Santa Glaus Is Coming
OLD Banta Claus is coming
The time is very near
Before we realize it
Old Banta will bo here.
He'll bring us sleds and icagons,
And nuts and sugar plums,
And dolls, and furs, and dresses,
And balls, and swords, and drums.
He'll come tohen we arc sleeping,
Tucked in our beds so white,
And all the stars arc peeping
At this, our Christmas night.
He'll come with smiles and blessingi
Along the milky way,
And stop at every dwelling
Where little children stay.
He'll garnish trees with presents
And, while the world is still,
With gifts the children asked for
Each stocking he will fill.
But, better than all presents,
He'll bring to us again
The heartfelt Christmas wishes
Of "Good will unto men."

nnd nftcr his mother hud rend It It wna'
cnrcfully put Into the lire.
"Now," snld Edwnrd'H mother cheer
fully, "thnt letter will ro right up tho

Edwnrd seemed very much Im-'

perfectly delighted with tin shower of

"Wasn't It good of Snntn Clnus to ;
bring mo so ninny more things than I
risked for in my letter?" ho snld nt tho
breakfast table, clasping his hands Irt
nn ecstasy. After this outburst ho
grew thoughtful, then, suddenly Jump
'ing up, disappeared Into the kitchen.
His mother nnd father looked nt each
other nnd wondered. Then tho mother
followed to see whnt tho Inspiration
might be. (
She found Edwnrd standing In front
of tho kitchen stove pouring out a cup
"hy, Edwnrd, dear, what tiro you
doing?" his mother asked, coffee being
ono of tho child's "forbidden things."
Edwnrd looked up appcallngly. "It is
such a cold morning, mother "
"But, Edward, you know I novcr per
mit you to tnko coffee 1" ids mother In
terrupted. "No. no. mother: I do not wish to
drink it. I want to give it to Santa
Claus. lie was so kind to send mo
more engines nnd things than I naked
for. May I give him some coffee nnd
rolls, mother may I?"
Beforo his mother had time to think
of n suitable reply the .child had put
cream and sugar Into tho cup; then,
with his little face nil nglow with up
preclatlon nnd gratitude, ho earnestly
poured tho stenmlng coffeo into tho
"There nowl" ho exclnlmed, with
satisfaction. "Thnt will go right up
the chimney nnd direct to Santa Clnus,
won't It? And It will wanntip his
llttlo round belly
That shook wlion ho laugh'd lllco
