TUESDAY, DKC. LM, 1P89.
Thouj'h without some of the ac
cessories that give n peculiar spice
of enjoyment to the festival in other
climes, Hawaii yet observes Christ
ma, religiously anil socially, with
an enthusiasm and intensity not fall
ing short of the coi)nt,rics where the
day owns its history. This is the
season of peace and goodwill, when
human effort ought to echo the an
gello promise, sounded with heaven
ly music in the eaft of the shepherds
ou Bethlehem's plains, nearly two
thousand years ago. While we have
to deplore that our race have not
taken the message more to heart, in
all the intervening centuries but
continued to hurt and destroy one
another in all the holy mount of
divine benediction, as individuals we
ought to make our Christmas a pro
mise of belter things toward each
Mice-ceding year, thus fulfilling the
prophecy of the heavenly host in
our own lives. It is our best wish
for the readers of the Uui.i.ktix that
they may make the spirit of this
festival the controlling power f their
conduct until happily the return of
the joyous tide in 1890 may he gladly
hailed as the opportunity of renew
ing their pledges of true fraternity
with their fellow-men. Let the
golden rule, that epitome of all that
Christmas brings to remembrance,
be observed in all the private and
public relations of life, and the
community whose members do so
will be a happy one- indeed. On this
the eve of the day to be celebrated,
the Uullktix wishes all its patrons
and friends a merry Christmas and
many happy returns of the season.
