"'Wulchoo got in there, anyway?' he asks her. "She tells him, with a grlmaee and very properly, that It's none of htg business. And she adds somethinr ihout foil's that 'rubber.' "'Hut, any, g'wan und toll me whnt choo got in'there. won't you?' he tries again, wheedlitigly. "Whereupon his wlfr r:ai:es r.ie:it'-v.i of that feline that rn.'t an untimely ead tin.'.agh curiosity.

'I might hav known all the time that It's a shavlnv outfit. That's exactly whui it is, fr,r a sure thing.' "However, his wife niOBt carefully pd justs her side combs aud quite re frains from talking.

Neither Is it known Just where he was. born, nor Who his parents were, but they must have been eminently respectable people, for everybody nowadays claims kin with him. He Is the onlv untitled person whom nobody calls "Mister, and he is a bachelor of excellent re pule. Although he gives away more at Christmas than Mr. Carnegie and Mr Rockefeller ever thought of giving, he is not classed with the millionaires. Still he shows a preference for that class and he puts more In their stock ings than he puts in the stockings of the poor. Perhaps he has a taste for fine hosiery. Some bachelors do. In any event, the fact remains that the rich get more out of hltn than the poor do. Maybe he is not altogether to blame for that. Anyway he doesn't ride around in an automobile. This may he because he wants to save more to give away. At the same time he doesn't ride in the street cars. So there you are. hanta i iaus is tne only truiv re ligious person,, for he never asks any body what church he belongs to before taking up his stocking to fill It. Neither does he care a continental about polities, and be never votes lie is especially fond of children, and the children are so dead stuck on htm that they want him to come aronnd every day In the year. Their parents, how ever, don't feel so much that way about It, and Santa Clans kindly con siders their feelings in jthe matter. He knows enough not to be anxious to work a good thing to a frazzle. Nobody knows where Santa Clans lives fn the summer, also the spring i:id fall and most of the winter, but wherever it is It must be a healthy place, because he always shows up at Christ mas looking so fat and jolly that really he ought to advertise the locu tion and take in boarders. There Is one thing certain. If he did there wouldn't be any "No -Children-Taken" signs around the establishment. Santa Onus confines his attention almost exclusively to mankind, the lower animals, except the reindeer having no puli with him whatever This is a well-known fact in natural history, which may lie proved by pic tures of Santa Clans and his holiday turn-out coming in over the snowy roofa. When Santa Clans dies there will be the biggest funeral ever heard of, but i here Ir not much likelihood of that event ever happening as long as there are any children alive. When they are all gone Santa Clans will go too, for what's the use of his monkeying with grown-ups? .A .w-v. Ail WHY HE SPANKED THE CHILDREN How the Settler Prepared tht Young Ones for Christmas, On the morning of the day before Christmas I dismounted at tbe door of a North Dakota cabin to inquire the whereabouts of a man living in that neighborhood, and Hie sounds from xithin told nie that one of the child- en was being spanked. When the Spanking had been concluded the set- ler opened the door end Invited tne In. I saw nine children standing up In l row, and the tenth one sitting down n the other side of the room. , The nan thought some explanation should te made, and he Raid: "i 's the way I do every Christmas time, and I had Jus' begun when you rode up. Can you wait till I have spanked the other nine?'' "Of course, but may I ask why you do it? They look to Tito to be nice, well behaved children." "They are a:' good children as you will find In the state, sir; but the spanking must go on." "Yes. the spanking must go on," added the wife. I couldn't say any ti.re, of course, and I went out to the i.'e and waited. The nine were railed tip one after an other and put through the machine, and then the man. who was breathing hard from his exertion, joined me at tiie gate and siid: "There, the last one of 'em has been licked, and now MI show you where Itrown lives." "Thanks, but would ynu take It amis If I asked what your ten child ren had done to d' perve punishment?" "You may aisk. sir. and I will ex plain." he replied. "They hadn't done nothing. I was biking 'em so they wouldn't expect any Christmas pre euts In their stockings to-night!" Woman By MA It OA RE T STEXCER TELL you we ought to cut It out this year," said the hard up hus band. The Christmas wom an put lioih bunds on his shoulders. "We can't cut out Christ mas, dear," she told him. gently. "But that five dollars which my broth er gave me on my birthday is going to cover every cent I spend. They'll be Just little remembrances." "That's It," he an swered, impatiently. "You'll keep it up, one way or another, aud at the last min ute I'll feel mean If I don't get into Ihe game and squandor a lot of money on presents." lie closed the door and went away. By the time he had boarded the tar for town he knew thut she was fight. But t he Christmas woman didn't know that he was thinking this. She was busy lu her own room, where, on a work table, lay a white shirt waist pattern stumped wilh a graceful design for embroidering. She had bought it for 50 cents, marked down from one dollar because it was the last. Her plan was to transfer its deBign to other pieces of cloth which she had In the house ami so evolvo three shirt waists, stumped for em broldeting, to bestow on the thre nieces, who liked to embroider. Aud all for 50 cents! But the Christmas woman had Jus begun work, trying bravely to forgi the hard up husband's last words when she was called downstairs to see the perfectly discouraged person whoso plaint was after this fashion "Oh, dear! It's nothing to me how- many shopping days there are to Christmas. 1 can't buy a thing. "But, my dear," said the Christmas woman, "think what you can make out or that luxurious box of pieces you showed me the other day! Thereupon she poured forth , many suggestions about aprons aud holders and shoe bags und top collars enough to Inspire a church bazar. Oh, yes, but everything you make costs a little for ribbon or something." me perroctiy uiscou raged person con cluded, at the end of her depressing call, "i wIhIi Christmas was past! Then she went straight . borne pulled out her box of pieces, pondered over the Christmas woman's sugges tions, schemed out a plan for saving a little money here and there, and then fell to work on her Christmas presents with new courage. But that Christmas woman didn't know this. She was getting at her own work again. ibis time she worked for fully five minutes undisturbed, than another visitor claimed her this time the tlred-to-death woman, who couldn't get away from her teething buby to go shopping, or to take one stitch on Christmas presents. "Give me your list, and I'll shop for yon," the Christmas woman volunteered. "Mercy! .0.7 Mujr See llu It Tab.a U.dIm t Urullip.

But the Christinas woman didn't know this.

"Why, keeping rheeiy Is one kind of giving! And at least you can write Christmas letters." "Why, who cares for those?" was the cynical answer.

But the Chrlhtmas woman didn't know this. 8hp had gone back to her room for th third time to find her woik table empty. In vain ahe scan bed for the shirt-waist cloth.
