Handsome Coat for General Wear
American textiles have been mak
ing rapid advancos in Oneness and dis
tinction of weave. This holds good es
pecially of cotton, but is true of wool
and silk as well. This remarkablo
advance in tho art of weaving Is
brought forcibly to mind by tho now
"fabric furs" manufactured for tho
coming season. Last year wo called
them "fur-cloths," which is a truly
descriptive name for them. But man
ufacturers, having made some of them
so like tho fur of animals in appear
ance, have newly named them, and
fabric furs thoy are.
Not all of tho cloths of this kind
aro woven to imitate furs. Ejome of
them are supple with silky surfaces
and aro used for costumes. Many
others aro of a heavy fur-liko texture
and are used for topcoats and as
trimmings on other cloths. With tho
advance of tho season they aro like
ly to appear often in muffs and neck
pieces. Already at tho milliners be
witching three-piece sets, including
turban, muff and , neckplcco, are
shown made up in these fabrics, and
often thoy are trimmed with bands
of real fur. These new textiles aro
rich in appearance and very durable.
Thoy combine tho warmth of fur with
