THE TOE OF IMVY'S STOCKING. It wqs vory cold, it was Bnowing liard, and U waB Cbristmas Eve. A9 Davy brought in an armful of flrowood and put it iu thc comer of the kltchen, ho said aloud: " Ilow wlllSauti Clau3 pet about to nigtit?" "Sauta Cluus! ha, ha, ha, lia! ' laugbcd his brollitr Gilbert, who sat with bis chalr lillcd back against the wall and wiih his bands iu bis pockets. " If Sauta Claus visitcd auybody, do you suppose bc'd como hert?" be askcd. "Of couibo bc would," said Davy, stoutly. Davy was a stuidy liltlo fel low, with chccks as ruddy aa a winter apple and brown eyes ebiuing witb bealth and spirils. " 1 know bo'd be surc to kcep.eomething for rae; cuougb to put intbo toe of my etocking at any rate," bc addcd. " Perhaps he'll put in tbat rcd cow tbat you'vo wantcd to buy for uiother for a long lime," snecred Gilbert. "Idou'tkuow what ho will put in, bul if it was cver so little, it ruigbt belp to buy the cow; tsven a nickcl would do to bcgiu with, you know," said Davy, stoutly. Gi.bert laugbcd and called hiui " a Btupid," to tbink it worth wbila to be gin to buy a cow by saving a nickcl. As for hitnself, ho bad half a dollar, and be meant to spend itin having a ijood timo iu the vil age on Christtuas Day. IJut Davy didn't ruiud his brolbcr's rldiculo, for he was used to it. After hu had caten his eupper, with a good appetite, of baked potutoes with a 1 Ule boI', he talkcd with his ruother ab ut tho tinie wben tbey would have a fiue cow and have plenty of milk and but ter. Then things wou'.d thcn go mucb betler in their little home, which waa so poor now. His mother smil:d hopc fully when sbe remembered tbat it was Davy who had cultivated tho potaloes so carefully, tbat the crop was of tho very best kincl, and tbat tbey had plenly in the cellar now to last all winter. He askedhis mother for his very best gray woolen stocking9, and hung tbem up by the wide QlMashioned chimney beforo he went to bed. "Good-night, momkins," ho Baid, cheerily," it's very early to go to bed, but one must give Santa Claus a chance, you know." It was a long lime beforo he could go to sleep, and after a while he thought he hcard Santa Claus calling: "Now Dasher, now Danccr, now Pranccr, now Vixen. On Comet, on Cupid, on Dunder and Blitzen! " and the ecamper ing of boofs of tho eight tiny reindeer over the roof. Then heburied his hcad cloeer in the pillow and wsnt to sleep. It was very early when he awoke the next morning. So early tbat the stars were shininc in the clear skies, and the new-fallen snow lay light as down over evorv branch and twie of the creat elm tree into which he looked from his win- dow. But ho did not spend mucb timo at the window, both because be was so cold and because he was anxious to sco what was in his stockinff. He pulled on hia clothes hastily and hurried into tho kitchen. There ho found it very dark, but he knew his way to tho chimney, whero ho felt about for his stocking, which he Eoqn found, and oh ioyl It was full to tho very top. He quickly raked tho ashes from tho buricd coals and tbrcw on tbem Bome pino cones, wbich at onco lcapcd into a bright blaze. Now ho would seo what was in his stocking. It was not heavy, but it wbb very full. First ho pulled out a picco of crumpled brown paper. "1 couldn't expect. to flud anything but a bit of crumpled paper at tho very top," he thought.

He pulleu out a packagc as uo epoKe, which was ticd up wilh many stnngs and wranpcd in papor after paper. When ho had taken off tho last wrap- piug, he camo to a lit'le box, and, open itiK it. hc found just a Bpritr of bright, thining rcd holly bcrrics wi'h their green l.-avcs. It was eucu a aisappoinuntni, mai even uubert old not laugn. "roor Dave," he said, " S.tnta Claus might have saved himsclf the troublo."

' It is very prelty holiy anyway, momkins," he said, looking at itthrough his tcars. The more ho looked at it the prct- ticr it seemcd, until when hc was on his way tothe grcathouao with a basket of cggs he thought ho had never seeu anjtbiug half so bcautiful aa the shin- ing rcd berries at nis outtou-acij. When ho rcachcd tho governor's bou1 and showed tho eggs to tho cook in the kitchen she boughfthemat once. Sbe looked at the holly at his button- holc and said it was very prelty, the prcttiest she had cver seeu.

