Here com old Father Christmas,
With sound of fife and drums;
With mistletoe about hla brows,
80 merrily he cornea I
Ills arms are (all of all good cheer,
Ills face with laughter glows,
lie shines like any household 11 ro
Amid the cruel snows.
He U the old folks' Chris tress;
lie warms their hearts like wine,
He thaws their winter Into spring,
And makes their faces shine.
Hurrah for Father Christmas 1
King all the merry bells I
And bring the grandslrcs all around
To hear the fate he ttlls.
Hero comes the Christmas Angel,
So gentle and to calm,
As sottly as tlio falling flakes,
He comes with fluto and palm.
All In a cloud of glory,
As once upon U10 plain,
To shepherd bova In Jcwry,l
ne brings good news again.
He Is the young folks' Christmas',
He makes their eyes go bright
With words of hope and tender thought,
And visions of delight.
Hall to the Christmas Angel I
All peace on earth he brings:
Ho gathers all the youths and maids
Beneath his shining wings.
Hero comes tho little Chrlst-chtld,
All Innocence and Joy,
And bearing gifts In either hand
For every girl and boy.
He tells the tender story
About the Holy .Maid,
And Jesus In the manger
Before the oxen laid.
Like any little winter bird
no sings his sweetest song,
Till all the cherubs In tho sky
To hear his carol throng.
He Is the children's Christmas;
They come without a call,
To gather round tho grnclous child,!
Who bringcth Joy to all.
But who shall bring their Ciiustmas,
Who wrestle still with llfol
Not grandslrcs, youths, nor little folks,
But they who wage the strife;
Tho fathers and tho mothers
Who tight for homes and bread,
Who watch and ward tho living,
And turv all the dead.
Ah 1 by their side at Chrlstmas-tldc
Tho Lord of Christmas stands;
Ho smooths the furrows from tho brows
With strong an J tender hands.
J'l tako my Christmas gift," ho salt'i,
"From thee, tired soul, and he
Who glvcth to my little ones
Gives al s a unto mcl"
A NEW YEAR'S STORY,
By Ernest Olllmorc,
Full up my shawl on my shouldor,
plcaso, Bcsslo doar, I fool so cold,1' tho
minister's invalid wifo said with a shiv
er. "Thoro has boon a groat chango
in tho woatlior, Bcsslo."
"Indood thoro has. My teoth actual

"Did you not havo a good flro?"
"Yes, yes", wo had a good flro, but

"I am afraid you aro not drosscd

tioncd tho mother anxiously.
Bessio laughed, "I havo got on what
wo did call winter ilannols, mothor,
two years ago; but I hardly think it
com latent to dignify thorn with that
namo, Do you, raammaP Lock!"
and tho young girl pulled up hor dress
slcovo to oxhibit her undorwoar rag
god and thin, and past monding, in
fact, long ago.
"It is too bad, Bessio; and you so del
icate," said Mrs. Harrison pityingly.
"Wo must contrivo somo way to got
you a now supply. Flannels bolong to
tho nccossarios of lifo; and suroly a
minister's family ought to bo supplied
with things which aro absolutely nec
essary to ono's comfort."
"Don't worry about my flannels;
mnmma; I can pot along hotter than
you. Yours aro in no bottoi condition
than mine; only, mamma," and Bessio
spoko ,'owor, "If tho patches on your
flannel wrappers wcro colored, wo
might call it 'Joseph's coat,' for I vorily
bellovo thoro ara at least one doim
patches upon it. Somo pooplo boliovo
in great friction of 'ho skin of tho
body. Who knows but what it was
somo poor minister's wifo who orig
inated tho idea out of hi r own suffering.
Do you boliovo it, mamma?"
Mrs. Harrison smiled.
"I don't sco anything to call forth a
smile, unless it is from tho inferenco

"Who mar: led the maiden all foricn,
Who mtlknd the cow with the crumpled horn.'
"What's tho troublo, Sam?" It wns
Bessio asking tho question of her
brother, who was hunting among tho
modlclno bottles "for a stray chicken,"
Bossio thought by tho clatter.
"Troublo, dhP A-ketohum, a-kc-ko-koUfjum."
Sam sneozed hlsnnswor,

"You emphaiizo tho warm; aro yu

toward hissislor, winding up his

"Toll mo what you nro looking for.
Perhaps I can find It," said Hosslo.
"t want tho glngor. Mothor said I
flliould tako somo, and then hoat my

I promised hor, ami I'm not tho boy to

sitting dawn dolefully by tho stove.

