Baker's Daughter Prof. O. H. Baker Is still at Copenhagen as consul, and has with him his youngest daughter Emma. In a letter dated Dec. 26,1893, she writes to friends In Indianolaa very entertaining account of what she has seen. Speaking of a Danish Christmas she says: Now, I will tell you about the Danish Christmas, tt is kept very holy, much holier than the sabbath. Early in the morning, at seven, I was awakened by a chiming of bells. It seemed very strange to hear these sounds so early in the morning. It was not like the ordinary ringing of bells for the bells were struck, not rung. At every church there were services. Again in the afternoon at four there were religious services at the churches. On the streets it was very quiet, no heavy dray wagons, no hand carts were seen on the streets, no shops except the bakeries and the restaurants, were open. All businesss was prohibited, the streets were not even swept. Only a few droohes passed our window. The stillness of the city was remarkable. It really seemed like the Sabbath. Though it was Monday, it seemed like the first Sabbath I had seen in Denmark. Today is also a holy-day, though not so holy as yesterday, " more like an ordinary Sunday" as some of the Danes remarked. Every Danish family, rich and poor, has a Christmas tree on Christmas evo. There are no Christmas trees in the Lutheran churches. Lust wee!? the markets wore full of trees,.big and little, and many were the people carrying home thoir Christmas trees. We spent Christmas eve with a Danish family. They sat at the dinner table for two hours. There were many courses. At seven we left the the table and wore soon invited into the front room where stood the brilliantly lighted Christmas tree. The tree was ornamented with gilded cones, candy and red apples, besides the many presents. The two little daughters, Kaija -and Harriet, quietly took the presents off the tree and distributed them. Yet, I must not forget to mention that before the distribution of presents, all the company joined hands in a circle around the tree. We went around it several times singing the Christmas song, while the lady of the house played an accompaniment on the organ. It was, indeed, a very pretty service. At half past ten the Christmas cake was served, beer and tea wore also brought in. Soon wo departed for home. The school children's vacation be^an last Friday and will until January 6th. The increased number of children and young people on the streets is quite noticeable. They have school here six days in the week, so the school children are kept very busy and are not soon playing about much usually. Now, I will tell you what an "ordinary Sunday" is here. Shops open until 0 a, m., servant girls running about buying the day's provisions, butchers' boys carrying meat to their customers, heavy drays and cattle wagons trotting over the streets. Most of this you can see before nine in the morning. After nine the shops are closed, yet the work does not stop, Sunday is 'the favorite day for the shop-keepers to decorate their windows and clean their shops. The dressmakers and tailors work away as though there were no Sunday. On the street at any time of the day one may meet young boys and girls carrying heavy cloaks and boxes of drygoodB. In the evening the theaters and concert halls are open. PEOM THE COUNTY TOWNS. WESLEY, Feb.
