HH the Order of Good Fellows yesterday.
HHH Tu tOY3 Tuler -n'a5 reading a letter

HH from a little sin who had hut one pair

HH Santa Claus would not just as lief put

HH been e, Christmas good fellow for several

Hi as miitjh as ?50 playing Kris Krlngle.
I began In a sninll way near my
HB home. Our littlo sou was acquainted
n with two children of the nclghbor-
1 " hood. Christmas day he brought
BHH them into the hous.o to sec his toys.
HHH He had showed them his troo und
HH "J1 11,0 plaything, while tho young
Wfmm visitors stared ' with expressions of
Bn)l yearning on their faces. "When I
HH ;:au' thorn my first impulse wu.s to
resent their presence. They 1 wero
HB soiled and their clothes somcwhiit
tattered. Jly impression was that It
H was not wc" tnnt 011 r noy should
H havo. such associates and I won-
H dered whoro ho had discovered I hem.
HHH 0ne 01 thorn, tho Ilttlo girl, wore a
IH broken shoe and, through a liolo In
HH ncr stocking, part of her foot was
bared, to view. Having exhibited
nnd minutely described his presents,
HH my son asked the visitors, "And
Hl what did Santa Claus bring you?"
HHH "Nothing," tald the other little fcl-
HHB low almost with a sob. His eyes wero
BfiHIl moist with tho trenrs ho struggled
HHU manfully to keep back. The girl was .
Un also on tho vcrgo of weeping,

for the rest of the day. Perhaps

jl that's tho way It was with me. It

HHH all about it. I could not and at
HHH length concluded there was but ono
HH way to banish tho thought,
j I went to the telephone and ordered
H several of my boy's toys duplicated.
H I also had them send out some candy

HHj felt better for tho rest of the dav.

If you arc tired of living. If you have
lost your faith in men. try to be a good

SAYS Jfl BROKER
"My Affection Is Wholly for
My Wife," Declares Wicl
ney in Statement.
,S'AN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7 Two state'
ments,' jn which ho declares positively
that he did not shoot himself, were is
sued today from his room in tho hospital
by Robert J. Wldncy. tho Los Angeles
realty broker, who was shot and seri
ously wounded In the apartments of Mrs.
Vivian Lyons In a down-town hotel last
Wednesday. Mrs. Lyons is said to havo
mude the statement immediately after
tho shooting that she fired the shot for
the reason that W'iducy called her
'"Bess," his wife's name. Wldncy's
friends claim he hud gone to tho wom
an's room lo recover certain letters he
had written to Mrs. Lyons. The first
statement," written by Wldncy. Is as fol
lows: deferring to the recent affair at
the Hotel Sorrento. I wish to eay
that ull of tho stories recently print
ed Jn newspapers to the effect that
J was to leave my wife are unquali
fiedly false: also all the rot abour
leaving my present wlfo when this
trouble Is over. Also. In Justice to my
wife. I wish to state that. It would
bo Imposslblo for me to attempt lo
kill myself over another woman and
R. J. WIDNI3Y.
Tho hccond ono Is more detailed. It
Owing to the numerous mis
statements which have been printed
at tho Instance of Mrs. W. C. Lyons,
It seems to mo that this Is the right '
tlmn that the truth be told.
First My affection Is altogether
for my -wlfii and not Mrs. Lyons.
Second Over 05 per cent of tho
stories recently printed as coming
from her are foolish and false.
Third So long as mullcivj havn
been forced so far by Mrs. Lyons
herself. I regret that it has been
necessary, on account of famllv and
business Interests, to tell the truth.
I did not shoot myself. Mrs. Lyons's
first statotuents to Dr. Josleu were
