Tbe ancients of Peru, by a curious coincidence—for there could not pos sibly have been any Intercourse with their contemporaries in India and Egypt—seem to have used much the same kind of processes In printing their designs upon the fabrics they manufactured. Both Herodotus and Pliny, among early historians, have told us about the cloths of vegetable fiber made by the ancients ; but In all likelihood the fabrics of the Peruvians were of even a more remote date. Tn some respects the methods of today hear strong resemblance to the older practice. The chief difference con sists In the patterns now being en graved upon copper rollers and several colors being printed at one time. Just as today the coloring matter of dyes Is not affixed by merely printing It on the material, but Is secured by means of a substance known as mordant, so did the Peruvians moke nse of a prop erty which caused the dye to adhere and to withstand a test of thousands of years' wear and tear. Experts have declared that In the direction of tech nical and artistic value the designs la question have no equal. Up to Date. Secretary Lane, speaking of the way In which the war has changed our viewpoint of life, tells the following: They were to be married shortly and now they were sitting In the study meditating on the blissfulness of fu turity. "Algy," said the girl suddenly, "every morn you bring me violet* which at even you have culled, don't you ?" "I do," responded the ever faithful, "let them cost what they will." "I've been thinking," continued the girl, "that If you would send beef steaks and mutton chops instead it would make a lot bigger hit with fa ther and mother, and be a lot cheaper for you, too."

SjW'f I.ACKED a week to WH Christmas. but Ted k *4 Newton, office boy for É Willis & Co., hnd been In holiday humor since the first of the month k and Just now was B caught by the full in fluence of Yuletlde. His eyes sparkled as I he lifted various pack 1 ages from a box that had Just arrived by ex press. Amid his chuckling and gloat ing smiles (here came a check. "What you got there, Ted?" sounded n sudden voice, and Ted turned to be confronted by his "boss." "If you please, sir," he stammered, "It's my regular Christmas box from the folks home on the farm," "Let's see what you've got, Ted," suggested John Willis, and he fished ][ JV m out a cake of maple sugar, bit off a fragment and smacked his Ups. "Genuine stuff, eh?" he laughed Jovially. "You're a lucky lad, Ted," spoke Mr. Willis, his voice a trifle husky. Then he went into his private office and for ten minutes sat Idly In his swivel chair, a away upon his face. "X can taste that maple sugar yet!" he sighed Anally. "Let me see. It's two years since I've visited the old home town. I'm ashamed of It, for we've run down to Nellie's folks only twice since we were married. Maybe she's longing for a sight of the coun try, too. Hello !" He had picked up his mall and be gan to rifle the slltted envelopes. The first lines of the letter he opened read : "My dear daughter Nellie: We are so hopeful that yon may give us a Christmas visit this year, and you and Mr. Willis would be so welcome!" "Why, this won't do!" ejaculated John Willis, replacing the letter that had been carelessly opened by the of fice mall clerk. "Dear old people—and Nellie 1" His heart suddenly smote him. Nel lie never murmured at the exactions of business. Faithfully she accom panied him to social functions, and all the time a conception of their hollow superficlaUty bad ended in a dream of the dear old life, where true hearts and quiet, humble pleasures seemed to beckon longingly. "I'm going to take a run down to the country to look after my old home," John Willis told Nellie that evening. "The tenant has left and 1 want to see what can be done with It." He returned two days later. "Saw your folks, dear," he said, and Nellie's famished soul greeted the tender word like a cooling draught to a thirsting spirit "Look here, Tuesday Is Christ mas eve. Those anowclad hHls at home have made me hungry for a sleigh ride. Be ready to take a regu lar old-fashioned frolic." And the« awoke in Nellie the most extravagant soul of hope. "Bundle up good," directed her hn* band the next evening, as a doubl« team attached to a roomy cutter an *4' Us rived In front of the house. "Now, then, snuggle under those robes and let us see If I have forgotten how to drive. Thirty miles—do you think you can stand it?" "Oh, John!" she almost gasped. "That would be our home town. You don't mean—" "That I am going to take you to your folks? Yes, dear, and stay there with you over the holidays. I say," bracing and thrilling as they started down a clear smooth road full speed, "this Is like the old times, when I used to steal a kiss from yon, and— I'll take one now !" She was crying for Joy. Her.trem bllng hand stole to his arm and lightly rested there. Her heart was singing amid a newly awakened happiness. "The river, hill and old bridge!" shouted John an hour later, alive with enthusiasm. "Bonfire on the skating patch and—whoa I Nellie, this is my Christmas present to yon." He had halted In front of the old Willis homestead, pretentious In Its mansionlike beauty. "I've decided to give up the crowded city. Well, what is It?" She could not tell him at that p rente moment. The merry sleigh bells rang out a gay song of renewed youth and tentment In a dash for Nellie's old home. She ran up the steps to greet loving outstretched arms and fond cries of heartsome welcome. • "Home at last I" cried John WIUIs, bursting Into the brightly decorated narlor radiant 'with "Why! you look like a girt gain, Nellie!
