A LITTLE MISTAKE.
St. Nicholas was resting
From his Christmas work at last.
The gifts had all been given.
The holidays were past,
And dozing in the arm chair,
With his cat upon his knees,
The good Saint smoked his honest pipe.
And took his honest ease.
But something roused him quickly.
He started from his seat,
A soldier bold, a maiden lair.
Were kneeling at his feet.
"St. Nicholas," tlfe maiden cried,
"Behold my fearful plight!
These wound j have been inflicted
Since that dreadful, dreadful night
When you left me In the stocking
Of a being I dare not name—"
She paused, the soldier raised bis voice
And said: "I blush with shame
To stand before your salntsblp
In the dress you now behold,
But the way I have been treated
Uakes my very blood run cotd,
I've been nursed and kissed and coddled,
I've been rocked and sung to sleep;
Oh! were I not a soldier still,
I'd almost like to weep."
"Ah," mused the good St Nicholas,
"I think I understand,"
And he smiled a merry little smile.
And coughed behind his hand.
" 'Twas on that busy Christmas eve
When all was in a whirl,
This doll was given to a boy,
This soldier to a girl."
And then aloud he gravely said:
"I grieve to see your pain.
But If you'll stay with me a year
All shall be well again.
Next Christmas eve, my children,
When you are well and 6trong.
I will put you In the stooklngs
Where yon really do belong."
—J. McDermott, In Youth's Companion.
A CHRISTMAS CHIME.
At Christmas time, from clime to clime,
Eacn star to Ht ir doth 6weetly chime
Till all the heaveDS are ringed with rhyme.
Then, loosed above, a note thereof
Floats downward like a wandering dove,
And all the world is ringed with love.
—John B. Tabb, in Christmas Ladies' Home
Journal.
A REAL CHRISTMAS.
How Miss Hopkins Enjoyed Her First Uerry
Holiday. I
"Ugh! I wish it was ail over for another ,
year!" whispered Miss Frisoilla Hopkins to
a sparrow on the telephone wire. Just why .
she should wish the merry Christmas day
passed, Miss Hopkins herself could hardly .
have told. ,
The big New York boarding-house was ,
alm"bst deserted. All of the thirty boarders
had scattered for the holidays, except the
invalid on the parlor floor, the crusty Ger- |
man professor, old Mr. and Mrs. Brown, .
and the pretty, paverty-pinohed young j
widow on the fourth floor. Even the little (
music-teacher was off for a holiday trip,
and Mies Hopkins could hear the chamber- .
maid calling blithely to the grocer boy, that
"she'd be ready—oh, by seven o'clock,
surel"
Miss Hopkins pressed her wrinkled cheek
against the window pane, and looked down ,
into the dull, city street, with its patches of
dirty snow. A hard, bitter feeling crept
into her heart. There were so many good
times and she "not in 'em." The lodger .
on the fourth floor back was leaning against ,
the window-pane, too, but her cheek was
pink and smooth, the room very tiny and
cold, and the view from the window limit
ed to a row of back-yards. Perhaps her
heart was quite as heavy, for a tear splash
ed suddenly on the window-sill.
"I don't see any otheijpway," said Mrs.
Clark, looking at it, meditatively. "I dread
asking her—she is so stiff and silent, and !
we've hardly exchanged a dozen words. :
But my babies shan't be disappointed if I
can help it, so cheer up, my dear—we'll 1
have a merry Christmaß yet," and she nod
ded brightly at the tear-stained face in the
mirror. Then, running down the long
flights of stairs, she knocked at Miss Hop
kins' door.
"Come in," called Miss Priscilla, tam
ing with a surprised air, as the door open- 1
ed.
"I came—l thought—that is, I want to
ask & great favor, Miss Hopkius," stam
mered her visitor. ,- I have promised my
little girls that they shall spend Christmas {
with me, and that Santa Claus will visit
them here; but there is only room for baby
in my single bed; it is too cold for Marjory
to sleep on the floor and so—" Mrs. Clark
faltered, but the elder woman gave her no
help and she finished abruptly, with a little
tremble in her voice.
Miss Hopkins watched her in a puzzled
way, till her near-sighted eyea caught the
glimmer of a teardrop; then she;pushed for
ward a chair, saying, not unkindly.
"There, tell me about it. I didn't know
you had any children."
