PAGE EIGHT HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Hints for Weil-Groomed Yuletide By ALICIA HART NBA Service Stnff Writer NEW YORK-Holly-trimmed cosmetic counters are laden with Christmas gifts that every member of the family will love.

These and many j new varieties, too, come in unbe-1 Hevably stunning bottles. Three tiny! flacons with graceful plume-like i stoppers are packaged in an attractive ' box trimmed with similar plumes. A 1 Softly lighted Christmas tree, with a sparkling white base, is loaded with | eleven falcons of fine perfume. It comes complete with electric cord and i plug for illumination and would be a gift de luxe indeed. Incidentally, the j perfume tree would make a nice centerpiece for a Christmas party table—>' with a falcon for each guest. Two tiny bottles of fine perfume.! their tops swathed in white leather, are done up in a regal looking box of simulated white leather with gold trimming. Five tiny perfume spheres hang from the ftem of a bright colored oak leaf. A crown of perfume comes r> a Christmas bell. And a set of two l sparkling white bells contains two per- ( fumes from a famous manufacturer.

With the Hempstead Home Agent Melva Bullington Wednesday, December 14,1938 ilo with Christmas as any other lime of (lie ycnr, for the farm has much to offer in the way of Christmas decorations nml gifts. Miss Sue Marshall, extension specialist in clothing and household nrts, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, offers several suggestions for using products of the farm during the Christmas season in decorating the house and setting the stage for holiday fun. A table decoration of fruits and vegetables and nuts for either the dining room or living room can bo provided from the storage cellar, and is particularly attractive when the products arc arranged in a large yellow, green or brown bow, Miss Marshall suggests. Then why not a live Christmas tree —one that will not be dried up in a lew days and scatter leaves nil over (be floor. Transplant a small cedar, pine, or holly tree into a box, bucket or can so it can be watered. Keep the soil moist and it will last for a month or longer ivnd can bo planted in the yard later to be used for other Christmases, she suggests. The Christmas tree can be set on the floor, on a table, or in a window. If one has electric liglils, the tree can be decorated with colored lights. If not, sweet Iftim balls may be panited silver and gilt or dipped in bright colored quick drying lacqure. Bright colored cellophane, strings of red berries from the woods, and popcorn can be used for further decoration. Wreathes may be made of holly, cedar, or pine for the windows and doors. These may be tied with bright colored ribbon or bows of crepe pa- pei. Miss Marshall advises taking clown some of the regular accessories used in the home while the Christmas decorations are being used so the house does not have a stuffed, crowded appearance. Winter boquots of red berries and seed pnd;: of various kinds have many possibilities as decorations. The curtains and draperies should be washed or pressed if needed and the floors freshly oiled, waxed, or painted for the occasion. "When this is done, get a festive look on your face and it will be a "Merry Christmas for you and your family." declares Miss Marshall.

SI EW ARTS Jewelry Store JFim Nuiiunul Bunk Building STORBES IN STAMPS Assassination Elevated Arthur to Presidency CHESTER ALAN ARTHUR first won his spurs in the law in the famous Lemmon case of New York. The case, tried in the decade before the Civil War, involved validity of certain phases of the fugitive slave law. So skillful'.y did Arthur marshall his evidence that he won a verdict from New York's highest court that any slave being transported from one slave state to another becar»e free while in the boundaries of New York. During the Civil War itself Arthur won wide recognition for his work as quartermaster general of New York state. In 1871, partly as a reward for his long Republican political activity, he was named collector of the port of New York by President Grint. Four years later he was reappointed, but subsequently was removed by President Hayes over disagreement as to civil service reform. But Arthur was not long out of politics. In fact, he moved up to the vice presidency, where he waged a powerful influence in patronage matters, culminating in' the resignation of two members of the Senate. Then President Garfield was shot and Arthur immediately succeeded him. Hardly had he taken office, however, when he reversed his political efforts. He swung from the old partisanship to a full recognition of the great cares of his office. Tariff legislation and development of the navy were the main highlights of his term. The President is shown here on a stamp of the new U. §. regular series, enlarged. (Copyright, 11)38. ^E/ *»••- -'^-\ Inc.) Christmas Bnxcs 'Die woods of Hcmpstoad county offer many possibilities for making decorative Christmas boxes, and home demonstration club women are taking idvantago of them. Pine cones which are lound abundantly on Hempstead county farms have been converted into candle holders; pine needle baskets are being used tor nuts, fruits and pop corn containers. Arkansas grown apples polished until they shine packed in a basket lined wtih sweet scented cedar is a suggestion offered by Miss Sybil D. Bates, extension specialist in home industries, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, as a gift whcih will appeal to the eye as well as the appetite. A two-gallon melon-shaped basket made from hickory splints give another attractive container for apples. A sprig of holly tied to the handle with a red cellophane bow if. another idea for a festive package. Small boxes after being packed and wrapped can be given a spirit of gaiety by fastening a sprig of holly, mistletoe, or a small pine branch bearing a cone or two in the bow of the cord used for tying. Pecans, black walnut and hickory nuts, found in practically every part of Arkansas, if hulled and packed in attractive containers, are always a welcome gift to the person who likes to make candy or cakes. Half the joy of the holiday season comes with planning attractive gifts, declare.-; Miss Bates, adding that it also offers opportunity for' one to show ingenuity and originality. Mrs. C. P. Zimmerly of the Mclrose club makes Arkansas Fruit cakes c ich year and .send them as gifts to relatives and friends in older stale's. Last yer.r the cakes went to seven states. Decorations Th'_- Christmr.s .spirit is in evidence early in Hempstcad county homes, now that the harvest season is over and busy farm families can take some time out to make festive plans for the holidays.
