What If the Spangle Sewers Strike
New Tork. Nov. 7. Now that life is
jut one strike after another followers
f Fashion are doing pretty well to
keep clothed sufficiently to stay in
. the procession at all without shifting
attire to fit the modes of the moment.
Strikes of longshoremen, miners, and
milkmen sink in to merest insignifi
cance when ... such truly appalling
trikea are on like those of the span
gle sewers, garment fitters or mil
liners, male and -female.
A spangle sewers' strike would be
particularly harrowing lust at the
moment since all the newest evening
creations seem to consist merely of a
shining spangle 'cuirass or stomacher
held in suspense ty a strand of beads
over each shoulder and down to the
fcelt in back. The skirts are mere
billows of airy tulle with particular
emphasis and billows laid on the hips.
All black dance frocks on this order
developed in Jet and black tulle are
the most popular of the lot but vivid
creations .in eerise, lade, gold and
silver are guaranteed to turn our ball
rooms into replicas of scenes from
S&eigfeld'a Follies- at its "best.
. These newest tulle and spangle
evening creations are making good on
th backless rumors we had from

to be a little hoarse yourself ere the

Naturally these backless gowns cry

indeed she seems to be making a col

Spanish mantillas in white or black
are very much used as scarves and
the smaller gayly embroidered Spanish

puffed chiffon, lest they scratch a bit,
are most opuleut looking, banded with
rich fur and entire alj-over spangled

of your gown are radiant beyond
words. ' .
Feather fans are more , enormous
than ever this season and make most
effective notes of color against hmcR
or light frocks when they are of some
vivid and hectic shade themselves.
The sombre plumes of the black
feather fan are of course stunning
with any color. There is a strong
suspicion however that a new use for
the fan will be evolved this winter
Instead of wielding them coquettishly
or languorously in front to create a

the eye muscles from A to Z and are completely
equipped to do this special line of work. The exter

any of the refractive errors, and the longer the de
