Pumpkin pincushions, pretty candlesticks.
catseye jewelry and fancy baskets
and bonbon boxes decorated in Halloween
style make charming favors for
a cotillon of this sort, and of course the
supper table will be highly .significant of
the event, cats, pumpkins, hobgoblins and
witches playing an important part in the
decorations. The menu may also include
appropriate dishes, like fruit and nut
salad, pumpkin tarts, cider and ice cream
in Halloween shapes, which any good
aterer can furnish. Some patties of deliriously
creamed meat were labeled on
the menu card at a Halloween party last
fall "Patties a chat noir," and the patty
shells were set on little mats of suggestive
black fur (cut from an old muff).
The guests made many facetious comments
on the chat noir course, but the
patties were all consumed with evident
relish nevertheless.
Ghostly decorations add much to the
llulloween character of the entertainment,
and If you happen to possess one
of the tall piano lamps, or an ordinary
tall, slender lamp which stands on a
small table, you can concoct a wonderful
spectral ghost which will be certain to
make a tremendous hit. The ghost's
head is made of yellow crepe paper over

used to Increase th's effect of luxury r
and even the most Inexpensive furs when (
made up in the new styles cost a good v
bit more than they did a few seasons ^
ago. r
The wraps also are quite different from f
the straight, conventional affairs of a few c
seasons ago. Once a sealskin coat dif- 5
ferc-d very little from an ordinary ulster n
in style. It was slashed up the back, had i
regulation coat sleeves and a narrow coat t
collar and lapels, and verv often it was s
lined staidly with quilted wadding In the h
somber shade of the brown fur. Nowa- c
days the sealskin wrap is an entirely dif- d
ferent affa r. Its lines are exquisitely d
graceful, and while not defining the figure r
too plainly it gives an effect of slender- a
ness and grace that is truly marvelous. \
considering that it is made of fur and r
lined with heavy brocaded satin. a
Fur coats are really too heavy to wear t
on the street when walking and these s
garments are usually reserved for auto!
mob'le wear or for use over light indoor f
1 frocks in carriage or limousine. On very t
a huge wire frame which sets over the e
ordinary round globe of the lamp. On s
this shade are pasted enormous, slanting t
white paper eyeballs with black pupils I
set at the outer corners, tiery red paper g
nostrils and a terrific red paper mouth h
with white teeth. If these features are 1
cleverly arranged the ghost will have a J
probably fierce and horrible expression.
Yards of white crepe paper are wound in
spiral effect around the tall standard of
the lamp to form "draped skirts," and a
straight tunic of the white paper falls
I from a pleated paper ruche which repre!
sents a i ollar just below the livhtei head.
Arms are made of long strips of pasteboard
and over them fall white tissue
paper "angel" sleeves. Of course the
fingers are cut long and clawlike and the
more rudely fashioned the hands the funnier.

guest cutting a slice in turn. In the cake ;
are hidden various tiny trinkets which
are supposed to hint at the future fortune I
of the recipient. A ring signifies a happy
marriage; a thimble, spinsterhood; a button,
bachelorhood, or. if found by a maid, <
bachelor girlhood; a pen. a library career; <
a pencil, an artistic one; a coin, wealth, 1
and so on. The hostess may use her own <
ingenuity in selecting the cake favors, <
but very tiny ones must be chosen or the l
cake itself will not be a success. i
There are. certain traditionul Halloween i
rites which must not be omitted from the
most up-to-date Halloween party. One
of these is the bobbing for apples game. ?
which is un anolent English custom. Real .
bobbing for apples^-or "ducking" for ap- 1
pies, as It is called very properly?should
be Indulged in only when the Halloween d
party is an informal lark and nobody f
has on anything that a good drenching .
with water will injure. A more moderate
form of -the bobbing for apples game may c
be arranged by the Halloween hostess f
who Is entertaining a party of well j
dressed young people. The apples, great,
rosy affairs, float in bona tide water, but
to each apple atem is attached a little e
red ribbon bow, which may easily be c
caught in the teeth, and when the apple c
is lifted from the water a slip of paper n
is discovered thrust into a slash cut in
one side near the top. On these slips of ?
paper are inscribed various pertinent and 5
pleasant quotations applicable to the dis- ?
coverers.
Some of the new conceits for Halloween
decoration are illustrated. All these
pictures have been made trom photographs d
t
old days the fur coat is seen on the
itreet over little frocks of cashmere or
nohair, but on the bright, clear days of
vhich New York sees so many?when the
nercury hovers between forty and fifty,
ny lady prefers a smart coat and skirt
iuit with a handsome fur neckpiece and
nuflf to the more cumbersome fur wrap.

