The eighteen hundred and eighty-third
Minivoriary of the Babe of Bethlehem
las come , and gene and Tfilh it Uio usual
oy nnd festivity which gathers nround the
anniversary of that sivcred event.
Christmas eve is tin hour of rejoicing
and merry making Tvhorovor the Chris
tian religion is known. It has comedown
through the ages , and , instead of the in
terest tn thia occasion diminishing , it is
constantly on the increase and probably
will bo so until the end of time.
With -this glad Christmas tide come
the tokens of love given by ono dear
friend io anotkor , and this example sot
by the wise men , on .they lavished their
gifta of frankincense and myrrh upon the
Babe in the manger , is likewise closely
followed , and many a heart ia caused to
leap with joy as the tears of thanksgiving
course down the chocks , as n little mess
enger of love is received from dear ones
far away.
Monday night was ancason of rejoicing
in this city , such as has never Doforo
been equalled. The good citizens of this
place have been abundantly blessed in
the year which is past and gone and
never before have they boon so able to
bestow gifts upon their loved ones as
now and right well they have improved
the opportunity , as is proven by the
enormous amount of holiday goods which
have been bought and sold in this city
during the past month. Year by year
the quality of Christmas gifts improve
and instead of light , trashy stuff , which
has been sold in nuch largo quantities
in former years , more substantial articles
\voroKubstitutod. To bo sure there are
moro or less of these toys sold each year ,
and always will bo BO long as there are
children , for what would Christmas bo to
t'lo six-year-old without the little jump
ing jack or the toy whistle , or the tin
i cam-boat or locomotive engine. These
things nro just as essential to complete
the happiness of the child , as are air and
water essential to the life of man.
Inhundrods of housosinOmahaMonday
night there was Huch rejoicing as is only
had upon Christinas evo. There , in one
corner of the parlor , stood the beautiful
Christtniis tree trimmed with long strings
of pop corn and tinsel , while myriads of
traxon tapers added a dazzling brilliancy
the scone. In addition to these , the
roe was loaded with presents for the
arious members of the family , and the
whole presented a scene which made the
ihildron fairly shout for joy as the doors
were thrown open and they were per-
nitted to gaze upon the beautiful objects ,
and not alone the children , but the older
tnps who hod boon instrumental in
> ringing about this state of things , were
carried unck to their childhood days , and
hey entered into the merry-making
with n zest _ which they would
lot have believed they wore ca-
mblo of. If there is any-
hing which truly rejoices the heart of
, ho parent , it is to bo able to bring joy
md happiness to the hearts of the dear
ittlo 01101 , for whoso existence they are
responsible , and many a heart was made
lappy in this way last night. A BEK re

As wo loft the houao and wandered up
ind down the streets , wo piumed many
liomoa wherein like festivities were in
progress , and before Homo of the bril
liantly lighted windows wo stood lost in
thought and our mind wandered from
ho gay and festive sccno to the lowly
ot or the hovel .ivero the lavish hand
never bestows its gifts , but it was too
sad u contrast and we shook ourselves
from the lethargy and drifted nway like
a wood bcforo the wind in search of an
other item.
As wo wandered along wo came in
front of the
and from within came the sound of merry
voices and the glad notes of song aa if
inviting uu to ontor. Wo obeyed the
summons , and walking up the stops
pushed the largo door upon its hitmen ,
and stood looking upon n most happy
ocpno. The church was appropriately
trimmed , and in the front part stood n
largo Christinas troo. The children were
nil jubilant und each one of them vras
presented with n little pall of candy.
The services were both interesting and
At Trinity Cathedral there was the
regular carol service and it was attended
by a largo number of both young and
old. The singing was led by n chorus of

A goodly crowd was present at the
skating riufe who could rcay moro enjoy ,
incut out of n glide over the amooth Hour
on rollers than in any other way. The
lull was beAUtifully trimmed for the
holidays nnd looked very pretty ,
The gambling halls and saloons were
all well jiatronizod , as they always ore
upun holiday occasions , and many a jolly
good .health wan thrown down last night ,
preparatory to the regular "awcaring off'
on Mow Yoar'a day , and yet for all that
very little drunkenness won noticeable
upon the stroeU. In some of the saloons
elegant lunches were served and all was
merry , nnd Christmas day was ushered in

Wo doubt if thjro has over bocnn
imo , not for n\diiy years at least , when
Christmas duy vrns as mild nnd pleasant
was yesterday. Instead of the bleak
tid chilling blasts of December , the
tear sky nnd balmy breezes of spring
vcro hero , nnd , aa wo listened , wo fan

