Smartest Sport Sailors Arc Idttlc Trimmed The best dressed women are wear' ing: sailors of\ rough straw banded only with grosgrain ribbon; or high- crowned, narrow brimmed .sailors of very fine milan straw with the narrowest of ribbon bands. These hats depend on thefr material and shape rather than on. any charm of trimming- for distinction, and black straw sport hats of this type are exceedingly good looking" with sport costumes rich In color. There is also the pompon sailor, wide or brim, with rather large crown, and with a cluster of silk -pompons tucked into the angle of crown and brim toward the back, at one sido. All the sport hats have larg-e craw.-ni, so that they fit down well over the head, coming to the line of eyebrows and" ears. The hair is puffed over the ears to show beneath the low-worn hat, and a grood many women, this summer, are using- the artificial ear- puffs which give the fashionable coiffure effect under the hat yet keep their soft fluffy wave, however damp or humid the weather. Flattened Jlowcr Petals A favorilc Trimming- Between the tailored sport hat and the elaborate fete hat, comes the semi- sport .hat; a summer chapeau of all- R.-ouad usefulness for it may be worn with morning or afternoon frocks, or even with the traveling costume. These hats are in the most charming shapes, thir year, and they are o f t e n far more becoming than the tailored sport hat which looks wall only with costumes of spic-span, tailored type. A semi-sport hat of the kind under consideration is pictured In the large model, with brim rolled back' to five the continental, or three-cornered line. This hat, you-fiee, would look -.veil with a foulard afternoon frock, or a Ring- hara morning- frock. It could accompany an organdy successfully--if one were staying somewhere without a .large supply of headcoverlncrs to select fron. The hat in the picture Is a model of flexible straw, faced under the brim with blue silk. The crtep and dashing aeroplane bow Is made of blue ribbon and a (ouch of strong A.YV Infoir?TnslPicLar - iiTX x^Sorxvir*xiSiv .·©·5--- TJIfte tY*i^=p ^oplHTi-e- "BovrUffi Bunch of Cherries ; Lar h,e tint Co*" Mtet on Affair's -- OfPa.Y-pIeSJ.YSW. fLaL i% ^msll and Hal. for* General color is given by the cluster of rosy cherries that dangle below the ribbon bow. dome of thtiSe uheful .semi-sport hats are trim met) w i t j i wings; and more a::ti moro mode-Is are appearing each rJ:iy wlrh tho crushed flower crown 1 rimming, noted on a few, very exclusive French hats earlier In the season. The effect has evidently caught popular fancy, for it Is fast becoming a hallmark of the midsummer season in millinery. The big- white Mowers, usually of velvet, are spread out flti* nnd appllque'l io t h e ·crown, not Inferforlns with 'the line ( o f the h-i*. but nlmosr hi dine fhf» ;op and sides of the crown. One sees the big white velvet flowers, in pansy shape (much enlarged of course) ap- pllqucd on hats oC dark milan, and on coarse straws of lighter tono. A particulorly pretty hat of thi's'type !a of navy blue straw, 1 faced with white satin, and trimmed with white velvet a-ppliquod pansfes. Transparent H«fs A Mid.«»rnmcr Craze The hat of Georgette or of organdy Is more pretty--it. is Jiffht ns a feather to wear; and this i5 something to consider when every added ounce of wardrobe is a burden .on a mld- snmmt»r day, Th»«e dainty transpar- ent bats are a fad of the hour-- r one cannot call them In any sense an economical investment. The!r vog-ue will soon, pass and they must bo discarded after a few \vneks 1 r,-ear for a Georgette or.organdy Ji«L can never be repressed and retrirnm'ed another sen- son a? a model of good quality straw can be, · · · But thpro Is no doubt that tha transparent hais are- fetching affairs and one must absolutely, have one if she can! A checked organdy poke shape in blue and white has. a big bow of blue ribbon ncross the back; another poke of pink and bine ! checked organdy is trimmed with a band of patent leather on which is hand painted a garland of little roses. There are large sailors of blue GeorgetU crepe ivith white satin sash banded around, the crown and fallinp in fringed ends'at'one side; nnd there are perfectly Irresistible hats of pale pink embroidered Georgette with transparent mushroom brim and "crushed b?rnd of the pink .crepe tied in a butterfly bow at the bach. The Fctfc Hat AH Tulle And Flower-? But discussion of the transparent sport, hats has broug-ht us into the realm ,of formal, or fote hats forTnid- Kummor days. · It Is dimcult, when one groes. away for a short vacation, to carry alon^ a hfit of this son, but It must be "done, by hook" or by crook, this year! Nobody poe? rmtless these days. find the prnciire would be specially bad form at any afternoon affair formal enouph to make an elaborate frock essential. .There. are so many war relief entertainments t h j p summer --iR.wn parties, out-of-door bazaars [veranda bridge parties, and the like; one simply must patronise these affairs, at whatever summer resort one happens to., bo staying; and ouch occasions demand the- very prettiest co«- i umes at one's command. The organdy or chiffon