The lights shine out a long blaze behind us, as we turn for the last look. There will be many miles of cloudy dark ness ahead. We almost want to turn back and clatter with quick hoof-beats on the frosty stones, into those sparkling rows of light that send a glow far into the dark sky.

You can make out the darker shadows of clumps of willows and hear the loud rustling of corn stocks. There is no tramp of slouching foot steps behind when you listen, and the lights dropped here and there, far off, at lonesome intervals, are soft, twinkling beacon lights like htars that lead wander ing feet to no no unkindly haven, no shelter but that of a home. And far away, at the end of the long I'oad. lights are shining; softer, starrier, in the little windows of the Sweedish settlement, lights that will burn all this Christmas night, and shine at morning across lhe road whore the sleighs dance by at four o'clock in the morning to the "YriT service.
