babbled forth her childish delight.
She told of "dear aunty" and how
Kind she had been to her, and left
him to run to a lady advancing from
another room Mary Benson.
The little one clinging to her, Mary
stood smilingly extending a welcom
ing hand to the amazed Dore. He
bowed his head and hid the grateful
tears that filled his eyes.
"Always the same kind, gentle
faithful to the last! You must have
sought Lois out."
"And if I did?" questioned Mary
softly, "do you not deserve all that
tribute, after your noble adherence
to duty?"
He could not let her go, and she
did not wjsh it Their love for the

CHRISTMAS TABLE DECORATION
By Biddy Bye
Hostesses who entertain often,
and who are continually in search of
"something new" with which to en
tertain bored social sets are planning,
this year, costly arrangements of
gorgeous fruits as decorations for
Christmas dinner tables. In so doing
they forget the high place which
tradition should have in all of our
great festivals.
Fruits belong to Thanksgiving, the
feast of the fields. , The Yuletide calls
for the greenery which lives out of
doors to midwinter. The traditional
use of the pines, the box and the
holly at Christmas and New Year
goes back to the ancients.
Tiny artificial pine, trees set in
sqpare boxes are a simple but always
desirable decoration for the Christ
mas table. '
More elaborate is a genuine Christ
mas tree of a size suitable for the
center of the table. It is loveliest
when lighted with tiny colored elec- ,
trie bulbs, and its proper fruit is, of
course, a favor for each guest
Cranberries and popcorn strung in
garlands make a cheap decoration
reminiscent of primitive New Eng
land frugality which, on account of
the H. C. L. is not at all out of place
at the present time.
A new idea is to suspend a shallow
ivy covered basket by ropes of green
from the ceiling to within six inches
of the tabled From it tiny ropes trail
off to each cover. After the feast,
guests laim,the treasure which is to
be found at the basket end of each
rope.
