Another year has passed away,
Anolbo portion ot "tse tale Is told."
Again we're trjlnjto Iw mo ry
O'er growing old.
Again with clangof bells and roar of guus,
And every merry Bound tho air Is rent,
TU strange the world saould be so Jolly
O'er tlino misspent.
Tho old star has not been unkind,
1s t well to laugh, now ho lies gaunt and
Me used us better, kindlier fir
Than we used him.
Ho gave us wealth of corn and wine,
lie gave us peace and Joy and life,
We gale bis precious golden hours
To prlJo and strife.
Then lt us mourn th1) good old j ear that's
And let the bells ring him a parting knell,
Tho whllo we greet the hanpv new, and pray,
To uso lilm well.

THE MAItUIAOE OK SANTA I'LAUSK
once Santa Clause svbered and said with a sigh,
While a tear added luslro to each twlnillngeje,
"Oh I I'm get ting so lonely and weary of life,
I need a companion, or, better, a wife ;
Hut where coula I Ilnd one to share my Joy,
And love, as 1 1 ve, every gltl and hoy."

HOW IT WAS KEPT-
HT XIAUY CIUACK HAI.l'INB.
'You ami I will iiuyit mnrry, will we,
Tourt' said pretty .Jessie Juniper to her
tall anil handsome brother.
'Never, eis.was tho quite- emphatio respond-.
'We will live together all our
days, and he just the happiest old maid
anil old haehelor that ever existed!'
This was the compact entered into by
Jessie and her brother Tom not long af
ter the death of tneirfatheri and certain
ly none was ever made in moio sincerity
ami good faith. Tom had always con
sidered Jessie as itiBt thu best and clear
est sister in the woihl, and .lessio was
ecpially sure there was no one cpiite like
brother Tom.and in the sorrow and lone
liness of their eominou beieaveiuent,
their lieaits turned to each other with
redoubled tenderness and affection,
Mr. Juniper had been in ailhicnt cir
cumstances, leaving his pioperty, by
will, to his two children, to bo divided
by them in any way to suit themselves.
And here arose the nearest approach to
a ipiarrel that tho two had ever had;
Jessie declared that Tom, who had all
the trouble of its iiianagcmeut, ought to
have the largest portion, and Tom in
sisting, ju.t as strenuously, that Jessie,
who was less able to care for herself,
ounht to have inoro than he. It was fl.
nally settled that Jessie was to take the
money and personal property, ami Tom
the business and real estate, and that
they wero to live together in the old
homestead, just as they always hail
Tom certainly had no reason to be dis
satislied with this arrangement. Jessie
was not only housekeeper, but took u
genuine piide aud pleasure in her work.
The house was oidcrly and his meals
nicely cooked anil served, and Jessie al
ways reiuly in tho evening to talk to, or
to play ami sing for him.
Jessie had no cause for discontent,
either. Tom was a model brother, al.
ways merry aud good teiupeied, ami
rarely coming home witlio.it bring,
ing her a new book or magazine,
or wmi'tliic that 1i thought would

