TWO f IHt hVENlNG GAZEITE No Belt or Sash in Latest Modes Silhouette of Straight Lines Makes Impression by , Lack of Curves. It is evident H:hat many cherished fads are vanishii^g. Some of the styles already established are being exag­ gerated and translated, and some dew extrem es are predicted, says a Paris correspondent in the New York Times. In dress there is no longer Anything in a name. A blouse, according to the latest style, reaches to the knees. This Is one of the conspicuous novelties shown for autumn. Ever since the normal waistline be-' gan to be dropped, the belt, or the line supposed to indicate it, has been completely erased, and now the straight silhouette is s t r a i g h t in d e e d . T h a t which we called a tunic a y e a r ago was a curveless overdress tliat was at least slightly held in about the low waistline. In the models of ad­ vance styles there' appears not a sug­ gestion of belt or sash; there is just the curveless line to the knee and be­ low, and it is labeled an overbhmse. It is a trying style and is becoming only to a very S'lhn figure, though it likely will be worn by many others. Necessarily, the skirt over which this blouse is worn will be straight and narrow, and Paris says shoii;—al­ most as short as the just-beiow-the- knee length that was so startling when it Uiade its appearance several sea­ sons ago. The skirt in oLLer types of gowns is to be fuller. . Some skirts will he full, some extremely 1 oufi'ant, and in oth­ ers the effect of fuHnv.ss will -be gained With flounces, gathered, plaited or cir­ cular. The circular flounce and the circular skirt are so graceful and give such a piquant effe<*t that they are ex- » pected to have a vogue. Circular Shaping of Materials. The circular shaping of materials is particularly attractive in gowns of crepe, chiffon, voile and all the other soft stuffs. Such gowns are charming when cut in points as they attach to the skirt foundation, and they flutter and swirl as one walks. It is the single design among the new models that has a universal appeal, for the gradttated fullness and the points are quite as flattering to the lady of embonpoint as to her of the sylphlike form. In the flounced frocks the bodice in- Tariably extends, as heretofore, to the hips, giving the soft effect, now popu­ lar, of an uncorset ed figure. It is ■without darts or other details and is sometimes drawn tigiitly around and ^wrinkled below the waist. From the point of the hips, and in some styles from the knees, the plaited or frilled | bias ruffles fall. Evening gowns done in this manner are enchanting when made in the fragile silk and metal . laces. Doucet has beautiful dinner gowns in th i s m o d e an d a d o r n s som e o f t h e m •with b e a d an d jew e le d em b r o lderj-. Drecoll, too, is using the flaring flounce, and Redfern has created some things of marked distinction for evening wear, making the most artistic combi­ nations of metal tissue anti lace. Noth- tain* by the vogue of the “period\’ gown, for the full skirts and tight-fit­ ted little bodices can be built in only this manner. These, in dancing frocks, in costumes for bridesmaids and in gowns for fancy dress affairs, have greatly increased in favor during the past few seasons. Because of them some designers prophesied the re t u r n ^ Of the crinoline, i)erhaps of the hoop- I skirt. Cut things, in a day of sports dress ami no stays, would be a paradox, and they have small chance 1 ever to be used again. Tlie full skirt j stiffened about the botton! or suriply | gathered at the belt makes dem-nd. Uncurled Ostrich Forms Cape on tve- ning Wrap of Carmine Velvet. ing ' could be more beautiful than a ball gown of black Chantilly lace veii- iflg a sheer frosty tissue cloth of sil­ ver and rose. Other houses, notably Chanel and Callot Soeurs, are flouncing their gowns in one way or another. Paul Poiret revels in flounced skirts, mak­ ing them the feature of his frocks of mousseline. I t is predicted that we . shall see many variants of this type ol gown for all occasions. Paul Poiret is an ardent advocate of the normal waistline. His lighter frocks are belted at the waist. Some of his prettiest models, one in particu­ lar of organdie, are ruffled from the belt flown and have ruffles in bertha shape atop a bodice -with a slightly oval and youthful neckline. Mme. Yionnet, with Jean Patou and others of equal pres­ tige, Is quite firm in her championship of the high—that is, the natural— waistline. Norwal Waistline to Return.

