ART NOTES

Metropolitan Museum of Art —

Fifth ave. and 83d st. Anpng
the most recent accessions
to the collection of the mu-
seum include an exhibit of cera-
mics in which are nine plates and
a vase of Delft ware of the sev-
enteenth and eighteenth centur-
ies, a gift from Mrs. Catherine
Van Vliet De Witt Stcrry. The
furniture added this last month
is intended to form the nucleus
of a collection of specimens of
the work of English cabinetmak-
ers of the eighteenth century.
Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan has
given busts in colored plaster of
Voltaire and Rousseau, the work
of Houdon; the busts stand on
original pedestals which bear the
seal of Houdon's atelier. There
are also three new paintings.
One is a "Street Scene in Paris,"
showing the church of St.
Germain des Pre, by J. F. Raf-
aellie, painted about twenty years
ago. Another is by William
Morris Hunt, "The Girl at the
Fountain," painted in i860. The
third painting is a Madonna by
Pietro di Domenico, of Montepul-
ciano. The Madonna is repre-
sented as enthroned with angels.

TROLLEY TRIPS

After crossing the Hudson River,
either by the Pennsylvania or Erie
ferry at 23d St., Chambers st. or
Cortlandt st., to Jersey City, one
can get a trolley for Newark, from
which point (Broad and Market
sts.) cars may be taken for nearly
every point in New Jersey.

From Newark to Elizabeth is
about seven miles across country,
takes about one hour. Elizabeth
is a very old city and is interesting
on account of Colonial and Revo-
lutionary memories.

From Elizabeth, passing through
Roselle, Cranford, Westfield and
Scotch Plains, Plainfield is reached,
which is a very beautiful residen-
tial town, fourteen miles distant.

By .taking a cross-country line,
which joins the main road before
reaching Westfield, one can go to
Perth Amboy, a delightful trip of
twelve miles, which takes a little
over an hour. From New York it
would take somewhat over three
hours.

One of the most delightful trol-
ley rides is from Newark to Cald-
well, up into the mountains, pass-
ing through Bloomfield, Glen
Ridge, Montclair and Verona Lake.

Another interesting point by
trolley is to Eagle Rock, where a
magnificent view may be had of
the surrounding towns and coun-
try. Seven miles.

Another trip from New York
into New Jersey is by way of the
130th St. ferry (reached by Broad-
way trains on the Subway, getting
ofif at Manhattan st., to Edgewater,
from which point one can take a
trolley for Fort Lee, Leonia,
Englewood, Bogota, Hackensack,
Lodi, Passaic and Paterson. From
the park on the Palisades, on top
of the cliff, above Edgewater, one
can take the new double track
branch to Palisades, Grantwood,
Morsemere, Palisades Park and on
to Leonia.

Take ferry across to Hoboken
from 23rd St., Christopher or Bar-
clay St., take the White Line to
Paterson, the great center of the
silk industry, passing through Jer-



IN NEW JERSEY

sey Heights, Schuetzen Park and
down to Hackensack Meadows,
through Homestead, Secaucus and
Carlstadt, to East Rutherford,
where a branch line goes to Ruth-
erford, then on through Passaic,
Clifton, Hamilton Heights to Pat-
erson.

From Paterson to Singac,
through the valley of the Upper
Passaic River, is one of the most
delightful of Jersey trolley trips,
giving the trolleyer a fine view of
the majestic Passaic Falls.

By taking the Cortlandt st. ferry
across to Jersey City a through
trolley may be taken for Trenton,
passing through Newark, Eliza-
beth, Westfield, Plainfield, Dun-
ellen. Bound Brook and New
Brunswick. From Trenton one
has the choice of a boat down the
Delaware River to Philadelphia or
a trolley into the Quaker City.

SHORT

The employment of sheer ma-
terials for suits has been most suc-
cessful. Worsted voile is most
favored, 'tho transparent, it is
nevertheless a substantial fabric.

Shantung and tussah are the two
silk fabrics ])referred for tailor and
ordinary walking suits. An odd
idea is trimming them with self-
colored cloth or worsted voile.

There is likewise a return of
favor for the broad velvet band on
the bottom of the skirt. The vel-
vet is always the saine color of the
dress, but of a darker shade. The
corsage is invariably trimmed with
the velvet, which was not the case
last year.

A striking suit was seen at a
garden party, which quite enliv-
ened the scene and looked well on
the green grass.

It was a tartan voile, in shades
of blue and green. The skirt was
composed of folds, worn beneath
was a skirt of crimson satin, which
showed very prettily through the
sheer material. The jacket lined
with the satin and simply trimmed
with a knife pleating of green taf-
feta, this also edged the foot of
the skirt.

Black in Paris is always consid-
ered dressy, an imported dress of
the Directoire type is very beauti-
ful, it was made of a black silk
gauze, having as skirt-trimming a
single very broad band of self-
colored filet net surrounding the
bottom. Embroidered in a heavy
design in black floss silk. The
skirt which continued in clinging
folds quite above the waist line
closed over a corsage of a Japan-
ese character, formed entirely of
folds of gauze and lace insertings.

Some of the designs in creton
are beautiful as a painting. One
we mention was composed of a
bunch of small pink roses with
leaves tied with a blue ribbon. The
ribbon in graceful ripples ties an-
other bunch a short space and so
on. The coat and vest was of fine,
soft glossy white broadcloth. The
creton cut out close to the pattern



TALKS

and appliqued on the vest, the
opening of the vest on one side so
arranged not to mar the effect of
the trimming. Coat with shawl
shape collar of blue, same color as
ribbon. The coat just met at the
end of the collar then flares to
show the vest. The dainty point is
a tiny bow of pink velvet without
ends where the coat met.

There are also beautiful adjust-
able collar, cufifs and belt of the
creton, and to complete the set is
the pocket book to match

The all-over embroidery waist
when introduced the early part of
the season was looked at with in-
difference, but now it is in great
demand. The high class dress-
makers show most attractive all-
over waists dyed in colors to
match the linen suitings. Also the
most exquisite embroideries of the
finest weave made up into waists
trimmed with cluny or baby Irish.
These are very expensive.

Among the novelties in under-
wear are night gowns and other
garments of cross-bar dimities,
trimmed with laces and embroid-
eries.

The embroidered silk gauntlet-
glove gives a smart touch to the
costume. It is milanese silk with
five-inch semi-stiff cufif attractively
embroidered on the cuf¥.

A radical change is shown in
waists intended for evening wear.
Among the latest models it is sel-
dom the shoulder is left bare. The
sleeve or whatever trimming re-
places it, is carried up over the
top of the shoulder and from there
falls in draped folds or frills over
the upper portion of the arm, this
gives a heart-shaped or small nar-
row round decollete effect to the
centre of the bodice.
