"Now, what la it you wish me to
bring you for Christmas, little lady?"
asked the kindly saint, as tiny goldenhair
was led timidly forward at the end of
a parental forefinger.
When Alice had told him all about the
wonderful doll and the many other
things slio wanted he wrote it all down
carefully and would have kissed Alio
if Alice's mother had not mistrusted the

SOMETHING HAPPENS TO ALICE
Just then something funny happened.
There was a blur of lights and Alice
clung tightly to her mother's hand until

Just then little Alice caught a glimpse

around, in all directions, jumping: over

wooden man about it. but he would not
