Christmas off tho pages of tho December
With -tho exception of one special class,
tho magazines and w'cckltcs nro reticent
nbout Christmas, ns though they wero try
ing to kcop It secret.
Several magazines print "Christmas Num

stories Illustrated with startllngly realistic
photographs. Tho weeklies lgnoro Friday
Thoro Is Just ono class of magazine which
revels In Christmas covers and tho old holi

devoted to womon nnd children. Tho Homo
and Youths' and Women's Companions and
Journals brim with Yulctldo stories nnd gift

aro fairly redolent of plum pudding and
Christmas greens. Tho Women's Home
Companion prints on Its cover In conspicu
ous red letters, "Ono Thousand Christmas
Ideas" a sum so vast that, like a billion
silver dollars, It Is Inconceivable.
As though bildglng tho gap between tho
frankly Blmple homo magazines nnd tho
moro sophisticated magazine about town,
Harper's Bazar and Vogue present a com
promise attitude. They have devised a pop-ulat-and

A December Morn
Vogue tefers, with Its usual whimsicality,
to tho "Do Your Xmas Shopping Early"
propaganda, so conscientiously urged by its
moro serious-minded sisters (1):
On Christmas Day tho usual soft blanket
of snow had descended, and the crisp cheery
air had nipped every one's noso to a bright
pink. Nevertheless, tho virtuous one, who
had taken time by his longest forelbck and
had dono his Christmas shopping during hlB
vacation at Atlantic City In August, pre
sented his daughter with a bathing suit, his
wife with a sunshade and his son with a
pair of white flannel trousers.
The Metropolitan has a pseudo-Christmas
editorial entitled "Peace and Good Will."
(2) The editorial soon leaves Its title, how
ever, to predict the Inevitability of war and
to take a side shot at Mrs. Pankhurst and
the I. W. W's.
"Ridiculous efforts, not becausb they in
volved force, but because they Involved so
little force." In tho paragraph beginning
"We should not overlook the great progress
which has been made In this country In the
last few years," a third of the column Is
devoted to congratulating tho country on
the fact that tho Metropolitan has doubled
Its circulation In the last 30 months, and In
spite ot having indorsed a safe and sane
brand ot socialism.
The Flvo and Ten-Cent Store Magazine
has Its own Individual angle toward the
holidays, as, for Instance, In Trade Tips (3):
Keep out tho face chamois. They are
bought for gifts, being trimmed with fine
vaj. lace. Owing to the war thore Is already
a noticeable demand for boys' guns. Pistols
and drums. Keep this in mind and feature
them. Do not let the other fellow get the
Sunday school teachers' business. Secure
their names through the pastors ot the
churches and send them personal letters to
come In, whether or not you give them a
discount. It Is un to you to show them
these little courtesies, and you are bound to
get some extra business.
William Dean Ilowells, taking his ease In
the "Editor's Easy Chair" of Harper's
Monthly (4), writes with his own delightful
charm ot the Boston custom ot burning
candles In the windows of the old arlstp
cratlo Beacon Hill houses on Christmas Eve,
while groups ot waits stroll past, singing
In Boston you need not say The Hill with
large letters, as It Is printed here; it you say
The Hill at all you mean Beacon Hill.
One heard Incredulously some rumors be
fore the hallowed season, and one scarcely
believed In It when it actually came to pass
and people began lighting the candles in their
windows. One rather dreads the beautiful
whan It appears In a very voluntary form,
lest It should turn out prettlnesa; but when
the candles began to twinkle In the windows
of those stately old Mount Vernon street
houses, and the leas stately, but not less
charming houses ot Chestnut street and
Plnckney and Loulsburg Square. X felt that
the promise of beauty wquld be kept and
the spirit ot Christmas would come to Bos
ton as angelically as if there had never been
centuries ot Puritanism to cast It out as an
evil demon. Arch after arch, the rows of
candles were kindled on the Hill last Christ
mas Bve, till the whole street glittered ten
derly in the evening air.
We waited patiently for the carols to be
gin, not Impatiently, but merely wondering,
when alt at once they began, though Just
where on the Hill I could not say. They ut
tered love, worship, pity, hope, something
wild, mystical past Imagining. The dim air
lent Itself to the effect, and the moving and
pausing crowd, blaok under the vague trees
was our modernity remanded to the condi
tions of the race's younger life. In tUe pauses
of the singing we followed the waits, and
stopped when they stopped, and. ltstaftid
again till they came again to their sweet cry

Inaugurating a fund to send them each n
gift on Christmas morning "something that
would be useful nnd of permanent value."
This Is an excellent scheme, and wo may
feel assured that tho Princess and her ad
visers .will only choose such articles as will
really minister to tho comfort of tho soldiers
and sailors; nnd that they will havo tho or

To Stand and Walt
Art article by Catherlno Van Dyke, "What
This Christmas Means to tho Womon of,
Europo" (7), perhaps gives us the best sense
of tho desolation that this holiday season
must only servo to deepen. Sho writes:
This month will be d strange Christmas to
CdeStO and her ll.lbv. ta 'Mara MnHn nn1
Babetto and little Nanon. There will bo no Pwf
Christmas stocking for them. Many will i a
strango Christmas to all the stricken women
of Europo. Though she keep her loved ones
closely to her, not the most alien farm woman
in tho United States but will hear, vibrating
through her Christmas cheer, the sobs of
her sisters. Theirs will be tho saddest Christ
mas tho world has over known, for never
before have so many faces been missing from
lands where tho Yule log has been so loved.
While tho soldiers of Europe aro divided
Into many camps, the women of Europo will
have but one country Christmas night; it is
Gods acre. Softly tho chimes will ring out
this holy night. To the warrior they will
ring messages of hope In victory or surcease
in suffering. To thq women, not only of Eu
rope but also of the world, thcao Christmas
bells will ring out one great message which
the dead have given us-On Earth, Peace,
Good Will to men.
