XMAS BEFORE THE MAST
How a Crew Celebrated Merrily Off
the Coast of California in the
A good many of you may have read
Richard II. Dana's Interesting story of
aea life, "Two Years Before the Mast."
Daoa's vessel was collecting hides on
the const of California, when Uint
coast was in a seml-clvlllzed condi
tion, lie thus describes Christmas
among the crew:
"As there were no hides to take
In, and nothing especial to do, the cap
tain gave us a holiday, the first we
had had except Sundays since leav
ing Boston; and we had a plum
dutf for dinner.
"The crew of the Russian brig, lying
alongside us, following the 'old style,'
had celebrated their Christinas 11
days before, when they had a grand
'blow-out;' and (as our men suid)
'had drunk In the forecastle a keg of
gin, ate up a bag of tallow and made
a soup of the skin!' "
Certain it is that Christmas Is the
one universal festival the round world
over; and every resident of a Chris
tian laud carries Christmas in his
heart wherever he may go.
niNCE OF PEACE"
"Old man," wrotu the Hillville citi
ten, "it was my lntendiu' to give you
a fine present fer Christmas, but I
roine short this year by the sheriff
levyln' on my cotton an' the govern
ment on my corn; so I kin only send
you a gallon Jug of the last named,
which ain't much as my ambitions is
fer you; but I'll say this, old boy:
There's enough In that jug to make
you have the jolliest time o' yer life
fer a day or two; ef you can't buy a
circus tic ket, there's a whole circus in
six drams, an' a eternal movln' plctur'
show In 20: so make the most of It!"

The Man In tne Moon.
Hussian folk-lore tells that the man
In the moon whs one who was seeking
the isle in which there is no death
At lust, after traveling far, he found
the longed-for haven ami took up Ills
abode in the moon. After a hundred
years hud passed, death called for him
one Christmas eve and a fierce strug
gle ensued with the moon, who w:s
victorious; and so the man stayed
where he was.
His Wonderful Influence Continues
fid Widens Through the
AH the old troublous questieai ef
Uie origin and destination of the Gail
lee Carpenter have passed, note a
writer In Collier's. All the mediaeval
worrlment in discriminating betweea
human aad divine has gone, all the
puKEled inquiry into the miraculous.
No longer is mankind stirred over the
non-essential. Theories of him fade
away, dogmas ef his nature lose their
charm. His gentleness has conquered.
His influence continues and widens.
Slowly brightening, the gleam that
touched hi in spreads through the
world. His spirit moves on the face
of civilization, and makes it kindlier
every generation. The touch of bis
hand Is on the grief stricken. Nurse,
physician, and nun are the messen
gers of his teaching. The vestal fires
burned out. but never the fires of his
spirit, which answer each other from
mountain-top to mountain-top across
the continents. And deep in the heart
of the people they make family life
sweeter and ease the bitterness of
failure and ignorance and nil life's In
completeness. That wonder-working
personality was never so potent as to
day so insistent and tenderly sure.
I'lidcr a thousuud forms, creeds cud
names, men strve him. And however
far we go in the conquest of nature,
Identifying the north pole, climbing
the sky, prying open electrical forces
mapping out the subliminal, diminish
ing sin, disease, war, poverty, Igno
ranee always in the advance will bt
that gracious figure of the Sinless One
who showed I.ove as the rule of life
One Perfect Maii ardent and gentle
the race will never tire of him.

Forty Years of Longing.
A New iLiilaiul man tells of nil eld

who not lonj; no found herself rich
enough to buy a complete dinner set.
"It seems a sinful waste of money

buck lazily a tail of hair that had
