^ taints. Feel III the Christmas Air By JAMES WHITCOMB IULEY T HEY'S n kind o* feel in the air to me Wb«ri"th.fc. Chris'mas times sets in & That's about ils much of a mystery / As •v^r I've run ag'in. fer instance, now, whiise I gain in weight 4 And tfincral health, I swear They's tf goneness somers I can't quite state— A kind o' feel in the air. TThey's a feel in the Chris'mas air goes right :_Jta_the.-snauwhere:..«.:tnanr lives at! It gives a feller a appetite— They ain't no doubt about that! And yit they's somepin-I,don't know what- Thit follers me here and there And ha'nts and worries and spares me^not— A kind o f feel in the air, ^ They'9 a feel, as 1 say, in the air that's jest As blamed-on sad as sweet. in the same ra-sho as I feel the best ;% And am the spryest on my feet fc They'* allus a kind o' sort of a ache That I can't locate nowhere, But It comes with Chris'mas, and no^mistake A kind o* feel in the air. Is it the racket the children raise ? Why, no!-God bless 'em, no! ^ Is it the eyes and the cheeks ablaze; '*, Like my own wuz lontf ago? Is it the bleat o' the whistle and beat O* the little toy drum and blare O f the horn?! It is jest the sweet— The sad-sweet feel in the air. lotattonrtrBi With Christmas Gifts I- or it tixi'fui purse: T>U- IH«IJHrJU.JJ> ,' rBETTY-ftiwV-i>rl«lnnl touch be given n rhrlstuuiH >:lft by no- 'conipanylnii H with n tltitnty onnl 'Which nre wrlftfii thw nflnlfitt'H nnd some npt quotnticn of all proiirlntc lintiin-.
