FOR EASTER FINERY Latest Ideas at Home and Abroad. HENRIETTAS REAPPEAR SKIRTS ARE VERY WIDE AND WAISTS DRAPED. Hair Nets for the New Coiffures-Other Things That Are Worth Noting. Written for The Sunday Star. Of the large variety of fabrics shown this season it cannot be said that any one is really the leader. A half hundred might be named, all with equal claim to popular favor, but there is no doubt that silks do and will play a most important part in the wardrobes for spring and summer. White and delicate colors in chiffon taffetas are made up in simple shirt waist suits for ordinary afternoon wear and the gleaming satin foulards. in plain and fancy effects, are developed into the loveliest of afternoon. reception and restaurant gowns. One of the smartest of the new importations in this delightful fabric shows a large brown dot on a deep cream ground. The skirt is fitted over the hips with numerous tucks widening out to extreme fullness at the hem. Three deep flounces, cut in wide, circular form, are set on with fine tucks to a third of their depth, headed and bound with brown satin. Huge pines of cream filet guipure are set into the skirt and flounces, crossing and holding them down. the silk being cut away and plain brown satin laid under. The corsage is extremely ornate, being draped over a closely fitted lining kept supple with featherbone. The silk is drawn tightly about the waist, in girdle fashion, blousing slightly above. A deep shoulder yoke of lace is applied over brown satin, with a couple of quarter circles set in low over the bust. Above this is an open vest, the edges of which are bound with brown velvet, showing a high featherboned chemisette of fine white lace. The big sleeve puffs are drawn in above the elbow with folded cream ribbon. and below two ruffles of fine lace fall over a short band cuff of the guipure over brown satin, the long wrinkled glovEs 'being slipped tinder. The hat worn with such a costume must, of course, harmonize. In this case it is of cream horsehair braid set on the frame in ruffles, with brown tulle folds on the underbrim. a long plume shading from cream to brown laid around the brim. An invisible net adjusted over milady's well-arranged coiffure keeps each hair in perfect order, a face veil being out of the question with a hat of large size. How things have changed! A short while ago milady covered her face with two veils to pro)tect tier complexion. but now she disdains even one, preferring to protect her coiffure instead with a coiffure net, tint as a spider's thread. Made of Taffeta. In taffeta frocks. besides the plain little shirt waist suits before mentioned, there are larisian costumes showing more elaboration than ever, yet simplicity of idea obtains in all There are some charming models in the new blue, a cross between the real true' lI' and the curntlower, tile latter being very trying to some complexms. The color artists have so ble'nded this that the new color has a widr range of possiilitIes. But one must be sure of gettincg jist tle right shad,. for there are very many similar. lacking the soft pastellike ton of this new shade. Itrunett-s with brown or gray eyes can wear it; and to bloindes with blue and even dark gray (yes it gives a soft. transparent glow. A pretty silk warp henrietta in this color had a louseil waist gathered in under a deep folded girdli of matched silk. Fancy taffeta. shaded in several tones of the same color and tine bars of black, was closely gather.d iim ao a square sort of breast plate on the hust, deep yokes going over the shoulders donie in the same way, the square front res4ulting. being tilled with a chemiscite of white hve. a very deep stock of the fan'y silk tucked and a band of lace let in in poInts around the throat. The sleeves were v.ry full puffs to the elbow, with two bands of the shirred silk let in to the A BTTK AND 1 M~ny of the spring costumes are made i as a waist or over the fashionable flngerie b course, necessary that such a waist be Aniel Hecre wvlienne i. the new vinoline shade is below the hip line, and a trimming of interl coat is a very deep girdle egfect, over which tbe elbew ecO are et breedcith, ad a che ,slippedu in i:h.a the ena is worm as a weisM mitaine cuffs of the henrietta, wmh was tucked around