Christmas is not the time for making
expensive presents. Leave those for
weddings and bjrthdays. The simpler
the gift, the more suitable, the more
Christmassy, will it be. We all remem
ber the Eastern tale where the wreath
of dowers culled at even shone, by some
occult magic, the next morning in all
the resplendent hues of precious stones
and ablaze with diamonds. Even so
your little sprizs of holly, your wreaths
of evergreen, that look perhaps homely
and commonplace the day before, can
be converted by the weird charm of
Chriftesas-tide to peerless offerings
more wjorthy of acceptance than the
most costly giftaat any other time.
Christmas i? no time to remind your
friends of their fntinuities, even for
their souls'. good. Keep books .of sets
mans and. moral essays for more suiflbV
S)o not present a person who, while
advancing in years, is diligently and
creditably trying to preserve intact the
graces and charms of her earlier days,
with "The Evening of Life, or Consola
tfons0 for the Aged;" do not give s
hopeless invalid a t onvenlent traveling
vase, or one with failing eyesight a
volume of taAtaliingengruviugs. Those
"whose poor fingers are weary -with
Bothers' work do not tiud gold thim
bles or darning bags any alleviation of
their daily toil. Give to such some
thing bright and tasteful to remind
them that life Is -not all drudgery, or
they mere drudges.
In the list for Christmas shopping do
pot let thev young and happy forget the
aged and the unhappy. Such v alue ex
tremely any little attentions.- and treas
ure them up with. heart-felt thankfulness
little dreamed of bj those who only have
to wish toTeceive.
In remembering cor friends oar gifts
-should be the spontaneous outpouring of
cur hearts, not the cold, dry, calculat
ing result1" of a debtor and creditor
ledger, whereby the claims of society
-and relationship are satisfied, and
To those whose friends are many and
dollars few. we would commend Christ-atas-cards,
which are always in good
taste. They oftentimes accompany a
gift, but they can speak very eloquently
when they are sent" by themselves.
Christmas cards are among the very few
things which axe lovely in spite of being
cheap. Some are radiant with a relig
ious halo; some recall summer's .birds
and flowers in the midst of winter's
gloom; others are bright with winter's
charm of frost and snow; all are ex
pressive of some sentiment, varied to
suit different tastes. Adapt those you
send to the ideas and characters of those
for whom they are intended. Diaries
and calendars never come amiss to rich
or poor, and as in geueral they com
mand a set price, it can not seem mean
to give what is always the bet of its
kind, besides linkinsr yourself in the re
membrance of auother in each passing
There are manv exquisite little vol
umes in poetry anil prose of a religious,
contemplative' nature, bound daintily to
suit the season. These are lovely re
membrances for tho-ie to whom the very
word Christina only brius sad memo
lies, who cannot join in the festivities of
the time, yel who might feel hurt if en
tirely passed by.
To those of slender means but large
hearts we would aLo commend, in the
selection of inexpensive gilts that &e
always acceptable, baskets and china
ware". Who can resin a basket? Who,
in the country, can ever see a basket
maker" wagon oing by without an
irresistible longing to rifle its contents,
or iu the c'.tv pa-s a basket-maker's den
without "just stopping in." Who
ever had as many baskets as they want
ed? and who ever had too many?
There are the scrap-basket and the
gardening-basket, ana the flower and
Suit-basket, and the work-basket and
knitting-basket, to say nothing of baby
baskets, and little children's dear pos
sessions in that way.
Manv of these vou can ornament
yourself, and thus enhance their value,
either u itb ribbons or crewel-work, or
both together, and thus have a tasteful
present at small cost. As to China, the
theme is simplv inexhaustible. There are
all the quaint Tittle majolica pitchers and
Japanese tea-pots and cups and saucers
and flower receivers in all sort of odd
shapes and sizes. Did any woman ever
express herself as satisfied with the
amount of China she had possessed? If
you buy such an article yourself, you
look lovingly at it. and think how pretty
it would appear on your own buffet, or
in your hanging cabinet, or filled with
flowers on your dinner table, aud you
sigh. There is the real sacrifice of
friendship. And it cost only do not re
veal the secret; that might kill the
charm; now you have selected it, and
relinquished "it, too, for the sake of a
Christmas oflering, all the wealth of
Aladdin's lamp could not redeem it
Its money value is sunk in its sentimen
tal value. Indeed, may not this truly
be said of all Christmas gifts?
The transforming genii have touched
them with the wand ol an enchanter.
You paid that patient young man or that
smiling girl so many shillings in money
value for them, but once in your pos
session, henceforth they are priceless.
A Strange (.'owplii-atioa.
Among the William H. Kennedys of
this city, of whom there are no less than
five, there is internal dissension that
threatens to divide the family against
itself. The causcfof the trouble is the
result of the election for Coroners.
William H. Kennedy was elected
Coroner by a large majority; but as
there are five of this kind of Kennedy
the majority of each is obviously much
smaller than that of the Kennedy taken
in a lump. To the credit of the Ken-
nedys. it must be said that there are
only two of them who.' are now threaten
ing to cut one another's throat over the
result of the election. The most strik
ing difference betweeu these two Ksn
neays is that one handles spirits and
the other bodies. William H- Kennedy,
of 364 Third avenue, sells liquor; Will
iam H. Kennedy, of 470 Pearl street. Is
an undertaker. " Returns from the other
three William H. Kennedys have not
yet come in. They will no doubt all
claim to be the Coroner rather than have
any hard feeling In the family. For the
presenttbe undertaker and the seller of
winks have the floor.
A Tribune reporter spoke to William
H. Kennedy, of 364 Third avenue,
Wednesday, on the subject nearest his
heart. Mr. Kennedy was behind his bar.
"Are you still laboring under the
hallucination," asked the reporter,
"that vou were elected Coroner Tnes-
"iUUuomation be hanged," replied
Mr.-Jfeinedy, inxo, affable ande'nesg
iaf manner., "rwar elected by hand

