Christmas! Th day of all days in the
oalcndar. The one day of the three hundred
and sixty-five observed by all men, religious
and worldly, Christian and Tagan, Jew and
Gentile. At least it was so observed in St.
Paul yesterday, but as there ara many men
of many minds the day was observed in a
variety of ways, each individual following
the bent of his inclination. Th morn was
ushered in by the herald eighteen hundred
odd years ago, with "Glory to God in the
highest!" and therefore, first, how did men
pay their religious obligations? The old
church, ever mindful of her duty and
sacred respond ibilities, had her clergy busily
engaged all the previous day from early
dawn to the close of day preparing her
children for the great festival"if we con
fess our sins God is faithful and just, to
forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all
unrighteousness." Hundreds of repentant
ones made a good confession, and when the
solemn toll of the bell warned that the day
of all days was about to dawn people of all
rank and conditions hastened from their
homes and out in piercingly cold air hied
them to the house of prayerthey would hail
the natal day of man's salvation as
did the angel with a "Glory to God in the
highest." At 5 o'clock the cathedral was
crowded with a devout, earnest congrega
tion of worshipersworshipers whose
hearts were made glad, at least for the time,
by the thought of the great love of the
Prince of Peace. The grand ritual of ponti
ficial mass was celebrated in all its imposing
magnificence, while th people displayed a
devotion and pious earnestness so observ
able in votaries of the old Catholic church.
The imposing effect was not a little height
ened by the splendid decorations of the high
altar and the altars in the two chapels. Aft
er mass, Father McMullen preached an elo
quent sermon upon the Holy Incarnation,
and showing the duties of all faithful chil
dren of Christ's church.
Again at 10 o'clock pontificial mass was
celebrated at the cathedral, when the sacred
edifice was again filled with devout worship

reviewed the history of Hi who laid aside
His regal dignity, but retaining His godhead,
deigned to be born of a
tvirgin, that might bring His people
to God. Th mysteries cf the divine
incarnation was a theme which should
make the hearts of all humanity rejoice and
be glad, it was one to cause serious reflection
and retrospective thought and it was one
which should prompt a renewal of vows and
obligations,and this opportunity was offered
by the church, which was ever mindful of
the welfare of its children and the care of
their immortal souls. Th provision made
for a renewal of baptismal vows was in holy
communion, to which he invited those of
the congregation who had been prepared by
confession to partake worthily. There were
upwards of 600 persons who partook of the
The congregations of the other Catholic
churches were also large. Th Church of
the Assumption, St. Mary's church, Church
of St. Louis. St. Joseph's and St. Stanis
laus, were all well attended.
THE EPISCOPAL CHTJBOHES.
Like the Catholic, the Epis
copal churches, honored the day
by enjoiuing their congregations to remem
ber that "Glory to God came before "Good
will towards men," and the church of the
Good Shepherd had its portals open to its
flock at 6:30 in the morning. Thore is no
church in the city which is doing
more good work without ostentation
than this. Th rector, the Ilev. William
Cox Pope, B. D., is an indefatigable and
zealous devotee to his calling. Th pastor
of a free chnrch, he labors in the highways
and by-ways, and his whole time and ener
gy are devoted to the spiritual care of the poor
and needy. Every day he has service, morn
ing and evening in his church, and he de
votes much of his time in visiting the sick
and the afflicted, often bringing by his time
ly ministrations, both to bodily and spiritual
wants, gleams of bright sunshine where
gloom and despair had reigned.
Christ church was splendidly decorated
for the occasion. The day is a festival in
the church, and it is becoming that the
sacred edifice put on the garb of gladness.
This church is peculiarly constructed.for im
posing effects in decoration, which the ladies
of the congregation took full advantage of.
Scrolls with appropriate texts in contrasting
colors, festoons of evergreen, and shields
with crosses of twelve varieties adorned the
walls, and the pulpit was ar
tistically entwined with evergreens.
Within the communion rails the decorations
were elaborate, and the whole chancel seemed
with verdure clad. Th services were those
usual for morning prayer, with the additional
collects and prayers ordt rtd in the rubric
for Christmas day. Th choir had prepared
special hymns and anthems suitable for the
day, which were sung with reat effectMrs.
Lamprey, Miss Haynes, Messrs. Huneman
and Buckelew forming the choir.
The Rev. W. Ten Broeck preached the
sermon from the words, "Fo God so loved
the world that he gave his only begotten son,
that whosoever believeth on Hi should not
perish, but have everlasting life." John, 3
ch., 16 v.
The sermon was based upon the idea of
Christmas being the "gift" season of the
year. God "gave" His sou, hence the prac
tice of giving at Christmas. Th custom of
Christmas presents, the preacher showed,
was as ancient as the church, and was inaug
urated with "good will towards man." Th
sermon was an interesting cne, and full of
instructive suggestions, keeping in view the
"gift" each owes to his Maker. A collection
was made in behalf of the church missions.
It was announced that the childrens' festival
will be held in the church-on Saturday
(Holy Innocents' day), at 5 o'clock in the
The decorations at St. Paul's were more
elaborate than at any other church. At the
altar rails a beautiful screen of evergreens
of excelleht design spanned the chancel.
The church was festooned with evergreens
and exotics, and the whole auditorium was
filled with rich but subdued color, the soft
light preventing the faintest approach to gar
ishnesf. The music at this church was also

