fler First Christmas Keeping.
' (These short serial stories are copyrighted by Bacheller, Johnson & Bach

their appearance In the leading daily journals of the large cities).
Fifty years ago Serena Ann lived In
Bralntree. and Christmas-keeping was
not yet much the fashion in New Eng
land. Serena Ann was ten years old,
and she had never seen a Christmas
tree, hung up her stocking, or had a
Christmas present even.
Serena Ann's father was a farmer;
She had a mother, and an Aunt Love,
her mother's sister, who lived with
them, and was to be married In Febru
ary, and a brother Ebenezer.
Ebenezer was two years older than
Serena Ann, and went to the district
school winters. Serena Ann herself
went to school only in the summer.
She was a delicate little girl, and the
schoolhuuse was too far away for her
to walk in cold weather. So she stayed
at home, and her mother heard her
spell every day, and she did sums cm a
piece of old slate, and was reading the
Bible through, a chapter every morn
ing. So her education was not neg
lected. One night in the first week in Decem
ber, Serena Ann was sitting beside the
fire, with the piece of broken slate on
her lap, trying to do a sum about ten
grayhounds running a race, and how
long it would take for one to catch up
with the other, when Ebenezer came
home from school. There was a light
snow falling, and Ebenezer was pow
dered with it. lie came in stamping his
cowhide shoes and shaking himself like
a dog. Aunt Love was sewing green
velvet on her wedding pelisse, Mrs. iiag
ley was paring apples for sauce. "Don't
stamp so, Ebenezer," said she. "And
don't shake the snow on my pelisse,"
cried Aunt Love. Aunt Love was very
pretty, with smooth brown hair, and
pink cheeks.
"I've got to get the snow off," panted
Ebenezer. "Oh, mother!"
"You ought to get it off in the shed,
then," said his mother.
"Oh, mother!"
"And not shake it all over the clean
floor, and your aunt's pelisse."
Oh, mother, Sammy Morse says he's
going to hang up his stocking the night
before Christmas!"
Then Serena Ann looked up from' her
piece of slate and her grayhounds.
"I don't want to hear any such non
sense," said Mrs. Dagley.
"He says his folks are going to put
Something in it for him."
"If they want to be so silly they can."
"Mother, can't I hang up my stock
ing?" "Yes," said his mother, "you can hang
it up all you want to, but you won't get
anything in it. You have all the pres
ents your father can afford to give you,
right along. Now go out in the shed
and bring in an arm full of that apple
trea wood for the fire."
And Ebenezer went out disconso
lately. SerenalAnn pulled her mother's apron.
"Mother, can't I hang up my stocking?"
she whispered.
"You can hang It up, but I shall tell
you what I did Ebenezer. You won't
get anything in It. I shan't treat one
of you any better than I do the other."
"I never hung up my stocking since
I was born," said Serena Ann. plaint
ively. "Neither did I," said her mother. "I
never thought of such a thing 'when I
was a little girl. Now, 'tend to your
And Serena Ann attended to her sum;
but the thought of Christmas seemed
to gain upon her childish mind much
faster than one grayhound upon the
other. She could not quite give up the
hope that possibly, if she did hang up
her stocking, somebody might put some
thing in it. If not her mother, Aunt
Love, or her father might, or even
Joshua Simmons, the young man whom
Aunt L'ove was going to marry; he
sometimes gave her a peppermint. And
after all her mother was a pretty tender
one, and she might relent. So Serena
Ann hung up her stocking the night be
fore Christmas.'
It Is quite possible if Mrs. Bagley had
seen that poor little blue yarn stocking
hanging in the chimney corner she
might have slipped at least a bunch of
raisins, and a cinnamon stick or two.
Into it, and Aunt Love might have
tucked in a bit of blue ribbon. Hut no
body saw it, for Serena Ann, with the
want of calculation of her innocent
heart, slipped out after everybody was
In bed and hung it up.
At breakfast the next morning Serena
Ann's mouth drooped pitifully at the
corners, and she did not eat much.
"You are a silly girl to act so," said
her mother. "You knew what I told
"I s'poso Sammy Morse has got his
stocking chuck full," said Ebenezer.
He felt Serena Ann's Injury to be his
"Go out in the shed and bring In somo
wore of that apple-tree wood, If you've
finished your breakfast," said his moth
er, and then she sent Serena Ann up
stairs to make her bed.
As soon as the door closed, Aunt Love
turned to her sister. "Suppose Joshua
and I take Serena Ann to Boston with
us," said she.
Mrs. Bagley looked at her doubtfully.
"I'm afraid she'll be In your way," she
"No, she won't, and it will make up to
her for not having anything in her
stocking. I felt sorry for her. Serena
Ann is a good little girl."
"Well, I felt sorry she took It so to
heart," said Serena Ann's mother, "but
It's a silly custom, and I don't know
how to begin it. I suppose she would
be tickled to death to go with you and
Joshua. She never went to Boston but
