The first indication of croup is hoar seness, and in a child subject to that disease it may be taken as a sure sign of the approach of an attack. Follow ing this hoarseness is a peculiar rough cough.

It is used in many thousand of homes in this broad land and never disappoints the anxious mothers. We have yet to learn of a single instant in which it has not proved effectual.

Finally came a story that the sailor had died, and soon after the arrival of these tidings there came through a gate in New Amsterdam's wooden wall a worn and weary woman with a babe in her arms. Where she was received and sheltered Hans did not know. "She had my name once," he doggedly asserted, "but she is no child of mine now." One might naturally feel that this wintry night Lysbet and her babe would be exposed to the coming storm. That swinging bell might say: "Rejoice, rejoice," but was not there room in some hearts for the feeling of anxiety? Hans was not at ease. He could not drop this subject that had come up for notice. "Families," he muttered, "ought not to comes, And from the steeples far and near The bells are ringing, sweet and clear. To welcome In the birthday morn Of One in lowliest manger born.

When Katryne returned Hans was in a very painful mood, and lie remarked, in a sympathetic tone: "It is a bad night, my child." "Yes, father, but Christinas will soon be here." "Is the watch out?" "Yes, father, and he almost ran into me, as if he thought I were a savage that had just come down the North river in his canoe and needed to be looked after." "Humph! The watch is a savage if he can't tell a goodly woman of New Amsterdam from one of those Indians. Unless he follows better fashion I will re- - "The snow sliding down the roof, my child." "It is something at the door." "Let me go, Katryne. The watch is up to a trick, I dare say." He went to the door, opened it, and there upon the stoop what did he spy? "A roll of beaver skin!" exclaimed the fat Hans, stooping and grunting. "Ugh! a Christmas gift of beaver for Hans Van Schenkel." What luck! He bustled back to the fireplace, opened the beaver skin, and here to his amazement was a sweet-facechild! It opened its eyes, cried once, stared at Hans, and then, as if it had found a protector, shut its eyes again. "Oh oh father! A poor little babe! Let me have it! I will take it to my bed." At first Hans fumed. Then he gradually became quiet. At last he did what Dutchmen have been charged with a fondness in doing he went to sleep, the beaver cradle still in his arms. He had not ventured to drop it, for what if the baby cried again and the neighbors heard it? The baby had found a protector, knew it would not be separated and had gone to sleep. Hans followed. In his sleep he heard a voice. "Hans, thou hast the Holy Babe in thy who comes this night arms, the Christ-chilto every home. Wilt thou turn Him away?" He opened his eyes, and there was Katryne. All over the crimson were white doves from the sea. "Thou wilt keep him, father?" He could but nod his head. She went away, quickly TO Tft& Christmas Handsomely Equipped AND HEADY FOR THE TRADE.

The Great Prize Hirpu Found in His Lost Stocklnos How He Was Accepted. A Dazzling Display of HE bell of the St. Nikolaaa church was merrily going, the bell of the quaint church in New Amsterdam's fort close by the blue water that rippled around Manhattan Island. It was Christmas eve, and did not St. Nikolaas' bell have a right to swing merrily? It seemed to say: "Christmas coming, coming, coming," and in its joyful tones one might have caught the echo of that jubilant proclamation: "For unto us a Child is born, unto U6 a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulders, and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." Swing and ring, 0 bell! Christmas was coming. Ring away, 0 iron bell! To Gov.

Hans Van Schenkel 6tood on the stoop of the shop where he sold beaver skin and other furs, but the ringing of the bell brought no special satisfaction. "What is that bell ringing for?" he asked, turning to his daughter Katryne. "It is ringing for Christmas, I think, father, and that is good news." "Verily, daughter, there is something better than Christmas, and that is that snow is coming, and thou hast a home with thy LOVELY SELECTIONS FOR THE HOLIDAYS. k We have taken special care in selecting our Holiday Goods, and cordially invite you to inspect them before making your purchase.

