And on the MI vet , or hearts within ,
Society has been shopping the past seven
flays and has had no tlmo for frivolities out-
Bide tlio purchasing and making of gifts for
loved ones , a custom which thank heaven
grows moro nnd moro ns the years go by.
Christmas customs were for many years a
blending of pagan rites nnd Christian festi
vals with nn Imlcltnito period of tlmo set
nsldo for their observance and our first
pictures of the great holiday are framed In
oak and vines of the .ancient Druids. It is
Impossible to llnd the exact line where the
heathen practices end and the Christian
holiday begins or where the carol supple
mented the wassail bowl.
Probably there was moro given to merry
making in the old days when the lord of
misrule had his innings , but the fact re
mains that nil hearts grow u little softer us
they recall the Christmas of the bygone and
try lo bring some of tlio old time cheer into
the hearts of modern soroogcs if there bo
nny in these flit do sclcie days. However ,
Tiny Tim struck the keynote of the day , and
itJlmls echo in hearts through all Christen
dom upon this morning "God bless us
every one. "
The wedding of Miss Yost and Mr. Offutt
Thursday evening nt the First Presbyterian
church wus among the distinctive society
events of the season , in keeping with the
Yulctldc cheer which reigns. It was u pic
turesque wedding , rich In its simplicity , and
the bride never looked more radiant than on
this occasion. It is a pleasure to suy picas-
lint things of Miss Yost for she is deserving
of all the peed things that can bo said
Bright , Intelligent nnd withal pretty she
combines all the essentials of thu genuine
'guid wife" and will bring to Mr. Offutfs
household nil the graces of mind nnd person
that the most fastidious Benedict might
After the wedding a number of the friends
of Mr. nnd Mrs. Yost and the bride and green
made merry nt a wedding dinner at - theYost
residence , Twenty-third and Cuss. When
the bride ascended the stairway instead of
tin-owing the usual bouquet to the brides
maids she threw the sprig of mistletoe she
carried in her prayer book among the ushers
Mr. Nethertnn Hall being the fortunate
winner. Miss Mary Sherwood was nlso for
tunate in capturing Iho ring which was con
L'calcd in the wedding cnlso and If there is
any truth in the old legend she will be the
next to follow in the bride's footsteps.
There is a pleasant bit of romance con
nccted with this marriage which is said tc
have had its inception at the ranch of Colonc
Pratt , where Miss Yost and Mr. Offutt were
guests lust summer , at least Colonel am
Mrs. Pratt were guests at the wedding , am
that would seem to indicate that "there is
something In it. "
Monday evening Mr. Offutt entertained
his best man and the ushers at the Omaha
club , In addition to several other friends
who , could it have been possible , would also
have-been ushers on the occasion of his mar
riage. The guests were : Messrs. Thomas
of Middletown , Ky. , Judge Davis , Nethcrton
Hall , Uobert Patrick , Captain Crowder ,
Henry Wyman , Luther Drake , Colonel
Pratt , John Patrick- , Frank Hamilton , Mr.
Voss , Mr. Crofoot , Mr. Barlow.
The coining ot the 1'rWeton Glee club is
exciting pleasurable anticipations in the
swell world , and with Hoyd's theater deco
rated in orange and hktclxm Thursday even
ing , with everybody in full dress and the
ladles without lints , as is requested , the
Bceno promises to bo a brilliant one. Seats
will go on sale "Wednesday morning at U
o'clock , and the chart will bo absolutely
clean with the exception of the seats
that are to bo reserved for the
patronesses , it having been under
stood that this concession would bo made in
defense to tlioso who have kindly consented
to net in that capacity. In order that the
assembly may not bo greatly interfered with
it is announced Hint the performance will
begin promptly nt 8 o'clock , M > that by 10
thu college men may bo dancing to different
musicat the Millard. The west has not
been honored by a visit of the Princeton
collegians for many years , and it therefore
seems a duty of Omaha people to make it an
ovc'iit of importance that wo may bo honored
again by their presence.