frock will not be of ( m u c h use unless there'be, to accompany it, something ravishing in the war of millinery. MORI of these midsummer fete ha-ts are swathed with tullea, over or under the brim--sometimes In both . The -big hat pictured has yards of white tulle, attached at the back In streamers, and these streamers wind about the throat and partly over the face in most becoming .style. The hat, itself, is of Seffhorn, and the brim · has be'en slashed and. slipped part way up the- crown, at the back, to give a poke shape to the hat. The crown IP made of shirred pink chiffon and Is banded with heliotrope velvet ribbon, tied in a fiat bow at the left side. Some pale pinkish-mauve silk roses fill in the hollow between crown nnd. brim at the back, and on the crown, bolow the turned up brinj '.-i arranged the tulle bow with its long ; streamers. Another picture hat illustrated to- c'ay Is of violet colored straw with a facing of pale violet witJn. The shape Of the brim is very · graceful, shading without eclipsing the face. Roses and shaded purple asters are arranged ihickjy around the crown and there Is a bow "of soft, wide violet satin ribbon on the brim, across the "back ol the hat. Traveling hats for midsummer are smalJ, smartly shaped aftnlrs o* straw, w i t h wing trimming or aeroplane bows of ribbon That gives dashing expression and-vivacity to otherwise dignified and demurt'.nuie turban shajjos;- FRI ; GE3 IS FASHION" HE PASSIOX for" fringe is not abating and many of the summer frocks show fringe- on sash- pnd?, on The bottom' of tunics, on cellars and cuffs and on slashed draperies. The new fringes are oi silk, of wooi, of cotton, o£ chenille and of beads. Tassels play their appropriate part in a season of fringe trimminjr, of course, and some frocks have tassels half a yard long- dangling from ihe sleeves or the shoulders. Vc ry d atniy a re the narrow silver fringe trimmings' which add brightness to evening Irocks of chiffon and Georgette cre-pe, and tht weight of the silver fringe makes the aoft fabric . hang In exquisitely graceful lines. i J HETHEH one wears calico or chkrmftaae these days, an ab- ·oiut* necessity of the cos- "tuihe'i'j a. smart and more or ItM'itHking'-handbags And the mar- v*l;'i»,. how. so ..many of these bas mataac* to b» striking- and Individual, tii .*,»***m .wh«n -"no two handbags _»*«a. to.-ba. milk*.

Such a ba.g will bo a joy to Its possessor, and will la^t long enough to become a family heirloom. Very old Lags, beaded by maidens of a hundred years and more ago and prissed from m c t h e r to daughter down the generations, arc being" brought out now and freshened up with n«' mountings; and many of these long-ago fashioned bags are more distinguished and beautiful than any of 1 he modern specimens. The most prized patterns of ancient art are the landscape and figure effects and some of these are exceedingly quaint, The design of Chinese flgureK 'in one of the bags illustrated -*vas copied from a beautiful old reticule of the Chinese Chippendale period. In some of the new beaded bags, -siuede is effectively combined with the beaded -pattern. One interesting- example shows a lattice design of white beads over rich blue suede, the blue color, showing in diamond shaped motifs through, the white lattice. Around the edge of the bag Is a scroll border in blue-gray beads, the scroll running out into the white outline of the lattice pattern. Beads are used with silk and with satin very effectively, the beaded design forming a stripe or plaid on the silk background. One such bag is of navy blue satin with Venetian beads and a frame- of Imitation amber. Another bap shows n i plaid, part of f h e plaid navy blue taffeta, with beads In green, blue, coral and ^arnoi forming ihe ovt-r-plaid pattern. This bag lias a Jado green rrjii/ie. Silh or voivot bags with monograms done in beads are very attractive: and the monograms are the new sort. In geometric forms, the three letter? shaped to nt into a circle, diamond, oval or other device, A biack velvet bag with monogram outlined in cut 5t,:el beads is extremely Bnmrt. The lining is of white satin and a lontr black =-iik tassel acids distinction :.o tho bag-. Tassels -swing: from every third basr these days--that is, if the bag Js of silk or other soft fabric.' Tho big b.-igs have huge tatfls that might have been cut from trappings worn by. horsrs at funerals of other days; and tassels grade downward in sir.e to-tiny affairs that trim the cord handles of little vanity bags. Tho woman of fastidious taste absolutely refuses to .use imitation leather. If she cannot havo a handbag of real seal or its ilk, she chooses one of silken fabric, and the range of fabrics -suitable for handbags Is so wide that manufacturers--aware of t.hc dffltastc for i m i t a t i o n leather among women who buy the best qualities in accessories--are n voiding the.=e imitation leathers as much as they -can. Some- of the new French bags have highly polished wood frames, or frames of -wood lightly trimmed with metal and the e'flcct is excellent. It is prbphcaled that wood frames for handbags will almost entirely replace metal frames very noon.
