TALKING ABOUT TURKEY
The following description, taken
from the Saturday Evening Post, of
an old-fashioned Christmas turkey, as
prepared and eaten In the days when
we were all younger than we are now,
Is the best of Its kind we have seen
this evening. It will make your mouth
water to read It:
But there was a kind of a turkey
that they used to serve in those parts
on high state occasions. It was a
turkey that in his younger days rang
ed wild in the wood3 and ate the
mast. At the frosted coming of the
fall they penned him up and fed him
grain to put an edge of fat on his
lean; and then fate descended upon
him and he died the ordained death of
his kind. But, oh! the glorious reap reappearance
pearance reappearance when he reached the table!
You sat with weapons pojised and
ready a knife in the right hand, a
fork in the left and a spoon handy
and looked upon him and watered at
the mouth until you had riparian
His breast had the vast brown full fullness
ness fullness that you see in pictures of old
Flemish friars. His legs were like
rounded columns and unadorned.
moreover, with those superfluous pa paper
per paper frills; and his tail was half as big
as your hand and protruded grandly,
like- the rudder of a treasure ship, and
had flanges of sizzled richness on it.
Here was no pindling fowl that had
taken the veil and lived the cloistered
life; here was no wiredrawn and
trained-down cross-country turkey,
but a lusty giant of a bird that would
have been a cassowary, probably, or
an emu, if he had lived, his bosom a
white mountain of lusciousness, his in interior
terior interior a Goleonda and not a Golgotha.
At the touch of the steel his skin
crinkled delicately and fell away; his
tissues flaked off in tender strips; and
from him arose a bouquet of smells
more varied and more delectable than
anything ever turned out by the justly
celebrated Islands of Spice. It was a
sin to cut him up and a crime to leave
He had not been stuffed by a tax taxidermist

master hand of one of those natural natural-born

chestnuts or pecans stirred Into It un until
til until It was a veritable mine of good goodness,
ness, goodness, and this stuffing has caught up
and retained all of the delectable
dripping and essences of his being,
and his flesh had the savor of the
things upon which he had lived the
sweet acorns and beechnuts of the
woods, the buttery goobers of the
; plowed furrows, the shattered corn of
the horse yard.
Nor was he a turkey to be eaten by
the mere slice. At least, nobody ever
did eat him that way you ate him by
Tods, poles and perches, by townships
and by sections ate him from his
neck to his hocks and back again,
from his throat latch to his crupper,
from center to circumference, and
from pit to dome, finding something
better all the time; and when his
frame was mainly denuded and loom loomed
ed loomed upon the platter like a scaffolding,
you dug into his cadaver and found
there small hidden joys and titbits.
You ate until the pressure of your
waistband stopped your watch and
your vest flew open like an engine engine-house
house engine-house door and your stomach was
pushing you over on your back and
sitting upon you, and then you half
closed your eyes and dreamed of cold cold-sliced

for breakfast the next morning and
turkey soup made of the bones of hfs
carcass later on. For each state of

and saying further that the Ocala
Baptist Sunday School held the unique
position of having the largest per

day Sunday school In the state of Florida. He
also stated that on Sunday last in the
face of the pouring rain they had the
largest attendance of any Sunday
school In the city, proving conclusive conclusively

very kindly to water.
Before the arrival of Santa Claus,
who had so many other engagements
(or a punctured tire) that he was
somewhat belated, Miss Walker, the
Sandwich Island missionary, gave a
beautiful child's history of the com
ing of the child Jesus, also the little
daughter of Mrs. Lanier Robertson re recited

beautiful and dainty manner. Then a
little miss who had possibly seen not
more than a half dozen visits of old
Santa, and whose name most appro appropriately
priately appropriately is "Fairy" Hester, sang Mar Martin
tin Martin Luther's cradle song, and the dra dramatic
matic dramatic action that the little miss put
into the song was simply marvelous,
and at its conclusion received a round
of generous applause.
The children of the Baptist Sunday
school are always taught that it is
more blessed to give than to receive,
so each scholar came with a donation
of money or provisions which will be
handed over to the King's Daughters
for distribution. Old Santa Claus pre presented

