DRESSY AFTERNOON COAT PARTAKES
OF FLARE OF SKIRT WITH POCKETS
Evening Wraps Are of Velvet, Rich Brocade and Soft Satin Nocturne in Wonderful Shades and Are Extremely
Voluminous in Actual Amount of Fabric Great-Grandfather's Overcoat ' Modernized.
11 1 1 111 H',
THERE is a dressy sort of coat for
wear with elaborate afternoon
frocks. The material is a new
velour de laine and the color a lovely
shade of rose with which the beaver
fur trimmin? harmonizes pleasingly.
The coat pockets, placed high, on the
waist rather than on the skirt of the
garment, are a notable detail. Below
these pockets occur most of the full
ness of the skirt portion, and waist
and skirt are joined simply by a cord
ed piping. The rich coat is a tritle
shorter than the frock of pussy willow
silk which reveals dainty dancing boots
with buttoned tops.
Though the new evening coats of
velvet, rich brocade and soft satin
nocturne in wonderful shades are ex
tremely voluminous In actual amount
of fabric, the fabric is managed with
such skill and art that the long, grace
ful lines tlo not emphasize the amount
of material used. Here is a modeia
theater wrap of jade colored velvet,
with curiously draped sleeves from
which depend huge silver tassels. The
wrap is lined with white goldenrod
satin and has a collar of silver fox.
The modern girl's great-grandfather I
wore a coat much like the smart mod
els she affects this Autumn. He called
It a "greatcoat," and if he lived out
in the country, likelv he wore, also a

smart collar is revived from the Gir
ondist period. The little cap of beaver
felt is trimmed only with a buckle and
narrow grosgrain ribbon.

BT RAMOND E. INGALLS. D. X. S.
(First Lieutenant, Denial Surgeon, U. S. A.)
THE unfortunate person who is
awakened during the small hours
of a cold and frosty morning with
WHEN Taris evolved the new coat
styles for Autumn she had to
keep one fact in mind: that
American women simply will not ac
cept fashions that make them clumsy
of figure Americans particularly ob
ject to modes that lend bulk over the
hips. This they will submit to in
dainty dance frocks of picturesque
character when bouffancy is achieved
with diaphanous fabric as witness the
furore over dance frocks with quanti
ties of tulle lotjped up over "winds'" of
crinoline but coats that distend them
selves over the hips, American maids
and matrons abjure. So Paris, who is
relying tnese days on the business of
patrons across the water, had to keep
American prejudices in mind and the
new coats, cut from yards and yards
of material, are still expressive of
slenderness and svelte lines.
The first cold of October brought out
smart Winter coats in great number.
Kvery woman who took a train out of
the Grand Central station or the big
Thirty-third-street terminus for the
second October week-end. carried over
her arm- or allowed maid or railroad
porter to carry a stunning new coat
tor motor or other wear in the coun
try. These coats were an interesting
study U in themselves, quite aside
front charming new Fall hats. ' fur-
trimmed Fall suits and the very latest
thing in buttoned footwear.
There were coats of mixed worsted
stuff sturdy affairs, belted, be-pock-eted
and be-buttoned; "there were
dainty coats of velour and corduroy,
fur-trimmed. Of this sort was a model
which accompanied a pretty girl
dressed in a short-skirted, belted tail
l'iur of beige gabardine, touched with
beaver at th j collar. Her hat was a
tricorne of pressed beaver felt veiled
with a new taupe, lattice mesh, veiling,
and her buttoned boots had uppers of
beige cloth. But the coat was the no
table item of her pet-up. It was of
fawn-colored orduroy with a broad
welted weave and the lining was of
fawn-colored pussy willow taffeta.
Narrow strips of the corduroy cut
cross-wise of the material and flanked
by narrow strips of moleskin, bordered
the cuffs and ran all the way down
the front. The ccat collar was of mole
skin and was almost ' the size and
height of a baby's hat box. Undoubted
ly it rose about its wearer's ears when
the coat was donned.
A sensation of the openings in Paris
was the leather coat of Paquin. This
garment, which fell between knee and
the hip in full ripples, had stitched slot
seams that ran clear up into the collar,
giving the coat a ' tapering effect- at
the shoulder and a wide flare in the
skirt. At the lower edge was a band
of dark fur. Cuffs and collar were of
fur also, and on the front was an amaz
ing arrangement of braid loops and
buttons in military effect.
Saury Swine Kept.
But this is the extreme style the
top notch of fashion's originality in
coatwear for the season. Coats, as a
rule, are charming and wearable, and
they are youthful, too, with Uieir saucy
swine and flare above the skirt. A
few coats cover the entire frock, but a
smarter kind is given when the coat
fal's a little below the knees and be
low it the short skirt reveals the but
toned walking boot. The Russian ten
dency is strong in all the new coats, or
in seven-eighths of them at least. This
tendency is shown in the side-closing,
in the belt and in the full-skirted,
close-waisted outline the Cossack sil
houette. Yokes are much used to give
the desirable flat line at the front, the
fullness.' if any, coming below this flat
yoke. Collars, of course, are enormous;
they resemble young muffs, but they
have a smartness of their own, now
that t"ie eye has become used to them.
Most of these big moffler collars are
made m that they may be turned down,
away from the throat if desired.

In the first place, why is a tootnacne.'
There are several brands. The com
mon, garden variety, technically known
as pulpitis or acute pulpitis, is the un
sparing type that mostly interests us.
or rather disinterests us, especially
near the termination of a pleasant
dream. As the name implies, pulpitis
s an inflammation of the pulp, or
nerve." as this much-despised little
appendage is generally incorrectly des-
gnated. The term only partially covers
the contents of the root canals. Add
the blood vessels, connecting tissue, et
cetera, and we have the dental pulp.
It is because'the pulp is encased within
the hard dental or bony walls of the
tooth, with no room for expansion when
nf lamed, that the tooth aches. the
pesky little nerve fibers of the pulp are
consequently impinged on, and they
quickly make their troubles known by
telegraphing it through the main trunk
line to the brain. The same amount of
inflammation on the hand, for instance,
would scarcely be noticed, as far as
pain is concerned.
Irritation Is Cause.
This leads us to the question of in
flammation. What is.it? The con
dition is simply diagnosed by the omni
present symptom of heat, pain, red-
and swelling. The sufferer will
argue that they are all there plus a
ittle more. But we cannot have in
flammation without irritation, a maxim
applying in dentistry as well as medi
cine. All pathological or diseased con
ditions may be traced tack to a cause
medical science is baffled in some
cases. However, the cause of our pres
ent trouble is this: The micro-organisms
or germs of decay have disinte
grated a goodly portion of the crown
of the tooth, and have gradually worked
their way, or rather multiplied them
selves, in through the microscopic
tubules of the dentine to the pulp. This,
then, is the irritant. Obviously, the
pulp does not take kindly to the intrusion.
Nature provides two different means
of protecting the dental pulp a deposit
of secondary dentine within the pulp
chamber and root canals as decay ad
vances; and an increased amount of
blood, especially the white blood cor
puscles to destroy or carry off the
micro-organisms of infection. Neither
stops the process of decay; they only
stave off the inevitable more serious
Hot Water Increases Pain.
All four of the symptoms of inflam
mation given are due either directly
or indirectly to the phenomena of
hyperemia that is. to an increased
amount of blood to the infected area.
The hot-water bag at the cheek, there
fore, only acts as an added stimulus
intensifying the pain by causing still
more blood to rush to the part.
Perhaps the one afflicted with the
midnight toothache well remembers
that in walking the floor some relief
was afforded. This is due to the less
amount of blood in the head when in
the upright instead of the prone po
sition. as when one is lying in bed.
What Is needed is some counter irri
tant to draw the blood to a part re
mots from the affected area, or an al
leviation of the pain by direct medical
application. If the water bag must be
used, fill it with cold water, although
little relief may be expected from this

is to remove all debris possible from

Next, it is dried with pellets of ab

medicine by placing a roll or twist o
cotton about the size of the index

this preparation is essential in order
to be sure that the drug reaches and is
effective on the inflamed tissue. Debris
in the cavity will only act as a hinder
lng barrier to prevent the action of the
drug, while the saliva dilutes it. A
number of the essential oils, as oil o
cloves and oil of wintergreen, usually
win allay tne pain. Eugenol, an aro
matic phenol, procured from oil of
cloves and other essential oils, is bet
ter. A still more effective remedy, em
ployed by most dentists, is the prepara
tion of Dr. G. V. Black, one of the lead

The ingredients and proportions are
Oil of cassia, 1 part; phenol crystals, 2
parts; oil of wintergreen, 3 parts.
A small pellet of cotton about the
size of a pinhead is saturated with the
preparation and placed in the achin
tooth cavity. The balance of the cavity
is filled lightly with more cotton. Too
much of the medicine applied would
cause it to run out on the gums and
tongue. It acts as a cautery where it
touches, leaving annoying burns.

It is never advisable to take drugs
internally for dental troubles if local
means will control the pain. In cas
this should fail, eight grains of asperln

is sold without prescription at all drug,
