It was de veloped, as ortgluully shown. In white and navy satin, with embroidery In a dull, rich red.

This nmy possibly be a forerunner of what nill will show In the line-up of clothes. If the statement of recent date from Paris that straight lines will be the thing for fall may be taken as correct. The gown shown may be made a slipover, If desired ; but it would be easier to fashion and more easily put on If fastened In the center back, and sLr* .
