The Community Supper
Really Like Chrittmas
inPHBSB community suppers
1 are always stupid 1" declared
a pretty girl to a small group
around her. "I wish we could put
some pep and fun Into this one and
give the people a good time. Some
tiling really like Christmas and not
so dull." .
The others looked dubious and
scratched their heads. "What'U we
dot" they asked.
"I know," declared the pretty
girt. "Just got the Idea. Now
listen everyone: Why not Imitate
the way they used to do In oldeo
times t A minstrel In the gallery,
lota of minstrels I Singing and
playing on horns and things ! Hide
them by screens covered with
greens. Let the people get seated
at the tables, then pipe up with old
songs every one knows. Dress the
minstrels In gay colors. Then have
them come down the stairs sing
ing and playing. Let them wine
among the table. Have jestet
in front joking and making fun. A
real old English cuntom. It wffl
help a lot and give the diners a
good time. ,
"And," added another, fired with
enthusiasm, "red candles on the
tables, wreaths at all the windows,
waitresses with red ribbons about
their heads and a sprig of holly
tucked over one ear."
"Not to mention," laughed
third, "a dinner of roast turkey,
cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes,
rolls, coffee and mince pie!"
"Kliht-o!" said the rest.
And so It was done. The very
merriest community supper that
was ever given In that town. Pa

Sing Heigh-Hol Unto
the Chriitmas Holly
NOTHING quite so typifies the
spirit of Christmas as a bough
of beautiful, glistening follaged and
scarlet-berried holly. Holly seems
the quintessence of Yule and
should, and generally does, oceuigr
the place of honor In Christmas
There are states where the holly
Isn't to be found In great abun
dance. In some sections of the
South a limited supply must be
made to serve the purpose. For
profuse decorations other greens
fashioned from sprays of Irish yew
whose fan-like and lacy foliage Is
ideal for "this use; and, to There ;
are the beautiful, waxy leaves :
from the magnolia as well ss cedar.
But the holly bough, of course, :
of all Christmas green Is the love-
llest and most popular, not only !
here but In other lands, snd In !
Frame, In particular, as Brittany
grows it In quantities. The holly
is of slow growth and propagated
by seed which do not germinate un
til the second year. We think of
holly berries always as being red,
but some kinds bear yellow fruit,
some white, and some others
The holly has a commercial
value that Isn't generally known.

Ivory white sk.1 Is used for Inlay

teapot handles and other articles,
when stained. The leaves are used
