FASHION HERALDS THE
RETURN OF THE LACES
|| After a Period of Neglect, almost of Disuse, They have Come Back, an Exquisite, Billowy Tide of
Loveliness That Has Swept Over the Entire Fashionable World.
Lace iH everywhere.
Ninety-nine out of every hundred of the
new gown-creations are trimmed with it.
Whole gowns are made of it.
The only exceptions to its almost univer-
sal use are the more severe of the tailor-
mades, and even these show sailor collars
and cuffs of heavy handsome Venise.
A visitor to Fifth Avenue and its most
exclusive shops the last of last week, dis-
covered jnst one gown among the hundreds
of models that showed no touch of lace.
THE FURORE FOR WIDE BANDS
One similarity runs through all this im-
mense varied taste in lace—the use of the
wide band. Nearly all the laces are made
up in this form. Bands as wide as an all-
over trim the bottom of a skirt or finish a
tunic. They are used to form almost the
whole of a waist, particularly of the kimo-
no style, or they lorm the upper or lower
section of the sleeves. One quaint style
showed a half—one side—of a waist made
of this wide lace band, the other half of
chiffon. Rut whatever the fashion may be
There is no Kind or form of Lace Fash-
ionable today that is not represented
in the Russell Brothers Co's, Lace Shop.
Here are the real laces, Venise, lilet, the
shadow laces, Cluny, Irish, Brussels point,
Duchesse, in edgings, insertions, wide
bands, all-overs, with quaint and beautiful
motifs among them also. Here are novel-
ties, such as Cluny with square mesh, and
Venises which are a wonderful reproduction
of the old-time Venetian.
Both Venise and filet are to be had in
gold and silver, and there is a large and
beautiful collection of black laces. There
are imitations of all the real laces, with Val-
cncines in sets, than which there is nothing
more charming for the simple Summer gown.
too, feel the effect of the Luce revival.
Here the distinctive notes of the season
are the embroideries on Batiste, and the
color embroideries, with edgings, insertions,
galons to match. Embroidered all-overs, in
white and colors are among the most charm-
ing suggestions for gowns. The two-tone
embroideries, two shades of blue, for in-
stance, on white, are novel and beautiful.
Among the wealth of embroideries, both
colored and white, there are many more
new things, new this year, and new to Pilot
Point, found only in our own Embroidery
Shop. And we have a profusion of dainty
White Goods to go with the Embroideries.

COTTON IS KING!
"What a royal plunt it isl Not the fleece that Jason
sought can rival the richness of this plant, as it unfurls
its banners in our fields. The whole world waits in at-
tendance on its growth. The shower that falls whispering
on its leases is heard around the earth. The frost that
chills it, the dew that descends from the stars is noted,
and the trespass of a little worm on its green leaf is more
to England than the advance of the Russian army on her
Asian outposts. It is gold from the instant it puts forth
its tiny shoot. Its fiibre ia current in every bank, and
when, loosing its fleece to the sun, it floats a sunny ban-
ner that glorifies the fields of the humble farmer, that
man is marshalled under a flag that will compel the alle-
giance of the world and wring a subsidy from every na-
tion on earth, It is the heritage that GOD gave to this
people FOREVER A3 THEIR OWN when he arched our
skie9, established our mountains, girt us about with the
ocean, loosed the breezes, tempered the sunshine and
measured the rain. Ours and our children's forever. As
princely a talent as ever came from His hand to mortal
