Its advent officially dates Horn today, a rather contradictory state ment but one that cannot be denied. Spring arrives when the spring bon nets and the spring suits are shown for the delight of milady. Spring came early this year; ear lier than U arrived since the year that James Monroe became president for the first time by the almost unan imous vote of his fellow citizens. Kaster Sunday is just ten days off which accounts for the beautiful, gor geous and striking display of wo men's millinery shown in the store of Evans, Parker & Moore today. When Easter comes with it comes the necessity for a new spring bon not. All womankind, regardless of differences upon other matters, relig ions, political or economic, agree that a new hat is an Easter essential. And Holding to that view they oame out today, in spite of unfavorable weather, to view the creations that artistic eves designed and deft fln gers have cieated. All during the day there was a gay throng of fair femininity in the hand somely fitted millinery parlors of Ev ans, Parker & Moore who exclaimed in rapturous enthusiasm over the lovely creations made for woman's adornment. And while the styles this year are distinct; in truth many of the creations are strictly original, this year's own productions, they are attractive and artistic There is a decided touch of color to all of the creations. They have a nght tinge, bazarre even, that Is s ifjcestive of the French. Whatever may be the ultimate result of the cru sade ;o create original styles and ashions fo: woman's apparel in America, it If apparent that but little H-adway has been thus far gained by movement. The colors, the com hinations and the materials are all rl'stinctly Kiench; they are decidedly ' creation of the Paris milliners. The hats are small this year, small i than they have been in 9 long time, but nevertheless they have a 'I'tiet dignity and an elegance a')out them that is somewhat new o the; Mitall hat.

FIRST SIGHT SEASON'S DAINTIES The Various Shapes That Prevail Of fer a Wide Range of Design and Trimmings Particular Designs That Are Admired. No less nttractive than the others was the showing at P. Oarber's and the same conditions prevailed as to tbe numbc- of attendants on this event so dear to the feminine heart, the first sight of the season's dainti est fabrics and pretty headwear. The store was made beautiful in appropriate decorations; a touch ot color here and there and an artistic arrangement of the goods in the show windows and on the counters, that added much to the natural interest in the things that were being shown. The small hats seemed to prevail, although there are a number of the extremely large ones still in vogue. The Tam O'Shanter and small round shapes show in excellent favor, and these are made to fit the head as nearly as it is possible. This effect requires 0 special care in the dress ing of the hair to suit the hat. Small sailor shapes with straight brims, and the elongated designs are the smart ones for early wear. These are simple in their tailored effects and this simplicity accounts in a meas ure for their popularity. The leg horns are the thing in the extreme large hats. However, the simplicity which prevail is not hampered by any scarcity of variety of artlctio designs and colorings. With a multi plicity of ribbons and flowers and shapes of every conceivable form none need conform to any set dosign. The artistic w hich has been developed in the trimmings will furnish all that is needed in the assembling should a special taste be manifested by any individual. The leading colors are Bulgarian, rose, purple, tan and Japan green, and the most favored trimmings for the larger chapes are flowers, which are of an unusually attractive charac ter this season. And a charming fea ture of this decoration is that the flowers can be placed any place at any position and there will be noth ing incorrect about it. One of tie specially beautiful de signs which excited a great deal of admiration was a large picturesque model shepherdess "shape, mado of black moline with a loose fold of the same and a crown of plaited moline. The only trimming was an injmense bunch of American beauty rcses, drooping a trifle over the back 1-rim. Another model was a large leghorn trimmed w'th a bow of Oriental shad ed ribbon 10 the side, backed with two rows of plaited lace around the crowd caught on either side with shaded roso buds and foliage under neath, competed with a frill of lace around the brim, and a bandau of white moline studded with rose buds. Still another one of the prettiest ones was a cunning small shape of real fine quality black chip, faced un derneath with Nell rose chif fon. The only trimming was two small Nell rose feath ers in shape of interrogation points going out from the back of the crown. NO VERDICT BY THE STAGGS JURY Early thin morning the jury in the Staggs case reported to the court that it had not been able to agree at a veridct during the night. Judge Tur ner instructed them to go to the jury room for further consideration, and at 2:30 o'clock in the afternoon no further report had been made. In the report n the morning there was no indication as to how the jury stood. Judge W. B. Turner will 'other Maury county cases will be 'heard and the Maury county docket render i continued until completed. his decision in the application of Norman Batts for bail when the Staggs case is decided.
