LADIES' AND MISSES' BLOUSE.
Some of our patrons have quite a mistaken
idea concerning these garments, and are under
the impression that they were designed only
for House-wear, Picnics etc. -True, nothing
could be more appropriate than these garments;
they are cool, comfortable, convenient and at
the same time pretty. But they are also a very
fitting street garment, and are quite as popular
for street wear in Eastern and' Northern cities
as the tight-fitting' waists.
