A Child. Christm...
A biz CQcntrT house in a lo&elr spot, ami a
little girl of ten all alone in it on Christmas
Day.
A little orphan Ctrl she was, in a black
dress, with a seriocs white face and wistful
eves. A quiet child; not accustomed to talk
much, for she hsd tired a good deal among
grown-up people who had never sought to
draw ber out, but had left her to puzalo out
all the problems of child life for herself. A
better behaved little girl never existed, and
that is perhaps whv she was left so solitary
in the big honse on Christmas Day. Three
months before this Christinas she had been
scut to a small school, and now she was homo
for her first holidays; but the lady in whose
bocse she was staying a friend of her dead
mother's who had informally adopted her
bad been summoned away to tho bedside of a
sister w ho was ill,and she could not tale littlo
Etie away with ber on such a sad journey.
Before starting, however, she had ordered her
servants to take good care of the child, a&d
this they had promised to do. Miss Kvio was
a favoiite with them all she gave so little
trouble and a as always so obedient. You had
no need to provide amusement for her; you had
only to tell her not to stir from a certain room,
and there she would remain for hours, amus
ing herself in a noisless way, and cover try
ing to call attention to herself if she were for.
gotten There were four servants in the house,
and they had not intended at first to leave tho
child alone; but William, the footman, and
Mary, the housemaid, who were brother and
sister, had received leave from their mistress
to go and spend Christmas Day with their pa.
rents in the neighboring town, provided cook,
and Susan, the parlormaid, stayed at home.
On Christmas eve, however, cook received a
pressing invitation to join some friends of her
own in the town, and in order to induce Susan
to connive at her going aay, she bogged her
to join the rarty. It was a greit temptation
to Sunn. Cook promised that there would be
very gay doings, and a young firmer who was
said to be rather sweet on Susan (though, of
course, Susan did not consider that a bit) was
to be present. And then Susan reflected that
if she ref used this treat,cook would bo grumpy
and they would both spend a sorry Christmas
together. If Evie had besn other than she
was, Susan would have refused; but she was
such a good, quiet child that there as no fear
of ber getting into any mischief. "You could
trust her by herself anywhere," said cook;
"and I rather think she likes being alone.
Even if we stopped, I don't know whit wo
could da for her, for she'd jest sit br the fire,
as she mostly does, and say nothing unless you
asked her questions; and 1 don't know mvself
bow to talk to that child, she's so seriocs
like."
"Aye, hut if missis heard of our having gone
she'd pack us off in no time'" remarked Su
san. "Miss Evie'll never tell her, rejoined cook.
She's not the one to carry tales."
"Xo, that she ain't, and missis ain't the sort
to question iier either," observed Susan. "She
den t bold much with spying."
So tho matter was settled; but Susan was a
good girl, whose heart rather smote her at the
idea of leaving the child alone. So on Christ
mas morning, whilst Evie was taking her
bread and milk in tho small parlor that was
called her schoolroom, Susan looking rather
hesitatingly at her said: "Would you mind it
very much, dear.if wc left you all by yourseir
to-day?"
"Xo. Susan." said the child, in lr nunal
mild way, and with a steadfist gaie that
showed no fear at all. "Do yon want to go
out!" "
"Me and cook hive got invited out to a party;
but we wouldn't rro it von minded it th los.t
Kt, Miss Evie, so yin mustn't be afraid to
leu ce.
"I don't mind it at all. Susan."
"But you must promise me, then, that you
won't leave the house on any account."
"Mayn't I cn to church?
"Xo, dear, you can't go to church alone, you
know. It will be for only for this once. Do
you think yen can manage to get along jost
for to-day by yourseU? We'll leave out your
dinner for you, if you don't mind having a cold
one, and well be back before tea time. You're
such a good little girl, Miss Evie, I'm sure
,-,.n 1 -V... ten
"I will behave mvself. Susan." rrnlied Evie.
seriously; and thereupon Susan kissed her and
took her to the kitchen to show her where her
dinner was, and where she would find the
match boa U light the candles ilh when it
grew uarK. And see, dear, if w e cid happen
to be a little late and von wanted venr t.s
here's the small copper kcltlo to make the
water boil; only you'll be sure to use the holder
when you lift it eff the fire. And yoall mind,
dear, won't you, and not let the fire in the par-
it ro go, ion i iry to put on much coal at
rt j i : 'i '"','s lz muc pieces pretty
v.ttu, .in win it: cccogn to Kecpu burn
ing all day."
