Where nnd When and What They
Ab to the origin of the Christmas
tree there is a diversity of opinion,
but history tenches us that the first
Christmas tree in America was dec
orated and lighted up In New Am
sterdam when Manhattan Island
was a colony of the Dutch. It is re
corded that on tho first Christmas
passed by the Dutch colonists on
tills side the Atlantic they cut down
a codar, took it into the church,
and, with such means as were at
hand, decorated and lighted It,
hanging upon its branches presents
from the governor and his lady to
every member of the colony. The
tree was never brought into general
custom, however, until the begin
ning of the present century. Since
then the custom has grown and
spread until now the institution is
inseparable from the season.
In Columbia but few of the
churches seldom let the happy
Christmastide pass without having
a Christmas tree, or something simi
lar, for the enjoyment of the chil
dren, not to say for the pleasure of
the older ones, who remember what
joy in years gone by the heavily
adened and brilliantly lighted trees
brought to their hearts. This year
nearly every church in Columbia
will in some manner celebrate the
ho v season.
The Sunday-school of the First
Presbyterian church will have two
large Christmas trees, with exer
cises appropriate to the occasion, on
the evening or Dec. 2L There is a
surprise in store for the little ones
who attend here, as old Santa has
positively refused to tell anyone
what he is going to do. Of course,
however, it will be something real
nice and everybody will be pleased.
The entertainment at the South
Columbia Methodist Church, which
will take place on the night of Dec.
24, promises to eclipse all former ef
forts of this Sunday-school in this
line. There will be an "Enchanted
Catle," with an excellent program
of songs, recitations etc., and those
who attend will be highly enter
tained. The First Methodist Church Sunday-school
will have a Christmas
tree Friday evening, but tho hour
has not yet been fixed. There will
be an interesting programme of
Christmas carols, etc., and each
child of the school will receive a
A Christinas tree, bountifully
ladened with good things, will be

The Sunday-school of the First
Baptist church will Inve a Christ
mas tree on Christmas eve, but
what will be done, outside of the
present giving, is being kept a secret
by those who have the entertain
ment in charge.
The Christmas Stars will twinkle
in all their brilliancy at the First
Cumberland Presbyterian church on

tainment will be characterized by
decorations of numerous golden and
silver stars, both large and small In
size, and there will be a nice pro

There will be a Christmas tree at
the Christian church on Friday
evening about 7:'!0 o'clock. There
will be lots and lots of nice presents
and an excellent programme.
The Sunday-school of the South
Main Street C. P. Church is prepar
ing to have something nice for the
children's enjoyment, but the
nature of the entertainment has not
yet been decided upon.
Saturday, Christinas day, at 7 p.
m., will be the time for the Christ
mas tree at the Advent Chapel, and
a nice treat is in store for the chil
dren of this Sunday-school.
The managers of the Industrial
School will have a Christmas tree
in the room over the Maury
National Bank Christmas eve at 1 p
