Oa Friday at School No. 1 the rou tine of school work was la,Id aside and ' during1 most of the day the Christmas spirit was allowed to reign supreme. ' .Beginning- at 11 o'clock. Christmas exercises were held in most of the rooms, which were bright in their decorations of bamboo, holly, and Christmas bells. Pleasing- recitations, song-s and stories of the Yuletide were presented by the pupils, and the bright faces and merry voices on all sides showed that the true holiday spirit had taken possession of the school. At 1:20 p. m. many of the pupils at tended an entertainment held In the assembly hall for the benefit of the playground fund. A delightful pro gram of recitations, violin, piano, and vocal selections was carried out. The pupils taking- part were Leonm Bear, Elizabeth Wilson, Vivian Levy. Ruth Danhelsser, Lucile Goldring, Edwlna Pollock, Minnie Nobles, Bear Klotzko and C. J. Heinberg-. . Others who added much to the pleasure of the occasion were Miss Vera. Green, Miss Dimple McMillan, Miss Dorothy Osgood, Miss Wilkinson, Miss Christie, Miss White, and Miss Williams. One of the pleasantest features of the day's entertainment was the visit of Prof. B. B. Lane to the school. At 10.30 Prof. Lane made a most inter esting talk to one hundred boys and girls of Grade 8. These young people will form the freshman class of the High School next year, and they ap preciated this opportunity to meet Mr, Lane and hear his inspiring words. HOMEMADE CANDIES FOR CHRISTMAS. One woman who has a long- list of friends remembers them all every Christmas with a holly ribbon-tied box of homemade candies, delicious sorts made by herself. She buys fan cy boxes of all kinds and then fills them with her sweets. These boxes of confectionery are looked eagerly forward to each year by the recipi ents. Fondant, the foundation of all cream candies, she makes by putting- two cupfuls of granulated sugar and a pinch of cream of tartar Into a kettle which cooks evenly all over the bot tom, and then pours over this a cup ful of water. This syrup must boil without being- stirred until it will form a soft ball when dropped Into ice wa ter. When it has reached this point she turns it out on a large platter, or. bet ter still, a marble slab, which has been lightly greased. She watches it care fully, and when It is cold enough to bear her fingers she stirs it rapidly with a wooden spoon until a thick creamy mass is formed; then she dusts the breadboard lightly with pulverized sugar, turns the fondant onto this and Icnwa-d. tlxa m . -- h. wculd .- breatt until it is soft and smooth. She allows the fondant to stand in a glass bowl for. three or four hours before beginning to make her fancy candies. COLVIN-YOKUM WEDDING IN JACKSONVILLE. Miss Emma Elizabeth Tokum. of Jacksonville, and Mr. Joseph Thomas Colvln, formerly of Pensacola, but now of this city, were quietly mar ried last evening- at 7 o'clock at the parochial residence of the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Rev, Father Maher performing the cere mony.

The following from the Central Be cord ot Tjancaster, Ky., tells oi the marriage of a well known and popular teacner in the public schools of Pen sacola: "On Wednesday morning- at 10 o'clock at the home of the bride's uncle. Col. J. A. Doty, Reverend Charles M. Chumbley, of Dublin, Ga and Miss Alice Henderson, of Pensaco la, Fla., were united in . marriag-e, the Rev. J. Rockwell Smith officiating. Before the arrival of the bridal party an interesting musical program was rendered by Miss Helen Gill. The rib bon bearers, little Miss Iucile Ramsey and Master Claude Rice Gaines were becomingly attired In all white with red as a touch of color. The bride, a daughter of the late CoL John Hen derson of this county, is well known in this, her native town, she having taught In Garrard College. She is modett and unassuming- In manner and a devoted church worker in her chosen faith, the" Presbyterian, and will add much helpfulness to her hus band in his efforts. "The groom Is a Virginian, Is well known in Lancaster as he held the pastorate of the Presbyterian church here for several years and is now lo cated at Dublin, Ga. The newly wed ded pair left at once for a bridal trip to Atlanta and & number of other Southern cities." HOW THE PARENTS CAN HELP THE TEACHERS. "You are angry." said one teacher to a friend, the teacher of one of the grades composed of small children, as the two came down the stairs after school one afternoon, "what's the mat ter?" "Well, I am angry," said the other, who Is well known for the excellent re sults she rets from her tiny charges. "There are so many ways in which the mothers of little children, can help us teachers if they only would, and some how they never seem to think anything about it. For example, every day there is an exasperating- hunt to find the right outer clothing- for the chil dren. If the mothers would only see to It that the outer garments are marksC ft ?ould be a tremendous sav Is the Housewife's Greatest Help.

