A light snow whs fall ing like millions of spark ling diamonds and pearls, yet Ilegina saw nothing. Her Christmas tree had i not come! It mattered not that the } day was a wonder day and that the eve of Christmas was close at hand. Nothing mattered to Regina save the fact that she had promised her Sunday school class u glorious tree, and that now there was no tree for them. She argued with herself that she might have known that the New Vork shops could not be relied upon to send a tree to the suburbs at so short a notice, but that did not help the altuatlon. Regina shrank from facing those 12 little girls whose smiles would vanish In childish disappointment when they learned that the tree they had been promised was not to be theirs. The tears brimmed over and fell. Regina’s vision was cleared and In the clearing she gazed directly nt the miniature flr tree In the vacant lot next door. A sense of keen delight swept ever Regina. After nil, her chil dren would have a tree! Some 15 minutes Inter Iteglnn np- 1 peared In outdoor costume. She had put on her gymnasium suit, high rub ber boots and her father’s great top coat. Over a riot of curls her snug fur cap fitted closely. "You look for all the world as if you deserved your nickname,” expostu lated Regina’s mother. “Regina, I do hope no one will see you.” Now, this nickname to which Re gina’s mother alluded with distress had been bestowed upon the girl by her father. It was Tommy—no more and no less —Tommy! And Tommy stood for tomboy. You see, the girl was no hothouse flower, even if she did teach a Sunday school class and weep with disappointment. In fact, her father Insisted that the nickname fitted —and secretly lie was proud that it did. For Regtha was distinctly able bodied. She could ride sind swim. She could handle a 20-gauge shotgun nnd a casting rod. Siie was a notable mountaineer. She could paddle a canoe and snii a boat. And (die cared a lot j more for out-of-doors tldngs than she did for dances nnd for social functions. Her idea of happiness was a camp In the woods. “There’s no one for miles around,’’ Reginn laughed, and shouldered an ax. “Unless people who live in the bunga low turn up—l will have the world to myself.” She picked up a big tub with her free hand and trudged off toward the flr tree in the vacant lot. Regina’s eyes were too Intent on her mission to see that a thin curl of smoke was twisting from the chimney of the bungalow that rambled In the lot beyond the vacant one. Regina drew near the coveted tree and her heart expanded lovingly. “What a little beuuty!” she ex claimed half aloud. The little tree stood not much high er than Reglnu. Over Its branches a , veil of smoke seemed to linger. After a moment spent In admiration the girl , put down her big tub and began to dear away the light fall of snow from ( about the roots of the tree. Her , cheeks were gloriously red and the , sparkle In her eyes rivaled the day it self. i When the snow was cleared Fteglna , swung the great nx into the frozen | earth. The ground scarcely respond ed to her strength. She swung j again. - “Hey! What are you doing to that < tree?” Reginn dmpped her nx and gazed In the direction of ttie deep, gnirt mice. A man wus stundlug on tlio veranda of the bungalow. TRIBUTE TO POEM'S AUTHOR Children Gather Around * estmg Place of Writer of “Night Before Christmas."

