There were live ot them HI Mary ana Jimmie sou I the twins and baby Bell, I and they were orphans and I very poor, and it was the I day before Christmas. The live Hens stoppeu In front of a big house. "Now slna," said Mary Bell, and the five sweet voices were upraised: "Merry, merry Christmas everywhere, Cheerily It ringeth through the air." aang all the little Bells, with red noses and blue lingers, aa they tamped their feet and ahlvered In the snow. The door of the big house opened and a pompous servant came out and shook his finger at them. "Go away," he said, "go away! We don't want you howling around here." "Oh!" gasped the little Bells, and away they flew, with Mary Bell bring ing up the rear, as ahe wiped the tears from her eyes, for she was the oldest, and at home there waa nothing to eat and no fire, and she didn't know what they would do. They aang before other places un til their throats were sore, but every one was to busy or too selfish to listen; and 'the night waa coming on when at last they limped into the grounds of a dark old mansion that stood far back from the lonely road. In this mansion lived a bachelor, which Isn't an ogre, although It is something like one, for bachelors haven't any children, and they are apt to forget that they were ever young, and sometimes they are very fierce. The bachelor was all alone. He had sent his servants away to keep their Christmas at their homea, and he was In the loneliest room in the lnncilv hnimn. The Bells sang two songs before he moved. He drew back the curtain. "Oo away," he motioned. They turned to go out of the gate, but when they reached It Baby Bell stumbled and sat down and then she cried, and the other four cried a for lorn little group, for they were all so tired and cold and hungry that they didn't care what happened. "O, by George," said the bachelor, watching them. "By George, they are nothing but babies " and he ran down stairs and out Into the snowy path. "What's the matter?" he demanded. "No one wants to hear ua sing,'" sobbed baby Bell. "Huh!" said the bachelor, gruffly. "I do." But Mary just looked at the bachelor with eyes that reminded him of days of long ago, and suddenly he found himself holding her band and talking eagerly. "Come in," he urged, "where it ia warm, and sing to me there." The lonely room waa not lonely any more when the five little Bells stood In a row in front of the fire, which the bachelor poked into blazing bright ness. They sang with a will, and the bachelor clapped his hands, and then took out his purse. "Here," he said to Mary, and hand ed her a dollar. But Mary shook her head. "It Is too much," she said. "Ton must give us a penny apiece for each song, for that Is all that it la worth. We can't alng very well. We are not beggars." "By George," said the bachelor. "By George! I believe you are haJf starred." Then he looked at Mary. "Can you cook?" he asked. "Tea, Indeed," cried all the little Bella. "I need a cook," said the bachelor, with twinkling smiles. "I haven't any one to cook my Christmas dinner, and If you don't take pity on me I shall have nothing." "Shall I begin now?" asked Mary, eagerly. "I ahould love it." "I haven't anything in the house," aid the bachelor. "But, there la the telephone." . "Ia a telephone good to eatr asked baby Bell. "No," said the bachelor, "but It's fine to talk Into. Now take oft your things and atay with me." "O, Tm afraid we will be a trou ble," said Mary, uncertainly. "Will your mother worry r asked the bachelor. , "We haven't any mother," laid Mary. "We are orphans, and we are all alone." "That settle tt" aald the bachelor. "Ton are to stay." And he went to the telephone and ordered everytuing from turkey to tart and from plum pudding to plea. It waa the jolUest Christmas era, and the Jolllest peraoa of all was the lonely bachelor, because be waan't lonely any more, and there war chil dren ia the boos to make Christmas what It should be.

Baltimore apple bread was a favor ite accompaniment to duck in the old ante-bellum days, and In many old Maryland families still finds abundant appreciation. To make it, rub through a pound of sifted and warmed bread flour, two-thirda of a cup of butter and three heaping tableapoonfuls sugar. Dissolve half a compressed yeast cake In a cup of milk that has been scald ed and cooled to lukewarm. Add to the flour and mix to a stiff batter. Add again three eggs well beaten and beat the batter until it blisters. It need be very stiff. Cover and let rise over night in a warm place. In the morning It should be nearly doubled in bulk. Divide In two por tions and roll out In cakes about half an inch thick. Spread one with rather tart apple sauce, cover with the other and let them rise together about half an hour, then bake In a moderate oven until well done. Aa soon aa taken from the oven spread with more well cooked and sweetened apple sauce, dredge lightly with sugar, . sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon, and set back in the oven long enough for the sugar to mu r" Comfort In Kitchen. In every kitchen there should be a very high chair and a very low one. Economy of strength la true wisdom on the part of a worker, and much standing and constant fatigue and sometimes actual illness may be avoided by the use of proper chairs. Plain ironing, mixing of pnddlnga, and many other taski may be done aa well when sitting on high chair or atool ai when standing; and the low chair li useful for sitting in to shell peas or string currants, when it -la con venient to have a bowl In one'a lap, and another bowl or baaket on th floor beside one.
