THE DAY OF
THE room wan quite dark. There
Is never much light at 7 o'clock
on a December morning, and the
thick curtains shut out any faint
trvaka of dawn that might have been
outside. But neither light nor dark
ness mattered to one of'the occupants
of the room. He sat up in bed; for
one moment he rubbed bis fingers in
his sleepy eyes to make sure he waH
quite awake, aud then he proceeded
to arouse the other person in the room,
who was still peacefully sleeping.
"Mother, mother, wake up! It's my
birthday, and the day of my party."
ThJlip," she said, "It is not time
to get np yet. Co back to your own
bed like a good little boy and go to
sleep again. The party is not till 4
o'clock, and there Is plenty of time."
The party, which was partly for
Philip's birthday and partly for
Christmas, was to be very small and
of the simplest description, for Mrs.
Palrymple was a widow and very
poor. Indeed, simple as the entertain
ment was to be only tea and a tiny
Christmas tree It is doubtful if sue
would have consented to giving it had
not Martha joined her entreaties to
Philip's and promised to help with all
the preparations. Martha thought
there was no woman in Ixindon to
compare with her mistress, and no
child in the entire universe worthy to
be spoken of In the same breath as
Philip, for whom Indeed she bad an
adoration bordering on idolatry.
Martha entirely managed the little
house In Stoketon Road. She bad
lived with her mistress as maid in the
days before her marriage when she
had known all the luxury that money
can provide. She had accompanied
her, when, in direct opposition to the
plans and wishes of ber worldly wise
mother, she had left home secretly to
marry the poor artist whom she loved,
preferring poverty with him to, riches
with the suitor favored by ber mother
a rich man with nothing but bis
wealth to recommend bim. It was
Martha, too, who comforted the girl
when her mother refused to have any
thing more to do with her, sending
back ber letters unopened and turn
ing a deaf ear to her entreaties for
Perhaps if Violet Mitchell had real
ized bow absolute was the poverty In
which her marriage would plunge her
she might have paused. But she never
believed that her mother would really
carry out the threat of considering ber
daughter dead on the day she changed
her name; and, too, she had unlimited
faith in her husband's talents win
ning him a name and fortune. But
she was mistaken in ber expectations.
Her mother carried out ber threat to
the letter. Iter husband might per
haps have Justified ber faith in him
had not death intervened. He caught
a fever and died two years after their
marriage. The widow with her tiny
baby and the faithful Martha left the
little Italian town where they bad
been liviug, and came to London. A
little bouse in a dreary suburban road
was taken, and here Violet Dalrymple
eked out ber minute Income by giving
music lessons. She bad given up all
hope of her mother's forgiveness.
Philip lay contentedly by his moth
er's side and counted oa bis fingers
the delightful things be bad seen be
"Cakles; cbocky; flags; crackers!"
be murmured delightfully. Then he
stopped suddenly, and a puzzled look
replaced tbe smile on bis face.
"Mother," he said, "why can't I
have a granny to come to my party?"
Mrs. Dalrymple hesitated. How
could she tell this baby of tbe years
of stubborn un forgive ess and hard
ness of heart that bad denied bim a
granny; how explain to bim tbe rea
son for bis granny, though living, be
ing as dead to bim?
What a morning of delight Philip
had on that day of tbe party. He
helped Martha to set the table for tea
in the little dining room, for on this
marvelous day mother and Philsey
must dine In the kitchen. And In tbe
drawing room was the Christmas tree,
wonderful even now before the can
dies were lighted. He helped mother
to stick tbe little labels on each pre,
eu. He filled tbe little muslin bags
with sweets, taking frequent toll while
so doing:; he arranged tbe crackers In
fan'astJc designs of bis own. But oc
casionally In the midst of these de
lightful preparations tbe thought came
to him: "How nice It would be if 1
eouid have a granny at my party to
see all these beauties." Then tbe idea
began to slowly jxsess him that per
haps mother bad made a liitle mis
take, or bad forgotten, and that Fa
ther Christmas did sometimes bring
crannies. That one had not arrived
on Christinas Hay. tbe proper day,
ma tiered little. Since be bad once
lie:;: too Ixisy to bring Pbllsey bim
elf till the day after, might not tbe
genie thing happen again?

