Is "never much light at 7 o'clock
on a December morning , and the
thick curtains shut out any faint
streaks of dawn that might have been
outside. But neither light nor dark
ness mattered to one of the occupants
of the room. lie sat up in bed ; for
one moment he rubbed his fingers in
his sleepy eyes to make sure he was
quife awake , and 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. "
"Philip , " she said , "it is not time
to get up yet. Go 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.
Dairy mple was a widow and very
poor. Indeed , simp'le as the entertain
ment was to be only tea and a tiny
Christmas tree it is doubtful if she
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 London 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 had an
adoration bordering on idolatry.
Martha entirely managed the little
house in Stoketon Road. She had
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 her 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 her mother
a rich man with nothing but his
wealth to recommend him. It was
Martha , too , who comforted the girl
when her mother refused to have any
thing more to do with her , sending
back her letters unopened and turn
ing a deaf ear to her entreaties for
Perhaps if Violet Mitchell had real
ized how 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 her
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 her expectations.
Her mother carried out her threat to
the lotter. Her husband might perhaps -
haps have justified her faith in htej
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 had
been living , and came to London. A
little house in a dreary suburban road
was taken , and here Violet Dalrymple
eked out her minute income by giving a
music lessons. She had given up all P
hope of her mother's forgiveness. S
Philip lay contentedly by his moth he
er's side and counted on his fingers hP
the delightful things he had seen be P
ing prepared. u
"Cakies ; chocky ; flags ; crackers ! " tlm
he murmured delightfully. Then he m
stopped suddenly , and a puzzled look t
replaced the smile on his face. si
"Mother , " he said , "why can't I
have a granny to come to my party ? " p
Mrs. Dalrymple hesitated. How 111w
could she tell this baby of the years 111D
of stubborn unforgiveness and hard D
ness of heart that had denied him a hi
granny ; how explain to him the rea
son for his granny , though living , be saP
ing as dead to him ? P
What a morning of delight Philip tlS
had on that day of the party. He S
helped Martha to set the table for tea P
in the little dining room , for on this in
marvelous day mother and Philsey b
must dine in the kitchen. And in the
drawing the Christmas di
room was tree ,
wonderful even now before the can to
dles were lighted. He helped mother ai
to stick the little labels on each pros- te
.en. He filled the little muslin bags to
with sweets , taking frequent toll while sim
so doing : ; he arranged the crackers in m
fantastic designs of bis own. But oc aim
casionally in the midst of these de m
lightful preparations the thought came
to him"How nice It would be if 1 pi
could have a granny tt my party to tr
see all these beauties. " Then the idea ai
began to slowly possess him that per gi
haps mother had , made a little mis giui
take , or had forgotten , and that Father ui
ther Christmas did sometimes bring w
grannies. That one had not arrived V (
on Christmas Day , the proper day ,
mattered little. Since he had once at
been too busy to bring Philsey him
self till the day after , might not the to
same tiling happen again ? ly
"Mother , " he said in a hushed voice. di
"Do you think Father Christmas si
meant to bring me a granny for in
Christmas , like he brought me to be se
your little Philsey , and he was very w
busy like then , and had to wait till je
the next day ? Because If he brings jeof
there is no off
the granny to-day present
ent for her on the tree. " Pi
Suddenly a resolution seized him.
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 coaxingly , "I dose
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
particular moment.
"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 painted 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
the 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 hand , 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. He broke |
from her kindly hand and darted
across the road to 'escape from her.
The next moment he gave a piercing
scream and lay motionless in the mid
dle of the road , while a horrified
crowd gathered round him. A car
riage drawn by a pair of horses , and
going at a great speed , had knocked
him down. A young man , who was
1c 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 his eyes and said :
"Philsey was frightened and ran
very quickly , and the horse knocked
him down. "
is "I will take him home with me , "
said the old la'dy , "and on the way
we will call at the police station and
give information ; his parents are sure
fcL fct apply there as soon as they missl
him. My horses were within an inch
of killing him , and I can 'do no less
than take charge of him now. "
"Are you the granny ? " he asked
suddenly. And when the old lady
asked what he meant , he told her all
about the party ) and how much he
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 had brought him
once to be mother's little boy , and
how he had no daddy. He showed her
the bird he had bought for the granny.
tlb "Are you the granny to any little
boy ? " he asked finally , and he 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 wickedness -
edness < , " "years of loneliness , " "im
possible < to find them now , " and other
unmeaning phrases. But he felt sure
the old lady was unhappy , for when
mother was unhappy she often had
tears on her cheeks , so he tried the
same remedy that always cured her.
"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 Road , Clap-
ham. "
When the old lady read this , she
said , "Thank God ! " and she kissed
Philip again and again , and told him
that she was his very own granny.
She ] gave no explanations , nor did
Philip "demand them , for never had he
imagined , that a granny could be so
beautiful. (
The old lady told the coachman to
drive as quidkly as possible to Stoke- ;
ton Iload , and just as Mrs. Dalrymple
and Martha had become aware of the
terrible fact that Philip was nowhere
be found , the carriage drew up out
side the shabby little house. The foot
man gave a thundering knock , and in
another instant Philip was in his
mother'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
graany in time for the party. " *
And behind him was a stately figure - '
ure , whose proud face was quivering
with emotion , whose somawhat stern
voice was trembling as it said :
" Violet , my child , I have found you
last. Can you forgive me ? "
Things were almost too wonderful
be true , Philip thought , but it real
was true. He was washed and of
dressed in time for the party , and
such a party never had been known
that street before. Mrs. Mitchell
sent the carriage back to her house
with a note to the housekeeper , and .
jellies , and toys of every description.
And when the presents were taken
the tree and distributed , who so
proud as Pfclllp ? for his very pwnjr | <
beautiful granny drew him to her and
kissed him and said :
' I shall always love the bird. Phi !
sey , darling , because If you had not
gone out to buy it , i might never have
found my little grandson. "
But Philip knew it was all through

