A real pussy-cat cloak big and full and
comfy straight from the house of Drecoll. En
veloped in Us 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 this furry collar
almost to the bottom of the gown, and aways
tlaring. 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
iihich might have been faslfioncd for the ex
Empress Eugenie.
'- 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 women- 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
fend 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. ' ,
Ruffle upon
billowy fulness,
ruffle, each rippling forth In
makes one believe that this
quaint little skirt of coral pink taffeta must have
been cherished all these years In the hidden re
cesses of a chest belonging to an 1830 belle. Al
least Weeks has copied almost to the last detail
the skirt of that period. There are slight modi
fications in the corsage, though the flat shoulder
effect is just as pronounced. And it is achieved
by a saBh 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 shoul-
der, the flare coming well below the top of the
arm. A line of sable marks the bottom edge of
the skirt, which is short enough to display the
turn of the ankle.

When we mention the five recocnlied

apt to think that we have covered the
field of aenaation, and that other animals
must rely upon aimllcr meana of com

But, in fact, It la iloubtleaa whether
we ouraelvea are aware of all the sense
that we really poaea, while It la certain

to have almost maKical powers. ' This Is

of its antennae, although it continues to

once ot both sight and hearing, and per
haps even of the venae of touch, and It
may be deprived, at the earne time, of
other sense ot which we know nothing-.
lu fact, the ant nna, whether used as
a meana to capture Invisible elactrio

employed by the Insect to give It all

the Insects and their relatlvea. Who

and we grew up to regard him aa one
of the family, lie In return calls me his l
llttio sister.
Now, after being with him so long, I
find that I am not Indifferent to him,
but love him very much, of which he Is
not aware. 1 would not for all the world
let hlin know that I love him.
Whenever I hear thnt he is coming tip
to the house 1 purooxely go away to try
to forget him, but find that It Is Impossi
ble. He haa been up several tlmea. and
after finding me out inquired of my
mother where hla aimer was.
Now, Mlaa Fairfax, please advise me
what to do. No one know of my love
for him. 1-3 very one In the houae regard

Juat go on In your friendship for your
"big brother." Love frequently grows
from a loyal and congenial frtendahlp.
Do not fear to ahow him the tender af
fection your aasumed relationship Im
plies. If sweetneaa and womanllneaa do
not win his love, neither cold aelf-con-olouaneaa
nor a forward declaration on
your part would succeed.

Do you truat this man? Or, after mar
riage, would you be ever nagtcing hlin
an accusing Mm of flirtations with
other women? Perhaps If you were to

other than auch a are clearly analogous
to our senses. Watch an anthill In the
bi sy hours and obnerve how orderly and
yet rapidly everything goes on. Even
when an ant seem to be wondering and
turning in a confused manner It la not at
all certain that it Is not perfectly guided
by sense impressions in all it movements.
If the aenaea by which they are guided
are all concentrated In the antennae then
