THE FIR TREE.
From the Gtrmnn.
Far down in tlio forest, whero tho
warm sun and tlio fresh nlr inntio a
pweot resting place, grow a pretty lit
tle fir trco; and yet it was not happy, it
wished so much to ho tall llko its com
prtnlorw, tho pines nnd firs which grow
nround it. Tlio oun shown and tho
soft air fluttered its loaves, and tho lit
tlo peasant children passed by prattling
merrily, but tho flr trco heeded them
not. As it grow it complained, "Oh,
how I wish I were as lull as tho other
trees, thon I would spread out my
branches on ovcrysldo and my top would
overlook tho wido world, I should have
tho birds building their nests on my
bouchs, and when tho wind blow I
should bow with stalely dignity llko my
tallicomponlons." Two winters pasied.
In tho autumn, as usual, tho woodcut
ters camo and cut down sovoral of tho
tallest trees, and tho young flr tree,
which was now grown to its full hoight,
shuddered as tho noble trcos foil to tho
onrth with a ciash. After tho branches
were lopped off, the trunks looked so
slondcr and bare that they could scarcely
bo recognized. Then thoy wcro placed
upon wagons and drawn by horses out of
tho forest. "Whoro woro thoy going?
What would becoino of them?" The
young flr treo wished very much to know.
So in tho spring, when tho swallows nnd
tho storks came, it asked: "Do you
know whoro those trees wcro takon?
Did vou meet them?"
Tho swallows know nothing; but tho
stork, after a llttlo reflection, nodded his
head and snld: "Yes, I think I do. I
mot sovoral now ships when I flow from
J''gyp' nnd thoy had flno masts that
sinolt like flr. I think theso must havo
been tho trees; I nssuro you they woro
utatoly, very statoly."
"Oh, how I wish I woro tall enough to
go on tho sea," said tlio flr tree. "What
is this sea and what does it look llko?"
"It would tako too much time to ex
plain," said tho stork, flying quickly
"Ilojolco in thy youth," said tho stin
boam; "rojolco in thy fresh growtli and
tho young lifo that is in thee."
And tho wind kissed tho trco and tlio
dow watered it with teais, but tho iir
treo rogardod thorn not.
Chiistmas timo drow near and many
young troos wero cut down, some oven
smaller nnd younger than tho flr trco,
who enjoyed neither rest nor peace with
longing to leavo its forest home. Theso
young trees, which woro chosen for their
beauty, kept their branches and woro
also laid on wagons drawn by horses out
of tho fore6t.
"Whero aro thoy goitig?" asked tho-
flr treo. "Thoy are not taller than I am;
indeed ono is much less; and why arc
. tho branches not cut oil? Whoro aro
''Wo know, wo know," sang tlio spar
rows. "Wo havo looked in at tho win
dows of tlio houses in tho town, and wo
know what is dono with them. Thoy
nro dressed up in tlio most splendid man
ner. Wo havo seen thorn standing in
tbo-middle of a warm room, and adorned
with all sorts of beautiful things honoy
cakes, gildod apples, playthings, and
many hundreds of witx tapers."
"And thon," nskod tho flr troo, trem
bling through all its branches, "and then
j,'Wo did not seo any moro," said tho
sparrows; "but this was onough for us."
"I wondor whether anything so bril
liant will ovor happen to me, thought
tho flr trco.
"Kojolco with us," said tho air and tho
sunlight. "Enjoy thino own brightness
in ircsn nir.
Hut tho trco would not rojoico, though
it grow tailor ovory day, and wintor and
summor its dark groon follago might bo
seen in tho forest, while passers by
would say, "What a booutlful treol"
A short timo boforo Clirlstmns tho dis
contented flr treo was the ilrst to fall.
As tho ax cut through thn stem and dl
vldcd;tho pith tho treo fell with a groan
to tho earth, conscious of pain and faint
ness, nnd forgetting all its anticipations
of happiness, in sorrow at leaving its
homo In tho forest. It know that it
should never again seo its dear old com
panions, tho trees, nor tlio little bushes
nnd manycoloicd flowers that had grown
by its sldoj perhaps not ovon tho birds.
Neither was tho journey at all pleasant.
Tho trco first recovered itsolf whllo be
ing unpacked in tho courtyard of a house,
with several othor trees; and It heard a
man say, "Wo only want ono, and this
is tlio prettiest."
