THE OTHER EXTREME.
"Dear me' " Bald Santa Glaus as he
Came down the chimney fleet ,
"Pro heard of cools heaped on the head.
But these are on my feet. "
HER MERRY CHRISTMAS.
She wandered down Rivington street
crying softly. She was hungry , and it
seemed more pitiful for her to bo hungry
on Christmas eve than it was for the
dozens of other children on Rivington
street to be hungry. The year before she
hadnot only not been hungry , but she had
had a Christmas tree. The other children
had always been more or less hungry
and they had never had a Christmas tree.
She shuffled her partly bare feet along
on the icy sidewalk. Snow had frozen
on what was left of the uppers of her
shoes. Her feet were very cold , but she
did not mind the cold , so much as she
did the hunger , nor the hunger so much
as the loneliness the absence of the
Christmas tree and the daddy and mam
to. jump her up and down and watch the
sparkle in-her eyes as she saw their poor
little presents. They had not been a
very interesting daddy and mam to other
people daddy had been a hod carrier
and mam used to take in washing. But
they had been all she had everything !
A comfortably dressed stout woman
stopped her. The woman was probably
a shopkeeper's wife , and had a heart
more or less kind. She had intended to
give the girl something to eat and per
haps some money ; but she asked her if
she was a good girl and gave her some
advice first of all. This made the girl
angry , and she answered her saucily.
The comfortable woman turned away
with a comfortable expression of horror
on her face , and turned back into her
comfortable doorway. The girl passed
on , lonelier , hungrier , colder than be
Midnight came. She had lost con
sciousness of details her loneliness , her
hunger , her shivering had ceased to im
press her. She knew only that she was
miserable. But still she walked.
At 3 o'clock on Christmas morning she
had to stop walking , however. She was
on a deserted East river dock , and she
laid down where an eddy of wind had
left a soft bed of snow left it for her
perhaps ; and the wind gave its gift
without giving any advice first.
Her eyes closed. Her shivers ceased.
3he lay very still. She was asleep. She
lid not move again until a red ray from
the crisp winter sunrise touched her
Then she sat up and gazed solemnly
it the sunrise for a moment. Slowly her
jxpression became a happy one. She
really looked almost like a pretty child.
She raised her arms and held them out
: oward the glow. Her lips moved.
"Daddy ! mam ! " she said.
Then she drormed back into the bed
given by the wind.
The girl had a merry Christmas af te ]

Hangs around the

Docsnt seem to want to play.

Begging notes to SatiU. Claiw ;

Christmas day is here at last
All our troubles now are fast.
Santa. Clans came down last night ,
Spreading round him fresh delight.
With a twinkle In his eye ,
"There , " said he , "sleep on , young/ry.
No more by the thought beset
As to what you're going to get. "
Up the chimney quick he goes ,
Softly rubs lib ruddy nose ;
Yet rncthlnks I hear him sigh
As he nods a last good-by ,
And methinks I hear him say
Ere he vanishes awny ,
Say with just the least regret -
"Wonder what I'm going to get ! "
A CHRISTMAS EVE IN IRELAND.
Christmas eve in the mountains of
Ballycolman , in the County Cork , Ire
land. A blazing turf fire on the hearth
stone. In the chimney corner sat Daniel
Donovan , 70 years old , who could talk
nothing hnt Gaelic. He was twisting : i
little wooden wheel which connected by
a passage under the hearthstone with
the middle of the fire , which flickered
and flared as the current of air swept
through. Next to the old man sat
Biddy , aged 20 , with her hair brushed
smoothly back from her forehead and
tied in a Roman knot at the back of her
head. Close to Biddy sat Mary , who had
never teen a black man or a Cliinaman.
Sandwiched between Mrs. Donovan
and Mary sat the American visitor. The
aid woman was smoking and crooning ,
and a little grandchild with cheeks like
ripe peaches stood with her golden head
resting on her grandmother's knee.
The firelight danced and gleamed over
the little group as the December wind
lame down the wide mouthed 'chimney.
Ihe scene was so suggestive of peace
md rest that for fifteen minutes no one
moke. Then Mrs. Donovan said :
"And mebbe the Yankee gintleman ' 11
sing us a song ? "
He would indeed have been an un
grateful fellow who should refuse such
a request under circumstances at once
so homely and so hospitable. And in
that grateful atmosphere he felt some of
the old time sweetness come into his
voice as he smg ; of the harp that once
the soul of music shed in Tarsi's halls ,
and told in soug the story of how two
eyes of Irish blue looked up at Pat Mal-
loy. And as he sang si look of rapt won
der and admiration came into the face of
his homely listeners. He forgot that his
audience was si few Irish peassmts , and
standing upright Se clsisped the buck of
his chair sind poured out into the lowly
thatched cottsige that wonderful arisi by
Moligue , "Pour Out Thy Heart Before
the Lord. " He had sung it Ixjfore in a
massive cathedral accompanied by a
great organ , and had heard the tones of
his voice go ringing down the echoing
nave , but never had he felt the sweet
ness and beauty of it as on thsit Christ
mas eve in the lowly little cabin in the
mountains. And when he had finished
the aria and resumed his seat , Mrs. Donovan
van suggested :
"Mebbe the gintleman will sing us a
song about home ! "
Almost before he knew it the visitor
had begun , "Do They Miss Me at Home ? "
He reached the third line , "To know at
this moment some loved one were say
ing , 'I wish he were here , ' " when he be
gan to choke. The memory of his own
home in far oft America came to him.
What was the baby doing ? Did the
children have the usual Christmas
tree ? Was everybody in good health ?
Was any one wishing for the absent
one ? And before the lines were out of
his mouth he went all to pieces like a
ship on the rocks. He was a strong
man who prided himself on his cynicism
and materialism. He could not remem
ber the time when his eyes had been wet
before. But sitting there upon a chair
with a seat made of straw rope , and sur
rounded by as simple and ingenuous people
ple as the sun ever shone upon , he placed
his hands over his face , and the tears
ran through his fingers and fell upon the
hearthstone. An awestruck silence fell
upon the little group , broken by the
moaning of the wind in the chimney.
Mrs. Donovan , her face shining with
sympathy , gently tapped the stranger
on the shoulder and whispered in his
"If ye were to take a cup o' the Congo
[ tea ] ye'd feel betther , sir ! "
He took the "Congo1 and felt better.
Then he went outside , and looking up at
the stars wondered why it was necessary
for him to go 3,000 miles away from
home in order to make a fool of himself.

is tough work in stormy weather , and the _ switch
man cannot be too well protected if he wishes to
preserve his health. Every railroad man's life is
tall of hardship and exposure. The only garment
that will fully protect the man whose business calls
him out in stormy weather is the " Fish Brand
Slicker. " They are light , but strong as iron , hand
made throughout , and good for years of service. '
They are worth ten times their cost , and will save
yon many a sickness. No other article of clothing
mill stand the wear and tear. Rubber is frail , will
rip , tear , and let in the wet. Therefore get the
right sort of coat. The "Fish Brand Slicker "is
the only one for your purpose. Beware of worth
lets imitations , every garment stamped with th =
"Fish Brand" Trade Mark. Don't accept any
inferior coat when you can have the "Fnh Brand
Slicker" delivered without extra cost. Particulars
