"God bless tholtttlo stocking
All over the land to-night,
Huns in the choicest corners,
. In the glow of crimson light !
The tiny scarlet stocking,
With a hole In heel and toe,
Worn by wonderful journeys
The darlings havo to go.
And heavon pity the children,
Wherever their home may be,
W ho wake at the first gray dawn
ing, An empty stocking to see,
Left In the faith of childhood,
Hanging against the wall,
JuBt where the dazzling glory
Of Santa's light will fall."
For the Children.
Thore were no Christmas holidays
in the olden times. Holidays there
were and falling at the snmo time of
the year but they were not Christmas
holidays. Dlvino or human, a God
or a myth, the doctrines of Christ
havo none the less changed the spirit
of holiday times. The old holidays
were mens' holidays, the new areholl
days for women and children. Men
have not gone down but women and
children havo gone up. The old holi
days were revels, the new holidays
are full of lovo. thn old were stained
with blood, not of beasts alone, itut
tho blood of men, the new are beauti
fied with gentleness.
If tho children, who to-night toss
on soft bed's uuable to sleep.with antL
olpations of the morrow aud who to
morrow, morning shall make the
house ring with groe over the gifts of
love, could have seen the ancient holi
days, they would wonder what child
ren were for in those days. Oh yes,
there was love then, but It was au
austero and selfish love. Men then
wore on stilts with their heads up in
the air. They couldn't get down to
children. Gontleness was a vice in
those old days. Then the grown
people made it hot for children if fhey
didn't walk the chalk, now, well the
the children have become the tyrants
and the little rascals make it warm
for the older folks, bless them.
To-day or to-night you may see, on
the streets of Waco hundreds of Santa
Clauses of all kinds, rich and poor,
good and bad, of all professions from
banker to hod carries, flitting from
store to store and stealing to the
churches in the afternoon or home
late at night with their arms and
pockets full of seorets, and if you
could look Into .their eyes you would
see a light In them that makes even
the homllest man look for the time
pretty. Tt is a light that never shone
in the eyes of the sttltlfled ancients.
In the old times men would fight for
their children and rush into burning
buildings or plunge into dark waters
to save them but they didn't romp
with them or buy themjumplng-jaoks
or put things In their stockings.
Men then were masters not husbands
or fathers as we understand the word
A father would have been as muoh
ashamed of pulling little pink toes
peeping out from a white nightgown
to thn tuno of "This little pig went to
market and this. one staid at home,"
as he might have been If he had been
caught stealing a sheep. The faot Ib
to kill n man or to steal a horse were
rather manly qualities while to elap
a little dlmplod pair of hands to the
poetry of "Patty cake, patty cake
baker's man" was uttorly silly and
womanish, aud tho last word waB as
strong expression of contempt as any
of the dictionaries of those times con
tained. Tho mothers of those days
were not like the mothers of to-day.
They were good mothers, of course,
but goodness then was not tho kind
of goodness we have now. It may
have beon a good kind, but it was
rough ou children. Bo you seo the
holidays of the auclenta must have
been dull times for iheohtldreu, and
they wore.

Yes, Christmas Is the children's
day, you bet. How does it iouio that
papas and mamas are different from
what they used to be, and tho Christ
mas holidays which used to be for
men are now for children? It Is, and
no one can deny it, because Jesus
Christ, whose birth day Christmas
assumes to celebrate, taught the world
that gentleness is n virtue and not a
vice. Ho taught the world that a man
may be brave as a lion and yet gentle
as a girl, and the world has learned
the lesson, and men have got down
off their stilts so they can play with
ohlldren. It don't take them long to

and tasteful green one sees the choic

months past for the holiday trade,
and enough to make the mouth of an
epicure water with anticipation . The

we do but they never ate such meats

season of 1888 and 0. It makes the
