For It Is no light thing to choose
Christmas gifts Judiciously. The
whole secret of their ncceptnhlllty lies
In their appropriateness. Not only
must they bo appropriate to tho per
son from whom they come and to whom
tlicy go, hut to tho circumstances in
which tho latter Is placed. For an In
stance, there aro few housekeepers
who do not welcome an addition of
flno linen to their store. But If to a
housckeper who lives plainly In slm
plo surroundings one sends a superb
Inco-trlmmcd tea cloth or dollies that
throw all her other possessions Into
tho shade, there is an unsultablllty
about tho gift that robs It of much of
Its charm. Harper's Bazar.

ART AND SCIENCE IN TOYS
Playthings for the Kiddles Necessary
to the Proper Conduct of
WHILE the making of toys Is an
art that Is probably practically
as old as the world itself, it has been
only within recent years that science
has bothered Itself about them. Less
than half n century ago thoy were re
garded merely as playthings amus
ing diversions for children that were
by no means necessary to their well
being. Today, however, science insists
that there Is a well-defined philosophy
underlying tho use of toys; that they
are tho tools with which the little ones
ply their trade; the paraphernalln nec
essary to the proper conduct of their
society; that dolls, for example, are
rporc to them than the associates that
help to entertain them In that they
aid them In the attainment of their
mental growth ly stimulating the
natural emotions which must be ex
perienced In later life.
Whether this theory of the scientists
Is correct or not, the fact remains that
children have always had the play
things requisite for their Imltntlons of
tho domestic life nnd business affairs
of older people; that they have always
required their elders to provide them
with such Inventions, and Hint, when
they could not obtain these toys by
any other means they themselves have
sought and found objects that might
he made to suit their purposes. Even
the somnolent middle Ages did not put
an end to their pastimes. The toys In
which they found diversion may havu
been more simple, hut, as thoy met
the demands of nature, they played
their nllotted part In the scheme of
human development. Public Opinion.
