SOCIETY \\; The bride Never a Christmas Tree (the Story of a Pine) By WINONA KERNAN CHAMPAGNE Once there was a little tree as green as green can be. And it whispered to its friend, the fir- "rm sad again, you see, [:or Christmastime is coming ... and - in ]act - we must agree .... That you 71 be decorated- but. never- never me! l'm so prim and prickly that no one cares for me; You're the lucky fellow, you fine fir tree!" "How can you speak to me like this?" the fir said to the pine: "'Your plight to earth is yet to be; why do you envy mine?" "'Have patience, little pine tree; enjoy this time of mirth. For one day as you're growing old, you'll realize your worth!" "Now, it takes a lot of oranges to make some orange)vice. And - the apple tree was bold, indeed, with a devil on the loose! When the willow tree (so graceful) has decided not to weep. It waltzes by the river-bed and rocks the world to sleep." "Yes. soon, I shall be glittering with bulbs of red and gold. But, the Star will be shining on you as you grow old!" And. time went by ... then, one day, a man walked to the wood; Some eager children called to him, "Hey. Pap .a this is goodr'. Then, they gathered crispy needles that blanketed the ground .... And they added rusty pine cones to the treasure they had found. t "We will dip them well in silver; can you picture Granny's face When she sees them with the holly above the fireplace." I And - all was right that Christmas ... and to this very day. The "young ones"place a Baby Doll in a crib of "pine tree" hay. And- a proud old tree is standing near the border o[ the wood; How evergreen the season.., and...ALL is good! ill BRANCH-DANIELS III General Insurance Ill 00800.99800 C " 165 E Pine St [[[ _harhe Branch Jr. p 0 Drawer 57 13 00Owner ....
