A very charming model has been de veloped by Lewis, of London and Paris, a toque made of the breast feathers of the white paradise, with dishing quill-like ornaments of the paradise I pli'mes, embodying all the chl? and smartness that mark the creations ofl this designer. The same design h.xs been Imported to America developed In 1 white hackle in the toque and white, coque In the trimmings.

American designing always has and always will be su preme for it takes into con sideration the desires of the American woman. The "freakish" models which have predominated for sev eral years past have simply been the result of an ex hausted effort to produce originality on the part of for eign designers, instead of which their frenzy has wrought only extremes. The present war in Europe has precluded the importation of Pa risian styles and arlorded an opportunity for American designing to come into its own. We have obtained, at a great expense, the services of one of the leading New York designers and have instructed him to give our cus tomers the very smartest styles that he can create. The gorgeous showing of Fall Millinery now on display at our salons illustrates the unusual success of our designers in creating won derful and chic designs. We believe it to be superior to anything ever neiore snown in wasningion and we are pleased to invite ihe ladies ot the Nation's Cap ital to come in and inspect and criticise freely our judgment. r-'o..
