We think wc have justly earned this
reputation and we wish to thank you for your
liberal patronage this year. There are only a few
days left and we propose to make these interesting for you. The remnant of our China
Siock will be sold regardless of cost. See the
big  table   up  stairs  and   take   your   pick   for
Just Half Price For Cash
this should clear it up pretty fast,    You will find
some very dainty pieces.
The Brass is pretty well cleaned up but
their are a number of good pieces left and
the prices are  awaydown.   Just imagine
A pair of solid Brass Candle Sticks for $1.00
We  have been complemented repeatedly
on our stock of Dolls
Not an Old One In the Place
and the prices are as low as you can  buy them
any place in Canada—quality considered.
Have you seen our line of Hemp Leather
Books for 65 cts. each, packed in an individual
box.    Every book carries individuality,
A Manicure Set  For 50c.
This is a record breaker and we have them
—You can't get thc same article anywhere in
the Kootcnays for less than $1.00. We have thorn
as high as $20.00
Come in and Sec Look for yourself. Seeing is believing, and you are under no obligation
to buy. We want your judgment and wili be
satisfied with the verdict
During this season of the year SOME STORES NEGLECT

aspects of our work, under the super*

by Mr. ti. VV, Patmore. The Kp-

young people, and is a source ol
strength to the churcli. The Ladles

ever worked with; Mrs. (i. Powell is
president this year; the ladies have
just bad a very successful bazaar.
They have, ilunm, the year, put additional furnishings in the parsonage,
paid lhe laves nn all the church
property, paid for lhe larger pa-rl of
tbe renovations of the church, and
wilt probably be talking about a
pipe organ very soon. The treasurer reports a good balance In the

The choir, of whieli Mr. Racklyeft i>
the leader, has been loyal to the
church and pastor, and will give i
fine programme on Christmas night.
The ladies of the congregation now
remove their hats during the sermon

appreciated by the large majority ol
those who attend the services, and
particularly by the pastor. The

Baptist Church
Wi- of the Baptist church close this
year ol our Lord, 1910, deeply grateful for the divine blessing upon us.
There have been losses; but there
have been substantial gains to our
working forces. Our workers are
well organized; and, while busy
everyone of them, have devoted themselves generously to the regular ami
special calls of the cause in meeting
our share of uplifting service iu the
community. In common with mo.-t
other churches- we have had out
problems. The only people withoui
a problem an* the dead. We find the
solution in the love of Christ,
through a living faith iu Him and in
a loyal service fur Him. All the
departments of activity, the Bihle
school, tbe Philethea and Baraea
dubs, the Young People's l'nion, the
Mission Circle, the choir, the church
executive, committees, etc.. bave
done noble work and a work lhat as
a whole shows a distinct and gratifying advance. Out of the recent
speeial evangelistic efforts there has
issued a quiet hut deepening work ol

The Ladles' Aid society has this

history, ami almost every depart

The average attendance at Sunday
Bchool is considerably iu advance of
last year. Arrangements have been
made for the purchase of a new library for the school.
At thc beginning uf the year an
important departure was inaugurated
in Introducing the system ol duplex
envelopes, by which both the current
revenue ami mission fund are raised
hy weekly contribution, thus becoming abreust with thc most modern
methods in church work. The system lias proved eminently success
fui.
In October Knox church, in cooperation with the general assembly's committee on evangelism, and
with other churches of the city, c
ducted a ten days campaign of isvan-
gelism under the leadership ol one
of the ablest preachers in Canada,
Kev. it. l-:. Knowles, of Oalt, Ont.
This wus financially successful and
after meeting local expenses $100
were forwarded lo tbe committee.
The cam pa i uu was not without good
religious results.
The church has been fortunate in
securing the services of a talented
organist ami choir master .n ff. D

