Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta r.KTiinninnF, THURSDAY. DECEMBER 7. 1910 .New York Through Canadian Eyes Glitter Has Entered Deep Into Soul of the New Yorker -Crowds Swarm Into After the Crowds arc Serious Greenwich Village, By RKPPATH. XKW YORK. Nov. 21 MADIFON SQl-ARE GARTEN" this week has trans- formrd into a very irnr- for tho Hnrse Show. this tin1 Xev.- Yorker says It lias a barnlik--' appearance owincr to its Ivrrh ways ready to join in some harmless raJllery; they have- plenty of to But a Xew York crowd is first of all serious. The crowds that hurry along- Broadway at six o'clock have no time to pause to look at the screamlnfr absurdities oT Broadway. They are Epnces. But no one could find that i hurrying for a bus. the subway, fault with it now. The red and white j with the one idea bunting, the quantity of greenery, and the rows of red geraniums around boxes form a friez? of crimson cclnr which makes :t cat tunir warm and pay. Even the hoxw have j above thej br-on Tied with white leather piped with red. But the decorations are only n background for the gorgeous wraps that were worn. Some of cherry or of getting at least a strap to clinp to. 1 question anyway if would find cause for amusement in the Corticoin his endless heads, in FebccG's tocth paste ribboning the heavens, or in any of tlie one and al! of these atrocities that make of one of their larjrc-st streets a Coney Island frolic. They have no time. They are not orchid-colored velvets, s-me of j individuals, they are crowds; and its embroidered with gold, while the furs j crowds they into the 1 jewels left one bewildered at the medi the the subway, by the over-weary officials whui must repeat their dreary- caution, "Watch till you fcol the words art" aven on their souls. Human ma- thought of so much wealth. I noticed Lady Adam Beck, who was judging saddle horses, wearing a wrap of molesk'.n with a wh'to lace picture hat. with a pink silk crovn. In one of the boxes, quite a lot of attention, was an of- ficer, a bandnsre strapped across th? lower part of his face. whcle having been shot nway at Loos. TVar seems such an unreality ii this country of wealth and that I was recalled to it a shock of horror and found myself at all the wealth and mrvrrt'ficcnce with a feeling distaste for it ail. Red searlsi secmed to be among the favorite colors worn, and that reminds me of an evening dress that T saw at Liicllle's. It was made of ?cft red velvet, th? skirt very much gathered and lonprer at each side. The wa'at was a girdle of the velvet with straight narrow bands over the shoul- ders. There trlmm'ns: except a large sash bow of the velvet at the back. The evening- dresses have no sleeves, a band of the material or a strnp of sequins or flowers being all that is used. Biltmore Mecca of Fashion BUT the Eiltmore is the place to j -go1 to S3e evening wraps" and Igl: dresses. After the theatres" jtal every table is It is-not so {of chines. That is the thought that strikes one so often in Xew York.' Quamt Greenwich Village FROM the crowds on Broadway to the quiet streets of Greenwich villace, where the artists live, is like lieinf: transported to another city. Here there is the mellowness of old things, the atmosphere of some by- way In London. There !s Guldo Bruno's garret built quaintly above a tiny shop where Guido Bruno will talk to you on toe modern trend in art. There Is the Dutch Oven, so justly famed for the cheapness of its are in cheap cotton blouses, but dinners and.for its spirit of Bohemia., face is interesting, and some Ariel there is the. Hotel Br.ivort, which is so strangely reminiscent of Paris, and which few but the real Xew Yorker knows about? The little rooms with their crude yellow walls and -topped ta- are bcautuul. One girl who must have posed for many a Madonna sat alone at a table smoking quietly, and quite oblivious to the no'se about her. Hero there is no boredom. It is a different type of face to those bles, around which the artists sit seen at the Plaza or at the Waldorf, drinking their wine or beer, intent in Everyone is interested in what' they cbnversation or lauffhiiijj r. greeting- arc saying, intent on some to some newcomer, are full of a plea; sant atmosphere of friendliness.
