"KATCH KELLY." , AND "WHEELY WINKS." MODERN CHRISTMAS GAMES. It may be that the seasons are chang ing; that lite ig losing much ol it.s leisurely comfort, and that our delight | In old things, "old customs, and old fes tivals Is not so keen as It used to be (says the "Westminster Gazette"). But, for all that, Christmas is Christmas [ a fairly obvious statement of fact, but I one which, nevertheless, seems to bo essential to any conversation at all at this period of the year. Christmas, to the vast majority o£ us, means many things. To the Vicar of Burton Woods, for instance, who speaks very plainly about it in his parish magazine, It means "a festival of blood, a festival of cruelty . . . the surfeit of many meals, followed by discomfort, sickness, beclouded intellect, and spirit^ j ual ennui;" but this may be a view jaundiced by the memory of past Christmases. To most o£ the .world It means merriment, boisterous fun, noise, practical jokes, and what are described in the price-lists...

Her heart ached, her head ached, for there was nothing save bread and butter and po tatoes in the house, and the children were talking- of the joys of the morrow and what they might find in their stock ings. The pain of it was intolerable. She had one-and-fourpenee left, and when the children were in bed she stole out in a reckless mood. She spent all she had to the last farthing, and with bitter tears loaded the stockings that had been trustfully hung up with an orange and apple and a few sweets each.