She that broke that chain must take the responsibility." "If broken, father, can it not be mended?" "Not unless wisely, justly done." "Christ says that we must love one another." As she spoke she was facing a rude wall picture of the child Jesus in His mother's arms, Joseph standing by. "Look at that, father!" She pointed to the picture. "They love one another, father, and " "I love thee, good daughter." This encouraged Katryne, and she broke out into a bold proposition: "Then why not let Lysbet come home?" "Katryne! No more!" Only three words, but he put enough port him lo Herr Stuyvesant. He will beat him with his wooden leg." "Oh oh, father!" " Yust, my child, I was only jesting, and to show that thy father will care for thee." "I thank thee." After this pleasant and domestic episode there was silence. Hans sat before the broad open fireplace with its frolicking flames and smoking his pipe, while Katryne made her spinning wheel fly merrily round. In one of the pauses of her wheel she said: "I heard a voice, father." "It is nothing. The wind, my child, blowing straight from East river and Helle Gat." Burr-r-r-- r went 'the wheel, and then came another pause. "I do hear something, father." "She was the prettiest and brightest girl we had at our house party that winter," related the smiling old lady who lores to dwell upon the holiday festivities when she was a girl. "She was a great favorite with the men because of her dashing ways and the air of good comradeship that she always carried about with her. Yet we could never see that any one of her suitors was favored above another, and often wondered if she would fill the appointed destiny of woman. "In the party was Harper AHisoa. We always called him Harpy. He was big, athletic, and good to lok at, but we never thought of him as a brilliant man. It was as plain as could be that he was in love with her, and men of his typ are so persistent. They lay siege, and, no matter what may come, they continue the siege. "I know that he proposed to her a score of times, but he was always pnt off with the laughing assurance that she was not to be won by any of the stereotyped methods, and that if he ever did find a lodging place in her heart he would see a sign. "Christmas eve we all hung up our stockings outside our doors, just as a lark, you know. In the morning we all had presents to show but Harpy. He pretended to be disconsolate beyond consolation. He had put out a great long pair of woolen, stockings, knit in black yarn and tipped im red by a fussy old aunt in Maine who always feared that Harpy never dressed warmly enough. He had not only been slighted by Santa Claus, but the stockings themselves were gone. "After dinner there was a sleigh ride of kind. As she raised her the dress to clamber into the big sled we all saw that over her dainty shoes 6he wore heavy woolen stockings, and the toes were red. 'Now I know what I got!' shouted Harpy, and before us all he tossed her into the air, caught her as she came down and kissed her indefinitely." Detroit Fre Press. THE NEW YEAH.

"Come, come, child, thou hast a good home. What is the matter with thee?" "Thou knowest, father." "Humph!" growled Hans. Then hebroke out: "I know what ails thee. Thou art sighing for that sister of thine, and is it any fault of mine because she would, yes, would, in spite of all I could say, marry that English sailor, that Jack Lang? I warned her. When, then, she went into the wilderness was it my fault?" Katryne turned away to hide the pearls that fell so freely from her blue eyes. She thought of the day when Jack Lang and Lysbet Van Schenkel stole through a gateway in the wall of the palisades running where Wall street now is and giving a name to it. The lovers disappeared there, and not for a long day was Lysbet seen, but Jack never. It was said that they were married by an English clergyman, somewhere, at "A foundling, Katryne! Who cumbers my stoop with a foundling? The watch shall take it to Herr Stuyvesant this very returned, and a woman followed her who knelt beside Katryne at his side and said: "My child!" "Thou wilt forgive me?" "And thou wilt forgive thy father?" That was all. No, not all. Hans reached out his hands and rested one on the head of Katryne and one on the head of Lysbet. The babe stirred now in its furry cradle, only to look up and smile. And somehow it seemed as if the picture on the wall had got out into the room, and the love and peace in that group of the Holy Family came down like wings, and the air of June had made summer and song that Christmas eve under the roof of Hans Van Schenkel. Edward A. Band, in N. Y. Observer. "Father!" night." "Father, stay thee! Look!" and she pointed at the picture on the wall. "It's . Wouldst thou turn like the Christ-child- Him away this eve of the blessed festival of the Nativity? No, no; keep him till I get back, anyway, I pray thee." Katryne was very nimble. Hans was very slow. Ere he was fully aware of it she was under her crimson hood and it was slipping out of the door. "I keep it only until thy return !" he called, but a stout door of oak was already between her and Hans. He was in a dilemma. The child cried when it was moved to a bed. The return, of New Year's day invites many people to the most somber reflections. Undoubtedly most of us can find abundant occasion for these, but there is such a thing a3 pushing and to the point of discouragement. The best temper with which we can enter upon the new year is that of faith, faith in God and faith in ourselves through. His help. It is about as certain as anything can be that the new year will bring us new experiences. Our courage, our capacity for endurance, our steadiness of character and power of resistance is to be tested. At the end of the year we are going to be nobler men and women than we are today, or we shall have deteriorated morally, and forever afterward there will be narrowing opportunities. While we think of the latter alternative it is well to strengthen our hearts by the former. Let us believe that we are not going to fail and we have taken a long step towards success. When another New Year's day comes around we are going to be able to reckon solid gains in character won through the trials and temptations and emergencies o the year's experience. Boston Watchman.

