is a Beautiful Practice of the Yule-tide Handed Down from the Christian
Centuries. The Success of Christmas Gift-Giving, However, Depends in a
Large Measure upon the Gift itself. It should be Seasonable and should be
Appropriate to the Person upon whom it is to be Bestowed. Makaweli

tions which confront our nations at
this time, in the light of present
national conditions and the future
probable conflict, it seems well to
give a few minutes to the considera
tion of that which lies so very near
and which is so very dear to us,
the reason why we are alone among
the nations of the world. In the
words of one cx-eollege president,
"Not since Fort Sumter was fired
upon has this country witnessed a
darker hour." Men who were
formerly considered a s poetical
optimists have changed, and are now
praying that. Cod will awaken the
people to this true condition fof af

pite their bloodshed, despite their
sacrifices on the battlefield, despite'
the harvests of death in war-torn
Europe, at least three of the nations
engaged in this conllict are far bet
ter oil in terms of manhood, far
holier, far more harmonious and
heroic, than they were two years
ago. These nations have saved
their souls, they have been true to
their highest ideals.
You remember the words so truly
spoken, It is man's perdition to
be safe, when for the truth he ought
to die." Our forefathers believed
that there were four things worth
more than life itself; liberty, truth,
justice, and the well-being of oth
ers. Liberty was worth more than
life, else "they .would not have died
at Valley Forge.' Justice for the
poor and weak was worth more
i than life, else Jesus would not have
