For a Man's Desk
If there is anything a man appre
dates more than another It is a waste
basket to hold things that he doesn't
want or a case to hold things that he
does want. 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.

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. If one cares to present a
friend with the ultimate In luxurious
laundry bags, this afair will answer,
for it will grace any dressing rootm
and serve to catch soiled handle
chles and nckwear.

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. In the home
I the bell can be connected with push
buttons Installed, at three different
doors-front, kitchen and side, for ex
ample. When one button is pressed
a clear ring results, when the second
is operated a buss is produced, and
when the third button Is pushed a
combination buzz and ring results. In
the office or shop this bell will prove
most useful, since it can be used to
call three different persons without
necessitating them to count the num
ber of rings, as must often be done
when the customary signaling is em
ployed. This bell has no contact
points to burn out and no batteries
to replace.

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
"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

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
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.