The walls were oi stone, often without cement or plaster; the roofs were of boughs or poles laid side by side and covered with mud and straw; the floors were of earth. They contained few rooms if indeed, there were more than one, and no windows such as are to be found in modern houses. The best of these buildings were hardly more sumptuous than the dugouts of the American prairies or the crofters' cottages of Scotland and Skye, but because of the dryness of the climate they wcre not uncomfortable.

This Jive stock Rosy's aunt had given her because she was going to take the little -headed brother with her that had been such a burden to the aunt. So they dwelt together in the cabin, Rush and Rosy and the small boy, who had not yet worn trousers. Rosy had been the prettiest of the hill girls, but had no land, no prospects. She loved Rush Palmer with unquestioning, unreasoning trust. He Lad worked all the summer on a farm near. When he came, from nowhere in particular, he said, he was thin and white. Now he was brown and brawny. When he asked little Rosy to marry him and she said "Yes" without question, he had given her a curious look. "Your cousin Karl calls me a tramp," he murmured. "I care not," laughed Rosy; "he is mad; that's all." They were happy, in a careless, innocent way. On Thanksgiving day Rush killed quail and showed Rosy how to broil them.

All should ring clear and true and sweet as the Yuletime chimes. The spirit of Christmas is that of Him whose birth it commemorates. It softens evil, sorrow and hopelessness with the magic touch of charity, for in charity is the embodiment of all the Christian graces. It gives to goodness a brighter luster and to resolve a nobler purpose. It is a spirit born in every heart that can know its inspiration, without regard to creed or race or station. Of all the days to which man has given special observance, Christmas alone has grown in its power, its beauty and its value. It has been stripped of the grandly devised liturgy and dramatic representations that had their root in heathen customs dispelled by the true Christian spirit, but the change has been one of purification and marks beyond cavil a clearer conception of the sub- - It Y PAPA says at Santa Claus goin' to bring to Is me Christmas time.

