.Much More So Than English

Scotland 1b a far more dotnocrutlc
country than England. Who ahull any
why a land Unit venerates an old and
proud aristocracy tdiould have uniong
its common people a sturdy democrat
ic Bclf-respcct? 1'erhaps Scottish
democracy owes something to the
land's having lucked for more than
thrco centuries a resident king. For
'much of that time ulso It has hud a
(reading and thinking peasantry. The
Scotch wero stubbornly truo to the
Sturat cause, but perhaps If their mi
jtlvo royal family had been resident
In Scotland when James 11. was driven
from the throne the two Pretenders
'would havo fouud fewer frb-nds to
'aid them In their vain invasions. Hob
lert Burns, also, has long been n
'strong democratic Influence in Scot
land, as by far the greatest British
'poet of unmixed peasant blood.
Whatever the causes that He bo
jhlnd the peculiar spirit of the Scot
tish common folk, the American trav
eler who Is sympathetic with democ
racy feels it In tho atmosphere as
Isoon as ho sets foot within the coun
try. Thero is a look in the eyes of
the Scottish workman, skilled or un
skilled, that is not commonly seen iu
his English brother. It is easy to de
tect the greater poverty of the rural
Scot after one leaves the English lake
country, with its simple and homely
comfort for all and Its rich fields of
grass and grain, ita fat horses and
cattle, its walled and embowered
farmsteads, its air of well-peopled
country and a well-housed population.
In spite of comparatively rich valleys
in tho lowlands of Scotland, the coun
try Is manifestly not so rewarding to
tho toil of tho farmer as tho region 100
miles further south. Many of the farm
steads aro without trees or shrubs, and
unadorned with flowers, while tho
larger fields indicate a sparser popula
tion. Tho hills, beautiful though they
are, tako on a bleak aspect beneath
clouded skies and country folks aro
less comfortably clad than those of ru-'

ONE of the full, short coats trimmed
with fur which nre unlike those of
any previous season and immensely
successful now, Is shown In tho pic
ture. A muff of tho fur used for a bor
der about tho bottom of tho coat and
appearing in the collar Is worn with
coats of this kind.
Costly broadtail fur is used in tho
body of this luxurious wrap, and Fitch
fur trims It. Few wraps of broad
tall aro worn, in deference to a senti
ment which has grown up against it.
Tho handsomest plushes make up Into
wraps quite as beautiful, and are fur
nished with tho same expensive furs
in borders and muffs.
The heavier furs will not answer
for wraps of this kind. Nutural and
dyed squirrel and ermine aro used,
and sealskin is ideal for ample gar
ments which must not bo too heavy.
Instead of furs, handsome plushes are
used for garments which aro to be
within a reasonable cost. TheBo
plushes in the best grades are high
priced fabrics, but at that, much less
costly than fur. There aro cheaper
grades that will look well and outlast
the season. For wraps and outside
garments nothing Is more fashionable
and more satisfactory than the plush
imitations of fur, which are often bo
closo in appearunco to the original
as to deceive tho average- eye.
Tho furB most favored for trimming
coats are martin, skunk, civet cat, fitch
and fox. These are the moderately
long haired furs. Mink and sablo and
ermine (all growing higher In price
constantly) are also employed. All
furs nro used In wide and narrow band-

these were a few extrcmoly high and
really very pretty now Ideas.
Changes nre coming nnd, in' fact,
have arrived, but no dollnlte stylo has
established Itself as a universal favor
ite yet. The liking for covering the
top of the car remains. But huir which
has boon encroaching upon the face,
over the cheekB, is no longer good
Ingtt, and In trimmings for costumes,
Sleeves in the new wraps nro very
roomy the kimono nnd bnt-wlng
styles ,)re ailing. Thero 1b no trou
ble about crushing the bodice under
fur wraps, because of the light weight
of furs ufced in the body of the wraps,
and there are ample sleeves and armt
eyes. The hat worn with this pretty coat
is of black velvet, ono of few hav
ing u blocked crown. The trimming lb
a generous, fan-shaped spray of soft
white feathers. Thero is an attractive
and novel bag carried for the accom
modation of the various belongings
which vanity fnlr must needs have near
at all times. The coin purse, handker
chief, powder puff, etc., placed in
email compartments on -ho Inside, do
not distort tho shape of this plain and
elegant accessory. It is of knitted
silk finished with silver rings and
silver fllagrco monogram, and is car
ried by a silk cord.
Good furs, in garments or in trim
mings, amount to a good investment,
if well cared for. It 1b not likely that
tho cost will grow less; all the
chances are that it will increase for
several years. But furs must be
cared for. Tho industrious moth will
succeed in finding them when one
thinks ho is well shut out. Cold stor
age is therefore good for furs, but
they may bo protected by placing
them In paper bags with moth balls,
and In cedar chests. They should be
examined occasionally, bung In the
sun and beaten. Tho Bunlight Is deatb.
Tho chances arc that In tho many
new coiffures which havo been de
signed for this season tho eurs will be
wholly or partly covered. Light fringes
over tho forehead, middle and side
parts, hair colled high or low, but al
ways waved, and little, short, full
curlB are in evidence everywhere. For
popularity the high coiffure promises
to be tho winner in the raco for favor.
Much depends upon the styles in
millinery which aro favored for spring.
For evening wear, and especially
where hats are removed, or not worn
at all, Miladl may wave aud curl and
coil and pile up her crowning glory to
her heart's content. Also her coiffure
ornament or evening head drcsB may
be as elaborate as any of which wo
have a history. Some of those design
ed for wear In Paris are said to be
twenty-eight Inches in height, which
is something over two foet, you know.
But the Parislenncs have a certain
grnce in carrying off extremes which
1b peculiar to them, their stock-in-trade
for setting styles before the rest of
tho world. They aro to bo followed at
a conservative distance.
