Tom knew this was true, for qne day, at the little boy's house. Tern asked him to bring out his toys, and the little boy answered, "I haven't any toys." Tom could hardly believe that there was anybody in the world without even one toy, so he went home and told little sister about it, and together they planned to bring the little boy a toy from the beautiful Land of Christmas. Mother was willing for them to go, so hand in hand, on the day before Christmas went Tom and little sister. They did not kno wthe way, so they asked a feathery snowflake which came and lighted saucily on the end m " A.U. ..... u C T C iy Hiuniian, vyciiu jvu nilgai On the tip of my warm finger. Tell me, where'a the Land of Christmas?" And it answered. Oh, so softly; "Little boy and girl, politely Ask the tree that shinea so brightly If you seek the Land of Christmas." The children continued their jour ney, and at last they arrived at the great tree all shining brightly across the white snow. When the children asked the way to Christmas Land, thus the shining tree responded; "Step into my trunk so hollow, Take the Magic Wand, and follow The Shining a?ath to Chrastmas So they stepped into the hollow trunk, where they found the magic wands. Tom chose a silver wand with a star at the end of it, and Little Sis ter a golden one, with a white dove at its end. When the children stepped out of the tree, they were surprised to find themselves grow very small indeed. And this they noticed if the magic wands were held aloft, the children remained small, but if the wands were lowered, the children grew large again. The children knew that in the Land of Magic they must obey all the great commands, so they started down the Shining Path, holding their magic wands high in the air. They journeyed on and on and at last they reached a great wall, and when they looked up they saw beautiful lights which spelled the words "Christmas Land" over the tiny gateway! Tom reached up and pulled the bell rope, and out upon the frosty air rang the sweetest chimes you ever heard. Soon the tiny gates opened and Tom and Little Sister were glad that they were small enough to slip through! And oh, such a beautiful land as it was! Every tree was a Christmas tree all laden with Christ mas gifts. The music boxes were play ing, the horns were tooting, the dolls were saying "Mamma" and "Papa," the Jacks-in-the-box were jumping out then hiding again, and everything seemed to be saying, "Take me! Take me!" It was hard for the children to select just one toy for their little friend. They skipped about for a long time, examining the toys. Finally, on the top branch of one of the tallest trees, there hung a box tied with a big red bow. On one side were printed the words "Magic Lantern." "The very thing!" said Tom, but how could he bring down the box from the top of a tree so tall for, as you remember, the children were vary small. Just then a little breeze whis pered in Tom's ear: JEJVELRT The Gift That's Sure to Please Anyone The most fastidious person is sure to be pleased with a piece of jewelry for Christmas when nothing else would appeal to them. W e have in stock this year every thing that a first class jewelry store carries. Women are always delighted to have a lasting gift something they may adorn themselves with, and nothing so answers the purpose as a diamond ring, wrist watch, brooch, bracelet, necklace and chain, and countless small articles in gold or silver. , Men too like certain pieces of jewelry such as a watch and chain, cuff links, cravat pins, charms, belt buckles, etc. Call and see my line. 7. C. LE WIS, Jeweler Hitrdimburi, Ktntudy O "Little fariea, tell my why I see you sit so still and sigh; 1 will get trie box for you I Then the little breeae blew into a strong breeae and flew into the top of the tree. There he tugged and palled and puffed, until at last the string had to let go and down fell the box, red bow and all, into a soft bank of snow. The children were over-joyed when the box containing the magic lantern was safe in their hands) Then they went back along the Shining Path, and very soon reached the great Shining Tree Into its hol low trunk they went, and left the magic wands, and as soon aa they stepped out into the daylight again, they found themselves as large aa ever. They ran on and on, nutil they finally reached the little boy's window. The setting sun was painting every thing red and orange and gold, and when they peeped in, there lay the poor boy on his little cot, and his empty stocking hung from the back I of a CnSir The chair stood near the window, and on the note that waa pinned to the stocking Tom read the words "Dear Santa Claus: If you should hap pen to have just one toy to spare for me, won't you please leave me a magic lantern?" Tom softly opened the window and placed the box with its precious toy on the chair near the empty stocking. Then the children slipped away to their home, where they told Mother their secret. And all would have gone well, of the lantern had not been a magic lantern, for in some way it had taken a picture of Tom, and another of Lit tle Sister. So the next morning the happy little boy hat in hia chair op posite the screen which hia poor, hard-working mother had put up. To gether they watched eagerly for the first picture. And would you believe it, that tell tale machine showed, first,' Tom's smiling face, and then Little Sister's dimpled one!
