Tlio spring pageant In millinery la opening most propitiously , nnd with full n , score of novelties. Tlio first-corners In the shop windows nro always the walking ntul travelIng - Ing , gollling and shopping straws , and there Is not n poaslbly unbecoming shape In the lint. lint.A style that commands attention is the golfers' treasure , with a stiff cream straw nlplno crown and a brim of scarlet , or plaid , or tan brown felt , bound with a broad gros grain ribbon. A wing and twist of silk , era a belt of gros grain ribbon , drawn through n gay enameled biicklo nt one side Is the typo of trimming advocated. Thcso com fortable , sensible llttlo hats won't out-rival , though , the Inevitable straw Bailer , which Is already bobbing up serenely In a now guise. Mixed straw Is what the host sailor Is woven of , and a good , pliable , fine straw at that , to allow of rather wider brims and very muoh larger , lallcr crowns than wo have had In a long time. Noveltleit for AVnlKlnn Wi-nr. A great many of the prettiest outing hats are In an exaggerated sailor slmpo ami madu to bo trimmed. . Tholr tall crowns are higher behind than before , and the decoration Is done in Bwatttngs and luoplngs of brilliant taffeta , with wings or quills. There Is another sort of very captivating sailor In the newly arrived millinery stock called the "Canadian. " Just why Canadian It Is bard to say , for the name does not describe Ha low crown with a hollowed tnp , Its wide brim that curls up on the edges and Its crown band nearly as white as the crown Itself. A Canadian is sure to provo n tip top sun-shade , and you can buy It In a straw as fine and as soft as Panama. Next in order of merit Is the done-over , revivified Alpine , which you can have In 1ho smart Ilomburg or Cape Town shape. A Ilomburg is a pearl gray felt affair with n wide , unusually wide , curly brim sweeping away from a lofty crown and rejoicing in a decoration of gray , or gold , or green cock plumes In a thick tuft to one side. A Capo Town shape Is exactly the same thing with the difference that on one side .the wide brim Is drawn up and made fast by a tuft of quills , whllo itlie other side of the brim bends down over the face nnd hair. DI-CKM Hut * . To turn from a counter full of tilings jaunty ami itaut Is to arrive at a showcase full of the small straw toques and bonnets that will prevail later on. You can match In a straw toque any gingham or muslin In your summer repertory of gowns , BO various are the colors of the straws , and , best of all , you can vary nearly afford -to have a 'hat ' to match every cotton dress , Blnce thcso stray topknots are not expen sive , raid they need the merest handful of trimming. Some of , them are self-trimmed with their own eccentric , twisted brims , knots and rolls and loops of straw , and they all have names. The Trelawmey , Lady May nnd dozens moro are liot fav'orltes among the buyers , who have 'to wear these trifles back on thalr ihcads and wear with them 'tho gaye-st of veils , Moro serious consideration , also a higher price , must be paid the last Parisian fancy A SMART NEW SHAPE.

All the tender minor colors of the natural grasses , the greens , browns , greys , yellows and dull reds are thus made fashlon- nble , nnd In the way of spring color there Is nothing moro admired than "cured hay green. " Flowers to pile with ribbons on thcso straw foundations nro coming in rapidly , and there seems n perfect madness for using Just emi or two abnormally big blossom's in lint architecture , In place of natural looking clusters and sprays.

