The Christmas tide is upon us again.
once more we celebrate the anniversary
of the birth of the Son of Man, who is
the Son of God. That event occurred
nearly two thousand years ago. The
message then, chanted by angel voices,
was "Peace on earth, good will to men."
That is the message which each recur
ring anniversary of this joyous event
brings to a sin-stricken world.
"Peace on earth." In the ages
through which' it has descended, of
times ithas grown faint, and men have
s5lmeties doubted if the prophecy
which it contained would ever be ful
ffied. The world has been filled with
wars, with civil dissensions, and with
petty strifes. The tread of martial
legions and the throb of human pas
sios have shaken the earth to its very
foaiands, and hatred has filled the
hearts of men. But at the time of the
-Saviour's birth, there was an universal
peace. And in the glory of the eternal
morn which shall greet his second com
ing, the prophecy will have been ful
= ~ The.world has ever struggled towards
th'light. At times it has been filled
with .a deep gloom, but the march of
humanity, measured by the centuries,
has been one of progress. Succeeding
civilizations have gradually and surely
gasped the fact that wars should not
be fought tq.satiate a human passion,
but in order that wrongs may be righted
and that peace may finally prevail.
True, thereare wars of conquest waged
today; principle is sacrificed upon the
altar of gold, and human hearts are
seared with ignoble passions. But it is
tie also that the influence of the Chris
tin Curch is greater than at any time
in zmorded history, and men predict
with confidence what heretofore has
tested their faith to believe, that its in
flumioe wil at no very distant day be
paramount in human affairs.
The message contains the true Christ
t-as spirit. "Good will to men." The
birth of the Saviour was a - manifesta
tion of God's infinite love. That man
might be saved he gave his only begot
ten:Son. The life of the Saviour was a
manifestation of God's will concerning
pan. To good-hat is the highest
purpose of human life. To steady a
fal@eing step in the pathway of life, to
bring eheer to a heart that is bowed
- down 'with sorrow, to uplift a human
soul that bears hyviest the weight of
woe--thatis.the part of those who have
some time6oges into.every life, and
these is wi.L- relbenefienat disenstin
of Provuleiae, than that:under which,
when we wipe'away another's tears,
-our own cease to fall. In no fitter way
can Christmes be celebrated than by
giving-givirg, and expecting nothing
in return; Tht is "goo4 will" exem
plifled by worksiin a lesser degree the
"good will" whuich the Saviour dis
played. -His .birth itself was a gift,
agift than which there has been nor
- - can there he any greater. Give to the
S poor and needy. Seek to bring joy to
Stheewho know it not. Give for the
pleasure of giving, and for the good the
gifts may do. Make the children happy.
The SavlQar' -loved the little children.
STeach the the meaning of Christmas
in order that they may enjoy the true
pleasure which it brings. For after all,
Christmas is the festival of the little
children and the poor. On this day
many, many years ago,|Christwas a babe
in Bethlehem's manger, and his walk
in life was among the poor. Let the
true Christmas spirit, "good will to
men," prevail. The man who has this
spirit can hear the song of the angels
as clearly as the shepherds heard it on
Bethlehem's plains that first Christmas
-morn. When every human heart can
hear the glad refrain, then will the
* kingdom-of the "Prince of Peace" have
here been established.
We find the following in the Green
vile News taken from the New York
Evening Post on the mill situation inI
the South. The News says the writer,;
a Mr. Taylor, is a prominent citizen.
Mr. Taylor, says: "As to children un
der twelve years old working in the
mills, there are probably a few in nearly
every mill in this state. The actual
-figures show an insignificant and de
creasing per centage of the total num
number of operatives. They are not
desirable help, and a majority of mill
presidents would be glad to have them
shut out of the mills by law." If that
be true why is it that all the mill presi
, dents as soon" asa bill is proposed to
shut them out by law rush to Columbia
and appear before committees and
lobby .against the passage of such a
law. We have conitended all the while
that it was better for the mills as well
as for the children to prohibit child la
bor and the more we think of it the
stronger iwe become in favor of legisla
tion. We have been unable to under
stand why the mill presidents all fight
so bitterly and so strongly any legisla
tion along this line when they will all
tell you that they do not care for child
labor as it is not profitable. The mill
owners had better consent to some wise
measure on the subject and let it pass
the next legislature without opposition.
"A Chirstmas Poem" published in
this issue of The Herald and News is
from the pen of Mr. Jno. A. Chapman,
of this city, and is from a book of his
poms ih as not yet beennpublished.
