Locomotive engineers are tald to have
an especial aversion to moonlight nights,
because they tin on across the track so
many deceptive shadows. Yonder black
blotch may be a man between the lails
or a, stray con. or .1 fallen lwuldcr. The
engir.e-cr's heart haps in sudden terror.
It is that rort of lighting shadows that

One of tho reasons why ISJison. the
Teat inventor, can accomplish such an
enormous amount of work is because ho
does not allow himself to worry. At ono

"Win- don't vou worry a little about it?"
asked one of his troubled associates.
"Wliv should 1?" was tho calm reply.
"You're worrying enough for two."

INTRODUCTION In the. month of De
rmbcr tho rural population of ancient
Italy celebrated a festival called the Sa
turnalia, who.se origin was ascribed to tho
gods. At flrit It was a kind of harvest
home occasion, not unlike our Thanksgiv
ing: Under the Kmpcrors games were In
troduced. The festivities began about the
19th and continued a week, during which
all business vva.s suspended, .social distinc

houses, and nil ciajses made merry. In
the second Christian century, the lllshop
ot Rome in.-tltuted a movable feast in
commemoration of the birth of Christ.
Tho Knstern chuiuhes observed it ill April
and May. In the Fourth Century', after duo
consideration, tho festival of the natlvlty
ans fixed on the 23th of December. It has
been thought by some that this was done
to displace the heathen obcrvanccs above
mentioned. Whether designed or not. It
had tluit effect. For many centuries the
reloicing.at this time of the year has been
tcmpeicd by thoughts of the advent. The

VISITORS Luke records tlie visit or the
shepherds on the morning utter the birth,
nnd the presentation in the temple at Je
rusalem. Joseph and Mary must have re
turned to Bethlehem, perhaps to complete
tho listing ordeis by Caesar. (Luke,
II, 1.) While there other visitors came
from the East, probably from the ancient
home of Abraham. (Gen. x, 23.) They
were called wise men, a class of whom,
Ilko the friends ot Job, devoted them
selves to the study of philosophy and re
ligion. By many it Is believed that they
had access to the prophetic writings of
Israel, vvldch, by the captivity, had been
extensively distributed among the learned.
There was a general expectation through
out tho world that an important person
age wa about to appear. These wi&o men
had seen a star which they had inter
preted as an omen of the birth of a King.
They camo therefore to Jerusalem, tho
capital of the nation, supposing that the
Infant PTinco would be known among
thoso In authority. Their purposo was
praiseworthy. It was no iolo curiosity,
neither spirit of enmity that brought
them, they desired timpiy to pay their
homage, in this they may havo been
moved by the good spirit of God.
ANXIETY The appearance of these
men In Jerusalem, their statement of what
they had seen'before they left home, their
question and declared purpose, caused no
small commotion, ticrou was greatly
troubled. An Edomlte by des-ccnt. a pro
selyte to tho Jewish religion, ho had come
to the throno by war and bloodshed. Am
bitious and cruel, he feared a rival, but
probably knew something of tho old-time
predictions of tho Messiah. Tho rojal
family, especially the sons who succeeded
this monster, would share his r.nxicty.
They would naturally, communicato their
thoughts to subordinates in the I ublic
service, and the feeling of insecurity
would naturally pcrvaup all oiuciai circle:.
It Is possible that the church party and
the people wouhLbe divided. Ploui souls
there were, waiting prayerfully for tho
promised one. and many were vcary of
Roman rule. But, on tho other hand, part
ly because of honor and emolument, many
desired to retain the existing order, quite
content to be under the rule of Cnesar.
(John xix, 12.) The discussions resulting
from this diversity of opinion and interest
would add to the general ctcltcment un
til tho theme would be on every lip.
COUNSEL Wicked thoughts :-nd pur
poses entered into tlio heart of Herod
for the execution of which he needed full
er Information. Where Is this child, the
prospective King? He is not in tlio pilace
nor In Jerusalem. Tho chief priests and
seHlies (ho lllch fllllrl.lls of tlie Church.
were called together ami consulted. They
wvcro not. as a rule, men cf piety (II Chr.
5.XXVI. 14). but they vvero iicqu.iinieii vvitii
tho Scriptures. Seated In the great coun
cil chamber the" represented thu best
learning ot tlie nation. (Matt. ii. 7.) Herod
required them to tll him "wh-re Christ
should be born." I'or' their reply they
searched tho sacred writings, nor needed
they to search long. Tho custodians of
the parchments, vvltli more care ami pre
cision than wo exorcire now. had a bys
tcm ot Indexing by which any subject
might be quickly examined. (John v. S3.)
And every detail concerning tlio great King
might be easily traced. Tho proof text
was found (Micali v. 2), and tlie answer
was given, in the very langucgo of the old
prophet, who had written seven centuries
before. Here is the first Jewish testimony

ORDERS Having obtained the desired
information. Herod called the wise men
and Inquired concerning tho time when
tho star appeared. This was the second
step in working out his llendith design.
Because afterward he ordered the slaugh
ter of all the Innocents 2 years old and
under. It Is thought by some that that in
dicated the time which they gave him.
They were then sent to Bethlehem, with
Instructions to search for the child and
to return and bring Herod word. He would
make these good nnd wise men the ad
vance agents of his crime. W hat con
summate hypocrisy is this? what hell
ish hate? The Ird of Glory began
his career with a murderous King In
search for him. (Psalm II. 2.) It was a
right thing which Herod proposcd-to
worship Jesus, emblematic of that honor
which nil Kings must ultimately pay him.
(Rev. xxl.24). but hi3 concealed purpose was
the earliest expression of that enmity of
the unregenerate heart which pursued him
throughout'his career and caused his Igno
minious death on tlie cross- (Mark xy S2.).
JOUPNEY The wico men departed from
tho presence of Herod, having learned,
what thpy sought, the city of tho Redeem
er's birth. Bethlehem, a little quiet com
mtinitv. perched like a bird's nct among
the rocky hills of Juiiah. lay five miles
south of Jfnifalcm. The home cf Jesse
and his great fon David (I Sam xvl. 4), it
was famed, not in Israel only, but in
other lands as well. As the travelers
moved forward, that ame star which they
had seen In their own country, whose
guidance they had followisl. went be
fore them. By It thev directed their
footsteps.- as the children of Israel
found their way through Hie wililer

God has not limited his gracious manifes

of Abraham. He lias ever had a race