exception of the House of Hope, the pastors
and congregations spending their Christmas
in the home circle.
At the House of Hop*.
Seven hundred and fifty pairs of wid ex
tended eyes. Seven hundred and fifty eager)
palpitating hearts. Seven hundred and fifty
bright faced, ruddy cheeked, merry hearted
children assembled at the House of Hope
The hour of 11 o'clock was designated as
the time to begin the Sunday sohool festival.
And at that hour the capacious church was
filled with old and young. Every seat was
occupied, and half-way up the aisles stand
ing room soon became at a premium.
The chapel schools at the Harvester
works and on Fort street, united with the
church school in the festival observances.
Each class was seated apart, the teacher
looking to the decorum of their
little pupils. Even before seated, a glimpse
bad been taken, but once in
their seats, the wide extended eyes of the
children took in and enthusiastically devour
ed the fairy scene before them.
On a temporary platform in front of the
organ-loft, a miniature forest had been
3et. tbe right a rugged rustic cottage
had been erected, with a veritable chimney,
out of which smoke could almost be seen
to issue. Forost and house
were coveied with snowit looked like snow,
so deeply and naturally had fleecy heaps and
bits of cotton been distributed around and
about. The picture was both pretty and
even realistic in artistic arrangement. "Why,
the children believed the forest had especi
ally grown there for their pleasure,it was
all like a story book to them. Their
eyes spoke forth volumes of
gladness, and eager spoken
whispers gave evidence of the general de
light. Little ones stood on tip-toes to see,
and beholding some new marvel of beauty
increased their pleasure. Immense piles of
neatly tied little boxes were discovered piled
up at the foot of the trees. Every child
reckoned on a present. Huge heaps of gold
en oranges set off and made the picture
complete against a back ground of ever
greens sprinkled with "beautiful snow."
Hush, silence, the services hegin
Every child is quickly and decorously in
Then followed a beautifully arranged rit
ual. Printed programmes of the exercises
were distributed throughout the audience,
and ready response in unison was made by
tbe hundreds of childish musical voices.
Services opened with the anthem, "Herald
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the new-born, kinjj
Peace on earth, and mercy mild.
God and sinners reconciled.
After the gleeful shout had died away,
the pastor arose and made an appropriate
and impressive prayer. Divine blessing up
on the little ones was feelingly asked in the
Then the Infant class sang a Christmas
carol very sweetly and understandingly.
A specially prepared and arranged
"Christmas Praiso Service" was pro
nounced by the pastor and respond
ed to by the children in harmony
of voice so well had they learned the lesson
Lhat it sounded like a musical rhythm.
The "Angels' Proclamation" was ne xt
sung in triumphant tones, beginning:
Hark the mighty tones sublime
Trumpet tongues of olden time.
Again pastor and schools took a the ser
vice and response.
Tbe schools thin joined in singing' "Joy
Fill the air with music sweet
Make the chain of song comnlete.
Verily, the air was filled with musio sweet
from the throats of the joyous and happy
throng of children.
"Our Pastor" now gave the children a
"talk." acquitted himself to the im
mense satisfaction of the youthful audience.
'The talk" was a good-natured one, and the
moral and instruction was conveyed in a
way to make deep impression, because not
beyond the comprehension of a Bingle
After "ou pastor's talk," the children
felt themselves a Christiau army and sung
with enthusiastic voice:
Onward Christian soldiers.
Matching as to war,
With the cross of jcstis
Going on before.
Christ the Royal Master
Leads against the foe.
Forward into battle
See, his banners go.
And with Christmas comes Santa Claas.
All of a sudden, a fat roly-poly grey whis
kered little gent pops out of "th rusted hut
in the forest." I is Santa Claus and he is
accompanied by four attendants.
Santa comes forward and greets the child
ren in urbane voice, aud recites an original
Christmas ode to the immense satisfaction
of every little hearer. Th old folks, too,
are enthused up to the occasion, and join
the children in acclamations of applause to
Santa Claus (Master Win. L. Banning.)
Christmas sure enough! Th children are
marshalled by class and pass in review be
fore old Santa Claus. Attendants are at hand,
who, under the direction of superintendent
W.B. Dean, hand each girl and boy a Christ
mas box and load them with oranges.
The festival is over, aud the children go
out chattering about the wonders they have
Seven hundred and fifty children happy
and bright. I was a sig well worth see
ing. Even the heart of an ascetic would
have been deluged with the milk of human
kindness by such a spectacle.
It is not inappropriate after making men
tion of the festival to give some account of
the Sunday schools.
The Church sahool was organized in De
cember, 1856. From it two others, the
Chapel school on Fourth street and at the
Harvester works have been organized. I
all, the schools number 750 constantly at
tending ^pupils. Th largest Sunday
school in tho Northwest, not ex
cepting any even in Chicago. An
industrious and zealous volunteer corps
of teachers are employed at all the schools.
The Bible is made easy, and a practical
course of religious instruction is given,
adapted to the minds and understanding of
the scholars. A grand and holy success
seems to have attended the church in this
field of religious effort.
The teachers, advised by the pastors, have
been zealous and untiring in their efforts to
instruct and please the children. Yesterday
the climax was reached in the most success
ful issue of the Christmas festival. Th
honor is due alike to all the teachers of the