Evie assented, paying thooghtrul attention
to all these instructions; and half-an-hour
afterwards cook and Susan, both dressed in
their beat clothes, sat out together, and tho
cuuawaa leu m sole cnarge or the house.
It was a cold, frostv mornimr. Tkr w.
snow on the ground, but tho sun shining
tnrougn me bare trees in tho park threw a
uiiuuirss on it. sianaing at tho window
of the school-room, in her black drr f
looked out cn to the prospect and saw not a
soul in the park. There were only some birds
hopping about and making stars with their
ici in me snow as mey petted for food.
Evie would have liked to threw them some
bread-crumbs, bnt she had forgotten to ask
whether she might open the wiiduws; besides,
she was so small and slight that she could
hardly have performed such a feat unassisted
she had to stand on a hassock for her chin to
. ; wlnuow-leaC. l resently she heard
the bells of the Tillage church, and wondered
whether any of the people would notice she
was not there. Then sh. took her chnrch
jervrce, and sitting down on the hearth-rug,
began to read the Lessons and Psalms of the
cay to Herself in a whispering tone. Tart of
" nai sue reau was beyond her oomprehnuicn
but she understood the story of the Babe who
had been laid in the manger, and who was
earned away by his Mother because King
Herod wanted to kill all little children. And
she understood that it was of this Babe's
birthday that all grown-up people and cbild-
"li""5 tTel7 J"r ,0 particularly good
at Chnstmas-time.
The big house was verr tilnt m ... l-
cbflil had finished reading the service, she
went and peeped out into the hall. Solitude
had no terrors for her, but it stirred her im
agination and brought quaint fancies to her
mind. Presently she crept upstairs, and
thought she would play at being mistress of
the house and entertaining in it all the people
who in her short life had ever been good to
her. ManT a smile aiul lrin r
fcJ these who had bestowed them, were tre
asured up in the child's memory, as she went
from room Jo room pretending to give orders
to a servant about getting the anartments

rcg ncspitality to her friends. Onlr there

The littlecrrhan ronT.ll.nf . . -i -
Ur her parents and her baby brother, who
had all three died at about the eime tin
years before, She had fugitive via ions, some
times ot the young mother wLo had fondled
her la her Ian. of th laW .r, r .t.-
had txsched, and of her father, who used to
alxcke her hair and call her his pel. Jut
new, though, she thought she remembered
their faces belter than nana, and at a certain
moment she paused in the middle of the big
gest roii, aa it some words out of the slum
bering echoes of the past had revived in her
nemorv. brinfinc back a scene of her infancy
in distinct colours. She fancied she ceuld
recollect a bvgono Christmas; and snatches of
something which her mother had said to her
cn that day rang faintly in her ears like music
in the far distance. She was trying to recall
tho words by thinking of their tone, as one
repeats a tune, when she was aroused by a
ring at the front door.
Evie started and wondered. Who could it
I who was calling? As quickly as her little
legs could carry her she ran downstairs, and
peeped cut of the school-room window to see
if sue could descry the person who had rung.
But there was a pettieo in front of tho house
door, and she could see nobody. She sup
posed she ooght to answer the ring, since none
of the servants were at home to do it; so she
went bravely to the door, turned the key, and
saw a man and a woman with a baby, all
three shivering with the cold.
The man and the woman looked very poor,
though they were not in rags, like tramps.
"My kind young ladr." said the woman,
curtseying, "would you please ask the good
souls in this house to let us have a morsel of
something to eat and drink, and to let us
warm ourselves a bit," for the love of God?
and a nicrry Christmas to you all."
"I am s sorry there's nobody at home,"
answered Evie.