MAttY DKAN. T01LKT HUM'S. DcvlcPM AVIilfli Knnlilc Women io Si'cnru Mrimiire of lloimt } ' ' Society has quietly accepted the fact ot late that rouge Is do rigour. The tint Is Itild on so delicately , so artfully , so plausi bly , that It requires not only a lynx eye to detect It , but a long acquaintance with a woman to make sure she doea not resort to this artifice. Her cheeks nro never vulgarly red , but a faint sweet bloom ap pears on either side and seems to come from beneath , to grow down Into the chin nnd show ever so faintly nlong the rim of the pretty ears. This Is all duo to the fact that grease paint la not uscxl at all ; It is too loud In tone and coarsening to the skin to bo tolerated ; furthermore , a clever wojnan never looks upon the rouge pot when It Is red until she has made a visit to a certain dealer In toilet articles In Paris. At this small shop , n , sort of Louis XIV boudoir , you buy : v pot ot coloring matter on a disk of porcelain , nnd a small tool covered with whlto cotton. The pot ot coloring matter does not cost very much , but what does come high is the ' preliminary business of having' tint of pink matched to your skin. The IJlvInc Artlnt. It was the owner of this shop who made the great discovery that nature , the divine artist , rarely colors two persons alike , and that the true pink glowing In the cheeks of ono 'blonde or dark person Is not at all tbo same that glows In the cheeks of that person's own sister , perhaps. So In that llttlo shop you sit before a mirror and a patient artist selects , after repeated trials , the color that harmonizes exactly -with your particular quality of skin , glint ot hair nnd tone of eyes. There arc exactly sixty-five pinks to choose from , and when you leave the shop you wear a blush ns faint or deep as your typo of looks require , and ono su exactly harmonizing that It absolutely rd- sembles what you would have If nature undertook to do the coloring herself. H is tbo matching that costs and then the shop woman gives you a lecture on the rational use of rouge. She explains that to thoroughly deceive the eye it Is not suffi cient merely to tint the cheeks , because when by natural circulation of rich blood the cheeks glow the. chin over so lightly gets a bit of the rosy fluid as well ; so do the cars on the rim , nnd when you have taken ono lesson in touching up your face there Is no suspicion of vulgar , sticky painter or artificiality about It. .Vow Ili-inily Hevleo . All this New York women have learned In 'arlsjust ' as thol'arislenne has Impressed on them the Importance of carrying a powder puff In the muff or pocket and using It rrccly. In Paris they make these puffs of palo pink down , fastened In the center of n dear llttlo palo silk handkerchief. By means of a draw-string the middle of the iinndkerchief gathers about the puff and no scattering of rice powder comes of wearing the pretty thing in your pockot. Kvory woman who realizes how unbeautiful is the look of a shiny nose , or greasy forehead , carries ono of these. The use ot rouge is advocated by many women merely for 'tho ' brilliancy it lends the eyes , but Now York belles do not trust to rouge alone to do this. They liave learned to wash their eyes ns carefully and regularly ns they wash their faces. Kspe- clally In 'tho cold weather , when eyes not over strong grow bloodshot nnd weak from facing a cruel wind , nothing Is BO soothing and tonic as to wash the balls. An eye glass is used for this , filled with warm wate.- , tepid tea or a solution of boric acid , and , when the glass Is filled and upturned on the eyes , nil the dust collected on lashes nnd 'In corners , any bits of soot , or sand grating on 'ttio ' sensitive corners , are ex pelled and inflammation reduced. Besides this benefit , a dally washing of the eyes makes them moro permanently bright nnj liquid 'than ' any other device yet attempted. Oil ot cageput Is 'the newest remedy for Inducing the eyebrows and eyelashes to grow , just ns all thin girls with hollows In' their necks and scrawny forearms have taken to tippling on milk nnd glycerlme. It is a simple remedy and harmless enough , oven It It falls to lay flesh on Ill-covered bonce ; , and U has the nd\antago of not coarsliiR the skin , as drinking porter Is ac cused of doing. Two tenspoonfuU ot llio best glycerine In 11 glass of blood-warm milk , taken after every meal amd nt bedtime , Is the iiilo with the smart young women who ilaro not wear decollete gowns nnd who have found 'It ' very much moro dlllicult to prosuro llesh than their fat sister finds It < o lose ndlposq tissue. I'M Hirer Tlpn mill llnlr. Any ono who comes to New York and gets n enhance to observe at close quarters the pretty women who ornament opera boxes can hardly overlook 'the faot that pretty bare hands no longer show glittering malls at the Ilngef tips , that tde Immaculate fairness of throats anil shoulders