It's a possibility unpleasant to con
template that so frank and honest a
gentleman as Uncle Santa Claus
should be made an innocent party to
impositions upon the generous. But
every year it happens that children
of a few dishonest parents are induced
to write deceptive letters to Santa
Clausand get those letters pub
lished. A recent specimen mailed to
Santa in care of The Journal
read:
Dear Santa Claus
I will write and tell you what I want
for Christmas. I want a doll and buggy,
and that is all for me.
But will you please sent my mama a
pare of shoes and rubbers because she
can not buy them. She takes shoes nom
ber 7 EE, and rubbers nomber 8. Please
bring them because we will not get any
if you do not bring them.
I have- three siters beside me and to
brothers. We have not anybody work

MONDAY EVENING,
mama's shoes and rubbers that in
quiries were made of the Associated
Charities.
~ "Professional ?" replied an officer of
the Charities association, after he had
examined his record. "I should say
as much. Why, this family has been
on our books for thirteen years! TJhey
are chronic dependents, not sufferers
from sickness or misfortune. As the
little girl writes, they 'have not 'any
body working,' hot even the big
brothers or sisters, and they never
will have so long, as Santa Claus or
other good people can be 'worked'
for free supplies.
"Tes, there's a little girl in the
family who's called by the name
signed to that letter. But I don't
blame her. She probably wrote what
she was told to with no idea of fraud.
"I'm glad to say, tho." continued the
informant, "that the number of poor
people that will take a mean advan
tage of Old Santy are very few. I t
happens more often a. 'Santa .Claus
letter* is misleading simply because
it is written and mailed by some child
without the knowledge of his parents.
The parents are not unable to gfve
the little writer proper gifts, they
even intend to do so but he thinks
that he's writing necessary informa
tion to a live saint with a big beard.
"I do hope that none of your read
ers will make this incident an ex
cuse for selfishness it is only a reason
for investigation."
Associated Charities' Work.
This case serves to illustrate exactly
the difference between unintelligent
and discriminating charity. It is %o
reduce to a minimum the operation
of schemes like the above and to en
courage the deserving needy that the
Associated Charities is organized.
"We have many cases of genuine
need," said Secretary J. F . Jackson
to-day, "and people who want to give
somebody a really good Christmas
should remember that we can direct
the effort where it will do the most
good. The deserving poor are the
persons who keep their distress to
themselves and they, suffer more than
the professionals who make capital
out of their need. It is our business
to know who are deserving, and we

GOLD IN THEIR ISLAND
ONLY HEIGHTENS FEELING O F
ISLE O F PINES LAND OWNERS
AGAINST TRANSFER TO CUBA.fi
The report that gold has been dis
covered in the Isle of Pines has grati
fied Minneapolis^owners? of plantations
in that island, but has also increased
their indignation !against the proposed
transfer of the island, frp the United
States to Cuba. The $oeal investors
have Just, received frbhv Secretary
Charles Raynard of the Isle of Pines
company a circular requesting them
to dispatch personal protests to the
Minnesota senators against the rati
fication of the transfer treaty.
* W. R. Miller, the Nicollet avenue
photographer, who was the first of the
Minnesota exploiters in the isle, feels
especially Indignant towards United
States Minister, Squires whom Mr.
Miller described, as an "arch traitor"
and a "double-dyed villain." Minister
Squires came over from Havana last
spring, examined the island, conferred
with, the Americans that own three
fourths of all the real estate, and b%-
:came fully informed that these Amer
icans desired to keep the island under
Uncle Sam's authority not, as Mr.
Miller says, for commercial reasons
the Cuban taxes will be lighterbut
from motives of national pride. All
the 5,000 native residents.of the island,
except the alcalde or mavor, were of
the same mind. Yet, as the Ameri
cans feel, Mr. Squires failed to exert
himself against the intended transfer.
you
Commercial conditions both In Cuba
and the isle will be improved by the
new reciprocity treaty. Minneapolis
has already profited in prospect. Fif
teen-cent Cuban cigars will be sold
here next month at the rate of two for
a quarter, and sugar at local grocery
stores will cost one cent less for every
five pounds.
Backache is almost immediately re
lieved by wearing one of Carter's
Smart Weed and Belladonna Backache
Plasters. Try one and be free from
pain. Price 25 cents.

else. We have a host of.'things of beauty" in our Furniture Department, suitable for

One important fact, and it is a fact, for we are hearing it continually from custom-
ers^ our prices on furniture area long ways under prevailing prices. All you have to

certainly pay you if you have furniture to buy. *
