MUSIC AT DELAFIELD. Santa Clans has been a busy man in Waukesba for -the past few days. His troubles began Saturday night when he was expected to officiate at nearly every church in town. All had prepared to. give him a hearty wel- come an'd the all c'anae early. The old gentleman was in a but he got out of it quite cleverly. The Baptist Church had prepared an elegant chimney for him to descend and he couldn't resist the temptation so he made his appearance at that but when he found that every church in town was expect.ing him he didn't know what to at last he found one at each of them who was willing1 to act as his then he thought he would take a little pleasure trip of his own and so he up to the north pole where there was better sleighing. In appointing deputies he had over- looked the Methodist Church. No Santa Ciaus appeared and the chil- dren began to get anxious when it was suggested that some one had better telephone and see what was the mat- ter. It was discovered that Santa Claus and Admiral Dewey were hav- ing a celebration of their own on the admiral's flag ship up at the North Pole. As it was too late to appoint a de- puty and the sleisrhing was too poor to bring the the admiral volunteered the use of his ship and it soon made its appearance with tbe .admiral himself on the bridge and the hold chuck full of which Santa distributed with many apologies for so nearly forgetting to come. Every merchant in town was also made a special deputy and kept busy all evening delivering gifts both large and simple and but all bearing a message of loveard good will. There were some funny mistakes made by the delivery men. There was the newly married young naan who selected for his wife a fancy rocker and was astonished when a high chair was delivered to him and his neighbor was equally surprised at receiving the rocker. Tbe young man who bought his best girl a book of poems could riot understand why she was so cool until she handed a little volume of receipts for mixed drinks and asked him what he meant by her a book of that kind. He had a hard time trying to explain to her that a bartender was selecting a present at the same time he was and that the clerk must have made a mis- take. The young man who lives on the same street with his sweetheart was much put out to lind the present he had ordered for her delivered at his home instead of hers and he was obliged to take the bulky package in bis arms and deliver it himself. In spite of mishaps and mistakes it At Del a field village last Wednesday at a school JO. L. Terry was present and rendered several in her most deiiyhtfu'J way.