Jefferson and Florence Criticising
Their Own Performance.
One night , some years ago , as I en
tered Dorlon's oyster house on Wes
Twenty-third street , writes E. H. Seth <

Jefferson and W. J. Florence sitting a
a table near the door. Jefferson'wa
talking earnestly to Florence , who wa
looking very much ashamed of himself ,
with eyes cast down and fiddling witii
his oyster fork. Glancing up he saw
me , and , as if glad to escape from
scolding , he 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-
ing. " They were playing "The Rivals'
at the Garden Theater.
"Well , I was thinking of something
else , " said Florence.
"Ah , that's it , " said Jefferson , "bu
you 'missed the point , and let me tel
you that you would have got a round ,
of applause there" naming some other
portion of the scene "if you had made
the pause in the right place. "
"Look here , " said Florence , suddenly
osing his remorseful expression , "you
dlled your own effect by speaking too df
quickly on that line , " and he instanced
one of Bob Acres' best moments.
Jefferson's face fell. "That's
so , Billy , ta
that's so ; I spoiled that line. I wa ?
thinking how well I was playing , too ce
and I forgot my look before I spoke. " be

Stole from Fisherman , but Was Caught
Andy Fitzgerald , a fisherman of this
"icinity , says the Del Mar correspond
ent of the Cincinnati Enquirer , had a
unique experience and made some , easy
money whiUj fishing off the banks
about five mU * 3 from this place one
day this week. He anchored at the
banks and was fishing for sanddabs
with a hand line , when he noticed a
large seal hovering about the spot
where his line lay. By and by he
pulled up with a 'sanddab ' on his hook
and began to haul in the line , but be
fore he could land the fish the seal had
grabbed it and eaten it. Two or three
limes the seal thus forestalled him , and
then Fitzgerald put out a line on the
other side of the boat , leaving the other
line out for the entertainment of the
seal. While the animal was watching
that line Fitzgerald took in about a
dozen fish with the other , and was con
gratulating himself upon outwitting
the animal , when he heard a noise be
hind him , and , turning , beheld the seal
In the boat in the act of devouring the
lish he had so recently caught.
When the seal had finished his meal
he crawled up the little deck over an
apartment in the prow t of the boat ,
and , stretching' himself at full length
in the sun , 'proceeded to take a nap.
When he had become oblivious of his
surroundings Fitzgerald crept forward
with a rope in which he had prepared a
slipping noose , and , sliding it over the
seal until it was back of the flippers , h6
drew it taut , and then with a sudden
lurch pulled * the surprised prisoner ta

shut down the hatch.

Not Always the Most Attractive.
While it is true that the accomplish
ed young woman undoubtedly gets a
good deal out of life which her less
embellished sister misses , that fact
does not by any means prove that the
fluent linguist , Ideal waltzer , excellent
musician and artist , fearless horse
woman or expert golfer inevitably
proves more attractive than the girl
who has no special accomplishments.
It has been observed that the worst
of an accomplished girl Is the Involun
tary note of assertiveness which so
frequently creeps into her sayings and
arguings. No doubt it is difficult for
her to avoid this when she feels the
capability to skillfully discuss many
subjects which her women friends per
force remain silent owing to entire
lack of even slight technical knowl
edge. She should remember that
though shejnay know and be able to
do a good deal more than many , there
are another "many" who know and
can do a very great deal more than
she !
The girl whose attainments are aver
age , or even a little below It , frequent
ly possesses provided that she be
blessed with tact the very valuable
power of making a man feel inordi
nately pleased with himself. She lis
tens admiringly without desiring to
Interrupt ; she agrees easily , not hav
ing the knowledge to differ ; she ac-
cepts all that is told her , responds
sympathetically and questions deferen
tially , because she realizes the intel
lectual merits of her companion , as i
contrasted with her own , to be worthy
of such flattering treatment
Such is not always the case with the
super-accomplished girl whose grip of
many matters makes It Impossible for
her to adopt an unquestioning Desde-
mona-like attitude of admiring creduli
ty ; she has been educated to have opin
ions , and her accomplishments confer
the right to very definitely express
them , thus giving her companion the
uncomfortable feeling that unless he
wants'to be caught tripping over some
artistic1 simile or criticism he had best
be silent and this attitude is not one
which entirely appeals to a masculine
enthusiast i

something to do with her liking for
