CHRISTMAS AMONG
MICHIGAN WOODSMEN
Dy EDWARD LYONS HACKETT
MOXG English speaking people
there can bo found no moro
t quaint obsenanco of the sea
son than that in vogue among
tbo woodsmen of northern Michigan
Throughout this great timber belt there
are thousands of men employed and a
large proportion of them see tho out
tilde world but onco or twice a year
when they journey to Sault Stc Ma
rlo or other nearby towns to make pur
chases of tho seasons clothing
Throughout this great wooded dis
trlct twothirds ot tho men are Canad
bans many of them devotedly religious
and Christmas among them begins
properly speaking the 20th of Decem
ber However these men perform
ALL liEOHJ A MAECn AltOCKD
theIr usual labors until the 24th day
of the month and then tho festivities
begin in earnest
During the four days preceding the
celebration however it must be under
stood that tho work is not so strenu
ous and tho monotonous buzz of the
paw and the ring of the ax are frequent
ly interrupted by merry bursts of song
and anecdotes of those who have pass
ed away during the previous season
In Chippewa county there are many
camps or settlements each controlled
by a recognized leader and long before
the holidays the point of celebration Is
decided upon By Christmas eve tho
men women and children havo albas
sembled at the chosen camp where
elaborate preparations have been made
for their comfort and at 10 oclock in
the morning of that day the duly elect
ed master of ceremonies addresses the
multitude of people assembled and out
lines tho program of the week to fol
low for those celebrations continue to
tho 31st day of December
After his speech the oldest daughter
tof the oldest resident is elected queen
if the holidays Her corps of as
sistants Is quickly chosen from tho ed
ucated classes and from their decis
ions pertaining to the weeks celebra
lion there can be no appeal During
tho remainder of the day many
speeches are given refreshments of
many kinds are served and family
groups flock together and relato their
own folklore while the queen assisted
by her advisers examines and selects
the various fowls to be served on tho
following and subsequent days
Christmas day Is but an hour old
When all assemblo and Indulge in re
ligious services while the pine knots
flaring and spluttering In the night air
odd n beauUtuiand weird aspect to
the scene At sunrise nil the men wo
men and children arrayed in their
best assemble at a prearranged spot
and form a large circle tho women
generally In plain woolen garments
and the men In high topped spiked
shoes and dark flannel shirts
In the center of the group stand the
husbandmen or slayers of the fowls
waiting A grindstone and six men
three to grind tho axes and three as
ulstants are also in tho center of the
group At a prearranged signal all the
people begin a march around singing
aud dancing tho grindstones are put
In motion the axes arc laid upon them
and the celebration is on in earnest
TIio singing dancing and counter
marching are continued until the axes
have attained a keen edgo when all
heads are uncovered whIte a dozen
men hand up the fowls for decaplta
tion The women tako tho slain fowls
In charge and soon they are prepared
for the earth ovens
Feasting drinking and dancing then
continuo until the last day of tho
year when all depart to their various
campsCHRISTMAS

Delaware and Maryland are usually
credited with furnishing tho best
grades of holly to Christmas markets
but their Three X brand as seen
after shipment to northern clUes is
not so finely berried as tho Carolina
hplly plentiful In the region around
Ashevllle In America there ure three
distinct grades of holly Trees that
stand on dry barren hillsides as a
rule are heavily laden with thick
knobllko clusters of berries but their
leaves are likely to bo small yellowish
and Imperfect Follow some little
stream to a sheltered sunny Rirde
where n holly trunk gleams white nnd
there you will find leaves large l dark
and perfect with a thick scarlet fruit
ago lighting the shadows evenly all
over the tree
