The inoonguity of turning aster in-
to a dress carnival has become so
widely recognized as the absurdity of
receiving callers Indiscriminately on
the first day of January, writes Mrs.
Osborn, the famous arbiter of styles,
In the Delineator for April.
Easter gowning as a general ob-
servance, an annual outburst hard on
the heels of religion, met Its death
at the hands of this fine decade of

Now, while of Itself Interesting, the
change in aster customs Is only a

any hard and fast law as to styles
for women, and the Intelligent are

dress is possible only to the compara-
tively few. The average woman Is
obliged to limit her wardrobe. Now
there was a time when the average
woman's conformity to the famllinr
would have made her select her few

the so called fashionable. Her clothes
were often extreme, and soon tired
Today it is very different. One
frequently meets women who appear
smartly dressed and who possess only
one costume that may be strictly call-

these women Is not induced by chance
Rather It is the result of Intelligent
planning. They realize that be-
cause they have only one dress, It
must be strictly correct.

THE 8PRING QUEEN.
The Spring Queen gave a party,
Her halls were draped in green,
The Breeze* waved her banners
To decorate the scene.
The Bluebirds and the Robins
Came early at her call,
Then Phoebes, Wrens and Thrushes
Soon hastened to the ball;
From many a fertile plain,
Her bidden guests came flocking
From many a mossy valley,
To Join her royal train.
The music from her minstrels
Was wondrous sweet to hear;
Shy April led the dancers,
And laughing May drew near
To crown the Queen with blossoms
And lead her to the throne,
Where she was fain to linger
Till June's first rose had blown.
