One store had for Its recent display

at the Theatre des Varieties in Paris,
There lias probibly been no time
when there has been greater doubt as
to what may be the next turn in Fash
ion's wheel, and this was shown in the
choosing of the gowns exhibited. The
Directolre type mingled freely with
the crinoline styles of the early Victo-.
rlan period; the st right lines of the'
former style, with its coats short in
front and long behind, contrasting
forcibly With berulled skirts reeded to
stand away from the body, and with'
one example of the daintiest of cliilTon
and organdy pantalettes exposed at
Among tne coats ana wraps were
many capes They were very full at i
the back, and sometimes fastened to a
a loose-tittlng sleeveless vest. Talleta
and moire were used for those for even
ing wear, while broadcloth and du
vetyne were used for street and after
noon wraps. A handsome coat of taf
feta was shown. It was very full in
the back, blousing over an exaggerat
edly low waistline, below which hung
a plain circular peplum Several
jackets had a cape of the same male
rial fastened to the shoulders and
hanging to the waist. One had double
circular capes which came just below
A smart tailored suit of tan ladles'
cloth had a short jacket with body and
sleeves In one. It was short in front :
but in the back was cut with a panel
rounding at the bottom, which extend
ed well below the waist. A Japanese
collar and cuffs trimmed the waist of
checked tan, green and yellow cloth.
The skirt had two pleated rutlles of
the checked goods about eight Inches
wide, each headed with a bias band of
the Ian. A crushed girdle of the
checked material ended in long ends,
which were attacked in the back well
below the line of the lower ruflle.

Among the jackets, the kimono cut
was most prominent, by far exceeding
the raglan or set-in sleeves This cer
tainly should please the woman who
makes her own clothes. A tan Jacket,
made in this manner, was very short in
front and longer in the back. A circu
lar piece was attached just below the
bustline, about three inchees wide,
fitting plainly in the front and gradu
ating to eight inches in the back,
where it was very full and ripply.
The skirt had a tunic which bloused
over in the back.
Tunics and panniers were on all
skirts except the milled crinoline ones.
They were plain, draped and puffed,
short and long, until it is safe to say
that the length may be governed by tne
most becoming line to the figure. Some
reached acrossed the front only, others
crossed the back, while still another
mode had gathered pieces at either
side not meeting in front or back.
Striped skirts are worn with plain
jackets. A black and white striped
taffeta skirt was scalloped on the bot
tom and bound with ribbon. The
coatee worn with It was of black taffeta.

extra fullness added by two tucks
caught under a band of Indian bead
