'had fallen in tho
night, so thatupon
the morning of tho
25th of December,
1002. tho broad
common of Guil
fqrd town in the
ony, was hidden
by it, and as far as
tho cyo could bt-e
tho thick blanket
hnd been unbrok
en except by trees
and houses. Al
ner Ailing, a stern
man of nutborlty, stood at the window of
his kitchen on that morning, looking
through the little panes of wrinkled glass,
that ho might discover whether tho storm
Although a few flakes fluttered In tho
air, yet they began to glisten as the rays of
the sun that were breaking through tho
clouds fell upon them, and when Abner
perceived th.it the day would soon bo flue
bo called, saying, "Samuel! Samuel! Hear
A sinewy young man, of rosy cheeks, and
eyes that were bright because of health
and exercise, put a hugo log upon tho fire
place, and having brushed tho snow from
hla arms, v ent to Abuer that ho might ro
cche his muster's commands.
"Tho magistrate w ill como by noon, 1
think, for the storm is over. Samuel, you
must break n way through tho snow upon
the highway at onco. Take the stub
horned oxen, for the steers aro not yet
heavy enough for such a snow as this.
Having received this couunand, Samuel
put on n fur cap aud mufller, and with
heavy mitteus on Ills hands went away.
"Surely tho magistrate will not como
today," said a gentle woman, with soft
spokeu voice. "It is fifteen miles to New
Haven when tho roads uro good, but with
this snow on them it will bo as good us
twieo as far."
"Will not come, mother, did you sayf
Before tho suu was up tho magistrutu was
on liis way, I trow." .
As he spoko, Abner, spying something
that gave him interest, looked intently
across the common. At lost ho said:
"Come hero, mother, and tell me if that is
not the maid Dorothy that I see yonder in
tho doorway of Governor Leete's store."
The wifo went to tho window, and tho
sight that shu saw caused her to bo silent,
longing to see more. Across the common,
200 yards away, stood the store where the
governor of the colony, Mr. Leete, had his
business. Tho wind had dniwui the snow
against one side of it so high that, with tho
overhanging fringe from the roof, there
was formed a hank of white, broken in two
places by the faint outlines of tho win
dows. From the door, on another side,
there was thrust a heavily hooded head
that seemed to he slyly looking each way
as if fearful of discovery. At ouo moment
this headway thrust out, aud then for an
instant was withdrawn to bo again put out
a little farther.
At last tho door was opened wide and
there stepped out into tho drift tho figure
of a womun. Sho was well wrapped and
site wulked with case.
"That is Dorothy," said Mother Ailing.
"Jt is a strange performance" said Ab
ner, "Why does she como so lyly from
tho governoi'tf storo at this early hour
when tho men liavo not yet all gone out to
bleak tho roads f"
"She hus u buudlu under her cloak, I
know that Dorothy was a maid disposed to
he fond of frivolous thlugs, hut I did not
think that sho wus sly," said the mother,
"To be sly menus deceit; that is some
thing that nuibt be punished. Ah, there
is Samuel with tho oxen, He breaks the
path well. Dut now ho sees Dorothy, and
will, I trow, stop and speak to her, fori
huvo surmlsid, mother, that lie likes that
muiil too well."
"Ho docs, husband."
"So long an he is my apprentice at tho
forgo aud uu II lie shall woo no maid, least
of ull this orphan, who, I greatly feur,with
her soft wa j s, dots cause our governor to
relax his duty at times, Ho even permit
ted her to wear ft brooch upon tho Ixrd'i
day, Wo must discipline tho maid today,
Truly I will summon hcrbcfoio tho mntfl

sixty yards away fiom tho store, and thero
the young man, Samuel, met her. Ho had
seen her as she came from tho store, and
although her head was well hooded, yet
the young man knew her as well as if he
saw her ejes, that always greeted him, aud
her lips, that always" bestowed upon him a
smile. He turned the oxen, and with much
goading forced them to break a path from
the governor's house, whore tho girl lived,
to tho place where he met her. Then he
said to her:
"Why, Master Samuel?"
"Why? You know well why. You
know w hat is to happen tho day I am my
master, and so sweet do you appear this
morning, my Dorothy, that I wish it was
today, for I lm o your promise to wed me

