A Canalboat "'flow are wo to spend Christ mas;" exclaimed ill.' g'-od natured Mrs. Captain Boggs, seemingly a bii sur prised at the question, for canalboat folk are sensitive of any criticism aim ed in their direction. "Why, we're going to spend the day Just like other folk. Some think be cause we live on canalboats we don't have any comforts ami eat like sav ages. My, but I'd a heap sight rather live down here than in a flat like my niece's She's got six rooms, and they don't begin to be as big as mine. "If you think there ain't room just look here," and Mrs. Boggs displayed the secrets of a suit of rooms, the in genuity of the arrangement rivaling the den of the New York bachelor girl. Out of the main cabin, which served as living and dining room combined, two alcoves jutted, besides an infinitesimal corner dubbed the kitchen, but which was even tinier than the modern apart- U*siit house kitchenette. While under ordinary circumstances the kitchen was part of the cabin proper, two doors at right angles to each other could be drawn out, which, meeting, formed a room by itself. A s!iin\ coal stove or range quite lilled the compartment, leaving just room I . fore it in win li to work, while above II every inch of wali space was uiilizid with pots and kettles and kitchen uten ils of every sort. A low cupboard opening into the bold contained more articles of kitchen use, as well as vegetables mid canned oii<bi. liui.l.s were displayed in tL-j iwo other alcoves, which were in open view of the cabin. But from the re* cc.-ses of the boat Mrs. Boggs pulled <»ut a sliding Uoor, which completely <!i\isled the space into two rooms, and when curtains were drawn into the cu!>iu the oc upants enjoyed ail the privacy desired A big div.iu ould be opened up at night into a roouiy double bed, and an other bunk, "just under the eaves," was sufficiently large to tuck two small youngsters away. Chests of drawers built in, wardrobes and cup boards in out of the way places sup plied room for bedding, clothing and the boots and shoes of a family of children. One of the biggest surprises in the boat, one which conveyed a hint that might be applied in small houses where room is at a premium, was the pre served fruit lockers. "We all uo up our own fruit," went on Mrs. Boggs. "You see. while we go up the canal we are in the country most ol' the lime, and it is much cheaper to put up our own fruit than "I'D A HEAP HI"HT RATH Kit LIVE DOWN UKHK." buy it in winter, and this is where we store it." Going to (lie stairs up the companion way, she pulled out tiny drawers. Small I nobs Jutted out from the face of each step with which to open the drawers, while within there was quite room enough to allow pint fruit Jars to stand upright. A cold storage room was tucked away in the hold, into which a Miiall door about two feet in height o|M?ued. The dining table was a folding affair which turned up against the wall of the cabin when not In Use. When some urprlse was expressed at the presence of a aewii.g machine in the room Mrs, Hoggs said: "Ob. that's not lib >.

And well our ' hristhir sires of old Loved when the vein* its course had rolled And brought blithe Christmas back again With all his hospitable I ruin. Domestic and religious rite Gave honor to the holy night. On Christmas eve the beiis were rung; On Christmas eve the mass was sung; That only night in ail the year Haw the stolcil priest the chalice rear. The damsel donned her kirtle sheen; The liall was dressed with holly green; Forth to the wood did merry men go To gather in the mistletoe. Then opened wide the baron's hall To vassal, tenant, serf and all; THEN CAME THE MERRY MASKKBS IN. Power laid his tod of rule aside. And Ceremony dotted bis pride. The heir, with roses in his shoes. That night might village partner choose; All hailed with uncontrolled delight And general voice the happy night That to the cottage as the er< wn Brought tidings of salvation down. The tire, with well dried logs supplied. Went roaring up the chimney wide; The huge hall table's oaken face. Scrubbed till ii shone, the day to grace. Bore then upon its massive board Xo mark to part the squire and lord. Then was brought in the lusty brawn By old blue coated serving uiun*. Then the grim boar's bead trowued ou high. Crested with bays and rosemary. Well can the gr-en barbed ranger tell How. whin and where the monster fell. What dogs before his death tie tore And all the baiting of the boar. The wassail round, in good brown bowls. Garnished with ribbons, blithely !ro\*is. There the tiuge sirloin reeked; hard by I'luni porridge »i'««l and Christmas pie, Nor failed o;d Scotland to produce At such high tide her savory goose. Then came the uierry maskers in. And carols roared with blithesome din; If uit melodious was the song. It was a hearty note and strong. England was merry Kiiglaud when Old Christmas brought Ills n|xirts again. "i'was Christmas broached the mighti est aie; "Twas Christmas told the merriest tale; A Christmas gambol oft could cheer The poor man's heart through half the year. —Sir Walter Scott. THE WREN BUSH.
