"And Santa Claus is coming to-night, Coming when we are asleep; I And mother says he is sure to bring Just what we want, to keep." "Then he will bring me a golden ring." "He'll bring me a doll, I know." Said Harry: "'He'll bring me a ship, With sails as white as snow."

Boundaries at TItie. When land is cheap, as it generally is in portions of the West that are but obi sparsely settled, the owners of tracts w are careless about the establishment of far boundary lines. If they fence in a "c' farm they are not particular to set the th< fences on the exact lines. The length o' of the boards or other materials em- tn p)loyed for making the fence will often eel determine the position of one boundary. of The fence on the highway is hardly ms ever in the exact position required for th( the width of the road. A considerable m1 portion of the space claimed for high- Cal way purposes is generally included in re: the adjoining field. The first fences ' erected in a newly-settled place gener- an ally determine the position of those put :t up subsequently. The latter are placed lib on about the same lines as the former. otl It is often the case that no surveyor is wi employed to run lines for the purpose he of locating fences till the ancient land- his marks...