She heard a simple story of the brave lit
tie mother's struggle to make a uest for her
birds; and how. at last, finding a position
in the city, she had placed them in a board
ing-school where they would be well cared
for, and where she could visit them every
Sunday.
'•We try to make that do for all the
week," the little woman added, with a
smile, "and when a holiday cames we spend
ibe whole of it together. And I thought,
Miss Hopkins, perhaps you would let Mar
jory sleep with you to niebt."
Five minutes later Mies Prisciila was
standing alonebeforethe fire, wrinkling Ler
forehead anxiously; for, somewhat to her
own surprise, she bad consented to care tor
a six-year-old child all night. She! who
bad never held one in her arms, who looked
upon children as bewildering mysteries!
"Wbat shall Idoif it cries? ! ' she mur
mured, "or has the croup, or falls out of
bed, or wants a doll, or—you're a fool,
Priscilla Hopkins.!"
But when Mrs. Clark appeared at the
door that evening, with a little, curly-head
ed, white robed figure half hidden in a
great shawl, and gazing with big, sleepy,
black eyes at herself. Miss Priscilla half
forgave her folly. And when she had awk
wardly taken the warm, little body in her
arms, and a rosy cheek, soft as sutin, just
brushed her own, why, Miss Priscilla
thought she waß almost wise! But when
the little girl was tucked in bed, Mrs. Clark
bad left the room, timidly, in her quavering
old voice, Miss Priscilla sang a lullaby, till
the long lashes drooped and the pink lips
parted—and then Ihe ricb, lonely old maid
was certain that sha had noverdone so wise
a thing in her life!
"Sb!" she said softly, as Marjory's moth
er ottered tbe room, then flashed over such
weakness nod Btraigh'ened into her usual
rigid attitude.
"Mav we borrow yonr fire-place, too,
Miss Hopkins?" asked Mrs. Clark, with
growing courage. "To morrow would
hardly be Christmas if Santa Claus oouldn't
come down the chimney, you know, and
theie is only a register in my room. I will
try and keep the children from being very
noisy in the morning, if you'il let me hang
the little stockings hero to night."
With two such pleading eyes shining at
her over an armful of packages, Miss Pris
cilia felt she could hardly lefuse.
"B'm, yes. I don't know that it would
do any barm. All foo'ishness, I tbiuk."
"Do you?" said Mrs. Clark, brightly.
"But it's sacb a pleasure to watoh them
when they find the stockings in the corn
ing! Let me Bee, here's Noah's ark, that
goes in Tot's stockings and the little ele
pliant in Marjory's. Then here is a toy
watch for each of them and a stick of candy,
» pop cfcrn ball and a big orange to cap the
climax. Why, it just reaohes the top! How
fortunate there isn't any thing more!"
laughed Mis. Clark.
But, somehow, Mi s Piisoilla's spectacles
grew quite misty, and she took them off atd
wiped ihem once or twice. The little pack
ages were so very small, and tbe little motb.
STAUNTON, VA., WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1890.
er's way of laughing at her poverty was so
brave and cheery!
"Have the children any dollt?" asked
Miss Prisoills, pinning the stockings with
her own fingers to her cherished plush lam
brequin.
"Yes, two forlorn, little lelics. Tot's
has lost its head, I believe, and Angelina's
arms aie gone, but the children lovo them
and I couldn't afford new ones this year. I
must run back to Tot how. lam so grate
ful to you, Miss Hopkins; I hopo Marjory
won't disturb yon. Good-night."
"Good-night," answered Miss Priscilla,
and then she went back to the fire and star
ed hard at the little crimson stockings glow
ing in the firelight.
"I'll do it—so!" she said at last, decided
ly. Softly leaving the room she called down
the speaking-tube for the chamber-maid.
Good natured Katie readily promised to
"mind the child a bit," and, while giving
numerous oautionß, Miss Priscilla arrayed
herself in bonnet and oloak and started out
into the night.
The stores ware dazzling with gas light
1 and thß air wa-i sweet with the odor of pine
branches, but the gay festoons of buntiug
were not in half so happy a flutter as Miss
Prisoilla's foolish old heart. How hard it
was to decide between blue eyes and brown,
wax and bisque, and blue or gold tea sets!
And should she get nots and raisins, or
candy, or purple and white grapes? Miss
Priscilla couldn't tell, so she ended by get
ting them all and trotting home as fast as
possible, with her arms full of delightful
looking bundles.
