spoke to the boy and girl adventur

MONG those present in every as
semblage of the fashionably clad,
there are many that wear capes, and
their number seems to increase every
day and everywhere. For all sports,
for street and travel, for day and
evening, there are capes and more
capes, so that any woman with an am
bition to wear this most debonair of
garments would hasten to gratify it.
Probably the new materials used are
partly responsible for its great vogue
and street suits that consist of a one
piece dress with cape to match, In
stead of a coat, promote its reign. To
the knickerbocker and coat suits of
wool worn for golfing, devotees of that
sport add a cape to match for extra
warmth when it is needed.
A generous supply of materials
suited to capes for utility wear in
cludes both wool and silk weaves.

these capes look like a steamer rug
In a new role. The cape at the left
