07 21       The New Skirt

R. & H. S. Howell have just received from the manufactures, J. I. & O. J. West of New York, the new Duplex Elliptic Spring Skirt, which is now everywhere preferred to all others.  It is well made, strong and serviceable, but at the same time light and graceful and so elastic and flexible that it yields to the least pressure without spreading in all directions and assuming all kinds of awkward shapes.  It encircles the form symmetrically, readily contracts into a narrow space, and can be managed with the utmost ease and convenience.  It combines all the latest improvements, is manufactured of the best material, and will doubtless be adopted by the ladies as the fashionable and favorite skirt.   WD
