Gifts Worth $15,000 Are
Brought to the Homes of
the Pobr by Public Ledger J
and Evening Ledger A 'tos
Supposo you had been a tiny little 1c K
yesterday morning, who all your Hto-
tlmo had been hearing things about a
wonderful pld gentleman who had his
home somewhere up 4n the heavens some
place. Suppose you had. been told -how ,
ho came down from the skies every 21th
of December laden with toys for all tho
little boys nnd slrls on this earth who
had managed to be aa good as sugar
candy throughout the year.
And suppose your prayer had been an- .
swered! Imagine your Joy and Inex
pressible happiness!
This la exactly what happened to thou
sands of youngsters yesterday morning. (
Thousands who had never in their little
lives received 80 much as a doll baby
na nn inal-mlflcnnt tov awoko yesterday
morning to find a beautiful Joyous Christ
mas present by their side, tho flrst testi
mony they had ever had that Santa was
a reality and not a myth after all.
Tho Public iXDOElt Santa Claus Club
was responsible for tho preserving of
their Illusions. Into the alleys and tene
ment districts of Philadelphia and thence
Into the overcrowded humanity-crammed
rooms of this city's poorer districts went
115,000 forth of Christmas gifts conveyed
thero by 68 Public LEliaEn and Eveh
incj LEDQEn automobiles. '"To the chil
dren from the children," that was how
the game was worked.
From all parts of tho city, and from the
State, too, and even from New York,
toys and dollies were sent to the store
house at CM Chestnut street when the
Editor of tho Public LEDciun'a Children
Page sent out the appeal For two weeks :
the gifts poured In like an avalanche and
MOO unfortunate children who would not
have had so much as a o-cent tin horn
otherwise received a package of gifts
which sent them into ecstasies of gles
and made the 25th of December a never-
to-be-forgotten one In tho meagre, calen
dar of their happy days.
