Allhices Marked in PlaiDFisum Making a Good Firat Impression With Holiday The conventional holiday wrappings of white tissue, red ribbon tied and decorated with holly, are both season able and artistic, but when the gifts rome tumbling In by mail and express, each externally the counterpart of all Its fellows, one involuntarily wishes eome ingenious person would devise a means of varying the monotony. A bright New England girl has, like Sentimental Tommy, "foand a w'y," and the dainty packages which she A NEST OF BOXES. contrives year after year materially enhance the value of their usually Inexpensive contents.

She makes It a rule to start her holiday preparations In good season and to wrap or pack each gift as soon as it is completed. A small pin was concealed in the In nermost box of a nest of six, and the growing astonishment of the recipient as she opened one box only to disclose another until the cover of the sixth was lifted and revealed the little gift In its cotton nest was delicious. Boxes containing presents for little folk were decorated with figures of birds, animals and children, traced from magazine illustrations and adver tisements and cnt from scarlet paper after the manner of the old fashioned silhouettes. Borne of the small objects were Inclosed in cylinders made of bristol board covered with fringed tissue paper. Red and green ribbons were laced In lattice fashion around the cylinders and tied in a bow at each end.

One season she wrapped the majority of her gifts in birch bark, no two packages being quite alike. In some cases the bark was used to cover boxes, the corners being sewed over and over with scarlet silk or laced with fine silk cord. One or two of these were decorated with gray moss, others with scarlet dyed everlastings. Designer. Concerning; Noodles.

A report of the Connecticut experiment station states that "noodles are prepared by European housewives and some manufacturers from flour with the addition of a certain amount of eggs and salt. 'The dough is rolled into sheets and cnt into strips or fanciful shapes. Most of the noodles on the market, however, although of a golden yellow color, are not made with eggs, but have about the same composition as macaroni, being dyed either with a vegetable color (commonly turmeric) or a coal tar dye." Twenty-two samples of noodles were collected and analyzed by the station during 1904, and all were found to "contain foreign coloring matter, which In twelve cases was turmeric and in ten cases was an azo color," evidently added with the Intention of conveying the impression that the noodles were made with eggs or contained a greater amount of eggs than was actually used. Few of the samples examined showed any evidence of the use of an appreciable amount of egg In theli preparation. Renovating; Velvet.

Velvet if properly steamed will look quite new, says a household exchange. One way of doing it is to pass the back of the velvet to and fro several times over the spout of a steaming kettle, holding the material close to the steam. Then use a camel's hair brush on the surface side to raise the pile. Another method is as follows: Stand a hot iron upright and cover it with a wet cloth, passing the wrong side of the velvet quickly over the steaming cloth. Brush, as In the other method, invariably in the direction of the grain.

To remove stains from velvet rub lightly and rapidly with a clean cloth dipped In chloroform, and the stains will disappear. Repeat the operation if necessary. Be carefnl to rnb the article rapidly and lightly, then finish with a dry cloth. The German Wonder Ball. A lady made a number of the delightful wonder balls, for which the suggestion comes from Germany, for a children's hospital Fancy the delight of the little folks! Select a number of very small toys, such as the tiny animals one finds at Japanese stores bugs, spiders, small knives, forks and spoons for dolly's dinner table and for the center keep the best gift of all, a pretty thimble or a small knife.

Then with bright worsted begin winding Into a ball, every now and then putting in a gift, but seeing that each is thoroughly covered before adding another. Fashion's Echoes. Brown caracal is a pretty, pleasing novelty In furs. Diamond collars show festoons of leaves on a netlike ground or elegant bar patterns in a variety of designs. Velvets and the plain supple cloth lead among fashionable fabrics.

Ankle or instep length Is the American morning skirt. All the pretty pastel shades in dress fabrics and trimmings have returned to favor, but in more pronounced tones. Again the round ostrich boa has found favor with fashionable women. A new idea is the circular skirt with gores, a device that serves to prevent the unsightly sagging to which this otherwise shapely skirt is prone. The new ostrich boas come in shades to match the gowns.

Exchange. Our Compliments 0P tsheW To our many Friends and Patrons. Winter Care of Farm Horses The feed, and care of farm horses during the. winter months should be governed somewhat by the condition of the animals and the amount of work tad exercise they are getting, writes a New Tort farmer in American Agriculturist Under no conditions is it advisable to cut off the grain ration entirely or turn the animals out to a straw stack to get a scant living as best they can, or, in other to barely, exist until springtime and hard work come again. Individual horses require different feeds and in varying quantities during the winter months.

Some animals when not at work will winter nicely on silage as a principal feed, with some hay, but I prefer to add some bran and ground oats to the ration. I would not advise the feeding of silage to any horse that is being worked or driven or one that is at all subject to the colic. A horse that goes In the. winter in fair flesh should be fed a moderate amount of hay twice a day. Many farmers feed too much hay.