Then camo two Borvants in grand
livory and carried tho flr troo into a largo
and beautiful npartmont. On tho walls
linng picnics, and near tho great stovo
Btood great china vases, with lions on tho
lids. Thero woro rooking chairs, sllkon
sofas, largo tables, covered with pictures,
books and playthings, worth a great deal
of money at loast tlio children said so.
Then tho flr trco was placed in a largo
tub, full of sand; but green balzo hung
all round It, so that no ono could seo it
was n tub, and it Btood on a very hand
some enrpot. How tho flr troo trembled!
"What was going to happon to him now?"
Somo young ladies camo, and tho ser
vants helped them to adorn tlio treo. On
ono branch thoy hung littlo bags cut out
of colorod papor, nnd each bag was fllled
with Bweatmeats; from othor branches
hung gilded apples and walnuts, m if
thoy hnd grown thero; nnd abovo, and
all round, woro hundreds of red, bluo
nnd white tapers, which woro fastened
on tho branches. Doile, exactly liko real
babies, wero placod under tho green
leaves tho treo hnd nover scon suoli
things boforo and at tho vory top was
fastened a glittering star, raado of tinsel.
Oh, it wns very beautiful.
At last tho tapers worn llghtod, and
thon what a glistening blazo of light tlio
trco presented! And now tho folding
doors wero thrown open, and u troop of
children rushed in as if thoy intended to
upsot tho trco: thoy wero followed moro
slowly by thoir elders. For a moment
tho llttlo ones stood silent with astonish
inont, and thon thoy shouted for Joy till
tho room rang, and thoy danced merrily
round tho treo, whllo ono present after
another wns taken from It.
"What aro thoy doing? Wlint will
happen noxt?" thought the flr. At Inst
the candles burnt down to tho branches
niut wero put out. Thon the children
received permission to plundur tho tteo.
Oil, how thoy rushed upon it till tho
branches cracked, and had it not boon
fastened with tho glistening star to tho
ailing it must havo been thrown down,
Tho chlldron then danced nbout with
their pretty tovs, and no ono notlcod the
lice, except tho children's maid, who
cnino and pocpnd among tho branches to
see If an npplo or a flg hnd been for
"A Btorv, a story," cried tho children,
pulling n littlo fnt man toward tho tioe.
"Now wo shall bo iu tlio green simile,"
said tho man, ns he sealod hlmRolf under
It, "nnd tho treo will havo tho pleasure
of hearing also, but I shall only velato
ono story; what shall it be? Ivedo-Avedo
or Ilumpty Dumpty, who fell down
stairs, hut soon got up nguln, ntul at Inst
married n princess?"
',IvedoAvedo,', cried some. "Ilumpty
Duninty," cried others, and thero was a
lino shouting nnd crying out. lhtt tlio
flr trco leinained quite still, and thought
to himself, "Shall I have anything to do
Willi all this?" but ho had alreadv
nmuscd them as much as they wished.
Thon tlio old man told thorn tho story of
Ilumpty Dumpty, how ho fell down Btairs
and was raised up again, nnd niairicd a
princess, And tho children clapped their
hands and cried, "Toll another, toll an
other," forthoy wanted to hoar tho stoiy
of Ivedo-Avedo; but thoy only had
Ilumpty Dumpty. Aftor this '.ho flr treo
bocnino'qulto silent and thoughtful; nover
hnd tho birdsln tho forest told such tnlosns
Huninty Dumpty, who foil down stairs,
nnd yot married a princess.
"Ah 1 yes, so it happons In tho world."
thought tho flr tree; ho believed it nil,
becauso it was rolntcd by a such a nice
man. "Ah I well," ho thorn-lit, "who
knows? perhaps I may fall down, too.
nnd marry a princess;" nnd ho looked
forward joyfully to tho next ovonlng, ox
noctlug to bo again decked out with
lights and playthings, gold nnd fiuit.
"To-morrow I will not tremblo," thought
ho; "I will enjoy all my splendor, nnd I
shnll hear tlio story of Ilumpty Duinnty
again, nnd porhap3 Ivedo-Avodc." And
tho troo remained qulot and thoughtful
nil night. In tho morning tho servants
and tho housemaid camo in. "Now,"
thought tho flr, "nil my splendor Is iro
lug to begin again." But thoy dragged
him out of tho room and upstairs to tho
garrot and throw him on tlio floor iu a
dark corner, whoro no daylight shouo,
nnd thcio thoy left him.
