iThe earth has grown old with its
burddn of care,
But at Christmsa it always is

!And its soul full pf music breaks
forth on the air, k
When the song of the angels
is sung. '
It is- coming, qld earth, it is com
"" ing tonight; i 1
On the snowflakes that covered
" ' thy sod ' v
he feet pf theChrischild fall
gentle and white,
nd the voice of the Christ-child
tells- out through;thE night,
That mankind are thetchlfduen
' of -God. "

Provided one can survive the
shock, says Prof. Berzoine, a
Freriqh scientist, 1,000 volts of
electricity has the food value of
a porterhouse, steak. Turn on the
current! We've stood the shock
of a bill for porterhouse.
