Groups of Carolers Stood at Street

Groups or caroler stood at street
corners nnd sang. Hundred of people
strolled up nnd down. There was nn
atmosphere of good will that pervaded
the place as surely as wreaths hung
lu the windows.
There was one house In particular
that glowed with a shining brilliance.
Tart of this light was due to s pyra

happy sounds which Issued forth
through the open door. This place wns

Miss Mfxter never knew exactly
how It happened. She was hurrying
home after a hard tlay's sewing In a
dressmakers shop. She whs tired and
hungry. Christinas Kve to her merely

She stopped for a moment to look In
through the door of this happy, shin
ing house. And then, almost unaware
of what she did, she walked In. Yes,
she actually did. And she had no
more Idea of who lived there than a
maple tree on Boston Common I Some
thing drew her straight to the fire
place. She went as naturally as a
bee seeks honey.
In that merry, well-dressed throng
!ie looked a bit rusty. Her hat was
entirely too old. There was some
thing wrong In the cut of her coat.
Her gloves had seen hard service. And
her shoes, well her shoes were the
despair of cobblers.
Miss Mlxter began talking to a
laughing-eyed woman dressed In green.
"You look like a daffodil," said Miss
Mlxter. And this pleased her hostess
so much that she burst Into a peal of
From that moment they seemed to
have a great deal to say to each other.
Then, suddenly looking uhout her,
Miss Mlxter saw bIio wns the center
of attention. I Huong of Interested
people wero regarding her with
amused eyes.
A quick reaction swept over her.
She felt lonely nnd afraid. Why was
she here? Who were these people?
Why had she come Into this house?
She felt n quiet hand on her arm.
"Do stay, won't you?" begged the
hostess In green," I need someone to
help me. Couldn't you spare a moment'

people nnd tell me who Is served andl
who Is not. It's so dllllcult."
Miss Mlxter looked tip keenly Into1

was genuinely wanted.

To Get and Give Most
Pleasure at Christmas
T"HEItE is Christmas generosity and
Christinas charity.
But there should always be Christ
tuns tact.
When you are giving to those who
have not as much as you have do nut
give your presents with condescending
manner or with a patronizing air.
do not act as though you were
superior because you could give. Do
not attach a cold, haughty speech to
your gift.
Sometimes people can give so that
all the glow that comes from Hie gift
Is the one they themselves receive be
cause of their own feeling of having
been charitable. Sometimes such
speech enn extract all the real pleasure
out of the gift to the one receiving It
Christmas Is the time for true char
ity, for that charity which conies from
the heart, which loves one's fellow men
and wants to do all that Is possible
to bring Joy wherever possible.
Olve as though It were a pleasure
to give not as though you were being
Do not give as though you thought
by giving you had the right to assume
8 certain attitude of disdain toward
those who were somewhat beholden
to you.
If you are more fortunate in worldly
goods It Is your opportunity to have
the great pleasure that Is derived by
giving. There nre few greater pleas
ures when you give with tlie real
Christmas spirit.
There Is Christmas generosity and
Christinas charity.
Itut there should always be Clirlst

dead three years. How the father had
kept such a young fumlly together was
a miracle even to him, but with the
help of the day nursery, he had man
aged very well.
For the third Christmas now the
widower tucked the children snugly In
bed with a promise to call them at
daybreak. Then he tiptoed to his own
Half an hour later when the house
was quiet, nnta Claus entered the
tiny kitchen and proceeded to fill the
four little stockings hanging in a row
behind the stove. Then suddenly he
remembered that he had forgotten to
bring a present for the father of the
house. How disappointed the little
ones would be to have their father
overlooked like this ! Why, they would
think he's not been good! But It was
too late, now, to get him anything.
Nothing could be done.
Shortly after the house was quiet
once again, the little girl stole into
the kitchen nnd hung a stocking with a
packuge In it near the others. For
months she had saved her pennies so
that when Christmas came again she
would be able to play Santa Claus to
daddy. "How surprised 'n happy he
will be," she thought, as she crept
back to her room. H. Lucius Cook.

Burning the Yule Log
The burning of the Yule log at
Christmas time, In parts of England
and the continent, Is a survival from
an ancient festival annually held
among the northern nations to cele
brate the return of the sun after the
winter solstice (December 21). The
Yule log Is thought to bring good for
tune, and frequently part of it is
saved to light the new one in the fol
lowing year. The Italians regard the
charred Yule log as a preventive
against lightning. "Yule" is an old
word for Christmas, and Is still so
used provincially.

The old-fashioned boy who used to
get an apple, an orange, a handful of
mixed nuts, a dime's worth of powder
and shot or a new pair of home-knit
socks for Christmas now has a grand
son who must have a new car, a dia
mond ring, and a check. Times change.

Mr. Smiles But why do you expect
a Christmas box from me? Surely I
have bad no dealings with you?
