OOL8!" said Mr. Simpson.
"Idiots!" he added. "Even
If they a?*e my own rela
'.ives!" he supplemented
with a dogged shake of hie
partially bald head.
Tho souvenir postal card
which called forth his op
probrious language had just
arrived.
"Look nt th!?, will you?"
He turned the card over
in bis fingers,.
"'Peace on earth, good
will to men!"' Mr. Simp
son read the Inscription.
Theo he turned lt over.
* 'We want you with ua
day after tomorrow for a
good, old-fashioned family
reunion around the festal
Christ man board!'" he read
tn three linea of handwrit
ing on the other aldo of the
card.
"There you are!" he ex
claimed wrathfully. "There
you are, doggone lt!"
He waved the card vio
lently around in the air at arm'a length
aa he continued muttering.
"They send you one of these paper
doiliea from a madhouse dining room,"
went on Mr. 8!rnpson to the listening
walla of the room of which he was the
only occupant-"with 'Peace on earth,
good-will to men' on ene aide, and on
the other an inyltbUon to take a six
hour trip out into the slushy country
for a rotten moal with a gang bf
people who drive me crazy at tho
thought of being related to, every
time I see 'em."
"Here I am," he said, regretfully
shaking hiB head over his hard lot in
life, "here I ara, planning that I'll be
?comfortable tor at least one Christ-,
maa, anyway. Family away in Florida
?for the winter; me here all alone, to
-do jUBt aa I like-and now along comes
IthlB-this summons to spend a day be
ing miserable!"
j Suddenly Mr. Simpson sat* up
straight in his chair.
I "By Jerry!" he ejaculated suddenly.
;"By jerry-what's to hinder me from
being tho martyr in the cause? What's
to prevent me vf rom putting an end to
thia dad-dinged practice-huh?
! "Suppose I don't go to thia Christ
mas reunion? Suppoae I atay home
here aid enjoy my day of peace on
earth in the way I want to? What
will happen?
'. "Why, next year there won't be a
8lngle, solitary soul of my relationa
that will get together in an affair of
thia kind. I'll have pointed the way
111 be the example thr/'ve been wait
ing to follow away from custom-and,
by Jerry. Ill bet you the thing will
spread, too!
"And I'll be responsible for It!"
added Mr. Simpson Joyously-"if I
ntny ?wgy, Jnst this once, from this
Christmas party I've been invited to!;
! "And think of the good I'm doing!
to other people, too!" he added. "How
grateful the publio will be to me for
pointing out the way to their own re
lease from this idiotic custom of sac
rificing themselves!
J "Why, I shouldn't wonder If there,
would be a statue erected to me as
the first man who stayed away from a
family reunion at thia holiday! I can
see it now, labeled: The People's:
Santa daua--He Gave Us What We,
Wanted Moat for Chrlatmas! "
i And so, in pleasant reflection upon
the perfection ot bia plan ae he had
carried lt out. Mr. Simpson's thoughts
ran until Christmas morning.
. It waa Mr. Simpson's idea to est his
Chrlatmaa dinner, ordered in from a
nearby restaurant, in the solitude of
his own homo, bare as lt waa of his
family
At one o'clock the waiter brought
In the heavy tray. Mr. Simpson super
intended the arrangement of Its con
tents ?n the table in the dining.room.
; And lt was Just one-fifteen, aa ha'
stood rubbing his hands nt the pros
pect ot eating alone on Christmas for
the first time in his life-when the
doorbell rang,
i "Doggone lt!" burst out Mr. Simp-)
son. "What's that?"
' For a moment he decided not to
open the door. Then he changed bia,
mind and weat downstairs, two at a
time. It might be some bad .news
from his absent family.
\ Ha threw open the portal-and stag-;
gored back Into the hall
: And after him* trooped a gay ly
ahouttng and laughing party of sixteen
-Mr. Simpson's relatives!
. f'We came to oat our Chrlatmaa din
ner here!" cried one cf hts aunts.
"You poor man-we knew you'd be
all alone I" gushed a first cousin.
, "We didn't want you to eat your
Chrlatmas dinner all by yourself,1
chortled another female relation, "rn
we brought ours here In baskets to
sat with yon!"
Mr. Simpson looked over the crowd
still streaming into his front hall. His
?Ups pursed tightly aa he led the way
tn the dining room. *
But all he said, unintelligibly to bia
?unexpected guests, v;aa: j
"Well, I guess they won't put up

One of the gema of present day Jour
nalism i8 the reply of the New York
Sun to the letter of a little girl. Vir
ginia O'Hanlon. who, not doubting the
editor's infallibility, demanded the
truth about Sant* Claus. Here la tho
editor's anawer
"Yes, Virginia, there la a Santa
Claus. He exlats aa certainly as love
and generosity and devotion exist,
and you know that they abound and
give to your lire vita highest beauty -
and Joy. Alas, how dreary would be
the world <t there were no Santa
Clsua! It would be aa dreary as if
j there ware no Virginias. There would
be no childlike faith than, no poetry,
oo romanceado make tolerable ?his ex
istence. We ahould have no enjoy
ment except in aenae and eight.. Tho
eternal light with which childhood
filia the world would be extinguish
ed. -
Not believe In Santa Claus \m
might as well not believe in fairies
You might get your papa to hire mah
to watch in all the chimneys- on
Christmas eve to catch Santa Clans,
but ?vpn If they did nq?? see Santa
Claus coming down what would that
prove?' Nobody sees Santa Clsua, but
that la no alan that there ia no fr in ta
Claus. The moat real things tn Ote
world ar? those thst neiihor children
nor men can see. Did you ever see
fairies dancing oh the lawn? Of
course not, but thst's no proof that
they are not there. Nobody can con
ceive or Imagine all the wonders
there are unseen and vaseeeble tn the
world.
You may tear apart the baby's rat
tle and ase what makes the nelse in
side, but there ia a veil covering the
unseen world which not the strongest
man nor even the united strength of
all the ..t rouges* men that ever lived
csa lift.
