Irene Castle Dazzles Paris with Her Style—[Returns with a Host of New Ideas for Philipsborn's.] It was my privilege to stand behind the scenes in the greatest drama of history. While the great war rocked the world and the battle lines swayed to and fro, as millions met in conflict—when our own glorious army arrived just in time to stop the onrush of the Hun and snatched victory from defeat—my thoughts turned ever to the mothers, wives, sisters and sweethearts far across the sea — heroines, everyone! The spirit of American Womanhood, through those months of tense anxiety, fills me with pride beyond the power of words to express. My part seems small indeed in comparison with yours. In hospitals, rest camps and billets behind the lines—wherever the need was greatest—it gave me joy to assist in entertaining "Our Boys"—the cleanest, finest fighting men in all the world. The thought that I bore them a message from you and you and you—of love and trust and cheer—upheld me and gave me courage for the strenuous tasks that awaited me. I gave them the best I had and I gave it in your name. Could you have looked into their eager faces, you would feel it was well worth while. The memories of my war-time experiences will ever be an inspiration and now that my work is ended I am most happy to be home again. My stay in Paris afforded me an opportunity to visit the ateliers of all the famous designers. What did I see? Look through the pages of the Philipsborn Style Book and you will find the answer.

[Irene Castle Dazzles Paris with Her Style—]Returns with a Host of New Ideas for Philipsborn's. PARIS today, as always, is the fountain head of Fashion. The war has not shaken her style supremacy, but has made it still more secure. Each succeeding Paris season unfolds to the world's admiration new forms of beauty in dress, more alluring than ever before. The Paris Styles for the Fall of Nineteen are altogether lovely. Since you could not share with me the delight of visiting the famous ateliers where Paris styles are created, it was a great pleasure for me to gather the very latest and best and bring them home for YOU. The beautiful new modes presented in the Philipsborn Style Book are my gifts from France to you. Never did this wonderful book bring you richer treasurers of beauty in dress. Best of all, you will find that these many, many lovely things bring luxury and economy very close together. Philipsborn's prices have always been low, despite the superb Quality of every garment, but this season with their profit-sharing plan, they are surely the lowest in all America for merchandise of equal value. You will look your best when you are fitted out in "Philipsborn's Very Latest from Paris." With all good wishes, [hand-written signature of] Irene Castle.

All the delivery charges are paid by us besides—which is an added saving. Third Guarantee—The Bank.
