PRETTY CHRISTMAS TABLE.
An Old Fashioned Party For the Chil
dren. Tho arrangement of a table at a
rnletido party was quite unusual, in
asmuch as It was an old fahtoned
square one, lengthened to accommo
date twelve children. It was pushed
back against the wall, and at the back
was the largest sized Yule log candy
box, resting on a bed of holly and mis
tletoe. On top of the log was a doll dressed
as a Jester, called the "Lord of Mis
rule," and attached to the front end
of the log by red ribbons were six
dolls dressed to represent the first six
months of the year. Following after
the log were six more figures dressed
like the last six months. At oach plate
were a hoUy paper covered born ami a
wee tree lit with red wax tapers.
The children were to blow out tho
candles, making a wish for each one.
If they go out with the very first puff
the wish will come true. A white and
red Christmas ribbon poo to each

For those who want their plum pud

may prove useful:
Take one-half pound of finely shred

dried currants, three-fourths of n pound
of stoned raisins, four tablespoon fills
of dried and sifted breadcrumbs, three
tablespoonfuls of wnrm sifted Hour,
five ounces of loaf sugar, three eggs,
three ounces of shredded citron, ouc
half nutmeg grated and n teaspoon

Tills pudding keeps; admirably, nnd
when It Is not to bo used for some
time it should bo loiled, say, for six
hours and then hung from a hook In
the storeroom until about to be used,
when it should again be placed In tho
pan and boiled for an hour and a half
or two hours longer.
It may be boiled In a mold, a baulu
or a cloth and must bo kept in which
ever is chosen until ready to be served.
has a store and window full of distinctive
Ghristmas Gifts. Distinctive, because
they are entirely different. The price is
not cheap but very reasonable.
WHY should a share of your Ghristmas gifts
be purchased at Rowland's ?
A Mean Holiday Spirit.
Do not gauge your Christmas giving.
There Is nothing more despicable than
to work off the back numbers or tho
shabby, useless gifts on tho girl who
"needs everything" and spend a small
fortune on those who can spend on
The hoar of time where tho frost's Bray
In fantastic glamour lies;
A sheen of Urht on the glcam'ng white
That mirrors the spangled skies;
A great cold star In the heavens afar
And a moon trail on the hills;
Tho earth Instilled with an awe fulfilled
And tho night with music thrilled.
The carolers sing as the church bells ring.
Whllo up In the organ loft
The sage owls croon as tho calm, sweet
Comes swelling, but ever soft.
The message flies through the changing
By changing time and tongue.
But ever the samo as the tale that came
The shepherd men among.
Where! the mlitletoe and the laurel bough
And the holly nnd bay are twined.
Where the hearth flro gleams as In an
One age Is but In mind.
As In modern dreams the hearth fire
B, under the casement still.
The carolers sing as the tower tongues
Man's peace and God's good will.
