whllo tbis mornlng's rcturns from

Tho turnlng of the tldo toward Llb-

Tho grcatcst surprlso was in Coven

John Burns dashed around tho con

An Impresslve lesson of the cam

Christmas to somobody, you just call
out to tho sonder, 'Let ino go along.
I'll make your glft more enjoyable;
I'll ibrlng moro happlnese than you
can think of.' And then," eald Santa
Claus, to mo "folks wlll etlck you to
their letters and parcels and send you
all over the .world." I was so glad
whcn ho told mo that, but I was hap
plo stlll, when a protty lady wlth a

llko tho one on my face, eald to a
man who wanted me, "He costs only
a pcnny, and overy pcnny you glve

that awful plague, consumption." Tho
man Hstonod intently and then he
