Here are both these sen sible gifts, made to match, and happy is the man who will receive them at Christmas time. The waste basket has a foundation of very light board, covered with a dull rose-colored tapestry and finished with dark-green braid. Handles with tas sels to match prove convenient. A me dallion of figured tapestry bound by braid completes this practical aip handsome gift. The case for papers Is made to match the basket. --------------'--'-" Y~ Something New in Bags A basket crocheted of twine and 'dipped in shellac, is allowed to dry, after being shaped to suit the fancy of its maker. It is then adorned with odd yarn flowers, as shown in the picture above, and converted into a pretty bag by lining It with silk and extending the silk above the top of the basket. The silk gathers up at the top on a ribbon.

Fowl have the right of way in air, warns the director of military aero nautics. This Is justice indeed, since birds flew first. But this is not all. Recently many towns along the Atlantic coast have been visited with dead bird showers. Aviators flying by a town would see a flock of wild fowl coming their way. They would set their machine guns and let the bullets fly. Presently a prominent citizen walk Ing below would be hit with a large. bloody bird. He complained to the town, and the town complained to the department of agriculture. Then the federal migratory bird law between the United States and Grdat Britain was referred to, and it was found that shooting birdvs from airplanes is un lawful. a Plano Comapany Musical Gifts FOR v CHRISTMAS BEST AND CHEAPEST Pianos, Inner-Players King Band Instruments Violins Music Boxes Mandolins Dinner Chimes Ukuleles Victrolas Banjos Music Cabinets Guitars Saxophones Marimbas 540 BARONNE STREET Triple Tone Electric BelL Three separate and distinct sonods are given by an electric bell which op erates on ordinary lighting current by means of a transformer.

Santa's Christmas Day By MARY GRAHAM BONNER (Copyright, 191, by Western k.ewspaper Lnloni ANTA CI.AUS was back in his workshop. It looked very ,mil ity. And no 'wonder. If you could have taken the trip which Snllta Claius took yo U would have sooIl tile res in why. th iuh it would lit be hard for anty o(f us to gucs the rear-)n why. ' Santa Claus on the niaiht before ('Chris' ias had stopped at thlie toy stores anl :v had taken the toys which he had left there so that the childrent could stI thea' and write letters telling \what they w:n'edl. By that time he had packs, aind packs of toys. as many as his cleigh could hold, and while his worlshop was empty there was a nice, cheerful ap Ipearance about it. There were lots of tools around, however, andlll there w:ere hits of cloth left from nmaking dresses and hlts for dollies, and there were little ends of ribbons which had tied Iankages. There were pieces of wood, too, which had been sawed off when boats were made. There were many other thinjq which showed It had been a toy shop. It looked as if it had been full of toys only a little while before-and not only toys but of every sort of a Christmas present for every sort of a child. A fire was burning cheerfully in the big stove and was making the work shop nice and warm. But there was an open fire, too, at the end of the shop with a big chair in front of it. On a rug beside the chair sat Boy of the North. his head against the knee of Santa Claus. He was wagging his tall from time to time and looking into his master's eyes. "Good old Boy of the North, never forgets his master!" said Santa Claus. And Boy of the North was happy that Santa Claus was so pleased by the warm wrapper and slippers which he had got for his master. "Good old Boy of the North," said Santa Claus again, patting him, and Boy of the North sniffed the air, and looked at Santa Claus as though to say: "Who wouldn't be good if he be longed to you? You're always cheer ful and happy and always thinking of Il Look at Children All Over the World." others. You like children and you like to hear them laugh and you work for them all the year. You're their King, King Santa Claus, and you're my mas ter." So Boy of the North tried to talk to Santa Claus and Santa Claus under stood. He stroked the dog's head, and as he smiled, looking into the fireplace, he said: "It was a wonderful trip, Boy of the North. I love to sit down here in my easy chair on Christmas day and think about It. Oh, I saw so many lovely children. They were asleep and such nice smiles were playing around their mouths. I hoped, Boy of the North, I hoped they were thinking about me, because I like to have them fond of me." And Boy of the North presed nearer as though to say: "They're fond of you just as I am fond of you-just as fond as can be " "My reindeer had such a good time, too. You'll have to go out and see them in their stalls soon, and hear how they had to slow up whenever they made lots of noise, for I was so afraid they would awaken the children. "And now, Boy of the North, you know what I must do!" Boy of the North stretched mnself and got up. He followed Santa Claus to a corner of the workshop and then back to a window while Santa Cla!s carried a long, long telescope. "Thlis Is my magic telescope which you see me use each year, Boy of the North," said Santa Clanus. "I look at children all over the world, and when they smile and I can see how happy they are then I am being thanked for my work. "It was very hard this year to get all that the children wanted. Some years are harder than others, but the children understood and I haven't seen a single scowl. No, Boy of the North, not a single scowl. "Oh, what thanks! Every child ev erywhere is smiling, Boy of the North, and every child is happy I" And there were tears in those merry twinkling eyes of Santa Claus-nyes, tears--but tears of joy at the smiles of children whom he had been able to see through his magic telescope.
