BY SYLVESTER RAH LING.
TITTA HUFFO, the much heralded
II.OOO a night baritone of Mr.
tpel'i Philadelphia -Opna
Company, made his New Yorli
Oetuit at the .Metropolitan Opera House
lest night at the first performance this
eann hy th vlslUag organization In
ho UUs part of Ambrolse Thomas
"Hamlet." The home was crowded to
capacity and hundreds were turned
attsy. There were stories afloat In tho
lobbies of extraordinary prices paid t.i
peculators for jingle seats. Mr. Ruffo's
tlcdrne was n ovation. For anything
like It one has to recall the exceptional
manifestations over 'a.ruso that, from
U.H0 to time, have been made In this
house, or those over Tetrazzlnl, When
Mr. Ilammersteln dUcloaed her to' the
Pf. rons Of t!:e Manhuttan Opi-ra Mouse.
When Mr. Ruffe first appeared there
was applause so vigorous and no Ion
continued that Campanlnl. who was con
ducting, recognising the'futlllty of try
Ing to continue, halted the action until
tt had subsided. At the end of the ftrst
act, the house rose to the slnnr re
calling him time anfl again before the
curtain to receive Its plaudits. The el!-
max was readied nf cr his singing of j
the drill kin song In the second act.
Then the applause, which wan deafen-
r, was accentuated by c-ies of "His!"
and "rtrara"' and by the wiylnr of
hands and of handkerchiefs. All In va'n
ere bis repeated appearances before
the curtain to how and to smile hs
tfia.nks last he exchanged some
STords wlfli rampanlnl and the scene
wan done over again, only to bring on
another denionstr.it Ion of like character.
An outrage on art. If you will, but this
Is a record of fact.
8 ept'cs whispered of the presence of
a clanne. but who that surveyed the
?ene Impartially eoirid countenance the
belief From the orchestra, from the
boxes, from the luilconics, from the gal
lery, as well as- from the massed
y standees behind Her eertl, the applause
Irtmc Impartially and equally. At the
box office It n js jwld there had bren no
aa!e of seats In blocks. If there Is n
ge:ilun In town who can plan and carry
cut such a t-uccessful demonntrat'lo
he should be wowfci mare than rt,M

The Constant Evolution of Style at the
House of Fashions Is Responsible for This
Disposal of About 500 Imported & Domestic Coats
At Savings of 25 to 40 Per Cent.
AlthouRh 500 Coats and Wraps are a mi-re drop in the
bucket we do not wish lo eholn our stock with a broken size
:nd miscellanies until the very end of thTe season, so we have
lowered prices to such a degree that they will virtually be wings
to carry the coats away in a hurrv.
Every Coat and Wrap, whether imported or domestic, was
made for us this season.
The charm and beauty of the styles are quite proved by
the fact that aixea are broken. In the instance of the imported
modell, we have lessened prices because the variety is dwindling.
As (here may h' only one or a few Coats of a model, ue have
grouped them thus: '
I'aquin model, $225, was $395- Green plush and moleskin.
Callot model, $175, was $275-White brocade, with white
Drecoll model, $276, was $395 Gold velour and antique
silver lace, with skunk collar.
Bernard model, $160, waa $276 Black matelasse and sable
squirrel. , .
Premet model, $160, was $250 White brocaded velour.
Paquin model, $146, was $185 Blue pliuUi with moleskin.
Bechoff-David model, $160, was $250 Blue moire with
Callot model, $160, was 29ft Embroidered taupe plush.
Bernard model, $196, was $295 Hand-beaded black plush
with black fox.
Drecoll model, $160, was $197.50 Taupe plush with sable
$47.50, $65, $82.60 and $110, were $76 to $160
Imported Afternoon and Kveninu Wraps.
Plain and brocndwl velvet, brocaded charmeusc and
other luxurious silks- embroidered and variously trim
med with ii.ari.bou and fur.
$24.60, $32.60 and $47.60, were $32.60 to $86-
Domestic Coats and Wraps.
ChanneUM and Satin, trimmed with brocadea and
velvets. GROUP D
$27.60 and $36, were $36 and $60- Black Uengaline
Coats, embroidered and braid-trimmed.
GROUP H $14.76, $19.60, $25 and $32.50, were $19.60 to $62.60.
Imported and Domestic Street, Motoring and Traveling Coats of chinchilla cloth, English
mixtures and other smart woolens some fur-trimmed. Third rioor
$36, were $60 to $62.60 Velvet Coats- some beau
tifully trimmed with braid.
$18.60, were $20.60- Klerk Velveteen Coats, lined
with broadeloth of a contrasting color, others trimmed
with braid- ulso Wrnps of velvet.
$10, $19.60 and $26, were $26 to $60 Wraps of
broadcloths in all the evening shades.
The Success of This Gimbel Linen Store
Depends as Much on Honest Statement
As It Does on Pure and Honest Flax
There is hardly an agency so powerful in building up a successful business aa
the simple method of making the merchandise live up to its advertising.
We enforce this rule rigidly in exploiting Gimbel Linens.
The Linens we sell stand firmly on their merits. And New York women, good
shoppers that they are, have been quick to realize this fact. The steady growth
of the Gimbel Linen business on staple lines, testifies to this fact.
All Gimbel Linens sold on the Second Floor, are pure flax.
This pure flax standard relieves us of any temptation to wink at adulteration
in linens. Again, our careful scrutiny of values prevents us from advertising as
"special," that which you can buy all the yearround at the same price.
Just Now Every Housekeeper Is Busy 4
Buying Her Thanksgiving Linens
Anil the ('.imliel Linen Store is superbly rendy to meet her every requirement. Besides the
splendid stock it offers, there is the additional advantage, by our direct methods of importation, of
saving 10 to 15 per cent, on the prices that other stores must charge, who do not apply such methods.
This at our regular prices, mind you- our special offerings show even greater savings.
Among the TABLE LINENS, for example,
there is a wonderful group from one of the proud
est oltl linen-making concerns of Dunfermline,
Scotland, who sell their goods only to the finest
tons- half a dozen, perhaps, in America, in
cluding (ilMHELS. We have these Linens in
seventy-five pattern!, Including many reserved
to us; and ranging in price from $3.25 to $31 for
Tablecloths, from 2x2 yards, to 2) jj x (5 yartls,
with Naokins to match.
From Belfast comes another fine Liner family,
in which there are Tablecloths, from 2 x 2 v:rds
to 2ib yards, at $3.75 to $57.60. These
also have Napkins to match,
Belgium is famous for its fine Flemish Linens,
ami here is a splendid group of Tablecloths from
$4.76 to $14, from a noted Antwerp firm.
