M. islICAL 1 inter :Fashions By DELTA A terials for evening gowns; the fin and more transparent the more modish. These are made over lightwelt satin. or of the same material in a differe t color. Though made princess and pseudo directolre, the most ultra are Greek govons with transparent underskirts. though they are usually draped with opaque tunics having the Greek cut at the neck and the long flowing sleeve. A beautiful model is a golden chartreuse with a tirI cuter skirt. close at the top. - The question of skirt lergths Is so definitey defined as to be an easy matter. The walking skirts are in two lengths. to the ankle and heels. For outdoor and carriage wear they are long all around. and lie on the floor behinst, thongh they usually do not take the proportions of a train. But for elaborate evening wear and smart evening gowns the demi-train is In good taste. - - The other afternoon I saw a. decidedly smart walking suit. It was a golden brown serge especially appropriate for autumn.. It was a rarrow five gored skirt. The front seams, within two or three inches of the hem. were covered with narrow trimming bands of brown satin that ran across the bottom and up the slate of the skirt in a sort of tunic that was unusually cad and pretty. - The skit t was trimmed with large buttons of the material. Though most of the coats are extremely long, the short separate coats of bright colors .with light skirts are decidedly in 'vogue for driving. Though seen in pongee and silk, those of colored velvet and satin find greaten favor, especially those of pale blue and green hued. with soft black satin. Buttons Favorite Trimming. Button are a favorite form of trimming: they are made In all shapes, sizes. and material. Many of the smart trotting ,skirts have the front breadth trimmed with-bAttons of the material and buttonholes from the belt to the beginning of the plaits. Even gowns of silk, satin. crepe de chins are trimmed with buttons of the same material. Far coetlier buttons, made of enamel and porcelain, decorate handsome gowns. while buttons made of 'liver and gold are seen. Paasementerie buttons. which were decidedly In vogue a few seaeon ago, are now considered more modish than ever. They are especially pretty for a gown of green or navy blue. A model of laurel green serge shows a lire of large black passessenteries buttons set at the back, at each wide from shouldes to hem The only' other trimming on this princess gown was a band of black satin at the wrists and collar Elack taffeta is contidered a smart trimming and is used not alone on green aid Nue but on delicate shades of pink. blue. ale' white. The taffeta Is sometimes only used for collar and cuff, but It occasionally appears - In a deep ban.. at the bottom of th skirt. A new and pretty trimming for gowns of light shades ard material is a costae white net cut into widths to suit and dotted with pastilles of coarse threads. It Is edged with narrow bans of the material pf the gown. Scarfs play no less a rble as ornaments; they are worn to trim waists. as girdles. sashes, etc. They are seen In all colors and made of every material from heaviest plaids to softest crepe de cl,lts. They are thrown across the shoulder, suggestint a Scottish shawl, now tied about the waist like an Algerian dancer's shawl,. and draped intricately, conying the Greek toga. ,They are trimmed with knots of the materials, long, costly fringes. and with tassels made of silk and even with silver and gold threads. Braid Kaeps Its Popularity. Braid. plain and elaborate. is used to trim everything. from simple negligees to handsom evening dresses.- T. Milner braids are of cotton. but the more elaborate. esp.- cially for evening use. are made of si.k sometimes woven with silver and gold threads. Satin - and meteor. elaborately braided are the dernier cri in vening wrap". The ultra fashionable of Paris have decided to adopt the long, plain, tight sleeves of the leg-of-mutton order. The new mouseque tetra I. almost as email, though it is more deceptive because it does not mold the arm $o firmly. - The leevee may be perfectly plain or have buttons rumaing up part or the Whole 11110th.

A whole costume of heavy corded silk worn with havdsome furs makes a desirable afternoon gown. Khaki shade and taupe are also attractive in the corded silk. The corded alike are especially popular for the directoire coats. with their wide revers and long tailed back breadths. A charming model is seen In the Rue de la Pala rnade of the new corded silk. It is in oleic blue; the long directoire coat has the high turned over collar, the square revere, and the wide cuffs. The high collar is made higher by the wider ruffle that falls over the top and the large bbw of black that dile the front. Some of the trimmings are as heavy find costly as the silk. Among the newest and moat popular are the pearl and jet embroideries. Immense stones in relief are set with fine beads. A handsome gown of black silk gauze Is trimmed with jet palliates and blue beads. They are arranged In a stole and quite cover the front of the gown. The English .women have launched a new coat, and for want of a better name it la called Tautioy. It is especially adapted for walking and automobiling. It has a blankety appeararee for it is made of checked brown and white tweed. The back is plain and roomy, though belted. The front Is dressier because of the wide lapels,, the great buttons of white, and colored home, and the huge pocket, ith buttoned flaps. The same house shows suits quite as swagger. They are made of the same material without any trimming except fer the machine stitching on the edges of the cuffs and collar. Great buttons of white pearl trim part of the coat front.

There Is little trarcelling and few puts worn by the smart women in London and Paris. They are returning to the wine full bandeaux worn at either side of the head. The ears are well hidden under the new bandeaux. Most of the women wave the hair fancifully and elegantly over the forehead. They dress the back low in a chignon arranged near the center of the head A mew idea is to have a narrow velvet ribbon in blue or pilpit or green laced through the hair and tied just back of the left ear. Jewell-3; Fashions for Winter.
