A political boss wished to show his appreciation of the services of a colored man who possessed considerable influence. He suggested to the darky for a Christmas present the choice between a ton of coal and a jug of the best whiskey.

The colored man spoke to the point:

"Ah burns wood."


Santa Claus inserted an upright piano, a fur dolman, a Ford, and a few like knick-knacks in the Chicago girl's stocking. When he saw that it was not yet half filled, he withdrew to the roof, plumped down on the snow, and wept bitterly.


Lighting Up

A little boy who was telling the Christmas story to his mother, as he told of the shepherds, and the angel of the Lord, and the heavenly glory that shone round about them, said, "The shepherds were very much afraid, but the angel said to them, 'Don't be afraid, shepherds, they are only lighting up."' So they were — lighting up this world of ours with a new light.—Bible Teacher.
