TIE IB,:"-: ;SOLOiEB3' HOMES , BLtilSTMAS is as pathetic as it Is joyous to' ipany" of the old Confederate veterans' who. by. fate .ajia ..circumstances,, . a r e forced, to depend entirely" upon tbe generosity of. their conirades and their friends who have prospered since the war. Ttere are no pensions for_these oi2 soiciers except tae meager suras thev rrec from tbe various states. Some of tiie veterans are dependent on these iiisiiraJScaat funcs to keep them out of the poorbonse. Tbe Sftietb anniversary of tbe battle of Gettysburg was celebrated last July. Tbe twenty-year-old boy of this battle is now a gray haired veteran of seventy-^oia soldiers are crossing The great divide by tbe score, and before many years have passed there will be few lefL. Abont twenty years ago it was discovered that many of the bravest gol- cicrs of the war were drifting to the pe-orhp-.ises because there was nowhere e!sy for tie-is to go and because tlielr wounds kept ihem from work. Many had iso relatives, and the relatives Of ethers were too poor to support tbe (\A. solciers. In many cases tae veter- ah:» tlecllneo to accept alms. Tae movement 10 take care of these niea rosu!:c-e in Confederate homes in all of the saafterB siates. ar.d descendants of t!:2 men who wore tee gray now spend about S2.000.0CO annually in pensions aa«l in tbe support of various liotses- Cbnstrnas is a happy reality ia these Although, owing to the slender incomes, tbe homes have to run oa tiie most modest basis, there is co skimping at Christmas time. From tbe neighborhood nronnd come turkeys and chickens end pies and biscuits and fruit and cakes and tobacco in plenty--everything except wises and liquors, for tbe rales against alcohol in these institutions are particularly} strict Ana on Cnrisnsas day tie rela- j tives and friends and acquaintances crowd to tbe homes with all sorts of presents r.nd with good wishes for the oW feHows, who recall their fight for the lost cause with pride ia what they did and with satisfaction for tbe preservation of tbe Union. You vrilj bear some one say: "That old feHow over there, with one eye and one leg. was the most brilliant yonng snr.n in our town. He belonged to the richest family' in the county. Rr,t the war took the.wealth, and he lost the'eye and tHe leg in tbe Wilderness, nncl n bullet in his'bead ruined bis mind for life. AH his people are dead, and on!y the few of us who were with him know what n brave man he was. I left my family today to come out here HIM! bring a box of cigars nnd tslk .1 little over old times to let hinvknow that he is not entirely forgotten." The best thing about it is the old follows are always disposed to do' full jnstK-o to t!w offerings of the day.-yyer old lov_e letters, is DOT queer it ami to; look their best in their gray unl- would seem now. if any of tt had come form?: nut! to tell their choicest stories,. jrue,--New York ~ and to eat.the most.. -."_'' scissors CASE. but In tbe fittings too. It reSec's better taste if you give a small and ieau- Ufni:y fitted case rather than or.e filled wi".h n shoddy loiist collection and a cleaning appsirstus. A fuied traveling bag makes a superior gift if you wish Jo expend that much money--S25.or niore. If so, it is advisable to get ivory, imitation ivory or ebony fittings, KS they are not quite so heavy as those of silver. The man who travels will be pleased to death with tbe neatly put up leather case seen in tbe illustration that is filled with scissors of different sizes-and a penkwifc; And for the man who rides horseback what, more appropriate-than the whisk broom holder mounted in a stirrup setting? _ (Kins asro there tvere two men Hviag :u t::e of i.liti jpreat cities oa the east- era coast" ti(- the .United Siatas who. thougb they \rere father and son. were t-auujs. .-TfcejrwerCrk-b and ultra fash- !oualie.-ivaJeb.
