on their best behavior. 

Of course, the universal ambition to soar

Take another turn, however, and we come to

but in the course of -.nno even this 
phase of Toyland may undergo 
4 change.' Games bid (air to become extremely 
popular. ' Diabolo, or "the devil on two sticks," 
haa already eaptorsd Paris, and the demand 
In London suggests tbe likelihood of its be- 
coming a great craze there. 

At a moment wh.>n tho toy industry in Prance 
is on the wane, the famous caricaturist ("aran 
d'Ache conies to tbi* rescue. Peing medically 
forbidden to follow his art, he turn»'d. as a 
hobby, to making wooden animals. Unable to 
repress tbe humorous strain in his soul, he Im- 
parted to his creations a mlrtb-proroking char- 
acter whieh has already made them tbe rage of 
Parte ; and to Judge from tbe Burllngtaa A^ 
eade they will ere long beoome quite a erase 
In London. 

FVom the cheap mechanical toy which im- 
pedes our progress through the Htrccl.';, as dis- 
played on the pavement by the enterprising 
camelot, to the wonderful creations which the 
Nain Bleu, that paradise of French children 
for nearly a century, has provided for the pam- 
pered darlings of the wealthy, the predominat- 
las element In the FTeneh toy of to-day to 
meehanleal Ingsualty. Never lias this bssa 
more notloeahle than la tke aovOMsa vUek the 
manufacturers are propariag isr ths soniat

The average PVench makei of toys scorns 
to offer the little ones such simple things as 
our childhood knew; and the wooden doll and 
woolly baa-lamb are to be found only In the 
paersr distrleta. Dolla awds of wood there

Among the more expensive toys, and one 
which will give the small boy with a gun an 
opportunity lo prove himself a crack shot, la 
the pigeon shooting device, which Is an attrac- 
tive novelty. V'goxi a pole about eight feet In

right aaerrlly for a few yarda, when suddenly 
there waa a terrible ahoek-^e cataatrophe! 
The car came to pieces, and the unfortunate oc-

pitiful heaps beside the machine. Sometimes 
the realism was Sf) Intense that the lucklosa

Merry

By D, M. EDWARDS 

T WAS OhrlBUnas night

was "stttck"-'-that to, 
he had ihoro papers 

than he eould sell. 
With a fimall bundle 
ynder one arm and 
hands thniHt di np In 
his pockets he strolled 
up Broadway In the 
happy Ohrlatmas 
crowds. Through the 
diamond froated win- 
dows of the restan- 
rants hs COOld aeO'll* 
diners wIthiB tongBllIt 
and animated over 
their holiday banquets. 
He Jingled a hundful 
of pennies and nickels In his pocket 
and wondered bow In tbe world a boy 
with a stook of unsold papera on hie 
handa aad only M eents with which 
to have hla Ohristmaa feaat, keep 
hira through the night and start htm 
in buf'inoHs tho next moriilng. had 
much chance to be so very happy. 

As he plodded aimlessly across 
Korty-third street a big man, hulking 
of shoulder, lantern Jawed and deep 
cheated, lumbered out of a gam- 
bling honae near by aad awung Into 
Broadway. Orumbltng^about "hitting 
me pretty hard" and "never had any 
lack In my Ufa," he plowed his unv 
across the sidewalk, lunging imainsi 
any one whQse path lay across his. 
He howled Ihrougli a line of mincing 
men and women who blocked the side- 
walk In front of an all night res- 
taurant, scattering theni like tenpins 
and making no apologies. Blind to 
everything but his own ill Iwdt, he no- 
ticed nothing until he came upon a die- 
beveled and boisterous man holding 
a newsboy and trying to take hta pa- 
lters from him. 

"What th' ell y' doln"?" growled thi* 
gambler, as he gave the unsteady niun 
a qulek punch and tumbled him Into 
a pile of dirt, allowing the lad to dart 
out o( hann'a way, yelling In glee at 
the (alien tyrant 

"Y* \A%^ stiff," threatened the gam- 
bler, as he leaned over the man, "if 
y" peep another word I'll wring yer 
head oir tilt up now an" go home f 
your wife — An' I s'pose you'll beat 
her t vii even," ho comqiented, aa he 
turned away. 

A few blocks (nrther he heard 
a voice at his elbow: 

"Say, mister, I want t' thank y' far 
hei|iin' me when that dude pinched me 

papers " 

Hun along, sonny; don't let It worry 

y" none. " 

"I want t' give y' a paper, mlater." 

