CHILDHOOD'S HAPPIEST DAY. Fathers and Mothers and Their Co partnership with St. Nicholas. The wise parents;, knowing how quickly the time of beautiful child faith must pass, cherish all the sweet baby beliefs as long as they can. They tell wonderful tales of Santa Claus, or Kriss Kringie, or St. Nicho las;—the beneficent Christmas saint is the same under any alias—they re peat and teach the blessed ballad of "The Night Before Christmas," they raise to the dignity of a state cere mony the business of hanging up stockings and, in a general way, make the most of the sweet, merry mystery surrounding the great holi day. There are some people who depre cate the teachings concerning dear old Santa Claus, and say that when the child learns that the. saint, is a myth he loses a portion of his faith in his parents' truthfulness and in their instruct ions concerning other and more sacred mysteries. The ob jection seems of little force. If the story of the Christmas saint is told, as are the (a...

If you have done so( it is an experience which, should you live through it, you will not readily forget. Most people, however, who have undergone it, do not live to do it again. Just about four nights before Christ mas, as he shivered on the bench in question, Jimmie Cochrane was not troubling himself about whether he could forget such an experience. What ha did ■ ask himself, however, was whether he could live through it. That seemed to be the all-important point, and he was still endeavoring to settle it - when the Benevolent Stranger, a fine portly figure of a man,r c...

A Vagabond's Christmas By TOM GALLON. (Copyright.) The real mischief began, perhaps, when John Everett lost his luggas". Liut for that, things would have turned out very differently, and John wouUl never have gone to that strange house, perhaps, at all.

In a worldly sense John had pros pered immensely, but now had re turned to his native land with the knowledge forced upon him that those who had been near and dear to him had, in the course of a dozen years, joined ...
