E3E SPIRIT OF THE 1918 CHRIST
- We are glacl it is ours once more to
greet- our readers with, a bright and
merry Christmas. It seems but yes
terday that we sent a like message to
you, and yet a year has flown by.
May .your hcpnes be bright the dear
children of your household happy
an!d the great wish and hope of your
hearts in abundant measure be real
ized this Christmas tide.
Marvelous is the influence by
"which the Christmas spirit moves
the hearts of men to joyful and
generous impulses. It seems -as if in
this'era of the year an unseen angel
touches the invisible spring of an
.unused door in normal human nature
Bind fills them with joy and sunshine.
iWnut a world of generous happi
ness it twirls around us! Those
-whtom Providence has prospered 'are
"busy "with their loving devices to
make home happy, to crown Ihe wan
ing 'year with goodness, to reward
fidelity, patience and love, to reap
the joys that flock into the Christ
inas season like homing doves from
pJar circling light. None would
deny them all the riches of such ex
perience" of this season Whose glory
is the advent of Him who came to
minister to -the poor and the sick and
the .downcast, and not to be feted
juxi filled with costly gifts.
'To us 4ix) season of the year awak
ens so much 'of tenderness and fellow
ieslfag towards all humanity as
Christmas. Jt is not only a time of
weit wishing, but kindly doing, with
a, vHtl of sympathy that would turn
m one away empty, withhold no ten
der -greeting, no act of kindness, no
word- of love that migfyt -contribute
to7 another's happiness. No sacrifice
seems too great that we might not
Jbleas one another no yielding up
of self too trying that we (might
smooth some life, no trial of pati
jence too great that we might not
ibear and forbear with a spirit vexed
-with many things. An appreciative
jCttrfetmas will rule the baseness,
rudeness, roughness out of any life,
.Christmas is the time of love. Peace
aiid good will is spoken of it. Ill
'Wilt knows nothing about it. Harsh,
unkind words take the spirit out of
th occasion. If Christmas means
anything it is a day of good things,
gracious deeds, generous impulses,
abfrle aspirations, helpfulness, glad
ness, brightness, bouyancy, the shad
ows fleeing away and the sunlight
gti-eaming in and thus we make
T-ae Merry Christinas ring
"" ' And drive away our fear;
, As' it arrives we brighten lives
' , And fill them full of cheer.

STATE FOOD ADMINISTRATION"
OUT OE BUSINESS.
The United States Food Adminis
tration has ceased to be. This is the
order received by County Administra
tor Lawrence Mitchell from the'Sta
and National headquarters. , The
county and district food administra
tion office will be closed immediately,
as there is no further need for such
an organization. During the past
year, through the service of the Food
Administration, by the Grain Corpor
ation, the Sugar Equalization Board,
the price list? committee, a corps of
inspectors and supervisors, it .as
been made possible for persons to
have had food commodities which,
if there had been no regulation,
would have been denied them. Prices
have been such "that everyone could
afford products "which would have
been only for those possessing ample
means had not prices been regulated
by the Food Administrator.
, Fred M. Sackett," however, stated
in his communication to the local'
Food Administration bfflcials" that he1
desired that the volunteer members'
of the organization be in readiness
to be called together at any time in
the near .future.o"
