known ns skunk fur which has Mlainid
to such dizzy heights of popularity as to
bo classed with the cxpennivo furs is now
rot only made up Into neckpieces and
I mpQNbut trims gowns to be worn In the
house There was a lime when such a
thing would have been declared quite im
r jj possible for many reasons
Imitation furs have always been
1 I ranked as impossible by the woman with
i i E refined taste and inexhaustible pocket
i Shook but today the cost of the imita
cion is satisfactory enough to those who
feel that because an article is cosily it
s necessarily most desirable Conse
quently the possessor of priceless sables
is quite willing to have her opera cloak
trimmed with some of the lately fash
ionable furs like fisher and to have a
muff aird neckpiece ofthe same
Made Without Interlining
There would seem tn be just as much
uncertainty over the size and shape of the
muffs as of the hats this year Absurdly
large and even grotesque are many the
apparent object in view being to give the
effect of reckless extravagance As a mat
ter of comfort and warmth the old fash
ion d small round muff was much better
than the flat wide open ones that arc made
with so little interlining
The body of the muff made separate
I from the fur is one of tho favorite fash
ions his winter Of large size but more
I often round rather than flat the muff it
self is of satin The fur is so arranged
ns to Bhow the markings of the skins to
hest advantage by leaving them flat al
most a rug indeed it is known ns the
rug muff The satin of which the muff
itself is made can Ivo black white or any
color desired and while it is not conspicu
ous it is quite evident The skins nn
not sewed together but left each intnct
and fastened to a flat lining of chiffon or
satin quite apart from the muff which
gives n much richer effect than when they
are sewed close together but both styles
arc fashionable The latter fashion how
over carried out on quite a different plan
from that of former seasons shows off
any beauty of natural markings or color
ing to great advantage
Apparently the end and aim of fashion
i H to give the ttppearnnce of fur being
used most lavishly the stoles and in
deed all neckpieces arc much wider and
longer than last
year and with the ex
aggeratedly large muff the equally cx
ggcratcdly largo scarf or stole and a
mt trimmed with a broad band of the
same fur a woman looks as though she
were completely clothed ill fur The wide
shawl collars on the cloth coats the big
muffs to match and again the same fur
in the band around the velvet turban or
the entire fur hat arc only other varia
ions of the same suheme It Is not so prac
tical to have the fur collar on the coat
attached but that detail is decided by j
the individual then the wide cuffs of
fur must not be forgotten for they add
still nnother touch giving even more tlit
effect of warmth and lavish expenditure
New Kinds of Fur I
Fisher skinner monfllon all pre com
larutivoly new names but ones that arc
ii Ircady well known to the fashionably
gowned Tho evening wraps nfford fine
opportunity to display these furs and the
wide band round the botlotn of the coal
or the medium width one that encircles
it completely and thu very long shawl col
Inr are all most popular Gray moufllon
on a dull blue brocade or heavy ribbed
Ottoman silk coat is extremely smart
while a palo yellow satin with chinchilla
is exceptionilly hen ntiful Chinchilla is
extremely fashionable this season and is
made up in all the new styles of muff and
stole The markings of this fur as well ns
its exquisite softness were never shown to
greater advantage than in this winters
fashions and it is not strange that wom
en feel tho outlay for a chinchilla
set Is worth even the price that must be
paid for It It is not a universally becom
ing fur und furthermore is Badly perish
able two details that endear it to the
hearts of those whom it graces The
skunk fur is extremely becoming and the
dark coloring and the length of the hair
make a good contrast with both light and
dark colors nnd materials
Fancy muffy of all kinds are most popu
lar this winter and it would seem as
though there was no end to the now
shapes Satin and satin ribbon velvet
and velvet ribbon and the heaviest of
chiffon nil nro combined with fur and
often there is less of the fur than of the
other materials
Flat without stuffing oblong in shape
and of goodly size these muffs aro most
decorative and add greatly tel any amart
costume but it should bo borne in minll
that they arc not appropriate with a plain
street costume With this the simple
style in furs is tarsmartcr and there arc i
plenty of smart lets in the bmpler style
UK well
One of the fads of this season is
the round stuffed mutt of large size quite
on tho linos of the old fashioned ones anti
there aro signs and indications that it will
not be long before the small round fur
muff of olden time will again be in style
not this inter though The rouud muff
that are fashionable this winter arc most
clumsy and uhwllill and have nothing
to recommend them save that they are a
new fashion It Acorns strange to speak o 11
a muff as becoming but that onu of the
points in favor of clue Hat styles and the
reason for their never waning popularity
lor he benefit of thoxe forced lo be econ
omical bo it realized this wiutr that the
IiItIl1lIot small sized muffs not j i
hopelessly and conspicuously out of date f
but it is quite possible especially if tho
fur is of good quality
Fashion Cetails That Every Woman Should Know I
BnL beautiful nre the fur coal and
VI5RY costumes of which almost all
I women who luy claim to n place iu I
fashions van possess at least omv They

with trimmings of tho longer furs Due
most charming suit was made with a
rather close lit big skirt of broadtail

only at the waist line It was tnnuniul
I with a rolling collar and turned hack
fronts of skunk The long sleeves were
also bordered with skunk A broadtail
turban with n black aigrette a skunk
muff and n black satin blouse with n
cream lace chemisette tuid collar com
pleted this costume
Another most charming costume ofj
broadtail was trimmed with chinchilla
The costume consisted of a black satin
frock with a very deep band of broad
tail forming tho lower half of the skirt
I which wits bordered at the lower edge
with a band of chinchilla With thin
was worn a ICussian blouse coat which
reached down to the broadtail on the
