i a dream I wns transported into the
Id that lies beyond—the beautiful heav
>pened to all mankind by the blessed
Ist child.
jat hell lies uraierneath heaven yon
a doubtless heard. Naturally the holy
oead see and hear nodhing of the pains of
(the lost, for that wouSd entirely spoil the
I joys of paradise for tbem, but now and then
| —I believe oooe a year—lt Is given to the
blessed to look down into hell. There is,
however, one condition. in particular at
tached to this privilege. When the dome
'which conceals hell f sight nf tbe
angels la opened, it is for. the relief of tbe
i God in his mercy has decreed that the
saints shall look down into the abyss in
lorder to tell St. Peter if they Bee among
the damned any one from whom they have
received'any benefit or of wihom tbey have
even heard any good. If theikeepcr of heav
tsn's gate is pleased with thegenerousacrion
(which the lost soul performed while on
worth, he-has the power of shortening the
|tiiue of (punishment cr can even pardon it
El together and bid it enter into paradise.
As for|me, I arrived iv paradise ou a day
hen hetl was opeo to view-and came to
now thereby many strange tilings.
I It was granted to me to look into the
place of torsneut, and thethingsl saw there
were awful.. Picture it to yourself as you
Willi Whenll recovered from the horror
tbat fell upon me, I recognized many men
aud women wSioui l had'known on earth.
Among the lot tier I noticed a woman
iwhom I had kuowu well on earth, and who
Deserved to be among the lost, I thought 1
[had never anticipated any otber sentence
for her. Although she had possessed more
Ithan was needed to gratify her own wants,
phe could never be moved by the most
touching appeals of the poorest to relieve
their distress.
! "There is nochanceof a voice being raised
In her favor," I said to myself. But I wus
(wrong, for at that moment a lovely uugcl
child flew past me un its blue and white
iwiugs. WilhonHany sign of fear it flew di
rect to St. Petcrjwho looked formidable
enough with his toug beard and great keys,
pud pointing with, its littlodorelingertothe
Jiard hearted woman cried, "She once gave
»ne a haudful of nuts."
| "Keally," answered the keeper of heaven,
."that was not much, and yet I am sur
prised, for that woman would not part wit h
to much as a pin during her life. But you,
(little one, who were you on earth?"
| "Little Hannele wns my name," answer
ed the angel. "I died of starvation, and
only once did any one give me anything iv
piy life to make me happy, and that was
that woman yonder."
( "Marvelous," 'answered Peter, stroking
his white beard. "No doubt the uuts were
fiven as a miserly payment ot some service
ou did her."
"No, no!" the angel answered decidedly.
I "Well, tell us how it happened, then,"
the apostle commuuded, aud the dear little
soul obeyed.
j "My sick mother and I lived in the city
{all uloue, for father wus dead. Just before
Christmas we had nothing more to eat, so
knottier, though she lay in bed and ber head
bud bauds were burning, marie some little
sheep of bits of wood and cotton, aud I car
ped them to the Christmas market. There
II sat on some steps aud offered them for
sole to the- f asscrsby, but nobody wanted
them. Hours passed, uad it was very coid.
The open wound in my knee, which uo one
saw, pained me to, and the frost iv my (In
ters and toes burned dreadfully.
f "Evening came, the lumps were lighted,
out i dared not go home, for only one per
son had thrown a copper into my lap, and
1 needed more to buy a bit of bread and a
few coals. My own pangs hurt me, but
that mother lay at home alone with no one
to hand her anything or support her when
lier breathing became difficult hurt me
still more. I could hardly bear to sit on
the cold steps any longer, and my eyes were
blind with tears.
I "A barrel wus set down iv front of the
bouse, and while a clerk was rolling it over
the sidewalk into the shop the stream of
jpassers was stopped. That woman t here—l
remember her well —stood still in front of
tne. 1 offered her one of my sheep and
looked at her through my tears. She seemed
to hard und stern tin.!. 1 thought, 'She won't
bive me anything.' Hut she did. It seemed
suddenly as if ber face grew softer and her
eyes kinder. She glanced at me, and before
I knew it she had put her baud in the hag 1
Which ahe carried on ber arm aud thrown
the nuts into my lap.
! "The cask had been rolled into the shop
(by this time, aud the throng of people car
fied her along. She tried to stop. It was
ot easy, and she only did it to toss me a
second, third and fourth handful of the
kuost beautiful walnuts. I can still see it
hi I. as if it were today! Then she felt in her
pocket, probably to get some money for
fcue, but the press of people was too strong
for her to stand against it longer. I doubt
If she heard that I thanked her."
