About as quaint and as welcome a Christmas gift as can be made for a musical friend are clips tohoid sheets of music open and in place. Gild some clothes pegs and cover the heads with ootton wool, with tightly drawn white mushn over. On this paint the face. Sew cardboard arms to the ueck and cover with pink silk sleeves, and put a frill of the same or of lace round the neck and tie a bow of baby ribbon over it. Or make a cap of lace for the head and put adeep lace cape on. If the pins are painted black and have black ïnuslin heads aud white eyes and a red dress, the effect is qiiite delightful. Or they can be dressed in cap and spectaoles like a student.
