children, aa they
climbed over thetr kindly relative one
Chrlstmns eve. "A story 1" repeated
Uncle Peter, affecting surprise, but
willing to draw upon Ids Inexhaustible
stock; "well, have you ever heard of
Uncle Samta Claus?" "Oh, you mean
Uncle Santa Claus 1" exclaimed Jack.
"No, I don't," said Uncle 1'etcr; "I
mean the old man with the plug lmt,
the blue swallowtail coat, the striped
breeches; the old man with eyes like
stars and n smile that never comes off
excepting when somebody Is treading
on somebody else; the old man with
the striped flag, whose headquarters
is up In Alaska; the biggest Santa
Claus there Is." "All right, then,"
nnswered the children, "tell us about
"Well," said Uncle Peter, "he has
his hands full Just now and Is doing
all he can to (111 the hands of others.
The air Is so noisy with wireless cries
and clamors, there are so many hands
reaching out over the seas, that he Is
almost distracted. Kver since he got
back from the groat war he has
been repairing Its damage and renew
ing the prosperity that It spoiled. And
long before that he was In the Christ
ians business, lie surprised China bj
refusing to accept tho great sum of
the Hoxor Indemnity. He let the Cu

them free, and many thought that he

"I'm glad I'm one of his American

Peter had concluded; with which sen

she won't," said Uncle Teter; "Ijhave
hnd a special delivery letter from
Uncle Samta, saying that he has had
his eye on this house for the Iiim
twelvemonth, and that this will be one
of his stopping places because from It
so much of service for others has been
going out. He says that oti are his
gardeners, and that you have planted
so many seeds of kindness that a lot
of beautiful things w 111 be. Mire to
come up. That Is always the way, he
says; In fail, It. Is the way In which
he got rich himself.".
This was a very pleasant assurance
for the children. It made them think
of a happy mistake that one of them
had made when they were having war
gardens all over the town: A certain
Mr. Rose had been appointed by the
mayor as Inspector of gardens for the
whole place, and one day Hetty point
ed him out to a friend with whom she
was walking. "There goes Mr. Rose,"
she said; "lie's an cxpecter of gar
When the children had been re
minded of Mr. Rose they nlso remem
bered what Hetty had done at their
last Christ nins party"; stalking heavily
and pompously. down the room, she
had said: "I'm Mr. Atlas, who holds
up the world.',' So one of them stood
on tiptoe, threw back her hind and
threw out her arms and said:' "I'm
Uncle Samta Vnm, who holds up the
world." "Well done!" cried Uncle
I'eter; "that's Just It!"
There wasn't any disappointment In
the house the next iiinrnlnr. "Hid you
get all that you wanted?" asked
Uncle I'eter. "s," hi41 Mary.
"Were you ,at all disappointed?
"No," said. Mary. When Mary said
