OUR BEST WISHES
MOJT PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.
There will be a girl's and boy's golf tourna
ment in the near future, with prizes for the best
A MERRY CHRISTMAS.
Little Betty was sitting on the step of a tene
ment house. Her little face was rather per
plexed and worried; at laBt bhe said out loud to
herself , as was her habit : "I just can't see why
it is so, that we poor chileren as work day and
night and don't get no Christmas neither, the
rich children as never work get Christmas."
She sighed bitterly, turned and went in doors.
Betty was an orphan, and she supported herself
and a younger sister. She did not want much,
but how she did want Christmas. -Finally she
got up and went out to her work. All of a sud
den something bright flashed at her feet, she
bent down and picked it up. Oh joy! It was
a ten dollar gold piece. Some one spoke to her:
'Little girl have you Been a ten dollar gold piece
lying around here?" All her hopes vanished.
She looked up into a good looking, kind young
man's face. "Yes, please sir, it was fox my
Christmas, please tir." He looked at the thin
face turned up to him, and said : "Well, 1 guess
I won't need it, you can have it," and putting it
in her hand he turned away and was goue. So
Betty had a Christmas.
A Tramp went up to a cottage door and
knocked, a woman answered it: "What do you
want?" she said. The tramp replied, Please
mum, I've lost my leg." "Well, I ain't got it,"
snapped the woman, and she slammed the door.
When I was little I used to play,
Down in the grove where the violets lay,
The little brook came running round
Right into the violet's ground.
The violets woke up with fright,
And thought it was not right,
For the brook to come at night.
The man was bent,
He had no (s)cent,
Where'er he went,
He paid no rent,
He lived in a tent,
With a little vent.
But Christmas came ;
He played in the game,
With a horrid name,
And evil fame,
Was he to blame?
lie won the same.
Now he has wealth
And rugged health;
He's married an elf,
As rich as himself ;
His Christmas shelf
Just groans with pelf.

THE WAR OF THE KINGDOMS NORTH
Far away at the North Pole lives the Snow
King and all his army. Then toward the South
lives the beautiful Queen of the Flowers. One
day in the winter Queen Flora called all her
fairies together and proposed to have a war
against the Snow King, but some of the fairies
said: "Why not send Prince Sun and let him
try to melt all the snow men of King Snow." I
will tell you why they wished to have war.
The fairies did not like to fight, but to defend
their country they must, for the Snow King kills
all the flowers and buds.
Prince Sun started out with a warm heart, and
all the fairies felt sorry. The farther he went
the colder it grew. At last he reached the castle
of the Snow King, it was all of ice and cold
winds moaned around it. A snow man stood
scntinal at the door, and when he looked at the
Sun's kind, warm face it thawed him out.

The storm was raging Hercely. A great com
motion reigned on the little pier where the
lis her men were In the habit of landing. What
was it? Why were all eyes strained in the di
rection of the wild tossing sea? Presently a
voice cried: "There is no doubt at all it is a
man on a raft, he is waving frantically, waving
something white." "How awful!" screamed a
littlegirl. "Is nobody going to help this poor
man?" An old sailor shrugged his shoulders
and muttered: "There is nothing to be done,
mademoiselle, it is hard luck to be sure, but we
cannot attempt to rescue him in a storm like
this. No one would return."
And all the time the man on the raft, now
high on the crest of the waves, now almost dis
appearing from view in their trough, continued
to gesticulate wildly.
