GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA.
AND AN ABSOLUTE CURE FOR OAhDRUfF
A saleswoman in one of the leading
shops advised an intending customer
the other day to wait a while for ber
gowns, as this was the ''between bay
and graEs" period.
The few Paris models that hare come
thus far are certainly not pretty.
Their meet noticeab'e feature is the
exceeding roughness of the cloth. One
model was in dark brown cheviot of the
coarsest sort, and was so heavy that the
ordinary slender woman would be borne
down by the unusual weight, especially
after a summer of such airy fabrics.
Another model was a thick red chev
iot, made over silk and chain-stitched
from the top to bottom of the skirt in
deep red silk. These stitchings run
horizontally to about the knpes, and
from there to the waist line perpedicu
Iarly. The effect is admirable.
The bodice of this costume was
stitched to match the skirt, and trim
med with deep jellow lace, heavy and
Another innovation is the plain
flounce, one, two. three and even four in
number, on the bottom of the skirt. Of
course, this adds still more to the weight
of the garment, but it is most becoming
to slender figures. The top flounce is
always trimmed, passementerie being a
The sleeves are larger and fuller than
ever from the elbow down. In these
heavy cheviots they are positively ugly.
I hare never seen a season open with
so much embroidery. It is shown on
all the shirt waists in the best houses,
and is certain to become a rage.
Many of these blouses are in French
flannel and show the cat-o'-nine-tails
pattern in wbite and gold. The work is
exquisitely done acd quite expensive.
It seems a bit odd to look at and tals
of these heavy articles while the fum
mer is practically still with us, but there
is no denjing the fact that the fore

Mrs. John Jacob Astor wears an un
usually pretty taffeta, which is mo3t be

As predicted early in the spring,
plumes are seen on all the fashionable
afternoon and evening bats.
As the season closes, thee delicate
plumes appear straightened out some

dampness; but they are pretty even
Miss Gwendolyn Burden wears a set
back hat of medium size wound round

Glove-fitting skirts, with an applied
flounce, are being worn.
Ethel Barrymore has one of these in
dark blue, and another actress of lesser
fame disports a white flannel with ex
aggerated Eton, trimmed in big white
pearl buttons. With this she wears a
perfectly huge eIlow bat trimmed with
six large full-blown pink roses, complet
ing a most striking costume.
There is a new, loose-fitting, forty-
two inch taffeta coat, trimmed with
stitching in some contrasting color and
made with three shoulder capes and a
bolero jtcket effect. The front has
long tabs of the taffeta, stitched all over.
Many of the new coats are of this
length. This may be a cause for re
joicing among the slender women, but
alas for those of generous proportions!
Nothing is funnier than a short, stout
woman in a forty-two inch sealskin.
To have the fur collar attached to the
wrap bids fair to be the proper thing.
These collars, as seen in the advance
garments, are very wide and high stand
ing. The dressy wraps are not in the least
like those of last season, but the Raglan

As the season advances there will be
much more to be said on the subject of
coa'.s and wraps of all kinds.
