week 1 wollt oat into tlio mountains for
tlio purpose of scouring a liolly tree witli
red berries on it for Yuleti lo. 1 hud
noticed in all my pictures of Christmas
festivities in England that, iii*- holly,
with cranberries OU it, constituted thi
background of Yuletide. A Yuletide in
England without a holly bough and H
little mistletoe iu it wouldn't bo worth
half price. Herr these vegetables grow
in great profusion, owing t<> I lie equable
olimate, and so tho holly tree is within
tho reach of all.
1 resolved to secure one po : (?nally, so
1 sped away into the mountains, where,
in less than the limo it takes I i toll it, 1
had succeeded in Unding a holly tree and
losing myself, lt is a very solemn sen
sation tu feel that von aro lost, and that
before you can he found something ?
liable to happen to the universo.
1 wandered aimlessly about for half an
hour, hoping that I would la' missed in
society and some ono sent in sein oh of
nu'. 1 was just about to give up in
despair and sink down on a IM 1 of moss
with the idea ol shufHiug oft* six or seven
feet of mortal coil when, a few rods
away, f saw a hine smoke issuiug from
the side of the mountain and rising to
ward tho sky, [ wont rapidly toward it
and found it to he a plain dug-out with
a dirt floor. I entered and e t myself
upon a rude nail heg, allowing my feet
to remain suspended at the lo M I- end of
my legs, nu altitude wliioh I frequently
aflect when fatigued.
The place was not occupied ul tho time
[ ontered, though there was -.: iii. and
things looked as though tho < % ;i<. r had
not been long absent. lb soomod to be
a kind id lal . irntorj . tor I could seo boro
and there tho earmarks of tho chemist.
J feared at first that it was a i. >mb fac
tory, but as I emild uol ste any of these
implements in a perfected stale I decided
that it was safe natl waited for thu owuor
After some time I heard a low, gutter
al footstep approachiug up tho hill, I
went to the door and exclaimed to the
proprietor as he carno, ".\hi . , Christ
"Merry Christmas be |" . dd he in

medium le ight, with char Gill features
und retreating brisket. His hair was
dark uml laing in great waves, which
BCCmcd to have caught the sunlight uml
retained it togethor with a great many
other atmospheric pin uomena. Ho wore
a straw hat, snob as 1 once saw Horace
(irceley catch grasshoppers in, on tho
bunks of tht) Kinniokinnick, just before
lie caught a small trout.
1 spent sollie time with him watching

Tho steamer Victoria was not the only

crippled three of her ciew. On the day
of tiie typhoon high waves rolled the
ship as if it were but a cork on the sur
face, lt was Impossible for tho men to
keep their feet, and all who could took
refuge in their luniks. Tho sails wore
blown away. All the dishes and cooking
utensils were broken and destroyed.
There were thn n feet of water in the
L'aliins and tho Stores and provision wen'
mostly injured or washed out. Tho
wheel gear, tho chocks and lower bridge
di ck were washed away and the star
board light smashed in. The forecastle
was carried away and tho men had to
,tay in tho sail lockers, lt was simply
risk iug ono's to go forward or to boon
leek. Several ol the tlromon and sailors
were disabled, but none seriously in
jured, tn tho judgment of tho oulcors

Have weathered the Btorin if nbc hud

ipon the "glowing roports ol great

wide network by which temperance and

may communicate with one another, and
may be enabled to help each other in
their great reforms. >
Thc ? special advantages resulting will i
lie as follows: The- workers in each I

oonio informed, first, of tho methods m ?
work successfully carried ou in all other ;
countries; and secondly, of tho most i
useful provisions of tho already existing i