What a horse will eat in an hour la a great plenty; also enough bran and middlings or ground oats to keep it la good condition. A little salt once a week or, better, If you can get it, a good sized lump of rock salt in the manger is advisable. Occasionally hot bran mash with a little oiJmeal added is a good thing. Heavy or excessive feeding is not necessary if the horse is in fair Let a horse get poor, hair rough and dull, and it is more expensive to get him In condition again than to keep him in good shape all the time. Horses should have all the water they want.

They should be watered often enough so they will not get chilled by drinking too much cold water at one time. A Clydesdale Prise Winner.

Twins Casapared -WltTa Single Lambs.

Toft twin iambs in an ordinary flock art usually smaller than single lambs. Whether the smaller size la due prima rily to the lack of proper nutrition aft er birth or to a small size at birth or to both these conditions has not been ckarlr determined. The difference be tween the birth weights of twin lambs anil single lambs Is smaller than la usu ally supposed, The birth weight of the twin male lambs Is greater than the birth weight of the single female iambs. The average birth weight of ail twin born lambs Is about one-half a pound below the general average for ait lambs. The single female lambs weighed at birth only eight-tenths of a pound more than the twin born females.

The smaller size of twin lambs observed la most flocks is undoubtedly more the result of Insufficient nutrition while suckling than the Inferior sis at birth. Very few ewes yield sufficient milk to properly nourish two thrifty, early maturing lambs. If such lambs are early taught to eat grain and hay the twin lambs will in most cases thrive equally as well as the single Limbs of the same birth weight Professor F. B. Mumford.

Keep Animals Thrifty. Live stock which goes into the winter fat and thrifty will always have a big advantage over that which comes to the winter season thin and emaciated. There are many breeders who are radically opposedto policy which will result in making breeding animals fat at any season of the year. There Is good reason for not overfeeding breeding animals, but there Is a happy mean between; the two extremes which permits the animal to become thrifty and hearty without being too fat. name v.

Good Form Necessary Simple Keua of Acquiring It. Speaking of the fact that fashion has been rather slow in adopting the empire style in dress, an authority on the human figure says it is clearly evident that "what has kept the empire vogue from attracting general approval hitherto has been a stupid indifference to figure.

The presumption was that nothing mattered beneath loose folds, whereas, on the contrary, everything depended on the perfection of the fig-ore." A Good Carriage. The woman who has a bad figure ind desires to improve It has it greatly In her own power to do so. Setting aside the question of diet entirely, although it is so important a factor in both good complexions and figures, one must begin with the most simple roles. A woman who stands badly will never look well. She must contract the habit knowingly, both in standing and walking, of keeping the stomach well In, the chest well forward and expanded, the shoulders back and the head poised at a slightly raised yet comfortable angle, which will not allow the chin to fall upon the neck.

There is also the question of breathing. Riant Deep breathing exercises should be Included in the physical education of every child who is carefully and conscientiously brought np. One thing la certain no woman can develop her chest naturally without accurate breathing. In order to practice it properly the head must be thrown back, the shoulders kept square and a deep breath taken very slowly through the nose until the lungs are filled with air. There is no more effectual aid to beauty than deep breathing, for it has toe most remarkable effect on the internal organs, and therefore on the general appearance.

FUR FASHIONS. Sumptuous and Varied Are Garments and Accessories. The luxury and the play of fancy in furs this season are slightly suggested by the models here represented. One is a coat of mink, the skins radiating up the center of the back, with facings, collar and sleeve frills of ermine. Exceptional beauty characterizes the stole and muff of Russian fitch lined with ermine.

The stole, as may be noted, is of extra length and the muff FASHIONABLE FUBS. fashioned in quite a new way, the low er edge blocked in such manner as to clearly define the three skins employed. Fur lined coats still continue a feature of sumptuous fashion. A model of a happy and original turn exploits the short bolero in sable, beaver or caracal, hung around with tails. Such boleros are designed to be worn over the new corselet skirt, which is the latest expression of dress In Paris.

Imagine a long, flowing sealskin redingote over a black cloth corselet skirt, and the acme of elegance in fur fashions, as realized at a recent social function, is reached. The muff of today is large, and when one is tall and can carry off this big affair it can undoubtedly be made a very striking feature of the toilet In even moderately expensive fur an extra size muff adds a touch of opulence and impressiveness to the wearer. LOUISE R. GAT. Chocolate Fie.

Scald one pint of milk. Stir into mis half a cup of flour mixed with half a cnp of sugar and one-fourth of a tea-spoonful of salt Stir constantly until the mixture thickens, then stir in the yolks of three eggs beaten with one-fourth of a cup of sugar and an ounce or more of softened chocolate. Flavor with half a tea spoonful of cinnamon and pour into a plate lined with pastry as for a custard pie. Bake and let cool a little, then spread upon the pie a meringue made of the whites of three eggs and six level tablespoonfuls of sugar. Marabou Neckpieces.

Marabou and ostrich combinations are among the most fascinating neck adornments for dress occasions in particular, for the lovely dyes used on the delicate feathers furnish an entrancing choice. The more sober colors are equally attractive and prove extremely flattering to every complexion when in' different shades of brown and gray aa well as all black and black and white. Vogue. Bar Fins For Collars and Cuffs. Bar pins In sets of three for collar and cuffs are much In use.

