Miss Kntherine Meyers fur
scarf was stolen at the Union
Station in St. Louis Christmas
FA'e. Miss Meyers was stand
ing at the station gate w.aiting to
get in to catch the train for Ste.
Genevieve, her ticket was knock
ed out of her hand and when
she stooped over to pick it up
some one grabbed her scarf and
disappeared in the crowd.
A friend stood at the door;
In either tight-closed hand
Hiding richgifts, three hundred
and three score;
Waiting to strew them daily
o'er the land,
Each drop he treads in it, and
Even as the sower.
It cannot be made truithful till
Friend, come thou like a friend,
And whether bright thy face,
Or dim with clouds we cannot
We'll hold our patient hand,
each in his place,
And trust thee to the end;
Knowing thou leadest onward to
Where there are neither days,
nor mouths, nor years.
Miss Mullock, in this beautiful
poem gives our ideas better than
we can express them. The idea
of each day being a gift, hidden
from us until its hour comes, is
a pretty thought. So many gifts,
so much time to use lor eiuier
profit or loss, and so many hands
are held out eagerly for the
coming days, looking for them
to bring happiness, or gain of
some' kind. The spirit some
times grows faint before the un
known future, consequently it
Is enough to take one day at a
time and try to make that good.
It is hard enough even then and
sometimes it is best to go hour
by hour. One day at a time is
the secret of every noble life.
One day at a time taken up
bravely with its duties faithful
ly done as they come, its trials
patiently borne, its temptations
firmly resisted, its cross cheer
ly carried, its joys rightly used,
and its gladness gathered from
every hour as it passes on. In
stead of making many resolu
tions at the first of the year to
be quickly broken, let us strive
tp meet each day bravely, and
take what it brings unquestion-ingly-
Oh, hang some lamp like hope
Above the unknown way,
Kind year to give our spirit
And our hand strength to work
while it is day.
The Illinois' Southern Railroad

Attorney W. F. Carter of St.
Louis, who represents a number
jof clients, among which is the
St. Joseph Lead Co. and the
Mississippi River and Bonne

Clearing Houso Association.

intend to expend $300,000 in
putting the railroad in shapo
and make many jmprovoments
and commence operation as soon

in December 1919. Many of its
employees who resided in Ste.
Genevieve had to seek employ
ment' elsewhere and sections of
the county were without rail

Christmas was quite generally
observed in our community. A
largo number of our former
residents came home to observe
the day. with their relatives and
friends; some young people at
tending schools abroad were
spending their Christinas va
cation at home; the beautiful il
luminated Cheistmas tree added
to the festive spirit; there were
a number of private and public
social gatherings which were
much enjoyed by all those who
attended them, so that, indeed,
it was a merry Christmas. The
religious part of the great day
was quite generally and solemn
ly observed also. At midnight
there was a Solemn High Muss
which was so 'largely attended
that every available seat was
taken. The church was beauti
fully decorated and illuminated
and presented a scene altogether
brilliant and inspiring. The
choir deserves special mention
for its splendid rendering of
Gounod's Mass. Also at the
eight and ten there were large
congregations. The Carol sing
ing at 8 o clock accompanied by
instrumental music was narti
cularly pleasing. About 800 re
ceived Holy Communion.