I Hero the angel broke off and threw n kiss
to the coudemn'ed woman, and St. Peter
asked her how it happened lhat she, who
had been so deaf to all appeals from Ihe
Ipoor, had been so generous to the child.
I The tormented woman answered umid
her loud sobs; "The tearful eyes of the lit
tie one reminded me of my small sister,
vho died a painful death before I had
jgrirwn hard and wicked, und a st range sea
Cation —I know not how it happened my
■elf—overpowered me. It seemed as if my
■heai-t warmed within me, und something
teemed to soy to me that I should never
forgive myself as long us I lived and should
be even unhuppier thou I wus if I did not
the child something to rejoice over ut
Christinas time. 1 longed to draw ber to-
Kvard tne and kiss her. After I had tossed
■lid' La';f of Ihe nuts which I had just
I [gut, I felt happier than 1 hud for many
| day, and I would certainly have giveu her
K>ma money, though only v little."
But Peter 'interrupted her. Uk hud heard
fciougb, and as he knew that it was inipos
-111 ... .'or any one in heaven or hell to tell an
pntruth, be notXled to her, sayiug: "Thin
Kas, beyond dispute, a good deed, hut it is
too small to counterbalance the great
might of your bad deeds. Perhaps it may
jigbtea your punishment. Still, great
riches were me.ted out io you on earth, and
rant were v few nuts to youl The motive
lhat urged you to bestow them is pleasing
ti the sight of the Lord, I acknowledge, j
but, as I said before, your charity was too
paltry for you to be released trom your
pains because of it."
He turned to go, but a clear voice of
wonderful sweetness held him back. It
was that of the Saviour, who advanced
with majestic dignity toward the apostle
and spoke: "Let ns first hear if tbe alius
giviag of wbich we have just learned was
really too small to plead for leniency toward
this sinning soul. I .ri us hoar"—turning
to the angel—"what became of the nuts."
"Oh, dear Saviour," answered the angel,
"I ate half of them, and I was grateful to
you, for I felt tbat I owed them to your
bounty, as they were my 'little Christ
child,' as the people in the city where we
lived colled a Christmas present."
"You see, Peter,' the Saviour interrupted
tbe angel. "Do we not owe It to the nuts
of that woman that a pure child's soul was
led to us? That in itself Is no small thing.
Tell what further happened to you."
"I ate most of them," the little girl an
swered, "but I had still more to eat by
Christmas eve, for the people who had
looked at me when the woman threw some
thing into my lap were interested in my
suffering, and soon I bad sold all six sheep,
; and besides many pennies and groscheuone
big thaler had Sown into my lap. With
these I was able to buy mother many things
that she stood in sore need of, and though
she died ou New Year's morning she had
| many little comforts during her last days."
The Anointed cast another look full of
! meaning at Petsr, when a large and beau
tiful angel, the spirit of the mother of the
cherub began: "If you will permit me, O
boly Jesus, I, too, would like to say a word
in favor of the condemned. Before Han
nele came home with the nuts I lay iv bed.
without hope or help in my great suffering.
I had lost all faith, for i::y prayers bad uot
been heard, nnd La the bitterness of my
heart it seemed lhat you. who were said to
be the friend of the poor on earth, and God
the Father, had forgotten us in our misery
iv order to overwhelm the rich with greater
"But when Haunele came home and
lighted the little lamp, and 1 saw her tiny
face, where for v long time I had seen no
smile, but only pain nnd grief, now beam
ing with joy; when I saw the nuts and the
other good things which she had brought
and law her pleasure in them, my belief in
tbee, O Lord, and in the kind Father re
turned, and 1 ceased not to be grateful to
the end. If now, iv the glory of thy mag
nificence, 1 know bliss unutterable, I owe
it to that woman and to the* fact that she
was good enough to throw the uuts into
Hannele's apron."
Peter nodded affirmatively. Then be
bowed before the Saviour and said: "The
little gift of the condc.nued soul has indeed
borne better fruit than I imagined. Yet
when I t ell you what a great siuner she was
on earth"
"I know," the Son of God interrupted.
"Before we decide upon the late of this
woman, let us hear what the child ill I with
tbe rest of the uuts, for we know that she
did uot eat them all. Now, my little angel,
what became of the lust of them? Speak
on. Gladly will I listen to you."