"I will answer neither of your questions,
Master Samuel. Aro you not content to
have mo hoi?) Como, put mo on tho
sledge, for I must bo back to Mr. Leete's
The young man put his strong arms
gently about her and lifted her to the
sledge, where sho stamped tho snow from
her feet, and then, with an arm thrown
around a stake, sho held securely on, while
Samuel started tho oxen away. Then he
came aud walked by her side.
"Why did you peek so curiously from
the door a moment ago?" ho asked.
SheUnow that he was half jesting, half
curious. Sho would not nnswer him, but
she said: "Oh, Samuel, you niado mo for
get my purpose I wish you a merry
Ho looked at her perplexed, wondering
what sho meant, for ho hud never heard
these wotds before, and ho knew that no
ouo in tho town had ever repeated them.
"What do you mean by that? What
thing is this j ou wish me a merry Christ
mas? What is that?"
"It is Christmas duy, Samuel," said sho
"I do not comprehend. It is Wednes
day." "This day it was that Christ was born,
and in tho countries across tho sea it is the
habit of the people to bring it to mind by
saying as they meet, 'I wish you a merry
"Dorothy, von perplex me. Who told
"Ah I a heavenly minded man did tell
me oh, what huvolsaidl Pay no heed to
my chattering, Samuel."
She put her hand pleadingly upon his.
He perceived that sho was very thought
ful, uud thero was self icpioaoh in ther
tones as sho said, "I cannot tell you now; I
will some day, Samuel."
He madu no unswer, for ho was per
plexed, They had now como abieast tho
gato of thu governor's house. IIo lifted
her from tho sledge and lot her gently down
upon tho door step.
An hour after Samuel returned to his
home, having broken ills shuro of paths.
Ho put on his leather apron, rolled his
sleeve over his mighty arm uud blow u Are
at the forgo, and a moment later the music
of the anvil revealed his energy.
SAMUEL AND DOROTHY.
Deacon Abner went to him at once and
reproved him. "You spoko too long with
the maid, Samuel. I hade you go and
break paths, not to chatter with u frivo
lous young womun."
"Tho paths aro broken,'1
"Whut did j ou giul with tho maid about?
Tell mo. Did sho 'tell you why she weut
out into tho snow so curly?"
"Sho did not. I asked her, but sho
yvould not tell."
"Oh, there is some mystery. The maid
"Nay, muster, Dorothy is not deceitful.
A liu was never ou her lips."
"I will accuse her beforo tho magistrate,
and when tho governor returns homo I
will niirmte this thing sho hus dono."
"There Is no evil, I "in sure; hut thcie U
somo mystery. Toll me, master, whut doen
it mean when any person suys, 'I wish )ou

minded mna had told her that."
"Oh, sho Bald thutl What heavenly

"Then Ahni'r went aw ay, and with mighty

"Lie not to me," said lie, "for it will be

"I speak tho truth always or I speak not

"Then j ou w ill not deny that you were
at tho store this inoining?"
"Xo; I will not deny that."
"What had you under your cloak?"
"I cannot say."
"You v ill say. Why w ere j ou there?"
"I cannot tell."
"You said these words to Samuel, 'I wish

"Yes. I said those words."
"Well, who bado you it merry Christmas

"Aje. That is tho truth. I did not mean
to say so much, but I lio not."
"Who?" This w ord was uttered in thun
"I must not say." Sho spoko gently, but
her tones were llrm, and when ha saw that
sho would not reply ho weut uway, aud at
noon the magistrate had come.
They camo for Dorothy, and led her to
the building whence sho came so cautious

