deep down under

Germany on one of
lesser mountains of
Ilarz a miner with
his wife and seven children
Deep down in the bosom
of the mountains was the
mine Here the father had worked
each day from morn to night to feed
even scantily his wife and children
t last came a season of great dearth
The miner fell sick Sadly his wife
hung out of sight his leather work

Dear husband said the penitent
wife thou knowest the holy firs I go
to gather their cones I will sell them
and buy thee food which will make
thee well Children care for thy

Quickly throwing a shawl over her
head and taking a basket on her arm
out into the gathering coldness of the
coming night stepped the mother The
wind shook the alders at the cottage
door until they nodded and peeped at
the windows It roughly rattled the
dried foliage of the stately oaks whose
sacredness to the gods the elements
were thought to respect and then died
away among the pines in a soft sad
music that brought tears to the
mothers eves It was like the moan
the bairns made for bread The
tears broke into a sob halfblinded
with a bent head she reached the edge
of the holv forest
Pityingly out from his bed of clouds
the setting sun glanced warm and ten
der He shot his parting rays among
the firs and filled their deep shadows
with a cheerful glow Suddenly into
the marked pathway of its light
stepped a little man with snowy beard
who gravely doffed his leathern cap and
waited for the sad mother to reach him
Good woman what ailst thou

Christmas In Naples
The most interesting and curious
sight of the holiday season in Naples is
the Pnesepia A Pnesepium is a life
sized representation of the Nativity or
Christ in the manger at Bethlehem
The one in the church called Santa
Maria in Porto is the finest in the city
and occupies nearly half one side of
the church In this representation
there are several houses or rather
arches wih doors at which people are
standing The manger is always
placed near the center of the scene
The blessed Virgin Jlother is generally
robed in blue satin with crimson scarf
and white head dress Joseph is never
very conspicuous though he btands be
hind the Virgin attired in a handsome
dress of the period
The IMy Christchild il Santo Bam
bino lies in a rich cradle with linen
The Magi borne by their black
slaves are very prominent in their
grand clothes jewelled turbans and
satin tunics covered with jewelry rep
resenting handsome royalties in the
prime of life and strength One of
them is always black in complexion
and the others a rich brown much
darker than the average Italian They
all kneel reverently to do homage and
make their costly offerings
More attendants and sometimes
horses and mules are beheld in the
distance with raiment and various ac
cessories of wealth and position also
any number of bright picturesque
peasants carrying presents of vegeta
bles fruit sheep of all ages and even
All these figures are lifesize and of
brownpainted wood extremely well
carved full of expression feeling and
action There are foot paths trees
and flowers in all directions making
the scene wonderfully realistic A
goodly number of flying angels sus
pended by invisible wires are hovering
above the holy group
Last year in the Pnesepium of Santa
Maria in Porto there w ere thirtysix
figures tw hich represented the
artist and wife the latter as a
shepherdess surrounded by large
woolly sheep
She was quite handsome and wore a
modern Roman festa costume
The Magi were carefully studied
from the pictures and were dressed in
the oriental costume of the unchang
ing cast
These Pnesepia are most character
istic in the churches frequented chiefly
by the poor who save their little hoards
of chestnuts apples tomatoes etc to
put in the hands of their beloved
Santa Maria c Santo Bambino as
offerings The poor people revel in it
all and mothers are seen holding up
their little ragged and dirty children
to show them these wonders
A Leap Year Christmas
Frederick Charles Bunting had been
Amanda Dusenberrys shadow for three
years to the exclusion of other young
men who would have been attracted by
the maidens charms had Frederick
Charles unremitting attentions left
them any opportunity lie was at the
Dusenberry home two or three even
ings a week and all of Sunday aftei
noon This being the case it was no
wonder that he had the field to him
self audlhat other young men thought
it useless to look in that direction
But tho two were not engaged
There was nothing in the way of it ex
cept Frederick Chirles inability to ask
Amanda to marry him He was not a
coward in other respects but he
dreaded to put the question and
Amanda showed no indication of help
ing him Her idea was that if a girl
was not worth proposing to she was
not worth havinjr i
When the pros n jKar of grace ar
rived being leap ir tho diflldent
young man cherished the hope that his
charmer would exercise a womans
prerogative which comes every quad
renium and propose to him But up
to the date of the incident about to be
narrated the hopes of Frederick
Charles had been disappointed
The two were sitting before the fire
in the Dusenberry parlor one Thurs
day night in tho middle of December
when the girl remarked flow rapidly
time is flyingl It will soon be Christ
Yes he replied and it will be
leap year Christmas too By the way
leap year will soon be gone
So it wiU replied the girl de
What would you like me to give
you this leap j car Christmas asked
the young man
Why Tred Id like you to give
Speak out Amanda Dont be
afraid replied Bunting who began
to get courageous with the idea that
at last he had about brought her to
the point of asking that he give him
self as a Christmas gift
I I I hardly like to
And the girl hung her head
Dont be afraid Ill give yon any
thing you ask for he declared in a
great burst of generosity
WeU then Fred I wish you would
give me
Out with It Dont be backward
ho said Impatiently Giveyon what

Pete started in the tunnel Hank fol

Almost at the same instant there

There is a spot in Maderia where the

A Mralnwd Theory
Specialist on throat diseases are
beginning to take unusual interest in
cuhlnary methods They advise a
kitchen quarantine on uah da and
boiled dinner days giving as a reason
that tho steam from boiling clothes
and pickled meats that require much
heat produces many illnesses of tho
respiratory organs and aggravates
slight or chronic diseases of the nose
throat and lungs Patients are ad
vised to vacate apartments having
dark or ill entilated kitchens ind to
keep all babies and ailing children out

It is not always easy to see or de
cide just when to stop pouring liquid
into a funnel while filling a lot of bot
tles Hence there Is a liability of the
liquid slopping over and going to
waste A Texas man has therefore
devised a way to stop tho flow auto
matically at the right moment He
has a float small enough to blip down
in the neck of tho bottle a little way
It hangs there Iooely until tho rising
levefof the contents forces it upward
and along w ith it a wire which then
closes a valve in the funnel
