The Stole Yoke.
The new stole yoke readies two
thirds of the distance from chin to

long fronts hook together. It is made
of gold-colored gauze over orange silk,
and it fills the cut-out front of a black
silk prineesse gown.
Coat With Stole Cape niul Tunic.
Mouse coats with skirts or tunics are
exceedingly smart and are much worn
both with skirts to match and as separ
ate wraps. The admirable May Man
ton model shown is of dark gray zebe
llne. stitched with coiiieclli silk, with
the yoke stele and cuffs of a smooth
broad cloth in pale gray finished with
black and white fancy braid, and
makes part of a costume, but all suit
ing and coat materials are appropriate.
The stole cape is a special feature, and
adds materially to the warmth at the
same time that it is eminently stylish
and can be worn separately when de
sired. The blouse coat includes front, back
and under-arm gores and closes in cen
tre front. The upper portion of the
stole forms a yoko that fits smoothly
over the shoulders and is extended at
the fronts, and to its edge is attached
the circular portion that forms the
cape. The tunic is seamed to the.lower
edge, the seam being hidden by the
licit. The sleeves are loose and ample

ranches upon which are constantly em

ranches cover large portions of the dis

Guerreo. Fully 100,000 acres of his es

Every twelve months there is mar

average in price between $20 and $i9

Flexible Metal lloe.
A flexible metal hose is made at
Phorzheim, Germany, by rolling up a
metal band like a screw thread, the
joints being made tight by a cord of
rubber on asbestos. The material is
galvanized steel or phosphor bronze.
The hose is very flexible. Its tendency
to untwist when roughly handled is
overcome by making it double, with op
posite windings. It is intended for
mining purposes, is eight Inches in dia
