Y., every Thursday. Don’t Be Old Scrooge Ther is no better time than right now to read* the Christmas Carol. It is a Christmas story that will in- in popularity and make the cr name of Dickens respected by young and old so long as Christmas con­ tinues one of the big days of the year. It is a story which every­ body should read at least two or three weeks before Christmas. Those who haveread it can well afford to do so again, and they usually do, and those who have not read it have a pleasure ahead . The story of “Old Scrooge,” “Tiny Tim” and the others is not to be for­ gotten. Reading it puts one in a bet- » ter frame of mind and makes Christ­ mas mean more to those who can not fail to remember the fine work Marley's ghost performed in making “Old Scrooge” see the only real plea­ sure there is on earth is providing plaesure for somebody else. In this respect no ghost ever did such a good job as that of Mr. Harley. It reai- raneed a whole Christmas and in- i stead of permitting “Old Scrooge to go thruogh the holidays without having a heap of fun it did just the reverse, making the greatest hap­ piness for him and everybody else. The Christmas Carol is short and canbe read in a jiffy. But it will not be forgotten in - a jiffy. It is loaded with the Christmas spirit and .one cannot go through the pages without feeling a bit more charitable toward the world and the people in the world. It does more to spread Christmas cheer than any other book that could be mentioned, and had Dickens never written anything else he would be entitled to a place in the literary history for this one conti i- hution. Whereever there is a book store a copy of the Christmas Carol can be purchased for a very small sum. It can be bought for ten cents and some copies have sold for ten dollars, but the Carol is no different in either volume. So, just a suggestion that will add to the pleasure of Yuletide is this: If you haven’t read it, get a copy of the famous story and get more out of this Christmas than youever got out of any Christmas before and you won’t be an “Old Scrooge.” U Buy Christmas Seals” Another Christmas season is at xhand and with it has come the six­ teenth annual sale of the Christmas Seals -— the nation-wide custom through which the people of the United States contribute moral and financial support to the national, state and local societies that are en­ gaged in the movement for the pre­ vention, cure and control of tuber­ culosis. The work of these societies is of great value to the public health au­ thorities of our state and its local units — the counties, cities, towns and villages. They express the consen­ sus of opinion of those interested in public health, and help to develop a wider public concern for health con­ servation. They carry on the newer activities in tuberculosis work until the practicability of such measures is Personal Adornment. With regard to the adornment oi' one’s person, each costume should be taken into consideration. With the Tshort sleeve, bracelets have become popular. Today, arms that are fash­ ionable are agleam with them, and they are a gayly colorful note. Bracelets _ A bright bracelet placed snugl> well above the wrist of a slim arm, seems -to make it rounded and more shapely; the plump arm with a flex­ ible circlet dangling loosely at the wrist, seems to take on the air of slenderness. Oriental effects in jade, amber or jet are cunningly designed in serpent patterns and these aie worn high on the arm. Rhinestone bracelets being brilliant affairs, are mostly becoming to the plump arm. Earrings Nowadays, the bracelet is matched with the neck chain and earrings of fine cut stones and these can be had in color combinations of red and white, blue and yellow, and green and amethyst. Earrings extremely long and verging or, the ecccnl ■ c are being worn. Shower earrings and pendants of coral are very smart. Necklaces Pearl necklaces are always in good taste and just now as many as • six strands are correct for a neck chain. Cream and cream pink, from 15 to 3C inches long are favored. A very smart necklace seen was a cluster of colored grapes on a silk cord. Rings An ultra smart manner in which to wear one’s largest and favorite ring is on the forefinger of the left hand. It must be very large and striking looking, otherwise it will merely looic out of place, and of course no other ring must be worn at the same time. Now is indeed the time to open the family jewel vaults and bring ou, your garnet treasures. Garnet jewel­ ry is very scarce and is now very smart. In the year 1820 garnets reigned supreme, and their vogue is again revived, and those that h;ve these jewels are covering