Saks & Co. made one hundred toye happy this mortaing bly the gift of an overcoat to each. This is an annual event with this frm, and forms one of the most practical charities In the District at Christmas tima The overcoats given away are the saao as havoesee carried in the stock as regu-s lar goods. The night before Chistmas the clerks In the boys' clothing department of the store go carefully through the stock of boys' overcoats and select one hundred garments for distribution. The firm se oures the names of one hundred boys, twelve years of age and under, froM4 the Associated Charities, and to each - of the boys thus named is sent a ticket which, on presentation at the Saks stores. entitles the holder to one overcoat. For years, ever since Saks has been Saks, this charity, costing from $500 to $1.000 annually, has been a regular event. Long before the time designated on the ticket for the distribution of the overcoats this morning the crowd of boys gathered in front of the 7th street door to the store. Some of the youngsters were accompanied by their mothers, some by their fathers or big brothers. All looked blue and cold. When the doors were opened there was a rush into the store, and the lads peeled off the dilapidated garments they wore to be better able to try on the new coats. Some of them were particular as to trim mings, and all regarded the matter of pockets as most Important. Oqt little fel low, scarcely out of dresses, drew a prime in an overcoat that had seven pockets. He strutted home prdudly, holding his mother's hand. The coats were litted on the boys by Mr. Joseph I. Saks, the son of Mr. Isador Saks, who has been made a member of the firm of Saks & Co. He had a kind word for all the boys and their parents. The distribution occupied the better part of an hour, and the clerks, who worked hard in complying-with the demands, were more than repaid for their trouble by the happy smiles and contented looks of the young sters after the coats had been given them. Traction EmpIys temnme red. Following Its annual custom, the Cati tal Traction Company gave each of its 800 em ployes, conductors, motormen, extras, etc., a bright, crisp $2 bill as a Christmas gift in partial recognition of their faithful serv ices.

Services were held quite generally throughout the city. In all the Catholic and Episcopal Churches the day was observe4 and in many churches of other denomina tions special exercises were held in com memoration of the greatest event of re ligious importance in the history of the Christian world. Particularly interesting and agreeable were the musical programs in the different houses of worship throughout the city. The theme of all the music was praise to the Almighty for the advent of Jesus Christ into the world, and the songs, carols and anthems of jubilation were sung In inspir ing strains by the soloists and choirs In the many local churches. In many instances the voices of the singers were accompanied by both organ and orchestra, and the grand melodies of the day swelled in mighty vol ume through the large church edifices. Many residents of the city were prevented from attending the services by reason of business or for othey causes, but from the streams of people wending their way tow ard the various houses of worship a visitor to the city could easily imagine that all Washington was going to church. The program as announced in yesterday's Star were carried out In detail. In some of the Catholic churches special masses .were sung for the first time in Washington, and a numuber of new compositions by favorite composers were noted in the list of music prepared by the choirs. Many selections from the great composers of the last few centuries were included in the programs. and Gounod, Mozart, Mendelsshon and Hadyn were well represented, as were Dud ley Buck. Neidlinger, Shelley and others of later years. The coming of Christmas was heralded in a number of Catholic and Episcopal Churches last night, the services beginning just before midnight and continuing for about two hours. Masses were celebrated and holy communion was administered in the churches of the respective denomina tions and the choirs rendered anthems of laudatory nature. A number of programs will be held this evening in some of the churches, and still others will be postponed until next Sunday. CHILDREN RECOVERING. Improvement in Condition of Those Operated Upon by Dr. Lorens. Among the many thousands of children who are enjoylg themselves today are a girl and boy-little Miss Eileen Callahan and Master Charles Willett - who were operated upon at Providence Hospital about two weeks ago for serious deformities by Dr. Lorens and his assistant, during their visit to this city. According to reports, both patients are Improving steadily. Miss Eileen Callahan, who is nine years old, was a sufferer of congenital hip dis location. The deformity was treated in the presence of the medical fraternity of the city, and is considered one of the most suc cessful operations thus far performed by Dr. Lorenz. The child is in good health. and the only defect In her walk is caused by the braces which hold the hip bone In place, and which will have to be worn for some time. She exercises as much as poss!ble, by direction, this being regarded as absolutely necessary in order to effect a permanent cure. She is at her home, 911 1st street southeast. The little boy, the ten-year-old son of Mr. Joseph Willett of Anacostia, was operated upon by Dr. Lorenz for a serious case of club foot. He is at the Children's Hospital, and is greatly improved. It was at first hoped he would be able to spend Christmas at home, but the physicians con cluded it would be better for him to re main under their immediate supervision, and the privilege was denied him. Arrested for Creating Disturbance. About one dozen arrests were made by the police last night for horn blowing on the streets, the disorder being of an ag gravated character. The offenders were re leased on small collateral each, which they forfeited by their non-appearance in court this morning. Slight Fires Today.
