It is evident that this year as usual the spirit of phil
antrophy will find large expression in the giving of
Next to the gifts that brighten the homes of our
friends those given to charity are important to consider
Too many people give indiscriminately, without the
thought that makes a gift appropriate or a charity help
ful. In careless giving people mean well enough, but so
did the committee which sent .$20,000 worth of fireworks
to the Irish famine sufferers.
' Still others give things of no value or meaning what
ever. An instance of this was furnished by a public
gathering in New York, where one of the speakers called
attention to the sufferers from a prolonged strike and
suggested the advisability of giving them something.
One of the sympathetic audience moved that "we give
them three cheers."
By all means Christmas gifts for friends should be
selected with reference to their appropriateness and
utility. They should be fitting above all else.
You have no money for charity giving?
Then pass on the things you have the books you have
read, the unhung picture, the duplicate present, the scarf
or gloves you do not need, the musical instrument you
.have stored away anything by which you may enrich or
comfort or please others without impoverishing yourself.
These things have yielded you their best flavor; let
them carry to others human love's rich aroma.
INDIA THE TREASURE HOUSE
The rainfall is now considerably above normal, far
enough ahead that most of us would be willing to let it
have a few days rest until "the normal" caught up with
it again. More than an inch fell in the past twenty-four
hours, and if you do not think that is some rain take a
look at a few brief figures. An inch rainfall means that
on every foot square of the country five pounds of water
fell. If your residence lot is 100 by 150 feet, thirty seven
and a half tons' of water fell on it in that inch of rain. As
the rainfall for the year is about 40 inches you can brigh
ten up on your arithmetic by figuring up how much falls
on an acre during the year, arid then carry the estimates
to such lengths as you please.

Teddy the choice of the sons of toil at the coming election,
at which by the way, Mr. McHarg, treasurer of the Bull
Moose party at the last presidential election, says Teddy
will in March break into the ring and try to stampede the

A dispatch from China to Chinese in San Francisco
Tuesday, stated the revolution against Yuan Shi Kai had
commenced and several provinces were in open revolt. It
is quite probable this will cause Japan to get busy and be
fore the trouble is settled to grab more of the territory
of her adipose and moribund neighbor. It would be like
taking candy from a kid.
The only difference between a day of fasting and a day
of feasting is the letter "E". Still the difference is just
as marked as the way the kiddies feel about the two ends
of a holiday season. There is a vast difference between
the last day of vacation and the first day of school and the
last day of school and the first of the holidays,

Henry Ford is reported sick in bed and really in a ser
ious condition. This is the result of worry over the bad
conduct of' the individuals composing his peace delega
tion. He probably realizes now just how David felt when
he had assembled his followers at the cave ,df Adullam.
A story in today's paper dealing with the great ac
cumulation of gold' now in this country gives the United
States credit with having in her vaults one-fourth of the
entire quantity of gold in the world. The dispatch says
this amount is about $2,200,000,000, which would make
the total amount of gold in evidence about .$9,000,000,000.
This total is probably too low as the generally accepted
amount of gold in existence is $1:1,000,000,000. A state
ment made by one who had spent some years in looking
into the subject places the total amount of gold taken
from the earth by man at above $20,000,000,000.
The same authority estimates that fully one-third of
this is in hiding or lost. His estimates also dVedits India
with having more gold than any other country, owing to
the fact that it is literally the grave yard of that metal,
the Hindu being a miser so far as the yellow metal is
concerned, and hoarding all of it he gets possession of.
This is due to several causes that need not be gone in
to now, but the fact remains that both gold and precious
stones once reaching India, stay there. The most price
less collections of diamonds and rubies belong to the
Maharnjahs, Ahkoonds, Ghekwars or whatever titles they
inay sport, and vast hoards of gold are also in the treas
uries of these same rulers.
Either gold or jewels entering India pass through
gates over which as over that mentioned by Dante, that
gave admission to the Infernal regions, and which bore
the legend: "Who enters here leaves hope behind."
The supreme court has decided that a woman can be
married and yet be capable of teaching school. Without!
passing on the question of it being good law it can easily j
be pronounced good sense, and the decision of the court!
will meet with the approval of all except perhaps a fowl
extreme faddists, such as sometimes get in charge of j
educational affairs. Anyone will admit that 7 married l

ones, and if they can take care of half a dozen or more of;

affairs of the teachers in any way.
General Villa's troops are reported as being drunk

never been forced to live in Jaurez will probably criticise
A man can manufacture pills of plaster Paris, bran
and flour, and swear they'll cure all human ills and
folks will praise them every hour. And every mail that
comes to town will bring warm letters from
the guys who tell how they were stricken
down with influenza in the eyes. "We tried
all medicines and drugs that kindly folks
could recommend, we bought such things
in kegs and jugs, and porous plasters with
ont end. In vain it didn't hit the spot; we
weaker grew from day to day; in spite of
all that costly rot, it seemed that we must
pass away. We called a learned physician
in, and at our tongue and pulse he looked,
and said, with melancholy grin, 'It is no use
your goose is cooked !' Then Gvandpa said, 'For mortal
ills there is one cure that's simply great; O try the Plas
ter Paris Pills!' And so we sent and bought a crate. We
took ten pills six times an hour, at night we took a dozen
more; and to our weakened limbs the power came rushing
like a tidal bore." Thus people, over all the earth, are
boosting fakes, and mean ho harm; oh, what is testimony
worth? Is evidence a false alarm?

MRS. MARTER'S COMPLEXION.
Mr. Martor hastily dropped bia
morning paper and arose as his wif
entered the breakfast room. Mrs,
Marter's brows held that elevation
and her lips that depression which
forecasted an approaching storm, and
her husbnnd'KfKpirlts sank according
ly. "Good morning, my dear," said lie,
trying to look happy, and proceeding'
to overdo It, "You look as thouch
you'd had a good night's rest. Let mo
null out your chair. How bccomlnii
that wrapper dress I mean gown--U
You always did look well in blue."
"It matters little," said Mrs. Mar
ter, In an all ls now-over voice, "but I
was led to believe It .green."
"Of course, my dear, green. I meaut
iri cen. And such a pretty shade."
"Green and yellow do not ordinari
ly blend," observed the lady, sipping
her coffe as though It probably con
tained some deadly poison, but life
was too dismal a thing for It to mat
ter. "Very true," assented Mr. Morter,
In his sprlghtllcst manner. "It takes
yoti to pick out colors."
At this Innocent compliment Mrs.
.Martor buried her face in her hand
kerchief and began to sob.
Mr. Mailer, never prepared for
these outbursts, after ten years of
trying to ward them off, drorped his
fork and Jaw at the same time, and
