How the Day Was Celebrated
A Season of General Rejoicing.
Christmas day lisa come and gone ,
and wo have another whole year now
in which to look forward to its next
advcn1 , and when told that the day
for the completion of the water
works and sewer system is coming , to
aiy , "So is Christmas f The day was
generally ctlobratcd , and while we
s'Hall endeavor to condensa into our
apsico the list of its festivitier , ue can
giva but the barest details and leave
tie otory of each to be woven to an
interminable hngth by the happy par
The Christmas ceremonies ot St.
Phslomena's cathedral were very in
teresting and imposing. High mats
Christmas morning was celebrated by
the Rev. Father McCarthy. The
main sltar was elegantly trimmed
with evergreens and illuminated with
hundreds of wax tapers. To the loft
of the Virgin's altar was a crib , repre
senting the birth of the
Saviour. Musics were tad ! each
hour until 10:30 : o'clock , when Ponti
fical high mass was celebrated by Rt.
Rev. 'bishop O'Connor , assisted by
Rev. Fathers English , Kelly , Mc
Carthy nnd the Creighton College fa-
ulty. The choir sang Schmidt's grand
mass in C , and the rendition wasgrand
indeed. They have been rehearing
this mass for some little time , and
their efforts were doubly proven not to
have been in vain.
AT Till ! CUUilCU OF TUE HOLT FAMILY.
That littla house on the south
west corner of 17th and Camming
streets , popularly known as the church
of the Holy Family , wore , on Christ
mas morning , a drear and deserted
appearance. The furniture , altarde- ,
orations , in fact everything to denote
that it had once been used aa a place
of worship , were removed , and in
their stead , the chill air of the wintry
day without , hold undisputed sway.
The desertion of furnishings , pastor
and people was occasioned by the com
pletion of the basement of the new
church of the Holy Family
on the corner of 17th and
Izird streets , in which
work , the energies of both pastor and
flock , have fcr some time been bent.
In this basement , therefore , on
Christmas day , and for the first time ,
the religious exercises of the church
were held. The attendance at all the
masses was particularly large , especi
ally at that of 10:30 : o'clock. At that
hour high mass was sung by Father
Quinn. The sermon on the gospel of
the day was delivered by the same
gentleman , and WES a calm , earnest
and practical exposition of the spirit
of "peace on earth to men of good
will" which Christ carao to establish
on earth. The choir sing Stocklin's
mass in B flit , the parts of whi.ih
were rendered by the following ladiis
and gentlemen : Soprano , Mi&a Cerin

CUU CHRISTMAS EVE.
On Fncny evening a few invited
guests , numbering about fcrty , assem-
iled at the Bee Hive photograph
tudlo , en Sixteenth street , to enjoy
Christmas eve with the proprietor ,
NIr. D. S. Mitchell. Our reporter
hid the good fortune to be among the
favored ones , as he has been before
since the inauguration of this studio ,
which has become , within his own
recollection , ono of the permanent and
valued institutions of the city.
The elegant headquarters of
art have been beautified
and added to year by year and they
surely never were so delightfully
pless nt as on this occasion , as sur
rounded by exquisite pictures , lace
and taoestry , elegant walnut and
veneeriaff , the party stood before two
lovely Christmas trees radiant with
rich holiday fruits.
Mr. Mitchell In a few brief words
welcomed his guests moBt hospitably
nd then called upon one of the
number , Mr. Edwin Davis , ttq
trip the trees and give each
; ift to its owner. It has been
ilr. Mitchell's custom for years past
to annually give lus employes a re
minder of his appreciation and regard
n the shape of a present , and on this
occasion the mementos were especial
ly beautiful and appropriate.
P. F. Davenport , who does his re-
Louching , received a handsome solid
old scarf pin in the form of a shield ,
upon the reverse of which were the
words , "From the Bee Hive Studio ,
for faithful services , 1880. " Upon the
'ace was engraved the frame used in
retouching , and pendant from the
sbieli was a miniature camera cf
gold , -with a tiny photograph within
it , visible only by means of a magni-
Jacob Haucklnk , and water color ar
tist , received a piinter's palette of
old embosssd with .the paint colors
and Inscribed as the first. A very
fine 20x24 inch portrait of Master Ed
die Divis , waa presented to Mr. Davis
from the studio. Dr. Soberer received
a fine album. Mrs. May Cannell , a
sister of Mr. Mitchell , received so
many elegant gifts that it Is impossi
ble to enumerate them , but we bavo
a photograph showing them all to
gether , and it looks like a view from
Max Meyer's store. And , by the way ,
that ia where the pins mentioned
above weromanufacturedandthey are
fine specimens of the jewelers art.
After the trees had been stripped a
fine collation was spread for the guesta
and the remainder of the evening wno
spent In social enjoyments which

employed until very recently In a
