LATE SPRING BRIDES AND BRIDAL FINERY
TROUSSEAUX for spring brides show many novelties. A vast number of the wedding gowns are made of the most gauzy fabrics, which replace the heavy satins once used almost exclusively. A high silky finish that is quite silvery is a feature of some of the most popular textiles, which include gauzes of every .-...ii. as well as such thin silks as mes saline and soft finished taffetas. These delicate materials respond readily to the styles of the hour,-the draped bod- Ices, shirred sleeves and daintily trim -11 •■! skirts . ailing for suppleness. The majority of the imported gowns are still of satin, made in the staid way approved for French bridesthat is, with the skirt more frequently plain than trimmed, and the bodice showing at most a lace bertha and sleeve frills, or a drapery of tulle and orange blos soms. Though brides in other coun tries are apt to be more fussy, the French exaction for a high neck and long sleeves is observed generally everywhere else. 7"-- The fad of .hour for transparent materials brings lace into the field, and never were lace gowns more ravishing than those now designed for bridal use. Here, too,- is another innovation, for Instead of orange blossoms the filmy costumes are sometimes garlanded with nails of tiny white roses with green foliage. These blooms are called, by courtesy. . bride roses, but they are merely the close dwarf flowers which have become stylish in the millinery world. Sometimes they are put on a skirt in wreaths, tied at the top with the ribbon bow knots of the Louis periods. An altar gown showing this treatment has a flounced petticoat of Lierre lace and a train and bodice of Ivory satin. In the bertha of the bodice and through the trimming of the elbow sleeves bands of the tiny flowers are placed effectively. Marvelously beautiful webs are shown among the lace novelties of the new season, a handsome pattern in these sometimes composing the bride's bodice which may be worn with a satin or ottoman silk, made plainly. Among these laces is a creamy net with raised flowers in mercerized silk called Chi nese embroidery. The finished Idveli ness of the needlework is so nearly like that upon the gorgeous mandarin robes, that it is difficult to believe it is machine made. But for that matter machine made laces are all wonderful this season, some of the Irish crochet imitations being scarcely distinguish able from the real thing. The tendency with these, however, is toward a vulgar lavishriess that cannot help being its own undoing, lor some of the gown en tredeux are quite ten inches wide. These shape, in the main, a species of trellis against which is hung loosely the most madly big flowers, sunflowers, • alia lilies and roses. They are more like bedspread laces than frock trim mings, but one bridal trousseau held a white veiling dress decked with the sunflower pattern. j Fairly inexpensive lace dresses bought by many brides are the half made box gowns, with the top of the skirt of I.ierre lace and the flounces of Bruges. Round point and point ap plique are the privilege of more ex travagant brides and all lace gowns are mounted over chiffon before being hung over the silk linings in order to preserve a soft effect The train of the satin or silk altar gown is immensely long and wadded. if §§|l|lp§ti • DAINTY MENUS FOR* SPRING WEDDINGS • jft^sft = ' m-m*^* e^a-m. * ___^-m_ : Ira UITE generally the bride prospec lyi live maps out her plans and 7^ wishes, but the responsibility of i he bridal feast rests, with other weari some details, at the mother's door. A .spring wedding is all the more appro priate if marked by simplicity and this Lot is .a distinct help. The nature of the feast will depend largely upon the hour of the ceremony. If the wedding occurs at high noon, it is followed by a breakfast, and in this case it is the general custom for all of the guests as well as the bridal party to be seated at tables. If the ceremony takes place at four in the afternoon. it is followed by a reception which need not be more formal than the simplest of afternoon teas, and a bouffet service is maintained during the entire prog ress of the reception. Happy it that mother and bride whose home is in the country, for then Dame Nature will lighten both expense and burden. Woody odors and field blossoms will give new flavor to the dainty wedding refreshments, and it will even pay the city hostess to draw on her country friends rather than the florist for her decorations. Masses of daisies and. ferns form the most effective of decorations for late spring weddings, but it