ANIMATED CHRISTMAS SCENES
Many Novelty Spectacles Attraet
Xotice of Holiday Shoppers at
Enough unique Christmas scenes are be
ing enacted about the new Prandels store
to make a spectacular Christmas panto
mine. Several novelties have Just been
presented during the last few days that
have proved a great attraction for the
hordes of holiday shoppers.
One of the most striking as well as clever
Christmas groupings Is made by the gallop
ing reindeer and sleigh In midair. In the
center of the, new store, directly under Ihu
great light court, is a flve-tandom teojn
of galloping reindeer, hitched to a toy-
laden sleigh. In which Is a midget Santa
Claus. The deers are suspended from In
visible wires high above the heads of the
crowd. The nlelgh of Santa Clans Is in
tho act of sliding down a snow covered
roof. A simple mechanism makes the rein
deer gallop In the air, jingling the bells In
their harness. The novelty has an added
Interest because the reindeer arc mounted
from real deer hides and perfectly posed
for running. The lead reindeer In the flve
tandem Is fitted with chiming bolls.
Several original effects have been fhown
In the Brandels windows during the last
few days and the proprietors say there ore
many more to follow. A live and active
"Teddy bear" In the cage wlpdow, with
scores of his little brother bruins, delights
the children with his antics. Mrs. Katien,
Jam.ncr' and "Der Captain." In the same
window, add humor to the scene. A pair
of Hwhuming tlolls do a "tank drama"
sketch In tho mechanical toy window, and
the dulls' wedding Is as popular as ever.
