Gingerbread boys arc always baked
for the ehddren ut holiday time in
Hungary. Currants make features, and
buttons, but here uvain no frosting is
used. Small sugar cakes belong to the
little folks too.
1 Before Christmas, cakes are placed
on the table, and are eaten and replac
ed, until after Christmas. Such gener
One of the large cakes Is the famous
"Toite." It reaches twelve layers
high, just think of it. The layers are
very thin, though, and their filling is
made of chocolate and butter. The top
layer is covered with burnt sugar. Oh,
yum. Walnut enke is another of these
larger delicacies made in a long flat
loaf. It! principle distinction is its
walnuts cooked in milk and honey.
These come in all shapes, variously
decorated, sometimes Vith nuts, nl
laid over the top of
Die nan. After it is
baked, powdered rugar is (shaken over
it. At last it is served, cut in very
thin squares on account of its rich
ness. A fruit cake baked like a loaf of
bread is one of the Christmas lovs in
Sweilen. It is called "Yule Kake."
Similar to it is the German "Stollen."
This is a large cake heavily frosted,
and rolled over like a parkerhousc
roll. U contains Fpices, citron, raiains
Of course, in Germany, Christmas
jut must 'have its "I'feflermuss," a
tiny gingerbread cake coated with
powdered suar. "Matzepan" is a very
rick cake. "Lebkuchrn," honey cookie-:
are natural companions to the ginger
cakes. Little almond cakes, made of
almost paste come in all Forts of
shapes. Stars there are, carrots, balls,
baskets, and many other fanciful designs.
A ppecial meat dish for Christmas is
a loaf made of pork, which is allowed
to jell. It is called "Sulze" and is
served cold in slices, with parsley.
In England there appears the good
mince pie and its great friend, the
plum pudding. In Dickon's day, alas,
no longer can it be served in this man

On the Nebraska national forest,
near Halsey. over ten sections have
been planted to trees by the U. S.
forest service. On some sites on un
usually high survival of trees has
been secured, and here the trees are
too thick for the host growth of the
stand. 'In 1920, for the first time,
thinnings were made in plantations
of Jack pine and the trees removed
were sold for Christmas trees. This
year a larger number of trees are be
ing thinned out and sold for the
Christmas season, and an opportunity
is here presented for a permanent in
dustry in Nebraska, whereby people
of the state can secure their trees
locally instead of being compelled to
fhlp them from Minnesota and Colo
The receipts from the sale of tim-
ber and from grazing on the national
forests go into the United States ;
treasury, and by congressional act
23 per cent of these funds are turned !
over to the school f unds of the coun- j
ties within which the forests are lo- j
cated, and an additional 10 per eenti
is made available for ror.d building!
within the forests . From this it is
evidonl that the cutting of Christmas ,
trees may he done without detriment j
to our forests, if handled properly.
In fact, regulated cutting is a bless
ing o dense stands of young trees;
and that money paid to Uncle Sam
for Christmas trees cut on national
forests eventually returns to the peo-

alarm expressed by many people be
cause of the cutting of so many young
trees for this purpose.
It is estimated that ten million
young trees are used annually during
the Christmas holidays throughout
the United States. Most of these
trees come from private lands, the
owners cutting every, tree suitable
for Christmas uses regardless of the
future' value of the stand of timber,
which is a needless and destructive

"The U. S. forest service is permit
ting the cutting of young trees for the
holiday season in such a manner as
to be beneficial to the forests, and
advocates this method on private
land. In many places the young
trees come in so thickly, following a
good seed year, that they interfere
with each other and the best devel
opment of the stand. With forest
trees, just as with farm crops of
corn or beets, the most rapid growth
and the finest trees for saw logs and
railroad ties are produced if den?e
stands are thinned. Many areas have
from 3.000 to 11,000 young trees Bix
to ten feet high per acre, and the re
moval of all but 1,000 to 1,500 well
spaced trees will be of great value to
