Yes, it had been very simple. But difficult, after all. "I am far too soft-hearted for my own good," Nettie thought, as she went back to her sofa and rang for tea and cinnamon toast to console her.

And as he said, all the old families had a well black sheep and besides, it would be all very quiet, and strictly private. . . Still, it was days before she got around to telling Christie. Nor was it easy. The child was so stupid about It. Couldn't seem to understand. Had to be told it over and over. "Dad wasn't my father, and Mimi wasn't my mother! Why you must be wrong.

Most of us have little reason to be sad in the midst of such universal good feeling but there are some to whom Christmas cheer is but an empty word. Let us make it our business, for just one day, nt least, to share our blessings with those who have not been quite so fortunate. In larger cities there are organizations galore to undertake the hard work of seeking out and ministering unto the boys and girls and grown-ups, too, for whom the fates have in store no happy moments. Here it is the job of the individual in a measure, to sub siitute for Santa Claus and make concrete some of the concern voiced for all those not otherwise able to enjoy a real Christmas. We know, from past experience, that people will look around them and hasten to express in kindness the Christian spirit that abounds on the day of days for their faith.
