CHRISTMAS, crowned with mirth and cbfcer,
Sweet magnet-night of all the year.
From field and city, camp and foam,
Where er our loved ones absent roam,
Thy subtle spell from far and near
Can draw them home.
Gathered round thy friendly fire,
Sisters, mother, sons, and sire
Once more in fond affection meet,
To lore-set time their besoms beat,
And every hearth's a happy quire
Of singers sweet. Copyright, 1*7.

It Was a Sure Proof
RUPT8 L. ORIS WOLD, the Cleve-
land educator who holds that it it)
wrong to let children believe in
Santa Claus, wag arguing about bin
•t range views at a dinner.
' '"Why lie to children?'' he asked.
"Why let tbem believe in a myth?
Whenever I hear mention of that
loathed name of Hanta Claim, I think
of a lunatic. Some yearn ago I at-
tended a trial. A witness was be-
ing examined as to the vanity of
one of the Inmates.
" 'You hold that thin Inmate is In-
■ane, do you?' a lawyer asked
" 'I do,' was the firm reply.
"'Why are you so sure?'
" 'The man,' the witness said, 'goes
about asserting (bat he Is Santa
" 'And,' said the lawyer, 'you hold,
do you, that when a man goes about,
asserting that he is Santa Claus, it's
a clear proof of his insanity?'
" 'I do.'
" 'Because,' said the witness, in a
loud, indignant voice, 'I happen to be
Santa Claus myself.'"

SIR THOMAS LIPTON had been
complimented by a New York re-
porter on the cup he had just offered.
"I ought to ofTer a cup," said the
genial Briton, "to the retail shop-keep-
er who does the biggest Christmas
trade. The Blze of your Christmas
trade amazes me—Its size, and the
dexterity with which it Is handled.
"I heard the other day of a great
Christmas bargain sale in Quincv. To
one of the bargain counters a man
was rash enough to venture. He
struggled heroically a little while
among the press, then, with a loud
cry. he sank

floor. 'Help! My leg is broken.'

Peace on Earth."
ALFRED H. LOVE, the president of
Universal Peace I'nlon, told one
day in Philadelphia a peace story.
"At this Christmas season." be said,
"men talk sincerely about loving one
another, about the universal brother-
hood <>f man. and In the same breath
they assert that It Is right to burn
and maim and kill In war. They are
not so logical as a young colored re-

Sam Small's Hypnotism
"THE late Sam Small had his faults,"
I said an Atlantan, "but he did not
dodge the penalty of tbem. When he
went wrong, he owned up like a man,
and if punishment was" due, he took it.
That was the doctrine Sam Small
preached. He hated dodgers. He
used to laugh bitterly at the plea of
hypnotic Influence' that used to be
put up by nearly every murderer.
I once heard him ridiculing hyp-
notism He said that he bought pret-
ty heavily one year for Christmas, and
when the bill came in for turkey and
mince meat, candy, ducks, chickens,
plum pudding, fruit cake and so on,
he thought to himself that here was a
case for hypnotism to be tried.
"He went first to hypnotize the
grocer Approaching the man, he
looked him squarely in the eye, at the
same time repeating, slowly and im-
" My bill Is paid.'
"A change came over the grocer's
face. His color faded, his eyes grew
dull, his expression blank. And in a
strange, mechanical voice he mut-
tered : .
" 'You're a liar.' "

"but the only acceptable ones are
those given with a pure motive. In
a crockery shop, during the holidays,
I once saw the proprietor hand a
plainly-dressed young woman a two-

and said bitterly:

Christmas Is a Good
Day for a Cold.
BISHOP OLMSTED of Colorado was
making a Christmas address to
some Denver children.
"Eat heartily on Christmas day,"
the bishop said, smiling. "Do full
Justice to turkey, to cranberry sauce,
to plum puddiag, to all the good
