Group of Approved Sailors
One may see in this group of sailors the progression in width of brim as the style becomes more summery in com position and suggestion. Under this title of sailors, it seems, about seven tenths of the season’s shapes may be classed. A Hat brim of uniform width leaves us in no doubt, but then there are rolling brimmed sailors, too. But these sailors shown in the picture are selections to which the milliner points with a pride that is well justified— while she turns her attention to mak ing new ones with increasing width of brim with which to greet the advanc ing summer. At the right 4 pretty hemp hat is pictured. It Is a soft-appearing, pressed shape with slightly indented crown, in battleship gray. Two bands of velvet ribbon, unequal in width, in a fairly strong blue color, encircle the crown. Four ornaments are set over these bands. They are made of suede kid stretched over a supporting foun dation. The kid is in the color of the hat and forms a background for a spi der-web design in needlework wrought in blue of a silk fiber used in millinery. Coral beads are added to this to make the attractive and substantial-looking ornament. At the upper left a beautifully woven Chinese straw hat in the nat ural straw color allows the use of nar row brown faille ribbon in a unique trimming. Short lengths of the ribbon *re thrust through spaces between the straws of which the shape is made. Cherries are set in a close row about Usefulness of Separate Collars Aside from their ofllce of furnishing a decorative finishing touch of dainti ness to the apparel, collars are to be considered from other points of view, for this season, at least. With the new blouses made with high or convertible collars attached, some means mast be devised to keep the neck and upper part of the back from becoming too quickly soiled Wash silk and the various silk crepes stand tubbing us well as other fabrics, but It is hardly worth while to overdo it by washing lhe entire blouse because the collar or shoulders at the back have become soiled with a single day's wear. The separate collur of lace or em broidered batiste is at hand, in inex haustible variety of styles and pat terns, to be worn with all sorts of blouses. That portion which slipß un der the blouse protects it from per spiration, and the collar lies over the collar of the blouse and keeps it clean. Another ofllce of the separate collar lies in Its provision of a touch of white or cream color on the blouses and dresses of dark colors. Here it 1b al ways good, and no one—unless It is the palest of blondes - can afford to dispense with white, or a pale tint, next the face. Two collar designs are shown in the picture. One of them is a wired ruff of lace, sewed to a small cape of mull which lies under the blouse. The vis ible portion of the other is of daintily embroidered batiste, and contrives to high at the back, lower ut the sideß the base of the crown and the ribbon terminates in clipped ends on the brim. The third sailor is a fine milan in sand color with big daisies and shaded blue forget-me-nots set close against the side crown. These (and all the crown) are veiled with malines in the color of the shape stretched over them. Narrow velvet ribbon in blue, made into small, flat bows with triple ends, ex tends about the crown in a band with bows posed flat on the brim. In Girdle Effects. The narrow ribbons, usually of vel vet, or with crosswise cord, or in rather heavy grosgrain with a plcot edge, are sometimes drawn around the waist and knotted in a little bow and short ends, or in long loops and very long ends in the back; but they are more often used to finish or trim some other girdle arrangement, or to give the effect of girdle lines without the realty. Warm Evening Wraps. Evening wraps are very cozy this winter, for so many ordinarily wealthy people are now reduced in income and are traveling by the ’bus or subway, denying themselves the luxury of a taxi, except on wet nights. A new and charming idea for an evening wrap is a long cloak of radium blue ripple pony cloth, set in gathers on a capelike fur yoke that fits well and closely over the shoulders. und altogether absent at the front, where the throat is uncovered. Many of the new silk blouses ars designed with special reference to these separate collars—or, in other words, a separate collar is a part of the design, and one of them goes with the blouse, while extra collars are to be added when they are needed. JULIA BOTTOMLEY. Hints on Decoration. It is very easy to spoil a room by choosing the w'rong fabric. The deli cate outlines of Chippendale chairs and sofas demand an inconspicuous upholstering, und the material should at least suggest silk. Armures und other small patterned silks are the best choice, and the material may well be fine, as the quantity needed is so small. Never obscure the beautiful back of a Chippendale chair or sofa w ith any sort of a cushion. The cane work of a good piece is as interesting us carving. The same thing applies to Jacobean pieces. Gloves of the Moment White and black gloves are the gloves of the moment, and the two tones are combined in dozens of ways. One combination that 1b striking is this: A white dressed kid glove, with black stitching around the edges of the fingers, heavy black embroidery on the backs and wide black straps across the inside of the wrists. THE CULM* OBSERVES. Laura Jean Libbey’s Talks on Heart Topics [Copyright. 