Plates, cups and saucers, flanked by crossed

The colored, population spent their
Christmas at their snug and cosy little
church under Odd Fellow's block, where
they held a fair and church festival. Very
pretty and very cheerful did the very neat
little church look with its little tables of
little toys, contributions of needlework,
candies and fruitB its clusters of sparkling
eyed, joyous visa ged"children, its groups of
happy talking age and light hearted youth.
The little church was literally crowded with
little peoplethere were "both
young men and maidens, old
men and children," and one would
be at a loss to imagine from whence came so
many well dressed colored people. Th fait
was kept open till about half-past ten at
But large as the attendance was at the
churches, a perambulating GLOBE man
noticed in his peregrinations through the
city that the great mass of the people ob
served their Christmas at home with visiting
friends and relations or themselves visiting,
for wherever he went groups of people were
observed in social converse through the
windows of well nigh every house. Oc
casionally a sleigh or carriage would dash
past him down the street carrying its
occupants to some expectant friends. Very
few pedestrians were observed on the streets,
and the GLO BE man pursued his way in
search of items in solitude, without even the
company of old grim Seven Corners. I
was noticed that the saloons were doing but
a dull business, and from the Dayton ave
nue church to Dayton's bluff not a solitary
vehicle was met. And all day from "early
morn till dewy eve" no roistering, boister
ous hilarity was heard belching forth from
low grggeries not a single man was seen
measuring at once length and breadth of
strebt, not one disputing with a lamppost
the right of way or arguing the question
of sobriety with a hydrant. St. Paul, yes
terday, was sober,as she always isbut
yesterday rigidly sober. After 7 o'clock the
streets were a little more animated, but still
they were dull, with not so many people on
them as on a Sabbath evening after church
has begun. The places of amusement were
hardly so well patronized as on ordinary
eveningsKnauft's had just a fair number
of patrons, and the Varieties drew no more
than on any night. A few solitary individu
als lounged about the saloons and seemed
disconsolately unhappy. There was, indeed,
one man, and only one, whom the GLOBE
man encountered who had appeared to have
taken his Christmas dinner in liquid form,
and he was quietly seated upon the sidewalk
warming his hands and shins by an iron
post grumbling all the while at his wife for
not keeping a better fire in the stove. But
one swallow does not make a summer nor
one drunken man brutes of the whole com
munity, and St. Panl was sober yesterday.
Her people spent Christmas wisely and ra
tionally in true enjoyment of social Inter
One of the events of the day was the mar
riage of Mr. A. Holbrook, the well known
traveling passenger agent of the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul railway, to Miss May,
daughter of Judge J. A. Chandler, general
traffic agent of the same company. Th
marriage was celebrated at Judge Chan
dler's residence at 7 o'clock A. &., Eev. Dr.
Dana, of Plymouth church, officiating. Th
happy couple were attended by D. Palmer,
Sparta, Wis., and W. A. Chandler, St. Paul,
and the Misses Alice and Laura Chandler,
sisters of the bride The presents were rich
and numerous. Mr. and Mrs. Holbrook

Col. Allen, the popular mine host of the
Merchants, has many reasons for remember
ing the Christmas of 1878. An especial re
minder is a really splendid gold-headed
eb .ny wood cane, presented by his two sons,
his wife and niece, Miss Wilcox. On the
top of the head is engraved "A. Allen, St.
Paul, Minn.," and on four flat sideB, the
spaces between being handsomely chased,
the names of the donors"Geoige," "Ehle,"
"Lola," "Georgia." Th colonel will only
wear the cane on state occasions.

Messrs. Merriam & Wilder, received a "cent

which his services are held by his employ
ers. Mrs. Gordon and the children were
also handsomely remembered from the same

At midnight Christmas only one guest had
been extended city hospitality at the station.
This one was Dan Quinri, a resident on Jack
Bon street, near about Twelfth street. He took
in lots of liquid Christmas, and then began to
enjoy himself to the great physical discomfort
of his wife. She uttered great and loud vocal
protests against such Christmas fun, and a
policeman coming to her relief, run the old
man into quiet quarters.
YeBterday forenoon Mr. W. R. Merriam's
horse become frightened at the corner of Wa

bruised, but the driver escaped unhurt. For

cordial greeting to-morrow night.
