EL PASO HERALD trvms- mvlt ipasn II "3viV;i I ssss 102X3 all By Joan Greenshields I HE Ideal ptttection in cold "printer "weather, dating from the days when clothes were first recognized as a neces sity, is of fur, and because the women of today have realized the health value of time spent in the open air the question of fashions in fur has become, a very important one. This season the skins used are of many kinds, and in such a wide range as to suit the exactions of every figure and every purse. The combination of two (or in some cases three) kinds of fur in one garment is a very popu lar mode, and a very practical one, particularly in coats and. wraps. The short haired flat furs which one must necessarily use for a coat are not be coming to all faces, and, when this is so, collar, cuffs and trimming of a soft fluffy variety may be added with charming -effect and satisfaction in the knowledge that one is quite in the fashion. The Parisian fad of combin ing fur with chiffon and lace is a very pretty one, and for evening or early winter wear it is much used. The chif fon figures chiefly in scarfs or under sleeves and vests in short coats. In the latter the fur part resembles a close fitting stole, and the chiffon softly frilled or plaited transforms it into a coat. Seal, sable, mink, lynx, fox and black marten are the favorite furs, while for smart occasions broadtail and ermine are essential. Chinchilla has dropped in favor for the time being, its place having been usurped by the ef fective Australian opossum. Sable has always been considered a very extrava gant fur and beyond the reach of the average pocketbook. "With the present styles, however, where the skins lend themselves readily without being cut at all to muff, stole or coat, it would seem to be one of the most practical of furs. Skunk, which has never at tained in America the popularity which it has gained in Paris, is in demand for narrow band trimmings, and muffs of this graceful fur deftly combined with soft satin, are much affected by the younger set Muffs are still large and are either pillow or barrel shaped, the lining being shirred to fit the wrist closely. Both short and long stoles are worn. Where the former is de sired, two whole skins are used with both heads and tails showing. The lining is a very soft one, so that the wrap lies flat on the shoulders, giv ing the desired protection to the back and chest without giving the appear ance of short neck. In the long stoles the back part is made to coyer the shoulders well in either square or pointed effect, while the front fastens close at the throat and falls to the knees, increasing the long line in front. Fur coats are to be much worn in length from 36 to 52 inches, the short er ones, of course, being more practi cal for walking. They are all semi- fitting in the back and front, and the rather small sleeves are invariably finished with a cuff. Sometimes this cuff is made of a different fur, long haired; but where this is not specially desired, the sleeve is made, very long and rolled back. "When, necessary to take the place of a muff, this can be pulled down over the hands. Long shawl collars and huge revers are equally popular. A new motor coat of seal showing both the flat revers of seal being made large enough to show beyond the narrower collar of marten, with which this smart model was trimmed. Yery large, fancy but tons of passementerie, chenille or silk cord are used for fastening or to cover the fastening. wmmm WmwMWk'M The M illinery Store That Keeps Prices Down Again this season we are going to live up to our reputation for giving the very highest grade millinery at the closest possible prices.

SEE OUR WINDOW DISPLAY The Millinery ARNOLD STRELITZ, Prop. 110 MESA AVE. SEE OUR WINDOW DISPLAY rn By Jane Brayton I DIE was when the "little girl who had a little curl, that hung in the middle of her forehead," was an object of envy to every straight-haired mother's daughter of us. But now if the poor soul is adorned with only the curls that grew on her little top-knot we pass her by with pity and hie us to a bargain counter where we may buy yards and yards of ringlets. It is the day of the curl, and nature never planted enough curls on anybody's head, except per haps on Medusa's, to meet the require ments of the present fashions. The general contour of the most fa vored coiffures is decidedly Grecian, but with such fluffy additions as to make the classic mode becoming to al most any face. About the face the hair is dressed very softly and nat urally, either parted or with a sort of curled bang effect. About the large Greek knot at the back of the head is placed a wide braid caught here (and there with the fashionable shell pins, if desired, and from beneath this three to five curls hang upon the neck. For evening, when a band of metal ribbon is brought around the head, finished perhaps with a rosette or ca- bochon, the effect is most attractive. The Gainsborough style requires forty-'leven curls. A soft twist of hair encircles the head, after the manner of the turban braid. The crown of the head is then filled in with a mass of loose curls, with several of them escap ing from under the twist in the back to lie on the nape of the neck. For the young face, to which the ringlets hanging in front of the ears cannot impart an old-maidish look, what is called the Recamier mode Is very win some. The hair is nsually parted and allowed to fall in apparently care less curls over the ears. A tumble of curls is arranged at the top of the head and a narrow band of velvet or ribbon holds them in place. One of the simpler effects Is pro duced by covering the bee-hive frame a wire, hair-covered frame, having " hole in the center of it, that fits over the head like a cap with, a wide thick braid pulled out so that the sides of it completely cover the frame. About this is twisted a soft coil which, may be held by big pins or threaded, with gauze or satin ribbons for dressy oc casions. The old-time waterfall style Has been revived, with slight changes. The front hair is dressed, becomingly, and the back hair is drawn to the crown of the head to fall in puffs and curls within the encircling twist of hair. The pompadour lias departed. The mattresses with. -which we were wont to upholster our forehead we now ap ply to the hack of our heads, but the hair about the face must have a soft, fluffy, careless appearance. In spite of the tendency to very massive effects in present hairdressing, the trend is toward greater simplicity in arrange ment, with the preference for the Greek angle or for the high, dressing ci the ton of the head. r THE HVT SHOP 112 TEXAS ST.
