day before Christmas They lost the family cherub It had often happened that a silver spoon had been misplaced or perchance a pair of slippers cai ie up missing but never before hd the baby disappeared if a floor had suddenly opened and as suddenly swallowed her They hunted high and they hunted low They called and wept and begged and finally grew frantic and wrung their hands And just at that point they heard a faint little squeak very much like the sound of a bit of a mouse looking for its mother The squeak seemed to come from one corner and then it seemed come from another but after theI family had rushed wildly about like a lunatic asylum in a panic they found that blessed youngster stuck fast in the chimney She had got so excited hearing about Santa Claus for six or seven weeks that she had gone on a searching expe dition all by herself Now what do you think of that for a true Christ mas story- COUGHING SPELL CAUSED DEATH yearsnchoked to death early yesterday morning at his home
