A Man's Letter:
If a man should wr it e te Sa nta Claus with the simple faith that his children do, he would probably say s omething like this chiefs, so while they are still ob tainable and reasonable, I could use a couple of dozen nice sheer ones, (25c to 75c each). Dear Old Man— For all these years you have been filling the stockings of the universe. You have got a heap of glory out of it, and I don't begrudge you a bit. The folks are going to give me something this year, of course. They always do. But tell 'em, won't you that I am not collecting curios. I DO NOT WANT a new collar for the dog, a box of flowers, a box of candy, a bottle of perfume, or some nickel cigars. Rut there "are" things I do want. Some of them I must have. If 1 get them, they will save me money. (»tbers I should like to have, hut wouldn't buy for myself. If some body would only give them to me, it would bo great! So will you kindly give this list your attention old friend. I SHOULD LIKE. some new neckties; nobody ever has quite enough ties (50c to $1.50). And some SlliK SHIRTS—ev likes to have a few. ($3.50 to $5.) 1 could use a good sweater, ($1.50 to $7.50), or a knitted vest, ($5.) A silk auto scarf. ($1 to *2.) 1 really need some linen handker chiefs. It looks as thougl soon have to use cotton haiulker I am a candidate for admission into some new pajamas, ($1.50 to $3.50). As 1 sleep in a sleeping porch, I prefer the flannelette sort, ($1.50 to $3.) A HOUSE ROBE would be a big improvement on the old overcoat I wear around the house, ($5 to $7.50.) It is about time I had a new pair of GLOVES, but unless someone gives them to me. I shall probably go on wearing my soiled ones, ($1 to $2.50.) Everybody thinks he is harder on SOCKS than anybody else. I am. Some silk socks would certainly come in handy, ($50c to $1.50.) And if anybody wants to save me a nice bit of money as well as im prove my appearance I am a candi date for a NEW SUIT OF CLOTHES or a NEW OVERCOAT, (suits $13 to $35; overcoats $15 to $30.) man Yours hopefully, A MAN.
