The accident happened when the car in which they were riding skidded into a ditch and crashed against a culvert. It was reported that Mr. Mandler, driving east, swerved to avod a collision with another cur which had slowed down in front of him. Paul was the sou of Mr. and Mrs. Christ Mandler, and was born in Bloomington, 111., January 29, 1888. He married Nellie Chancy on January G. 1SU2, who preceded him in death two years ago.

The oldtime dolls were furnished with underwear that didn't come off. + * * * Tho "Insldes" of the old-time dolls were composed entirely of sawdust, and there were no soft rubber dolls to take almost any abuse. A child had to be careful, or the head of the doll would be broken.

The desire to see how it works is nearly uncontrollable sometimes, but grown-up dignity forbids and there is more pressing business at hand. But it would be fun to start and stop the electric trains by remote control, to wind up this doo-dad and that dingle-binny and the hootnanny and sec them go through their mechanical tricks. * * * * Time not so long ago there was no such a. thing as an. electric train, and the boys of those days were goggle-eyed at mechanical trains that sped rapidly round and round a circular track.

There is nothing that causes a wild desire to fight against things-as- they-are as much as a child at this time of the year without even the simpler joys of chidlhood. It is such an appeal that loosens the purse-strings of hard-bitten city- bred businessmen when .the Community Chest needs be filled. * * # * There Is a definite pleasure to be derived from just sitting with memories, letting thoughts fly backward to pleasure hours of triumph. While age gives way to youth in activity, still there is the greater compensation of memory, hours of happiness, purchasable through a trifling sum In comparison. This is a good Christmas. Nearly everyone, on the farm or m town, has sufficient to observe the customs properly.

Tho ads are filled witb. things of interest, descriptions that bring back memories, or raise hopes that maybe, if worked just right, this or that much-desired article will be reserved by a kind Santa for a particular one of his deserving. —D.

Then there was the big stock of toys laid in by 'the late George Paine when he had his drug store on the south side of the streot j where a grocery store is now lo- i catod. Those toys were ihe eyeful of I for all of the kids in town, including some who wore long pants and a mustache. But the dnzzlers of those days would not get a look today. * * * * There were no airplanes, no busses, no trailers and trucks. . There were simpler things like skates, both ice and roller, sleds, skiis. and rack on rack of dolls of various shapes and designs, all with idealized faces and golden or and weave a net of contentment. Because memory is kind, and does not bring the defeats and the heartbreaks of childhood and youth, always a more or less tragic period of near frustration. * * * * This custom of Christmas is amply justified on grounds other than through religion. The exchange of gifts, the thoughts in an otherwise thoughtless world, of relatives and friends, engendered by the selection of the "present," and the resultant feeling of friendliness of both participants is right and good. It's not always the gift that matters. There is perhaps no greater tonic for an ailing ego than to give a friend an unexpected gift, and catch the glow that can be won in no other way. The remembrance need not b© big or expensive or particularly useful. There's no one immune to a pleasure at being remembered.
