Te busy. and happy little Brownies love the
rain, ice and snow, and when the north wind begins
to blow, they frolic over the mountains to help Kriss
Kringle. They are so eager and love the work so well
that they have come too early, and find old Kriss Krin-
gle, with his pipe in his hand, sound asleep in his chair.
So with a merry little laugh they run off to play. Let
us look for a moment at this dear old man, that all the
children love so much. See his jovial face, his cheeks
as rosy as an apple, and his hair and beard as white as_
the driven’snow. And now that he opens his sparkling —
eyes, I think you will agree with me, he is the funniest

little man you ever saw. a

At the sound of his whistle the little Brownies all
appear. “I am sorry to keep my Brownies waiting, he
said, “but I worked all night and fell asleep in my chair.
The boys and girls have been good and kind this year,
and with the sick and poor I have been busier than ever
before. Put your sunshine faces on, and Mr. Wind and
Snow and Ice will take you where you must go.”
For weeks together these merry little fellows live with
Kriss Kringle, in his ice palace, over the mountains of
snow, in Kriss Kringleland. They work, and sing and
play, and are busy and happy the livelong day. S
