A binding of vPfIe ls embroid- ered In coral dots, and two rows arc used 10 outline the insertion on the bell- shaped sleeves. The yoke of dots on the front of the Disuse is nothing but rows of embroidered circles, decreasing in number to one at the bottom.

The Newest Frills ONE of the most important consider- ations In the matter of dress acces- sories is that the collar and the jabot should correspond. Some women will persist in wearing an Irish lace collar with a jabot of cluny. In thai they outrage all the laws of proper dress- ing The whole, aspect of a sown can be made or ruined fay the addition of a new frill or fichu, or by a collar of a. differ- ent pattern, and this is no trifling mat- ter when one entertainment follows close on the heels of another and all the re- sources of the most ample wardrobe we severely taxed. The grandfather frill is still in favor: in its newest form it consists of a triple frill of point d'esprlt net falling like a gossamer cascade down one side or the Corjase and providing a charming finish to the simplest costume. There are indications that the low- eut colUrlws blouae Is going out of f- ion. The new Jabots, and especially the new, graceful Georgian fall of lace, necessitate a neckband, and the latest collar an all-round frill of pleated lace mounted on a narrow in- sertion. New in dainty collars of real lace and Irish crochet, with Honlton samples, almost, cover the ihoulders and show a deep square back and front, while pretty bUck-and-whItft collars, embroidered here and there In gold or ilumlnurn thread, are very smart. The Peter Pan collar Is far too pretty to be tightly abandoned, for It fits well around the neck, and in latest development la carried out in white linen, embroidered with colored silks or woolen thread. SOME of the most attractive coat ami dress sets, made of. a sailor collar and large turnback cuffs, are of rnousseline or plain swiss, with no iurther elaboration than the hemstitched hem. Hemstitching; by the way, is a favor- its feature on French gowns and acces- sorie.s of almost every hind of fabric, and can be used with excellent advan- tage on neckwear. Where hemstitching cannot be Intro- duced conveniently, set-in narrow bead- ing1 is used instead. Several .types of neckwear are represented In the latest importations from Paris. Foremost are the sailor collars. These come in em- broidered linen and batiste, net and lace, white material having-'colored borders matching the sown with which they are to be worn. Very handsome ones of heavy Irish lace can be copied with alluver em- broidery finished with a narrow lace edge. The shawl collar of embroidered ba- tiste or flne handkerchief linen finds fa- vor in the eyes of the large woman. These arc cut liko a fichu in front to give a shillow V-shaped nech. Such a collar with scalloped edges. Is particularly attractive v hen worn with a dark-colored sown.

The inoet popular IB a scintillating Jeweled fly poised on the'hair in a most bewitching fashion. Some of them are of velvet border- ed with gleaming rows of paillettes. or in metal tissue and lace. Eilack and white butterflies mounted on a bit of colored chiffon have a most charming effect. The little touch of color just visible through the hair provides a great addition to the coiffure, while the widespread lace wings have a. much lighter affect than ''the velvet. A satin ribbon or rosette mounted on a comb is another new hair orna- ar Linen Gowns A Summer Coat Suit COOL, comfortable coils and sklrtf are being mfttle of the finer, softer weaves of shantung silk, chosen in the natural biscuit shade, and also Of soft uncrushabie a favorite fabric called "silk serge." which closely resemble? our old friend, "satin mervellleiix." A pretty model Is of delft blue satin triir.rncfl !n a new way, with lonj silk ribbons chosen in a darker shade of blue. The skirt opens on the left side In panel effect, rcve-allnic a long end of rlhbon. and caught across with a dull silver button. The cost Is treated in similar way, with a trimming of satin ribbons and silver buttons, and la finished with a pleated sine frill of fine white batiste. .A high-crowne.l hemp hat to match the gown has a brim of irregular shape, which Is turned off the tnce and lined with black velvet, and is trimmed In a daring manner with one large dark criiwoft TOM. FIRST and foremost among the gowns suitable for Eummer wear come the frocks of cool, pale-tinted linens, since they are practically of no weight, while they are very refreshing to look at on the hottest days. A dellcionsly cool-looking model is made of lily-leaf green and adorned in an effective embroidery worked In flax Ihreads. in a combination of palest pink and green, with here and there the introdnction of ivory white. A tunic Is cut on a. rather new shape, very much bigger In thfc back than In tho front, while ll.e raised waist line Is outlined with pott black ribbon in a smart little bow on one sirlo and finished with fringed ends.
