It is not only the baby, but his little

The (fewest Muff's.
A new shape of muff is made long and
round, With a frill quite six inches deep
at each end. Such muffs are lined inside
witli satin, and the frill comes beyond the
edge. But a large sized muff is brought
in lined iu such a manner that it is not
in any way stiff and so assumes a flat
form. Velvet and moire are both em
ployed fur muffs, and they are trimmed
with a cascade frilled down the center,
edged with fur. Serge is used for muffs
edged with astrakhan, trimmed witli
braid and intended of course to wear
with serge gowns.
