A variation of baked apples has the somewhat fanciful name of “apples on the half shell.” Slices of bread are cut into rounds (the cover of a half pound baking powder can makes a good size), buttered and put in a baking pan. Pare and core some large, good apples, cut them crosswise into Inch thick slices, put one on each slice of bread, dust with granulated sugar and put in a hot oven. Bake twenty minutes and serve with plain or whipped cream. NCB a clever Boston papa ceased to be­ lieve in Santa Claus, lie had bought a slate and pencil and figured it out that the sleigh which would contain the toys that • come to all the little boys and girls in the world would have to be as big as a house and that the span of reindeer that could pull it would be forty tons too heavy to drag it up the walls of the first house for the trip over the roof. Many other strange things did this wise man find out with the help of his slate and pen­ cil. and then he added them all up and found the sum total to be that Santa Claus is a myth. He joyfully told this to liis little son, who was an advanced student of an­ cient literature. To his great surprise, his little son seemed very glad, and when the amazed parent asked him wherefore he thus explained: “ My worthy father, because of cer­ tain ocular demonstration afforded by a surreptitious glance or two into our kitchen last Christmas eve I wad grav­ itating rapidly to the opinion that San­ ta Claus does not exist.

When I say that Hiawatha wrestled with the corn and threw him and buried him only to see him rise again, I but speak of the fa­ miliar industries of reaping and sowing and of the sprouting of the new plant in its time. “A myth is a folk tale describing well through personification the attri­ butes or offices of the abstract. Yes, papa, write that down. Let us now apply the definition to Santa Claus. “ Santa Claus’ office is to bring toys, sweetmeats or more useful gifts at Christmas. His attributes are gener­ osity, benevolence, care for dependents. That office is actually tilled; those at­ tributes display themselves. Therefore, according to myth law, Santa Claus really lives and acts his useful and pop­ ular part. “With a hint or two as to the man­ ner of doing it, I will now leave you to pursue the study further. You will find it fascinating. Observe that Santa Claus comes out of the frozen north. That is as if you would say that the impulse 0/ Christmas giving proceeds from the coldest heart at this season. Note that be drives reindeer, pleasing spectacle for the. mind's eye. It is as if you should say that he seeks to make his guise or his gifts unusual, for the better enjoyment thereof.

There are a great many peo­ ple who think it is as useless to hope tor health as to cry for the moon. They have tried many medicines and many doctors, but all in vain.

It increases the nutrition of the body, and so gives strength to throw off disease. It cleanses the blood from poisonous impurities and enriches it with the red corpuscles of health. It is not a stimulant, but a strength giving medi­ cine. It contains no alcohol, neither opium, cocaine, nor any other narcotic.