' Not from oxporionco, I liopo, Boss.
Aren't your clothes warm?" askod Sam
anxiously; for ho lovod Boss dovolodly.
"Hot as warm as thoy might bo bam
but go on with your list. What clso

"Somo flannels would notcomonmiss,
It comes rather hard on a follow who

"With all duo respect, sistor mine,
I will say, 'Suroly I dont,' Truth is l'vo
"Is your mind wandering?"
"No, not at all. Did you notlco a

"Yos," Bess replied oxp?o'.antly
"That's tho Union Hag, weeping ovor
"And tho dosortor?"
"Tho deserter! My old underwear.
Thoy wouldn't bo union any moro; in
fact, thry havo burst ontiroly."
Tho truth wns tho Harrison family
woro In a great strait. Tho minister's
salary was painfully smnll. His wifo
had been sick for sovoral months, and
tho physician's bill had proved a largo
ono. Then, although thoy kopt no reg
ular servant, provisions for a fi mlly of
eight wns no small item; and now,
nl hough Novcmborwlnds whistled and
pierced, and oven snow hnd come, thoro
hnd boon as yot no addition to tho win-
tor wardrobes of tho Harrisons.
In a palatial homo on Dunham Squaro
thoro was warmth and luxury, though,
strictly speaking, not so much comfort.
Tho November winds swept fiercoly
past tho house, but could find no en

"Whon I wns a boy," said undo Tim,

up all night to catch old Kris?."
Did jou catch Mm?" askod Nollio
No," said Undo Tim, "wo fell

Ouch, did zoo try, Nunkoy?" said
"Woll, wo began to fed hurt and to
think that old Kriss had punished us
for not boliovlng in him when both of
us found a bright silver uouar way
down in tho toes. Now suppose you
children watch to-night. Wo'll bring
our bod nnd crib into tnis room nnd
leavo tho lamp burning, and maylio
when Kriss comes ho will mnko so
much noiso getting down tho chimney
that you'll wnko up and see him."
Oh, that's just jolly," exclaimed
tho throo children.
So Undo Tim called tho stablo-boy,
Joo, and told him to fetch in tho bed
nnd crib. Joo was quite nn odd-looking
lad. Ho was tall for his hgo, ami
almost ns slim as tlio hitching post at
tho yard gate. Two yoars beforo,
whllo Undo Tim was In tho city, ho
found Joo on tlio street a ragged,
rough boy, who lookod ns though ho
woro half starved. As tho chimneys nt
tho old farm houso nocdod sweeping.
Undo Tim took Joo homo with him
and Joo lived thoro from that timo on.
Joo put tho bed and crib in placo and
vory soon tho children wero fast
sleep. Oneo ill opened his eyes, nnd
roinomboriiuc that ho was to watch for
10 coming ot Kriss, he looked toward
tho lire-placo. Tho llro had gono out
and In tho placo of tho backlog was a
llo of gray ashes. The stodclngs had

Ith a dim light upon iho mantel.
Will muttered to hlmself that ho didn't
think Kriss would como at nil and
again foil asloop.
"TioR-tlck, tick-tick," went tho old
clock in tho cornor. A littlo mouse
peeped out from under tho bureau and
ran across to tho cupboard. It was
midnight and vory still.
Suddenly Nollio pluched Will on tho
irnt and said: "Listen, what's thatP"
Will rubbed his oyes and lookod at tho
liroplaco. Tho pilo of gray ashes still
ostod about tho fcot of tho brass and
irons. Tho stockings still hung tin-
touchod. Tho lamp still burned with a
dim light. Nollio and Will fixed thoir
yes ou tho black openirg of the chim

Tho tnbuso, which had beon nibbling In
tho cupboard, ran to the mlddlo of tho

tho fruit on their heads, all docked with
flowers, and singing nnd dancing to the
sound of hnrps und flutes. Had I not

ical descriptions of it, nnd had I not

coarse shirts und looso drawers tucked

fountains of pure water, and wouldn't

For thero was a kind of grimnoss about
them, burned in by tho sun, which
seemed to indicate that thoy nover
washed olthor themselves or their
clothes. In fact, they had a lino con
