Youth has vision. It 5$ young eyes
that see the' invisible. Wlien we
were children we saw phoits, and
Santa Claus. and anccls. and ciants.
They were real. W'4 played with
them. Old people wondered why we
laughed and capered and shouted.
When we told them they shook their
heads and smiled indulgently. Hav
ing eyes they saw not. and having
ears they heard not, what we saw
and heard. Qod has put into our
young eyes and ears some subtle
alembic that transformed the beg-
early elements of the commonplace
into the glory and trappings of
knights and kings and courts. l)r,

What would be the condition In
Hawaii If the average Income of hlg
business were six per cent and ll.o

to put In general circulation? Tint
Is the query that Mr Keefe seems to
hao constantly In mind.
Thero may bo some doubt whether
tho Federal Government would iny
more than $3.".0,000 for the Maliu'ta

no question of Honolulu's readiness
to mnko up the difference by a city
Appropriation from public funds.

All tho material blessings that could
be reasonably asked huo been show
ered upon Hawaii by a kindly Prov
idence in the lust year.
No community on oarth could ap
proach the holiday season In a hap
pier spirit If happiness may bo se
cured through material prosperity
Tho fields hnve yielded nn abund
ance. The products of our Industry
have been In demand In the world's
markets at tho highest prices. The
most favorable conditions hao pre
vailed In overy lino of activity In
which our fellow citizens arb engaged
for a. livelihood. Tho country has en
Joyed freedom from serious dumngo
or disaster from tho elements or nny
form of pestilence.
Abundant prosperity has reigned
on overy hand. The community ns
a whole comes to the Christmas sea
son with Its lap literally brimming
full of the good things of life, fig
ured on the basis of material things.
And all this avails nothing If there
be not Charity.
Not the parsimonious, brass bund,
sanctimonious and -pretentions char
ity that degrades both the giver and
the beneficiary. Hut tho whole
hearted, contagious, generous char
ity toward our fellowmen that uplifts
und makes the brotherhood of man
more of a reality; tho charity thut
makes kindly nets, kind words, mid
good deeds pour forth ns naturally
and luxuriously as tho land hns giv

cost Is not counted. The spirit of the
