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." Martha Coleman Sherman in Chi cago Inter Ocean. His Gift to Santa Claus EDWARD vain seven yenrs old find believed, of course, In Snntn w'inus. .lust hororo ChrlstmnB ho had proudly written a letter (his IlrBt),' etntlng the particular Rifts ho wanted, nnd nftcr his mother hud rend It It wna' cnrcfully put Into the lire.

"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 of coffee. "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 lire. "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 A bowl full of Jolly won't It mother?" Llpplncott'B. Don't Say These Old Things at Christmas DEATl mo I It's a lucky thing Christ mas conies only onco n year. I don't know what we'd do If It came oftcner. It Isn't so much thp value of a pres ent as tho spirit in which it is given. I hnng my Btocklngs up just to pleaso tho children. I dread telling them there's no Santa Clnus. Let some ono elso do that. It novcr seems liko Christmas to mo unless it snows. I ul ways try to glvo scnslblo gifts something useful, thnt wlU bo n re minder nil tho year.