A vessel steaming against a strong
current may be passing through the
water at good speed and yet making
only little progress.
With Chrisl church parish for the
year tho situation has been somewhat such as that of a vessel steam
ing against an adverse current.
Tlie tide of emigration from tbe
parish has been heavy; and, whal
with the    additions to   tlie member
(if communicants alone about forty
marked a most substantial growth
and advancement, has beeu in a large
degree ollset by removals.
of communicants alone about forty
have been transferred to other parishes.
The Sunday school has also suffered
from removals, but still shows pro
gress.
There is now a full staff of teachers interested in their work—earnest
aud zealous ia their teaching.
The parish is greatly in need of a
building of suitable proportions for a
parish hall, and to be also used for
the Sunday school.
The need is felt for a larger church
building. Tlie present building has,
for some time past, been tar tot
small.
It occurs that at ordinary services
people go away after coming to the
door, not rinding room to be seated
comfortably.
At the greater festivals the need is
very marked, for when extra seats
to the limit that the law will allow
have been placed, there is still not
sufficient seating capacity lor those
who come to worship.
Tin* interior of the nuve of Unchurch has been brightened by a
liberal use of varnish.
During the year a new organ has
been furnished, swect-tom-d und with
pleasing combinations, About one-
half oi ibe cost, of the new Instrument has been already met
The choir has been increased in
numbers, even beyond the capacity ui
the choir seats of the nave of the
church.
In the matter of finance, the vol
uutary contributions of tlie people
have been sullieient to meet all cur
rent expenses. The debt on the rectory is being reduced mouth by
month.
It Is purposed to improve the cemetery considerably the coming summer. Funds are in band for the
purpose. ,
The Women's Guild and the Young
People's Guild are both in active

A HANDSOME   CHRISTMAS BOX.
The groat advantage of the purchase of Canadian government annuities for their children should appeal
to all parents, fm the annual payments are so small that provision for
their future may bo made with little,
if any, present .sacrifice. Kor example, an annuity of Slfin payable at
110 may be secured for a boy who
was fi lasl, birthday for an annual
payment of only $-1.7-5", or less than
ten cents n week, or for a total sum
paid in of $201.25, In the event of
tbe death of the child hefoie lu; was
sixty, all llie money that had been
paid fu Willi three per tent compound
interest would ln> refunded lo his
heirs. When the boy arrived at an
age when he was darning for himself,
he could cany his own contract to
completion at a rate far below what
he could have obtained at In. then
age.
ll Is Ihe custom nf many parents
to spend on Iheir children at Christmas time amounts which al 0 tlio I
times of the year they feel Ihey could
not alloiil.'iiiiil loo frequently are lhe
purchases made ol no lasting or permanent bciiolll Would ii not he a
better plan to start each child ou
the roml to ihe purchase of a Canadian government annuity, and continue the "box" overy Christmas until he was able to carry It for himself? The child if ho lived would
remember with gratitude Santa
Claus1 visits.
The following extract from a letter
received from the manager of one of
Canada's leading Insurance companies
shows whal he thinks of the annuities proposition.
"In discussing lhe system of government annuities with my
friends from time to time I have
always frankly slated thai in my
opinion the benefits offered for the
rates charged are exceedingly liberal,
and that 1 do not know of any institution whieli could possibly afford to
offer terms so advantageous. If the
general working population of Canada were able to realize the favorable
basis on which annuities could be secured from thc government, there
would bo very few among the thrifty
and thoughtful who would not taki
advantage thereof."
Information as to how thc purchasi
may be made and of lhe cost at any
age will be supplied you at the post
office, or by the Superintendent o!
Annuities, Ottawa, Ont.

Once again it becomes lhu pleasant
duty of the Herald to extend to nil
its readers the compliments of the
season. Very heartily aud very sincerely can the Herald, on this occasion, express its hope that. this
Christum..tide, will prove a period ui
unalloyed happiness tu its large and
rapidly increasing circle of friends.
The pa.s;t twelve months have had
their setbacks, it is true, hut ou thc
whole bright days have out numbered
tbe dutl and we firmly believe, that
in common with the great majority
u( our readers, we have good reason
tu enter whole heaileillv into ilu
Christmas festivities.

cases of poverty, requiring special at
tention at this festive season, linn

we may say that there is very tilth
in tbe nature of actual poverty in
this city and district Some few
cases tbat have been reported in Hi

