THE SMARTEST FASHIONS OF WELL DRESSED FOLK THE FIRST CHILLY DAY DEAK MADGE: !Now that autumn is really upon us, I have taken again to my old habit of walking, in the park, breathing in the beautifully sharp air and, incidentally, getting ideas on my winter clothing. . - I have been at it all afternoon, and have returned only to write to my beloved sister. I have at least three perfectly good ideas which I do not want myself, and which I will therefore most generously bestow upon you. The first was a maiden I encountered on my journey: a tall brunette dressed in a suit of plum-colored broadclpth/frwhose only trimming was appliqued squares of gray and gilt embroidery one of them at the very bottom of her skirt— in an oddlmt pretty effect. The coat was short, the sleeves rather on the Louis Quinze order, with little lace ruffles. Her hat was distinctive, too: a high turban shape in plum-colored velvet; with a rowcf white silk flowers, above which rose another row of puffed purple silk tulips. Just like an eld-fashioned^flower garden* but in reality very modish indeed. For she was the acme of fashion, even to her purple cordelier bag, with its buttoned flap. Idea Xo. 2 was walking with her— if, you, understand what I meant She was in the new "velour glace"— a velvet -which i 3 changeable, like silk. This was a mouse color, that reflected light blue fn the light. It was a plainly cut suit, stitched in panel effect and trimmed with rows of strapped metal; buttons." With it went one of the fashionable scarfs of black satin- and natural-color marabou and a black-and-gold lace.hat: a picture shape with; two gold-speckled white willow plumes falling in the approved "foun tain" style. - - • ~- r ' Finally, my third idea : a vivacious little \ creature walking with a most correct and awesome looking. man. .She was in broad cloth also: a smart suit with a draped apron^kirtand a coat whose distinguishing feature was. a deep double sailor collar.. With it went a dashing toque of wistaria silk beaver with^afolded cockade of silver tissue. - Stunning, wasn't it?'- If you see anything "in the fashion line" -I could use, write me of it. Your-loving sister, ELEANOR.
