Though according to tbe almanac yesterday was the day of the festt
vai of ihe Nativity throughout th�� civilized world, the fact of its falling on
a Sunday will cause it to be generally observed as a joyous and mirthful
occasion today. From time immemorial this great festival of the Christian
year lias always been celebrated among the English-speaking races by indulgence In various form of rejoicing and merry if not rollicking spirits
have prevailed. Among these dinner has ever been the chief social event of
Christmas day. Whether the feast began ere the morn was sped or later
than the hour when "curfew tolls the knell of parting day," it has at all
times been a glad occasion when special delicacies were spread before the
guests at the family gathering.
For the most part these delicacies have a significance peculiarly their
own. The spicy contents of the mipce pie, for instance, symbolize the gift
of gold, frankincense and myrrh ottered b ythe wise men of the east; the
plum pudding served up in its surrounding of blue Uame represents tho
I'uritan idea of tlie torments In store for those who did not agree with
tliem. Then the great loin of beef, which ls a traditional item of the day's
fare, enjoys Its distinction by virtue of the honor thrust upon it by the
merry King Charles, who in an impulsive moment proclaimed the joint Sir
At King George's home at Sandringham. strict adherence to old English
customs is always observed at Christ mastide. The boar's head, the merit
and importance of which has earned for it quite a considerable literature of its own, is a greal feature of the'royal table. Yet it no longer makes
Its entry to the sound of a nourish of trumpets from the heralds, music
from the minstrels, nor tlie servitor's chant of a merry ditty. The roast
cygnets, too, are still served, but t.ie royal peacock "drest in hys plumage," has gone with the old-time por ridge and frumenty.
In more humble homes the Christmas dinner is served in good old
English style, just as it was in the time so pleasntly and vividly recorded
hy Washington Irving in hls sketch book. We find tbe very soul of the
Christmas spirit expressed in Dickens. Though there is a pleasant savour
of joyous festivity at the home of old Mr. Wardle, where they raised such
"lovely pork," and the hearts of the immortal Pickwick and his companions were warmed with the home-made cherry brandy; many of us have
found real pleasure in the simply homeliness of the Christmas festival as
celebrated at Bob Cratchit's, so beautifully depicted in the "Christmas
Caml." Who has not entered fully into the spirit of childish joy expressed
by the little Cratchits, who "stuffed spoons into tlieir mouths lest they
should shriek for goose," and appreciated Tiny Tim's opinion that is was a
wonderfully pudding." There are more conventional Christmas feats related by other classic romancers, such as Jane Austen. George Elliot,
Thackeray and Anthony Trollope. But all are permeated by the same
subtle spirit of festive joy. though perha; s somewhat more restrained in
expression than in the humble homes of Dickens' People.

Washington, Dec, 25.���Two events
of tlie past ten days substantially
have furthered a movement for inter
national peace, in the opinion of those
who have been prominent in that
movement. The flrst was the announcement that Andrew Carnegie
had placed more than $10,000,000 in
the hands of trustees to be applied to
that end. The second was a meeting
of the American Association for the
Judicial Settlement of Disputes between Nations.
Mr. Carnegie's gift for the peace of
the world formed the basis of remarks of speakers at the association
meeting, and that It met with hearty
approval goes without saying. Mr.
Carnegie himself delivered an address
in advocacy of the move to settle international disputes Judicially. Other
speakers discussed various phases of
the peace movement, and tliose who
attended the convention agreed that
no important part of the subject was
untouched during the three-day session, y,

dlviduals and collectively, is to bring
about the formation of a court by international agreement, to which all
disputes between nations shall be referred for settlement. It is pointed
out that The Hague tribunal while of
value i.s limited seriously by the fact
that it is a court of arbitration. Being such, its decisions are compromises on many questions raised. It establishes no precedents, or at, least
precedents are not followed, as they
would be in a regularly organized and
permanent court. Therefore, members of the association believe the
real solution of the problem of settling international disputes without
war lies in the creation of a permanent international court.
Last week's meeting was devoted
entirely to discussion, and no resolutions were offered or even suggested.

