"Do You Believe in Santa Clans?"
After telling us the other day that
some one had told him that there
was no Santa Claus, a bright little
eight-year-old boy asked us the ques
tion, "Do you believe in Santa
Claus?" Before we had time to re
ply the little fellow answered his
own question by saying he did. There
are thousands of other little boys
and girls in our homes who are ask
ing the question, "Do you believe in
Santa Claus?" To all such en-|
quirles we answer yes, and we an
swer truthfully too. We do believe
in Santa Claus, and we pity the man
or woman who does not.
We are glad, too, that Santa Claus
does not grow old. Time has no ef
fect on him. His silvery locks do
not signify old age or senility. He
is just as active, virile and buoyant
in this wonderful twentieth century
making the little ones happy as he
was when the children of long gone
generations awaited his coming on
Christmas Eve. He finds his way)
around this great world of ours at
the Christmas tide in his marvelous
sled just as readily as if steel rails
and electric wires did not form an
almost impossible network over hill
and dale, through forest and glen.
Santa Claus lives in the aweet and
tender light of children's happy
smiles. His queer little ears?al
ways tied up in a crimson muffler,
for Santa Claus is the very embodi
ment of the spirit of winter?are
ever open, ever alert to the sound of
children's happy laughter. So long
as these sweet, alluring things shall
be, so long will good Santa Claus
reign without a rival in the affectionB
of children who lisp their prayers
at mothers' knees, and in those
of either cihldren, who at the blessed
Christmas time, catch the echoes of
the merry prattle of their own little j
ones who have grown into man's and
Santa Claus' reindeer may have
walked out of the ark when it restel
on Ararat's crest after the flood sub
sided, but who cares? The gift of
eternal youth Is theirs and they are
too busy to .bother with family rec
ords or chonologlcal tables. Each
year the rythmlc patter of their tiny
hoofs will be heard on your roof on
Christmas Eve if your heart keeps
youag and true and your ears are
still attuned to the faintest whisper
of God's own messengers. Santa
Claus flndB his happy way into the
homes of the rich and the poor alike;
into the palace and into the cottage,
wherever children have been sent to
brighten and to bless.
The life of that child Is peculiarly
pathetic and incomplete which .has
not been illumined, with an unques
tioning, unfaltering belief in Santa I
Claus. Without the. mysterious joys
of anticipation on Christmas Ever the j
richest child has lost one of the most [
exquisite phases of (earthly happiness.
Woe be to him who willfully de
stroys the beautiful ideal personified
in good old Santa Claus, Don't you
believe In Santa Claus, the gray-]
haired Balnt of universal childhood?
Nowi do say that you do, for all the
little ,boys and girls who bring
flashes' of light and the sound of
melody in our homes are just eager
to know, the truth.
Praises the Southern Hallway.
Some time ago the Augusta Chron
icle, published an aiticle from Presi
dent Flnley, of the Southern Rail
way, correcting some errors the
Chronicle made In reference to the
efforts being made by the Southern
Railway to bring people to the South
as settlers. In a manly spirit of fair
ness, the Chronicle published the ar
ticle on its editorial page, and in
a strong editorial apologized tor mis
representing the Southern Railway.
"It would seem," said the Chronicle,
"that we owe the Southern Railway
an apology?and we hasten to offer
it. For we are not amongst those
who hold it a matter of no conse
quence If they happen to do a rail
road an injustice; and, certainly, we
are not amongst those who make a
business of misrepresenting the rail
"But we did misrepresent at least
one railroad not long since, when we
undertook to show that the railroads
of the South are not doing what they
should toward advertising and bring
ing uew settlers Into this section. In]
the editorial In question we referred]
to. the part played by the transcon
tinental railroads in the development
of the Great West, and we expressed
the wish that. the railroads of the
South might manifest a Bimllar In
terest In the development of the
Southern States. We knew, of
course, that the Immense land grants
with which the Western roads were
favored from the outset enabled them
to do more than the roads of the
South, possibly, could; but we
thought, and still think, that the
Southern roads might, do a great deal
more than they are doing. We con
tended that the South offers better
opportunities today than any other
section of this great country; but
that we too rarely hear of a railroad
ir. the South making any effort to
ward advertising the lands and in
vestment opportunities In che terri
tory traversed by Its lines.
"While we still think this is true
a1: a general proposition and thatj
our remarks will apply justly to nine|
out of every ten roads in the South,
it is clearly evident that they do not
apply to at least one road; and we
are glad to give the president of that
road an opportunity to tell just what
his line is doing toward advertising
and developing the South. We,
really, had no idea that all of the
roads put together were doing as j
much as the Southern Railway, alone,
is doing: and we are doubly glad to
give a letter from President Flnley
unusual prominence, not only In an
effort to make as full reparation as
possible for our mistake as to this
particular railroad?but In the hope
that It will prove an inspiration for
ethers. Certainly President Flnley is j
to be applauded for his progressive
policy; but, better than that, he and
the stockholders of his fallway will
Boon begin to reap rich benefits from
fiuch a policy. If every railroad in

Set of Ware
if you call at our store during our Majestic Demonstration Week and
allow us to show you the many advantages and superior qualities of
the Great Majestic Range, and will purchase one at the regular price,
we will giee you Free the beautiful and useful Souvenir Set of Ware
illustrated in this advertisement. This ware is made to match the
quality of the majestic Ranges, and we know all ladies will see the
beauty and utility of this set, especially the first three pieces, which
are entirely new and cannot be had alone by purchase, except at a
very high price. The priees of Majestic Ranges are the same, but
v/e give the set FREE with each Majestic Range bought during the
demonstration week only.
Reasons Why The Great Majestx You
1 st. It has the reputation of being the best range money can buy.
2nd. It not only has the reputation but IS the best range made, and
we will prove this fa you if you will let us.
3rd.- It is construe ed of malleable iron, material j ou can't beat, and
of Charcoal iron, material that resists rust 300 per cent greater than
steel, is rivited together air tight. No heat escapes or cold air enters
the range, thus uses very little fuel to do perfect work.
4th. The reservoir alone is worth the price of range over any other
reservoir made. It boils 15 gallons of water: is heated like a tea
kettle, with pocket against left hand lining, and is movable and sets on
frame, hence cannot wear out When water gets too hot it can be
moved away from fire.
Majestic ranges use less tuel; heat more water?and heat it hot*
ter; cost practically nothing for repairs; ,last three times as long; bakes
better; easier to keep clean and gives better satisfaction than any other
range on the mardet. If you know positively that the above state
ments are true, wouldn't you buy a majestic at once?
Come in Demonstration Week and We'll Prove It to You.
One week only. No ware given after demonstration week.
