merrily, and few were the footsteps
that passed over tho f now outsido.
As tho clock in the tower chimed
four, old Johnnn Marin entered tho
dimness of the chnrch upon tho h.U,
where soft red lights shone like far
away stars beforo the altar. There were
n few other dark figures already there,
kneeling to whisper a prayer at an old
o:.ken prie-dien. But they looked up
as the old man came forward, and
c,athere;l together more closely. He
would say the evening litany.pf rhaps,
and they wuld join in the solemnly
sweet responses, breathing in each
beert the names of their clearly loved
one?,and committing them to hcavon'a
eafe keeping for the night.
And old Julian n Marin, as they had
espeoted, kneeling in the toft halo
that the lights made, began tho old,
old words that they knew so well, and
that they followed to earnestly, while
the wind wailed ontsid over the snow
en the steep white road. And Amalie and

thero would bo a great eervice, wh. n
the priest would pray nnd preach, nnd
they would nil lifdec, oh! so intently.
Hut now there was only tho quiet
ness of Iho little church, with its scent
of tho freshly-cut boughs, nnd the
quavering, monotonous voice of
Johann Maria repeating the old
litany, as ho had repeated it so many
times beforo in tho samo place cud in
tho sarao accents.
Xhcro was another girl ia the
corner, kneeling nt her piie dieu, and
whispering tho words of tho sweet old
petitions with whito lips and an aching
heart. Clirittmas brought only sor
row for her, he said to herself. Ihcro
was no gladness for her to expect, no
loving voico to gtvo her the Christina?
greeting, no tender lips to press her
own iu that lovo bweeter than others,
even nt tho 6cason of universal love.
No, nil was dark nnd dreary dreary
as the shadows that fell upon tho
whito snow ; and while tho others ro-
I joieed nud ltukod forward to keeping
tho festival her heart was heavy and
her thoughts roamed back, pitilessly,
painfully, to a bygouo day a day
that was marked with tho thadow of
death. .-. .'
It was Christmas tiir.o again, nnd
tho priest, had preached nnd prayed,
and given tho old bcnutiful benedio
tion, that floated out liko a messago
from Heaven over the kneeling peoplo
over her lever and herself.
Ah ! her lover !

she had been to happy, eo very very

and then to her heart, wit! the throb

Cut ho had begged her to forgetto
forget nil the paiu of parting for that

sweetheart," he had said, looking into
her eyes with his own, ah I filled with
so muoh lovo and tenderness.
And she had obeyed him, as she
always would obey the voice that was
mose to her than life itself, and they
had been happy perfectly, passion
ately happy in their great, unfath

they walked home in tho evening,

fcfo she had spoken, as they went
down the river-bordered rond together,
hand in hand, with tho evening wind
moaning among tho pines, nnd tho
Christmas chimes ringing out from the
tower in the distance. And he had
btooped nud kissed her, kissed her

Even now, perhaps, Amalie was say
ing, "Aeh ! the poor Margaretta ! Is
it not two Christmas festivals siato
her lover elicd in tho war?" And the
others would look grave for a moment
and sigh a soft "Yes." Ah, it was
true. Two long, dim years had passed
away einco tue tk'rmi.slies on tue
frontier land, whero, amid the dry
heather aad the deal bracken, they
had told hor that her lover had died.
But that was all. They knew not
whero his body had beon rested ; thoy
knew not whether ho hal suflferod
ngony or had parted with his bravo
soul in tho heat of the battle. All wa:j

As she went down tho hill road on
that Christmas Eve alone some one
was waiting under tho shadow of tho
bending pine trees. Some one camo
forward to meet her with a quick, glad
cry of joy and heart's delight. Was
it a dream ns the thoughts in tho
chnrch yonder had been a dream of
Christmas, nnd of her love, her own,
her life's love, but lost to her lost?
Nay, for voico spoke to her, and
dreams havo co voices, they are silent
and sad ; and this was a living, throb
bing voice, fuli of passion and ten
derness. "Heart's beloved! Sweet one!" he
was calling her all the old dear names
that th-2 remembered so well ; and his
kisses were burning onoe again on her
lips nnd brow, and his eyes wero tell
ing her all tho lovo his loyal heart
bore for her. Ho had come back to
her, to his Margaretta, back to his
life's lovo, from tho very gates of
Aud, clasped to his breast, in the
hush of tho evening, with her tired
head resting ou his heart, they heard
tho bells ring out for the eve of tho
festival the festival of Perfect Love.
By-niid-by he told her the story of
his wardering?, of bis supposed death,
of his captivity and escape, and she
listcnei'l, with her hands still locked
in his and with her glad eyes fastened
on his face.
And at the service time they returned
thanks ia tho brightly lighted chnrch
on the bill, gay with fco'iy nnd ever
green and th6 morrow's high holy day.
Aud whoa the music ceased aud th,
others w;ni softly away, together thry
t-ti!l knelt oa, while each loving heart
breathed its tender petition nnd whis
pered its thanks for the others' happi
ness. For tho "Auf wiedersehen"
had been spoken iu truth, nud they
fhall keep Christmas together. Tho
Clnitm.is of ChilJlioail Days,
'My first thought of Christmas,"
says Lillio Devereux Giake, "is of tho
great playroom at my grandmother's,
where we children gathered for our
evening fro'.hs; of tho fun wo had in
tho wnvinth and light, while sleet
struck its ioy finger3 across the win
dows or the hoar frost covered the
glass with fantastic lines oi beauty ; of
tho faces of thoso gathered there, eo
young then, that are growing old now
or have faded from this world forever.
Then thero come:i a wider vision of the
Christmas of the world, of tho joy
bel! ringing iu many lands for the
feast cf love and good will, of the
hearts made happy by tho gifts, the
kindliues?, the good cheer that brings
liht to the hnmulcst home, so that
there is hardly nny being so forlorn
that soiaa ray of Lrightue69 does not
rei:h him. Thcu yet again, and
deeper, is the reflection of what the
festival mean?. It is the celebration
of tho eternal rairaola of maternity,
tho wonder of birth into the activities
of this world, that has been in all ages
and by nil peoples observed at tomo
period as an occasion for gladness ; the
welcome those already here give the
new born sonl to the brief, passionate
years of human happiness and human
despair that wo call life." . i

The first step in the wcrk of trim

Superstitious ol Christ ui tt.
The superstitions of Christmas are
more numerous even than the observ
ances which owe their origin to heath
enish rites. Among certain European
peasants the belief still prevails that
oa Christmas morning oxen always
spend a portion of tho time on their
knees. This they do, according to tbo
peasants, in imitation of the ox and
the ass which, a legend states, wero
prerent at the ruanger and knelt wheu
Christ was torn.
Iu certain counties of England tho
idea prevails that sheep walk iu pro
cession on Christmas Eve, in com
memoration of tho glad tidings first
announced to shepherds. Pees are al
so said to sing ia their hives cn the
night beforo Christmas, and bread
baked at that time never becomes
mouldy at least so once thought
many English housewives.
