Have you seen the backless waist
coat, the twn button coat and the re
Ouke of the ruhrali trousers? It you
have visitenl vuiir tailor for that new
spring suit, you have. I'.ei-ause the tali
'ur Is showini; them in all their couieli
Kadi tiprini;, of course, the j;ods v.f
fashion lead out sme uulookcil fur
change, soinuthiii that makes that
jioiid old left over suit from last year
uppetir just slightly oft'." It's not a I
radical change, but it is eiioiii:!i t
eau.-'e your friends to notice, says the
Kansas City Star. And even men dis
like to have their friends ivcoiruiisv' the
l:;st year's cut. I'.ut if you want to be
a correct dresser don't put on your
last year's suit this sprinir and venture
.'nun your homo. Ueeaus.' your friends
can tell that something's wi'oiit;.
This season the correct coat is lout;,
but still just a trihV shorter than that
of last. It has a slight "dip" la fr.nii.
or, in other words, is a bit longer fore
than aft. There are four packets with
t'.aps two on the side. ttu breast pock
et ami the ticket or match pocket. The
Haps are essential. It was incorrect
last year to have the ticket pocket oj
the outside. It was proper to have It
concealed. Rut it was so unhandy that
the fashion makers wanned their
hearts enough to put it this year where
It can be used.
Another striking feature of the coat
this spring is the absence of shoulder
padding. The old "blocky" style, the
kind that made a puny desk man look
like a prize tighter or boilermaker, li
entirely changed. In its place will le
seen a graceful, rounding roll in no
way suggestive of the athlete. The
coat will barely follow the curve of
. o -l I ! in WniNtcoiitN.
A number of novelties are shown in
waistcoats. The oddest is the one with
:io back. This model piece of suiting
lit.-; snugly over the shoulders, with a
mere neck baud behind. A sort of belt
fastens it at the waist. The only ex
cuse for this waistcoat is that it is
cooler than the other kind. Fancy
waistcoats will be worn in light colors.

'Trousers will be only slightly pe;r
topped. The tendency is to make them
more "leg shapvd." such as were worn
before the "r lhrahs" were inflicted.
Ami it is extremely incorrect to wear
them creased at the lmttom. The tailor
says they should show no crease what
ever in the foot band. A few roll top
trousers will be worn, but they will
not demand them. The same may 1
said of roll cuffs on the sleeves of
"Indications are that gray will again
be the prevailing color." a tailor said.
"The grays came in such pretty shade-.-
last year that fashion makers have de
creed tliey snail reign another season.
Medium shades of in-own, club checks
and the Irrepressible blue will be popu
lar. Clothing in general will be more
conservative. No extremes o! any kind
will be seen. Even the vents or 'splits'
in the back of coats are forbidden. I
really believe the clothing is more sen
sible than any shown in several years."
There Is little change in the style of
men's hats. The derbies are medium
sized, with slightly curved brim. The
telescope or flat topped soft hats will
be generally worn. Negkties are o?
"soft" colors, in no way gaudy. Small
checked plaids will be popular. Shirts
will show a small dot or delicate
stripe. The pear shaped bosom, which
"will not puff." says the maker. Is be
ing shown, but no unexpected rush
has been made for them.
The most remarkable offering just
now is the white rubber. These shoes
are perfectly white and aro certainly
striking. Imagine a white rubber on a
Mack shoe'. I5ut they are really leing
made, $1.50 for men's sizes, $1.25 fotr
women's and 75 cents and $1 for chil
dren's. "The spring overcoat shows absolute
ly no change from last year," one tai
lor said, "excepting the lack in shoul

New Invention That Police Say
The newest invention in things for
holding prisoners is a "thumb cuff."
It is the size of a watch and weighs
three ounces and may be carried in the
waistcoat pocket. Police officers say
it will displace the handcuff, which has
been used on prisoners so many years.
The thumb cuff is the invention of a
man in Chicago, says the Kansas City
Star. It is made to clasp the thumbs
just be!;w the middle joint. It is so
shaped that the thumbs may be lockitl
siftirely together, and unless a key is
used the lock cannot be taken oft with
out tearing away a thumb. An olli
cer of the law can carry enough thumb
cuffs in his pocket to securely fasteu a
string of fifty prisoners. If be was to
try to carry enough handcuffs for this
many men he would be carrying some
thing like lifteen p.nmds of steel.
There is danger in handcuffs. Pris
oners have been known to knock offi
cers senseless with the cuffs on their
wrists. It is impossible to hurt any
one with this new invention. So long
as a prisoner is peaceable the thumb
cuff will not injure him. Hut If he
goes to swinging his arms he'll feel it
pressing into the bone.

AUTO SAVINGS BANK.
Car Visits Depositors

America holds the palm for night
and day, mail order and ladies' banks,
but Kngland is the first to utilize the
automobile in finance.
In Manchester there has lieeii incor
porated recently an "auto saviugs
bank." which visits the depositors in
the shape of a touring car auto, fitted
up as a miniature bank, says the Wall
Street Summary. A large safe, u wire
screen cage, two counters and desk:;
for liook keeper and cashier, are its
In addition to the ollicials named the
president and vice president are al
ways present. Country districts, ham
lets, farmhouses, factories, etc., arc
visited with regularity, savings receiv
ed and withdrawals permitted.
It Is an adjunct of a long estab
lished bank In Manchester, and should
this initial attempt succeed a regular
auto field service will be instituted to
teach the country citizen thrift and In
crease the bank's earnings. What n
harvest "Dick Turpin" would reap Lf
he were now in the flesh!
