The Union Christmas exercises
Christmas eve, to be given in the
open air at the intersection of
Commercial Street and Goodnight
Avenue, is meeting the hearty en-
dorsement of everyone and, in
consequence, the Sunday School
Superintendents who have the
matter in charge, feel highly elat-
ed. The Mayor and City Cormnis
sinners have given their consent
for the use of the street to erect
the tree and platform and also
allowed the privilege of connect-
ing- with the electric light plant
wires for illuminating purposes.
Hundreds of colored, electric
lights will be used instead of can-
dles, so there will be no danger
of fires. It is now a settled fact
that Santa and family will be

promise, but only two of the
children will come. Mrs. Santa

much of the delightful climate
and also desires to inspect the
new deep water port, of which
she has heard so much about.
A present for every child in
Aransas Pass is the object of the