must be borne in mind that these field flowers fade quickly: Their stems must be kept in water and they cannot be laid care- HABERDASHERY IN EASTER PARADE WOMANKIND no longer reigns alone in the parade Of fine-rai- ment which marks Easter day. Every city and hamlet has its boule vard which is gay with pedestrians be fore and. after service on this great Sunday, and men in their own peculiar way are as-particular about Easter rai ment as their sisters, wives and sweet hearts. ! •_'/•'"■ The wife who wishes to buy a nov elty for her. husband to wear on the Easter parade, and the mother who may be-/looking for something new in gloves, will find that many of the col orings considered correct for women's wear have invaded the haberdashery, though in slightly subdued tones. The very conservative man clings to the pure white linen for church, and In spite of. fashion's decree that cuffs will be detached, he continues to have his cuffs a part of his skirt. His more dar ing brother employs a colored shirt with white collars . and cuffs and though only an inch or so of the shirt shows, special consideration Is given to its tones. Vivid colorings are decidedly In evidence, even figures on a white mound no., longer'showing the delicate shades which men have favored so long. Bosoms of colored shirts are finely tucked and the. latest models have three buttonholes down the front for fancy studs. The latter come in sets to. match cuff links," and one well dressed bachelor has a set of links and studs to match each shirt. Especially smart is a set having an amethyst cat's c"» set in gold for wear with a white It is usually detached from the petti coat so that the frock may afterwards be worn without it, and in choosing the veil the gown material is always taken Into account Unhemmed tulle veils, which invariably.accompany fig ured stuffs, are seen perhaps more than others, but with a plain silk or satin gown the veil may be a Brussels net with a border of duchesse lace. Its arrangement upon the head remains practically the same, the bunching over the ribbon band showing a coronet spray or knots of orange blossoms and the fall at the front being far less than that at the back. lessly on the cloth as roses and carna tions sometimes are. A wealthy girl who is to be < married from her father's country home on Long Island is planning a daisy wed ding breakfast after this fashion:,. The table for the bridal party, which, by the way, includes the clergyman,, will oc cupy the center of the dining room, and the remainder of the- guests will be seated at small tables in groups of four. '„'-■-.■' For the large table the certerpiece will be a glass epergne with five branches, each of which, shaped like a lily, will hold a graceful spray of field daisies and ferns, while the epergne it self will be placed on a round, shallow dish filled with moss, in which a circle of ferns is thickly planted. Green-can dles with green and white silk shades, in colonial glass candle sticks, will sup ply the light At the smaller -tables no flowers will be used and the center piece will be a candle stick with silk shade encircled by artificial daisies. ; The heavy-portieres in the doorways will be replaced by curtains composed of alternate strands of smilax and daisy chains, falling from the top of the door way to the floor in imitation and bead effects. An up to date breakfast menu may include a mayonnaise of salmon and lobster, sweetbread patties, fritot of fowl, orange and watercress salad, a sweet, such as frozen - fruit or frozen pudding, with the usual complement of shirt figured with tiny lavender fleur de-lis. Ties and neck scarfs show a decided though harmonious contrast to the shirt, and the colorings are so exquisite that the haberdasher must haver de signs on feminine as well as masculine pocketbooks. A brocaded silk scarf in superb, amethyst shade is worn with a deep blue shirt: sage green is effective with tan and a light gun metal shade of gray looks well on a pink shirt. The red tie is also in vogue at present and is worn with a gray or pink and white striped shirt. One particularly fetch ing combination of colorings is display ed in a mother's Easter. gift to her blonde son. The present includes a shirt of very fine quality tan madras, with a small blue figure, a*changeable tie In porcelain blue silk to match the flow erlike dots and a tan vest of broad cloth, so silky that it has the appear ance of tan suede. '■:',. '■'._*•; Plain waistcoats in delicate gray shades will also be very popular for Easter wear. A gray waistcoat of rough weave shows a tiny, white flower and has the edges bound with white silk braid. Many, of the swagger sum mer waistcoats are finished with wide novelty silk braids. in white or cream, and are fastened with glass or mother of pearl buttons. - Suede gloves in a very delicate shade of gray or in the champagne color so popular in Paris last summer, will be the finishing .touch to the smartly dressed man on Easter Sunday, but the man of,less extravagant tastes. will be «tuite as correctly gloved in glace kids of brilliant brown shade bordering on orange. v :. '•*•...