the front and at tha back. By tha
way, the length ot the sleeve Is a

decide to suit yourself your arm

bell-shaped elbow sleeves: tha
three-quarter, and rather' mora
closely fitting variety, ' and again
mltten llke covering, which art -continued
almost to tha knuckles,
are each and all to be represented
snd favored. (
Aa to tha skirts they are very
tight round the hips and not ap
preciably fuller about the feet,
though they are made loose and
quite different sometimes by the ad
dition ot little pleating or rows
of flouncing, this being a scheme
which Is generally adopted when
the material Is taffeta. ' Tunics are
not much seen, but Instead there
are some slightly bouffant drsp-;
erles, which by being caught In .
about the knees exaggerate the
scantiness of the plain underskirt
In a wsy which msy be eye-arresting,
but is certainly not at
tractive. Any definitely pannler-Uke
effecta are not likely to be favored,
or, at any rata worn: la tact, even
those who are responsible for their
introduction, never, from the be
ginning, put much faith In them.
But It seems that, nt th beginning
ot each sesson now, there must be
a "freak fashion hobble, or
harem, or pannlered skirt to cre
ate discussion and dissension, snd
to give us sll something to think
about and talk about at an other
wise somewhat dull time ot the
year of dress.
For as a matter of tact and
faahlon the worship ot "la Ugne"
Is as great as ever, and all pos
sible means are to be taken to pre
serve In all It loveliness that nat
ural and graceful contour which
just lately has lent appropriateness
to that oft misquoted deacrtpUon
of "the female form divine." And,
truly. It would be a thousand pities.
If, Just when after so long a .
struggle we had attained to some
thing like perfection ot contour we
should be compelled to hide our
light and loveliness nader th
bushel of panniers! 8o any radical
change being unwelcome to every-
v one it will. If It Is to be accepted
at all, be mads so gradually that
