The Chinese New Year.
!he Chinese New Year is a movable
ist because of the difference in their
lendar and that used by the Christian
rld. This year it will fall upon Jan-
fry 30. The New Year holiday period
rers 30 days In China, during which
le no unnecessary official business is
Insacted. Generally the holiday be-
is 10 days before the New Year and
itinues 20 days after, although this
ries according to the orders of the
irt circular issued annually. The
V is devoted largely to religious eel-
rations, although fireworks and
sting are in evidence. The most im-
rtant event of the period is the feast
lanterns. This always comes five
yjs after New Year's and is a time of
liant illumination. So far as possl-
the Chinese in foreign lands cele-
ite their national holiday after their
itive custom and the Chinese quarter
every large city gives evidence of
ptivlty at this season.
The Russian Festival.
In Russia the New Year festival lasts
weeks- It begins at midnight on
Year's eve "when the czar attends
ilic mass. At the stroke of 12 a
rnonade of one hundred shots is fir- i
after which the revelry begins. The
jets of all the towns are gaily dec-
Lted and festivities are evident ev-
vhere. These end at the Eve of
Helnek," the last day of the festival.

All the members assemble in the Stock

night the chairman of the board stands
in the east gallery, which resembles a

strikes he presses a button and a flood
of additional light is the signal for be

other good friends. And such dinners!
The families really received a week's
supply of groceries.
Saturday was a busy day and I did
not get my dinner or read my Herald
until after our little gathering was
over at the county dispensary Christ
mas eve. When I read the editorial,
"The Spell of Christmas," every word
struck a responsive chord in my heart.
"Was it not. true that from representa-
' tives of everv rftlierion in El Paso.
some little gift, some rememraance of
Christmas had come to "my children?"
"Was it not "the season of greatest
outpouring of human sentiment and
sympathy?" Froni Jew, Catholic and
Protestant gifts had come to these
children and in the same generous
spirit gifts were given out to the Jew,
Catholic and Protestant Our work
is for no one religion, for no one
people, it is for the sick children, sick
mothers and suffering little babies.
Two hundred and fifty children were
made happy on that night. I wish all
of our friends could have been present
and seen the happy little faces. Six
hundred presents were given out, in
cluding 150 new dolls; 125 pounds of
candy, three boxes of apples, two boxes
of oranges and 30 pounds of nuts.-were
Little brothers and sisters who could
not attend were remembered with
gifts. It was beautiful to see the 'older
brothers and sisters bring the little
ones and return for them when the fun
As each child entered the dispensary
he was presented with a bag of candy,
nuts and fruit, and after all were p
sembled the distribution of presents
began. First, horns, .rattles and music
boxes were passed around, and then
the real presents!
The little infantile paralysis case
was presented witn a nice, warm
sweater, donated by Miss Alice Fitzpat
rlck. Next little Jesus Soto was called.
Jesus was out to his first party after
typhoid. He was fitted with a beau
tiful coat sent from New York by I. L.
Greenbaum & Son. This coat had' been
sent to the Bee Hive to be given to
the poorest and most deserving boV
therefore Mr. Goodman sent it to us,
for he knew we Avould find that boy.
Juanita was next called, and as she
came up to receive a beautiful doll
and carriage sent in by Horace B. Ste
vens's young daughter Margaret, you
would hardly recognize the Juanita
who was so carefully wheeled to the
dispensary last summer. ,
"Rosa Ornelas" sounded next and
the little dark eyed beauty came up
to get a gocart and dolly from Kress's.
Andrea Torres, etc, etc., every child
had a name and to every name was
fitted a present.
Leonardo was there and even though
his chair has not as yet reached El
Paso he was happy and content with
his many handsome presents. Beryl
Burdick seemed to have taken an es
pecial Interest In Leonardo and sent
In toys and warm clothing for the lad.
Little Manuelo Rico was home, too
ill to come. "Manuelo has pneumonia,
but his mother was there to receive
his gifts, and among other things ho
received 30 cents. You wonder about
the 30 cents Can't you see the little
fellow going from store to store pric
ing everything when he is able to be
out? No newly rich could be more
important- The following letter from
postmaster Smith's little grandson will
explain the 30 cents:
