strikes." . . A grim Christmas

in The Mountaineer office . . when we
were doing our usual three days job in

said, "I certainly do feel extravagant
to-day ... I have just bought two
thousand dollars worth of clothes. . "
I gasped. . For goodness sakes . . .
where does Charles expect to wear
two thousand dollars worth of clothes
. . where is he going? . . then I came
out of my concentration fog ... of
proof eading . . sufficiently to realize

suits for the men's department of C.
E. Ray's Sons . . and not clothes for
himself ... it was a terrific shock. '.

Walter thought an electric train
would he just an ideal gift for his
young daughter of two summers,
and bought the train about four
weeks before Christmas, and near
ly wore it out before the day came