The fur . coats this season are most
graceful affairs, built on rather narrow
[nes, but roomy enough at the shoulders
o l>e very comfortable over wool frocks.
[*he models for day wear have coat
leeves finished with wide cuffs, and huge
.hawl collars of the fUr or of some conrasting
pelt The very smartest Persian
coats are severely plain in effect,
he richness of the fur being cons dered
iistinction enough without an added
rimming of contrasting pelt. Sometimes
striped border trimming Is contrived by
.rranging strips of the, fur in opposite
Erections, as in one of today's photorapha
which shows a Dreeoll coat of
;enuine sea! in mantle style with a deep
hawl collar, cuffs and border trimming
if the seal striping just described. The
astening is at the left side, below the
caist. two large buttons covered with the
ealekin he ng fastened under an ornanent
of brown silk cord. The richness of
his beautiful coat is apparent at a
dance and no added garniture of skunk,
ipossum or other pelt could add to the
listinction and beauty of the garment as
t is. in ts simple, perfect good taste.
In striking contrast to this beautiful
Dreeoll coat is another sealskin model.

Only the very rich woman now can aford
a coat of teal sealskin or genuine
nink, and as for rable. its price is alnost
prohibitive now that tne Russian
luma has forbidden the trapping of sades
for three years. Sealskin is a most
wice as costly as it was two years ago
ind mink has advanced almost as much
iroportlonately. Even the once-despised
kunk, known to the puiite world variousy
as leutre, brown marten and Alaska

t was two years ago, and the common '
ittle coon may value h s skin at in- !
tead of 70 cents. Fortunately, however, j

furs, there aie many less costly vaieties,
some of them imitations of the
.ristocrat.c seal, fox and sable, made by
lying pleb.an beasts of .the wood and

nuch like sea?; thibet goat when cleverly

ousins; coney looks much like ermine;

kins ftreaked with a paint brush and
rhich deceive nobody. The "brook mink"

he black streak goes clear through the

ellow streaks that are ugly. It is Just

irown sealskin and the soft gray-brown
aoleskin which is used for draped evenng
wraps.

The furs par excellence for dressy
vening and afternoon limousine wraps
re ermine and moleskin. The latter has
oine into favor within the past two seaons
and is now very fashionable. The
oft, lovely grayish brown of moleskin
aatches no other fabric exactly and yet
his adorable fur seems to harmonize
kith all fabric colorings. From a hunIred
and fifty to two hundred skins are
equired to make an ordinary wrap, and
or the voluminous affairs draped in
rlental fashion many more are required,
.loleskin is so soft and pliable, that it
nay be draped as readily as velvet, and
t is usually made up in mantle rather
han coat style, with gracefully draped
leeves and other oriental features. A i
landsome moleskin wrap with trimmings <1
if skunk is illustrated. Another wrap,
lisplayed in a 5th avenue furrier's winlow
this week, is in perfectly plain
nantle style, and to accompany it there
ire a long, soft moleskin scarf, lined :
vith gray silk, and a huge flat muff that |
night be a second scarf doubled over ,1
md softly lined. Both scarf and muff are
rimmed witli long chenille fringe in the
shade of the moleskin. '

chased and the metal is pierced in

lutside the blouse and sometimes the
liain is long enough to allow the silver
laque to swing just outside the front
if the coat. Of course, the chain and

