It i rW vcsc!a -A
No Gift More Acceptable Than Candy
If It Be Mc Cullough's

is 'often more of the
real Christmas spirit that
will o' the wisp we prate
about and rarely come upon
in the gift of a hem
than in that of a cut glass berry bowl.
Who has not felt a teary sort of
-warmth about the cockles of one's
heart ivhen the removal of dainty
mappings discloses a little gift, no
matter how simple, that has been
fashioned by the loving fingers of a
friend? One pictures her sitting in
the glow of the lamplight, perhaps,
embroidering kindly thoughts into the
bit of work she holds in her hands.
One knows she has given many min
utes 'of her busy life, which is like a
gift of gold in these days of stress
The wise woman will have turned to
account the summer afternoons on the
piazza and the results of her "pick-up"
work will provide many simple little
gifts. The woman "whose pocketbook
will not meet the demands of her gen
erosity should be able to contrive
many charming remembrances if she
is wilHng to give a little time and util
ize materials she may have at hand.
If one embroiders well there is no
end to the useful gifts that mar be
made from a yard or so of linen.
There are the linen napkin rings,
which may be made for each member
of the family if one wishes. These
are made of fine linen which should
be folded double in a band about three
inches wide, and long enough to en
circle the napkin. On one end is the
button and on the other, which is cut
in a point, is the buttonhole. When
these a?e embroidered with a mono
gram or a spray of flowers, starched
stiff and buttoned over a dainty card
they make a most acceptable gift
An embroidered candle shade
mounted on a wire frame, which has
been covered with thin silk the color
of the boudoir for which it Is Intended,
would be appreciated by the woman
who has the "washable" hobby.
An attractive tray may be made by
having an embroidered centerpiece
framed in a plain wood frame. The
back should be covered 'with felt, and
brass handles may be added to the
frame if wished.
From linen crash may be made a
neat covering for the contents of a
suit-case, either bound about the
edges with braid or finished with scal
lop embroidery and having a mono
gram in one corner. Then there is an
infinite variety of bags which may be
made from linen or crash or cretonne,
from the delicately embroidered, lace
trimmed corset bag to the sturdy
kitchen bag for string, or dust cloths,
A most inexpensive gift is crochet
buttons. These may be all the same
size or in assorted sizes. The wooden
molds are first covered with white
linen over cotton cloth, and then the
crochet circle of the proper size fitted
over them. They should be caught on
to a dark green card which might have
a Christmas greeting painted on in
The jabot will be an appreciated
gift again this season as its popularity
has not seemed to wane in the least
These are most acceptable in any
form, either having the tailored effect
of hemstitching and" tucks, primly
scalloped edges and tiny buttons, or
the fluffy, frilly charm of fine laces
and dainty embroideries.
' The baffling "man problem" may
be solved- by the useful shirt 'bag
which will be a joy forever tothe man
1 J .1 fYM.2. ?. ma ffvAn
j Wiiu Ucivtuti. uxa ia uiauc ui uucu
crash, or any similar material, cut like
a great envelope which should be
large enough to contain four to six
shirts as they are folded. The flap of
the bag may be cut to a point or have
rounded corners and should button
over. The bag may be bound with
braid or worked -with a buttonhole
stitch about the edge, and have a mon
ogram in the corner.
The woman who likes to knit will
enjoy making knitted reins for some
child. These are made so as to slip
over the neck of the child like a har
ness and if trimmed with numerous
little bells will be a great delight
They may also be made from ribbon.
The ribbon hoops for the baby, also
with their tiny tinkling bells, may,
quite as well, be covered with bright
knitted yarn. Another gift for the
baby Is a chamois ball. This is made
from pieces of chamois cut about the
size and shape of the sections of an
orange and crocheted together after
the edges have been buttonholed.
When this is stuffed with cotton It
makes a soft, pretty ball.
Another gift for his small highness
which his mother will also appreciate
and his father will borrow when he
has the toothache, is the tiny hot
water bag which has been covered
with a crocheted bag or one made of
A thoughtful little gift for the work
bag is the scissors protector. Cover
a cork with crochet of colored silk and
crochet a chain by which It may be
attached to the work bag. Then when
the scissors are not in use the point
may be stuck into the cork, instead of
boring holes in the contents of the
bag as they have a way of doing.
If one is anything, of an artist,
Christmas shopping Is robbed of its'
terrors, for the things that may be
made from hand-tinted silks or hand
decorated paper are legion. "There are
the delightful Empire shades for the
bedroom lamp, and the smaller shades
for the candle 'or electric drop-light
Por the lamp shade one can get the
wire frame -very cheaply. It is best to
V . . .t
fit a pattern to it carefully before cut
ting into the water-color paper which
is to be used for the shade. The
shade itself can then be cut all in one
piece. The edges may be finished
with passepartout tape and-the decora
tions should consist of medallions of
paper in two contrasting shades, one
above the other, with a silhouette, if
possible, in the center, or a group of
small figures cut from some old print
About the medallions should be
painted 'delicate sprays of leaves, or if
one is not able to paint, wreaths may
be cut from wall papers of appropriate
More expensive and elaborate shades
have thin silk shirred over the frames
with a finish at the top and bottom of
tiny roses made from ribbon. Another
idea for the bedroom gift is the coloni
al pincushion. Buy one or the inex
pensive glass candlesticks in colonial
design. Cut a small square of card
board, perhaps, about four inches
square, and cover one side neatly with
cretonne. Form a mound-like cushion
of cotton on the other side and cover
with the cretonne. Then fasten the
cushion on top of the candlestick by
fine wires or thread and sew around
the edges of the cushion about a two
inch fringe of white beads. You will
have a most quaint unique cushion.
Sets of heavy white envelopes in the
corner of which have been painted
sprays or wreaths of blossoms .may
contain all sorts of "helps around the
house" such as rubber bands, labels
for fruit jars or medicines, choice
recipes, -and also sachet powders, and
a dozen or so dinner cards all deco
rated for use. For the school girl an
envelope bearing the words "Sweet
Sixteen" could contain sixteen tested
recipes for candy.
Attractive buckles may be made
from padded ovals orcircles of card
board covered with velvet or silk and
having a simple design worked out in
jet beads, or tiny jewels. A sillc cord
-may be fastened through the center of
the buckle and tie buckle then
threaded onto a soft ribbon orJ3ash.

Two Adjoining Stores Also
Owned by Mahonej' Are
Deming, N. M Dec 17. The bard
ware department of Mahoney's store,
opposite the postoffice, was entirely
destroyed by fire late yesterday. The
fire originated from a defective flue.
The tinshop, located in the rear of the
j large building, was saved. All records
i and books were safely taken care of
before the roof fell in. The building
was a frame structure and had been
used for the past 25 years. The furni
ture department was saved by closing
he steel doors leading from the hard
ware store. Showcases were carried to
the street, together with other articles,
before the roof fell in.
The amount of the loss cannot be
ascertained until an invoice has been
made. The building and stock were
both fully covered by Insurance. i
The work of the Deming fire depart
ment, assisted by citizens, -was excel
lent. The absence of any wind during
the progress of the fire made it pos
sible to save the surrounding buildings.
