Dec. 26: We have noticed in a number of the paper's accounts of white owls being killed in our latitude; it is something curious that they should be killed so far South. Two were killed some two or three years ago at Millers Island, mouth of Back River, in this State.
Jan. 1: New Year's Day -- Once again do we greet you all, "gentle" readers and most worthy friends of The Sun, with "the compliments of the season."

Dec. 26: Baltimore, in festive attire and entertaining thousands of service men and women on holiday leaves, had a merry Christmas yesterday. Christmas greens in greater profusion than recent years decorated dwellings, and many parties, private and public, were held.
Dec. 30: The backless dress is being made for both day and evening wear at the resorts. Unless the dress is for beach wear only, it has a little bolero jacket to cover the bare back when you go into the village.
