ters. A school scene is first ushered in, and
then the hero. Emerson Courtwrtght. rives
the little lecture on singing to Olive

tone to high C without moving tha aoft

The central not of the novel, how
ever, is not singing but the doctrine enun
ciated by Rev. Mr. Courtwright that the
world needs the democracy of Jesus, that
the latter meant to found an earthly king
dom, and that if Jesus' precepts were
followed today they would ameliorate
all social conditions. Mr. Cartwrtght was
pastor of the First Church of Lattl
- more and had by his socialistic altruistic
preaching a tempestuous ministry. His
wife divorces him, and he Is married to
Olive by a farmer justice of the peace
who says: "Glad to meet yeh, ladles
an' gentlemen. An' now, If yeh'H pleas
fetch the parties before me as soon as
ye kin. I'd like to git back to my per

Fashions for the Men
AUTUMN and "Winter ordinarily
bring to the fore the more sober
colors in men's dress, but the pres
ent season is an exception. Not only in
clothing, but in the accessories, shirts,
eravfcts and linen, the trend ts markedly
toward more color, says the New Tork
Brown predominates for business and
ordinary wear brown in natural Autumn
tone, rich and mellow, warm and cheer
ful and often In wonderfully rich combi
nations. Greens and olives are also be
ing worn by men who seek to dress dif
ferently from -Aie general mass.
Blues and gTays, too, are worn, but in
combination with stripes and checks Of
different colors or tones of the same color.
Thus the brown stripes are overlaid on
blue fabrics and green or brown on gray
and two tones of gray or two of blue are
used tog-ether, one for the body, the other
for the pattern.
Stripes are seen everywhere, varying
from hairlines to the broad and bold, and
a few checks are also seen.
Soft unfinished worsteds are favorites
for coats and trousers, but cheviots are
undoubtedly coming In rapidly and many
well-dressed men are wearing them, prob
ably because they surpass all other ma
terials for wearing qualities, hold their
shape better and crease loss.
For Fall and Winter overcoats brown, of
course, predominates as In suits. Plain
weaves and herringbone patterns are fa
vored and many of the patterns ordinarily
used Tor suits are being made into over
coats for Fall.
The Newmarket or paletot, the) favorite
Fall overcoat, is made in more lively pat
terns and colors than heretofore, especi
ally in cheviots.
The changes In men's fsshlons. moving
forward in their cycle, have brought again
to the fore the moderate garments which
suit the average man. The sack coat, the
almost universal business garment of the
American man, can be beat described by
the expression common sense.
The sense Is displayed in the lack of
striving for effect and the moderate lines
of the garment. The coat reaching almost
to the knee has gone the way of all fads;
the exaggerated shoulder, built up out of
all proportion, has disappeared and fash
Ion dictates moderation in all directions.
The shoulders are of natural width and
by the-.-t of the tailor show a square
effect without padding. The length is
Just Tight, neither long nor short.
Fashionable Coat Loose. .
The distinguishing mark of tha fashion
able coats for Fall and Winter Is loose
ness. In England, as is well known, th
master's clothes are loose and baggy, th
man's tight. In America, while few well
dressed men would affect the baggy Eng
lish clothes, the looseness has been bor
rowed and all the best garments for the
season are roomy and comfortable, such
as the American business man demands.
The coats are cut from two to four
inches larger over the chest than the act
ual breast measure, and the rest of the
garment In proportion. The sack coat Is
slightly ehaped at the back and sides and
hangs straight from the shoulders, the
surplus material draped in the proper
place by the art of the tailor. ,
The exaggeration varies with the
type of man. tha tall, slender figure

model. It Is cut with long- peaked
lapels, and th opening is made to ex

The waistcoat should have an equal
opening if of the same material as the
coat, but Is worn slightly higher when
of fancy material, to show in the open
ing above the coat. The front edges
are straight, with only a slight cut
away below the lower button and with
slightly rounded corners.
The four-button eack coat is entirely
a matter of personal taste. If It is
worn the buttons are nearer together
than in the three-button coat. '
The double-breasted sack coat will
be vorn by the athletic individuals ,
who forego a topcoat. It does not set 1
well under an overcoat. Is clumsy and
cumbersome, and is losing Its vogue '
for city wear.

the loose, comfortable look that marks
the season's styles. They are made
from the prevailing colors, or black.
The black coat, if it follows the morn
ing coat model, is flat braided on the
front edges, collar and lapels.
Vogue of the Fancy Waistcoat.
The vogue of the fancy waistcoat
still continues unabated. Its use gives
that note of color for which men seem
to be striving, and for business makes
attractive a costume otherwise neu
tral. In colors and patterns there is diffi
culty In choosing, the variety for
choice being practically unlimited.
Flannel is the favorite material, stripes
or small figures the preferred pat
terns. As In skirts and cravats, a
man's taste must govern; there Is no
hard-and-fast rule to follow.
Fancy waistcoats are either single or
double breasted, opening just high
enough to show when the coat is but
toned. The single breasted have a
notched collar, close with five buttons,
and the points below the bottom but
ton are 3V4 Inches long.
The double breasted are cut to show
points in front as do the single breast

pair one Inch further apart than the
If a waistcoat of the same material
as the coat to worn. It has a collar and
lapels to match those of the coat, and
closes with flv buttons.
Notwithstanding efforts to bring back
into favor trousers of different ma
terial from the coat, men who follow
the fashion continue to wear coat and
trousers of the same cloth and pat
tern. The greater wear of the trousers
to provided for by buying extra trous
ers. Trousers fbr Fall and Winter are cut
closer In the leg than has been the
custom, but are easy over the seat.
They are short enough to hsng
straight and avoid the break over the
ankle, but are finished at the bottom
without a cuff.
The business overcoat for Autumn and
Winter Is the single breasted fly front
Chesterfield, popular for so many years
as a general utility coat, or the paletot,
a skirt coat cut on frock lines. While
It Is true that the short overcoat, the
paletot and the Chesterfield will all be
worn, each of them has its definite place,
as sharply defined as the custom for tha
dress coat or the double-breasted frock.
The covert coat Is used by well-dresjed
men solely as a coat for riding or driv
ing. Its shortness and lack of tails fit It
admirably for Its place on the back of a
horse, or getting Into or out of a dog
The paletot is being worn for Autumn
by well-dressed men. Its use requires all
the other parts of the costume to be In
harmony with It. It makes up well In
tha lighter or medium weights of wool
ens, but Is difficult to tailor in heavy
It is long, falling to the middle of th
calf and Is close fitting tn the back In
the usual frock style. The breast la ex

the skirts have a decided flare from the
waist over the hips. It may be single or
double-breasted as preferred, and is fin
ished with buttons made from the same
material as the coat, or, it single breast
ed, with a fly front
There are many men who, from their
physical conformation, cannot wear a
Newmarket with distinction, and for
these the Chesterfield Is produced. The
correct sack or Chesterfield top coat is
exceedingly roomy and loose. It is not
at all body fitting and falls straight from
the shoulders, both front and back, in
what Is known as the box back style.
It reaches to about two Inches below
the knee, and has a long slit In the cen
ter seam of the back. The coat closes
with a fly covering three buttons. The
Autumn Chesterfield has a collar of the
same material as the body of the cost,
while th Winter weights, darker in color
and more conservative as to pattern, are
finished with a velvet collar.
Following closely the colors in a-ar-
ments the accessories shirts, ties, linen
display more color, not the lighter
snaaes nut tne brighter and warmer
shades of the darker colors.
