Mrs. Payne Well Qualified for Gra
cious Leadership.
Washington, Dec 21.—Mrs. Henry C. Payne,
who will succeed Mrs. Charles Emory Smith
as a social leader in Washington, is a woman
of exquisite tact. To describe her by com
parison, she is more nearly like Mrs. AlgT
than any other lady in public life. Her
friends tay she h;;s a genius for pleasant in
tercourse with the world.
She was born of one of the oldest and most
aristocratic Knickerbocker families, and was
Miss Lydia Wood Van Dyke. Her marriage
to Mr. Payne took place at Mount Holly, N.
J. At present her home is on Astor street,
Milwaukee, and is the scene of frequent en
tertainments. Heretofore President f.nd Mrs.

Ing in Wisconsin, and one of the first in
formal dinners given at the White Houee dur
ing the present administration was to Mr.
and Mrs. Payne.
The new postmaster general and his wife
have no children, but two young nieces. Miss
Margaret Louise Jones and Miss Margaret
Van Dyke, make their home with the Paynes,
and will be winsome recruits to the young
women of the official set, Mrs.-. Payne is
rather short in stature, her hair and eyes are
dark, and she is of affable manner and takes
a deep interest in charitable und philanthropic
work. She is a great promoter of educational
endowments, and, while an experienced host
ess who never slights her social obligations,
finds time to further the endowments of meri
torious educational institutions.
She is a member of the Daughters of the
American Revolution, of the Colonial Dames,
of the Society of the Descendants of the Col
onial Governors and of the Huguenot Society.
Four y-ars ago she waa a delegate to the !
seventh continental congress of the Daughters
of the American Revolution from Milwaukee.
Between the Paynes and the family of Senator
Spooner a warm friendship exists and they j
have so frequently visited Washington that \
j Mr 3. Paynt, is fully conversant with the social
| conventions .if the capital. Mrs. Payne will
make the fourth western woman in the cabinet
set, the others ing Mrs. Hay, Mrs. Hitch
cock and Miss' Wilson. The .east will here

In the olden times the < yule-log, or yule
clog, as it was called then, blazed on the
fire while the yule candle burned brightly
on the hospitable board which was amply
replenished with the abundance of yule cake
cut in slices, toasted and soaked in spicy
ale. Mince pies were decorated with strips
of pastry laid crosswise over the upper sur
face to represent the rack of the Etable in
which the Christ-child was born. The eve
ning was usually concluded with some inno
cent but inspiring game.
It was the custom to reserve a portion
of the yule cake for Christmas Day; other
wise, says superstition, the coming year would
be unlucky. A similar fatality hangs over
the plum eaka provided for this occasion un
less a portion of It is kept until New Year's
Day. '■-^t:f:, I .<;
The origin of many Christmas 1 customs and
superstitions may be deduced from similar
practices used by the northern nations of Eu
rope in ages far remote.
The Scandinavian was the most magnificent
festival given in honor of the god Thor. It
commenced, at the winter solstice.' It was
commemorative of the creation; for being the
longest night in the year, they assigned to it
the formation of the world from primeval
darkness, and called it "Mother-Night." This
festival was denominated Yule or Yeol. '
When Christianity superseded the rites of
pagan worship, the . people expressed the
greatest reluctance to relinquish this an
nual rejoicing. The missionaries desiring to
insure success to their preaching, applied
these festivities to celebrate the nativity of
Christ, which hence acquired the name of
Yule-tide. Hence our modern Christmas is a
mixture of old pagan rites and the more
aesthetic religious sentiments of the Christian
The profusion and piety that still seems
necessary for a proper celebration of this
anniversary is to be traced back to the
sumptuousness and splendor of those old
idolatrous feasts. It was believed that the
succeeding seasons would be fruitful or un
productive, according to the profusion or
parsimony which was observed on this oc
casion. On the eve of the first day, or Mother-
Night, fires of wood blazed throughout the
whole extent of northern Europe, hence the
origin of the Yule-clog. Peace offerings
dedicated to Thor were cakes made of fine
flour sweetened with honey, hence the Yule
Christmas Dishes.
From the time of the old Roman feasts the
proper Christmas meat has been a large bird,
peacock, swan or goose. The English, vary
ing from other nations, gave preference to
| the boar's head and roast beef. The boar's
j heal to signal a victory over a natural enemy
to man, as the wild boar was a deadly enemy
to the ancient Briton, and the Druidieal rites
sacrificed a white bull at their celebrations.
j In our land and time we still follow, in a
modified form, these old customs, giving tur
key the universal preference, although roast
goose and baked ham are considered proper
-Christmas meats.
Mince pie, plum cake and plum pudding
have lost none of their popularity and no
doubt gained more in flavor if not in whole-
The jolly wassail (wes hal) 'bowl has become
so modernized as to be scarcely recognized.
From the original mixture It degenerated to
mulled claret, then to the punch bowl, and
spiced cider.
