It Is perhaps the only advantage
of being at Saloniki that you can
spend two separate Christmases there.
Thus it happened that, 13 days after
we had eaten our own plum pud

Christmas day in a Macedonian vil

The cavalcade consisted of three
Englishmen—one of them a cosmo
politan genius speaking Greek like his
mother tongue—Petros, a Greek or
derly and a leading citizen of our vil
lage. We sat on pack saddles not un
like 1 armchairs, with rt»po stirrups.
The* reins are a hollow mockery,
their only purpose being to affront »lie
pony and make him sulk. Hang them
carelessly on the saddle* and the sure
footed little beast will find his way
along the most blood-curdling paths,
where dee*p ravines full of bowlders
await the smallest slip. At the end of
a pass we emerged into a great plain
and saw our village before us umid
vineyards and tig tre*es.
We fired a salvo of revolver shots
into the air to announce our arrival
and were soon shaking hands with a
number of men in dark blue-black
braided Eton jackets and durk baggy
Petros was politely determined that
we were to lunch with him and soon
we were In his house reclining on
lovely striped rugs of red, black and
yellow and watching the sparks from
a wood fire fiy up a big chimney. Be
fore lunch, however, came a ceremony
which is inevitable on entering any
hguse. The daughter of the house
brings a tray on which are small
glasses of home-made brandy, an
equal number of glasses of water, and
a dish of sweet stuff—Turkish delight,
chocolates, or In one case, unequivoc

with a spoon. The guest stands up
takes a glass of brandy, drinks it and
says "Cheer oh." Next he takes a
sip of water, and last a sweet.
After the cognac and the Tc-kish
coffee came lunch. Soup of tripe, rice
and vinegar, followed by a duck. The
duck had rice with It and a touch of
garlic. Of ull ducks this was the most
palpably divine ever eaten. Then fol
lowed dancing in the market place.
The market place is an irregular
open space with the invariable plane
tree. The spectators gather in the
corners, leaving the middle clear for
the dancers, who ai%e divided into two
groups. One of these groups revolves
slowly round a barrel organ decorated
with artificial flowers and grinding out
one never ending tune. First come
half a dozen young men, their hands
on each other's shoulders. Next, hand
In hand, some twenty or more women
with maroon-colored draperies round
their heads, dark blue bodices and
skirts, and large aprons of vivid scar
let crossed with bars of a darker red
and fringed with tassels of bright
color. Bound their necks are strings
of gold coins—dowries to be handed
on from mother to daughter, big, thin
Magyar coins mostly, though one
woman has a brooch of three English
sovereigns. Next to the women, come
the children, tailing away to the very
tiniest little girl, each resplendent in
her tiny red apron. The. leader per

down the line the step becomes a mere
shuffle, and so they go round and round
forever silently and steadily, not ap
parently bored, but with no trace of
The other group consists of older
men who dance far more elaborately
with turnings and twistings and duck

fierce black mustache and a red sash.
He waves a bottle in one hand, as
sumes poses of humorously exaggerat

Deacon Jones decided to speak his

Keeping a Family.
The New York city bureau of per

to this Cincinnati authority.
He says that a few drops of a drug
called freezone, applied directly upon
a tender, aching corn, instantly re

corn, root and all, lifts right out.
This drug dries at once and simply
shrivels up the corn or callus without
even irritnting the surrounding skin.
A small bottle of freezone obtained
at any drug store will cost very little
but will positively remove every hard

few days ago was seen by his father,
at the noon hour, pinning a small
American flag on the seat of his trou

elder inquired the reason for this un
usual action.

youth, "some of us boys shot paper

Dangers of Watered Coffee
- I
Watered stock, watered milk, and :
watered coffee—the United States Gov
eminent is carrying on a crusade to
eliminate all three.
Everyone knows about watered
stock. Everyone has seen "blue milk,"
the combined efforts of a cow and the
old pump. But not everyone Is on his
guard against "watered coffee."
That the United States Government
realizes the danger of watered coffee
Is shown by the specifications for the
United States Army supplies. These
specifications say plainly :
"Coffee : roasts must be 'dry'
roasts, no water being permitted
before, during or after the process
of roasting."
Water in coffee Is a piece of dlshon
estv practiced bv unscrupulous coffee j
roasters. They turn the hose on the be
coffee while It is being roasted, so
that it won't lose weight, as coffee
will, when properly roasted. In roast
ing. coffee should lose about 16% of
Its weight. If It Is watered it loses
but 4%. The difference, of course, Is
water, for which you pay coffee value.
This is adulteration and nothing
more. The water-logged coffee Is rank
and unhealthy. Of course, It Is not
honest to charge for coffee, and sell
coffee beans soaked In water
lilt**' UUUUÖ puuacta
A lot of watered coffee Is being sold
no doubt right In this town. It Is more
often met with In the lower priced
grades of hulk coffee.
As coffee Is such an Important bev
erage, pure food authorities are ad
vising housewives to use the greatest
care in selecting their coffee. The pure
food exports say that the best way to
avoid watered coffee is to buy some
reliable packaged brand, roasted by a
reputable coffee roaster as Arbuckle
