Tomorrow Is Christmas day, the best day of all the year, for it com memorates the supreme gift of God to man—the gift of his son. Those who make of it simply a day of en joyment without a thought of the real meaning of the day, should try to imagine what their surroundings would be if his teachings did not large ly prevail both in private and public life. Civilization is at a high or low ebb according as his teachings are followed. The White House will be the scene of many gay assemblages during the winter season. The members of the cabinet and about forty additional guests have been formally entertained and other state functions at the White House will be the diplomatic reception Thursday, January 3d diplomatic dinner, Thursday, January 10th judic ial reception, Thursday, January 17th Supreme Court dinner, Thursday, Jan uary 31st, and Army and Navy recep tion, Thursday, February 7th. The White House entertainments are always marked by a simplicity oi decorations and appointments, which, however, lose nothing in smartness and brilliancy. The floral decorations are never elaborate, but are perfect In detail and add to the beauty of the scene without forcibly intruding up on the attention.

At her af ternoon teas she wears soft silks adorned with beautiful laces, and she never appears in the accepted style of evening dress. Sometimes the cor sage of her gowns are cut V-shape and filled with lace, and, if the waist be sleeveless, long gloves cover her arms. As is well-known, white is her favorite color, and her evening gowns are almost Invariably white, sometimes with a touch of color about the bodice or in her laces, for which her toilettes are famous. Although possessing some beautiful gems, she seldom dons them except upon un usual formal occasions. The personnel of the President's military and naval aides and assistant aides is always one of the matters of deep concern to both maids and matrons of Washington society, as they can do much toward making the success of an aspiring debutante. Their duties are purely social, and they are generally designated to serve as "pink tea" soldiers two years: and there is an unwritten law which says they must be unmarried. Con sider then, the desirability of win ning and maintaining the friendship and influences of these arbiters of social elegance and etiquette at the American court- Mrs. John Stewart, Chestnut St., will entertained a family dinner on Christ mas day. Mr. and Mrs. Dan Stewart and daughter of Fargo will come up to join in the festivities. The guests will number eighteen. "Christianity is an expansion of Christmas."

On account of a recent death in the bride's family the wed ding will be a quiet one, no one but the immediate relatives being invited. The bride will be gowned in grey and will be attepded by her cousin, Mrs. M. A. Hanson of Crookston. Mr. W. A. Hanson will act as groomsman. The happy couple will go to house keeping immediately at the groom's residence, N. 5th St. Dr. and Mrs. E. P. Robertson will entertain a large party at Christmas dinner. Prof. Wm.

Stories of Grand Forks A Lakota correspondent writes that your readers may be interested in this prognostication: That the pres ent winter is going to be the hardest one for the past twenty years, there is an abundance of signs to show, and among them it may be mentioned that: The corn husks are a foot and a half thick, and all the stalks lean to the west. The geese, ducks and chickens are growing a coat of fur under their feathers, and are rubbing borax on their feet to harden them up. All the one-eyed owls are leaving the country, and the bob-tailed squir rels have laid up a stock of sweet potatoes, as well as nuts for provis ions. The farmer who has taken the trouble to investigate has found that all the toadstools on the' old logs have wrinkles in them. The last time that this happened we had winter weather that froze the handles off plows. Rabbits are sitting around with a hutriped-up look to them and field mice have wrinkles in their tails. If this means anything it means twenty degrees below zero before to morrow morning. During the past weeic Judge Mc Loughlin was wakened from his peace ful slumbers by the telephone route, and the voice was that of a lady. "Is this Judge McLoughlln?" "Yes," replied the Judge. "1 want to see you at your office at once on a very important matter." "Could you not wait till morning?" "Xo sir this matter must be at tended to now or never." "All right I wtH be at my office In fifteen minutes." "Where is your office?" "It is over Stanchfleld's store.. Do you know where that is?" "No, I do not." "Well, that is strange. Now I will tell you: Stanchfields is the leading cloth ier of the city and is selling goods at bed rock prices and a large sign dec orates the front of the building on the corner of Third street and Demers avenue." "All right Judge I guess I can find the place," said the lady. The judge arrived in his sanctum and the lady was waiting. "Judge, I am in the worst frame of mind that a woman can be," she open ed. "I have here a telescope of my husband's. He went west this morning amd was obliged to return on account of the storm. After supper he went down town and I went to unpack the telescope, and here are the contents. You can see for yourself, Judge." The judge opened the telescope and out came a lady's corset, a night dress, a pair of lady's hose and a pair of lady's slippers. "Ah:" said the judge. 