the arm. The skirt had & graduated front panel of the shirred silk. the deep flounces set on to the knee depth decorated with ruches of the henrietta and matching lace, these terminating at the edgies of the panel. Lingerie Petticoats. Fashion decrees that lingerie petticoats, all fluffy with lace or daintiest embroidered muslin, shall be worn under silk gowns. But on the other hand silk slips are to be worn under linen and other wash dresses, these being so inset with lace and open embroidery that the effect of colored silk gleaming through will be extremely chic. Another pretty idea is the use of pompadour slips under transparent plain colored materials, this giving the effect of the most delicate handpainting, changeable and elusive in appearance. Such a toilet was of white silk gauze with fine white satin stripe, the slip having a design in garlands or roses tied with blue ribbons on a ground of palest mauve. The skirt was made with several narrow flounces festooned on, tiny blue ribbon being run between narrow ruches that trimmed the flounces. The corsage was full over a decollete lining of the silk, the gauze shirred to the throat. The brief elbow sleeves, ending in ruffles, were tied with soft, wide blue ribbon, which also composed the crushed girdle, with featherbone strips used as necessary supports in sides, back and front. Another charming gown was of cream silk mull in a delicate tea rose pattern. The skirt had two deep flounces to the knees. the mull tucked and edged with embroidered mull, from which fell a deep flounce of cream lace. The bodice was tucked and arranged in surplice effect over a vest of pale green chiffon, the deep girdle being of silk to match, as was also the slip skirt and fitted bodice lining. The slip had a wide band of princess haircloth laid in the hem of the slip to hold out the soft full dress with its many yards of fluffiness at the feet. Smart Rain Coats. "March winds and April showers bring forth" some very smart rain coats. Of the many styles the one most favored by the smart girl is the simple, perfectly tailored English coat, which can be had not only in coverts and mixtures, but also in the lightest of silk and silk and wool materials. These coats are cut full in the skirt, with easy-fitting waists and gracefully shaped belts, th.a sleeves being large and roomy enough to prevent crushing of the daintiest blouse. Most of these coats have the very suitable relief of velvet collars and cuffs. An additional note of trigness is added in the natty patent coltskin boots or. shiny leather Oxfords, and dainty spats which protect the delicate gauze stockings that match the costume. There are really so many little items to be considered in the details of correct dress that one must be constantly on the lookout to keep up to date. The new hats, for instance, have necessarily made changes In coiffure necessary, and many mistakes will be made till every woman realizes the fact that if she dresses her hair as it is most becoming to her features, and then selects the hat that sets well on this coiffure, she will be surely au fait. The deep regular wave has gone out with the round pompadour. The locks are now done in big natural-looking waves, and arranged in bandeaux over the brow and back from the temples; and for those who dare, puffs or curls low at the back. Every woman should study her features and the effect of different arrangements from every point of view. then adhere to the style that suits her best. Turn Up Ten Inches. Some of the new hats turn up ten or twelve inches at one side or the back, and tilt down in front. A little bandeau at the front or side, where most necessary, lifts the hat enough from the head to prevent crushing the coiffure. These blustering spring days. when the wind and one's headgear are so much at variance, bring no qualms to the woman who protects her locks with the invisible hiir net. Pretty combs also find their plaice :n the new coiffure, as the tremen(Tous flare of the hats makes the (re-ssing of the hair of quite as much importance as the- chapenux, be they large or small. The new hats are generally the latter, some often just the little polo turban with a plume of feathers at the side, perch(d jauntily at the top of the head. Finnigin Filosofy.

GO ABOUT IT SENSIBLY ADOPT A SYSTEX AND ABIDE BY IT. Takes Time and Gives Trouble, But Results Will Pay You. Most men think that spring cleaning is an utterly unnecessary evil. From their standpoint-it is a process designed simply to make every room in the house as uncomfortable as possible, to cause the loss of many treasured possessions, to produce unappetizing picnic meals and to continue this sort of thing until patience and endurance alike are strained to the utmost. Women know better. The feminine idea of spring cleaning is to make every corner of the house as fresh, as clean, as orderly, as comfortable and as artistic as possible. I am obliged to admit that, while this is the idea aimed at, the methods employed for its realization are often so misguided as to give the enemy an excuse for saying evil things. Every good housekeeper knows that after the smoke and dust' of winter there comes a -time when the returning 'sunshine tells with vivid truthfulness a tale of woe.. She finds curtains dusty, carpets and rugs dirty, dullness where polish should be, and even cobwebs are to be found in high places in the best regulated households, since no house is so exalted as to scare the ubiquitous spider from maldng his home in some out-of-the-way corner. Now, there is spring cleaning as it should be and as it should not be. In the last estate method is not given a moment's thought. The unmethodical housekeeper wakes up on a fine, bright, sunshiny spring morning and, after ali inspection of the curtains and hangings, announces to the bewildered servants and members of the household that she really must begin cleaning. Tomorrow sees the beginning of the campaign; no preparation beforehand, no plan, no gathering together of necessary Implements for the extra work, no arranging of meals, no determination that if. as will happen in even well-ordered households, a great rush must be made to get through a certain amount of work in a given time there may be an oasis in the desert of brooms and pails to which the.returning breadwinner may retire sure of rest and undisturbed peace. Have Some Method. There may be method in the madness of the spring household upheaval by which many of the attendant horrors are avoided. An orderly preparation is certainly the first and foremost move. I am not writing for those happy householders who can summon an army of cleaning people to do.the work and in a day or two have a good-sized house immaculately clean or the fortunate few who go away and leave the work of renovation to experienced servants and vome back to find the domestic wilderness blossoming as the rose. Rather am I offering a few suggestions about preparing the house for the sipring cleaning time to the mistress of the modeet establishment, who, with the aid of a maid, will see that everything is orderliness itself. Before beginning this disagreeable task it is well to plan a few simple menus for several days ahead so that cooking may be reduced to a minimum. A ham or tongue deliciously cooked is good to rely upon as the piece de resistance. Then. teo, an extra large bread or cake baking will admit of "baking day' being skipped for once, and no one will be the wiser. Stock carefully provided will help for soup making, and a jelly or two can be depended upon to supply the sweet course. In some cases it may be found easier to have tinned things ready for emergencies an , to buy bread. Room for Energy. Now the strenuous days may begin in earnest, and the housewife is fancy free to expend her energy on the overhauling of closets, pantries and odd corners. The linen closet should claim first attention, and should be carefully gone over and stock taken of the supplies. Silver should be counted and the best plate, which is only used on state occasions, taken from its hiding place and cleaned. Of course, the plate in actual service in a well-run household has bc en kept in good condition by a weekly rubbing, but twice a year it is an excellent idea to give it an extra bath by putting the articles in boiling water, to which has been added a heaping han..,ul of hartshorn powder. This treatment is especially advisable for silver or pited dish covers, entrce dishes and the like, as it frees them from lots of unbrushed plate powder which In the ordinary cleaning it is difficult th dislodge. The grease given off by the steam from the food is best removed by this boiling method, for even the most careful servant hrr washing up is apt to take little heed of this accur-ulation. The china closets are next "n cleaning routine and, like the plate, glass and china should be overlooked, replenished when necessary and1 put away, to be brought out in shining splendor when the closet itself has been attended to. The kitchen Is likewise gone over and a careful note taken of "what is wanted.' All this work may be done in a quiet mannier. without making a dlomestic eart hujuake, before the spring cleaning comes round. Weeding Out. Now the general weeding out of the lumbe: room, cupboards and bureau drawers is next on the program and may be accomplished quietly, with the advantage of. space gained for storage, and pleasure may b~e bestowed at the same time upon "the poor at the gate" from castaway garments. And just a word about these eaastaways. It would be well If every housekeeper made it a rule each spring to see what wearing apparel can be utilized, carefully cleaning. labeling and putting away what she can use, giving away or destroying what is no longer worthy of keeping. Remember that things which to you, with a -comfortable income, seem shabby and useless may to poor people make just the difference between privation and comfort. An old Scotch saying tells us that "scrapings of the muckle pot make the wee pot full." When you have decided what to give away and have followed the laudable method of saving bits ot various articles of clothing, sort them out, pinning the appropriate pieces to the little outgrown dresses and shabby suits your girls and boys can no longer wear. Put a card or two of mending wool with the flannel g'arments, see that some kind of buttons are on each garment before it Is sent away, and you will find no lack of grateful recipients. Shake All Clean,. All the woolen garments to be stored should be thoroughly brushed and- beaten in the open aIr, well aired and looked over and then folded into convenient sized parcels. Dust them freely with any insecticide yoi please and sew them up carefully in old pieces of linen or cotton sheets as tightly as possible. Labtly, wrap them In sheets of new brown paper, folding the edges closely together and fastening them down securely with strong glue so that there will be no chance of moths creeping in. Treated in this way you will find your belongings in 'perfect condition for next winter's wear. Blankets and all washable flannels not required for use should be cleaned at the home laundry or sent to a cleaner's and then put away in- the same manner, but remember that when storing goods in this way the whole secret of success lies in the care with 'which the packing is done. Furs may be treated like the clothes just mentioned, switching and airing them well before packing-them In linen and brown- paper. This is the method .follo'wed by the best furriers for the summer storage of their goods. Another Way. A number o2~earefu people advocate the plan of never ruely putting winthigs W el: Lit -- . b . -f till SXART COSTUXE 4 Of dull gobelin blue, soft, fine cloth Is thi trimimed in scroll design with gathered ribbo: har. tht flounces gathered on cords, with anoth, skirl.

