They think that nothing can be which is not. comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, axe little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect," an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the Intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge! Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Clans! It would be aa dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, -except in sense and sight The eternal light with, which childhood fills tit world would be ex tinguished.' 'r ' . ; . ;. ' Net believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch, in all the -chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not eee Santa Claus, coming down, what would that prove? Ko . body sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign there, is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children ' nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of ' course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world. , You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, ro mance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond.' Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. thousand yearsfrom now, Virginia nay, ten times ten thousand ' years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood. ; mm i'M j 5?ou?ly, is felly. new one develnn especially when at ""SKBIS. vnn c " For vw fifty mtlrW:"1?'
