A CHRISTMAS STORY.
Oh , joy it snows ! " orlcd the rich
man's plump llttlo girls , popping out
of downy boda on the mornlcg o
OhriitmM ere , while a handmaiden
stood by to dock thtru in purple and
ormiuo. The rich mun'a house stood
like n winter palace behind magnificent
hemlocks , heavy with icicles , and the
inorry twitter of well fed sparrows on
the polished tnarblo court-yard , made
0110 think of building time in spring.
"Oh , goody , goody , itsnowel What
larks we'll hare to-day coasting and
snowballing the rnilkinonl" ncronmod
A flock of boys who daihod around the
corner , all in comforters nnd jolly blp
tuitions , glad that Christmas eve had
had the groo to fall on Saturday.
" 11.8110 * * . , " said the postman , blowing -
ing on his purple ungon , nnd dread *
ing to think of his dreary ronnds , Ho
had some dainty little parcels in his
bat ; which were certain to make him
welcome somewhere ; but , alas , ho had
nlaonfim black-bordered letters to
deliver which would sadden the al
ready aching hearts dreading to hear
his ring at the door. How sirango It
is that grief should come to viait grief ,
and happiftoas to joy ! The dainty
parcels were for tboto who needed
nothing on this glorious Christmas
eve , while the mourning cnvnlopos
wore for the poor who already had too
much black around them ,
"It snows ; it snows , " said the mer
chant , rubbing his hands gleefully , as
ho saw the coal black horses dashing
down the street jingling their silver
harness , while the smoke of their nos
trils congoalcd in a llttlo filmy cloud
like a mofllor on their shaggy necks.
"Trade will bo brisk
to-day ! This
will bo an ideal Christmas , sure
enough ; people always buy plentifully
when the snow falls. "
"It snows , " said the farmer , jogging
to town behind a fat grey horao with
a monstrous load of turkeys and goose ,
whoso pleasant voices bad all through
the happy autumn days hailed hia ad
vent into the barn-yard clamorously.
How could they torosoo this cruel
tlmo , when cold and starks , "browny"
and "whity" and "speckle , " lay with
glased eyca upturned to the thick groy
"I can stand out for my own price
in such weather as this , " aald Farmer
Jacks , with a satisfied smllo , "and I
reckon mother's mince moat will geoff
off ollck enough , too. Git up , Jerry !
You're a tarnal sight lazler'n you waa
in flytlmo. I shan't git to town till
the market is glutted with fowls , like
as not. I'd oughter started at four
Away wont Jerry at o shambling
trot down the hill , past dozing farm
houses and snowy hay-ricks , under
the shelter of which a few forlorn tur
keys sat looking with tearful e ca after
Farmer Jacks and their murdered
"It unows , " said the widow , aa she
sat by the barren hearth , wherein lay
smouldering the embers from her last
Gro. The wind , which whistled so
merrily through tops of the naked
maples , blow bleak and chill through
the crovlces in her hovel ; the door
rattled on its hings and the windows
trembled at every gust. The wan
light which passed through an open
ing cloud fell on an empty cupboard
end shone plaintively on the meagre-
ness around. "It snows like all pos-
seat , " said the big policeman , pausing
at a windy corner , where instantly the
heavy flakes settled on bis bulgy col
lar and giant arms , until he looked
like a funny soaro crow with a very
rod nose. "There hain't been such a
deep snow for ten years or more at
Christmas tlmo. Thls'll bo a tough
night for old Mother Casey and a
few of her kind. I hope I shan't
moot any of 'em ; they puts mo clear
out of all patlouco with the blessed
yarn about their eon in tbo hospital ,
and no light or broad in the houso.
