It does not matter in the least what department yon may favour with your patronage (though incidentally one purchase at Ben Evans and Co. is certain to lead on to another, because a perfect gown must be worthily Crowned by a perfect hat, and ao on) a creation of Uen Evans and Co. is always a thing of beauty. Mid the nearest approach to a possible joy for ever, seeing that its long life is ensured by the beat of materials and workmanship, and to the 1aat day of its existence it is of a distinguished quite unapproachable smartness, which sets fearer in the prond position of being beyond «ntioiBm. A.t the present moment the writer's of Ben Evans and Co. in general ■as been specify claimed by Bome uniquely 1 u creations in gowns, hats, bonnets and ttantles.

It is exceedingly beautiful but then so is another French grey tea gown with hand embroidered collar, and trimmed with stitchings of white silk and cream lace. Perhaps it would be as well to explain that their buyers have only just returned from an important *ieit to the leading ateliers in Paris. They Cave large orders for the latest and best Parisian and Continental novelties, and the People of South Wales and the West of England are now offered these novelties. The magnificent j •how-rcom on the second floor is a veritable ladies' < Paradise just now. The display of novelties is as Unique all it is lovoly, and should on no account be missed.

Another French model hat is Composed of lace brim, edged straw, handsomely trimmed with large white tips and tulle, and handsome buckle.
