Every day for a week it had been at one of the doors crying to be taken in. It was a cute little thing with its white body and black feet and tail. But Martha couldn't have it tracking mud into the house. Besides what would she do with it when she went away? For it would be foolish to refuse the offer to return to her old position from which she had resigned last spring. . It was at that time that she returned to her old home.

From now on she would try hard to prove worthy of her heritage. She would attempt to restore the order and beauty that had been there in former years. All spring and summer she and her companion worked tirelessly and lov. lngly inside the house, painting and sewing, and outside planting and trans- planting, while workmen did the hear. ler work. Many asked would she ever get out what she had put into It) Martha felt she was even now getting much out of It through seeing order and beauty taking the place of dis- order and neglect. That her work had borne fruit was proved by many stop- to add a word of praise and those whose admiring glances were sufficient in themselves. If one of those would admire it enough to rent it. * * $ $ * * $ There wasn't much time left--she must report for work the first of the year and Christmas JuSt a week away. How many wonderfully happy times she had had in this house at Christmas. How gay the house always was with holiday decorations. A wreath here, a roffe of pine or tinsel there, here an- other wreath--and now the little ever- green on each side of the front step would ~nake beautiful outdoor Christ- mas trees. She opened the door to look at the trees. "Meow," the kitten greeted her. Martha hesitated, then picked it up and gtepped back into the. house. Once inside, the kitten bounded out of her arms, looked around the room, then selected a bright orange cushion on which to take a nap. Martha's hearty laugh brought Hllda Gray, her companion, into the room. ., tt Behold our new tenant. Martha indicated the peacefully slumbering kit. ten.

Martha gave an af- firmative answer and Invited him to step inside. He was the manager of the iron mills across the river and he was looking for a home for his family. He had been interested in the place ever since he first saw it, and today when he saw the kitten standing before the door he felt he Just must have the house. Some one had told him that she would rent it. He hoped she would let him have the house and the kitten. The house was so like a real home and his little daughter would love the cat as she had had one Just like it. He had promised her another one and if he could have the house before Christ- mas, he could have his family with him for the holidays, and he could give the kitten to his little girl for s Christ- mas gift. Satisfactory terms were soon arranged and later Martha told the kitten : "You are quite the nicest Santa Claus I ever saw, although a queer one. And to think I almost turned you away."

Long Ago There Had Also B~en "Just ~even Of Theml" Lucia Bell, a new resident several doors down the same street was sit- tlng alone dreamily gazing out upon the Christmas ice castles. Just then she heard a knock. Who in the world could be rapping at her door on Christmas day?
