v CHRISTMAS REBORN
My heart's thrdbbin' like It 'used to, .old
- tunes play along its strings
At the thought of Christmas comln' and
the thought of Christmas things.
And the thought of little children climbin'
out of little bed a
With the Christmas candles throwin' gold
en glory on their heads.
And a-standin' like I've seen them all
- about the Christmas tree;
There is memories a-plenty comes alons
; the years to me..
But no memories are sweeter than the
memories that come
Of the fur-off Christmas mornin's and the
children with their drums. .
Little children tippytoeln down the stairs
in nighties white.
Then a sudden rush an' clatter, and a
squealin' of delight "
When they see the tree a-standin In the
crispy Christmas dawn.
And a look has made them certain that"
old Santa Claus is gone
For although -they write' to Santa tellin
- what they'd like to get -They
are always sort o&okeered that they
will find him theri till yet
When they're gettln' up so early, so they
. give a squeal to see
That he's got his work all finished and
has left the Christmas tree. .
Children late , years ain't been gettln all
they writ him for.
For his work was interfered with by the
horrors of the war;
But the war is done and ended, and we've.
got to rise and go y
All the gaits for this here Christmas that
we ever used to know:
Got to do our shoppln' early, and enough
for years gone by;
Oof to bring back Santa Claus and get
the Christmas tree, an' try
To forget, that there -was hatred in the
world, an' grief and tears;
Got to do our shoppln' now and brighten
up the comln' years.

CHRISTMAS ACTS . AS TONIC
Happy and Exhilarating Mental Spirit
Has Good Effect on People, De
clare Medical Observers.
Close observers in the ranks of the
medical profession have noted one very,
interesting fact concerning the Christ
mas season that It generally has a
good tonic effect upon their patients.
In explanation of this the London
Lancet says that since Christmas has
come to be regarded as ff time for
good cheer, a unfYersal feeling of con
tentmeflt and happiness Is engendered
at this time of joyousness, routine Is
for a while relieved, a certain fresh
ness Is given to the dally round, dif
ferences of opinign are sunk, and a
charitable spirit prevails. Is It, by
the way, hoping for too'much that the
season of good fellowship should leave
some lasting effect upon the manners
and methods of all?
It may not be easy to trace exactly
why this sense of exhilaration and
well-being comes with the advent of
Christmas, for the psychological fac
tors concerned are not simple. But
the main point is that the mental state
does everybody good,, and the annual
festivity Is just as excellent an insti
tution as the rescrIptan.4f,the.Dhysii,
elan which gives tone and vigor to the
struggle in life's race. There Is no
need nowadays, thanks to the good
sense of the people and the counsels
of their medical advisers, to moralize
about the evils of a stupid indulgence
In food, alcohol and tobacco on a fes
tive occasion such as the present.
Practically everybody realizes the
great physiological advantages of be
ing wise on a merry occasion and the
disadvantages of being a fool.
Many more persons than ' formerly
feel where use ends and abuse begins,
and they act sensibly accordingly ; and
so far from It being a crime to make
the season festive by enjoying, on' a
little extended scale perhaps, the
creature comforts of life, some decided
good is done to both the mental and
physical health of the individual.
The festive season may, therefore,
be welcomed which brings cheer to
thousands, which Induces the generous
and charitable to brace the mental and
physical functions of the community
at large, giving it the opportunity of
relinquishing its business and its wor
ries for a time, to start again re
freshed and ready for "the trivial
round, the common task." The pre
scription "A Merry Christmas" is
sound so' long as the "signature" of
