around her and tele

cousin who was going
to acco in uany her
downtown and suld: "I think it's
a good Idea to get one's Christinas
xhopping ull done several weeks in ud
viinoc. You get much butter uttontlou
In the shops, and you muke it uusler
for the poor tired salesgirls."
"Hut," asked the cousin, "do you
know what you want so fur uheud of
"Ves, here's my list. Look at It while
I button my cloves."
"Handkerchiefs, dresses, waists,
gloves, veil whew, for whom are all
"My maids," answered Mrs. Gould.
"A horn, three dolls, a drum, pulr of
skates surely the muids cun't use
thi'sc?" asked the cousin.
"The toys are for my washerwom
an's children and their little friends.
I always give them presents, since God
hasn't blessed me with children of my
own. Come, the car is at the door."
Outside a shop window In the busiest
street of the city stood little Lena
Swift. Around her shoulders she wore
a tattered shawl, aud her hands were
snuggled under it to prevent them
from freezing. She stood with her
face pressed close to the glass.
"My," she said "half aloud, "ain't It
cold for the end of November, and
oh, ain't thut a beautiful doll. I won

tears came to her eyes as she went on
musing. "He ain't never come sine
mother died. Aunt Itosie says she has
no money for nonsense and such, and
she says there ain't no Santa Claus
"Move on little one," said a police
man coming up to Lena and tapping
her shoulder with his club. Lena ran
off half fearfully, half reluctantly, and
at that moment spied a large Santa
Clnus who stood on the opposite cor
ner ringing a bell and asking the pas
sersby to drop a coin In the bowl for
a Christmas dinner that would be giv
en on the twenty-fifth of December at
the Wayfarers' lodge.
The child made a dash across the
street to tell Santa Claus what she
wanted him to put In her stocking,
when she received a terrific blow from
behind. Then it seemed as though she
were falling falling down down.
Then a pair of strong arms lifted her
and she heard a soft voice which
seemed to come from a great distance
say "Smith, Is she much hurt? Poor
Lena awoke next morning and found
herself in a soft white bed in a room
so beautiful that her first thought
was "I must be dead and this sure is
heaven." A white-capped nurse bent
She tried to glance about, but the
pain shot through her head and made
her close her eyes.
Then Lena experienced something
that she hud not felt since her mother
had died a caressing touch and a
Lena had been badly hurt and it
took several weeks for her to get even
well enough to sit up In bed. Christ
mas morning dawned cold and clear,
and the child was allowed to see what
Santa had brought her.
At the foot of her bed stood a gor
geous Christmas tree, such as she had
often seen in the great toyshops, but
never In the wildest flights of hei
fancy dreamed of possessing. On the
floor beside the tree, In a tiny little
wicker chair, sat the big doll with
the "shutting eyes" that she had seen
in the shop window. Then the beau
tiful lady came over to her bed and,
putting her arms around Lena, said
T)on't you think Santa Claus has been
good to you?"
'Are they all for me? What would
Aunt Rosle say? She thinks there
ain't no Santa Claus."
"Tour Aunt Rosle knows you are
with me and she says It's all right.
Yes, they are. all for you. There are
no other children here. This Is the
first time the real Santa Claus has vis
ited me, and this is the happiest Christ
mas I have had since I was a child,
"What did Santa bring you?" asked
Lena, returning Mrs. Gould's embrace.
The happy woman took a mirror
from the table and held it in front of
the child. Lena looked into it and
saw a face so clean and white that
she scarcely recognised it, framed by
a mass .pf brown curls, and a pair of
large blue eyes that returned her gase
"It's me," she said.
"Yes; it's you. Santa Clans baa
brought me you, and Aunt Boal Mid
may keep you." .
