HERE are sev eral kinds of crackers, in cluding; whip crackers, but one pC the most Interesting Is what may be termed the fire less cracker. This Is usually somewhat in the shape of a fire cracker, and it is loaded, though not with an ex plosive 4which requires fire to set it off. The cracker now un- MAKIMi THE CAPS. de,. diSCUSSiOn is tbe Ions paper covered tube, with fringed euds. which we see frequently at dinners or evening parties, contain ing favors for the guests. You catch it by the ends :uid pull hard, and it opens with a pop. It cracks; hence the name cracker. The conteuts may be a gro tesque cap Tor you to wear at dinner, a Japanese paper napkin for luncheon use. a siik handkerchief to earcy home or a Christmas trinket. This kind of ciTwkcr i wry popular. in Eiiur!::nI there is one "crackery" which' iiiain.iiictuies and markets 17, 000,01:0 crackers every year. Nearly all A MONSTER CRACKEK. the workers employed are girls. One set of girls attends to the making of the cracker proper, while other sets make the fringes, print the labels and picture's and stuff the contents inside. Still others p;;ste the labels and the great variety of pictures on the outside of the crackers. A "crackery" getting ready for the Christmas demand Is a hive of industry. The one .nentioned employs about 700 girls, whose deft fingers collectively turn out thousands of crackers a day. Special machines are used for making the fringes, print ing the pictures and cutting out the caps, masks and other sur prises which th crackers contain. Crackers fur nish great fun at a social enter tainment. There is always the agreeable antici- patiou or crack ing open the hid den mystery and finding ut what It may be. .

She came from old j Puritan stock on her fa- ' y ther's side and from a r.o- k. x lonial Virginian family on TT 1fnM . her mother's. She had the tall and forceful figure of her New England forbears added to the tender jrrace of the southern woman, una wltii these she had the beauty . of sweet brown eyes, waving brown hair and such a color and complexion that they xmight he called fairy gifts; also she had visions of a career, i She was not left unsought. An anx I ious line of admirers filed through the i wide gates of the old plantation home and walked un between the box hedges j to the wide veranda, where Mary gen erally sat with her maiden aunt, the latter making wonderful devices in tat ting, and Mary, with her easel before her, perfunctorily making sketches which she rarely finished, but which her aunt religiously preserved. The Boutwell plantation had been a large one before the war, but under the inefficient care of the aunt had dwindled steadily. Miss Boutwell had unlimited power as guardian to buy; sell, mortgage or borrow and lend. The first waruiug of the final calamity came along late in the fall and was in the shape of a threatened foreclosure of the mortgage on the last of the once vast possessions the big and almost empty house. Mary had spent money lavishly in college and gave and lent as her generous aunt had done in igno rance of the real state of things. On the 1st of January this money must be paid. The aunt had been notified, but let the matter drag, as she felt that something would turn up to save their home. Mary was trying to understand the situation, but in vain. And the young men came a-wooing. They were all made welcome by the romantic aunt and all invited to dinner or supper, with the old open handed lib erality, but Mary showed no favor to any or e. But that Is not saying that she did not think often of Bert Alh?n. She could appreciate his character. She had just come from college, where much stress was laid upon mental at tainment, aud she wondered how it was that a young man ouly a clerk in a lawyer's oliice could have learned so much. She knew that he had lived all his life here, that his parents had died poor after the devastating war, that he had had a bitter struggle, but she could not understand how he had learned so .much that the other young men were totally ignorant of art. for lnstau e, art. from its first inception to the present day. in a!! its branches aud ramifications. What fcbo did not take into account was that Bert had known her from In fancy and that for her sake and to be nble to properly appreciate her career liJ gave every moment he could spare to the study of all that books could teach him and that when he had busi ness north he fairly haunted the art galleries and picture stores and stu dios. IIH heart stink as the conviction was forced upon him that it would be uiauy years lefore Mary could hope for success, if ever, for somehow he came to see that, while she had unde niable talent, she was not a genius, and he knew that she had not the pow er of steady and continuous work, which sometimes almost equals real genius. And he felt, too, that he could plan a career for Mary that would be far more satisfying to her than the painting of mediocre pictures, but he dared not give voice to his thought The autumn passed, while Bert tried In every way his fertile mind could Notce to our Customers.

The box was large and really quite handsome and was provided wi tha li" holes. The splendid dog would be taken in it to the plantation" smd. sat on fife veranda, in daylight, or, at least, that was Bert's plan.

Christmas fell on Saturday this year. Bert had expected to le there every evening during the week to help, but Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday passed without a word from him, nor did he come. At first Mary was surprised, then hurt, then indignant. Ho should have sent her word at least if he had not In tended to ct'.nie, and she went about with n hi'ititeiied color, but with a heavier heart than the occasion war ranted or Nile realized. The skies were dark and ifie house glfKiiny. jiad she was growing ve retired of the whole thing since Bert had noxcome to help, lie was 'i c:s;:il!e and so cheery! Well, she had lived twenty years with out him t'tvl il )'.il!!t'ss would not die if he did not conif at all. The re::son f Bert's apparent defec tion was that Mr. Burnside. his em ployer, was dangerously ill. He was nlnno in tlu frli1 li:irln! no roloHvn living, aud it became Bert's duty to remain with him aud take care of him, for Mr. Burnside could not bear Bert to leave- him. Bert had written to Mary. and. with the strange generosity which strikes any man when it regards the woman he loves, Bert gave an old negro a dollar to take tbe letter. The dolhtr and a saloon proved too much for the old man, and the next morning I he was carried to the calaboose, while the letter lay a soaked scrap of paper in the mud. Mary loved dogs.
