Wives have found shoes a practical, moderate ly priced gift and one most men really .need. The easiest way to give a man shoes is with a shoe gift certifi- cate. Shoe stores and departments now furnish attractive and fes- tive Christmas certificates that ~oe can present when he comes in r a fitting. You can persona-lize his shoe gift check by filling it in your own hand-writing or by e.n- closing it in a large humorous or affectionate Christmas greeting card, Best of all, of coucse, is to put the shoes themselves undez" the tree Clmstmas morning. The saf- est course after sneaking a peek at his shoe size and width, is to his to the store where he usually buys his shoes Most men tend to .be "sticks-in-the-mud" when it comes to shoes. Christmas is your chance to put a litle style i,n his shoe wardrobe. . "American Continental" is the new look in mews shoes It feat- ures a medium-slim leather sole that closely follows the tapered shape of the upper, ending in a rounded or squared tip. Smooth oz' lightly grained leathers are pre ferred, in keeping with the styie's elegant feeling. "True brown" is the ,newest, most popular new leather color Little Tie Tac Loom Large Men's Gift Tie tacs-those little streamlined up-dated versions of grandfathers stickpin-are enjoying great popul- arity among men of all types and ages. And because the tie tac col- lections in jewelers' showcases coy er such a wide range of prices and styles, many a lucky man could find himself with several of these little charmers under his Christ- mas tree. At the top .of the raage of these tie tacs are the fine gold ones set with diamonds. In between is a simple cultured pearl a tiny gold spot and those of sniall design set with real or simulated stones. And then come the conversation piec- es, like t'he lady-bugs faithfully fashioned of fine gold and hand painted in colorful enamel. Cufflinks also have a new look this year. They are sllght]y big- ger and set discreetly with stones to lend a note of real elegance to the new style trend. Pocket. accessories such as wal- lets, lighters, cigarrette cases, poc ket knives and pen and pencil, are other ways to make a hit with a man on a Christmas list, VERY GIFTED IDEA Because women wear earrings on so many different occasions, they are a gift ,that always receiv es a special welcome. The rotund family in men's shoes, though .button shape ranks at the top of black continues to be widely worn. the list for daytime, while for ----------------- dressy wear, the upswept style is READ THE SPIRIT~ADVOCATE favored. Ideal treat for holiday callers. Dressier than plain bread but less rich than holiday cake, Prune Nut Loaf is a wonderful bet for the holiday season. With this inviting loaf tuck4d away m reserve, ~.hOU can always produce a light refreshment to grownups or ildren. Prune Nut Loaf is a compact loaf, slightly moist, and crammed full of meaty prune pieces to give it a wonderfully sunny, mellow- to-tart fruitiness. You can slice it thin and butter, for it takes the knife without crumbling. You can slice it thick and spread with cream cheese or jelly. And as a final virtue, Prune Nut Loaf is simple as can be to l~e. The ingredients are few, the directions simple.

With the West Virginia Primary Election less than five months a- way, a check at the Jefferson County Courthouse this week re- vealed that to date no candidates have announced from either ma- jor political party for nomination to any of the county offices to be filled in the coming year, But all indications point to the fact that once the New Year dawns political activity will be up with the rising sun-bringing out a drove of ca.ndidates. For in 1960 Jeffez:son County will be called on to elect two coun ty commissioners, one from Kab- letown District and one from Her pers Ferry District; a sheriff: an assessor; a prosecuting attorney: two justices of the peace from Charles Town District; and a jus- tice of the peace from Harpers Ferry District: and a justice of the peace from the other magis- terial districts where vacancies now exist if anyone wants the job a delegate to the West Virginia House of Delegates: and members of the School Board from Mid- dleway District and from Charles Town District. So much for Jefferson County! In the Sixteenth S~atc Senator ial District Jefferson Countians will have a say in electing a mem- ber of the State Senate. Incum- bent~ State Senator Ralph Bean has stated he will not seek ree- lection. Candidate For Judge And in the 23rd Judicial Circuit Jefferson Countians will have a say in electing a Judge of the Cir cult. Gray Silver, Jr., a Martins- burg attor,ney, announced for the Democratic nomination this mor- ning. In the Second Congressmnal Dis trier, Charles J. Whiston of Mor- gantown has anno'mced for the Republican ,nomination and in- cu,mbent Harley O. Staggers is e~ peered to seek renomination and reelection. " On the state-wide level Jeffer- son Countians will have a vote on the choice of a United State Senat or and a Governor. Lncumbent US Senator Jennings Randolph is presently filling out an unexpired term and is expected to seek-re- nomination. The Democratic race for the nomi,nation for Governor promise~ to be a free-for-all. Hulett C Smith, W. W. Barron, Harry Paul ey and Ralph Bean have indicated they will make the race: and it is understood that Orel J. Skeen and Milton J. Perguson are con- sidering making the race. All are Democrats. No Republicans have to date indicated any conclusive intentions. Tree Needles Outdoor Christmas lights do no harm to living evergreens if they are strung with care. Do not let the bulbs touch the needle. They may be sensitive to heat. Scorching by Christmas lights may show up next spring as brown patches. Use waterproof electrical fix- tures designed for outdoor use in decorating the tree. Hang sockets downward to keep out snow and ice, Bulbs of 15 watts are suffi, cient. Overpowering lights take away from the soft glow that a lighted tree should have to ex- press the Christmas spirit. Besides bigger bulbs may burn the need- les, Check the lights regularly dur- ing the holidays. High winds may shift them out of position. A cut Christmas tree can be used outdoors. Decorated by-the dooryard, it can be used instead of living evergreens. Frills Flatter Her in Lingerie Gifts ,Always welcome, lingerie is something every woman loves to receive-and the more, the mer- rier, Strangeley, when shopping for herself, a woman will usually sel- ect the simpler design. However, she's perfectly elated when some one gifts her with a frilly, lacy flouncy or adorably bouffant piece of l~gerie. So, lie generous!
