Church, and printed in 189? in answer to the following letter "Dear Editor: f am eight, years old Some'of iriy little friends'say there Is 110 Sa'hla Claiis. Papa says, "If you see it in the New York S^un,-it's so; Please tell me the truth, is there n Santa.Claus?" signed Virginia 'Han- Ion. The answer as is appeared in the ''Sun" follows; Virginia, your little friends nro wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of skeptical age. They do not believe except they sec. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible to their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether IhCy be men's or children's ore little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world ibout him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole [ruth and knowledge. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly ns love and generosity and devotion exist and you know they abound and give to your life its ughcst beauty nnd joy. Alas, how Ircary would be the world if there was no Santa Claus! It would be as drenry as if there were no Virginias. There would be no child like faith hen, no poetry, no romance, to make olerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment except in sense mcl light. The eternal light with vhich childhood fills the world would >e extinguished. Not believe in Santa 21aus! You might as well not believe n faries. You might get your daddy o hire men to watch in nil the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Clans, but even if they did not see Santa Claus come down,' what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Clans, but (hat is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are things that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see faries dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can see or imagine all the wonders that are unseen and unseeable in the world. You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world, which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that even lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love and romance can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. No Santa Claus? Thank God he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten thousand years 'rom now, he will continue' to make glad the heart of childhood.' . . . As yet, We've heard nothing about hristmas caroling, but feel quite sure ;hat the most beautiful and inspiring ot' all our Christian celebrations of the great festival will form a part of our rejoicings. The first Christmas carol, recorded in Luke 11, '13-14 was sung by the heavenly chorus of angels on the plains of Bethlehem. Dinah M. Clark's familiar Christmas song is a special favorite in England and is very beautiful in its simplicity and picturesque charm; "God rest ye, little children: let nothing you affright: For Jesus Christ, your Saviour, born this happy night; Along the hills of Galilee the white'flocks sleeping lay, When Christ, the Child of Nazareth, was born on Christmas day." Mrs. Jtoward Byers, a recent' Krfcf Mrs. Hferiry Htfyriey ertterfatned o Friday afternoon at the coffee hou at her attractive apartment on Sout Pin6 street..

Christmas wreaths, >clls and poihscttias were placed ul ivory point of vantage in the recep- ion rooms. The library table held cheshe with many figurines, animals ind Emnll palm trees depicting the 3ethlehem scene. The top. of a low :ook case held a Santa Claus scene vith figure;;, trees nnd houses in winter fashion. On the dining room able was a beautiful snow scene ilaced on mirrors, with a miniature 3nnta Claus in sleigh drawn by his turdy reindeers. Silver foliage and now covered trees added to the beau- V of this .sotting. Red candles in Christmas holders further suggested season. There wns an ai'rractivc program with the following taking part, Sarah Ann Holland, Margaret Simms, Mary Ross McFaddin, Matilda McFaddin. Martha White, Enola Alexander, Martha Ann Alexander, Mary Lee Cook, F. B. Ward, Jr., Lottie Boyce, Betty Monls, Mary Cornelia Holloway, Nancy Ruth Carrigan. Owing to the .recent bereavements in our city several who had prepared for this occasion did not take part. At the close of the program William , Routon distributed Christmas favors. Mrs. O. L. Reed has returned from a week's visit with her sister, Mrs Dwight Blake and Mr. Blake in Min- dcn. La. Mrs. Howard Byers, a popular bride, who has been the center of many delightful social affairs during the past two weeks was the hanorce, at a very charming evening bridge on Friday evening given by Mrs. J. W. Patterson at her home on South Hervey street. The card rooms were gay and festive with Yuletido. reminders in red and green and the four tables arranged for the players held accessories in which the Christmas niotif was still further stressed. Attractive prizes went to Mrs. Ernest Still and Miss Mary Billingsley and the honoree was presented with a lovely gift. Mrs. Jack Stewart of Vicksburg, Miss., was an out of tosvn guest.

