THE CITIZEN, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, igia.
CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS. '
Qrat Skill Shown by the Coburg
From Coburg, Germany, a little rail
way only twonty-flvo miles long leads
Into tlio heart of the Thurlnglan forest
ranges, terminating nt LatiKchn, whero
Christmas ornaments are matlo. Near
ly every houso and hut Is the homo of
a glassblower, and tho smallest child
that can use Its hands undcrstnudlngly
has eoino part In tho work.
Tho hlowors make all their work
from glass tubes of variod dlnmctor
and thickness, 'Which are cut to con
venlent lengths by scratching them
with a flic and breaking them at tho
cleavago. A burner consisting of two,
four or more flamos issuing from tiny
ga Jets converged Its fires upon a
metal plate, which usually supports a
pleco of dry wood or chnrcoal whoso
slow but flcrco combustion under tho
bluo flnmo of tho blowpipes rapidly
melts tho hanlost glass. Driving tho
bollowB which supplies air to his blow
pipes with his feet, tho operator turns
out with deft swiftness balls, stars,
pendants and larger ornaments of al
most every conceivable shape nnd size.
His good wlfo Is perhaps Injecting a
spray of gilding or silvering solution
Into a great basketful of the tiny balls,
used to festoon windows and Christ
mas trees, or, perhaps, with greater
Skill is coloring with deft lingers tho
interior of a larger ornament.
The eldest. boy max hlmsnlf bo a
skilled operator nnd perhaps excels Ms
fathor in creating miniature reindeer,
with great spreading nntlors, spirited
horses, coursing hounds, fragile air
ships and balloons nnd, most wonder
ful of nil, roses, carnations, tulljw and
other llowora, each of whose parts is

And stretched her languid bones.
"Well, I'm sorry that It's Christmas.

For "change Is closed, and he won't make
