OLD FOLKS' CHRISTMAS

" Where is Ted? "
" Isn't he home? I haven't seen him since we dropped him at the hockey place."
" Well, you go right to bed," said her mother. " You must be worn out."
" I am, kind of. We danced after the play. What time is break fast?"
" Eight o'clock."
" Oh, Mother, can't you make it nine? "
" I guess so. You used to want to get up early on Christmas."
" I know, but "
" Who brought you home? " asked Tom.
" Why, Paul 11Zurdock-and Beatrice."
" You look rumpled."
" They made me sit in the 'rumple' seat." -
She laughed at her joke, said good night and went upstairs. She had not come even within hand-shaking distance of her father and mother.
" The Murdocks," said Tom, " must have great manners, making their guest ride in that uncomfortable seat."
Grace was silent.
" You go to bed, too," said Tom. " I'll wait for Ted."
" You couldn't fix the stockings."
" I won't try. We'll have time for that in the morning; I mean, later in the morning."
" I'm not going to bed till you do," said Grace.
" All right, we'll both go. Ted ought not to be long now. I suppose his friends will bring him home. We'll hear him when he comes in."
There was no chance not to hear him when, at ten minutes before six, he came in. He had done his Christmas shopping late and brought home a package.
Grace was downstairs again at half past seven, telling the servants breakfast would be postponed till nine. She nailed the stockings beside the fireplace, went into the music-room to see that nothing had been disturbed and removed Ted's hat and overcoat from where he had carefully hung them on the hall floor.
Tom appeared a little before nine and suggested that the children ought to be awakened.
" I'll wake them," said Grace, and went upstairs. She opened Ted's door, looked, and softly closed it again. She entered her daughter's room and found Caroline semiconscious.
