There are many new features . which wo feel confident the public wlir appreciate and from which thoy will gain many valuable ideas, Poo- plo learn more from seeing than In any other way. They can learn more at a great Slate Fair for the time and money spent than In any other way.

It was answered by mothers of working girls who held that the overalls were more modest than the prevailing styles In womdn's dress to be seen onrtho streets of this college town. The mnlr employes of the factory rallied to the cause of tho "over- ill girls" and the general superintendent lssitod an open letter approving df overalls tor women. Finally Mayor Weaver nailed , tho special session of tho council. It was attended by women workers and society women. After much discussion the overalls were officially approved. Nothing Doing on This Job. A Virginia negro applied for a Job at tho Hopewell munitions plant. A clerk was RBklng questions and writing . down the negro's answers on a blank. "What's your name?" "Jake White, sun." "Whore do y'ou live, Jake?" "Valley o"Vlrglnla, sun." "Citizens of the United States?" "Yen, sun." "Over 21 ycnrB old?" "Dut'a what my ma say," "Where do you wish your remains sent?" Jake leaned over the desk, "How is dat, boss?" "Whore do you wish your remains sent?" "I don't want my romalns' sent no- whar. I'm flxln' to lake my remains wld me, and (otc 'em out o' dls place now." So Jake took his hat In hand and hit the big road.—Collier's Weekly. Rather Doubtful. There used to be a little restaurant In Washington tamed for Its southern brenkfnsts, where the chief waiter was an aged darky of beautiful manners and unshakable dignity, says the'Saturday Evening Post. One morning a rather severe op- pcarlng~elderly gentleman, with a snowy mustache and a keen eye, entered the establishment. Ho was a stranger, but tho venerable waiter, after a quick survey of the new patron, felt no doubt. He approached FASHIONS FOR FALL Simplicity and Smartness of Cut Mark Fall Styles for Women.

SPONSLEIl, Secretary, OVERALLS FOR WOMEN. A Proper Garment Decrees Bloomington, Ind., Authorities. Bloomlngtph, lud.—Overalls for women workers have beon officially approved by the city council which held n special BOSBIOU to pass upon tho-propriety of the use of theBO gar ments by women, This Is the home of a largo furnt turs factory." When the army called many men workers to the colors, women took thelf-places, The Btate'fac- tory law prohibits the loose clothing'' near machinery and overalls were adopted by„.,.wotnen workers. .Their appearance on the street going to and from their work caused a protest .to be filed with tho city council by the women lenders with a napkin over his arm and bowed low and politely. "Good tnornin', gin'ral," he Bald tentatively, In greeting. "I am not a general," snapped back the customor. '"Scuso me, admiral," cried the old negro; "what kin I brfng you, sah." "I am not an admiral, either." "Well, suh, I knowed you wuz up amongst de face cyords somewhars. Kin I have the pleasure of orderin' you some ham and waffles—bishop?" Lived Closest. A soldier In one of the cantonments below- the Mason and Dl^xon lino called up for examination was asked "Who is your nearest living relative?" "What do you moan, mister?" "1 mean your nearest living ktn- fp.lk." ^ "Wal, that's my aunt." "In case of death or accident who shall be notified?" "My mother," was the Immediate reply. •'But you told me a tew minutes ago that your sunt was tho nearest relative you have," protested the officer. I ; "You asked me who my nearest | klnfolk was, didn't you my Aitnt Liz. Sho lives just, two ihllos from hero. Mother Uvea five." She Had the Last Word That Time. "M-a," roared the so-called head Qf , tho house. "Wlsero in I he demnltlbn wearing of j bow-wows Is my hat? It's a shame "the way things disappear arouud tills I 611 house, I would juBt like , to know where that hat is." "So would I," replied friend wifs, very frigidly. "You didn't have it- pit' when you came homo last night," ' "Do your shopping early, in the season," urges Rcxford E. Smith, manager of the ready-to-wear department at tho Rorabaugh-Wlley Dry Goods Co. All of the better grades of woolen materials will bo more difficult to obtain as tbe season advances, and the present stock cannot bo repleced at as low prices or in the sanio quality. Broadcloth, ^silverlone, wool velour, and serge in navy and in good shades of brown and taupe will be the loading materials for suits this season •and they will be fur-trlnimed or strictly tailored