Wo always picture Santa Claus as ruddy, plump and Jolly,
Snugly wrapped In fur-lined coat, gayly docked with holly;
Whirling through the crisp night air, shot with bright star-twinkles,
While beneath his reindeers' feet the snowflake scarcely crinkles.
Tho Santa Claus wo always dream, bears upon his back
A bully, bursting, bountiful, joy-creating pack;
And if his Christmas largess should deplete his brimming store
.AH he need do is turn his team and speed right back for more.
But, alas, the real Santa Claus is often thin and weak,
And no tingle of tho wintry air brings color to her cheek;
And often on the. Christmas eve, tho Christmas spirit mocking,
She sees beside her empty hand the tattered, empty stocking.
But childish hopo is long-lived and childish faith is strong,

This method of making cough remedy
with Pinex and Sugar Syrup (or
strained honey) is now used in more
homes than any other cough syrup.
This explains why it is often imitated,
though never successfully. If you try
it, use only genuine Pinex, which is a
most valuable concentrated compound
of Norway white pine extract, and Is
rich in guaiacol and other natural
healing pine elements. Other prepara
