ST. HELENS MIST. FRIDAY. DECEMBER 19.
CHRI8TMAS BUOOESTIONS. By State Fire Marshal Christmas is coming with gay tree, twinkling candles, sparkling decora tions, beautiful gifts, smiling fares, and light hearts. The one dav of the vear when each one strives to make others happy. There is no wonder that in ev ery child's mind Christmas is the hal lowed day of the rear. The day is indeed deserving of such profound ob servance, for it commemorates the most important event that has ever taken place in the history of the world. It is right and fitting that it should be cele brated by every person aud in every home, but in no case should people per mit their enthusiasm to carry them be yond the point where- they may forget to give proper ' consideration to their own and other personal safety. The customary manner of celebrating, entailing the use of inflammable decor ations, burning candles, filmy dresses, . etc., has in -many instances resulted in disastrous fires attended with the de struction -of life and property, and the leaving of a trail of sadness and sor row.iftthe wake of that joyful occasion, llow much better to have eliminated the clement of danger by exercising a little forethought and precaution. The use of fire is in no way essential to a proper observance or Celebration' of the day, and we .differ a few timely suggestions for a saner and safeT Christmas. Do not have-wiring done by a novice. Use a small tree. Small trees are usually more decorative than large ones and much safer. Be sure the, tree is well fastened so it ennnot fall over.. If candles are' used, protect the floor under the tree with a sheet of metal. Where possible, ; use small " electric lights for illumination.'; . If you must no cnndles, place same so that flame cawnot conic in contact with anything inflajnmaMe, and fasten securely. Jyk- , . , Use metal't'insei- for decoration in stead of paper or inflammables. For snow effects use asbestos fibre instead of cotton. 1; not hang decorations on gas jets, and do not hang anything inflammable on chandeliers. Keep screen always in front of fire place. Never permit children to light can dles. Thev should never under any cir- cumstauces be permitted the use of matches. Kxtinguish all candles before the dis tribution of presents. Remove all decorations within three days. it is a very wise precaution to fire proof the children's filmy dresses and any inflammable decorations possible, which can be done for a few cents in the following manner, viz: Dissolve commercial ammonium phosphate in water in the proportion of one pound to the gallon. Immerse the articles for a fifw minutes in solution, wring siigiuiy and dry. This is not injurious to the skin or fabric in any way, and very ef fectually fireproofs, as the material will not blaze or burn. Cauttou The other morning as an old negro boarded a Capitol car in Oklahoma City, Judge Pitchford of the supreme court, who was sitting In the colored section of the car up and gave the old darky his sent. "Who Is yo'?' inquired the sur prised negro. "I'm jUBt a plain, common kind of a man," replied the judgo. "Yessah, I kin see that." replied the old uncle, "but I means what's yo' name?" Ada (Okla.) News. Two Ways to Feel Potatoes Put them Into frying basket and plunge them Into hot water three or four minutes, then drain and peel. Another way Is to put them in a flat baking tin and set them in a hot even for about five minutes. This loosens tho skin so it readily slips off.
