5 There ' are a number of ways in 1
which Christmas cheer may be given
without the expenditure of money. It
Is not by any means the cost of a gift
which makes It. acceptable, but rather
the spirit which enfolds it. I know a
mother who is housekeeper for her
three daughters and the gifts which
she is preparing for them seem to me
most practical and I am sure they will
be highly appreciated. "
She is doing for each the hundred
and one little odd pieces of sewing and
mending which are apt to be put off,
from time to time in a busy life.
Waists which needed a little refurbish
ing as - to collars . and girdles and so
were laid aside for leisure time, stocks
which had lost a fancy button or had
ripped here and there, . skirts which
needed rebuilding, -and in fact the
many little .touches which . mean
neatness, and which take time to ac
complish, she has been quietly at work
on for weeks. By Chri-mas she wil
have them all in order aifi it will real
ly mean that these articles Which have

rigidly Hooverlsed homes need not
have a sweeties Christmas. - The new
and delicious, conservation confection has
solved all problems. It Is made of nuts.
fruits and honey, and is the most tooth
some candy Imaginable.' Already Santa
Claua has filled hundreds of boxes, both
large and-small, with these goodies and
they , may be had at the Liberty Shop,
Portland hotel court on Sixth street.
There is also to be found at this new
and attractive little shop art objects
of . rare beauty and 'great? value, includ
ing marble busts, pictures, fancy lamps
and brlo-a-brac. and then there la a
splendid stock of toye, dolls and books
for old and young. Home-made dolls
are to be found In great number, -and
there are the most attractive little jars
of growing Christmas greens centered
with a tiny polnaetta, which will find
ready sale among Christmas shoppers.
On account of the great scarcity of
flowers and the great abundance and
beauty of the holly this year, holly
wreaths bid fair to take the place of
the usual box of flowers as a Christmas
greeting. The Choicest wreaths . made
from shining . tfrn ' holly - liberally
sprinkled with ecafret berries, are being
sold at the shop by the women of Reed
college, the funds to be used In the war

that new pair of pants for Peter. Of
course, Peter's mother had pinned her
new gray shawl- around little Peter
to make him look as nice as possible.
But you know that Peter's hind legs are
very long, anjd the wind was blowing
hard, and the pins kept coming un
fastened. - .... .
AnijKJlmmy Coon was kindness Itself
as they stopped very often, so that
Jimmy Coon could pin that gray shawl
tight around. Peter to take the place

Jimmy Coon was almost convulsed
with Inward laughter, but he was too
much of a gentleman to laugh and hurt
the feelings of his little chum, Peter
RabbiC Bo Jimmy Coon looked as
solemn, as if he was going- to a funeral.
But it was awful hard luck that they
met Teddy Possum and Sammy Musk-

clothing store. .
Little Peter saw those two rascals
coming ; and he hung his head in shame.
And he pulled one end of his mother's

Now Jimmy Coon was so mad that
he could bite off steel nails, if they
had been handy ; and Little Peter was
angry, too; but he was so ashamed
to be oalled a girt,- that he felt he
would like to sink through the big
earth, and come out on the other side.

The doctrine of "substitutes" being
promulgated by the food administration
might be of less Importance If tt were
the rule to find Intelligent cookery in
the United States. There would be
plenty of every food, both for ourselves
and our proteges-without wheatless and
meatless days. If those materials at
our disposal were temperately . utilised.
But; unfortunately, American cookery
is prodigal of fats and other valuable
foods ; . many tons of valuable foods
have been wasted as garbage hereto
fore. Immigrants from Europe are as
tounded at our high-handed waste of
foods. They have been used to making
the cooking of every meal a little piece
of strategy ; how to get the most energy
and food value out of materials at their
disposal. When they once land In
America we comment on their frugality
which usually is not an enduring fru
gality when they find their natural aver
sion to waste being critically observed.
For your guidance in cooking with
substitute fats the following list of 104
per cent fat foods may be useful:
Commercial shortening or cooking
fats, cottonseed oil. peanut oil, olive
oil, corn. oil. sesame oil.
It is especially Important that waste
be guarded against during the holidays.
Live well; you -can do finely at even
less outlay than In former years, despite
present prices. If you practice careful
buying and sensible cooking.
