THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
Is Best Despite
Modernistic art and architecture
are very fine, but an old-fashioned
Christmas is still the best. Using
the traditional colors of red And
green as a basis.'the occasion can
be brought up-to-date with pretty
. modern angels and worldly gnomes
' of plastic, tin and wood.
i Ideas for decorating the house
. require forethought and planning,
i even though the job itself must
'wait for the final hours. Home
decorators offer a few suggestions
, which will help homemakers to plan
j more . attractive Christmas decK
. rations. i
GOLD STANDARD - Broad,
i gold Christmas ribbon will be the
; motif, looped extravagantly, . in
; swags over the tree and eaught up
with clusters of big gold Christ
mas balls strung together. Light
! this tree with all gold lights. Re
: peat the theme of gold ribbon
swags and gold oaii ior xawe,
mantel and window decorations. ' .
: SILVER BELLS Shining sil
ver bells of all sizes spangled thick
ly over the tree will be different
and festive for Christmas, especial
ly with garlands of little shells
painted silver and strung together.
Or have evergreen wreaths with
silvered shells worked into them
instead of the usual holly berries
or pine cones.
FLASHES OF RED An ever
green tree splashed with huge red
artificial poinsettas made into
garlands, strings of . cranberries,
red glass balls, then all white
lights would be very festive in
deed, especially if complemented
over the house with evergreen
boughs tied with white ribbon and
clusters of a big red poinsettias.
DELLA ROBBIA An old idea
that has a classic enduring beauty
is the use of small, perfect, real
fruits entwined with Christmas
greens to make garlands and
wreaths for Christmas decorations.
Especially decorative is a wreath
like this made on a stout frame

ROVER DOG GOES TO A
SCOtTS SCRAP BOOK
Everyone knows what
a hurry and scurry time
it is just before Christ
mas. Rushing here , and

shopping list and certain

"Kechew! Kerchew! Kerchew!"
That's, a lot of sneezing, but is
just what Rover Dog was doing
when he stopped running after
Reddy Fox. If he had had
hay fever and epizootics all at
once, he couldn't have sneezed any
worse nor had any more water run j
out of his eyes. It s a mignty oaa
thing to have red pepper in youV
nose and eyes, and it was about
all Rover could do to work his
way back home. But after butting
his head into a lot of trees, bush
es; corn stalks and other things,
he did get back to the yard, but
he heard some mighty loud calls
for him long before he reached the
lot fence,' for Mrs. Man was out
in the yard, waving her apron in
the wildest .sort of way. "Here,
Rover, here Rover; Sic him pup!
Catch him, dog!" Oh, she was
making a-, noise, but she couldn't
get Rover excited. He had trou
bles of his own, and felt like call
ing "Here, Mrs. Man;-come here,
and put out this fire!" Yes, he
was just dragging along, with his
head hung down, not half seeing
Where he was going; and tears were
just streaming from his eyes, and
he was coughing and sneezing worse
than anybody that Mrs. Man had
You may be perfectly sure that
Rover had no notion of running
anybody else while his eyes and
nose were in such a fix, and he
went to Hee-Haw's water trough
and stuck his whole head down un
der the water, to wash that red
pepper out of his eyes and mouth.
That helped some, but he still
was in no fix for running after
"strange animals,'' nor even after
men or animals that he knew
about. He thought he knew gome
thing else that was better for
what ailed him, and he went under
the house and dug still deeper that
hole in the cool sand, and he lay
down in it, but he didn't stop cough
ing and sneezing for ever so long.
This was a time when he would
have agreed with anybody who
wanted to say that a "dog's life"
was not plumb full of days of fun.
And now Mrs. Man was certainly
in a bad fix. Mr. Man gone to town,
and he had the gun. . Rover Dog
poisoned or done something awful
to that miserable; old owl, so that
he could do nothing but lie down
and sneeze and cough and whine;
a Curious man, with short legs, but
arms as long as bean poles; a
coon and a possum, and she didn't
know how many other wild animals',
all robbing the place, and in the
big daytime, too, and right in her
face! Who ever heard of such a
thing? Oh, if only Rover could go
after them! "Kerchew! Kerchew!"
No Rover certainly couldn't go. He
would do well if he lived. If only
Uncle Joe, or Tom or just SOME
BODY would come! "Poof, poof,"
oh, her pot was boiling over, and
by the time she got to it enough
water and peas had boiled out to '
nearly put out the fire. And now !(
smoke, smoke, smoke! Oh, her
bread was burning up, and she'
blistered her hand when she grab-i
bed the hot handle of the griddle j
" it-out using a rag. It looks like '
she had all the trouble there was, '
buc she didn't. . There was more. 1

Owl back from the woods where
had led Rover into that pepper
party. And if ever an ' owl DID
lose his dignity and his wise looks,
Who-Who did it right then, as he
laughed, with a great string of
"Who-whoooos" , right in Mrs.
Man's face, and swooped down and
picked up a pretty red frying-size
pullet, and "swooshed" off towards
his house. - . Jay Bird says that he
really felt sorry for Mrs. Man, and
that he flew down to the well and
did some of his softest "woogle
woogling,' instead of screaming,
"Jay! Jay!" as he generally , does,
and that it seemed to quiet her.;
Is It any wonder that Mrs. Man
had so much to tell Mr. Man, when
he got home, that she didn't have
any time to really worry ver the
things that somebody took out of sweat shirts.

sports frocks, riding breeches,
