"They are quite the loveliest I have ever seen," spoke mother. "I do believe that you have put your very heart and soul into their fash ioning." Joan had spent many days and nights, too, stitching a loving holi day thought into each tiny garment. The dainty materials had been transformed into things of beauty. The dresses of pale blue silk with bonnets and slippers to match, had proclaimed them the "Two Little Dolls in Blue!" "Oh, won't Dot love them?" beamed Joan, as she again eyed the dolls from head to foot with a happy •mile of complete satisfaction. "I dare say this will be her hap piest Christmas, one that she will never forget," said mother. Christmas eve, with its bright lights and cheer, was in full prog . i little dolls in blue fjbj " were being fon llS3 Ixgv. died by one of 7\bk the happiest little girls in the world. Rocking in her own tiny chair Dorothy May be y gan singing a lul ls "T i\ J9 laby to the dol -111 Wrl l / ) Lp. lies, wholly ob lijl 'IJrT p- livious of the at tendant sur roundings. It was such an adorable sight that the others had stopped their celebrations and were beaming up on her with transformed emotion. The spell was broken when Doro thy May suddenly stopped singing and called out, "What shall I name the 'two little dolls in blue'?" "Well," said _ Joan, « smiling thoughtfully, "since they are dressed in blue and are two very important little ladies, why not call one Alice Blue and the other Elinor Blue?" And so the dolls were named. On Christmas morning in another house around the corner, Bonny ' Jean awoke with the joy of the hol iday and shouted, "Mother, did San ta come and did he bring me a big baby doll with curls and eyes that open and shut?" "Yes, dearie, Santa came and brought you a very pretty doll." Then spying it, seated beneath the tree dressed in scarlet finery, Bonny Jean clasped it to her breast. Upon close inspection, she soon learned that it was the same sort of doll she had always received, only with new features. Just as she was about to burst into protest at her bitter disappoint ment there came a rap upon the door and a kindly neighbor was say ing, "Merry Christmas." Then with a happy smile— "What is the matter, little girl? Hasn't Santa Claus come yet?" "Oh, yes, he came, but h$ brought me the same old rag doll again. I thought sure it would be a real one this year, because I'm nine, you see." "Oh, I am so sorry," said Dorothy May, with true feeling and thinking of the two beau- «; na tiful dolls which \ ;£&**"l r~ Santa had left for *sl I her. Then with a if v "^ happy Christmas thought, she whispered some- iggßf I thing very lovely ( to her mother. They all went ' right over to the YiSSi/* big house on the hill nestled un der its burden of \ 'A Christmas snow. »j Bonny Jean for- vl tlßw got all about the rag doll when she glimpsed the great tree through the holly wreaths in the window. But when she saw the two little dolls in blue sitting beneath it her joy was unbounded. She clapped her hands and danced with glee. "Such darling doUsl" she gasped, breathlessly. "Their names are Alice Blue and Eleanor Blue," said their little mis tress, proudly. "I want to give you one of them. Bonny Jean; which do you like?" With unbelievable surprise, her eyes fairly dancing with joy, she clasped the beautiful doll in her arms and asked, "Is—it—really— mine—for—keeps?" "Really and truly for keeps," said Dot. Dorothy May explained it all to 1 "-her mother after the happy little girl had left, that apmehow she just 1 did not miss Eleanor Blue very much when she saw how happy she ' had made Bonny Jean. In her heart she felt thit it was ' i truly "more blessed to give than to [ receive," and hugging the one little [ doll closely, she whispered, "Mer- I ry Christmas, Alice Blue." 1 6 Western Newspaper Union.
