There may be nothing better than
cards, but for a change almost any
thing, is desirable. A needle afternoon
at this season of the year is Instructive
as well as pleasant.
Women ' have been away from home
at the sea shore, the lake shore, in the
mountains, or even off for a short visit,
and have seen many new stitches and
many new designs in embroidery. Make
this fact the basis of an entertainment.
Invite the guests for 1 o'clock luncheon
and ask them to come, prepared to
demonstrate the. newest fad in em
broidery or needlework.
There are many kinds of embroidery;
and u an afternoon . thus spent with
needles will -prove a help In making
Christmas gifts.; Any new bit of fancy
work will answer. , Every one must go
prepared and willing to teach every,
one else how to do the work she knows
how to 'do. . .'
Cards, cards, nothing but cards, after
noon and afternoon. There are neigh
borhood card parties and club parties
and luncheons followed by cards until
It seems that every one has had cards
enough to last a lifetime. But what

anxious hostess.

The pe6ple -demand in .the .n.ext Congress workers, and not

needs every . influence .that can' advance her interests. This'- State
has a representative in : the ; Cabinet in the .department that most con
cerns our commercial welfare... Secretary Metcalfs appointment was
hailed by Republicans and. Democrats- as ah act of the President
vital to ou'r interests and prosperity.-* Let the thoughtful members
of both parties renfember that an appointment so' conspicuously use
ful deserves acknowledgment by giving to President Roosevelt the
support of a solid.delegatioh. There is niot a true California Demo
crat, who puts his State above partj£- % that* would not trust Kahn,
Haj'es, Smith," McKinlay/. Knowlamf," Gillett, Needhain or Mc-
Lachlan to administer upon his .estate without bonds. This being
so, why are not these gentlemen deserving of confidence and the
right. men to be" trusted in caring 'for the interests of every man's
estate so far as it is affected by prpper and legitimate attention in
Congress? . ' "
This State has long been ambitious, to secure a .representation
in the Cabinet. But that ambition was. briefly gratified only once
by the short service of Mr. McKenna .before his promotion to the
Supreme Court, until President Roosevelt gave to us the position
'of the greatest importance to the whole Coast, and conferred it
upon the gentleman who would have been selected by popular vote,
if that method had been possible. One needs only to remember
the satisfaction expressed at Mr. Metc.alf's- appointment in the
complimentary functions, in which men of all parties took
•part, to understand how important it is to us. .
As the President recognized California, let the State requite him
by a vote of confidence that will send a solid Republican delegation
to the House. This is dictated by the principle of ordinary prudence.
We want a fair chance with the rest of the' country for our com
merce and business, in the things that make for their support and.
I progress. Let us not be imprudent and indifferent in such a situation.

THE Gurney. incident in Massachusetts,- in which an : attache of

this diplomatic privilege is a new tiling, just* invented by President
Roosevelt as part of an imperial programme. Thus we have the
