NEW YORK , March 0. 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.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
In delicate , charming hats woven of fine
grass with straw. One virtue of the grass
hat Is that It can bo ciushed Into n ball
between the hands nnd yet smoothes out into
ns gracious , shapely a helmet ns wns over
puom. 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. Perfect scraps of
capotes will show 'Just ono giant lilac
orchid , rising from a skim of tulle or
tangle of ribbon.

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.

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.

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
-J N - . - , - * > -
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
The capo jasmine , as every one who has
visited the south knows , is easily grown , and
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
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.
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
* & 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. A young
man nnd a young woman , by a strange co
incidence , nro always meeting nt friends'
houses , or they happen to meet nt pagoda
fenstn or at pwes , or native performavces ,
and people begin to remark the coincidence
and say things ; and when the maiden
Is Interrogated on the point she probably
blushes. 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.
