He went up to his room to remove

Afterward Mr. Qennlster played cook
and made the coffee. Then the two
breakfasted together with Noah and
his wife, for guests, standing between
them on the table.
But It was after breakfast that the
fun really began. Evidently Willie
had never seen tenpins before, so Mr.
Qennlster set them up and showed
him how to play with them. And Wil
lie enjoyed the companionship so
much that after that he would not
play a'.one with anything!

And the mnld departed, mnrvellng.
Oh, but Willie had a royal time that
day, and Mr. Gcnnister had some good

for a moment lie was inclined to turn
about and go back empty-handed as
he had come. Then he thought of the
child's delight when he Joel Qennls
ter had been so absurdly mistaken
for Santa Claus, and he went In.
Mr. Qennlster submitted to the push
ing and hustling of the holiday-humored
crowd until he had succeeded in
buying a Noah's ark, a box of ten-pins
and a flag. Then to add to his discom
fort the sudden thought came to him
suppose the child had awakened and
was screaming himself into fits? or
suppose a spark from the blazing logs
should set Are to the house? There
upon he made his way out and hurried
home, feeling much relieved when he
had let himself in and found all as
quiet and ns safe as when he had gone
out, an hour before.
And now he really had to do the
work of Santa Clnus. Again he visit

himself of the little limp stocking, he
returned to the Areelile to All It, when
he discovered that even now he had
nothing suitable to put in! It was ab
surd! Whnt sort of things did they
put into stockings, anyway!
So he thrust in the flag, with Its
stick extending far up In the air, and
he poked Noah and some other of the
nrk's inhabitants into that seemingly
bottomless abyss, and then he took
back the still limp stocking to its hang
ing place, put the ark and box of ten
pins near it on the foot of the big bed,
after which Mr. Qennlster himself re
tired. When he awakened next morning

There Is much work in the orchard
that can be done in winter. Among
other things the blighted limbs of the
pear tree may be cut off and burned.
This is especially necessary if any of
the blight is still in the sap wood.
Later Investigations seem to show
that limbs that have died of blight
are really not dangerous, the fungus
having also died. The danger is iu
the sap wood that is still affected, but
ia still alive. In that the disease
germs are kept alive and are ready
to be transported to other trees when
