J-i j- . t -HV 1 Story of the I Christmas Stocking KAl!S uiul years stock Inc were not It mix on Christmas eve nn we hnnn litem now. No one ever heard oC sueli u thintf nit hanging up a Btwklim (or Christmas Rifts. Anil if children had thought of such h thing they would have siild, "What a foolish I'Ihk ! A storking wouldn't hold half I the thing wu want." So ttiu children tliniuhiiut fh v-rlil placed crtx-ks, hlK bnu tmftlns, mil Copper kettles I 'it llii hearth on Christmas eve and I left imtex In them tailing Sniitii to ! Illl thfiu to the hrlm. Kach year the i children left larger cssels to he tllli'il, oh ! Iiln-u Wt larger vessels to he HI led. I la the (front while north Santa's reindeer no longer pranced and pawed, Impatient to bo off on Christmas evo, us they oiicp hud done. They liintg their heads und a tired look came Into their hlg brown eyes, fur they re iiicinliored how heury tlio loud had grown nail how tunny more trips they were forced to iniiko year hy year. SI. Nicholas no longer rented lloW tlirnuuh the summer nioiiihs, as ho oni'c hint done, hut Jalimcd evorry 'lay throughout the year, and ofien he hullt iiijs Into Into tin night, for n greut many gifts had , to hp male to till the haskets Hint the greedy children left. The twinkle left his merry eyes, and he no lonKer sang uhont his work, for he was nail anil thought of Hie time iliat would come when he could no Pinner build enough presents to go around. I.nle on I)ecpinher day St. Nicholas stepped from his workshop Into th deep snow. Facing the south, he Wretched out his tired arms nnd called : "Hear, oh hear, children of the earth, my loved ones, cun you not see ymi are heVomlng selfish and that your (treed y deuinnds are too (treat a task, even for St. Nicholas, king of the Christmas spirit ? Can't you see, my children, that you are killing the spirit of Christmas?" His chin sank upon his chest and tears glistened In his kindly eyes. A soft white snowfliike fluttered down and nestled against his cheek, and a tiny voice whispered Into his ear: "gnnta, I will help you." "Who are your asked St. Nicholas "I am a snow fairy," answered the tiny voice. "As my sisters and I have danced about the air we have often swirled about your sleigh on Christ inns eve, and have seen the (treat .loiids yiiii hiivi always cnrrled anil how tired you have looked." "What, ( what, shall I do?" ashed Santn. "Just go about your work as usual," answered the fairy "I and all my sisters will help yon." "Oh, thank you thank you," cried St. Nicholas. And the fairy floated out among the oilier snowflnkcs. As the children went about the snowflakes whirled around them, and It seemed as If they henrd the chant ing of tiny wires, and as the snow flakes nestled against their ears they seemed to sing: "Just a stocking hang a stocking up on Christmas eve." "Just a stocking Just a stocking," rang through the hearts of the children on Christmas eve. And In place of leaving the great vessels as they once had done they Just hung up their stockings. Some children were too selfish to hear the song of the snowflnkcs nnd left the great baskets as they always had done. Hut when they saw the great Joy the unselfish children had In their gifts and how contented and happy they were these selllsh ones were nshntiied, und they, too, begun to hang up only their Workings when Christmas eve nunc round. When St. Nicholas found stockings In place of the great baskets and barrels the twinkle came iil-kIii Into bis Ih uuhlng eyes, bis cheeks grew red, and be sang as be drove through the merry sin of snowflakes. With Just stockings in II 1 1 St. Nicholas bail time to rest, and he grew strong and well, and the spirit of Christmas lived. So this Is why nowadays we hang up our stockings on Christmas eve. All this we are told by a writer, who learned It from a Christmas fairy. Clovis Furniture & Undertaking Co. 203-210 - 212 and 214 South Main Street Careful, painstaking care in every detail C. V.