"Trot!" returned the other, curtly. 
"Pl»'ast> take a paper, mister," per- 
sisted the lad, riiiinliiB along beside 
the man anil holding out lii.s bundle, 
'■ 'cause, pee! we don't of en have folks 
help us like yuu done. I'm stuck to- 
night, anyway, an' have got plen^ to 
spare.' 

The gambler stood lliU and sniffed 
the air aa If at that aoment, (or the 

flrst time, he had caught the Infection 
of I lie Christ nins atnio.s|ihcre. 

"Pretty lough on ;-oiiu> of you kids," 
he said. "Heie, take iIiIb and so blow 
yourself," he added, aa he pulK^d a 
irreenbaek (rom his pocket, pr eaa d#li 
into the boy 'a hand and oonttnaed « 
his way. ' 

"1 ain't askin' you fer money, " called 
Patsey, tagging along in the man's 
wake. "1 Jes' w.'iiited t' gtVO yOO ' h 
l>uper fur helpin' me." 

The gambler made no reply, hut 
walked on all the (aster. He had gone 
A hloch further aad evidently thought 
himself rid of the boy, when the totter 
suddenly piped out again: 

"Please tahe yer money baek« will 
yer—" 

"Aw. beat ttr said the gambler, 

savagely. 

Pataey stopped. He watched ths 
form of bis big man fads Into the 
daiiniess snd then looked at the omnw 

pled greenback In his hands. 

"Gee, wouldn't dat nios'ly crimp 
yer'?" he mused as he turned back into 
the canyon of electric lights and head- 
ed for a place where he knew 
he would find cranberry aanee»

THE PUBLIC LEDGER'S 
CHRISTMAS OREETINfi 



Thi Public Lboobb todaj^ iiaoM its Obrittin«a ad^'er* 
tising namber and school edition, and tbe nterehBnts, plttrons 
and ahoppera and the eotire poblio, from the wee^ tot to the 

J>i>;gest man and woman, will 
please acce|>t, thouj^h a little 
early, our kindest Christmas 
Oreeting. 

Thia iMae is primarily a *'bu8i- 
neaa edition," for the merchant 
and the buying })ul)lic — the edncational feature for teacher, 
parent and children, and all iox n lictter. a l>ij?f<er and a new 
Maysville, with Plut^town, Oklahoma and (Jliftou, with their 
1,200 population, all eventually gathered to the arms within 
the Vaiting corporate limits of oor booming city, where they 
shoold be. 

Why not? 

It is pleasing to see Maysville grow. Thia city should 
have !.'<», 0(M> people instead of 10,000, and we see no reason 
why the former tiijiire-* should not he attained in the ne.xt ten 
years. We have the wealth and the location (in East Mays- 
ville) for a city of twice oar preseot siae, aad all we lack is 
harmony and enterprise, which do not ooit a eent, oonnting the 
big resalts ensning. 

For over a hundred years Maysville has been apathetic 
and aslenp to her n\\n possihilities. As old as Cincinnati, l»iit 
forty times snialltif, is Maysville's recofd. Now that we are 
aroused, let (»ur awakening be that of a giant, wbo, suddenly 
realizing tbe full (lotency of bis own strength, marches out to 
battle, determiueii ti> win every contest or perish in the venture. 

Our Churcliurt and our Church-goers, our schools, and 
the children and i^-achers who make them, should now make for 
the besr gif s of civic rigbteoasness and all the high ideals of 
h line ciitcrjuiie. 

ENGRAVING . . 

Nothing makts a mor3 appropriate Xmas 
gift tbao engraved cards. Oall and see 
samples and get prices. You will need 
cardf^ to send witb yotir gifts. Let US 

have your order e irly.

• No, no, I wouldn't have you. 
You've got a sUly old wife, moonin' 
over something she's lost sight of," 

and she went in with him to put 
on the teakettle. He cartted the 
t a ki't of giai'is on one arm, but 
he put the other nnn about her to 
help hi'r a little. "An' Wen we Ray 
grace. Huhly, we 11 thank the Lord 
we even hed the picter. and bev it 
still to remembor," he said. 

In the doorway of the little red 
house on a lower terraco of the 
knoll two other persons were talk- 
ing, as it rhai'.c' d, ui on the same 
theme. 'I'he curve of the hill hid 
all but a gable of the little red 
licHi-e in I'tebles pasture from the 
f the old people above, and 
the forest of tbe swamp hid from 
It, also, the view of plain and river 
and hill that bad so tod the poetry 
In the soul of the little iflother. 

"Well." >al.! I.uzanne, looking 
over her s shoulder, before 

the closed easel and color box, "it's 
jfreat, this coming into the country to 
I aint an l jibotograph winter scenes 
nnd finding yourself shut off from the 
nuisi glorious laada c apo yoa can 
Imagine!" 
*«hut off?" taqulred her huabaad. 
"Oh. you're content with the day of 
small things, Eugene! I was till I 
saw what lies on the other side of that 
groat Wet wood down there." 