"It pays to be truthful," said Smith, as he picked up a cheap cigar after looking longingly at the expensive brand he usually smokes. "Some time before Christmas I chanced to remark to my wife that I needed a new overcoat, but that I thought I would try and get through the winter with my old one, as matters were pretty close with me, and I couldn't afford it. "Christmas day, most to my surprise and consternation, my wife presented me with a handsome silklined overcoat that I saw at a glance didn't cost less than 50. However, I had to grin and bear it and try and figure out some way to pay for it. "One day I chanced to meet Jones on the street, and as he was admiring the overcoat an inspiration flashed over me. "Jones is about my build, and, as he needed an overcoat, I asked him what he would give me for mine. lie said $25, and I accepted the offer so quick that it made Jones gasp. "I figured it out this way: By accepting r $25 for the coat I could manage to raise 25 and thus get out of a situation that was keeping me awake nights. "I had to tell my wife some sort of a fairy tale, so I went home that night with a long face and a story about a sneak thief having stolen the overcoat out of my office while I chanced to be away. I felt like a sneak thief myself when my wife burst into tears. But I burnt the bridges behind me, so I had to carry out my pait. "My wife, while down town one day, chanced to run across Jones wearing the overcoat. She recognized it at once, and, calling a policeman, had Jones arrested. "There was nothing now for me to do but to confess the whole thing and get Jones released from behind the bars. The result was that I had a bad hour with my wife and a two-daystruggle with Jones to talk him out of suing me for damages. "But the worst remains to be told. My wife had bought the overcoat from funds that her father had sent her. "I never want to see another Christmas again! I never want to see Jones again! I wouldn't mind if I didn't see my wife again until it was warm enough for summer clothing!" Philadelphia Inquirer. Gift 'Iaklng One of ttc flcsl Gracious Features of the Season. "Gift-makinis one of the mo-- t graewu , of Christmas and oik that i pray feature.-may survive all other outgrown custom;," writes Florence Hull Winurburn, in the Woman's Home Companion. "When love and sympathy are clse counselors there is little fear that we shall make the mistake of leaving out of our little one's stocking the particular thing he has set his heart upon getting. And if his choice is beyond Us to gratify, let us come as near to it as we can, and not convert this season into a sort of convenience for ourselves, thrusting upon his reluctant acceptance such prosaic articles as shoes, hats and other essentials of the toilet. Far prettier is the German custom of bestowing gaudy trifles that have no use in themselves, but are part of the glitter and fashion of the holiday. When, it is possible nothing is so good to have as the traditional Christmas tree. In after years memory hangs upon it fondly, and we bless in our hearts the kind hands that took so much trouble to give us pleasure. "Then the stocking hung up on Christmas eve has a romance all its own. The breaks and fast table dressed with gifts piled under snowy napkins is a graceful custom, and is far nicer than the blunt handing out of our gifts. Some trouble should be taken to create the welcome element of surprise. We all like it, but it is one of the greatest delights in a child's experience. He finds out before we would choose to have him that what is looked forward to most eagerly seldom turns out well. It is sad philosophy, yet true, that it is dangerous to set one's heart on anything in this world. l!ut the love that hides its intention until the hour of fulfillment, and then lets out its secret in an outburst of generosity, is the best substitute that is ever offered for the special Providence Santa Claus, and all other gracious myths. "An example of generosity is seldom lost upon children if it is true, not artificial. They are very willing to iivc up to their little knowledge, if we allow them the chance, and part of our duty to the day is to encourage in our young people the same kindliness we cultivate in ourselves. It is so much easier to learn in youth to be genial, sympathetic and generous than it is after embittering experiences have hardened our hearts." The First Celebration of Christmas. Christmas was first celebrated in the year it was 40 years later before it was adopted as a Christian festival; nor was it until about the fifth century that the day of celebration became permanently fixed on the 25th of December, up to that time it had been irregularly observed at various times of the year in December, in April and in May, but most frequently in January.

That which is divine in our common nature grasps its kingship with Iiim whose spirit is the spirit of the Christmas time. How potent, how more than human, ia this spirit appears best in the universal obedience given to its sway. All, with unvarying regularity and with hearty approval, bow in glad submission to its established customs and emulate the example, if they do not indorse the faith of those to whom it is indeed a holy day. Strange miracles are wrought by this same Christmas spirit. It brings smiles to the face of melancholy itself. It gives life to a hope that seems dead. It exorcises the evils of hatred, malice and envy. To old age it brings the keen, fresh joys of youth and to childhood a clearer appreciation of the spirit that presides at their Christmas revels. But above all, this spirit which is the divine spirit of Christmas, makes it a day of loving remembrance, of doing good to others, of seeing that all about us have at least one bright and happy memory of the dying year. The admonition of this spirit is not alone for universal rejoicing, but for individual contentment and thanksgiving There is an ideal reached when merry children dance about tree glittering with remembrances that fill the cup of childhood's joys, when each branch and think of what we might have been had she been other than she was.