Correct, sir. And as I'm William
H' Kennedy, I suppose I'm elected. I
did all I could to help William H. Ken
nedy to be elected. There wasn't m
man who worked harder for his election
than 'I did; and as he was elected I am
Coroner. All the boys call me '"Coroner'
.'Did you celebrate your victory last
"Oh, yes. I 'blew off the boys. Be
fore the'election when the boys came
in for money to help the election I sent
'em all down to the undertaker, as he
was doing all that sort of work. Of
course, it was kind of him."
"Inasmuch as he claims to be the one
elected, what do you intend to do?"
I'm going io consult a lawyer about
it. And if I win the case I sfiall prob
ably sit on. his body the defeat will kill
hi, ile is a nervous, excitable fellow.
Everybody-seems to enjoy the joke. At
the same time there have" been all sorts
of hreatsjigainst me."
Ydu propose to bring an action.
"I shall undertake"
"But." interrupted the reporter, "if
you uudertake you'll lose your identity
you'll be toe undertaker."
"Well, I'll serve him with
Mr. Kennedy scorned the idea of hav
ing the Kennedy's numbered so that
they could be Identified.
William" H.' Kennedy, the undertaker,
was found in his shop leaning on an
empty and upright coffin. -He seemed
to be in an excited mood and proposed
to take his seat as Coroner if it cost him
"You are aware then that there is
some doubt as to your being William H.
Kennedy r" the reporter began.
"Aware! yes, aware!" roared Mr.
Kennedy. Yes, sir. Til take that seat
if it takes every drop of blood in say
body. I'm not Sammy Tilden. No,
I'm not I don't propose to give in.
I'll roast the other Kennedy's before 111
give up that seat" .
You are sure you are the Kennedy,
the only real full-blooded Coroner Ken
nedy." "Kennedy!" shouted the enraged
would-be Coroner. "Coroner Kennedy!
Fifty thousand people will tell you Tm
An effort was made to find the three
remaining William H. Kennedys, but
they were not found As the Coroners
elect do not take office until January 1,
1883, it is possible that the feud may
run high and that some of them mav
be killed off before that time. That
would simplify matters. N. Y. Tribune.
The Horn Industry.
If some of our humble friends with
four feet could give expression to their
thoughts, they would perhaps accuse
man of being a terribly rapacious ani
mal. Not only, they might say, doe3 he
eat our flesh, but he even utilizes our
skin in various ways, and the very
horns of our heads are cut and shaped
and polished and pieced together, until
they assume a hundred shapes which
nature never intended they should take.
What a shockingly selfish aud grasping
creature this man, as he calls liimselt,
must be! It may be urged that if our
four-footed brethern could speak, they
might not have these or any other
thoughts to communicate. This, how
ever, is a frivolous and superficial ob
jection, for does not the power of
speech necessarily involve the ability
to think? but even If this is not so
and in our present mood we are not
concerned to dispute the point it is at
least certain that if animals could think
and speak, the reflections we have put
into their mouths would be very natural
and appropriate, and from their point
of view, even reasonable.
Time was when, from this point of
observation, we were much greater sin
ners than we are now. In former days,
and not so long since, either, the horn
industry was of considerable importance
in this country. There are, indeed,
plenty of people who are by no means
willing to confess themselves old, who
remember when this material was used
for a multitude of purposes for which
glass and various metals aie uow em
ployed. We are apt to think with pity
of our forefathers, who used it for their
lamps, and lanterns, and windows; but
it is as well to remember, on the other
hand, that it possessed several recom
mendations, by no means to be despised.
True, it wa3 not so transparent as could
have been wished, nor in those earlier
days was it turned out of hand so artis
tically as it has been by the skill of
more recent times. But then it required
a good deal of breaking, and so cur an
cestors were spared some of the irrita
tions which we unfortunate mortals
have to endure. In other directions the
substitution of glass for horn has more
to be said in its favor. The modern
tumbler, for example, is a distinct im
provement upon the drinking-horn
which it has supplanted.
At the present time to come to sober
facts horn is used for the most part in
the manufacture of combs, knife-handles,
and mouth-pieces of pipes, al
though it is employed also, to a limited
extent, for fancy "articles. It is still
utilized, too, for tho hunting-horn, but
the orchestral instruments denominated
"horns," are now made of brass.
Strange to say, one of the best kinds of
horn lor artistic purposes is that for
which we are indebted to the comely
and graceful rhinoceros, and it is. so be
cause it is solid instead of being hollow,
as most other horns are. It is worth
noting, too. that although the breeder
has done much to improve the flesh of
domesticated animals, it does not ap
pear that any improvement has been
superinduced either in the size or tex
ture of the horns. It is suggested, in
deed, that the horns of wUd animals
are more permanent than those of the
domesticated races. London Live

suppose that that impress'on was deep
ned by the constant reiterat'on of the

and finding everyone of those ninety
days rainy Ones. I spent about ninety

fiart clear skies above me and saw bnt

light. When it does ram in England
it seems to rain ea-ily and quietly, and
their rains do not seem so penetrating