' What Is if Mnrnlng and Oroek 
temples? SunHlilne and a rolling sea' 
The purple of the hills?" 

"Titles fbr p^tnrea? No; pictures 
themselves. Ju^^e vale of Avoca. 
the vale of Caahmlre, the valley of 
Avlllon, a fragment of Kden. Some- 
thing Idyllic and perfect. I was on 
the edge of th" wood and got in — it 
was so allurim: - deeper aii.l deeper, 
till there 1 wa.>< scared to death of the 
morass " 
"Poor child. " 

"But It wasn t so wet, after all — ^It's 
been so dry— though there were spots 
Just steaming where the sun broke 

throtigh. But I skirted them and made 
for the light, and the trees grew thin- 
ner, and suddenly I was at the end, 
anil there, below anil beyond, lay th';> 
\ery outskirts of Paraillse. 'V'es. in- 
deed, a view that would make our 
everlasting fortunes and give «s s:it 
isfaetiou In our souls if we could put 
even bits of It on canvas. Why, I 
should feet I'd been chosen for sanctl- 
Ocation if I were only allowed to do

shall be conten' to no on pahithik; old 
Purple behind Mt- t.iere, now I've seen 
this. Ami fan( \ . If that Bwaniiiy wood 
were out of the way. we could sit 
here all winter and sketch, and feel 
an uplift in every brushful of paint, 
and every one of tbe pictures would 
be himg on tbe line next spring. Isn't 
It hard to be shut out of Paradise by 
n bit of woods? It's as bad as a 
Ilanitng sword." 

"I'm not shut out of rtkradise," said 
her husband, looking at her with the 
' red on her cheeks, the spark In her 
eyes, her whole face full of the spirit 
of life. 

"Oh, I know, it's all delightful, our 
being together here by ourselves. It 

Is Paradlae, of courie. But that view 
out there would Justify It. and It's 
vexatious to have to go afield for what 
we might have from our own door. 
.And i; too fur. in the winter weather, 
every iluy. There's a long Interval of 
champagne country from tender green 
to dark, with warm russets, and a 
blush of red sapphire, threaded with 
creeks that are neither blue nor green, 
but the green of the grass and the 
blue of the sky and tbe gold of the 
sun: and in the middle distance a 
river skims along, the bluo stooping 
into il. and beyond are hills clothed 
with level layers oi jilne foreet, and 
you look straight Into their depths aa 
if you penetrated mysterlea, and over 
all is a bountiful, enormous sky, blue 
as blue, and oarrylag hero and there 
a mare's tall of a snowy cloud. And 
gulls — yon ought to see the 10.000 
gulls swooping round the river! Oh, 
It's no use stayinK here with that to 
tantalize us. the breadth, the larj^e 
ueas. the freedoBi— and only old pur- 
ple hills to console us. One picture 
of old Purple and there's an end. But 
thia— why, yon could paint all winter 
and not exhaust it Think of It. with 
the blue shadows of the snow, with 
sunrets like llres on a groat hearth,

If there is no such thing as telep-

this saaio half Imtir that the Chanipion

shoulders, and brightening at sight of 
the big tiro their mother Bad had laid

"Nothing beats Are," said Rose 
Chanipion, pulling off ber gluvea and

■ Well, that's ftLfMd way off. I hope," 
said their father, coming in. "Mighty

and warmed him with their welcome.

There's enough wood In that for 60 
families— black birch, gray birch,

before Christmas— and there you |

"Uob," said Mr. Champion, "you're 
a genius! There we are!" 

"There we are!" said the girls in 
one brave breath. "It will to a good

"It makes me all of a glow now to 

think of it!" said Rose. "I wonder 

what Donald will say. Fifty or 100 
families made comfortable by ■going 
without some trinkets - though I did 
want that English edition of 'Pater.' 
Why. we don'l know 100 poor fami- 
lies." 

"The Ooneral Charitable doea. When 
shall we begin, father? I'll ororsee 
It for you," said Rob. 

"To-morrow morning, early," said 
hln father. "There won't be an hour

Ihered by or before Christmas. I'll 
have drains put In as we go along 
and get a good piece of grass land out 
of It WoU. I abaU Bleep bettor to- 
night" 

If the people on the knoll had lis- 
tened that nest day and many a day 

thereafter, they might have heard, or 
th.iught they hoard, a swuid of chop- 
plUK in the swamp woods, faint, far 
on. luumeil in the rustling of falling 
loaves and the crashing of branches. 
But the painting people were busy 
with Old Purple at the back of the lit- 
tle red house, and little mothw was 
getting her mince meat ready for 
Christmas, and what with atoning 
raisins and slicing citron and sifting 
splcos and bollInK down cider, she was 
too miu h occupied to think of any- 
thing but her work aud of Asa's and 
Laury's home-ooming. 

