I I j j Teat-er The Shaker dinini? room is a pleasant, commodious apartment, nicely arranged and In perfect order. The long tables are filled with ladies and gentlemen ut the same time. During the meal a biuler reads the dally papers that all may understand the current events of the day, this beinjr the only time when they are all together or when reading would be oest adapted to the public ear. No children are admitted here that cannot be governed by moral uasion. There is a Uttla girl here, a speaker in one prominent scene at the Christmas entertainment, who has a little htstoryJ " While on a visit to Boston a few weeks; ai-o," one of the sisters relates, that child was brought to my notice. Her mother was dyintf. and as the uncontrolled ; forces of nature In the little one were running wild. I agreed to brlnsj hr hrini." The tnistlr.g mother gave the thud to the sister, and on Chrifdmas evening, as she appeared in her da Inly, llisnsy, white dress, lact veil, and lovely flowers, (her charncter costume.! she looked lik-s a fairy queen ami played her part like a trained pui.il. And so with all of the children: lliev are tenderly, lovingly cared for. and their hiippy faces are the mirrors which tell of the good home they hav nnd tho kind frWr.da that surround them.
