Front Cover of the Delineator Magazine, November 1900

WE PRESENT this number to subscribers with every confidence that it will be pronounced the finest issue of the year. We have every reason to be pleased with the enthusiastic appreciation that has come to the magazine from all sides, but, although much improved, we are not yet satisfied that it has reached the limit of excellence possible to a publication that, while broadening in scope, has certain definite aims and objects ; viz., to be helpful to all women ; to lighten the cares of the dressmaker, the housewife and the mother by describing and discussing the latest and best processes in the world of dress and in household management ; and to raise the standard of family life. The plans made for future numbers aim to make every department of the book stronger and better.

A glance at the contents on this page will show the wide variety of tastes that are considered. Comment on the various articles is unnecessary ; special attention
only is called to the introduction of London and Paris letters—one by Mrs. Aria, the highest authority in England, and the other by Mrs. John Van Vorst, a prominent member of the fashionable American Colony in Paris.

THE DECEMBER DELINEATOR. — The next issue of THE DELINEATOR will naturally show the holiday spirit, anticipating the actual period long enough to let the suggestions it contains be of service to those who are looking for advice on the most difficult of all problems—what to give. In the article on Holiday Fancy-Work many novelties will be illustrated and described.

In the series of the Pageants of Cities will appear a most interesting and appropriate paper on the Christmas festivities at Bethlehem, written by the Rev. 0. S. Schilling, for ten years a resident of the Holy Land.

Although the Bahamas lie close to the shores of North America and their genial Winter climate attracts many visitors, they are comparatively little known. Mrs. Starr writes most entertainingly of scenes in and about Nassau, the capital, and some striking illustrations are given.

Two remarkable stories—as diverse as two stories can well be having the common subject of the keeping of the festival--will be included in the number. Beulah Marie Dix describes with spirit a Christmas in Colonial New England ; while Paul Laurence Dunbar tells with peculiar humor the experiences of the members of a colored congregation in New York, under the title of One Christmas at Shiloh.

From Fanny J. Crosby, the blind hymn writer, comes The Angels' Song, a beautiful tribute to the Nativity, finely illustrated by J. Allen St. John ; and another artistic page shows two songs by Frank Dempster Sherman which are to be set to music.

There will be also the second installment of the Browning love-story, Dr. Murray's article on Children, a series of entertaining pastimes by Miss Beard, Special Christmas Cookery, Candy Making, Dressing the Tree, etc., etc., with all the usual departments. It will be a notable number.

The subscription price of THE DELINEATOR is ONE DOLLAR for an entire year ; Single Copies are FIFTEEN CENTS.
