The man who waits for building material de
mand to slacken, for prices to recede, will lose much
in profits and possibly pay even more in the end.
There is profit in building. Otherwise
people would not build. With all prices
high the profit remains. Why wait?
It is our earnest advise that you build now
that you come to us for your estimates.

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
