A STOKY rOK CIlltlRT.M .
It was tliu twi'iitv-thiiil of Dt'cenilier.a
cold iniht had boon falling, freezing as it
fell, tlio sky was gray, anil tho short
winter afternoon win growing fast into
night. Up the straggling village street
a little urchin was trudging along, not
cheerily and with boyish whistling, but
slowly and painfully, stopping every
how and then to give a pull to the rag
ged woolen soeks, which were all tho
covering his little feet possessed. The
cobble-stone walk was slippery with the
frozen sleet, and often the poor little
chilled feet stumbled and hurt them
selves cruelly ; but their owner was one
of those pitiful examples of how even
suffering can become expeeteJ, and ho
endured his bruises with u pathetic
patience. After the row of cot
tages on each side of the inn above tho
door of which nwung tho sign of the
"Half iNIoon" came the church, with its
iron g lies, open to-day, for busy hands
were bringing holly and ivy and laurel,
lo ''make beautiful the home of
tho Lord," for the "vvhito day" of
tho year. Heyotid tho chinch stretch
ed the grass lields, and then the ivy top

the hollow, where heavy machinery clat

As tho child passed the cliuivh ha
heard voices, and stopping a minute he
looked through tho grating, wondering
dimly it tlio "gentle folks ever, ever

Mrs. Ellmuore, tho vicar's wife, was
coming out, hor bauds full of gleauiin"
lurries and shining leaves j tho was talk

was locking up tho church.

Air. hairbanks was verv grave and
silent all that evening. His wife looked
at him wonderingly from her end of the
table, as hesu'iit away dish after dish un
tasted. lie seemed not even to hear the
iiierrv chatter of his children, who were
eagerly discussing a ball to which they
hatl just received invitations. He was
fond and proud of his handsome son and
his pretty daughters, but to-night their
laughter jarred upon him. Across tho
learning .silver and glas, he saw tho
wan, pinched face of a child, the spark

flowers fa led aw.vy, anil he stood again
under the cold gray sky in tho village

A Judge's Charge with Viiriations.
The following comes from Gcoigia,
und its accuracy is vouched for by the
stenographer who took it down:
Judge was noted for the way ho
got mixed in his charges to the jury.
On one occasion a case was tried before
him tho points of which may be briolly
stated thus: Smith brought suit against
Jones upon a promissory note given fora
horse. Jones' defense was failure of
consideration, ho averring that at tHo
time of tho purchase the horso had the
of which ho died, and that
Smith knew it. Smith replied that the
horso did not have the glanders, but had
tho distemper, and that .Tones knew it
when ho bought.
The judge charged the jurv: 'Gentle
men of the jury, pay attention to the
charge of the court. Vou have already
made ono mis trial of this case because
you did not pay attention lo tho charge
of the Court, and I don't want you to
do it again. I intend to make it so clear
to ymi this lime that you cannot possibly
make any mistake. This suit is upon a
nolo given for a promissory horse. 1
hope you understand that. Now, if you
find that at tho time of the sale Smith
had tho glanders, and Jones knew it,
Jones can not recover. That is clear,
gentlemen. I will state it agiin. If
you find that at tho time of thesale Jones
had the di.-tcmpcr, nnd Smith knew it
then Smith cannot possibly recover. But,
gentlemen, 1 will state it a third time,
so that you cannot possibly make a mis
take. If at the time of the sale Smith
had the glanders, and Joins had lho
distemper and the horse knew it, then
neither Smith, Jones nor the horse can