Naive as some of these models appear, they have apparently come to stay. One feature of tlie prevailing fash­ ions that are shown in some of the models of the season is the ostrich- feather trimming. Its popularity dur­ ing the winter swept the novelty into extravagant display, and no one thought it would last. But the cou­ turiers of Paris found such delightful ways of introducing ostrich that it is already on its way in many enchant­ ing colors and forms. A graded ostrich, the willowy strand.s of which are cut different lengths, is one of the handsomest trim­ mings yet slanvn. It is light as a sum­ mer cloud, delicate and caressing, and gives to a gown the most fairylikefref- fect. It is especially lovely in ^he evening models, the tulles, chiffons and tissues, and in shimmering silks made dazzling with brilliants. A slen­ der hand of this ostrich trimming fringes the eclge of circular flounces and draperies and results in the most airy and fantastic things imaginable. Llost of the prominent designers are using ostrich in some way on their dressier gowns and wraps. M artial et Armiind bands a satin evening coat deei> ■with o s tr i c h a n d fo r m s a oollair of it. Poiret is using the lightest thistledown ostrich on his evening gowns, and he is a past m aster in the art of fashioning bouffant frocks. Molyneux is doing some successful dinner gowns in the straight silhouette In which he introduces contrasting col­ ors with the deep ostrich fringe. One of his last models, a fringe of knotted o s tr i c h , made jiaff as silk fringe is made, is shown under the edge of the crepe skirt drapery. Life of Ostrich Trimming. W hether ostrich for trimming and ■wraps will last cannot be foreseen, ]>ut it is a lovely novelty. It is dyed in the most entrancing colors; in the glowing red named flame, in coral, apricot, orange and every other known shade of yellow; in purples, orchidl, mauve, lavender and violet. Along ■with the ostrich the exclusive shops are offering marabou in many colors. Nothing could be more lovely than a silver-white tissue bordered with coral marabou, or gilt tissue wTh brilliant orange. A simple dancing frock of silver gauze shot with green is translated into a ■work of art with bands and fringe of jade-green ostrich. W hether these colors will endure through the season it is not possible to predict, for Paris changes her color mood about once every fortnight. To­ day black and white is extremely smart, and beige is equally fashion­ able. Much white ostrich tipped with black and beige dipped in flame is shown in the handsomer gowns of satin, crepe chiffon and the tinted laces. Chic and ornamental things In in­ formal footwear are seen, Poudolr slippers, mules of satin and silk, are embroidered or hand-painted and are trimmed with artificial flo^wers, lace or ribbon rosettes and ostrich feath­ ers. The fancy for classic designs is seen in some of the new jewelry, particu­ larly in earrings, which are shown In most exaggerated styles. There are maskfe of gold suspended from slender chains; there are figures such as ap­ pear on old Greek or Egyptian pot­ tery. Such ornamentation is trying to any but a woman of distinctly classic type. Other ear decorations consist of large rings, balls and oblongs of semi­ precious stones hung from chains to touch the shoulder. These are so ex­ treme among the other wild fancies in jeweled eairrings as to foreshadow th4 fashion of no earrings at all in a short tinje, for this is the history of styles.

It is the coffee cocktail, a breakfast appetiser which seems to he gaining a growing popularity helotv the Mason-Dixon lino. Southern railroads and southern hostelries serve it as a demi-tasse. Several of the dining car services place it before each passenger who enters the car for breakfast, irre­ spective of -what his order may be. A number of the famous hotels of the South make a special feature of it -with a waitress assigned to do nothing but look attractive and pour black coffee into each guest’s demi-tasse cup as soon as seated. Served at Breakfast “The coffee cocktail made a hi^ ■with me,’’ remarked a Ne^w Yorker W’-ho had just returned from a‘ busi­ ness trip through the South. “In the dining room of a New Orleans hotel 'at breakfast, the 'w aiter brought me a demi-tasse before passing me a menu card. The same thing was repeated in a hotel at Mobile and at another in Bir­ mingham. Between New Orleans and New York I had three occa­ sions to order breakfast on a diner, and all three times a coffee cock­ tail was served, “In my enthusiasm, I mentioned it to three gentlemen in Atlanta who had been traveling through the southern territory. One of them said that ■when stopping in Shreveport, -La., a coffee cocktail was served to him in his room. Another mentioned that he had one served to him on a diner between Dallas and New Orleans, and the third had enjoyed coffee cocktails on two other southern railroads.” FOREROSURE OPPORTUNITY Briok rowrteiuial at 715 West Main, may be purchased w th small amount ot cash, subject' to present biUIding a n d lo a n m o r t ­ gage.

Bpitlsh Women on RaUro^ds^- Nearly 80,000 women' are erapjoyed by the railways of the United King­ dom. Of this total the majority, of course, are employed in clerical work. A c-onsiderable number, however, are engaged in work not usually done by •\Tomen. Nearly 100 are eihployed as laborers and a thousand more are classed as “mechanics and artisans.” There are women signalmen, station- master^, foremen, policemen, engine cleaners, oilers and greasers, and at least one who is engaged in the dan­ gerous and arduous work of a switch­ man. CarrieS It Too Far. Soine one asked Profevssor Steinach of Vienna, whose rejuvenation ‘experi­ ments are widely k n o w n , if there wasn’t considerable danger in the process. “Of course, the thing can be overdone,” he replied with a smile. “I am told that a w o m a n m e t a friend of hers on the street wlipeling a perambu­ lator in which sat a chubby infant. ‘I did n o t k n o w you had a baby,’ said the first woman in surprise. ‘I haven’t,’ replied the other despondently. ‘This is my husband—he has been to Doctor Steinach.”—Boston Transcript.

Deacon Hornbluwer heard that the apple crop was likeljv to be a water- haul that year because of threatened invasions by pests. To the other apple' growers assembled he said, solemnly, as he started to kneel down: “L e t us pray.” But Ike H a n lb o y le took his hat and Started out of the room, saying: “Let us spray.” Moral—Faith without work is dead. —^Farm Life.
