The evening fashions being worn by the "Famous Forty" in Paris thi season impress one particularly th large variety of silhoucts adopted Never have individual taste an preference been allowed so much scope in contemporary fashions, an women are eagerly taking advan tage of this fact. One remarks both the slim, narrow silhouet and the one diametrically opposed to it, as well as various themes in between these two extremes. At a recent very smart dinner ! remarked particularly this develop rnent of the individual theme. And despite the fact that many differ ent silhouet lines were represen ted, the effect, in its entirety, was most pleasing. Different kinds o; flowers oftentimes present a mor charming bouquet than all of on particular genre. This fact is equally true of a smart and elegan gathering of fashionable women, in their respective costumes. The Princess Jean Poniatowsk wears from my collection a frock called "Lac Aux Dames." This robe de style in gray lace superimposed on faille, has a full skirt with a train. The basqued bodice is fast ened at the center front and i s strapless. In contrast to this frock is one worn by Madame Edouarc Baron called "Pensee." In blue crep this frock has a skirt which is wide only at the sides, particularly near the hem, giving the effect of a double, short tunic. The Duchess of Westminster also wears this same frock. "Fativa," with a slim, narrow skirt, has been selected by many of my clients, amongst them the Baronne Anthony de Rothschild. Mad- imoiselle Silvia Ribon also wears this same frock, with white gardenias on the shoulders. Flowers, ncidentally, are one of the badges of chic this season. Black and white are the two outstanding colors that one sees at evening galas, but there are also many )ther shades seen as well, and these Jffer as much variety as one sees n Silhouets. Sapphire blue is a olor liked by many of my private lients. Pale blue and pink, partic- larly the former, are much in evi- ence. H E L P I N G T H E H O M E M A K E R By MKS.

NEW YORK, July IS.--New York City is this week entertaining a woman visitor from Missouri. She is Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Mahnkey, who has just won a prize award in journalism, as the best country newspaper correspondent of the past year. She won this notable honor from a field of 1,581 contestants, including hundreds of trained men journalists. The prize is awarded annually by the editor of The Country Home, a national farm magazine and is the equivalent, in rural journalism, of the Pulitzer prizes which are given to those who write for the big city papers. Mrs. Mahnkey comes from a village so small that it can be found only on the largest maps. Her home town bears the appropriate name of "Oasis," and it has exactly 27 inhabitants. It is located in the Ozark hill-billy district of Missouri, and Mrs. Mahnkey is its only newspaper correspondent. She writes a weekly letter for the county newspaper, a weekly published in Forsythe, Mo. Writing for 44 Years. She is 58 years old and has been writing her weekly grist of news and gossip for 44 years. She was barely 14 years old when she began doing it. Her father was then the correspondent for the Forsythe paper and while he was away on a business trip, his little daughter carried on for him. When he returned, he said that she had done such a good job that she could continue to do it. She has never missed having her grist of news in every issue of the Forsythe Republican since that time. She has written more than 2.200 weekly letters to ;he newspaper, frequently including a poem Or two of her own composi- :ion--homely little verses of the Ozarks. - Mstly it has been a labor of love, 'or the rural newspapers can't af- 'ord to pay their village correspondents much. But she has done a hrouogh job, and her writing has mproved steadily, until this year omes the laurel wreath of recogni- ion as the best country newspaper orrespondent in the whole United "tates. Mrs. Mahnkey's father was prom- nent in politics in the Ozarks and erved several terms in the state egislature. Her son Douglas is car- ying on the family tradition, being t the present time a member of the ower house of the state legislature. Trip to New York. The award to Mrs. Mahnkey in- ludes, besides a small sum of money nd a silver trophy, a free trip to Jew York and Washington. It is the irst time in her life that she has raveled so far and the first time hat she has traveled alone. In New York her first desire wag to meet Al Smith and 0. 0. Mclntyre--Al Smith, because he is her favorite po- itical figure even though she is her- elf a, staunch republican; Mclntyre ecause he is her favorite writer. In Washington she will meet the president and members of the Missouri delegation in congress, and she will achieve a lifetime ambition to see Mount Vernon, Arlington and the Potomac. Although she was born in the Ozarks and has lived all her 5S years there, she comes from eastern stock. Her mother was born in Olean, New York, and her father came from an old Kentucky family. They moved to North Vernon, Ind., and later to Harrison, Ark., where Mrs. Mahnkey was born. Her other neighbors out in Oasis, Mo., who have been reading her weekly newspaper letter for many years, are surprised and astonished at the recognition that has come to her. Their typical reaction, as ex- jressed to Mrs. Mahnkey, goes about like this: "What? Those simple little local items in the county japer--you mean to say that they jrought you this prize?" Mrs. Mahnkey smiles back at them and says: "Simple? Yes, of course :hey'r e simple. But there is beauty n simple things, and I wonder sometimes if He who walked by blue Gallilee and who spoke always of simple things and loved to walk and talk with simple people, %vould be remembered at all if he had discussed nothing but relativity and :he thusness of the thisness?" Important Jorunalism. The judges who awarded Mrs. Mahnkey her prize from among nearly 1,600 contestants from all ver America, have commented on .he high quality of clippings which were submitted. In scope as well as nterest the submitted material exceeded their expectations, and their award carries a lengthy comment to he effect that the work of the so- ,alled crossroads correspondents, written for the American rural newspapers, constitutes a most im- tortant phase of American journal- em. Regarding the news clipping which won the prize for Mrs. Mahnkey, they say that they judged it he best of all because "it was :imply and beautifully written, rithout straining for effect; it was riendly and objective; it didn't Jobber over as do the writings of ·nany newspaper reporters who at- empt interpretative writing." Country correspondents, say the udges, are grand people. They are he forgotten men of American let- ers. Novelists, poets, playwrights, listorians, editors and reporters for he big city papers--all these have rizes to which they may aspire. But he country correspondent has heretofore had no such opportunity for recognition^ ( BITS ABOUT 'EM Mr. and Mrs. Willis Patton and Mr. and Mrs. Victor Glass, 116',2 Jefferson avenue northwest, are expected to return Friday from California where they have been vacationing, spending much of their time at Pasadena. * * * Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Mott have returned from a three weeks' wedding trip through the Bad Lands, the Black Hills and Yellowstone park and are making their home at the "San-Dee-Wae" cottage on the north shore of Clear Lake. * * * Mr. and Mrs. John A.
