QUESTION OF DRESS
IT INEVITABLY COMES UP SEMI
This Is the Time of Year Whan Wom
en Have Nothing to Wear—Too Late
for Summer and Too Early for Win-
This is. the time of year when the
■woman who has not a tremendous
wardrobe has nothing to wear. Flora
McFlimsey, of unhappy memory, is
not in it with the woman of ordinary
means just now. It is too late to buy
anything thin—unless one takes ad
vantage of the wondrous bargains of
summer and prepares for next season
—and too" early to buy even autumn
things, to say nothing of the winter
modes wJiich are not yet .announced,
although well known in some fashion
quarters, Few people realize what a
tremendous business this dressing of
women is. Late in the spring in
Paris and other fashion centers the
fall and winter styles were being
worked upon by designers; if this was
not so dressmakers would be unable
to keep their custom and stores would
not be ready with their winter goods.
But it is too early for those who are
not in the business to tell anything
about styles, hence it is that my lady
wears some of her summer things
quite late and her last year's fall suit
until the dressmakers begin to come
home from Paris, the hat openings are
announced and all the other signs of
the season are showing themselves.
The question of dress bothers a woman
from the cradle to the grave. What
to wear, styles, colors, furs, hats,
gloves and the thousand and one
things that go to make up a woman's
wardrobe are matters that she can
never wholly rid her mind of, even if
she has few clothes. The woman who
has an elaborate wardrobe spends
years of her life in a dressmaking es
tablishment; that is I mean that the
hours she spends there being fitted or
waiting to be fitted, would, added to
gether, probably make years. This of
course is wearing and troublesome,
but to the woman who has a fondness
for good clothes it pays. The thought
ful woman will have occasional
twinges of conscience when she thinks
of all the beautiful things she might
be .ioing for others in those hours, but
there is a class to "Whom good clothes
make up for many of the troubles of
life. The woman who has a small in
niiiie and not many gowns, has equal
trouble and worry about them, be
cf&se her soul is consumed in won
rier whether she shall put all her mon
ey in one good gown or get two or
three cheaper ones, while the question
«.f how to make a little money go a
l<j&g way becomes really tragic.
Many a woman has heartily wished
before" now that all women could
it a uniform or habit like nuns,
and thus do away with the never-end
ing anxiety about what to wear.
There are women who really do not
care what they wear or how they look,
but there are not many of them, and
a man will deny there are any. It is
not wrong for women to have a normal
interest in what they wear, and when
a woman really does not care how she
looks life must have gone very wrong
for her indeed. Even though ones
heart be broken, it is well to keep one s
■ hair in curl. Every woman owes it to
herself te look as. well as she can and
to smile steadily, no matter how many
tragedies are happening in her life.
Women who have had troubles which
would be considered fairly unbearable
by others have been able to endure
life if they had plenty of new clothes.
Say what you will, to be well dressed
is a solace even when clouds are
blackest, and it is a wise provision
that it should be so. For .the heaviest
troubles of life generally fall upon
women, and if there is any comfort to be
obtained from material things of this
kind, no one should begrudge it to
But for the next month the women
all over this broad land will be en
gaged in one pursuit, dressmaking and
preparing the wardrobe for winter.

Mrs. McVicker Dead
PASADENA, Cal., Aug. 26.—Mrs.
James H. McVicker, widow of the fa

died suddenly last night.
GOSSIP FROM GOTHAM
Contrary to expectations, Mrs. Henry-
Barton Jacobs, of Baltimore, has not
revolutionized affairs in Newport. In
deed, though her new villa is one of
the finest on the cliffs, she has made
little progress. Mrs. Jacobs is giTing
a series of dinners, but the ultra fash
ionable set has not attended. She af
fects the old and conservative element,
rather than the "circus crowd." As
Mrs. Robert Garrett she was the
wealthiest woman in Baltimore and
her leadership was unquestioned, but
since her second marriage she has lost
some prestige. Newport has no love in
its heart for leaders from other cities.
That New York women are jealous
was proved when Mrs. Potter Palmer
met her Waterloo in Newport five years
ago. To be sure, the Baltimore wom
en have rushed to Mrs. Jacobs' side.
They include Mrs. Royal Phelps Car
roll, Mrs. John R. Drexel, a Balti
morean by birth, and Mrs. J. Lee
By capturing the Duke of Newcastle
for a guest Mrs. William G. Roelker,
once the wife of William Gould Bro
kaw, has made a fine play. This is
Mrs. Roelker's first season, and her
way has been fraught with obstacles.
The "right people" obstinately stayed
away from Hawkhurst, her rented
villa, and Mrs. Roelker fell back on her
husband's friends, "the Providence
crowd." Only last week she enter
tained Col. and Mrs. William Jay and
the J. De Forest Danielsons, of Boston.
The Jays are conspicuous now on ac
count of their willingness to aid new
comers. "Few of the Newporters can
resist a duke, and even Mrs. Ogden
Mills and James J. Van Alen might
consent to break bread with Newcastle.
The Roelkers will give a series of din
ners for the duke.
Pasadena's Mardi Gras queen has
become engaged to a New Yorker. She
is Miss Joan Hadenfeldt, one of the
beauties of the Pacific coast. Her
fiance is Elmer Woodbury, a hotel
man, and the courtship went on amid
the picturesque surroundings of a mid
summer flower carnival. Miss Haden
feldt lives in San Francisco, and a
portrait by John H. Clawson first drew
attention to her. She is tall and dark.
As queen of the carnival she copied
the -apparel of Cleopatra. She was a
glittering mass of tissues^ necklaces
and embroidered silks. A headdress
of pearls topped her dark brown hair.
Mr. Woodbury originally came from
A dashing matron of Southampton,
in an effort to regain the lost bloom of
youth, put herself in a sorry plight.
She had a new French maid who talk
ed about a certain preparation that
restored the lost color. Madame was
charmed. She said she would give the
maid $500 if her boasts were made
good." The maid came to town and
passed a day in the drug district. She
returned with a reticule filled -with
powders, liquids and camel's hair
brushes. Then she concocted a mix-

