Anopt riti: CHILDREN'S TREAT.—
For several years past on Christinas
morning the .Journal Store has IH-CII tlie
scene of lively scrambling and joyful
excitement among the school children
of this (dace, when Mr. Deiuinger had
a treat ready for them in theshajmof
new and shining pennies, in the eyes
i f tlie happy little ones he was the ver
itable Santa Clans and it is hut reason
able for them to make faint inquiry a
bout tins year's treat. Hut. we are sor
ry to say, for several weighty reasons,
among them his impaired health, he
will this year refrain from tho custom
ary presentation. It will lie a sad dis
appointment to the little folks, unless
some other liberal-minded citizen takes
up tlie matter and follows the com
mendable example of the Journal Store
man. There can certaiplv bp no iu're
gratifying inauguration of the happy
holiday season than to gladden 4-he
hearts of the chi'drei with a small gilt.

assume the role of good Saint Nicholas.

The readers of this wonderful magazine
for young jieople are so accustomed to good
reading and pictures that they will wonder
how it is a going to lie better than ever this
coming year. But it is.
Tlie new year has already begun with tlie
holiday number just out—a truly great
number, larger and richer and more varied,
and therefore it must Is- Is-tter than ever lie
fore. And the publishers have a primer to
s'iid to those who want to know what RVrfr
Amite is goimj to have in it in P#*t.
The wonder is that stick a library and
pieture-gal\ery win Wigot together for $2.40
year—a thousand pages and everything
J'r-sh ami new—stories, histories, travels,
liiigr.tphy, sketches, anecdote, alventure—
and all instructive as well as entertaining.
Two worlds are drawn from to make such
provision for the education and pleasure of
our children. „
So high is tlie ltcst of young people's liter
ature nowadays that we are all of ns glad
to lie young. Nine tenths of reading pen
pie prefer it to what is written for them :
for it has the rare merit of lieing easy as
well as good.
