The August Sale of Undermuslins Begins Tomorrow
Again Tomorrow a Most Impressively Lovely Presentation of
The Newest Apparel for Fall
Already MELER & FRANK'S displays of new
Fall apparel have reached such a stage as other
stores will achieve only much later in the season
if at all. That is why women who are desirous of
seeing and purchasing the new things whilst they
are yet in the first flush of their newness should
come to MEIER & FRANK'S to make selections.
We have ready for those who come tomorrow new
Fall dresses, suits and coats in fine array. We
call to your special attention these
New Fall Frocks
featuring many handsome new models in satin, wool Jer
sey and serge.
The most popular satin frocks are shown in black with
touches of embroidery in pretty bright colors! Many have
wide sashes trimmed with fringe.
The coat dress is a great favorite with the fashionable
women of today. We have many new and decidedly dif
ferent models in serge, tricotine and duvetyn. Navy
leads in popularity.
One of the informal dinner dresses so eagerly sought is
of black satin in straight-line effect with over-drape of
Chantilly lace. Others of French gray Georgette with em
broidery in self color and dark brown silk tricolette with
dull gold embroidery.
The consensus of oninion is that Jersey frocks will be very popular for Fall wear.

New Fall Suits Unequaled Displays
Nothing could be more smart than the suit which is
simple enough to be practical for morning wear, yet
handsome enough to be suitable for more formal or
dressy wear. We have a great stock of just such
suits. Made of duvetyn, velour de lame, tricotine,
broadcloth, Foiret twill and serge. All the most wanted
colors. Decidedly chic are the new fur vests. One
smart model has collar of Hudson seal, which may be
worn open or closed over the vestee. Many are
trimmed with hand cording and numerous buttons.
Moderately priced, quality considered, $35 to $85.
