As I drop mt Hup
AFTER a continuous fall of snow
for forty hours, the small town
of Bethel was covered with a pure
white mantle on the day before
Over the hills the tinkling sound
of sleigh bells was music upon the
frosty air of the early winter morn
ing as Judge John Walnwright
looked out of the chamber window
of his farmhouse. As he peered out
of the little panes of glass with
their tiny draperies of snow he saw
Jasper Jones with his two-Hitch
plow breaking a way through the
narrow Main street of the town,
while an occasional salute of "Good
mornln', Jasper 1" came from neigh
bors as they shoveled paths from
"Reckon we'll have a real Christ
was snow nearly two feet deep
came down pretty heavy!" re
The words "a real Christmas,"
with the sound of sleigh bells, rang
all day long in the ears of Judge
Walnwright, even after he had fin
ished his supper in company with
his wife and son Roland. "Rolley"
and his wife, Marion, lived with
Judge and Mrs. Walnwright. Marl
on, being somewhat 111 In her room,
was unable to join In the evening
After supper Judge Walnwright
climbed the handsomely carved old
colonial staircase, and when he had
reached the seat on the landing he
sat for a moment on the red velvet
cushion to glance down at the hall
with the tall clock ticking merrily
and the log fire snapping happily.
Its rosy glow painting the white
walls and their decorations of
greenery such a picture 1 And the
Christmas Joy of the olden days
came to him. He had romped on
these same stairs with a happy
heart, with his sister Lucy at his
heels. Yes, Lucy there was the
one shadow on the Joys of Christ
mas Ev3. Lncy had married against
the wishes of her family, and as a
result none of the family were on
wasTiTgli ana Tilmlnous ana long
beams seemed to stream from It as
it hung aloft, over the little town
of Bethel. A new joy had come In
to the Judge's heart, for a new-born
babe had come Into the home. And
as he turned from the window he
glanced at a pictured motto on the
wall, placed there by his own moth
er. It read : "Blessed Are the Peace
makers, for They Shall Be Called
the Children of God." Speedily the
bitterness toward poor Lucy which
had been in his heart for so many
years had departed and the tears
came to his eyes. He determined
then to make the grandest peace
npon the Christmas day. He would
call upon Lucy himself, ask for her
forgiveness and announce the glad
tidings of a son a most glorious
gift bestowed by God in the old
Walnwright homestead.' It was
day of real Christmas rejoicing, up
on which the spirit of the man who
said "Peace upon earth" rested and
the little town of Bethel bad Its
hare In the advent of a new dti
sen John Walnwright in."

American Santa Clans
The American Santa Clans Is a
corruption of the Dutch San Nich

Clans, the name derived from Saint

of children In Teutonic countries,

followed by him Is somewhat open
to question. On the way he traded
his gray horse for a reindeer and
