I CHRISTMAS MEMORIES
Time was , with most of us , when
Christmas day encircling all our limited -
ited world 1I1to a magic ring , left nothing -
ing out for us to miss or seelt ; bound
together all our home enjoyments , affections -
fections , and hopes ; grouped ever-
thing and every one around the Christmas -
mas fire ; and made the mtle picture
shining in our bright young eyes , com-
Time came , perhaps , all so soon !
when our thoughts overleaped that
. narrow boundary ; when there was
' some one ( very dear , we thought then ,
r' "ery beautiful , and absolutely perfect )
" wanting to the fullness of our happi.
ness ; when we were wanting too ( or
l ' . . we thought so , which did just as well ) ,
at the Christmas hearth by which that
some one sat ; and when we intertwin-
ed with ever- wreath and garland of
our life that some one's name.
t That was the time for the bright
, visionary Christmases which have
long arl en from us to show
r . r faintly , after summer rain ,
: in the palest edges of the
rainbow ! That was the
time for the heatIfied enjoyment -
ment of the things that were
to be , and never were. and
'ot the things that were so
Teal in our resolute hope that
it would be hard to say , now ,
what realltios achicv d since ,
have been stronger !
What ! Did that Christmas -
mas never really come when
we and the priceless pearl
, vho was our ) 'O\\llg choice
were recelvod , after the happiest -
piest of totally hnpossibie
" " .1arrlages , by the two united
. .am Ul os provlously at dag-

When brothers and slstors-
] in.law who had alwa's been
rather cooi to us before our
" relationship was effected ,

- when fathers and mothers
. overwhelmed us with unllm.

_ to care for that S:11110 : priceless
pearl , and married for money , and be-
I como usurious ? Above ( \11 , do wo
reall ) ' lmow , now , that wo should probably -
ably have been mlsorabie if wo 'hali
won and worn the pearl , and that we
are bettor without her ?
That Christmas when we had recently -
cently achieved so much fame ; when
wo had been carried in tl'lumph Rome-
where , for doing some ling great anti
good ; when wo had won an honored
and ennobled name , and arrived and
were rccolved at homo in a Rhower of
tears of joy ; is it posslblo that that
Christmas has not como ) 'et ?

11 ' t so it seems to ho ,

conclusion , that llfe is llttle better
than 11. dream , and lltUo worth the
loves and strlvings that wo crowd
into it ? ,
No ! Far bo such miscalled phllos-
ophy from UR , dear reader , on Christmas -

hearts bo the Christmas spirit , which
is the spirit of active usefuiness , per-
severancos , cheerful dlschargo oC duty.
Idndnoss , and forbearance ! It is in
the Jast virtues ospeclally , that we
are , or should bo , strengthened by the
unaccompllshed visions of our ) "outh ;
for , who shall say that they are not
our teachers to deal gently oven with
the Impalpable nothings of the earth !
Therefore , as wo grow older , let us
bo maI'o thanltful that the clrclo of our
Christmas associations and of the lessons -
