Fashion flavors strongly of the gay
nineties for fall this year. In addition
to the much-flaunted bustle, other
GId-fashioned ideas are being re-
vived. Jet beads, silk braids, cord
short fringes - - in fact
all sorts of passemen-
terie trimmings are
news. Peplums will vie .
with bustles to give ,
back interest. In coats
the bustle line is ex- S
pressed in back fulness
also, but modified so
that it won't be dated
for the season follow-
ing. The coats are
molded through the
middle and the fullness
set on low in a smooth yoke.
The sweater market is going to ex-
pand this fall and introduce many
new ideas in addition to the good old
classic cardigans and slip-overs. One
of the most unusual ideas is the print-
ed sweater in classic lines. The yarn
is knitted in a not-too-fine gauge and
the design handblocked onto the
sweaters. This is especially effective
in a Persian design. Low necked eve-
ning sweaters and hooded cardigans
are other sweater flashes. These
evening sweaters are particularly en-
gaging in chenille trimmed with
metalic embroidery set with rhine-
stones in decorative scrolls and flor-
als. Sounds elaborate, but they're
really very effectvie with simple, full
evening skirts and provide much
chance for change-about.
'Tis said that New York debutantes
are busily running scented ribbons in
their lingerie these days. The ribbon
comes by the bolt in 30 different
scents and provides a new way to
keep smelling sweet like a posie.
From fall back to hot
August weather. There
are lots of days left for
swimming, so it's a wise
idea to take advantage
\_of the end-of-season
sales on bathing suits.
55 Lastex is deemed to be a
. classic, and you can't
go wrong on a perfect-
ly plain tailored style.

elasticized seersuckers with exposed
midriff and tiny puff sleeves.
Tweeds will still be tops, for all-
round wear this fall in top-coats,
suits and three-piece suits. Alligator
shoes will be shown for suits as well
as for more sophisticated costumes.
Matching bags, if your budget can
encompass one, are ultra smart. New
ideas in bags include longer than
wide shapes and suede envelopes
with matching faille trim.
Two startling new fall accessory
colors are bittersweet, a soft rose-
rust hue, and wintergreen, a deep
mossy green. They're both deep, vi-
brant shades destined to highlight
fall costumes effectively.
Hankies are small, unimportant
items, but we all like distinctive ones.
About the prettiest de-
signs are those described

One of these is a delicate floral pat-
tern in mouth-watering shades of
pink and blue and will provide a
fillip for your drooping summer

Erie And Kalamazoo Line
Is Subject Of Painting
In Blissfield Building
The first railroad to be constructed
west of Schenectady, was built
through the tiny pioneer settlement
of Blissfield in the Michigan Terri-
Today in the Blissfield post office
a mural depicting the laying of this
railroad is being painted by Prof.
Jean Paul Slusser of the College of
The railroad, the Erie and Kala-
mazoo, connected Toledo and Adrian,
opening up the rich Kalamazoo river
section to traffic from the Great
Lakes. Begun in 1833, it was com-
pleted Oct. 1, 1836, with at first a
horse-drawn train, the next year a
steam locomotive. A train of usually
two passenger and three or four
freight cars made the 33-mile run at
an average speed of 14 miles an hour
at a cost to the traveler of approxi-
mately four and one-half cents a
mile. This railroad has long since
ceased to function though its road-
bed is discernible in certain places.
Professor Slusser's mural, "Laying
the Erie and Kalamazoo Railroad,"
is an attempt to summarize the ac-
tivities that went into the actual
construction of the line in 1833 and
the years following. Trees have been
felled with the axe and cleared from
the right of way, though stumps are
thick on either side of the levelled
dirt roadbed. The ties of split and
squared hardwood are laid transver-
sely at intervals of three to four feet
and upon them eventually come the
rails, also of hardwood, but lined on
the upper edge with a strap of iron.
In the mural, two pairs of work-

men are lowering ties into position
under the direction of an overseer
who holds a chart or map. An axe-
man at the right finishes off a last
tree left too near the line, while two
men with shovels put finishing
touches to the grading of the road-
The men are sturdy pioneer types,
bearded mostly and with uncut hair,
and aredressed in rough'homespun
shirts and trousers, or occasionally
in a suit or garment of buckskin,
trapper fashion. Several wear caps
of dressed fur. A settler's log cabin
is seen in the middle distance at the
edge of one of the "oak openings',
which give this part of Michigan its
particular landscape character, and
which made its'development into rich
farmlands a relatively easy matter.