Christmas Offerings
Cranbrook Merchants have Excelled Themselves in the
Quantity and Quality of Goods Stocked for
Christmas-Tide
Tin* Herald has had so much to say
recently regarding the stocks ami
Christmas preparations made by
Cranbrook merchant!, that it seems
almost a work ot superfluity to
again \\o over the ground ami attempt to tell at all in detail the
wonderful extent and variety ol
wares iiftered hy local merchants tbis
Christmas tide. However, il is ono
of seasonable duties of the papers lu
record the showings nloitg ilits Iim*
und the Herald man spent several
hours very pleasantly yesterday visit
ing the stores and discussing Willi
merchant.*! their slocks ami tlie
Christmas trade generally.
Certainly, if somewhat burdened
with facts, lu* bud nothing tu rum
plain of in the matter of cheery wel
come. In every place uf business j
visited, and no Herald advertiser was
overlooked, he found nothing bul
cheerfulness and seasonable optimism
Most of the .sture*. wen- crowded
witb shoppers and all reported good
business.
As being most convenient, ilu- first
store visited was that uf Kuwi.it!
Bros, the Jewelers. As everyone
knows, these enterprising young men
have fust moved into new quarters
and have opened up a slock Ibat
would do a far biggei (ity than
Cranbrook justice Queried us tu
which particulai line they considered
most worthy of comment, they re
plied "our diamond pendants, which
We specially slocked for the Christ j
mas trade and winch an- meeting
witb marked popular favor " Another
line ol Roods that is giving particular
satisfaction is the sterling silver deposit ware, something new in Cran
brook, very . dainty and altogethei
suitable (or Christmas presents
h'rom tht- midst of Jewels and sil
ver ware the Herald man passed into
the well equipped store of A L Me
Dermol, the liquor man, and there
found everything of a liquid nature
that could appeal tu the llnrsiv oi
the bon vivant Spanish ports and
sherries, Mr. McDermol Intimated,
found the readies! sab- at ibis time
among connoisseurs for Christmas
festivities. Munro's famous Scote!
whiskies were going si run-;.
Into the Fink Mercantile company's
storv one wandered next quite nt loss
to know where to start to tell of the
special Christmas oflenm-.s, however.
Webb's Christmas puddings were re
cognized with fond recollections
allium*, the thousand and one olbei
dainties, a glance was given al ilu
fine assortment of chinawarc and
then a move made into Mr Mc
Sweyn's department, where every
thing tbat ean delight the hearts ol
men and boys in the personal ornn
mentation line was lavishly display
ed. Oue of the tastiest Chiislina*-
oflerings here displayed was tlie coin
lunation case of braces, ties, tiandkei
Chiefs, etc., inst as useful ami ap
propnate a Christmas nn as auv
mere man could wish for Upstair*
in tbe furniture department one's
lancy was caught hy tlie ladies' sew
ing .tables and tlie man's smoking
stands, as suitable gifts
On   then    tu the    Beattie Murph)
•.tore, where again om*   was   almost
couluNed   by the   multitude and var
ii-ty of    Christmas    offerings     The
tleattie Murphy people make a    spec
iallty of Christmas gifts, and      this
year their selection eicels all    prov
ious    efforts.     In brass ware      lb
showing is very fine      Another spec
ial feature is the display of Rapgacl
Tuck Christmas hooks and cards, ih
bcsl of   their    kind publrshed ami i
almost endless- variety.     Tlie decora
tioas m this and in Kink's store are
worthy ol special mention
From tbe Ileattie-Murphv store i ■
the 0, 0, B. is but a I tep, and there
one found a varied slock of men's
furnishings, chlnaware, furniture,
etc. The chief articles tn the line ol
Christmas gilts being found among
their furniture stock.