their hands, arms and throats with them. “ Gran- ate” garnet jewelry is so named be­ cause it duplicates in glittering stone the blood-drenched red of the pome­ granate. Bandeaus Gleaming headbands and head crowns for the dance are displayed in an endless variety. For Madame, who coifs her hair with Madonnalike simplicity, or for the maiden who tosses modishly shingled locks, there will be found the very thing she will think becoming as well as fascinat­ ing. A new and flattering note struck this winter is a turban of lustrous silver cloth with a unique insert of rhinestones. A delicate leaf pattern, which allows the hair to show through a fine network of rhine­ stones, is very new. Coronets of pearls, or pearls, in oriental effects, are seen everywhere one goes. Combs An old time fashion that has re­ gained popularity is the wearing of combs. The comb lends a foreign touch to woman’s dress, and many heads are a’glitter with them. There are combs to suit all coiffures, for the knot of hair at the nape of the neck, the comb that towers above one’s head and the circular comb for the bobbed hair, which is almost a bandeau around the back of the head. There is a big collection from which to choose; tortoise shell, sil­ ver and gold, coral, carved ivory, others in colors of jade, amber and red, black or white; all sizes, all shapes, some set with gay stones o 1 jewels and all glistening. Perfume The use of. perfume has become popular. With the foreign influence in clothes comes the perfume sug­ gesting the Orient; flowers from China, Japan, Persia; the blend of sandalwood, suggesting Egypt, and a new perfume that is all the rage. “Mahrajah.” nated for Improvement N The supervisors meet on Decembei 12 and apportioned taxes to be raised in the towns as follows: < Barrington Town an<l County ................... $16.18 Highway ................... .................... 7.81 Benton Town and County ................... $19.58 Highway ........................................ 3.19 Italy Town and County ................... $16.70 Highway ........................................ 9.81 * Jerusalem Town and C o u n ty .......................... $16.57 Highway ........................................ b.32 Middlesex Town and County ................... $18.82 Highway ........................................ 6.34 Milo Town and C o u n ty .......................... $19.61 Highway ........................................ 3.59 Potter Starkey Town and County ................... $15.70 Highway ........................................ 4.37 Barrington .......................... $17,740.39 Town and C o u n ty .......................... $22.94 Highway ........................................ 4.14 Torrey Town and County ......................$22.69 Highway ........................\ .............. 4.42 The amount of taxes to be raised in each town will be as follows: Barrington ........................ $17,740.39 Benton ............................... 40,556.28 Italy ............... - ............... 13,507.16 Jerusalem ......................... 40,097.09 M iddlesex ...................... 21,649.91 Milo .................................. 89,088.53 Potter .............................. 26,281.20 Starkey ............................ 39,270.08 Torrey .............................. 24,153.95 Roads to Be Built The designated roads to be improv­ ed in the county the coming year are as follows: County will raise ................ $23,070 State will appropriate .. 23,070 to be used in what is known as 320A and B.

The proper time is quite as essential as the proper place in successful gift choosing. Even the most enthusiastic bargain hunter prefers less crowding and more leisure when choosing gifts. This store for Men's Gifts will do all possible to give careful service even at the last minute — but still there will be the crowds, no matter what we do.

McELLIGOTT WHITTIER’S TRIBUTE TO THE COUNTRY NEWSPAPERS The country weekly has long been a favored theme of American poets. Some of the verse written has been good, some has been bad and some has been mediocre. Yet most of it has breathed the homely, intimate spirit of the little papers which still constitute the chief reading of the great bulk of the American people. One of the earliest of poets to sing the praises of the home paper was John G. Whittier. His lines are found in his longer poem, “Snowbound”. demonstrated, public interest in them f°H °w- aroused, and the desire by the people At last the floundering carrier bore to provide for their maintenance by The village paper to our door 4 a .. a 4.'/ w . _ __ 3 mi ___ ___ • — T a ! brAorijanlnrr Anfurorri a c xirc taxation is developed.