and seam outlines, a really beautiful
dress can be made at a comparatively
small outlay. It is not wise to give
too much time or money to the sum
mer evening gown, for it can only last
the one. season. . All that is really .nec
essary,' therefore, is pretty coloring
and a becoming style, not go ink to an
extreme. . It is wise, however, to get
a nice quality of'lace, for this can al
ways be used again. "Valenciennes
with the wide mesh in real lace color
is known as German Valenciennes,
and is preferable to either the French
or Italian; repousse, sometimes Mar
garie, is particularly pretty, when
Valenciennes seems unsuitable, ami by
putting a frill of chiffon beneath the
lace it gains in beauty. The design is
given greater character, and the frock
from being simple, becomes a "Creation,
for which the dressmaker charges ac
cordingly. It is these little touches
though that give a finished air to even
the simplest dresses, and it is in this
that Frenchwomen excel, so that each
dress fashioned is an example of her
ture that would have put a mediaeval
magician to the blush. Madame, in all
confidence, let the maid coat her face
with the pinkish fluid. A "beauty
mask" was tied over the face and
madame went to sleep, expecting to
awake with the complexion- of a girl
of sixteen. But, alas! madame's face
began peeling before breakfast. She
discharged the maid, of course, but
her skin is ruined hopelessly.
One of the best looking women in
Saratoga is Mrs. H. de Berkeley Par
sons, who is one of the leaders of so
ciety in Rye. Although Mrs. Parsons
is not included in the "400" she looks a
queen beside many women of whom
one constantly hears. She resembles
Mrs. H. Mortimer Brooks slightly. Mrs.
Brooks, however, is older and not as
tall. At the races Mrs. Parsons is con
spicuous by her plainness of attire.
She affects untrimmed linens. One of
these severe gowns she wore -the other
day was a delicate shade of robin's
egg blue. It was made with a long
coat. Mrs. Parsons wore a cavalier
hat with a long plume of the same tint
of blue. After the Saratoga meeting
she will return to her summer home
in Rye, which is aptly named The Rest.
It is not improbable that Mrs. Burke
Roche will shortly announce the' en
gagement of her daughter Cynthia to
Arthur Scott Burden. This will not be
a surprise to the companions of Miss
Roche, and the matrons of Newport
have regarded the match as a certainty
since the early June days. This mar
riage will bring Miss Roche well into
the millionaire class, as young Bur
den has a great deal of money. Miss
Roche will some day have a modest
fortune of her own. She is to receive
all that her grandfather, Frank Work,
is possessed of.

Number :of Buyers 'Increases
and Staple Products Are ;■
; Most In Demand
NEW YORK. A«gj| 26.—Bradstreefs
tomorrow will sajfcw, Rather better
Western crop reports-and the advance
ot the fall season have brought an in
creased number of buyers to nearly all
We3tern and Eastern markets. This
has resulted in an enlargement of fall
distributions, -which, however, have
proceeded along: conservative lines,
with staple products notably in most
demand. , A feature of the week
throughout the country has been clear
ance sales of summer gfdods by retail
ers^ which have .enlarged distribution ■
in this line, no doubt to be reflected
later on collections. Industrial re
sumptions are numerous and the ag
gregate number of operatives involved
is considerable. The labor situation is.
still rather complex, a large number
of additional building hands striking
at New York and smaller disturbances.
though generally widely scattered. ,
Against this, however, is to be cited
the practical disappearance from
some sections of the effects growing
out of the meat strike, which is now
practically a matter of history. A rath
er better tone Is noted in textile man
ufacturing clrcles r the effect of nu
merous resumptions of cotton mills
and a disposition to. take hold shown
by buyers of textiles at first and sec
ond hands. Pyrotechnics in the cotton
market and uncertainty as to the fu
ture price of that however, held
down buying. Whiferfew railway earn
ings are available pof£lt to slight gains
over the corresponding month a year
ago. Raw wool is ihj. |rather better de
mand and firm, wita scoured wools
strong. Boston notes an improvement
in duplicate orders lor shoes and the
probability is that a scarcity in the
supply of leather will be revealed.
Lumber Active in Northwest
Lumber is fairiyfes&ve in the North
west, but rather quiet in the East,
where building trade troubles affect dis
tribution. Recent cuts in finished steel
and iron products have contributed to
the uncertainty of buyers, who are in
clined to hold back pending further
developments. The feature in the rail
trade has been a large order (6,000
tons) for the Canadian Pacific railway,
reported as having been placed on a
basis of $22, while as much more has
been placed by domestic roads. Un
certainty as to the coal miners' strike
in the Birmingham-district grows as
the trouble is.protracted and Alabama
furnace men are buying largely of Vir