interest and please her. Neither of
them went much into society, but when
they did it was always together) it being
often remarked how attentive Tom was
to his sister at such times, anil how hap.
py Jessie was with her brother's; escort
and society. This arrangement was not
so satisfactory, however, to many of
their mutual friends and acquaintances,
ami there was a good deal of murmur
ing, especially among the sterner sex,
some of whom did not hesitate to de
clare 'that it was downright sellish in
in Tom Juniper thus to monopolize his
pretty siter, especially when there were
plenty of other people's sisters around
Tom visited New York every three
months for the puipose of biiying goods,
One dny he returned from tho city in
high spirits even for hiip.
'I met John Hammond in New York,
Jessie. He's head clerk in a large whole
sale house there. And such a gloiorus
time as we had talking over old affairs!
He's just the same frank, pleasant, agree
able fellow! You remember my iutiodii
cing him to you at thu State fair a year
ago last fall,"
Yes. Did ho mention his sister Julia?
We were schoolmates, you know, and
'I saw her. Nothing would suit but 1
must go home with him to dinner. I
spent two evenings there, besides; and
very pleasant evenings (hey were. John
is just as outspoken and full of fun as
ever. What tlo you think he said to
me as we went out for a stroll afler din
ner!" 'Tom, old fellow,' s.iid he, 'why don't
you get married? A steady, sensible,
good-looking manlike you ought to have
I told him that I had the best sister
and housekeeper in the world, and didn't
need any. Then you ought to have
heard him lecture mo on my selfishness.
' 'Not content,' ho said, 'with refusing
to make some woman happy, but you
must go deliberately to work to make
some poor man wretched for life.'
'I declare sis, I began to be afraid that
it was a little sellish and miserly to keep
so much sweetness and beauty under
lock and key."
'Nonsense, Tom!' retoited Jessie, eol
oring. 'As though I would exchange
my brother for the best man living. And
I think it is v,ery impertinent in Mr.
Hammond to to make such uncalled-for
remarks about me.'
'You're entirely in the wrong,' was the
eager response; 'John had not such a
thought in his heait, in fact, he has a
a high respect for you. Said he had
heard Julia talk of voti so much that he
felt quite acquainted. She has your pic
tuie in her album. I've seen her photo
graph in yours and so recognized it at
'Julia was just the dearest and sweet
est girl in school,' responded Jessie, with
enthusiasm. 'How was she looking,and
what did she weart'
'I couldn't tell you a thing that she
wore; though I knowthat it was all ery
stylish and wonderfully becoming. As
to her face, it is very interesting anil at-
ti active. Out not so pretty as yours.
'lliats because you are so partial to
me, loin,' said .leosie, lauglnng aim
blushing. 'Julia was always called a
great deal the prettiest tit school.'
She is certainly very ngreeahle. And
I must say that John and I are both very
fortunate in our sisters. She sent you
more kind messages than I can remem
ber; made ine promise tohiingyou with
me iho next time I came to the city.'
Tom was careful to keep his word,
taking his siter with him the next time
lie went to New Yoik for the purpose
ot spending a tew weeks with her olel
schoolmate. John and Tom weie hon
estly glad to see e.eh other, mid as for
the two gills, they wore delighted with
the opportunity to renew their sehoolday
tiiemlship. Altugether it was a very
pleasant and happy party.
This being Jessie's first . isit to New
York, John and his sister formed vari
cms plans for the enteitainment of their
guest, some of which weie eaiiitd into
execution during the period of Tom's
stay which was limited.
Now Jessie had not only a warm,
grateful heait, hut was very deiiionstia
tivein her affection, and she was far
fioin satisfied with her brolher's bearing
towaid their fair and lovely hostess, of
whom she was so affectionately fond.
'"J'is nothing in the woild but shyness,'
she said to herself; 'lint it looks like cold
ness and inattention, anil 1 wouldn't
have Julia think ill of Tom for tho woild,
I must give him a hint.'
Jessie gave her brother a strong hint
the fust time they were alone together.
'You know, Tom, dear,' she said,
there is no one, generally speaking, that
I would so soon have for iny eseoit as
you; hut now that we are both visiting
a lady fiiend, it is dil'feient. Julia is do
ing all she can to make my slay with
her pleasant, and I want you to be just
as polite and attentho to heraspossi

ly with his sister's suggestion, not onlv
giving her no further cause to find fault
with him in this respect, but much for

Heretofore Tom's stay in the city nev

ed nearly three. Then business obliged
him to return, leaving his sister, at Jul
ia's eager requosi, to leniain a while

was tho person chiefly at fault in the
matter, if fault it could ho called Ho
had offered her his own heart in return,
which,if not a fair eqivalcnt, was ceitain
ly the best he could do.
John was such au eager and ardent
suitor, overruling so completely all her
objections, that it was only when Jessio
was seated in tho cars, on her way homo
that she began to reflect on tho nature of
tho pledgo nhii had given him, nnd how
seriously it conflicted with mother and

