An excerpt from this historic item:
''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.''

Ornaments Made with Norway Spruce Materials
''There are two ways of considering a Norway spruce: One way is to stand off and admire its noble outline, as it rears itself, a pagoda of living green, against the skjy, with its story of fringed branches, its beautiful, long, pendent cones, and its delicate hue seeming dark because of the rich masses of foliage. 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 plung into the tree, intent upon freeing our brackets, easels, and what-nots from the concealing embrace of its long, sweeping branches.''
