THE FUR HAT IS A WINTER FEATURE.
The huge fur turbans, as all the round, fur-brimmed shapes are called
now, set well down around the head, all but covering the hair, which is
arranged as low as possible to exaggerate the "pancake" effect. The pelt
of the turban must, of course, match the fur chosen for muff and neck
piece. Sometimes the trimming is a round cabochon of ribbon; sometimes
a huge, soft-petaled rose crushed into the fur, often, as in this case, there
is a crushed crown of velvet in one of the deep-toned new colors and a
bunch of uncurled ostrich feathers in the same shade.

it frequents to some extent parts of
Virginia nnd Maryland.
The wild turkey is a species alto
gether different from the domesticated
bird with the white meated brsast, for
which two New England states, Ver
mont and Khode Island, are famous
and which Is raised in small numbers
by many farmers in Worcester county.
One reason, and an important one,
according to Mr. Penniman, why it
should be preserved is that it is need
ed to contribute occasionally its hardy
blood, and gamy flavor to the domes
tic species by interbreeding. The more
or less dork meat of the breast of
many domestic turkeys marketed to
day is said to be due to such inter
breeding. The wild turkey is proverbially shy
and quite generally supposed to. be in
capable of domestication. This suppo
sition, however, is entirely erroneous.
according to the Boston man, who says
that as a matter of fact the bird is
naturally not much afraid of man,' but
rather inclined to sociability.
. In support of this claim Mr. Pennl
man points out that during its stay in
Massachusetts the wild turkey made

The wild turkey is prolific and takea

The large ones . range from . twenty-

as fifty pounds each, while those
weighing i under twenty-five pounds
would bring a higher price than the
domestic species because . of the dif

What the Bridegroom Resents.
Even the English language empha

'Then there's no adjective to de
scribe what pertains to the male half
of the affair. You can't speak of the

the other hand, 'bridal applies not
only to the possessions of the girl, but
to what relates to both of them equal

SHE FOl'M OUT ABOUT ST. NICK.
Many children had their firm belief
in Santa Claus shaken yesterday from
various causes, but few of them got to
the bottom of things as neatly as did
one little girl in the east end of the
city. Her mother had returned from
a shopping trip Thursday, when the
little girl approached her and very
earnestly proclaimed the fact that she
no longer believed in Santa Claus be
cause her uncle had told her all about
It, and now she knew just who Santa
was. She seemed so sure of what she
knew that her mother arrived at the
conclusion that her uncle really had
let the cat out of the bag, and so she
told the little gin all about it. When
she had finished her confession, the
daughter commenced a little giggle
which soon turned into a hearty, pro
longed laugh. . When she had quieted j
down enough to speak, it was learned
that she had been merely trying an
experiment end that her uncle had
told her nothing in regard to the ex
istence of Santa Claus. Her investiga
tion proved eminently successful, how
ever, and she hadto betaken into the
secret along wTth her elders.
SPOILED SAXTA ILLUSION.
Those who wish to surprise others
are often surprised themselves, and
that was true more than once yester
day and for several days preceding
Christmas. One mother in the city
ordered a charming large doll for her!
little daughter from one of the large
department stores and left minute dl-,
rectlons as to when it should be deliv
ered at the home. As luck would have
it, though, she was upstairs at the time
mother came down stairs she found
the little one in full possession of the
intended Christmas present and her il
lusions as to Christmas gone.

that there , must be good reasons why
so many thousands of people go to
California every year?
Even when the cost was greater,
the time required much longer and the
trip not entirely void of discomfort
thousands went. Because the manifold
attractions of the Golden State irresisti
bly drew them.
But now that the expense involved
is nominal, the time very short and the
journey most enjoyable, Calffornia has
