The recognized order ol things was reversed, hvery child in the Sunday school gave, instead oi received gift, anil every child was jtisf thai much happier. "When we ha'c a Christmas tree, and every child is given some slight present, nine-tenths of them arc said oie of the ofliceis oi the Sunday school this morning, "but when the children know that they are giving somellimg that will make someone else happy, thcv pll rejoice together, and I ncviir saw a happier lot of children in my lite than those at Knox church last night." Kach class gave something practic- al. One class oi girls contributed a live chicken each, and some gave flour, sugar, potatoes, jellies, canned fruits, oatmeal, and other supplies. The contributions were heaped up on the platform, and at the close ol the entertainment, there was a continual stream of young humanity from the church to the Nursing Mission, where the goods were taken for distribution. Although the latter were swamped with good things to eat, there was a dray load' left o'er. Instead of charg- ing admission, each individual who entered 'the church was expected to give a potato, an or an apple. As a result, there was over a barrel ,of each at the door, when everyone had passed within. The plans and management were en- tirely in the hands of the Uig Sisters and Dig Brothers classes ol the Sun- day school. Mr. J. D. Higintotbam, Superintendent, was called upon to preside at the last minute, and, none of the teachers or officers participat- ed.