Hannele began anew: "After they had
buried mother, they sent me into the coun
try among the mountains, for they aaid it
was not the duty of the city to care for me,
but that of the village parish where my
parents were born. So I was taken there.
The six nuts that I had saved I took with
me to play with. This I most enjoyed do
ing iv the spring, alone on the little strip
of grass behind the poorhouse, in which I
wos the only child. Besides me there were
but three old women, 'being fed to death,'
as the peasants used to say.
"Not one of them noticed anything that
happened around them, but my heart used
to grow light when everything about me
budded aud sprouted und hurst into bloom.
My body was always aching, but my pains
could uot lessen my enjoyment of the
spring. Wherever I looked men were sow
ing and planting. It was iho first time
that I hud ever seen it, and the wish came
over me to confide something to the good
earth that would take root und sprout aud
grow green and high for me.
"So I stuck four of my nuts into the
ground. 1 put them us far apart in the
small space ns I could, so that if big trees
came from my seeds they A.ight not stand
iv oue another's way, but might all enjoy
the ulr and the sunshine' that I was ao
thankful for. I saw my seed sprout, hut
what became of them afterward I did not
live to see. Two years alter I sowed them
alumiuefell upon us. The poor weavers,
who lived in the mountain village, had all
they could do to nourish wife and child.
There wus little left for the poorhouse. As
I was already ill, I could not stand the mis
cry, and 1 was the first to die of tbe dread
ful fever caused by hunger.
"Only one of the blind women and the
dull witted one followed the suck in which
1 was buried—for who would have paid for
a coffin? The last two nuts I divided with
the old women. Koch oue of us hud v half,
and how gladly we ate the little morsel, for
even o taste of any dainty seemed good to
us after we had lived on nothing hut bread
and potatoes From here 1 watched the
nther nuts grow to be trees. All four had
straight stems nun thick crowns. Under
one of them that stood near a spring, which
is now culled tho Fresh spring, an old car
penter who came to the poorhouse built a
Here another ungel interrupted the little
narrator with the question, "Do you menu
the nut tree iv Dorbstudt ?" and receiving
on answer in the nllirmutive he cried: "I,
Master, 1 urn that old carpenter, ami dur
ing my last summers 1 hud no greater
pleasure than to sit by the Fresh spring
under the nut tree, ui;d while I smoked my
pipe tv think of my old wife, whom I w;t
soon to Und nguin with you. In the au
tunin, too, many a dry brown leaf found
its way among the more expensive tobacco
ones. Hut the nut trees were cut down
many y ears ago."
"i sow it," cried tho spirit of little Han
nele, and one felt from her lone how she de
plored it. "They were felled when the
poorhouse was given up. Hut the grea l
Son of God has now heard what he wished
to know."
"No, no," the Saviour answered, "i
Should Still like to know what becamcoftht
wood of these trees."
The voices of several angels were heard
nt tbe same >.-: itul ut, for many of the poo:
weavers of DhroMatH'were to be four.-! iv
the heavenly kingdom. St. Peter, how
ever, bade them to ho quiet and permitted-,
only the one who had lest entered the
abode of the hies :ed to speak.
"I was the village doctor." this one be
gan, "and. I quitted the earth because 1.
too, fell X victim to the pestilence of which
man} I thu pcor people were dying and
• i which 1 fought with all my small
powers, hut with small success. I can tell
you all that you wish to know, My master,
for during 4S years I devoted my humble
services to the sick poor there. When Han
nele dv din our poorhouse—it happened be
fore my time—the misery was even greator
than at pr. lent. The weavers were ground
down by the large manufaciurers until un
energetic man built a factory iv our village
and paid them better wo&cs. I
"As the population then increased, and I
consequently the number of patients,apace i
was wanting in which to house them, for
the dilapidattd poorhouse—whither they j
were carried —was no longer large enough |
to accommodate them nil. Therefore the |
pa:! ,h, aided l.y the owner of the factory, I j
built a hospital ft r the whole district, and |
the site of the oiri poorhouse was chosen for I (
it. Tiie beam'if vI nut trees which Hannele ,
had plauted had to be destroyed. I was
sorry to bt obliged to give the order, but j
we needed loa g.ouuu where they stood.
As we bad to be economies! in everything,
big and little, we had planks sawed ont of
tbe trees for our use."