slons very closely stated that there
was practically agreement upon the
following five points under which the
court could operate, which could have
been embodied in resolutions, if any
had been proposed:
1. The court a development from
previous methods, in order to form a
more perfect arrangement. Other
peaceful methods to remain and to be
To   Respect   All   Laws.
2. The court to be a court of law
and equity applj ing principles of
equity and pood conscience and having leyard to all systems of law and
the precedents under all systems. All
questions, except those of pure policy,
to be submitted.
3. Institution of an international
court is of such importance that it
should be constituted by such states
as desire it, leaving it open to access
to other powers or to tlieir future ad- j
���I. inasmuch as the supreme court
of the United States has served as a
supreme court for the states composing the American Union, and has re-
[eatedly decided controversies between them, the origin, history and
practical working of that court should
be carefully studied.
5. The practicability of creating a
sentiment in . eliools, colleges and universities, in favor of the settlement of
international disputes by means other than war.
Too Many Governments.
Members of the association, such as
Governor-elect Simeon E. Baldwin, of
Connecticut, stated that they did not
expect that all nations would subscribe to the principles set forth
above, nor that the movement would
bear fruit in one or two, or even ten
years. One of the great difficulties in
effecting an agreement as to the
court would be recognition of all gov-
ernments of the world In its membership, it was understood among
members of the association that a
number of leading governments aro
willing to appoint representatives to
the court, but to have all nations represented in it would make it un-
wieldly. Therefore, the most feasible
plan for forming the court would be
to have the leading governments represented in its permanent, membership, with the minor powers represented ln rotation, as may be agreed
Leading members of the association
say that with an agreement among
several great powers and formation of
a court for settlement of disputes between them, other nations would be
bound to appoint members and to
bind themselves to obey its decisions,
in order that great saving of treasure
and human life might be effected.

Buffalo Bill Shot and Killed His Last
Oklahoma, Dec. 21.���Col. William
"F. Cody, "Buffalo Bill," who is visiting with Major Cordon Lillie, "Pawnee Bill," on the latter's buffalo ranch
near this city, shot and killed the last
buffalo of his historic career during
an early morning hunt today.
The Lillie ranch contains five hundred acres, nnd at the present time
150 buffalo, the herd being recently
augmented by a shipment from the
Austin Corbin ranch in New Hampshire.
For some time an unruly old buffalo
bull has been maltreating the   other
animals, and Major Lillie determined
to kill liim for a barbecue feast to be
yiven in honor of Col. Cody and his
party of friends from the east.   "Buffalo Bill" was given the distinction of
bunting down and shooting the bull.
He was accompanied by all the members of the party, together with num-]
erous Pawnee and Osage Indians, and'
executed the death sentence with one
shot.   The dead bull was immediately
skinned, cut up and barbecued by tbe
assembled Indians, wbo, later In the

.Monday evening, Mrs. Celia Lippman
asked the district attorney's office for
the arrest of her neighbor and one
time friend, Antonio Kyder, a trainer
of animals.
Ryder, according to -Airs. Lippman,
became enraged at the death of two
valuable dogs which he was training
and accused her of poisoning tliem.
When she resented his accusations,
she charges that he deliberately
loosed the monkeys and ordersrd them
to climb in through the windows and
scamper over her house.
"Are these animals so tra'ned that
they will encroach on the property of
neighbors when Ryder so orders," she
was asked.
"They are," Mrs. Lippman replied.
"Their intelligence is nothing short

The team included His Majesty and
an eleven captained by M. Cannon,
the famous jockey. The former is
credited with having possessed one
of the most expensive bats in existence, the blade being of walnut and
the bat being mounted in silver. A
peculiarity with regard to tlie king's
favorite bat, by the way, lies in the
fact that high up on tlie blade on

Other German scientists who have
considered Prof. Hauser's plan for a
"fixed North German type" assert the
whole idea is based on a wrong interpretation of the laws of nature. Ii
recently pointed out hy Major Charles
E. Woodruff, of the l'nited .t.ttes

environments are precisely as they

The attendance of delegates at tha
general assembly has been approximately BS follows: 1906, 325; 1907,
332; 1908, 333; 1909, 321, 1910, 340.
The largest vote polled was 253, in
1910. As there are sure to be some
delegates absent when the vote is
taken, and some present who wi 1 no.
vote at all, we may expect that the
total vote polled on this question in
any of tlie next two or three assemblies will not exceed 300 even if the
attendance of delegates is 350. A vote
of 200 for an 100 against in the lilll
assembly would make this, and be an
increase of more than 10 per cent, in
tlie vote for union and only 50 per
cent, in the vote against it, over the
vote of 1910. If in the assembly of
1912 the opi onents can again make an
increase of 60 per cent over their vote
of 1911 and draw fo supporters of

