FOR THE PREACHERS.
The Southern Railway Will Fpreaf
ter Issue Interchangeable Per
mits for OGergymen.
Hereafter ministers of the gospel
will not find it necessary to possess
themselves of half a dozen clergy
permits in order to travel over the
railways of the Southern states at
the reduced rates which are usually
Beginning January 7, 190S, the
Southern railway will become a
member of the Southeastern clergy
bureau. This 'bureau .co,ers all of
the railway lines south of the Po
tomac and Ohio rivers and east of
the Mississippi river.
Hereitofore the Southern railway
has issued a clergy permit, good on
ly on the lines of the Southern rail
way, and it has been neee;ary for
misisters to have two clergy books.
After the first of the'y: r it will
only be necessary for a minister to
carry the Southeastern clergy book
and he can ride on an;y of the 'les
in the south, at 2 cents per uile.
These clergy permits are issued by
Mr. Joseph Richardson, chairman of
the Southeastern clergy bureau, At
lanta, Ga., and a charge of $1 is
made to cover the cost of printing,
;posiage, etc. This arra: ement is
quite a convenience to the minis:ers
who- have much traveling to do. as
it saves their carrying ;o many per

December of the drifting snow
-And yule-log blazing bright;
December, when the cold winds blow
Across the fields of white;
When winter's ring is in the ground
And the nights are clear and still,
And the boys go belly-buster down
The slick and shiny hill.
December of the Christmas tree
.A childhood's brighest dream;,
Dece.' .r of the ecstacy
Of hallowed Christmas e'en;
When the 'last sveet lullaby is sung
And- children's whispers egse,
And the wee sweet stockings all are~
Along the inantel-piece.
December of the drum and horn
And bundles slyly hid;
December of the one great morn
Of mornings for a kid;
When the chimes of sweet and mel
Are welcoming the drawn,
And the house rocks with the merry
Of kids with nighties on.
Deeeliber wa.s the ninth month in
the old Ramon calendar, and its
name is from decem (ten). When
Julius Ceaser ..became Big Stick of
the empire, the month contained but
twenty-nine days. 'He 'added two,
more-one more to make ready for
Ohristmas, and another " recover
from it. iChristmas gifts originated
with the Greeks. Hene'e the saying,
"Beware of the :Greeks bearing
gift's." ;Sant'a Claus was invented 'by
the toy mnaufacturers of Neurem
burg, Germany, where the Teddy
-Beams' came from.
The motto for this month will be,
"Shut the door!" Mr. Roosevelt
' an? Mr. 'Bryan will be the leading
presidential candidates, and prohibi-'
.tion will continue the burning issue.
The liquor interests will build walls
around Peoria, Ill., St. Louis, Louis
ville and MWwaukee, and their war
balloon will make daily observations
of the movements of Mrs. Nation.
The 'Anti Saloon League has con
sented 'to let the Winter Solstice of
this year begin at p. m. on the 22nd;
but~ there must be no drinking, and
every one must be in by Curfew.
The 21st will be the 'shortest day in
the year. This will be on Saturday,
and if you are at church next day and
stay for the sermon, you will notice
that the 29nd is much longer.
The m, will be full on the 19th,
and the .sign of the zodiac for the
month will be Capreiornus the Goat.
This will make butter go up, and send
kids to Sunday school.
The old mill pond will freeze again,
And every one will skate,
The mollycoddle, modest swain,
Will thither go with Kate.
She'll slip in such a way that she
Will see a brilliant star,
And he will deeply blush to see
How long her stockings are.

nough, so another was rented near
