iS TUB two girls faced each other
-In Mrs. Raymond Senior's living
room there did not seem to be one point
ln common betvieen them, but It Ruth
had known It there was just ono point
upon' which both she and Alice would
'coincide, Scott's Bohemian friends. Alice
would be likely to disapprove of them
t because 'Jiey wero not conventional Just
as Ruth did, but Inasmuch as neither
of the girls would ever be drawn any
Closer to each other by this Blight bond
It need hardly be mentioned.
Alice Barry had been married two
years, nnd she was, two years older than
Scott. She and Scott had never agreed
.on anything:, therefore when she had
gone "West with ljer husband Scott had
not regretted her departure. She was
short and quite plump. She had sleek
hrown hair and brown eyes. Ruth
thought her quite plain until Bhe smiled
and then there was something: vastly
attractive about her. She had rather a
pretty mouth with a ntther full lower
Jlp and broad white teeth. She was not
smartly dressed; In fact- she looked
dowdy, although everything she had on
was of good material and she certainly
was not shabby. She had her mother's
tailored Ideas without Mrs. Raymond's
frills and accessories.
Sesldo Alice, Ruth looked almost lux-
Rfyrlous. Her tawny hair was as usual,
I rurncQ. Airs, itaymonu insisteu inai buh
l i-atnnVA tha ftmnll hat. and although silo
demurred slio was finally forced to com
ply, Her hair was beautiful Just ns
Scott loved it, with a hundred high
lights arid warm shadows; but. Ruth saw
I- Alice look at It disapprovingly and
Wished she had stopped to pin It tighter.
Ruth's clothes were, of course, perfectly
chosen, and her tall, slim young flguro
looked well In anything; theroforo the
little' squirrel coatee over tho simple
blue serge dress with Its round neck
looked sumptuous bealdo the blue satin
dress that Alice wore Alice had obvl
Qi)ly taken a course In home dress
making and had made her own dress,
while' Ruth's clothes had been made,
by some one accustomed to cutting per
' Scott's greeting of Alice was care-
lir-lessly bluff, Alice's sisterly kiss was
receivea amiiuny oy jiuin, una mo mur
cat down to talk and get acquainted,
'Mr, Raymond wos not present and Ruth
was sorry. She liked her tall' rather
quietly humorous father-in-law j liked
hlrn much tetter than Scott's mother,
with whom she never felt at ease.
Both girls were Instantly prejudiced
Against each other, for to do Mrs. Ray
mond credit she had told Atlco nothing
beforehand, But Alice with the envy
In hwvlieart that every girl feels ln tha
presence of soma one who is better
dressed and wears her clothes Incom
parably better, Instantly decided that
Ruth was frivolous and too fond of In-
r, onsequentlal things. Ruth thought

have to do too much for her In the. way

Alice knew quite well what she was

kid the advantage of being In her
Ih wisher's home. It was Ruth who was

"How's, Herbert t" asked Sc9tt.

had done what he had In the worthiest
kind of a cause.
"I never even think about It. It seems
years ago," Scott returned, "You have
only to live a few weeks m New York
to forget all about any other experience.
It gets Into the blood somehow ; one for
gets about everything big and gets to be
Just a New Yorker."
"I know I wouldn't llva here, and I
wouldn't havo Bert here for tho world;

to worry about her husband," said Alice
"I don't think I want to worry about
my husband," said Ruth, flushing at the

New Coats for
$25 and $35
Many Are Half Price, Many
Are Reduced a Third
A collection of beautiful coats distin
guished for the
and careful tailoring
that have entered into their making. The
materials are of the qualities usually found
only in coats of much higher prices. The
linings are of lovely silks and they are put in
by hand. Many of the collars are of fur, gen
Most of the coats are new, having been
bought for half price, though coats from our
own stock, similar to these in quality, have
been reduced in price to meet these.
Duvet de laine
These are in the most fashionable colorings and in
many styles; they have cpllars of nutria or sealene,
and one style in silvertone has no fur. All are lined
with striped or plain silk.
Two stylc3 at this price arc sketched.
One is of velour with a Rcnerous cape collar of scalene.
It is lined throughout with plain or striped silk, the buttonholes
are all hand-piped and the coat would repularly be marked twice
this sum. $25.
The other Is also of velour with a shawl collar of nutria or
sealene; it is fully lined with striped silk. In taune, burgundy,
green and brown. You enn remove this collar in the spring nnd
have a spring coat. $25.
Pompom Velour Silvertone
Beautifully tniloicd coats, lined throughout with plain or
striped silk. Some are samples, individual in style. Two coats
of which we have sizes arc sketched.
Ono coat is designed especially for young women. It is of
green, brown or taupe velour, lined with silk, nnd topped with a
shawl collar of scalene. $35.
The other is nlso of velour in burgundy, taupe and brown
with an extra largo shawl collar of soft, full-furred raccoon. $35.
PLEASE NOTE that these are not $25 or
( $35 coats in anything but price. They are such
' coats as you would expect to pay twice as much
for, in many instances. Too much cannot be
said for their excellence in style, material
and finish. Christmas money put into coats like
these will be a paying investment.