ments nl Christian folk lore, and tin
Btorj   ts this:
l.ong ago, in the days when those
easi 11 ii shepherds watching theli
flocks in the fields hy niuht, saw tlie
glorj in Ihr heavens and heard the
Angel's song, there lived in llothlc
hem a little shopheril maiden nam. il
Madelon, and she heard, as others
did, ni' ilu> 11 ende .Mother and the
Wondrous Babe, whom thc shepherds
bad found humbly boused in a stable
and longed lo see the Christ-Child
for herself,
Hut Madelon had no gift to carry
to ihe mnngcr-thronc, and felt that
without this slit: hud no excuse for
going, and when the Maui came with
their offerings of gold, trankln-jcnso
and myrrh, she followed them longingly In the very door, and stood
WlthOUl weeping because she bad only her love und worship lo bring tn
thn shrine. Then suddenly there ap
poantd hefoie her one of the glorious
crowd ol angels who had sung to
thc   ..hepberds    on    that   wondrous
hinh-mght, and pitying her distress,
he stooped down and showed her
beautiful (lowers in full bloom qc-
math the snow al her feet. Not
gold or frankincense or myrrh, he
said, was au oiler ing more meet fm
ihe Babe of Bethlehem than those
pure winter roses, and Madelon gatli
t-red them with .iov and made her
offering to the Christ-Child, her
heart overflowing with love and reverence.
According to ai..-i..i .■ u-rsion of the
legend, the angel look the little
maiden by the hand and led her out
into llic sttnllght which shone round
them as a blase *>t glory, nnd she
saw how the most lore!) flowers had
suddenly covered tht* earth, banishing
the barrenness ol winter, and in n
moment her arms were full af pure
white roses, which ever afterwards
srere known as Christmas roses
Only a legend, perhaps, hut significant ol fact, tor study at this first
glorious Christtnasttde, tho Wrest
blossoms sprang up amid the winter
snows of the old world, the sign o! a
new birth,  and      the earth  was filled
«iih a gracious Presence whose in-
tliiciin- another beautiful "Id tradi
lion seeks to express thus:
When Christ wns born, the "sur
leaped in lhe heavens,*' and lhe stars
aioiinil it danced for Joy. A wondrous spirit of peace and healing
stole into lhe hear! nf mountain and
forest, so thai even Hie withered and
mtten tree stumps stood up straight
and healthy again on the green hill
side. Klowers i:.erywben: starred
lhe grass, while ftom upland nnd
forest, rose incense avert as The
myrrh which lhe Magi offered at
the shrine of lhe Christ-Chi Id. Birds
poured out their ioy in song, nnd
everything in nature gave thanks to
the Great God.
This also is bul un otd folk tale,
but like the story of the shepherd-
maiden nud the Christmas roses, it
comes straight from tho heart of
humanity and enshrines a great
truth. A new Spirit, indeed, camo
into the heart of the World with the
(lift of the Babe of Christmas, the
spirit of loving nnd giving, nnd it bus
remained ever since, prompting young
and otd alike lo bring their gifts al
the time ol tho Nativity, whether
Ihey he gold, frankincense or myrrh.
or fair Christmas roses gathered by
Hie wayside, not, only to make offerings meet at the manger*throne,
hul lo bring joy into all the little
world within their reach
CHRISTMAS TOYS
In selecting toys for tbe children's
Christinas, remember they should be
such us     to     suggest    action,     und
i bring the imagination into play, ns
it Is the child who plays, not      the
' toy, and imagination is the soul of
the play.     The best toys are    those
j which set the mind to work, and givi
the little brain scope for expansion.
This is one ol the strongest recom*
meiidations for the simpler toys.
The wonderful mechanical toys sold
in tlte shops are complete in them
selves, and leave the child nothing
lo do but to wind them up and start
them going. In this ease, it is tbe
toy that plays, not the child. Children soon weary of having nothing lo
do, and, losing interest In the mo
notonous repetitions, the little inquisitive mind sell about investigating
the internal mechanism, greatly to
the damage ot the toy, which is soon
ruined and thrown away, while the
child turns for amusement to Ihe old
toys that are so hopelessly undone
that everything they are supposed
to do must come from 'he pla>
spirit in the child.
Irrigation Requisite
It-' KAST    KOOTKNAY   DISTRICT
IS TO KILL MARKET REQUIREMENTS
Owing to absence from town and
pressure of business Government
Agent .7, K* Armstrong, was unable-
to reply to the Herald's request to*-
a statement from him in time for
publication in the last issue, hut his
brief review of conditions and outlets' for the future has since come
to hand, and ti will be note-: Mis:
Mr. Armstrong draws attention Iii a
matter of very grave Importance i"
this district, if uttletneilt i-. to .'"
encouraged on the best line.-, Mr.
Armstrong says:
"The progress which Cranbrook is
making is apparent from the Increase
in business in the provincial government office. When Hie office was moved from Donald to Fort Steele In 1897
there were only 1*1 surveyed 1*>*s hi
the district* There an* now 1808.
It was then supposed lhat all tbe
good land had been granted to the
settlers then in the district and to
the C.P.R., and jet 8".t pre-empt ions
have been granted sin.v and thousands of acres hnvo been sold by the
crown. There is still a large area
of land held under limber license.*:, or
under reserve, which is eminently fit
for cultivation and which will gradually become open for entry. There
are other large tracts whieli are only
fit for growing timber,
these, if well conserved,
will he a source of constant
served, will be a source of constant
revenue and will afiord employment
to many men        What we most need
are comprehensive schemes '•*: irrigating this land. \ ceetafn propor
Hon is already irrigated hv small
systems, each individual running 'ii*i
own ditches, and one nr two sy.1 terns
on a large scale have been begui
but these will not supply one tenth •■■
the land which can be cultivated wl'.'i
profit. our soil is our greatest asset. We have a market within oui
limits which can absorb twenty times the amount wc now produce. Can
we get this soil ready for lhe let

Christmas goods,    made a most   attractive apptar-inir
The  principal    officers of thi- firm,

From 8 o'clock until 11 p.in.,

attendants busy, Upwards ol si\
huodrcd persons passed in uml oui
during the evening, all delighted with
tin- kindliness of   tin- reception    and
l
with tin- i;ruiid showing af goods in
all departments.
President -l. P. Kink, Secretary-
Treasurer ... I. Paterson and Directors li .1 McSweyn and W. I). Laidlaw were ki-pt very much on the go
all the evening, looking after the
w ants        nf their numerous

