PLAITS IN FAVOR
Decoration for Dresses Popular
Here and Abroad.
Garments That Are Simple of Outline
Feature Panels, Sleeves, Cape
Plaits have seemingly caught the
fancy of the Parisienne ns well as of
the American woman, asserts a fash
ion correspondent in the New York
Tribune. Dresses simple of outline
that feature plaits either in the form
of panels, sleeves, cape effects, flounces
or the like are rushing In upon us at
a great speed.
Plaits sometimes servo ns trim
mings in the form of inset motifs,
made either of the same fabric used
for the dress or suit or a contrasting
one. The material Is made into
squares or oblongs after it is very
finely plaited and then applied to the
Ribbons as trimmings are in great
favor and quantities of many com
binations of ribbons are seen. Coats
close at the side with a ribbon whii
has streamers so long that they trail
on the ground. Soutache braid trim
ming is also In great demand. One
coutourier has a youthful model made
of serge having no ornamentation
other than snurrcs of souiaeh -.Cmm
alternate with serge squares.
Heavy wool embroidery done in n
loop stitch, and which gives the ap
pearance of tapestry. Is among this
season's novel irimmimrs. This em
broidery is sometimes sheared to form
little square tufts which stand away
from the surface of the fabric about
one-quarter of an inch in depth.
Sometimes a part of the pattern Is
clipped and the rest is left in ti-lit
loops. This trimming is used to form
deep borders on coats as well as col
lars and cuff.
In addition to loop stitch needle
work, there are effects achieved by
means of curiously formed stitches,
some of which trive the appearance
of four. When the loop sritch is used
it is sometimes varied by being caught
down with a stitch of silk embroidery.
At one French house embroideries
along the lines of ancient motifs are
Among the leather trimmings tbnr
nre being shown are those of patent
and plain kid and suede, the latter
sometimes perforated to make it more
ornate. The highly glazed leathers
nre in red. blue and black, and look
like gelatin paillettes when applied
in narrow hands. Leather Is also
used as n foundation for embroideries.

PREFER THE YELLOW PEARL
Oriental Peoples Consider the Colored
Gem Superior to the White in
Most persons have placed the lus
trous white pearl above all others. The
'hinese, however, together with other
eastern peoples. prefer the yellow
pearl, believing that it preserves both
luster and coi n- longer than the white.
This pearl is said to owe its yellow
to the 'act that the oysters have been
allowed to d.e and putrefy in their
shells, the shells opening of them
selves on the death of the oyster.
This custom has been ascribed to
the fac,- that the pearl generally lies
