In his annual report Fourth Assist
ant Postmaster Bristow recommends
that the maximum pay of a rural car
rier be increased to $750 annually for
a route of twenty-five miles or more in

are surely worth that salary.
It is gratifying to soe tho price of
cotton so well sustained, and doubly

Reports from Washington indicate
that there is some danger that Con

Tho keynote of Christmas joy is
"Peace on earth, good will to men."
Tho first Christmas day that ever
dawned brought rejoioing in its wake.
On that day there was born in Bethle
hem, Judea, a Saviour, ?rho is Christ
the Lord. For those weary with sin.
for those oppressed with sorrows, for
the troub'ad in mind, for the weak and j
helpless He oame. But not to these
alone. To tho joyful and happy ones,
to those rich in this world's goods, to
the successful and prosp?rons He

And now to the outcast and to the
weary one, to the rieh man and to the
joyful child He says the words, "Learn
of me." On Christmas day, at least,
*'let all wrath and clamor and evil
