months lusty fol have had a chance to test their lungs and they aro making the most of their opportunity A rollicking chorus catches tho fancy of all the men in one corridor and everyone helps to sing it In another there rises above the dm a clear tenor voice and soon all other voices are hushed that that ono voice may be heard It echoes through the corridor like tho sweetest saddest notes of a caged bird Only perhaps ono of tho melodramatic sentimental ballads of the day but novor was itsung with more complete for there aro tears on tho cheeks of hardened criminals as they press close to the bars of their cell doors and strain thnlr ears that they may miss nothing o the faintest notes At tho closo there is ji roar of approval and ad miring comments aro shouted out from ovory cell Tho singer responds with perhaps a similar ballad or it may be a Moody and Sankey hymn which SJUKU larly enough never fails to win the sym pathy of an audience of caged convicts when that is well sung by one of their own number And so the chatter and tho shouting and the singing goes on unchecked un til 0 oclock at night Christmas in Sing Sing prison is at an end and tho noxt morning the dreary

place was rather a gay old bird ley was well known at the race tho club houses and the numerous places where his masters hansom was seen driving up One day his master went to the When they cot gate a and tho master entered Char ley was following for tho hansom had been sent home as the gontlcmau was going back to town with friends Charley waited outside the gate for a tiine the over the people went homo and nobody was left but a few bobbies and three or four hansoms A WAY OF GKTTIXG JJIpCRE They up to Chailoy but lie refused lie walked along and looked at every hansom thebest in sealed

lovely white shirt front over saw came to pay me and my Chum a visit and I can assure that if expressed the slightest desire to eat either of us he might have done it As it was drink cakes to eat and three rapturously women Iam including myself in this party to adore him This is a true story Did for a secondhand lady to come to you I dont mean that shewas a secondhand lady exactly but a lady who deals clothes Well she sent me a card and under neath her name strongly suggestive of Judea was written and underlined From Sho arrived before I was up and while she was waiting I grew so economical I only took one lump of sugar in my coffee Then when she came in and saw the hugc pile of clothes them things that I be awaitingher and theproud air on my face shelooked at are and rather contemptuously that sho didnt think much of them l never saw anybody who had such a snif ty way1 in mylife A Felix tossed by scorn an eveninggown that was as as lookedat ence while she lumped with an air of Then she said that she would for the and I TOLD HEB TO GO HOME rf She said a great manyladies real ladies were sell as many clothes aa that for of a pair of gloves Then I risked my reputation as a reallady and standing the ma jestyofan uncurled a crimson Japanese drossingrgown a pair of white Turkish a heart on my I told that old woman to go and t got Iwould get a District and saidto myself Bab yon are

madeit Tor life that a blonde baby christened Julia would turn dark and grow tall and dignifiedlooking and coaldni help itThat Florence was certain to be blonde and to have nii in clination to play dreamy music as Char lotte was to be an energetic house keeper that Fanny conldnt help being frivolous and flirty and that Katherinc with all her pretty diminutives always fall in love with es pecially men people that Maud and Cora the demniLion without any volition on their part and that Ida and Blanche woro pretty cer tain to gfi 1 there in virno That Mabel wa be a littlo frigid and Mar caret had a weakness for being blonde temper That Emily had a good strong will of her own and was apt to have gray eyes and thai Evelyn well there bo agon oral feeling that Evelyn was inclined to be a bit ofa liar Everybodys mother seemed to bo named Mary and every worn an at so me time or another scomea to have a friend who was very loyal named either Francis Edith or Helen That Gladys was a pretty name for a girl as Ions as she was just a girl but that it lacked dignity whon she became a woman That Louise hadthin lips was apt to be very decided in her views and that Josephine was wheedling All the diminutives of Mary wore approved of and Dorothy was given a high place ofhonor as being aristocratic Some thing was said about Barbara and one woman without much sense saul she thought it was like a knife that cut but another ono great deal of sense said that a knife was as apt to defend you as to cut you This iswhat three women said about womens names MEN AS SCANDALMONGERS Who does tho most gossiping in this world men or women Well there I havent used the right word Gossip pure and harmless and really means chatting about gowns and be longings people and things kindly if a frivolous way But who talks the most scandal Men my men Its my private opinion than if any wicked scandal were folded up to the place from which it emanated any wicked malicious rumor it would be found that a manwas at tho bottom ot it A man who was dislikedby the woman against whom he talked Women say abominable littlo things just as small dogs snap at you and think they aro doing no end of harm but men dont hesitate to toll great big tarididdles that are like the bites of bulldogs go in deep and leave A WOMANS MOTTO FOR Most of ushear unpleasant things of ourselves our friends are courteous enough to let us know of the un kind word and us being what tho world calls shed bitter tears tears that hurt tho heart over the yelping of mongrel dogs and then we get up and realize that it would be a great deal wiser if wo could be great enough to scorn these things But you see wo cant wo are women and word hurts much more many times than docs tho unkind deed In that wise book there is one sentence that I wish men would have written framed and hung on their walls is this Man makinga woman shed tears for every tear she sheds God counts up aeciunst THE SEASONTO ETC RICH But there whats tho use of thinking of these unpleasant tilings They do exist but so do toads and no ondof1 ugly things while the shops are full of beautiful vanities while tho Christmas feeling is in the air whilo tho sun is shining and tihero are lots of prettywomen on the street thorn is no earthlyuse in bother ingabout cads who call themselves men andwomen who aro women only as f arias thoir sexiscon cecnedand who aro toads at heart This istho only time of year when T Just fancy being able to buy all gifts you want Just fancybeing able to give everyhuman being that yon knowor dont that iyon like or dont like something for Christmas day For my own part I wonJd bank rupt fortho rest off the year However there are of things that you and I can give whether there is gold purse to buy GTFTS WITHOUT MONEY There are some things that money will not buy One of them is a Christmas greeting with a kiss of love it sweeter One of them is a deal of affection and consideration Onbof them is a memory of somebody afar memory said either in a prayer or thought out whenthe Christmas ringing One of them is a new belief in human belief that the world is after all not as black as it is painted and that love andhope may go hand in hand and joy will be the Oneof thorn is a putting down of all the hard unkind blotting out of the disagreeables and an inten tiori to see only the beautiful things Ono of this is the best of all is to resolve when your Christmas hymn to be good andland and lovingto all thelittle babies in this all the and then in that greatfuture ypuwillHnd that as ye havo done It