"What does this mean?" thought tho
trco. "What nml to do here? I can
hear nothing in a plnco llko this," and
ho leant against tho wall nnd thought
nnd thought. And he hud timo enough
to think, for days nnd nights passed and
no ono came near him, and when at hist
somo ono did come, it was only to put
away largo boxes in a corner. So the
treo was completely hidden from sielit ns
if it lia.il nover existed, "it is winter
now." thought tho trco: "tho ground is
hard and covered with snow, so that
pooplo cannot plant me. I shall ho
sheltered here, I daresay, until spring
"Squeak, squonk," said a llttlo mouse,
creeping cautiously towaid the tree; then
camo another, and thoy botli sniffed at
tho flr tree and crept between the
"Oli, it is vory cold," said tlio llttlo
mouse, "or clso wo should bo so comfort
nolo hero, shouldn't wo, you old flr tree?',
"I am not old," said tho flr trco,
"thero aro many who nro older than I
"Where do vou come from, nnd what
do you know ? ' askod tlio mlco, who
wcro full of curiosity. "Havo you seen
tho most beautiful places in tho world,
and can you toll us all about them ? and
havo you boon in tho storo-room, whero
cbcoscs Ho on tlio shelf, nnd hams hang
from tlio colling ? Ono can run about
on tallow candles thero, and go iu thin
and corao out fat."
"I know nothing of Hint place," said
tho flr trco, "butl know the wood wheio
tho sun sulncs'and tho birds sing," And
then tlio 'trco told tho little mlco all
about its youth. They had never heard
such an account iu their lives; nnd nfter
thoy had listened to it attentively, thoy
said: "What a number of things you
linvo seen I You must havo been very
One morning people cnino to clear out
tho garret, tlio boxes wcio packed away,
and tho trco was pulled out of tho corner
and thrown roughly on tlio garrot floor;
then tho servant dragged It out upon tho
stntrcase, whoro tlio daylight shone.
"Now, lifo is beginning again," said tho
trco, rejoicing in tho sunshine and fresh
air. Thon it was carried down stairs and
taken into tlio court-yard so quickly that
it forgot to think of Itsolf, and could
only look about, there was so much to bo
Tho court was closo to a garden, whore
ovcrythlng looked blooming. Fresh and
fragrant roses hung over tho llttlo pal
ings. Tlio linden trees wcro iu blossom;
wnuo too swauows now noro nnu tnero,
crying: "Twit, twit, twit, my malo is
cominc," but it was not tho flr trco thoy
raoantT "Now I shall live," cried tho
tree, joyfully, spreading out its branches;
but, afasl they wero all withered and
yellow, nnd it lay in a corner niuong
weeds and nettles. Tho star of gold pa
por still stuck In tho top, of tho trco, and
glittered in tho sunshine. In thn samo
comt-yaid two of tho merry children
wero playing who had danced round tho
tree at Christmas, nud hnd been bo
happy. Tho youngest saw tho glided
star, and ran and pulled it off tho treo.
"liOok what Is sticking to tlio ugly old
flr trco," Biild tho child treading on tlio
branches till thoy crackled under his
hoots. And tho trco saw all tho fresh,
bright flowers in tho garden, and then
looked at Itself nnd wished it had re
mained In tho dark corner of tho garret.
Then n lad camo nnd chopped tho tree
into small pieces, till a largo bundle lay
In a heap on the ground. Tho pieces
wore placed in a flro undor thd copper,
and thoy quickly blazed up brightly,
whllo tho treo sighed bo dcoply that each
sigh wns llko a littlo pistol shot. Then
tho children, who woro at play, cnmontid
seated thomsolvop in front of tlio flro,
ond looked at it, and cried, 'Top, pop."
But at oaeli "pop." which wus a deop
sigh, tho treo was thinking of n summer
day In tho forest or of somo winter night
thero, whon tho stars shono brightly,
and of Christmas evening. Now nil was
pnst; tho tree's llfo was jiast, and the
story also for all stories must como to nn

No other festival is so universally colo
brntod throughout Clnlstendom ns is
Chiistmas, nud no festival carries with it
qiiltoBUch a splilt of joyousnes flpait
from Its ownlnheicrit reasons for Joyous
Hess. Century after century poetry and
art havo been ndding to the nssoclntlons
of tho Chlrst-Ohlld's day new and benuti
ful conceptions and associations more
limn making up for tho urndttal dropping
oil of tho grosser traditions and delights
of tho Clirlstmns of our early English an
costors, when "tho mightiest alo was
broached and tho hour's hend grimly
stared" nstho "wassail cup" went round.
But if thero Is loss "wassail" Ihu an
nual fenst known ns tho Chiistmas din
ner remains nn Interesting fonturo In tho
progrntiinio of tho day's celebration.
Thero Is less novelty In modern Clirlst
mns faro than in any othor yearly feast
excopt Thanksgiving, Tho tlino-honored
mhico plo ranks flist as standard Christ
mas des'crt, although a real Ihigllsli
iilum pudding may tnko its plnco, whon
both nro nut provided. It is to tho S.tx
ons that wo nru Indebted no tho origina
tors of tlio fruity mlnco plo. Tho Saxon
kings nnd nobles always had n plo upon
their Clirlstmns tabfos, somctiinoH so
largo ns to All up tho width of tho hoard.
Tiicso woro often used as a means of pre
senting surprises in tlio way of gifts
that wero hidden underneath the crust.
To such oxress was tho mlnco plo car
ried thut Cromwell and his followers
looked with horror upon It, and tho
Scotch and English I'rosbyleilans adopted
instead what they called plum porridge,
nud f loin this plum pornilgo was grad
ually ovolved tho English plum pudding,
which to-day stauds ns tho gio.it llvnl of
tlio mlnco pic.
In place of tho Loir's bond nnd stout
sirloin wo long ago adopted that national
bird, tho turkey, which in the last fow
years has given way in somo households
to tho goose.
For tho housekeeper it is nn ngrccnblo
fact that tho preparation for the Christ
mas dinner can bo made so long in ad
vnnco. Tho apples for tho mlnco pies,
for Instance, may early bo selected for
pooling, and tho fatted heifer killed for
sunt, and moat. This lollovos the nronn-
rations that under any circumstances will
pile up as the dny npnroahes.
A standard receipt for mince pies: Se
lect from tho round throe pounds Qf boot
It is best not to havo it fat aud boil it
in water enough to covor it. Smoked
tonguo is a valuablo Ingredient to add
with less of tho hoof. Chop flno and mix
with it throe pounds of suet, four pounds
of apples, four pounds stoned ralslns.two
pounds of currants, ono pound of citron,
n qunrter of a pound each of lemon nnd
orange pool, tho juico of four oranges and
four lemons, four pouudsor coffco suenr,
two grated nutmegs, a tcaspoonful each
of ground cloves, nllspice.rlnnmon.macc,
popper and two tnblespoonfuls of salt,
elder onough to moisten.
The plum pudding may bo inado ready
also in ndvanco and await tho Glorious
day. Hero is a receipt which cannot bo
bettered: Stono n pound of raisins and
pour on thorn a lmlf gill of brandy. Lay
on them two ounces of citron, and ono
each of candled orango nnd loinon peel
sliced, tho grated juico nnd rind of ono
ornngo and ono lemon, four ounces of
blanched almonds, a pound of currants,
n pound of suot chopped, a pound of
coffco sugar and tho interior of n baker's
loaf crumbled", mix well with grated nut
meg, a littlo cayenno and a tcaspoonful
of salt. Four ovor a gill of shorry and
set away in n cool place. Just boforo
boiling tho pudding add eight eggs and
enough sweet crenm to moisten it.
This is Miss Corson's receipt, nnd she
says: "Now let all tho young ladles of
tho houso descends nud in turn vigor
ously stir tlio fruity compound for good
luck." Butter tho water tight pudding
mold, dust with flour, and pack tho pud
ding in, allowing a couplo of inches for
tho pudding to swell. Boll orstesm for
ton Hours, and do not open tlio mold
until tho pudding is ready to serve.

WJth Aycr's Hair Vigor. Its cleanli
ness, boneflclal olloets on tho scalp, and
lasting porfiinio commend It for uni
versal toilet use. It Ittfeps tho liulr soft
nnd silken, preserves its color, prevents It
from fulling, and, if tho hair has hecorao
weak or thin, promotes a now growth.
"To rostoro tho original color of my
hnlr, whioh had turned proniaturoly
gray, I used Ayor's Hair Vigor with en
tire success. I ohoorfully testify to tho
of this preparation." Sirs. V. II. David

" I was nlUlcted somo three years with
scalp dlseaso. My hair was falling out
nnd what romalnod turned gray, I wns
induced to try Ayor's Hair Vigor, and
in a fow weeks tho dlseaso in my scilp
disappeared and my hair resumed its
origmul color." (ltov.) B. 8. Sims,

" A fow years ago I suffered tho entlro
