Though under the miasmatic ( ii,th;( ii-- of swamp land, develoj.in in sumnier it-s routine of hilioiiH dis easis, yet winter fosmd the villagers in health and spirits equal to a keen :ipprcei:ition of ( 'hri.-tma.s fe.-ti vitics. I it one o f the county roads winding 'out from the village came in sight two little trudgcrs. Their-poor attire was procntable only in its exuii.-ite e'ean ! liness, from the washed-out blue o the little sister s (piltel liooti to inesn s H'ck-'iieeps from the worn shoes of the little brother. These were somebody's darlings, saerrd as were those Spartan jewels of old, to a waiting old grand mother. '1 heir small store of butter and eggs had been previously bargained for a pair of shofs, and a little sack of pop " corn was the anticipated means to ur-cha-e candy. They learned at fust inquiry that the store-keepi r was engaged about a Christmas tree in a house remote from the store, ami thither they repaired, and were admitted. The storekeeper came forward, re lieved them of their li.cht burden, and, absenting himself lor a short time, re turn d with the-shoes. No one seemed to take any notice of them except o"ne thoughtless uirl, who said, as she swept pat them with a lap full or wr anges: "1 thought no chihlren were to be admitted till to-nighL" What a novel spectacle of beauty was that Chti-tn.as tree to their eyes of wonderment and eaucrni ! Atmot reaching the ceiling was a towering evergreen ; pendant from ev- rrv twig were tarletoti sucks starred with gilt, yielding tempting glimi ses of rose and w hite mold of French can- .'ties - lr-iv pictured cornucopias over- tb.wing their plenteous ..tores oi nuts and clu-tcts of flesh raisins, and the larger limb- ornammtcd with drums and doll-babies. There were continually new faces entering, with jeweled hands clasping bundles and fancy boxes, mingling gay voice w ith the merry, busy crowd, clustering around the already burden ed tree, all of which formed a scene so tempting to the delighted vWoii of the children, that only the closing of dior and regaining the outer world again told litem that the afternoon had come unaware'. They tunud homeward, those two. than whom had nevet throbbed in hu man hearts more boyish heroism or girlish M-lf-acrilice : they turned honHw:frd from that phasureeking throng w ith not -oimndi as one orange or sugared bon-bon to h-seii the pangs of poverty and hunger nigging at their poor little heartstrings. 'Now, grandma w ill. b so proud of lur new shoe. said the Poy, as lie noted on the little w an face beside him i look of such griev. d disappointment. "U 1 des had one orange for lur I wouldn't a .and, itobin, and you would beeif , proud of one of dem red drums with de tawsels." "See tii snow '.lakes. Wreitk !" said Robin, making a hasty step or two forward, trying to grasp the gossamer bits in assumed gUe, but with a heart ready to overflow in boyish tears. "I'll finish my sled to-night, and. with the ,.nv Wmissed in, we will have a sleigh-ride to-morrow, and after all, a ; jolly Christmas. "We'll have to hurry S home now, before the snow gets deep, 1 for you'll get cold." He glanced down j at his own almost bare feet that already began to tingle. ' Yes, ,f, replied the little sister, imitating the brightness I of her brothers face, "and we'll be ! good like grandma tells us, and take 1 some of dem folks to ride what wouldn't j div us nothiug, won't us, Robin ?M He I nodded pleasantly in return, and they ' both hastened as fast a tHeir limbs ! could bear them, for not only the snow I was falling fast, but a keen wind be gan to whistle an unwelcome dirge I through the almost leafless forest limbs j above them. It was only two miles . to their home, and in dry seasons was 1 a straight, plain way. But winter ! rains hadTsubmerged a shallow slough, through which they usually passed on foot. Here they paused, for tht wagon tracks winding around the circuitous marsh, which had been their guide, were entirely covered by the snowy vestment, rapidly and silently folding on the gray form of nature. Robin stood and thought for a min ute. "f ) t I reckon we'll go all right. Come Wrenie, grandma is making sausage for supper, we must hurry home." "Robin, I am awful hungry; dey is so good r dest can't wait." The Christmas tree and all behind them were forgotten in the severity o their surroundiiTgs and the great de- They had gone perhaps a mile, when Robin realiztd they were wrong. He concluded not to retrace his steps, but thinking he knew the way, turned to his sinter, -who was forcing her little body along with great effort. "I am des trying with all my might and main to go fast, but I des I can't go no fudder." "Yes, and I'm going to cary you, Wr-nie.". Robin was not cold, except his feet, but the thought of putting on his grand ' mother's shoes was rapidly carried in ' to action, and lifting Wren in his arms I he began the toilsome journey at right j angles with his former course, in hopes I to reach the road above the slough. Af ter a time his precious burden became I too heavy, and his labored breathing ; an -I Hushed face made Wren's kind : little heart suggest to walk again. He lifted heron a stump and rubbed her chubby hands till they were soft and warm, which increased the sluggish circulation of his own. "Now, Wrenie, if you get on my back I can go ever so fast." Then the brave little fellow made first rate progess, but alas! it was only to bear them that much further from home, it broke upon him in crushing bitterness as a large bayou wound out in full view before him. Rut still he did .not break through tnat overmas tering heroism as natural to his boy heart as is strength in the embryonic fibers woven in the acorn's cup. Much higher along the water side the snow j had fallen but sparsely there, render- ! ing the footing better, and he stood j his sister on her feet to rest himself, i preparatory to a fresh sart. Unusual j to her wonted prattling way, Wren had become e the oppression of difliculties, yet trust- ing her brother, who was several years older. Robin knew to follow the bayou would take him further from home, yet as dim tracts of a road were visible he thoughtMt might be the means of meeting some one. The large stream shot its swift length along now as straight as the arrow sped from the red man's quiver,- then rounding as the bend of his bow. (Jrceii-erested wild ducks glided Jin