aa to what to buy for a Chiiatmas gift far
man, woman or child, it la always a safe
proposition to turn your attention to books.
. Books each year are made more attract
Ive for this very purpose, for the publshers
know that all over the country the month
of December Is the great time for telling
their productions. We have made extra
preparations this year, with a larger stock,
a better pssorled stock, and a stock es
pecially adapted to the holiday season.
In this space we can only direct attention
to a very small portion, more with a view
to attracting your attention to this section
of our store than the thought of placing
before you a representation of our stock.

father was dead and whose mother was
in one of the city hospitals. The author
tells how the kind hearted firemen cared
for him and found Mm a good home; how
his mother was located; and how an oper
ation on his eyes made him to see. We
are told very many other strange and In
teresting things about Jack. Finally,
through a grievous misunderstanding, the
fire chief compelled Jack's removal from
his beloved firemen and engine. He was
given a home in an engine house of a
suburban town, but Jack was sad and ha
would not i-un to any mora fires. He, how
aver, made friends with everyone and
went to church all by himself, regularly,
Visiting the different churches and de
nominations. Mrs. Wesselhoeft's previous
animal and nature stories have been much
appreciated and we hope we shall hear
mora of Jack and his friends. Little,