To t Kim of the irnrnpyi.'l'calc Tin Mill Snt-
Iqttictnry no Far.
Diuowoon , S. D. , DcCi 2-1. [ Special to
Tin : Bun. ] Since November 14 the big millet
ot the Harney Peak Tin Mining company
has been pounding awaj. . ' Oh the stanniferous
ores of that region , and very soon the fruits
of the lirst systematic ? energetic effort to
give to the American market tin of abso
lutely homo production will bo made known
to the public. So fur not enough is known
outside oC tlio management of the mill to
base an accurate estimate upon further
than to sny in a general way that the ex
pectations of this company have apparently
been realized. Thcj inill > lias a capacity
at present of 'J50 ( pus per day , and
is so equipped that it may Do arranged to
run double that amount , but for the present ,
which is more a test run than anything else ,
the mill is only being worked nt half its
capacity. The great ore bins of the mill are
full of rock , availing reduction , nnd the
mines are so far developed as lo furnish , if
necessary , the full supply of ore needed to
run the mill at its utmost.
Tlio mill building , which is located on a ,
hillside , is lOLfeet by 12S feet in dimension ,
with an average height of forty feet , but the
vertical height from the point where
the ore goes in at the top of the mill to
where the concentrates arc taken out at the
foot of the hill is 1'JO ' feet.
The mill is furnished with two 80-horse-
powcr boilers and is run by u tandem Corliss
cntrino , supplied with nn enormous wheel
thirty-six inches wide and fourteen feet in
diameter , weighing nine tons. The ere
house , with a capacity of 000 tons , is built
beneath a spur of the Burlington Missouri
Hivcr railroad , which connects the live prin
cipal mines of the company with the mill ami
rims on a level with the top of the mill at tlio
highest point up the hill. The ore is trans
ported from here to the ere bin , constructed
by the side of the mill about " 00 feetdistant ,
by meant of an ordinary ere car , and is not
touched again by human hands until the
concentrates are taltcn out nt the foot
of the hill , being automatically convoyed
from the crushers to the Hunt-
inpton mills , Cornish rolls , jigs ,
and concentrating tables in proper order.
All the machinery is of latest design and
invention , and the plant Is undoubtedly tlio
most improved and best equipped tin concen
trating plant over erected. Some of this
machinery must yet bo experimented with
to prove its service in concentration , and a
number of changes and improvements may
bo found necessary before milling of the tin
ere of Hartley Peak district proves an as
Operation of the mill upon ere from the
Gertio mine has been suspended for an in-
dclinito pcrbd owing to the fact that the tin
crystals obtained from this ere are too line
to bo saved by the jigs at present In nso in
the mill. The mill is now running on ere
from the Cowboy mine , which ere contains
the coarsest tin crystals found in tlio
entire Harney Peak region. Tlio company
is as yet undetermined as to what methods
and machinery will bo required to separate
the finer tin crystals found in Hie ore from
the Gertio proxu'ty. ]
In the main , however , the plant is accom-
pllshim ; expectations , ami tlio results of its
operation thus far have been promising and
satisfactory. The company will separately

of tlio average value of the tin rock of tlio

Superintendent ChMriti states that the
company will conime yj , shipping concen
trates of the mill east f r.i'ollning , about the
beginnlngof the now year. The company as
yet has no plant for smelting the concentrates
and for a time tlio rcilnlrig will bo done cast.
It lias not yet been decided whether the con
centrates will bo shipped to Aurora , 111 , ,
Omaha or Jersey City J'or.treatinent.
The placing ot machinery in the now gold

I understand thtit Marlon Crawford lias
been Induced to lengthen his stay In Amer
ica , anil It is now qutto probable that \vo
will have the novelist with us during the
spring and possibly a larger part'of next
summer. When Mr. Crawford first talked
of coming over , It was his intention to glvo
but two era thrco readings. Hut' the
American public- has seen so little of the
novelist that a demand came In for readings ,
which soon lengthened out the "two or
three readings , " to twenty or thirty. It Is
not unlikely now that Mr. Crawford will bo
one of the Chautauqua lecturers next sum
mer , If ho can so arrange his plans asto
stay In America.
That Marion Crawford has created a most
pleasant impression there is no doubt. As a
reader he is moat attractive , and his person
ality dr.iws many toward him. Ills manners

It Is generally believed by well-posted
English literary people that Swinburne
would have been honored with an Immediate
succession to tlio English poet laureateship
if it were not for the extreme politics of
which at one time ho was Iho apostle. In
Swinburne's recent years his political heat
has , of course , been stcail Uy cooling , nnd
the characteristic attitude of English
authors at the present moment toward party
politics Is amiably Laodicean. There are li
fe w exceptions , the most conspicuous proba ,
bly being Mr. Swinburne's fellow poet-
William Morris , whoso socialism , is as n g
grcsslvo as ever. Mr. Lewis Morris has been
an unsuccessful liberal candidate , nnd Is
popular with Welsh libeiyils. MissMnthilde
Blind is n staunch liberal and a
member ot the Women's Liberal federation ,
while Miss Jean Ingelow holds conservative
views. Jerome 1C. Jerome is a memberof the
Junior Coustilulional cluh , and n short limo
since took the trouble to nttcnd the Mnrylc-
liono registration court in order to support
Iho claim to a vote which the conservative
agent inado on his behalf. As every reader
of her books will know , "Edna Lyall" is ar
dently attached to tlio liberal cause , which
she helps with both time and money at East
bourne , her place of residence. George
Meredith lias always been a staunch liberal ,
and is a member of the National Liberal
club , where he sometimes stays on his flying
visits lo London , while his friend ,
"Grant Allen , " is , of course , a pronounced
socialist. It is curious to notice , by tlio way ,
how steadily socialism is spreading among
such members of the literary and artistic
professions ns interest , themselves in public
affairs at all. Hldcr HnggniH , on the other
hand , Is as conservative as most Suffolk
squires , and at thu general election last
summer gave some help to the conservative
candidates in that county. But the attitude
of English' novelists generally is well ex
pressed by Walter Bcsunt , who , in his
weekly contribution to a tyndlcate of news
papers , is never tired at exclaiming : "A
plauguo on both your houses. " Tothis ob
jurgation , even Robert Buchanan , admirer
though ho once was of Mr. Gladstone ,
would , I fancy , now give a hearty 'Amen. "

