Special Chicago Letter.
There is one thing that will help to
reconcile the woman of to-day to the
fall and winter fashions, and that is the
materials of which the costumes are
made. These fabrics are beautiful in
the extreme, and all the most fashion
able ones show the bouclo effect.
Rough surfaced woolens are seen on
every side. One of the most novel ef
fects among the latest importations is a
wool 6tuff resembling Turkish towel-

inr with slender smooth woven lines of
silk or velvet running1, through it.
These goods are especially handsome
in the new shade called damson
striped with bright green and dull
violet, or else in golden-brown wool
with tho velvet lines in dark brown,
showing a gleam of yellow in the
weaving. Another novelty is the
mohair woolens, which, by the way,
arc only made in England. They are
woven with a border along tho selvage
to be used as a waist garniture, which
is beautifully wrought in palm pattern,
rich Persian effects and in velvet ap
plication. This material comes in all
the newest shades and also in black.
In the latter the fancy for the old, yet
still popular, black and white combina
tion is prettily brought out in the
border which lias its dainty white
ground lightly covered with a lace-like
pattern doue in black velvet applique.
The cheviots, whose popularity is
perennial, are seeu in a loose and some
what coarser weave than those we have
been accustomed to see in former sea
sons. The colors most sought after in
this material are Russian green, Medit
erranean blue and plum color. Gayly
colored plaids will bo much in evidence
as the season advances. Particularly
is this true of the rich plaid velvets
which will bo very much used for
slsevcs and collars on dark colored
bodices.
Tho new crepons are the handsomest
yet brought out. They can scarcely
be classed with the wool goods, as their
surface is entirely of silk thrown upon
a background of wool, and for this
reason they will be used for more
dressy gowns than the all-wool and
mohair fabrics.
Something entirely new are damask
crepons, showing large silken ilowers
mounted in black on a ground of light
tan damson or deep-sea blue. This
charming design is also seen on back
grounds of plum color, golden brown,
dull red and Russian green, and, being
very much up to date, is really the
correct thing to buy if one elects to
wear crepon.
In all the dress goods shown at pres
ent the bright rich colors of autumn

predominate, but Parisian costumers
say much black will bo worn later on.
Its somberness will, however, be great
ly relieved by many spangles and
much fine jet. Brussels net, complete
ly covered with cut jet, will glitter
and gleam on handsome black silk and
satin gowns, but owing to its exceed
ingly high price will never become at
all common.
Sleeves are alwaysan interesting
sub
ject to women, and particularly at the
present time when lateimported models
show the rather small, close-fitting
sleeve to be the correct one to wear.
There area goodly number of women,
however, who will most emphatically
refuse to submit to the change. They
will, for a time at least, cling to the
big puff, but it will be a drooping
affair made entirely without stiffen
ing. All the fashionable sleeves droop
well off the shoulder and many of
them fit' the arm closely for a few
inches below the shoulder and then ex
pand into a puff. This is the latest
sleeve for evening wear, and is shown
to good advantage in tho picture.
The very latest shirt, known as the
terpentine, is cut circular, hangs in
graceful box plait effoot and measures
anywhere from five to ten yards at the
hem. There is not the least suggestion
of stiffening used iu tli3 lining and
compared to those worn in past seasons
the fiew &kirt presents a rather limp
*.
A tailor-made suit slv
immediate attention, for~K
popular gown- at tho present n.
It is not the severely plain tailor-n.,
gown of yester-year but, on the con
trary, is quite dressy, not to say elab
orate, with broad revers and vest of
contrasting cloth and trimmings of
narrow fur, not to mention the rich
braiding in gold and silver in
which some tailors excel. Tweeds,
cheviots and boucle cloths are
used for these gowns, but not
to tho exclusion of the smooth
lady's cloth and fine meltons. Within
the week I have seen two exquisite
gowns made of tho last mentioned
cloth, which bore the indelible stamp
of a first-class tailor. One in dark blue
cloth, very light in weight, was
trimmed with straps of white cloth
fastened with tiny gold buttons. The
sleeves, which had several tucks across
the top, were strapped down from
the shoulder and buttoned with eight
of the litt.le golden buttons. The
short jacket was loose in front and
fastened with a fly, and a vest of white
cloth with an immense choker collar
was worn beneath it. Both the jacket
and skirt were lined with blue and
white taffeta sillc in a small checked
pattern. The other costume, a fihe
melton, in a rich dark shade of green,
showed a decided novelty in the jacket,
the tight-fitting fronts being cut in
one piece with the sleeves in such a
manner that the sleeves' set per
fectly flat on the top, giving to the
entire costume an air of distinction
whi«h loudly proclaimed its French or-
Rin.
The growing fancy for metal effects
is seen on many of the handsomest gar
ments turned out by well-known
houses. The chic silk bodice lias not
escapcd its allurements, for of
the very prettiest ones I have seen late
ly show a braiding of gold aud silver
gleaming 'neath trimmings of fine lace,
the whole being most elegant and
charming to a degree.
Jackets and capes vie with each other
in popular favor, and yet each has its