pretty basket of fruit, among which

CHRISTMAS WOOING OF CUPID.
Mystic Lovo Spells With Apples In
Apples enter into many Christmas
spells. In Austria on Christmas eve
the apple must be cut In halves in the
dark and without being touched by the
hand. The left hand half i3 then placed
In the bosom of the diviner and the
right hand half behind the door of the
bedchamber. Then at midnight, should
the spell have been fully carried cut,
the spirit or "astral" of the beloved
one appears, standing beside the half
which was laid behind the door.
Another charm is to cut an apple in
two and count the seeds In each half.
If the numbers are even marriage will
be soon. If a seed is cut in two there
will be trouble in the course of love,
and should two seeds be cut there will
be early widowhood.
A Sicilian maiden throws the fruit
from her window into the street and
watches. Should it lie long without
being picked up she will be widowed
soon after marriage. Should it be pick picked

be within the coming year, but should
it be picked up by a man then she will

Coincidence of Queen Victoria's
Sorrows at Christmas Time.
One of the most extraordinary
Christmas days London ever had was
that of 1S91. The shops had been, as
usual, specially prepared and decorat
ed with the object of attracting the
buyers when suddenly, on Dec. 22, a
thick fog came on. Not until the
evening of Dec. 2G did it lift. This
particular fog held the record for be
ing the heaviest London had known.
Thirty lives were lost and over 200
Christmas, 1SG0, was the coldest
England and Scotland had ever expe
rienced. Just three years later Christ
mas day was marred by news that
William Makepeace Thackeray, the
great novelist, was dead.
The late Queen Victoria's most mem
orable Christmases were the most
pathetic. It was In less than a fort fortnight
night fortnight from Dec. 25, 18G1, that her hus
band, the prince consort, passed away.
So affected was her majesty that she
allowed fifteen years to pass before
she celebrated Christmas day in the
traditional fashion. Then on Christ
mas day in 1872 the Prince of Wales,
who became King Edward VII., was
so ill that his life was despaired of.
But he made a remarkable recovery.
USE MOST CHRISTMAS CANDY.

Three million dollars' worth of
Jhristmas candies is New York city's
annual holiday bill.
The amount of money spent by New
Yorkers during the holidays for candy
alone is so great that it seems out of
proportion to the amount donated for
charity until it is remembered that
perhaps one-third or more of all the
candy bought during the last half of
December Is given away by secular
and religious societies, by Sunday
schools and churches, and that con consequently

in the mountains last summer or from the kind old lady who patted you on the

"nice child" and she would always remember you.
At any rate, when the mall man takes the place of Santa Claus he has a

young folks ought not to be allowed
to overlook. It Is a version of blind

adapted to the seasun of romps and
runabout games. To play it some
one of the party is blindfolded and
has a whistle hung on a cord put round
his neck. The whistle should rest on
the back of the blind man. The fun
consists in seeing who can blow the
blind man's whistle without being
caught for his daring and compelled
to assume the role of blind man. There
Is no time limit. The fun can continue
until every one is too much out of
breath to go on with it or until each
player has been made blind man.

In ancient days they were associated

the Druid ceremonies at which some sometimes

us that it was also significant of the
resurrection. How fitting its use to today

history! Who knows but that the
Romans may have derived their idea
from the Persians, who have a saying
to the effect that the sun never shad shadows
ows shadows the holly tree and who used to
make a concoction from the bark
which they threw in the face of a new newborn
born newborn child as an omen of good luck ?
Closely associated with the holly is
the pearly mistletoe with its romance.
The Druids held a solemn procession
each year on the sixth day of the
moon nearest the new year, going
forth wth a golden sickle to cut the
mistletoe from the sacred oak. The
oak to the Druids was a symbol of
strength. It was also the tree sacred
to Jupiter, and only the mistletoe that
grew on an oak had holy virtue. Each
