It is Ohristmas again. HIow
soon the twelve months pass; how
rapidly the days go by. How
short a time it seems since Santa
Claus was with us one year ago;
since the ch:ildren were eng.aged in
the merry frli.es incident to this
king of holidays. Life is indeed
bnt a san, a whisper, a brcath;
and how ioolish to th row it away
in the usel:ss; chase and s.,rceh for
contentment an hIi ia.;in this
world. To-morrow w i f;il the
funds small in many a houshou ld;
and many a bright-eyed boy and
girl will indr the stosiing eont;ains
ing but little, and will wonder i
why the Saint of Festivities did
not come that way and will no
dount, think the kind, merry old
man could not see the small shan
ty, for looking around in search of
''- the big houses and palaces. This
brings a pang to the parents' hearts
and they wish Christmas would
never come. Ah, what a privilege
" for some man, some woman of
k wealth to bring suushinec to such
But let us turn to a more conge
nial phaze. Let us be sure that the t
a: heart is right and then it will be I
t light. We can have a merry
Christmas any way. A kind and t
'bright word of generous greeting, '
of heart felt wishes for a pleasant 2
Atime; frequently brings te the r
heart and soul more sunshine than e
. Rwould a presentr a
Let the day, it will God's holy f
Bbbath, this time, be spent in rev

and conduct befitting the day hal!
Iowred by Jehovah. Let our
art be pure, our thoughts sub- a
mine. Let us give heed to the no- Y

Athing unholy possess us. Let us E
bid all people "All hail, joy and n