"Arrah!" cried Katie, when she reached
the kitoben. "Whatever has come over
the ould lady? Bless me stars ef she didn't
hev a tay-set, a little stove an* a wagin' an'
two illegant dolls! An' she were a tip
toeing roun' like Saint Kick himself!"
In the gray dawn of the early morning,
Marjory, ouddled close within the protest
ing circle of her new friend's arm, reached
up a timid, little hand and touched her
cheek
"Sayl" Bhe whispered, shyly, "do you
think he's oome yet?"
"Who?" asked her bewildered bedfellow.
"Why, Santa Clans. I don't think I can
wait much longer to see—l don't think I
can."
"Try and wait till mamma comes with
Tot. Lie down and I'll tell you a story,"
coaxed Miss Prisoilla.
Luckily for the sucoess of the story, Mrs.
Clark lapped at the door just then, and
with a bound Marjory was standing upright
in bed, her eyes fixed on the fireplace.
"Oh!" the ohild oried softly, "On!" The
next moment the little voice burst out into
the happiest ripple of a song, without words
or tune, but it seemed as if any one would
know it was a Christmas carol.
"I declare!" said Miss Priscilla, wiping
her eyes on the pillow-oase, "I declare, it
makes me think of that hymn, 'Break Forth
into Joy!' "
The chubby fingers were already diving
into their stockings, and untying puzzling
knots, and each new discovery was greeted
by a little jubilee from the obildren and a
grateful glance from their mother at Miss
Priscilla, who, somehow, seemed always to
be looking out of the window. But Mar
jory found something tbat puzzled her —a
long, black stocking banging over the back
of a chair.
"Why, it's big like yours, mamma—how
funny! And there isn't any thing in it!''
"Yetb, there ith!" lisped Tot. "Turn
pin round and hard. 00-h,look, mamma!"
And the first ray of sunlight that struggled
into tbe room gleamed on a gold piece in
Tot's hand.
Miss Priscilla had disappeared into a deep
closet and was fumbling rouud for some
thing, which for some reason conid not be
found; perhaps because her nightcap had
bobbed down over her ejes. Bat. the next
mionte two arms were wound ar uud hai
and she heard a tearful voice whisper:
"You have been so good, so good to me,
dear friendl I wish I could thank you."
VjThere, there, ohild. Don't say another
word. I've been a rich, selfish old crea
ture, but I'm going to reform. And we've
all made sach a good beginning this morn
ing tbat I really think this is going to be
the first merry Christmas I ever had! There,
don't say another word!"—H. A. Hall, it
Interior.
Do You Want a Happy Christmas?
Do yoa want to make a happy Christ
mas for yourself and for other people? TbeD
give, and give royally, says Edward W.
Bok, in the Christmas Ladies' Homo Jour
nal. Royal giving means generous bestow
ing of the best that you have to those least
used to possessing.
Your royal gift may be but a loving mes
sage, but be sure if it is given in the name
of that little Child it will bring happiness
whereever it goes, and, like tho water of
the fountain, it will return to you with its
virtues a thousand times greater, and you
will be made better and younger by it. In
your joy remember the ohildren, not just
your own—they have you to look after them
but think of the little ones whose homes
are bare, where life is like a tossing sea.
Remember the sick children. Think of
the joy a beautiful toy, a great, round or
ange, a big bag of candies only to be look
ed at, will bring to the little ones whose
libs are tied down forever. Think of the
great picture book over which the eyes will
open wide—eyes, nay friend, that may BOon
be closed forever in death; and of the great
and intense delight felt when a wonderful
tree is recognized, o.- a bird's name is
known to the little boy whose life has been
spent in the close streets. These are gifts
that you will never regret. Give of them —
give of your plenty and from yo ;r heart,
and be sure that to each little one of your
own will come special happiness because
you have remembered the sufferers among
tbe babies. When that Divine Baby slept
so quietly in the stable, the great kings of
the earth thought it worth while to bring
presents to Him,and surely as you consider
the least among these, He will remember
you. Let the bells ring out, then, on
Christmas morning and let your heart bßat
in unison as you know .that you have
brought joy unto His little ones. Children
are God's own angels sent by Him to
brighten our world, and what we do for
thesp messengers from the sky, especially
at that time of the year which belongs to
them, will come back to us threefold, like
unto bread Cist upon the waters.
