Nov. rlt-.-The first L premonitory aignsj or. approaching winter mako the aubjett of furs a seasonabe topic. The" fashionable shapes on and around Fifth Avenue exhibit most exquisite selections of handsome Imported mouels of which furs foim a component part. Of fur coats there is a bewildering variety and with a few exceptions y.r may be called conservative n4 prtKtica Fur garments, made of every' imag inable kind of fur, are shown In great profusion and tho price de manded for some of these garments or garniture, are almost Incredibly high. . V - ' The coats In general follow lines much lllto these with which wor.in became familiar last winter, though the cut of the coat naturally de pends to some extent upon the use to which It Is to be put. The for motor coat shows, width enough in its skirt to allow a eomfortable sit ting posture of the wearer without any falling away of the coat irom over the knees, but the dressy fur coat la very likely to nairow slight ly toward the bottom instead oi ldening, and its fronts are ire- quently cut away la'more or tea. nronounced- fashion.. - The fastening of this, dressy long coat is still1 placed low oa the left side most frequently, and some sort of Dlcturesaue collar 18 the rule, but there are many exceptions to ft Extravagance In fura has grown bv leapa and bounds within the last fifteen years and each year the price demanded for really fine furs sot higher. The reason'ls easily found in the araduat exterm'nation of fur- henrtns- animals - throughout the world. ' Seal has not the' prestige It en loved last winter, . yet there are many handsome long coats of French seal, the genuine seal being now too costly, to be worn except by the extravagant few. Caracul is still a 'favorite among 'the less ex pensive coat fur. and moleskin is In high favor, and being as pliable as velvet or plush, affords the fur rlers opportunity for the exhibition of skilful workmanship, Combination of furs is a salient feature ot. the season's modea In both the email fura and the coats and It is rather exceptional to find a handsome coat all in one kind of fur. certain ermine evening coats and the rare sable coats, to whose beauty no other fur could" add. be ing the most noteworthy exceptions. Moleskin combine'! with, seal. with ermine, with the dyed fox of soft taupe tone, with skunk, with white fox. Black caracul is reliev ed by any and all o the dark long haired furs, by opossum, chinchilla snd ermine. Sesl finds a lovely, cor. trast in ermine, but is trimmed with the long haired furs too. Even the ermine coat sometimes has a huge collar of black fox or white fox, though it is most effective when us ed alone. Chinchilla is becoming rarer ev ery year and before long will prob ably be beyond the means of any b"t the very rich. Fine sables, silver fox, seal, ermine, breitschwan. and a. they become rarer. Each year oi her fura are all Increasing in price the makers of fashion take up some one of the less expensive furs snd make it a fad in order that the av erage woman may find In the mod ishnees of a far she can buy some compensation for the fact that the best of the furs are bcyor.l her means. The most beautiful coats seen so fsr this winter are the evening coats of ermine and of these the Impor ters have brought over some won derful examples. As a rule they are in the all white ermine with the black and white us 3d only as trim ming, chiefly in fringe arrangement. The fur is supple snd light to a sur prising degree and is often intricate ly handled. Magnificent laces. Ot ten metallic, are used upon some of the ermine evening costs, and dar ing things are done with black vet vet In connection with ermine. Side by side with the long coat fastening low st the aide are coats with collars on Directorie line, and otherwise adjusted high about the throat, and some model, cosey tad comfortable for very cold days open on the left side In Russian fashion, rise to the base of the throat and on the left shoulder extend Into long scarfs which may be drawn around the throat in stole faihion. For all-round comfort and utility the long separate roat I. stilt much la favor in Perls. The well-dressed Partsienne alway number at least cue long roat in her outfit and use It for traveling by boat, train or mo tor. There are many new touches which the great designers of fash len have added to the new fall and winter model. for Inst.rire, the monk's hood, which Is the long cir cular or square collar converted to a pointed and tasseted hood at the bark.

Large le vers are the features, and the port ed or round shaped collars at. the back promise to decorate successful ly the favorite garment.
