Christmas Afternoon to Bring
Together Residents of 'Cross
River Town
The people of Camp Hill will not
need to seek diversion Christmas
afternoon for the men of the town
have invited everybody to a Camp
Hill community event, to be held in
the auditorium of the High school.
The hall will be elaborately decorated
in keeping with the Christmas sea
son and an interesting program is
being arranged for the entertain
ment of the women and children
who will be the guests.
Since Christmas Day is a time of
particular joy for the kiddies, a spe
cial feature has been planned for
their pleasure. From 2 to 3 o clock
there will be moving pictures espe
cially for them, followed by dan
cing and a general social time from i
3to 6 o'clock for the older folk. |
The Updegrove full orchestra has
been engaged to play and many plans
are under way which will not be dis
closed until the guests arrive at the
hall that day. Needless to say, no
one in Camp Jllll will flnd time drag
ging Christmas afternoon as has
often occurred in years gone bv. In
deed the hours will be so crammed
full of pleasant things that no
thought will be given to seeking
something to do.
The committee, which comprises
C K. Deen, George Cook and Charles
Goodman, is not only planning to
make this Christmas commvnity
party an unqualified success, but is
already plotting to stage a similar
event 'each Christmas day.

eral "athletic stunts" joined in by
the guests and an old-fashioned
game of parlor croquet created lots
of fun.
Supper was served in baskets con
taining enough for two, and the
young men chose their partners by
gay Christmas ribbons attached to
cards on the basket handles.

Furs and Mystery
By Fred Is. Harry
When you buy furs, it. is well to
invest in them, rather than to spec
ulate. There's a marked difference
between the two.
Whenever a fur piece is greatly
underpriced, there is a reason for it,
and do not permit the dealer fo tell
you that it's because the weather is
warm or because you're a favored
customer, or any such tomfoolery.
Find out why!
Take fox skins, for example. A
legitimate fur dealer may show you
a fine large muff and throw, made
from fine peltries of unusual size,
and quote you a very fair price on
Before you purchase, you remem
ber that So-and-So, around the cor
ner are having a heavily advertised
Sale. You decide, as is your priv
ilege, to go and see what they are
offering. Fine!
But they are all ready for you
and show you a set at a lower price j
and apparently identically the same j
as you were looking at in the legiti- |
mate store, but which is really ;
worth only half as much.
"Sour grapes?" Not so—here is I
the little darkie In the woodpile. j
An unscrupulous furrier can take |
a very small fox skin, or most any |
other kind of peltrie, and expand it
to about twice its size, but its in- :
trinsic value does not expand ac- |
The skin is laid face downward |
and slit many, many times down the |
wider part by cuts about half an
inch apart and running parallel to |
each other. Common sheep skin j
strins are then cut and inserted in
these slits and sewed along each j
edge, making the back look like a |
Mrd'e-eye view of a freight yard, al- i
though the deception cannot be de
tected on the fur side owing to the
great density of the fur.
When such a piece is made into !
a muff or throw, the padding and j
the lining prevent one from feeling |
the many seams Inside the skin, but j
If you will press the piece hard be- 1
tween the two hands and rub slow- I
ly, you will have the sensation of i
passing your Angers over a silken !
covered wnsh board.
So. after all. you And that the :
genuine article In the honest man's ,
store represented true value, while
•be "special reduction" was no re- '
Auction at all —but decidedly an In- !
Use rare to shun the nntmal that '
"grows" to twice its size after it is I
killed, and—
