A I J. Marsh is up in arms, -
And meets our applause
In keeping such a host of things , .
For darling Santa Claus.
No perfumery or traps to deck
The body; there you'll find
Choice rood ror the intellect,
To feed the youthful mind.
Santa Claus will have enough
For wherever he may go.
He makes his headquarters at
Marsh's News Depot.
