The Spirit of Christmas m HAT the spirit of Christmas is upon us one need but walk through the shops these days and be convinced. Visit the toy department of any store and learn that Christ- mas, with its kind old Santa Clans, and, in fact, the whole Yuletide spirit lie deep in the hearts, of the children. Perhaps there are among the grownups some who haven't noticed that Christmas dolls and rocking horses and skates and such delectable things are ever so different from the common or garden variety of the year round. Miss Bessie, the Christmas doll, for instance, is not to have her silk clad body and waxen curls swathed in brown paper and delivered by an ordinary delivery wagon. Most emphatically not! The spirit of Christmas is abroad, and he whispers of Santa Claus and reindeers that pull the jolly old man and his sleigh over the snow covered roof tops and stand prancing and pawing at each home while Santa slips down the chimney. For it is in just this way that the Christmas dolly, the Irish mail, the'rocking horse and even the big toy automobile are transported from the show cases and windows of the depart- ment stores to a place beneath the Christmas trees of eager lit- tle girls and boys on Christmas eve. If any one doubts this let him ask even the first little girl or boy he meets in the toy- lands.—Washington Star.

Agen, proprietor of the Madrid tvillage mutual creamery, Inistalled a cheesemaking plaat, but, before he could get started at cheese- making (in August, 1915), the bottom dropped out of the cheese market, and his cheese plant made cheese only two. months. However, in September of this year cheese prices began to look up, and in October Mr. Agen began adding cheese to his regular butcer production, and the steady Tise of cheese prices since 'that time has enabled him as a mutual creamery proprietor to net $2.30 per hundred DO- the pat- rons during November, while the prospect looks perhaps a little het- ,ter for this month of December. Unitil Monday, December 18. he was making whole-milk, or full-cream, cheese, but since that date the price of 60 per e&ntt-^skim has been so aitcractive that he has changed lo manufacturing that .grade of cheese, which he expects will nee •the patrons a little better for De . cember than for November. Ordinary expectations for thie creamery would be 2,500 lbs.of milk but so. enticing are ihe prices now that 4,500 lbs. of milk are oomiag in every day. So. large a ^uanticyof milk compels him bore^uire patrons to bring 'their milk daily instead of every other day, buc nobody complains when he is getting a (good price. In fact, chis makes the substantial basis possible for a real merry Christmas. Abouc 1,200 cows now .are contributing to this cream- ery as against 225 with which it started in April, 1915.

Jt has lieeome the custom to imagine that every ceremony connected with the Christmns holidays in old England was observed on the holiday itself. Nothing could be further from the real facts. It should be remembered that In England of old, and to some extent even In industrial England of todny, Christmas does not refer only to the holiday itself, hut to the twelve days and nights immediately following the | feast of the Nativity. It would easily ho discovered by anybody who took the trouble to give a few moments' ! thought to the subject that it would be nigh physically impossible lo fol- low all the ceremonials and customs connected with the Christmas seusov on one day.
