HKISTMA8 airalnt heigho, my lass, How siwift the silent seasons pass! . The plans we made but yestermorn These same swirt years have laughed to scorn: The ship whereon our hopes set sail Hath seldom met friendly cale; The haven where our longings bide Is still upon the farther side. But. thank the Lord! tlme-s wisdom turned Its glow upon us when we learned That bare rooms bloom beneath the toucn Of love that makes the little much. Christmas again; our babes at play Bring back the vanished years this day; Tea, glaj am I that fate's decrees Denied us gold to give us these. And you, whose patient love hath lent A tender grace to banishment The realm we mlsstd hath naught so dear To me as your fair presence here. So do I bless the seasons urned, Wherein two hearts the lesson learned That bare rooms bloom beneath the touch Of love that makes the little much. Frank Putnam, In Chicago Times-Herald. ' is T WAS the close of. ' a day in the early part of December. The governor sat alone in his private office. His clerk had just left him. The Christmas season was a busy and responsible one with him, for he chose that time to investigate thoroughly the criminal rec ords of the state and pardon such pris oners as good conduct or extenuating icircumstanees placed within the pale of executive clemency. If questioned as to his selection of :the holiday season for the exercise of the "benign prerogative" he was wont 'to answer: "Oh, I may be helping to jturn the tide In the eoul of some Paul, iand I have a fancy to do it when peace land good will are most likely to be at ;th flood; that is all." Whether this were all, and it were not In response to some deeper sentiment those who knew mm best alone could ; To-night, as he looked at the piles of mail matter on Jiis desk yet to be dis posed of. he pushed back his chair with a smothered groan and started to the door, moved by a wild impulse to get outside and turn the key on it all An obstruction in his path caused him -to stumble, and he saw a curious-look. ilng bundle in brown paper, clumsily tied with a coarse twine string, lying on the floor at his feet. He remembered the clerk's having mentioned a package from the state prison this must be it and pushed ;it Impatiently to one side; but as he did so something in the coffin-shaped outlines made him stoop and tear away ' a part of the cover. Tie found, to his nmazp.ment, a violin and appended to it a soiled pencil-writ ten note, evidently an appeal of some kind. Curiosity conquered fatigue. He had handled many and various petitions, but never one in shape like this. Detaching the note from its fasten lugs, he crossed the room to the win dow, and by the waning light of the winter's day deciphered the following illiterate text: "To the Ouvner: They tel me thet yer Hart gits tender to rrlifiera at chrlsmns time and you listeria to what they has to say.

He lifted the violin carefully from the floor,' tore away its wrappings arni- looked at it long and curiously.' It was roughly made of native pine and maple and varnished with the homemade var nlsh. of the mountains, but the strings gave back the true viol tone, clear and rlmfing. Bring-In j iri chair closer to the grate, he placed the instrument in. positio. drew the bow. and there "an the still of the evening let her talk to him." He was a mountain boy himself, ana as the first 6oft notes fell on the air, plaintive and piercing like the cry of the whippoorwill in early spring, he felt the youth stir in him and heard again the far call of the hills. He saw the log cabin high up against the side of the mountain, where the laurel and the sumac grew and the psh made brigh t the scene with its dark fruit; where the breeze came laden with the odor of pine from the forest, and the birds touched the highest notes in their shrill treble. He saw the boy with his sturdy limbs, his bold blue eyes and his waving hair, barefoot and scantily clad, searching for the earliest berries In summer and the first nuts in the fall free, joyous, innocent, happy. He followed him In the "long, long thoughts" of a lad across the distant crest of the "Devil's Backbone" and wove with him mystic dramas amid the shades of the haunted ravine. He sat with him at the feet of the mountain lass and listened while he poured the crude poetry of his awak ened soul into the sensitive instrument which alone could interpret the mys tery within him. ne stood beside him and watched the blazing pine knots roar up the cabin chimney, while the old folks in the cor ner loftked at each other across the boy with that surreptitious tenderness of the eyes which takes place In those grown gray, and sure oi eacn otner, oi the more open demonstration. ne saw the whole 22 years of clean, humble liviDg; the unaspiring, pastoral life of the southern mountaineer, com panioned of nn.ture; simple, fearless, brave; scornful of the false, reverent of the true; tender to weakness, fierce to wrong; and, alas! uncontrolled as the elements around him; crushing, in some mad output of strength, the obstacle in his way, to stand afterwards in awful recoil before the unknown potentiali ties of his own organism. Full and swelling were the strains that issued from the throat of the violin as It told this idyl of the hills; passion ate harmonies pulsating like the over charged heart; long, tender, yearning notes; sweet, caressing adantes; the very spirit of love in the guise of sound. Beaching a trembling hand out toils dumb friend as though for confidence, he whispered, hoarsely: : ! "Guvner, what did ebe tell you fer me? What did my old fiddle tell you?" The governor waited for a moment, perhaps to steady his voice; then, lay ing both hands on the shoulders of the other, his eyes reading with' a father's tenderness the piteous, expectant face, he said: "Abner, she says the old fiddle says that you can go back to the moun tains. And, my man, may God go with you!" The convict stood for a moment like one struck dumb, a womanish pallor overspreading his cheek; then, with a cry which his listener neverforgot.be threw his arms around his liberator and sobbed like a heartbroken child. And the governor was not ashamed to admit that something tightened in his throat and broke out at his eyes, too. Nora C. Franklin, In Lippincott's Maga zine. ITS TRUE SPIRIT, Chrtntmna the Fentlvnl of Child hood. Christmas is the festival of childhood. Whoso would enjoy it truly must be in heart even as a little child. Its ecstasies are in self-forgetfulness, In the better ment of others. Its highest celebration is in helping our neighbors to be happy and thus sharing our happiness with them. There is no happiness compar able to love, and the happiness grows greater as the love embraces more and more our fellow-beings. That is the best Christmas time in wh,ich one feels most acutely the actuality of kinship with all the world. It is the child that is the real democrat, for, as Emerson has it, he makes children of all the adults that gather around him, levels them to his own simplicity. The man who has the childiheart is the man whose interest in himself via most merged into interest for his fellow creatures. Though one may have felt sin ,and shame and sorrow he may as suage them all in the promotion of the happiness of others. Love is the only anodyne, and giving it out it returns upon us as manifold as the objects upon whicb it is bestowed. That man who awakens the Christmas spirit, in ' the hearts about him will find it subtly stealing from them to his own, and HOW TO FIND OUT.

Note dashes against note like hail against a pane. All the tumult of the mountains, the forest, the roaring stream when storms rive the heavens, is sounded in that mad chro matic ascending to its climax. All of nature's after-pennance breathes in the sighing minor of the descending scale. Surely that was a human sob that rang through the room; fellew mortal's burst of sympathy. No, it was just the old fiddle, who "knew things 'cause she'd been lyin' so long ag'in his heart." And now from out her quivering strings she sends forth a melody so di- nely pure, so immeasurably sweet, the coldest ear must open to greet it. In it are the prayers of mothers, the tears of wives, the sobs of little chil dren all of unlanguaged pain, all of unlanguaged love. It is the echo of that song which beats forever against the throne of God, in tender, tireless cadence the united voices of many women pleading for the souls of men. The violin slips from the governor's hands and his head sinks upon his breast. The old fiddle has "told her story straight." will, almost unknowing, find bitter dis possessed by sweet, and warmth usurping cold therein. This world is very fair and charity makes it all the fairer when its glow reminds us of "the long, long night that death shall last." Christmas feeling makes the most of the now. It atones for the after the deluge or the dark. It is real life to live, if but for a week, a day,.a moment, in full sympathy of helping with our fellows. If we can make others forget the past we may forget our own. If we can but give to others a little of the antidote of kindliness for the poison of the present we shall find our own to-day less hopeless. And the future is formed of the spirit that animates to-day. Tbe real feeling of Christmas must blossorr into acts. Detroit Free Press. When witnesses were found who cor roborated the statements of the pris oner, and jail wardens certified to 20 years of exemplary behavior inside the prison walls, the governor sent for Ab ner Hill to be brought to his private office. The day he expected him he placed the violin in a conspicuous position on the desk. There was ushered into 2iia pres ence a tall, angular man with the worn face and stooping shoulders of three score years; hair scanty, muscles flab by, eyes dull; nothing to bespeak youth but the faint red that crept Into his sunken cheek when the servant an nounced his name. A single stroke of sin and its after-writing on the brain htd done the work of twice 20 years. ne 6tood Inside the door with down cast eyes and nervous, fluttering hands. The governor called his name, and something in the kindly accents gave him courage to look up. Something else in the homely, hu morous face that no man ever looked Into without lovlngr ffave him courage to peak, and his eye caught sight of tne violin. A Chrlatmna Truth. Ir you the merriest Christmas would enjoy, If you the deepest happiness would feel, A genuine Jollity without alloy, A happiness continuous and real, Though paradoxical, I will agree, 'Tls yet a truth that no one can gainsay. The greater will your own enjoyment be The more the happiness you give away. Boston Courier. Oat of Sennon.