Dept [Copyright, 1901 , by Hamilton Musk.] There are two reasons for Christmas feasting aside from the instinct which tenches us that the joy of holiday making is Impossible or Incomplete without good eating and drinking. One is that Christmas is the survival oi one, or both, of two great pagan festi­ vals; the other, that the mind of man In all times and conditions expressed rejoicing by the laden board and the brimming bowl. Victory, good fortune, weddings, christenings, are celebrated today by dinners, as they have,been for thou­ sands of years, the practice undoubted­ ly coming down from that prehistoric time when the victory over the animal was the means of supplying the feast, We can find trace of it and its con­ comitant habit, glftmnklng, in the \ book of Esther, where Movdecai says to his people that on the anniversaries of the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies, and the month which was turned unto them from sor­ row to joy, and from mourning into a good day, they should make them days of feasting and of joy and of sending portions one to another and gifts tt the poor. And what greater cause for rejoicing and the usual expression thereof could exist for the early Christians than the fact of the birth of Christ ? It is true that there were differences of opinion in the early church as to the date, or even the season of the year, when that all important event occur­ red. Clemens Alcxandrimis tells us that It was kept by many Christians in April and by some in Egypt in the month Pachon, corresponding to out May, but long before the council ol Nice had fixed the day, separating it from the Epiphany, a curious circum­ stance had operated to fix forever the observance of it in the European mid­ winter. Observing the course of the seasons and their relation to the growing oi lessening length of the days, the Ary­ ans inhabiting Europe had come to learn that at the winter solstice the decline of nature wras over and that as the day lengthened she revived until a few weeks later she walked abroad glndsomely again In the green garb of spring. It was a fitting time for uni­ versal rejoicing. Nothing could be done afield. The bins ami butts were still well filled and the cattle fat. It was also a time to remember the good­ ness of the gods; to make sacrifice as well as to feast. Hence we find at the dawn of Chris­ tianity two great midwinter festivals among the two most powerful branches of the Aryans of that period — the Saturnalia among the Romans on the south and the Thor feast of the Scandi­ navians. It is a curious fact that they appear to be Identical as to time of observance. In Rome and wherever Rome had ruled long enough to have planted liei customs the Saturnalia was a season of sacrifice to Saturn of social equality and of riotous license. The slave in many households was permitted to be­ come master for the week of the feast­ ing, and his master executed the ridic­ ulous orders wiiich he gave. Buffoon­ ery In street processions and in tiic homes was one of the chief elements of the festivity. Orgies indescribable formed another. Present giving was universal. The sea kings called the season Jule (whence Yule), and they celebrated it in gorging and drinking, besides making sacrifice to Thor. Around a great blaz­ ing log, big enough to burn for the whole week of the gluttonous feast­ ing, they flung the half bare ox bones in rude jest and passed the wassail bowl. The primitive church found these pagan festivals institutions which it could not uproot, so it wisely adopted them, turning the sacrificial rites there­ of into worship for the born Christ, stripping the feasts of their grossest sensuality, but letting much of tlieh* joyousness remain. Besides the two great festivals men­ tioned, there was another observed at the same lime by a large family of the Europeans—the Gauls, Gaels or Celts— which was similarly adopted by the church as she spread her teaching among them, but this had a far less Influence than the other two upon the customs which have marked the cele­ bration of Christmas down to the pres­ ent time. The reason is that there was more of sacrificial rite and less of feasting in its celebration. From it, however, comes the kissing under the mistletoe, which with them was em­ blematic of the union of man and wo­ man and of the union of mankind with Baal. Fyom it also comes the Christ­ mas tree, dear to the little ones, a sur­ vival of the hanging of votive gifts on their sacred pines. But out of the other two* great pagan festivals arose the principal form that the feasting took. Eating and drink­ ing of the best, giving to the poor by right of their equality at that season, as well as the old mummery, practical­ ly abolished since Puritanism tried to suppress the festival utterly in 1047 , are easily and directly traceable to those pagan orgies. Of the pensioners now upon the rolls nine are revolutionary, and 1,528 repre­ sent the war of 1812. There Is no sur­ viving soldier of the Revolutionary War upon the pension list. Four are widows and five are daughters of soldiers who fought In the war for in­ dependence, and these marriages must have been contracted a good many years after the close of the revolution. Hiram Croak, of jAva, Oneida County, who is 101 years old, is the sole surviving pen­ sioned soldier of the War of 1812- The remaining 1,527 pensioners on account of that war arc widows, a decrease of 215 during the past year. On account of the Indian wars there are 4,565 pensioners paid; Mexican War, 15.577; Civil War, 970,352, and Spanish War, 5,604. One thousand and eighty-six survivors and 3,479 widows draw pensions on account of Indian wars, and 7,568 sur­ vivors and 8,109 widows on account of the war with Mexico. Of the Civil War pensioners, who form, of course, a great bulk of the list, 735,- 000 are survivors, while the remaining ♦ payments are made to widows and or­ phans. There arc about 965,000 surviv­ ing soldiers of the war between the States, so that some 200,000 either do not desire a pension or do not see their way clear to secure one.

VanDeventer against James Costello, whicn was tried at the equity term of Supreme Court in October. The action was brought to establish the plaintiff’s dower right in premises on Cornwall street, in Penn Yan, which were trans- ierred to Michael Hayes by Stephen W. VanDeventer and Albert K YauDeventer by deed bearing date January 1, 1897, lor a consideration ot $725. Tbe property was subsequently purvuased by defendant in this action. The case was somewhat complicated because anotner deed con­ veying the same property to Frank E. Prosper was executed by Stephen W. Van- Deveuter on June 21, 1897, It was rep­ resented to Mrs. VanDeventer at tnat time that only a portion ot the premises were to be conveyed to Prosser, and ac­ cordingly she signed a release ot her dow­ er right for the sum of fifty dollars. As a conclusion of law Justice Nash finds: 1 find that the plaintiff is entitled to dower right in the said real property des­ cribed in the complaint as having beeu conveyed by sam Stephen W. VanDevent­ er to said Hayes, and that judgment be rendered herein directing that a sum equal to one-third of the rental value of said property, to be ascertained by a ref­ erence, be paid to the plaintiff annually The largest line of ties that has ever been shown in Penn Yan is at Maxon’s Clothing Store.

The astonishing success and remarkable cures performed by Dr. Butterfield are due to the gift of clairvoy­ ance, to the long study of the constitu­ tion of man, and the curing of diseases from natural causes. Let those given up by others call for an examination. He cures the worst cases of scrofula, catarrh, piles, female weakness, asthma, diseases of the heart, lungs, and kidneys.

In spite o f the fact that the word dyspep­ sia means literally bad cook, it will not be lair lor many to lay the blame on the cook if they begin the Christmas Dinner with little appetite and end it with distress or nausea. It may not be lair lor any to do that—let us hope so for the sake of the cook ! The disease dyspepsia indicates a bad stomach, that is a weak stomach, rather than a bad cook, and for a weak stomach there is nothing else equal to Hood’s Sar­ saparilla.

Saved His Life. “ I wish to say that I feel I owe my life to Kodol Dyspepsia Cure,” writes II. C. Cbrestenson. of Bayfield, Minn. “ For three years I was troubled with dyspepsia so that I could hold nothing on my stom­ ach. Many times I would be unable to re­ tain a morsel of food. Finally I was con­ fined to my bed. Doctors said I could not live. I read one o f your advertisements on Kodol Dyspepsia Cure and thought it fit my case and commenced its use.

Eggs in Winter • A gentleman writes to the Albany Journal telling its farmer readers that they can have eggs all winter by feeding hens as follows: “ Take a pound of powdered red album­ en ard mix it with one pound of black or red pepper, ground fine. Then every morning mix some ground feed, half wheat bran and half cornmeal; to each quart of this mixed feed add two tea- spoonsful o f the mixed pepper and al­ bumen, then add enough hot water to dampen the feed, not to make it sticky. Give a quart of this hot feed to each twelve hens every morning, and a quart of whole grain, wheat or corn, or both mixed, for each twelve fowls every morn­ ing, and in two weeks your hens will begin to lay, and lay all winter If you feed them this feed.” The writer adds that his father, brothers and neighbors have tried the feed for several winters with most gratifying suc­ cess. The pepper costs thirty cents a pound, red albumen sixty cents, and a pound of each wi 1 feed fifty hens for over a month, and give the owner ico dozen eggs he would uot otherwise have got.

A poor complexion is usually the result of a torpid liver or irregular action o f the bowels. Unless nature's refuse is carried off it will surely cause impure blood. Pim­ ples, boils, and other eruptions follow. This is nature's method of throwing off the poisons which the bowels failed to remove. DeWitt’s Little Early Risers are world famous for remedying this condition. They stimulate the liver and promote regu­ lar and healthy action of the bowels, but never cause er pine, cramps, or distress. Safe pills. T. F. Wheeler.
