SANTA GLAUS was so busy this year
that he enlisted the aid of ever so
many of the Portland boys and girls,
bcores of little people would have no
Christmas if it were not for the assist

of the public schools.
".""The Portland Parent-Teacher Associ
ation has a social service department,
of which Mrs. C. W. Hayhurst Is chair
man. The association also has a com
mittee of friendly visitors. Mrs. G. L.
Buland is chairman. These committees
laid the plans to guide the lads and
lassies in helping old Santa. The so
cial service bureau Is located In the
Central building, room 412.
So, in every district, the dolls that
"sister" had outgrown were gathered
. tip and sent to the domestic art classes.
There the girls dressed them in the
daintiest and smartest of frocks. The
toys that were no longer needed and
the books that had been read were an
sent to the social service rooms, which
Boon presented the appearance of a
really truly toy shop.
There were daintily wrapped pack
ages from the Davis School, with a
"Merry Christmas" and some appropri
ate little messages in each. Bounte
ous gifts from Irvlngton, Highland and,
in fact, from every school in the city
were In evidence.
Then there came, from every district
the friendly visitors who had read the
minds of the poor children In their dis
tricts and knew Just what each child
wanted and knew, too, that Santa
Claus delegated the visitors to repre
sent him. They took a big auto and
loaded it with the bright toys, dolls,
books and lovely things that were
meant for the children who otherwise
might have been forgotten. Yesterday
this distribution of gifts commenced
and it will continue from 10 o'clock
this morning until 5 o'clock tonight.

They're Not Engaged.
"Dear Miss Blake: I am a young
man of 22 and have been keeping com
pany with a girl two and a half years
my Junior for about three years. I have
been working away from my home
town for quite a while, but made regu
lar visits home. When away she goes
out with other fellows, but I don't
mind that, as I don't happen to be of a
Jealous disposition. We are not en
gaged, neither of us believing in long
engagements, but we have often talked
of getting martled. On my last visit
home a young man of my own age,
an old chum of hers from a dis
tant city, also was visiting at her
home. The girl and I went out as
usual, and on our way home she said
she was going to be real mean and
sund me right home, as she was very
tired. I said all right, but after having
gone a short distance I found I had
forgotten my raincoat and started back
for it. On returning I found this young
man, although0!?' was a late hour, had
not retired, but had waited for her.
They had not heard me, but I could see
all that was going on through the glass
door. 1 watched a while and was go
ing In, but was afraid something would
happen that I would be sorry for later
on, as I kjiow when I get angry I do
things I cannot account for. Did I do
wrong in watching? I love the girt
dearly and she always said I was the
only one and that all the rest were
Just fY tends. What would you advise
me to do? R. B."
You would have saved yourself much
unhappiness if you had gone in imme
diately, but since you did not I see no
reason why you should be worried
about what you did. Of course the boy
would wait up until his hostess came
home. There was nothing wrong In
that, neither was It anything more than
courteous for her to sit up and talk to
him until you returned. Unless you
saw them doing something which
makes you think that they are In love
with one another I see no reason why
you should feel yourself mistreated.
Hs an Orphan.
"Dear Miss Blake : I am a young
man attending professional college and
have two years more before finishing
my course. I have no parents and am
working my own way through school.
I am in love with the only daughter of
wealthy parents who I think cares for
me. Would it be advisable to become
engaged or married and ask for as
sistance, or continue to battle my own
way? I have been invited to her home
several times, and her parents seem to
care a little for me. L. K., Jr."
It would be entirely unjust of you to
ask the girl to marry you when you
have no prospect of being able to pro
vide a home for her. Fight your own
way through school and then ask her
to marry you when you are able to give
her a good home. I should think that
your pride would keep you from being
willing to accept not only ' your liveli
hood but your education also at the
hands of the girl's parents.
How Billy Plg'a Tail Was Curled.'
(tXT HERE are you going, Billy
W Goat?" asked Bill Pig one
morning as Billy Goat was passing the
garden where he was working.
"Oh, I am going to the barber's to
have my whiskers trimmed a bit and
have an extra curl put In my horns,"
replied Billy Goat. "You better come
along If you are going to the party
over at Spotty Pig's tonight."
So he dropped his hoe. and without
tolling, bla mother where ha was colas;
SET AT NATIONAL CAPITAL.
went along with Billy Goat to the bar
ber's. Now, the barber was old Mr. Dog,
and when he say Billy Pig coming
along with Billy Goat he was very
much pleased, for never before had a
pig been to his shop, although he had
tried many times to have one of them
come In and have a curl put- in his
Billy Pig watched Billy Goat while
Mr. Dog trimmed his whiskers and
then curled his horns, although Billy
Pig could not see that Billy Goat's
horns curled one bit more than when
he sat down in Mr. Dog's chair.
He did not wish to be impolite,
though, so he said he thought Billy
Goat looked very fine, indeed, and if
he could look half as well himself, he
should feel repaid for coming.
"You will look handsomer," whis
pered the flattering Mr. Dog. "I should
not want Billy Goat to hear me say
so, but you are a much finer looking
fellow than Billy Goat, and when you
get your tail curled he will be terribly
jealous, I expect."
Billy Fig sat down feeling a little
frightened, even with all of Mr. Dog's
assurance that It would hurt only the
least bit, if at alL
All the time Mr. Dog went on talk
ing and telling him what a beautiful
tail be had to curl.
And then something happened, for
Mr. Dog had been heating the curling
iron all this time, and when it was hot
enough he wound Billy Pig's tail
Billy Pig squealed loud enough to be
heard a mile and Jumped, and Billy
Goat, who was standing outside wait
ing, poked his head in the door to see
what had happened, and out come Billy
Pig, bumping into him and over they
rolled on the ground.
Mr. Dog burned his paw when Billy
Pig Jumped, and he was barking as
loud as he could, telling Billy Pig he
was a careless fellow to jump and spoil
everything when it would have only
hurt one little bit longer.
When Billy Pig and Billy Goat got
on their feet again Billy Pig kept
dancing about and squealing with pain.
"Come in here," called Mr. Dog. "If
you had not jumped you wuold be all
right now. I was just going to put
something on so you would not feel
the hurt when you Jumped."
"Your tall is curled." said Billy Goat:
"It looks a little red, but It is curled."
Billy Pig stopped squealing when he
heard this and tried to look at it.
"Come in and look in the mirror,"
said Mr. Dog, "and I assure you I will
not hurt you again."
Billy Pig went In slowly, but, kept
his face toward Mr. Dog.
His tail was curled, but the pain was
not gone, and Billy Pig was not sure
it ever would.
"Don't you think It looks hand
some?" asked Mr. Dog.
"Yes," answered Billy Pig, "but It
hurts a great deal to look handsome;
I would rather have it straight."
"Your tail will never uncurl," said
Mr. Dog. "It will curl naturally all
the rest of your days, and you should
be very grateful to me for making you
such a handsome fellow."
"I may feel that way tomorrow,"
said Billy- Pig, as he walked away,
"but I don't know." (Copyright, 1914.

A mother rushed frantically up and
down the lobby Saturday afternoon, ob
viously seeking something.
"Can I be of any assistance? asked
"Oh, yes," she said, "I've lost Harold
and I can't find him any place.
Harold, who was about 3 years old,
was found beneath one of the long
mailing tables that run down the cen

He waa gazing unblinkingly at a
stately policeman who stood near one
of the stamp windows and seemed be

from whom he had been separated only
two or three minutes.
"Uncle" George Seaton, who protects
