CHILDREN’S COATS # Novelties Seen in Woolens, Vet vets, Plushes, Fur Fabrics. The styles show a close relationship to women’s garments, as manufac turers have found by experience what sells well with the grown-ups is us ually popular with little folks. In view of the fact that the gar ments are made on simple lines much attention has been given to the se lection of the fabrics. Novelty wool ens with a rough surface like zlbe linos are particularly good. These are shown in plain colors, stripes and small plaids. Eponge in plain colors and novelty weaves are also meeting with fair success. Velour de laine, cut velour and other fabrics of this kind are used in some of the better coats. ' Loop yarn fabrics are well thought of by some of the houses who make popular priced merchandise. Chin chillas, as usual, are selling in large quantities. Broadcloths are particu larly desirable in small size coats in Do Not Trifle With Your Eyes Let Us Help You Thousands of satisfied cus tomers are today wearing our flasses, enthusiastic over tha act they have real eye com fort and saved themselves the exorbitant charges which were In force before we established our modern optical office.

Cheviots and serges are among the staples that are to be found In prac tically all of the leading lines. Much Interest has been shown in plain and novelty velvets. Plushes lioth plain and pressed are also be ing used to considerable extent. Fur fabrics are already selling In large quantities and many believe they will be better than they ever have been In children’s coats. The collars are of various shapes, many being modifications of the sailor, which always looks *well on children. Quite a number of stand ing collars are noted on the new models. Cape collars are being shown again. The uso of belts and sashes is very pronounced. In the majority of cases they are placed below the waist line and are quite broad. The sashes are frequently of satin in a matching shade to the coat, but novelty ribbons are being employed on some of the better numbers, such as plaids, Roman stripes and print ed effects. The belts are usually of the same material as the coat itself, or of patent leather or of suede. Pleats starting at the shoulder line and reaching to the hem of the coat, somewhat on the order of a Nor folk, are employed in many of the models that have largest sale. The Russian coat fastening over at the left shoulder and finishing off with a belt is also meeting with considerable success. Novelties show ing odd cut seams, deep yokes and other Piw ideas are also being taken by the trade. COLORED DRESSES In these the combination of two fabrics Is frequently seen, the fabrics employed being silk and crepe de chine, silk and serge, or silk and cashmere. Combinations of plaids or checks with plain colors are also finding favor. Combinations of two colors are also recommended. In fact, children's wear manufacturers believe the use of two different fabrics or of two different colors will take even bet ter in the little folks’ sections than in those where adults' wear is sold. Coat effects, Russian blouses, modi fied Norfolks, middies and boleros are notable style features of many of the dresses. The use of belts or sashes, placed at the lowered waistline promises to be larger than ever. Vel vet ribbons, in black or colors, also silk ribbons in Roman stripes, plaids, brocades and printed effects, make a very effective trimming and are be ing used considerably, both In the medium and In the better grade dresses. Party frocks of lace, net or chiffon, in white or in colors, are being shown in many different styles. These are effectively trimmed with ribbon sashes, and sometimes with small artificial flowers. A Hint for the Home Laundress When a garment has become too dry for ironing it Is difficult to damp it over evenly, but this method solves all difficulty. Damp well and roll it up tight and wrap in a clean cloth and then in paper. Put it in the oven while the Irons are heating. The warmth of the oven will cause the damp to come right through the gar ment evenly and It can be easily ironed. Care must be taken that the oven Is not too hot.

Hallet & Davis Piano Co. 605 Broad Street ••The Home of Plano Quality and Right Prices” LACES WILL BE POPULAR -•- A_ Very Lightweight Types In dicated—Plain Nets in Great Vogue. From a fashion standpoint, both here and in Paris, laces will be in de mand. A good proportion of the ad vance model gowns for fall are trimmed with lace, and the general trend of style is such as to promise plentiful opportunities for its use. Flounced skirts have been strug gling for full recognition during sev eral seasons past, and It now seems as If they might achieve widespread success. They are highly favored In dancing frocks and in women's party dresses of an informal character. Moreover, they are now being employed in tailor mades, which would seem to signify their final acceptance as a strong style feature. Both two and three flounclngs are noted on the new skirts, which when developed in laces, call chiefly for 18 to 27-tnch flounclngs. Blouses and dresses made entire ly of nets and light laces have been a big Item in the market this season, and manufacturers expect to again feature them strongly for fall. The vogue for corset covers ol plain and of fancy nets and all overs is also expected to continue In full force. Soft, filmy, light-weight laces are to dominate the fall demand. This opinion Is, of course, based upon the suitability of the light types to flounced skirts, to transparent blouses and to draped effects, wheth er they are used In the bodice or In the skirt portion of a costume. The new light laces will bo varied In character, having the features of may laces used in combination. Bhadow and Chantilly combinations will be especially prominent. Very high-priced shadow and maline novelties will be widely represented. Some of the best of these will have point Alencon features. Opinions differ somewhat as to the strength