GIFTS FOR CHILDREN.
Santa Clana I'm ?lshen tho Christinas
Tree, but Xot ttio Presents.
Ella .Morris Krctschmar writes enter?
tainingly of "'Tho Christmas Tree" in
Tho Woman's Homo Companion, and in
the course of her article says:
"Do not make the mistake of hanging
gifts on the tree. Tho tree is from Santa
Claus, the gifts from family and frii mis
?a distinction which should bo inado
clear tn each litdo mind. And label I
each gift before placing it under the
tree?tho proper placofbr all Christmas]
gifts. Sauta Claus is sure to be given;
credit for anything anonymous. The'
writer ouoo received a shook not easily |
forgotten. After much shopping, sup?
plemented by work at home, a beautiful
troo, with numerous gifts beneath, glad?
dened tho eyes and heart of her ono aud
only on Christmas morning. Everything
was duly enjoyed throughout tho day,
but in the twilight two little arms wore
slipped about mother's neck, and a soft
voice asked: 'Mother, why is it that
everybody gives mo pretty things on
Christmas but you and father?Aunt
Mary, Undo Edwin, Eloise, Mamie, all!
the rest of tho family and oven my
friends?all but just you: I would rather i
havo something from you than from any
one, even Santa Claus.'
"Think of it! After so much effort,
and no explanations possible! Santa
Claus still gets credit for tho tree, but I
mother's and father's gifts aro plainly \
"There aro some parents whoso con-j
sciences are so painfully constructed
that to them tho Santa Clans fiction
seems a wicked falsehood not to be en?
couraged. Wo pity them aud lament
their honesty, if consistent, they must
frown upon all that man's imagination
has done to adorn life, to embellish tho
world. As for Saara Claus, may ho not
be regarded by the Christian as typical
of tho giver of good gifts, and to tho
honest nineteenth century pagau does
his coming not commemorate tho birth
of tho acknowledged highest type of
earthly man? Santa Claus needs no
"Do not regard the Christmas tr?e a
'bother,' even if fatigue aud sacrifice
arc its price Remember how rich you
are in having somu ono in your heart
and home who is expecting Santa Claus,
and remember tho splendid privilege of !
conferring so much happiness."
Those of Mixed Blood Prouder of tho
Kanaka Thun the AiiKlo-Saxon Purt.
Hawaiian ?women have a wonderful
charm of manner, and their smiling
faces, dark, lustrous eyes and soft voices
have a fascmati/*v about them that can?
not be easily ief ed. They carry them?
selves with jce and dignity pecul?
iarly their own. Cven the flower wom?
en, with their pretty lei customs,
though their feet may be bare, have a
certain dignity of bearing never seen in
tho Anglo-Saxon of the same class.
Hawaiian women aro proud of their
blood, those of mixed blood prouder of
the dark strain, which often comes by
ancestry of chiefs. It is one of tho strong
characteristics of both men and women
?stronger in the women, who are of
more pensive and intense nature?that
whero white blood predominates their
first loyalty and pride is in the Hawai- j
Among the notable Hawaiian women !
at the ball wero Mrs. Iaukea, wife of
"Major Iaukea; Mrs. Irene Brown, the]
daughter of a chief, John lui, whose
lands once included all of Pearl Harbor;
Mrs. George Becklcy, wife of a promi?
nent Hawaiian formerly a member of
the council of state; Mrs. Emma Naku
nia, a clever and accomplished woman,
whose scholarly attainments make her a
unique figuro in political aud social cir- j
cles in Honolulu; Mrs. Rouges, wife of
tho Swedish consul; Miss Ernestine
Rose, Misses Parker and Ah Fong, and
many others whose beauty of face and
figure would win admiration anywhere
Some arc pure Hawaiian, some Ha?
waiian and American blood, and the
Misses Ah Fong are daughters of Ah
Fong Choy, the Chinese millionaire,
and a Hawaiian mother. Tho Misses
Parker are daughters of Samuel Parker,
part Hawaiian, formerly a member of
Queen Lilinokalani's cabinet; their
mother, a pure Hawaiian, is a tall and
handsome woman of the stately type,
with white hair, the clearest brown skin
and largo dark eyes.
I saw her at Kawaihao church on Suu
day in a black satin holoku, falling in
graceful lines from the shoulders, a
large black hat with nodding feathers
?all black?bringing out with striking
effect her dark eyes and white hair. As
she stood in the doorway fur a moment
sho was a picture that would havo de?
lighted an artist. Mrs. Ueorgo Beckley
is ono of the most graceful young ma?
trons in Honolulu. She accompanied
the party of Queen Kapiolani, wife of
Kalakaua, and the then Princess Lili
uokalaui on their visit to the United
States aud to England ten years ago to
attend the queen's lirst jubilee. .Mr.
Beckley, like bis wife, is part Hawai?
ian. On his mother's side he is a de?
scendant of a high chief of Kamehame
ha blood. They have a son who is one
of the promising young students at the
Stanford university. While there were
many Hawaiiaus at the ball, many of
them royalists, others of equal prom?
inence staid at home, not from any
bitterness, but from tho still lingering
sentiment of loyalty to the old order of
Party lines, which have never been
very taut, arc relaxing more and more,
and tho royalists who were at the ball
regarded it as a purely social function
and complimentary to a distinguished
guest. President and Mrs. Dole haii
asked a large number to assist in receiv?

