A CHRISTMAS STORY.
From the Cleveland Herald.
Where poverty a vlcllms go,
In .room with cloth sturred windows.
, And ao-lllng black and low.
A broken-hearted widow,
Teara the most bltt- wept,
As she lenneil with love anil longing
O'er hei little ones who slept.
For the coming morrow was Christmas,
And many a soul wan glad
With Joroiis expectation.
WhlleHhe was Ion.- and and,
Hhe looked at the little stocking
That hung on the blacken'd wall.
Close Ut the battered chimney.
W here HanU Claua would call.
And she knew that they were emptr
And so they would remain.
Unless the prayer ahe had olfer'd
Had not been said In vain
And who had asked the Father
In . prayer that wan slnnere.
W hen loaded with earthly sorrow
But lie loot . willing ear 1 '
Cold were the winds without
And chill the air within;
T he Poor, lone widow ahiver'd.
vr.nr..h"r '""'''"K. w '-"nt and thin.
Y.V,rh 1 edTier little darlings.
Till the midnight honr tnllevl
Then she la.d herself beside them
For the room was growing cold.
TI3,e.,7!non noDe In at the window,
o-u. "I .'" frlcnd'y beam ;
i J'-l"1" "''"W "a. ileep In slamber.
In the midst of a happy iiream
She thought that . glorious angel.
With great resplendent wings.
Came down from the heavenly regions
"" w.uuiii.iiio. oeauuiul things.
A drum for Jonny. the "soldier.
A pair ofHkatea for Fred
And for ourley-headiHl Willie
A little painted sled.
And on the rickety table
A monster turkey lay ;
With cakes, and pies, and candle-
She awoke t'was Christmas Day.
Bhetumed to her little darlings
And breathed a silent prayer-
Then looked at the batter'd chimney
And the empty stockings there.
The rickety little table -Htood
as it did before:
Then she wept In bitter anguish
When a knock came at the door.
She hastily dressed to answer.
And wondered who it might be.
For none had come to her ever,
Or knew her misery.
Perhaps It was the landlord
Come to collect the rent;
She trembled with deep emotion,
For she had not e'en a cent.
Sheopen'd the door dishearten'd.
It was not Ae who came,
But a silvery haired old lady,
Who kindly asked her name,
And If she was not the widow
With II ttle ch 1 Idren th ree,
Whostruggl'd for an existence
In the midst of poverty. '
The kind old lady enter'd,
And looked with pained surprise;
When she saw the empty stockings.
The tears came to her eyes.
My dream lias led me rightly.
And good will have been wrought,
when 1 make tbla widow happy.
Tlie kind old lady thought.
Then She gave a certain signal
To her servant In the hall,
Who brought In meats and candle.
For the stockings on the wall.
And more than the widow had dreamt of
A pair of skates for Fred,
A drum for soldier Jonny,
And for Willie a painted sled.
The rattened turkey also,
And many a useful tiling,
Money for rent, and fuel,
To last her till the spring.
Theu all were peaceful and happy.
The widow and lady too.
And our Father In Heaven blessed them
7iio dreanu had true.
