They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age--they do not believe except what they see--they think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. "All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. "'lu this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelli. geoce capable of grasping the whole of t r u t h and knowledge. "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. "He exists as certainly as love and generosity and de- ~,~ votion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Ciaos!, It would be as dreary as if there were no Virgmias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eter. nal light which childhood fills the world would be extin- (0 guished. "Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! "You might get your papa to hire men to watch ia all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, things in the world are those neither children nor men can see. "Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there--nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders that are unseen and uuseeable in the world. "'You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, bus there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest maa, or even the united strength of all the strongest men, that ever lived, could tear apart. Only taith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside the curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. ) "Is it all real. qah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. No Santa Claus! "Thank God!--he lives, and he lives forever---a thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten thou- sand years from now, he will continue to make glad she heart of childhood."
