It long ago seemed ns though shoes could never be better and never be cheaper, but they are better now and cheaper now than they ever were before. The great every day favorite is our men’s and ladies’ shoe. It is as much a boon to the pocketbo’ok as it is to the feet. It won’t wear you out to wear it out. You don’t need to take care of it; it takes care of itself. It will give you solid com fort for the simple reason that a better shoe for knockabout pur poses has never been produced. If prices never appealed to you before, the price of this shoe will, fbr it costs only $2.50. It will look nicer and wear longer than any shoe on^earth.

Of course there are a few startling and “outre" things for those who demand them; but conserva tive women of quiet and refined taste can all be suited. There is the small! turban of fancy straw trimmed with velvet folds, which some women like so much for shopping and traveling; and close little capotes of fancy straws and chip. Strings are the color of the trimming, and full two inches wide. All kinds of buds and berries are more used than flowers. Hats have wide brims and low crowns, are bent and pinched into many shapes, and trimmed in front, at the side, or back, as is most becoming. The severe, but to some faces most coquetish, Empire poke comes in fine, colored chip, and is trimmed with velvet ribbon in severe lines, and erect ostrich feathers. —From “Review of Fashions,” in Demorest's Family Magazine for March.
