A CHRISTMAS GIFT
Useful Offering That Eveiy Man
Is Sure to Appreciate.
A man is only a nan after all, and
he likes useful gifts, no matter who
lie may be. If you arc wealthy or If
your income is quite moderate the fol
lowing gift suggestions may be adopt
ed, as they are things that may cost
only a little or may be quite expensive:
It is rather curious that woman's one
Idea of a gift to a man is a cravat,
for it is the one thing that a man de
tests having selected for him. But a
man can nearly always wager that a
woman will get him a cravat of a color
that is not becoming to him or one
that is too absurd to wear. And yet
hundreds of thousands of women insist
upon giving cravats for Yuletide gifts!
If you are overpowered by this idea
please have a little mercy on mankind
and select black and white cravats,
for they are smart and are becoming
to every man. Silk knitted ties are
•gain in vogue, especially those that
are three to four inches wide. Ties of
heavy faconne silks are also indorsed

men who never fail to get at least six
leather mounted desk calendars and as
many stamps and elastic bandboxes.
Of course these are needfuls, but the
man who possesses a desk generally
has all such articles.

Christmas Mass Always Well Attend

In Paris Christmas day is kept as a
religious festival, and many who never
dream of goinjr to church on any other
day in the year make it a point of at
tending mass on le Jour de Noel, and
the blaze of the tapers falls on crowd
ed congregations, men. women and
children, kneeling, sitting and stand

and Notre Dame.
Midnight mass is held on Christmas
eve. A waxen image of the infant
Saviour lies upon a little hutch of real
straw in a cave built of miniature
stones. The Virgin mother kneels over
the child, and to quote a verse from
one of the quaintest old carols:
