Our selections from the Chicago exhibits of "HORSE SHOW
JMILLNEItY" have arrived, and will he exhibited on Friday.
The most fashionable event of the year is the great Horse
Show, and the smart set in the Chicago social swim demands
all the Parisian innovations for this occasion. Late Paris ad
vices fully confirm the decidedly new trend of Millinery models,
and the leading millinery artists of (hucago have fully met
every requirement of the most exacting fancy.
PROMINENCE is especially given to the LARGE, PIC
TURESQUE TYPES IN BLACK, trimmed with great clusters
of soft plumes, or elaborate wings and breasts. It has never
been our privilege to give first introduction to such a dis
tinctive gathering of refined, artistic Horse Show Millinery. A
critical reyiew of our display will be an education in the
very latest Millinery thoughts of the masters.
"The Cage," "The FisfSs," "The Keith's" best specials are