"It seems to nie the woodpeckers 
are drettal busy down ta the swamp." 
nhe salil once 

"I'rob'ly Ihe trees hev borers," said 
her husband. 

"Why, that's too bad," she said with 
her quick habit of kindUneaa, and 
went on atout her work. 

She had Just put her mince meat to- 
to its stone crock to mellow, when a 
sudden access of her rheumatism sent 
her to bed with Jugs of hot water at 
her feet and opodeldoc liannels all 
over her. and coiilous draughts of com- 
poeitlon powder, her eyes following 
her husband through the open door 
to fright and dismay at his attompu 
to d her work, till the painting lady, 
as tlK>y called her. happened up the 
hill, and. stranger though she was, her 
self took hold and put things Into 
Bbape and cooked enough to last till 
I-aury should come, having written to 
Laury to make baste. "I wouldn't 
send for hor," ahe said, "but we have 
to go aad arrnngo our exhibition, and 
sou oar things. But I aha'nt bo tU 
Laury comes. We're oomlng baek to 
have our first Christmas together hero 
b it we must go as soon as we can." 

*You're real good." sighed the little 
wo'jian. "I'm more ohleoKcd to yo\i'n 
I can say. I hate te see blni stewing 
about Uto a kltehen-colonel. Uut, oh. 
I did want to to around when Laury 
come. I to a IttUf better." She took 
the painting lady'a hand aad mlB04 It 
to her lips. "Oh, yon musta't!" tto 
ludy cried; PJd she bent doWB and 
kissed tbe withered cheek. 

"The Lord'll reward you for tho 
good you've done, an' the cheer you've 
gleo," said tto Uttle mother. "Kf he 
dent to ao oClnr way. he's dona a 
mighty lot tor yon ta makto' yon Jea'

And so it camn to pass that two 

or three weeks later the stage set 
down the palniInK people one night 
at a point on the highway a few rods 
froui the llUix i»d house in Peebles 
pasture, aud they picked their way

"What In the world are yiui talking 
about?" asked the painting lady. 

"Come up an" tell her if yon do," 
said Laury, and snatched up her shawl 
and ran away laughtog. 

The. ann waa atreamtog into the 
room toforo tbe painting people, tired 
with their Journey and their work, 
awoke. It was at the same moment 
that every team to be had down at the 
Port was ilellveriuK great loads of 
wixid at .'lO gates, with tho b''.<;t Chrl.st- 
mas wishes of the Chanipion family. 
It was only partially dry, to be sure, 
but there was enough pine-tree Kto- 
dltog to tosaro a royal blase aad every 
burning nrmfnl wonid dry another 
armful. 

"I.u/anne!" cried her husband. ni|b> 

bing his Bleepy eyes; "what to the 
n.imi' of mercy are you doing?" Foi 
she wan kneeling at the window with 
both bands clasped, her hair falling 
about ber. her face shining with ecs 
tasy. 

"Gome and see!" she cried. "Oh 
Eugene, tto miracle haa happeoodll 

Oh, can't you boy the place? Comei 
come and see! The swamp ia gone 
all gone! What am I dotog? I an 
looking Into heaven!". 

For there, all the soft rusts ani» 
russeto veiled and glowing under a 
transluoence of violet vapors smittea 
with the son, lay the long totorvalOk 
the river aparkling through It eorve 
after curve alive with light; beyond 
It the pine-clad hills, their black-gree» 
depths casting purple gleams ucros* 
thom, and a great pale heaven, stiU 
with a nush of rosy sunrise to It, 
soaring overhead. 

It was at tho oame tnstoai that 
Laury, having helped tor mother, 
rolled In blanketo. Into her dwlr. had 
with Asa's and her-tathor'8 hglp. 
pushed It to the window and pulloc 
up the white shade. The little mottot- 
looked out bewildered. "No unow?* 
she said. Then she looked back at 
ber husband, at the others, and looked 
out again. "Have I dioir sho whto 
pered, hoarsely. 

"Oh, mother, mother, don't you aeo 
what's happened r' cried Laury. "FH 
ther's kep' It for a surprise. It's tb«.

"Oh!" she said, clasping her lltthi 
thin hands. "It gives me youth again 
It's wtot I had. so long agik wiU
