New Styles in Fur
Coats Bellin' Worn.
Paris.—Autumn’s first chill wind
has brought nut the winter furs of the
A fortnight ago fur was a trim
ming, something women wore because
it was fashionable, but at Longchnmp
recently they had become an essential
part of dress and were put on for.
A natural sealskin coat trimmed
with skunk, worn by one of the models
was the sensation of the day. Paris
had never seen such a seal coat before.
Usually the sealskin as prepared by
Paris furriers and worn by Parisien
nes is of a brownish color, the result
of clever handling by the fur experts.
This seal had undergone no transfor
mation since its capture on the banks
of Newfoundland or Behring sen. It
was grey, silky, shiny, in spots shading
from grey to white, the' seal in its nat
Otter skin was one of the favorites
By some unusual process of the fur
rier a golden tint had been given to
the fur, which promises to be very
popular. Fox furs, squirrel, badger,
skunk and astruknn also were shown.
Ermine is the cosen fur for evening
wraps when chincilla is not used. Both
these furs are popular for thenter
cloaks and coats. Stone martin, sable
and mink are being used for scarves,
which are wide and long.

The “Looker On"
Writes on Radio.
A number of Shelby people have in
stalled radio cabinets in their homes.
They just bought the piece of furni
ture in, set it down, put some batter
ies in the back, shut it up, turned a
few knobs in front, and lo! and be
hold! from nowhere comes the most
beautitul music from somewhere. It
may be Pittsburgh; New York; Tex
as. Not an aerial anywhere, not a
piece of wire, all the doors and win
dows closed and from that little
spooky cabinet issues these wonder
ful sounds. Now what I want to know,
how does Pittsburgh “K 1) K A” got
into the air, the air into the house,
and into the cabinet ? It’s a weird, nan
understandable thing, and a visitor
from Charlotte said: “ I hear it, but
really I can't understand it, ‘there
aint no such thing’ but there is;” a
paradox which you can solve, that is
If yoo can.