Suddenly a resolution seixed
Mother would not mind, he thought,
but perhaps It would be safer not to
ask her. He would go out and buy a
present for the granny In case she
came. He hurried Into the kitchen.
"Martha," he said coaiingly, "I do
so wish Philsey could have a penny."
Martha was extremely busy, and It
did not occur to her to wonder why a
penny was so much desired at this
"There"s a penny on the dresser you
may take, Master Philsey, dear," she
said; "now run away, lovey, I'm very
Philip knew exactly where to go for
the granny's present. He had often
admired a gaily 1 luted bird swing
ing on a little hoop In a toy shop win
dow. Surely a granny would appre
ciate so lovely a thing. He put on
his hat and coat, seized a moment
when Martha was speaking to the
milkman, and ran out. It was the first
time he had ever been out alone, and
tbe feeling of Importance was very
He had wandered Into a more
crowded neighborhood, and several
people looked curiously at the little
boy who, with a small parcel clasped
tightly in his band, ran on and on as
If pursued. At last a woman, feeling
sure he was lost and wanting to help
him, tried to take hold of his hand.
By this time, however, Philip was in
a perfect frenzy of terror, lie broke
from ber kludly hand and darted
across tbe road to escape from her.
The next moment he gave a piercing
scream and lay motionless lu the mid
dle of the road, while a horrified
crowd gathered round bim. A car
riage drawn by a pair of horses, and
going at a great speed, bad knocked
him down. A young man, who was
a doctor, elbowed his way to the front
of the crowd. He fully expected that,
the child was seriously hurt if not
killed, but when he picked him up
Philip opened bis eyes and said:
"Philsey was frightened and ran
very quickly, and the horse knocked
"I will take -him home with mc,"
said the old lady, "and on the way
we will tall at the police station and
give Information; his parents are sure
to apply there as soon as they miss
bim. My horses were within an inch
of killing him, and I cau do no less
than take charge of him now."
"Are you the granny?" he asked
suddenly. And when tbe old lady
asked what he meant, he told her all
about tbe party, and how much be
wanted a granny, and how he had
gone out to buy a present for her in
case Father Christmas brought her
that day. He explained, too. how
Father Christmas hail brought bim
once to be mother's little boy. and
how he bad no duddy. He showed her
the bird he bad bought for the granny.
"Are you the granny to any little
boy?" he asked linally, aud be could
not understand why tears ran down
the old lady's cheeks, and what she
answered, for she spoke in a low whis
per. Just as If she were talking to her
self, and he could only hear a word
here and there. "My folly and wick
edness." "vears of lone! ! Re-.- ' "im
possible to llnd them now," and other
unmeaning phrases. But he felt sure
the old lady was unhappy, for when
mother wa unhappy she often had
tears on her cheeks, so he tried the
same remedy that always cured ber.
"This Is writing mother put in my
pocket for If I got lost," he said, con
fidentially, and held out a card on
which was written "Philip Stewart
Dalrymple, 8 Stoketon Itoad, Clap
ham." When the old lady read this, she
said, "Thank Cod!" and she kissed
Philip again and again, and told blui
that she was big very own granny.
She gave no explanations, nor did
Philip demand them, for never bad be
Imagined that a granny could be so
The old lady told the coachman to
drive as quickly as possible to Htoke
ton Koad, and Just as Mrs. Dalrymple
and Martha bad become aware of tbe
terrible fact that Philip was nowhere
to be found, tbe carriage drew up out
side the shabby little house. Tbe foot
man gave a thundering knock, sud in
another instant Philip was In bis
mot tier's arms.
"Mother, mother, I went to buy the
present for the granny to put on the
tree and the horse knocked me down,
and Father Christmas has sent a
gra'.iny In time for the party."
And lwbiud him was a stalely fig
tire, whose proud face was quivering
with emotion, whose somcwhiit stern
voice was trembling an It said:
"Violet, my child, I have found you
at last. Can you forgive me?"

to be true, Philip thought, but It real
ly was true. He was waabed and

over tbe question whether the iujurej

proud privilege of the better half of

Jefferson and Florence Criticising
Their Own Performance.
One night, some years ago, as I en
tered Dorlou's oyster bouse on West
Tweniy-third street, writes K. 11. Soth
em in Leslie's Monthly, I saw Joseph
Jefferson and W. J. Florence Kitting at
a table near the door. Jefferson was
talking earnestly to Florence, who was
looking very much ashamed of himself,
with eyes cast down aud fiddling with
his oyster fork. Glancing up be saw
me, and, as If glad to escape from a
scolding, be cried, "Come over here and
sit down with us."
"How do you do," said Jefferson.
"Pardon me a moment. I am telling
Billy about a point he (spoiled this even
lug." They were playing "Tbe Rivals"
at the Garden Theater.
"Well, I was thinking of somethiug
else," ssld Florence.
"Ah, that's it," said Jefferson, "but
you missed the point, and let me tell
you that you would have got a round
of applause there" naming gome othei
portion of the scene "if you bad made
the pause in the right place."
"I,ook here," said Florence, suddenly.
losing his remorseful expression, you
killed your own effect by speaking too
quickly on that line," and 1m instanced
one of Bob Acres' best moments.
Jefferson's facu fell. "That's so, Billy,
that's so; I spoiled that line. I wai
thinking bow well I was playing, too
and I forgot my look before I spoke."
Florence became quite cln-erful again
