Miss Adelaid Boyd, who has been
the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Noah Al

before five yesterday afternoon, Dr.
B. O. Works received a phone mes
sage from John Simo at Point Isa
bel asking him to go down to the
Point to attend his wife who has been
suffering some days with an abscess

Point and would start bark at once.
The doctor said goodbye to his wife
and friends and took passage. He
arrived at the Point at nine, the tired
old engine, running into the station
on fire pounds of steam and then
dying. Dr. Works attended to Mrs.

Chibtinas Tree Plentiful.
Boston, Mass., Dec. 17. This
year's crop of Christmas trees is
abundant and of a good quality, al
though the price is about the same
as last year. The open weather in
the northern states and New Bruns
wick has made it an easy matter to
gather stock. At retail the trees are
selling for from 40 to 75 cents each,
oking to size and quality. The ever
greens cost the dealer about forty
cents a bunddle, each bundle con
taining from one to five trees. Trees
retailing at fifty cents are said to
cost the dealer only about twelve
cents, but this large margin of profit
is defended by the inconvenience of
handling this sort of merchandise,
the large cost of delivery and the
the great risk. Trees left on hand
after Christmas are only so much
rubbish, and cannot be gien away.
New Brunswick supplies a large part
of the trees used in. New England
and the East generally.
I Advance Christmas Mails.
New York, Dec. 17. To insure,
the delivery of Christmas mails in
England, the American liner St.
Louis sailed today, instead of Satur
day. The ship carried an immense
cargo of mail, largely gifts forward
ed to Great Britain from this country.
The advance in the sailing date will
permit the distribution of mails
throughout a considerable portion of
England by Christmas Day. The
sailing of the steamship Philadelphia
from New York for bouthampton,
scheduled for Christmas Day, has
been advanced Id the 24th. These
changes are agreeable to the postal
The sailing of the St. Paul from
Southampton for New York, original
ly set for tomorrow has been ad
vanced to today, so that homecom
ing Americans may spend the holi
days in the United States.
Yesterday afternoon at the Con
vent of the Incarnate Word a Mex
ican supper was served to a crowd
of appreciative Brownsville people
that overtaxed the facilities of the
culinary department of the Convent
and made away with everything eat
able that had been prepared. The
sisters were assisted by a large num
ber of the alumnae of the academy
in preparing and serving the supper.
Tables were placed in the large yard
on the Seventh street side of the
Convent and there delectable tamales
and enchiladas and other creations
Mexican were brought, steaming
and savory arid hunger-compelling
to the multitude who had forsaken
the usual evening meal in the usual
place to enjoy something different.
Some staid householders and
heads of families who refuse to be
happy at meal time out of sight of
their own hearths were seen toward
dusk proceeding homeward from the
convent grounds bearing huge dish
es of comestibles that not even a
tight covering could keep from emit
ting the most pleasing of odors.
In every way i.e supper was a
great success, many more people at
tending than had been expected.
Following the al fresco feast, a
Christinas entertainment was given
in the Convent hall. The following
program was rendered:
1 Overture Crown of G6lu

Misses Barron, Marion Layton,
Tableau "Rock of Ages"
The various numbers were well
given and thoroughly enjoyed by
the large crowd in attendance. The
twelve little misses who took part
in the chorus entitled "The Glean
ers" undoubtedly won the honors of
the evening. They sang and acted
without a trace of self consciousness,
seemingly enjoying the piece just as
much as those on the other side of
One, the littlest maiden of the
twelve was especially good, singing
the closing "good night" with just
every bit of emotion of which her
young soul was capable.
A very effective feature was the
"pose's plastiques" in which Miss
I Etta Kowalski posed most graceful
ly, while the sweet old lullaby
"Rock Me to Sleep" was sung.
The different tableaux were wor
thy of special mention, all being
well posed and effectively staged.
The hall and stage were very
prettily decorated with palm leaves
and greenery and many hued flowers.
