At the close of this, the most
successful year in the history of
The Journal, we desire to thank.
most heartily, our friends and
patrons for their kindly help and
counsel and to wish them a Mer?
ry Christmas and a Happy and
Prosperous New Year Especial?
ly do we desire to thank our cor?
respondents for their gteat assis?

We are well aware that a news?
paper can only attain real success
through the patronage of the pub?
lic, freely given, and are corres
ppndingly grateful for favors re
, ceived. We believe too, that
earnest, conscientious service will
in time, earn good will and take
it as a happy augury that each
year o? ousiness increases.
We ..ie proud of The Journal
and believe that its general and
local news features taken as a
whole, will comp. *? favorably
with any local pape our ac?
quaintance. For the f- nre we
pledge our best effort;? t. ts im?
provement and our talents, such
?is we possess, to the service of
The blessedness of giving is
more perfectly demonstrated at
Christmas than at any other lime.
It is a beautiful sentiment that
induces one to remember ones
friends in the glad season and yet
we think it is often carried too
far. That if, instead of giving
friends, we mean of course our
grownup friends, and not the

presents to buying necessities of
life for some poor family a gteat

Then indeed it would be "more
blessed to give than to receive "
The writer has noticed with
regret a n apparently growing
tend acv on the part of certain
"rRsys and yo?.ng men to misbe?
have in church especially at night
services. It may be done through
thoughtlessness but whatever
may be its cause it should be
stopped and at once, for the ben?
efit of the offenders as well as
the congregations they disturb.
We would advise that the official
members 0? the various churches
take steps to curb this tendency
to hilarity in places of worship.
Thebs will be no issue tf The
Journal next (Xnr.as) week, but
we trast that our friend*, will send
