HAWKINS Copyright, by American Press Association. 1910. j i j Sherman Bell dropped from the train and then stood watching it make its laborious way through the piling drifts. The wind screamed around the little railroad station and tore at the roof savagely. His married sister had recently gone to live in this quaint old village, and she had planned that this first Christmas in the country was to be of the genuine old time variety. One of the chief features of the Christmas eve entertainment was to be a tree and the advent of Santa Claus down one of the wide mouthed chimneys, which was to be thoroughly cleaned for the occasion. "oa are to be the Santa Clans," she bad written to her brother the week before. "Frank is entirely too I stout to come down the chimney, but an athlete like you shoultl be able to accomplish it without difficulty.

There was a ladder here, and she looked in the porch for his old fur coat. There was nothing there, and it was evident in the haste of Christmas preparations the coat had been forgotten. Sherman felt ruefully of his own fur coat and then with a shrug of the shoulders opened the suit case and adjusted his pack and in the shelter of the porch put on the mask Bat it is altout as hard to save and placed his fur cap on the snowy mosey as it is to make it. unless hair. "They haven't come into the sitting you keep a room yet Well, I guess I'll start my descent and let them know I'm coming. I shall freeze to death out here." As a matter of fact Sherman was very warm and comfortable.

As a matter of course Mr. Bell lost his balance and went down p.fter it, raising a suffocating cloud of eoot as he fell. The pack of toys swung over his head, thumping him vigorously all the way down till he stuck tight in the chimney just before he reached the fireplace below. Too sooty and uncomfortable for utterance. Mr. Bell maintained a dignified silence until his kinspeople should see fit to extricate him from his uncomfortable position.

