The IAO boys were rdl in the world to each other
Ihcir parents were deed and Joe the elder was a
DrwsblY who by hard work and good management
vas able to provide for himself and his little
brother Tom a hopeless cripple who could walk
July by the aid of atches They lived in a small
jvnni on the sixth f Ip or of an east side tenement
> cw York It required all of Joes earnings aug
mented by a small weekly allowance from the So
t tidy of bt Vincent de Paul to pay rent and pur
J 1 cliahc the cheapest food But they were happy be
l cause they loved eauli other with true brotherly love
On Sunday they vent to mass and Sunday school
in the morning arid sometime in the afternoon
tbcv visited Cenlml park to see tho animals They
would stand before the monkey cage for hours en
jovin the mischievous antics which gave so much
pleasure to the poor little cripple
It was only three days before the anniversary
of the coming of the Christ Child The shop win
dows were filled with almost everything the human
mind could imagine or everything the human heart
could desire Oar a previous Sunday the two boys
lad gone down Broadway as far as the Battery
stopping before the wellfilled windows to look at
tbe display of Toys and other Christmas attrac
tions In one iviiidow Tom saw something for
which his childish heart longed A child often
craves a toy more than a miser craves gold But
the crippled child was too thoughtful to impose
upon his brother so much as to ask him to pur
chase the desitre of his heart for he knew that it
is a little difficult for poor boys in New York to
Ij earn money fior the purpose of buying fivedoll
Christmas presents He did not know that in a
j certain box tl at once belonged to his mother there
vas almost enough money to buy that precious ar
1 ticle During tho summer and autumn Joe had
worked hard that he might save enough to pur
chase a suit of clothing and a toy for Tom at
tl Christina That he might add to the pennies in
the box Joe had run many errands and had ear
j ned many packages when his other work was fin
1 ihed i That mysterious box contained nearly five
I dollars and Joe expected to add to the sami before
Christmas pre when he would make his important
The day after the two boys had wandered down
Broadway Joe bade his little brother goodbye as
soon as they had finished their breakfast of bread
and milk and hurried to the Herald office for
iptrs < to sell to the early birds as he styled those
who startedto work at 7 oclock He knew a num
Imf boys and they were all kind to one another
luPtimes advancing a loan to an unfortunate
niEpaiiion without requiring security That morn
ing lie missed one of his friends a redheaded Irish
Joy known as Little Billy He remembered that
IIP had not been about for several days and he
called to the boy in front of him in the long line
I Bud a led Say Mike is Little Billy sickf
I Xo Joe replied Mike Little Billy is locked
I po The oops got him but it wasnt his fault He
i i is up for thirty days I am downright sorry for
I tlir little cubs for he is square all through
I Joes face grew sad and at the risk of losing
his place tu line he begged Mike to step aside long
enough to tell him all about Litile Billys misfor
tune for he imagined that the poor boy had of
fended in some way the majesty of the law of the
j great city of New York
You sec said Mike the boys were all the
1 time imposing on the little cub because he wouldnt
lie swear nor smoke cigarettes One day lasfweek
he was picking up a bundle down at the Battery
for a poor old lame woman A big boy pushed him
over and be fell against the woman and she was
hurt so much that two of the cops took her to the
hospital and another cop took Little Billy to the
I station house and he was fined five dollars and
because he couldn pay the five they locked him
up for thirty days
Joe asked where Little Billy was confined He
lad made up his mind what to do He had heard
the priest say We should show our love for the
Christ Child at all times but especially at Christ
Mas and he knew that the best way to show love
for Him is to help those who are in trouble While
it grieved him much to deprive his own brother of
a Christmas present he did not hesitate to use the
money in the black box to pay Little Billys fine
Then he counted the dimes nickles and pennies
lie found that he had four dollars and sixty cents
1 The fine was five dollars How could he get the
1 forty cents which he must have before he could set
his little friend free He did not sit down to ad
mit his helplessness but to think how he could earn
the money He looked out the window and was de
lighted to see that the snow was falling in great
vhit < flakes He put his brother to bed and went
Ot > and soon earned fifty cents by sweeping side
walks The next morning he paid the fine and
Ins brother newsboys contributed a little sum to
ut Little Billy on hip feet Joe was happy but
for the thought of the little cripple at home who
Tumid have so poor aChristmas
That night as Joe and Tom sat close to their
little 1 stove Tom crawled on Joes lap and putting
Ins army around his neck asked Joe did you see
that hobby horse in the window last Sunday I
1 j1 i h I had five dollars I would give it to you to
Vv it for me If I had it I could ride when you
w not here
Jon tried hard to keep his tears back whilelie
> ti Sever mind Tom Ill get it for you bj

