Standing humbly alono In Library

Christmas tree, Jtwolod with tokens
of love, brilliant with lights of joy.
Sllhouetod ngalnst a dark curtain of
cloud that xliiit out tho twinkling
sparks nf the Milky Way, It graceful
boughs reaching out toward tho
gloom beyond, it stood a gloaming
shimmering symbol nf jienco on earth,
good will toward men. At Its portal,
with folded wings, knelt Spirit, with
n mossngo of gratitude for tho purity
of tho chlld-hoart which imparted to
this happy ovent Us;sacrod moaning,
For a moment of hush without sus
pense, a sllonco that yet seomod to

The soul of tho multitude, was In

and Intelligence So strong and pure
