enough to take liberties with the truth.
V Right now in the Berry Store there are more

storm coats, Raglans, kimono sleeve effects, con
servative models for the man whose life is a
monotony of good behavior, and ulsters cut on
clean, lean, military lines, with half a dozen varie
ties in the matter of pleats and belts, with patch,
vertical or crescent pockets, and that wonderful
convertible collar which is transformed into a
storm effect as easily as an automobile is pulled
from second gear into high!