"We've not eaten a bit all day, young lady,"
said the man in a dejected voice.
"Xot eaten all day?" echoed the child,
pityingly.
"And there's my poor baby almost dead
with cold: lock at his face, bow blue it is,"
said the woman, with tears in her eyes.
Erie's heart was wrung by the sight of so
much misery. She had given pennies to beg
gars sometimes, but had never been brought
into closer contact with them. It did not occur
to her, however, that these people were beg
gars like those whom she had relieved in the
streets. To her fanciful niiud they appeared
like the poor whom one reads of in story
books, and who knock at tho doors of the rich
or. winter days like this, and especially at
Christmas-time. So she asked the man and
the woman to come in.
"I am all alone," she said to them (and
how very small a mite she mast have ap
peared to them as she said this!) "but will
you come and warm yourselves in the school
room? And 1 think I can give you some
dinner, as they have left cut some for me?"
Tho man and tho woman followed her into
tbe school-room, and it was evident that they
were in great distress, for tho man at once sat
down near the fire and spread his handa over
tho grate, almost unable to apeak. He was
pale and haggard, as if he bad had a serious
illucss. Tho woman knelt on the hearthrug
and held her baby near to tho warmth. She
also looked ill and starving. "God bless you,
my little dear !" she faltered to Evie. "We'vo
not always been liko this obliged to beg our
bread. Dear, dear see how cold the child
was. Another hour out in that frost and he'd
have been dead."
"But ho won't dio now, will he?" asked
Evie, ftamling close to tho women and putting
euo of her hands on the child's head. "I once
had a baby-brother liko him.
"Is your mother dead, child?" asked tho
poor woman, glancing in a compassionate way
at bvie s biacK gown.
"Yes; papa and mamma are both dead."
"And they v'e left von allbv yonrself here?"
Eio explained that she was staying w ith
tier guardian, who was absent, and that the
four servants had all gono out. "But they will
be back this evening," she added.
"We shall be away before then." said the
man. "I don't suppeso thcj'd care much to
see us here.
Knowing Susan to lie a kind-hearted girl, it
did not seem likely to Evie that these poor
people would have been turned away had she
been at home; they looked so cold and hungry
that anybody would have pitied them. It was
thus Evie mused, as sho went to tho kitchen
to get the poor people something to eat.
The dinner that had been left out for her
was a slice of roast beef and a piece of cold
plum-pudding; but the joint and the pudding
from which these slices had been cut were in
the larder, which was not locked, unfortu
nately the dishes were too heavy for Evie to
lift them" by herself, so she had to go ami beg
the poor man to come and help her- He came,
but with weary steps, and timidly; not liking
to give trouble. "Tho merest bite of some.
thing will do for ns, my dear. I shoulda
like you to get scolded."
"They wont scold me when I tell them all
about it," said Evie; and soon, with the man's
assistance, the dishes had been carried into
the school-room, with a jug of beer, a loaf and
some cheese ; and a saucepan full of milk was
set boiling on the fire for the baby, who, as
Evie thonght would like something warm.
Then Evie set about lying tho cloth very
neatly. She was so busy in putting knives,
forks, and glasses in their proper places
that the woman, looking up from the fire.
bade her more than once not to take so much
irouue. nut it was no trouble to ner. A
fancy had suddenly entered her min dthat ahe
would treat the poor people exactly as if they
were her father, mother, ami baby-brother
come bacK to spend tlie I hnstraas with her.
She would play at havinc a nana and a mam.
ma axe oiner utile girls. Mtc would not
think of their clothes, but look only at their
taces, anu try to imagine that her father and
mother might have looked like that if it had
been willed that they should have been poor,
cold and hungry on earth.
Perhaps the angels who bring peace to the
Christian homes at Christinas lent themselves
to the realisation of the child's affectionate
fancy, for presently, when the baby had been
fed with tLe milk and had been warmed back
into life and rosy color; and when the poor
man and woman had also eaten, there was a
happier look upon their faces. They drew
their rtiatr. iim, fli. ftr. 1 . t
close to the poor woman, who began to speak
about her recent sorrows the death of her
eldest child, the illness of her husband and
herself, and their sojourn in a hospital They

where Iter husband hoped to find work; but
tae cow Had nipped them sadly that morning,
and they might have died on their way if they
had not found a friendly house la rt in.
