James O.ikley worked at hi trade as
csrpenter in the same village, near the
Hudson river, where Jie was born.
His little cottaH with the tall libit 8 in
front, and the kitchen garden in the
rear, was a very dear place to' him.
His pleasunt-f ced, sunny-hearted wife
kept the homejihvays bright and tidy,,
and the three" rosy children filled it
with glee.and laughter. Margaret, the
oldesfei was a sweet, loving girl; Dic
wras a fiturd', manly little fellow, aiid
Robert was the darling of the boas".
Mr. 0 ikley, was a skillful mechanic
and an industrious, God-fearing man;
but times were dull for him in Smith
ville Center. There was little going
in in the way of new buil iiug, ;nd he
often had to be absent from borne for
weeks together, wlTile employed at Home
After many earnest talks with his
wife they decided to remove to the
West, where new villages and cities
were rapidly growing up. So they
found a purchaser for the little cottage,
and had an auction sale of the cow
and horse and all the furniture except
some heir'o ms and sonic articles
which they would not part witti..
Theiij after bidding their neighbor
good-by, t hey entered the eais amf
were whirled awav to a new home in a
flourishing lo vn in Illinois.
It was early in spring. The rose
bud bushes were bright in the thickets,
md n thousand nower-j, new and
-t range to the immigrants, painted the
prairies. An air of bustling activity
pervaded the town. Buildings were
going up on-every side, an I Mr. 0 ik-
ey soon round employment at ietter
wagex than he had ever received in his
old home. -
For ii time everything went well
with him ami hi- faniilv. His work
vas in cons'ant demand, and if his
thoughts ever turn d with tenler re
g ret to the green hills which sur
rounded his former home, he had only
to look at his rosy children and picture

tretch.es of slimy ooze festt-riug in the

length, with soft south winls laden
with germs of disease. Kobbie. the pet
of the house, was 'stricken "with a ma
larial fever, r or long days and nights

yes. At l'-ngin me crisis was passe u
but recovery was slow; and while Rob
bie was still the mere shadow or the
ruddy-cheeked little holy he had been,
the fever seized upon his father.1
l'here were sorrowful times now in the
little household. Mrs. Oakley watched
day and night'beside her husband and
little boy. mid helpful Margaret proved
herself a treasure.
When the first brief, wintry days
came uoooie was once more piaying

whom the fever had spent its fore'.

ley, too feeble to st up more than 'a
few hours at a tinie, had already re
tired. Mrs. Oakley sat thinking 'sadly
of the disappointment which seemed
awaiting the children for the tirst
tames in their lives. Suddenly the
doorbell rang, and as Mrs; Oakley
opened the door, there stood an x-
pressman and in the street a loaded
wagon.. From its depths he drew out
a big fat turkey, a hand-sled and a
heavy paper, box wrapped up in thick
paper. Having deposited the things m
the hail, he hurried out r. to his wagon
and drove awav, leaving Mrs. Oak lev
greatly puzzled. Surely there must be
some mistake, she thought. But no;
the packages were all plainly - marked:
James Oakley, INo. 6b hast' fourth
street," and then on the sle I was neatly
painted: "Dick ' Oakley.' In the
pap, r bos was aFreneh doil with real
hair ana eves that closed when she was
laid clown. A little card attached to it
was marked, "Margaret.' There was
also a ball marked "-Robbie," and such
h)ts of coidy and pretty things for all.
The stockings were .soon I'UedT to The
very tops, and the other things laid
out on a
e, where the children
found them the next morning.
There was a i -vi'iit meetinr around
thii breakfast tald-, but Mrs. Oakleys
face wort? a puzzled 'expression. Fin
ally s!ie asked: vWiiere could all
otiose things have coin from?"
"Why mamma,"'; said Margaret;
"Santa ClausSent them. I know he
diit, 'eau-iC I .wrote, to him." " '
"Vou wrote to him ?" said her mother.
"Yes, I wrote and told him where
we lived." .
This made the matter clear enough
to the children, but only deepened the
mystery fur the father ami mother.
In the afternoon, v. hen full justice
had been done to the turkey, Margaret
sat holding her beautiful new doll.
Dick was out drawing his sled through
! e streets, and Robbie was asleep, a
summons came from the front door.
As Mrs. O.ikiey went to answer it she
found there a tall, bearded man, who
inquired for Mi. Oakley. She let him
in the little silling room where her hus
band s t propped iqycvith pi Tows in hi
; arm chair. i'lv c-dler went straight
to him, fe'z'-d his thin hand and
asked ' M ames, -non t yon kuow )onr
old friend Thorii is Raymond'?" It
w;is indeed the friend andptaymate of
hi i-arly days. '
"But how did you find me?" in
quired Mr. Oakley.
, "Oh, I'r.ad it from bauta L laus,

he sat down and the two talked over
the events of their boyhood. They
had sat together in' se.hool; together
hey had climbed the hills and hunted

As the talk went on a suspicion
grew upon Mrs. Oakley of the manner
in which Sani Claus happened to
-end the presents.: But the visitor
gave no clue to the mystery, nor did
she see through it until Margaret had
told her the whole story of her letter

A North Carolina firmer -propounds
the searching questions below to his
brother farmers - in the -'Tar Keel

to all sections of the country. The
questions get right down to the milk
in the cocoa nut :

Don't you know that the constant

Yes, cotton will rise. Mark our pre
diction: The predictions that are being sent
out from New York and published in
the newspapers all over the country
that, the cotton crop will le unusually
large is without fouudation and is
wholly false. It is the work of stock
gamblers to aid them in their specula
tion schemes. " In fact we are in pos
session of reliable information which
shows that the world's cotton crop, ac
cording to the estimates of the best
experts, "will fall mhkr the- published
estimates by more than a-million bales.
Further, we have in our po-oessidn
a confidential circular which was in-
among speculators which puts th i cot- j
i-ent iea - to , circulate on the insi
ton crop or the. world, at 1.800,000
bales short of "the figures they have
published to the world. According to
their own estimate the cotton crop of
this year will fall short of th;1 esti
mated, -need' of the World at- hat
000,000 bales. It is true we lost
last year by holding hack our cot
ton, but the crop was unusually large
which with , a contracted money sup
ply enabled the speculator to steadily
push down the price. In fact we. can
seldom afford 16 try to hold a crop as
long as a few money sharks can control
rhti volume of currency. But with the
great shortage in the crop this year ii
is hardly possible that they will be nb!e
to keep down the price if the farmers
will hold up and stjp selling.
