The First Christmas in America.
Of course the first Christmas in
this new world, as it has been
called for the past four hundred
years, was the one spent here by
Columbus and his followers. They
had but recently completed their
marvellous voyage across the
ocean, and made their wonderful
discovery. Since then tht-y had

chanted enchanted beauty, and they looked
forward with eager anticipations
to celebrating their first Christmas
in a manner so befitting their
surroundings as to make it mera--orable
in all history. In one way
they were not disappointed. That
Christmas will always be memora memorable
ble memorable in history, though it was made
so by an event about as. different
from what these early navigators
expected as can well be conceived.
To Columbus, instead of a day of
triumphant rejoicing, it proved one
of the saddest of the many sad
days of his eventful life.
After discovering the first land
at San Salvador and cruising for
ten days amid the delightful is islands

was like a happy dream. The

a large canoe filled with natives,
sent by the cacique of that part of
the island, to urge the white men
to visit his village, which was but
a short run to the eastward. They
brought valuable presents of gol golden
den golden ornaments to Columbus, and
so impressed him with an idea of
the power and riches of their ruler
that he at once decided to accept
the invitation. He sent one of his
officers and several seamen to bear
presents to the cacique, and to
notify him of the intended visit.
At the same time Columbus de determined

On the day before Christmas al
was in readiness, and the ships set
sail. They were expected to reach
an anchorage near the cacique's
residence during the night, and a
grand salute from every gun on
both vessels was ordered to be
fired at sunrise.
The breeze was so light that by
11 o'clock on Christmas eve the
ships were still some distance from
their destination, drifting idly on
an unruffled sea. So peaceful was
the night that the admiral, worn
out with excitement and overwork,
determined to get a few hours ot
sleep, leaving the ship meantime
in charge ot her sailing master.
This man was also sleepy, and no
sooner had his superior officer
sought his cabin than he resigned
the idle helm to one of the ship's
boys, and, lying down under the
bulwarks, was speedily unconscious
of all that was passing. The oy,
thus left in sole charge of the ship
and her fortunes, soon became, in
turn, overcome with the all-pervading"
drowsiness, and it was not long
before he too fell asleep at his
post. So the ship drifted until
after midnight, at the mercy of
the currents, and without the care
of a single wakeful eye.
