It ia not true, however, for Christmas come* twice a y«.<r. ThoM of us who reckon by the Gregorian calendar celebrate Dec. 26. ThoHo who still adhere to the Julian calendar observe Jan. 7. Russia Is the only great nation which still holds out fur the Julian calendar. The Greek Catholic church sticks to the time nicnnurement adopted by Julius Caesar forty .six years before the birth of Cbrlrtt. Thus the Qrtcks and ail' the adherents of that church, Including tha Russians, of course, hold their Christmas on the* Tth day of January. In the city of Now York both Christmas days are celebrated. The January date, as a matter of course, Is observed by comparatively few . persons, but it is observed rigidly, elaborately and faithfully by those who desire to render unto Caesar thnt. which Is Caesar's eren as to the calendar. New York city has a considerable population of Greeks, Russians, Armenians, Syrians, Servians, Poles, Bulgarians. Montenegrins and Vlachs, all of whom observe the Jullanlc Christmas. For forty days prior to Jan. 7 they observe a fast, eating no meat neither beast, flsh nor fowl. They eat lisli eggs or caviare, but draw the line there. Their principal diet for the forty diiys' fasting is made up of olives, ben us. caviare bread and crackers. I!ut at 0 o'clock on the morning of Christmas day, Jan. 7, the Jullanist fast Is over, it Is not necessary to hint Dial these people count the days till Christmas or that they rejoice and are exceeding glad when the anniversary arrives. These facta are obvious. C'hrlHttuas means for them a glorious feiist, a square meal, several square men Is—In fact, a round of square meals.

This Is culled the chrlatop- jsoma—"bread ot the Christ." But it Is not to be doubted that beefsteaks, fowls, fishes, saddles of mutton and other substantiate are^evoured. Here and there one of the presumably faithful proves faithless and falls before Christmas, his craving for a meat diet being too strong to resist. This weak brother is ignored by the faithful. It is In the cafes In the sectlomi of the city where the Jullanlsts dwell that this Christmas'day is celebrated With the most visible gusto.
