Santa Claus Is Sick.
(A year's subscription to The Tupelc
Journal to the party first (riving the
aurhor's name of the below poem)
Santa Claus is pick abed.
And yet the time draws near
That he should his presents give
To all he holds most dear.
Poor Santa Claus, how sad is he,
That such should be his fate.
That be to join in Christmas glee
Will have another year to wai*.
But there is something else
Which much more troubles his mine
To 'tend his deer and distribute his
Where could he some one find?
About this he is much distressed,
When lo, an idea gives him cheer,
Why, Clifton's is the very place,
The place "I was last year."
With thio in vipw hp etraicrht arm
A messenger to ask,
If the above named firm would take
bis wares
As they did on Christmas last.
With the answeryes, his mind at rest,
He quickly dispatched his sleigi
and deer,
And away to Clifton's his whole out
fit sent,
And this occured this year.
And so you see our stock this year
Is of Santa Claus' selection;
And surely of all Christmas stocks,
His own should be perfection.
So come, one and all, both great an<]
It's here for your inspection.
