I have never taken much stock in this Christ mas foolishness, it seems to me that people carry it to an absurd extreme; but, as I have said, I am going tc break away from my custom this year. You are helping to support yout widowed mother, are you not?” The boy who f marked the quo- | * ‘'Qk t-,'"'"‘x /j t tations up on the , j • AA| bi g blackboard made a strong 'y effort to conceal J? his emotion as he /*;£ answered: mBB&S&m “Yes, sir.

What I start ed to e . a moment ago was that I in tend to do something to encourage you in your work —something to prove to you that I wish you well and that, howe, I iy nave at times 1 am kind at heart.” “Oh, thank you, sir,” said the boy. “Mother will be proud when she learns that I have been able to win your respect.” “I like to hear a boy talk as you talk,” the eminent gentleman contin ued. “A boy who is glad for his mother’s sake to win the approval of others may always be depended upon to give a good account of himself. You may not have suspected it, but I have for a long time been watching you.

It is evident that you have an estimable mother. With such a mother and such a character as you seem to possess I have no doubt that you will succeed in life. It would be a pity to disturb your self-reliance by giving you money. I shall not do that. I do not believe in giving money to people anyhow. It is a bad prac tice. There are other ways of ex tending help that are much more ef fective —much better for those who receive it. Now it is my purpose to do something for you.” “I —I hardly know how to thank you, sir.” . • “Oh, never mind that, my boy. The most eloquent thanks are not always expressed in words.

But I need not dwell upon that. I have found it extremely comfortable. It has caused me to feel sorry for others who cannot afford such coats. I think it must be the Christmas spirit that has come to me. With the col lar of my warm coat turned up so that it covers my ears I am able to keep comfortable in the coldest •weather.” The boy felt a lump rising in his throat and he was compelled to wink rapidly to keep back his tears of gratitude. “This morning,” Mr. Bilger con tinued, “I found a pair of plush ear muffs that I used last winter, and 1 .have decided to present them to you.” TO BE A TIME OF JOY FOR HIM . Tlii* Little Story S!:ow* Just What a Lot of Good Things the Bachelor Misses at Merry Christmas Time “7.1 y wife has b»en questioning me for the past three weeks about what I would like for Christmas.” “Well, I suppose you told her?” “Yes. The first thing I thought of was an umbrella. I really need an umbrella, because It is quite a dis tance from my house to the train, and I have to walk it. A nice umbrel la would come in handy on rainy days. Then there are some books I would like very much. I gave her a list of them as nearly as I could at the start, and have been adding to it day by day as I happened to think of something else in that line. I men tioned cuff-buttons and studs for full dress occasions, and I gave her to un derstand that if she didn’t feel like troubling herself over the matter I would be glad to take the money she had set aside for me and buy myself some cigars. Last night I had occa sion to look into a closet we don’t use much, and there I found my present, all ready to be placed before me on Christmas morning.” “Os course, then, she hadn't adopt ed your suggestion as to the cigars.” “No. I'm going to be made glad with a beautifully worked sofa pillow.” At (Etinstmas (Him? By S. E. KISER Along the road to Bethlehem I hree weary wise men slowly fared. And wondering shepherds gazed at them And bowed the heads which they had bared — Three wise men who had journeyed far Rode slowly o’er the hills that night. Still following their guiding star Whose constant beams were broad and bright. At Christmas time they heard a voice That sweetly sounded far on high; “ Rejoice, ye aons of men, rejoice I ” The words rang clearly from the sky. The trembling wise men paused to The song that angels sang to them, And ceased to doubt and turned from fear. That Christmas night in Bethlehem. We hurry through the busy days And in the market-place contend; i We strive to win in shameful ways, Forsaking brother, wronging friend; We foster greed and cling to pride. We have no time for being kind. We rudely push the lame aside. And give no guidance to the blind. We madly struggle after gain, Forgetting all the Master taught; We worship riches, and disdain To heed the message that He brought--* Yet, even so. at Christmas, love Assails our hearts and chasten* them And brings us glad remembrance of That holy night in Bethlehem. tnJSSk __ We rea<=e a little while to hate, We turn a little whilp from sin; We greet the stranger at the gate. And reaching forth we lead him in. And. happily remembering The babe that in the manger lay. We still acknowledge Him our King, As they did, that first Christmas day. Three shadowy wise men slowly fare Along the shadowy highway still, And shadowy shepherds watch them them And see the star blaze o'er the hill, And men, wherever men may dwell, StiM hear the message borne to them; T hat God still reigns and all is well, The star shines on o'er Bethlehem. Child's Reasoning. "Mamma, Santa Claus isn't married, Is he?” “I don’t know.

MAHONEY Real Estate and Insurance •••• Buy and sell any and all kinds real estate i Rental Collections Made For Out-of-Town Parties i - 1 i Mr. Glenfaddlp startpd out. shout two wpplcs boforp Christmas to sol re j the servant problem. “The trouble with "women.” he said i to his wife, that they don't go at the thing right. This trouble will never be settled until it is settled by diplomacy, and diplomacy is a thing that, I am sorry to say, doesn’t come natural to women. Servant girls are only tinman —that's a thing which is too often forgotten. Treat your girls kindly and they will stand by you. That’s the rule I go by in my bugi % q sp affairs. What kind of a time do you suppose I would have with the men In my office if I tried to manage them as a woman manages the help in her kitchen? Why, I’d always hare to keep breaking In new people. "Now let me give you a few point ers, Get something nice for the girl on Christmas—something that you would be jjdad to have yourself. Most women give their servants a few cheap trinkets that serve no other purpose than to show the girls that they are put away down In the social scale. “Instead of getting her a ten-cent, comb or a new contrivance to scrape the crumbs off the dining-room table, buy her a nice present this year. Give her something she will be proud to show to her friends. Then, you see. they will get to envying her and com- I paring their own cheap presents with j what she got from us. and what'll b<* “Emma Has Given Me Notice.” the result? She’ll conclude that this is a pretty good place to work; she’ll see that we give her credit for pos sessing good taste, and we will have no more trouble over the servant problem for awhile anyway.” Mrs Glenfaddle decided to take her husband's advice for once. If the sol emn truth must be told, she has never become addicted to the habit of doing this. But there seemed to be a few gleams of reason in his argument, and accordingly she decided to make her Emma thrice glad on Christmas morning, The girl had been very pa tient and faithful for quite a while anyway, and it was no more than right that merit should be rewarded. Among the things in the box which Emma found on the kitchen table when she went down to get breakfast on the morning of the great day were cloth for a fine new dress, a toilet set for her bureau, a glove box with a pair of gloves in it, and a purse made of peal leather. The next, day when Mr. Glenfaddle got home his wife said: “Oh. hv the way, Arthur. I wish you’d put, an ad. in the paper tomor row. Emma has given me notice that she will leave us a week from Thurs day. She has found a place where she can get 25 cents a week more than we are paving her.’’ Lest They forget.
