Designers give free rein to fancy when the time comes to grace the heads of fair women for the gayeties of holiday times and all that the midwinter sea son brings In the way of entertain ment. This year they are reveling in the most gorgeous materials, gold and silver tissues and laces, mock jewels, beads, spangles, brocades, embroid eries-everything rich and splendid that they can lay hands on. The eternal feminine has not changed since Tennyson sang "the tlemdor dear to women." But this slant effort is the swan song of ites millinery-after it, and already g la in with it, come the plain and simple demiseason hats; the prelude to spring styles-due to make an early appearance for the benefit of great numbers of southern tourists. Who but a designer of millinery would ever think of interpreting the lowly eoolle hat in fine lace? But the designlper's judgment is vindicated, for the hat at the top of the group shown above, Is a fascinating vagary of mil liery. Chantilly lace draped over a sat itr AIL JEWELRY John C.

The rose needs this promi nent position to be seen at all-for what observer will be able to get be yond a pair of eyes that must be looked into behind a veil of lace? Gold cloth with applique of figures in black silk cord makes the rich hat at the left of the group. It suggests the Orient, too, with its odd, flat tas sel of feathers that fall like a fringe at the side, and it belongs in the com pany it appears in, being of the same character as the coolie hat. Even street hats reflect the gorge ousness of the mode. The narrow brimmed sailor at the right of satin has a rich-looking band of silver braid about the crown and a silver-gray veil that lures our thoughts to veiled la dies in far lands, even with a pair of frank American eyes behind it. 6fr ~ Christmas in the Barnyard Oa MART GRAHAMI BONNER (Oopyrtlht .11. by Westorn Newspaper Unloa) HRISTMAS Is coming," crowed Mr. Rooster. "Christmas is com ing," gobbled Mr. Tur key. "IDon't be too'happy about it, for you may be eaten, Mr. Turkey," said Miss Hlen. And then site clucked. "('Christmas is com inc." "Gobhle, gobble, gob ble," said Mr. Turkey; "you needn't he so sure that you won't be eaten yourself." "Well. it's the best time of the year to be eaten. It's an honor." "Thatlir' what I've always said," gob bled Mr. Turkey. "Please, Miss lien, try to be original." "I may try to be many things," clucked Miss lien, "but it is impos sible for me to try to be original." "Why?" asked Mr. Tnrkey, who was much puzzled. "Because I don't know what it is to be original. I don't know what the word means. How can I be something if I don't even know what that some thing is? I can't try to be a thing I don't know anything about." "You could ask what it means, couldn't your inquired Mr. Turkey. "Are you too proud for that?" "Not too proud," said Miss Hen, "but I don't ask favors. I like to have them handed to me without the ask- + ing. It makes me appear so supe rior." "Absurd," said Mr. Turkey. "Well, If you think so then," "You May Be Eat. said Miss Hen, "I en, Mr. Turkey." suppose I will have to swallow my pride or my su periority and be friendly at this time of the year. Yes, I will actually ask you. What does it mean to be origi nal?' "I will tell you." said Mr. Turkey, "but first of all let me say that you cannot swallow your pride nor your superiority. Those are not things to eat. "You may rise above your pride, but it is impossible to swallow it" "Now, Mr. Turkey, I may be only a poor hen, but I know a few things. It's a saying and a perfectly good saying when I speak of swallowing my pride. Everyone knows no one means to chew it and swallow it actually. Be sides, as far as that is concerned, I might say to you that it was not cor rect to talk about rising above your pride as though pride were the ground and one took a trip in an airplane above it." "Let us not quarrel," said Mr. Tur key, "for the joyous Christmas season is fast approaching." "Yes," mutttered Miss Hen, "and I was fast approaching victory in that argument" Mr. Turkey pretended he hadn't heard. "Oh, by the way," he said, after a moment's pause, "you wanted me to tell you what it meant to be original." "Yes," clucked Miss Hen, while a smile passed over her hen face. "Well," continued Mr. Turkey, "when a creature is original and says original things it means he is saying things he has thought up himself and hasn't copied from someone else.

Toward eve ning when the doorbell rang I told our little colored maid to answer it and show Mr. Blank into the living room. I rushed into the room which was hal dark. some minutes later and threw my arms around the gentleman who rose to greet me and kissed him soundly only to hear a strange voice say, "Icalled to see If I could interest you in a wonderful set of books I am showing today." I backed to the light and turned it on to view a perfect stranger-a book agent. But Mr. Blank's timely arrival just then saved a little of my embar rassing explanation.--hicago Tribune.

A portrait of Benjamin Franklia, painted in Paris in 1778 by Joseph 81 frede Duplessis, and showing him as the American ambassador whom Parisians of that period knew, has ar rived in this country, the property of Michael Friedsam, the New York Eve uing Post states. Franklin presented the portrait to the Freres Perier, en gineers and owners of the Chaillot fire engine, when he left France, and It was from the Perier family that Mr. Friedsam purchased It this year. The portrait, whose gorgeous frame of the period is carved in the form of a serpent, is said to be typical of the best work of Duplessis, who was made a member of the academy in 1774, and was later appointed conservator of the museum of Versailles. In Versailles Ii a street called Duplessis, and a statue of him stands in a public square of the U Christmas Carol "What means this glory round our .feet," The Magi mused, "more bright than morn" And voices chanted clear and sweet, "Today the Prince of Peace is bornl" "What means that star," the Shepherds said, "That brightens through the rocky glen?"

All round about our feet shall shine A light like that the wise men saw, If we our loving ills incline To that sweet Life which is the Law. Bo shall we learn to under stand The simple faith of shep herds then, And, clasping kindly hand in hand, Sing, "Peace on earth, good will to men!t But they who do their souls no wrong, But keep at eve the faith 1 of morn, Shall daily hear the angel-song, "Today the Prince of Peace is born " -James Russell Lowell.