■ THE ST. PAUL GLOBE. SUNDAY, APRIL IG, 1905 Shepherdess hats will be worn by tbe bridesmaid;- at late spring church weddings, . which are likely to be cele brated by many watteau features. A charming bridesmaid's toilette is com pleted by one ■of these dainty bits of millinery, the hat shape of white chip and the trimmings -pink roses and pink satin ribbon. The gown is of white mousseline and similar ribbon, which is- put on skirt and bodice in a novel fashion. Round rosettes complete the rosy striping of the skirt, and the bands which deck the bodice and sleeves are finished in the same way. However charming the toilet of the wedding cake. If the bride's health is to be drunk in wine, and the price of champagne is prohibitive, sauterne Mo selle or claret cup may be substituted. A good recipe for mayonnaise of sal mon and lobster is this: Boil two pounds of salmon in a napkin until it falls apart in flaky lumps and make a farce of lobster in- the following way: Pass half a pound of the best portions of a cooked lobster through a very flne mincer and moisten it with half a cup of stiff "-mayonnaise dressing, then add half a gill of cool aspic jelly. Line a china - fish mold with a thin layer of aspic-jelly and as soon as the latter is set spread a layer of the lobster farce all over p. Cover the farce with ; flakes of cooked salmon and continue : to use alternate layers of farce and sal mon until the mold is full, finishing with the farce. Pour a small quantity of cool aspic over the latter and put the mold Into a cold place until the con tents are sufficiently firm to be turned out Serve the fish Ice cold, surround ed with lettuce leaves. ' Sweetbread Patties Cook a pair of calves' sweetbreads until tender in very little water. Chop fine, and season with salt and pepper. Thicken the water in which they are cooked with butter and flour and half a pint of cream. Just before filling the pattie cases, which can be bought at any hake shop, if desired, add three hard boiled eggs chopped fine. Heat patties slightly before filling. GIFTS AND FAVORS FOR EASTERTIDE EASTER gifts and favors for Easter week . functions seem to have "touched the top notch of extrava gance this season, yet there are many little trifles to be picked up at small figures "which are eminently appropri ate to the day. without slavishly imitating the high priced novelties of fered In jewelry and French confec tionery shops. It is no longer considered essential' to carry the semblance of an egg or a wee chick into every Easter souvenir, still some exquisite designs In decorated eggs are to be seen. From an exclu rsive woman's exchange comes a novel jewel box. It rests upon a low. circu lar pedestal, an egg. eight inches at its greatest length, covered with satin, painted in a Marie Antoinette design, and lined with tufted silk. The lower half of the egg, resting on the pedes tal, Is divided into three compartments for brooches rings; etc.. and in the lid are bands of silk elastic.

Some young mammas will give away spring brides in costumes as youthful as those seen in their daughter's trousseaux, for gowns for slight figures are rarely elderly in style, and the old fashion of wearing "mother colors" is done away with. Even "moth er" textures,"as the old satins, silks and velvets might be called, are to a great degree superseded at the wedding by fabrics such as the daughter herself Fritot of Fowl Roast a fowl In a quick oven, basting it frequently until it is cooked. Allow the bird to cool and cut it into neat pieces, removing the skin and smaller bones. Put a pint of milk into a sauce pan and with four large artichokes and an onion cut into slices, three cloves, salt and pepper to taste. Let the milk reach the boiling point, then simmer until the artichokes are quite tender. Pass through a fine hair sieve, together with the milk in which they were cooked, Cook two ounces of but ter and two tabiespoonfuls of flour together until a smooth, thick paste is formed: stir in the artichoke puree by degrees and let the sauce boil five min utes.

