These who have watched Mr. Doug las in his recent campaign say he is '1 rcat politician. A World reporter v.ho observed him at h!s headquarters last Wednesday was strut::; with ..ie easy way in which this plain man of business adapted himself to politics. Almcst every two minutes some of his workers, wearing the very evident stamp of the politician, came in to con gratulate him. Instantly the governor elect wr.j up to meet them with a hear ty handshake and "Why, h-e-l-l-o, Jim! Well, it was all right, wasn't it? You did line. You boys v.-ce great. I am awfully glad to see :Jo, you are to be congratulated- yourself." All day Wednesday the political workers filled his improvised campaign headquarters in the Old 3outh building on Washington street, and Mr. Doug las, who has devoted all his life to the shoe business, mingled with them witn his hearty laugh, and with as great freedom as though politics had been his calling all his life. Down in Brockton, nineteen miles from Boston, where the Dcuglas shoe factories are, Mr. Douglas is unques tionably the idol of the people. He has a great army of employes in his several factories there. He is known from one end of the state to the other as the ideal employer. What the people of the town like about him is that he is a plain, sincere, unostentatious man who goes about the street mingling with the people, without ever givin;; in his manner the slightest suggestion ol' the great, success he has won. ThS newsboys and bootblacks all know him. The conductors on the accommodation trains that run from Boslon to Brock ton all know him, and he always gives them a hearty handshake. All the cabmen and truck drivers are his per sonal friends, and though Brockton is a republican town far and away, ue carried is Tuesday by a good vote. There 'is no question that Mr. Doug las" election is the most remarkable thing that ever happened in Masst chusetts politics. Many explanations are offered for it. .Probably the most popular explanation is that the labor vote did it. Though this explanation covers a great part of the phenomenon it does not explain it all. Throughout the state the labor unions were pretty generally united in favor of Mr. Doug las., They liked him, and they did not like Governor Bates, whom they biamed for vetoing aq eight-hour taw and an overtime bill. IThe labor unions' tomany caaes qame out openly and in dorsed Mr. Douglasf The socialist vote , also went for him.J-Boston Correspon dence to New York World. THE CHRISTMAS TREE. Give the Little Folks a Merry Christmas Festival. If a trfie can be obtained from the woods for a' lUtle trouble, don't deny the children a Christmas tree. In many hemes it seems . that if each member has a gift at Christmas time, there really is not a cent to spare for tree decorations, and those sold ia the store are expensive. But as I looke 1 back on a treeless childhood I deter mined that our children should liavo a tree. Here are g ome things I learnel to make from five cents worth of tis sue paper. For several years they were the main dependence for the tree. Take a sheet of paper and cut pieces four inches wide and five inches long, fold directly through the middle the long way, pressing the crease hard. Now cut every one-fourth inch from the crease to within a half inch of the paper. Unfold and paste the ends- the narrowest side flat over one an other. At the top fasten baby ribbon or cord and you have a pretty little lantern. Umbrellas are made by tak ing a five-inch square of paper make a very tiny hole in the exact center, on which put Just a suspicion of mu cilage. Have ready for a handle u nine by one-half strip of heavy paper made exactly like a lamp lighter. Slip the tiny hole over the top of the han die and twist firmly. Twist the other end of handle over your finger to make a crook to hang to the tree by. By folding the paper over the handle in umbrella shape, and hanging up by handle ther are very like a partly open umbrella. For Taney baskets take a five-inch square and fold through the center from one corner to the other. Now fold Trom the corner to make a small triangle. Begining at top which will be the . center . of scuare cut toward the edge, turn and cut toward the edge in opposite direction, repeating until base of triangle is reached, making the cuts one-fourth inch apart. Un fold and lay flat on a table. Wet with a cloth. Take a pin and lift up care fully from the center. Hang tip to dry ant ou have a dainty little bas ket for the tree., But perhaps prettiest of all are the chains made from the tiny pieces of left-over paper; cut one-fourth inch wide and four or five inches long, ac cording to pieces left. Join the. ends of first piece, then slip another piece into it and loin Its ends, repeating until your chain is 'as long as you, want it. , I hope these thioss may be of use 'to som mother. Better try them of news paper before cutting the tisBuej pa per, if there is just a little money to, spend "or the tree I think candles an-1 holders give the most pleasure, and the holders may be used several seasons. A package of gold and silver tinsel thread costs but little and adds won derfully to the beauty of the plainest tree. If tissue paper can not be had. many pretty things can be made of bright colored lining cambric, which can be had for four or five cents a yard, or of the colored papers which come around rarcels from the stores. Selected. . MILLIONAIRE COMPETITION. What We May Look For If Things Keep Up. Andrew Carnegie has assured. Pitts burg people that if they are really de sirous of having a university which shall beat anything in the country he will help Imagination falters when it attempts to picture the struggle that' must fol low among the philanthropists wheuN such a pacemaker starts in the school making race. Fancy che scene at the Millionaires' Club five years from now when Mr. Carnegie will come swinging jauntily into the room with his golf clubs under his arm. "Well, John." he will say, "I have just added 200 acres to the Pittsburg campus and deposited $5,000,000 in sreei bonds as endowment to provide gymnasium facilities." : . ' Mr. Rockefeller will rub his hands in glee and say: "Too late, Andrew. Very good in its way, but antiquated. I have just bought "Lake Michigan for the Uni versity of Chicago, for its crews to practice on. All cut at Sault Ste Marie hereafter." Mr. Vanderbilt will look up from his paper and remark casually: "I might say that the family has just purchased all the land within two miles of the Yale campus, and will cover it with dormitories." . Mr.' Vanderbilt will say this very modestly, but with a gleam of triumph in his eye. But "Ah!" he will exclaim, as he returns to his paper. "Boy, bring my check-book! Gentlemen, Mrs. Stanford has just bought the Sierra Nevada mountains for the school of forestry of the Leland Stanford, Jr., University." i . The three rich men will pale at thls- anouncement. ''''& 'There's one thins left to do!" they will cry in chorus. "Raisff the pro fessors" salaries. We must stay at, the top." v . , . - .
