Preparations foi tho calebtation ol
Christmas have about been corn;
and by midnight the final purcbases
will have been made, the trees trimmcd
and everything be iu readtness to
gladden tbe hearts of the little ones at
tho break of the moi row. It is gen?
erally agreed that Santa Claus will
make his rounds tonight in an airship,
instead of the sleij?h drawn by ' eight
tiny reindecr." Hence, instead o!
hearing tbe tinkling bells and t'hc paw
ing of the little hoofs, tbe ?latter of an
fteiiti fpropellei will, it ii bxptaoUsd,
break tbe stillness of !h_ mglit. ItM
hoped thia bistoric "jolly old elf wil
rniss no little .-no iu bb noctoroal
rounds, and tbat all will expcr.onee a
happy Christmas. A paper ln a
neighborlng city a few days ago oa
tained ft letter to Santa Ciaus wr.tlcn
by a lisping cigbt-year old girl Ihe
contiding ehild tell- Santa not t.) bring
hor dolls or other toys this Christmas,
but in their stead to have her seen
year-old sistcr in the sleigh with him
when ho visits her hou.e tonight. The
little sister referred to was kidnappi'd
last Junc while on her way from ecbool
and the ehild who wrote the letter baa
been praying for ber retiirn ever aince.
It may be too lato to send lettera to
Santa to urgo tbe grant of tbe littli
girl's request, but innumeial.l,
grams can be flashed to tbe ehildren'_
old friend not to disapoint bis little
Christmas day falling on Sunday
tliis year, Monday willbe observed as a
holiday. Tho Christmas, of all tbe
nolidays, is' tho most generally observed
in the south and this year will ba DO
exception to the rule. All tbe govern?
ment, stato and city ofBeea will hc
closed as will also tbe banks, manufac
toriesj tho market, and most of tbe
business bouses, while tbe postollkc
will observo Sunday hours. Family
reunions will bc many and the Christ?
mas dinner will be tbe feature of the
day. Many Alexandrians wbo are now
engaged in business elsewhere are al?
ready at home to take part in tbe fea
tivitiea of the day. The usual number
of fire crackers will be exploded, but
the firing of pistols. guns and cannon
will be restrictod. Most of the saloons
will closo after noon.
