Over at Twin Falls it is ac

tricity near Evanston, Wyom
ing, with the result that about

A Quiet Christmas.
The greatest of the year's holidays
coming on Sunday, and there being no
public Christmas tree or other enter
tainment in town on Christmas eve,
the families in town celebrated the day
quietly at home, generally giving din
ners to their immediate friends. The

"mammas" seen proudly displaying
beautiful dolls, etc. The three big dolls
displayed at the Silver City Supply
Company's store were respectively vot

aud others too—notably hobos and
biliygoats. Of course Dowie
whiskers. Anyone would know that,
even though be never knew before.
All great men wear whiskers; Dowie is
a great man; therefore Dowie
whiskers. That is clean-cat logic, with
out any whiskers on it, and therein it
differs from Dowie.
