C1L< * *'Je^lZwJfc .t. -,A ;*J CHRISTMAS IN JAMAICA. A Tropical Celebration With Santa Clam Left Oat. The white people of Jamaica celebrate Christmas in spirit rather than in active observance. Of course Santa Claus is unknown here, for what would Kris Kringle do in his fur raiment and with bis reindeers in a land where few Indeed of the people know what snow is and fewer still ever saw it Outdoor sport is out of tbe question, and even lawn tennis cannot be substituted for the skating and tobogganing of tbe north. Tbe white people sit or swing In hammocks under the cool shade of the palm trees and look with curious Interest over tbe holiday numbers of English and American magazines, with their strange pictures of snow scenes, and read tbe stories of Christmastide In the land of Kris Kringle and Jack Frost After sundown there are social gatherings, at which the guests sit out on the verandas, eat Ice cream, fan themselves and while away the evening with conversation and In that "sweet doing nothing" way that Is such feature of life In the tropics. Very many of the white people of Jamaica were born in the island and so know nothing of the Christmas customs of the north. But there are also quite a number of Americans and Britishers here, and these try various ways to get up a semblance of Christmas, but It is like the crew of a polar expedition celebrating Fourth of July while icebound In tbe Arctic circle, and their Christmas is mostly one of reminiscence. Still wintering in the tropics is not without Its compensating advantages, and although Christmas here is apt to be a pretty lonesome time to Americans, they are very ape to una cause for congratulation after the festive season is over In the fact that they are safe from the cold, the snow, the slush and the blizzards cf the north. YULETIDE IN AUSTRIA. RaatMu tad Ltteida of tfco Hra- , Oormaa Popolattoa. Tuletlde as kept by the non-German population of Austria is very picturesque. On Christmas day the Poles in Qalida first attend mass apd then sit town to family supper. The chief dish in the table contains consecrated eggs, which the father distributes. After eating. all eyes are closed and all heads bowed down to the table in the belief that Jacob's ladder is then descending from heaven to earth and down the ( ladder angels are coming to bless the worshipers and to carry away their earthly troubles to heaven. Among the Czechs the legend runs that he who most strictly fasts on Christmas ere trill see the holy Christ in his dreams that night In the evening the real celebration begins. All lights are then txtlnguished in the bouse; no fire, no light is visible. The children crowd together in fear and remain perfectly silent as otherwise they know they will receive none of the presents brought t>y the Christ Child and laid at the entrance of 1'i>e boose. The older females amuse themselves by throwing lea ted lead into water and gathering from the forms It uraumcs some hint is to the appearance of their future tiusbaods.?Pittsburg Dispatch. fcHRisi^ THE housewife wiil find no better suggestions for the Christmas spread than are contained in the following.

The Christmas goose, celebrated in soug and story, Is not very well known on this side of the water.
