OLD FOLKS' CHRISTMAS

The cover was removed from the huge box and Grace held up the coat.
" Oh, Mother! " said Caroline. " A sealskin coat! "
" Put it on," said her father. `` Not now. We haven't time."
" Then look at this! " said Grace, and opened the case of jewels. " Oh, Mother! Opals:" said Caroline. " They're my favorite stone," said Grace quietly.
" If nobody minds," said Ted, " I'll postpone my personal investigation till we get back. I know I'll like everything you've given me. But if we have no car in working order, I've got to call a taxi and catch a train."
" You can drive in," said his father. " Did you fix the brake? "
" I think it's all right. Come up to the garage and we'll see." Ted got his hat and coat and kissed his mother good-by. " Mother," he said, " I know you'll forgive me for not having any presents for you and Dad. I was so rushed the last three days at school. And I thought I'd have time to shop a little when we got
in yesterday, but I was in too much of a hurry to be home. Last night, everything was closed."
" Don't worry," said Grace. " Christmas is for young people.
Dad and I have everything we want."
The servants had found their gifts and disappeared, expressing
effusive Scandinavian thanks.
Caroline and her mother were left alone. "Mother, where did the coat come from?" "Lloyd and Henry's."
" They keep all kinds of furs, don't they? "
" Yes."
" Would you mind horribly if I exchanged this?"
" Certainly not, dear. You pick out anything you like, and if it's a little more expensive, it won't make any difference. We can go in town tomorrow or next day. But don't you want to wear your opals to the Murdocks' ? "
" I don't believe so. They might get lost or something. And I'm not-well, I'm not so crazy about "
" I think they can be exchanged, too," said Grace. "You run along now and get ready to start."
Caroline obeyed with alacrity, and Grace spent a welcome moment by herself.