the poor, dear fellow shamefully every
way. There he's been taking his meals
al the hotel all these weeks, and liv ing
nobody knows how. And now I've almost
promised John I'll leave him altogether.'
.Now John was on the same tram
though Jessie was ignorant of it, being
altogether too good a general not to fol
low up his advantage. When the train
stopped at Cedarville he was careful to
remain out of sight until Jessie had left
it. Not being expected on that train
Jessie found no one waiting for her at
tho station, and so took the most direct
way home, meeting Tom at the door.
Having wrought heiself up to a pitch
of remorseful tenderness. Jessie threw
her arms around her brother's neck and
burst into tears, then, having bestowed
upon herself a variety of epithets of a
far from complimentary nature, she
ended by declaring that 'she was never
half so wretched in her life.'
The thoughts that were uppermost in
Tom's mind made li'mi ascribe his sister's
otherwise unaccountable words and con
duct to only one source. Ho looked great
ly perplexid and troubled.

much it grievis me to give you any pain.

Christmas, the day on which the tiativ
ity ol thu Saviour is observed. The In
stitution of this festival is attributed by
tho spin ions Decretals to Telesphorus,
who flourished in the region of Aiitoiiius
fins (lUS 101 A. I).), but the hist cor
tain traces of it are found about the time
of the Kmperor Uoininudiis (lbO lt)i
A. D.) lu the region Dieletian ('JSl
.It),) A. D.) while that ruler was keeping
coin t at Nii'oinedia, lie learned that a
multitude of Christians were assembled
in the city to celebrate the hiilhdny of
Jesus, and having ordcied the church
doors lo be closed, and stt fire tothe
biiilding..inil all the worshipers pciish
ed in the flumes. It does not appear,
however, that there was any uniformity
in the peiiod of observing the nativity
among the eaily churches; some held the
festival in the month of May or April,
otheis in January. It is nevertheless al
most certain that the I'.'dh of December
cannot be llie nativity of the Saviour, for
it is then the height'of the rainy season
in Judea, and .shepherds could hardly be

Christmas not only became the parent
of many later festivals', such as those of
the Virgin, but especially from the "dh
to thu Sth century, g.itheicd round il, as
it were, several other leslivals, partly old
and pattly nuw, so that what may ho
termed a Christinas Cycle sprang up,
which surpassed all other groups of
Christian holidays in the manifold Holi
ness of its festal ii liiges, and furthered,
more than any other, the completion of
the orderly and systematic distribution of
church festivals over the whole year.
Not casually or arbitrary was thu festival
of thu Nativity celebrated on the B.'ith
of December. Among tho causes that
co-operated in liung this period as the
propel one, peihaps tho most powerful
was, that almost all the heathen nations
regarded the winter-solstice as a most im
poitaut point of the year, as the begin
ning of llie renewed life and activity of
the powers of nature, and of the gods,
who were oiiginally merely the symbol
ical personification of these. In more
northerly countries, this net must have
made itself peculiarly palpable hence
thu Celts ami Germans fronr the oldest
times, celebrated the season with the
jieatest festivities. At the winter-sol
stice, the (teriiians buhl their great ule
feast (see Yule), in commemoration of
the return of tho fiery sun wheel; and be
lieved that, during the twelve nights
reaching from the 2."th of December to
the Oth of January, they could trace the
personal movements and inteitereiiees e.n
earth of their deities, Odin, Uerchta. ifcc.
Many of the beliefs and usages of the
ihl liermans and also of the Honians re
lating to this matter, passed over from
heathenism to Cluistianitv, and have
paitly survived to the piesent day. lint
the church also sought to comh.it and
banish and it was to a huge extent suc
cessful the deep-rooted heathen feeling,
by adding for thu purification of the
heathen customs and leats which it re
tained its gradually devised liturgy,
besides dramatic representations of the
birth of Christ and the first events of his
life. Hence sprung the so-called 'Man
ger songs,' and a multitude of Christmas
carols,as well as Christmas elraiiias,whicli.
it certain times anil places deixenrated
into farces or Fools' Feasts (q. v.) Hence

The people who have the c-iiisc good

to the best attitude to take tow'nids thu

would delight in witnessing the masterly
representations of au F.dwin Hooth or a

selvis that privilege because they think
il wrong to countenance thealie going
in any shape, is still a largo one, though
by no means so large as it was in thoso
days when the novel and tho theatre
we're about iiiuler the same ban. 'Undo
