Several Useful Aprons.

There used to be carols ol various kinds,
giich as Welsh summer carols and winter
carols, and we even yet have what are
called Easter carols. Generally speaking,
however, the carol is a Christmas hymn,
for a carol is a song concer ting the birth
of Christ. The word itself is of old French
origin. A carole was orig nally a kind of
dance, accompanied by sinking. The name
was transferred to the song, and so became
the title of a vocal performance.
In the good old days of C'ueen Elizabeth
the simple melodious carols of our time
would have been regarded as unworthy of
consideration, for all music had to lie con
structed according to the ir tricate laws of
counterpoint, and to compoie a carol prop
erly required all the skill of some such
learned pundit as Dr. William Hyrd, gen
tleman of the chapel royal, or his teacher,
Thomas Tallis, who once v. rote a composi
tion in thirty voice parts. Now most of
our carols are the Christmas hymns of the
Sunday school, and a bund ly school carol

L-early meets in the back. The wide and
high bib is fulled into a band at the top,
and is held in place by a bias shoulder
strap, piped with blue, that begins at the

of the bib in front with buttons and button
holes. The skirt of the apron, instead of
being gathered into the usual band, has a
band that is shaped like a pointed yoke in

The Christmas carols originated prob
ably in the songs sung bt-tv.-een the scenes
of the mystery or miracle p ays of the Mid
dle Ages. These plays were the popular
form of religious entertai lmeut, and be
tween the scenes it was ci istomary to in
troduce songs dealing with the redemption
f mankind. These songs niiturally enough
became fixed in the popular memory, and
served as a kind of religions folk song to
those who had learned them. In all prob
ability (though this is a conjecture of the
writer's) the first "waits" were simple
country folk who had learned nativity
songs at the mystery play, and repeated
them at home at Christmas-tide. "Waits,"
the reader will remember, are bands of
rustic singers who sing car Ms at night in
English country towns in the Christmas
In King Henry VII's time and subse
quently the choir of the Chapel Hoyal was
required to sing Christina carols for the
sovereign. That was probably the royal
idea of improving on the "waits" custom.
There are several carols bj William Hyrd
still extant. The French nave a form of
Christmas carol called Noel, which re
sembles the carol of Byrd's time in its ar
tistic elaboration. The ma-.t famous of all
carols is that which begins with the famii
God rest you, merrie gentlemen.

This is set with a noble old fashioned
hymn tune that bids fair to live forever in
England. Oxford men have another old
favorite, "Caput apri defe o." known as
the Hoar s Head carol, which has long j
oeen preservea as one ot the choice sonys
of the great university.
The merrymaking of the Christmas sea
son has for centuries been a national insti
tution in England, and it is for that reason
that we Americans find more interest in
English Christmas carols t uiu in those of
nations with whose customs we are less
familiar. I!ut in both Uerai-iny and France
the popular festivities at "hristmas time
are worthy of. study, and nrion.
singing of svmgs appropriate to the occa
sion is a salient feature. After all the
practice of singing carols is simply an out
come of the ancient custcm of intoning
poems to Haechus and Cer -s nt the feasis

Lists of People's Names
"We frequently have demands made
upon us for lists of names that we are abso
lutely unable to fill," said a member of one
of the business address companies of the
"It is, of course, an easy matter for us to
supply the names and addresses of nearly
every man engaged in any particular pro
fession or calling in the country. We esti
mate that we can furnish about 600,000
names, if any one should want that num
ber. It has, of course, been the work of
years to collect these, and then they need
frequent revision to bring them up to date.
"The orders that we are unable to fill are
such as these: One day a man came in
here and asked me calmly enough for the
address of all the redheaded men in the
eourtry. Of course I was unable to help
him, for there is no means known to me of
collecting such information.
"The man's reason was that he desired
to send circulars recommending a hair
bleach that he claimed would, without in
jury to the capillary growth, act chemical
ly upon the pigment and turn the same a
dark brown. He assumed, of course, that
red haired men were all sensitive of the
fact, and would, if they could without in
jury, change its natural shade.
"That is but one of several cases," con
tinued the man. "For instance, we have
had an application for the names of all men
having suffered amputation of the limbs.
This came from a dealer in a newly pat-
! ented composition for artificial limbs. A
i manufacturer of glass eyes once sent in for

An Ideal Sleeping Room.
What shall we put into our sleeping
room ? Nothing t hat cannot le cleansed or

have neither paint nor paper on its walls.
The woodwork will lie of hard wood, fin

walls should be finished in bard plaster
and tinted; then they can be easily cleaned.
The windows will be low and of largo size,
to let in all the sun and air possible. The
floor will be of hard wood, oiled or var

day. There will be a fireplace, where a

dust. Stuffed chairs, lounges and woolen
hangings will not find a place here. A set

The Sneezing Superstition.
The custom of snying "God bless you!"
when a person sneezes dates from the time
of the Patriarch Jacob. The rabbis say
that prior to the time wher. Jacob lived a
man never sneezed but once the shock
consequent was certain death. When
Jacob came on thesceue he interceded with
the Master and obtained a relaxation of
this rigid law, subject to the condition that
in all countries when a person sneezed he
himself, if alone, or a frieid if one hap
pened to be near, should make a pious ex
clamation. This soon crystallized iuto one
general form, that of "God bless you!"
It is rather singular that this curious
custom is now observed, in me form or an
other, in most European c mntries today.
In Germany the sneezer is saluted with
"Your good health;" in Ircl md with "God
bless your honor." In Itidy and Spain
similar expressions are used. The Rus

In England and in the Continent they

of cowskin pressed in a still mold, and then

claimed for it that it is niuch lighter, that
it lasts longer and that tplit hoofs are
never known in horses using it. It is per

rulers of the country from the days of

whereas in England it has been left to
struggle by itself.
George I, it Is true, set a transient
fashion of fencing with the foil, as he did

them graceful and not because he regarded
either of them as a sport. The French
