ere the very latest thing, and I aim sending
yoa several of those that I consider tho
best. In one of theso you will Imme
diately notlco, J am sure, not only tho won
derful display of paradise, but the very odd
and original manner in which tho pretty
wearer has arranged nor pearls.
Of course you have not forgotten my
warning of a fow weeks ago that poarl
are the only Jewels a woman can wear In
tho daytime, and that so long as a woman,
wears a pearl necklaco she Is well dressod,
but she must not wear thorn Q the con
ventional manner. No matter how eho
woars them, she must nevor put them
around her neck In the way they are sup
posed to bo. This is emphatic.
This little beauty has heeded my words,
and has her pearls wound round her hat
and caught up tinder her chin In a most

tulle built on a wire framo, and of courso
Is perfectly transparent. Tho tulle and
the paradise aro black.
Bomo of the Lopk-Through hats have no
crowns. Tho top of the head takes tho
place of a tulle crown, and when this is
well dressed the effect is very good indeed.
Ono of tho most curious hats that I bavo
seen for a long time is' the second model.
It Is a bat within a hat. But it is all of
iullo. The Inner bat Is of silvery tulle or
maline, and the outer bat Is a series of
scant' frills of black maline. The ospreys
at the back are black. In this case tho
debutante wearer has her pearl necklaco
arranged In the conventional manner, be
cause she is a debulante;
One of the hats shown Is of tho crown
less kind. The wide or rather deep brim Is
merely fold on fold of tho tulle, edged at
top and bottom with a frill of tho same.
This hat Is created In a brilliant cerlso.
The broad paradise is black. Really It Is
absolutely necessary this year that these
tulle hats have some black in their com
position. This Is a very girlish model, and
the fichu worn adds to the girlish effect.
I particularly like tho model with
the transparent brim, that is nothing mora
nor less than a wide frill or ruffle of black
maline. The crown in this case Is light
blue satin, for this Is in reality a dress
hat There is nothing lovelier nor mora
becoming for the face than these frills of

A distinctly different but a very smart
bat is the model with the foundation
for the brim of fine straw. The crown Is
rose satin, the brim Is black and the frills

the ospreys are black. While this hat Is
one of my favorites, I still find it difficult
