HE use of birds and wings In
millinery has, in great measure,
given way to the use of fancy
feathers, that is, fancy feather
pieces put together by the manufac
turers in many forms, such as bands,
pompons, cockades, etc. Fashion
takes mbro kindly to th"e plumage of
birds mounted in ways which do not
suggestthe bird nt all. But the lik
lng lor fancy leathers increases with
such vigor that there Is no sign In
sight pointing toward its waning.
The greater number of wings dis
played in millinery are "made wuiro."
Plumago is selected and sewed to a
foundation to form them. Sometimes
feathers are pasted instead of being
sewed, but this is unsatif factory to
the wearer. Exposure to rain, and
even moisture causo3 them to loosen
nd fall off. As wings are especially
liked for street hats, this is a fault
that cannot be tolerated. Sewed

For certain effects nothing quite

SATIN BORDERS ON COTTONS
Material, Thus Trimmed, Makes Up
Into Dresses of the Most Hand
Some of the new cotton fabrics for
1912 are beautiful in the extreme, and
lift cotton goods iDto the realm of
fine dress. Rich embroidery Is used
on them, and ono of the new features
is satin striping or satin bordering.
On some sheer gray voiles, almost
silky in texture, thefo Is a broad" bor
der of gray satin, heavily embroidered
in the same tone. This will make up
Into handsomo dresses, of which not
even tho most elderly or most wealthy
need feel any uhame.
More youthful and giddy is a light
cotton fabric w ith a border of 6atin
sheer in which the motif is stamped
on in gold, purplo and other rich col
orsa series of largo iris in natural
Solid embroidery in color, combined
with openwork, is a feature of some of
the new white fabrics.
Tho new linens are heavy In texture,
and come In a largo variety of color
ings. Gray in especially well liked,
and there are good blues, pinks, greens
and other shades. In tho rough crash
finishes tho pure white linen is not
eoen as much as tho colored and the
natural tone, but it is pre-eminent
among tho light-weight linens.

Suits of plain one-tone velvet, or
