Mr.. Bondage was a chalmuak er, and when he cume homo from -bis iron works ho always seemed to bring his business with bim. The1 house of Bondage was big and strong, but lt was bard, and still, and dark, and too -orderly. From the outside it looked. Uko a fort, and inside, thc chairs stood at attention, like soldiers. Tho par?, lor was a solemn pince, where the stiff furniture was seldom prevented from looking at Itself in tho gilded mirror. The dining room didn't get the sun until towards evening, when the motto, "Be Good and You Will Be. Happy" could be ns plainly seen ns the one on tho opposite wall, "Chil dren Should Be Seen but Not Heard." When the boy put <m his bated bib there, lt exhorted him with, "Don't Eut Too Much." Chained to the front porch was on Iron dog, whose fixed and ferocious snarl was a standing Insult to all tho village' dogs that could get through the Iron fence to dispute with him. There was some fun, about the place; lt was when n surprised dog -retired from the attack with a new respect for the tough guardian of the Bondage In terests. Even the iron-clad knight In the front hall seemed to laugh, through his visor then, j Besides nil this, Ishmael had had no Christmas. Mr. Bondage did not be lieve In Christmas; to him Santa Olaus was a foolish imagination and a hurtful superstition. He had joined "The Society for the Prevention* of Useless Giving," and was glad to bo called a Spug. . On December 25th he had presented to his son a picture of himself, standing In front of his ofllco with the scowl upon his face that rep resented his Iden of the expression of greatness, but the only comfort of the day for the boy had been the sweet' contents of the small package that his mother had smuggled into his room Just before daylight. But Ishmael Bondage had an Aunt Sarah I And Aunt Sarah had tho pleasantest home In the country. It was a low. wide, rambling old house, ip the midst of the trees and hugged by the climbing vines that loved it.

That was the bright spot for Ishmael. When he went out there lils aunt would, hang his Fauntleroy suit up lu tho closet .and give him a leather 'suit that could not be torn and tell him to go it. He could cat without a bib and there was not a motto In sl.;ht. By tho time that vacation was over he was n reol boy. The other boys stopped calling him "Sissy" and no longer asked him If hin mother knew he was out. Indeed, he up and thrashed a bullying boy who had knocked over ono of his compan ions who was about half his size. Af ter this there was nothing that he could not have among his crowd. So, every .vacation sent a prim but Jorful hoy to Aunt Sarah and closed With a more robust but rather dejected one on his way born?, , But Aunt Sarah also had a mind of her own. She had so much mind that she had concluded that winter to go and. give Benjamin Bondage a pieco O? it.7 She considered Ishmael's stato and situation and resolved to give his father "a good talking to." When she. appeared Mr. Bondage felt that his time 'had probably come. When she had finished he know lt had. She told him that he had forgotten that he was ?ver a hoy, If, Indeed, lie bad ever been' one, that he had made himself Into an Iron man, that he was blind eyed afed hard-hearted, thnt he seemed determined to fasten all lils chains up sou Ishmael aud make his ron as stiff and cold! ns np Icicle. Mrs. bondage, behind tho door, ex pected her husband to object In loud tand angry tones, but, to her astonish ment, ho was silent. Ile seemed to reifibmber an old motto, "Discretion Is the Better Part of Valor,", profitably, and did-pot interfere, even when Aunt Sarah, flushed, but triumphant, carried .Ishmael off. There was some winter play left and tb come nt Sweetfleld, hut Aunt Sarah wasn't 'satisfied as easily as that, for she had innde up tho rest of her mind Into nu Iden that ishmael should have tho Christmas that ho hadn't had, af ter all. It wasn't much of a Christmas Vday when the belated Christmas tree blossomed and bore fruit, bu* lt was a flue tree. The snow and Ice had dis appeared and a warnt wind made the Inte winter seem like early spring, but Aunt Sorell said that evergreen trees kept Christmas all the year round, and that every day* was their day. Cer? "A Wonderful Pocketknife-" tolnly lt was the tnost interesting tree that Ishmael had ever seen, from tho bundle at the bottom, through nil tho ornaments, .lights and gifts, to the mys i drove's Tasteless chill Tonic restores I Energy and Vitality hy Purifying and Enriching tho Blood.

''Aunt Sarah said afterwards timi nt this sbo near ly "went off tho handle." When May came lt seemed time for Ishmael to go home, but he was not very happy at the prospect. Indeed, he was rath 9? unhappy about it. Ile felt something like one on his way to Jail, und1 even shed tears at Ute thought of leaving Sweet field, so that a squirrel, seeing him wiping his eyes, under a tree, exclaimed "Oh, what a ruiny boy I" but the day came and Ishmael went. . . . Anolbor surprise awaited him, how ever, for, as he neared homo and en tered it, everything seemed changed. The house lookedj sunny and pleasant in its new colors, the fence had disap peared, the Iron dog had been jnoved to the barn, and the malled knight had gone down to the ironworks to bo turned into plowshares. When Mr, Bondage went out to Swectfleld to visit his sister and to report upon Ishmael's progress, Aunt Sarah had her reward. "It ls all your doing, Soi ali," said he. Ul needed soineo?e to show me ftp to1 myself." "Well, brother," sold Aunt Sarah, "A Stitch in Time Saves Nine," as tho proverb bas lt, and you certainly will be proud of our boy yet, as proud of him os I am of my big, now brother," When December came blustering nroimd again and brought Santa Claus and all bis load of love and Jollity, there was no place thnt(moro warmly Welcomed him than Mount Freedom, as Mr. Bondage's home bad come to be called, and of all the happy Christ mas parties of ? that year, nono was fuller of mirth and good cheer than the one tit Mount Freedom. They danced about the tree ond under the motto that hung from the top. of lt with its message of good will to every body, the- football was kicked all over the floor and they shouted In their glee. The squeaking toys, the tooting whistles, tho Im-ppy* songs, ail made the time as merry as it ought always to bc, while tho gifts spoke messages of love. , Ishmael had prospered enough in his studies to make a picture of Sweet field, lt hung over the mantel shelf in the living room and under it he had written, "The Home of tho Green Christmas." When anyone asked him about lt /ie would tell them how spring once came in a wintry tlmje; bo would say that. while Christmas comes but once a year, lt sometimes comes twice, and that whenever it comes it brings good cheer ; but he was never able to make, a picture of his Aunt Snrah that seemed to him good enough.
