A Christmas Legend.
It was Christinas Evo. Tho night
was very dark and the snow falling fast,
as Hermann, tho charcoal-burner, drew
his cloak tighter around 111 in , and tho
wind whistled fiercly through tho trees
of tho Ulack Forest. Ho had been to
carry a load to a castle near, nnd was
hastening home to his little hut. Al
though hu worked very hard, ho was
poor, gaining barely enough for the
wants of his wife and four little children,
lie was thinking of them, when ho
heard a faint wailing. Guided by the
sound, lie groped about nnd found a lit
tle child, scantily clothed, shivering and
sobbing by Itself In tho snow.
"Why, llttlo one, havo they left thee
hero all nlono to faco tho cruel blast?"
Tho child answered nothing, but look
ed plteottsly up In tho charcoal-bur-cr's
"Well, 1 cannot leavo then here. Thou
would'st bo dead before tho morning."
So saying, Hermann raised It In his
arms, wrapping it in his cloak and
warming Its little cold hands In his bo
som. When ho arrived at his hut, ho
put down the child and tapped nt tho
door, which was Immediately thrown
open, nnd the children rushed to luedt
"Here, wife, Is a guest to our Christ
mas Eve supper,' said he, leading In
tho little one, who held timidly to his
finger with Its tiny hand.
"And wo'como ho Is," said tho wife.
"Now let lil 111 come and warm himself
by the fire."
The children all pressed round to
welcome and gazo nt. the llttlo new com
er. They showed him their pretty fir-
tree, decorated with bright, colored
lamps In honor of Christinas Eve, which
tho good mother had endeavored to
make a fcto for tho children.
Then they sat down to supper, each
child contributing of It'i portion for the
guest, looking with admiration at its
clear, blue eyes and golden hair, which
shone so as to shed a brighter light In
the little room ; and as they gazed, it
grew Into a sort of halo round h! head,
and his eyes beamed with a heavenly
luster. Soon two white wings appear
ed nt his shoulders, and ho seemed to
grow larger and larger, and then tho
beautiful vision vanished, sptcading out
his hands ns In benediction over them.
Hermann nnd his wife fell on their
knees, exclalmlng.ln awe-struck voices:
"Tho holy Christ-child!'' and then em
braced their wondeiing chirdren In Joy
anil thank ful 11 c-is that they had enter
tained tho Heavenly Guest.
The next moining.ns Hermann pass
ed tl.o place where ho had found the
fair child, he saw a cluster ot lovely
whllu Uowers, with dark green leaves,
looking ns though tho snow Itself lnul
blossomed. Hermann plucked some,
carried them reverently homo to his
wlfo and children, who treasured thu
fair bliiRsoms nnd tended them in re
membrance, of that wonderful Christ'
masEu', calling them Chrysanthcimis;
and every yenr,s the time came round,
they put aside a portion of their i'eait
and gavo it to some pour little child, ac
cording to tho words of Christ: "Inas
much as ye have dune It unto one of
thu least of the;o,my bretheieii.yo have
done It unto me." Florence Scannell,
lu St. Nicholas for Jantinry.
The Bird's Christmas Carol.
They have sweet Christmas music lu
Norway Norway, that far-off country,
with the steel-blue sky and frozen sea.
It Is a song In thu nlr. Thuslmplo
peasants make tho birds that Inhabit
those rudu coasts and Icy valleys so very
happy on this one day of the year that
they sing of their own accord a glad
carol on Christinas morning, and all thu
people coittu out of their houses nnd re
joice to hear It.
Ou Christmas Eve, after tho birds
have sought 1 hotter from the north
wind, and tho still night Is bright with
stars, tho good people bring from their
ttore-houscs sheaves of corn and wheat,
and, tying them to slender pules, raise
them from every spire, barn, gate-post
and gable. Then, when after the long
night, thu Christmas sun arises, crown
ing thu mountains with splendor, every
plre aud gable bursts into sudden song.
The children run out to bear thu old
church-spire singing; the older peoplo
lollow; thu air Is titled with tho flutter
of wings and alive with carols of glad
ness. The song of the birds fills every
vlllago with happiness, and to this llv-

Lovo often has moro Influence than
talent. Tie last appeals to thu reason,
the last to affections; thu last speaks lo
tho Intellect, but the first goes straight
to the heart. "It is beautiful," ex
claims a sweedlsh author, "to believe
ourselvess beloved, especially by thoso
whom wo love and valtto. Yes, It I
beautiful certainly; but woo to ns it wo
neglect the lesponslblllty attached to
It has been truly said, the loving and
unsoin-ih almost Insensibly dissuade
from evil, and pursuado to good, all
who come within reach of their sooth

lonu towards tho happiness or misery oC
another world; and little cm the most
Insignificant of beings conjecturo how
ever extensive may havo been tho beno
lclal or even effects which have atten

"In the heraldly of heaven," writes
ISlshop Ilnrnc. "goodness precedes great
ness;" so on earth It Is far more power
ful. Thu lowly and tho loving may
frequently do moro In their limited
sphere, than tho gifted. To yield con
stantly in little things begets tho samo
yielding spirit In others, and renders
life by the wise Disposer ot events, who
knows what is suited to our various
capacities and talents much better than
we do ourselves, and who would not
have placed us hero If lie had not some
thing for us to do. How few there aro
live up to their power of being usaful ,
earth Is our dwelling place, whero each
has his or her appointed sphere- ot use
fulness, their mission of love-duty, as
they pass hoinoward to heaven.
