HEAR the winds that sweep the moor, I know the waves are high, And far above the stormy coast doth bend an inky sky; I'm waiting still to greet my boy who promised he would come I've longed and waited many years, I've watched tho speechless sea, But somewhere in the distance sails the Seagull far from me; Each Christmastida I set his chair before the chestnut fire, And wait for footsteps at the door to bring me my desire. The rose has faded on the mead, and winter crowns the wold, And In the village Christmas bells ring out the story old, But dear to all the world, how in the soft and scented hay, In Judah's land beloved by all, tha gentle Christ-child lay. I stir the fire and wait for Joe, for , something' unexpressed Tells me that I shall feel again the hand BO often blessed, That from the tropics far away, or from the lands of snow The missing ship will bring the boy •who left me long ago. The gulls are screaming where the waves in fury lash the shore, And Christmas finds me all alone with sorrow at my door, Yet in my heart there blooms a flow'r both delicate and fair— The rope of Hope which angel hands have sweetly planted there. One day, when Sir Walter and Lady Scott were roaming about Ihelr estate, they saw some playful latnbs in a meadow. "AntV said Sit- Walter, "'tis no tvonder that poets frott the earliest flffes have tnnde the lamb the emblem of peace and innocencei" "They are indeed delightful aniidals," said Lady Scott, "particularly with mint sauce!" The vicar of Skegby, England, was conducting ft marriape where the bride was a repulat attendant at Sunday school.

ENTERPRISE PAINT MFG. CO., Makers, Chicago- Was that the storm king at my door? Or did I hear a band? Who conies to wish me well today o'er snowy sea and land? This Christmas I would wait alone within my little home For Joe, who told me with a kiss that some day he would come. It was a knock, 1 ope the door. What stranger guest is this? Unlike the tall and gallant youth whose cherished voice I miss. What! back at last? it cannot be, yet 'tis his smile, I know, And Christmas brings my darling home despite the swirling snow. Aye, thro" the tempest and the sea he comes tp .keep his word, And now I know that far above the widow's prayer was heard; There steals Into my little room a light like that which fell Upon the plains of Bethlehem when •watched the shepherds well. I place him at the table and I look Into his face, The while the village hells ring out their hymns of peace and grace; And Joe gives back the same old smile BO full of love and Joy, The smile that made me happy when he was a little boy. I read of Christmastides within the palaces of old, Where kings and princes merry make beneath a cloth of gold; But I would rather sit today within our little home, And bless the God who brought me Joe across the crested foam. —T. C. Harbaugh. joy and Expense. "Uncle Theodore, what Is the Christmas spirit?" "It is that genial joy you feel when you discover that you have money enough to go round." One morning Emperor William, who lias a great penchant for building churches, was riding in his carriage on Uhter den Linden, when and old gentleman espied him from a distance, ami immediately bared his head, which was as bald as a billiard-ball. Suddonly the old gentleman feltsome- bocly touching his shoulder, itnd heard a voice behind him saying: "Say, ol« man, you had better cover you ^heatl, for wherever the emperor notices a bald spot he'll surely build n church." Mark Twain, in his account of the German language, tells how "the in- telligen^t German plunges into a sea of vcrbiag-e and comes up on tho other side, like a doer, with his verb in his mouth." The same idea is illustrated in a story, told in tho Century, of a lady who once listened, through an interpreter, to a speech, made by Bismarck. All went well for a time, as the low voice of the pains-taking translator rendered with some adequacy tho thought of Bismarck. Then there were short pauses, followed by rapid little summaries of what had been said". As these grew more and more frequent, the lady became irritated. Finally there was an entire cassation on the part of the interpreter, and yet Bismarck was going right on with ever-increasing vehemence. There were constant calls from the lady of "What's he saying? Wliat's he saying?" and an increase of impatience proportionate to the growing violence of the speaker. Finally the wretched interpreter could stand the strain no longer, and, turning with a gesture of fierce resentmunt to his excited employer, he hissed: "Madam, I am waiting-for the verb'." Can You Solve This Puzzle Verio? ••A simple go-between am-I, Without a thought of pride; I part the gathered thoughts or men, And liberally divide. 1 set the soul of Shakespeare free, To Milton's thoughts give liberty, lild Sidney speak with freer speech, Let Spenser sing and Taylor preach. ThouEh through all learning swift I glide, No wisdom doth with me abide." If you can solve the foregoing, and send the correct answer to George H.