Opening to be Colorful For three years an average of 200 men a month have been working on this giant, and the $13,000,00 spent— mcit of which came from an RFC loan —spread more or less over the entire country. Included were 60,000 tons of steel. 400,000 tons of concrete, 440 tons Ceremonies incident lo opening the bridge will be picturesque. The first mail to cross the bridge will be carried by an Indian runner, then a Colonial dispatch-rider, a stage-coach, a primitive locomotive, modern locomotives and then the flux of modern traffic will stream across the bridge. By legislative enactment, the bridge will be dedicated to the late U. S. Senator Hucy P. Long. The people of our community will be interested In the following cxlrnct taken from a paper on the "Influence of Music," written by the late Mrs. Ann Watson Thompson, mother of D. B. Thompson of this city. The manuscript is faded and yellowed by time, but still clear and legible. Mrs. Thompson was 8 musician and (Cachcr of piano at her home in Prescott, Ark., and will be remembered lovingly by many of her former pupils and friends in this section. Influence of Music "At creation's dawn, the morning stars sang," a chorus of sweetness. The celestial choirs touched their harps and gladly hymned, "The birthday of Heaven and Earth." When inspiration mantled the hills and valleys with green, the beautiful song birds trilled their merry lays to the music of the breezes. An old darkey hearing an account of the fall of our first parents, said— "Yes! and right dar and den, if cle Good Lawd had drapped down a harp or planner, for Ebe to have picked upon, she would'ner tought 'bout chaltin' long wid ofe snake—and Adam would-ner' been 'tice'd to eat dat apple." . Music is a powerful instrumentality for good. This can be doubted by no Bible student. Saul was soothed by the music of David's harp. Sacrec music was an ordinance of God in'the temple and tabernacle worship. The style and sentiment of the Psalms clearly indicate this. 'Tis noi reported when hymns came into service, but they must, have been used in Jewish religious festivals, for in Matthew it is said, "And, when they had sung a hymn, they went out into the Mount of Olives." I believe the first musical sounds were vocal. The human voice must have been created before musical instruments were invented. Babes were hushed to slep by the monotonous crooning of the mother's voice. Young people swayed back and forth in the merry dance, while their nimble feet moved to the chime and chant of the voice. The same motive that thrills in modern, classic music, inspired the first people to express their emotions. Thus, melody and rythm marked the savage yell and the mother's lullaby. From "Fillmore's Lessons in Musical History," we learn that drums were first made by stretching the skin of some wild animal across a hollow log. Then, followed Tom-Toms, gongs, symbals, and tambourines. Doubtless the whistling, sighing winds, blowing across broken reeds, suggested stringed instruments. All these entonations echoed and re-echoed through God's 31-eat plan for man's redemption, rlenthens attributed them to their idol 3ods. Thus, from the earliest ages, the leave n born gifts of song has been nplanted as a messenger of good will from God to man. History abounds with many grand illustrations of the lower of music. The early Jesuit missionaries to the aborigines of Amerce used the fife and viol to soften their tempers. Even the rude barbarian's melody is wafted by the murmuring winds of his shadowy land, o'er the lakes of his fore-fathers, into the bosom of the great spirit; and, in their echoing rounds, the ripples tal isweeter than wild birds carol, linking him to his own loved dead. Hiawatha, wishing to win his beautiful Minnehaha, sent an arrow singing through the air, in the great land of the Dakotahs. The strains of martial music have moved thousands to enroll their names for their country's call. Since the days of Gideon many victories have been won by the bugles blast. All the great students of human nature have recognized the power of soul stirring music over mankind. Shakespeare warns us not to trust any man who "lis not moved with concord of sweet sounds." Hear the strong minded Pope—"If in the heart tumul- tous joys arise, music, her soft persuasive voice applies; or, when the soul is pressed with cares, exalts her in enlivening airs." Longfellow speaks of songs, "Which come like the benediction that follows prayer." Ann Watson Thompson. 'Stretchout" System / parently Improves T Laying Capacity RALEIGH, N.
