HER MEnnY CHRISTMAS.
Bhe wandered down Itivington Btreet
crying softly. Slio was hungry, find it
scorned more pitiTul for her to bo hungry
on ChristmnB ovo than It was for the
dozens of other children on Riviugton
Btrcet to ho hungry. The year licforo boo
had not only not boon hungry, but Bho had
hud n Clii istuina tree. Tho other children
had ntaays been moro or less hungry
and they had never had u Christmas tree.
She shuffled her partly baro feet alonH
on tho icy sidewalk. Snow had frozen
on what was left of tho uppers of her
shoes. Her feet wcio very cold, but sho
did not mind tho cold eo much as sho
did tho hunger, nor tho hunger bo much
as tho louclincss tho nbsenco of tho
Christmas tree and tho daddy and mam
to jump her up und down and watch tho
Eparklo in her eyes ua Bho pawl their poor
little presents. They had not been n
very interesting daddy and mam to other
people daddy had been a hod carrier
and mam used to tako in washing. But
they had been all sho had everything!
A comfortably dressed stout woman
stopped her. Tho woman was probably
a shopkeeper's wife, and had a heart
inoro or less kind. Sho had intended to
give tho gill something to eat and per
haps somo ruonoy; but she asked her if
6ho was n good girl and gave her somo
advico first of nil. This inado tho girl
angry, and sho answered her saucily.
Tho comfortable woman turned away
with a comfortablo expression of horror
on her face, and turned back into hor
comiortablo doorway. Tho girl passed
on, lonelier, hungrier, colder than be
fore. Midnight came. She had lost con
sciousness of details her loneliness, hor
hunger, her shivering had ceased to im
press her. Sho know only that she was
miserable. But still sho walked.
At 3 o'clock on Chi nas morning sho
had to stop walking, however. Sho was
on a deserted East river dock, and Bho
laid down where an eddy of wind had
left a hoft bed of snow left it for her
perhaps; and tho wind gavo its gift
without giving any advico first.
Iler oyes closed. Hor shivers ceased.
She lay very still. Sho was asleep. Sho
did not movo again until a red ray from
tho cusp wiuter suuriso touched her
Then sho sat up and gazed solemnly
at tho sunriso for a moment. Slowly her
expression became a happy one. Sho
really looked almost liko a pretty child.
Sho raised her arms and hftld them out
toward the glow. Iler lips moved.
"Daddy! mam!" sho said. "
Then sho diopped back into tho bed
given by tho wind.
The girl had a merry Christmas after

Otic December, while 1 w out on my
ranch, to much vrorlt und to be tlont Unit
It win Within ti week of GlirNtrant before
wmvero nblo to tako nuy, thought far tht
Chrlstmns tlltinor. ThuAvlntor set In Into
that Jwirntnl there und been comparatively
llttlo cold winithcr, but one day tho Ice
on tho river htid boon sufficiently strong
to ennblu un to haul up a wagon load of
flour, with enough snlt pork to last through
tho winter, und a very few cans of tinned
goodo to bo used at hpeclnl feasts. Wo lind
somo bushels of potatoes, tho heroic victors
of a struggle for existence. In which tho rest
of our garden 0Rotlile8 had succumbed to
drouth, front and grasshoppers; and we also
had somo wild plums and dried elk venison.
But no had no (rush meat, and so ono day
my foromun and I agreed to mako a hunt
on tho morrow.
