Virginia, your little friends are

the sceptism of a sceptical age. They
think that nothing can be which is
not comprehensible by their little

they be men's or children's, are little.
In this great universe of ours man is
a more insect, an ant, in his intellect,
as compared with the boundless
- world about him, as measured by the

world of truth and knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa

and generosity and devotion exists,
and you know that they abound and
give to your life its highest beauty
and joy. Alas! how dreary would be
the world if there were no Santa
Clau'. It would be as driary as if
there were no Virginias. There
would be no childlike faith then, no
poetry, no romance to wake tolorable

said: '1 see our Rev. Birother -

invitation and go in a body to their