"I say, there, you—thnt tree belongs to me!" The mun wus coming toward her. Regina stopped and turned. “This Is a vacant lot," she called out with as perity. The npprourhlng man whistled. Ills speed quickened, lie made an Invol untary movement to raise a cap that ( in his haste he had forgotten to put on. “I beg your pardon," his voice had lost the grufT quality. “I thought you were a man—but—that tree Is mine. 1 brought It up from my father’s garden in the South.” David Longhorn spoke rapidly. Re gina’s face was rather startling In Its beauty, and he had a desire to cover her embarrassment. “I huve tuken very special care of that tree." “Very special," Regina suid coldly. "I have lived here a whole summer and no one—” “I have been away—lately." “I don’t see why you leave poor lit tle trees around In vacant lots." Re ginn put In hurriedly, because she felt like crying now that her precious tree was taken from her. "This is my lot.” Langhorn told her. “If you had chopped it down—’’ "I wasn’t chopping it down!” Regina cried indignantly. "I was going to put it very carefully into this tub." She stumbled over her words, but de termined to tell this very good looking man with the red hair thnt she was not a female George Washington. "I ordered a Christmas tree by ex press. and it didn't come. My Sun day school class—l 2 little girls—are expecting a tree tonight In my house, and now —’’ Words failed Regina. She hit her lip nnd looked appealingly up at Langhorn. The man laughed because It was the safest thing to do for the present. “And I have brought down 12 little settlement boys with the sumo prom ise—„nd narry a tree have l got. 1 reckoned on getting one In the vil lage." Regina laughed, and the whole world seemed to echo with the laugh. “I have tried even the department store!" She gazed Into David Lang born’s eyes. "I urn sorry for the poor little souls whom we are disappointing —my class worked so faithfully all last summer. “By Jove," David said. “I read once of some people who had a Christmas tree out of doors! They had great bon fires and the tree was lit by a thou sand candles as well as the stars, and a Santa Claus drove up over the real snow! Couldn’t we do something like that?” .. . "With this tree! How perfectly glorious 1" Regina, beside herself with joy began to sliovet away a greater clearing. David took the shovel from her. "MV kiddles will do thnt—lt will be the treat of their lives." David looked seriously at Iteßlna. "Now bo home and Bet warmed up.

Mot a creature was stirring, not eve. a mouse. cmoon 1 will call properly and In the evening—Christman eve—” he did not finish with words, for the hearts of both David and Regina were overflowing with tidings of great Joy. That evening Santa Claus drove up through the crisp snow and opened his great bags before the little tree. It was a wonder tree there In the va cant lot, and It was hung with a hui*- dred electric bulbs. Six bonfires reared their flames skyward and around and about danced and capered 24 Joyous children. And when the moon was high In the heavens and the spirit of Christmas find entered Into each heart, David and Regina drew the band of children nbout them and led the young voices In the singing of Joyous Christmas carols. And especially did this one, which Regina sang, please the chil dren : It came upon the midnight clear. That glorious son ; of old. From angels bending near the earth. To touch their harps of gold: "Peace on earth, good-will to men,” From heaven’s all-gracious King; The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing. Still through the cloven skies they come With peaceful wings unfurled. And still their heavenly music floats O’er all the weary world; Above Its sad and lowly plains They bend on hovering wing. And even o'er Its Babel-sounds The blessed angels sing. Fes, with the wor of sin and strife, Tho world lias suffered long; Beneath the angel-strain have rollod Two thousand years of wrong; And man, at war with man, hears not Tho love song which they' bring: * C'\ hush tho noise, yo men of strife. And hear the a "els sing! And ye. beneath life’s crushing load. Whose forms are bending low, Who toll along the climbing way. With painful steps and slow— Look now. for glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing: Oh rest beside the weary road And hear the angels sing! And this one: Hark, the glad sound! The Savior come* The Savior promised long; Let every heart prepare a throne And every voice a song! He comes, the prisoners to release. In Satan’s bondage held; The gates of brass before him burst. The Iron fetters yield. He comes, the broken heart to And The bleeding soul to cure,' And with the treasures of His gracs To enrich tho humble poor. Our glad hosannas. Prince of Peace. Thy welcome shall proclaim And heaven’s eternal arches ring With Thy beloved name. But even a Christmas tree celebra tion must come to an end. By and by the children were sung out and tha fires began to get low and the voices of Regina and David trailed off Into silence, and the two Just looked at each other. •'Don’t you think we’d better take the children In now?” said Regina at last. “The fires are getting low.” David was silent for a long mo ment. Then he said slowly and rev erently : •‘The fires will never burn low—Re gina. This Is the night when the Great Spirit of Love was born into our world.’’ This quaint and pretty ceremony, originated by Rev. Milo H. Gates, not only beeps alive the Christmas spirit In the hearts of the children, but Is a deserved tribute to the best-known Christmas poem In the English lan guage. Its history Is not only roman tic, but ns there is question ro to Its. authorship It lias become the subject' of serious literary Inquiry.