But sho refused to tell who UiU mati win
or why sho had si) ly gono to the stoto thai

ing sternly at bur, said:
"There is no doubt about It. You aro
guilty of a lie and deceit. You will be
taken hence, and you will fliat leceivo ton
lashes, and after that will bu put into tho
pillory for ono hour, that your punishment

Tho girl seemed uot to hear t hue w oi ds.
Sho put out her hund as if for stippot t, uud
when somo ono grasped it sho seemed not
to know it. It wus Samuel who had taken

room in time to hour the sentence
"Let mo take hor place. If punishment
is needed I will bare my back to the lash,

"No, Samuel;" thus Dorothy spoao.
"You cannot tako her pluco," said
"Then, let mo say hero hefoio you all

Now tho magistruto and deputies wore
uuiuied, for they had never beforo seen so
etiuugo u sight us this, so they consulted
with each other what they should do, uud
they fixed upon u punishment for tho
young mun, Ilut when they looked up to
pronounce seniuico ou him they saw nn
Dthur sight which mnu.od them even
more; for thero stood beforo them a man

white as thu snow and long, like that of a
prophet. Ills lutlr fill upon his shoulders.
Ills dress was concealed by a lung cloak,
and he hud placed one hand upon the head
of tho iiiuld, while tho other wiw uplifted
witli adinoiiitoiy uebtmu.
When he spoke his vnlcu was soft, hut
liko ouo who has authority, and his muutiur
was solemn, ami not like tho manner of
any man whom they had ever teen,
"Thin child has dono no evil," ho began.
"If thciu bo evil dcuo I did It. fur 1 taught

Ho spoke os one. iusplrcd, and as ho
stood with ono hand uplifted ho seemed
like a prophet among thrm.
"Who aro you?" tho magistrate asked
With hesitating volro
"God's sen ant, and I sny that this maid
olioll be blessed and her children shall rise
and call her blessed, hecnuso sho has this
day served him."
When the mnglstrato and tho deputies
hoard thesu wotds they spoko with one
another for si.no moments, and when they
lifted t lie ir eves again tho old man had
gone ns silently and mysteriously os he
1'or an hour tho magistrate and tho
deputies consulted together. Then tho con
stablo was commanded to tako thotdrl and
execute the sentence, but as he itpjn-oachcd
her Samuel put her behind him and faced
the officer. Ills look was tetrllile, und tho
constable knew the strength of his nun, so
they stood silently facing ouo another.
Suddenly a noiso liko tho coming of horses
wits heard. The door opened and there
entered some of tho king's officers, and
with t jicm tho governor of tho colony, Mr.
"In his majesty's name, it you know
wheio Lilwnrd Whulley and William Goffe,

"Tho lcgleldesl" said tho magisttute,
speaking in broken tones.
"Aye, tho regicides. Wo havo heard they
aro concealed here."
"Had ono a vonetablo board?"
"Ayo. William Goffe."
" 'Twits he, Ctomwell's general," stid tho
magistrate, as though spooking to himself.
" 'Twos lie," said thu deputies solemnly.
Then Abner said to tho officer, "Ono of
them was heio an hour ngo."
"But is hero no longer," said Governot
Leete, speaking for tho first time. "These
men camo to mu many days ago and asked
for shelter. As I had not then received tho
king's command to deliver them I peimlt
ted them to lie In the cellar beneath this
room. For though I nm loyal to tho king
I and my people honor Cioutvvell and his

"To tho luh?"
"And were about to administer it?"
"But tot Simuel they would already
have whipped me."
"God bo ptaised that this maid woula
have suffered tho lush rather than betray
either her woid or these persecuted and
righteous men, Goffo and Whalley. Sho
shall henceforth bo not my maid but my
daughter," said tho governor, embracing
tho giil. Then turning to the magistrate
lie said: "I will lemit her sentence, and
because it is indeed tho Chiistmas day I
will remit thesentences of all theso prison

Let all como and make merry. It shall be

on that day and' utter. And then through

began in that colony tho h-ibit, as iu other
