FOR THE GIRL OF TWELVE
Some Holiday Presents That Will Be
Most Pleasing and Appro
Perhaps there is no more difficult
person in the household for whom to
select a gift than the girl of about
1 - years old. Site lias outgrown dolls
and such childish delights; site cares
nothing for the dainties that would
please iter older sister, yet something
must be found for her In olden days
sashes made excellent gifts, but now
they art' not quite , <> useful Why
not replace ilietn by a ribbon for the
hair, with embroidered ends? The
cost would be comparatively little and
the work would be almost nothing
It would take a piece of ribbon about
a yard long and about five inches
wide. Cut the ends across and em
broider, in the self color, a scallop
and, perhaps, a small design on the
order of the Dresden work.
This would be a nice gift ami
would delight the heart of the little
girl at that period of life between
little girl and young womanhood.

tlannel with pinked edges are sewn
in at the top to hold the safety pins. ,
Fins of different sizes may be put into

will be found useful.

HOW TO TRIM IT MOST EFFEC
TIVELY AND EASILY.
It Is Usually the Last, But by No
Means the Least Important of
the Holiday Preparations.
When all the other Christmas work
is done, there remains the important
task of trimming the Christmas tree.
Color and effect are the most impor
tant requirements, the materials em
| ployed being secondary. The souvenirs
or gifts form part of the decoration of
the tree. These may he wrapped in
tissue paper of bright hues, and tied
with narrow ribbons. If the gilts are
small, a pretty idea is to imbed them
in artificial oranges. Make these of
orange yellow crepe paper, wrapping
Hu' gilt in soft paper, and till the
orange out with tissue paper. Hang
by two-inch lengths of ribbon or strips
of braided crepe paper. These look
very pretty among the dark green

zling, holly berries, threaded to eacli
link, make them more effective.
Plenty of red and green apples—
small ones, of course—help the dec
orative scheme; and tiny potatoes,
stuck full of wee flags, look well. Make
the banners of various colors, using
crepe paper with long sticks.
String all the fallen holly berries,
and garland the boughs with these, or
spear each berry with a pin and stick
tlie pins into corks or pieces of potato.
The best method of gilding the nuts
is to buy the loose smalts from some
dealer in paints and oil (house paints).
One can obtain tlie smalts In gold,
silver and brilliant metallic colors.
Obtain also one-eighth of a pound of
glue. Place it in a bowl, add a pint
of water, and set the bowl in another
vessel of hot water. Let boil until the
glue is thoroughly dissolved. Before
gilding the nuts, hammer a tack into
the end to suspend by. Take hold of
the tack, dip tlie nut in the glue, then
roll in the Hock and lay aside to dry.
