ft-ALOONA (lewa) ADVANCI MONDAY, OIC. 1», Ifil "INK in my VEINS' •y MARIAN INMAN Little Mr. Eleven O Six is with us. He is our very special Christmas gift. Six pounds, six ounces, born to Phil and Dolores at 11:06 p.m., on December first. On next Sunday, December llth, he will be baptised, Richard John. 1 visited with Dolores one evening this past week and saw him through the nursery window, a perfect little fellow with dark wavy hair, sound asleep with one tiny hand under a little cheek. Hew I longed te take him up in my arm* but 'of course I mutt wait until he comes home and then will have to be _ careful net to spoil him. Oh, he Is a dandy/ my twenty-third grandchild, and at extra special at they all are. Next Sunday I plan to have the first of my Christmas parties. The one for the grown ups with the four oldest granddaughters to help me host. Then the following week I'll have a party for the smaller grandchildren, a sort of traditional affair and one they really hold me to. Lots of work but so much fun. Make the most off the Chrittmat seaton, it it tuch a special time. Never let it be a burden instead of a joy. Always keep joy'and youth in your heart and make the mott of little things, for Christmas is net a feast ef riotous spending but the celebration off the birthday ef Christ the King. Make tt that and your days will be filled with joy. Phil's four oldest children have been with me much of this time when Mother was welcoming little Richard John and have been helping me make Christmas eggs, lovely ones with angels, Christmas flowers and little manger scenes. Each one lovelier than the one before. They have real good ideas and nimble fingers. Soon Mother will be home and they will again be a little happy family surrounding the new little brother with love. The children and I have dene a good deal ef reading and the tort ef reading hat ranged from what interettt ton year eldt to age five and children and grandmother tee love nursery rhymes and riddles. Everybody knewt the popular Mother Oooae rhymes which meant so much to °ut in our childhood dayt and ttill charm children today, but did you "luiew that Mother Goose was.a real person and net just an imaginary name'given to a collection of nursery rhymes? There is nothing imaginary about her. She was born in Boston in 1665 and her maiden name was Elizabeth Foster. She married Isaac Vergoose, otherwise known as Goose) 1692 and lived to the advanced age of ninety-two years. The nursery rhymes bearing her name were composed by her for the entertainment ef her grandchildren. They were collected and published in Boston in 1719 by her son-in-law, Thomas Fleet, and have come down to us under the name of Mother Goose rhymes. Perhaps she's not as great as Walt Whitman, Edgar Allan Poe, Emerson and many others, but more people have read her works than the readers of all these literary geniuses combined, so we offer our praise to her and I know that children join in the cheers. We have been telling our children to acquire a broad knowledge as it it often difficult to tell what kind of know* ledge will be most important to them. Then I happened to read this story which' illustrates this point. There was an Irishman named Murphy who came to this country and got himself a job driving a garbage wagon. By hard work, Murphy elevated himself to contractor and owner of three garbage scows. One da/, because he wet threatened with a suit by Jersey authorities for totting garbage into the bay. Murphy went down to the scene en one ef hit scows to help prepare his defense. He slipped and fell into the bay and drowned. One of his pals, who came here from Ireland with him, went to the wake and expressed sympathy to the widow. "I suppose." the pal said, "he left you well fixed. I certainly hope he did." "Yes," Mrs. Murphy replied, "to be exact, he left $160,000." "$160,0001" boomed the pal. "And he could neither reed nor write." "Nor swiml" added Mrt. Murphy sadly. The petals from my birthday roses from niy daughter Mary Fran are dried and are now a part of my friendship pot- pour-ri. I started this some years ago as a way to save petals from the many corsages given me. and I add to it from time to time. Each fall I make several small ones for gifts and each one to. whom I have given one is delighted. Had a letter the other day from a friend at Carroll. Iowa who wants my recipe to send to her brother who lives in Arlington, Virginia and raises roses year round. I have developed my own formula from several basic recipes and from my experience over the years. I am not a perfume person but I do enjoy the gentle fragrance of a pot-pouri-ri. I love to open mine when 1 am reading or sewing or viewing TV. The lovely fragrance makes me remember the beauty and freshness of the flowers when they were given to me on many special occasions. Are you writing a little message en your Christmas cards? Do so and you give much pleasure. It deet take a little extra time but your friends will lave you for it. It is another of these little things for Christmas, giving which have no material cost but which give joy and pleature. Our year 1966 is drawing to a close. Soon we will be looking back and thinking over some of the things we did this year. That is fine if we can gain some lesson from looking back. If not we best look forward and make the most of each day. A little looking back and much looking forward will be our role as we enter into January, the month named after the god Janus who is pictured with two faces, one looking back and one looking forward. See you next week. •Frigidaire • Maytag •Monarch SALES ft SEIVICE BEED HARDWARE & APPLIANCE Holiday pirty text week for Wesley C.I.A. Wesley—The annual C.D.A.
