"Then I don'c see that we hare gained anything." "Haven't we? Why not? Aren't we doing it openly? Think of the moral uplift!" ilrs. Whittler shook her head. -1 don'c agree Trith you." she said. "I rhi^y it would be much better for us to select ourselves the presents we want. If you like, you can come with me while I get mine." "Xonsense! · That won't do at alL It is absolutely necessary lor us to carry out the element, of surprise. There is some sneaking, contemptible trait in human nature which makes us want, once a year, to surprise others. That is at the basis of ail Christmas giving. It's a kind of impulsive, Irresponsible attitude which impels us to buy something that we delude ourselves into believing^ the recipient: Is crazy for; while aH the time we ought to know that It's probably the last thing on earth he or she .wants. Would you rob us both of this Sendish pleasure? Never! The only thing to do is to be natural- I therefore announce to you. that T. am going to surprise you with a present; and you must promise to do "the same with me." . .Mrs. "Whlttler considered. "Well/' she said at last, "T suppose that is really the best thing for us to do, and I here. Taj agree to do it." When Christmas eve caine, therefore--the time when, the Whittlers were accustoraed to "spring" their annual surprises-each of them bore that perfectly confident ana Identically joyful air which usually preceded the presentation of something we think the other person pag been longing for. Whittler advanced with a sm2e. "My dear," he said, "I have the surprise of a lifetime for you." "Oh, do tell me!" said Ilrs. Whirtler, with a hypocritical air of gaiety and anticipation, although inwardly she shrank from the ordeaL 'T know It Is something th3£ I want!" ·"-"What do you suppose It is?" her husband cheerfully Inqulred- -"HaTen't the least idea." : "Well--It is--It is--guess!" .- "On, I couldn't! Tell me, quick!" "Well, It's absolutely nothing. Now, isn't that a surprise?" Mrs. Whittler burst into tears. " "You horrid thing'" she exclalraed. "I shall never forgive yen!" "But--" "Don't you know that It Isn't the" -value of the thing. I might not have liked it; but the thought that yon had tried to please me would have been everything. I dida't do that to yoa!" Whittler, beside himself with sudden remorse, sprang to her side. "I was only joTdag," he exclaimed "breathlessly. "Bonest, I was only jok- Ink. What have you scot for me?"' She drew from a neighboring closet a dressing-sack, over which Whittler j went fcito raptures, all the time feeling like a criminal. Then, with a solemn air, he drew from his pocket a twenty- dollar bili. "If yoa doa't like It;'.' he said, "you can exchange it for something else." 7 . Mrs. Whittle- shook her fcead- "You didn't Intend to give It lo ine, and I'm not going to take It now," she said. "It was an aiterthocght," She folded It rap and put it back Into his waistcoat pocket. * 'Til forgive you this time," she sinlled; "but remember, my dear, that. It is very much better to go on year after year giving each other things that we don't want than to atteiapt to break up an old "habit; which, after all, foolish as it seems, is founded upon a genuine human sentiment."'
