was the bright spot for Ishmael. When
he went out there lils aunt would, hang
his Fauntleroy suit up lu tho closet
.and give him a leather 'suit that could
not be torn and tell him to go it. He
could cat without a bib and there was
not a motto In sl.;ht. By tho time that
vacation was over he was n reol boy.
The other boys stopped calling him
"Sissy" and no longer asked him If
hin mother knew he was out. Indeed,
he up and thrashed a bullying boy who
had knocked over ono of his compan

could not have among his crowd. So,

Ishmael to go home, but he was not

he was rath 9? unhappy about it. Ile

The house lookedj sunny and pleasant

to the barn, and the malled knight had
gone down to the ironworks to bo

When Mr, Bondage went out to
Swectfleld to visit his sister and to
report upon Ishmael's progress, Aunt
Sarah had her reward. "It ls all your

"Well, brother," sold Aunt Sarah, "A

Ishmael had prospered enough in his
studies to make a picture of Sweet
field, lt hung over the mantel shelf
in the living room and under it he had
written, "The Home of tho Green
Christmas." When anyone asked him
about lt /ie would tell them how spring
once came in a wintry tlmje; bo would
say that. while Christmas comes but
once a year, lt sometimes comes twice,
and that whenever it comes it brings
good cheer ; but he was never able to
make, a picture of his Aunt Snrah that
seemed to him good enough.