It's the moral truth that them jolly
thinks a pollconmnVpay ought to go
their corner grocery. I'm bloat if they
don't. I reckon I'll have to step around
atnsntr 'om though to-night and leave
a few things. I couldn't sloop last
night for thinking of 'om. Lord ,
Lord , If the rich people what'a down
yonder this mlnlt a buying big cakoa
and diamond necklaces could just take
a nice little walk with mo to-night to
wards the river , I don't think they'd
have the heart to shut themselves np
in their carriages and roll away to
their grand unppors and their flowery
boodwolrs without laying out a little
money for the poor. They'll bo to
church on Sunday and Christmas
morning at that , and will look that
sanctified as you would think they was
ready for heaven afore they died , and
all the time the church bolls are ring
ing in the very cara of poor dying
tinner * , actually perishing for vittals
and drink , It's a queer onovon world ,
this hero Is It gets worse every
Christmas , More diamonds np town
and sealskins , and moro hunger and
dlpthery down town. "
"What are yon standing here get
ting frostbites and lecturing mo for ? "
said the street lamp , flaring np In a
spurt of yellow flame , which gave his
ono eye a sinister expression , "I
ain't got anything to do with how the
world goes on ; why don't you hire a
hall and toll them all about it , and
much good it would do and many
thanks you'd got from all classes ?
Don't they want to cut down police
men's wages and charge you for
every day you're nick ? You go and
harangue corporation's ofDcurs and lot
me go to aleop. I've half a notion to
go ont and have the city down on the
gas company. A great howl about
bad gas. and water in the motor that
would bo funl"v
'I know what I'll do , " growled a
surly voioo at the policeman's feet
which raado him jump , at which two
ugly demons shrieked with laughter
"What right have they to have a fire
plug so expoHod to the weather I'll
just freeze up , and there's sure to bo a
tire in the next block before morning ,
and the wind is rising ; then you'll see
dancing , I like a bit of excitement ,
myself , it's as a country churchyard
here except when Kolfey beats his
wife , or Mrs. Carter's baby cries from
sheer hunger * , Why don't you go into
Madigan'a grocery , officer , and warm
your toes ? You might take a hand at
the radio , and if yon win the turkey
go and put It that Carter baby's stock'
ing , if it owns anoh a thing. I saw a
good natured man offer a car-driver a
drink of brandy awhile ago , and he re
futed it point blank , bcoaosinBho
thought the man was a spotter , l\ot
devil , ho hadn't soon fire alnco lie
crawled ont of his bed at 3 this morn
ing , but ho dasiontgo to the Gro , SB it
would only make It worse for him ,
and the bitter cold harder to boar. I
know my taato la open to criticism ,
but I'd rather bo a Gro-plng or a street
lamp than a car-driver in this weather ,
And as for the horses , poor dumb
things , it makes my heart ache to
think of thorn. "
"Well ; you'vo got nerve , I think ! A
fire-plug talking about hla hoavt , " said
the lamp post , spattering frightfully
in a fresh gust of wind , "It was only
yesterday you got ont of order nnd
wouldn't work at all and poor old
Aunty Simon * ' llttlo bakery burned
up entirely , and no insurance , "
"Tho sassy thing ! and you wont out
last week and loft us all in utter
darkness and Ahnt poor young letter
carrier was robbed and boat over the
head with n sand bag , and loft for
dead on this very spot. "
"Good graolcua ! " said the policeman -
man , jumping away briskly , "If I
stay here much longer I'll ' hoar some
other horrid tile. I RUOBS I'll try my
luck at the r fflo. I'll bet n dollar
Jimmy Monahan'a in there , and hia
boat is further off than mine , "
"Well , It snows , " aaid the cash boy ,
half crying with fear and cold. "It
ain't no USD looking for that dollar
bill now ; the snow has covered it "up.
I guess they'll dieohargo mo and keep
my week's wages , too. Oh , I don't
see how I could a * lost it "
"What'a the matter , my poor
childl'1 asked a kind hearted girl go
ing to a great homo with a bundle
a most beautiful white satin dross ,
embroidered In pansies and moss rose
buds for A fair young debutante to
wear at her first ball.
"Lost a dollar ! Don't cry ; that's
a small matter ; of course , It's not to
yon , though ; wait nntll I run Into
Miss Wooltou'a with this party dross.
