LETTERS TO SANTA CLAUS " ' i' BiimitiJitttttflttttt ' m mm CHRISTMAS GIFTS : A CHILD'S HEAVEN. I want to go to heaven, wherem's very, very high: I want to ride around, with God, away up in the sky. I'd like to pat his reindeers, and then spank them with the whip, skip. And hear the bells go jingle when they prance and jump and a jolly noise, And then when Christmas comes around, you'll hear And God and me'll come sliding dowi. cne chimley with the toys Julian St reet in December American Magazine FOR WOMEN, MEN, GIRLS, BOYS AND CHILDREN ! ! i From the far distant land of Toys. where Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus make their home, comes the faint tinkle of mntr eioirVi hplls and a message to U1UUJ all little boys and girls to prepare for Christmas. Both Old Santa ana his good wife are very busy getting ready for the near at hand journey for everything has to be in shipshape order; the reindeer must be well groomed, the harness cleaned and oiled, the sleigh brushed up and the bells burnished bright. Old Santa is a great believer in order and neatness and he wishes all the children who write letters to him to write very plainly, for sometimes he is not able to make out just what they want, consequently when Christ mas morning comes some of the things most desired are not received. The Jeffersonian has received quite a number of letters addressed to Santa Santa Claus, and as he is a subscriber we publish them below in order that ,the kind old fellow may see what the little folks want, and n we believe, if it is possible, he will bring just what is asked for. Following are the letters: Jeffersontown, Ky., Dec. 7, 1907. Dear Santa: I thought I would drop you a few lines to tell you what I want you to bring me. One pair of roller skates and some oranges. From a good little boy. Leroy Omer. Jeffersontown, Ky., Dec. 7, 1907. Dear Santa Claus: I thought I would write you a few lines telling you what I want for Christmas.
