THE CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1912. PAGE SEVEflf OOOOOOOOGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Women's Column oooooococxxxxxxooooocgooo PICTURESQUE NECKWEAR NOW THE WHIM With the now season comes a form of neckdrcsslng which Is completely revolutionizing the neckwear trade. Revolutionary and Dlrectolre periods predominate In plcturosquo rolling and half standing shancs. combined with jabots, rovers and vests. The general effect is enhanced by the sheerness, softness and sllkiness of the material used, harmonizing with tne present wide use of soft drapery stuffs. Laces are especially In evidence In the neckwear for late summer and fall, those soft lacos. like shadow lace, which are adapted to the much- demanded pleatings and .dranings Venlse, val, mallnc nnd cluny, to- getner with soft nets are also greatly favored. Bohemian lace Is a new favorite for fall, this in the more ex pensive pieces, though very clever Imitations may be had at popular prices. The so-called Robespierre collar has taken an unusually strong hold on popular fancy, and is appearing in numerous variations at present writing with the promise of many new ones for the fall. In general this is the roll, or the stand up and turn down collar, V shaped neck, and double jabot of soft net, lace or chiffon. The central piece of the jabot takes numerous shapes, a straight band of ribbon; a strip of lace; a vest-like affair made of sat in; tab ends; or two revers either joined or set a little apart, the lace frills around the outer edges. But ton trimming is especially appropri ate on some of these shapes; In fact there are buttons, buttons, every where pearl, crystal, satin, crochet in the new neckwear. Collars or black satin in combina tion with lace, follow the popular black and white vogue. One creation to be worn with a white serge or mohair frock, showed the wide roll collar of black satin, running into a V shaped vest which had white pearl buttons and simulated buttonholes, with a wide frill of white shadow lace edging it. Another was a Mack satin collar and two wide severs, col lar and revers edged around with a Pleating of tulle. The woman who depends on a quick change of neckwear to freshen a costume will find lingerie affairs to her heart's delight. Some are plain and tailored like a little one of handkerchief linen, with scalloped hemstitched edge, a button on each of the two front points, and two scalloped tabs, joined by five but tons and buttonholes. Another col lar, jabot and cuff set suggested the use of bordered handkerchiefs. In the lingerie designs there are numer ous dainty combinations of hand em broidery and lace, handkerchief linen and soft batiste. One of these showed a wide embroidered collar with quite sharp points inset with lace. A vest of two strips of val in sertion, V shaped at the neck and fagotted together to the waist line, was edged with narrow pleatings of val lace. From under the lace came two revers made of strips of the in sertion Collar and revers were fin ished with braid fagottlng. In tailored neckwear the many va riations of the high Robespierre are very smart, especially in black and wh te and will be greatly in evi dence during the cooler fall days. This style Is much after the fashion of the stock worn by our own Revo lutionary ancestors, made of black or coiorea satin, crusn or straight, and with broad or narrow turnovers of white pique, ratine or linen, re movable for laundering. Often the stock is of white material and the turnover of satin. One favored style closes in front under a flat bow. In another a space of about three in ches is left open under the chin or is filled with tucked net or folds of satin. What tho Fashionable Folks Are earing. Two garments nrf nntnhlo in tho outfit of the girl to-day and whatever else her wardrobe may lack it will have one or more "Polo" blouses and a Blazer" coat. The Polo Blouse. The nolo blouse is made nf silk. usuauy of the washable sort, and is bum on the simplest of tailored lineb like a man's shirt with turn over co,.ar aught by linko studs. Turn baik . uffs to match, finish the sieeie that is usually wrist length. The fastenng is down the front with pearl buttons in the regulation model The Blazer Coat. The blazer coat Is the nlil tlma fix. vonte revised in striped color con trasts as of yore, still there are many changes run on this model of loose sack shape, and some very ri'i 1 v i nnrc nro mint nr rrnni iffl Iflffin nViitrt Tnnw .J iiv usiuuiary paten pocKets or this sporty garment which is useful to slip oier a too thin frock at the Fancy Parasols. Parasols not to be nutrlnnn liv tho novelties in other dress accessories, have taken strange and bizarre forms this year. Pagoda shapes abound with curves that would as tonish the original models. Flat outstanding types are seen In both me sun and the rain varieties, which their makers claim give added pro tection from the elements, because nf linllnnrl nnrocn a r9 Iaasi .htnl. w Q r l M IS Wl ire the top notch of elegant expen- in cut-as urfiiit?nr n ir tr ? tin rm rat :lusivo dealers.

