A group of garmins were hanging about an old grey-haired woman, shabbily dressed, who carried a large paokago under hor arm. The writer of the skotch followed, thinking to say something at the tight momont. Tha boys were jeering aud the woman was begging to be lot alone. By-and-bye she sat down on a dooistep. Then the young araos gatuorea tmcKiy aooui nor. ' Give us a song, old woman !' *' If you'll dance us a jig, we'll let you ofi !' ' Openthe bundle audlet's see what you've got !''

Although evidenced in a different manner may be, the general call to happiness, the bustle, of '-'the spirits, and the stir of the affections, prevails at this season now, as ever since when the '-Light of the world ' appeared. . , Christmas is indeed still the felicitous season of re generated and reanimated feelings, and when the general flame of charity (revised version if you like — love) is. kindled in the heart, and the happiness of making others happy is most thought of. And Christmas is pre-eminently the children's day iii all christian lands. 'And it is a noteworthy fact that outside of Christendom the happiness of children is' but little cared for. * The means to do so ai;e within the reach of most, by the aid of our \ storekeepers and others. The stores of Moss Yale this year are just as full ofrgood things, se...
