UNDER THE CHRISTMAS SKY.
BY HELEN M. COOKE.
Ont In the cold they hunger and shiver,
D ar little children with brave huiitn hearts;
Where is their (iod to save and deurer?
Where is tho comfort His pity imparts?
Wiapid in the folds cf comfortable clothing,
D&ir little childrc-, with sweet, tender eyes,
U.-irelora moineul, then turn away loathing.
UnJcr these wonderful, glad Christmas skies!
Under the burden of sin, and ot sorrow.
Is there a hand that is hidden, and warmf
Is thera a sun that will rise on the morrow.
Over the clouds of misfortune and storm?
Oat from the mold will thp daisies and clover,
Into iH-rfection of odor and grace.
Spring iu tlu:ir perfume, to glad the world over?
Where ii the bluom, then, for each little fac ?
Pkoud b'.rd of the barnyard, blithesome and free,
A murderous bludgeon is hovering o'er thee
A aoct-footrd urchin, a hard.iuarteu hub,
Will hit thee a rap Kith more'u a stuiTid club.
Make the most of tby time, for soon thou'lt be
And thy own precious head to the block'il be
Then gobble! and gobble! and gobble away;
Thyself will be gobbled on Christmas Day.
A rest to thy soul and pence to tby ashes;
A dinner thou'lt make and sundry cheap hashes;
A breakfast, pcrntip, and a light suptier, teo.
And then be dissolved In a thin carcass stew.
A LOUD and laughing vrclcomo to the merry Chris! -mas
All bsll with happy gladness the well-known chaut
Wc list the pealing anthem chord, we hear the mid
And love the tidings that proclaim a Christmas-tide
But there must be a melody, of putcr, deeper sound.
A rich key-note, whose echo, runs through all the
Let kiualy voices ring beneath low-root or palacc-
Fot these alone aro Christinas chimes that bless a
Wpue, " This is the baby's stocking,
That hangs In the corner here;
You never have seen her, Santa,
For sho only cameJbis year;
But she's Jutthe bl&sedest baby;
And now, before you go,
Juit cram her stockings with goodies,
From tbe top clear down to the toe."
Here's Chrisfmas let uj boldly greet him.
We may as well, for none can cheat him;
He will steal on, and silly sprinkle
The first gray hair, and first faint wrinkle.
And yet ruethinks It little matters,
What seed ot Ruin-mwa he scatters,
So that amid It we contrive
To keep Tata's beartease still alive
Within our breast.
Don't Die, Please.
The Democratic organs are contin
ually alllrraing that their party won't
die. Well nobody wants it to. It Is
as good a party as any to defeat. It
manages tp pull itself together suffi
ciently just before an election to awak
en the dormant energies of the Republi
cans and give thera all the exbilaratlon
of victory. A philosophical .sexton
once remarked.; "Sinners are useful;
they make professors feel good." Just
so the Democracy is useful. It makes
the Republicans feel good. Oh, no.
No Republican wants the Democratic
party to die quite yet. oYew York Tribune.
Washington Republic: An English
gentleman was recently convicted and
sentenced to one year's Imprisonment
for perjury in swearing that he commit
ted a certain theft of which his son was
charged in order to save his boy. ITalf
the sentence was afterward remitted on
the facts being presented to the
Dome Secretary. The contrast be
tween this father and the Indiana man
whohad .his daughter thrown Into jail,
from which she was brought forth a
corpse, for forging his name to a check
for $300, is striking. If there is any
dispute as to which of the two ia the
more worthy of heaven it might be
settled by reference to Bob Ing rsoll.
Ezra RIdlon, of Woodstock, Maine,
nei er had a physician attend him but
once In his life, and he Is now ninety
four years old; his wife Is living and
they have been married seventy-three
years. Had Mr. RIdlon refrained from
calling in the physician that one time,
he might now have been one hundred
and fll'ty years old, and married one
hundred and forty-flve years. But then
a man cannot always tell what is the
.best thing to do. Mr. R. will know
better the next time.

Once upon a time, old Scrooge sat
busy iu his counting-house. Ho conld

wheezing up and down, stampiug their

dense without that the honse3 opposite

"A merry (junstmas, uncle 1 Uod
