Nearly everything in the ordi nary Christmas tree invites dis aster from fire started by tho candles with which it is illumi nated. To its resinous twigs are attached festoons and wreaths of dry loavos and tissue papers, articles trimmed with lacos and ornbroidories, ornaments of cellu loid, bags of netting for candies and tinder-dry toys of all sort9. In this collection of inflammables aro placed a numbor of candles feebly attached to -light branches which can bo moved by the slight est touch or swayed by a current of air..

Nor did Michigan, tho thirteenth state admitted into tho Union, after the adoption of fio federal Constitution, havo any especial bad luck, until after the Republican party was entrusted with its government, since whioh time high taxation and corporation plundering has been tho misfor tune of hor people, for which the majority aro to blame. Democrats who boliovo that Mr. Bryan should bo President, can, therefore, take comfort from the fact that al though tho tlurteon hoodoo ap pears to have dogged his political footsteps, yet as a national prop osition tho Democracy oither over came tho bad luck attributed to that number, or escaped it, except in 1890. isiiyiykiyyyfeiyyykiyyyytfyiiyksyii WE ARE NOW Como in and sco If we have not got just what you want for that Christmas Present.
