WEDNESDAY, DEC. 30,1886.
Jtulgc Gary Sustained.
he Supreme Court of this State
sustained Judge Ernest Gary's
cisi?n that Magistrates. "have
isdiction," and announced that
s reasons therefor will bo filed
er." We must confess that we
re in the outset prejudiced
against Judge Gary's decision. But
after reading his reasons we are
tisfied that they are sound, and
ay be that ilie Supreme Judges
ight not do better than adopt th?
same, with a little elaboration, as
A Christmas Reminiscence.
As tho closing days of the dying
year glide swiftly by mid the fes
tive joys of Xmas times, the jing
ling toys the blazing fireworks
the shouting children, the beam
ing countenances of the older ones,
tell of the joyful advent of the
birthday of our King. Oh bliss
ful season Oh happy hour when
the hearts of the young and old,
blend in the choral glory ol a
woild's jubilee. How sweet kind
reader, when the Xmas fires are
^Jbqjmiig low, when the silent house
holdis softly sleepiug dreaming
perhaps of th3 morrow, of Xmas
ard of Santa Clause how sweet
as you gaze on the dying embers
on the hearthstone, to fly on the
' wings of memory to the happy
days that were, to exist for awhile
in-dreamland, and to live again m
the scenes or tong ago.
21 years ago, I was a pupil of the
Georgia Institution for the blind.
The autumnal winds had died away
December's month had well ad
vanced. Already the sound of
hornp, the blaze of bonfires and
the explosion of firepoppers an
nounced the near approach of
Xmas, Eager were our anticipa
tions, subdued and many were our
Brightly dawned that Xmas Eve.
So mild the weather, you would al
most deem it spingtime. So blithe
the song of the birds, so genial the
merry suubeams. But oh! the
odor of fruits and sweetmeats
that filled the air. What did it
mean? It we3 said that Misses G.
and K. had gone down town. It
was whispered that they had actu
ally seen Santa Claus. The day
was gone. The twilight had faded
into night when the bell called us
to payer. Cheery were the words of
Principal that night. Santa
' would leave parcels

I was told that in the past the
house was roused on Xmas morn
1-y the merry song of the girls as
they marched through the chapel
jw and corridors. On this occasion
^^1N??as to be different. It was
agree? by the members of our.or
chestra, that we would rise early,
and as 'the girls commenced their
dong, and march wo would aston
ish them by blasting forth the stir
ing strains of,."Josephine polk
er." Yes, they were to meet with a
great surprise. But did they? O
woman, even in the days of thy
childhood, how hard it is to out
I said that on the night of Xmas
ove, our principal after prayer dis
missed us to bed. The bustle of re
tiring over, in peace the house
was silent my roommates seftly
sleeping. Vainly I closed my wak
ing eyes, oblivious slumber was
to me denied. In meditations sweet
I wandered back through tho cen
turies gone. I thought on the star
of Bethlehem, that led those east
ern sages to the cradle of the in
fant blest. It seemed that the
scales had fallen from my sight
less orbs, end through the cloak of
darkness, I beheld the light. Oh
star of Bethlehem, star of hope im
mortal, tull many a weary traveler
bast thou'st guided home, Pilgrims
many and tired hast thou bidden
rest. Shine on thou glorious 9tar,
, shine on til! all the millions from
their guilt redeemed, bow the knee
hi worship to the Saviour boru.
Through Fancy's eye, I Baw the
distant plain. The blazing watch
fires and the sleeping flecks. Thc
peaceful shepc?rds meekly stand
ing by perhaps with h&avy hearts,
conversing of a Cation's wo?s. I
beard with fancy's voice the angel
choir, with harp and song to praise
attuned, the first Xmas carrol o:>
the shores cf lime, "peaceon earth,
to men good will. Glory to God in
.the highest." Thus musing, I whiled
ihe time away, till lost in eweei
forgetfulness I slept.
Long ere tho morning star h.
course had run. our slumbers end
ed by the call of Burkes, each ros<
in haste, and in haste his instru
mern grasped, and like pale spec
tres, dark and flitting, softly t<
th" chapel stole. There on th \
sta^e, the orchestra its position
took and stood like guardian sen- i
tinels of the night, on the ram 1
parts of some fort besieged. Scare
one short hour had passed, when
hark, at tho door ? sudden crash.
The beating drum, the jingi in;
tambourine the merry shouting o.
tho girls, all told of our secre!
known. As suddenly our orches
tra blasted, but right onward came j
the girls through the chapel, ]
round and round the corridors, 5
they_weuded their triumphal way-; ?I
?appy rivalry amia the crashing
aring chaos of the merry "Jcee
>hine," the drains, the tambou
rines the banjos, ray pic?lo was
aeari above the din. Xever had I
so played before, never snail I BO
play again. Amid 'Le chaotic
morning jubilee, the voice of
Burkes raug ont. From attic to
deepest cellar its echoes raug. It
sounded as the yell of the pursu
ing huntsman, it sounded like the
Onward roare 1 the mirthful con
test on witt joyous outcry rushed
those merry girls. Right lustily wt;
souuded the "Josephine" till tho
voice of a herald proclaimed a
truce. "To the basement, to the
basement. Santa Claus has beeu
and left parcels for one and for
all." With tumultuous joy. we
hurried to the basement, where
each from the hand of Miss K a
package neat received. On open
ing there were fruits and sweet
meats found. In each was there a
present, Toys for the children,
for the older ones handkerchiefs,
ties, and things too long to men
tion here. Forth we sallid to re
ceive the greeting of the rising
suu, and to exhilerate in the play
ground broad, nor returned till the
clanging bell announced a break
fast waiting. Patient reader, 'tis
not mine that morning feast to de
scribe ; suffice to say 'twas au of
fering of hearts tender and true,
their names why mention here?
Not now must thou with me that
feast enjoy. 'Twas for us children,
uot for the?. In mirthful converse
and with happy be*arts, digestions
best of aids, we ate, till hunger
well^appeased, the breakfast hour
High was the day advanced, al
most to noon, when as we children
exulting o'er our Xmas toys, bask
ing in the sunshine of that mild
December day, the school bell
rang, but not to school it called.
Each in the r-chool-room on his ac
customed beuch wes seated, Mr.
W. between th*? folding doors.
"You are here said he to look in
the cove of Fortuuatus old."
Round the prize-boxes were hand
ed a present to each was given be

So onward sped thoso happv
hours, 3ach day its sports, each
uight its merry games-. With joy
ous hearts, with golden deeds re
plete, the week r?.led by, the Vid
year passed away. But lo, the tire
is out the spell is broken, the. al
luring phantom ?one, the beard
less youth of long ago, is now a
man in the strugling arena of life.