Tho utr was bitterly chill; the cold had
been severe for two days, so that tho river
ice would again bear horses; It had already
frozen once and then again thawed. Be
nenth tho light covering of powdery snow
wo could reel tuo rougu grouuu like
wrluUled Iron under the horses' hoofs
There nas no uioou, but tho stars shone
brilliantly down through tho cold, clear
air, and our willing horses galloped swiftly
across tho long bottom on which tho ranch
house stood, threading their way deftly
among tho chimps of sprawling sago
brush. A mllo on we crossed tho river, the
ico cracking with noises liko pistol shots
as our bors.es picked their way gingerly
As the dawn reddened, and It became
llsht euough to see objects somo little
way oir, wo began to sit erect in our tod
dles and to scan tho hillsides sharply for
sight of feeding deer. Hitherto wo had
seen no deer tracks save inside the bulberrj
bushes by the river, nud we knew that the
deer which lived in that impenetrable jun
gle wero cunning white tails, and lu such n
place could only be hunted by tho aid of a
hound. But just before suuriso wo came
on threo lines of heart shaped footmarks
in tho snow, which showed where as many
deer bad just crossed a little plain ahead
of us. They were walking leisurely, und
from tho lay of tho land w o believed we
would And them over tho ridgo, whore
there was a brush coulio. Riding to one
side of tho trail wo topped tho little ridge
just as the sun flamed up a burning ball
of crimson beyond the suowy waste at
our backs. Almost immediately afterward
my companion leaped from his horse nud
raised his rifle, and as ho pulled tho trigger
I saw through tho twigs of a brush patch
to our left the erect, startled head of a
young black tail doo as sho turned to look
at us, her great, mulo liko ears thrown for
Tho ball broke her neck, and sho turned
a completo yomers-iult down the hill, while
a sudden smashing of underbrush told of
tho flight of her terrified companions. We
both laughed und called out "Dinnerl" as
wo spruug down toward her, and in a few
minutes sho was dressed and hung up by
the hind legs on a small asu tree.
No sooner was the tun up than a warm
west wind began to blow In our faces. The
weather bad suddenly changed, and before
an hour tho snow was beginning to thaw
and to leave p itches of bare ground on the
hillsides. We left our coats with our
horses, and struck off on foot for a group
of high buttes cut up by tho cedar canyons
and goiges in which we knew tho old
bucks loved to lie. It was noon before we
saw anything more. We lunched at a
clear spring not needing much time, for
all wo had to do was to drink a draught of
icy water and munch a strip of dried
Shortly afterward, as wo were moving
along a hillside witli silent caution, we
camo to a sheer canyon, of which tho oppo
site fuce was broken by littlo ledges grown
up with wind benten cedars. As we
peered over tho edge my companion touch
ed my arm and pointed silently to one of
tho lodges, and instantly I caught thoglint
of a buck's horns us ho lay half behind an
old tree trunk. A slight shift of position
gave mo a fair shot slanting down between
his shoulders, and, though ho struggled to
his feet, ho did not go fifty yards after re
ceiving tho bullet.
This was nil wo could carry. Leading
tho horses around, wo packed tho buck bo
hind my companion's saddle, and then rode
back by tho doe, which I put behind mino.
But we ero not destined to reach home
without a slight adventure. When we got
to tho rivor wo rodo boldly on tho ice, heed
less of tho thaw, and ubout midway there
was a sudden, tremendous crash, and men,
horses and deer were scrambling together
in the water, amid slabs of floating ico.
However, it nas shallow, nud no worse re
sults followed tli an some hard work and a
chilly bath. But what cared wo? Wowrra
returning triumphant with our Christmas
Wlion Christmas white comes In th night
And tinea tbts Uuvii, the cleba and glade,
Then dozing lads and lassies host
To reach, lu dreama, tho land of tasU
Along tho flaldx of jujubo paste,
Acrous the streams of knnonada.
A moment seems a day In dreams,
A minute for a month avails,
Until they reach that honeyed land
Where suur takes tho place of sand.
And gumdmp trees on erery hood
Are plundered by vanUla gales.
The hlllj aro made of marmalade.
And jellied Into doled and dells;
Tho peaks In taffy ridges rise
Where suda fountains Qzz to skies,
Where bushes bend with custard pics.
And treeu bauj; low with caramel.
Tho streams that leap a -down the steep
Are melting creams of frozen ico;
And thou) In rivulets begun
With "mallows" softened by the run
Into tho sponge cake valley's sun,
With UTcrythlnx that's sweet and nlca.
Then o'er the mead with eager ercod
Tho youngsters flit like tunny gleams;
But ere a single sip they take
The jelly mountain starts to quake
It topples tumbles; they awake.
And that's tho way It Is with dreams.

To spend Christmas I shall (to,
Wliero tho frost hlng reigns supremely,
And the world Is white with saow,
Not becnusa I lore the country,
But the sweet nmld of tho mill.
