TORONTO, irnrch 16. By AKXTE GUAY BUTCHER. ^YtQ-*'^'^' i'":''inp their new VA/ spriiic!^ hats \ cry early now. ^ ' It seems like ina- ot women where hats nre concerned. There are seventy-five thousand women in Toronto with heads; therefore with vanity. Likewise therefore with the desire and ability to acqftilre a new spring hat. Approximately fifty thousand new hats,nre put on the market in this city everj* season. The de.alers know their women. And they know that tarry thmiBU she may foulack of mone.v,]br time, or ambition, the cjill of the hat wHl get her sooner or later. Just think of It. A woman has onlj- one clianco in fifty-thousand of getting �the hat Iho wants. Is it any vonder that sho joins the throng ot Hat Hunters as early as possible?

A^e feel that the old hat lias become a landmark; that the scenery in our vicinity will never look the same" attar it is gone. And after the hat hunt Is over- and the" new hat is safely bagged-or boxed- arid in our>ppssessIon, we try It on; With our hair up and our hair down, our hair curled ana str"algh_t and off and on, and .trten we put it back in the box nfnd tike a few more turns out of the olrt hat. Till at laslj the sun sliines. the warm winds blow and the ancient headgear is an nlicn in the land 6f spring. The old hat has had Us day-rougl*-ones most of thiem-the new hat takes the spot light, More Sensible Nov^, ONE cannot enter into the game ot buying thr -hew spring hat without realizing how tntrth more sensible women* have become in the matter of hata. Ten years ago live yards of.ribbon, a couple ot feathers, and a fpw nowersij njiade a fairly adequate trimming'ror what we supposed was oup, ''dome of though?." The dome wap'there all right, but the thoughts could not have been working or. we wmjld never have worn such absurdities. Now, about is something" to stick up or down or out or over, and there is your hat. In retrospect one ret:alls rf millinery construction .called an "opera hat." It defies description. but> the older girls wjli remember it. It was the fanciest, most traffic-blocking, view-obstructiiig abomination imaginable. "Women wore it to" the theatre and they dtO not have to remove their hats In those days. It they did so-^wijch wa.s seldom- tl\ey were conspicuou.s. Considering it one can understand why men got drujtl* anil.'dogs, went crazs'- -A. vil-al ot it in these' congested times would start a revolution.- As an instrument of F.ite the hat hangs on the front hook. Fifty per cent, of the first- m9etlngs between the opposite sexes take' pUioe while the lady is wearing tieadgear 61 some kind. If it is becoming the male does not need a niiscroscopo or a guide book to discover it. If" It is disfiguring-*-a liat is never neutral- he sees it. .just as quickly, and ^ca.t-.ilogues licr accordingly. First impressions of that kind persist. A man h.ns Jbo advantage of being able and expected to take his hat oft when he is Intrpduced to a lady. Good, bad, or: indifferent, o&C it cornea and; we see. him as he;.ll without bis bat^ -A. woman may know that tbe hat she is wearing is' making her look like ,tho last; rose 'of summei'c and tbatishe looks-ten tttnes better.without it, but she cannot unpin it and take it oft every.tUn^ she"}s Introduced to an>'bne. So she must bear the, .stigma ot having "chosen ;an un-: becoming lifit; And an unbecoming liat i^ a' bard thing to live ilojwn. ^ - \yhy Money Is Scarce "jjo you know why mqney is so scarce, brothers'."' the soapbox! orator demanded, and *a fair sized section oftthe backbone ,ot the nation waited In 'leisurelj^^patlence for the answer.
