Fully a thousand people, big an little, crowded into the Sunday school parlors of Central Union church last niht. It was the happiest, merriest time of all the year for the little people and for the bi? ones too. Santa Claus was there. And a f?ood old Santa Claus he was, with his long-, shaggy beard and his comical manner of talking to the little ons. lie came riht out of the Xorth with his heavy robes on, and yet some were mean enough to say that he lived in Honolulu and bore the nam. of a well known youns man, Mr. 15. L. Marx. However, Santa Claus was there and had brought a present for evt-ry child in the house. He brought a tree from Tantalus, too. a beautiful evergreen, and loaded it with gifts and sweet meats, with silver and golden colors set in a glare of light. Then after the presents were distrib uted and all the little hearts were beat ing happily everybody had a dish of ice cream, with cake, and the papas and mammas gathered together and watched the glad-faced children and talked of the days when they were little ones and loved thu happy Christmastime. Each child was given a box of candy and a string of popcorn, then, after many "good nights." the little ones were, taken home and the good, old-fashioned Christmas festival was over. ON A ROOF GARDEN. Surprise Party at F. W. Beards lee's New Home. A pleasant surprise was given Mr. F. W. Bearslee in his new quarters at the Arlington annex on Hotel street, last evening, by friends from the Ha waiian hotel. Mr. Beardslee has fitted up a most attractive roof garden in connection with his offices, and his friends have been waiting patiently for the completion of this garden in order to give the genial host a bouse warm ing. Early in the evening Mr. Beards less was enticed away from his rooms and in his absence Captain Taylor and three daughters, with Mrs. Bradbury, all of San Francisco, together with oth er friends, took possession. They turn ed out all the lights and soon after the unsuspecting victim entered. The guests were seated on the roof garden, each armed with some musical instru ment, and at the entrance of Mr. Beardslee, every one struck their sever al instruments and rendered a selection that could only be equalled by Herr Berger and his famous band. The surprise was complete and was only the beginning of a very enjoyable evening. During the stay of the guests they were entertained by solos from all, including the host, who rendered some of his best vocal selections with guitar accompaniment. Every body voted the roof garden a success and after congratulations to Mr. Beardslee on his cosy surroundings, the merry guests took their departure with a cor dial invitation to make this the first of many such occasions. During the evening the roof garden was lighted by many Japanese lanterns, which lent a charm to a very pretty picture. Ciiicograph Rehearsal.
