A MESSAGE FROM SANTA CLAUS. He Sends an Illustrated Apology to All Disappointed Children. Hello! Hello! This is the North Pole and I am Mr. Claus—Santa Claus, you know. Have I got the United States? 1 have? Well, that's what 1 want, for 1 wish to tell the children all about something. What’s that? 1 can not hear you. Please do not yell so in the ’phone. There, that’s better. What I wish to tell the children is that I am very, very sorry they did not find in their stockings all the presents they asked me for before Christmas. I remem bered every one of them and had them all down in my books. Have you got all that? All right. I made the most careful preparations so that not a sin ■ gle child should be disappointed. 1 had 20,000,000 of little birds distrib uted through every town to report to me what presents the children were wishing for, and my books up here at the pole were kept by 10,000 of the best polar bear bookkeepers in the arctic regions. But you know accidents will happen even in the very best regulated Santa Claus family. I came zipping down from the pole in my sledge drawn by 50 reindeer, and was making very good time—about 20 miles a minute—when the forty-seventh reindeer cast a shoe, and I had to drop down into the Maine woods to have the shoe put on again. I left my reindeer tied to a big tree and was walking through the forest tor a blacksmith when something dreadful happened. It would take too long to tell you about it, .and as my artist friend, Frank Ver Beck, has made a picture showing just what happened, 1 ! send it to you by telephone. Just take a good long look at the picture and then you will understand why that horn, and that drum, and that sled, and those mittens, and that candy, and all the other presents you wished for were not in your stockings Christ ianas morning. Goodby! Ting-ling-ling! i Earle H. Eaton. A Simple Trick. Cut out a narrow strip of pasteboard and join the ends together to form a hoop. On the inner side of the hoop fasten a small weight, such as a metal button or a bit of sealing wax. Con struct an inclined plane by placing a | flat ruler on a table, with one end rest ! ing on a slight elevation, such as a pile of books. Place the hoop on the incline in such a position that the weight may be slightly in front of the highest point of the hoop, in the direction of the top of the incline. On releasing the hoop it will be found to at once roll up the incline, in seem ing defiance of the law of gravity. It will increase the mystery if instead of a hoop a round pasteboard box is used, having a similar weight on the inside. —Once a Week. Tadpoles, Toads and Frogs. When frogs and toads are verj’ young, they are called tadpoles. They first ap pear to be nothing but head and tail; then, in a few days, four legs appear, and then the tail disappears and the little creature becomes a perfect frog. In the tadpole state they live under wa ter, but when they become frogs they can only stay under the water a short time. The Little Peer of Ireland. The late Duke of Leinser, who died of typhoid fever on Dec. 1, at Carton, near Maynooth, is succeeded by his eld est son, Maurice, marquis of Kildare, who was born on March 1, 1887. There are three other children—a daughter and two sons. The new dnke succeeds to the position of premier duke, mar quis and earl in the peerage of Ire land. For the beuefit of our little read ers we present herewith a full length picture of the young peer. Fifteen! Dolly’s lovely hair Floats toward her feet, Dolly's girlish skirt Shows her ankles neat: She will always taste Sorrow in her cnp. Till her skirt is down And her hair is npl Dolly waits and waits. With impatient pain. Till she sees herself Glorying in a train: Till the happy hour Fills with joy her cup. When her skirt is down And her hair Is up! —New York Tribuna COLORADO’S WOMAN VOTERS. How Their Franchise Came About and How They Will He Likely to t:so It. Stump speakers can now say “Fellow citizens” in Colorado instead of "La dies and gentlemen,” for, asaColorado woman writes to the Chicago Tribune: “We women of Colorado have equal suffrage, or equal suffrage lias us. I haven’t quite figured out which. The women who came out of the dust and smoke of battle with the light of vic tory on their faces say we have suffrage —and they ought to know, for they studied it all up beforehand and knew what it meant—and talk about prima ries and polls with an easy familiarity that is awe inspiring. But as for the rest of us—well, we have lots to learn. Of course we expected to get the right to vote, but we find that carries a great many other rights that we thought the men would he good enough to at tend to just as we wanted them to with out leaving us any bother. “It’s all the other way. First of all, in the cities we have to register under the Australian ballot Jaw, get under a measuring machine, have the color of our eyes determined and our weight noted, and otherwise contribute to the answering of 20 odd questions, among which is the plump, point blank conun drum, 'How old are yon?’ Distinguish ing physical characteristics also go down in the book. One woman naively told the clerk she was a twin and has not recovered her good temper yet. I don’t know what awful result will fol low if a couple of thousand women are challenged a week or so before election by the political machines. “The next thing is that if women do not take an interest in conventions and primaries and all that, you know, they will find their choice restricted to two or three men with whose selection they had nothing to do, and that does not seein right. We must join in the push, my husband says, while he chuckles away. Unless some of the dear sisters are belied, just the same, the men will find out a thing or two. The very day after election, when it was certain we had won, the discovery was made that the wives of several politicians, one of them actually under an assumed name, were members of the suffrage as sociation and had begun to swing it for their parties and incidentally, no doubt, their husbands. Several offers of clerk ships under the new county officers were made, but to the honor of the women who did the campaign work not an offer was accepted, and the attempt at influencing was exposed at the next meeting. The association adopted a de cisive 1:0 political plank and took meas ures for the blackballing of political women. We’re traveling on a high plane, I tell you. I don't know how it will work at the primaries, but it’s lofty. Right after election the newspapers took a wicked delight in pointing out that since we had become voting citi zens we were amenable to all the duties of citizens and voters and would have to do jury duty and militia duty and 1 don’t know how many other kinds of duty. Then arose Attorney General Engley—a very Solomon—and dug into his books and found that, while the state constitution made no distinction of sex, various laws regarding jurors and the militia contain the word male, which lets us out of the work and leaves us all the fun. Anyway, I’m sure we’ll get along very nicely, even at the prima ries, though I’m certain the men won’t think conventions are conventions at all if they can’t smoke and fight and raise Old Ned. They have always had a good deal more row in Denver at the convention than on election day, and a squad of deputy sheriffs usually sit on the bench of the elect. "How did we carry the election? Well, 1 am blessed if I know that either—whether we carried it at all or not. I’m honestly inclined to believe that the men gave us suffrage because they thought there was no good argu ment against it and that we ought to have it. The men of this part of the world are big, broad minded fellows, and hold, too, much of that old time western chivalry which made the lone woman the safest of all the creatures in a rough frontier town—the spirit which to this day makes the toughest old miner ready to fight at a moment’s no tice for a woman in distress. The great bulk of the vote against suffrage was cast by men who were not opposed to having women vote, but who do not feel that women should mingle in poli tics as politics has been. We say, and it is on our knowledge of the man that we base our saying, that politics in Colo rado will hereafter be other than it has been, and we will be safe in politics as it will be. No Colorado assemblage will tolerate ruffians who will insult women directly or indirectly. You will find the future showing that 1 know whereof 1 speak. The suffrage machinery during the campaign was not very powerful, and if the agitation really accomplished anything the val uable engine of its work was the press. There was only one newspaper man in the state who openly opposed suffrage, j Some were a little lukewarm and many said nothing, but the large dailies, without exception, favored suffrage ed itorially.” A Dainty Room. Dainty bedroom papers are much in demand, and wonderfully beautiful some of them are. The one fault in rooms of any size is lack of character and a eoni< what faded ensemble, but even that has been obviated by a clever device. In the home of a recent bride of artistic tastes the walls of the guest room are papered with a design of pale pink upon creamy white ground, and the defect of too pale tints is entirely overcome by a bordering of olive car tridge paper. Each of the four wails b is become a panel, and the plain tint r .ns around all sides, so that the sweet, tender pinks are inclosed in a frame an l the room as a whole gains the dig nity that it desires.—American Uphol stery Trade. Wii'.dul ut.tl Table DreMera. English wov/,en are gradually nlisorb ing the entire trade of shop window dressing, an occupation still in the hands of men here, as is the business of table decoration, which in London is usually ibowork of a woman in the employ of the florist who provides the greens and blossoms necessary. The London decorator finds her efforts very much assisted by the electric light, which is now used instead of gas in nearly all the better dwelling houses in the English capital. A very much ad mired decoration for a ducal dinner party lately was made with a long, low, gilded basket heaped with maiden hair ferns and lilac eatfelayas; a great lilac Basil was tied around the basket, the ends straying far down the long table, and the purple orchids overflowed the basket and trailed among the rib bons. The table, of beautiful old oak. very black and polished, had no tablecloth, as is the fancy now, being veiled only with two long strips of old lace. But the unique feature of the decoration was made possible by the electric chan delier over the table. This had been tapped by six electric wires, which were wound with lilac silk floss, and they furnished the illumination to six little globes of delicate frosted lilac glass that reared their heads among the orchids and gave them the most beauti ful unearthly sort of transparent bril liancy.