Remember,the first Christinas gifts were
laid at the feet of a child—a poor child of
humble parent,. Give your gitts, then, to
the humble, to the poor, to the helpless,
1 and thus will your own Christmas ba a hap
py one.
The Key-note of Christmas. —When
i you kneel in the green trimmed church and
I say over, qiite quietly, the little prayers
i which you love, just think, a minute 01
two afterwards, how you can make some
. body else happy on Christmas Day, and J
t assure yon you will gain in this way
I more absolute joy than has oome from the
Christmas presents sett to you. Tbe key
note of Cbristmiß D<y is the doing for
i somebody else. The Christ Ccild came
I into tha world, not to be happy, but to
c make happiness for others; to make the
I pathway of life smooth, and to show how
I forgiving, eveu unto death, one should bo.
i Bo make that your Christmas. Make it
r the day when enmity and grudges are for
' gotten, when the friendly grasp is given
t where it has been withheld for a year ar.ri

CHRISTMAS BLESSING.
"Lionei." Thin fingers flattered uneasi
ly about a frayed button on an equally
frayed and worn overcoat, and a woman's
anxious eyes looked deprecatingly Into tbe
husband's face.
"What is it, Marj?" bis tone was gentle,
witb an undercurrent of sadoess and des
pondency in if. "Christmas comns to-mor
row, Lionel." She did not look in his face
now, but closely scrutinized the frayed but
ton as if it were the absorbing object of her
thoughts.
"I know it, Mary."
"Could—could—you let me have a little
money, Lionel? For tbe children, you
know, dear—we have never let tbe day go
past without something for them."
"And we must not now," he said: "they
will never be young but once, poor things."
He took oit a worn wallet from his pocket.
"I have looked over all the old things in
Bearch of bits to make over into garments
or fancy things for them," she continued
apologetically, ''but every thing ia worn so
close, Lionel. I try to be frugal and sav
ing." Her eyes were filled with tears now.
"And you are, Mary. Where would we
have been had it not been for yonr careful '
management? Will two dollars be enough? 1
It is all I have this morning. Heaven 1
knows I wish I could make it twenty or a 1
hundred—there is no hmi'c to tbe deserts of 1
the good wife you've been to me, Mary.
Don't cry, dear, it takes all my courage
and strength to see you nnhappy."
The faded face was pressed against the
frayed button now in a vain attempt to
hide the hot tears which wonld come, and
his worn glove, much too thin for the sea
son, smoothed the thin gray hair tenderly.
"Then I must not cry," she answered,
looking up with a forced smile. "Yes, it
will be enough—more than I had expeoted,
but I feel so wicked to ask you for money
when I know you have so little to spare
me."
Yes, debt was the skeleton whioh danced,
not only in tbe closet but all over the
boase, in this bumble home, and Mary
went back to her work, her face drawn op
thoughtfully as she calculated just how
aaoy pennies could be spared for this or
;hat, and balanced the differences between
he strictly useful and the more childlike
out less material gifts. Two dollars after
ill was such a little drop in the bucket of
leceßSities, to say nothing of the ornament
al or the beautiful. It was not a debt of
sarelessness or of extravagance, she could
icaicely have borne the self-reproaoh and
;he shame of it if it had been, but was the
latural result of long years of sickness and
■everse. Lionel Webb in his younger days
iad just escaped with hia life from an at
ack of spinal meningitis which had re9u":t
>d in'a partial disability for life. He was
rery ambitious, and though obliged to ao
:ept work which had as little of manual 1a
)or in it as possible, Btill he did it often
vhen stronger men wouid have been in bed
witb a physician in attendance, did it in
inch bodily torture that he hardly realized
what be was doing.
Mary had her share of sickness, too; the
mxiety and jare attendant on Lionel's dis
ibility was enough to break a woman of
roD, which she was not, and in addition to
t all, three darling children had sickened
rod died,
Lionel had secured a new situation of
ate—he was growing better with years and
sould now take up a different class of work,
ind his present employer was a man of
arge wealth, employing many clerks in his
great business.
All this day Lionel worked in a mazs of
perplexity and regret. Mary's face, with
Che tears on it, was ever before him. To
night was Caristmas eve, and all day long
a procd'Siou of richly dressed mothers and
fathers thronged the store buying, baying,
from fall purees, whilo Mary, hii trae,
faithful wife, whose seventeen years of
married life bad been one long struggle
with toil and care, bad only a pitiful two
dollars with whioh to do her Christmas
shopping, and it grieved him to the very
heart's core.
