Tho editor of the Holomua got
tho sub-editor of Ka Loo into jail
and under decreo of banishment for
challenging him to fight. Now tho
valorous editor of tho Holomua trios
to distract attention from this nn
chivalrous treatmontjof an opponent,

himself, by crying "Coward!" against
others. Lot it horoaftor bo called
Rep. R. YV Wilcox tho other dajr
declared tho Ministrj' would stay in

Rep. J. E. Bush, leader of another

the native Liberals aro tired of be

This paper is issued on Christmas
Eve. To-morrow is Sunday, whoroou
no paper will bo issued. It is also
Christmas Day, when no paper
would bo issued anyway. Tho only
way editors, reporters, printers,
electricity men, carriers and yes
roadors oven cau have any kind of a
Christmas Day is by having no papor
to bother about getting out, or go
ing out to pick up and road. Day
aftor to-morrow is Government
Christmas Day. Wo havo always
had a benign government, leastwise
in that way, horo. There is nothing
red-letterod, particularly, in not hav
iug to work on Sunday in this coun
try. So tho rulers of tho land, when a
calendar holiday falls on a Sunday,
invariably make the actual holiday
noxt day boforo or aftor. This time
it is aftor. So thoro will bo no papor
noxt Mouday oithor. Under thoso
circumstance.", therefore, tho only fit
opportunity for printing a fow words
on tho subject of Christinas is in this
papor. If it is only to drive out poli
ticsof which, by tho way, wo havo
had surfoit enough this year to spoil
our appetites for tho Christinas
feast a signal sorvico will bo con
ferred on our readers.
What is Christmas? It stands for
tho annivorsary of tho birth of Josus
of Nazaroth, the Saviour of Man
kind. History places tho beginning
of tho festival's keeping by Chris
tians in tho second century, well to
ward its close. Some of thoso early
Christians held it in May, some in
April, others in January, and tho
critics declare tho true day could
not be tho 2th of December. Still
tho real day in these times is the
2oth of Decombor, and it would bo
pretty hard to havo it changed now.
So many of tho peoples of Christen
dom livo in tho cold zones of the
earth, and Christmas has such a
tremendous inlluonco in warming
hearts, that it would bo as e.TSy to
shift tho poles as to alter tho day
kept for Christmas. Perhaps there
is a might' lesson to bo learned
from tho fact that tho exact birth
day of Christ is not necessary to tho
celebration of tho event in its true
significance. Tho motto of Christ
mas "Peace on earth, good will to
ward mou" was not proclaimod by
tho herald angols for ono day, but
for overy day of tho centuries to
elapse boforo tho ushering in of that
everlasting era of poaco and good
will of which tho angols' proclama
tion was tho prophecy. Christmas,
therefore, in its spirit if not in its"
material s3'mbols of joy, should bo
tho pattern of ovory day in tho year.
Thon, as on any spot of God's foot
stool the worship of God is accepta
ble, through tho now way, and not
restricted to any tomplo or moun
tain, as by tho old way, so may tho
exorcise of tho sontimonts of univer
sal brotherhood not bo cribbed,
cabined and confined in tho Christ-mas-tido,
but bring an oven How of
the blessings of poaco and goodwill
through all tho days of all tho years.
Christmas, thon, is tho time for good
resolutions, especially, as to our
relations with our follow-croaturos.
Lot it bo tho date from which ovory
wrong, unjust or spitoful word or
action toward our brother aud sister
mortals shall not blemish tho calou
dar of our lives. From honco let tho
flow of the milk of human kindness,
stimulated by tho associations of
this glad season, not bo diminished,
nor tho firos of fraternal sj-mpnthios
be banked with the ashes of sordid
interests aud solfish motives. Lot
ovory da' havo its duty of distress
relioved or help bestowed whore it
may bo needed, of independent in
dustry and thrift oucouragod, or
helpless poverty made moro tolora
blo by unostentatious bonovolonce.
Such fruits as theso would give our
Christmas a present charactor that
would a thousand timos mako up for
its past uncortain chronology.
Christmas-keeping of tho best sort
is making merry Christmas for ot hers.
Charles Dickens, who is tho modern
apostlo of Christmas, concludes his
story of "The Holly-Tree" thus: "I
began at tho Holly-Tree, by idlo ac
cident, to associato tho Christmas
time of year with human intorost,
and with some inquiry into, and
some earo for, tho lives of thoso by
whom I find myself surrounded. I
hopo that I am none tho worse for
it, and that no ono near mo or afar
off is tho worse for it. And I say,
May tho greon Holly-Treo flourish,
sticking its roots deep into our
Euglish ground, aud having its
germinating qualities carried by tho
birds of Hoavon all over tho world!"
Had Dickons lived only till now ho
would havo found in thoso mid-ocean
isles ample ovidonces that tho birds
had boon at least thus far and per
formed their mission so woll that
everything typified by tho holly-troo
hero flourished in tropical luxuri
ance. For Christmas has come to bo
ono of tho brightest fostivals of tlio
And now our little lay sormon is
ended. It will be road by some in
whoso Christmas-keoping tho hear
ing of proaching is not scheduled.
May it help them to benefit by tho
festival as woll as thoso who per
form thoir Christmas devotions un
der ecclesiastic arches. All will bo
benefited at this soason who mako
for tho Christmas motive a lodging
place in their hearts for ovory day.
Not in "this mount" nor any "tem
ple" will tho fountain of poaco and
good will dischargo its blessings, uti
loss tho frequenters of mount or
tomplo conform to tho standard of
Christianity sot by tho "Ancient
"He prayeth best, who lovoth best
All things botli great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
Ho made uud loveth nil."

