  • THREE CHRISTMAS TREES;
  • AN IDYLL OF THE WOOD;
  • CHRISTMAS CRACKERS; and

The Brownies: A little girl sat sewing and crying on a garden seat. She had fair floating hair, which the breeze blew into her eyes, and between the cloud of hair, and the mist of tears, she could not see her work very clearly. She neither tied up her locks, nor dried her eyes, however; for when one is miserable, one may as well be completely so.
