The balls may be handed to each one, or may be skillfully tossed by a per- son of ready wit who can invent a funny and pleasing monologue suitable to the occasion virile disposing of the pile. .Some recitations about Christmas and snow, given by children, may precede this; also music. The so called "orange now so popular at fairs, suggest another way of giving small presents. Orange trees (probably hired from some florist) are hung with false fruit, i. e., different sized balls covered orange colored stuff. When opened they are found to contain various small articles. The idea, is a good one to adopt in arranging Christmas presents. Another way to present gifts is to have them all put in a certain place, neatly wrapped and tied. A bright member of the family, to whom alone has been confided the names of those who are to receive the packages, marks them with apt quotations, but no names. When the quotations are read at the dis tribution, each person must know from the description whether the gift belongs to him or not. No one else is to indicate who is meant. If any fail to recognize themselves tLe packages are laid aside A BIG STOCKING OP GIFTS. until all the rest have been presented, when the quotations are reid again. Many good selections are to be found in books of quotation, in Shakespeare, and in miscellaneous birthday books. Again, a big stocking might be pre- pared to hold all gifts of ordinary sizj Let it be a family stocking, and let some one member of the circle delivei its contents, package by package, with appropriate remarks. The stocking may be made of muslin striped in bright col- ors. It may be hung from a chandelier or from the mantelpiece.

"Be careful to advertise in some shape or said Barnum not long ago, "because it is evident that if a man has ever so good an article for sale and no- body knows it, it will bring him no re- turn. The whole philosophy of life is, first sow, then reap. This principle ap- plies to all kinds of business, and to nothing more eminently than to adver- tising. If a man has a really good article there is no way in which he can reap more advantageously than by 'sowing' to the public in this way." Barnum possesses a genius for ad- vertising, not only in the newspapers and by posters, but in many other ways calculated to attract attention. Another element of success which he has, and which goes hand in hand with his faculty for advertising, has been his assurance. He has humbugged the pub- lic and then written a book recounting his methods with remarkable frankness. These methods of his more active life he did not seem to regard as anything to be ashamed of. They were to him brilliant strokes. "Preserve your he said; "it is more precious than diamonds or rubies. The most difficult thing in life is to make money dishonestly. Out prisons are full of men who attempted to follow this course. No man can be dishonest without soon being found out, and when his lack of principle is dis- covered nearly every avenue to success is closed against him forever. Strict honesty not only lies at the foundation of all success in life financially, but in t every other respect." j One who is familiar with Barnum's exhibition of the negress Joice Heth, the alleged nurse of Washington, 161 years old, his woolly horse, his Feejee mer- maid, and other manufactured cr par- tially manufactured curiosities, may be surprised at this explicit statement of the case by one who could talk so well about but Barnum was and is doubt- less strictly honest, as he interpreted the word, and although he palmed made up curiosities on the public he would have scorned to do anything beyond what he regarded mere shrewdness. Barnura has never done things by de grees. He has uttered some good wordi about economy, but economy and pa- tience usually go together. Whethei Barnum has posseted these faculties o: not he has certainly declined to wait foj avenues, by which to reach the public, to open up to him. He has opened then; himself. In the days when Barntun was en deavoring to establish the American museum, and later when in the circuf business, he used to do a great deal o' advertising in the then prominent Nev York papers, The Courier and Enquirer The Times and Messenger and The Her aid. "Night after he said. ut the midnight hour and later, I crawled up these several newspaper staircases tr put in these journals some fresn and starthng announcement about my busi- ness I even did this after the editor had gone home, but the foreman in the composing room had some authority taen. and would often put the matter 1 offered in type or make an announce- ment for me."

E Hutchison, of Wichita, ]i i l> "i mentioned as d c i1 a 1 it" for United States senator to succeed the iridescent Jobp J. Ingalls, is of rather commanding and carries with a- semi-military air due to Ins training in the regular army. He is six feet in height, and weighs over 200 pounds. His face is a little on the florid order, round and full. His eyes are dark blue gray, an 1 L.b hair and mustache are brown, with a Cazen tinge. He is a very fluent talker, an 1 seems to have dipped into almost every subject in his reading. He has been his own schoolmaster alnxst entirely, having ac- quired but little more than the bare ele- ments of a school education; but is well informed on the fundamental principles of the various sciences. Col. Hutchison was born in Pitt- sylvama county, Va., April 24, 1847. His parents were not rich, and at 17 years of age he enlisted in the regular army. He was sent under Gen. Crook's command into Oregon and Idaho, where he became conspicuous among his fel- lows as an Indian fighter. He soon rose through the grades of private, eor- poral, sergeant and duty ser- geant to the rank of first sergeant, and was muster- ed out of the ser- vice in Company D, Twenty-third United States in- fantry, in 1868, as first sergeant. He then went into railroad and became a sub-contractor in building the Santa Fe road through Kansas. Later he entered the United States signal serv- ice, and received a schooling in Wash- ington, D. C., in the meteorological de- partment. From 1879 to 1882 Mr. Hutchison was in the United States cus- toms service under ex-Governor E. M. Pease as deputy collector and inspector at Galveston and Houston. In 1884, on account of ill health of himself and family, Mr. Hutchison came to Wichita and engaged in busi- ness, and has lived here ever since. He was quite successful in land speculation during the boom and before. In 1836 he was appointed on the staff of Governor Martin, with the rank of lieutenant colonel, and assisted in organizing the national guards. Col. Hutchison's poli- tics, until some eighteen months ago, were Republican, and he took an active part in politics. Since then his political views have been modified considerably. especially on the tariff. He favors service pensions and free silver coinage. He identified himself with the people's party early in the recent campaign, did some vigorous writing and made a number of speeches in support of its measures. W. E. HUTCHISOX.
