SOMETHING ABOUT SHOES.
Old FttMliiuiiM Hcled nml New OneM
Eoled to Suit Everybody.
The old-fashioned Congress gaiter Is be
ing reUved; the most fashionable shoe
makers are displaying women's and misses
fcboes with patent leather vamps, cloth up
pers, and elastic sides that permit the shod
to be easily slipped on. It Is, however, a.
style of shoe which Is not likely to find
much favor. Slippers are of many styles'
and varlestics, ranging from the very low
opera cut to the high, buckle-trimmed Louis
Heelsare us uaUy of medium height, thongh.
some women still cling to the unmodified
French, heel, despite the arguments so'
constantly made against Its use. Slippers
are trimmed with embroidery in black,
steel and gilt, or with ribbon bows; or Jet,
gilt and iridescent beads.
Gilded slippers arc as much the rage as
the red ones are tabooed! It nas always'
been more or less the custom for slippers
to be known by the name of the leading
prima donna or theatrical favorite ot thd
Carriageslioes arc a luxury of the wealthy,
and almost a necessity to those who" do1
mudi driving In the cokl months pr the,
year. They are in shape very much like
the old-fashioned Congress gaiter, only left
loose nt the sides to allow of their being
casilyput on and taken off. Felt.llnedwlth
fnr, or fur lined with quilted ami wadded
silk or satin, are the kinds most in demand,
These shoes are useful not only for driv
ing but, also, as nn outer covering to be
worn over thin shoes to parties, balls and
receptions. For the latter purpose, one
of the women's exchanges shows -a novel
ty; it is a rubber overshoe, to which Is
knitted a long Mack legging; an clastlcband
Is placed at the top to hold It In place, and
the whole forms one of the most useful,
servicable, easily donned and reasonable
in price of over-cot erings. for shoes.
