riarstood all the curves and angles of
hats so well that a mere glance at a
would-be purchaser enaoled them to
know at just what tilt the chateau
would bs becoming to madame. They
would slip on wraps and coats and show
these off with the grace of professional
raannlklns, to It was not to b wondered

to the treasuries of the hospitals took
quite a bit of figuring up each night.