models. Tho same , materials will bo used for coats with | the addition 6f plush, Hudson seal and a new material called moss spray. A few of the most exclusive models will be shown in satin, in both suits and coats, and these, also, ore fur trimmed. Long straight lines pro- domlnato for all garments this season. Capes will also be worn a great deal. The evening dross, as we have known it in previous years, will bo a minus quantity tills season, and the afternoon dress of georgette, satin, and as the season udvances, pan velvet and combinations of brocaded pan velvet and satin, will take its place almost entirely. These will be in tho darker tones, as inconsplcuous- ness and a tendency to sombreneBS, characterize the' fall and winter styles. Ulouses will be In suit shades more than ever, in the opinion of Mr. Smith. They are of the ever-favorite georgette, and crope-de-chine. Most of them are collarless, and havo round necks. Sensible Styles to Lead. "Sensible, practical, purposeful styles such" as the, ; women war work-: ers will welcome) are to lead the fashions for fall and winsir." SBYS Charles G. Rumple, department manager at tbe Pegues-Wrlght Dry Goods Co. The sultB are mostly very tailored models in gaberdine, poiret twill, wool velour, Bllver tone, and serge In navy and dark tones of tan and brown. One piece dresses in wool Jersey, serge, satin, and trlcol- etto (the new Jersey), .for which buttons and fringe are the favorite trimming will be very popular lor fall street wear. Blouses will be in high and low neck and collarless models of georgette and crope-do- chlno and will bo In the popular suit shades. Mr. Rumplo says that practically no evening dresses will bo worn this season. There will be no occasion for any elaborate dress, and there, is no demand for it, he says. In furs, beaver is almost unobtainable, while squirrel and lynx are advancing greatly In prlco. Early Shopping Advisable. Miss Susie Shawhan, manager of the ready-to-wear at tho Curtis Store says that owing to tho early buying done tills fall, early shopping is advisable. While the styles are less elaborate than heretofore, thoy. do not lack In smartness, as more attention is given to the tailoring. High shades aro not good, says Miss Shawhan; the darker tones being used almost entirely. The strictly tailored, standard my nearest i 8tyloa j e aa-ttils season," says A. Walj that s I ] tnlcll) pf tie Raich's Fashion Shop. "Materials aro hard to get and are advancing In prlco so much that it will bo almost Impossible to replace them." .. F. Flnkelsloln of the Frank's Sample Store also urges early shopping, owing to the conditions of the wool- supply, lie says that separate uniforms are the m6st popular styles for young men this season. Otherwise the suits are slnglo breasted, semi-fitted models, featuring the now roll slcove head, and vertical slash pockets. The solid colors are worn, green,' blue and brown. The overcoats aro in the ulsterette styles, with convertible collars and slightly high walsted effects. Fur collars will bo very good In dressy models. "Evening dress," says Mr. Jordan, "Is very much out of date this season." "Plain, conservative styles, In good materials and well tailored wilPbe the features sought in clothing for young men and their elders this season," said 0. E. Hlpplo of the Hostutler and Hlpplo Clothiers Co. Many of the models are mllitnry In cut and aro in the lending cplors, green, brown and gray mixtures. Tbe government restrictions on men's tailors regarding the unnecessary use of wool has eliminated many of the leading features of young men's clothing. There arc no plaits, tucks In tho back, cuffs on the sleeves, collars on the vests, or patch pockets on tlio full-lined sack coats. Many of the fall suits are half or threo- quarter lined. The two or three but toned soft rolling lapel mode!, with the coat, slightly longer Is favored. Few dress suits are being shown. Blue, brojvn and mixtures are. favored f6f overcoats, which are tho straight fitted models with narrow shoulders and flare skirts. Fur and aatrakan collars arc used very little. "Green leads for men'B fall and winter clothing," said D. Ernest For- sythc of the Forsytlie Clothing Co. "Shirts ore silk and In loud colors." Overcoats will be decidedly shorter this season than ever before." said J. E. Etetn, house mafragor at the Loader. "Tho suits are in the Btralght fitted, .single breasted models, and come mostly In green, blue; V r own arid In fixtures. Caps are In more sober shades than heretofore." Dunkirk Has a Record.
