It lr the trn't and ntrlurnt irivinn of food and drink and dole and tova and nil that rejoices the heart of man or boy. Y-t it in undeniable tlint this tradition of (Santa Clatw h:t ber-anie nliict as op iressive as It is delichrful. Hants CIhus bimself, indred, has i lie rap of Form natus. Hid liHikota and "tores are aelf repleninhlna:. and when he arrives upon the roof ho very gifu for every aire and taste peer out of his pocket and push themselves into his builds, and he has only to slide down chimney, and there are the capacious stockincs cajrerlv awaitinir him and ready to stretch to the Utmost to receive hi irrHoious InrLf-ss Hants t'laus is a 'lapnv fellow, aa indeed how could the fountain of am h universal happlni'Hs help hriiitf? The l'ied Piper is only one of his di-puite, ami if we could once cateh that dancing dervish we should lind that the merry music to which all the children caper la merely the bewitching tale of the coming gifts III I ll I miiih'.. Hut the disciples of Banta (Tans, his viceroys and sulwtitutes, are very differ pnt from the saint himself. To sally forth iuto Droftdwav or Fourteenth Htreet or Twenty-third Street with intent to fit yourself out as a Hunt a t'laus Is one ol the most bewildering of delight ful undertakings. A poor book-lover wbom the fcasv l tinir knew used to sav that the only way to save his moner wiis to no into Hll the nook -stores, and in seeing that he conhl not buy everything mat nc wanteu, tie was reconciled to buying nothing. So at C hristmas the tmbarras-trn'Mt of rii h moderates ex pense, and the gaping stocking is in dan ger of going unfed from the very fulneas uf the possible supply. The fascinated and confused loiterer, as willing to buv one thing as another, and unable to buy ail. airirvsitiid admin-, ami universally do-iirca, and bins Doihing. In the happy enchantim tit of the spcctscle everything seem- to nun niircr ami mure attractive than anything cle, n : : - J he returns, how often! Jaded, delighted, dazed, with his heail full of fnm ies and his heart of emu lions, but with his hamis empty. The emptv hamled, however, are not all. The full hanih d. indctd, aro them selves one of the pleanantent Christmas op.Ttr.t lea. The Biitisfaftion of the dis ciple who hastens homeward Conscious that he lias secured what every stocking at his chimney mni desires is aa serene as that of the parent bird winging neat ward with the plum test of worms in his bill. That sweet smile is the forecast of childMi happiness. The beaml ; par ental faces glow with the light of happy homes. The street seems to be full of hurrying benedictions "Merry Christ mas to all, and to all a good-night!" lint am we linger along the Christmas streets and survey the lavish profusion of costly or tasteful or useful or beauti ful Or fanciful devices to charm the gold and silver from the wayfarer's purs-e, we may well wonder whether Santa t'laus himself, should some mishap befall his journey In mid-air, and some one of his Ileet team, Dasher or Uaneer, perhaps, or Homier or untzcn, should ca$t a ce lestial alioe or trip over a snow-flake, or the whole team Miv as Jack Frost spark les by whether Hants Claus, if sudden ly obliged to renew his freight, and a'lighting for that purpose in the holiday city, might not for a moment be a little lost in the d'-licious perplrxitv, and for get his blithesome errand in his own de light. Certaitily, as he pn-se-t along, his heart might Justly dilate with a generous vanity iu the consciousm'-js that of all saints in the calendar he is most sincere ly and universally worhippd if, in deed. Haint Valentine, a little later, did not dispute the palm. If the imagination of the childand a boy's thoughts are long, long thoughts" could reveal its Christmas secrets, doubtless we fdiould ace it fhap ing for his wonder the strange woods of Hanta Claus, in which the verdure is all of Christmas trees lit wiih tiny tapers, and blossoming, beyond apple trees la June, with rare mid beautiful gifts, while yet from out that blooming realm of everlasting green thcinonarcu, mu tiled from the cold, comes gliding over the boar-frost with airy reindeern tinkling in the chiilv moon. To share that mid night riife, to behold Ihe multitudinous stockings, and to return to the, realm uf eternal Christmas gifts, is a vision not beyond the daring imagination of the boy who, in the joy of the Christmas morning twilight, a he feels the forum, before seeing dm beauty, of Itiu gifta, looks beyond the gifts to the region whence they conn. rt in touching ivory snd beholding pearls and smelling spices he is rapt into a far Persian and African and Indian world, 6cc.- birda-of paradise, and saunter') under palms. "Christmas comes but once a year" was the old Etigli-.li open hohiiig to the heart and baud of charity. To that ap- Eeal what lord or lady could lm deaf? et it be gold to-day, your honor.

Neatness I. a good thing for a girl, anu u stio noes not learn it when she is young, she never will. It takes great deal more neatness to make girl look well than It docs to make boy look passable. Not beoause a boy to start with, 1. better looking than a girl, but hi. clothes are of a different sort, not so many colors In them, and people don't expect a boy to look as pretty as a girl. A girl that la not neatly dressed is called a sloven, and no ono likes to look at her. ller face may be pretty and her eye. bright, but if there is a spot of dirt on her oh.ek and her finger s ends era biaok with ink. and her shoes are not laced oi buttoned up. and her apron is dirty and her oollar is not buttoued, and hei skirt la torn, she canuot ba attractive or w iusooie.
