Joy Husted Fred Davenport Christmas Eve Alliance Made Two Hearts Happier THE wlnd howled dismally, ~tnd Os- car Huggins, h)oklng out at the whirlTng snow, put up the shutters. Put them up right, too. as the little grocery would be closed tomorrow. Dimly, he wondered how to spend Christmas. He checked over his stock, nibbled a bit of eileese, and opened the h~ck door to throw out a rotting apple. In the snow stood a boy. The lad dove for the apple, polishing and handling It as something prechms. "Here!" said Oscar roughly. "What are you doing?" The boy looked startled. "I thought you threw it away," he answered. "and see, It's pretty good." "Humph," said Oscar. "All right, keep it. But, mind, you've no business loitering t:ere. You should be home in this weather, and on Christmas eve. of all times." The lad shifted uneasily but did not leave. "Well?" ()scar de- monded. "I was looking for work, sir." Oscar looked at him sharply. "Out on your own, son?" "Yes, sir." "Where are your folks?" Hls tale of bereavemenL struggle and and loneliness was brief but Impres. slve. "How'd you like to spend Christmas with me?" the grocer offered. Funny, this life. A bit ago he had almost wished he wasn't closing tomorrow-- now it seemed jolly. "Gee i" exclaimed his new friend. "Swell !" They packed a market basket to overflowing. But ()scar turned back. "Wait a mlnute." i:le selected his best candies and found a bit of red string. "If I keep him to help in the store he'll probably eat It anyway," he con- soled, "might as well show hlm 5 Merry Christmas."--Helen Galsford.

There, on a moonlit December nlghL you might see Sent5 come riding in from the ocean on a surf-board. As likely as not there would be a iel, or wreath of flowers, about his neck, though he wears the same red suit and water- proof boots he dons for boys and girls of the United States, since Hawaii Is really American territory. In the Philippines. though it, too, Is American, the white cap turns conical like a Spanish clown's. He carries a red-and-white lantern which helps hlm find the home of every good boy and girl and drives huffalo, which .they call carabao.

And Santa never dis- appoints. In Japan he sits with his feet tucked under him to take his tea on a wintry afternoon, and In the Afri- can tropics---well, you Just wouldn't recognize the red Bulti He has even taken to using the airplane In our own country. I am sure that when he leaves the reindeer in his barn, he pats the nose of each one and urges the lee elves to feed them plenty of reindeer moss till he comes home again.---Pran- ces Orinatead. t~ W~rln Newsp~por Unto~ SANTA CLAUS THERE Is a Santa CIauJL HIs real name Is Spirit of Charity. He is the symbol of benevolence, compassion and altruism. He is the ideal of that small legion of really human humans who pave unselfishly numerous paths to hal> ptness withkindness, sympathy and charity. He Was a Dutch Bop Christmas was celebrated long be- fore Santa Claus was ever thought of. HIs prototype was the Dutch boy bish- op, St. Nicholas, who on December 5 used to go round punishing little chil- dren who did not say thelr prayers and rewarding those who did. Grad- ually he was changed from a boy Into a Jovial old man. while the sledge and reindeer are modern additions. Ac- tually, Santa Claus was unknown in England a hundred years ago. The Dutch founders of New York Intro- duced him to America, and England borrowed him from the States.--Lon- don Tit.Bits Magazine.

Sobot SlunJy Toys WeU-buIlt toys which will provide happy play throughout the year are better than those which make a brave showing on the Christmas tree but which are aden broken or discarded. "Come, Let Us Adore Etim," Happy Christmas Thought THERE Is a magical panse, a my~ terloua something in tire air, an awakening of man's best and sweetest instincts as the Yulethle carols ring out the hallowed wo~ds: "l'eace on earth, good will toward men." A pause when even the most sullen, forbhlding, hard- hearted person feels an urge of the soul within him, to Join in the merry festival of Christmas. Then, too, there is magic In red holly berries, gray green brunches of he- witching mistletoe, and the perfume of woody evergreens, melting wax and the burning log. How mysteriously they recall sweet thoughts of long ago to the elders ! How they fill the hearts of playful children wlth Joyous de- light ! Christmas Is the significance of child- hood, for almost two thousand years ago the Christ Child brought the re- deeming message of love to the world. Love that keeps the little flame of hope burning; love that gives patience and courage to endure the problems of life; love that prompts the giving and receiving of gifts. When Wise Men of the East, men of profound learning, saw a brilliant star and followed IL they found this little messenger of tore in his rude and hum- ble resting place, and they laid their most precious gifts before him. These gifts were highly syn|hollcaL Gold to a King, the King of Love and tiumanlty, Frankincense to a Divln. ity, the God of human needs. "Myrrh for a man, and for tl~e sorrow that re- deems. Thus they recognized in a little Child, the King, the Divine and the Man. As we commemorate Chrisrs blrtl| each Yuletide, there Is a radiant warmth and spirit of love In the giv- ing and recelvlng of gifts; we lmy homage and reverence to our King, our God and our Redeemer.--Agnes Myers We~tel~n N~W~'D&Deq" ~[~lq|O~ " Martha Found a Way to Raise Christmas Funds CHRISTMAS was drawing nearer and nearer, but Martha Woods seemed no nearer a solution .e her problem. The giving of sifts at the Yuletide season had been a tradition with Martha as long as she could re- member. This year. however, she saw no way to keep up the clterished cus- tom. During the past months her Income had shriveled to wl~ere it would buy only the necessllies for herself and Emma, her faithful servant. Through no scrimping or saving couhl even the tinle~ gifts be ~ent to those whom she wished to remember. Now, as she watched the whirling flakes of snow, she thought how love- ly it would be to see the big room full of gaily tied packages, waiting to be sent on their various ways. Regret- fully she pictured the disappointment of relatives and friends who would think she had forgotten; they would never dream she had grown too poor to buy Christmas gills; they all be- lieved her weahhy. With a heavy sigh she looked around the heautltul living room. The furnish- ings were luxurious; many of them had been In the family for genera. finns .... Suddenly a cry came from her llps. She had thought of a quick, sure way to fulfill her desires. She would sell s few of the lovely old plece~ She would send for the propri- etor of the antique shop without a moment'S delay!