Is apparently not duo to powder nor unusual pallor , nnd that nearly every woman has wonderfully bright hair. Well , It simply amounts to this unnatu rally polished linger nails are no longer re garded ns significant of good taste. As much care as formerly Is spout on the mani cure , but to show wonderfully rosy nails with snow whlto nnd beautifully clear curved tops Is the aim of the well-bred beauty. Pink linger nails , as pink cheuks , bright eyes and dinning hair , Indicate health , , and iK'alth Is ono of the highest forms of beauty , so If your nails are palu and blotched with whlto bruises the refuge of n coral fluid remains to you. This Is a species of lacquer painted on the nails' surface , left to dry nnd produce a pretty plnkness that makes the top of the naif look wonderfully white by contrast- As stimulating ns our climate Is to liberty nnd patrlotlbm. It is an agent for almost destroying the texture und vigor of human hair , and after the most robustly healthy girl reaches 20 her hair la too opt to fade. It may not at once turn gray , but the sap that makes It bhlmi dries ) up nnd dull brown heads arc the rule In nn assemblage of even handsome women. Now lifeless hair Is about as unornameutal as false diamonds that refuse to glitter , nnd to correct this the peroxide is admlntbtered to the regeneration of even the must dreary looking tresses , The liquid must bo administered after a thorough shampoo by an expert hair dresser , nnd one tcaspoonful diluted docs the business. Strands as luslcrless as those In a horse's tall It electrifies with a sheen that Bcems only possible to extreme youth. i-Mvn MW CAIII.\.S. ! of ( lie Lute * ! AviicnUiiiiN Kn- lor Ml I'lioti J > y Women , One of the latest of unusual avocations entered upon by n woman Is the raising and training rf native song birds. Miss Louise Cheatnm lives near the popular winter re sort of Alken , S. 0. , nnd the Idea wns sug gested by the sale of a pet mocking bird. This bird came to her through a negro boy whom she caught robbing the parent nrst. The Iledgllng was the weakling of the Hock , and for that reason the boy considered It worthless and left It on tno ground to die. Miss Chcnlam rescued nnd raised It , Intend ing to free the llltlo captive when It could care for Itself. Hut that time never came , for no pet Is moro helpless than a mocking bird reared In captivity. The second winter of the bird's life It wns purchased by a northern visitor to Alkcn , who , chancing- paw the house , heard It singing. This sale gave the young woman an idea which she was not slow to follow and now she does a thriving business with native song "birds of the south. Miss Chea- lam < lees not attempt to hatch them herself , but watching her chance , goes boldly to the spot where the parent birds have made their homes and lifts the nests , with their young broods , off. This Is the best and most hu mane method , especially with the mocking birds , for If a human hand once enters their nest the parent bird will kill every remainIng - Ing fledgling , and according to Miss Cheatam , her greatest enemies are these same parent birds , for they try in every way to poison a bird which they find caged. Beagle raising Is the means by which Miss I -J N - . - , - * > - A COQUETTISH HAT. Asch earns a good living. Her homo Is nlso near Alkcn , and her work began by the sale of a pet dog. One of the favorite amuse ments of the winter visitors to Alken is rabbit coursing , and the best clog for the purpose Is the beagle. As both the game and j the dogs are small , the hunters , men and women , follow on foot , nnd as a rule end their chase by a breakfast or luncheon at some picturesque spot in the woods. It was to one of these hunters that Miss Asch sold her first dog , and the price paid was $35. She at once saw an opening' , had kennels built and invested her little capital In dogs to breed from. Now sbo has a thriv ing business , which not only pays well , but is both healthful and plensnnt , slnco she Is fond of dogs and out-of-door exercise. Another southern woman , Miss Ida Norrcll , near Augusta , On. , Is earning n fall- living by distilling capo Jasmines. The process is her own discovery , and still a secret. She has refused good offers for her recipe. The capo jasmine , as every one who has visited the south knows , is easily grown , and J blossoms in the greatest profusion. Miss Norrcll , therefore , has no difficulty in get ting all the flowers she can use. The result of her distilling is a delicious perfume , but she claims that at present the supply equals the demand , nnd It Is unnecessary to publish her formula. Miss Marie Christiansen came from Sweden to work as n masseurca , but finding no work Immediately took the llrst thing which presented usolf. Today she Is the DINNER DHESS OK WHITE LILA first woman and I fancy the only one who earns her living by exercising dogs. Kvory hmir of