CARD OF THANKS

for the sympathy and kindness

MARY and John had quar

mas, too. The Christmas
candy had burned, and then, in the
excitement, each had blamed the
other, making cruel retorts, until
Mary fled to her bedroom in tears
and John stalked off in the snowy
The Christmas candle oeamed a
welcome from the window as John
started around the block ag&in. He
was cold, and sorry, but he mustn't
go in too soon.
The tree, the holly, their little
girl asleep in her crib and dream
ing of Santa Claus—all were a mock
ery. Mary went into the living room
and snapped on the radio, looking
for a jazz band and forgetfulness.
Instead there came the strains of
"Silent Night"—"peace on earth,
good will to men," —"God bless us,
every one"—"may nothing you dis
may." Wasn't there anything on ex
cept Christmas programs? A click
brought back the silence.
She opened the front door. Next
time she would ask John to come
in. Tell him she was sorry. Now
that she stopped to think, she knew
that he was sorry, too. Why let a
few excited words that neither of
them meant spoil their Christmas?
But John did not come. It was
too cold to stand at the door any
longer, but she sat at the window,
with the curtain drawn aside, watch
ing for him. An hour went by.
When at last she saw him com
ing the relief almost choked her. He
was striding rapidly, carrying some
thing in his arms. She opened the
door for him and he handed his
burden to her.
"Here. Mary, hold him. Careful,
now. His leg's hurt. I'll get a box
and we'll fix a bed."
Mary looked down at the warm
bundle. It was a furry puppy. One
leg was hi-splints. The puppy whim
pered a little and licked her hand.
"But, John, where did you get
"Accident Over on Linden. Fell
out of a passing car. I took him to
a vet and had him fixed up. Thought
he'd make a cute pet for Alice—"
He stopped his work and straight
ened up. "I'm awfully sorry, Mary.
I was a tool/'
"It was my fault, John." Their
eyes met in perfect understanding.
How silly to quarreL The silence
was a more impressive reconcilia
tion than words. Mary broke it
nervously, for fear she would cry
again. "There are some clean rags
in that drawer. And we ought to
get him something to eat. He can
have this old bowl for his dish." She
worked with one hand, cuddling the
puppy. "Won't Alice be surprised?
And what shall we name him?"
"Ought to have some connection
with, Christmas eve, don't you
think? How about Scrooge, or Mar
"Good King Wenceslaus£"
"Such names for a poor innocent
puppy! Maybe we had better see
what Alice wants to call him in the
morning." She put the puppy down
with a saucer of warm milk. John
came and put his arm around her,
and they stood close together watch
ing their pet lap greedily.
"We ought to call him Peacemak
er, honey," said John. "If it hadn't
been for him, I might have still
been out there in the snow."
"Oh, John!" She held him close.
"Weren't we silly? Iwas so worried
wheh you didn't come. If anything
had happened to you I could never
have forgiven myself."
"Felt pretty rotten myself. Not
my idea of the best way to spend
"Of course! I forgot! We have
so much left to do! The tree, and
Alice's doll must be unpacked, and
her stocking filled. What time is

He nodded, and put his watch on
the table. \ "Here, pooch," he said,
"it's bedtime for you." He lifted
the puppy into its bed, and turned
back to his wife. "And as for you,
milady," he said, "in about ten sec
onds I want a kiss for Christmas,
and then we're going to pitch in to
gether and clean uo this mess, and
trim the tree, and maybe even
chance another batch of candy. OK?
Then, it's time, darling, to say Mer
ry, Merry Christmas."
