The slush and drizzle of the past week
have not succeeded in thinning the ranks of
gift-buyers crowding the retail shops. The
stores have been crowded all the week, and
they were specially so yesterday and last
night. The custom of making presents at
this season is of great antiquity, and it
seems to be growing in this country. From
what we can gather from history, the
custom of Christmas giving had its origin
in presents made to persons of subor
dinate position: to sirvants. Apprentices,
tradesmen, and finally to everybody of infe
rior rank ami iu less prosperous circum
stances, with or without claim for such con
sideration. It became simply a wholesale
giving, independent of merit, regard or
service, and got to be such a tax on time and
purse that private and public efforts were
put forward, and not unvailing, to
abate what had degenerated into a grave so
cial injustice and hardship. But the custom
subseives the good purpose of forming en
during social friendships. Giving, how
ever, of every kind, should be regulated by
inclination, impulse or discovery of some
fit gilt, by sympathetic association with the
gift and tho person for whom it is intended.
These conditions cannot be compelled or
evoked at stated periods. They must be
left to opportunity, choice and inspiration,
and when they are so left, giving is gracious
and grateful in the giver und to the receiver,
Christmas is a becoming time for prcscut
making, which, duly ordered, is a delicate
courtsey and a proof of affection. When
we make presents in the true spirit, there is
always a certain spontaneity in us and iu
our offering. It is only when the custom
wages professional that the motive and the
end are profaned. We should try to re
member that the value of a gift depends on
the spirit of the giver; that the sympathy
and affection which go with it outweigh all
worth of money and all parade
of purpose. Christmas is the most hallow
ed of all the holidays. Then it is the most
joyous of home festivals, the jocund day of
children, cheeriest to youth, sweetest to
lovers, dearest to parents, and most cher
ished by the aged who arc .pared to witness
tho semblance of their childhood in the
mirth and gambols, tho hilarity and hap
piuessot tho family group who 'Low in
veneration to them, as each gratefully
thanks the Giver of All for his grace and
mercy to enable the household again to
enjoy after tho old-time manner another
very serious tone of voice, which at once
created the impression that the clerks, who
arc well paid, had struck for higher wages
or that some great calamity had happened,
information concerning which ho desired to
import to Mr. Budd in all seriousness.
There were times, said he, when all men
were afflicted with trouble and railroad
men by no means escaped the
frowns of Providence. (Here he wiped
away a tear and the clerks sobbed while
Mr. Budd nervously supported himself on
the end of the counter, prepared to hear the
worst). They were men whose sympathies
were never withheld from those in distress;
whose large hearts beat warmly for their
fellowmen and who appreciated, as few-
others could, the good quality of those
under whose supervision they
performed their daily duties.
And it was but natural that being so,
the clerks assembled should dcire to
show their high appreciation of him as a
man and as an official in a substantial

brought forth from under his desk a basket
full of packages of various sizes. All eyes
were turned upon them and flas
piece after piece of the paper was removed
a very handsome silver water set. consisting
of a salver, two goblets and pitcher, were
disclosed, and placed before Mr. Budd,
who, now having entirely recovered from
his former fright but whose contenancc was
an index of genuine surprise, stated that
he was not a speech maker and was there
fore unable to say much, but heartily
thanked the generous donors.
In tho center of the salver the initials of
the following names were engraved: Jno.

and on the pitcher the follow
ing was engraved : "To Mr. and, Mrs. Budd
from the Clerks, Dec. 2.1th, 18S0."
But this was not nil. There was next
placed upon the counter a very handsome
silver butter dish, and cake stand both of
exquisite pattern which contained tho in
scription, "To Mr. and Mrs. Chellett.
from the boys, Dec. 2oth, 1880." Mr. J.
W. Wenger made a short presentation
speech to which Mr. Chellett replied in a
few well cho.U'ii word. he being too great
ly surprised to be able to say much.
Mutters having proceeded this far tho
clerks quietly withdrew leaving the two
recipients of the presents eyeing llrst each
other and then their presents in wonder
ment and with a far away look.