once; Ebenezer's been twice."
"She must come right down and get
ready If she's going, said Aunt Love,
"for Joshua will be 'here with the
And Serena Ann was called and told,
to her Joy and wonder, that she was to
go to Boston' with Aunt Love and
Joshua Simmons. "But you must be a
good girl and not make any trouble,"
said her mother, "for your Aunt Love
has a great deal to do. She Is going to
buy some of her furniture, and her wed
ding bonnet and shoes, and she Is very
kind to take you."
And Serena Ann promised beamingly.
She had never felt so- happy In her life
as she did that Christmas morning,
when she set forth to visit Boston,
tucked in between Aunt Love and Josh
ua Simmons in the chaise. It was very
pleasant, but cold; there was a slight
rime of snow on the ground, which
shone like silver. Serena Ann wore her
thick wadded coat, her lambs-wool tip
pet and her wadded brown silk hood
with cherry strings. She was quite
warm, and her face was so pink and
radiant with bliss that Aunt Love and
Joshua looked at her, and Biniled at each
other above her head.
Serena Ann, moreover,, had, tightly
grasped in one red-mittened hand, her
mother's silk purse, and it contained
two ninepences, one of which she was
to spend for herself, and the other for a
jack-knife for Ebenezer. 1 ler father had
given them to her when she started. She
made up her mind, as they jogged along
over the frozen road, that she would
spend her ninepence for an nitron for
her mother instead of anything for her
self, because she could not go to Boston
In a chaise.
When they reached the city they
stopped at the Sign of the Lamb, where
Joshua Simmons put up his team;, then
they all went shopping down Hanover
street, where the fashionable stores
were at thut time.
Serena Ann enjoyed buying Aunt
Love's and Joshua Simmons' wedding
furniture quite as much as they did,
She thought there was never anything
quite so handsome as their haircloth
sofa, and mahogany card-table and
looking glass, and she trudged after
them to all the shops where they priced
articles and then back to the one where
they found them cheapest and best,
and never thought of being tired.
But she was glad at noon to go back
to the Sign of the Lamb and have some
baked beans and a piece of pumpkin
pie. They seemed to her far superior to
the baked beans and pie at home.
After dinner Joshua Simmons left
them. He had to go a little farther to
see about his own wedding suit, and
Aunt Love meanwhile was to buy her
wedding bonnet and shoes, and Serena
Ann make her purchases. Then they
were to meet at the Sign of the Lamb,
and go home.
Serena Ann went with her aunt from
shop to shop, and watched her try on
bonnets until she finally bought a beau
tiful one of green uncut velvet trimmed
with white plumes and . white lute
string ribbon. Then they started to buy
the shoes, Aunt Love carrying the bon
net in a large green bandbox.
There was quite a crowd In Hanover
street that afternoon. A great many
ladies were out shopping. Serena Ann
could not walk beside her aunt very well,
Smiled at r.ncli Other Above Her Head.
she was so Jostled, soshe fell behind. Now
and then she took hold of the skirt of
her aunt's blue delaine gown, so as not
to lose her.
Nobody ever knew how it happened,
but suddenly, after she had been pushed
by the hurrying people and had caught
hold of the blue delaine gown, the lady
who wore it looked around and she was
not Aunt Love. She was very pretty,
but her hair was black and fell in
bunches of curls, instead of smooth
braids, over her red cheeks, and her
eyes were black Instead of blue. More
over, she wus very finely dressed, wear
ing a velvet pelisse and a rich fur tippet,
and bearing before her a great fur muff.
The blue delaine gown was the only
thing about this strange young lady
that In the least resembled Aunt Love.
She stood looking with great surprise at
Serena Ann, who looked up at her quite
pale with fright, still keeping fast hold
of the blue delaine.
Finally the young lady laughed, anil
then her face, which hnd appeared
rather haughty, looked very sweet.
"What Is the matter,' said she, "and
why are you holding my gown?"
"I thought you were Aunt Love,"
faltered Serena Ann, and the tears be
gan to come.
"Were you holding to your aunt's
gown ?"
"Yes, ma'cm."
The young lady laughed again. "My
name is Miss Pamely Soley," said she.
"Take hold of my hand, and don't cry,
and we'll go find your aunt.'
So Serena Ann curled her red mitten
hand timidly around the kid gloved
lingers of the young lady, and they
went bnck down Hanover street They
walked on both sides, they looked In
every shop, but all In vain. . .
The truth was that poor Aunt Love
had missed Serena Ann much sooner,
and had started off on a wrong track In
When she had discovered that her lit
tle niece was not behind her and looked
around in dismay and lost the color out
of her pretty pink cheeks, several sym
pathizing ladies had gathered around
her, and one had been quite sure she
had seen a little girl just like Serena
Ann in a lambswool tippet and brown