of net-tops for fall. The majority, however, believe that net tops -with exceedingly dainty and filmy designs In the border will have a place In exclusive lines, while the more strictly speaking net-top or oriental flouncings will be fair sellers in medium and popular-priced lines, especially on account of their prac tical nature. Even more widely do opinions dif fer regarding metal laces. Some buy ers have confidently made prepara tions for a good demand, while others almost entirely neglected metals In their purchases. Steel and silver are more abun dantly represented In the foreign markets than gold, but It is thought that, as usual, gold will lead In this market. Only the very softest, light est effects In metal are mentioned with confidence. Metal-run maline and shadow laces are In fair rep resentation, as are also silk-run ef fects. A moderate distribution of colored laces Is expected. The new colored novelties are In Chinese and Egyp tian designs, In soft, rich color com binations. MUSLIN UNDERWEAR 4 Both Fabrics and Trimmings Selected to Meet Requirements Following the fashions In costumes undergarments are very close-flttlng and are made with flat trimmings. The culotte form of pantaloons, the knee-length chemise, the close-flttlng corset cover and brassiere, and the combination garment of snug lines— all hold to the one Idea of maintain ing the slender silhouette. Manufacturers of lingerie have been compelled to adopt the sheerest materials, and fabric manufacturers who supply them have given the mat ter of sheerness special attention, while trimming manufacturers are also doing all they can to meet the present requirements. Especially are manufacturers of machine embroideries taking Into account the fashion needrf. They are bringing out beautiful lines of ma chine-made goods that accord en tirely with the new Ideas. Fine nain sooks and batistes, sheer crepes and even organdies are being used for foundations for machine embroidery Intended for lingerie purposes. Some of the foundations are In drawn thread effect, thus adding to the transparency and lightness. This, in addition to the very open designs seen in some of the new embroideries and the lace-like work In some of the patterns, gives a distinctly new p——-— character to the fashionable em broidery. While undergarments have gone into slighter dimensions and lessening fullness they have taken on a fine ness of character not heretofore seen. Thus, In the employment of machine embroideries, there are entire gar ments cut from the ail-overs. The new lines Include nightgowns, bras sieres, corset covers and even culottes made of all-over embroideries. This is an absolutely new idea, and Indi cates a larger distribution and con sumption of high-class embroideries. To further lighten the effect of undergarments designers of high class novelties are using net pleat lngs, frllllngs, puffs and Insertions. Some of the embroidery garments have these insertions and edges of tulle to lighten their character. Another novelty in high-class lingerie lines Is the use of colored linens for bindings and Insertion strifes. For the present moment the high novelty In color is yellow, though rose color Is much favored. Delicate embroideries done on foun dations of net are seen both In hand made and In machine-made goods. Undergarments of almost priceless value show very expensive trimmings In hand-embroidered and hand-ap pliqued nets. Sometimes the em broidered net forms the entire upper half of the chemise and likewise of the nightgown, thereby reaching the extremity In the transparency of undergarments. The Novelty Veils Tulle face veils In countless designs are among the new items of interest, many of them having but a single spot In the whole veil. The main object in wearing this veil is to bring the spot over the precise part of the face where it will look most bewitching. It should be placed either under the left eye, at the cor ner of the mouth or close to the lobe of the ear. On hats with brims bristling with feathers, aigrettes or tulle frills, blue, violet, red or green tulle should be worn, transformed by means of one velvet spot, to be worn as described. These veils are difficult to put on above the hat borders. Place care fully beneath the tulle frill or the aigrette fringe; then fasten with two or three large-headed pins matching either the veil or the hat. Bring the folds round to the back 1 of your neck and fix them tight to gether by means of a brooch, or else leave the veil loose with two ends falling at the back. A veil worn this way is especially suited to wom en with regular features and should be ot lace design. Bight tulles in pink, blue or white with wide meshes and pearly bowers of a lighter shade, relieved by a thread of black silk, are charming worn with toques without brims. Veils In sea green or sun color are prettiest with light-colored dresses. They are raised above the hat brim in front and then allowed to fall behind in folds over the shoulders. Among the novelty veils are those painted in vivid colors, and tulles with fine meshes drawn tight as wire netting, and loose nets adorned with five black velvet specks here and there. Black or white is most suitable to wear with a black velvet or tulle hat. Oddities in Fall Fashions One of the strangest and yet Indi vidual arrangements of the hair Is the "Fuzzy-Wuzzy” ringlet. It is macfe of the hair near the ear, twisted about a bit of the thinnest of gold wire. A novelty in wedding rings is very narrow, with close-set diamonds around the circle. The chauffeur's hat of velvet and the Eiffel Tower plume are among the new millinery oddities. The hoop tunic will be seen in this country in the fall and winter in mod ified form. . A long oval side panel on a new skirt is weighted down by a long silk tassel. The new "nun’s headdress” of dia monds and lace is quite the rage in Paris. Fancy vestees of net, lace or chif fon are very smart and pretty. Butterflies of tulle are worn at the heck, or