I'll give yon a dollar. I made it all
myaolf , and mother and I arc going to
buy our winter's coal and a Christmas
turkey with the money. I did It
cheaply , too ; but the bill Is high , I
fear ; at least they always pretend BO ;
but I can spare ono dollar ont of forty-
The boy dried hla toara aud took up
hia Christmas dream of three dollars
and what ho could buy with it , whist
ling nntll the girl came down the walk
"I can't help you any ; they said I
waa late and the work looked horrid ,
and that they should not pay mo now
until after Now Year , bocauao I waa
not there at 4 o'clock. It ia only a
trick to keep mo ont of it. What
shall I do ? Wo have depended on
this for two weeks , and I have worked
night and day , scarcely stopping to
oat or Bleep. "
Into the curtained recess of an arch
way two waltzers atrayod , panting for
breath , their happy hearts boating
high to the pnlao cf the music , while
the perfume of dying roses pervaded
"How Miss Wool-
lovely yon are , -
ton. What a beautiful dross. Pressed
flowers , are they not , or painted , per
haps ? "
"No. It la embroidery imported
from Naples ; the poor nuns in the
convent there do such work beauti
fully , but at fabulona prices. "
And the great , good God alia in the
high heavens and sees and hears It all.
On , waltzer , in the mad'nlng crowd ,
While lound the timbrel and the fife.
Seo'at thou the grave , the worm , theihroud ?
I pray thee live another life.
"It snows fast now , " aaid the burly
landlord , drawing on-his mlttona and
turning up hla velvet collar , as the
snow drifted into every nook and cor
ner , and likes nothing better than to
got down the shirt collars of fat land
lords. "It snows , and all my tenants
will be whining horribly about the
high rent and no work , but that is
nothing to mo , out they go , every
blessed mother's son of them ; before
the new year if they can't pay. Do
they take my houses for charity insti
tutions , I should like to know ? I'vo
made money ; nobody over gives it tome
mo , and I'm going to keep It , that's
moro. I'm too lenient , that's what 1
am. I'll just atop and got mo a Tom
and Jerry , It's bound to bo an awful
night ; I'm nearly frozen In this ulster ,
lined with a blanket , and sealskin
gloves , 1 wonder the carmen don t
die ; but , pshaw ! they get used to it. "
Ah , landlord , BO they do , and they
got used to lying in paupers' graves ,
where corporations and fat landlords
have driven thorn. Think of thla aa
you ait toasting your feet to blazing
fires Christmas eve , when the angola
are chanting in the skies oi.d the
chimes are ringing in the church.
Think of the April grata that shall
spring and grow on the gravea of bard
pressed creatures driven by atony
hearts into the eternal peace and free
rent of the church yard. If you do
not think of-them now yon will when
you lie , remembering all the ulna you
have committed , in that hour whou all
your millions could not purchase ono
poor llttlo moment of time ; and all the
selfish past rolls away like a fitful
scroll , and the inaccessfblo wall of the
yet to bo rises before you.
"It BIIOWB very fast , dear , " aaid
llttlo Jnuey'u mother , tying an old
shawl about her oars aud giving her a
kisa on the red lips. "Run faat with
your baakot and when you've given it

mamma ? " naked Janoy , with the light
of expectancy in her dark oyoa.
