An excerpt: An exceedingly complimentary article appeared in an English magazine not long since, regarding the thrift and taste exhibited by our American girls, in turning everything to account, as well for ornament as use; and, it continued, what has hitherto by ourselves, in England, been considered as of no value, has, by American taste been converted into pretty and useful articles, which make not only pleasing additions to one s home, but provide an acceptable gift to a friend.

The other way is to approach with a knife in one hand, the corners of an upheld apron or the handle of a basket in the other, the head inclined a little on one side, and a resolute, pursed-up, I m-going-to-cut expression on the face. Alice and I often regard our Norway spruces in this last practical fashion, and when we do so, it is because, in our mind s eye, we see something hanging there besides the beautiful ling, brown cones. We see lovely easels and picture-frames, and a host of pretty objects which will be just the thing for Christmas presents. So, as resolutely as the sculptor begins to chip from his marble the fragments that are hiding his imprisoned statue, we plunge into the tree, intent upon freeing our brackets, easels, and what-nots from the concealing embrace of its long, sweeping branches.
