A CHRISTMAS QUESTION
Oh! Wise Men of the ages,
Do you recall—
If on the second birthday of the
The Star shone out at all?
If angels sang,
And wise men sent or brought
Rich gifts again ?
If shepherds in the fields
Recalled their last year’s quest,
Or if the old inkeeper
Thought again about his Guest?
Oh! Wise Men, could it be
That Mary was the only one
The second birthday of her Son?

ADD FESTIVE NOTE
Nothing adds more to the festive
spirit of Christmas than a wide
assortment of home-made candies,
says Ruth Curent, State home dem-,
There should be several pounds
of pulled mints, chocolate and car
amel fudge, nut and fruit bonbons,
and cherry caramels.
By following the simple rule of
candy making and having faith in
your own art rather than believing
that luck plays a large part, a
variety of candies can be made at
home. Not only will the home-made
product be beautiful to look at but
satisfying as well.
When a recipe calls for cooking
to the ’’soft ball” stage or the
‘‘hard ball’ ‘stage, it means just
that. This test is made by dropping
a small amount of the boiling sy
rup in a half cup of cold water.
Then by feeling, one can judge
whether the candy has reached the
“soft ball” or “hard ball” or the
stiffer stages called "for in the re
One of the most common mis
takes made is that of beating can
dies as hey are removed from the
fire. This makes a grainy, sugary,
Fudge should be cooked to the
“soft ball” stage, removed from
the fire, and allowed to cool until
lukewarm. Then it should be beat
until the whole mixture has crys
With an ample supply of candies
on hand, there will be something to
satisfy the sweet tooth of the
hungry crowd of young people
when they come in from a theatre
party or to those guests who drop
A SAFE CHRISTMAS TO YOU
Here’s wishing you a Merry
Christmas —and a safe Christmas.
This year, if past precedents pre
vail, many a Christmas that starts
out merrily will end in tragedy
because of fire. A dead child, a
seriously burned parent, a destroy
ed home —these are the fruits of
carelessness and ignorance in re
gard to fire hazards.
The danger of fire always exists,
and with the Holiday season a
number of especially grave hazards
appear. One of the worst of these
is the use of real candles on Christ
mas trees. As the tree dries, it will
very easily catch fire from even the
slightest flame. And even though
a tr?e is green enough to resist
candle flame, the danger of cloth
ing and decorations igniting is ex
tremely great. Use electric tree
candles—and buy outfits of good
quality to reduce the hazard of
Christmas costumes, of paper
and flimsy cloth, are another im
portant danger, especially to chil
dren too young to be p.operly
careful. Such costumes should nev
er be worn in the presence of open
flame of any kind, such as a fire
i During Christmas, more than or
dinary7 care should be taken with
matches and smoking materials.
With a litter of package wrapping
about, and the house in general
happy disorder, carelessness with a
match or cigarette may be the pre
lude to a conflagration.
Above all then—keep fire dan
gers in mind this Christmas, and
| be safe. It isn’t hard. And it may
save a life. —lndustrial News Re