Th? Modern Writing Desk and Its Ap?

The Ecyival of tho Madras.
Tho writing desk in its modern dain
tiness is a \ery attractive affair and is
prized by every woman who is fond of
proi ty and convenient borne adornnieuts.
The principal charm of a design pre?
sented by The Decorator and Furnisher
is artistic simplicity. It is a well pro?
portioned, ueat little affair well adapt?
ed to a corner of tho Inane room, and
the accommodations are ample for the
correspondence of the average woman.
If one has n taste fur joinery ami tho
ability to lay out the working plans, a
little desk may he made by tho homo
amateur at comparatively small expense.
Of course the desk itself, however
pretty, needs the many necessary little
artistic appointments, and tho opportu?
nities for securing such are many. Tho
fancy poods stores and counters aro
crowded with dainty desk "fixings" at
a wido range of prices and quality. Sil?

Mince Moat For Pies.
The following timely recipe is from
Mrs. Lincoln's cookbook:
A cupful chopped meat, l'J cupful
raisins, i$6 cupful currants, 1*^ cupful
brown sugar, 1 .1-55 cupful molasses, 3
cupfuls chopped apples, a cupful meat
liquor, 2 teaspoonfuls salt, 2 teaspoon?
fuls cinnamon, a half toaspouuful maco,
a half teaspoonful powdered cloves, a
lemon (grated rind and juice), one-'
fourth piece citron, a cupful cider, 8
teaspoonfuls rosewater. Mix in the or?
der given, using enough of the meat
liquor to make quite moist, and cook in
a porcelain kettle until the apples and
raisins are soft. Do not add the cider or
rosewater uutil the mixture is cooked.
Meat from the lower part of the
round, that has a little fat and nobono,
is the best fur pie meat.
The Revival of the Madras.
Some .ten years ago the popularity of
the madras curtain was at its height.
Since that time Irish point, embroidered
muslins, ruffled curtains of coarser mull.
and very fine cheesecloth have all. had
their turn. Now tho seesaw is about to
go up again, and the madras is once
more to be ou the elevated end, says
Tho Puritan. Therefore fortunate in?
deed is the woman who has carefully
laid by her madras. The revival of these
pretty curtains will undoubtedly com?
mend itself to the majority, for they
are serviceable as well as attractive and
can bo bought either by the yard or al?
ready made up.
A Novel Dessert.
A novel dessert may be made as fol?
lows: Put 3 ounces of preserved ginger,
cut small, into a bowl, with 3 dessert?
spoonfuls of the .sirup, the well beaten
yolks of 4 eggs and a pint of cream.
Mix well aud cook slowly in a double
boiler until it thickens, which will bo
in about 10 minutes. Removo from the
fire and heat with a wire egg heater un?
til it is nearly cold. Add 2 teaspoonfuls
of pulverized sugar and au ounce of gel?
atin, previously dissolved in enough
warm water to cover it, straining this
latter. Beat until thoroughly mixed I
and place in a mold on ice.
How to Keep Food Hot.
When it is m cessary to keep a meal
hot for a belated comer, do not set the
plate holding the food in a hot oven,
thus discoloring the china as well as
drying the food. Instead place the plate
upon the lire over a pan of boiling wa?
ter, covering the plate with a pan that
will just lit over the edge of tho plate.
The food will keep hot, and there will
be enough steam from the boiling water
in the lower pun to keep the plate moist
and prevent its contents becoming dried,
says one authority in such matters.
Boil 20 sweet and 20 bitter almonds,
blanched and ponnded, in a few spoon?
fuls of milk for 5 or 10 minutes. Wheu
cold, stir in the yolks of 5 eggs, well
beaten, with a spoonful of cream, add 3
ounces of sugar and 2 wintglassfuls of
thu Ust brandy. When thoroughly mix
J?d. ponr in a quart of cream. Set it over