—American Woman’s World. Helps In Fancy Work. For some time past manufacturers have made it their constant endeavor to reduce the difficulties of fancy work, especially those soils requiring the threads and stitches to he counted. Thanks to modern inventions, the work er has scarcely to try her eyes and need only follow tho course of a ready marked pattern. Wo have wool work with colored threads over the canvas, indicative of every shade and figure and small stencils for cross stitch work. But a still greater novelty eclipses all these workers’ aids, and further facilitates both cross and other fancy stitches. We refer to fully print ed geometrical patterns, alike applica ble to various styles of work, and as such certain to find many friends. For cross stitch we have not only lines, hut regularly drawn stitches, clearly show ing outlines, filling and ground, and de spite all the saving of time and trouble in counting, etc., these printed covers cost very little more than plain mate rial. Although fine enough to be fully covered by the thread, the printed blue marks do not rub off while working, and every trace disappears after the first washing or cleaning.—Season. Kins’* Daughters <»!' Damascus. Straying through the Turkish bazaar ono afternoon last sunnm r was a sweet faced woman wearing upon !: r breast a silver cross tied with a bit of purple ribbon. Suddenly one of the Turkish girls at a booth leaned forward and touched the silver cross and said "Hul loa, sister,” in quaint adaptation of the American greeting, and then in sweet and broken English she added, “I’m the King’s Daughter, too, but I only wear the cross on Sundays for fear I should lose it.” And “Where are you from?” eagerly questioned the woman with the silver cross. “From Damas cus, the oldest city in the world,” an swered the Turkish girl. And ‘' How long have you been here?” still questioned the lady. "Four months.” ”Are you homesick?” said the lady softly. And the girl answered, “lam very tired.” Further inquiry developed the fact that there were among the people in the Damascus village several members of the order of King’s Daughters from Dr. Jessup’s school in the far orient.— Chicago Correspondent. Brazil Known Her Worth, Mies Marcia P. Brown, formerly principal of tlie Maplewood school, in Malden, Mass., came heme last Sep tember, from a live years’ absence in Brazil. She was appointed by the Bra zilian government to examine the school exhibition at the World’s fair and to inquire thoroughly iuto the workings of the school systems in the United States, Germany, France and Portugal. The purpose of the Brazilian government is to institute a model system of schools in Rio Sao Paulo. Miss Brown is a member of the state board of education of Sao Paulo, the only lady that lias ever served on the committee. She is the principal of the teachers in the training school at Sao Paulo, appoint ed by the government when Brazil be came a republic in 1889, and while she was interested in missionary work. After two years she gave the missionary work up and accepted the position at the training schools, which she still fills.—Boston Woman’s Journal. Belle Boyd. Belle Boyd, the rebel spy, famous during the war, has gone on the lecture platform. She is now past :"0, and her reddish blond hair has become almost white. She has three children and is divorced from her third husband. She is chiefly remembered from her scheme by which she caused Lieutenant Hard ing of the Federal army to permit a Confederate officer to escape, after which Harding deserted the Union aimy and fled to England, where he married Miss Boyd. Afterward both returned and became spies in the Con federate service.—Exchange. Mrs. Livermore’s Disappointment.

The following graphic statement will be r. . ici with intense interest: “I can not describe the numb, creepy sensation that existed in my ; r.. hands ana legs. I had to rub and beat ikin' parts until they were sore, to overcome in a measure the dead feeling that had taken po^xCNsion of them. In addition, 1 had a ' * range weakness in my back and around my wai-i, together with an Indescribable ‘gone' feeling in my stomach. Physicians said il was creeping paraiv^is, from which, accord ing io their universal conclusion, there is no relief. Once it fastens upon a person, they ‘•av.it continues its insidious progress until it reaches a vital point and the sufferer dies. Such was my prospect. I had been doctoring a year and a half steadily, hut with no par ticular tienefit, when I saw an advertisement of I>r Miles’ Restorative Nervine, procured a bottle arid began using it. Marvelous as it may seem, but a few days had passed before every bit of that creepy feeling had left me, and there has not been even the slightest indication of its return. I now feel as well as I ever did, and have gained ten pounds in weight, though I had run down from 170 to 137. Four others have used Dr. Miles'Restorative Nervine on my recomen dation. and it has been as satisfactory in their case-as in mine.”—James Kane, La line, O.