silk hood, run down a side street a little
way back. So Aunt Love went down
the side street, looking and inquiring of
She almost cried as she went along,
carrying her big green hnndbox, look
ing In vain for Serena Ann. She did
not know what to do, but finally It oc
curred to her that it was nearly the
time for her to meet Joshua Simmons
at the Sign of the Lamb, and that In all
probability somo benevolent person
would have taken Serena Ann thither.
So Aunt Love hastened to the Sign of
the Lamb, but It took her some time,
for she had wandered quite a distance.
But Miss . Pamela Soley was not wise
enough to think that the best plan was
to take Serena Ann to the Sign of the
Lamb at once, since they could not find
her Aunt Love on Hanover Btreeet. She
was quite a young lady, in spite of her
stately manners, and had not had much
experience in rescuing lost little girls.
She stood still -for Some time In Han
over street, holding Serena Ann's hand,
deliberating what to do. But finally a
bright thought struck Miss Pamela
Soley: "My brother Solomon is coming
for me In our chaise to tike irte home
to Jamaica Plain, where Ave live," said
she. "He Is going to meet me at the
cornet Just below here in about half an
hour. We will make your purchases
and then we will ask him what to do.
My brother Solomon always knows
what is best to do. He bolder than I,
and. has carried off many honors at
Harvard college. Don't cry, Serena
Ann. He'll be sure to find your aunt fop
you." -
Serena Ann was somewhat comforted,
for the young lady had a way at once
sweet and commanding, and she went
hand In hand with her and purchased
a beautiful jack-knife for Ebenezer.with
one ninepence, and a piece of white
nainsook for her mother's apron with
the other. Miss Pamela Soley herself
made two purchases a little rosewood
workbox, with scissors, and thimble,
and Ivory bobkin, all complete, and a
doll In a very handsome spangled dress
like a princess. The last purchase
She Almost Cried as She Went Along.
rather surprised Serena Ann, for she
had thought the young lady too old to
play with dolls, but she eyed it admir
ingly. She had never had a doll her
self, except one which Aunt Love made
for her out of a corncob. She sighed
when Miss Pamela Soley tucked the doll
with the rosewood workbox out of sight
in her great muff.
Mr. Solomon Soley was awaiting in
the chaise on the corner when his sister
uppeared with Serena Ann and told her
story. He was a handsome young man,
in a very fine mulberry colored clonk.
"We must take her to the Sign of the
Lamb at once," Mr. Solomon Soley said,
decidedly, and Miss Pamela and Serena
Ann got promptly Into the chaise and
they made haste to the Sign of the
Lamb. However, just before they
readied the tavern, Miss Pamela re
membered an errand which her mother
had begged her to do at Mr. Thomas
Whltcomb's store, and had her brother
leave her there, saying she would join
them in a few minutes.
But when Mr. Solomon Soley inquired
at the Sign of the Lamb, he found that
Joshua Simmons and Aunt Love had
driven away in their chaise some half
an hour before, and the hostler, -who
had been told, did not remember that
they had merely gone to look about'the
city a .little for the missing child, and
were then coming back to the tavern
to see if she had In the meantime been
brought there. However, another host
ler remembered that the lady carried a
large green bandbox and was crying.
"That was Aunt Love," said Serena
Ann, and she began to cry, too.
"Don't cry," said Mr. Solomon Soley.
"You shall be taken home safely to
night." ....
Then he turned the chaise around, and
drove back to the store, where his sister
had stopped, and before Serena Ann
fairly knew It they were on the road to
It had grown very cold, and the wind
blew. Mr. Solomon got out a great
plaid camlet cloak from under the chaise
seat, and put it on over his mulberry
colored one. Then presently, because
Serena Ann began to shiver a little,
tucked in between the two as she was,
he threw one end of the camlet cloak
around her, over her brown silk hood.
She was quite warm under that,
and also hidden from' sight. Nobody
meeting them would have dreamed that
there was a little girl in the chaise.
In the meantime, Aunt Love and Josh
ua Simmons returned to the Sign of the
Lamb, the hostler, who had forgotten
they were coming, told her that a gen
tleman In a chaise had been there with
the little girl and said he was going to
take her home to Bralntree. "Guess
you'll overtake 'em," said he. "Gentle
man was alone In the chaise with the
little girl, wore a mulberry-colored
Aunt Love fairly wept for Joy. "Oh!
Joshua, I am so thankful," she cried.
"I never could have told Sarah I'd lost
Serena Ann. And I haven't got my
shoes, but I don't care. I'll get married
In my old ones. Let's start right away,
so we'll overtake them."
Joshua Simmons started up the horse,
and the chaise rattled out the travern
yard and down the road toward Brain
tree. But their chnpter of accidents was not
finished, for as they were crossing Nep-