The two boys went to bed but only one fell
because his
I P Joe was restless aud unhappy
iProtllers stocking would be empty on Christmas
Hlvrniug lever had he so longed for money as
hI did that night and when Tom was sleeping he
r e and knelt by the side of his bed and asked the
Infant Jesus to send Tom something for the great
trait l day
rj h next morning Joe went downtown with a
x i1 1 heart Every window he passed seemed to con
tain a hobby horse and yet his poor lonely lame
litle brother could not have one He thought of
W litany homes in that rich city would be made
happy Christmas morning1 and of how drear it
° wld bp in at least one home and that one his own
ire 1 did not realize the st1J fact that in hundreds of
Itnnm in the great city there were clouds darker

The night before Christmas Little Billy and
Joe worked hard in the llntteis room after Ton
had gone to bed lamenting because his brother told

many places to visit His surprise may be imag
ined in the morning when he found Christmas
tree beneath the branches of wBich stood the fa
coons hobby horse on whose back was large pack
age containing everything the child could imagine
or desire He was not less delighted to see Joe

Later in the day Little Billy piloted his uncle
to the boys room and before Ihe left it was settled
that Joe and Tom Were to live with Afrs Maloney

they might be prepared to earn the necessaries o1
life without selling papers on the street Hilton

Who Gets the Scolding i
It is a very backward child that < does not xnow 1
how to lay the blame on somebody elses shoulders
Little Katharine does mot belong to that class
Her grandmother had gone downstairs for a
few minutes leaving Katharine sailing some tin
ducks with a magnet in > a bowl < of water Pretty
soon her grandfather looked up from his book The
little gir had succeeded in drenching herself from
head to foot j
Why why 1 he exclaimed in dismay iffihat

Two kinds of Courtesy
There are two distinct Hands or courtesy ones
is of the heart and the other is of the head One
is the expression of genuine kindness and good
will while the other is merely the result of good
breeding One says lI beg your pardon because
it would he < bad form not to do so The other
says it from the heart Some one has said that
politeness is artificial goodnature hut a clearer
thinker comes nearer the truth when he says that
goodnature 1S natural politeness Courtesy re
sulting from mere goodbreeding Says and does
pleasant and polite things in an exquisite manner
with which the heart has nothing to do Joah was
courteous when according to the approved custom
of the time he took Amasa by the beard to kiss him
saying Art thou in health my brother Never
tlielessovithliis freehand + did Joab grasp his sword
and smite Amasa under the fifth rib to his death
This coldhlooded kind of courtesy obtains to the
present day and so well is it affected that it often
passes for courtesy of the heart But it will not
stand the tests that true courtesy will stand Cour J
tesy of the heart makes no distinctions It never
lapses into unkindness and rudeness when talking
to the lowest of ones inferiors and it is mover ser
vile before its superiors It is an attribute pecul
iarly gracious antI charming in women and ° they
who possess it add largely to the growing beauty
and sweetness and good of the world
The Art of Compliment
There is still an art of compliment and it is
still practiced worthily and unworthily The flat
terer of today deals little in words He acts and
above all he imitates We all imitate each other
with ra pitiful diligence All classes try to dress
alike With sad want of dignity men and women
fear to take their own line to show the kind of hos
pitality nviiidh best befits their incomes to wear
the clothes most convenient for their work to talk
upon the subjects which interest them to express I
the disapproval Which the class above them ridicule
and the admiration which offends tthc fashion lead
ers of literature and art
The art of compliment may however be well l
worth the study of all those who value the pleasant
ness of life above its pleasures Graciousness is
never out of fashion We must tell our friends
from time to time what we think of them There
are reserves which blight the whole beauty of life
But we must be at the pains to tell them in the I
right way for friendship some df its aspects ib
an art Again if we hope to get much enjoyment
out of social I life we must take the trouble show
ourselves well disposeH and must know how to turn
indifferent insignificant occasions to account
I Smile On Me
A sweet story is told of the little three yearold
girl the pet of the household who came down a
few minutes late to breakfast She had one foot
on the rounfl of < hor clmir but was not allowed to
climb up until her papa had asked the blessing
Then she looked mound her and saw that the fam
ily were offended and her childs heart was broken
Qh mamma she cried < with quivering lips
i smile on inc5
The IIiIlFs impulse was natural A smile means
I cheer love sunshine Jrtnd the cry of the human
heart always is SmileOn me
We all know howloneliness and heartache play
ibe cased and how the aspect of n whole day may
the dhanged by u kindly glance a friendly look Let
us see to it that we do not withhold this comfort
from one another In heaven God shall wipe i away
the tears from all eyes Let us anticipate heaven
and make earth as much like it as possible by re
menibeiitig ihe little childs cry Smile on mo
Unselfish Boy