There is nu complaint so humiliating and tiresome as stomach complaint. The reason so many people
suffer with their stomach is because
they overwork it anil do not give it
a tonic.
MI-O-NA Tablets will tone the
stomach and speedily remove thc disagreeable belching (gas on tbe stomach) sour taste uud foul breath. Dizziness, biliousness and headache all
disappear when you begin to ta'
Mi-o-na.
MI-O-NA is guaranteed by The

spect, tlie Kink guarantee of quality
has heen amply tested and has been
found above par. Kuch member of
the firm is an expert in Ms particular branch ami to all comers courteous treatment is uu invariable rule.
The progress the linn lias made in
the four years of its existence is
characteristic of the growth of Cranhrook.
Whatever of good fortune has come
to the Fink Mercantile company has
been well earned by undeviating attention to public requirements and
absolutely straight dealing with their
large clientele. With the recent addition, the Kink Mercantile store is
mil only one nf the largest and best
appointed in the interior, but it
boasts of conveniences not equalled in
many of the larger departmental
stores throughout the west. Notably
in this regard is the ladies rest room
an institution which will prove of
the utmost comfort to the ladies of
Cranhrook and particularly, to shoppers from out of town.
Their guests of Monday evening
will join heartily with thc Herald in
wishing the Kink Mercantile company-
all the compliments of thc season
and the hest of luck during the New-
Year.

KKKP YOUR DOLLARS AT HOME
If you spend a dollar in your own
town, part ot il. assuming that ynu
are engaged in business, finds a path
back to your Individual coders. II
vou send a dollar tn other sections,
uil ol it is apt to stay there. You
have depleted to that extent your
community's working capital.
A stream ol money flows daily
from    llritisn      Columbia     into tlir
United States. This, ol course, has
u weakening cflcct upon local finanee
and commerce. Thn outgo means
less capital here tor business.
...lOaen of us whose fortunes depend
upon those o( British Columbia- owes
it to himself to exert an Influence
toward keeping more nf this money
wberf It will stimulate our own Industries-     It you are making a aut
chase and there is little choice he j
twecn the Roods or articles, let yaur
decision bo in favor ol the product
which is adding to the home wealth,
ratlin than to that of manufacturersl
at a distance, You may regard as!
unimportant your own Influence In
this matter ol buying, feeling that
yuu are only an individual among
many thousands, hut you can help.
There ore great manufacturing possibilities in British Columbia awl de
velopment means, of course, trigger

and more money Tor all who arc In

In the development of Uie lumber

the future ol the InduMrj in British

also assure a much more rapid development than was realized in Ihi

Hritish Columbia's resources i*
standing timber. taken iu all threi
aspects of quality, quantity and
price, defy competition. \s iu Washington, the Douglas fir is thc mosl
important tree <jii the southern por
tion nf the coast. It frequently <\
ceeds two hundred and fifty feel li

diameter. In general, however. >
runs from three to six feet in din
meter and cuts from one hundred !■
two hundred lineal feet "f logs, in
quality of wood It resembles thc
southern yellow pine, but, of course,
gives ininli large! dimensions am) n
much larger proportion ol clear lumber.
Next to the iir in importance is the
giant arbor vltac, nr red cedar. Ii
reaches a height of about one hundred
and seventy feet, anil averages h
to six feet in diameter, though <o
slonally much larger. Already it
supplies about seventj per rent uf
the shingles consumed in Canada ami
the United States
The spruce, which replaces the
Douglas fir on the northern coast,
is at least equal to the hesl spruce
elsewhere for pulp purposes, and »ti
account nf its large si/e. gives a
very imuh larger proportion *>i char

The lumber consumption <-r thc world

east of the mountains, is by far the
greater lumber market, consuming, In
fact, more than all the rest ->f the
world combined Nor has 'his enormous demand shown an) tendency
to decrease with advancing prices; on
the contrary, it hns more than kept

