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
Just a sprig of green she found
Lying carelessly around ?
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,
'Twas remarked, concerning mis
tletoe. Her mistake seemed odd. You see,
Peg excels in botany!
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
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"

Charming Christmas !
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

good will and glad tidings may be fit
Tlie response was more general than
was expected. Scarcely a house of
those to whom the appeal was address