Evie listened to all attentively, but wishing
with her little heart that she had a father, a
mother and a baby-brother, even though she
should havcjto wander in the cold with them.
it would bo .o nice to have a mother to whom
she could always nestle as she was nestling
.smii mis poor woman; and minting this,
Evio kept stroking the poor baby's head.
"You were very fond of your little brother,
I . "
uj uhi - aihcu uio poor woman.
"I muat have been," said Evie; "bnt I was
Tery smill then, and can hardly recollect."
"And your mamma do you remember
"Only a little a very little. I was tryin:
to think about her this morning, but I couli
not remember clearly."
Her poor heart muat have ached when ahe
had to leave you, my dear; but if she could only
see you at this moment, she would say that
you was a good little girl to have been so
kind to us. You must let me kiss yen now,
for we must 1 going, so as to reach th, work-
nouse in the town before it grows dark."
"Oh, not yet," pleaded Evie. "I want first
to mate a present to baby." She ran
to a little desk, unlocked iL and drew nni
a small bead purse, which contained all her
Tings 01 pocsei-money, about a doren shil
lings, and she pressed it into baby's' tiny.hand.
fAnd now pleaso give me a lock or his hair,"
she said. "I shall keep it and think it is my

liament actually ordered Christmas Day to be
ol-aerved u 1ir n f . . t . t- : i - . :
It came about in this way. Lords and Com
mons oraained that the last Wednesday in
every month should be kept as a fast dsy. In
1611 Christmas Day happened to fall an the
last Wednesday in December cirenmstanee of
which the Assembly of Diviners reminded par
liament, so that the dsy might be kept "as it
ought to be ;" and in obedience to their de
mand, an ordinance was published command
ing the keeping or a faat on Christmas Day.
To prohibit holiday-making was one thing, to
enforce the prohibition was another. In 1617,
as Christmas-tide drew near, certain London
ahonkeeners. wlmbsd mM .1 .
years for attempliong to ignore the festival,
procurred an order that the mil mi of London
and Westminister should prevent such "in
cenvenieecei" happening again. While Lord
Mayor Warner was deep in militia business at
vruin iK. aeandaltzed maristrate mounted blS
horse, and with the sheriff and a party of
halberdier rods to me scene ot me acueo.
Ai soon as tho halbenliers began to remove
the evergreens, "the boys of lixteen parishes,
that came hither to bo merry with their lord
mayor." set nn such a shout that the lord
mayor's astonished steed took fright, and
coursed mrougtt tne street in sucn wim lasu
ion as to upset his rider's dignity, besides
putting his bones in jeopardy, while tho de
lighted mob threw up their cars "t see my

Some of them arere seised by the halberdiers,
and sent to tho Compter for a dsy; but War

tempt to pull down the obnoxious branches,
for we are told that, failing in thai design, he
fell upon another, ho searched the city for
surreptitious pies and porridge, ransacking
pots, robbing ovens, and stripping spits, to the
great edification of the rignteoui, and the
chastisement of the wicked his own cook in
cluded, she Wing found guilty of some baby
lenith baked meats. A still more serious
hubbub was raised at Canterbury, when tho
crier had proclaimed that a market would be
held on Christmas Day. In rain the mayor
and his officers tried to quell the riot ; one
man, being struck with a cudgel by tho mayor
nimseii, KnecKCd nis worsnip uown, icanc;
his cloak and damacin: him generally.
Tbe people then moved off to High Street
and started a couple of foot-balls, while tuo
authorities endeavored to take their rriscners
to jail; tho populace, however, followed in
their wake, broke the head of tho governor of
the prison, rescued their rnends, hunted
the mayor and aldermen into their houses.
and then amused themselves by smashing tho
windows ot every one whom they knew to be
opposed to Christmas keeping. AnjOhanL
