WHO WAS ST. NICHOLAS.
Many of our readers might ho puzzled
to answer who was, or rather tvho is San
ta Claus? Any child can tell, especially
if you put hint the question at the Christ
mas time. What! you don't know Santa
Claus, who goes frisking over the world
the night before Christmas, with his
bundle of good things on his back? Nim
bly he leaps down every chimney and
fills the baskets and stockings around the
hearth wall. How often have our little
friends dreamed all through the blessed
night of Christmas eve, of the good Santa
Claus and his expected gifts! Santa Claus
then, or St. Nicholas, as he is more prop
erly called, is the especial patron of the
children. He was archbishop of Myra,
in Asia Minor. He lived in the fourth
century of the Cliriseianera. Simplicity,
modesty, and a boundless charity charac
terized'the saint. From the time of
death great honors were paid him, both
iu tlie Greek and Latin churches, 1 'and
numerous altars and shrines were dedi
cated to God under his patronage. With
the Russians St. Nicholas has ever been a
favorite saint. In tho vear 1807, certain
merchants of Bari, an Italian seaport, on
the Adriatic succeeded in carrying off the
relics of St. Nicholas from Myra. Num
erous miracles were said to have been
wrought at Bari on the arrival of the sac
red remains. The saint's sbriim at Bari
has ever since been a resort of pious pil
grims. The childlike virtues of the saint
and the peculiar aid he extended to
young people during his life, are the chief
reasons why lia is so frequently represent
ed in pictures by three youths.
