The cold ware that appeared upon the
scene last week produced an exceeding
ly interesting crop of long, warm coats

Fashion's gracious approval, there was
a decided preference evident for what is
known in the sartorial vernacular as the
In outline, however, there was no ap
parent deviation as every coat you saw
was cut with a sacque back and long,
loose lines in front.

I am afraid to say how much!
Moufflon is an old-fashioned fur long
out of favor, that appears to have been
given a fresh lease of life lately. It is
certainly delightfully warm and very
light in weight always a desirable com
bination. The Hon'ble Mrs. Eaton who

her sfster to Alfred Vanderbilt, and who
is supposed to be an authority on smart
dressing, is wearing a small cape of
-Mrs. Starr Miller, before she was
plBfiged into mourning, was wearing a
really alanning big cape of brown moufflon.
The gray moufflon is as pretty as the
brown, but it does tot seem to appeal
much to people as yet.
Apropos of departures in furs, a le
cent letter from Paris tells me that the
ultra-smart Parisiencee are carrying
ttoles of fur with their decolnttes gowns,
.and ,tbrow:tbem about their shoulders
on the slightest' provocation, with the
most picturesque effect
These itole are almost invariably
adorned on one end with a chou of tulle
that may be the same hue as the fur or
some contrasting color, as best pleases
This letter also speaks of the con
tinued vogue in Paris of felt hats, of
every conceivable color and shade.
Curiously enough, this fashion which
is an exceedingly pretty one has made
little or no impression over here, though
a number of smart models Wire import
ed by the various milliners.
Mrs. Perry is wearing the prettiest of
tbee felt bats, and why, in this land of
imitators, it has nut been copied again
and again is one of those sartorial mys
teries impossible to account for.

an exquisite blue, by the way. It is flit,
fits i-iose to the bead in the back, with a
slight downward dip that is the newest
and smartest touch in millinery art. It
is a bit off the face, and its only "trim

feathers, that begin gray and end blue.
They are placed directly across the
front in opposite direction so all the
gray is in the middle and the blue on