'I see now' Madame. What is your name?" She gave the name. "Mrs. O and your initials are O. O.?" "Why do you inquire and look so surprised?" she asked. "Well, my dear madame, those cor sets and other garments 'have your initials stamped on them, and here is a pair of lady's hose from the size of which. I should say, that you wore a number three shoe?" "Yes sir that Is true." saiJ Mrs. O. "Xow, Madame, we will make those exhibits A, and for the purpose of identification. Could it be possible that you contemplated taking a trip with your husband this morning and changed your mind—as women very often do?" "Come to thing of the matter, I Jid," was the reply, "and I remember now that I packed those very things in the grip myself. Oh, my poor, dear O Will he ever forgive me?" After apologizing to McLauglin the lady started away, but she had gone but a short distance when the judge called her back, she having left her muff on the table. There will be no divorce action. WITH THE HOHEZOLLERS. Associated Preas to The Bvealag Times. Berlin, Dec. 24.—Christmas finds Emperor William and all the members of his family gathered at Potsdam for their usual family celebration. It is safe to say that nowhere in the wide, wide world is there to be found a family that observes Christmas with more genuine enthusiasm and Treas ure than do the Hohenzollerns. Tlis festivities take place on Christmas eve, according to the German custom. Lots year nine beautifully shaped trees hung with all kinds of shining baubles and lighted by white candles in a row in the centre of the great hall, one tree for their majesties, on? for each of their children, the loftiest for the Crown Prince and his wile, the shortest for "princesschen," ac cording to custom. This year a ninth tree is added to the lot in honor of the infant son of the Crown Trince and Princess. For gifts every one receives what he or she has "wished"—and something more as well. The gifts are not so magnificent as many might suppose, being often far less costly than those received by the children of wealthy commoners. The Christmas dinner, like the Christmas tree festivities, is always strictly a family affair. Sets Cases. Judge Watts set a number of cases for trial at the next meeting of the grand jury which will re-convene in Crookston on January 7. The cases are set for every day between Jan uary 7 and January 16. The first case which will be taken up is that of H. L. Gaylord against the Great Northern railway company over the shipments of some grain.

FASHION PARAGRAPHS Xew York, Dec. 22.—Now that the winter season is fairly on and the wild whirl of Christmas holiday festivities looms close at hand, the problem of evening frocks is absorbing much fem inine attention, and the dressmakers' workrooms are piled high with deli cate silk mousseiines, chiffons, gauzes, laces, nets, and with velvets and satins all delicate In color if more substantial in texture. The variety in such materials 1b pos itively bewildering and though on every side there is a temptation to extravagance, the planning of an even ing frock which will be inexpensive and practical as well as attractive Is this eeason, a simpler matter than usual. For the young girl, there is, of course, no evening frock so charming as the silken sheer stuff, and the fash ionable debutante is going In more strongly than ever for chiffon and mousseline and tulle, etc. but she will dance through miles of this shim mering, vaporous stuff before the season ends, and her evening frock expenses will' be far In excess of those of her mother or her older sister, who go clad in clinging satin and velvets. Some of the host of soft gleaming silks, the always popular crepe or a genuine liberty satin will prove a wise Choice, the last named wearing far better than the lighter satin finish silks, which are newer and more defin itely modish. There are many novel ties among these practical stuffs, and for the loveliest of these novelties high prices are asked. Crepes, too, have in many cases taken on a satiny surface, though the old reliable crepe de Chine In good quality is as good as ever. Chiffon crepe having the crepe waves with the extreme lightness of weight are made, but are hardly to be recom mended, for they are not so beautiful as some of the other stuffs of equal body and yet they have not the prac tical vitrues of the heavier crepes. Flowered and brocaded materials of surpassing beauty