place and flowers," the other minor de
tails, such as personal adornment, be

better variety or more wonderful col

beyond the portals of the doorways of
the florist's shop, suggesting restful
country lanes and farms in the early
morning, which brings us to the full
realization that the Lenten period is

Eccentric Novelties for
JLarge Purse, or Handbag combined with KhakUKool
A very wonderful KhaM-Kool Skirt is of the nat
ural linen color, striped with a chain of green and
gold ; a prettily styled bag of the same material is
attached to the belt, and hangs as a pocket over!
the right hip. The stripe of the material forms a
belt and falls in sash effect over the left hip, the
ends being finished with green silk tassels. This
is priced at $32.50.
Thi3 is a striking garment, to be worn either as
' a coat or a dress. It is designed in fine blue serge,
gracefully hanging in box pleats from the yoke,
and buttoned from neck to hem with gray pearl
buttons; a gray collar finishes the neck; novel
pockets and stitching are used in trimming. This
sells at $35.00.
Brilliant Suit of Pongee
and Japanese Cretonne--
A suit that has caused more comment than any
thing we have received this season. It has a -three-quarter
length coat of the natural-colored
pongee, deeply edged with bright Oriental-colored .
cretonne; a large collar, cuffs and sash of the
same. The skirt is entirely of the cretonne. This
is priced at $48.50.
We are safe in saying these are some of the most out-of-the-ordinary things to be found
in the city. But we are also showing many charming things in the more staple
styles: Suits, Coats, Dresses, Skirts, Waists, Millinery, etc. Really very moderately
priced and designed to please all tastes.
