A Profitable Resolution
Everyone Should Make
T HE passing of Christmas
week and the last days of
another year, while carry
ing with them the regrets of all,
have, like everything else, their
brighter side. The death of one
year means the birth of another
and with that birth comes in
spiration for new resolutions
and for new endeavors. The
New Year resolution has come
to be looked upon as too much
of--a joke. But they are still
made, nevertheless. Few people
there are who are not this week
and who next week will not be
con temnplating some change in
their routine for the new year.
Trhey may not stick to it, but
they will be better off for every
week they do keep the resolu
tion intact. The Sentinel can
be of great aid to you in preserv
ing such a determination. Get
the habit of reading its Ads.

Christmas is nearly here. How
shall we spend it? I do not
know how it shall be spent, but
I do know how it ought to be
I spent. I know it ought not to
be spent in drinking and frolic
ing around, butif It is a celebra
tion of the birth of Christ it
ought to be spent in a sober,
thoughtful way, remembering,
as far as possible, the poor and
needy, and as far as in our pow
er lies render such assistance as
we can to relieve the sufferings
of those around us. Remember
that on the day we call Christ
mas God gave this world His
Son to die that we might live.
Let us in givin- and receiving
bear in inind this gift of God to
men. Let us spend the day in
trying to make this old world
brighter and better. H.
