History lloHnt.s In New Autumn

erns call the enrly history of Eu
rope, much that was lovely was
done With peltry. And further bark,
when artlflclsl heat was not known,
when men and women lived In damp
huts or palaces, when life was crude
and raw und self-sacrificing In a
way that we may never know, even
under the exigencies of a great war,
peltry wns tho true moans of cover
ing the body anil making one's self
not only btautirul, but comfortable.

dressmakers are taking up fur so
early In tho. season and Intend
to emphasize It for next au

You remember the outside blouse,
someume fnshloned as a straight
rurirass, which was brought on the
fashion tnnrket two year ago.' A
woman who asked for one nt a

told that that line of fashion was en
tirely cloci out. Yet the woman
knew that It was Just coming In
