Russian Influence Is Shown In the Furs;

said Myrtle Contents, or the White
House, in discussing women's 'wear
ing appaler for the season of 1913 and
"The Russian influence on the cos
tumes of this season is felt in the
fur trimmings, whieh arc demanded
on almost every costume, whether It
be street suit, reception gown or full
evening costume. The fur wraps and
long coats are exceedingly rich and
luxurious. All are trimmed with
huge collars and cuffs of some other
fur In contrasting color They are
distinctive in shape for their grace
ful, loose, ba&gy backs, the long
dropped shoulder and the draped man
darin sleeve.
The STerrest Fur.
"Fitch fur is the very newest or
furs, and is tremendously popular.
both for wraps and trimming. Heal
Hudson seal coats with Fitch fur or
baby lamb trimmings will be much
worn. In real fur coats a womn can
spend from ?,58e down. Civet cat fur
coats with skunk fur collars, are
Quito the thing. The imitation fur
cloth fabrics are lined with contrasting
fur fabrics. As an interesting model
we hear of baby lamb with ermine
lining. Fedeiaas and Ural cloth and
real camel's hair are popular. For
very nice coats and suits, the new
waffle cloth Is much used. It Is a ma
terial exactly resembling its name,
that comes in both solid and mixed
VelTCts are Foiilar.
"Velvets are being shown very ev
tenslvely In three-piece suits, besides
separate wraps. Tinseled matelasse
with collar? and trimmings of cut
chiffon velvet in cubist shades are pop
ular models.
"Keturning to the subject of furs
for fur sets, the very long, flat stoles,
and long flat pillow muffs will be
worn, the stoles and fur wraps fasten
ing at the side and back. The lin
ings of all these are most elaborate,
chifon draped over stain being much
Women Wear "Vemtx Sow,
For the business woman the
strictly plain tailored suit.' always m
good taste, is shown, with the skirts
Inclined to the peg top model. For
very nobby tailored suits, the vestee,
of fancy colored materials, or tapes
try effect is used. The Suffraget in
fluence is felt in the newest accessory
for the tailored suit, the waistcoat.
This is fashioned exactly like a man's
waistcoat or vest, and is worn -over
the tailored waist with or without the
outer jacket. Some are quite elabo
rately embroidered and others come
severely plain.
Afternoon Dresses not Mannish.
"Afternoon and reception gowns
are exceedingly beautiful, the skirt is
very much draped, the drape being a
little different from last year, coming
more to the side, with the drape a lit
tle higher, bringing more fullness
about the hips, tighter "at the ankle,
and with a very short slit, to allow
the wearer to walk. Just as the tail
ored suits have the mannish effects,
the afternoon costumes are the epi
tome of things feminine. Soft rich
silky materials, with loose draped and
clinging effects are the present mode.
Waistline Li High.
"In the costumes, the waist line av
erages high, though from the draped
effect there is no Visible waist line
at all. The upper part of the gar
ment yoke, sleeves and part of the
bodice will be made of the filmiest
nf chiffons or shadow laces, combined
with embroidered chiffons, while th
lrapery of the skirt will be the
heaviest and richest of brocaded or cut
velvet, edged with fur.
"As the extreme of materials are
combined, so are colors. One of the
favorite combinations, is mahogany
and new blue, royal purple with var
ious shades of brass, terra cotta and
pigeon blue. Terra cotta by the way
is one of the newest colors. Scotch
plaids are decidedly popular and are
used to a great extent in gowns,
either as the body or as the trimming.
A Futurist Gonn,
"A futurist gown, of soft silky crepe
in the color arrangement suggestive of
the school of painting which name it
bears, is among the new models. The
gown Is made on very simple line in
one piece with a draped skirt.
"For evening full dress wear, while
almost all the models are shown en
train, this does not mean that the
short dancing length frock bag gone
TJesds and Jets
"Beads and jets are very much used,
there is the Spinx robe for evening
wear formed entirely of black and
blue black beads. All the accessories
for the evening gown must corres
pond with the character of the gown,
and all of the imported evening
gowns have their evening wraps to
match. '
"Novelties of dress accessories are
the sashes. These come in Roman
stripes, Scotch plaids, or plain sashes.
Then for evening scarfs, there are de
signs in beaded chiffons, elaborately
wrought with pearls and irridescent
beads. The Cubist scarfs, of beaded
chiffons are popular.
Vanity and Bridge Bags.
"In hand bags there are several dis
tinct novelties. One, the - real vanity
bag, has a mirror encased in the flap.
Some also contain small watches, and
are made of crepe seal leather. An
other novelty is the bridge hand bag.
containing, besides the mirror, purse
and calling card case, a score pad and
compartment ror a deck of cards.
Fewer Curled Ostrich Feathers.
"Hats are radically different from
those of last year, and Mas Posener,
of the White House Millinery depart
ment, took up several models to il
lustrate. "The hat is smaller, sets
higher on the head, has higher trim
ming, and is duller in color. The
prevailing mode is a very small, de
cidedly chic hat, devoid of trimming
save for some startling sword feather,
or whip end fancy feather aigret. to
shoot up at some telling point on the
hat. Black is the reigning color,
feathers dominate in the trimming,
and the size of the hat will show moro
of the coiffure than for the three past
seasons. There will be few curled
ostrich feathers worn, the long, un
finished plumes, uncurled, being the
Like Old Poke Bonnet.
"The Kiniche hat resembles the old
style poke bonnet in front, with a con
siderable scoop in the back. Of other
models that will be very popular are
the Poliare, named after the popular
French actress who rules Paris at the
present moment. This Is on a Rus
sian order, made of brocaded cloth of
gold, with blue color motif, fur trim
ming and a big stick-up." Tho
Vlvandlre' hat is a very small, close
nttlng affair. The 'stick-up Is a very
prominent part of all hat trimming,
iiny ostrich tips are fastened to slim
velvet stems 10 or 12 inches long and
poised on the hat like aigrets. form
ing the whip-end stickup. Then there
is the golf-stick 'stick-up.' where
some cloth material ls USed and the
handle of a golf stick is reproduced
at the end of the stick-up.
The Butterfly Motif.
"Iext to this and newer in the fash
Ion -world is the butterfly motif. But
terflies of -veUet, of net, of black beads
and jets, of the filmiest laces, and
manufactured of feathers are placed
on hats at Jaunty angles, often form
ing their only trimming.
"Another new thing is the Velvet
chin strap. With the 'Kiniche' and
many of the larger hats, the chin
strap of velvet ribbon is quite prom
inent. "Gold lace ig used a great deal on
the extra dressy patterns, and is a
most effective combination with black
or any of the new popular shades. Fur
sets, of toque, muff and scarf are the

