J blouses for growing Giris.

A Little Bow tie is worn with it. B i i f i a a a i but it i a a i i j a i j i he boy s lantern glowed like a will of the Wisp As he came Down the dark Mountain path to the Little Church. Soon other lanterns joined his and the thought of the sheep brought uneasiness. Up there on the Mountain his flock Lay waiting for him to come and open to them the shelter 1 of their shed but the temptation to 1 go a pleasuring had been great and Vogue of filet. Rilet is destined to be the favorite where laces Are concerned and will appear on every garment in. Sonje Fot or or rotifer during the coining Winter. For evening dress the Long tunic of filet net Cut into Sharp Points Back and front and weighted with tassels is one of the most fashionable accessories. Draping for blouses. Many handsome blouses of soft silk Are draped with rare old ficus. A a tunning one of gorgeous length Over a Nlle Green Liberty Satin Blouse arranged so that it Falls Down Over the shoulders and tops of the sleeves 1� held at the Waist line by the Girdle under Ivsich it Pastew the a ends reach nearly to the hem of the skirt. Ono of the recent fancies is to Dye the lace Scarf to match the Blouse with which it is to be worn. These Are also frequently seen worn Over Fine White lace or lingerie blouses. It is these Little accessories that make the House blouses a attractive. Fotr an informal afternoon Tea there is nothing that quite equals a pretty Little separate Blouse.

Choosing a hat. When it comes to the. Choice of a hat do not get a Small Toque if the features Are Large particularly the nose. The tendency with too Small a hat will be to exaggerate the size of this feature. Be equally careful should the features be Small not to choose too heavy looking a hat and Thea no matter How tall you Are. Now and then the flickering lights j the smile of the Pink cheeked girl the played on the Bright dress of a girl or the eager face of a child but for the most part the shadowy figures gave no hint of race or degree until at last the Little crowd gathered Inlo a poorly lighted Robin ? flare of an Oil lamp showed a Motley gathering of country people. As the boy slouched toward a seat a girl stopped him. She wore a pint knitted Hood and her Cheeks rivalled the color of her head covering. A merry Chris she said and gave him a coquettish glance from her Bright eyes As he returned her greeting. The boy walked by her Side a Little awkwardly but unafraid. He was 19, and he lived on the Hills. It was the time for love and the girl was has. Chosen mate a fur the Fet Tiv a a tip a they Quot Woulff go up the dark path together and to would kiss her at the door of her father s Cabin and that would be their betrothal. They Aat together on the front Bench and read from the same hymn Book. The boy Sang softly. He would not let out Hla voice in the Little room it was Only on the Mountain top that the deep tones rang like a Beli As he chanted a wild song to his sheep. Music the lights the companionship had lured him from the lonely watch under the stars. Then the girl whispered to him and he forgot care until a Little a later an outer door opened and a Man stepped in his shoulders White with glistening flakes. Quot its snowing said the boat the girl nodded but kept her eyes on the stage where four Small girls recited a Christmas poem in unison. Again the boys thoughts flew to the Mountain where the Snow was blowing and Curling and Drifting against a closed door and where the patient flock nose to nose and body to body for warmth pleated for the Shepherd who did not come. At last he moved restlessly. Quot in be got to Ger life Siirid. A a a no you Hainet a her voice pleaded. Quot its a fearful storm a a he whispered. A a hear the wind an the sheep Are a they Hainet a going to Hurt a she Back a an you got to go Home with a Wyo air Papas Here a he said. A if you Don t stay Quot and now she threatened query loudly a if you Don t stay. Ill go Home with the boy looked at her at her Ros Iio to find my sheep Quot he said and 1�� it her lie found them in a Dost Gray Bunch against the shed. The wind howled around Ihetu and the Snow piled Over them and those that were nearest the it Joor stumbled in Stilly when 1 he boy unlocked it. Inside was a rude fireplace and Wood was piled beside it. The boy built a great fire and the flock retreating before the Blaze Lay Down on the trodden Straw with soft sounds of Content. Then the boy brought in two weak Mem dose to Tlle flames and wait died them anxiously until they revived mud staggered Back to their Fellows. For a Jong time after that the boy sat in front of the lire and thought of the girl. She would go Home with his rival and they would part at the door the boy s face flushed and his hand clenched As he thought of the parting. A would she he Rose and went to the door and Flung it open. Outside the stars were blotted out. The wind raged and the whirled. He Felt As if Between him and the girl there was the Barrier of an unknown world. He had done ins duty and she had not understood. He went in and Laid Down in front of the fire with his great coat drawn Over him. A let her go. Let her Sang the roaring flame Quot let her go let her go Quot raged the the wind outside. Then came he soft Consolation from within Quot you cared for the sheep you cared for the and so he fell asleep and was comforted hut his Cheeks were wet. In the morning he broke a path Down the Mountain. The Sun shone and the sky was a flue and the world sparkled after the storm. When he reached a certain Clearing he stopped and looked Over the glistening expanse toward the girl s House. Suddenly his Eye was caught by a Flash of Pink. Through that White White world the girl was coming to meet him As she came up. He put out both hands and took her smaller ones in his. A i had to he said. The girl Felt a new dignity in his manner. She blushed and trembled then her lips quivered. A i went Home with Pap a she sobbed her Cheek against his coat. A a in a glad you did t go Home with Jed a he said simply a a and that you knew just How i was a feeling she did not know would never know what that night had meant to him for it is not Given to such women to touch the d6faths of a Many a soul experience but she knew love and so he missed nothing As in the stillness of the perfect Christmas morning she raised her Radiant file to his.

He always in close it a Christ s birthday. Its Date first set As december 25 by hippolytus. In 225 hippolytus a theologian an-nountd�?Ttli5t As a result on careful research he had determined that a Jesus was born on a wednesday on the Twenty fifth of he is regarded As the original authority for celebrating Christmas Oij that Date. A later theologian declared a Rob 28 As the Date of Christ a birth. The belief founded on jewish traditions that the world was created at the period of the Vernal Equinox or about March 25, was taken by both writers As a starting Point upon which to base their calculations. They held that tills would naturally be the period of the creation of the new order of things springing from the incarnation. Just when the Celebration of Christmas As a religious festival began is not known or at least has not been definitely established. The Isid Oxian decre tals assert that the festival was established by Teles photos during the second Century but this authority has Long been discredited. Other authorities More highly regarded state that the festival of the nativity was instituted at Antioch in 3.7.3. Some of the christians of the Early Ages held their Christmas Celebration in april others in May and still others in june. It was not thought i Kely that the shepherds would have Ren watching their flocks by night in december even in India which is Apt to experience cold and Rainy weather at that season. Still it is the spirit of the a time and not the Day itself that is observed with such rejoicing and the Christmas Celebration serves As a pleasant break in the Monotony of Winter hippolytus selected the actual birth of Christ As the beginning of a new Era while other theologians have placed the beginning at the time of the annunciation by he Angels
