It nearly broke Puck's heart.
Puck walked out of the kitchen up
into the play room on the top floor.
He crawled under the curtain which
adorned the bed of Frances. the last
doll to arrive from Parts. p
Puck grew drowsy, and the last thing
his eyes rested upon before sinking
into sleep was a large book cut In the a
shape of Santa Claus and colored to
look like him as well The book con
tained the story beginning "'Twas the p
night before Christmas," and Puck had
heard Daisy rend that story only the
night before. What was his surprise a
to see that book straighten itself until
it looked like a soldier on parade, but a
of course it was not a soldier, only a
Santa Claus. the very being from
whom he was trying to escape. Santa I
Claus began talking to him.
"Puck, I do not like to see you show
such an ugly spirit this day before t
Christmas. Christmas is my day, you a
know, and I like every living thing to
be happy when it comes around. y
"If you want to get fun out of Christ
mas quit expecting a merry Christmas
for yourself. Try to give it to some
one else." went on Santa Claus.

out other people from helping."
Puck was wide awake and polite
enough to crawl out from beneath the
bed and listen to his visitor.
"You know Daisy Is to have a party
tonight," said Santa. "There is to be
a splendid tree with presents on it, and
I have made that tree the handsomest
I ever trimmed. I had planned to
make my appearance myself to wish the
boys and girls a merry Christmas, but
I simply cannot take the time. If you
would like you can take my place. I'll
dress you for the party. If you will
allow me I shall look around and see
what I can find in Mlss Dalsy's play
room. Good, the very thing. We'll
make a hit!" And Puck looked toward
the wastebasket, where he saw a false
face of Santa Claus with its long
white beard and the remains of a glue