Saturday, Dec. 84, 1892.
Practically this is the last
call for the Holidays. Your
opportunities for purchasing
remembrances for your friends
are limited and you must grasp
them today or be black listed.
Christmas has crept upon us
almost unawares, this year,
because the attention of the
people has been upon the
possible action of the U. S.
Congress in the matter of
sugar duty, rather than on the
duty you owe those who have
tried during the past year to
make life happy. It is time,
now, to disconnect your
thoughts from things foreign
and center them upon Christ
We have never had more
appropriate articles for the
holidays, never had Onyx
Tables to compare with those
shown now. For the parlor
or bed room nothing is prettier,
and, if you wish to "paint the
lily" get a lamp from us to set
on the table. You may have
seen more elegant art lamps
than is in our store but we
doubt it. We're the only
people who sell really beauti
ful lamps and we've never had
anything quite so elegant as
we show you this year.
In silver-ware we have some
odd pieces, queer designs that
your eye will not weary of.
We have a set for a child
who has outgrown a bottle and
clamors for spoon victuals.
It consists of a plate, bowl and
spoon beautifully engraved
and set in a handsome green
plush case. The child that is
presented with this will grow
an inch a day both ways.
We have but one and the fond
parent who wishes to add sun
shine to the days of his baby
had better nab it; tomorrow
may be too late. There's lots
of babies in town but only one
set like this.
Again we mention cut glass,
not so much because we want
to sell it but that we want you
to have good things to put on
your table. "Next to a 10
dinner for Christmas or New
Years cut glass is the one
thing needful. No one will
dispute the fact that it adds
tone to the' table and reflects
a refined taste on the part of
Read the fashions and you
will find that Chatelaines are as
much in vogue as they were
five years ago. We had a
few of them last year and one
was left over; rather than
carry it over again it will go
to you at half what you were
asked last year. Its appear
ance has not changed a
particle and looks as if it just
came in from the lactory.
As a gift to a gentlemen we
can suggest nothing better
than a smoking set. They're
made in rough silver lined
with yellowish stuff that looks
like gold. It is an inexpensive
trifle and will ever be a
reminder of the fact that at
least one person was thought
ful ol his comlort. It your
ideas soar to more expensive
gifts the oxydized shaving
mugs and brushes will proba
bly be more in keeping.
Take the motto on one of
them, "A clean shaven face
invites an embrace" and you
derive as much profit as if
you had waded through a half
dozen volumes on "Oscillatory
Exercise as a Promoter of
Disease." Every man looks
better for having shaved and
this being the case the proper
thing is to present the one
upon whom your affections
are most centered with one of
these mugs. Don't you agree
with us in this instance?
Two days this week the
packers in our store were busy
storing away Haviland China
received by the Transit. The
demand for the 2196 pattern
in Haviland has been so great
that we ran short of some of
the dishes. With this late in
voice we are able to supply
you in any quantity from one
piece to fifty dozen.
