I \ I Christ Child A ROUGH hut crouching along upon A the hill in the forest, half hidden in the thicket of naked boughs. Before . it, a hemlock tree, almost black in the Btfij iJj-tjt. nil in the early dawn and pointing with hundreds of frozen fjngers to the sombre earth. Presently the one door of the hut opens slowly, and an old 'man comes forth clothed in dingy rags. Barely glancing at the sky and shivering with cold, he totters down the slope of the hill, an<j bending, gathers one by one the dry sticks that lie about his feet. • No one witnessing the scene would suppose that holiday thoughts could ever reach the spot, or that before many hours the merry Christmas bells would startle the echoes from their hiding places around the dismal abode. There is no glow of expectation upon the old man's face as, mechanically, his jagged armful is borne into the hut and laid upon the rough hearthstone, and when, afterward, a steam of smoke issued from a long rusty pipe, projecting from t...

Hither the wound was smarting sorely, or Old Pop was stupefied by his fall, for lie made no resistance. Softly and tenderly, as snow- flakes, fell the touch of Elsie's hands upon that bowed head. "It is not much," she said, when at last the blood was all carefully wash- ed away ; "you should hold cold water to the bump—that's what mother always does for me; and now, if 1 only had a cobweb!" This humble aspiration was easily met in the rickety old hut. almost by the reaching of her hand, for spiders had woven there un- indebted for '."any a day, The blood ,v?c tnoi? stanched to Elsie's ful 1 content.

Elsie clung to Old Pop's hand. "Come with us," she urged; "do come; we cannot go and leave you here alone on these cold ljjlls." "But I am not alone, any more, my child," said the old man, gently stroking Elsie's curls as He spoke. "Oh, I am so glad. I shall love the dear •Christ-child more than ever now!" cried Elsie. "I knew He would come to you on Christmas eve. But you won't surely stay here by your- self now that everybody will love you?" "Everybody, child?" "Yes, everybody? why not? But why do you always call me 'child'? My name is Elsie." The hermit gave a sjiarp cry, and would have fallen had not the schoolmaste...
