Special to THE CITIZEN. 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.

Boars the Signature ISANTA CLAUS (Continued from Pago Ono.) 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 heart. DAMASCUS. High School Notes Prof. Chambers At M. E.
