Whatever may have been the
history of'celebratlng the 25th day
of December, as It has come down to
ub through P,agan service Pagan
and Christian iand the story is a
long. one. We have the custom now
of celebrating the 25th day of De
cember in commemoration and hon
or of the birth of JesuB Christ.
Well informed people know that
it is. not known definitely just the
day or even the year in which Christ
the world's Savior, was -born. But
this lack of specific knowledge as, to
the exact time need not, and does
not, detract from the importance or
joy of the event.
' We grown people people have vivid
recollections of the Christmas eve
and ChristmaB morning; how we
carefully hung up our clean sock or
stocking and went to bed wishing
that morning would quickly come;
how we rushed out of bed in the cold
to our .corner to see what dear Old
Santa bad left us as he went speed
ing over the country on his sled
Brawn by his tandem hitched rein
deer. While we have learned our error
as to some of the facts concerning
"Old Santa," the grc.it fact and
truth in it all abides and will ever
Christmas means we celebrate
the coming into the world of One
who is our friend. Ono who brings
to us rich and joyous gifts. One
who wants to bring .us happiness
and comfort to the full..
Some of the Blessings of Christmas:
There are many toilers in this
great country of ours. Like Gold
smith's toiler, they, go from early
morn till late at ' ere, Christmas
day calls bis weary arms and legs
and head to rest. ,
Again: We who love each other
so dearly, through ties of blood, get
separated through the weeks and
nontlur. Business call 3 us away.
Christmas is the one Great occasion
for home coming and loro gathering
How befitting that the time for cele
brating the. coming of Christ into
the world should be thus used in
bringing, together those who love so
strongly and unselfishly.

When his stove blew apart niul

ing brands of the 'Are gave him the
scare of his .life, a. resident of Dum
merston, Vt., learned that it was not
profitable to steal wood from a far
mer's supply of fuel.
.For some time persons living in
the little town have missed chickens
from their hen roosts and wood from
their woodpiles. Suspicion had rest
ed on a man living in a little shack
in the town.
One of the farmers selected a fine,
chunk of wood from his supply,
bored a hole in it, put in a good
charge of powder, plugged up the
hole and sawed- off the plug. Then
ho placed the chunk back In the pile
in a prominent place, where the
thief wcvild be sure to see it.
. The stove in the suspeoted man's
shack was blown up, and the pieces
wore piled outside the cabin. The
man was not injured nor tho shack
