At last I have what ..I longed for, a
Christmas eve in the Holv Land. This
is the time of year that Christ landed.
He was a December Christ. This is
the chill air through which he de
scended. I look up throtgh these
Christmas skies, and I see no'loosenel
star hastening southward to halt above
Bethlehri, but all the stars suggest
the Star of Bethlehem. No more need
that any of them run along the sky
to point downward. In quietude they
kneel at the feet of him who, though
once axm.exile, is now enthroned for
ever. Fresh up from Bethlehem, I
am full of the scenes sug"gested by a
visit to that villao-e. You 1now that
whole region of bethlehem is famous
in Bible story. There were the wav
ing harvests of Boaz, in which Ruth
gleaned for* herself and weeping Na
omi. There David the warrior was
thzraty, and three.men of unheard of
self denial broke through the Philis
tine army to get him a drink. It was
to that region that Joseph and Mary
came to have their names enrolled in
the census. That is what the Scripture
means whei it says ther came "to be
taxed,!' for people did 'not in those
days rush after the assessors of tax
any more than they now do.
THE HOLY ONb IN THE 3IANGEa.
The village inn was crowded with
the attangers who had come up by the
command of government to have their
names in the census, so that Joseph
and Mary were obliged to lodge in the
stables. You have seen some of those
large, .stone buildings, in the center of
which the camels were kept, while run
ning out from this center in all direc
tionsthere were rooms, mn one of which
Jsuswas born. Had his parents been
more showily appare'led I have no
do.ubt, they would _have found more
and kindled fires, were watching
their flocks, when hark! to the
sound of voices strangely sweet.
Can it be that the maidens
'of Bethlehem- have come out to
serenade the weary shepherds? But
now a light stoop upon them like
the mornmng, so that the flocks arise,
shaking their snowy fleece and bleat
ing to their drowsy young. The
heavens are filled with armies of light,
anid the earth quakes under the har
mony as, echoed back from cloud to
cloud, it rings over the midnight hills:
."Glory to God in the highest, and on
earth peace, good will to nen!" It
sems that the crown of royalty and
deminion and power which Christ left
hindl him was huno on the sky in
sht of Bethlehem. Who knows" but

taken by the wise men for the star

My subject also strikes at the delu
sion that the religion of Christ is
dolorous and grief infusing. The inu
sic that broke through the midnight
heavens was not a dirge, but an an
them. It shook joy over the hills. It
not only dropped upon the shepherds.
but it sprang upward among the
thrones. The robe of a Saviour's
rizhteousness is not black. The Chris
tian life is not made up of weeping
and cross bearing and war waging.
Through the reveration of that Christ
mas ight I find that religion is not a
groan, but a song. In a world of sin
and sick bed and sepulchers, we must
have trouble; but in the darkest night
the heavens part with angelic song.
You may, like Paul, be shipwrecked,
but I exhiort you to be of good cheer,
for you shall tll escape safe to
the land. Religion does not show
itself in the elongation of the
face and the cut of the garb. The
Pharisee who puts his religion into
his phylactery has none left for his
heart. Fretfulness and complaining
do not belong to the family of Chris
tian graces which move into the heart
when the devil moves out. Christian
ity does not frown upon amusctnefits
and recreations. It is not a cv.nic, it
is not a shrew, it chokes no laughter,
it quenches no light, it defaces no art.

CHRIST'S CHURCH Ev GR~wING.
My subject also impresses me with
the effect of Christ's mission upward
and downward. Glory to God. peace
to man. When God sent his son into
the world, angels discovered some
thing new in God, something they
had never seen before. Not powe-,
not wisdom, not love. They knew all
that befor-e. But when God sent his
Son into this world then th~e mgels
saw the spiirit of self denial in God,
the spirit of self sacrifice in God. It
-is easier to love an angel on his throne
than a thief on the cr-oss, a seraph in
his worship than an adulteress in her
crime. When the angels saw God
the God-the God who would not al
low the most insignificant angel in
heaven to be hurt-give up his Son,
his Son, his only, only Son, they saw
somethinig that ticey had never- thought
ofbefor-e, anid I do not wonder- that
when Christ starnted out on that pil
grimage the angels in heaven clapped
their wings in t-iuinph and called on
all the hosts of heaven to hellp them
celebrate it. and sang so loud that the
Bethlehem shepherds heard it: "Goryv
to God in tihe highest."
But it was also to be a mission of
peace to man. Infinite holiness- ac

For t'wo peoples so distinct from each
other in their physical structure and
between whom there are such barriers
natually to develope in seperate and
distinct lives is about as reasonable as
to suppose that two kings can reign
on the same thr one at one and the

strong and convincing that we will
never attain full manhood here. These
are the shadows of coming events.

The Farmers to Organize.
CHIcAGO. Jan. 4.-A despatch from
ta panic, exists among the farmers of
Davidsan and adjoining counties, in
middle Tennessee. A splendidly orggn
ized band of horse thieves hasu been up
erating there for months without let or
hindrance. It is estimated that within
two weeks, 200 horses have been stolen,
and run into Kentucky fastnesses where
it is next to impossible to follow thenm or
the thieves. Not one of these animals
has beeni re'aovered. It ja supposed the
thieves have a regular underground

The Grady Monumeant Fund.
The Grady monument fundi has now
reached nearly $15,000. The nuoscrip
tions thus far are almost all from Atlanta.
Young men of other parts of Georgia are
interestng themselves, and while no re
turns have yet neen received, the indica
tions are that subscriptions from o'ther
Geogia towns and cities will increase
the fund to at least double the present
amount. The largest subscription from
the North came from the directors of the
Fourth National Bank of New York, ac
compnied Oy the following telegram:
"The directors of the Fourth National
Bank of the city of New York are in
duced, by the personal esteem and admi
ration which they entertain .'or the high
character and distinguished public ser
vices of the late Henry W. Grady of At
lanta, to subscribe the sum of tive hun
dred dollars to the monument fund, a
check for which I send by mail this
day. Yours respectfully.

A Gift of Negroes to New Enaglandl.
There is one direction by which the
surplus colored population of the South
might be diverted elsewhere to the ad
vantage of the South, the blacks, and
the North. In the Middle and :New
England cities and towns there is a
grestscarcity of household labor, atnd
in the country a similar scarcity of farm
labor. The South is overrun with
swarms of worthless household servants.
If schools were established for making
these efficient cooks, chambermaids and
nurses the North would take the entire
supply. Gradually they would be fol
-wed by their male relations, who
would find in the North plenty of
farm work to which they are accustom
ed, and those who camne would have the
means of support awaiting them. The
change would lbe a natural and gradual
one, and more likely to be successful on
that account than any abrupt artificial
