STARTING PLANTS FOR
NEGLIGEES, LOVELY AND BRIGHT,
PAY THEIR TRIBUTE TO BEAUTY
Mr f J- 4 Y
ONE might bi well undertake to
talk about th styles In butter
flies as to enumerate those In
negligees. It appears that designers,
when considering these garments, un
loose thoughts that fly far and In
many directions, In search of Inspira
tions, and whaterer they find pleasing
is brought home and used. In these
lovely and colorful gowns fancy takes
all the latitude it will, paying tribute
to beauty with Ideas gathered from
every quarter of the world.
Although there are negligees and
negligees, with a few among them first
cousin to the Chinese trouscr and
coat costume, most of them are much
like the lovely model shown here.
Long, loose garments with flowing
lines, In soft, supple fabrics and live
ly colors, they arrive at the same goal
by different but always graceful ways.
Some of them hang In straight lines
from the shoulder and others are
bloused at a low belt line. They are
In a position to revel In the uneven
hemline and go to greater lengths In
featuring sleeves than any other arti
cle of apparel may. i
In the negligee pictured a long over
dress Is set onto a straight bond of
lace, chemise style, with lace bands
over the shoulders. The sleeves form
draperies that reach almost to fhe

weighted with bead tassels that fall

of georgette crepe and It Is one of
several models having plulted skirts.
One can Imagine It In one or a com

favored, such as royal blue, citron,
orange, pink or flame.

are interested, are less perishable

CHIC NEW FROCKS
Simplioity of Line Marks New
Dresses for Season.
Gowns Are Simply and Quietly Length
ened Harmony Watch werd
Must Be Becoming to Figure.
Two notable elements apparent Id
the season's frocks Is the decided unl
fornilty In the matter of the design and
the popular Bateau neckline. For this
simplicity the French are no doubt
At present the lines are longer, to
be sure, but they are simply and quiet
ly lengthened, with every attention
given to the proportion and the blend
ing of one line with another, until
there results that harmony -which Is al
ways satisfying and which, authorita
tively handled, Is becoming to what
ever figure happens to wear It.
In accord with this, Is the unusually
simple design of the frock of mauve
colored erepe, trimmed effectively with
terra cotta, bli and brown beads.
The frock shown may be .made from
the same puttern by an Inventive
seamstress. It Is one of the most pop
ular models of the season, and it has
nothing but straight lines to entice the
wearer. This IS made of emerald
green silk duvetyn with' the sleeves,
long side panels and the narrow neck
frill made of accordion plaited dove
gray crepe de chine.
Another frock which muy easily be
cut from the same pattern, with the
possible exception of the widened
skirt, is made of velvet This has the
drawn-tn bodice, made possible by a
very slight fitting. Then It tops the
straight hanging skirt, which Is fuller

than we are accustomed to see, and
which Is simply gathered over a hidden
belt. The finishing touch Is most ef
fective of all, and Is achieved with
rows of gray tassels and bands of gray
wool trimming, simulating caracul fur.
The sleeves are tightly fitted and lend
a decidedly new air. Worn with either
of the frocks mentioned Is the plaid
woolly scarf with tarn to match, which
Is appealing to all types.
NEW HATS HAVE LACE VEILS
Decoration Is Draped About Brims,
Dropping Over the Face to Tip
of the Note.
Many of the new hats have short
lace veils draped about their brims,
dropping over the face to the tip of the
nose. These lace "half veils" have
sprung Into popularity suddenly, being
worn by practically every smart wom
an at the French races.
Birds' wings have come Into promi
nence as trimming, particularly on
small hats, which are In ninny cases
encircled with masses of them. In fuct,
In Paris at the Theater Michel, where
one of the suiurtest revues of the sea
son was presented, one of the society
leaders wore an original and much
talked of headdress made of upturned
wings of kingfisher feathers, three or
four placed one above the other on
each side of her face.
For a Stout Figure.
For the woman who has grown stout
to disguise the figure Is one of the
great arts at present, and In this the
cape Is a welcome aid to the older
woman. Made In every sort of fab
rlc, from the plainest to the loveliest,
the cape has varieties beyond enumer
ation. One model shown Is of a
straight band of kasha cloth held at
the neck by a matching double scarf
weighted with two tassels; It might
equally well be made of heavy wool, of
silk, or of the lightest or the heaviest
fabrics. In tulle, matching the eve
nlng gown, these capes give an added
distinction to the costume, cleverly
blurring the outline of the figure.
"Gas nounds" Is the popular name
In Texas for the low, circular emi
nences, averaging 20 feet Id diameter
and two feet In height, which abound

Oklahoma. On the supposition that
the mounds have been raised by
ascending gas from subterranean oil
pools, they are regarded as Indicating
oil beneath. A government geologist,
who has examined the mounds, dis
putes this theory of their erigln. They
occur In many districts where not the
least sign of oil or gas has been ill
covered. He thinks that they owe
their existence mainly to the unequal
settling of the ground In poorly-drained
areas subjected to abundant periodic
rainfall. Milwaukee Sentinel.