He recovered himself quickly, however, and emerged from his sooty condition with a little shake of his fur coat and an adjustment of his blackened mask and beard. The old gentleman and the girl called Eve stood together, and he bowed low before them. "Santa Clnus, at your service," ho said in his pleasant voice. "I'm afraid I've made a mistake. I was due to get down Mr. Frank Adams' chimney at this time, and I was sure I had the right house." "Across the street, sir," explained the old gentleman gravely, yet with a merry twinkle in his eyes. "Santa rarely makes mistakes, yet who can blame him when these houses are so nearly alike. The Adams house and this one, sir, were built by twin brothers and are alike as two peas. We are glad to see you, though you did give us a surprise." "It's my business to do that, of course," laughed Sherman, and then without more ado he swung his pack to the floor and proceeded to find within it some gift for each of the strangers There was he had dropped among. much laughter and merriment over Eve Ross the toys he distributed. blushed warmly over the one he gave to her. It was a miniature fireplace with a figure of Santa Claus emerging from the chimney w ith a pack of toys. Afterward Sherman doffed his mask and stood forth as handsome and well set up a young man as one would care to have drop down the chimney onChrist- mas eve. I m atraiu i ve made ratner a mess of the floor," he said ruefully after introductions had been made and he found himself in the midst of a family party. "Never mind that," consoled Mr. lioss aunaoiv us nu leu me vu. uuu another warmly lighted room in the midst of which stood a huge Christmas tree. "We've had that room closed for several days past because it is sooty. Something happened to the chimney the other day, and a man has been here tinkering with the job for several days. He knocked off today on account of the snow and left all his ladders and so forth around, so that made your path easy, eh?" "It did. I found the way well prepared," laughed Sherman. "I'm sorry, but I believe they're waiting for me across the street, and the youngsters will be disappointed if I don't make my appearance down the chimney at the appointed hour or as near to it as I can manage." "Surely you're not going to try to do it again tonight!" protested Eve. "It's rather a dangerous feat, you know." "Not a bit," reassured Sherman. "You see, the houses are low and the drop is not a great distance, and they will be prepared for me. By the way, I must express my thanks for my cordial reception." They laughed and pushed forward, and young Henry Ros'j gripped his hand In a most cordi".! manner. .After he had shak-.uds with everybody and iTv.mised to come over the next Jay and tell thjjla about his second chimney adventure, Sherman went forth, his palm still thrilling from contact with Eve's rose leaf baud. He found proper preparations made for him at the house across the street, and his descent of the Adams chimney was effected in the tamest manner, and his appearance was the signal for the wildest rejoicing on the part of his nephews and nieces. "Where did you get so black and sooty, Sherman?" asked Mrs. Adams after awhile. "We had this chimney thoroughly cleaned, and Timothy said there wasn't a speck of soot left." "I don't suppose there is, my dear," returned Sherman amiably. "My soot came from another chimney. Before I tackled your chimney I played being my own Santa Claus, and I've made myself the most beautiful present in the world." "What was it. Uncle Sherman?" asked little Amy from her seat on his knee. "What was your beautiful present, and may wo see it?" "Some day I hope to show it to you," returned Sherman solemnly. Mr. Adams spread his hands to the genial fire and eyed his brother-in-lawith a keen, amused glance. "Amy. my daughter." he said, with a chuckle, "your Uncle Sherman means he will soon introduce you to a beautiful auntie!" Sherman stared and reddened. "How lo you know that?" he blurted out. Marcia arose and, slipping her hand In her husband's arm, drew her brother to her side. "Your face betrayed you, dear," she smiled at him. Little Amy had been thinking deeply. "Then Uncle Sherman's wife will be Mrs. Santa Claus!" she cried joyfully. And of course that is what they called Eve Ross after she married Sherman the following Christmas. w WAMTED BLOOD. Turgeneff and ?nj Reconciliation Tht Followed. Raymond Beconly in the Paris Figaro gives the following account of an early encounter between Tolstoy and Turgeneff, which shows the Russian sage in a different frame of mind from the one in which the world has since come to ki,ow him: It was on the estate of his frieac!, the poet Fet. near Yasnaya. Turgeneff was among the invited guests. The hostess inquired after his daughter, who was being reared in France. Turgeneff spoke highly of his English governess. "With a truly British exactitude." he said, "she requested me to fix the sum which my daughter might spend for charity. And now she teaches her pupil to mend the ragged clothes of the poor." "And you consider that a good thing?" asked Tolstoy. "Certainly." replied the other. "Tt brings the benefactor into direct contact with the persons whom he is helping." "On my part, I think that a we'll dressed chiid who handles dirty and ill smelling rags is playing a hypocritical and theatrical farce." "I must ask you not to speak In Turgeneff, with this way," ex? menacing looks. "Why should I not say what I am convinced is the truth?" remarked Tolstoy. "You think, then, that I am educating my daughter badly." and. while Fet was interceding. "If you will talk in that way I shall box your ears." Then he left the room, begging Ms hosts to pardon his abrupt departure. Tolstoy also went. At the neighboring station he wrote to Turgeneff demanding ati apology. Ho ordered pistols and fried to provoke his rival to a duel. TurcenofT's answer, very dignified, brought the apology demanded by Tolstoy. He closed by saying that he thought it best thai two men with such opposite tempers should henceforth break off all relations. Tolstoy, carried away by his anger (it was in 1SC1), declined to be satisfied with such an answer. He felt that he had lie demanded been gravely offended. reparation by arms. He therefore repeated his provocations. His friend Fet, who attempted to pacify him. succeeded only in drawing from him this vigorous reply: "I beg of you henceforth not to write to me any more. I shall return your letters unopened, the same as I do with After these occurrences Turgeneff returned to France, where he passed the greater part of his time. Some months later, on reflection. Tolstoy regretted his violence. Seized with remorse, he sent Turgeneff a letter asking his pardon. "I find it exceedingly painful," he wrote, "to think that I have made an enemy of you." Turgeneff forgave, as one may imagine, but the complete and definitive reconciliation took place much later. His Quarrel With d Turge-neff's.- " OLD ENGLISH . ONE OF MANY STYLES WE CARRY JR.

The habitations of English common people for centuries consisted of a wooden hut of one room, with the fire built in the center. To this hut, if a man increased in family and wealth, a !can-twas added and later another and another. The roofs were of thatch, the beds of loose straw or straw beds with bolsters of the same laid on the floor or perhaps eventually shut in by a shelf and ledge like the berths of a ship or by a small closet. The Saxon thane or knight built a more pretentious "hall." a large open room like the Roman arrtow vith a lofty roof thatched or covered with slates or wooden shingles. In the center of the hard clay floor burned great fires of dry wood whos" thin acrid smoke escaped from openings in the roof, above the hearth or by the doors, windows and openings under the eaves of the thatch. By day the "hearthsmen" and visitors when not working or fighting sat on long benches on either side of the fire and, as John Hay puts it, "calmly drinked and jawed" or. gathering at long boards placed on trestles, regaled themselves on some sort of porridge with fish and milk or meat and ale. At night straw or rushes spread on the floor formed beds for the entire company in the earlier and ruder days, when the "baser sort" were glad to share their straw with the cows.