Aunt Love, pulled off her hood promptly.
"Put this on," said she, "Don't say a
word. If you don't you'll be laid up
with influenza, and the wedding will
have to be postponed, and that's a very
bad sign."
"Whatil you do?" asked Joshua Sim

For Joshua Simmons, who was natur-

never dreamed she was there.' More
over, they were looking for one gentle
man In the chaise with her, and here
was a young lady also. He wore a cam
let cloak, too, instead of a mulberry
cloak, as they had been told.
So the two chaises rattled on almost
abreast for qul'e a stretch on the turn

ahead a little, for his horse was fresher.
The reached Bralntree and when they
were within a hnlf mije of the Bagley
farmhouse, Joshua Simmons turned Into
another road, which was a little shorter
cut. Aunt Love was impatient to see If
Serena Ann had reached home. And so
It happened, since Solomon Soley's horse
was a little faster, that both chaises
turned into the Bagley yard at the same
time, and Serena returned from her
Christmas outing with something more
exciting than a nourishing of trumpets.
Serena Ann herself was so tired and
sleepy that she could not fairly realize
anything. It seemed to her like a
dream; the chorus of surprise and de
light, Mr. Solomon's and Miss Pamela's
coming nto the housed and getting
warm, and eating supper, and borrow

their homeward journey, and every
thing. She scarcely even grasped In Its

ories of her life, and had her first Christ

From the Chicago Post.
Edmund iBurke, orator 'statesman,
philosopher, writer, poet, was one of the
brightest of the galaxy of genius that
illuminated the latter part of the eigh
teenth century. The contemporary of
Goldsmith, Johnson, Pitt, Fox, Gibbon,
Walpole, Wilberforce, and others whose
names stand for some of the greatest
achievements in English history and
letters, his fame has grown with the
lapsing years. His works are read to
day almost as eagerly as they were
when his work on the French revolu
tion made Europe pause in the midst of
war, and trembling or tottering thrones
to admire his genius. Kings paid tri
bute to his learning nnd eloqunce, and
jealousy forgot her sneer when his name
was mentioned and praised in spite of
herself a rival. Not exactly a rival, be
cause in many things Edmund Burke
had no competitor. His "ltellections"
gave Europe a new thought, and the
nations listened to him in astonishment.
His essay on "The Sublime nnd Beau
tiful" Is as delicate a piece as the dis
section of a rose would be. With keen
est Insight he analyzes the feelings
which were supposed to be too subtle,
too much an efflorescence of the soul to
be grasped and classified and placed on
view. His political pamphlets were the
wonder of the time and were models of
statesmanship, although Intended most
ly to be what would be now campaign
documents of a partisan stripe.
Burke's ancestry was not notable.
His father was a prosperous lawyer in
Dublin. His great- grand-father was
mayor of the city of Limerick, and was
prominent in the troubled times of the
first Charles. There was a tradition
that the family came from the noble
Normans, De Burgh, who setied in Ire
land In the reign of Henry II, but this
theory is not sustained by proof. Ed
mund Burke was an Irishman, but he
seemed to have little or no sympathy
with the men who at various times
during his career attempted to obtain
Independence for their native land. He
was content to be an English states
man, but at any rate he wrote an Irish
name at the top of the list of the
world's greatest orators and thinkers.
