This (roth I fain would make moat i !ptr: Tbe strong frooi me have oauylit to fear. ?Jack Frost. Paddy the Beaver was ready for the coming of Jack Frost none too soon. The very night of the day Paddy finished his work on his food pile, his house and his dam Jack Frost arrived. lie came silently and he worked fast. Paddy was asleep at the time. You know he had worked so hard for so many weeks getting ready for winter that he was very tired when he entered his house late in the afternoon and curled up in his snug bedroom for a nap. He was so tired that he slept until the night was far spent. t It was just before daylight that HE HAD PINCHED P.OBBY COON'S NOSE WHEN HE POKED IT OUT OP HIS HOLLOW TREE. Paddy awoke, slipped down through his subway into his pond, swam a. short distance down near the bottom and then started up to the surface. Instead of poking his head out of water as he expected to, he bumped It. Yes. sir. Paddy bumped his head. Of course, he knew instantly what he had bumped it against. It was ice. Paddy's pond was frozen over. , "Jack Frost has come and I was ready just in time," thought Paddy as he tried a couple of times to break the ice and couldn't. "He must have come early last night and worked hard and fast to make this ice so thick." Then Paddy dived and swam | straight to where the Laughing Brook enters his pond. He knew that there he would find open water, for it takes very cold weather and much of it to freeze running water. There he poked his head out and drew a long breath. It was sharp and clear, that air he tilled his lungs with, and It made him tingle all over. Then he looked at his pond: It was one great sheet of clear, glistening, smooth ice. Paddy looked over at his house. He didn't need to go over to It to know that Jack Frost had been busy there, too. Paddy chuckled. "Jack Frost has frozen hard all that mud I cov ered my house with." said he, talk ing to himself. "He can't freeze it too hard to suit me. Now I shall feel quite safe. He certainly has been busy." Paddy was right; Jack Frost had been busy. All through the stilly night, for this time he had come without rough Brother North Wind, he had worked fast and hard. The Smiling Pool was frozen over just as was the pond of Paddy the Beaver, and above the ice stood the roof of Jerry Muskrat's house. Jack Frost] hadn't had so much work to do there, for Jerry's roof was chiefly of rushes and there was not such a lot of mud to make hard as at Paddy's house. He had frozen the ground until it was so hard that even the sharp hoofs of Lightfoot the I>eer left no mark. He had covered the quiet places on the Big River with Ice and made a 'beautiful shining fringe of It all | along the laughing Brook. He had crept through cracks in Farmer Kfown's henhouse and made the hens crowd closer together to keep warm. He had found Peter Babbit and made Peter jump and skip and scamper about. He had pinched Bobby Coon's nose when he poked it out of his I hollow tree, and Bobby had decided \-ery promptly that he didn't want to go out, but would sleep Instead. All over the Green Meadows and the Old Pasture and through the Green Forest and the Old Orchard went Jack Frost that night, 'and there wasn't a crack so small that he didn't And It and blow his cold breath through it. He had come to stay and lie meant that everybody should know it. It was a busy night for Jack Frost. Tes. sir-ee, it was a busy nilfht for Jack Frost. And when morning came some were glad and some were sad. and all knew that the days ahead were for those only who were stout of heart. (Copyright. 1921. lor T. W. ft urges*.)

That Is, the calendar says It's nearly win ter, but you'd never find It out by ask ing the landscape. The violet beds are In bloom all around the houses In the country, banking each little home tn with a wall of budding fragrance. I remember the coming of the win ter In New Kngland. We banked the houses there, too, but not with vio lets. When the first numbing of the frost began at night we would gather in the fallen leaves and heap tliem high around the house to keep the basement warm. Dead leaves and withered corn stalks, dry grass, the empty shells of summer's growth and beauty?we would rake them up and pile them close around our homes. It made for coxy wintering. But. some how. I prefer the violets. Banking your house with violets, or banking It with dead leaves?some how that reminds me of the way folks prepare to meet their winters. Winter comes to all of us, the winter of our lives. Soon or later spring and sum mer depart. Soon or later the (Ires of autumn fail, the days grow gray, the chill descends upon our dreaming. We cannot escape it?but we meet it so differently. Some of us. most of us, I fear, try to shut out the winter bitterness by walling ourselves in with the mem ories and prejudices of our past years, the dead leaves of our once vigorous growth, the withered stalks of our dreams. Closer and closer we gather our dead accumulations about us. guarding our hearts against the stress and change of the passing seasons. But others of us bank our hearts with violets! Let tile wind howl, let the walls shake, let the changing year upset the ordered warmth and comfort of our rooms, as it surely will. What do we care If we have ringed our spirits with young growth, with budding dreams, with ever-root ing hope. Banked in with violets? that Is the best, I think. HOME ECONOMICS. BV MBS.

Holly and mistletoe are the tradi tional Chrlatmaa deooratlons. Mistle toe la a legacy from the Drulda, who worahlped K when they found It growing on their sacred oak.

Holly seems to have been the i evergreen chosen by the pretty su perstition of very ancient Teutoni 1 times to hang Indoors as a refuge for woodland spirits from the rigors of the winter. Both of them oarry us back over the centuries to the early days of our race and should re mind us of the kinder thought of the world we have through Christianity. We can make our own wreaths, but let us have some Christmas wreaths. If Holly and mistletoe are not to be had we can use the ground pine and the bittersweet, and we can make long festoons of these, too, to makt our Christmas rooms keep holiday.
