I;abric Gloves in tints caught from June's roses and others of June's delicate-hued tlowers. Pure Silk Gloves, the patri cians of the fabric family, are unusually handsome, especially those bearing the name of Kayser. Colors never so beautiful and varied as at present. Delicate straws shaded down to deep, warm, luscious orange they shaded the other way to the light, bright, ruddy gold of ihe sunset. Wonderful skill and care in dyeing ! Soft shades of modest modes, nutrias, mastic, reddish tans, golden tans, old ivory white, lucent pearls and pale azure are simply exquisite ; while the French Quaker grays are very neat. Price, uniformly 50c a pair. The colors of our Taffeta Gloves, at 25c and 50c per pair, are quite as attractive as in the pure silks. Black at 25c and 50c also. The word Taffeta really means pure silk, accord ing to Webster, but the manu facturers don't mind the dic tionary. Hence the Taffeta Gloves are silk-anddinen ; silk plated on the outside. Silk-and-linen, however, has a pe culiar virtue ; it is very service able as well as sightly, wearing even better than pure silk. Silk Gauntlet Gloves should have cuffs of medium width, and that excellent little hook or clasp, at the wrist, such as is a great convenience on the Gauntlet Gloves that we sell at 75c a pair, both in black, tafteta and colored silk. These Silk Gauntlets make a hand look very trim in outline, wholly free from a loose, care less effect. The colors are captivating. Have you a coat of mail ? You most likely need one at the ends of your fingers. The Kayser Silk Gloves have three coats of mail at the finger-tips ; protection against the assaults of hard wear. Three-ply thick. Proof against wearing out at the finger-ends first. A guar antee to this effect goes with every pair, entitling the pur chaser to another pair without cost, should the tips not ac- tually outwear the gloves. Price, 75 cents. Heavy and thick black silk Milanese Gloves, $1.00. Black Silk Mitts, 19c, all silk; and 25c, 37 i-2c, 50c. Chamois Gloves ; the swell article for seashore and outing wear. As the thermometer climbs the nineties, these gloves are delightfully cool. Both the white and natural color will wash acceptably. A dollar a pair. Suede Gloves are also agree able to wear in summer. Being soft and thin, they leave a de lightful sense of feeling when drawn off, and make the hands softer. Nothing fits anybody so well as their skin. Next to that, the Trefousse Suedes. The Trefousse shades vary from the tints of the sea, earth, sky and wood, to the delicate color dreams of the sea-shell. TREFOUSSE. Four-lluttou Suede $1 f0 Slx-Hutton Suede 1 (.
