"Now, Arthur, don't you stir out of this house till you've
sat down and written your Aunt May a nice note, thank
ing her for the Christmas book she sent you."

The box of Christmas
candy is passed on to
Olga, the sweet
toothed domestic.
Olga doesn't mind ?
bit that th? remain
ing layer consists
largely of the pink
filled pieces that no
body liked. A good
many of them have
been bitten into and
have been put back.
The light fiction coun
ter. several days after
Christmas. "No, I
knew the book wasn't
purchased here, hut I
thought you wouldn't
mind changing it."
Then Gladys will op?n
the book at one of the
Elaces which hasn't
een thumb marked,
to show how fresh and
new it lookt.
The Christmas toy?
have begun to pall on
Effie, even though a
household full of
grown-ups are con
tinually reminding her
that there are no end
of poor little boya
and girls who would
be glad of a single toy
to play with, and here
she is with all these
lovely, lovely play
things and tirea of
them already! Efflo
has been asking her
Aunt Helen how old
she is. Also, how old
a lady has to be lo
get married ? and
why Aunt Helen
hasrr*t any little
babies. Aunt Helen
is rather glad that
Kflie's school reopens
Monday next.
Sad-eyed elevator
man of the Linden
Court apartments
gazing, oh, so re
proachfully, at those
tenants who didn't
come across at all
handsomely on
Christmas Day.
The social whirl is a hard
lite, and Eldred is begin
ning to look wan and pale
from late parties. El
dred's family are all for
sending him back to prop,
school a day or so earlier
than usual.
Right?"Thank you so much, Sarah, dear, for
the darling little" and right there Ana
belle's mamma struck a snag. She was going on
to say how she had the gift right before her on
the desk even as she wrote, etc., etc., but
neither Anabelle. nor her mamma, nor Aunt
Jane can remember for the life of them what
it was Cousin Sarah sent.
Right ? January
which comes all
soon, bringing
Christmas bills.
