In a manner of speaking, it is a kind of Sunday. Six days of the week the ideal set before you is to have the alarm clock wake you; to gobble down your breakfast before you are thoroughly roused ; to rush to the shop and get your overalls on before the whistle gets done blowing or to be docked an hour's time; to work like a nailer till noon, when you look into your dinner-pail to see what the old Jady has put up there for you, and .warm your coffee on the steamplpe; to begrudge the time for that lunch ' eon; to lick into your work again till six o'clock, with the foreman saunter ing up and down, watching that you don't take too many drinks of wnter, or get a chip in-yom- eye too often, or ;gas too much with the man next you ; to get home so tired that you fall jasleep reading the newspaper after 'supper the same thing over again to imorrow and the next day and the next day and the next day, all your life long. Tbats business. ' i But Christmas comes along. You tell your little ones that awful whop per about Santa Claus and his rein deer, and they, to whom you are the pattern of truthfulness, stand and lis ten to you with their jaws hanging loose and their eyes looking like hard boiled eggs with the shells off. And the older ones aid and abet you In the deceit, and help the little ones corad pose their sprawling letter to old Santa, asking for dolls and skates, and choo-choo cars and all such extrava gances, when you ought to be saving up your money against a rainy day. ;And you skimp yourself of necessary food to buy these follies, and sit up nights wasting your strength for the next day (which really doesn't belong to you, since your boss buys it and pays for It), and when 11 o'clock, Christmas eve, comes, and you get down from the chair, having hung up the last gilt ball or glass peacock, you re so tuckered you can hardly stand. But you turn out the gas and light the candles to see how pretty It all looks, and your wife says: "Won't she be tickled 'at this ! And won't he Jump for Joy when he sees that!" and you fty Ft your arm around her, and th ) irtartnkling candles swim before your g ptyrht, and your throat kind of chokes , 19t!2, Western Newspaper Union.) T'LL bet old Santa Claus Is gettin' let X ters by the ton From boys an' girls that's 'frald he will forget; I don't see how he talies the time to open ev'ry one There's lots o' toys he hasn't finished yet. But then, ho knows how many kids will look for him to come, An' all the year he's making something new; An' that old shop o' his, I know he makes It hum, An' Mr. Santa Claus, I bet, can hustle, too. But how does ganta get his mail that's what I'd like to know--The postman couldn't carry it, I'm sure; It's not so easy goin' miles an' miles an' miles In snow, v An' nothln' like a little pleasure tour1 Jes' .think of all the hundred thousand million million tots That told old Santa what they want this year; An' even in this town o' ours there's lots an' lots an' lots O' kids that wrote an' mailed their let ters here. V johnny Junes tdut wants a but, ;it:l Jimmy ur.l a ball, An' Harold Brown an engine that will run; An' Lucy Smith a doll that talks, an' Bess a parasol. An" little Eddie Davis wants a gun. There's Harry Green whose daddy's stnre has ev'rything there is. But Harry thinks that nothin" there will do; A baby sister's wHat he wants, an' one that's truly his An' maybe Santa Claus'll bring him two! Then thlnlt o' all the other towns an' cities 'round the earth. An' all the children sendin' Santa word To make each little home a place o' glad ness. Joy and mirth, Where Chris'mas noise an' laughter may be heard. It may be Santa hitches up his reindeer to the sleigh To get the mail that tells him what to do; But anyway, I hope each kid will have on Chris'mas day 1 The present that he wanted most. Don't you?

The latest enemy of the public util ity company is an. insect. Blind ant and carpenter bees are engaging the attention of electrical men through out the country.
