There is a gathering of the clans in Florida in this new volume of the Elsie Series, and a great deal of information is brought out in informal talks about the history of Florida; there are visits to Jacksonville, St. Augustine, etc, and to Grandma Elsie and other members of the family living south; there is also a wedding, shopping in New Orleans, and two engagements.

"No," said his mother; "and I don't believe anybody--children, friend, relative, servant, or poor neighbor--will find himself neglected. And I am inclined to think the gifts will be enjoyed even if we have no tree."

"Oh, yes, mamma! and I'm glad to be the big fellow that I am, even if it does make me have to give up some of the fun I had when I was small," Ned remarked with an air of satisfaction.

"And to-night will be Christmas Eve, won't it, papa?" asked Elsie.

"Yes, daughter; and some of us will be going this afternoon to trim the tree in the schoolhouse. Do you, Elsie and Ned, want to be of the party?"

"Oh, yes, sir! yes, indeed!" was the joyous answering exclamation of both. Then Elsie asked: "Are you going too, mamma? Sisters Lu and Gracie too?" glancing inquiringly at them.
