What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

ItnifIlish Holiday Cnatom Expensive Breanne of „I evs elect Plums Con- cealed In Them. The old custom of putting a three- penny bit in' the family, .plutp platidiag has developed into a very expensh e fashion. Costly jewelry and charms are now sent concealed in the heart of Christmas. puchEng, says an ante. Christmas report from London. At one place in Oxford street there are huge pyramids !.f basins fille$ with Chr!strnas plum pudd:ngs. Were a quarter of a million rich cakes will be made, chiefly for children's parties. A manager told a correspdpdent that, roughly, 82000 puddings, ave rag-, ing seven pounds each, or say 254. tons, were the usual Christmas output of plum pudd hogs.. \Mary et our customers,\ he said, \send us small toys and ornaments to be inserted in the puddings. We have several times dispatched diamond rings in this way to different parts of the country. \A year or two ago a royal sperilon- age tent us an Ornament worth $2,500, etv]th instructions to boil it in the pud- ping. Yes, it is rather a dangerous fashion. \The postage rates for plum pud- tlings are extraordinary. A seven - pound pudding, costing 7s. 6d., cent to Rhodesia, is charged Is. per pound, 'which brings the cost up to 14s.tkl., :while the rat es to !limy -Hong are only about 2s. for -11 pontolp cf pudding. \The duty of nearly 50 per cent. on • plum puddings imported -into the United States has now been abolished, and we are sending many to AmerIca.\ One firm sent no fewer than 72 tons of plum pudding to South Africa for liristmas. . WHAT SAILORS LIKE TO READ. Sea Yzarna A re Noi I. Dasnapd--ne.- teetIve and Lov• Sterilise Preferred. Down on the East river sides push- cart vender of cheap books has re- cently taken his stand. His specialty is books for the seafaring men who abound in his immediate neighbor- hood, but with considerable shrewd- ness the enterprising purveyor of \something to read for everybody,\ has chosen for his location a spot whence he can trap ferryites as well as the mariners and wayfarers. Brisk is the business being done by the street book merchant, and by far -the greatest proportion of it is with sailors. For the present he is con- fining, himself to soiled novels (with here andAthere a few religious books) at \bargain\ prices, a humble nickel purchasing any volume on the cart. Among the wares are a remnant lot of \Vanity Fair\ (complete), novelsby Daudet,Scot t, Cooper, etc., all published at prices ranging from a quarter up- ward. \No sir,\ replied the vender, to an inquirer, says the New York Times, \there is no demand for sea yarns, ex- - cept among youngsters. The sailors can tell better stories than Many in books. Anyhow, the ship folk get ' quite enough of the sea, and the read- ing matter they want on a voyage a rattling good love story or a de- tective yarn with plenty of excite- ment in it. \Sale - sailors, jtv t berfore going off on a -long voyage, buy as many as 20 books at a time, and others club to- gether and take quite a small library on board. to while away their idle hones. -- \Almost any sort of story sells well. 411 that the sailors ask is something to interest them and they don't both- er about style or the author's name. So I can sell here heaps of books that would be dead stock around Broad- way, even if I were allowed to peddle Lhere.\ C. Si. K VI IA il A. MOULTON KELLY &.
