18S8, opened n cold, blustering time.

defer the nun i iago of Robert and Isibel,
which was to have como oil at Christmas.
The cronies of the Ship Inn deplored tho
prospect for tho poor and shook their heads
In sympithy ns mild expiation for their
conifoiting "lunimera" of grog.
"Good cening, doctor," squeaked old
Solomon Quiglej, the puns' clerk, us
genial Dr. Dow lby came beaming in. For

Lady Lee had commissioned him to buy n
hundred and fifty geese for tho Christinas
dinner ol the needy. But Eeteranil Iloni

farmers piesent Then up spoke Robert
"Geese are plcntif nl and cheap in Franco.
I will ret them by pajment for my time."
Dr. Dim lby assented, tho company np
pl.iudcil, and tho giiled coast guard cap

Robe-1 in a look of d'ized solicitude

Robi.it, kisi'ig herut her father's cottage,

"A wlIcoiiio cm go," said Dr. Bon lby.
"T.i'.o ca!o of tliem to night, Robert."
"o, a good selection," muttered tho
griz-ilul t.'ipt.iin, peering into the lece-sses
of the bo it, "ve-iy goo 1. There is abso
lutely notuing but the geese," he whis
pered dijixtedly to himself; then loudei to
"I bay, ilr. Quiglej, theio is really noth

"Kothiug," piped Solomon, "unless there
may 1 u any ganders among 'cm."
"Bah!" suid thu captain. And now the
Ship Inn i.j a bower of evergreens, for to
moirow Is Chtistmas eve.
"I he.u," obscned Sir. Qulgley In n
low, commanding tone, as he slowly filled
his pipe, "that Robert Dure and Isabel
Vcnuaroto be married to mouow."
"Yes," slid the doctor, glancing from
tho punch bowl to tho captain; "by
"I w Ish I may die," wheezed tho land
lord, "if I warn't told thut Robeit had
bought Rose cottage, iu SeaforU lane."
"Ami he is gone oft today for furniture,"
said the captain; "mysterious, very."
"And quite a party is invited to the
breakfast ut Venn's uforo they're oil for a
London honeymoon," gasped tho landlord.
"There's tho wicar and squire und the
doctor and the cappen nnd Mr. Qulgley
and I, and some of the littler folks."
It was a pleusant wedding breakfast, in
which the joy of tho young people blended
with tho happy spirit of Christmas; tho
flag wined from tho tower of tho old gray
church, und tlio notes of tho bells floated
down the valley until thoy woro lost
among the locks.
"It la not true," said Robert in respond
ing to the toast of brido und bridegroom,
"that I have purchased Roso cottage; we
are going into an established business at
Exeter; but perhaps it Is fit thut I should
explain some of tho features Pi my lust

Loud was tho laughter unci cheering,
winch ouly subsided us tho lust toast was
"A merry Christmas to nil friends here

At this juncture thu grizzled captain,
who had been missed for u moment, reap
peared with n florid face und sheepish air.
Ho had lal.cn off his uniform jacket with
its gilt buttons and avullcd himself of the
doctor's oiercoat. Thus, with a lightened
conscience, ho joined in tho toast with Its
"threo tim"s thioo."
