THE LOOKOUT MAN.
(From The Commoner.)
Now, listen, little children, and I'll tell a story true
And better you remember, for it means a lot to you?
For If you heed the lesson, then when Christmas time is here
You'll get a lot of presents and a lot of Christmas cheer.
The Lookout Man Is walking when the stars begin to peep
To see If little children are in bed and fast asleep;
And all who act up naughty and don't mind their ma's and pa's,
The Ixmkout Man is watching, and he'll tell old Santa Claus.
I knew a little fellow once who got real had, and said
He didn't care for Santa Claus, and wouldn't go to bed;
And said he didn't have to mind?O, he was awful bad,
And didn't seem to care a mite in making folks feel sad
Hut when it came to Christmas Day he didn't get a thing,
For Santa Claus had heard of him and not a thing he'd bring.
He knew that bad boy's record?better mind your ma's and pa's,
The Lookout Man is watching and he'll tell old Santa Claus.
1 also knew a little girl who was just awful bad,
She wouldn't get her lessons and she always got so mad
If anybody told her to bo still and hush her noise?
Well, she was always wishing for a lot of Christmas toys;
But when 'twas Christmas morning, to her wonder and surprise,
An empty stocking hanging in the corner met her eyes.
You see, she acted naughty?better mind your ma's and pa's;
The Lookout Man Is watching and he'll tell old Santa Claus.
The Lookout Man Is peeping through the windows every night
And counting up the children who are always acting right,
And going off to bed at once when told it's time to go,
And never pouting, not a bit, or taking clothes off slow.
He puts them In the good book, but the bad ones in the bad,
And when he writes a bad one, O, he looks just awful sad;
For he knows they will get nothing?better mind your ma's and pa's?
The Lookout Man is watching and he'll telj old Santa Claus.
OLD MAN GIDDLES OBSERVES

a Christmas gift.
Henry Tarbuok says that as soon as
people begin giving him socks and
handkerchiefs exclusively for Christ
mas he 1b going to apply for a berth
In the old folks' homo.
Eli Timmoiis says he doesn't see
the sense, of tying up a 25-cent present
in 18 cents' worth of ribbon and tissue
paper and paying 50 cents to send it
to some one.
While you aro sorry for the tired
salesman, like as not the salesman is
thinking sympathetic thoughts of you.
