WOMEN'S ATTENTION TURNED TO [ GARMENTS FOR WINTER. h i > ~~- r ~~-- ' • ■'■■ --.^' S 'H IIQW THE SIvALSKIX IS 171A812. Skirts This Fall Are Very Much • .Trimmed — Itadfern Says He Is Making More Braided Gowns Than Kver Before — ** Mnnnish Styles Still Popular- Styles in General. Bpecial Letter to the Globe. New i'onK, Nov. 10.— still the coat takes up the principal amount of our attention. It is getting a little bit nesressive, this coat, and sticks out about the knees at such a wide angle .that it is quite a relief to hear that •woman is-to go back to the apparel of her infancy and wear a pelisse. The pelisse is one of those things that looks better tl an it feels. However, as that is a fault with us moderns, perhaps It isn't worth mentioning. Appear ances are everything and comfort quite an old-fashioned sensation. No smart woman studies the latter as long as she has the former. And so the pelises will po. It will be trimmed mostly with chinchilla. This is a babyish kind of fur. years ap:o children used to wear it, bo it seems as if women were coing to be decidedly kittenish this winter and to wear decidedly infantine clothes. Have you a sealskin coat? This is a question almost equivalent to asking you what your income is; but some one who has studied the subject has said that no woman dies happy without one. so one is naturally anxious to know if most v omen are likely to expire in a con ten t e i state. If you are likely to attain this Btate of beatitude be sure that the gar ment of happiness is made tight-fitting and with a very long full basque, and that the sleeves have a drooping full ness. A velvet coat, i think 1 explained last week, is a thing much to be de- Bired, and costumes of velvet are also very popular. These are made of ribbed and shaded velvets. They are trimmed with narrow bands of fur, or are quite plain. The quite plain ones are" infinitely the most stylish. Kedfern tells me that he is making more braided towns than any other kind. The basques, which are cut so as to fall in and out with a kind of undulating full ness, are thickly braided. The sleeves are braided half-way ud, and the skirts are already much trimmed. All kinds of handsome designs are carried out on the hip portion of the skirts. Mannish ptyles are still to the fore. Frock coats are getting more flaring in the skirts. Bud the revers are made as much in Severe imitation of men's as a woman's Curves will allow. The revers of these zarments are nearly all faced with moire. 17 Jpp[ fe I'm !| ;; % f I l ' X Our first skirt sketch shows one of Red fern's flare-skirted coats, braided, and with a collar and trimming ot wol rerine. It will be seen by the sketch thai the coat is long, and that the skirt 9f it is cut much ilared. The color is » reseda green.and the braiding is black md gold. The back is braided in mili tary style up vhe seams. The next is a warm walking costume of chestnut-colored cloth, trimmed with black moire. The double-breasted, tiglit-fittiusr, open bodice has a long basque, which does not extend all the vay round, and the collar is cut very fcigh, encirclinc a stock to imitate those of cur grandfather?. The skirt is open In front over a panel of the silk. Lk Bahos i,e Bbkmoht. $25 in Gold Given Away. ?25 every week. See advertisement of the Plymouth Clothing House on page 3.