In real gold and genuine gems these come very high, but there are very dainty little imitations of silver gilt and semi precious stones as low as 50 or 75 cents or $1. For 75 cents a shopper may pick up a pretty little pendant, showing an amethyst above a fresh water pearl, or vice versa. Topaz and coral are also popular stones for this summer. For Easter luncheons wee velvet bunnies, stuffed with sawdust, make cunning souvenirs, which are afterward utilized for pincushions. The velvet Is white, delicately tinted with tapestry paint to an occasional pinkish flush. Pale pink beads are used for eyes, and the tips of the ears and toes should also.be tinted pink, \«£i Flat, round boxes for holding candy are hidden in delicate green fringe, cut from crepe paper, and the lid shows an Easter lily also made from paper. Ex quisite little boudoir or desk candles can be bought for 50 cents each, in bisque or tinted glass, in the form of Easter lilies, tulips or crocuses. They make the daintiest of Easter souvenirs for luncheons or card parties. Baby faces In cherubic colorings and deli cately tinted butterflies appear on the lids of Easter candy boxes. The baby faces are of bisque, and, instead of the ordinary halo of golden hair, they rise from silk or paper lily petals. Paper •butterflies form- the lids of boxes shaped like the wings and body of. the angelic little creatures, and the Wings are sometimes in layers, being made from .delicately tinted paper .with, markings of silver and gold. v An exquisite little dinner favor shows a gilt basket tied with narrow lavender and green ribbons.

Made of deep yellow batiste, in which a superb embroidery of the same was lavishly inserted, the wide girdle of soft messaline silk was in faint tones of violet, pale blue and green, which rainbow combination of tints is much seen. The hat was of pale blue pana ma. bent into shape, and it was trim med with scarfs of messaline in similar tints; and the cream satin shoes show ed the rainbow hues in huge round ro settes. Another youthful mother gown .is of taffeta ecaille (the pale yellow seen in tortoise shell), with a superb and dry them thoroughly on a soft cloth. Cook the potatoes In a liberal supply of hot. but not boiling fat. until they, are tender, but do not allow them to acquire any color. Drain them on paper and leave them to get -cold. Shortly before they are required put the potatoes into a wire basket and plunge it into a pan containing an abundance of clean, boiling fat. In a few moments they should puff up and be evenly browned. Dry the potatoes on a wire drainer as they are taken from the basket and keep them hot in the oven until they are ready. Maple Mousse Boil one large cup of maple syrup until it ropes, and pour slowly over the well beaten yolks of eight eggs, beat ing constantly until smooth. Put in a double boiler and scald, being careful not to boil. Remove from the fire and let it become cold. Then stir into it one pint of whipped cream. Turn into a freezer, pack well in Ice and let stand for three or four hours. At an afternoon reception where a buffet lunch -is served, several ser vants will be needed in" the dining room to remove the soiled dishes, bring on fresh ones and see that the supplies on the table are constantly renewed. A Philadelphia girl who has country friends is planning to use laurel for her decorations. ' It will be shipped to her from the woods in barrels, being thoroughly sprinkled before it is ship- paper, and covered by a tiny paper lace dolly. Lavender ribbons are much used for trimming Easter baskets, and pale blue and certain shades of laven der are cleverly combined for the same purpose. The great, high handled baskets used In winter to hold American beu ty roses are.reproduced in miniature, filled with moss in which a wee fern is planted, and,' tied with proportionally narrow ribbon, are used for Easter re membrances. For a children's party a most ef fective centerpiece is a big bunny made from. rough, fuzzy brownish cloth or plush. He sits on his haunches, and his forearms are encircling a wicker basket filled with candy Easter eggs, or tiny downy chicks, which cost a cent each. ;" ( ; *. - For the Easter Monday dinner table or for the children's party come French" snapping mottoes in. white crepe paper, thickly fringed at each end and encir cled by silver lace. A wonderfully natural lily, in white paper, is.used for a finish instead of the usual embossed picture. Among the paper favors shown for the Easter cotillon are wands, tipped with Easter lilies or butterflies: won derful gauzy wings In net and tinsel, which could be fastened to the back of. the frailest dancing frock. Silk and velvet bunnies, .whose heads -can be lifted off to uncover dainty French bon bons and pinballs of white satin topped with Easter lilies In silk. Unquestionably the juvenile novelty is the candy box which shows a husky policeman in full uniform, compressed into egg shape and set upon very thin -wire legs. Nearly all the familiar fig ures of the Sunday-comic "sheets are compressed into some ridiculous shape and utilized for candy receptacles. lace in the same tint. This was in prim form, and the smart lace toque which would accompany it showed tulle twists and ostrich feathers In the pal est baby blue!

