It's yours for the taking In fact, you will have missed the purpose, the beauty, and the joy of Christmas, unless you DO take it. "For God so loved the world that HE GAVE His only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have ever lasting life." Christmas is the anniversary of God's greatest gift to man. To a world that was lost in sin God gave His own Son. And He gave Him for a definite purpose. ''This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sin , ners." If this Christmas finds you a penitent sinner who rejoices over the unspeakable gift of full and free salvation which came to all men through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of the Son of God— then yours is going to be a really happy Christmas. We invite you. one and all, to come and worship God's great Gift to man with us on Christmas night and every Sunday thereafter. We know you will be blessed immeas urably for time and eternity by such worship.—ST JOHN LUTH CHURCH fPd. Adv.) ERAN , White. Stryker: Norma Mec, Teddy 1 Mee, and Hermit Johnson.

BRAKES . . . j brakes are called upon to p er f orm two duities, one of which j s t0 bring the car to rest or to decre ase its speed, and the other to hold the ear in its place while unattended. These two functions are ordinarily performed by two separate braking systems, the for mer function by a foot pedal oper ated system, called the "service brake." and the other by a hand operated brake, called the "park ing" or "emergency" brake. The modern car moves so fast that the ( demands for rapid stopping ability have forced every American make of motor car to have a separate brake for each of the four wheels. The intelligent use of brakes is essential to good motoring and where\4er possible the car should be slowed down by the compression of the engine instead of the brake, Brakes should never be used on hard or slippery surfaces because the wheels may lock and the car be thrown completely out of con th.h m ascending and descending a hill the same gear should be used that the motor can function , smoothly. Have your brakes SO n. checked regularly, there is no bet ter safety insurance. SERVIC7. L. J. Brown, Prop. CLACK'S (pd. adv.) !MKS.