SUITABLE CLOTHES |
FOR OLDER WOMEN
C*XiCBPT in very few Instances, there j
should be no age line in fashions,
rhere is, or should be, a difference in col- n
>rs. and to a certain extent in materials, t
?ut not in styles. On the whole, the t
styles of the day are quite as well suited ^
:o women of one age as of another. . v
In regard to colors, a young girl can p
wear the most startling, trying shades a
md carry them off more or less success- a
'ully, but an older woman has to con- n
sider what is suitable and becoming,, and j
hoose colors that will help her. She j e
?hould avoid bright, harsh shades that
:all for a young, fresh complexion on the
me hand, and the drab tones and dull v
slacks that suggest the old lady on the t
)ther. Dark colors are more becoming p
:o stout figures than light shades that ^
lave a diffusing quality and make a
ivoman look larger than she is. The stout a
woman should never wear all white, or
ight pinks and blues, or yellows. s
Soft, indefinite colors suit an older t
woman better than brighter shades. They t
should avoid all light colors except white, c
aearl. silver and oyster gray, any shade f
if -n/iafarin or nansv color, and
black and white for their gowns and a
iresses. For street suits older women t
should keep pretty close to very dark s
blues, blacks and dark grays. t
t
* * t
If you wear chiffons and veilings in j
your evening dresses, be sure that they i
are weighted properly with fringe or J
beads, or embroidery, so that they will ! 1
fall in straight, limp lines about your
figure. The white fichu that is so smart
on afternoon and evening gowns is a
style that is perfectly suitable for a mld31e-aged
.woman, unless she happens to
be stout. It is hardly a style that looks
well on a large figure.
A coat suit of black and white striped J
serge and a black hat trimmed with white j
wings Is one of the handsomest outfits j
for a woman of mature years. Black and
white fabrics are always stylish, but
care must be taken not to select the
noticeable designs, which attract more
attention than even brilliant color
schemes. A modest black-and-white plaid
Is suitable for any age. but a large, pronounced
plaid is too loud for a conservative
woman. The same rule holds for
stripes. There are striped goods in most
?xquisite taste, and others may be called
stunning, but they will not he chosen by
the woman who does not want her
clothes to have a sort of a sign-board
cnect.
*
* *
Proper black and white is always a
safe purchase. The combination of black
and white in which the black is worn
bver the white Is among the smartest
color tones. An embroidered black chiffon
over white satin is often seen in the
handsome imported gowns, and black
chiffon waists over white silk or satin
are among the most popular models.
An elderly woman seen recently at a
reception wore a most becoming costume j
of gray and pink, which set off the beauty i
of her nearly white hair and gave the |
faintest shade of pink to her cheeks, j
which was a great deal prettier than any
rouge effect she might have tried. The j
skirt of her gown was of gray cloth, the
bodice of gray chiffon over gray silk, j
with a small yoke of lace and narrow j
piping of pink where the yoke and bodice j
joined. Over this she wore a long even- |
1 ?rl?K a I
Ing coat or gray uroauuviu ??rcu **in* ?.
soft pink silk.
WAISTS OF TWO COLORS
AND TWO MATERIALS
A RATHER odd effect is gained by the
style which calls for one color and
kind of material for one side of the waist,
while the other side ts of a material quite
different in both shade and texture, the
two sections running across the bodice
diagonally. If a woman had too little
cloth for her waist and fashioned it in
this way from necessity it would be a calamity.
but now that it is done with a
purpose, and that purpose to walk meekly
in the footsteps of Dame Fashion, it
nakes all the difference in the world. We
can feel quite at ease if we are blue on
>ne side and gray on the other. We are
n fashion if we have a beautiful blue
Bead garniture on the left of us and a
fray silk on the right of us. It will be a
clever ruse for the woman who is mak- I
ng over an old dress and Is short of rna:erlal.
Many of the newest gowns have
ileeves of two materials. In one beauti'ul
evening gown the sleeves of pink mestaline
were cut away in front, and
;hrough this open oval space was seen
;he embroidered net. On some gowns al nost
the entire upper part of the sleeve
was cut away and filled with a sort of
attice work of silk which was twisted in
cords, each interstice being joined with a
fold sequin.