KIND. . The Christmas Dinner Table. Place the table for the Christmas dinner in the center of the room, under the chandelier if there is one, and then see that it is perfectly level and the leaves well fitted, writes Mrs. S. T. Rorer in the Ladies' Homo Journal. From the chandelier hang a large spray of mistletoe or holly tied with scarlet ribbon. If there be a mantelpiece in the room, bank it with holly and ferns. Arrange a pretty corner, blending all the greens used in decorating. Cover the table first with a heavy cotton flannel cloth, and place over it the spotless linen tablecloth. Place in the center of the table a mat of Christmas ferns, in the center of which stand a high fruit dish, filled with polished red apples, grapes and such other fruits as may be obtained. Cover the base of the dish with sprays of holly; on each side of this place or china dishes filled with bonbons, olives and salted almonds. The bottles and a dish or two of celery water may occupy the other places. She Knew Him. Tom Did you give Miss Gotrox a Christmas present? Jack I tried to. Offered her myself, you know.

But do you ever hear of its being a man's duty to make home so attractive his wife won't want to go out in the evenings? Does anybody ever advise him, when he comes home tired at night, to put on his dress suit and try to entertain his wife to keep her from being attracted by younger and handsomer men ? Not much.

"Then, it seems to me, a man might resolve not to unload all his troubles on the family hearth. Of course, I know every day a man has to go through with enough to try the patience of a saint, but because cotton has gone down instead of up or things haven't run smoothly at the office is no real reason for slapping Sammy and kicking the cat as soon as he gets within his own door. A man might occasionally remember that a woman has troubles of her own and needs to be cheered and brightened. We are continually told that a woman should always meet her husband with a smile, but no woman can smile long enough or brightly enough to raise the temperature in a house where a man is sitting around with a scowl on his face. It takes reciprocity, and it's just as much a man's business to smile and help to make home happy as it is a woman's. "There's always room for plenty of good resolutions New Year's day and other days.

It is the grand rallying day of the neighborly proclivities of the people of the entire district. Many men make their first and last visit of the year on this day, and only see certain of their friends on this one day of the year. As they grow older these festival days seem to come closer and closer together. Lists are published in the newspapers of the houses where receptions will be held, with the names of the ladies who will assist in receiving. The assisting lady often attracts more callers than the hostess, and newly-arrive- d families are on the lookout for popular women for their New Year's day receptions. There is no need to interrupt the grand round of calls for luncheon or dinner; the carriage is hired for the day, and, dressed in his very best, the caller must see all the old friends and make as many new ones as time will permit. Everywhere open house is kept in the lavish southern fashion. Tables are loaded with viands hot and cold, supplemented with real southern or a bowl filled from the housekeeper's winter supply of Fish house punch, mixed from a formula that is an heirloom in Philadelphia families.

To begin with: I'd have them make resolution to spend more of their a cast-iro- n time at home. When a man marries a woman he leads her to suppose he does it because he yearns for unlimited quantities of d lier society, and it must strike any person a good deal like getting goods under false pretenses, if, as soon as the honeymoon wanes, he chases off to the club or downtown the minute he gets his dinner, leaving her to solitude and the unexciting delights of her own company. It is a situation that perhaps a man never appreciates, because he has never been there himself. It couldn't happen to him, because the moment he detected a symptoin'of louesome-nes- s he would put on his hat and go off to the theater or the corner saloon, or some place where there were light and brightness and gayety. A woman has no such resources. She can't go around at night by herself hunting up company, but must sit at home, no matter how lonesome and bored the may be. Men are forever wondering why women want to congregate together in boarding houses. One answer to the conundrum is that they want somebody to talk to while their husbands are downtown at night. I have yet to see the woman whose husband man and home-lovinwas a who wasn't satisfied to stay there, too. There's one thing dead certain, and that is that if men were as anxious to stay at home evenings as they were to call on a girl before marriage, and if they took as much trouble and pains to try to entertain their wives as they do their sweethearts, the domestic millennium would be in hailing distance.
