Many a baby stocking will
hang by the fireside Monday
night, and many a bright eyed
tot will' experience unusual diffi
culty vd falling asleep on account
of the expected visit ot Santa
Claus. A uierry, merry time it
is for the little ones, aad yet
there are mothers and fathers
who trouble their souls with the
vexing question. "Is it right to
carry on the Santa Claus decep

supremely happy on this the'-'.nla's natal cuyr we
would answer nay, not from our
point of view.
le happiest deception in ali
'the wdrld is the time-honored
deception of Ssnla's annual ap
cearance. and to rob a child of
this quaint, old fashioned be
lief is to rnouerni;'.-? that child in
a way not at all to his profit,
much less to his pleasure.
In every nature thtie is a
touch of romance and a liking for
mystery and adventure, and at no
period of one existence are these
traits keener than during child
hood, when ih : nature is still
unformed and the little brain is
filled with all sorts of queer
fancies. It is thca that the old,
old Caristuiti htry is readily
taken a? lact, and the rotninae of
the tale takes the place ot less
wholesome mental food and sup
plies all the missing links in the
chin of Christmas surprises.
This happy time is only for a few
years, for "Young America" is
soon ijjf&rried aihd the illusion
once shattered is nver replaced.
,"jo the children calf it false
hood on the parents' part: Not
a bit of it. It is only a play, a
."make-believe" that brings
them happiness, and parents are
loved the more bv these same
children when'the latter are old
enough to realize that Santa
Claus was only another name tor
papa's and mamma's unselfish
lave and kiudness.
Let the story of the Child in
the Manger be repeated over and
over again, and with it the happy
onet. -
"Twas the nii?ht before Christ
mas And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse," etc.
But whatever is done, let the
little ones have their happy in
Kocent play time and their harm
less belief in "Santa." The
stern realities of life come soon
Where Was Moses?
"Where was Moses when the
lights went out2" was the ques
tion handed from one person to
another in Corvallis, Tuesday
evening, land the'.answer was, "In
the dark, as we are."
The occasion of the comment
was the disappearance in this city
of all electric lights. The last of
them blinked out about 4:30, and
as darkness came on there was a
rush in ail directions for the old
fashioned tallow candle, coal oil
lamps or anything that would
furnish light. Big stores, light
ed by a few tallow "dips" and
with clerks and customers mov
ing about in the dim, hazy inter
ior of the buildings gave one a
"spooky" sensation, as though
old-time customs had eome again
and the dad-and-crme riMnle nf
r - t 1 -
those times had returned with
the customs.
But it was not a hallow'een
prank nor.-a pleasant "ghost"

welcomed as a joke by Corvallis
business men. The Christmas
trade is at its best now, and to
have customers groping about in
darkness trying to make pur
chases was not pleasing to any
one, yet the situation was met
with better humor than are some
of the more trifling annoyances
of every day life, and when the
lights came on at 6 o'clock there
was general merriment and jok