"Wash rag hats arc the latest, thing for outing wear, and are 'worn' like Panamas with any costume. Panamas are very large and trlm-i mod with a band of velvet or rib-1 bon. 1 Fashion Notes. The vogue of the separate coat Is increasing. Auto veils of Shetland silk aro much worn. Tho word "bustlo" is being whis pered about. Pretty dresses for morning wear aro made of linen. .Many of the new sleeves are long and finished with a frill. Some few gowns havo the panniers looped up well toward the back. Many striking combinations of colors aro used for afternoon wraps. The vogue for black and white has extended to the bathing costume, and some of the smartest are of black and white stripes. Stripes of linens and the various weaves of muslin and cotton voile are popular. Linens and cotton voiles take the lead In the list of fabrics for smart blouses. Blouses of satin are trimmed with lace, and have often long, full sleeves of lace with tight lace cuffs and plaited frill. Wraps of Oriental red, Mediterran ean green and lapis blue are worn with ball gowns. HOW TO DUST. When you clean a room, it is not enough to stir up the dust. You must remove It. When you brush a feather duster over a desk or a chair, you merely scatter the dust. Soon it settles and you have your work to do over again. In the meantime, while the dust Is In tho air, you are probably breathing it Into your lungs, Irritating your nose and throat and putting yourself in danger of catarrh. Don't use a feather duster. Take a soft, dry cloth when you dust and shake it frequently out of the win dow. Another method Is to use slightly moistened cloths, rinsing them out in water when you have finished. It Is hard to sweep a room with out raising dust. If you can af ford It, buy a vacuum cleaner. The next best thing in sweeping a car pet Is to moisten a newspaper, tear it into scraps and scatter these upon the floor. The damp pieces of pa per will catch the dust. Sprinkle moist sawdust on bare floors. This will prevent the stirring up of much dust when you sweep. Neither pa per nor sawdust should be dripping wet only moist. Remember that the Idea in sweep ing and dusting is to remove the dust not to stir it un and act ac cordingly.

The Western Union Telegraph company will put girls in as messengers in their Pittsburgh offices. The change is to be made soon, according to J. J. Delhi, su perintendent of messengers. Tho company is using girls in Con nellsvllle, Greensburg and some of the smaller cities. In Pittsburg tho girls will be put first in tho branch offices. Girls aro more conscientious and less liable to interruption on deliv ery trips, Diehl says. Tho fact that boys can make more at other work and do not enter the messenger ser vice so readily as In the past, the company says, is another reason for the change. LOOKOUT.

President R. D. Wrenn Hopes to In clude Every Section of the Country In the Movement Would Be Good Thing For the Sport. Robert D. Wrenn, president of the United States National Lawn Tennis association, sounded the first note in flic progressive movement toward the nationalizing of tlic game nt n meeting of tho ranking committee In Now York recently. It was stated by Mr. Adeo, who is secretary of tho committee, that it is tluj wish of the president of tho association that every plnycr in tho United States who compotes in tourna ments may bo registered with tho rank ing committee this season. This will afford the national association a com prehensive list upon which to work nnd tho names of the active competitors through whom tho betterment of tour naments ma- ho brought about. "It is the earnest desire of Mr. Wrenn to give to lawn tennis nn active administration," said Mr. Adee, "and he has been planning and working to ward that end. Every branch of tho game is being carefully gone over, and even now Henry W. Slocum and his committee associates arc busily en gaged In a complete revision of tho rules. "The president has conferred with this committee and has written to Miles S. Charlock of tho Crescent Athletic ciub of New York, its chairman, upon tho chief points which are to bo devel oped in its systematic work this Ben son. Already upward of a thousand letters have been sent out to prayers and tournament committees throughout the country. More will follow. Our ef forts tD establish a complete list can not be successful, however, unless ev ery player Interested In the game lends his assistance toward making our rec ords absolutely complete. "At tho last annual meeting it was ruled that ten players were to bo rated numerically, and the following ninety men were to be rated in groups of ten each. "It has occurred to Mr. Wrenn to offer valuable suggestions to the com mittee, so that no section of the coun try may be overlooked. Heretofore tho eastern players have monopolized the ranking list Wo propose now to ascer tain whether or not thoy rightfully be long tliere. Undoubtedly there arc bril liant performers in other sections of tho country who have not received their Just recognition. They are about to receive their Just reward unless thoy persist in biding themselves. I think that I can confidently state that this committee is inaugurating the most im portant movement for the development of lawn tennis that tho game has ever known in this country. "Necessarily we have to deal with a larger territory than any other nation. This makes tho task more dlfllcnlt. Mr. Wrenn has wisely pointed out, therefore, that middlo season and late season playing should count for more In arriving at a Just rating than the early season performances. Then at least three tournaments most bo con sidered for o singles rating and two for a doubles, with, of course, occasional exceptions as of champions who have previously assured their positions. "One of the greatest difficulties this committee will have to contend with is tho shifting of doubles teams, which makes an adequate rating almost Im possible. An effort will bo made to es tablish permanent pairings so that Americans may not fall behind in this department of tho game. "Wo nro planning to begin work on tho ratings not later than Sept. 25. To facilitate this work every player is having mailed to hl,m n record blank upon which data may bo readily en tered and sent to this committee." Tho committee includes Miles S. Charlock of tho West Side Tennis club and Crescent Athletic club, chairman; Charles M. Bull, Jr., Crescent Athletic club, and George T. Adee, Country club of Westchester, secretary. Mr. Charlock has ably planned tlio system atizing of the campaign so that every player In this country may bo listed In the national association records even if his name fails to appear on the honor roll of 100 at tho close of tho season. Altogether it is tho first movement of national scope which tho association has undertaken. JOHNSON'S LATEST AMBITION. Champion Heavyweight Wants to Bo come Crock Baseball Player. Jack Johnson, heavyweight cham pion of tho world, wants to become a baseball player. Johnson recently made application for the first base position on tho American Giants in Chicago, Rnbe Poster's colored scmlprofcsslanal team, and win bo given a chance for too place. Manager Foster asked Johnson to report for morning practice for a cou ple of weeks for tho purpose of de veloping his batting powers. Johnson says lo played a fair game of boll foveral years ago,, and ho has no doubt that ho can "como back."
