Of Interest to tOomen
Many Smart Styles to Complete
Tailored Costumes.
Every woman knows that she must have
a tailored coat suit, and that in her care
for other part? of her wardrobe she must
never allow herself to neplect this one par
ticular costume. This helnjr so. it natural
ly follows tnat the question of correct
gloves for wear with taller costumes Is
one of great importance. Although these
gloves are slwavi more or less severe in
style they are not wanting in variety, and
it is quire worth while to plve a little
thought to finding those that are effective
as we! as serviceable.
Among the most desirable gloves for gen
eral wear are the imported washable ones
of doeskin. an natural and white,
which have two large pearl buttons and
sell lor $". 50. At the same price there are
leather gloves of mannish cut. with eltner
two buttons or two clasps, which are suit
able for Liking or shopping- for this
purpose there are also moctia gloves— more
commonly known as castor— gray, tan
and black, at $1. and others to be bought
at this price are heavy ones of cape skin
with only one (asp To accompany the
tailored costume when it goes calling in tne
afternoon there are suede pique gloves,

shades, with two clasps or two buttons,
and also similar models in glace.
For formal occasions, with the gowns tney
demand, on© may wear gloves quite differ
ent in character from those that have been
described. Among the new things shown
by one of the Broadway* Shops are dress
gloves with little groups of gold or steel
beaxis in the stitching on the backs. Among
the most beautiful of these are the ones in
pearl with steel beads, white with gold, and
black with gold. The beads, which are
very fine, are ot glass, with the gold and
steel on the insiie, so that they do not
loose their brightness With wear.

Sir: Will you please settle a vexed ques

married and died, leaving a widow and
one aon. In course of time the son mar
ried and died, leaving a widow and one
eon. Now. bow shall we distinguish be
tween the two Mrs. Browns: the mother-in
law and the daughter-in-law. Or. in other
words, is it correct to say Mrs. Brown, sr..
and Mrs. Brown. Jr.?
Plainlield. N. J. Oct. '-'
[if the Christian names of Mr Brown
and hi« sen were alike, then the elder
Mrs Brown is Mrs. John Brown, sr.,
and th» daughter-in-law is Mrs. John
Brown, jr. It fa also customary to speak
of a widow who is the head of a family
as Mrs. Brown, and of the daughter-in-law
as Mrs. Tom. Dick or Harry, according to
the name which prefaces the Brown. This
eliminates the necessity of using ar or jr..
and is often preferred by the mother-in -

Wedding Silver
riany of the articles produced by the Silver
smiths of older days are now among the artistic
treasures of the world and deservedly cherished:
but no earlier artist ever manifested a deeper
appreciation of his art or of the beauty latent in
the metal than do the trained craftsmen who
create and fashion the productions in silver of
The Gorham Company.
These present-day productions are offered in
so wide a variety that individual preference as to
article, pattern or cost may well be exercised; but
all alike are true to the best traditions and faithful
to the highest standards.
They possess the supreme quality of beauty and
integrity of workmanship which insure immediate
appreciation as well as permanent satisfaction.
