1I06 O Street:
Lady Modish on Widow's Weeds.
One of my moat intimate friends re
cently lost ber huband, and I have had
the privilege of inspecting her elaborate
It ib wonderful bow beautiful these
eombre garments can be made, and how
becoming they are to most women.
My friend's outfit consists of a num
ber of gowrs of various materials, a
dozen or more hatB and bonnets, many
boxes of dull suede gloves and kerchiefs,
Biz elegant silk petticoats, most of them
with band embroidered trimmings,
scores of pretty bodices and blouses,
besides many other charming things.
The gown I like best in all the array is
a Princesse, made of fine black cork
screw cloth, much like that which is
used for men's suits, only finer in qual
ity. The advantage of this material is
that it can never pull cr stretch out of
shape, and therefore always looks well.
The lines of this gown are simply per
fection. A lovely girdle of heavy crep9
is let in at the waist, pointed back and
front, above and below the waist line, to
the depth of perhaps four or five inches.
The crepe is laid in tiny folds, and forms
the chief garniture for the entire cos
tume. Strips of it are placed at intervals
about the bottom of the gown, and
these are fastened at each end with
small cloth-covered buttons, three in a
The sleeve 6hows fine clusters of
tucks (so fine as to look almost like lit
tle cordings) and ss finished at the wrist
with a fold of the crepe tightly but
toned. It is quite full from the elbow
Another deep point of the crepe trims
the bodice at the throat, the bottom of
this point almost touching the top of
the one at the waist The effect in
charming, and.ss it was made by an ex
cellent tailor, the fit is all that could be
desired. The collar was trimmed with
the small buttons in clusters, and fitted
Bnugly under the back hair.
None of her gowns showed the pointed
collars, but several showed the tendency
toward the Princesse effects.
One especially attractive was of Ve
netian cloth, with a wonderful foot flare
to the Princesse skirt. This was effect
ed by a flounce much tucked, and
joined to the mam skirt by wide hem
A hemstitched skirt of dull black taf
feta was worn with th'iB, and a small,
The newest skirt of all in this ward
robe was tight fitting to the knees and
from there full spreading.
The material for this was the finest
ladies' cloth. There were eight banda
of heavy stitched taffeta extending from
the waist line to the knee in front, and
holding the skirt tight about the figure.
From here it flared, and the back, which
was full, showed a generous train,
though not enough to be inconvenient.
An Empite coat went with thie, and,
while I do not like this fashion, it is
surely heralded, and will no doubt be all
the rage before the season is ended.
This coat was not long in front, but
had the tabs in the back -much widened
and garnished with taffeta bands to
match the skirt. The sleeves were plain,
with the regulation Empire cuff, well
pointed, turned back from the hand.
My friend has bIbo in this collection a
forty-two inch coat which is a dream. I
never imagined a coat of this length
could possibly be becoming, or in any
way satisfactory, but this was not only
nxtremely stylish, but very becoming as
Heavy black lace is joined right into
the cloth at the bottom to a depth of

while the fronts are fulled onto th ie
and fastened with lace tabs end

of the wrap.
Another stunning wrap was less an
half as long as this, but more elab ,ite.
It showed a vest embroidered bj hn d

Another headdress was a hat, a little
larger than a toque, made entirely of
folds and pleatings of dull Bilk. There
were in fact two of these hats, one
edged with crepe and one not. They

Black-and-white mourning, as shown
in the leading shops, is almost eleborate
this fall, and straps and tcckings seem
to be the keynote. Hemstitching, too,
with white beneath it, is about as popu
lar as ever.
One bodice had graduated bands of
black-and-white striped Bilk from shoul
der to waist. The skirt was composed
of three wide folds, the top one snug
fitting and that at the bottom very wide.
A black taffeta hat went with this cos
tume, and it had white felt crescents
appliqued on the flat top.
Medallions of velvet or cloth on silk
are still popular and are seen on man
of the new evening gowns.

A Great Newspaper .
The Sunday edition of the St. Louis
Republic ia a marvel of modern news
paper enterprise. The organization of
its newB service is world-wide, complete
in every department; in fact, superior to
that of any other newspaper.
The magazine section ia illustrated in
daintily tinted colors and splendid half
tone pictures. This section contains
more high-class literary matter than
any of the monthly magazines. The
fashions illustrated in natural colors are
especially valuable to the ladies.