Tb9 rus'a was over now, and in a half
hour more the great establishment would
be closed, when an errand boy touched his
•hn. "Mr. Dale wou'd like to Bee you in
the private offioe, sir," be said respectful
ly-
Lionel's heart sank in his bjsom like
lead. Could it be that in addition to his
other misfortunes he was going to lose his
situation? This engagement had been pro
visionary, and his employer had made no
sigu as to whether his service was accept
ably. He crawled rather than walked to
the office in bis nervous dread, for the past
had b„en so persistently unkind to him
that he was coming to dread the future.
''Sit down. Sit down, sir," said Mr.
Dale, cheerfully.
Lionel took a seat near tbe prosperous
business man, who noticed, as be did so,
tbe look of care and dejection on his em
ploye's thin face.
'It has been my custom, sir, for some
years to make my employes a little present
on Christmas eve," be proceeded genially,
as he took a bill from his desk drawer and
laid it in Lionel's hand. "1 presume you
can find a u»e for it; or if you can not, no
doubt the good wife oan, eb!"
Lionellooked at the bill in dumb aston
ishment; if an angel bad oome in and clap
ped bim on the shoulder ha would not have
been more surprised, for it was a fifty dol
lar bill.
"Bat, sir " he stammered, "I have been
with you so short a time, I have not merit
ed such consideration."
'•That's all right, sir. You'll have am
pie opportunity to make it up in yonr future
yea's" of service, for I do not intend to part
with so faithful an assistant."
There was more in the manner than in
tbe kind deed itself, and Lionel's h«rt
bounded up with gratitude. Ha thought
of Mary and of tbe many, many uses tho
money could be put to, warm blankets, the
winter cloik Mary bad needed for years,
and—but his face fell. There was a duo
niog letter in his pocket at that moment
which he had concealed from Mary—from
the holder of a uote against him for fifty
dollars and peremptorily demanding pay
ment.
No, no, it would be wrong to appropri
ate one dollar of the gift for personal needs.
Mr. Dale was a shrewd reader of faces,and
Lionel's thin, anxious face had appealed to
his sympath : es strongly since he had enter
ed the office, and he noted the ohange of
expression.
"What is it, Webb?" he said, kindly.
"You look depressed and troubled."
As Lionel heard the kind voioe and look
ed into tbe kind face an impulse came to
him to tell this man his troubles. It was
so bard to bear it alone and to wear a smil
ing face over a heart so filled with anxious
cire, and hardly knowing what he said, be
poured out his story of the past, of Mary
aud of bei pitiful shoppmg to day. "It
' hurts ma bo, Mr. Dale," be said, in conclu
sion. "that I can nut use even a dollar of
your generous gift for her "
"How much now would cover this entire
indebtedness?" asked Mr. D ile. He was
drumming thougbfully on his desk tnd
looking kseuly at Lionel, not in blame or
in doubt of the truth of his etory, bat in
making an eftort to put himself in an
other's place.
"Fifteen hundred dollars would pay
eveiy dollar."
Mr. Dale reflected—in tbe light of his
milliecs the sum seemed a very trifle; yet
here was a man whose strength and happi
i ne«s were be~ng wasted for ihe lack of it.
i "What would yoa say, then, if I should
| loa-i yon this in-n.ey and let you woik it
l ont gradually as you can aflord it?"
i "S'iy, sir! I should work on wings, it
would make my heart, so li?ht.''
"Then pai on your wii'gs," returned
Mr. D>lf, smiling,• for we'll have the mat
te: a at, an early date And now go
! home and sp> ,d this money for Mary and
! the cbildiea with a clear conscience."
I Mary was fillirg tho stockings when
i LTonf ! c-»me home and, poor sanl, she bad
evidently been shedding tears over the
•UA pretty raohe and ribjton for Jennie,
acd a pair of stockings and winter gloves
for Amy, the merest necessities amid tbe
ocean of lovely, tempting things she bad
seen that day; a pair of warm gloves for
Lionel which he would not buy for himself
lay in her bateau drawer, and there had
been just enough left to bay a small chick
en for the Christmas dinner, for a turkey
was not to be thought of this > ear.
She bad not beard him when bo ope Led
tbe outer door softly,and he stood watching
her through the glass door which led from
thq hallway to the little pailor.
She had finished new, and with the
stockings on her lap, leaned her head de
jectedly upon her hand. It was so bard to
give pennies where her warm heart would
so gladly lavish pounds.
"Ob, Lionel, bow you startled me," as
he opened the door and went in. "Why—
what has happened, dear?" He was load
ed down with packages, and every pocket
was bulging out in addition, and she knew
that something unusual had occurred.
' Tbe Lord hasn't forgotten us yet.
Kary," he said, taking her worn face in
bis hands and kissing it tenderly. She
listened to his reoital of tbe conversation
with Mr. Dale with eyes brimming over
with happy tears, and when be had finish
ed, and she realized that the load of har
assing debt was to be lilted, her face took
on a reverent shaie of joyful thanksgiving,
and taking Lionel's hand in hers, she saia,
gently; "Let us pray."
Mrs. F. M, Howard.
We Shall See.
It wag generally supposed that the result
of tbe November elections would open the
e;es of the Republican leaders to the popu
lar alarm and disapprobation at their des
perate and revolutionary coarse in the last
Congress. It was predicted that the omin
ous shadow of the band, and the prophetic
writing on tbe wall, would startle tbe
drnnken guests at this Belshazzar oaronsal.
But not so. Despite tbe fact that a very
large number of tbe Republican members
of the Senate were known to be opposed to
the force bill, tbe astonishing spectacle is
now presented of an apparent unanimity,
or. the Republican side, in favor of this ex
treme and odious measure. It is oviously
the dictate of desperation. The popnlar
verdict is overwhelming against them and
their subversive legislation. They plainly
see that they stand no chance of maintain
ing their robber grasp upon the govern
ment and politics of the country by a fair
and open appeal to the popular judgment;
and they have deliberately resolved to aot
npon Bab Roy's maxim.
"For whj?—Because the good old rule
Safflcetb them, tbe simple plan.
That they shall take who have the power.
And they shall beep who can."
To the dispassionate observer it would
seem to be the very aome of revolutionary
methods, if not of anaroby. Two months
ago almost one half of the Republican Sen
ators were avowedly opposed to the danger
ous and destructive expedient cf a toroe
bill. But now nnoer the terroism of the
caucus, and tbe domination of desperate
leaders, th.y abjure their honest and con
servative sentiments and join in the insane
demand for coercive legislation to count the
Presidential and Congressional vote of the
Southern Stateß on the Republican Bide, ir
respective of the popular predilection.
Tbey reverse the hlstoiical proveib and ap
peal from Philip sober to Philip drunk. It
i", to change the metaphor an appeal from
the pen to the s*ord. After the fullest
presentation of their case through the de
bates in Congress, and through politioal
pamphlets, scattered thick as autumnal
leaves in Vallambrosi, from one end of the
land to the other, they have been signally
rebuked at tbe polls. Their appeal, there
fore, Is no longer to the reason and sober
judgment of the people, but to brute force
—to the sword. They piopose to turn the
federal courts of the conutry into political
engines, and surround tbe voting preoincts
of the South with armed emissaries of these
partizan judges, in order to terrorize the
suffragans and coerce a pretended popular
majority for the Republican party. The
fact is the dominant will of this political
outlaw, Reed, has him in the hand
of bis party. He is a moral brute of the
most ferocioas type. When he shows his
teeth the other members ofthe parliament
of beasts" slink away in timid servility.
He has managed by bravado and biute
force to intimidate his entire party. There
is an amusing story in that wittiest of all
books, by Cervantes. When tbe Don mis
took a eat a van of mnleteers for an army of
hostile Kaight-errants, and valiantly charg
ed upon them, a tbick-muecled teamster
dragged Sancho Panza from bis saddle,and
with the broad side of his sabre belabored
him most unmercifully npon that portion
of bis anatomy which se need not here
pirticularizs; whereupon Sancho,upon get
ticg on his feet agait!, soliloquized that no
one need hereafter tell him that the pen
was mightier thin the sword. This is evi
dently the conclusion to which the Repub
lican leaders have come—than the sword is
mightier the pen. Bat is it? We
shall see at the ides of November, 1892.
Yea, we sh tll see.—Lynchburg News.
How to Accept Presents.
At the holiday season the giving of gifts
is prevalent. Now everybody can give
'sweetly, graciously and lovingly. How
many can accept in the same spirit? 1 felt
last yea; that there was a thread of ooarse
ni ss iu tbe girl wbo, looking at a fine book
that had been sent her by a friend, said: I
"Oh, dear, I suppose I shall have to gel
her something In return for it!" That's
barter and exchange. It isu't giving.—
Noting was to be sent in return for the
book unices it were the sweetest of thanks,
and ihe mere fact of the acceptance of a
gift does not force upon you its return.
Gift-giving is like love, the desire is sup
posed to oome from the heart, and no gift
is worth anything unless it is sent with
that feeling, and that only. But then you
tiink you aie to accept and never to re
turn? My dearest girl, we never kn:>w
how we return things in this world, but
everything does equalize itself. You have
been a charming companion and have
brightened maDy a moment to a woman
whose purse is better filled than yours.—
She Fends you, when a Christmas Day
oomes, eome dainty present, some pretty
trifle that she knows you will like, a book
about which yon have talked, or a pictuie
that you have admired; the return you
make should be your thanksgiving, and
that is all. Your gift of a joyful
was made long before the material one. I
do not mean by this that the woman who s
not rich must not give—God forbid it—but
I do mean she must not think of attempt
ing to return at once the gift that has come
to her. If, is vulgar, my dear. Wait until
another gift day comes round, and then
give something that expresses yotirtef, the
child of your bnin and your fiugers,
rather than of your pur'e. After all,
Emerson struck tha key-note of gift-giving
when he said, "Our gifts are for the most
part expressionless. Let the sailor bring a
sea shell, the poet a poem and the painter
a picture," and these are the gifts that,
being part of yourself, may be received as
of greater ralue than anything which
money could obtain.—Ruth Ashmork, in
Christmas Ladiea' Home Journal.

| Io view of ibe great stir recently made
. over the invention of the great German
f bacteriologist by which it is expected to
I mit gate, at least, in large measure, tbe
scourge cf tuberculosis in the human
fsm:!y, Bi.d icduce the enormous death
I i&to it produces Dr. Kuth has naturally
; becon.6 n moat atu active atd popular
1 figure. All tbe world now resds, talks and
! thinks of Dr. Kocb. The story cf bia iife
, is therefore interesting. Briefly told it is
1 this :
"He was born in Clanstbal, Germany,
on December 11, 1843, and is comparative
-1 ly a young man still, being only forty
eeven years of age. He graduated in
medicine in 1866, at Goettingen, and eet
-1 tied down to practice his profession in
Buckwiiz, Po6en. From 1872 to 1880 be
devoted himself almost exclusively to the
study of chemistry and bacteriology, and
was so successful in the latter direotion
that be was appointed a member of tbe
Health Board of the Empire. His studies
led him to the conclusion that tuberculosis,
or consumption, was caused by the pres
ence in the body of a minute germ, and bis
publication of an article announcing that
theory caused a sensation throughout tbe
medical world. Tbe publication was fol
lowed by others, and Dr. Koch's came
became so famous that he was made
Privy Counselor, and was put in charge by
the Emperor of a scientific expedition to
Egypt and India, with a view of studying
the cholera. It was on this expedition that
be discovered the cholera germ, and for
his invaluable services he received a hand
some financial reward from the Emperor,
and was made a professor in the Imperial
Hygienic Institute in Berlin, whioh chair
he still ocoupies."
A melancholy result of the Doctor's in
cessant labors in the interest of humanity
is the recent impairment of his health. A '
small man, not over 5 feet 5 inches In
height, but sturdily built, a year ago he 1
was possessed of great physical vigor. His
many years' work with the microscope bad t
injured his eyes so that he was compelled
to use at all times a triplex glass of great (
power, which disfigured his appearance, £
but his commonplace face had then the
ruddy color of health. In tbe last six 1
months, however, owing perhaps to his be- ]
ing constantly in an atmosphere impregnat- 1
ed with tubercular bacilli, a shocking 1
change has taken place in his personal ap- J
pearanoe, and it is feared that he himself i
may Bnccumb to tbe disease he studied to (
vanquish. His complexion is pale and his
skin dry and parchment-like. His intimate 1
friends hope that it is only over-fatigue and
mental strain from which be suffers, but ~
they fear it is something worse. t
