' I had just been reading a book, and as
I sat thinking about it I said aloud, "I
■ wish. something,'would'■ happen.". And
who should come in but a little man, so
small that I first• thought he was one of
my dolls. V; -
■ "Who are you?"; I asked at last., j
"I am: sent by Santa Claus ; to* take
you to Santa Clausville," said : the '• little

out, I saw that Santa Clausville was sit

stern voice. .

He had the most beautiful snow white

We started from San Francisco in a
", large steamer and sailed across the At
lantic ocean 1 over -■ to - Greenland. We
then walked over the ice and snow till
we: saw. a large house, or castle. . In
this beautiful place lives our good old
friend. Jolly-Saint; Nicholas;
■ He took us first to his eight tiny
reindeer that he thinks so much of.
He fed them and then told ua to come
farther on and see his toys.
We saw a room with a great stack of
games for young and otd. Then,
farther on, we came to a room with
beautiful dolls. We had seen ,ull of his
toys and were about to go home, when
he said, "I have something else; come
He took us to a room which looked
as though built of ice. In this we
found a brownie with a large book
in front of him and a telescope. In
reply to our question he said: "When
children are bad I put down their
names, and we give them about thre«
chances. If they do not improve they
don't get any Christmas presents. If
they are really angry and naughty that
year they find in their stockings at
Christmas time a strap."
It grew dark and soon we thought
we'd better be going. We took the
ship and were soon sailing nicely, when
crash! it hit a rock. But, no, it was
all a dream. I fell out of bed, and
that was the wreck. If dreams were
only true about Santa's beautiful

I live at the foot of Mount Shasta,
very near Santa Claus' home.
Santa lives in an Ice cavern on Mount
Shasta,, but there are hot geysers near
by, so it is not cold. It is Impossible
to visit him this time of*the year, as
the mountain is covered with ice and
•now and is so steep that I don't think
any little boy could climb it; so ■ I can
only; tell you what I have read and
heard about him. I wish I could go
up there to see him, then I could select
what I want for Christmas, as some
times Santa Claus' pack is so heavy
that he does not bring me all I write, ■
Now, I am going: to tell you what he
looks like and where he gets his toys.
He travels in a -big sleigh drawn by
eight reindeer, arid his sleigh is loaded
full of presents.for/every one. .Hells 7
big,'and fat and nimble and very, very
Jolly. .'He has long" white whiskers and
hair, -and a. little nose as red as ; a
cherry; wears a big red coat trimmed
with fur and a little red cap and big
tall boots. He gets the toys from the
Black ■; forest in Germany, where the
little children make them.-~.'
We have no chimney, so Santa Claua
has to. come through the big window
In the living room. He conns to our
home early Christmas morning when
we are fast asleep, puts ;our presents
on the tree, lights the candles, then
blows his horn and ll oft to some other
little boy's or girl's home. If we wake
up soon enough we sec him a3 he la
jumping out of the window.and run
ning through the snow calling "Merry
Christmas to every one."