A:i "office boy to millionaire" career has been that of George W. Per-
kira, who has just resigned a partnership in the great banking house of
.)   Plerpont Morgan & Co.
One often hears the dogmatism
that a man can never grow rich work-
lag for a salary. Perkins' experience
woul I seem to refute that. Perkins
loined the New York Life Insurance
company as office boy in 1879. His
salary rose thus:
1879���Offlce boy at year  $    300
.879���Clerk           1,200
1886���Cashier          1,500
1.887���Solicitor           3,600
'.888���Agency director   15,000
'.893���Third vice-president   20,000
1890���Increased  pay  to     25,000
1899���Second vice-president .. 30,000
1901���Salary Increased to .... 76,000
It was in tills year that he became
i partner in Morgan and Co. With
that firm he Is said to have made
about $800,000 a year as his share of
the profits.
But it was ln Wall street speculation that he scored his great money-
making triumphs.
A man, who knows George W. Perkins well, states that he was one of
'he most expert money makers in the
firm of J. P. Morgan and company,
Made Twenty Million.
"You can safely say," said his
friend, "that Mr. Perkins made no less
than $7,000,000 bulling U. S. Steel
stock, and that he has won $20,000,-
000 from the market in the ten years
he has been with Morgan. He was a
shrewd trader, and at times he plunged in wholesale style. I bave known
him to carry 600,000 shares of stock
and never turn a hair when the market went against him."
Perkins is said to have put through
a 1,000,000 share deal once, the
largest individual trade in tie history of Wall street. His broker's commissions in one year alone amounte.l |
to $300,000.
Morgan   Chagrined.
Perkins  remained  with  J.  P.  Morgan   and   company   longer  than   the
financial community expected.
There were persistent rumors after
the insurance Investigation that Mr.
Morgan was much chagrined over the
disclosures then made, ; nd it was
freely stated that Mr. Perkins wou'.d 1
sever bis connection with the house.
Mr. Perkins' reputation for cleverness is greater than his popularity
among financiers. Tbe desirability of
having as partners men generally
liked has, of late years, been frankly
recognized by Mr. Morgan. It is well
understood in financial circles that
the esteem In which Henry P. Davison was held was a factor in inducing Mr. Morgan to select him as a
member of the firm, while the two
new members, President Potter, of
the Chemical National Hank, and
Vice-President Lamont, cf the First
National Bank, are also popular in
the financial world.
Perkins says he now purposes de-1
voting himself to the promotion of |
profit-sharing, a scheme for industrial
efficiency which he has operated most i
successfully with the In ernational I

the undersigned, and endoi j. Ten-
leWrcons.ruc.ion of two ISO cubic
New York, Dec. 25.���Unless thieves
who stole all the gold crowns and
partly finished sets of teeth from the
offlce of Dr. S. R. Mlshkln, a Harlem
dentist, are caught quickly and their
bootv recovered, it is probable that
about 100 New Yorkers will confine
themselves to the soup and oyster
courses of dinner.
Burglars picked the lock on the
dentist's offlce door and walked away
with practically everything of value
the place contained. Besides a considerable amount of gold, about 100
gold crowns and pieces of bridge
work, most of which practically were
completed, were gone.
The dentltst's loss is about $1000,
while hls customers are out almost
three times that amount.
A fool there was, and he made a gift,
(Even as you or 1)
lie bought it with taste and care and
(For a lady his friends thought rather
And when he gave it, the lady sniffed,
(Even as you or 1)
Oh, the Judgment and taste, and time
we waste
On the gifts at Christmastide;
Which we give to the lady who Isn't
(And now we know she could never
be pleased
And never be satisfied).
A fool there was, and he gave    his
(Even as you or 1)
For a necklace of pearls without    a
(And it didn't the least suit the lady's
And she never thanked him a single
(Even as you or I)
Oh. the chink we lose and the think
we lose,
On the things we buy with pride,
To  give  to the  lady  who    never  Is
(And now we know she can never be
And never be satisfied).
The fool was fleeced to hls last red
(Even as you or I)
She threw him aside, when his gold
was spent,
(And nobody cared where the    lady
And the fool gave way to loud lament,
(Even as you or I)
And it wasn't the loss, and it wasn't
the dross,
The reason that same fool cried;
It was coming to know that she never
was pleased
(Seeing at last she could   never be
And never ho satisfied)
