Those of us who are always hur
ried and hurried in our Christinas
work would do well to run the risk
of being smiled at for our overzeal
and begin at this early date to pre
pare the holiday gifts, many of
which we must fashion with our
busy hands, suggests Harper's Hi

we wish to remember can be made
out quite as well now as two mouths
hence. We may work leisurely and
take ample time in selecting the
gifts we do not make ourselves.
When the blessed Yuletide oumes it
brings with it many duties which
must be performed, and which de

Who of us does not remember with
disagreeable distinctness the list of
purchases that in times past had to
be made during the last week before
Christmas, the crowded shops
where one must wait with hardly
acquired patience for the overwork
ed shopgirl's attentions? Who of us
has not had numerous last stitches
to put in this or that love token and
has not sat up late into the night to
set the same necessary stitcher?
Now is the time when we may fill
iu the odd minutes with the needle
work that later would press upon
us. riurely we will enter more fully
into the spirit of Christmas if

the s une crisp charm of linen, with

tender flash of feminine throats.
Tulle hows and stocks are not, after

The clasps are either of real jewels

Love I Not Blind.
Love is never blind. What is
called blindness in love is simply a
keener Inner vision. Love over
looks fault of feature, form or dispo
sition, not because love fails to see
them, but because behind all the ug
liness love discovers beauty or sees
reasons for things being as they are.
History takes a sort of grim pleas
ure in tellingof times when love was
surely blind. Well, let It go at that.
If it's agreeable to think it is blind
ness that accounts lor somethings
that cannot well be accounted for
through any reasoning that is com
mon, then just think it is blindness.
Love will not mind.
When a man marries a woman who
Is unlovely in the eyes of others,
then those others say, "Oh, well,
Love la blind. And when a woman
marries a man whose ugliness even
the most charitable cannot deny,
then the same thlnjr is said. No
body thinks of the possible things
that Love may have discovered that
are hidden to all eyes save those of
The ugly Corano de Bergerac,
whose love story 19 now being told
on the stage, is not the only horribly
ugly hero or History, riction usu
ally lets the physically unlovely
alone. We must iook to real life,
therefore, for our ugly heroes.
We are ail, by nature, beauty wor
shipers, ana uod meant that we
should be. The beautiful worla is a
more neautlful place because we
love beauty. It is a part of our am
bition to add to the- world's -beauty
when we paint, or sing, or play, or
dress. It would not be a good, thing
for any of us it we did not love the
bauty of the outward form. But
ohysical beauty is no all. There is
the mental, you know, and the
Sorrow and Reautr.
Observation has disproved lor me
the theory that only the women de
void of emotion and feeling can re
tain a youthful appearance in ma
turity. I personally know three wo
men who have passed through heart
tragedies and cyclones or emotion
and who yet wear the satin of youth
upon their cheeks, albeit their birth
days have long ceased to be amon
the year's festivals for them. Thv
said, like another before them, "My
youth and my happiness are gone,
why should I throw my beauty ufter
them?" And they Btraightway be
gan to battle witli time and grief.
There was scientific massage for the
encroaching lines about the mouth
and eyes. There were carefully
prepared baths for the complexion,
and varying "food tonic" for the
wasted pores. There were outdoor
exercises unlimited, resting and
sleep producing. Strong, great
emotions, such as love and sorrow
and they walk ever hand in hand
may ravage beauty for a season, but
they intensify it eventually if the ex
terior is well cared for. Ella
