for an hour or so. Mothers gnd fath- :

with hunting. After the hand hart

arrived in the room. He was a jolly
looking Santa Claus, and his smile
caught the children at once.
He was dressed in-an ermine trim
med robe of red. having decided that
fugs were too worm for this trip, and
had left fits reindeer at home. He
came out on a trolley car, and as there
was no chimney to the room, he made
hi* entrance through the door. He sta
tioned himself near the tree, and talk
ed to the children. They clustered
about him, end he seemed tickled to
death to see the many small boys and
