My friend, I know yon think of mo .
Now that Tha Christmas time draws
near, 1 . .
"When lights will gleam tipon the tree
And all on world be filled with cheer.
' I know yon think of me, for I
Am thinking -all the while of yon
! Now, here's aTaa that we might try
With the -gift-giving we would do.
Suppose, Instead t sending me
The gift Which even now you plan,
! You go and find where there may be
A child, a woman, or aman
: To whom the good Saint may not come
Unless by yon personified
fSome one who, patient, worn and numb,
j Looks at the future weary-eyed.
Suppose I, too, nntl such a one
: Some eager little girl or boy
Whom poverty has robbed of fun,
Who does not have a doll or toy
And you give as you'd give to me
To those who sit and wait and sigh
And dream of pleasures that might be;
Suppose you do and so will I.
I know the gift that I might send
Would fail to rouse the slightest glow
Of cheer within your heart, my friend,
If you knew that some one had woe,
Some one who had no joy nor mirth,
Nor dancing shadows on the wall
For Christmas Is of little worth
Unless it comes to one and all.
So h?t us make each other gifts
" Give that which sanctifies the soul :
The kindliness that bends and lifts
The sorrowing and makes him whole.
And it may be that He whose day
It is that thus we celebrate
Will blot some sin of ours away

Milwaukee Accused of Keeping the
Cherry Mine Shut Coroner's
Witness Still Gone.
Cherry, 111., Dec. 21. The coroner's
jury reconvened at Cherry yesterday,
but was unable to secure the attend
ance of the much-wanted witnesses,
and an adjounment was taken. No
trace of Alexander Rosenjack nas been
discovered since the night' that he mys
teriously met Fred Buck, son of the
chief clerk of the coal company, and
then disappeared. Robert Dean the
other witness whose presence Is de
sired, is also missing. The coal com
pany, the coroner alleges, is keeping
secret the readings of the temperature
in the mine. Yestrday the company
shipped the fan to the shops of the St.
Paul Railroad company to be repaired,
and it was said it would likely be five
or sjx weeks before the fan could be
replaced in position.
The feeling prevails in Cherry that
the coal company is making every ef
fort to delay the opening of the mine
for the purpose of making impossible
the work of identifying the 202 bodie3
remaining in the pit.
