If candy makers had to depend on
xen consumer! instead of upon Cupid
ir.d the kids, there would be great
'allures in saccharine circles- -bat
:here is one time of the year that my
'nasculine sweet-tooth &b?*rt> ItMtf
led then. Instead of yearning for the
:hocolate-cream confections or the
fruit dips, it ciamors for a big bag
>f mixed candy, right out of the bar
I admit it it a plebeian taste, that
'.he candy is mostly glue and flour
tumbled to suit the taste of the
adolescent?but somehow I cannot
'.*-?] that I hare rightly celebrated
'"hristmas without this bag of candy.
When I was a boy this is the sort of i
candy we got and the taste was early
acquired. And what a lot of antici
pation there was In eating the stuff?
anticipation because when you stuck
your hand In the sack for a sweet
bit. you never knew whether it would
come out clutching a lemon-drop, a
tararnel or a peppermint!
And, too, the candy was cheap. You
could get a big beg full of it for ton
cents?and some ol It was red and
com? mhite and tome yellow a:.
there were sj:;ir b< arts with mot
toes on them ar.d nie* round marble

heaps of interesting things In tLa
Christmas sack of candy.
This was the same kind of cand
?*e got sewed up in red mosquito-ba
sacks at the Sunday school Christma:
tree festivities, along with the nut.'
and the popcorn oalis.
And now. man that I am, I canno
get across the Rubiccn of Christmas
without sauntering down to the cand}
store and asking for a sack of cand>
, out of the barrel." Invariably th?.
candy man will tell me he has much
! better candy and look at me in a sur
' prised sort of way. but I know what
I I want when I want it?and Christ
mas is the time.
How about you? Haven't you e
sweet tooth left for the old-fashionei
Along about October 1 when the
rranarlea of the world are full to
bursting and the cellar Is so clut
ered up with coal and preserves that
be maid cannot reach the laundry
aps without stumbling over the snow
ihovel, somebody says something
about Christmas and gives father
? '-art disease. All summer "dad" ha3
been wrestling with the problems of
business?this was presidential year,
and everybody had to have vacations
and Billby & Jones started in direct
competition and?oh. the dickens
knows what! v%
And now he has to face that Christ
mas thing again!
The list is a mile long and father
knows it will put a crimp in blB bank
account amounting almost to cramp,
but mother 6ays It will have to be
added to. if anything, so there!
Hut somehow ub I look at "dad," 1
cannot restrain from asking:
"Why Hhould father be the goat?"
It wasn't so In the days when I
was dreaming of a wonderful career
In letters. Everybody worked on
Christmas presents then and father
was not called upon to settle the
Christmas bills for all the family. I
made a "corner-copia" . e don't spell
It now the way we pronounced It
then- for mother. She knitted sow"
socks for inc. I rigged up a shaving
paper outfit for pa and he gave me a
perfectly gcod twenty-five cent jack
knife. I made a wood box for the
I neighbor's wife and she sewed me a
I pair of mittens. Everybody made
things in those days. For weeks be
fore the holidays, mother worked ev
ery night on Christmas gift3. and she
was as harpy as could be doing things
j for those she loved. Into the fabric
j of what she was sewing, she put the
I love and affection of a great heart?
J and all of us did the same.
And I'll leave It to you?didn't the
thin^B we got in the old days, the
presents we made ourselves for each
other, come nearer exemplifying the
true Christmas spirit?
Of course they did!
And father did not have to dig
down in his pocket and pay for two
hundred and fifty-seven presents, two
hundred of which are given Just be
cause somebody else gave us some
thing and got on tho confounded
I'm for Christmas?but I like the
old-fashioned observance best. It isn't
observing the "peace-on-earth" spirit
to load "dad" up with so much debt
that he can't crawl out In five months,
fletter take to wood boxes and cornu
The express wagon la backed to the
j grocery store entrance and the driver,
! assisted by the grocer's boy. begins
\ to unload ChristmaH trees. Soon tho
walk is cluttered with them and the
passersby, catching the spirit of the
tree, smile at the children gathering
'round. A light snow is falling and
the green of the spruce is inviting, to
pay nothing of the reason it has come
What a lot of Christmas trees the
grocer has ordered?and yet how few
compared to the many thousands that
grow In Christmas Tree Land, away
Up north. Up there the woods are full
Of Christmas trees and the snows are
?o deep that snowshoes may be nec
essary. And In Christmas Tree Land
there are vast stretches of nothing but
evergreen trees and white snow?and
In the snow, If you are versed in
woodcraft, you might find tho track j
of a deer and innumerable trails of
Brer Rabbit, leading away through the
greenery to the quiet, vast places.
Probably you pay $1 or more for a
Christmas tree. Up north they are
free, but the hardy men who gather
them must wade In the deep snow and
d/aw them many miles to the railroad
that they may be shipped to the Httlo
boys and girls of the city.
And as you sit beside your tree.
! with your heart glad and your spirits
gay. you might ponder on how that
tree got to you. You can picture the
vast snow field nnd the forest with tho
December sun shining on It, shedding
Jewels of light. A squirrel la floun
derlng about in the snow trying tc
locate some burled nuts and a blue
jay is scolding saucily from a ma pit
treo hard by. And then, into the
quiet comes a man. lie is a sturdy
man with a woolen cap drawn closely
over his ears and nose. There are
slits for his eyes. On his feet are
great woolen packs with rubber shoes
and his trousers are tucked inside
the packs. His coat Is very odd. tc
you, consisting of a great, bright
sweater sort of garment, buckled
cloKoly around him. On his shoulder
he carries an ax. He begins to cut
Christmas trees and the one you
have In your home is a very pretty
one that pleases him as he hauls it
' away to where his team awaits. With
many other trees yo?r tree Is put on
the sled and after a time, Is hauled
to the depot where it is shipped to
The man who cut It was no doubt
a lumberjack and If he is like hla kind,
he lives In a log cabin with his wife
and children. In the olden days be
worked in the timber exclusively, but
now he farms during the summer on
a wee farm that he is clearing of
stumps, and In. the winter time he
cuts wood for the lumber companies.
And his little ones always have a
Christmas tree, for Christmas trees
nre free where hr. lives, but probably
it is not as plentifully loaded with
gifts as yours, for which you should
be very thankful.
Our store now gleams with many beautiful Christ
mas presents for every member of the household from
grandma and grandpa down to the baby. The "beauty"
of getting presents from us is that they are USED and
will last a long time, and the giver will be long remem
