A heavy snow fell about the first of December, but the driving not lb- West wind which followed, left it ht4& piles and drifts. 80 n little addition; to the first supply, which fell two days before Christinas, yns welcomed by all. On the following morning f the sun i'osc clear, but, tho air was biting. After an early breakfast every man who owned a gun was out hunting wild turkeys, mid every boy who could lnv clnUn to a dog was in pursuit of rabbits. Tlicro being no scarcity of either kind of game, both men and boys Were generally more or les succc8fiil. Hut school-time "Javed many a rabbit, nndiseiit mnny 11 boy to his tasks with inultorings of what lie would do'tomorrow1 On Christmas we the children, !e is usual uitli children, were anxious to know wlmt ''Old- Kiiss" would bring them, but they' had liecn wise enough to examine as carefully ns they could without showing too much interest, all parcels which their fathers " , hnd brought from town within the " hiM weekj And childish curiosity had in ninny cases circumvctucd tho cunning of mature yenrs But sleep comes sooner1 to young' eyes then to old, and It stays more stubbornly with them. The stockiugs' having been hung, the light, candle-light of Christmas morning revealed all mystorio's and solved all doubts about the annual return of the bene volent visitor. Tho first excitement of the morning over, the meeting in the country church began to occupy attention. Tlie boys gave up their ' . rabbit hunts or cut them short not so much for the sake of tho sermon ; as for fear 6f missing what came after. At, ten o'clock a team of farm hordes, whose spirits hnd been roused by a few weeks of rest ami cold weather, weie driven around to the front gate drawing an old-fashioned long sled, the box of which wa. half full of prairie hay. Soon all were in, seated 011 tho hay, covered with shawls, buffalo robes, and blankets, and otherwise protected from the cold, which none feared. Up hill and down, the horses kept their their speed. Coining to the church, all hurried 111, for the Hying snow had prepared them to enjoy gathering around the red-hot stoves. Une of these stood on each side of the room that on tho left being particularly . adapted to the uso of the inulu portion of the Congregation. The people did not come nil nt once, but in half an hour so many were present that the minister went into -tiic pulpit. After tho singing of a, hymn, without trained lender or instrument, he read of tho shepherds who abode in the field, and kept watch over their Hock by night 011 the plains of, Bethlehem; kneeling he fervently prayed for himself and all of his congregation, for well ho knew each one. Then ho proclaimed the Glad Tidings and repeated tho old, old story of a Huviour, went from Heaven to fallen man. "When tho parting benediction, had been, invoked upon tho congregation, they did not disperse so quickly as is thought proper'among lnoroiassuming people. They lingered that they might, exchange cheerful wprds with. many friends.
