WOMEN INVITED TO MEETING Home Economics Association Urges Farmers' Wives to Attend Ses slon January 17 to 21. . m . iff i.i. .n.nB, .-I 1 There is nothing better suited to the sports-coats of winter than the chin chilla fur fabrics, which are manufac tured in white au well as colors, and in some mixtures. They aro practi cal as well as bright and showy, and aro made up in plain models and in handsonio fur-trimmed garments as well. For skating, caps to match are made of the material, quito often combined with some other fabric or with fur. Tho very dressy skating costumes, made of velvet or plush and fur trimmed, offer many suggestions for making up tho more matter-of-fact chinchilla coats and caps. They aro modeled most attractively on Russian lines, which aro incomparably smart for really wearable outdoor clothes. Tho plainest and most unambitious of chinchilla sports-coats is pictured Millinery designed for those who journey South to meet tho spring is distinctly gay and pretty in coloring. It presents moro novelty In tho way of materials used in making it up than in shape. Two of tho now doml-season hats which aro among thoso classed as "Palm Beach" models aro shown hero and they aro quito attractlvo enough to deservo tho namo of Ameri ca's great southern resort. However, they aro designed for and destined to servo tho tourist wherever she may wander. At tho loft a logical shape for sunny lands is pictured in a French sailor of irregular width of brim. It is mado of gray-bluo georgette crepe, much like tho familiar alico blue, combined with tho now Tokyo leathor. Tho groundwork of tho leather is of tho same color as tho crepe and its sur face is covered with a mass of curi ous oriental figures In beautifully soft and gay colors. This leather forms tho top of tho crown and covers tho upper brim, which 13 faced with tho cropo and finished at tho edge with a wide flange of it. Tho little wings, posed at tho right sldo, aro mado of tho cropo and leath er and mounted with a narrow band of black fur which reappears about tho baso of tho crown. . A small narrow-brimmed model which will make tho purchaser pauso before sho decides on any other Is an adorablo hat of coral pink faille and Tokyo leathor. Tho crown is of tho faillo silk and tho brim has a back ground of palo ollvo green and tho usual intricato pattern In colored fig ures over tho surface. At tho front two big rosebuds of silk, otio in coral and tho other in light mustard color, Crmi I u imiii ill III j 1 1 i 1 u mj Millinery to Meet the Spring : k VVV r4' ATh 1 above. It is cut on lines so slinplo that it does not need description, and it3 intent iB plainly to bo purely practical. It presents no difficulties to tho homo dressmaker. Even tho roll ing collar is easy to manago becauso of tho elasticity of the material. A "Tarn" cap of tho same material with yarn balls or pompons for trimming is equally easy to manago. Chinchilla can bo recommended for children's coats, as it includes all tho essentials of clothes for winter, be ing soft and warm, attractive and du rable. Tho prettiest of long coats, for very small girls, aro mado of white chinchilla and worn with white fur muffs and neckpieces and pretty bonnets of heavy whlto silk. Whero tho coat is intended for general wear, brown or bluo or tho regular chinchilla mixturo is chosen. aro mounted with two sprays of white borrles and a few dark-green leaves. A light yellow bud with berries is placed at tho base of tho crown In tho back. Tho silk buds aro elaborat ed with a tiny braid about tho outside petals and for onco tho rosso has been adorned successfully with a final lov ing touch of beauty. Sashes and Tulle Skirts. One of the difficulties about the very full skirts is that they soraotlnieg look bulky, and are bulky, about the waist and hips. Tho Paris dressmak ers have been trying various expe dients to overcome this bulklness over since they began to experiment with tho full Bklrts. With a tullo skirt por haps tho best way Is to have a sash, cither a narrow band or a wide, soft ribbon folded narrow, fastened rather loosely about the hips. It restrains the excessive fullnos!?, but at tho samo tlmo docs not form a harsh lino. Velvet Foot Rests Are Unusual. Velvet foot rests for homo use are new and unusual, boing decorated with a now stylo of work. Ono which measures throo-quartcrs of a yard long, 18 inches wldo and 12 Inches high. Is covored with blnck volvet piped with llamo color, and In tho con tor thero Is an applied yellow velvet baBket. Tho basket la filled with ap ples and grapes mado of velvet and stuffed to half their natural size.' Thltj work also appears on other and dif ferently shaped reste.
