Of the New Season.
It is a trifle too early as yet for ALL the new Fall Goods to
be in. They are coming along rapidly and scarcely a day
passes without our receiving some important shipment of
new Autumn Merchandise; but, for all that, it will be quite a
little while yet before our Pall showings will be absolutely
complete. There are here, however, no small number of al=
luring forerunners of the new season==freshly arrived goods,
of many kinds and classes, that foreshadow the fads and
fancies of Fashion for this Fall. Any woman who likes to be
well posted on matters of style can spend an hour or so very
pleasantly and profitably in looking over these brand new
arrivals. Every style shown is a correct one==as no one
knows THE HUB'S policy will need to be assured.
Every woman feels intensely interested in learning what
will be the favorite fabrics for wear this Fall and Winter.
We are already in a position to partially answer this ques=
tion, and to display some of the most notable of the new fab=
ric novelties. Space precludes any further talk about them
here; but these are their names and prices:

shades, including black, blue, green,
tan and garnet, worth $1.25, at

For Early Fall Wear
Our milliners have been busy of late in turning out a se
ries of charming Hats for early Fall wear?Hats that in
form and style are exactly suited to the season and that cost
comparatively little. You will not want your Winter Hat
for some time yet. One of these Fall Hats will be just the
thing to wear in the interim. They are in new and dressy
effects; and their prices are but $1.00 to $3.00 each.
