The maid was very fair to see,
But staid, and not inclined to folly.
She stood behind the Christmas tree
And gravely hung a wreath of holly.
Himself passed there, by chance, and
Her all alone, and straightway, lin
And she. who had-been tranquil—pshaw!
Became at once must butter-lingered!
The mistletoe hung overhead
(.1 think I saiil the maid was fair?)
Her eyes were bright, her lips were red,
And sunbeams glistened in her hair.
The tree was large, the two were hid—
He turned tad left her?—.Yes,
The maid was very wroth. Oh, dear,
She ran away with 'cheeks a-ttaming
'Twixt anger and a touch of fear,
The scarlet of the holly shaming.
She told her dearest, friend, I've heard.
So, shortly, everybody knew it
The place whereat the deed occurred
Was near, and maidens flocked to view
Himself was there, engulfed in ghio&l
(Anil he was also good to see.)
The mistletoe its waxen bloom
Still daunted for those maids to WO
And so they each one ran and hid.
And scorned to tarry?—Yes,

"Mr. Glithery gave Mrs. Glithery a
pearl necklace for a Christmas pre*

"I've heard about It," answered Mrs.
Twobble. "And If It wasn't for the
risk, I dare say she'd hang It In a
front window of their apartment in*
stead of a holly wreath."
"Those pretty girls who stand be
neath the mistletoe pretend they don't
know where they are."

"They'd unow in a Jiffy if some fellow
came ulong with a harelip."
