Dr. Grantley K r a alone in his office, his
head resting on his hands, thinking deeply.
He had not been thus solitary many minutes,
for a frail, delicate girl had just left him ) his
eldest daughter and his darling, who had
filled the place of mothlr and sister, too, to
the younger children of the Deem' r. Marion
Grantley carried from this interview a heavy.
heart. It was the old, old story—she loved;
waslieloved, and her father. frowned upon
her lover. There was ii() ; persouril dislike
between Dr. Grantley and - i Morton Loring,
but, in years long past, Amos Loring, ' the
young man's father, and iGeorge Grantley,
rivals in love, had sworn undying, bitter
hatred,and for this' old quarrel,though Amop
Loring was numbered with the dead, 'Dr.
Grantley was breaking the heart of his gen.
tle, dutiful child. Her last words, as she
left him, uttered in low, pleading accents,
were; "Father, you know I will never dig
obey you; hut it is Christmas eve; for the
day's sake, by the memory of my mother,
who wiis taken into IMixven seven years ago
this evening, by the love I have ever tried
to show you, forget this old quarrel. Let
me bring to you one who, for my sake, will
be a son in your old age, who loves and re
spects you. Father, do not break my heart."
In reply, the ,. Doctor merely waved his
hand toward the door, and quietly, sadly,
with violent outbreak' of passion to tell
her bitter grief,'Mnrion passel out. From
the office, across the entry, she iventanto
• k .
the parlor. There was a blazoof light there,
and round the centre-table were clustered
four little sisters,and one brother, her moth
er's legacy to Marion—a pretty blonde, just
entering her nineteenth year—leoked up as
his sister entered. There was no discon
tented, fretful glance to throw back her lov
ing one; gentle, serene, and tender,'Mari
) upon the group, stifling brick her
own sorrow to give them a Christmas greet
ing.
"Oh, I Wish it was to•moriow!" cried
Eddie, the youngest, a boy of eight years
old,tho pet and.darling of all the five sisters:
"TO morrow evening !" said Fanny t , the
next in order, "0-morrow evening ! 0 such
fun.' A Christmas tree !"
"I am sorry I. did not have it this eve:
ning," said Marion, ‘i'fyon are so impatient;
but Aunt Lizzie's box of presents from New
York always comes on:Christmas day, and
we can make a much prettier tree if its con
tents are hung upon it."
"Won't it be fun to dress it?" whispered
Grace, who-was to he the only one admitted
to this delightful task." . .
"Oh; Marion, w ill it have my work•box

cried Hester.
"And my doll'," cried Fannie.
"And my set of china things?—yon know
yon promised no a now sot,” And fairly
started, all the children joined in the list of
demands, making a porfek Babt4 of the
.
The little mantel cheek strut.): nine. As
the last stroke died • away, Aaiun pointed
with ft smile to •the clock, and the children
rose, kissed their sisters. and wont merrily
to bed; Fannie leading Eddie, while Hester
and littlo girls of eleven and twelve )
went up arm in arm. • •
i nhere is so mach to do tomorrow,
Gracie," said Marion, ns the chamber door
closed, shutting -out tho sound of the merry
voices, -I 'ol4 are so many things to \ attend
to that I think we will. dross the tree this
opening. We eau shut the folding doors, and
keep thechildren from the back. parlor
,to
morrow,and it will not take many minutes to
tiling Aunt Liv.zio's presents upon the tree,
when they arrive in the morning." • • •
"0 yes, we will dross it now. 1 will call
father." And the young girl danced of to
the office, hatmnilig a merry tune. Marion,
in the mean time, went out to n closet in the
entry, and brought in n large baize covering
for the centre of the floor. was green,
and meant ioi the foundation of the beauti—
ful show Marion's tree always made. Grace
and the Doctor soon came in, nail, the pro•
eess.of making Christmas tree commenced
in good earnest.
The square of green baize being tacked
down, a large stone •ar was placed in the
middle of it, and in this the tree stood nobly
erect. Damp sand was put around the stem
till the largo green tree stood firmly in. it s
place. A flounce of green chintz round the
jar concealed its stony ugliness, and over the
top around the tree, was a soft cushion of
moss, It a lrg . e evergreen, reach
ing almost:topie high ceiling, for nll the
family proselts wore to be placed upon it.
This finislid,lthe process of dressing com
menced. FrLi a basket in tho corner,
Marion droW long strings of bright rod holly
berries, threaded like beads upon fini. cord.
These were festooned in graceful giirlands
from the boughs of the tree, and while Mari
on was thus employed, Grace .and Doctor
arranged the 'tiny ropers. This 'was a del
icate task. Long pieces of fine wire were
.passed through the taper at the bottoin, 4nd
• I
these clasped over the stem of each branch,
and twisted together underneath. Great
care was taken that there should be clear
space about each wick, that nothing might
catch fire. Strings of bright berries, small
boquets of paper fiver's, strings of bends,
tiny flags of gny ribbons, stars and shields
of' gilt paper, lace; bags filled with colored
candies, knots of bright ribboniii all home
Made by Marion's and °mice's skilful fingers,
made a brilliant show at a very trifling cost;
the basket seeming possessed of unheard of
capacities, to judge twin the multitude and
variety of articles the sisters drew from 'it.
Meantiii\e, upon the wick of each little taper,
the Doctor rubbed with his fingers a drop of
alcohol, to insure its lighting quickly. This
was a process to be' trusted,to no one else,
for fear the spirit might pill upon some part
of the tree not Meant'to Catch fire.
Marion, unconscious that her father's eye
followed.her in every movement, tried to
keep up a - cheerful smile, for her sister's
sake, yet sometiines a weary sigh would
come from her overcharged heart, as the
preparations for festivity and the weight of
her oarn sorrow struck her. At last all the con
tents Of the basket were on the troe,and then
the more invortant presents were brou'ght
down ftioin an upper room. 'There were
many large articles, seemingly too clumsy
for the tree, but . Marion passed around them
gay-colored ribbons till they formed a bus
ket4Ork, and Itiopethem over the branch
es till even Heater's workbox looked grace•
ful. Dolls for each OAK; little , girls were
seated on the boughs, and a large cart for
Eddie, with two horses prancing befbre'it,
drove gaily among the• top branched, as if
each steed possessed the wings of l'egastia.
On the moss beneath the 'branches,,,Marion
placed, a set of wooden animals for Eddie,
while from the topmost branch was suspend

Various mysterious' packages, wrapped in
