If there Is any more delightful diver
sion for a hot summer day than specu
lating on winter styles the feminine
mind has not found It- Fortunately
enough, observes a fashion corresnond-
ent, authentic Information has floated
In from fashion centers to give form
and color to wardrobe planning.
The thermometer never soared so
high that a woman could not be pleas
ant as she pictures herself In a new
fall suit cut on the latest lines. Lines,
you see, for there are three lengths
In new suit coats, the hip length coat,
the flmjer tip length and the very long
coat The lines of the long coats are
as graceful as one could wish, often
deep revers extending almost to the
wnlstllne give a decorative touch to
the new suit Then there Is the very
long coat made with a long waistline
Moused a bit perhaps, and buttoned
itraight up the chin, for the swathed
neck line In suits Is full of promise.
Skirts are straight, wide enough
to permit the wearer to walk comfort
ably and nine Inches from the flooi
at the present The tailored suit will
hesitate a few months before It fie
cides to give In to the dictum of
longer skirts. Dresses have uc
cumbed. the suit will In time.
As to color the suits are dark blui
or black with an occasional variation
as the fahrics advance from th
various twill cord of autumn Into th
soft pile fabrics of winter.
The hat lends the color. Flame
colored felt, or spark. If you like the
new term better, lovely grays and
soft shades of roe that defy a name
are "the firstlings of the season."
"Where Is the waNtllne In the new
coat dresses? Inquired a shopper. An
swers the buyer authoritatively,
"About four Inches lower than the
nonnaf waistline: there the panels
begin to flutter and fly. for the
straight-line dress has panels galore,
and a panel to fulfill Its mission must
drop below the hem of the skirt," so
the longer skirt was reconciled, for
you can compromise, you know, by a
short skirt and long panels and be
very smartly dressed. The yards and
yards of 'silk braid on just one of the
new dresses would make a love of
a kite string.
There'3 no half way place in sleeves,
either the frock lias them or It's
sleeveless. The long, flowing sleeve,
which adds grace to a garment and
charm to nine out of every ten arms.

For suits, coats and dresses the
sleeve takes varied line, the kimono
sleeve Is close-fitting at the armhnle
and widens from the elbow to the

cuffed elaborately, which Is n welcome

variety. Or n sleeve may be

COLORS FOR PRACTICAL USE
Browns and Grays are Next to Black
and Navy in Point of Dur.
Browns and grays worn a great
Jeal at this time, are next to black ,
and navy In point, of durability, but
jne wearies of brown and It Is so ex
tremely difficult to get out of It. If
originally every detail of the cos
tume has been mutt-lied up. A brown
hat Is not efttH'tUe with anything hut
i brown costume, although a gray hat,
recent experiences have shown. Is
effective with practically everything
not excepting Immn.
Black hats are. of course, the great
economy, for then Is no time nor
place nor costume for which It Is In
bad taste, while a navy hat has a
much more xvtrlitiil sphere.
If women with a minimum amount
of money for their clothes budget
would consider the occasion and the
various color combinations which may
result from one's wardrobe, they
would get a great deal more out of
their clothes than they do. It Is- very
nice, of course. t have hats to match
up with one's drves. an' all acces
sories In keeping, but It Is les cost
ly to select things that may he Jug
gled around and
thing without fenr of Inharmony.
Salt and Dampness..
Salt Is what Is caled "hygrosco
pic, that Is, It eagerly absorbs mois
ture. In fact, both air and salt ar
absorbents of moisture and It Is a
contest between them as to which
gets It Results depend on atmos
pheric conditions. Ordinary atmos
phere always contains a proportion
of moisture, and warm air Is apt to
be more humid than cold, as It ab
sorbs and holds water vapor more
readily than cold air. Salt has such
affinity for moisture that under such
conditions It draws It from the air.
When the air becomes dry, the mois
ture Is given up by the salt which In
turn becomes dry as It returns the
moisture to the air.
