PAUL FLETCHER was in the drawing room waiting for IJda to come. Llda lived with her ' brother, and every time Fletch- ; or called to see her either the brother a wife or his children were In the room, j so there was never a chance to say anything to her alone. At Inst, however, his opportunity had come. It was the day before Christ iiu.s. .-ml Mrs. Safford and the children li::l (,'uiie u- Iht mother's for several days. Now. with Llda left at home with the two servants and her brother not coming till evening. Fletcher could say to her those thing he li.il l,e n loug it.g to say. but which he could not bring himself to write in a letter nor to declare before the assembled family. At length, afier what seemd a very long waiting, some one was coming. He stood up and looked eagerly to ward the doorway! The portiere was thrust aside, and In walked Teddy Teddy, who. in Fletcher's opinion, was the worst pill in the whole box as far as staying power and keen observa tion were concerned. "Ueilo. Teddy." he said, not very cordially. "I thought yod hud gone to spend Christmas with your grandma." I didn't go." said Teddy. "Do you expect a visit from Santa Claus tonight?" "Ob. I s' pose so." wearily. "I'd just like to see him. though!" nis manner grew more animated. "Why. what would you uo?" "I'd tell him what I think of him." "And what Is that?" "Oh. that 1 think he's a fraud! Tie tending he comes in a sleigh when the ground has been bare for a month! And reindeers too! Who does bethink Is going to believe that? Why doesn't lie come on t bicycle?" "I I In fur overcoat would be rather in the way." said Fletcher gravely. "And SANTA CLAUS STOOD BEFORE HIM. he's pretty old. too, and maybe does not know how to ride, and. besides, bow would he bring the presents?" "What's the use of presents, any way? 1 never have anything that's any good." "1 think you have the blues today," ! said Fletcher, and th-ii he did not speak agalu, though Teddy tried to draw him out. j He seemed to be la a brown study, nDd nothing roused luiu till Llda came In, and even then he did not say much and stayed culy a short time. It was In the evening that a card was brought ? Teddy. On It was written "Santa Claus." Teddy's eyes sparkled. "Tell him to come In." be said grandly. A moment later Santa Claus stood before him. a tall, fur clad figure with flowing hair and beard. Teddy shook hands and Introduced the guest to his aunt. "Did you find it good sleighing?" Teddy asked. "And how are the rein deers?" "I did not come on runners, young man." said Santa Claus. "Ferhaps you did not know that there Is no snow on the ground." "Bicycle?" asked Teddy. "No; I came in a motor carriage." "A motor carriage!" cried Teddy In credulously. Then he ran to the win dow and looked out. "It Is. Aunt Llda." be said excitedly, coming back. "You can see it just as plain out un der the electric light." "I did not bring you any presents," 6a Id Santa Claus. "a3 I heard you did not care for them, but I would like to take you for a little ride, if your aunt will go too. I came early." glancing nt the clock, "so that 1 can get back and attend to the boys and girls who like t6 bar. presents." "Of course we will go." said Teddy promptly. I bavo never been In a motor carriage." In a few moments the three were on After exposure, and when you feel a cold coming on, take Foley's Honey and Tar. the great throat and lung remedy.

Teddy was wild with delight, and his iimgHu run on rapidly. At length there were occasional pauses, theu longer ones Interrupted by disjointed remarks. Finally thtre was total silence. Fletch er bent over so that he could see th chi li's face; then he looked at Llda and smiled. 1'hey went on for a little In silence. Fb; her was trying to compose his speech. "I don't know how to say It. ha burst ;ut desperately at length. "1 keep forge? i:ig how 1 look, and If I Kay It the w.iy 1 want to it will be per fectly ridl uious.

"Do y.m mean that you understand without my telling you?" he asked ragerly. "Yes." she answered very low. When the. reached the house Fletch er took Teddy In his arms and carried him in. He laid him gently on the couch In the hail and turned away, thinking the child still slept. "I can step only a moment." Fletch er said. "Is it late?" At that instaut Teddy sat bolt up right, staring about him wildly. He caught sight of his father in an ad joining roore "Oh. papa." be cried, his voice ring ing out clear and shrill. "Oh. papa.

It had been our family custom to put brandy in all the mince pies and to put in at Christmas lime a sufficient amount to enable the partakers thereof to detect that there was really some thing in it. It often weiu so far as to deserve the remark of my grandfather that we put mince pie in our bi'Sfcidy. With this as the family precedent. Imagine the consternation when it was learned that Rev. Jeremiah Seroggins, our new minister and an avowed tee channels, for every other member of the family, including my father, sur reptitiously did the same thing. Later we figured that the mincemeat must have been treated to nigh unto a quart. Mother reserved her brandy until Christina day. when, before the pie ws naked., she added a generous & mount of the strong stuff. With hearts as high as the flaky pie crust Itself we all watched mother vnrvp that pie and serve it. The Rev. Jeremiah Seroggins. be cause of an expressed fondness for pie, was given a big portion. No sooner had we tasted of the flue uish than we discovered that that pie was nothing short of a small sized dis tillery. It was brand led as no other pie had been since the birth of time. You can imagine the cold chills which weut round th. t festal board as we watched the Rev. Jeremiah begin to eat I believe I actually shivered as the first forkful went mouthward. The Grst mouthful was followed by a second and the second By a third. Finally he had finished the whole por tion, and he s"ttled back la his chair. We saw he was a bit embarrassed and expected a real old fashioned temper ance lecture right then and there. The Rev. Jeremiah Seroggins cleared his throat, and. turning to mother, said: "Ah er-my good sister, permit me to con.plimeut you ..pon the ex cellence of this pie. It has a most delicious tlavor. I confess I never tasted anything like it. Would you think me overbold if 1 astd for an other piece?" New York Mail and Ex press. Ecar Up Gracefully.

You can't be so poor as all that. , - Don't spend so much on Christ mas that you can't get even with the butcher and grocer nntll March. Don't give presents that are a pleas ure for ten minutes and a burden and a worry for ten years. Don't, young women, buy uecktles for your men folk; don't encourage them In teing bigger guys than neces sary. Don't give a drum to the children of ynur enemy who works nights. A watchman's rattle is just as good, and It Is chpaper. Don't p-vp your wife something she !"psnt :iro for Just because you want it yourself. This "don't" works the i tlior way just as well. I Don't forget that a basket of fruit or a box of flowers Is just as ulce a pres ent In many cases as something that will last a good deal longer. Don't try to find the price marks on the gifts you receive. If the gifts are worth having they mean something above dollars and cents. Don't forget the Hob Cratcblts and the Tiny Tims that Is. unless you are , unreg'.'iierate Old Scrooge, in which cafe forget fulness can be explained. Don't put off everything to the last, : because you bud better for the Joy of your friends give nothing than wear yourself out and be as cross as two sticks when the blessed day comes. - Don't waste any of your pity on the long haired youths who lie at the bot tom of the heap In football scrim mages. You willeed all j-our pity for yourself In the rush at the holiday counter. Don't check off each gift you receive against each present that you gave and calculate whether you made or lost. Chri?tmas is not the time to be any smaller or meaner than you can help. Don't oppress children who are sa tiated to sadness with toys already by giving them more. There are other ways of making them happy, or if there are not it Is because they are spoiled with many pleasures and are the most pitiful beings alive. In that case let them try doing something for poor children, who are blessed In powers of enjoyment, and see If the capacity won't prove catching. Don't neglect. If you are a woman, to lay in a stock of some simple things like handkerchiefs and sachet bags for unexpected emergencies If you like to meet varloas people with a reasonable token. Don't set your own happiness op as the chief thing to' be looked out for at Chistinas time. Try to make other people happy and forget yourself, then you wbl be surprised to see how really ,happy you are. Don't give a book to a man with a big library or a picture to the mau who makes a ppeclalty of the fine arts unless you know pretty well what he wants Ten to one he'd rather do the : living of sur-h things for himself.

A- OUR CHRISTMAS ON THE PLAINS f NEVER shall forget our Christmas S dinner iu a construction camp In the year 1000. said a former Colo radoan Wo were building a res 'i voir out on the plains about ten mill's east of pueblo. We bad 150 men on the Job. all white men. We had a poor cook on the Job and rouldn't seem to find any other. As n result there had been men leaving every day and constant grumbling all the fall, and It came to n head Christ mas day. It was a beau l If til. bright Colorado Christmas. The men were to work In the morning, stave a turkey dintiet nt noon and lay off In the afternoon. The o'd mah had bought three pounds of turkey rT man 150 pounds. The birds had come out the day before. About ten minutes after noon I heard a kind of an angry roar outside. 1 never heard anything like It before, nnd It made me Jump. It meant trou ble of some kind. 1 hurried out and eaw a surging mob at the door of the cook tent. The men were all shaking their fists In the air and yelling with one steady, hoarse, prolonged yell. I went around behind the tent and slip ped In. There stood the cook raging, fighting drunk, brandishing a meat ox and emitting a steady stream of pro fanity. In front of blm surged the mob. Just out of reach of the meat ax, crazy mad. I didn't blame them. They had come off work with their mouths all made up for turkey, and not a table was set. not a spark of fire in the stove and 450 pounds of turkey scattered over the section of alkali plain which formed the floor. The battle was short. The men ran In behind the cook, tripped him and the minute ho was down had a rope around him. "Uang him. hang him! they roared and started off with him to the meat pole. In all my life I never was so scared as I was that day. I didn't care In the lo::t whether the man was hang ed, drowned or died In his bed. Yet civilization rose up hi me. and I knew I bad to save. him. I ran like a deer to get around the crowd and reach the me:tt Mle first, and all the while I HKANLU8H1NO A MCAT AX. ran 1 was cursing the cook. When they got to the meat pole they found me on a Itox facing them with a guff. -What do you want?" they roared. "Get quiet." said 1. Those iu front called out. "Shut up! When they were still 1 said: -Boya, I'm sorry this tbiug has happened. It's my fault for tiot watching thia fool ct.rtii-r. P.ut we can wash those tur keys and have a good dinner yet If Rome of you'll turn iu and help me. They aren't hurt nay. As for thia scum of a cook. I don't care any more about blm than you do. But I'm in charge here and 1 can't let him be hanged. You can go ahead and hang him if you want to. but you'll have to kill me first. Now go ahead." I waited, bat no one stirred. There were plenty of guns In t be crowd, tut no one was ready to undertake the job of killing uie. I gave them only minute to think. Then 1 said to the man that held the rope. "Cutle blm." He did It. -Oet out cf here." I said to tb- cook The fellow got op. white as death with fear. Then I turned to the men and asked If there were any who bad ever done sny cooking, who would help ro. Half a dozen volunteered. We washed the turkeys and put them on to bolt. 1 never worked over anything In my life as I did that Christmas dinner. Tte men were still silent and sullen, and I didn't tnow but they'd bang roe If the dinner didn't suit tbem. 1 tried desperately to remember all the cook In; Ud ever seen my mother do. and thanked tied when I found that one i f the men could make pies and an other cda biscuit. About 5 o'clock we had the !et dinner the amp could turn out. boUed turkey, boffed potato, canned 'uash. canned corn, canned peaches, drlcj apple pie. hot biscuit and coffee -New York Pre This la Worth Rememberlaz..
