A MERRY CHRISTMAS.
Shrouded for many months in the
realization that our country is act
ually at war; seeing our mothers and
daughters tremble at its first touch
as we bid good-bye to our sons and
brothers we welcome Christmas
with its cheerfulness and gladness.
Let's make "Merry Christmas" more
merry, for there is enough merriment
iu a merry Christmas to last through
many months of gloom and through
many stories of disaster. Turn back
the pages of yesterday, and bring
out the old-fashioned Christmas. First,
go to the church and thank your
Maker for the birth of your Saviour,
who gave his life to save your soul;
then ask him to give strength
those who are fighting for the real
chilixation that will we'd all races
in one great homogenious race free
of hatreds, prejudices and animosities
that all men may live iu peace un
til they deliver their soul. Make the
children happy, for the laughter of
children is like the song of the an
gels, it gladdens the heart and in
spires the spirit. Give as freely as
you can where it will make some one
happiness, remembering that it is
"more blessed to give Uuin to re
ceive." Then as a climax, lay Mr.
Hoover's advice aside for one day
and livn eat and drink ami then
