We call down upon bis head the wrath of all right-thinking men Would the world's bard heart turn soft each year amid the snows and blows of winter, semi I rig rays of glad news into each dark spot, if there we're no Kanta Claus? Would grim-faced gargoyles, the buccaneers of business, cease their warfare against their fellows and try M/fumhn' right the wrongs they have detailf there were no Santa Claus? Would slinking servants of sin lay aside I heir tawdry tinsel and accept for on«e the things of the spirit and the tidings of righteousness, if there were no Hantu Claus? Would war-mad millions halt in their slaughter to kneel before tiny sprigs of evergreen, their death-deal ing engines Idle for once, If there were no Hanla Claus? Would starved little children with pinched and piteous faces laugh with glee over bountiful dinners and beau tiful dolls and marvelous toys, If there were no Hantu Claus?

Of 'Cherry wood, and with its leather upholstery patched and tarnished, it is not an attractive piece of furniture, but it is one with genuine historical interest.
