The first day of the year has been
a time for celebration sinca the days
of the great Roman empire. -The Ro
mans exchanged greetings end made
presents to such an extent that, un
der the Caesars, New Year's was a
very profitable day to the .emperor and
a burden to his subjects.
in the Persian calendar the year
begins on March 21, which day is one
of rejoicing. Among other peoples,
the year began on "March 25, until
1752, when (ireat Britain changed it
to January 1, by an act f ' parlia
ment. Old Saxon Toast
The rejoicing and good fellowship
at New Year's among the Teutonic
and Saxon people called for a "flow
ing bowl," in their belief ultimately
this was the origin of the wassail
bowl, so-called because of the usual
toast. "To your health," or "wass
hail," in Saxon. ' The bowl was so
large that a man had to use both
hands to raise it to his lips when he
drank from it. Times were so stren
uous then that a friend always stood
by with drawn sword, to protect him
from being stabbed while thus unable
to protect himself.

New Year's eve and a watcli party!
Visions of sandwiches and cakes
are immediately conjured up at the
word "party." Of course the best
silver and china will be polished and
washed to give the finishing touch to
the table.
The easiest for the hostess, as well
as one of the most attractive ways to
serve a large party of guests, is the
buffet lunch. In this way a happy
air of informality is preserved, the
men serving an almost private supper
hour with his "lady love by a little
maneuvering of chairs in half-obscure
corners, or staking out a claim
op some deserted staircase.
Use Unshaded Candles
The prettiest way to light a table is
with unshaded candle. A silver can
delabra in the center and two Dingle
sticks throw a soft, friendly light over
both table and room.
The custom of asking an especially
dear friend to assist in the duties of
hostess by pouring coffee at the head
of the table is'most advantageous to
the busy lady entertaining guests.
A lunch of thi3 sort may be served
with a minimum of confusion in a
home without a maid. With the ex
ception of replenishing the coffee pot.
and possibly the sandwich plates, no
service Is needed; for the entire sup
per, as well as the dishes and silver
for serving, is placed on the table.
The service plates are set In piles
at one end; whatever silver is needed
is laid out In regular rows; the nap
kins are also placed In piles; the cof
fee tray, with cups and other acces
sories, is set at the other end con
veniently before the person who is to
pour. Plates of sandwiches, olives,
pickles, salted nuts, bon-bons and
cake are scattered about the table in
the most attractive way.
A simple menu consisting of two
kinds of sandwiches,, olives, sweet
pickles, salted almonds, assorted can
dies and various kinds of individual
cakes (these latter should not have a
soft frosting as they are to be handled
more or less with the fingers), makes
quite as elaborate a tunch as is nec
essary, And the snowy cloth, shining silver,
gleaming glass and the bright red and
green of holly, all glowing under the
soft light of old-fashioned wax can
dles, makes a picture attractive
enough to add tastefulness to far
simpler food.
Dainty service is the first requisite
of all parties, elaborate or otherwise.
The watch party lunch should be
served not later than a quarter to 11
so that all may be cleared away and
the guests gathered about the piano
just before midnight singing the New
Year in.

In the Spider's Web
Nancy and Nick were caught in the spider's web when they were out
hunting for Jocko, their -lost toy monkey. They had lost their magic green
shoes, which was too bad. because they were as little as ants, and now they
couldn't wish themselves big again. But as the mushroom in Nancy's pocket
said, "TWey.must be brave and patient," and they were trying to be both.
"Here's the spider now," said Nick, peeping through the grass. "She's
coming back. She's found our green shoes, and she's got 'em onl"
Sure enough along came the spider, looking as proud as a peacick.
"Better be careful she doesn't wish to be big, as long as she has the shoes
on,; children," whispered the mushroom. "She might get as big as a cow."
Just then the spider arrived.
"I found your shoes," she said, "but I think I'll keep them. I ve always

"Oh, please Mon't," they begged again.

"We're children," said Nancy.
"Indeed! ' Well, . children, I couldn't find an ant and I'm hungry, so X
think I'll be having dinner. And her eyes glittered as she came toward them.
But what do you think happened? She couldn't walk In the web with
those shoes. They slipped whenever she took a step, so she had to take them
off. , : - -

us big," they said. "And in a twinkling they were their proper size again and

Some of these blouses being shipped
from Paris are of tricolette basket

Far from last In importance is the
