Christmas in Europe was celebrated in
the utual liYely manner. The royal familiei
-enjoyed the day by decorating trees for their

amounted to 10,000.

London is just resuming its normal condi
tion after its two days' holiday. As Britons
consider the anniversary of the birth of
Christ purely a spiritual occasion, that
closes saloons and. opens churches, thus
rnsiaqg it necessary for a temporal holiday
to follow, with the churches closed and sa
loons open, of course all of the Iiondoners
who could get out of town for the two days
did so, and an estimate of the number of
people who purchased tickets at the various
metropolitan railroad stations makes the fig
Tkiw were still & few millions left how-
crer, and to these there was plenty of
amusement afforded. Barnum led every
thing, of course, more than 30,000 people
visiting the Olympia on Thursday, where a
new programme was given and the Circus
Maximal added to Kiralfy'a "Nero."
Ten or 20,000 people were also turned away
from Barnnm's Crystal Palace, which enter
tained the next highest number ef amuse
ment seekers to the American show, 23,253
men, women and children being accommo
dated there, and 13,000 Tisiting MmcTus
caud's wax works.
XOTS OF OTHEE TITS.
There were scores of other amusements as
wellatCovent Garden, Drury Lane and
Her Majesty's Theaters. Christmas panto
mimes were performed to the full seating
and standing capacity of each house, and
thousands were turned away from Tarious
theaters. The pantomimes were unusually
brilliant this year, "Jack and the Bean
stalk," at Drury Lane, in particular being
one of the most magnificent spectacles ever
produced on the stage, though it is far out
done br Kiralfy's creat perform
ance at the Ofympia. "Cinderella"
was given both at Covent Garden and
Her Majesty's, at the former theater a live
lion riding about the ring on a Horse and
jumping from its back through a hoop, in
the best circus manner. Drury Lane, how
ever, discounted this performance by intro
ducing a new strong man, Carl Abs, who
lifted a full-sized horse four inches off the
stage. It is probable the lion trick will
have to be abandoned at Covent Garden, as
the new performer is just arriving at
maturity, and is likely to develop the
inherent ferocity of his nature at any

The other members of the Austrian royal
family, the Emperor included, were busy
early "in the week sending out presents to
the charitable institutions and poor citizens
of Vienna. The Archduke Charles Louis

a huge Christmas tree in the best parlor of

CHARITY OF THE POPE. v
The Pope celebratedthe festive season in
charasteriitio fashion by civing from his
private purse nearly 50,000 irancs to the
poor of Borne.
The royal family of Italy have not had a
particularly merry week. King Humbert
Is suffering from the worries of State busi
ness, his bair is white, and he has some
throat trouble of which the surgeons are not
allowed to talk. Queen Margaret has been
a martyr to the toothache, and the heir to
the Italian throne, the Prince of Naples,
never a healthy lsd, has been kept to his
studies so closely that he has had to be
taken oat of the hands of tutors to save his
brain and perhaps his life.