separate and distinct uses. When we
speak of the coat costume, we always
think of the stylish, well-fitting jacket,
while the cape finds favor for "dress
up" occasions, as well as the more com
mon everyday wear. In all the newer
jackets I notice there is an effort to do

short, fallfng^onjji5^ few incfie VVlTl"
the waist and having but few'
though it is close fitting. With one"or
two exceptions the fronts are all loose,
being sometimes cut a trifle longer than
the back. These jackets or small coats,
as som'e tailors call them, strike tho
keynote, as it were, of the fashions to
be worn throughout the season, and as
they are so generally becoming, I see
no reason why they should r,ot go
through several seasons, with perhaps
few modifications.
It is too early to speak with any de
gree of certainty of the styles of fur
garments, especially jackets, for the
coming winter. A very radu'iil change
in sleeves is predicted, but as yet noth
ing is positively known.
Capes this fall are cut very short and
very full. This is particularly true of
the velvet and silk plush capes, some
having such full godets as to form
waves around the corsage. Tho edges
of these capes are buttonholed and
embroidered with jet and are invari
ably lined with cream-tintcd or pale
colored satin or silk. A very pretty
model in a moire silk had the first cape
of black, the second white and the top
one of black, all tho edges being fin
ished by full ruches of lace, while
about the shoulders of the upper cape
was a handsome jet galloon trimming.
Another late model is given in the
picture. It is made of rich black
miroir velvet and lined throughout
with palo yellow brocaded satin. Each
godet is outlined by broad bands of jet
passementerie, while round the neck
and lower edge is an exceedingly
handsome trimming of ostrich feathers,
which trimming, I might mention in
passing, is destined to play an im
portant part this winter on gowns as
well as outer garments.
In the matter of mp.'inery for the
coming winter ther« is nothing defi
nite at the present moment. There
are "feelers'' being put forth in many
directions, but nothing has been de
cided upon. The test of time, which
means in this particular casf, a short
delay, will solve the problem, and in
selecting a winter hat it is better "to
make haste slowly" than to buy in
haste and repent at leisure.

George C. Moore,
troit, Minn., is the owner Oi
dog, a pointer, that is somethi&<*
wonder iu its way, says the Cincini
Enquirer. Don, as tho dog is callei
a brother of a dog owned by E
Thompson, of Duluth, which animai
cently distinguished itself bj' findin
pocketboolt lost in the street by
master, and remaining by it all ni{
in spite of the fact that he had to
a bulldog in order to do so.
Both dogs were, 'when puppies, owned!
by a clergyman, and many people think
it was their early training which makes
them so sagacious. Certain it is that
they know right from wrong, and their
doings area continual
source of wonder
to their masters and their frier
Don's latest notion is that he willc
hunt on Sunday, and no amount of
suasion can get him to go into the fi.
with his owner if the latter carries
gun. If no gun is in sight Don gc
along as nicely as you please, but tl
moment that a shot is fired anywhei
in the neighborhood he is off for hom
as fast as ho can go, and on his master',
return he greets him with a reproach
ful look, as though to protest against
having been imposed upon in any such
way.
Last Sunday an attempt was made to
make Don hunt. The whole thing si la
ply amounted to an attempt, howyr*
for hunt Don would not, althoul
was known that there were a numV.
of prairio chickens in tho field. Mr.
Moore was pulling tho dog along, hav
ing a rope around his neck, and the
way the dog hung back was remark
able. He manifested his displeasure in
every way possible, except by biting,.!
and even when a chicken got up al
most from under his feet, he never paid
the slightest attention to it, not even
looking at the bird, whose wings
brushed his nose.
Iu order to see if the dog really had
objections to hunting on Sunday, he
was taken into the same field early
Monday morning by the same people.
Don needed no urging this time, and
never did a dog hunt so well. lie
seemed anxious to show how well he
could work, and not once did he flush aw
bird or break his point. It was a pleas

LAKES DRYING UP.
Nothing But a Heavy Fnll ot Snow tha

which a few years ago were tho largest
in South Dakota, will become dry, nota
bly among which is Lake Kampeska,!
heretofore a fine body of water near

Who never, nevei plays
She's moat scdato und prim, and has
Such quaint old-fashioned ways

She's such a qulot little maid,
And her age lu flfty-al*.
