"We're Tenting To-night" | School i PRINCE OF PEACE By GRACE R. OLIN (E?. 1522. by McClure N'eunpapor Syndicate. Little Mrs. Burton pinned a stray white curl back of liT oar securely. "I declare,'' she whispered, pulling her sluiwl around her shoulders with an excited little gesture, "if Miss Taylor ainft outdone herself this year in decorating her winders." "Merry Christmas. Mrs. Burton," Mrs. Tucker, thc4andlnd.v, advanced In to the room. "Ain't It cleared off right pleasant now? Did you ever see so many stars, or such a moon?" Her round face beamed with joy, for little Mrs. Burton was a favorite with her. "Mrs. Burton," she continued, lower ing her voice, "Mr. Burton don't sus pect nothing, and I thought I'd take this chance, before he comes In. to tell you T sent Joe up with wood and coal, and he'll have a fire going so as it will be warm when you get there. "And the pies and things you baked yesterday, along with the groceries you ordered. I had him take along. Ain't Miss Taylor's winders gorgeous?" "1 was Just admiring 'eni when you onme In, Mrs. Tucker," answered little Mrs. Burton happily. "And I wish you a Merry Christmas, too," slie added. "I don't know how I can ever begin to thank you for nil your kindness to me." The wrinkled old hand patted the other woman's shoulder tenderly. "Making it possible for me to spend Christmas in my old home, and send ing jot? to get it ready for me. Why. 1 .loin know what to say. Mrs. "liu'Wr, 1 Ilon't. Seems as if everything Is g<? .'r;g t?> come out all right after all, don't It. If," (littlo Mrs. Burton's ehiii trembled for a moment) "If only the Prince of Peace run come into I David'.-. heart. "There, there. npw," Mr'. Tucker j drew the slender little form elose to j her for a moment. She knew as well as she whole town knew the sorrow j 1 1 1:1 1 tilled the gentle soul of little Mrs. I P.urton. She knew that .Mary, the shy, j sweet little daughter of David P.urton,! had slept this many a year 'neath the maple trees, and Tom, gay laughing i Tom. had run away supposedly to war. | and that nothing had been heard of him f??r nearly two years. ltuuior had it that Tom was in prison and finally that report had spread all over town. "Mother." the tirey old man had told his wife, "Torn is dead to us forever, l.et us never mention him again." And the mother, knowing his wound ed pride, had kept her silence, hard though it was. When the winter days had come, David Burton, alarmed at her frailness, had elosed the little white house on the hill, and taken her to the friendly shell *r of Mrs. Tucker's home. He had hoped the rest and compan ionship of others would help her for get. hut David Kurt on did not reckon the depths of a mother's love. She wanted her own little kitchen, all the dear familiar things that were Iters. So at last, when the glad season of Christmas was come, she could stand it no longer. Davhl would never consent she knew, so with the en couragement and aid of Mrs. Tucker, she. planned the event tliut was to satisfy the longing of her heart; she would spend Christmas at home. She was almost happy as she baked her pies In Mrs. Tucker's spacious kitchen. "There, there, now." Mrs. Tucker wiped a tear from her own eye. "We ain't got no time to feel sad, honey. Mr. Burton Is likely to be here any time. "Lou won't be needing my company, Mrs. Burton," shfe said, and for a moment a strange light shone on the ruddy features of Mrs. Tucker. "And Mrs. Burton," she added, "It's going to be the happiest Christmas you have ever known." By the table David Burton stood, his wife's note In his hand. "Dearest David," said this note, "I | can't stand It any longer. I am going | home to spend Christmas with the memories of my children, and you, my husband, you will come, too?" David Burton had slipped Into his great coat, his fierce old eyes wet. "I didn't know It was as bad as that, deax\" he. said under his breath'. w?y up the hill he overtook J her. "I'm sorry, Klleu," he told her. hut she stopped hiui with a glad little laugh. "W e're going home, David," she re | minded him. "and we mustn't he sorry i for anything." Little Mrs. Iiurt on stood quite still, her hand reaching out for l?avid's. i'orj suddenly, every window <>t' the little j white house was ablaze with light. i "l?avid." she said, and her voice! sounded strange to her own ears, "see. I in Tom's room, the three candles hum." And out of the glory two pairs of ( dim eyes saw a door open, and out I of it est me the trim figure of a young ! man ? a young inun in khaki, with a j stripe or two on his sleeve, and a i medal on his breast. "Merry Christinas, mother." cried a < glad young voire as little Mrs. Burton was swept into his arms. "Merry Christmas, dad." He wrung the old man's hand. "You see. I was in prison, but it was a Herman prison, and they just let nie out." With an arm about each he passed with them through the merry cheering group into the little white house. Out on the midnight air rang the holy, glad bells of Christmas. The Prince of Peace had come! Trees in Winter. In winter evergreens add a welcome bit of color if used in moderation, the coniferous evergreens in the North, like | the pines, spruces and cedars, or j broad-leaved evergreens of the South, ; like the evergreen magnolia, the hoi- j lies and the cherry laurel, says the American Forestry Magazine. But it ia not nlone in winter that the dark green foliage of these trees Is of ad vantage in the landscape, for they greatly enhance the attractiveness of the changing foliage of maples and oaks on the approach of cold weather. Bright red or yellow leaves become much more attractive if seen In con trast with the dark green foliage of evergreens. Landscape in Fall. The autumn landscape may be made as attractive as the spring landscape If the plantings are made with this object In view. About the home at tention should be given to planting for next season along with that for other seasons, as the average home is occupied for 12 months in the year, says the American Forestry Magazine. Because flowers are scarce in the fall many people have not thought of the possibility of making their home sur roundings especially attractive at this season of the year. It can be accom plished. however, even on quite small places by using appropriate plants. STAIRCASE UNIQUE IN DESIGN Los Angeles Museum Has One of the Most Remarkablo Specimen* Known to th? World.