Eugene Field makes the name of his eldest
daughter , Mary French Field , familiar to
the reading public by copyrighting Ills latest
book , "With Trumpet and Drum , " in her
name , and all the royalties from tlio book
will go to her. The Scrllmors do not know
ISugcno Field in the matter at all , save as
author of the clover little book ; all remit
tances arc made to the daughter. This
daughter is the Chicago poet's eldest child.
To her friends she is scared ; known by her
own name , her father having nicknamed her
"Trottie , " and by Ibis nome du guerre she is
known by everybody. Miss Field is
generally her father's traveling com
panion wherever ho goes , and ho is as fond
of her as she is proud of him. Miss Field is
a girl of 10 , with a pair of sharp , penetrating
eyes that see everything. Like many west
ern girls , she is tall , and has a freshness nnd
originality about her that charms nnd de
lights everybody who comes In contact with
her. She is still a schoolgirl. Her familiar
ity with her father's work is thorough. I
remember when , in tlio poet's Chicago homo ,
ono evening , ho agreed to recite a iwem of
his own , written many years before. In ono
place he found himself perfectly at sea for a
line , but "Trottio" quickly threw her father
the "cue1 and ho com pleted the poem until

Many stories have been circulated con
cerning the repeated declinations of manu
scripts that proved enormous successes
when thc'V ultimately found n publisher
nil of them showing how fallible the most
experienced "readers" may bo in Judging
of tlio possibilities of success. But there is
another phase of this subject which has
rarely been touched on. It is not generally
known that the acceptance of some now
famous books was originally decided by the
merest chance occurrence a whim of the
"publisher's reader , " nnd sometimes the
publisher's opposition to his "reader's"
whims. 1 know a publisher who once said
laughingly that he made ono of his biggest
successes with a book which lie published
because of his "reader's" bitter opposition
to it. "I published it simply out of spite , "
ho laughed. "I half believed H was
Jealous of it bcca-uso it was something like a
boolc of his. "
Two incidents occur to mo Just In this con
nection. Ono relates to a poet whoso name
is now on almost everybody's lips , His lirst
poem was sent , some years back , to a maga
zine , the editor of which was u crabbed dys
peptic. His assistant nnd "reader" came to
htm ono morning with the poem , which he
had just finished reading.
"Thero is some genuine poetry by a now
pout , " ho said , with enthusiasm. "What do
you think wo had better do with it ? "
The managing editor barely glanced .at it.
"Does tlio writer send postage for return ? "
lie asked ,
"No , " was the answer.
"Then throw It in tlio waste basket , " said
the editor , gruffly. His assistant was so an
noyed that he folded up thu poem , tossed it
impatiently into tlio basket , and left tlio
The next day the editor came to him and
apollglzed. "After you had gone , " ho said ,
" 1 fished the thing out nnd read it. 1 think it
is well , 1 think wo hud hotter print it ut
once. " And so the loot's career begun.
Another manuscript many years ngo was
read by a publisher , who handed it to his
right-hand man , with the request that ho
pass Judgment on It. "I rather like It , "
bald the publisher. "Toll mo what you
thinlr. " The next day thu man came in and
gave tlio manuscript a contemptuous toss the

A spirit of curious enterprise is seizing the
English and continental publishers , and no
periodical is scarcely considered complete
which does not glvo away something in the
shape of prizes , Thus , one paper otters "a
novel by Charles Diukcns nnd n pair of

When Eugene Field read from his writ

playing an engagement at the theater where
the Chicago poet gave his afternoon reading.
Ho was allowed to use Miss Collins * dress

famous dancer's parapliiinalla , lie saw stuck
on a pin-cushion lour liirgo diamond ( ? )
shawl pins. Just as lie was examining one
of the pins , ho was told it was time for him
to "go on. " Mechanically sticking Iho pin
of head-light hlzo into his lapel , ho went