"I don't know , my darling ; I am
afraid not ; Santa Olaua never comeu

"But Sapta Olaua told you to send
this backet to MM. Holland , the
wuahor woman , and she's awful poor. "
"Thoro , run along , ( ' .our , it is get
ting so dark. "
"Oh , I wonder If Charley got any
work to-day ; ho had auoh high hopes ,
na thp chopii needed extra hands , but
ho la BO weak from hia long illncaa ,
perhaps they would not take him. I
have divided my last cruut with that

The door burst open aud Janoy'a

a haggard look of misery in hla paleface

Janoy ran aa fast as her fat llttlo
logs could carry her to the poor
woman , and then the glare of the
ihopa caught her oyo. The oloctrlo
light way down the street shone out
like a moon , and it gave the snowy
streets a sort of unearthly beauty , A
llttlo way aho ventured , and then aa
ho drow-nlgh the plate-glass windows
aho wandered on and on until slip no
longer thought of homo , and the aol-
omn quiet there , but of great , tall
Ohriatmaa plno trees , and frosted
cakes and dolls as big aa herself , and
play-houses a d toy furniture. She
waa only a llttlo girl , yon see , and she
hoped to moot Santa Olaua. She saw
n fat old gentleman squeezing in to
look at the silver plato in n jowolor'a
window , and aho drew nnaror. Oh ,
what a jolly rod face ho had , and rod
mittona and snow-whito hair. Per *
haps that waa the very old gentleman.
3ho grow bolder and pushed her tiny
hand into hia , looking up into his face
"Please , sir , ain't you Santa Olaua ?
Won't you buy mo something ! "
"Well , if I over ; hero's a pretty
itato of things ; every young brat in
kho street bogging for trash and frip
peries. No , I'm not Santa Glaus ,
Miss , and who are you , pray ? "
"I'm Janey , and I'll go homo now , "
laid the brown-eyed baby , whimper
"I thought you was him , and I ain't
had no doll for over BO long , nor no
oako nor anything. "
"A how-do-do when

Dome In , Janey whatovor-yonr-namo-
a , and pick ont your doll and what
ever jim-cracko you want ; something
for your ma , too , and we'll got a
wagon and take thorn homo. "
"Ob , what a darling old man ! Can
[ kiaa yon juat once ? " Baked Janey ,
gravely holding np her llttlo brown
faco. "Mamma aaid I musn't klia
fontlomon , but you ain't a gentleman ,
are you ? "
"No , I'm a brute an old wretch ,
my darling : that's the plain truth. I
may have aoiuowhoro n llttlo grand
child like you , but I , don't deserve to
have her , and nobody has wanted to
kiss mo for a great many yoara. "
"I think you are nice , " aald Janoy ,
lolding ono fat finger In her chubby
! iand. "Don't anybody love you ? "
"No , I guess not , Janoy. "
"Then I will , and mamma will ,
; oo. "
Uy this tlmo the bundles had grown
so that the big , old gentleman called a
carriage and put them in , although
Janoy'a wax doll could hardly bo per-
auaded to lie down on the front seat ;
oven then her blue kid slippers stuck
igainst the window and the panlors of
lior dross wore frightfully cruahod.
There wore just plloa of pretty things ,
[ ura and cloaka and ahooa , warm
droasoa and turkoya , oranges and lota
of good thlnga ; in fact , everything
ono could want on a Ohrlatmas ovo.
"Wo mna'n't ride , " said Janey ,
stoutly holding on the fat finger , "I'll
loao ray way if I do. I never rode
home from nowhere in my life. Lota
ua walk and lot dolly and the turkey
ride. Goodnoaa mo , I hope aho won't
grease her ball dress. "
"If she does , we'll got a now ono , "
said the gay old man , trotting ulonj ;
with Janoy through a poorer quarter
of the city than ho know. Tbo snow
still fell steadily and piled up on atone
torracea , fences , barberry buahoa and
hung in beautiful wreatha from thu
trooa , that atood whispering together
about Janey , who looked like a llttlo
live snow ball with logs to it , holding
on to a llvo Santa Clans , in a long ,
groy overcoat and fur tlpput ,
By and by they trudged up a long ,
whlto hill , the wind talking to thorn
aa they wunt , but no ooho told of
their footprints in the deep snow ,
Janoy kept blinking her brown eyes
every moment , beoau/o you BOO the
tiny snowllakos crept in and felt so
queor. Now aoinu big lull thinga
utuck up through the auow and Janoy
know them they uro her lilac buahes
-chanped , though. Now uho flaw a
faint light In a window , and a woo
little thread nf amoko stealing out of
the ohimnoy to sail away ever the
great city and hoar all the necrots.
