ChildVBtC S Itl ChristfTlCIS -TOtPTl ! ' You mast come, everyone, to the frolic and fun J1111 i i ' i And the toys and the joys found in Toyland I " 7h1 A Shop Window 1 i I'' I A new 'and particularly attractive Jbox for holding gifts of handkerchiefs !)s a small automobile, and it costs snly a quarter with three small ker- fchiefs. For carrying in the pocket are email tacarlet leather photograph cases about Vve inches long and two wide. There fare places for four small photos. I found last nltfht that the things at the Gamble-Desmond store, which . are advertised at reduced prices are just the things you want for Christ mas gifts. Brand new holiday stock, only the lots are broken in some in stances, or there are only a few of a kind. It is a perfectly wonderful op portunity for the Xmas buyer, or any body else for that matter. , Nice for the baby are the humpty dumpty toys that are weighted at the fbottom. so: that no matter how hard ,you knock them they will immediately 'right themselves. ' Dainty 'little ornaments for the young girls' coiffure are delicate sprays of frosted silver or gold tiny leaves. These wreaths are combined with charming, ribbons in a number of ways. . ' AH sorts of walking toys may be had for a quarter. There's a tin Teddy bear that after you wind him up wob bles along in a very funny way. What is known as the apron bag appears in a new shopping purse. It is oval in shape with the upper edge folded over and. fastened with a patent fastener. Beneath the edge of the folded piece is stitched a heavy, leather band to form the handle. The elastic belt imitating pompa dour ribbon is a novelty. The pink ones with flowers in dull pastel tints are particularly lovely, - especially when worn with a gilt buckle. There are very attractive tailore'd h'lrt waists that are worn with a white tailored skirt. The shirts have turned down collar and turnback' cuff3 embroidered in a tiny design and scal aml ..in - . A traveling case for a tooth brush Is within the powers of unskilled fin gers. In making this use a piece of rubber cloth two inches , wide and more, than double trie brush length. Form it into a long narrow bag to be Slipped into a second bag fashioned from ilk or ribbon. The mouth of the second or outer bag is finished neatly and a draw string of narrow cord completes the case. , A neat matchbox for a bachelor's room is made by covering a square With cream colored art linen, which has' been embroidered in some neat design, A tiny stein can be fastened to the card by means, of narrow rib bon placed at the top and bottom of the stein and tied on the back of the card.