"I owe it a debt of gratitude too, but for
sn entirely different service," aaid a beauti
ful angel as it bowed Its crowned head rev
erently before the Son of God. "My lot be
low was a very hard one. I was early left a
widow, and I supported my children en
tirely by the work of my hands. By dint
of great effort 1 brought them up well, and
i my three sons grew to be brave meu who
I took care of themselves and helped their
mother. But all three, my Master, were
I lost to me, taken away by the unfuthom-
I able wisdom of the Father. Two fell in wor;
the third was killed by the machinery while
jat his work. Tbat broke my strength, and
! when they brought me to the hospital I
1 was on ttie verge of dlspair, and life seemed
j a greater burden than I could bear.
"Your image, my Savior, had just been
finished by a sculptor who had carved it
from the wood of the nut tree by the Fresh
I spring. They put it opposite to my bed. It
represented you, my Lord, on the cross,
and your head bowed in ugony, with lv
crown of thorns, was a sorrowful sight.
Yet 1 paid but small heed to it. One morn
ing, however —it was the anniversary of the
death of my two dear eons, who hurl lost
their lives fighting bravely side by side for
their fatherland—on that morning the sun
fell upon your sad face uud bleeding hands
pierced by the nails, and then I reflected
i how bitterly you had suffered, though in
nocent, that you might redeem us, uud bow
your mother must bave felt to lose such o
"Then n voice asked meif I had any right
to complain when the Son of God himself
bad willingly endured such torments for
our sake, and I felt compelled lo answer
no uud determined then to bear patiently
whatever might be laid upon me, a poor,
sinful woman Thenceforth, my Lord, was
your image my consolation, oud since the
wood of which it was made come from the
tree planted by Hannele near tho Fresh
spring 1 owe beyond doubt the better years
that followed aud tho joy of being with you
iv paradise, my Saviour, to the nuts which
that condemned woman gave to the child."
Humbly she bowed her head again. The
Son of God turned to St. Peter, saying,
"Well, Peter?"
The latter called to the guardians of hell:
"Let her go free; the gates of heaveu are
open to her. How rich und manifold, O
Lord! is the fruit that springs from the
smallest gift offered in true love!"
"You are right," answered the Saviour
gently aud turned away.—George Ebers in
Chriatmas In a Pullman Cur.
In a through Pullman from Denver to
St. Louis were n mini ber of ladies and gen
tlemen; but, best of all, a widow aud a
pretty little daughter. I half wondered
what the pretty little girl was to have for
Christmas, seeing that no chimney led
down from the roof, but my speculations
were rather vague, and 1 forgot the little
girl to think of my own dear relatives.
Christmas eve when the berths were let
down and the passengers began lo retire
I came in to look after my own. As I
strolled down tbe aisle I saw a tiny little
stocking hanging outside tbe berth where
the little girl lay with her mother. 1 tell
you the effect was electrical. It brought
up all kinds of strange feelings, nnd 1 add
ed my share to the general contribution.
Old Santu Claus must havo been en route
to St. Louis that night, for the way he
stuffed aud jammed that stocking full of
fruit, candy, money, trinkets and the like,
and then filled handkerchiefs until they
were greut round balls and .ied tbem ou,
was simply wonderful. It did seem us
though Santa Claus bad no one else in t tic
world to take care of. Next moruiug I en
joyed watching the widow and tiie little
one. They were the especial pets of the oc
casion, aud every one came round and said
something kind to tbe child. But tbe effect
on tbe passengers generally was the best of
all. It brought them together, aud every
oue said merry Christ mas and wished every
body else all kinds of good luck, until we
were all well acquainted and thoroughly
sociable. I tell you it takes little children
to bind human hearts together uud make
the world one genial, happy family.—St.
Louis Globe-Democrat.
Knighting the Loin of Beef.
The follies of the rich aud noble took
many manifestations iv olden times, some
of which were almost childish iv their sim
plicity. Such was the scene which bus been
made tbe subject of several paintings, the
"Knighting of ihe Loin of Beef." As the
story is told among the narrators of this
kind of literary narrative, Charles II was
an enormous cuter and was particularly
fond of a well roasted loin of beef. One
Christmas doy there was brought into the
royal presence a loin so noble iv its propor
tions that, in eestucy ut the prospect of the
feust before him, tbo king, iv a frolicsome
mood, resolved to confer the order of
knighthood on the roust, so drew his sword
and dubbed the loin sirloin. The story is
fur from bad and illustrates tbe cheerful
nonsense that iv those days passed for wit
and humor; but, unfortunately fcr its
truth, this particular cut of beef was culled
the sirloin long before Charles Ii was born
and received Its name, not,from ita trau
scendcut excellence, but trom its position
iv the living animal.—lit. Louis Globe
