25 of each year and glad dens the heart of children rich or poor by mysteriously leaving to them the very things they most want In spite of all attacks Santa Claus the real Santa Claus is both and young His pictures show to us a jolly fellow with a beard suggesting the venerable twinkling eyes bespeaking bounding youth And young ty feeling and action if not in years e must be to get over all the world night without missing one house in which lives a deserving child He is different in every country ranging In years from the beautiful Christ child that the good children of France adore to the jolly old fellow to whom the American youngster vows allegiance Dut it is not in this sense that the writer means to depict Santa Claus as both young and old It is from a his torical standpoint that the comparison is made Santa Claus as we know him in this country is less than a century old but the real Santa Claus the original of them all goes way back to the remote third century His present name Santa Claus or Kriss Kringle is derived from St Nicholas the very incarnation of all that was good and generous St Nicholas destined to be wor shipped in various forms by the chil dren of scores of centuries was born in Patara a tpwn of Lycla in Asia Minor From his earliest days he Noelwho survives old hone The Ruulan St Nicholas showed a religious inclination that destined him to take a high place in the church As a young man he entered the monastery of Sion and In time he abbot and later bishop of Myra His sanctity and learning made him shine even in the most illustrious company and he was one of the most notable figures at that wonderful gath Bring of 318 bishops who met at Nicca in 318 to condemn the heresy of Arius While St Nicholas became famous In the councils of the church it was still more as the special friend of the hiM n h fame unrpad Notice There will be a meeting of the share holders of The Citizen National Bank at their bank boars on Tuesday January fitb

restoring to life two or three children There are two accounts of the story One says that an Asian sent his two sons to Athens to study Kn route they fell in with a villainous who to get their valuables slew the two boys and cut their bodies bits which he put in his brine to sell for pork Then St Nicholas having seen the crime in a vision came to the spot and restored the children to life The other version says there were three children and that their would be murderer was a butcher In either case St Nicholas per I into I innkeeper barrel The German Kris formed the miracle of restoring them tolifeThis was the first act by which St Nicholas proved his love for children The second bore still more strongly on the Santa Claus idea for it was a favor that he did at Christmas time A certain nobleman of Patara was so poor that he was unable to give a portion for his three daughters and it seemed impossible that any of the trio could get a husband St Nicholas learning of their plight came at Christmas time and threw a purse filled with gold into an open window The act was done as stealthily as that of the modern Santa Claus the noble man could not tell who his benefactor was but he gave thanks and married off the eldest daughter Next Christmas came another purse and the second daughter took a hus bandWhen the Christmas of the third year approached the noblemans curl osity got the better of him and he set himself on guard to see who it was that left the money When the saint appeared the nobleman came forward and asked why so good an act should be performed in stealth Then the patron saint of the children enunci ated the great truth that the best acts are those that are done for the joy Of doing not the hope of praise Thus centuries ago was proclaimed what is the best sentiment of Christ mas giving The idea of St Nicholas was so beautiful that it took its place among the great beliefs of the and in different forms i fa found nearly every century Both his name and his form differ but everywhere his labor is the same In France Germany Russia and the Netherlands he is the embodiment o an essentially religious idea but in England and the United States his of fice is more a secular one France always represents Noel as the Infant Jesus and in Germany too the name Krist Kindel corrupted here into Kriss Kringle means literally the Christ Child Even

I UK spell of the yuletide lasts very much longer than the yuletide itself Weeks before Christinas holidays we arc all think ing about them wondering what we can do to make J tloni better holidays than we t had planning surprises for erybody from the grandparents to e little ones toddling about the iirsery floor and keying ourselves to concert pitch over the whole matter America as a nation is growing im mensely rich among the nations of tho earth but while men of wealth are no longer extraordinary the rank and file still have and always will have limited means so that thrift is a golden virtue at Christmas as well as at other periods of the year Sometimes there is complaint at home that father is moody and turn and a little management and tact are in order before mother and the girls ask him for money the fact being that the poor man is borrowing right and left and is almost beside himself to meet the drain on his re sources Several years ago soon after the glow of the had faded into the ashen embers of midwinter a bUHlness man was taken ill Dragging slung through the weeks of February and March the victim It seemed of a mysterious malady he died and was burled during Easter week When his uffaira were settled they were found to be extremely involved Time entire scheme of living for the family had to be reconstructed and with pangs of agony those whom ho hd loved discovered that their extrava gance had really sapped the springs of his life They were not altogether to blame Husbands are not invariably frank and candid with wives Fathers have I I I I j I tad yule title dislike to let sons and clan htei know that they have anxieties they resort to every legitimate or illegiti mate means to gratify thcs who their iauu and n the end if a crash dies not come there are heart burn ings and distress that might as weE have been avoided When tin yuletide casts upon spell of foreboding or leaves a legacy of importunate eeditoi it has been rubbed of its limst ess ace and defrauded of its noblest messing is our misfortune that we cannot divest ourselves of a feeling that to make the homo happy we must spend too much money for our mental com fort Never was there a greater mis take Pleasure in the household de pads on simplicity far more than we think Children ortrn turn from the playtings that have cost a Godly sum in dollars and cents and fiord their delight in something cheap which they may use at their pleasure The costly doll imported from Paris an dressed in the height of the fash ion is shown with pride by its owner to her little friends hot it is not the doll which gives most satisfaction It is not the doll that the child plays with Very likely her mother con siders it too tine to be spoiled and puts it away in the closet exc t on state occrions A doll on the closet shelf stay he a marvel of elegance but it brings no particular gratifica thin to the child who seldom sees it Our yuletide should be full of warmth and cheer our extra money should be spout on plenty of light and an open lire and there should be good times at home the best times thou in all the year The beneficent spell of the has most of Leaven in it when we remember our poorer neighbors and our lonelier friends There are people known to us all who will be made very happy by so simple a thing at Christmastide as a letter For in stance there is the seamstress who worked for you 0 years ago anti who is ending her days in an old ladies homo She has nobody of tier own left to visit her and one day passes just like smother yuletide will bo made more
