The talking doll of oir later holiday

rude and simple ancestry. We can
trace its history, with that of civiliza

the ivory figures of weathy Home. Ily
a comparison of customs among the
South sea, islanders, we mav satisfy
nit-selves that dolls were prized by
hildrcn in prehistoric times.
The daughter of the savage makes h r
iwn doll, and invests it with all tie
graces and charms of form ami dispo
sition. 1 ravelcrs tell us that the make-
ludieve child of the little savage oft -n
consists of nothing more nearly human
than an car of corn in tin husk, a long
gourd or a cueiimlier. or even, in cases
f extreme w ant, a tig leaf made into a
roll. This she s.Hithes and chides, and
sings to. and interests with stories of
her own telling.
The ivory doll of the Unman child
was too costly for the ages that fol

were the jointed wooden dolls of the
Nether'ands. These were known in
Kngland. and in this country, too, in
colonial times, as "Flanders babies."
These "Klemi-h lieauties" an de
scri'ied as having had "round black
heads, with a well-defined blush on
ither cheek.' They were of wood
from crown to toe. Their legs and
arms were jointed. The wig of brow n
hair was fastened to the head by a row
of iron tacks.
Dolls of the latest pattern an now
manufactured in great numbers in Kn
gland and in this country. Vet afcese
ountries still continue to nn-kirt some
f the cheaper kinds from Germany.
The extent to which dolls are manu
factured in Kngland may Ik judged from
the statement, made a few years ago in
the house of commons, that a manu
facturer had an order for five hundred
pounds sterling worth of dolls eyes.
In I''., in the state of New 1 ork and
