.?ES ARE AMONG THE MOST
POPULAR OF THIS SEASON'S
kWRAPS. SPORTS COATS
ARE ALSO VERY FASH
?&<??? ABLE.
5PARD SKIN COATS HAVE A
THREE-WEEKISH EFFECT,
SAYS WRITER.
" By Margaret Mason.
'mantle Has descended oil the
iern maid, they say;
But just what Bore of mantlo i'.o
hey mean?
bnly mantle poor Eve knew was
when a rosy blsh
dj mantled all her snowy brow
Eyerie.
f coat she had. no doubt, was
t>a~ coat of .tan.
.only wrap .when .she .was
appcd in thought.
_J}odern maid don't give a rap
fa'rany wrap like that
"f tliey sport every cloak that can
S.bouglit. i
key wouldn't even give a lig for
jb's ; bareskln outfit?
Selected sealskins they prefer, I've
noted.
They have a different wrap and cloak
for everything they do.
Why oven when .thy're ill tlielr
tongues are coated.
Keeping up with the fashions means
adapting a bit of brogue "capcing"
up with them this season. Such a
bewildering array of capos and wraps
and mantles and loose and coatcus
and Jackets and flaring cloaks are of
fered for each and every occasion.
The sumptuous evening wraps of
brilliantly tinted velvets, fur-collared,
miffed and edged, are the same won
derful creations as shown earlier in
the season. The military capes and
U&ritig Cossack cloaks, the braital
end frogged .military .Jackets have'
tlicir stanch adherents still. It is of
the new sports conts, however, do
'.ightfully .appropriate for .golf, for
motoring, for skating, for hiking or
Just plain knock-about wear that tie
ccrlptlons are now in good order.
Tliero Is a great run on corduroy
for soprt coats and they are shown
in all the brilliant colorings as well
as in the more conservative tones ot
"tete do negre" Russian green, sand,
putty, mustard and corbeau blue. A
particularly stunning model in this
material is almost ankle length with
a flaring bell-sliaped back and a belt
consisting of two stitched straps
ocross it. The collar is the new mil
itary effect and buttons up tightly
about the throat. Short box coat.3
buttoned up high around the nccK
and widely belted come in the cor
duroy as well as in the huge horse
blanket, plaid effect Just .like big!
brother's mackinaw. These shorter
coats are. of course, more desirablo
foi skating and golf, but going them
one better for those sports are the,
lovely, light-weight, but fleecily warm I
belted sweaters of angora wool in j
softest pnstel tints of old rose, old I
blue, old gold, sage green and grey j
With jabunty caps to match, what
skittish skater or girlish golfer could ,
ask for more perfect apparel.
As usual, clever woman has helped !
herself to the best of raasctilino gam'
foi her own needs. She has taken
his now picadiily raglan of Scotch J
mixture or English tweed and lifted j
it bodily to her own fair shoulders j
They're to do. for a storm coat, a
motor coat, a hiking coat or travel
| coat of much and varied service.
A novel raincoat o2 transparent
rubberized crepe do chine is the lat
est chic covering to keep milady from
1Tie wrathful elements. They come
in shimmering and shinning greens
and yellows and are as durable as
they appear delicate. Perky .little
| hats to match make up a moisture
rroof outfit guaranteed to keep their
| lucky wearers as dry as the State of
| Kansas. You are sure to be spotted
aj ultra smart if you are wearing a
loopardskin coat this winter. There
^eems to he something particularly
fitting about this feline fur that adapt:?
itself to most types of femininity.
(Certainly not, Geraldlne, no catty
insinuations .are .meant). .Ther's
something facinatinglv barbaric and
elemental about it that makes it es>
jpocially alluring on a sinuous bru
nette with glowing olive skin and scar
let Hps and dusky eyes.
Thus coated, lovely women has it
! on tho leopard whoso skin she is
sporting in as much as she can change
her spots with impunity by simply
shedding his hide.
Leopard skin coats collared and cuf
fed in beaver or seal skin arc very
striking, but even simply self-trim
med they have a tliroeweekish effect
that out far Glyns Eleanor's old tig
er skin.
FESTOONS OF JET.
Jet is again in favor and on some
of the most striking1 gowns imported
tills autumn ontire overskirts were
adorned with jet, applied in con
ventional design on a foundation of
net or chiffon or drapped in long fes
toons that gave a decidedly oriental
eflect on tho costume.
Large .conventional .ornaments of
jot are in demand, but those, like the
spangles, aro much lighter than their
appearancoB would indicate. Jot Is
used to decorate many of tho grace
ful Watteau trains and draperies m
vogue for ovening gowns, says tho
New York Times, and jot tassels and
bands of jet trimming contribute to
the beauty and charm of the more
fetching evoning wraps.

; Some Stage Illusions and Disillusions.
I Who is there in all this broad land
j who has never felt the thrill that tho
i theater imparts, with its softened
lights, its cushioned chairs and the
hush of expectancy in the air? Who
Is there who never experienced in the
days of their 'teens a desire to he part
of it all ? Well, it is lucky for us that
our stern parents held us in check,
for, according 10 Miss Dixie CIrard,
of "The uaker Girl" Company, which
comes to tho Grarfd Friday, December
18, it is a thankless job, aud the il
lusions of the stage are only equa.
to the disillusions that overtake the
beginner the moment she enters the
hack door. Miss Girard says: "Fond
mothers aro apt to look upon the
stage as the gateway to perdition with
Satan standing guard, but it is not
such a thing, it is just a rough path
to the hardest kind of work. On the
eide of the footlights, it is pleasant
enough, for there the illusion is com
plete, and on cold nights the audience
Is kept warm and on warm nights the
electric fans are going. But what of
the actors? Why, on cold nights, they
are cold,.of course, and on hot nights
?well, the preachers don't need to
tell us much what thoso in the nether
regions suffer from the heat. Acting
is not only an art. it is a business, and
one where steady employment is out
of the question, and where the supply
fttr exceeds the demand. And yet,
there is a fascination about the work
which makes it impossible for us to
break away from it once wo have be
come initiated and inured to the hard
ships and hard work. Besides there is
always the Idea with us that a big
career is waiting just around tho cor
ner. ou cannot rob the most insignifi
cant actor of tiic belief that ho is go
ing to make a hit some day if ho
sticks, and wo all stick, not because
the life i spleasant or has one pleas
ant feature, but because of that ca
reer bug which has hit us on tho
head."

NEW YOUK, Dec. 16.?Jim Coffey
shaded Gunboat Smith in a flurry of
wind swings tit Madison Square Gar
den tonight. It was the usual brand
of white hope lighting, and Referee
Uoche was tho most prominent work
er of the ovoning, tearing the mas
sive giants apart from death clutches.
Smith landetl the harder blows, Cof
fey the most. It was at iu-flghting
that the Dublin boy excelled, and on
this he deserved the award. Every
round was tho same. Plenty of wild
and uncanny swings that nover re
sulted in anything more than an ein
brncement which cost the referee all
his strength to break.

of the 10.*' Smith worked at top speed