There waa no sound of baby volcoa or
laughter in this house only u woman'u
aoba now and then.
"That's mamma aho thiuka that I
am lost , " anid the contrite Janey , hug
ging a Christiana cake to her breast.
Now thu aliok grey horses , looking
like ghosts , had pulled the dolly and
turkey and othur thinga up the hill
and they were stopped with a loud
whoa ! at the lilac buahea.
The door flew ooeu wldo and uome-
body grabbed Janny up and smashed
the handsome Ohriatmaa oako into
llttlo bita. "Oh , you broke It ! Here'e
Santa Olaua , mamma. I brung him
with mo and now you can have every
thing you want. "

"Yoa , Olnra , my darling daughter ,
do not lot ua apeak of the fooltah ea-
trangomont. Thin little angel haa
bridged the old gulf. She found mo
wandering through the streets to
night , wondering what I ahould do
with myself. It waa I who waa loat ,
not oho. I felt the need of you nnd
llttlo children moro than ever In my
life. My heart waa jnat breaking tor
some ono to lavish carcases and gifts
upon when aho poked her llttlo hand
in mlno. She Is juat what you wore
at her ago , only aho la bolder and
trongor. And now you aud Charles
got on your things ; you are going
back homo. The gaunt old houao la
warmed andiUghtod , waiting for id
Christmas glfW ; como. This shall bo
a happy timo. "
After Janoy had examined the
gorgeous silk hangings , the velvet
sofaa and gloaming marbles , aho fell
aoloop in a great high bed , with her
dolly pressed to her bosom , mixing
her prayers with the "dingle dong ,
dingle dong" of the Christmas bolla
away np in the sky , where the frost
people live , and ailently they toaaud
down their whlto anowflakoa , which
fell on Janoy'a lilac bushes and cov
ered them all ovor. Never mind , she
did not need them any more. God
had remembered her , as Ho doca all
Hia little children at Chrlatmu.

THE BAD CARPENTER.
Be Loved too Unwisely and Now late '
to bo Bent to the Penitentiary.
The trial of Harry Carpenter , the
bigamist , came to an end yesterday
noon in the district court. The wit
ness examined in the cane vroro the
Virginia wlfo , the Council Binds wife
and Carpenter himself. The "Virgin ! *
wlfo testified to having boon married
to him some yoara ago , and produced
her certificate. She also testified to
his having deserted her and her four
children nearly three years ago. The
defense tried to break the foroo of
her orldonco by causing her to admit
that she had a child ainco his depar
ture , and of which ho iraa not the
father. The Oonnoll Bluffs wlfo , a
girl of only fifteen , nlso testified on to
his- marrying her only a few
mouths ago. and that he had
deserted her , leaving her In a dolloato
condition. The young man only tried
to explain that ho had hoard his first
wife had got | a divorce from him , and
then on learning that aho had not he
[ oft his second wife until ho could got
ono from his first wlfo. The jury
promptly and justly returned a verdict
lindlng Carpenter guilty of bigamy ,
and in a few days ho will receive hi *
Carpenter's mother , from Virginia ,
was present and sat boaido her sou
during most of the trial. The two
wives sat bosldo each other and
aeomod qulto friendly , and while the
jury was ont the prlionor moved ever
to where they were and chatted with
them for some mlnutoi. Much
sympathy is felt for the women
who have boon the victims of
the knavo's villainy , while
an equally universal feeling
is apparent that the full extent of the
law will bo too little punishment for
such a rascal as ho has proved to be.
Another chapter has boon added to
Carpenter's history. It Is claimed
that when ho loft hero ho was in com
pany with a crook , and that they com-
mlttod a burglary in the eastern part
of the state , for which his comrade
was arrested , and a warrant iainod for
Carpenter's arroat , also. Carpenter's
pal , who is known as McOroa , oliau
Henry , is also wanted here for seduc
ing a hired girl and , after getting her
money as well as her honor , skipping ,
away to commit other deviltry.
