SANTA and the MAGIC MIRROR by LUCRECE HUDGINS 'x/ x·'; ' ·',''/' ,, '* ', Sprang from $\e Croiud, Pul Poppy in a Car and Rushed Him off to Jail. SYNOPSIS: Belinda bravely enters the sad house to ask Mr. Lump's permission for Tommy to go with her to visit Santa, She runs out in fenr as the terrible Mr. Lump growls at her. Belinda promises Tommy that if tic will go with her to (he department store, her Poppy will know what to do. He takes her hand and decides to go. CHAPTER THREE TROUBLE FOR TOW' Belinda and Tommy ran through the streets of the great city u n t i l they were out of breath. Then they slowed to a walk and went on hand in hand pushing their way through the crowds of Christmas shoppers. Tommy Lump never said a word. One instant he was torn with fear of what his father might do if he found him fjone. The next moment he was wildly eager for this enormous adventure that he had started upon. Presently they came to the store where Poppy worked. In the lobby of the store was a giant tree dripping .silvery icicles and glowing with colored lights. On the tip top was a golden angel. At the. bottom was a pool of glittering packages. Tommy Lump just stared and stared. Never in his life before had he seen a Christmas tree. He would have stayed there forever d r i n k i n g in the sight and smell of it. But the crowds swelled around tho; two children, swept them upstairs and downstairs and through room after room until suddenly they f o u n d themselves standing before a great red throne. On the throne sat Santa Glaus himself. All the fear left Tommy Lump as he gazed at the cheery, red- suited man on the throne. For the first time he believed there really would be a Christmas for him. Poppy reached out and drew Belinda 'to ,hie side. "Couldn't you wait for Santa to come home?" he asked with a smile. "I could wait," said Belinda, "but Tommy couldn't. Oh, Poppy you know the sad house we saw this morning?" · Poppy laughed. "You mean Mr. Lump's house? The house of the rich man?" "Poppy, he isn't rich! He can't be. Because here' is Tommy, Mr. Lump's little boy, and he's never had a Christmas in his whole life! Never seen Santa Claus--never hung up his stocking. And he's sad. I told you it was a sad house." Poppy looked at Tommy Lump standing there thin and pale and wretched in his patched, too-tight coat. "Are you really the son of Jeremiah Lump?" asked Poppy in astonishment. The boy nodded dumbly. Poppy reached out and drew the boy, too, into his arms. "Well," he said kindly, "this year you'll have a Christmas, I think." "I told him you'd fix it!" cried Belinda. "You mean I'll have a tree and toys and everything?" whispered Tommy hardly daring to believe. "I'll go to see your father," promised Poppy. "I'm sure he won't say no to Santa Claus. Now you two children be my helpers until my lunch hour. Then we'll see Mr. Lump." Speechless with happiness, Tommy Lump became a Santa helper. Belinda lined up all the children who came to see Santa. Then Tommy handed each one a great lolly ,pop. And h« and Belinda had one, too, whenever they wanted. All morning- the children helped Santa. Finally it was lunch hour and Poppy got off his great red throne and took the children out of the store. He didn't bother to change his Santa suit or put on a coat or anything. They walked towards Tommy's home and people turned to smile at the Santa Claus striding along between two skipping happy- faced children. But as they turned on to Tommy's street they {ound crowds of people packed on the sidewalk while police cars with screaming sirens roared in the street. What's going on," Poppy asked a man. "A kidnapping," said the man. "They say Jeremiah. Lump's ' boy has been stolen." At that very moment Mr. Lump, standing at the top of his marble steps spied Tommy and Belinda and Poppy in the crowd. He flew down the steps and hurled himself on the astonished Poppy screaming, "Here he is! Here's the man who stole my boy! Here's the man who stole my boy! Arrest him!" And before Belinda or Tommy or Poppy could even speak, a dozen police sprang from the crowd, put Poppy in a car, and rushed him off to jail.
