.awaiting the first millinery opening,
and are today showing thoroughly
their appreciation of fhis 'opportunity
of seeing the advance styles on the
same date of many millinery showings
in New .York and other large cities.
From the creations seen today at the
shops of M. Webb & Co. tne coming

and very necessary tailored models
which display dash, dignity and slm
pie good taste. Some of the hats be
ing shown are tine pressed milaiis,
others of imported hand sewed straws.
Tho noted absence of many of Miss
Webb's models and those bearing
tickets marked "sold" havo evidenced
the fact that the ladies who have at
tended have not only admired but
have purchased ns well, which has
proven gratifying to the tlrin mciu-1