The entire north wall of the din ing room will be covered with a screen made from coarse chicken wire, and the sprays of laurel with its pink and white blooms will be caught in the mesh. Against this beautiful back ground will be placed a long narrow table covered with a damask cloth and decorated very simply with silver candlesticks, pale pink candles and shades to match, with a white glass bead fringe. The centerpiece will be a tall glass vase filled with graceful sprays of laurel, and the bonbons and small cakes will be pink and white. The only warm dish served will be chicken patties. A salad, sandwiches, punch, cake and Ices will complete the service. When the wedding Is even simpler than this, the afternoon menu may show merely sandwiches, a rather heavy salad, such as lobster or chicken, ices, cake and coffee. A hot dish is not considered essential. With such a menu one housemaid for removing the soiled dishes is quite sufficient, and two friends of the bride's mother may preside at either end of the table dispensing the Ices and salad, while a group of pretty girl friends may assist in serving the guests as they come into the dining room. For the quiet home wedding no menu should be selected that threatens to tax the family cook too heavily, and It must be borne in mind also that table decorations this year are extremely light and airy. Kia borate floral plateaus FANTASTIC IDEAS IN EASTER GLOVES i ■;'..-.;•!: PERHAPS it is due to the distinctly feminine superstition that a new pair of gloves worn on Easter day will insure Miladi's happiness during the coming season, perhaps it is mere ly her own fondness for a trim looking hand to match her Easter hat. but cer tain it is that break of the Lenten fast loses half its pleasure if she fails to sport a brand new pair of kids when churchward bent on this spring feast day. And supplementing this pair, a box filled to the brim with the latest handcoverlngs usually stands on her dressing table at home. There nev was a year when a cor rectly gowned woman needed so many flairs of gloves as she will during the warm months cf 1905. Dame Fashion has sent forth a positive decree that gloves must match the frock, and this Is as true of elbow and shoulder kids as it is of ordinary walking gloves. As a consequence, mannish looking gloves have given place to soft kids of every imaginable shade with markings on the back In. self-tone silk or in the same shade of leather appliqued with fine stitching. Buttons rather than clasps continue to be the smart fastening, and mother of pearl buttons the size of a 10 cent piece are popular on the softer shades of kid. Buttons in imitation of genu ine pearls of medium size are employed as fastenings on 'the fancy and more expensive gloves. Buttons covered with kid to match the gloves are also shown. On the backs of white or black gloves there Is a decided vogue for black or white stitchings. and the glace kid has not fallen off one whit in popularity. Black glace gloves show three lines of white silk stitching half an inch in width and a lining of' white kid in the wrists. Long black kids, so stunning for wear with short sleeved frocks. The bride's going away frock is not •in arbitrary matter, for any spring material may be used, and the bride is only distinguished from less important folk by the immaculate * freshness of her toilette. -Nothing which attracts attention to her new and embarrassing estate is worn, however. Some brides prefer to wear old clothes on the honeymoon trip rather than be remark ed. A number of the going away gowns are of thin French cloth, in quite severe tailor styles and somber colors. me of the coats are In redingote form, with many smart little vest ar rangements, which sometimes show a touch of brilliant .color. A smart trav eling frock of dull gray cloth displays a three-quarter redingote. double breast ed, with a narrow vest of scarlet cloth. This was cut very low at the bust to show a tucked chemisette of flne whit.* linen, laundered like a man's shirt and completed by a stiff linen collar ami scarlet satin tie. Another redingote— and this was of checked spring suit ing—was fitted to the figure at the shoulders and waist by a series of nar row side plaits, these forming at the last point the effect of a wide girdle Only the slimmest figure could stand this somewhat bunglesome treatment novel and stylish though it was. The skirt of every redingote gown seen shows the severe plainness exacted for all long coat models. Other departments in bridal trous seaux display naturally the newest features of the season. Whenever such models can be worn, the little hats with tossed up brims, which seem sometimes almost comically small, abound over all