HQMt THE Pueblo Indians are without doubt the-most interesting peo- ple in America and perhaps in the world. They preserve practically unchanged the man- ners and customs that existed among them when America was discovered and which are described as early as 1541 in the histories of the expedition of Coronado, The peculiarity in their buildings, the use of underground chambers, known to the Spaniards as Estaufas, for ceremonial purposes; their industry and good government and the contrasts which, in many re- spects, they present to the surround- ing nomadic tribes, have long caused them to be objects of special interest. They have no written languago and hence their history, ceremonials and whatever fiction or drama they pos- sess have to be banded down by oral tradition; and to preserve these intact they have a system of instruction and a strength of memory really marvel- ous to u...

The answer is not easy, for Santa Claus was born ages ago and he has been so busy ever since that he never has taken the time to study his family tree. One thing he knows, and that is he has many names. American children call him Santa Claus, the little Dutch folk St. Nicholas, the French Pere Noel, and the Germans Prince Ru- precht or Kri6s Krin- gle, but they all mean jthe same thing. The story of hla birth is told in medieval legend. This Italian story says that his name was St. Nicholas and he was a bishop in the fourth century. He had a great ideal of money, but he waB so good to poor people, and especially to chil- dren, that he gave it away as fast as lie got it. There are many tales about Ills good deeds, but perhaps the most interesting o...

For wo have seen his star In the east, and are come to worship him.' The news that a true "king of the Jews." a possible rival, was born, and that his birth had been herald- ed by celestial phenomena, caused Herod much concern. He summoned to him the scribes and learned men. When they were questioned where the king was to be born they answered: "In Bethlehem of Judea; for thus it Is written by the prophet, And thou, Bethlehem, In the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda; for out of thee shall come a governor, that shall rule my peoplo Israel." According to the authorized Version it Is then stated in the New Testament that "Herod, when he had privily called the wise men. Inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and sea...
