Telephone 23 Clovis, New Mexico m m f TnE strict order of thlnRS children should hnve hung up their stocking for Santa Clous on Doc. 0, unci re joiced In his gifts. For It was the feast of St. Nicholas, olios Santa Clous. He has nothing what ever to do with ChrlHtmus, and his visit then It an Anglo-Suxon anach ronism, which cnine from America fifty years ago. As their patron saint, children were taught to look to Nich olas for care and protection. To show the reality of his love for boys and girls, parents related thnt ou his eve he went up and down the earth re warding the good with presents, as he had In his life secretly thrown purses of gold Into the rooms of poor maid ens through the window. Children were taught to hang up their stock ings which parents acting as the saint's deputies tilled with sweets, apples, nuts and tors. In England the custom was oholiNhed with the wor ship of snlnts at tho Information, and was re-estahlluhed In the Ameri can gulso of Father Christmas In the middle of Inst century. Hut In Holland Snntn Clous makes his visit on tho right day, Dec. 5. In stead of stockings the Dutch children plnce their shoes, with straw In them for the donkey on which N'cholas rides, In front of the fireplace. In the morning good children find pres ents there, but the shoes of the naughty contain only a birch. The custom Is the same In France. In southern Austria, a young man, ar rayed as St Nicholas, In episcopal robes, visits each house and examines the children In their catechism. To those who answer well the saint's at tendant angola give fruit and sweets, while demons are admitted to terror ise the careless. On going to bed the children place boskets or dishes on the window sill for his future gifts. Catholic Germany furnlBhes the transi tion between the origin f Nicholas and modern Santa Onus. Arrayed as Father Christmas, lie visits each home and questions the children as to their past conduct. For the good there are cukes and fruit, and for all a lecture. ne then asks what presents they would like the Christ-child to bring at Christmas. London Dally Chronicle AM The' essage to armer!
