Indian Children at
ITTLE Jimmy led Engle and1(
his brothers peepied from un
der their red blankets long be
fore daybreak on Christmas
morning. They cnst an eye about the
tei0e, but not for stockings filled with
presents, for Jimmy and his brothers
learned many years ago that Santa
Clauses never came to topees. In the
first place, there is no chimney in the
tepee, and, secondly, there is no fire
place. The teacher was responsible
for this, of course, this talo which
buzzed In their little brown ears and
made them sad. But the Red Eagle
boys and girls were not discouraged
because Santa had not come to their
tepee and forthwith made arrange
ments to go to him.
On the Indian reservations of the
southwest Santa comes to the little red
schoolhouses dotted here and there
along the trail. The teachers have ar
ranged for his visit there every Christ
mas, and that day is spent under the
roof of plenty distributing the pres
ents that have been left there by un
seen persons. It is a day of good cicer
for those little brown people. who do
not know much pleasure anyway. The
boys forget their hasifulness -- I min
gle with the girls In their an ty to
show their presents. At noon the
teachers set out a dainty lunch, such
as is not known in tepee life. and the
little fellows and their sisters gorge
themselves. The afternoon Is spent in
entertainment, partly by the little fel
lows and partly by the teachers nud
the older girls. A nent progran is ar
ranged, and songs, recitationis nn(l
charades follow. At eventide the little
ones are carted home In buggles nud
there go to sleep and dream of great
things that are to come into I heir lives.
The holidays are a continuous round
of pleasure to the reservatloin IndIan
children of the southwest. They play
their rough games and cat the enndy
and chew the gum. Their principal
play is going on the warpath. That i9
for the boys, while the girls pIay at
jumping the rope, making mud ples
and cooking. Indinn girls of late years
have been elevated above theIr former
position, of waiting on bucks, to lace
making, painting and studying and
teaching music, until some of them are
quite profleient in this line. The little
girls are not allowed to play with the
boys on the same playground, although
the teachers advocate their association
in the classes and schoolroom.
It has not been until within recent
years that Kiowa, Comanche, Apache,
Arapahoe, Cheyenne, Wichita, Tonka
wa. Ponca or Osage children knew the
slightest thing of a holiday, the birth
of Christ, or even that there was such
a person as Christ. But when the res
ervation schools opened all of these
things were taught, much against the
desire of the old Indians., who did not
care to have their offspring renred in
the path of the paleface. whom they
so despised. The mothers used to move
their tepees close to 'the reservation
schools. and every night they wculd try
to worm out of the Child everything
the teacher had taught her during the
day. Progress with the red children
was thus delayed until an order against
tho women coming near their children
during the school season was issued
and enforced. The little girls are quick
to learn, and the boys are apt and

sibility of Conscription.
London, December, 18.-The week
end finds the war situation in the east
and west bearing the outward appear
aUcC of comparative quietude, and
some observers are ready to predict
that operations will virtually remain
at a standstill until after the holidays.
Nevertheless, there is no lack of
food for speculation, particularly on
the eastern front, which now virtually
stretches across two continents, from
North Russia to South Persia. In the
extreme north there have been unof
ficial reports that the promised new
German thrust between Riga and
Dvinsk has already begun, but neither
Berlin nor Petrograd confirms this in
the official communications. '
Five hundred miles further south the
Russians believe they have checked
another enemy attempt to resume the
offensive in Galicia.
In the Balkan zone the first chapter
is closed, but with more than 2,000,000
men of a dozen different nations un
der arms, it is not likely that quiet
will reign long. There is promise of
new annoyances for the Bulgarians
and Germans in the Italian operations
through Albania and the Russian con
centration in Bessarabia.
Grand Duke Again.
Meanwhile, in the lo-called middle
east, Grand Duke Nicholas's advance
to Hamadan br ings strong Russian
forces to within about 200 miles of
B3agdad. It is b:elieved in the Entente
Capitals that his operations will put
new Importance into the British oper
ations in Soulti Persia.
Tlie situiation on the Greek border
is most obsen m~c. Di ploma tie comipli
cations are believed to be in a fair
way of settllement. The Greek clec
tions tomorrow appear not likely to
be a serIous factor, as the. refusal of
the followers of Irx- Premier Venizelos
to participate will leave salall chance
for a change in Greek policy. But the
threat of a German advance into
Greece continues and provldes numer
ous possIbilities for upsets.
London is devoting a large share of
its attention to domestic affairs, the
possibility of conscription for single
men who failed to respond to Lord
Derby's call sharing the stage with
proposals for a lottery scheme to aid
the State in floating a large popular
loan. The government has found it
impossible to prorogue Parliament be
fore Christmas and it is assumed
that on the resuming of business on
.January 4, the sessions will continue
for about a fortnight. The members
probably will be summoned to return
for the new session early In February.