are displayed at all the counters devoted to the evening frock materials. But after all, it is the one-tone material which is the favorite for evening wear, though the subtle color harmonies may enter into the trimming scheme or may be ef fected 'by making up a transparent over several layers of chiffon in graded shades of one color. This last idea is much like the Parisian dressmakers, but demands skilfull treatment and unerring color sense. One tone material in which contrast in texture and finish gives variety are the striped stuffs which have found instant favor—striped satin and New Carpets and Rugs You will find here in abundance— every style and every pattern as well as every grade from the cheapest to the best. No matter what your wants are, you can find Just what' yon want here at positively the Lowest Prices chiffons, satin and crepe, satin and gauze, crepe and chiffon, etc. These materials are to be had in all the even ing tints, and are considered extreme ly ch'c. One sees, too, the Peking strips (white and black or white and color) in all these combinations, but stive for trimming the Peking stripes have not won on this side of the water the success which was predicted for them, and even the Parisians have laid them aside in favor of one-tone stripes. Colored mesh veils to match the hat or gown have quite gone out, so that again we have the black veil in ai'l Its glory in innumerable cobweb designs adorned with chenille and velvet dots of all possible—and many impossible —sizes. The only colored veils which have survived are the brown single thread mesh with a tiny velvet dot on every crass thread. These brown veils are always worn with brown, with most shades of red, with the ma jority of light colored felt and velvet shades, and with a few of the darkest Shades if the brown Is especially be coming. Irish lace trims many of the new white lynx sets. On the muff the lace is most attractive, but it is not seen on many of the round boas. White lynx gives an amazing amount of wear if well taken care of and cleaned reg ularly before it becomes too soiled, so that it is no more expenseive than any other sort of fur. The majority of collars are worn quite long this jyear, especially the wide ones, for nothing so cuts the figure as a short, wide fur collar The deep V-shaped stole with narrow ends in front are smart, and then in lynx are seen many new shapes, among them the stole shaped in black much like a square sailor collar which gives breadth across the shoulders without failing down over the arms and thus cutting off from the length of the waist. There is a new lace whose pattern is worked in gold yellow thread and which is being substituted for the cream or white lace with metallic gold threads in many cases. The new lace gives much the same effect as that into which gold thread is intro duced,and, of course, has the advan tage of being free from the tarnishing which is the distressing feature of all metallic trimming. Upon some col ors, however, only the metallic gold will give the best results, and this is true of almost all of the yellows, al though the yellow thread looks well upon a yellow of exactly the same shade seen in the lace. A newspaper would as soon attack a woman as attack a union man. The woman who complains that no one "understands" her is not usually a good cook. SEVERAL CARLOADS OF NEW FURNITURE A]VH PIANOS PARTICULARS OF THE RAID On Conl Train, Which Wag Made by the CHIxeng of Berwick Last Week. Further particulars of the raid on a coal train at Berwick are continued in the following dispatch to the Min neapolis Journal: Berwick had a fuel raid on Thurs day when the citizens raided a stall ed Great Northern freight train con talng a dozen cars of "company" coal and carried away ten tons. Men of every class participated in the raid, Including thirty farmers from the surrounding country, who had been waiting all night hoping for relief. With sacks and shovels every body, including business men, charged the train to beip themselves to the first coal that has been received in the town for three weeks. There was no idea'of theft. It was merely the demand ot the citizens and farmers for fuel to sustain life. Every pound of coal taken was weighed at the Imperial Lumber company's scales* and those taking it stand ready to pay for it. The raid followed a veritable fuel famine that has caused suffering and which has forced townsmen and farm ers to burn anything that would make heat, including, in some cases, valuable buildings and other property. The train was a through freight, which was obliged to stop early In the morn ing because of a dead engine. Word was at once passed about that a dead train with coal wal in town knd the raid automatically organized itself. Citizens unaccustomed to manual la bor swarmed the cars with the workers and began to carry away coal in sacks, taking from 300 to 1,000 pounds each. Sacks were at a premium.