1915. by tba McOura Nnnptpcr ARE DAUGHTERB WISER IN LOVE MATTERS THAN THEIR MOTHERS? In men whom men denounce as ill I see so much of goodness still; In men whom men pronounce divine I see so much of sin and blot; I hesitate to draw the line Between the two—where God has not. The class of girls Who are. willing to abide by their mother’s choice of a lover for them is equally divided. There are ener getic mothers of backward, bash ful daughters, who take their love af fairs in hand from start to finish. They decide what young men shall be introduced to them, and draw a sharp line as to those whom they consider undesir able. Such a mother coaches her daughter as to how she shall en- tertain the young man when he calls. If after repeated visits, he should take it upon himself to make too ardent love to her the mother tells her how she must behave to subdue his impetuosity; what she must do if he insists upon holding her hand when he bids her good-by at the door. The timidity of such a girl increases tinder such tutelage. She is always in terror lest she will not say or do the right things. She has not the abil ity to decide in a critical moment what is the right course to pursue. She has not had an opportunity to talk it over with mother. There’s another class of girls who take quite a different viewpoint as to their heart affairs and what is best for them. They argue that they can discriminate as to what young men should be their associates, and as to those whom they should turn down, the delicacy of the courtship preced ing the marriage proposal; how to act properly—not too cold nor yet too bold; when to speak, when to remain silent; just how to touch the silver cord that will win for herself a hus band. Who shall say which is best for any one mother to do—coach her daughter or depend upon her to rely upon her own experience to guide her. She knows how she won her heart mate. She has heard her husband discourse on this subject from a man’s point of view, while he laughed and told her of the stories he had swapped with other men. This gives a woman insight into a man’s character which she could not otherwise possess. The experienced mother unerringly divines a man’s intentions as to whether he is on marriage intent, or only fooling time away. The inexpe rienced daughter can simply guess. She learns too late, if she has been entertaining a fickle lover, when he gives her up without ado and hies to a new sweetheart. Summing up the situation, it would seem that if a girl Is old enough and sensible enough to have a beau, the reins should be put in her hands for guiding him. It is she who will have to live with him if they wed. A word of motherly coun sel now and then if she is in doubt, should be sought, appreciated and ac cepted. Lovemaking is not always the same. Each case is a law unto itself. Much depends upon the lover. Most men are honest and true in lovemak ing. They uphold Innocence and pur ity in women, the rosebloom which jewels existence. Rascals in winning hearts are few' and far between, moth ers find. WINTER EVENING BEAUX. Her lips were so near That what else could I do? You’ll be angry, I fear. Hut her lips were so near— Well, I can’t make It clear Or explain !t to you— But her lips wore so near That whui else could I do? If It’s a stormy winter night, the woman who is expecting her would-be suitor to pay her a call is fearful lesj he will not venture out. This fear shows how little most women under stand the heart of man. The worse the evening the more a man longs for the warmth, comfort, and companionship of some nice, pleas ant woman in her cozy parlor. His boarding place offers little or no at traction; his room Is cheerless. Hooks do not warm his heart, but the gentle clasp of a woman's hand in his has that effect. The glow of the firelight, easy, comfy chairs have a delightful, cheering influence over him. It gives him a taste of home life, no matter how much of a rover he is Inclined to be. Even the plainest of women will look fair to him as he watches her homelike, domesticated feminine ways. Although he may have dined late, he accepts with pleasure the tasty lit tle spread she has prepared for hlpi. It may be only sandwiches or crackers and cheese, some homemade cake, and a cup of tea; but they taste like am brosia to the world-weary man who dines at club, restaurant, or boarding place. He wishes from the depth of his heart that the hands of the clock would not go round 40 fast those cozy winter evenings. If he does overstay by half an hour or so the proper hour for leaving, who can blame him? It is hard for a man to tear himself away from warmth and genial companionship that is slowly but surely resolving itself into the one great love of a man’s life to go forth and face the cold and the storm. It is no wonder that winter evenings draw beaux to women’s sides; that constant ly being together each heart should feel the irresistible charm of the oth er. The coziness of home life is so ap pealing and woman’s influence so com pelling, a man cannot resist love w’ords springing to his lips, asking her to leave her happy home for one of his making. Ere the winter evenings have passed they have named the. Joy ful day. The lover who wends hi& way to your fireside on winter eve nings is worth cultivating. He may not take his girl to many balls, the aters, or dances, but he should not be censured for this. He is learning the stay-at-home habit, which a worn an may thank heaven for when she i& his wife. Her cheerful fireside has saved him from roaming about with careless male companions or staying at clubs far into the wee sma’ hours. Winter betrothals are said to be lucky. Philosophers of old pinned their faith to it. So why should we doubt it? Unfortunate is he who has no sweetheart to while away the win ter evenings with. A man does not need advice when he has got that far along. MEN IN HALL BEDROOMS. Impell'd with steps unceasing to pursue Some fleeting good, that moclrs me with the view; That, like the circle bounding earth and skies, Allures from far, yet as I follow flies. When your pity is aroused by the lonely bachelor, who infers that he has a dreary life of it and is unutter ably lonely in the comfortable hall room of a boarding house, size up his situation in this wise; A man is sel dom or never a bachelor save by his own free will. He has dodged Cupid whenever he has seen him approach ing wkn his arrow pointed toward him. If he showed an inclination to be pleas ant toward women, there would be plenty of doors thrown open to him to dine or pass the evening. The rosy firelight glow and a pleas ant woman sitting opposite him has had no charm for him or his heart would have been warmed toward such a home picture, which many a woman whom he has met has probably uncon sciously suggested. He has knowingly, aye, willingly, passed by opportunities. Modest women can do no more than to smile at him with their bright eyes when they meet him and extend' him an invitation to call. They would willingly get up just such appetizing dishes as he would like if he were to be at their table. No one knows bet ter than the single man that no mat ter where he would choose to dine, whether it be at restaurants or hotels, he is expected to select what he wants with dispatch and make no delay in getting through with as little time as possible. There’s a hungry crowd of people ready to dine standing in line waiting for his place. No one bids him welcome as he enters or expresses the hope that he will soon come again when he takes his departure. He goes out into the storm with no one to care whether he has an um brella or what becomes of him. How different had he been dining with some sweet woman who was interest ed in his welfare. How gratifying to know that there was no undue haste and that he could take time to enjoy the wholesome, appetizing home cook ing set before him. Who but a woman interested in him would be anxious to know if he w'ere pleased with his din ner or not, glad to have him linger as long as he would at the table? Every single man understands both sides of the picture. He knows better than you can tell him that his loneli ness is self-inflicted. He who gives himself up to day dreaming over the happiness of others and his own dis comforts should remember that he is the architect of his own good or ill fortune. Even that hall bedroom with a wife beside him to love him would be changed from cold and gloom to a veritable cozy paradise. Two can live with economy with but little more expense than will keep one, with no regrets, the joy of loving being theirs. America In Print. Americans are the greatest newspa per readers in the world. The dally papers In the United States number 2,472. the weeklies 16,269, and the monthly and other publications bring the total up to 22,806.

Politics Not for Father. According to Dr. Hadley of Yale, “the man who makes politics a profes sion and has a wife and children will have the choice of doing that which is not quite right and staying in ofllce or doing that which Is right and get ting out of office, permitting hlB wife and children to starve.” The statement Is somewhat large and professional, but If taken as sol emn truth, the moral seems to be that politicians should be bachelors.—New York Sun. 1 WESTERN MINING NEWS IN BRIEF Western Newspaper Union News Service.
