STisi timr of thei year many ,,f the! bIanks of the country c"ali o(, the I'nited States / r .:iwryv at WVashington for ý :.. coi ms of all denonina tns--goll, silver. nickel .it:d c)pper-- to supply the l'uniariids of their customers for bright. new coins for the Christmas holidays. fhis demand always exceeds the nor mal demand for new coins, and the treasury has heretofore not always been in a position to meet fully each request. The recent satisfactory re suits from the washing of currency has given the treasury department an idea for meeting the demand for shiny Christmas money. Twenty-five thousand dollars in halves, quarters, pmes, nickels and pennies is to be washed and polished by the mint bu reau of the treasury department, so that all who wish can have their shiny Christmas money. Most of the old coins which are to be renovated will be sent to the Philadelphia mint from the United States treasury vaults, whence they will be .supplied to the banks calling for them. Just what folks do with all this new cola at Christmas time is a mystery to the treasury omcials. Of course much of the smaller coins, bright, sew and shiny, are used for Christ -.as-tree decorations, but the major share of it, it is surmised, is Just spent. Surprise Enough. Kr. Green-"No, my dear, I will not tell you what I'm going to give you for Christmas. Why can't you worn ea be content to wait and be is.r prlsed? Mrs. Green-Oh, tell me now!

As was the fe'ast so were the Christ mas festivity in general. It was gay and glad. boisterously gay and glad, with romps and games which have gone out of fashion along with two-course, table groaning dinners. But the animating spirit of Christmas is the same now as it was 100 years ago, and will be the santme 110 years hence as now. Which is but to say: Youth is ever the same; the new things are but the old things in altered outward guise. A CHRISTMAS HOUSE PARTY Skating, Coasting and Sleighing Good Country Pastime While £Mty Offers Sight-Seeing, M tlc. t A hout,, party at Christmas affords the young pIlople of the family a chance to be gay and cheery for a week-end or more. The charm of a house party is in the bringing together of congenial guests who spend sev eral days with their hosts. When the girls and boys return from college or boarding school for the holidays they often bring with them as guests class mates whose homes are too remote to make it worth while for them to take a long and expensive journey for the recess. The girl and the boy who hall from the west and attend an east. era school of learning, may be forced to spend a homesick holiday if no comrade tenders an invitation to join a family group. Outdoor sports, skating, coasting. tobogganing and sleigh riding are the pastimes of the country, while the city offers sight-seeing, music and the other diversions. The long evenings at home, the little parties invited to meet the visitors, and the whole merry and swiftly passing time make a Christmas house-party one of the gala seasons of the year The house. keeper finds that her provision for the table must be ample. Her plea and cakes disappear like magic, for young people are noted for good ap petites. Tableaux, charades and con undrums are among the amusements appropriate to such a party. Story telling around the fire with the lights turned down, If the tales are of ghosts and spooks, is sure to be a favorite featare of the festivity. A CHRISTMAS SONG. Oh, Christmas is a jolly time, When forest. hang with snow, And other forests bend with toys, And lovely Tule-logs glow! And Christmas Is a solemn time Because, beneath the 8tar, The first great Christmasu gift was givea To all men, near and far. But not alone at Christmas time Come holiday and cheer, For one who loves a little child Hath Christmas all the year. -Flora Evelyn Pratt. Christmas Atmosphere. Christmas! Why the very word kin dles thoughts of good will in our hearts, it seems to bring forth our best and natural instincts-the man liness of man-a desire to make the world happier.

The finest and airiest of machine mardl laces, as l h:te as st.ow, in shadow lace and other patterns. make it piossible to produce these neck-pieces at a trifle of cost. For wear nith either dresses or coats the sailor collar with fischu . nds is made in the designs pictured her: ;'! Plain fine net is liked for edging the a all-over lace. It is used as a flat hind ing in place of a hem and the addition ,r of a fine cord of silk make an elegant S!! finish at the top of the binding. t Little buttons, nearly always cover ed with silk, are liked on neckwear and they appear in all the di-signs. Two jabots with silk turn-over col c lars are handsome designs for oldr ' h women. These collars are boned at rl it the sides and often adorned with small Il sparkling rhinestone buttons or silk covered buttons matching the collar. Laces and nets are usedI for th., jabots e and when very sheer the plaitings are h a C made double-that is. one falling over another, as shown in the picture. High, closeftting collars of net and lace are liked by young people. They are easy to make and a small bit of net and lace will furnish material for any one of a number of designs. They are usually finished with a tiny cravat bow of velvet or silk ribbon. Buttons, too, play a part in their make-up. I Such collars should be boned at the sI ides and back. They tasten either with tiny hooks and eyes or beauty pins. Very elegant little cravats of velvet ribbon serve as a background for me dallions of hand-crocheted lace. These are worn by all the grown-ups, young or old, and make most acceptable Christmas gifts. The medallions are in the Irish lace patterns and very dur able. They will outwear the bit of vel vet, and stand laundering week in and out. The same medallions may be tacked to cravata of different colors from time to time. Bright green vel vet ribbon, black and also vivid red are favorite just now. Small fiat cravat bows of silk are liked. They serve as a background for the new brooches and bar pins in novelty jewelry. Neckwear will help out the Christ mas shopper and any one who has time to make up these attractive fin ishing touches to the toilette at home will be able to gladen many hearts at Christmas time with little expenditure of money.