The new city government will
have some knotty problems to tackla;
the best way is to meet them
squarely. The streets are in bad condi
tion, left so by the work on the sewers.
With the gravel as convenient as we
have it there should be a lot of road
building so as to get rid of some of the
mud which we now have. The con
tractor should not have been permitted
to' leave the streets in the condition
which he did.
"The newspapers and the public
schools are the universities of the peo
This is very true. But for the news
papers and the public schools the great
mass of the people would have little
opportunity to be educated. The news
papers of today are the great educa
tors. They go to the masses and every
body reads a riewspaper of some kind.
We believe the newspaper of today
wields more influence than the newspa
pers of earlier days because more peo
ple read. The rich and the poor and
all classes and conditions of peopk
read the newspapers.
This issue of The Herald and News,
while it bears date of Friday, is printed
on Wednesday morning. As announcei
in our last issue this is done in order to
avoid work on Christmas. To one and
all we wish a merry Christmas.
"The Wrong Shall Fall, The Right Pre
vail"-Rev. Mr. Seabrook's Ser
mon Sunday.
At the Church of the Redeemer or
Sunday morning Rev. W. L. Seabrook,
pastor, took for his text Luke 2:14,
"And on earth peace."
Mr. Seabrook said in part that the
coming of Jesus was to bring to the
earth a fourfold peace: peace betweer
man and God; peace between man and
the powers of darkness in that they
have no longer power to hurt and need
not be feared; peace between man and
his own conscience; peace between mar
and man.
When Jesus came, the Prince oi
Peace, there was universal peace among
the nations; the doors of the temple o1
Janus were closed. But peace contin
ued only a little while. Within seventy
years occurred one of the most terrible
wars that has ever disfigured the red
pages of history, the holy city was de
stroyed and its glorious temple given t<
the flames and its people to the sword
and the cross. Since that time humar
history seems like one long cynica
aatire on the angels' song. Strife and
contention fill the world with tumult,
How-.r4incile the angels' message witi
the continuance of wars! Was- thE
coming of the Prince of Peace a fail
ure? Christi camie to. remake this olc
world of ours, and the method that he
employs with the individual is the worki
method., It goes without saying thai
man cannot have peace with the pow
era of evil round him,- cannot have
peace of consciene without first hav
ing peace with God. .God does not say
to any man with Arbitrary fiat, "Lel
there be peace." Before a man can be
at peace with God, he must accepi
Christ the Prince of Peace as Saviour,
"Peace by the blood of His cross,'
Christ as ruler; his law of love as thE
motive and rule of life's action. But
man is still in.an imperfect world. ThE
strife between good and evil still rages
in his heart. But if he has truly ac
cepted Christ, the good is more and
more gaining the victory over evil--he
is growing better, day by day. The
method with the world is the same.
In the world between man and man
there still is strife. But as in the in
Iividual there is development. The
battle is raging but the outcome is not
uncertain. More and more the message
of peace is being heard among men.
Once war was war for war's sake. Once
no quarter was given to man, woman
or child, all were slain or enslaved.
And so it would have been forever were
it not for the fact that more and more
hmanity is being molded by the prin
iples of the Gospel. Wherever the
power of Christ is felt, no longer is
war the ruling passion. Today war is
the exception and not the rule. Louder
and louder grow the demands for peace
ful arbitration. No nation dares nor
wishes to go to war, without such rea
son alleged as will justify it in the eyes
of the world, that is opposed to war.
Before the coming of the Prince of
Peace there was no mercy for the van
quished. Now on the fdd of battle
every wounded enemy becomes a broth
er, whose wounds made by the hand of
war are to be healed by the hand of
love, while over every battle camp
floats the banner of mercy, and on
every firing line gentle women and
skilled surgeons, angels of mercy, min
ister alike to friend and foeman.
With the promise of the Christ in
mind, with the evidence of history that
the angels' song of peace is more and
more finding echo in human hearts no
man doubts that the triumph of peace
will come, eyen though there are some
facts that seem to mock the song. We
may bow the head in sorrow that the
ideal seems far from p resent realiza
tion, in sympathy with Longfellow as
e sings:
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet, the words repeat
f peace on earth, good will to men.
And in despair I bowed my head;
There is no peace on earth I said,
For hate is strong and mocks the song
f peace on earth, good will to men.
But even while despairing, the poet
eard another voice which came to fill
is heart with hope and gladness
hen pealed the bells more loud and