Having, then, rid yourself of rubbish and tidied up all drawers, cupboards and wardrobes In a quiet manner, without fuss of ny kind, the next move Is to see that brushes, brooms, mops, duisters and old silk handkerchiefs, are at hand; that rags for rubbing poli::h onl, that soft soap, metal polish, borax, turpe.ntine, ammonia, whiting, bathbrick and emery are all in their accustomed places, so that the work may go on without continual worry because this or that absolutely necessary thing is not where :t should he. if the suggestions offered for the spring preparation of cleaning are followed I shall not have written Iin vain, even if there are hiose who perhaps consider that they know their own needs best. Recognition by Cane Taps. 'rom the l'hiblelphia Reord. T'he degree to which the remaining senses can be trained when the sight Is lost was il-iustrated the other morning by two blind nen from the home at 36th street and Lancaster avenue. The men came fror# opposite direc-tions, and as they approached each another man tandmng on the corner was surprised to hear one of the blnd men say, "Hello. Ed; what are you doing out this morning?" When the blind man was asked how he had known the other with a distance of five yards between them he answered: "By he sound of his cane, of course. I can tell at the distance. of half a square the tap of the cane of any man in the home." Success is a Creative Process. 'rom Success.

Don't think. because your plan or Idea has no precedent, or because you are young and inexperienced that you will get no hearing.

The man of strong individuality who dares to think his own thought and originate his own method, and who is not afraid of himself, not a copy of some one Alse, quickly gets recognition. Nothing else will attract the attention of your employer or the rest of the world so quickly as riginality and unique ways of doing things, especially if they are effective. Sumnier Evening Gowns. From Harper's Iazar. White *owns are always fashionable unrelieved by any color; but there are such fascinating pinks and blues and yellows and mauves that, while a white gown is always distinctive and attractive, it seems to have lost the smartness and individuality that it possessed. There are most charming materials for evening gowns this year, striped gauzes and chiffons; chiffon especially seems endowed with- everlasting youth. and appears again as one of the new fabrics. There are fascinating crepes de chine, while the plain and figured taffetas and the inexpensive gauzes and satins really come within the reach of every one. In the pattern gowns there is a great variety to choose from, both in laces and in embroidered muslins, and a most excellent investment is a lace gown made with two waists, a high and a low one. Under the Apple Tree. Prom the Fables of Eugene Ileltal. In the garden of a great man six persons were sitting, a scientific man, a merchant, a poet, a young man-very much in lovea lawyer and a lady. The wind was blowing rather hard and six apples fell down. Each took one. The scientific man took his apple and discovered a new law of nature. The merchant sold his. The poet ate his. The young man who was very much In love gave his to his sweetheart The lawyer went to law against the owner of the tree on account of being hit by the fallen apple. But the lady took her apple to the owner of the tree, gained his affections, and as he was rich she had lots of money all the rest of her life.

The club woman is of a very religious turn of mind, and, in fact, C does much good work. Recently a revivalist held a series oft meetings in a neighboring church, and the1 club woman was regular in her attendance. The day after a meeting in which the evangelist made a particularly direct ap- g peal to the sinners the club woman wast discussing the sermon with her sister anda the small niece sat by with her dolls. 1 "Well," said the club woman, "I've just been thinking, and it doesn't seem to me 4 that I have done much wrong in my life- ' time. .Taking it all in all, I think I've been J about as good as the ayerage woman." 1 Then she hesitated.
