Knowing them, everybody accepted their un- s^fish ^"activity and generous-hearted tiioughtfulness as a matter of fact. If , the world could not count on .them doing the right thing at the right —time; we 'd have gone to the bow-wows long ago.

The RegiBtjSr had the good fortune and privilege of being their mouthpiece to spread the story and In spite of the fact that everybody was mighty busy attending to the holiday labors concerning their own relatives and kiddles and friendl. &.whdle lot of good people called and obtained the address of some familf which will be looked after personally.

Neb., Dec. 22. —car-load of extremely lively and valual)Ie Cliristmas presents has arrived here to gladden the homes of 36 Nebraska families. This carload Is a precious one being made up of 36 beautiful babies consigned from the New York Fondlings' Hospital to families In the vicinity of Omaha. These Christmas presents are to be taken into homes which are already prepared and anxiously awaiting their arrival. It is possible that a future president of the United States Is numbered among them. This Is one of several cars of babies sent out each year from New York to smaller cities in West. Each child Is guaranteed a home before it leaves New York. •> • • •> <• • •;• • •> • • • • <• • •> • • • • • •> <' • <• <• •> • •;• •> •> <• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • V It's getting on to Christmas.

The commissionerEJ will excuse from labor every employe who will join in the effort to sdciire game for a Christmas dinner for needyr Each liunter will do his very peat on this expedition and will ask| nothing In return save the satisfaction of know ing that he assisted In providing meat for some poor family 's! Christmas meal. " * ! Farmers are urged to be as lenient with the hunters tomorrow as possible and give them all the range they C4in. So many of the niqst favorable places to hunt are prohilblted preserves and unless land owners will annul for the day their iron clad rule, "no hunting allowed on this land," the hunt vUl not prove as successful as might be the case.

Su OlTert, the people 4iji>btalned the exclu- {til ,i-h perfluous! Merely Idle words, drowned by the Inner voice. But. and here is where the real fun came in, after the family folks had picked and chosen their joy, there were a score or more of unappropriat ed blessings left. Now It is written' that Christmas without children Is nO Christmas at all. And close next in order Is the Old Bachelor. The story book and the play and the legend always has an P. B. somewhere on the scene, doing penance for 364 days of selfish spending of his money on himself, perhaps feeling miserable because he knows - no children whom he can adopt for a day. and fearing that he is publicly considered an outcast The Register knew about this sort of fellow and It was jolly good fun to pass the word out that there were some kiddles left to ado^t. The money came so easily, so promptly and so generously that it really, as the slang goes, "vras a shame to take It" No extensive excursion was made; Just a quiet tip passed to a dozen bachelors and check books popped out and were filled in and the donors Just naturally glowed and pranced and extended thanks to the Register for letting them do It. Honest! It took lesK than- thirty minutes, of which twenty-fire were spent in getting at 'em and four in saying "It's to insure a Christmas tar the unappropriated kids." and the one minato.'Was the actual time in- taktas TUt^, Dollani, even nwney; Irpm abont ten Old r \'—*''.'rr-— (Good) Bachelors (Fellows).

You se^'these chaps every day. piking about, looking gruff and indifferent and doing their level best to make the world believe they are happy and content But don't believe It anybody. Under the crust they are as soft-hearted as mush, and nobody In town will have a finer Christmas than they because ther kiddles gave them a chance to show their hearts without being ashamed of It. Next Cbristmas. and the next, and the next, a Good Fellows Club Is ready for lola. .The town Is full of them, and if this year's experience Is not repeated their lamentations will be as loud as those of the forgotten Children.

Uerrofi, 111., Dec. 22.— Bob Veach, charaplun three-base hitter of the Three I Itague In Iflll. has become the fatiier of triplets. Tlie young Veachesv are all doluR well and the Peoria 'lul) in the Three I league already has its eyes on the children of the slugger. Veach practically won the chaiMploU 'ship for Peoria last -season and is very popular with the fans If any one can depict the sorrow of poverty more appealingly than can Joseph Wilson, a prisoner at the county jail. Jailor Lee Morrison would like to meet him. Wilson, acT cordins to the jailor, is a past master at the art deceptive and within the bleak, gray prison walls, the prisoner finds an effective setting for his tale of woe. Wilson was received at the jail last September to serve a sentence for enticing a young girl away from home for qutstiocable purposes. In addition to his jai! sentence. Judge J. P. Duncan fined the defendant ?.5flO. From time to time. Wilson told Jailor Morrison of his inability to pay the fine because of destitute cicum- .stances. He was poverty stricken if a man ever was. he said, and t'lere was novvay for him to earn money while kept in jail. Finally, the jailor began to take some stock in Wilson's contention as to poverty and some sympathy for him, though not at all condoning his crime. Confidence and sympath.v, !iowever. were thrown to the four offers will be spurned. Anotlier feature of the case, as d«-- (luciLcl hy Jailor Morrison, is that Wlls .iii had apparently determined, if lli<; coniir .lrrs 'uners refused to graat hini a {•PTtie, io make his escape if pohslb'e. The jailor believes that this was the rif 'if ^cn Wlison was so anxious to ffit his i )r<)peity together yesterday.

"I tan p( count for Wilson 's anxiety to gp". his ;v;itt'h at.-J money In no other v.ay ilian .hat he hoped to get away In the eveht he was not released law- ; fully," said .isilor Morrison. "There is no other reason for his being in a hurry for his property. He can secure it the moment he is legally released, but cf course, if he breaks jji!, he v.o'j li hare no oportunlty to call on us and c.i'im his watch."
