A real pussy-cat cloak big and full
comfy straight from the house of Drecoll
veloped In Its voluminous folds the wearer is al
most lost. Only here eyes peep out from above
the bushy black and white fox collar the mag
pie combination in furs being one of the new
notes of the Drecoll collection. Straight and, oh,
bo full, the mantle hangs from thla furry collar
almost to the bottom of the gown, and aways
flaring. And as if to accentuate this spring at
the bottom a wide band of the two furs is added.
The. tiny hands find their way out of two great
ruffs muff-like pieces of fur which extend al
most to the elbow of the big, baggy sleeves. An
intique Russian silver ornament fastens a cloak
which might have been fasl0oncd for the ex
Since Russia and France have joined against
the enemy, the French couturiers do not hesi
tate to glean their inspiration from the land of
snow and beautiful wome,n- From, the tip of
her turban to the toe of her boots this little lady
is Russian. The material is a blue cloth, the
military blue color, and the trimmings are black
astrachan, the fur the Russian, officers use to
edge their capes. This fur forms the collar, high
and flaring, but,, open in the - front, outlines
either side of the front of the tight little jacket
and edges the tiny flaring basque. But the new
est feature of the jacket is the :leg-o'-mutton
sleeve the real, old-time, full sleeve gathered
full into the normal armhole. The skirt, full
and trimmed with braid, displays the patent-.
leather Russian boots. -. ' , , .

makes one believe that this
quaint little Bklrt of coral pink taffeta must have
been cherished all these years In the hidden re
cesses of a chest belonging to an 1830 belle. Ai
least Weeks has copied almost to the last detail
the skirt of that period. There are slight modi
fications in the corsage, thoi'gh the flat shoulder
effect Is just as pronounced. And it is achieved
by a sash of black and silver brocade ribbon
which twines its 'way over one shoulder and ;
across the hip. Two ruffles of the taffeta out
fined in sable are laid flat over the other Bhoul-
der, the flare coming well below the top of thej
arm. A line of sable marks the bottom edge of '
the skirt, which is short enough to display the
turn of the ankle.

But. In fact. It la cloubtlesa whether

may be deprived, at the sumo time, of

HEAHT BROKEN R. B. IL
Just go on In your friendship for your
"big brother." Love frequently grows
from a loyal and congenial friendship.
Do not fear to show him the tender af
fection your assumed relationship Im

not win his love, neither cold self-consciousness
nor a forward declaration on
your part would succeed.

Do you trust this man? Or, after mar- '

other women? Perhaps If you were to

other than such as are clearly analogous
to our senses. Watch an anthill In the
bray hours and oboerve how orderly and
yet rapidly everything goes on. Even
when an ant seems to be wondering and
turning In a confused manner It Is not at
all certain that It la not perfectly guided
by sense Impressions In all lta movements.
If the senses by which they are guided
are all concentrated In the antennae then
that organ must surely be regarded as
one of the most marveloua that 'nature