Player Piano Crowding Out the
Old Straight, Upright Piano
Dull Finish in Pianos Is the Newest Thing The New Music Bolls for Player
Pianos Have Words on Them for the Singers.
((tTIs conceded by piano manufac
turers that within two years
there will be no more straight
upright pianos manufactured, if the
popularity of the player piano contin
ues at the present rate," said Mrs. K It.
Jenkins, of the Jenkins Piano company.
"The player piano is what we call
the man's pianof for a business man
who would have absolutely no time to
practice, can indulge his fondness for
music in a player piano and enjoy a
quality of selections that would take
years and years of study before they
could be played by hand.
ine player piano is also a boon to
the busy housewife and mother, giving
her the pleasure of music which she
would have to forego otherwise. Then
a player piano can -oe used for the
children to learn to play by hand.
"The newest thing in player pianos
Is the Henry and & U. X,indeman player
piano, that has the new melody grand
sounding board arranged with a schew
appliance that prevents the sounding
board from flattening. In con
sequence of this, the piano will al
ways retain the same tone it had when
new. We sell at least two nlaver ni-
anos to one straight piano. I doubt
if the grand piano -nill eTer be influ
enced by the player mechanism, as It
is so essentially a hand artist's instru
ment, but the day of,the upright piano
without the player mechanism is cer
tainly past. The music is cut with the
song words so that it play3 the accom
paniment, carries th thems and has
the breathing marks and expression
directions for singing.
"In piano finishing, there is a grow
ing tendency towards the dull finish,
to match the new dull finiih fad in
furniture. We sell a great many Cir
cassian walnut cases in the new dull
finish. The Louis XV shapes and Co
lonial are popular and the mission style
and finish continues as popular as

This is exactly opposite fom the old
Daenport folding couch style, as when
the springs are turned out at full
length, the back of the couch forms the
head of the full width bed, instead of
the side as in the old way."
Arts and Crafts the Latest.
"Arts and Crafts is the latest thing
in the furniture line," said G. L. Hoyt,
of the Hoyt Furniture Co., "and is go
ing to bo very popular. It is on the
modified mission order, on simple lines,
neat, strong and comfortable, and has
a special appeal to sensible western
people, it is pricea so uiu.l everyone
can buy It. The new 'period' furnitures
are much shown in the east, and there
is a popular demand for the simpler
kinds. I do not think that the Jacob
ean furniture will ever be popular in
the west, on account of the difficulty
in keeping the intricate carvings free
from dust. This period showS a very
artistic design, but it is also a very
expensive one. Shenton furniture for
bed room sets is popular, and the Co
lonial period furniture, for Its simplic
ty, is always popular.
"Oak, of all the other woods takes
precedence in popularity at the present
time and comes in different finishes,
of which the fumed oak is the most
in demand. For real handsome furni
ture, to suit the fastidious, mahogany,
the king of all woods. Is always the

rinishes. Shenton, antique, Toona and
natural Mist people prefer the old
rich toned mahogany over the newer