A bar of green tourmalines has clusters of three pearls at the top, bottom and at nd. THEIR EFFECTIVE USE IN SCHEMES OF TODAY. DRESS Color as an Element In Dress The Princess Robe Again a Favorite. Popnlar Pieces In the Display of Holiday Jewelry. Velvet is always worn at this season, but It seems now more than ever in favor.

Few materials are more lovely than the velours of today, and one cannot be surprised at the popularity of the different variations of this fascinating fabric. Nothing is more attractive than a gown of some hue specially chosen to suit the wearer or to match some jewel in her possession. One such gown in chiffon velours and heavy guipure embroidered in oxidized PRINCESS EVENING TOILET. silver and edged with silver lace la worn with an amethyst pendant on a platinum chain. A gown in an exquisite shade of red velvet rather a light tone, with a soft bloom upon its surface, will be accompanied by quaint old garnet ornaments.

The princess evening robe illustrated is of orange chiffon velours with sheath overdress of black embroidered net, stole fronts of Venetian lace, matching the band across the decol-Jetage, and it demands a carefully con-. atdered jewel scheme to harmonize in the striking color effect i Diamonds being more precious (as to price) than ever, jt is pleasing to note how the range' of colored stones In dress Is ever widening. Color, however, runs not in fashion this season, and therefore the brilliancy of jewels la but a natural sequence. Just a few pieces from among the dazzling holiday display are here shown. First is a lovely brooch of diamonds bow of fascinating form, a dainty specimen of the jewelers' art and an appropriate piece for any toilet Next Is a necklace of supreme elegance, with Its two pendants.

The two part rings of curious fash-Ion, especially the first, with its unusually cut stones in diamonds and sapphires, are possessions to be desired. The success of the directoire and princess models for gowns is an accomplished fact in Paris fashions, and not only for evening, but for day wear, this fashion of garments takes the lead. Parisiennes wear them with a charming grace, which is certainly equally within the capability of the HOLIDAY JEWELET. American up to date young woman Should she elect to practice elegance in place of strenuousness. The corselet skirt with short bolero is a form of princess that is particularly becoming to a tall, slight figure.

These corselet skirts finish high above the waist line, where, the bodice in front is arranged with a slight fullness, but by no means the pouch of a few seasons past A short bolero of lace for house wear or fur for outdoor gowns completes this style of costume. 1 AMY VARNTJM. i Nat Poultry Dressing.

An original scheme evolved by a certain tobacco merchant to Introduce his goods worked to the satisfaction of a physician to whom this dealer sent a box of cigars with a bill for $5 and an explanatory letter, which read: "Although you have not ordered these cigars, I take the liberty of sending them, feeling sure you will find them excellent." After the doctor had smoked the cigars, says the Medical Times and Hospital Gazette, he mailed five prescriptions to the tobacconist, with a note, saying: "Although you have not askeVJfor my professional advice, I 'take the liberty of sending you these prescriptions, feeling sure you will find them excellent." A Practical Husband. Surely the Monmouthshire man who caused his wife's wedding ring to be Inscribed, "If thee doesn't work, thee shan't eat," was determined that there should be no mistake in what he required In a wife.

618 The Puramt oi MappineM. The man who begins on Jan. 1 to seek bis own happiness is in a fair way to miss it altogether. Happiness is an elusive sprite. The more she is pursued the swifter she flies.

There Is doubtless for those who make pleasure their business a sort of gratification in their diversions, though it can scarcely be called happiness. Happiness is not the chief object of our existence. As Beecher once put it, "Man was not made to be everlastingly fiddled on by the fingers of joy." Character is the end of life. Happiness is incidental. Let a man look well to the ordering of life In its relation to other lives, seeking to make them happy, and be will find himself wearing the garland.

The marshal, the clerk, supervisor and mayor, The grizzled old settler, a great many more Iad found it a place for their tales sad or gayer The old cracker barrel that stood in the store. The old cracker barrel, The worn cracker barrel. The undusted barrel that stood In the store.

Inviting to rest in the heat of the summer, It spread a broad seat in tha grocery nook, Wculd you find the blacksmith, the tinner, the plumber, The printer, the painter, 'twas thsre you should look. And, oh, in the blizzards- days of the wln- tcr It oft interrupted a resonant snora By jabbing the one, who was tired with a splinter The old cracker barrel that stood io the store. Tha old cracker barrel. The dust covered barrel, -The heel battered, barrel that stood In the store. How dear to my heart to remember the barrel Alluring the lazy to sit there at easel My bouI is inspired to a crackery carol 'That flows with the breath of the odorous cheese.

I want to go back to the sleepy old vil- lage, To tread once again the dim pathways of yore, The grocer's dried beef case and cheese box to pillage AM lounge on the barrel that stood In the store. The old cracker barrel, The worn cracker barrel. The old cracker barrel that stood In the Store. W. D.
