A Moneyless Christmas.
A Christmas without spending
money 1 Widwintor holidays \yithout
?lolls or picture hooks, tops, toy ban?
non or jumping jacks, colored candies
or any "store presents" of any kind
whatsoever 1 Christ's nativity cele*
orated without a Christmas treo or a
Christmas carol or a gathering of the
childrenT-no ovorgreou shrub spark
ling with glass, no Santa Claus and no
pantomime. Could such a thing bo in
a christian land ?
And it is not so very long ago that
just auch a Christmas was the rule in
three fourths of tho United Staten
nay, it is tho rulo now in considerable
sections whore thoro aro no largo
towns. So easily do wo got accustom
ed to what is, atul so naturally do
children believe that thc system they
lir?t noticed has always been tho sys
tpm, that most people do not know,
and oven the oidor ones aro forgetting,
that tho Christmas of to-day is cora
putatively a now tiling.
But what was tho old time Christ
mus, und with wimt sights and sounds
was it ushered iu ? Well, in tho iirst
place, it was-in all tho rural regions
at any rate-a time when no monoy
could ho "wasted." Children must
have their fun without oxtra expense,
sttvc as each child had carefully saved
his pennies. As to deliberately hand.
,'% ing out a half dollar to a boy for
Christmas-tlio av?rage father would
ns soon have thought of giving him a
deed for tho farm. It was a season
for rabbit hunting and sledding if!
there was ico, for a good dinner and
an extra piece of pie, and then, per
haps, for some home made presents.
But times have changed, and the
children of to-day would not bo satis
fied without a "good timo" on Christ
mas. Now, what's to be dono .about
it? Monoy is scarce ano the cry of
"hard times" is heard on every hand.