if George Avery of this neighborhood
ever digs out another cellar drain, ho
will begin at the outside and dig in,
because nobody can tell what, a cellar
drain hold.? until its whole length has
been explored. Though a cellar drain
has no apparent connectiou with hens,
Avery has learned otherwise and paid
more than $50 for learning.
Avery has bought a lot of hens for
three or four years and has made money
out of then). When his neighbors saw
how he prospered, they went to raising
hens also, and when tho spring of 1807
opened there was more poultry running
loose in Whiting Hill than in any other
place east of Bangor. Somo timo last
May tho young chickens aud early broil?
ers began to disappear, going out healthy
aud strong in the morning and ueglect
ing to show up at night. On somo days
Avery lost four or live, and then tho
average would reach 10 e)r 12 every day
for a week. Tho neighbors began to loso
chickens too. They complained to Avery
about his dog, and Avery entered a
counter complaint about their eats, and
both sides wero getting hot about it
when Sam Adams solved the mystery
by seeing a black fox in tho very act of
carrying away a plump cockerel. Of
course it is a bad thing to have any kind
of fox carry away one's poultry, but. if
a man has got to surrender his hens to
tho foxes ho would sooner see a black
fox get them than ono of any other col?
or. Tho reason for this is that a black
fox wears an overcoat worth anywhere
from $100 to ?150, and tho man who
captures tho fox aud sells the pelt is
pretty sure to get good pay for his hens.
In less than a week every hen man in
Whiting Hill bad turned fox hunter aud
was out with traps, guns and poison.
Every morning aud night they devoted
at least an hour to stalking the black
fox, and everyday tho black fox sneaked
in aud carried oil all tho hens ho want- j
ed. The hen raisers caught A very *s dog, :
imd be caught two of their cats, and all
of them caught plenty of hens, but in
spiro of all tho blandishments they
could hold out the black fox absolutely
refused to get into a trap or eat poison
or expose himself as a target for loaded
guns. Meantime tho hens kept growing
fewer, until Avery sold out and quit
the business, though ho continued to i
hunt for the fox whenever he had time, j
After the last big rain Avery's cellar 1
drain refused to carry off the overflow,
and the water backed up until the cel?
lar was half full. Avery began to dig
from tho iuside, making a hole through
tho cellar wall and working down to
see what stopped it up. When Avery
was half way to tho outlet, he sent his
boy outside to watch for water while
he gave some vigorous punches with a
long pole. Tho third time he drovo tho
pole into the drain the water began to
spout, and the boy yelled:
"Oh, father, it's coming. It's black.
Avery looked out of the cellar win?
dow in time to see a very fat and very
wet black fox scamper off to tho woods.
Then he sat down and said words that
he would thrash his boy for uttering.
The fox had been living in Avery's cel?
lar drain all along and hail brought in
so many hens that the accumulated mass
of bones had stopped up tho outlet.?
Whiting Hill (Me.) Letter in New York
Lilian Bell Homesick In London.
Miss Lilian Bell, tho Chicago author?
ess who is making her first visit to Eu?
rope, has evidently encountered home?
sickness, and in The Ladies' Homo
Journal uniquely and vividly describes
that hitherto unpictured malady: "If I
have discovered nothing else in tho brief
time since I left my native laud, it is
worth while to realize the truth of all
the poetry and song written on foreign
shores about bome. To ono accustomed
to travel only in America and to feel
at homo with all tho different varieties
of one's countrymen such sentiments
are no more than vers do socicte. Hut
now I know what beimweh is?the
Swiss word for homo pain. I can un?
derstand that the Swiss really die of it
.sometimes. The home pain ! Neuralgia, I
you know, and most other acute pains
only attack one set of nerves. But
beimweh hurts all over. There is not a
muscle of tho body nor tho most re?
mote fiber of tho brain nor a tissuo of
tho heart that does not ache with it.
You can't eat. You can't sleep. You
can't read cr write or talk. It begins
with tho protoplasm of your soul and
reaches forward to the end of time and
aches every step of the way along. Yon
want to hide your face in a pillow away
from everybody and do nothing but
weep, but even that does not cure. It
seems to be too private to help materi?
ally. The only thing I can recommend
is tears, unrestrained weeping."
The Late Judge Nelson.
Speaking of the late Judge Nelson of
Worcester, .Mass., Senator Hoar said tho
other day: "He never let go a client's
caso in which he believed, and no one
was wise who went to sleep thinking
Judge Nelson was through with a caso
just because the preliminary points
were lost to him. Ho was a man of ab?
solute integrity, agreeable, fond of
friendship and of his friends, aud with
a vast knowledge of literature, science
and history lie had in his memory tho
best poetry in the language aud knew
the stars so that ho could on a moon?
light night point out and name the con?
stellations in tho skies. Ho had a rare
knowledge of the names and habits of
birds ami plants."

The Nobel Prize For Peace.
The report that tho Nobel prize of
?00,000 or thereabouts to the person" j
who has done most to promote peace is |
to be awarded this year to Vereschagin,
the painter, tends to make thoughtful1
persons wonder once more whether the
great Nobel prizes will ever do any par-'
ticular good. The basis of the award to
Vereschagin is that his pictures are
bloody aud unpleasant and put tho ob?
server out of conceit with battles. Ye
resehagin, when last heard from, was
sketching the turbulent scenes in the
Austrian parliament, with a view to
getting increased "ginger" into his
next war scenes. If his paintings are
really such promoters of peace, it would
pay the chamber of commerce of New
York to import, at its own cost,- a com?
plete set of them, to be presented to the
people of the United States and hung
as conspicuously as possible in the halls
of government at "Washington. That
might bo as effectual a safeguard for
