Jrby has gained eight votes, and c
the others have lost. It is not at all a
improbable that the next ballot will

.zeeds eighteen or twenty votes yet.

DesChamps and Dr. Woods voted for 1
Irby; Representative Richardson's t

as having voted.
THE WHISKEY DEVIL. I
Manning has suffered more from
the curse of whiskey drinking than
from all other evils combined. This
statement will be borne out by refer
ence to her past history, and there is
scarcely a homein the the town but c
bas felt the forked fangs of the veno
mons demon. Yet these people still
hug the deadly devil to their hearts,
refusing to lend encouragement to
any efforts to shackle the-mighty t)

orthepast few years, owing to the
active efforts of a Good Templars
lodge in this town, there has been less
whiskey drinking among our young
men than in any other country town
in the State. But for the past two
years this lodge has been disorgan
ized, and the effects of this disorgan
ization are perceptible. Mothers, fath

We give a few suggestions for mat
ing Christmas presents, and hope
they may be of benefit to some of our
readers, for often it is not the gift but
the thought whicb comes with it that
we value. Some piece of handiwork
from a dear friend is more prized than
a costly memento would be from one
who we feel gives becausc it is "the
fashion" or in return for or expecta
tion of a like favor. First we will tell
of a head rest we are making for a
very dear old lady friend: Make two
cushions exactly alike, each about
eight by thirteen inches filling with
cotton to the thickness of an inch.
Cover with dark red cashmere and
work with yellow floss a pretty open
design on one side. Procure sixteen
small brass rings, cover them with
double crochet, using yellow split
zephyr, tie a heavy tassel of the
zephyr in four of these, sew the re
maining twelve along one side of each
cushion at equal distances-a little
more than two inches-apart, lace to
gether with half-inch yellow ribbon,
or a cord and tassel of the zephyr,
letting the cushions hang two and
one-half or three inches apart, fasten
one of the ring tassels to each of the
four lower corners, and your head
rest is complete. For a Christmas
gift nothing is nicer, as it is very suit
able for any friend who may own a
Perhaps some may like to know
more about making these crochet
rings, which are used in fancy work
in a great many ways, and if pur
chased ready-made the cost is consid
erable. The rings used are the small
brass ones which may be bought fox
two or three cents a dozen at fancy
goods or harness stores. Rope linen,
silk, or even wool may be used in cov
ering tbem. Hold the ring between
thumb and forefinger of the left hand,
put the hook through the ring, catch
the thread and draw it under, forming
a loop over the needle; next, put the
hook over the ring, take up the thread
and draw it through the loop. Now,
with the book draw thread through
the ring, making two stitches on the
needle, take up the thread and draw
over the ring, through these two
stitches. Repeat until the ring is
covered. To form a tassel or fringe,
cut silk of the length and thickness
desired, put it through the ring, and
tie snugly on the outside, close to the
HANGING PocKET FoR GLAss.-DC
cidedly unique in the way of hanging
holders is this cylindrical pocket for
the safe keeping of glasses, and it
may be made so easily that one might
well affoid at this holiday season to
present one to every friend to whom
they would be of service. The model
was made of a remnant of broad
watered ribbon with a satin stripe on
each 'edge; it was a rich pansy-purple
in color, and the lining was of inex
pensive lining satin of a yeilow shade;
together they made a warm glowing,
bit of brightness.
Fur a foundation cut a piece of
card board six inches wide by ten
inches long, lay thelini ng-seven by
eleven inches-smoothly over one
side, fold the edges over to the other
side and baste them securely, draw
ing it very closely; baste the ribbon
on the other side and neatly overhand
the edges together all around with
fine silk; lap one end unevenly overI
the other, as shown, and tack them
together; take a round piecc of card
board that will just fit inside, cover it
on both sides with the satin, slip it
into position at the bottom of the
:ase, and fasten it in just where it
will allow the glasses to peep out at
the top so they be readily taken out
when wanted. On the overlaping
mnd (before putting together) em
aroider or paint "A safe eye-opener,"
mnd near- the top of the case pass a t
silk or chenille cord around and tie it
.n a knot at the back, and a few
.nches above the top tie it again in a
>ow with loops and ends.
Such holders about the house are
iot only convenient, but a positive v
iecessitv if one wvoald avoid being ~
:onstantly harassed by the provoking ~
:ropensity of all glasses to lose thenm- t
;elves when most urgently needed. s
