The minister rose from his big give something "to Him", but she
,-halr behind the pulpit, and stepped
toward his audience. He adjusted his
waistcoat, placed two fingers in one
of Its pockets, and "ahemed" several
times. He went through the- usual pre
liminaries that ministers have, and
then got at his business: "I have been
asked," said he, "to announce the
campaign to raise money for a new
General Hospital for the city. The
various other pulpits are endorsing
it, I believe, and I feel that I too, can
sanction It, in all sincerity. Whatever
we do to serve our fellow men, we
are assured that we are doing it unto
'Him.' Many of the parish are In a
position to do more than others, and
I hope that they may feel disposed
to aid to the fullest extent.
"I shall take for my text: 'It is
more blessed to give than to receive.'
He paused to let the words sink in.
"It is deplorable that the feeling
of brotherly kindness is a spasm of
the Christmas tide; that it is link
ed with the calendar; that it finds its
climax In a fixed day. If the vision
of the Babe of Bethlehem would hut
linger, what vast amount of good
might be wrought.
"The Babe Is the focal point of a
new force, which the divine brings
upon the field of human endeavor;
and the personality of Christ, his
tender ministries of helpfulness, his
flipreme sacrifice, becomes a trans
forming power, and the world touch
ed by it becomes tender and unset
fish. "But only once a year do we have

She told her work-worn mother all
about the sermon, and of her anxiety
to help, but her weary mother could
see no way.
But Mury Alice was not satisfied.
Words kept running through her
mind:" In His name, because he
gave His life for us!" She thought
them the most beautiful words she
had ever heard. As she sat upon the
rickety steps, Davey, the alert-eyed
Fox Terrior, her most-prized posses
sion, aside from ."Mother", came and
sat beside her. He had been given to

since. Mary Alice reached out and

Suddenly a great idea was born In
Mary Alice's brain. She recalled the
day, long ago, when the Drummonds
had driven out ' to see her mother
about some work, and how little Ted

love with Davey, and how he had
pleaded with his parents to buy Da

Alive five dollars, (a marvelous sum
to her) but she wouldn't let him go.
Why, she wouldn't have sold him for
all the gold in the world; but they
had told her that If at any time she
changed her mind, to let them know.
Mary Alice spoke low to Davey,
and he sprang' up, following close at
her heels. She went along hurriedly,
lest any hesitation, weaken her re
solve. She rang the Drummond door
bell, and Mrs. Drummond answered
it herself. "What Is It Mary Alice?"
"I want to sell Davey. You 'mem

wnat made you change your
mind, Mary Alice?"
"Its for Him," said Mary Alice
Mary Alice choked back a sob,
"Her died for me, 'n I want to give

"Well, my dear child," there was:
the hint of tears in the woman's
eyes, "you shall have the five dol

Teddy has another dog now."
Mrs. Drummond told the story to
Henry when he came home to lunch.
He was silent for a bit, then he said:
"Poor little kid! She sort of puts us
to shame, doesn't she Emily? I think
