"Christmas is a good time, a
kind, forgiving, lovable, charat
able, pleasant time, the best time
I know of in the long calendar of
If Christmas is not this kind of
a time to us, we have nobody but
ourselves to blame for it. Since
Christ came to earth and gave
his life for the sons of men, it
has been more blessed to give
than to receive and there is no
more beautiful way in which to
commemorate the birth of our
Savior than in taking thought
for "each otherin doing some
thing, however small, to show
our good will toward our fellow
man. There is no better time in
all the world to lay aside the
greed of getting and give our
selves over to thoughts of noth
ing but giving. We are all living
in the same world and we all
need the help of human sym
pathy. It is a little thing to give,
but a big thing to get.
'And so as Tiny Tim observed
God bless us every one."
Let Have Peace.
The Russo-Japanese war is
proving to be one of the memor
able wars of the world's historv.
The notable successes of the Jap
anese on every field has astound
ed the world and compelled its
admiration while the heroic de
fense of Port Arthur has amazed
us all. Six months ago an Asso
ciated Press despatcn to the Pio
neer declared that Port Arthur
was wobbling, but despite the
most brilliant successes of the
attacking Japanese Port Arthur
still holds out and may hold out
for months. There are parallels
in history but none that are more
gloriousbut it is glory for Rus
sian and glory for Japanese at a
fearful cost. Let us have peace.
The world has no right to longer
allow such wholesale taking of life
simply to satisfy the "honor" of
a nation. We are simply stand
ing by and permitting awful, in
excusable murder without cause.
It is high time for the powers
of the world to interfere.
The Senatorship for Sale.
Is it possible that the senator
ship from Minnesota is to'be
bought and that the successor to
Senator Clapp will occupy a seat
paid for with a price?
A member of the legislature
from St. Paul has charged that
he has been offered one thousand
dollars to sign a prepared state
ment attacking Senator Clapp as
the tool of certain corporate in
terests and as not favoring cer
tain regulations of rates for rail
roads. At the same time that
this statement is given to the
public another St. Paul member
of the legislature issued what is
claimed to be the identical state
ment for which the price of a
thousand was offered.* Whether
such an offer of money is legally
a bribe the Pioneer does not
know but of the moral iniquity
of the proposition there can be
no question in any man's mind.
It is right that the public
should suspend judgement in
this matter until their story is
established beyond question or
utterly disproved. For the fair
name of the state of Minnesota
the Pioneer hopes that it is not

-Wine of Cardui Cures all these Troubles.
There is hardly a home where some
woman is not the victim of female weak
ness in some form. In your home there is
a sufferer. There is another in your neighbor's home.
Wine of Cardui will cure you, your sister, your mother or your
daughter. It will cure your neighbor.
Over 1,500,000 suffering women have been cured by Wine of Cardui.
Hundreds of thousands of well and happy women have their health
because some interested friend took them a bottle of Wine of Cardui or
told about what this wonderful woman's tonic would do.
Will you not follow Mrs. Smithers' example by giving Wine of
Cardui a trial and then tell other sufferers of your cure?

The pretty love story which
furnishes heart interest to the
romantic military drama "Heart
and Sword," is a jewel of sim
plicity yet of sufficient strength
to hold the attention of the audi
ence until the final curtain re
unities the lovers "and they all
live happily ever after." Such
stories are a welcome relief from
the problem play which so pro
dominates the drama of today.

Ashburnham, Ont, April 18,
1903.I think it is only right
that I should tell you what a won
derful effect Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy has produced.
The day before Easter I was so
distressed with a cold arfd cough
that I did not think to be able to
take any duties the next day, as
my voice was almost choked by
the cough. The same day I re
ceived an order from you for a
bottle of your Cough Remedy.
I at once procured a sample bot
tie and took about three doses of
the medicine. To my great relief
the cough and cold had completely
disappeared and I was able to
preach tbree times on Easter Day.
I know that this rapid and ef
fective cure was due to your
Cough Remedy. I make this tes
timonial without solicitation, be
ing thankful to have found such a
Godsent remedy. Respectfully
yours, E. A. Langfeldt, M. A.,