indlcate n per capita consumption in

A DICKENS PARTY FOR CHILDREN
At which Dickens Centenary Testimonial Stamps
Could be sold
This is the season of Christmas
[ilirties—the season of happiness, of
■500(1 cheer, of merriment—of Dick-
.•iis. It is lhe season, par eXCfll-
lonco, nf kooiI children, of happy
children, of merry children--why lint
of Dickens children? Why nm a
Ilickens Christmas party, at whiL-h
tin* Dickens Centenary Testimonial
Stamp could be sold'' Why not a
brilliantly lighted roomful of Vv-k
wick*; nod Wellers, Little Nells and
Hull, VardeOS, of .Jinnies and MUmv-
licrs, of Saln-y (..amp*; und Betsy
Trot woods, nit engaged tn .1 good
cause? Kor what a gallery of pic-
tnresquo human oddities emanated
trom that wonderful brain! 'I ■*
were done on hehalf if anyoody else,
we ean almost hear the <'ulco of :li-'
great-hearted novelist -.ayln-i:
"What an idea—what a capital
idea! A charming, provo-Klu**;. satisfactory idea! Oh, perfectly i.alis-
fai.tiiry—very!" And Ahen b*' sees
the card ai" invitation, with what
pride his face lights up! •
Mr. Samuel Pickwick
requests the pleasuie of
Master Timothy Cratchit's Company
to a Christmas Party
on   Tuesday,   the 27th of December,
1910.
.Master Timothy ('ratchet indeed!
Or:
Miss Eleanor Trent
requests the pleasure ot
Master Oliver Twist's Company,
etc.
Who would—who could, at U'-ast   at
first—recognize    Miss Eleanor Trent
as   our old,   dear,     pathetic friend,
Little Nell?
Such a party as we have in our
mind's eye will probably come ofi in
London on a very large scale next
year, or at the beginning ot 1*913,
when the Albert Hall will be filled
with thousands of children in Ho.'s
Immir, tinder the auspice.; of thc
Centenary Testimonial Ci^imittee-
ITow splendid Dickens wns at describing parties! Kor, ns he wrote
himself, "It is good to be children
sometimes, and never better than at
Christmas, when its mighty Founder
was a child Himself."
"There was first a game at blind-
man's bluff. Ot course there was.
And I no more believe Topper was
really blind than I believe he had
eyes in his hoots. my opinion is
that it was a don*: thing between
him and Srrogge's nephew, and that
the f.host of Christmas Present
knew it. The way he went after
that plump sister in the lace tucker
was an outrage 00 the credulity of
human nature. Knocking over thc
Ore-Irons, tumbling over the chairs,
bumping against the piano, smothering himself among the curtains—
wherever she went, there went he!
lie always knew where the plump
Sister was. lie wouldn't catch anyone else. It you had fallen up
against him tas some of them did)
OQ purpose, he would have made a
feint ot endeavoring to seize you,
which would baVO been an affront to
your understanding, and would tu-
stantly have sidled of! in the direction ,•[ the plump sister. She oft«n
cried out that it wasn't fair, and it
really was not. Hut when at last be
caught hei—when, in spite of all her
ifllccn rustlings and her rapid flutter
ing*-: nasi him, he gni hi-r into a corner whence there was no escape, then
bli conduct was the most execrable.
For his pretending not to know her,
his protending that it was necessary
;" touch lu-r head-dress, and further
tn assure himself of her identity by
pressing n certain ring upon her finger and a certain chain ahout her
neck, was vile, monstrous! No
doubt she told him her opinion of it
when, another blind man being in ot
flee, they were so \ery confidential
together behind the curtains."
It is not difficult to dress the ehar
inters of Dickens. Not only were
they all described minutely by theli
author, hut no author was ever bup-
pn-r than Dickens in bis illustrators.
\s each character first appeared before the public, so they continue
down to the present day, from poor
Seymour seventy-five years ago to
the luteal portrayer, Mr. Harry
Purnlss,
And how particular was Dickens as
to his illustrators! We arc told
that on oue occasion the artist drew
no fewer than tweoty-threc Mr.
Dombeys before one could be found to
suit. For the author had all his
characters clearly in his mind';, eye,
from the crown of their bats to the
soles of their boots. He knew exactly how they brushed their hair
ami tied their cravats, and what was
the color ot their waistcoats or their
petticoats.
Which is your favorite Dickens
character? "1 ean often tell," remarked Lord Houghton, "a man's
own character by hearing his favor
ite characters in fiction." A most
diverting list might be compiled ol
the characters from Dickens which
eminent persons have selected us
their favorite. We know that Lord
I'almerstoti thought Sam Weller was
Dickens' high-water mark,  tbat   tbe
late Lord Salisbury never wearied ol
Sal re) Gamp, that Mr Chamberlain
most rejoices In Wllkins Micawbor.
In fact, if one looks through biographies published for 'tie last fifty
years, one Is almosi sure to como
across references to thi biographer's
literary favorites, and especially to
the characters ol Dlckcn
"One ot the godlike things ahout
Dickens," writes Mr. Chesterton, "is
bis quality, his quail tj as such, the
enormous output, thc incredible tc
cundity ol his Invention. I have
said not one ol us could have Invented Mr Quppy, Hut even II we
could have stolen Mi (iuppy from
Dickens we have still lo confront thc
fact that Dickens would have been
able to invent anothei quite Incon
ceivahle character to lake Ills place.
Perhaps we could have created Mr,
fluppv. but the effort would certainly
have exhausted us; we should be ever
afterwards wheeled ahout in a h
chair ai Bournemouth."
Dear old—poor old Toots!—"possessed of the gruffest of voices and
