They are, in that respect, like pianos or precious stones objects which are bought for a life-time, life-time, life-time, not merely to gratify a passing passing fancy. " They are less subject to changes of fashion than any other article of dress. Hence it behooves the intending purchaser of furs to spend both time and care la their selection, and to convince herself of their worthiness and lasting qualities. Add to this the natural inclination of the purchaser to pay, out of a given price, as little as possible for name and as much as necessary for quality, and you have the conditions which should govern the purchase of furs. Wanamaker's fulfills these conditions to t T..: The wintry twbtgc in the weather of late lends peculiar pertinence to these samaras, 'And the following hints of our stock aerre to illustrate - what is reedy here feHdiyt ...

Tburta, avBM. 1 :a: xv Formerly ' Stewart; a Co. T HE hostess whb takes a oride in havine exquisite table settings, and fine linens for the guest s chamber is id our mind in making to-day's to-day's to-day's elaborate display of Fine Linens. Thirteen different countries have contributed 'to the Wanamaker collection Ireland, Scotland, England, France, Belgium, Germany, Saxony, Austria, Bohemia, Russia, Italy, Japan, Mexico. You propably know something of our splendid stocks of staple linens ; you know that nothing but pure flax is ever admitted here, at any price ; but you could not know what a magnificent collection of fine and extraordinary Linens is here, for we have never taken the pains to rightly show, them before. In fact our Linen Chief, himself, hadn't realized what a splendid gathering he had brought together, until he got the opportunity to see them arrayed side by side. Some of these pieces were planned for a year ago ; some two years ago how tedious and slow is the intricate beauty-work beauty-work beauty-work of some of these art-pieces art-pieces art-pieces I From widely divergent sources they have come. Now all are ready for inspection. A collection in scopi, in variety, in artistic merit and beauty, in originality and newness of effect, such as has probably n ;ver been exhibited before in New York City. The windows of the Broadway front hold part of the showing; cases along the Main Aisle and Rotunda continue it, and the Linen Store is especially decorated for the occasion. There is a linen,! edspread at $125 that is exquisitely drawn in several various stitches, in an elaborate design that surrounds the center; then the embroidering adds a sump nous effect It is a royal wedding gift. Another at $100. Many others for less. There are lifien t heets with the tops beautifully drawn, hemstitched and embroidered, with pillow shams to match ; also cases for the third pillow, which adds so muc h effect as well as comfort to the bed. The fine German work mingles with the heavier, but not less beautiful, Irish em-broidery. em-broidery. em-broidery. An elaborate v iriety of these most elegant bed linens. Tbe Towels have been gathered lavishly. Leave out the staple sorts on which this store is so weQ known; and look to-day to-day to-day at the fine towels only. Beginning with the plain but fine and lustrous towels at a dollar each, notice the prodigal variety of patterns; up through the dainty to the elaborate embroiderings in color. Turning to the Table Linens here is napery to give regal setting to the table of a king. There are fine white lustrous cloths edged with Renaissance lace the new st departure in table beauty. Some are worked with wide Renaissance lace that runs deep into the cloth. Exquisite 1 There are scores of fine cloths, -onhemmed. -onhemmed. Fine as linen threads can be spun ; tight as the looms can weave them ; with figuring lustrous as polished silver, on a grotu id of satin damask. And there is magnificent variety in the designs. The new and striking effects that were made especially for Wanamaker's not to pe found elsewhere. Napkins follow he table cloths same patterns; same profusion. Lunch Cloths at d Breakfast Cloths show some elaborate color effects. Broche borders, and some aUover effects. Russian and Hungarian embroidery. Then the stores of lace-trimmed lace-trimmed lace-trimmed effects. The scarfs, the covers, the doilies the story would make a book, and this mere synopsis must end here. This exhibition is momentous because it offers linens that are radically new in effect, to those tasteful and ambitious housekeepers who are anxious to give new beauty to their tables, sideboards, beds and bedroom furnishings. It is a new and broadened view of the magnificent Linen Store that holds such a preadth of practical and beautiful linens in such a small space at the Fourth avenue side of the store.