at the waist line, just as the single rose is worn. In the new millinery chin straps are gaining in favor. SMART KERCHIEFS. If you would have the credit of pos sessing chic belongings have your given name embroidered on one cor ner of your handkerchief, says the Chicago Inter-Ocean. If the bordering is colored the name must bo in a matching tone, and if the handker chief is in all white the lettering must match it. If you don’t want all the world to know what is your given name have merely your initials done in the daintiest possible manner in the popular long style, in the corner of a handkerchief that is either fin ished with scalloping or hemstitch ing; but if you would furnish no trace of your identity have only one corner of the linen embroidered in coronet design. THE NEW TAFFETA. Many of the new fall evening gowns are taffeta, not the old styled weave, with the starched effect, but of a soft, light and pliable texture, which nevertheless retains its rus tle. This material, though an im provement. still requires the com bination of a softer material as chif fon or mousseline to make it highly successful In making the present styled gowna. Coiffure Styles Millinery fashions determine to a great extent what hair fashions shall be. It is necesasry to dress the hair very high or very low in order to wear the new hats becomingly. In the case of high hair dressing the hat fits over a French roll, showing only the soft waves of hair In' the back. Waved hair will be universally fa vored. as it tends to give a fluffy, full effect to any arrangements. The hair may be parted either in the centre or on the side, preferably at the side. The low, flat pompadour may be worn with low or high hair dressings. A fringe across the forehead and the little cluster or curls tucked in at the j side or back are becoming touches. Covering the ears with soft waves of hair, and the little fringe over the forehead add much to the becoming ness of the new fall hats. Shapes are small and close-fitting, and the hair in Its new arrangement forms a pretty and becoming frame to the face. The following is a leading head dress for the fall. Three articles are necessary to its completion. A round casque of hair without wire and with a hole In the centre: a roll of hair over which the hair Is rolled to form a French twist and a twenty-six-inch twist or two twenty-two-inch twists, which form the twist an4 the swath ing around the head. The hair is waved, forming a flat pompadour, brought loosely down over the ears and to the crown of the head, where it Is tied. The casque Is pinned to the crown of the head, the switch being brought through the centre and divided In two parts; then It is rolled over the roll, attached to the head at the top, and again at the nape of the neck, forming a French- ; roll effect. Novel Hat An interesting hat is of printed j chiffon, mounted on net, and then mounted on a white srtaw hat. The net and chiffon are bound to the straw about the edge of the brim with wide silver braid. BOX COATS FOR GIRLS THIS FALL. Among the fall styles for girls from twelve to sixteen years of age is the box coat similar to one in vogue sev eral years ago. Its revival will be an aid to mothers who find it hard to dress the daughter of that age be comingly. If she has grown rapidly it is particularly difficult to select styles adapted to her figure, which at that age lacks the graceful lines of either the shown woman or the little girl, for she is just between the two and wears garments which will rather hide than emphasize the lines of the figure. The new box coat is cut on straight lines and many of them are given a touch of brightness by the addition of a gay vest, collar and cuffs. A wide silk girdle is frequently used as a fin ish, or a belt of leather or of the same material as the coat Is sometimes used. COLORED FURS MAY BE WORN. The craze for novelty shades in furs bids fair to Include colored fox, skunk in dyed Btripee, and dyed mole and seal. Hunters' green, navy blue or dark purple mole and seal may be bought as easily as orange, yellow fox, rose-striped skunk or pale blue rab bit. WOMEN’S NECKWEAR Extremely picturesque, and, at the same time, comfortable styles In j neckwear are prevalent In Paris. Al- j most without exception the throat Is j exposed, while at the back of the neck the collars are high and flaring. These high-backed collars, wired and usually transparent, are seen on elab orate evening toilettes, with ex tremely low-cut bodices, and in less 1 extreme form, on afternoon toilettes. Quite remarkable to state, these wired forms, while appearing two years ago as an extreme novelty, are only Just now coming into general use in Paris. The surplice outline for the front of the bodice brings into fashion fichu effects. Small fichu ends are added to these smart wired collarq. And to some of the newer flat collars outlined with simple frills. Normandy fluting is now highly favored In Paris. Most of the new neckwear, whether It be In the form of collar or fichu, has the border either of flutings or plaitlngs. Both linen and net frills are employed. DISGUISED LORGNETTES. The disguised lorgnette is the smart thing. Its mission is to look precisely what It is not. Often it takes the form of a diamond or square or round-shaped pendant suspended from a neekchain and easily detached and held to the eve by a short stem. Again, it appears in the form of a tiny, vinaigrette whose gold or silver framed crystal sides first open lengthwise and then spring apart. Not infrequently It has the appear ance of a tiny change purse swinging from the chatelaine by a separate chain. SPOTS ON DRESSES. Spots in light dresses may gener ally be removed by laying them on a paste made of fuller’s earth and eau de cologne. Let it dry and then brush it off. A second application may be necessary. Some of the early fall hats seem little more than ruffles of plaited ma line or shadow lace, the wiring per mitting them to be bent to suit the face.
