To walk through the different sections, to inspect the different floors is like having a parade of fashions pass in review before you, and the problems that now interest nearly every woman in America what is the size of the hat The style of the sleeve? The fullness and length of the skirt? The newest thing in gloves, hosiery, neckwear, trimmings, etc., are solved. You will want first choice, and you who are going to get the best styles had best come now now when styles, varieties, assortments are so rich and full, and, withal, priced so pleasingly. Beautiful HaAs for Ajtvimn. A painter's brush and an artist's skill could not portray all the beauties of these first new creations for fall and winter wear. Cold type utterly fails to describe their shapes, their peculiarly lovely harmonies, worked out in velvets, satins, ribbons, leath ers, wings and flowers. Every little piece of trimming helps out the artistic color idea and the elegant style. We shall simply say that the splendid records of our past have been surpassed, and our collection of Suit and Dress Hats at 5 to $10 is difficult to duplicate elsewhere at $7 to $12. Women's Suits, Skirts, Waists. This store is a mecca for them. We have sold more so far this month than in any previous corresponding period of tirne. There are reasons for this. The correctness of the styles, the variety to choose from, the quality of suits have much to do with it, we are sure. Exclusiveness and the fact that every suit that requires al teration is finished as though molded to its owner, combined with prices that are moderate, are pushing our sales ahead of all previous seasons.

Should War Be Declared Efforts of the Powers Will Be Directed to Limiting Hostilities to Bulgaria and Turkey International Conferene to Revise Treaty of Berlin. Paris, Oct. G. France has essayed the role of mediator with the object cf preventing war between Turkey and Bulgaria, and as a result of For eign Minister -firhon's series of cou ferences with the representatives ol the powers, including M. Jswolsky, the Russian foreign minister, Naoum Pacha, the Turkish ambassador to France, the Austro-Hungarian, the British, the American and the Italian ambassadors and of active exchanges which have been going on between the various cabinets, it was announced last night that France, Great Britain, Russia and possibly Italy were pre pared to act In unison to preserve peace and to call a conference of the signatories of the Berlin treaty to deal diplomat Icily with the situation that nas arisen between Turkey and Bulgaria and to harmonize conflicting Interests so that fresh complications may be avoided. Recognition of Bulgaria Conceded. Already certain tentative proposi tions as a basis for a conference have been forwarded to Constantinople, and If the porte's assent can be secured it la argued as certain that peace will be maintained. The nature of these propositions has not been disclosed, but It Is understood that they Involve the recognition of Bulgaria's Inde pendence as a "fait accompli." The danger of war Is believed to He In pieclpltate action at Constan tinople. Forced by the "Young Turks" pnrty. which may fear a blow at Its prestige If It acquiesces In the loss of Bulgaria, and by the military pnrty, which wants to restore the old order of things, It Is feared that Tur key, although Ill-prepared, both from a financial and military standpoint, may proclaim war. Should this be the case, the efforts of the powers will then be dire, ted to limiting the war to Bulgaria and Turkey. According to information received here. Bulgaria would welcome war, as the Bulgarians are convinced that their army could march straight to Constantinople before the Turkish forces could be mobllzed. The French government's communique says: "It Is certain that France, Russia, Great Britain and Italy will do their utmost to maintain peace In the East, but It seems difllcult as the present moment to judge what means will beRt attain this end. All depends upon what will happen at Constantin ople, and events that will now rapidly ensue might very shortly place the powers In the presence of a 'fait ac compli' and completely modify the aspect of affairs. Revision of Treaty of Berlin. "The Idea of an International con ference charged with the duty of de ciding upon a revision of the treaty of Berlin would seem to be put forward with a certain persistence In political circles. However, the disposition of Turkey In that respect must be first ascertained. If Turkey Is favorably Inclined to this It Is believed that the powers can easily reach an agreement on the principle of a conference, the Initiative for which France, Great Britain and Russia will take. But these are onlv hypotheses, which for the present must he regarded with re serve." The view Is now hold here that there has been a double move on the part of Bulgaria and Austria-Hungary, these two countries acting together, and that Germany and Italy were ad vised of It In advance. Russia also received an Intimation of the plan, but Mr. Iswolsky asserts that he was not let fully Into the secret, and In some respects was misled. A KEROSENE LAMP EXPLODED, Mrs. Mary Cummings and Two Grandchildren Burned to Death, Yonkers, X. Y., Oct. 6.