other shapes. Flowers, exquisitely disposed, deck these, and to go with such flxy and artificial head* gear all dressy parasols are trimmed gaily. Lattice work of chiffon pipings or ribbon or velvet over lace forms tha borders of some silk and satin after noon sunshades, which are smaller and somewhat more mushroom in shape than formerly. Garlands of little How - ers may loop over those of chiffon or lace for still more elegant gowns, an.l the silk stockings which go with these show extravagant embroideries in col or. Bridal footgear, in fact is most exquisite, shoe heels and stockings oft en matching a day costume and no de vice being neglected to bring a pretty foot Into notice. Butterflies, wreaths, forget me nots and even the homely bumble bee appear upon the instep of silken hose whose supporting garters match the color of the lovely needle work. To make the ankle smaller the back of the stocking may be in a solid color, the violet, apple green or blue of the instep embroideries matching. In the way of bridal lingerie the best models are marked by a chaste sim plicity, which might also be called plainness. Handkerchief linen is the most dainty material employed in tic- French garments, all of which are hand embroidered, and some In designs un earthed from old convents in France and Italy. A cording to the folk who pedigree these points, not a few of the new nee dle work patterns are taken from the grave clothes of- long dead nuns. These the nuns had worked themselves, and, not to be outdone In sentiment, the modern French bride copes the wreaths of lilies and missels, closed and open, upon her wedding finery. It seems 'an exquisite fancybut aside from the sentimental part of It these old convent embroideries are rav ishingly beautiful. — Mary Dean. Thi Wedding Breakfast Involves at teast One Hot Dish, but the Reception Demands [l Only Hot Coffee. Tea or Chocolate and top heavy centerpieces have quite gone out of style. A reliable recipe for bride's cake: Two pounds of pulverized sugar, one and one-half pounds of fresh butter, one-half pound of sweet butter, one half pound of sweet almonds, a few drops of bitter extract of almonds. Pound the almonds in a mortar until line, add a little rose water. Beat the butter, sugar and almonds together un til very light. Beat the whites of thirty eggs to a stiff froth and add them With two pounds of finely sifted flour. Flavor with vanilla. Mix with the Hour two large teaspoonfuls of cream tartar and one teaspoonfu] of soda. Fruit Cake—Sort, clean and flour two pounds of raisins and two pounds of currants. Slice and flour one-half pound of citron, one pound of figs and one pound of dates. Beat one pound of butter with two pounds of sugar until very light. Add the beaten yolks of one dozen eggs, and then, very slowly, one half pint of sweet milk. Have ready two pounds of flour well sifted and add this alternately with the whites of the eggs, flavor to taste with cloves, cinna mon and nutmeg, add your floured fruits, and at the very last beat In lightly and quickly one small glass of preserved cherries and one of strawber ries, making sure that the preserves are very stiff.

Black suede gloves' also show white Btltchlngs. White glace kids are embroidered with three rows of black stitching inter cepted by tiny diamond shaped figures. Long white kids are Inset with medal lions of real lace, the kid being cut out from underneath to show the pink flesh of the arm. The costliness of these long white gloves can be greatly reduced If a woman will save the. up pers when the fingers wear out and have her glove maker fasten them to a pair of new hands plainly or with embroidery or insets of lace. Colored gloves, are decorated in all sorts of fantastic ways. One exclusive shop is showing gloves with wide scal lops around the wrist, from under which extends another row of scallops In a contrasting shade of leather. Wide silk stitchings in self-tone on the backs are outlined with silk of the same shade as the under scallop of kid. Glace kids which reach half way to the el bow are lined to the three button open ing with supple kid of some other del icate color. A pair of pink gloves has * lining of pale blue kid with pale blue stitchings on the back. Baby blue gloves are lined in the same way with pale lavender kid. Many of the fancy gloves have buttonholed silts In th« lower part of the third and fourth, finger to allow diamond or pearl ring settings to show when the glove is on the hand. For rough wear the gauntlet glove with flaring wrist will be the favorite of this year's, athletic girl. Some of these have a snap hook purse on the edge In which to keep small change- Onion brown is at present their popu lar shade.
