a CHRISTMAS LEGEND. (Translated From, the French by H.

No white cottages and green vineyards adorned the hillside. Only a shepherd's hut was to be seen. Here lived Eudes, his wife and two children. One cold, stormy Christmas night, as Eudes was plodding homeward after sheltering his flock, he was a prey to the most melancholy reflections. He thought of his hard lot, his poverty, and felt that the future held nothing in store for him. As he neartSd his home the north wind redoubled its fury, and he heard the chimes of the nearest church ringing out through the frosty air. "Christmas chimes!" he thought. "Christmas 1s for happy and rich peo- ;ple, not for poor shepherds like me." His dark humor did not escape the notice of his wife when he entered his lowly hut. She sent the children to amuse him, and soon...
