t'P-TO-DATE GIFTS FOR MURES.
At this season so many demands are
made upon one's resources for wedding
gifts and others, that it takes careful
thought and planning to send something
pretty and acceptable, without risking
the harrowing duplications that so often
spoil a present.'
THE WEDDING CIIKST.
The modern girl takes as much pride
in her well stocked wedding chest as in
her personal outfit, and it is becoming
increasingly the custom to give even the
littlo school girl matching sets of spoons
and other pieces that will add to th
furnishing of the bridal chest some day,
There is a quaint old timey flavorabout
REAL ESTATE
INSURANCE
DIANA PAT.
Orange Spoon
this custom that harks back to olde
lands, where a girl's dowry is provided
from the time of her birth. The whole
world of woman-kind is alike in the
pride felt in substantial and handsome
belongings for the home.
' EMBROIDERED LINENS.
Embroidered linens for table and
household use are always prized for this
outfit, and cross stitch patterns are as
much in vogue for towels here as they
have always been abroad.
For doilies, centres and carving cloths,
Madeira open work is most popular but
one sees a good deal of heavier solid de
signs while the amount of handsome
lace used with such pieces is limited only
by the length of the purse strings.
''THE DIANA PATTERN." -
Among the new designs in silver
nothing is daintier than the , wreath
pattern shown in the illustration.
This is called Diana" after the Greek
Goddess of Hunting, and is made up
with a soft gray finish, so perfectly imi
tating the style and appearance of the
most expensive sterling ware that it de
ceives even a jeweler, nor does the mark
"Alvin Patent" show that the ware is
plate, since the same concern makes
sterling pieces as well as fine plate.
THE WRAPPING OK GIFTS.
Half the effect of a gift is lost if it is V
not properly wrapped and tied. Silver
ware placed in a satin lined case appears
especially creditable to the giver and at
tractive to the recipient. ' There are no
end of pretty separate pieces to be had
in matching pattern, so that any desired
amount may be invested. If only inti
mate friends and relatives would con
sult together before selecting their gifts,
girls would receive matching pieces in
stead of hodge-podge of patterns, also
exasperating duplicates would be avoid
ed. '
Where silver is to be stored it should
be perfectly clean and dry, and enclosed
in bags of canton flannol, then it needs
only a brisk rubbing to be ready for use
at short notice.
CHINA AND GLASS.
China and glass offer another field
for co-operative selection. The "Open
Stock" patterns that dealers carry are
the best choice since the pieces can al
ways be matched up if broken, or added
to as the need for more arises,
BLUE AND WHITE.
Blue and white designs are standard
favorites, and the old "Onion" pattern
can scarcely be improved upon. India
wear with its quaint pagodas and bridges
in the same color is another popular
choice. White with a touch of gold is
always elegant if the china and gilt are
of. first quality. Cheap gilt is an abomi
nation and wears off quickly. fSrystal
ana Colonial glass is rather morqr a vored
than cut glass this season.

Dedication.
Dedication services at Shady Grove in
connection with the Thanksgiving serv
ices on Nov. 30, 1911. We thank
every contributor and especially the
good peoplo of Union City, for their
valuable assistance in building this
ciiurch on the ground that has long
been the place for Methodist services.
The ladies will serve dinner and the
public is cordially invited.
Dr. W. A. Freeman was to preach
the sermon, but since he has been placed
on the Dyersburg district and Rev. W.
C. Waters has been assigned to the
Union City district and should Dr,
Freeman's business be such that he
cannot fill the place, Rev. Waters, our
new presiding elder, will be asked to do
so. '
Change of Train.
The "Nightrider" , running from
Meridian to Union City will be changed
on Sunday, the 27th inst., to run
through from Meridian to Cairo and we
understand the schedule will be changed
to read leaving Cairo about 6 a. m. and
return at 9 p. m. That will give Union
City still better railroad accomodations
than she now has. The M. & O. is
making this change, it is understood, to
better take care of the express between
the points on the route.