"How little it seems like Christmas , "
was the romnrk on every side nnd how ,
rue it was. The word Christmas
ndicatcs the merry jingle of sleigh-bells
nnd the happy sleighing party , nnd a
Christmas without snow is like a Fourth
of July without fire-crackers.
This may , in n measure , account for
, ho quietness of the day in this city.
The places of business were nil closed
early in the day , and the streets pre
sented moro of a Sunday npponrance
than of n holiday.
Tliero was nothing in particular to at
tract the attention of the public , nnd the
looplo wandered listlessly about the
streets during the forenoon , with no ap
parent object in view.
After the Christmas dinners had boon
Imposed of , however , the numbers of
icoplo upon tlio streets increased , and
hey were going up nnd down , some to
visit friends and some to other places.
Boyd's opera house was well filled in
, ho afternoon with people to witness the
> reduction of "Ltapot , the Tomboy , " by
ho Leonard Grover Comedy company.
L'ho company were very well received , and
some parts of the play were well rendered
and called forth hearty applause. Tlio
lame play was given in the evening.
In the nftornoon the attendance was
: iot so largo , but in the evening a largo
crowd assembled to witness the exhibi
tion skating by Prof. Daniels and Muster
Bert Bliss , n ten year old from DCS
Moincs , lown. Together they did some
very fine work and the little shaver is
ertainly n wonder on wheels. Ho is as
graceful and active as can bo nnd will
doubtless bo the prince of roller skating
in u few years.
After the double exhibition , Prof.
Daniels delighted his many admirers by
an exhibition of his skill. It is needless
to say that it was immense. '
Good mutac was in attendance and
everybody hud n most excellent time.
Under the management of Mr. Daniels ,
the roller rink is becoming a most favor-
it ronort for male and female , both young
and old.
Appropriate Christmas services were
lield in Trinity Cathodial yesterday fore
noon and evening. Tbo music prepared
for the occasion was most excellent. The
church was beautifully trimmed and dec
orated for the occasion.
The Sunday school of the South Omaha
M E. church , gave their entertainment
it their church , corner of Tenth aud
Pierce street , last night.
The Christmas tree was a largo one ,
and was fairly loaded down with presents
'or the little ones.
GOP. 0. 0. Howard delivered a very
fine address to the little ones , which was
anxiously listened to. Mr. G. W. Tib-
tmls had charge of the singing , which
was good.
The little ones enjoyed themselves

The Christmas festival for the Sunday
school of the Baptist church , wns hold
lust evening nnd was n thoroughly enjoy
able nllnir. The entertainment consisted
of recitations , dialogues , solos , duota
and choruses by the children , and these
wore well selected and well rendered.
The room was handsomely decorated with
( Ings , the most attractive feature being ,
of course , the Christmas tree , well laden
with handsomeprosentu for the children.
The appearance of Santa Claus , who dis
tributed the presents , assisted by six lit
tie faiiios , was the c'ojing and most at
tractive feature ot tlio evening. The
house- was packed with people , many
being obliged to stand the entire evening.

At the First M. E. church a largo
crowd of children nnd grown people
gathered last evening. A Christmas tree
was the feature of the evening , but mom *
bcrs of the Sunday school contributed to
the evening's enjoyment by recitations ,

every ono was happy.
tlio services were as usual grand and im
pressive. High mass was celebrated al
live in the morning by the pastor , Rev.
Fr. O'Connor. The church \\na thronged.
The main altar was beautifully decorator
with natural and artificial ilowera , ant
lit un by dozens of tapers. Above al
the illuminated star to'd ' the story of the
birth of the Saviour as plainly as columns

Yesterday afternoon as three workmen
were engaged in excavating under Dr.
'eaboJj's ' house , corner Fourteenth and
Jones btrcot , the wall of dirt gave way ,
mrying ono o ( the men , Charles Forrest
> y name
The bank was about cloven feet high ,
and the men had dug under it for ft dis
tance of eighteen inches , when it caved
n upon thorn. The falling dirt caught
'orrest upon the legs and buried him
nearly up to his hips.
Ho WAS itnmpdiatoly extricated and
moved to his residence , only n few doors
distant , whore ho died about 4 o'clock. _
The coroner was notified and imincdi-
itoly empaneled a jury , who upon hear-
ng the evidence , state that they found
.hat the diseased came to his death by a
HOBS of earth falling upon him at the
ilnco above mentioned.
It is the prevailing opinion that a
argo chunk of dirt must have fallen upon
lim in such n manner as to have injured
lim internally.
Ho vrns about 37 years of ago and
eaves a wife to mourn his losa.
His funeral will take place to-morrow.

If it rains , do not hoaitato to apply to
the clerk for an umbrella. Ho koopa a
largo stock constantly on hand , which ho
loans cheerfully to guests of the
house. Ho does not expect you to bring
it bock.
Do not neglect to look over the tele
grama several times a day. It gives you
an air of importance ; and , if you think o
it , you might ask the clerk if "tho Hon.
Mr. So-and-So" had called foryou"flinco
you wont out the last time. "
Above all things , do not fail to inquire
the titno the trains on nil the diHbron
roads take their departure. Do this lonj ,
