While walking past the well known dry goods firm of Bach & Abel the other afternoon in search of news, a Reg-ster reporter noticed that the firm was engaged in unpacking their fall and winter stock of goods. Knowing that Mr E. B. Abel, the junior member of the firm, had just returned from New York and Boston, where he had purchased goods in all the latest styles, in cloak?, dresg goods and novelties, he determined to find out what the latest styles would be for the coming winter. After waiting a few moments an audience was secured, and after stating the object of his visit the reporter was escorted up stairs into their CLOAK ROOM, which is a large, spacious one, with four Windows opening out on Washington-st. Between two of these windows stands a large French plate mirror, by which the purchaser can bring out the effect of the garment she is trying on. Although the room is about 60x25 feet, it was more than comfortably well filled with all the latest styles in geal plush sacks and jackets, short wraps, newmarkets, cloth jackets, etc, i etc. The Eeal plush gack is known to every lady in the land as always being in style. They have them in all sizes, and prices range from $20 to $G0. The seal plush jacket, plain and trimmed in genuine beaver, always a very handsome garment, is more so this fall than ever, and the lady who purchases one will never have cause to regret it. They range in price from $15 to $25. The short wrap in plush, astrachan, boude and plain beaver, is a garment that will be worn a great deal this winter. A style of cloak which meets with favor by the ladies, is the nlain newmarket, trimmed with beaver, astrachan and braid. The garment which caught the eye of the reporter, however, was a plain plush jacket trimmed with' beaver, and we imagine it will be a fast seller,thoughMr Abel says the plaid new market, with or without cape, is the newest artiole out, and in the Eist has already becorpe the most popular garment worn. In this department are some very handsome cloth jackets for Iadies, of every description, ranging in price from $2 up. Also a very handsome and well-selected assortment of misses' garments, in all styles and prices. In this department they also display their stock of shawl, which is one of the finest in the state. They exhibit all kinds and styles from the most experffive camel's hair, fancy beaver, and black cashmere, both single and doubl├ę, down to the very cheapest. Their shawls, like their cloaks, present that same appe ranee of durability and style which are necessary now-adays to make a garment sell. Among other thingg we noticed in this department was a very fine assortment of lace curtains, jerseys, and; Iadies' muslin underwear. THE SILK DEPARTMENT. . If' there is one thing more than another which a lady selecta with care, it is a silk dress. They have been lashionable for ages, and will be until Dr. Mary Walker succeeds in winning the fair sex to her ideas on women's wearing apparel. But styles change very often, and Mr. Abel assured us that the stock he purchased while east and is now ihowing, is of the ver; latest and is destined to have a long run. Some very bandsome pieces of Faille Francaise, Radzimere, Surah, Rhadames, Armures, Grosgrains, Moire Antique and many ethers are on exhibition. THE DRESS G00D9, from which the taity costumes for street and parlor aresoon to be made, were next examined. In dress goods there are many different styles, but our attention was first directed to the Soleil Raye in the following shades: Vieux bleu, Sautal, Bois de Rose, Acajon, Dauti, Bronze, Bresil, Ezable, Eucalyptu?, Boa, Carthage, Indigo, Evegue, and many others. Mr. A. assured us that they were the latest colore in tfee the market, and thathe selected them with especial care toplease his customers. Another very pretty pattern was a plaid combination in Turkish efifects ; ateo combinations in tailor suitings and plaids in different colors. Different suitings are shown in ├»elephone, Cassimere Check, Camel Hair; Foule, Molanges, Tricots, Cashraeres, Serges, Diagonals, etc. In colored dress goods, this firm is showing the ever popular Jamestown goods. In black goods we were shown a very handsome line in fine silk waip Henriettas, Armanias, Rhadames, Sebastopol, Serges and Diagonals. An especially handsome piece of goods suitable for ladies is the Rayune Subline. These things suggested to the reporter that a very exquisita assortment of trimmings would necessarily have to becarried in stock. We were assured by the proprietors that they had everything to match all colors with, trom buttons to kid gloves. In glancing around the store of this enterprlsing firm, it was noticed that considerable apace was taken up with a large stock of table linens, woolen blankets, underwear, hosiery, etc. In ribbons, they have a very tasty, eelected stock, of which the moire antique with picot edges is by far the prettiest. In the basement is an immense stock of blankets, comforters, geese feathers, etc.
