On Friday, Oct M), we will have our first
showing of Exquisite and Suitable Styles for St.
Louis's great coming event.
"THE HORSE SHOW."
Our Miss Ilcnncssy is in the East making choice ami
arii d selections of all the newest ami latest conceptions
that Fashion prescribes Correct and Smart Headwenr for
a Brilliant Horse Show. So we will be prepared with an
unusually jrootl display, gathered from the best-known le
Mfjners and makers, comprising a variation from which
the hardest-to-plcase woman will find no trouble in jetting
Our showing of Millinery is not only the largest in
St. Louis, but the best as to variety and style. An exhibit
that should surely be seen by every woman who wants to
keep in touch with all that is latest and best.
We have tlressv little Bonnets for the stviish matron,
handsome Lace liats. pretty tlowercd Toques, nobby Vel
Special prices that mean economy and satisfaction.
For those who wear no hats we have the chic Hair Hows,
the dainty horseshoe bands of scented violets, pompons of
maline ribbon, ostrich and flowers. Aigrettes in soft, stub
and paradise. Everythinjr and anything, and at all prices
suitable for the Horse Show.
Are always up to the modes; the models are constantly
being changed. As soon as the swagger modistes
evolve a creation in gowns, so soon does a La Vida
model appear appropriate for wear with the new
vogue. Some very beautiful models have just reached
us. They are straight front with rather long hips,
designed for the popular hip-tight skirts. We should
like ou to examine them; they are handmade and
whaleboned. La Yidas are always full gored and
bias cut, which is one of the many reasons for their
great popularity. (Second Floor.)

In th8 railway world the names of B.

of the Westerner.
In Elliott's career there Is In almost
every respect. ae that of deserved suc
cess, the antithesis cf WlncheJ's.
Tbe president of the Northern Pacific
represents the Easterner who has learned
not only to appreciate the posiblllt'.es of
tbe, West, but to avail hlmeHf of them.
Born In New York City In 1S. a gra tu
ate of Harvard, he entered the rallw iy
service when he was J years oW as a
rodman In lie engineering corpj of the
Burlington, remaining with that roal
through ail of Its changes until a few
days ago. when he became p-eadent of
tbe Northern Pacific.
Wlnchell has devot-d all or his leisure
to a study of the classics and the fine
arts, with tbe resuit that he can speak
upon music. palnUng and literature with
the accuracy of one gifted with a goon

Both Wlnchell and Elliott are gifted
with heads that nothing can rattle. Ever at
their ease and ever able to srasp any prop

derstood how their many friends In St.

Socially, both are delightful companions,
affable and possessing an unlimited fund
of appropriate anecdotes with which to

appropriate to close by saying that the