Mr. Gandy Good Shopper, but Forgot Own Present IT WAS simply out of the question for Mr& Gaudy to go to Sayvllle that morning. The day before Christ- mas and a thousand things to do; but Mr. Gaudy was going. Of course he could do many errands, yet hardly the one she wished most to have done--a gift for himself. Sayvllle was the near- eat shopping place to the tiny village where the Gandys lived, a good fifteen miles over the mountain, by a rickety bus which ran once a day. Sirs. Candy was struck with an Idea. She hurried to a neighbor's house and begged her to come home with her "Just ask Mr, Gaudy If be will buy for you a pair of gloves, for your hun- hand. Give a large size. He'll never guess." The neighbor obligingly confuted. Mrs. Gandy felt well pleased wlth her bit of a scheme to get her husband to buy his own gift (nnkno~dngly) for himself, but she was a trifle dismayed when, at five o'clock. Mr. Gandy came home, tired, hungry and tumbled an armful of packages on the kitchen table. "You got the sage for the dressing? The celery? The red toy truck for Tommle? The blue mittens for Sarah? The nuts and raisins, and the white wool for grandma?" Mr. Gaudy nodded and inquired how soon supper would be ready. "And," asked his wife casually, "the gloves for Andrew, his wife wanted?" Mr. Gaudy smiled. "I clean forgot about them until the bus was ready to start ! So [ Just hopped Into a place and grabbed the first pair 1 saw. 'Good enough for old Andrew,' I thought, hut they aren't much." He grtrmed a lit- tle shamefacedly, like a boy. Mrs. Gandy plumped down in a chair. "Bill Gandy, that serves you JUst right. Tho.~e gloves are a Christmas present from me to you. You are served with your own sauce!" And she laughed so hard 1hat Bill Gandy had to Join her at his own expense.---Martha B. Timmas.

Mothers' Night, Ancient English Christmas Name THE oldest Englisa name for Christ- mas Is Moddra Night, or Mothers' NlghL In the early days, when our Saxon forefathers had Just settled down In the country that was to be England, the day of December 25th was given up to games and feasting, but the night was dedicated to the special honor of mothers. They oc- cupied the seats of honor, and every- one brought them gifts. Sons and daugi~ters who had gone out into the world strove to be at home on that one night in the year. A little later the name Yule was giv- en to Christmas, and the rejoicings of the day were prolonged into night, when men sang and told stories sitting round the cheerful blaze of the Yule log. The old customs of Mothers' Night gradually died out, though they still survive In a few parts of the country. Its place has been taken to some ex- tent by Mothering Sunday in the North of England. On that day everyone who can do so still makes a pilgrimage homewards, and the mother receives the homage of her famlly.--L, ondon Tit-Bits Magazine. THE DAYS BEFORF "What nice manners the ~lite lit- tle Thompson boys have l" "Yes. They are always like that Just before Christmas" ......m-- Proper Slap for Toy Blue.ks Four inches long by two inches square Is a good size for children's bulldog blocks, according to educa- tional experts. These can be made at home by cutting them from a 2 bY 2 planed Joist, sandpapering the edges and corner~ to a slight roundness, and painting them In bright colors. Old, worn blocks can be given a new lease on life by enameling them in flay hues. Sha]mspmu~ und Christmas Christmas Is mentioned but twice by Shakespeare and then incidentally. Yuletide was, however, an important time in his life, because it was then that his plays were produced by eom. mand at the courts of Queen Elizabeth and James I, with Shakespeare In the casts.