her time is occupied airing 'and ex ercising pampered canine pets whose own ers are glad to pny a good price to have It done. Of coureo Miss Christiansen Is obliged to go out In all sorts of weather , and lake 'What , to an American woman , Is an enormous amount of exercise. But being n Swedish girl , It la no more hardship to toke n , promenade on Fifth nvenuo In n driving rain than it U to the two or three dogs that frisk by her side. A California woman , Mrs. Henrietta Mc Donald , claims to bo the only woman who earns a living as a wine tester. She Is the daughter of ono of the most extensive wine producers of California , when wine making first became an Industry of that state , am until her widowhood eho was the wife of ,1 wlno merchant. Consequently when Mrs McDonald came to earn her living wine wns really the only thing she could count on. Through n New York merchant she re ceived her llrst Job. It wns to stock tin wlno cellars of a family moving Into n nc house , ns neither mistress nor master were sufficiently familiar with wine to act for themselves. Now she has a regular client nge In n number of the largest cities of this country , nnd makes trips to the various wlno producing countries of the world from tlmo to time , making direct purchases to fill her many Important orders. A PAHAIHSK FOll WOSIKSf. Ill Iliiriiuili They Are Priu-Uonlly ( lie Superior * of .M Mi. The nurmeso nro different from other eastern women , says a writer In the Ladles Realm. liurmnh Is n woman's paradise. There is no necessity to have women's rights associations. A woman Is the equal of a man. There are no harems , nnd no restrictions to love making , except flirtation and kissing , which nro Indecorous. All the business of llunnnh Is done by the women , ' whllo the men stay at homo to smoke and , mind the babies. Every woman has a shop ' of some sort , and when her husband Is not kind she gets a divorce. She Is probably bettor oft than she was before. Indeed , the Burmese woman has far the best of It. Yet when she goes to the pagoda It Is always ' her wish that In her next existence she will 'bo n man. The Uurmeso woman Is petite , I and , though nt llrst her features seem strange and nro not attractive , you scon get I used to them. Every girl Is nn artist , and 1 she dresses artistically and In bright sunshiny - ; shiny colors. She wears a square , loose- ' llttlng , overlapping white Jacket , short in sleeves. Her frock is a. piece of red or yel low or green silk tied tightly , so that she walks with short , mincing steps. The mold of the figure is distinctly shown , but , as every girl walks with a curious twist of the heel , there Is nothing immodest. In Hurmnh , ns In other lauds , the pride of a girl Is her hair , nnd if It reaches to the ground she has reason to bo conceited. She never wears a bonnet , but there Is al ways n rose or some other flower stuck In the folds of her tresses , She Is fond of jewelry , necklaces , bracelets and rings , but she Is never guilty of showlness. As , In the old days , our grandmothers nnd great- grandmothers used to turn n piece of silver over In the palm of n gypsy to hear about some tall , fair man who would eoon return from a long voyage and make them happy forever and over , so the Burmese girl con sults witches about her future husband , and wears charms which she believes will attract a certain youth. Every Burmese boy la tattooed about the limbs. He knows that no nice girl will look nt him till he has a mass of tattoo designs , for , nmong other things , thcso signify that ho must have undergone much pain and Is therefore n bravo man. Sometimes a girl will have a tattoo mark placed between her eyes. This Is not often , but only when she Is afraid ehe may lose the affections of her beloved. Besides , with this tattoo mark , every girl feels that she cannot possibly die an old maid. But if she has not the mark and there Is a prospect of her being "on the shelf" she will cut away the hair above her ears and this Is a public sign that she would bo Infinitely obliged if somebody would marry her. As soon as she can toddle she starts smok ing. She smokes nil through life and with her last breath will probably puff smoko. A Burmese cheroot Is very mild in flavor , 'but ' It makes amends in size. It Is : iny- thlng from six Inches to a foot In length and so thick that a winsome maiden's mouth Is stretched to the utmost. A cheroot is seldom out of a Burmese girl's mouth , nnd she puffs with the unceasing regularity of nn English girl munching chocolates. I have seen a little Burmese boy slide up to a llttlo girl nnd look sheepishly at her till she offers him n puff at her cheroot , just as a London boy ( will do to his sister who owns an apple. For several people to smoke from the same cheroot is quite the usual thing , and half n dozen girls will sit In a circle chattering nnd passing the torpedo-sized cigar