My Christmas P in Rouen p By Helen Lucy Vanderpoel-Jahnson, Eleven Yeavs Old. : i I am going to tell you about my Christmas in Rouen and how I saw Santa Claus. I lived in an old convent, oet of which the monks had been driven a little while before, but some used to crep In still, and it. gave one the creeps to see them suddenly appear, as one would suppose, through the wall, but there really wens a lot of secret passages placed in the wall i 0 where nobody would dream of there j Mrs. Bambini, ai Scr parlors, tio. being such things.

Sht to the large dining hall where wo took our meals. Of course. In the morn ing we had breakfast In our rooms. My mama and papa had the bish op's room, if you please, and I had the "ant re chumbre" (ante chamber.) You entered the convent through a gnat arched door, and In coming in and in going out you could see my window, which was very long. Now, I will begin and tell how I saw Santa Claus. Mama and papa had gone out to midnight mass, to the urand cathedral of Houen, and I was In bed (perhaps I forgot to add that my room opt tied into mama's through a gnat door) and the stockings wen- hung on -he; curtains (In mania's room) for fear j of burning at the fire place, because we had a very old one, built away j back in the twelfth century. (In Houi n they have the queerest coal 1 j ever saw. It is square and has lit-, tio round holes to let the tlann s i through, and it looks just exactly as though a whole lot of eyes were slai-j ing at you.) 1 Some people came up to wish me a happy Christmas (the fireplace was juts like the kind S. C. likes), when I; heard a light tip-tap on Ihe roof, then silence, then a kind of rustling, olid- Ing noise, and 1 think it was Santa Claus. 1 was so busy fighting my ! way through a thick line of girls that . I was just in lime to see bis cemt tails flying up the chimney. Santa Claus has a bt to d. ami that good old fellow never complains j of all the babies coming inte the; world. "The more the me-rrb'r." he j says, with his happy laugh. State 'f Ohio, fit y or TulMo. I.ucas t'ounty urn.
