in kin"; of the
holidays. In tlio
r I. mid, on tlio
who go down to
and imiong tlio people of till civilized
luiuls, it is tlio ono hcason of the year
marked by a reign of honpitality, merri
ment and open heartedness. It rccalln
to the old the pleasures of youth, and
transports many an alent ono back to
hia own Uresidu and quiet homo.
In tho early annals of Now York city,
when it was Nieu Amsterdam und tho
sturdy Stuyvesant was commander in
chief; when our now crowded Broadway
was below Wall street atid known only
as plain Heero straat; when our business
throttled Maiden Inuo was T'uiatigdo
pautje "Tho Maiden's Path" whero
the red cheeked Dutch girls went to
hang their clothes; when tho meat mar
ket Win on Bowling Green, and the pres
ent City Hall park a public pasturo ont
bido the city wall, thu 24th and S3th of
December were dedicated to tit. Nich
olas, tho patron saint of tho colony. It
was his imago that constituted tho fig
urehead of thu ship that brought the
iirj-.t Dutch emigrants to Ibis hbore. It
Wits he who gave his name to tho first
church within tho walls, and whoso ben
i.ous wero most solemnly invoked iu tho
hour of trouble by all Dutchmen on land
To the Dutch boys and yirlsSt. Nich
olas was :i jolly, white bearded, little,
old man, Muokiug hi long htoniiucd
pipe, and in their fancies driving
through tho air over town and country,
oceans and deserts, heuding through
space tho hharpent of whistles to the
wonderful reindeer team that carried
tho wonderful s.leigh. Theto little.
Knickerbockers have passed siwav for
ever, but the children of today still keep
up thu devotion of tho children of fCiO
for St. Nicholas, only they now call
him .Santa. Clans. He is tho wmw friend,
tho same little, low built, chubby,
merry, mysterious ancient who loves
children of all ages apd all countries.
Tho manner in which his coming is
celebrated differs according to the habits
and associations of tho people. In the
great cities ami tho country towns, for
days ami weeks beforehand, the markets
and stores, the btreets and avenues pro
claim tho approach of tlio fete. The
whole community abandons itself to for
aging expeditions. Bundles and baskets
aro everywhere on men's shoulders and
in their hands i wagons and conches,
filling tho aisles of street caw and trun-
f.ling through tho highways in wheel
larrows. Women and children, hus
bands, bachelors and sweethearts strug
glo beneath their weight. There mo
gifts for boys and girls, presents for
men and women, and heaps of presents
for grandfathers and grandmothers.
"Old Scrooge" is there, crowding pater
familias in his endeavor to buy thu big
gest turkey and make amends for his
meanness to his bookkeeper during tho
year, while malerfamilias declares to
herself that her Christinas shall bo tho
handsomest among all tho neighbors.
Now comes Christmas ove tho fairy
time of tho little ones. And who shall
describe it? Tho old mantel, with its
row of stockings, largo and small; the
expectant looks of the youngsters us
they linger ai.mnd tho fireplace won
dering what Santa Glaus will bring; the
creeping into bed and listening, while
tho grown folks aro making merry over
their eggnog and mulled cider, for any
sign of tlio coming of tho old gentleman
down tho chimney; then, when tho
house is htill, tho mysterious movements
of the happy parents as thoy produce
tho Christmas gifts from their hiding
places and tio them up in thu most pro
voking knots; thu commotion iu the
hoithu long before dawn when the chil
dren bounce from their buda to see whnt
the King has scut them; tho chorus of
chuckles and gabble of delight as they
gather around tho bedside of the sleepy
father aiid mother and arouse every one
in tho house to display tho liberality of
tho God of gifts who shall, who can
tell tho story ot such a happy time?
By and by the bells in tho steeples call
tho good people all to church and chapel,
und away they go, Hocking through tho
btreet.t in their best clothes and with
their gayest faces. Closed stores and a
general cessatiou from labor give a Sab
bath sanctity and reserve to tho day out
side, very different from tho Christmas
echoes of tho night before. A little later
wo aro beat cd nt tho Christmas dinner,
each ono nervously impatient to attack
the heaped up viands. Tho turkeys and
geeso and chickens that caused such u
stuffing of baskets on Christmas ovo aro
set out stuffed in turn upon thu tables,
und soon after lots of little boys and
girls tiro in tho samo condition,
Tho feast ended, other pleasures fol
low, Tho old folks gather around tho
big fireplace- to enjoy tho outpouring of
good feeling and honest iuterohango of
affectionate attachment which abound
at this season. Thu young puoplo botrko
thenibolves to tho frolics of a sleigh
ride, whilo tho children repair perhaps
to tho neighboring hills und ponds to
try tho now Bleds and skntcs. This is
tho Christinas of the average homo cir
clo throughout tho north and west.
Tho Christmas of tho lich is also a
fairyland in which for ono day at least
nothing save tho spirit of KrisKringlo
enters tho voluptuous heaven with its
(Imminent of gas jets, its carpeted Moor,
softer than clover, its perfumed air. em

of old nnd young awaiting tho bestowal
of costly gifts.
But in the backgromulif even this
pleasant picture isauother tho families
of tho poor, tho labyrinths of wretched
homes and teeming tenement houses,
tho prisons and hospitals. They are not
forgotten. Tho rich man has spared
from his abundance that tho hard pres
sure of poverty may for the moment be
lightened, and charitable hands deal out
tho htores of good things that mako ono
