There was a little boy in Ashland who had
JUuLoul all about Santa Clau, who he was,
whero ha caffco from tffi how he got his gift?.
Tho gentle mysticism had melted out of his

little eleter or the other little boye."
Hereafter when we bear anyone denouncing
the Santa Claus fiction we will think of this
little boy and his divine philosophy.
