GIFTS? You ttnd them by the hundreds at the Art and Gift Shop!
Indeed —the store is so full of a number of things. "I'm sure we
should all be as happy as kings." Happiness as applied to kings is
entirely out of style, I know, but just the same, the old nursery rhyme is
called to mind by the pleased expressions on the faces of gift-seekers in
this most surprising shop. I only wish I could mention all the articles
shown. That being impossible, I shall satisfy myself with a few, say, for
instance, candlesticks, book-ends, illuminated parchment mottoes, tea
sets, vases, breakfast sets, electric boudoir lamps and all sorts of novelties
imaginable.
ONLY five more days 'til Christ
mas add still no gift for that
discriminating friend. Well,
perhaps I can help you. Just let
me think, Oh, I know just the very
thing—a lovely Italian plaque. Mr.
Saltzgiver has a choice selection re
cently received from abroad. Or,
if that Is not exactly what you want,
how would artistic altar candle
sticks do instead? Then too, I
might suggest your photograph or
better still a visit to the Saltzgiver
Art and Antique Store where the
gift that is "different" can always
be found.
DEAR ME, what a good time Old Santa Claus must have! And how
well he stocks his' many branch hbuses! Take, for example, the
Marianne Toy Shop, on Locust street. One wonders how he ever
thinks of the never-ending variety of gifts he shows us there. Wise old
fellow that he is, he has remembered everyone from the baby to the big,
growing boy. For the latter, there are miniature chemical sets —per-
fectly safe, of course —with test tubes, chemicals and ever? litmus paper.
For little girls there are "Little One's Baking Sets," with tiny bags of salt
and flour, a box of baking powder and all necessary articles, including a
baking book and rolling. In addition there are hundreds of things that
simply can't be mention-ed here for lack of space.
{{fTVIER'S just one thing I want
I for Christmas", declared a
pretty young Miss several
days ago. . .
"And what is that?" X ventured
to inquire.
"A Louis neckpiece," she prompt
ly replied. , .
"A Louis neckpiece? I repeated,
thoroughly mystified.
"Yes " she explained, A neck
piece made by Louis, the Ladies
Tailor."
"Oh," I laughed, "I thought per
haps you were speaking of a new
sort of fur. But why so particular
that it should come from Louis'
shop?"
"Because" she replied, I know
it's sure to be genuine then."
Not such a bad reason, is it?
I OVERHEARD a conversation in the "movies" several days ago that
amused me considerably. Three met? in the seats back of mine were
discussing Christmas gifts. "What do you suppose your wife will give
you, Bob?" inqutred the first. "I'll never tell you," answered the one ad
dressed as Bob, "but I wager it will be a gift worth receiving. You see,
it's this way: About a week ago began 'pumping' to And what I
wanted. Well, since she asked, I told her. That is, I didn't exactly des
ignate the article, but I did most tactfully state that McFall's are showing
the best line ever of bathrobes, neckties, reefers and gloves. I guess I
mentioned initialed handkerchiefs, too. And, believe me, boys, I hope
she takes the hint, for you can't beat McFall's for quality."

IT isn't everyday that one finds a
frock as all to-gether attractive
as a certain little afternoon gown
just arrived from New York to swell
the number of beautiful garments
already displayed in the Cloos Shop.
Perhaps the very fact that it's a
Dreeoll model accounts for its rare
charm. Indeed I'm almost sure it
does. Fashioned of lustrous, black
charmeuse, cleverly beaded with
steel, it boasts all the latest features
of the very smartest gowns. With
short sleeves and a cleverly draped
tunic skirt, the blouse effect in front
loses itself in a f loppy butterfly
sash in black. As for being reason
ably priced—well, to ask less would
almost be a reflection against the
dress.
I wish I knew the reason why so
many women finding buying gifts
for men such a difficult task. It
seems almost amusing considering
the many possibilities from which
they have io choose. In fact, in the
Army and Navy Shoe Store alone
there are enough suggestions from
which to make a choice for almost
any man. First in the list comes big,
warm gloves followed closely by
hosiery of all sorts —including the
heavy woolen variety—bedroom slip
pers, and shoes, shoes, shoes! That
growing lad, in addition to his less
useful gifts, would surely appreciate
a pair of heavy shoes for school, the
kind that all boys love to wear this
snowy weather:
