THE GREAT IRON CROSS. b
? Ii
It was upon one of those good old days -]
3f nearly tour hundred years ago when s
lhat prince of bold buccaneers, Cortez, j
was grinding Mexico under his iron heels g
and sending his ships back laden with
treasures, and while all Spain was ring- t|
ing like a bell to the tune of his deeds, c
that the beginning of the circumstances f
tiappened. As to whether the ending j,
was due to a near miracle or pure chance /
fach must take his choice, but the way it a
ill happened was like this : Carlos de s
Montbar, grown old and gray as a silver f,
fox in adventures unon land and sea and t
listening with his ear to the ground the t
better to hear the rumbles from afar, arose, j,
saying to himself. t
"Cortezl Who, then, is he to be a t
worker of marvels which I cannot do ?
True, he has shaken the tree of conquest ji
first and many golden apples have fallen s
into his helmet, but in his haste has he e
not left as many more behind ? I will
follow in his steps, and with much less c
trouble than befell him gather those he j
has left behind, also becoming rich and ^
famous. I will take my two ships, sum- c
mon my men and sail to this land of s
gold." And thus having determined he f
assembled his crews, after which he t
sought out the good Padre Ferdinand. t
"Father," he said. "I have two as |
good ships as ever broke a wave and f
crews of whom even Satan himself is s
afraid. We are to sail to the wonderful j
land of Mexico and fill our holds with its <
treasures. But there will be storms to (
overcome, dying comrades to minister to i
and proper prayers for our success to be
said, therefore we cannot sail without a
priest. Be one of us as our holy advisor
and your share shall be next to mine." !
The priest smiled up at him. I
"Yes, you will need a priest, and there- <
fore I will go. But it is not the gold of *
these heathens that I wish, but merely i
their souls. May I claim them as my t
share ?" Montbar laughed loudly.
"As many as you can get. But how do I
you plan to snare such cunning things ?" 1
"Listen, and I will tell. Upon some !
mountain top from whence it may be seen I
from afar your men must build me a great I
mission. In front of Mis mission I wiil i
place a great magic lure, so that all see- i
ing it shall be drawn closer. And once I J
have them before it I shall talk to them |
01 inc iruc lauri umii unc uy unc nicy
shall embrace it that Christ may receive i
them. Thus in my keeping will be their I
souls. Am I not crafty, also ?" Montbar <
slapped his thigh. <
"Wondrous so, Father, and it is a good i
bargain for both of us?the souls for you
and the gold for me. But what is to be
the magic lure?"
"That, my son, you shall know in good
time. You say you sail in a fortnight. (
Upon the morning of your departure you
must send me 40 of your men to convey
it to the ship. You promise that ?"
"As many as you wish," Montbar
agreed.
And when the day of sailing came and ,
40 straining men hauled aboard one of
the ships a great cross made of iron,
Montbar walked about it in much awe. j
"By all the saints. Father," he said as he
crossed himself, "you have come prepared
to convert a universe "
"If the better the day the better the |
deed, why may it not as well be that the i
greater the emblem the greater the good?" '
Whereupon they made sail and disap- j
peared adown the western horizon. And |
from that day nearly 400 years ago until :
twelve months since no eye of man saw
sign or trace of them.
***** * * i
Up the Gulf of Mexico the oil barge
Crescent came wallowing tike a pig in
the trough of burly, rough and tumble
seas that ran over her like the slathering
tongues of monstrous brutes gone mad.
Deep down in her the engines clanked
and wheezed, while McArdle, the engineer,
scratched his head dubiously as he
watchedtheirspasmodiclaborings. "And
while by the grace of the Lord they may
last the trip out, I sometimes misdoubt it,"
he muttered. "For at any minute are
?h?w liahl* tn flv to flinders like the
wond'rus old ooe-horse shay."
And fly to pieces they did. With the
report of a gun a connecting pin snapped
asunder, and the next instant its rod had
jammed, while with the roar of a cannon
a cylinder head went crashing through a
bulkhead. In an instant the engine room
was deluged with live vapor, but with
one thrust of his arm the engineer shut
off the steam and halt fainting from bis
scalds went working his way forward between
seas to the bridge where Captain
Travers was clinging in a smother of
spume. "And its gone to glory they
have, sir," be reported, with a death's
head grin. Gray of face, Travers pointed
to the bar of Madre de la Laguna with
tcr.

