Copyright, 1915, by American Press Association. P EGGY wore a sprig of mistletoe, Wore it Christmas eve. Of course you know What the consequences were Wearing that and in her hair. PEGGY'S not to blame fordoing so. How could she know it was mistletoe Just a sprig of green she found Lying carelessly around ? s OME said Peggy wasn't very slow At a party wearing mistletoe And a light in her blue eyes Not exactly shocked surprise. PEGGY'S not the least to blame, although 'Twas remarked, concerning mis tletoe. Her mistake seemed odd. You see, Peg excels in botany! T Christmas Money. The demand for Christmas money at the Now York subtreasury grows each year. On a recent Christmns about $250,000 a day in new coin, both gold and sliver, was provided to meet the demand, -which kept up until Christ mas dnj". This Christmas money comes direct from the mint each year nt this time. Thousands of residents of Now York who never see the subtrensury at any other time pour down on the dingy old Wall street building and clamor for bright new gold and silver. The big department stores also de mand new money, both to please their customers and to facilitate change. Idea For Christmas Decoration. In the dining room that lias to have a screen to conceal the kitchen there may be a very simple and effective ad dition made to tho Christmas decora tions by pinning holly to it, covering tho original surface completely. Lace curtains may nlso bo effectually ubod in this way to make lovely bits of color in the room. HEN all the world is white with snow 1 en million tongues repeat The tidings of the birth of Christ In accents clear and sweet. They fling the message to and fro O'er frosty hills and dells Till every earthly car has heard The music of the bells. 'HEY are the echoes of a voice Still ringing through the night From blossom bearing lands of sun To lands of frozen white, First heard on old Judea's plain, Where flocks and shepherds lay, By time and distance multiplied To welcome Christmas day. FOR then a shepherd boy awoke And rubbed his sleepy eyes And saw a star of wondrous light Above him in the skies And, pointing to its glory, cried: "AH hail the Christmas morn! Behold the starof Bethlehem, The Prince of Peace is bornl" W. J. VEITCH Extends Best Holiday Greetings and invites you to visit his Store. t3$KtfHKj3MSM$45K4M$M3HtSKtKiMSHSM'' Charming Christmas ! Eve Custom Lighf Up on Christmas Eve. Some residents of Boston received the following announcement daintily printed in old English a few days before- a recent Christmas: "To All Whom It May Concern Greeting: We again bespeak your good will and assistance in adding to tho cheer of Christmas eve by placing light ed candles in the windows of your houses between 0 nnd 10 at ntght, to the end that the hearts of passersby may be gladdened nnd that the day of good will and glad tidings may be fit tingly commemorated." Tlie response was more general than was expected. Scarcely a house of those to whom the appeal was address ed but had Its candles ananged long beforo the hour npp&Intcd and prompt-1 Iy at (5 o'clook lighted up In a ilare of i Christmas light. The effect of good Christmas cheer nnd of welcome to tho coming festival was charming. Tho custom will be observed hereafter.

After the stockings arc hung ' and tho cliildrcn arc teady to bo tucked snug in their beds tho whole family gathers In front of tho fire, while each one, largo or small, contributes something to ward tho invocation of tho Christmas spirit Among the choice selections that uavo been found especially appropriate for this hour, when hearts are tender and receptive, are Dickens "Christmas Carol," bits from ITerrlck, Walter Scott and Georgo Withers, Ri-ginald Ile ber's "Star of tho Kast," Lu ther's bpitutlfu. carol "All Pralso to tho Eternal Lord," Alfred Domett's Christmas hymn, Phil lips Brooks' exquisite "Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem!" or any of tho Chri.umas gems written by Mrs. Sangstor, Margaret Deland, Louisa M.

Last in the reading comes tho slmnlo H I'staraent story of tho Nativity, and just then ns tho children are ready to scamper off to be'l the recitation in con cert of that wonderful, ever new Christmas poem '"Twas tho Night Beforo Christmas," their exit being appropriately timed to its conclusion: $ Fiom Battle Creek, Mich., a J Clu Minns message was sent to the nation a menage that may ; mean Cluistnm cheer for the . stan lug tenement dwellers, the ; street waif, the jobless man, the social outcast, for everybody who Is lonely, neglected or friendless.
