A WELCOME GUEST IN THE CITY t 1IU Arrival nml the Itc- ciptlon nt 111 * I ourt HU HcRiil Mir- nnil Jlnrtolou * cnlloc- lion nt 1IH llcailiiimrtvrgi Amontr the distinguished arrivals on ono of ycsterdny morning's trains from the north was an individual who is perhaps - haps bettor known and cortnlnly baa more friends in Omaha than nny ono of the many thousands who visit this city from ono year's end to another. That individual was Santii Glaus , jolly , rollicking old Saint Nick , and ho came just as ho has como year in and year out since the memory of man run neth not to the contrary , to see his odd self's warm friends , the boys and glris , and bring to them Iho countless Irons- Hies on which have boon centered for months their hearts' ' keen desires , and the possession of which will keep evergreen green in their acthoiy tin ebbing breasts tlio momorv of this patron s'lint of the little folks. While Santa is such n merry , gooJ- nntured old fellow , ho Is ono of the most jeMilous of beings , so far as the friend ship of the youngsters is concerned , nnd will no more tolerate a division of it than ho would part with his great fur co it or ono of tlio beautiful reindeer at tached to his immense sloitih load of toys , for ho could not got along without ono nny more than ho could without the other. Hut Santa will no\or forgot the little ones as long as they remember him , and ho will not pass from their memory until time fur till shall bo no moro and Chribtmnstido is no longer known on earth. Uut the holiday saint is not alone human in his feelings , for his require ments nro of the material kind as well , nnd it in just as neccsbiiry for him to have a place for a dispensing bure-ni as it is for him to hnvo the desire to distribute his limitless presents among the delighted members of the rising generation. While always on tlio alert to discover no\cities ' and 'to have everything of the latest and mo < < t apurovcd and desirable make , ho scorns to bo opposed to making changes in his stopping places , iind that is why it is that ho is making his Omaha headquarters this your with Ilaydon Bro.s. . jubt as lie did twelve months ago. The thousands of little folks who found him there last Christinas will iind him there again now ; that is , ho was there yesterday and last evening , but was coin- polled to leave for n few days to look after his little friends in some of the southern nnd eastern cities but will re turn and spend tlio week before the great holiday ivt that locition and por- sonallv biiDorlntcnd tlio distribution of the almost endlebs stock of piotty things that ho brought in with him yesterday and loft for the Omaha boys aiidgiils , and for their patents mid grown-up friends ns well. lie made a parade through the princi pal streets just after his arrivnl , just to lot his joung friends know that lie was here , and took aiound with him eigh teen great two horse loads of samples of what ho proposed to leave in Omaha , and even then ho was unable to show half of the things that ho has specially designed for Christmas presents for 1S92. Santa has begun to regard him self as something of a cotmnorcial pil grim , but cannot join the order of trav eling men that limits itself to this coun try , for ho is u tourist of the world , and has a host of friends in Europe and South Amciica , just as ho has hero in tlio United States. He does not believe in the usual sample room style of doing business for ho knows that not one-tenth of ills little friends could got in to see him , so ho has adopted the plan of going out in public , and lie lindb that ho is able to recogni/o his old ac quaintances so much bettor by daj light , for his sight ib failing a little and it is probable that by another year or two lie may have to use glasses. But the most pleasant thing about it all is the fact that the older ho gets the more ho thinks of the little folks , and that is why ho came a little earlier than usual thibycur in order to give them nlonty of time'to look over his stock and find just what they wanted , so that when ho ro- turns ho can hand tlio things right out and will bo able to attend to tnem all and no ono will bo slighted. Ho has taken the entire top floor of Ilaydon Bros. ' great emporium at Six- teoiith and Dodge sticots. and the hun dreds of youngsters who called there liibt night wore bewildered with the marvelous display , as indeed were the children to manhood and womanhood grown , who found just as much to please and interest them as did the moro re- cent graduates of the nursery. Ono couldn't begin to tell of all those won derful products of the inventor's mind and tlio skilled hand ot the meclinnic and artisan. There > vas a miniature electric motor niilway , complete in all the most minute details , oven to the dainty little motor , trolley and overhead wiro.'with tlio occasional Hushing of an electric spark , jubt as uon on tlio full- grown carh on the fttrcets a hundred times a day , yotthis little car isn't much blirt'er than your list , but it bu//ed around the track just as industriously as you pleaso. Then there was another railroad that was operated by a spring , with switches and depots , and all around were mechan ical toys of nil sixes , kinds and descrip tions Thorp wore dancers Unit pounded elf the livolicBt kind of jifjs , bears and other animals that would walk , turn around and soraich their heads or cut up antics of the funniest kind. There were dolls for the girls , and such \\atd- robcs us no dolls over had be fore. There weio tiny bedroom with beds , dressers , com- modcR and everything complete , ' and they were in all bi/.eb to suit dolls , big , and little. There were doll buggies. toy ' , , trunks , tables , dibhcs , cabinets , writing - desks with sliding or folding tops and - innumerable pigeonholes , musical toys from n piano to a jowshnrp , stovris , kitchen utensils , and everything on . wheels from a bicycle to a moving cir cus parade. There was everything that t over delighted a child's honrt , and it . boomed that for every old or familiar article there were a do/.mi now ones. But don't think that there ib nothing there for grown folks , for bo it knowi that under that roof is kept every' thing that man or woman wants llie only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder , No Ammonia ; No Alum.