the shrillest of minds; sticking ornamental pins Into his shirt and keep
ing a ring in his waistcoat pocket to
put on   by   stealth. constantly
tailing in love ou   sight with nursemaids who had   no Idea of his existence.   .   .   a great overgrown cherub 1
who had   sat   up   aloft    much lo.
long."
How one recalls the few lines b\
which several of the immortal chat
h-'teis first mad;' their bow before .1
waiting world' There was Pick
wick, with his bald hern and circular
spectacles; also "U'.iv Itahts and
gaiters which, had Jt'.y I'.dtU'ri at1
ordinary man, might have passed
without observation, hut wiii-.'h when|
Pickwick clothed tliem-il we may
use the expression—Inspired Involuntary awe ami respect," Hut Pick
wick is gradually descrihed; he eoir.es
upon us in atl his beauty and lievc
rolence by degrees, not like Aided
.tingle, of whom we are presented In
stantly with a pen portrait:
"He was about th** middle height,
hut the thinness nf his body nnd the
length ol his legs gave him the   appearance of being   much taller.    Mu
green   coat   had been a smart d.c.*s
garment in the days of shallow-tails,
hut had   evidently   in   those   times
adorned a   much shorter man     than
thc stranger, for tho soiled and fried
sleeves     scarcely    reached      to   his
wrists.     It was buttoned closely up
to his chin, at   the Imminent hazard 1
of   splitting   his back; and    an old {
stock,    without     a Vestige of shirt
collar,    ornamented   his neck      Mis.
scanty black shiny trousers displayed,
here and     there those shiny patches
which bespeak long service, and wen I
strapped very tightly over a pair of j
patched and  mended shoes, as  if   toi
conceal the     dirty   white stockings, j
which   were     nevertheless distinctly
visible      His long, black hair escaped
in negligent waves from beneath eacli
side of his old   plnchcd-up hat,   and;
glimpses of his hare wrist might   be
observed,   between ihe tops of      Lis,
gloves   and    thc    culls ot his coat-
sleeves     His face was thin and haggard, but    an   Indescribable   air   ol i
jaunty   impudence    and perfect self [
pnsucssian pervaded thc whole man "
Or take this pen-portrait ol the in
Imltable Dick Swiveller:
"His attire was not remarkable for|
the nicest arrangemeitt,     h consist
ed of a brown   body   coat   with    al
great many brass    buttons up      thr'
front and   only   one behind, a bright '
check handkerchief, a plaid waist
coat, soiled white trousers, and a
very limp hat, worn with thc wrong
side foremost, to hide a hole 111 ihe
brim The breast of his coat was
ornamented with an outside pocket,
from whieli there peeped forth the
cleanest end of a very large and '/cry
ill-favored handkerchief, his dirty
wristbands were pulled down as far
as possible, and ostentatiously folded
back over his cuffs; he displayed no
gloves, and carried a yellow tune
having at the top a bone hand With
the semblance of a ring on its little
finger and a black hall iu its grasp."
Can one ever forget the description
of Mrs. (lamp? "She was a fat old
woman, this Mrs. Gamp, vith a
husky voice and n moist eye, which
she had a remarkable power ot taming up and only showing the white
of. Having very little neck, it cost
her some trouble to look over herself, if one ay say so, at those to
whom she talked. She wore a very
rusty black gown, rather tho worse
for snuff, and a shawl and bonnet to
correspond. In these dilapidated articles of dress she had, on principle,
arrayed herself time out of mind on
such occasions as the present, tc;
this at once exprc-sscd a decent
amount of veneration tor the deceased, and invited the next of kin to
present her with a trcshcr suit ot
weeds—an appeal so frequently successful thut the very fetch and ghost
ot Mrs. Gamp, bonnet and ,ui. Might,
be seen hanging up any hour in the
day in at least a dozen of the secondhand clothes shops ahout do.bint,
The fare of Mrs. Gamp—the uo-tt in
particular—was somewhat    ed     mid
swollen, and it was difficult '•>    	
joy her society without becoming
conscious of a smell of spirits."
lu her juvenile impersonator this
kind of spirits would be dispensed
with in favor of spirits of the annual
sort, of which children have au
abundance.
Of Mr Pecksniff we are told: "You
tanked over a very low fence of
white cravat (whereof no man had'
i'ver beheld the tie. for he fastened it
behind), and there it lay, a valley !-e-
tween two jutting heights of collar,
serene nnd whiskerless heforc you. Jt
seemed to say, on thc part of Mr.
Pecksniff, 'There is no deception,
ladies and gentlemen, all is peace; a
holy calm pervades me." f-*n did his
hair, just grizzled with an irou-grcy,
whirh was all brushed off his tore-
head and stood holt upright, or
slightly drooped in kindred action
with his heavy eyelids. So did his
person, which was sleek, though free
from corpulency. So did his man.
ner, whicn was soft and oity. In .1
word, even bis plain black suit, ami
state of widower, and dangling
double eyeglass, all tended to the
same purpose, and cried aloud: "He-
hold the moral Pecksniff!' "
Would you have selected .Simon
Tappcrtlt as your favorite* And yet
no less a person than Bret Harte
thought and said that Simon Tappcrtlt was a masterpiece, a frequent quotation, from Simon wof often on his lips:
"My bleeding country calls me and
I go!"
We are told by his creator thnt
Mr. Simon Tapperit was "an old-
fashioned, thin-faced, sleek-haired,
sharp-nosed, small-eyed little fellow,
very little more than five teet high,
and thoroughly convinced in his own
mind that  he   was above th** middle

