ery ol' Mr. Wilson.
Washington, Dec. S. - Woodrow
Wilson is so much better that he now
takes almost daily walks through the
streets about his residence, with no
other aid than that of a cano.
Those who have been surprised to
encounter the well known ligure say
that he really strides and does not
merely shulllc along., When ho left
the White Ilouso lie could not place
one foot ahead of" the other and had
to bo supported at every stop.
Ile has cons'.antly ridden in an au
tomobile for months, making trips
sometimes as long as forty milos. His
faco is ruddy and the lines that told
of lils suffering havo gone,
j Taken in connection with a speech
! ho made on Armistice Day from his
doorstep, with all bis old fire and
splendid choice of words, which re
vealed his volco strong as over, it is
evident that tho hermit period of tho
cx-Prosldcnt is about over. He still
denies himsolf to all but a few fa
vored visitors, and except for an oc
casional lettor, declines to bo drawn
into tho stream of public affairs.
But that he will continue to keep
out of it Is most unlikely. A realiza
tion that a mind so clear and so ac
tivo must force him Into tho arena
somehow is what makes the word
that Woodrow Wilson is walking out

IIIS Is n story of Inst 1
Christ mus day; nnd I will j
tell you right nway that lt
ended happily. But lt be- j
gins sadly. It was Christ- ;
mus day up nt tho North :
puk-, and as usual on tho j
day beforo Christmas, St. Nicholas
bud been hurried and rather grumpy.
Only this time, Mother Nicholas
thought to herself that bo was Just
a blt grumpier than she bad ever
known him. And nt suppertime she i
found that she was right.
Ile came Into the kitchen, closing i
his workshop door with n bang, and
sat down with all the little Nicholases
to bis porridge.
"Well, I've said lt beforo," he
growled, "but this time I mean it. The
children down there in the world will
get nothing from my pack this night.
It's timo they were taught a lesson."
All the little Nicholases gasped, but
Mother Nicholas only asked calmly:
"Why, what is tho matter now, fa
ther? After you've been working for
them tho whole your, you wouldn't
go and disappoint the poor dears
would you?"
"Yes, I would," declared St. Nleh- t
obis, swallowing his porridge In great j
gulps, and pretending that ho was not i
n saint at all. "Half of them go around
saying that there Isn't any St. Nicho
las, poking fun at me, aira laughing
In their sleeves. And the other half
think it makes no difference whether
they are good children or not, I'll fill
their stockings Just tho same. It's a ?
thankless Job, I tell you. And I'm j
too old a mon for lt. Sol"
"Come," said Mother Nicholas, sooth
ingly, "here is n plate of griddle cakes.
When you have eaten you will seo
things differently."
"No, when I have eaten I shall go
to bed. That's where an old fellow
like me belongs, nn old fellow who
children don't bellove In.'.'
Mother saw that he was determined,
and that thero was nothing to do for
lt, since griddle cakes wouldn't help.
So she put her finger to her Hps to
motion the children silent, and went
on quietly about her work. And when
St. Nicholas hud finished his supper,
bb did roll away to hedi only telling
tho little Nicholases to !>o sure uo hang
their stockings, for they luid boen good
children nil the year and still bb)loved
In bim.
Tho minuto the door closed behind
him the little Nicholases burst Into
excited chatter. "Oh, what a pity I
Those poor children 1 Surely there >
must bo sonni good ones ! Oh dear,
what fun will Christmas bo to us If
nil the children in the world down
thero are unhappy !"
.'What indeed I" Mother Nicholas
shook her head and looked often nt

olas could already be heard snoring.
"And tho reindeer!" cried tho old
est boy, "what will they do without
their yearly exercise? It seems ns
though father might.have gone, If only
for their sakes."
Mother Nicholas thought so, too.
And nt that minute they heard the
reindeer's little hoofs beating on tho
hard snow crust at tho door. Wise lit
tle beasts l St. Nicholas had nover
delayed tho Ohrlstnuis-Eve Journey so
long before, and so boro they were
to save him the troublo of going for
thom. The Nicholas children felt that'
they never could face the poor llttlo
reindeer's disappointment.
But what was Mother Nicholas do
ing so busily over thero by the cup
board? Tho children looked In amaze
ment. It was seldom that mother
loft the snowhouse ot any time of day.
And here she was, aftor dark, and
Christmas Evo, too, putting on ber
hood and cape, and pulling on her
gauntlets 1
"Are you going to drive the rein
deer back to the stables?" asked tho
oldest boy. "Oh, please, let me. Fa
ther always lots mo, you know."
Mother shook her head. "I'll not bo
driving thom back to the stables un? I
ttl this night's work ls done," she said,
[i'll you're awake when wo get back,
you m ny do lt as always."
How the children stared I "Was little

culled over her shoulder and was away j
out of the door almost before they !

heard the scampering of tho reindoor j

then Just tho stillness of the North
That was last Christmas Eve. And
If you ask any child who lay awake i
to seo St. Nicholas, and pooped out
with ono oyo, nil the time pretending
to be fast asleep, lie will toll you that
it wasn't St. Nicholas he saw at all.

it, oven In bis younger days. Uer
* work was well (lone, tool But in
spite of the early hour, she found the
children and her husband walting for
her. St. Nicholas welcomed her bnck
more affectionately than the children.
"I woke in tho middle of the night,"
he said, "out of such a horrid dream
j all about crying children and sad
I mothers. Bless you, good wife, for
