Old Bill's Gift

Bill, more familiarly "Old Bill"—he
had never been known to mention u
family name—looked around his
"haven of holiday comfort," as he
termed it, with a chuckle of supreme
ItB great!" ho gloated, "with only
one thing missing—a Christmas tree.'
Bill was a character. The towns
people designated him a tramp. Some'
how, howover, the appellation did not
seem to tit. Ho did not drin\c nor
swear. He did not beg. His willing
ways had made him popular, and when
Bill was "down on hts luck" and
passed a doorway hungry-looking, bis
wants were generally provided for un
It was the day before Christmas. Be-
hind tho patient gleam In "Old Bill's"
eyes lurked some sentiment of memory
that impelled him to celebrate. This es-
pecial year he had been preparing for ,
the event with the eager ardor of a
school boy. Bill had made no confl j
dnnts. Quietly and |
enjoyably he had
laid his plans.
These were now
perfected. A week
back BUI had
"gone to house-
keeping" He had
discovered an old
just beyond th«
town limits. The
warm and at one time had been a Har-
ness room. Here Bill had camped."
He had fished out an old oil stove, a
cot, a table and chair from the town
A particulai housewife had present-
ed him with a roasted chicken because
one side was slightly charred. On the
rude table beside it wero half a dozen
homemade doughnuts and a real
mil took a last look at the goodly
array of comfort then went out to seek
a branch of arbor vitae which would
serve as a ChrlstmaB tree.
As he neared the bam on his return
he came to a Bpeedy halt.
A light glowed over at one corner ol
the place. It proceeded from a lantern
set in the feed box of a manger. In
the manger itself across the stale hay
It contained a blanket was spread,
and, swathed in coverings upon this,
as revealed by the lantern raya, lay a
little sleeping babe.
Near by a serious-faced man was
shaking the snow from his shoulders.
BeBlde him, seated on an old suitcase,
waa a comely but care-worn woman
The man began to speak. Bill, agapo,
.Irew into the shadow and listened. It
was to hear enough to learn that bad
luck waB driving theso homoless one
from their former
on foot, to the fa-
ther of the wife,
ton miles further
on. Tho storm had
driven them to
and father had
taken a woll-
from his pocket.
He began reading aloud. It was ol
an upper room," of a master and his
beloved disciples, of a Bupper never
to bo forgotten in the memory of man
Bill stood like one transfixed. What
tender chord had been struck that ho
closed his eyes! He was back forty
years in memory, at his mother's knee
How vivid, how appealing—a picture
she had shown him of the Christ-child
ili a manger, of the devoted father and
mother, as here before him, a proto-
type of that holy eve so real, so touch
Ing—the First Christmas!
A mighty thought moved him as he
"Friend, upstairB you will find com-
fort till the storm is over. Call it a
Chriatwas greeting—see?" and was
"I'll strike out for Farmer Dale's
haymow," shivered Bill, after half an
kour'B desultory wandering, and he
turned about—to start, to shout out,
and then to run.
For there in the distance the fa-
miliar farmhouse showed no illumina-
tion within, but beyond it a glare shot
up—a haystack on fire!
Bill reached the farmyard. The
wind had blown the flames against one
gable of the house and It was burn-
ing, He ran to the stable for a pitch-
fork. Then began a fierce battle.
Bucket after bucket of water he car-
ried Tho last spark was dashed out
and Bill sank exhausted to the ground
as the farmer and his family, visiting
at a neighbor's and attracted by the
blaze, came rushing upon the scene.
"Yes," declared Farmer Dale, twe
hours later, as he showed Bill up th<
stairs and into a comfortable chamber
"this is your room, and you will sleej
here, and you're a free boarder long ai
you like, understand? Why, there'e
be no houso to Bleep In if it wasn't foi
Old Bill was a long time getting inti
bed. Like to a child he 3ank into i
peaceful slumber, his softened spiri
in radiant dreams wandering througl
that "upper room" filled with the souli
of those, howover humble, who hat
helped to make true "Peace on earit
Sood wtll to men."
