rounds of shopping, one falls to come
upon what we recognise a "a bargain."
Linens and woolens In fabrics by the

Almost every lady has her dress skirt
made In deml-traln. and now and then
such Is set n upon the street, sometimes

women who must jro afoot have the
good taste to have their walking dresses

There is not much in the way of new
fashions to record. The most pro-

best known to herself, dees not v.ant
to wear a low-rut gown, no rarire be
