'new and rarely beaiuitifful
creations' have lately arrived from
Paris, the regal suunnptniousiniess of
which seems to indicate that the
"reign off ' gilt" ns to Ibe continued
through another season. The Ameri
can productions, however, are scarcely
less magnificent and, certainly, not
less appealing; even the simplest off
them having a charm which is quite
distinctively feminine. Not the least
distinguished feature off the new dis
play is the assemblage off outergar
ments for sports wear smart novelties
that would go far toward popularizing
the out-of-door life with even the most
indolent off womankind.
Asses' TaSiloredl Suits
Charmingly youthful ' models,
these, introducing the newest
effects in Eton jackets, box coats,
belted coats, and the extremely novel
three-piece affairs-, that will most di
rectly appeal to the demoiselle who con
fesses -to a distaste for the ubiquitous
blouse. The materials are as varied
as the styles, some very chic 'results
being obtained with silk duvetyn,
others with tricotine, serge and taffeta.
Embroideries and braided, designs are
prominent among the decorative fea
tures. Tile prices range from $48.00
to $275.00. v (Second Floor)

Several Tflnoiuisainid Yards of
36 inches wide, in an attractive variety
of the smart colors (with a generous
selection off all-white, all-black and
the ever popular navy blue)
at the extraordinarily low price of
this being about one-half the price
generally quoted for this quality.'

Jmported Hosiery for Meira
That Fashion regards the needs off
the sterner sex with the same
kindly indulgence as those off the
gentler is clearly evidenced in the
new display of lisle half-hose just
received from France, the colors of
which 'must infallibly appeal to that
'-, - .esthetic sense with which the. man off
taste is so generously endowed .
There is also a recent importation
(from England and Scotland) of woolen