"Then so have we along with them. H
)ur anchor will never hold on this bot- r
om, and we'll all eat Christmas dinner > >
omorrow in Davy Jones' locker." Rev- *
rently McArdle drew a small cross from M
is pocket, kissed it and replaced it while a
he captain looked on silently. s
"It will take a bigger cross than that to
ave us," he announced grimly. The ?
ngineer straightened his pain-twisted
ice.
"That may be, sir. Yet big and small, ti<
hat same token has saved many a man p<
nd 'tis my belief it will save many anther.
Leastwise, 'tis our only hope." es

All night long the Crescent, plunging th
ackward against her restraining cable as to
wild horse bucks against its tether, de
ragged the anchor closer and closer to m(
le seething bar where site must break th
er back, casting them all into a seething
ot, where neither man nor boat could In
urvive a minute At dawn ot Christmas re
lorning, with destruction but an hour th
way, Captain Travers summoned his th
ten before him. He pointed an ominous th
inger at the roaring bar now but a cable's ca
rngth away. p<
"My friends," said he, "In an hour gl
rom now it will all be over. This will to
e our last Christmas day. We have but th
ittle time in which to say our last words, th
herefore, what shall Ihey be?" From of
omewhere 'mong the despairing dozen
he hoarse voice of the engineer arose in
i croaking attempt at song.
"To thy cross I cling?" One by one C
hey joined their voices in a ragged ac- I
ompaniment of chorus that was torn of
rom their lips by the hurricane to be lost It'
n the ve I of the surf upon the bar. ol
Ind as their last words ceased their came
mighty tug upon the cable as if some th
iant oi the depths inconceivably vast th
lad seized the anchor and was holding b<
he ship fast against the drift. And as tii
hey saw that it diagged no more they at
ooked at each other, first in amazement, L1
hen with the joy ot men snatched from (j
he very jaws of death by a miracle.
The anchor has found its grip and is f
lolding," they told each other. Bui thai ^
uch good fortune could long continue ^
iach had but little faith. .
"Yet 24 hours later when the sea had j,
aLied they still found themselves riding ^
n safety. Then they gave the steam
vine h full power and gradually the anchor f,
:ame to the surface, still holding in its
[rip the object which it had found and
astened itself to so desperately. And as n]
he crew burning with curiosity bent over d
o gaze upon the mysterious thing which
lad preserved them, and which toot by
oot was being dragged from its bed Of tc

Christmas for the Birds.
Among the other delightful traits of the
Scandinavian people is their custom in E1
heir Yule festivities of thinking not only
}f the happiness of their little ones, but
M teaching these children to bear in
mind the happiness of others and in particular
of the animals about t em. C)
At the Yuletide season, we are told,
he market place of Christmas presents a
rery gay aspect, filled in as it is with C
tpruce trees of all sizes for the children's C
estiva I. But there is a feature in the b
Morse Christmas that I have not heard of "
n any other country in that in this market
olace there is for each Christmas tree a
luleneg, or little sheaf of barley; each
person who buys a tree also buys a sheaf. _!
rhen, when the tree is set up in the main
oom of the house at Yuletide for the f
jairn (horn, as they are called in Nor- 1
way) the sheaf of grain is fastened on the C
rnd of a pole and put out In the yard tor g
1 Christmas feast for the birds I
A tramp knocked at a farmer's door the 1
lay before Christmas and called for somehing
to eat.
"Are you a Christian ?" asked the good
learted man.
"Look at the holes worn in the knees
)f my pants. What do they prove ?"
The farmer's wife promptly brought
Dut the food and the tramp turned to go.
"Well, well!" asked the farmer. (
'What made those holes in the back of
your pants ?"
"Backsliding," replied the tramp as he
hurried on.

Why We Burn Candle*.
1 he custom ot burning candles on the
hristmas tree comes from two sources,
he Romans burned candles at the Feast
Saturn as a sign of good cheer, while
e Jews burned candles during the feast
the Dedication, which happened to fall
>011! the same time as that of Saturn in
e Roman calendar, it is quite possible
at for this reason there would have
ren many candles burning all over Ralesie
about the time ol the birth of Christ,
id Irom this comes the term "Feast of
ights," which is the name used in the