around. When first I went to Bunnah I naturally threw away my cheroot when I had enough. But afterward I always presented It with a bow to some non-smoking Burman , for In Burmah to give some ono else your half- smoked cigar Is as great an honor as in Persia for your host to pick a tit-bit of stewy C AND BLACK SILVER TRIMMING. * & 30P meat from his dish nnd sll < k It Into your mouth with his flngctn. Th"ro Is much juvenile swcothc-artlng nmong the youngsters of Burmah. Hut n girl must give up such nonsense when frht- > reaches 12 or 13 years of nse , for then H Is time for her lo be eerlous nnd give her i thoughts to possibly being soon mnrrlH. I The transition stage In England from girl ' to young woman Is the adoption of long sklrti nnd the "doing tip" of the hair. In Burmnh It la when the ears are pierced. The ceremony Is marked by a great frnst to all her girl friends. The day ami the hour nro fixed by n soothsayer , and then , in the midst of the Jubilation , tie ! girl Is t-olzcd and the needlea run through the lobe of the car , nnd the more she acrcar.is the louder nil her friends clinttor , and the native musicians outside get hot In bang ing doubly hard at their Instruments. A piece of gold wire is usually passoJ 'hrough the ear , but Inter on thicker material Is used until there Is quite a largo hole , maybe half nn Inch In tllnmeter ; and in this the girl or young woman , as she la now -wears a tube , either of gold studded with precious stones , or amber , or. If she Is vry pier , colored glass. After the encoring n Uurmeso girl begins to put on nlra. Love-making In Mandnlny Is very much the same as It Is In Dayswnter.

When It is understood the couple are to be married the young man Jon love making In the evening , but he never eecs his sweetheart alone. She has always three o-r four girl friends with her , anj so all the nlco things ho wants to say must be said in their presence. Frill * of Kiinhloti. Hand-painted satin and muslin gowns are coming Into vogue. Handles In the shape of golf Irons are the latest for canes and umbrellas. Exquisite tea gowns are being made of white dotted Swiss over wash silks In pale tints. A pretty lorgnette chain has a series of Jewels set at Intervals of from three to four Inches. Coral necklaces with many silver novel ties suspended therefrom are attractive for street wear. Among now designs In brooches Is a four- leaf clover with green enameled petals and a ruby for the center. Marquise rings with emerald centers , the outer edges studded with diamonds and ru bles are In great favor. Collar buckles of silver and gold for women are popular. Some nro enameled nnd studded with gems. Sterling silver match safes in the shape of peanuts with the colors of the well known colleges in enamel arc popular. An opal matrix mosaic jewel box lined with gold forma n handsome and attractive ornament for a woman's boudoir. Double veiling Is now considered very smart. It is made of the finest plain or dotted black net nnd has n lining of white Illusion tulle. The effect Is to heighten the beauty of the wearer's complexion. Clasps , so that ribbon belts may bo easily Interchangeable , have almost superseded belt buckles. The newest are of silver , glided with a dull , reddish finish , and with thcso pressed velvet ribbon Is used. If the signs of the times arc to bo trusted perforated cloth Is to bo much worn. This does not mean that perforated strips nro sown on , but the skirt or bodice Is cut out and the perforated design then carried out. A color Is put under the perforations. For "dress" uses very handsome princesso dresses of black crepe do rhino nro made up over taffeta silk and decorated from shoul der to hem with long tapering sprays of the finest cut Jet applique ornaments In scroll , fern , bowknot , stem and vine devices deftly Intermingled. A new idea Is to disguise ( the existence of any collar band nt all and to carry the yoke Itself In whatever fashion it may bo made up to the chin. Indications point to the reign of the plain or simply rolled collar In the immediate future , nnd It Is said that chiffon nnd lace ears nnd tabs and bows nro There seemed n probability that the prin cesso dross , which in velvet , cloth nnd Ighter wool fabrics has boon in vogue nil winter , would lose n degree at least of Its 'avor this season , but the universal prova- once of clinging gowns and straight effects s likely to keep this graceful , much 1m- iroved model In favor for some time to come.

There are also heavier embroidered bands and edgings , which closely copy venlso-polnt patterns , o bo nbollahed from the nape of the neck.

A now attractive black material will ap pear for early summer wear under the name of crcponetto. It differs but slightly from the now invoices of spring crepons , yet It Is moro beautiful In coloring and moro char acteristic In design. A silk-warp material called Cruzon cloth will also appear.
