Clout] fairies, so It Is said, make all the Christinas gifts Santa Claua gives to the little ones each Christmas eve The season had been a busy one for the cloud fairies, for they had done their best to make up games and de sign toys that they might have many nlco new ones for Santa Clans. He was to visit them any minute, the rea son the queen had for begging her subjects to hurry with the work In hand. "Yes, dear queen," answered n girl fairy, dancing on the silver edge of a cloud: "I have nil the dolls on the south end of the rainbow, where his greatness St Nicholas of All Lands may view them without a moment's delay." "And I hare all the drums, bugles, horns, (lfes and other musical toys placed to great advantage on the north end of tho rainbow," said a gay fairy, Sapping Ills wings as he sat on the point of a stray starlet that had sot tangled In the clouds. Just as the fairies censed speaking there came through the frosty sir the sound of sleighbells aud the tooting of a bugle. "Ah, there he is now!" cried the queen. "Let's all go to greet him."

With a bound old Santa was on u cloud, bowing low before the queen and kissing her hand. Then he gathered a dozen or more fairies hi his arm and hugged them as a great boar would hug Its cubs. He laughed so loudly and so merrily that the Icebergs began to melt. "Now," he cried Joyously, "show me what you have made for my hosts of earth children. You know this time of year brings ma millions of letters, and I must hurry to my postoliico and. run through my mall." After looking at the Christmas toys Bantu Claus said he was more than pleased. Then, giving his order for 10,000 bags full of the beautiful things, he told the queen that he must go "But before I go," he said, "I must beg you to be prompt In tilling my or der. There can be no delay on Christ mas, you know, my dear queen. That would mean to break the heart of some of my little ones, and that would nev er, never do.

"That I might be In one of those houses on the earth and see old Santa Claus come down one of those chim neys with his pack ol his back and then to watch hlra fill the family stock lugs with toys and boubons. I'm sure It would be quite a treat." "Oh. but it happens only once a year." replied the other fairy "You'd get good and lonesome during the long wait* between two Christinases. I'm thinking.

All are furnished and equipped with tbe same completeness whether It la the linen cupboard, with Its pllea of nnpery: tho drawing room, with pret ty cnrpetn and tiny chins ornaments and pictures, or the nursery, where there is a high fender guard before the fire and a rocking horse for the baby to ride on.
