"My daddy always has some sur
prise for me on that day but I just
finished writing a letter to Santa
Claus telling him I wanted a big doll
with long curls and a trunk for my
other dollies' clothes," she said joy
fully. "I never forget my old dollies
at Christmas time for I get so used
to them and learn to love them more
and more each year. I always pre
tend that they are the oldest chil
dren." She folded her hands in her lap
and for a few minutes forgot,, that
she had company. "I have some
awfully pretty things," was the
thought that emerged after Hen
rietta's short silence. "Mamma,
makes most of my pretty things and,
I make my dollies' dresses' myself." ' '
"Do you ever let your dollies ap-'
pear in pictures with you?" was
"I do sometimes," replied Hen
rietta. "I have one rag doll that I,
want to keep always. Her name Is
Alice and she was burned in the'
same scene where I was burned
Mbther doesn't think she is a nice
doll to play with f6r she has only one'
leg since she was in the fire. I don't
care though, for when I dress Alice
up you can never tell that she has,
only 6ne leg.
"This Christmas mamma let me,
send some of my dollies to poor lit-
tie kiddles who don't get pretty
things," she) went on thoughtfully.
"Of course! will miss them for a
long time but I fef sorry for the chil-;
dren that mamma tells me about, and'
1 thinkthey will be happy with some .
of my play children." '
Perched on -a big round table Hen
rietta O'Beck, the little leading lady
of the Lubin company, smilingly de
clared that she can hardly wait un
til Christmas comes because it is al
ways the happiest day of the year
