OLD FOLKS' CHRISTMAS

"Do I have to get up now? Honestly I can't eat anything. If you could just have Molla bring me some coffee. Ted and I are both invited to the Murdock's for breakfast at half past twelve, and I could sleep for another hour or two."
" But dearie, don't y ou know we have Christmas dinner atone? "
" It's a shame, Mother, but I thought of course our dinner would be at night."
" Don't you want to see your presents ?"
" Certainly I do, but can't they wait? "
Grace was about to go to the kitchen to tell the cook that dinner
would be at seven instead of one, but she remembered having
promised Signe the afternoon and evening off, as a cold, light sup
per would be all anyone wanted after the heavy midday meal. Tom and Grace breakfasted alone and once more sat in the liv
ing-room, talking, thinking and pretending to read.
" You ought to speak to Caroline," said Tom. " I will, but not today. It's Christmas."
"And I intend to say a few words to Ted." " Yes, dear, you must. But not today."
" I suppose they'll be out again tonight."
" No, they promised to stay home. We'll have a nice cozy eve
ning."
" Don't bet too much on that," said Tom.
At noon the " children " made their entrance and responded to
their parents' salutations with almost the proper warmth. Ted
declined a cup of coffee and he and Caroline apologized for mak
ing a " breakfast " date at the Murdocks'.
" Sis and I both thought you'd be having dinner at seven, as
usual."
" We've always had it at one o'clock on Christmas," said Tom. "I'd forgotten it was Christmas," said Ted. "Well, those stockings ought to remind you." Ted and Caroline looked at the bulging stockings. " Isn't there a tree ?" asked Caroline.
" Of course," said her mother. " But the stockings come first." " We've only a little time," said Caroline. "We'll be terribly
late as it is. So can't we see the tree now?"
" I guess so," said Grace, and led the way into the music-room. The servants were summoned and the tree stared at and admired. " You must open your presents," said Grace to her daughter. " I can't open them all now," said Caroline. " Tell me which is special."