which, in knee-breeches, were perfect
curiosities ol   littleness,   he was en
raptured to a  degree amounting   t<.
enthusiasm.    He also had some ma-
j jestic, shadowy ideas, which had nev
11-1  been quite fathomed by his   mosl
j intimate friends, concerning the pow
' er of his eye.     Indeed, he hud    hern
! known to no so far as to boast thai
I In* could utterly quell and subdue the
haughtiest  beauty   by a simple pro
I cess   which   he   termed    'eyeing hn

Then Wilkins Mlcawbei— what a delightful figure for a fancy dress
party! The immortal Micawher—
"a stoiitisb, middle-aged person, in a
hrown surtout and black tights and
shoes, with no more hair upon his
head (which was a large one and
very shining) than there is upon au
egg, and with a very extensive face,
which he turned full upon me. Ills
clothes were shabby, but he had ,111
important shirt-collar on. lie car
rled a jaunty sort of stick, with n
largo pair of rusty tassels to it, aud
ii quizzing-glass nung outside his
coat—tor ornament, as 1 afterwards
found, as he very seldom looked
through it, and couldn't see anything
when he did."
How many stoutlsh little hoys
would like lo go attired as Wilkins
Micawher! Can you not notice Mr.
Micawher with a portfolio of Dickens
stamps under his arm offering thi-in

"I'nder the impression, sir, that

mind's eye we can see quite a gallery
of corpulence In the range of liis
novels A do/en readily occur to us
which it would never do (or a thin
little hoy lo impersonate. There are
Pickwick and Tracy Tupman, the Eat
Hoy and the elder Weller, Humble,
Vincent Crummies, the Chceryble
brothers, John Will*t, Gabriel Var-
den, Captain Cuttle, Dr. Hllmber,
and many, many more equally well
known. Not that there are not n
lot of attenuated characters, too,
as, for instance. Sam Weller,
Jlhgle, Snodgrass, Winkle, Newman
Noggs, Tom Pinch, Sampson Brass,
and so on. (Juilp is probably the
most repulsive character In all Dickens's works, with Squeers and
Uriah Keep close behind. To think
ot an attractive, pink-cheeked little
Hill Stkcfl is almost a -paradox, and
yet we mny be sure Hill wilt not go

He had a brown hat on his head, and
a dirty Belcher handkerchief round
his neck, with the long frayed ends
of which he smeared tin* beer from
his face as he spoke, disclosing, when
he had done so, a broad, heavy coun

growth, and two scowling eyes; one
of them displayed various parti-col

Finally, there are the Dickens girls
—the kind ol girls Dickens himself
most admired—Dora, Little Km'ly,
Little Dorrlt, Delia Kilter, Dolly
Varden, M/zic Hexham and Ada gf
"Hleak House," and Rosa Hud of
''Edwin Proud," all sweet, engaging
little creatures, and childlike in their

his thanks for the v.iii and apprccia