"As long as I have started now," went on the teacher, "I might as well finish. I wish all parents would re member that in buying school coat for a little girl to see thsit buttons straight down the froi7v ; he can put it on herself and , ifr it her self. If it buttons on the biioulder she must ask for help every time It is put on, and fhe teacher is the one she asks every time. "And one more thing before I stop parents should get rubber shoes large enough for the children, so they can put them on themselves. I can't think cf any task more exasperating than to try to get a too-small rubber shoe over a too-large leather one. If a, mother's nerves have been racked and her pa tience exhausted in doing these things for her two or at most three small children. Imagine, if you can, what it is for me, who must do it on bod days for 30 or more little ones, each one of whom is anxious to be the first one out of the schoolhouse. "I suppose all this sounds bad-tempered," the young teacher concluded, 'but really I can't help it. It is such hard, and it seems to me, unnecessary , wdrk, which just a little oversight at home would do away with entirely." And perhaps there is something In what the teacher says. Kxchange, ROMANCE OF MRS. M'COMBS. At the White House wedding the other day there was a slender young girj in blue velvet who almost shared honors with the bride, says Selene Armstrong Hannon, writing In the Houston Post. Throughout the after noon and evening she and the keen eyed smiling man beside her were sur rounded by Cabinet members, diplo mats and other members of the guests. And with these young people, as with the newly married Mr. and Mrs. Fran- THE Where PURE FOOD STORE, Quality Reigns Supreme.

The young girl In blue velvet was Mrs. William F. McCombs, formerly Dorothy Williams of Washington. Xow that she Is the bride of the bril liant young lawyer who managed the campaign that placed President Wil son in the White House; the whole country wants to read about her. With the democratic victory, Mr. McCombs became a national figure. Now, he has successfully played the leading role In a romance that Is romantic enough to suit the most exacting. Dorothy Williams made her debut In Washington in 1909. She was a run ning mate of Ethel Roosevelt and Hel en Taft, and ' for four years was one of the capitoTs acknowledged belles. She sang and danced herself into the hearts of every eligible bachelor in Washington's official set, and was ru mored engaged to each of them at some time or another. Mr. McCombs came on to Washing ton for President Wilson's inaugura tion, of course. At one of the numer ous big dinners given then he met Miss Williams. After that, nobody else could meet him. Old friends who had Journeyed to Washington to witness the inauguration ceremonies left town without congratulating Mr. McCombs on the part he played in the Presi dent's election. With the same direct ness and enthusiasm that had contrib uted to his success as chairman of the National Democratic Committee, he was now playing court to Miss Wil liams. Suddenly Mr. McCombs left this country for Europe. And rumor, which was Just about to announce him engaged to Miss Williams, forgot all about the matter. Then, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Leiter, brother-in-law and sister of the bride, chartered the Howard Gould yacht for a trip around the world. Miss Dorothy Williams and her young sister were to Join them in Paris and be their guests for the remainder of the cruise. It didn't happen that way at alL In Paris Miss Williams and Mr. Mc Combs met once more. The siege be gun by him in Washington was renew ed. Suddenly a cablegram dropped like a bomb into Washington's exclu sive circles. The message stated not that Miss Williams and Mr. McCombs were engaged, but that they were to be married the next day. . And they were in London. There was no trousseau, and there were no bridesmaids, with the excep tion of the bride's younger sister, who slipped into her prettiest frock and stood as maid of honor at the ceremo ny. The young people went to the nearest and most convenient church for the ceremony, but the Leiters were there, and Colonel and Mrs. Williams, the bride's parents, and a number of distinguished guests. Among these were the Curzons (Mr. Letter's Bis ter married Lord Curzon), the Coun tess of Suffolk, the Countess of Cra ven, the American Ambassador, Wal ter Page and Mrs. Page,, and the at taches of the London Embassy. Then everybody guessed that Mr. McCombs would accept the Ambassa dorship to France, which it was under stood the President still held open for him. In that case, his bride, a school girl and a debutante of a few years back, would have become the official hostess of the American Nation in the French Republic, a position which those who know her declare she would have filled with signal honor. When Mr. McCombs announced that he had declined to accept the foreign post, there was a general disappointment among his friends, and the public It has seemed such a fitting chapter with which to close a story of romance! PERSONAL MENTION. Mr. J. S. McGaughey suffered a se vere attack of illness yesterday, but his friends will be glad to know that he is now greatly improved and out of danger. . jj Master Willie Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Johnson, who has been ill for the last week, is'very much improved to the delight of his many friends.
