We Should Hang Garlands.
The singing of carols in English vil
lages was a good old custom and ught
to be revived, as well as the lighting
of the Yule log on Christmas eve, for
the memory of the English Christmas
lingers ever in the British heart, wher
ever he may be. In the early days at
Jamestown, Va., the cradle of English
civilization on this western continent,
John Smith says: "The extreme cold,
frost, rain and snow caused us to keep
Christmas among the savages, where
we were never more merry. nor had
more good oysters, fish, flesh, wild fowl
and good bread nor ever had bet
ter fires in England." Kipling, too,
refers to the memory of Yuletide in his
"Black Sheep" with the couplet, "At
home they are making,merry, twixt
the white and scarlet berry." And so
we should garland the house with trail
ing pine, hang the wreaths of holly in
the window and the mistletoe 'neath
the chandelier. It helps others if it
does not help you.
Boston's Fine Example.
Last Christmas in Boston the mayor
requested everyone in the city to leave
their window shades up on Christmas'
eve to help light the city. Such a,
(cheerful glow as it gave to 01(1 Ben
coni street amnd Comamonwealth avenue!
Downs in the Public gardlens thet city
wasI enjoying its municipal Chsristmias
tree, a stately fIr, hedcked with myri
ad( coloredl electric bulbs, while tihe
band~ layed old familiar carols that
ve(eredl into popular street songs be
fore the crowdl scattered. The scene
was significant of Christmas now be- j
lng a cosmopolitan festival holding
thme heart of Puritan New England,
whose holy of holies has heretofore
been Trhianksgiving. This is right, and
ais it should be, since ours is a land
of religious liberty and Christmas is
the season of "pea~ce and good wvillj
to sall mankind."
