A Christmas without sponding
money ! Midwinter holidays without
(lolls or picture books, tops, toy can
non or jumping jaeks, colored candies
or any "store presents'' of any kind
whatsoever 1 Christ's nativity cele
brated without a Christnins tr*o or a
Christinas carol or a gathering of the
childrenT-no ovorgreou shrub spark

pantomimo. Could euch a thiug bo in

And it is not so very long ago that
just such a Christmas was tho rule in
three fourths of tho United States
hay, it is tho rulo now in considerable
sections where thero aro no largo
towns. So easily do wo got accustom
ed to what is, and so naturally do
children boliovo that tho system they
first noticed has always been tho sys

and oven tho oidor ones aro forgotting,
that tho Christnins of to day is com

at any rate-a timo whon no money j
could bo "wasted.'' Children must
have their fun without oxtra expense,
save as each child had carefully saved
his pennies. As to deliberately band?
. ing out a half dollar to a boy for
Christmas-tho average father would
os, soon have thought of giving him a
deed for tho farm. It was a season
for rabbit hunting and sledding if
thero was ico, for a good dinner and
au extra piece of pio, and then, per
haps, for some homo made presents.
But times have changed, and the
child ron of to day would not bo satis
fied without a "good timo" on Christ
mas. Now, what's to bo dono .about
it? Money is scarce and the cry of
?'hard times" is heard on evory hand.
