeaux aro more In demand than ovor for cere, monlal occasions, Thoy well deserve their popularity. The beautiful hat soon In the cut Is of black atjtln and' very, effectively though simply trimmed with' a 'cluster of handsome ostrich feathers ' &-I their hair on field nights at tho opera In New York. But tho woman who has no traco of tno ethereal or dainty In hor faco should not consider the lllu slvo butterfly for a moment; It's not for her. Among tho Illustrations are two colf furo ornaments In contrasting stylo. For the debutanto Is tho wreath of lit tle blush roses which are sewed to in visible wire, tho dainty wreath going all round tho head and tho cluster of roses coming back of ono ear and tho bow of pink velvet back of the other, close to tho nerk. Tho upper' ornament Is more suitable for a matron and Is made of bead embroidered gauzo band ing, two strips being wired and crossed under a loop at the center front and Joined again over tho cars, whero a fall pf beads finishes tho ornament. with mousscllnc, which does not ad mit of u particle of comfortable Inter lining, Howevor, warmth docs not en tor Into 11 in o.