piaeidgrace or grouped in picturesque clusters am d the oasis of lily-foliage dotting the rippling waters. The banks above were sentineleei by giant cypress towering skyward, waving in the win try winds the sheer verdancy of their tufted plumes. The palmetto opened its prim fans in Quaker-like precision, and circling the open wood of oak and fish wert dense plaited thickets of cane, serving as covert dens for the panther and bear. Last, looming up on the wild, scene of nature through which the ehi!lrcn were slowlv trudging, were vast stacks of split timber, neat and symmetrical even in their rough state. These, the work of honest hard working Germans, were stacked on the banks of the bayou, which, at the . , .1 . i.i . .1 thence shipped as stave wood, to Eur ope. " Al! the work of the stave men!" aid Robin in a kind of shout, tremu lous with tears that eeuirsed down his cheeks; It was getting late, he was j numbed, and his sister so hungry "Do dem stave-men work close to home?" asked the oor patient baby, as she yearned for the dear old grand ma's arms at home. "They would let us ride in their wag on if they saw us," Robin replied Tin a soothing, evasive waj-. On and on, and further on, and no trace of human habitation, and at last the stopping place came in the last pile of lumber, for the road wound off from the stream into the woods and was hid den with snow. By the side of the lumber they sat down together. Wren yet trusting, ! Robin yet brave, though hope within ! him lay frozen dead. This was his little sister, around whom had centered the most golden aspirations of his twelve years. His little sister, without mother, fa ther or sister to whom he had meant to be all ; his little sister, innocent, loving and self-sacrificing, even in ba byhood, lost in the snowstorm to die. "Yet," thought he, "freezing is th easiest death to die, I, have always heard, and I will tell her." "My deiar little sister, we have come a long, cold walk, but let me tell you, this is the way to Heaven ; we will go there to-night." "Are us, Robin?" "Yes, Wrenie." "I thought folk ses got ick and died "Rut we are just going to sleep in each other's arms, and when we wake up wewili be with mother and rather, in Heaven." "And will grandma come too?" .' "Yes, when she finds out we are gone." "Well, let's go to sleep, Robin." . The poor boy gathered lus little sis ter to his breast, kissed her again and again ; with their little arms around each other, with cheek pressing cheek, they sat silent and waiting for death, that King of Terrors, before whom many stout hearts of experience and age have quailed in fear. Oneby one of the night-stars had slipped out from behind the waning snow-clouds, and skone above them in glittering twinkles. The Christmas- eve moon slowly rose and wove her most amber glints, while the snow crystals pondered over them, till fhe wrap of ethereal gossamer, starred with a million jewels, was meet for the forms in Paradise. But hark ! The rumbling and creak ing approach of sounds, then human voices, and finally a wagon with its unwiedly yet sure ox-team, drove up and stopped before those lost babes in the wood, on the verge of Heaven's j opening portals. It was the stave-men, returning from the station with their Christmas pres ents. When they stood bending over the still, pitiful objects before them, there welled up from latent depths that exquisite dumb melody of divine ten derness toward innocent weakness heard in the heart of mankind alone. Without words they were lifted in to the wagon, and while one man touched up "the team, the other held the two under his great coat, close to hjis breast, with only the sparks of life wjithin to distinguish tlcsh from clay, Only a short distance and the rough dwelling, which served as- their tern- porary home, was reached ; huge piles of ash logs, in an ample nrplacc. burned warmlr. that tluntr a lurid trlare over an apartment conductive to com - fort; and marked with that distinguish- ing order and cleanliness proverbial to j those of the "Fatherland." i Several of the men had remained in j .the village, ene at home, serving as i baker, who was in the act ef lifting a ! pan of smoking white rolls from the oven as the snow storm partly enteml. ? To resuscitate the almost frozen children was the tiniteel efiort of all ; the Ikv first, as he was the nearer gone.

Man v of our custom nr.. so 1 that we cannot trace them, but others we can. For example, shaking hands. This is supposed to have originated in the days of chivalry. If two knight join- ed their hand, of course they were rendered unable to draw and use their swords against each other-friends, ami no longer enemie. Lifting' the hat is another custom that no doubt had a military origin. In old times soldiers wore helmets, to remove the helmet was to put the head at the mercy of another -in other words, to show trust and confidence in te honor of the other party. ' Af.P a ,,.,it., ... lift it... I.... . originated aC tournaments. All the knights w ho had ridden, as they jessed the lady .who had been chosen Queen of Love aid Beauty, raised their hand to tlje eyes as if to shield the sight from the dazzling lowliness of the Queen. "Cooii by" is a form of th old and fuller expres.sion, "God be with thee," as "fare thee well and "gool morning," or T wish you a good morning." 'Rowing to another is also a remnant of military days. Win n cm- army conquered anotlu r , the computers se lected the chief of the vanquished side; or .-ome of the principal legions or reg iments, and made them p:es umbra spear laid aeioss tv o otlu i planted in in the ground. Bending the head iu, therefore, a sort of sign of Jiumility before the person bowed to. Now-a- i M j days.it is a formal act,. and signifies only deferencejuid politeness. In "oilier countries other modes of salutation and show ing politeness ex ist. For instance, in some lands, two persons meet, drop down ii their knees, and touch their no-e together! It would be very rude to i nee fa friend and not touch your nose to his; he would feel that you did not care for him any longer. In erlicr days and irtfrKastern lands, persons used to fall kown on their faces before others if they wished to show them great respect. Customs are queer things, but it m well to observe all proper ones ami if it they are evil to try and correct them. The Dispcrfsary. Tut: Pi.iia phi Sor.M Hr.Aini.
