' Santa Clans Came to Our Store The other evening just as we were about to lock up for £he night. "Hold on a minute," says the dear old fellow; "I am crowded for time and if I get enough presents for all of my children I shall be obliged to detain you a little while." We were very glad to be detained under such circumstances and show him our little Toy Ranges for little girls, in which tiny fires may be built; little flat irons and ironing boards, too ; and tool chests and saws and saw horses for the boys ; pocket knives and scissors, nickel tea pots, tea kettles, and baking dishes. ' " Yes," says Santa Claus, "you have a nice lot of useful presents, but how am I to carry them, they are so heavy? I will need a Reindeer that has more mettle in him than those I usually drive, and whose sinews are made of iron and nerves of steel, for it looks now as if it will be hard sledding." He had scarcely finished when there came a metallic sound from the rear. " That sounds familiar," shouted Santa, and he started to investigate. But he was met halfway by the object of his desire, for the Reindeer's legs were conductors. With a stamp of his foot and a whisk^ of his tail his body churned from side to side as he glared at St. Nick with his glassy eyes. Santa was scared. He jumped upon the counter, but in the twinkling of an eye had the old Reindeer's body well roped. Then like the fabled horse, Pegasus, as soon as he had the bit in his mouth he could do with him what he pleased. " Here," says he, "you keep him till Christmas eve ; he is just the fellow I want." So we are keeping him for Santa, and he can be seen at our store any day, free of charge, until Christmas eve, when Santa will call for him. C. M. DOXSEE, FINANCIAL.