He never uail Deen in sucn a Deauu ful place befcrc, but it was not the flne room but tho governor's lady tbat at tractcd his attention, she waa so pretty and smiled down upon him so pleas- antly Sbe asked him where he got the beautiful hol y, and when he told her Sauta Claus had brougbt it, she seemed verv mucb pleaseu. " Would you sel. it, then?" sho asked. Davy said yes, " because I want to buy a rcd cow for my mother and that will begin it." "bo it will," sam tbe lady, givinc him a dolnr, " and here's a colden or ange for you, too," she added, picking out a large ono from a dish ot Iruit. When Davy thanked her, he started for home, very much pleased with tho money and tbe orange. " I wonder what Gill would Bay now?" ho said to himself , triumphantly. He had only gono a little way when he met a baker brincing some (JhristmaB puddlng on a tray to sell at the gov crnors houso. Ho was Binging as ho came along, and walking so carelessly that Davy saw him tlip on a pieco of ice and ran forward to catch tho tray before it fell. Bul as bo did bo be dropped his basket and the golden orange rolled over the 8B0W. "Ah, ha!"said the baker, " what a Ono orange! I'll give you a ChristmaB pudding for that."

" It's tho very IblnK wo want, lom," said one of Iho Bailors. 1 So it is rcpllcd his companiou, and then withoutrnoro words thcy snatchcd tho basket from Davy'ti hand and ran off, Icaving the boy crjiug bitterly. Wlnl" ho was still Bobbuii' and wip- ing awav his teara with his coat sletvo, he heard a quecr, crcakiua; voice ex claim: "What'a the mattcr? It's awful dark, what's tho mattei?'' He looked about him, but could see nobody. It was very straogc, for Iho world was so white and so stil t vciy wherc, that any moving thlnc could have becn seen for a lonc diatancc. " It's awful dark 1" Tbis limc Davj' thouyht that tho voice came from an old pea jackot that ono of tho eailors liBd tbrowu away as bc ran. But what wa3 it? He waa a little afraid m ho went near it curiously. "Oh, dcarmel Oh, dear mcl Oh, dear mel What's the matter?" Baid the voico. 13 y this timo Day was used to it, and Btooping over the juckcl carefully to un tie thc string with which it was fast ened, the talkiug still goiug on. As he opcucd it, a beau iful icd aud green parrot ilew out and perehed itstlf on his aboulder. Davy was hardly more dc lightcd thau frighlened. When tho bird flew out it laugbcd violeutly, but in a few momenta it bcgan to shiver and cry witb tbe cold. " II-oo h-oo," cried tho parrot, climb ing down from Davy's shoulder and puiting his head ineide bis coat. " You'd better go in the basket and be covcred up," said Davy, who felt quite at home with his prize by this time, and bad arransed tne eauor's jacket in his basket. Tho parrot made no objections, but jusi as Uavy nad nim aaftly stowed away, ho poked his head out to exclaim, " Pretly little boy," and then seltled down muttering, " aw ful darkl awful dark!" Davy had been too busy with thb parrot to notico that some ono was ap proacbing; but when he laoked up now he noticed that Silas, tho Buperintend ent of tbe governor's farm, was cljse by. He was driving a llne red cow, and was hurrying homo to be in timo for his Chrislmas dinner. " Merry Christmas, Davy, havo you got a turkey in your basket?" he cried out. Davy ran up to him, and opening tho jacket, said eagerly: "But see what I havo got, Mr. Su perintendent." " Whew, what a beautyl The gov ernor's ltdy would give a hundred dol lars for that." "Who are you, who aro you?" screamed the parrot, nestling closer in tbe basket. " Polly want a crackcr Polly want Bome coffeo?" asked the Buperintend ent, insinuatingly. " Polly want a cracker Polly want some coffeo," roplied the bird doubt fully. Davy had been thinking tho matter over, and told thc supcrintendent tho whole storv. asking him if ho would givo him tho red cow in exchango for the parrot. The 8unerintondent, who remem bered how tho governor's lady had grioved about her parrot that had died a fow days bcfore, felt suro sho would givo him more thau tho price of bis cow for it. So he took tho bird and cave Davy the cow, and told him that he would tako the riBk of tho sailora re turnlns. Hc would havo beon no cnd of fun," said Davy regretfully, as ho handed over the basket: " but after all, it was a red cow that I wantod for mother." When ho stoppod beforo tho door a fow minutcs later and sbouted, " Ilero sho is, mother, bero sho IbI" his mother could bardiy beucvo her oycs. "isn'c buo a boautv. momkinsY Davy exclaimcd. " 1 should think bo: such a beautyl 1 never saw so fino a cow," his mother answered. " But Davy ?' she added doubttully But Davy insiBted upon putting the cow in the stable, whilo he told his story. His mother kept wiping tho happy tears from her eyoB while ho talked, and when ho had flnished, bIio could only exclaim, botween hor laugh- ter and ner sods," weu, i novori " When Gilbert came that night, with a black cye and torn clothcB from his day iu tho vilhgo.ho found Davy milk inc tho cow under tho shcd.