How Mrs. Stanford Manages the Estates of Her Late Husband. Mrs. Leland Stanford has developed some remarkably able and surprising business characterises since on the ath of her hus nd. the late natorfromCal ornia, she as nied the man eineut of his ast estates. She las aston i s h e d er most inti nate friends by ler grasp of af airsandcorupre- lenslon of de ils, and by the arvelousquick ess with which MBS. STAAFORD. sj,e j s al) j e tQ reach decisions in matters women are ordinarily not acquainted with. Few women have ever had the man agement of tluee lance ranches— B,ooo, 17,000 and 75,000 acres respectively— the administration of the fiuances of a uni versity and the direction of several mil lion dollars' worth of other properties, and not many women having bucli vast responsibilities thrust upon them as they were thrust upon Mrs. Stanford would exhibit the same confidence in them selves and independence of others. Most women who become admiuislrators of big estates depend as a rule on the judgment and advice of others. Mrs. Stanford keeps the reins in her own hands and manages her affairs with wonderful sagacity, energy and deter mination. Most of Mrs. Stanford's property Is to revert on her death to the Leland Stan ford Jr. university, founded by her late husband and berself in honor of their only son, who died some years ago. The endowment is greater than any institu tion of learning has ever been blessed with, probably over $.jO,0(KJ.OOO, and Mrs. Stanford's sole aim in life now is to make her vast estates as profitable as possible, so that the university may reap the benefit. She is in absolute con trol", and is rapidly getting the different properties in a condition to yield the maximum of revenue with the minimum of expenditure, so that it is probable the trustees of the university will have but little opportunity to improve on her work when the property finally comes under their administration. Mrs. Stanford is sixty-eight years old, but her health Is excellent and she seems incapable of fatigue. She is at her desk every morning at an earlier hour than most business men, aud gives much closer attention to details than the senator did in his lifetime. All bills must have *ier O. K. before beam paid, and she baa curtailed expenditures in every possible way consistent with properly maintaining: the estates at their greatest productive capacity. Her usual charitable work is not allowed to sutt'er, however. She still maintains her inter est in the numerous kindergartens and other charitable institutions, which she has done so much to foster and tor which she has made ample provisions in case of her death. HANDSOMi; AND WISE. Sketch of a AVell Known Writer and Journalist. The subject of this sketch is a young and beautiful woman, who is widely known as the author of some thriliing stories which have been published in book form, a writer of charming vers de societe and a successful worker iu the more difficult liehl of journalism. She was born in Panama, Chautauqua coun ty, N. Y., her father being Hon. Walter L. Sessions, a prominent figure in the politics of the state and a mem ber of the New York board of managers of the Columbian exposition. The youthful but ambitious Miss Ses sions, soon after her graduation from Vassar college, began her professional career as a correspondent of the Buffalo Express. Among her many admirers was Horace E. Tapper, a Canadian gen tleman with extensive railroad inter ests, to whom she gave her heart and hand. After her marriage Mrs. Tupper moved to Chicago, where her talents found a broader held for their expres sion and development. For the llurald of that city she wrote special articles, interviews, etc., and was the winner of the Chicago Tribune's prize of $iOO for the best story of 40,000 words. The de lightful novelette, "The BlacK Dia mond Bracelet," published by the for mer journal, was the product of her clever peu. Keturning later to her na- EDITH SESSIONS TIIWKtt, tive state she contributed a series of New York letters to the same newipa THE SAINT PAUL DAg/T C&ffkfc 'SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 12, J B93. —SIXTEEN PAGBST AN OPEN SECRET I CfOCkSfy D§pt« Bedßoom « That This Has Been Our Best Year!

Among the latter children of her brain is a splendid novel, which is soon to be issued in serial form. A number of Bhorter stories are also among the results of this gifted woman's tireless industry. It is frequently stated that the pecu niary rewards of literary work are but seldom commensurate with the genius required and the energy displayed, aud yet Mrs. Tupper points with pardonable pride to one of the coziest little homes of Passaic, N.

She has a wide acquaintance among political, musical and theatrical people and was engaged in writing a play for the late W. J. Florence when the actor's lament ed death interfered with the work.

The veracious chronicler of the Mead ville Tribune vouches for the following remarkable fishing adventure of one of bis townsmen: He was out in the easterr part of the county gunning, and while eating; his lunch he carelessly tossed a piece of bread into a small stream at his feet when he was surprised to see a perfect swarm of trout begin fighting for the bread. Searching eagerly through all his pockets, he was greatly disappointed that he had no 6ign of fishing tackle, aa the trout were evidently hungry, and if he only had a hook and line he could easily catch all he wanted. While trying to evolve a plan for the capture of some of the trout, the gentle man noticed an Immense black snake lying on a stump sunning itself, and immediately he recalled that his father had told him, a good many years ago how expert black snakes were in catch ing trout. After a little thought on the subject the gentleman determined to try it, and picking his way cautiously to ' the stump he grabbed the snake by the tail. THE SNAKE ENTERED UTTO THE SPORT The black snake evidently didn't un- derstand at first just what was wanted of him and for some time after ho had been soused into the water he continued to twist and squirm and tried to eet away. But finally the snake spied a big trout peeping out from behind a stone, and like a Hash the reptile darted out and seized the lish in its mouth. The instant the snake grabbed the fish the gentleman, who held the snake by the tail, pulled and landed his trout, the snake letting go as soon as it was hauled out on the bank. The next time he struck the snake into the water it seemed to understand better what was wanted, and very soon grabbed another trout. By the time a half-dozen trout had been taken the snake had entered into the sport in real earnest, and in the course of an hour the gentleman had captured with his queer tackle over forty fine trout, and not caring for more ne let the snake go, gathered up his fish and went home. It was about a week later that the gentleman passed by the spot where he had captured the trout, and while he was standing on the bank looking at the speckled beauties as they darted through the clear water, he felt some thing rubbing his leg. Looking down, he was surprised to see his old friend, the black snake.
