While we on earth aro weeping
O'er a loss that sorely grieves,
Little Florenco lies a-sleeping
Calm as tho Autumn leaves.
Awaiting God's own pleasure,
The call to life again,
Our darling llttlo treasure
Now freed from ovory pain.
As yet 'tis hard for us to say,
Thy will, O, God, bo dono!
Yet to that point in faith wo pray.
That wo may quickly come.
For in thnt land beyond death's sea,
Where everything Is fair,
If thoro on earth wo faithful be
Wo'U meet our darling there.
Just a fow moro days of sorrow,
Just a few moro days of tears,
Then will come the glad to-morrow.
That will end all doubts and fears.

card sentlmcntr.llsm entirely nnd In
thnt ense In later life, make them
hellcvo that It Is wrong to bo led by
sentiment In preserving 'Tho Old
Gray Bonnot"; It should bo hurled
with the other rubbngo Into tho
scrnp pile together with the blue
ribbons on it. "Baby's First Shoes"
should also bo thrown from its place
In tho burca drawer with nil the
other foolishness. Teach them thnt
tho sentiment surrounding Independ
ence Hall Is foolishness and that Its
preservation Is n waste of property;
teach them that' Mo.unt Vernon hns
no reason to bo hold In higher cs
teom than the resldenco of any oth
er man in Virginia. "Facts aro
what wo want In this world." In
doing this we will make tho little
ones practical. They will grow up
practical men nnd women; they will
not bo led by foolish sentiment. The
story of Willlnm Tell is told; It was
beautiful but some investigator
tells us it Is false, therefore William
Tell must bo thrown among the
Junk. This is tho teaching of Grad
grlnd, Dickens' practical school
master, but It is not our view. We
believe there are sentiments around
which the minds of children twine
and which oven though based en
tirely upon tho Imagination serve a
wholesome purpose, and should be
continued. Among these we think
Santa Claus should bo classed, nnd
no child will lose anything by our
failure to disabuse his mind of the
fraud that is being perpetrated up
on him. "Teach the child," says
THE HERALD, "that these gifts
come from the Giver of all good
gifts"; yes, he needs to be taught
that It conies from Him indirectly
and this teaching should be given
special attention while we are dis
abusing Ills mind of all delusions
because wo must remember that
minds considered great, have told
us that the Giver of all good gifts
is only a myth and that none but
molly-coddles now believe that any
such being exists. But if tho Giver
of all good gifts should select Saint
Nicholas to dispense his bounty or
have it dispensed in the name of
this great saint we seriously doubt
that children would be harmed by
the Imposition. Yes, continue to
teach the children that their Patron
Saint is interested in them and
should they learn to love him, we
doubt that there is any loss occas
ioned to them; later on they may
wake up to the fact that Santa
Claus did not in reality give the
presents attributed to him, but that
the presents camo from others in his
name. Should these children feel
aggrieved and heart-broken at the
awakening from this pleasant delu
sion, It Is only what happens to us
all when we lose a dcrir and cherish
ed friend, but that Is no reason
why we should never 'have had such
a friend. We think Tennyson was
right when he said, "It Is better to
have loved and lost than never to
have loved at all." Wo think also It
was better to have Santa Claus In
childhood and have lost hi in in more
mature years than never to have had
him at all. The joy and happiness
occasioned to us in childhood by
this delusion can scarcely bo dupli
cated by any pleasure later on In life
and to rob tho children of this pleas
uro without giving anything in re
turn would seem a cruelty rather
than a favor.
How many of us In our more ma
ture years would give a large por
tion of our success In life could
we turn backwards time in its flight
and have ono more Christmas night
with stockings hanging by the chim
ney prepared for the reception of
the gifts which "that old scare crow
imposter" would suroly bring. How
many of us would bo willing to ex
change all tho pleasures that we now
enjoy for just one night of this de
lusion, but Mr. Gradgrind says
"facts are the only thing necessary
In this world, nnd we must have
facts." In this way there will bo
moro of the practical and less of tho
sentiment In life, there will be moro
fact but less sweetness nnd less
