Now York. The zero hour mny linve
ended for tho army, but It sends n
shiver of memory, nnd prospect
through us. Hentlcss houses, ley

nrtlflclal hent, nnd our ncrvoui resist

activity to wlthMnnd these three
plnsues, has permitted us to fall easy
victims to the fourth and tho worst
plnguo that leaped upon us from tho
occnii last autumn.
Tho war Is over, but the cold ap
proaches. Tho soldiers need not fear
tho zero hour, but tho American wom
en must fear It, warns a prominent
fashion correspondent. It may be that
wo will get tip cold and go to bed cold.
We may eat half-warm meals In front

regard of tho pleasnnter amenities of

This Is not pclmlsm. It is n retro
spect of actualities. Nonu of us cs

the presence of Intense cold and lack
of coal, Just as clean nnd dirty, weal

Influenza germ. Xono wero spared

Warmth Is tho Fashion.
Lot us say that It Is tho fashion to
near warm clothes, and the Individual
tvlll follow the fashion as the customs
of n country follow Its Hag. Wo movo
In herds, nnd nil thu civilization In tho
world has not been ablo to cradicato
this primordial Instinct, So when you
go out to buy your winter outfit, say
to yourself that warmth Is the fashion;
that protection to tho body by proper
apparel Is smart; that peltry, velours,
quilted linings, high shoes, big neck
pieces, muffs for the hands, nnd even
foot warmers for tho feet, aro tho very
height of style.
To dress In transparent clothes Is to
show ono's self behind tho times. To
wear negligible costumery that half

unobservant of thu rules of tho game.
And not only must wo wear warm
clothes on tho street, but they may bo

very probnblo that they will be. Thero
Is small doubt about It under tho now

Many of us nro used to SO, and tho

Wo may tnko ns our only comfort that

No medical expert, however great, will

Therefore, thu clothes thnt aro to

Tassels nnd Irlngo both beenmo so
popular last summer that thero was
somo doubt about their remaining In
favor with women who dress well. But
they have both been retained, In spite
of their popularity, and somehow by
using them in new and unusual ways
tho designers of pmiirt clothes tm
give them distinction. Ono new way"
or using long jet tassels is to fasten'
ono pendant ou each sido of tho brim!
