NOTE Make flierks anil all other remit-
It I- well that in this workaday
world ore day in the year is left fot
most of us on which to east away dull
care and enjoy to the full the pleas
ures of Christmas time. Amid a.I the
world’s peoples we have, in the after
math of the World’s great tragedy hut
shortly closed, the strongest urge to
thank the Hirer of All Hood for the
marked blessings bestowed upon us.
True, in the reaction from the
world’s great struggle, in common
with the victors and the vanquished,
we have given rein to the spirit that
prompts men to live for the day with
little heed of the morrow. That spirit
has ever marked the world’s great
crises; but it runs it- course, n, it
soon will in this one, and, when it
does, we will realize that Cod has
been good to us beyond measure.
Then may we resolve to face the fu
ture with its duties and its problems,
with ear:n st purpose in perform and
best effort to solve them
In contrast with mir waste for our
selves in the past two years, stands
our marked bounty to our own and
the world’s afflicted, showing that the
spii ii of brotherhood abides with us
and warrants the hope :hat the time |
will come ere long I
"When ;l ■ common -eiis.. of most.
Shall hold the fretful realm in awe
And the kindly earth hall slumber
lapt in universal law.”

There is no way of finding out to
what ekisses these generous spenders
be.onged. Though perhaps the ma
jority belonged to those rich in prop
erty op ra h in high wages, we should
discover, if it were possible to analyze
til.- returns, lha i early all classes
were represented in the luxury lax, to
some extent.

The, have ii economize anil econo

would be surprised if they kept a
strict account for a single month of
luxury expenditures, or expenditures

tance by ma"y, but n is actually at

The High Cost of Living is largely
an tiler ",'ime for the high cost of
loafing and the high cost of squander
ing. Industrious and frugal people
are ne ■ '.-arily affected by the indo
lei i i- and the prodigality of the loaf
ers and the lavi-h -ptiedi re The for
mer reduce production and the latter
help to keep up the high scale of
prices, by encouraging exorbitant
charges. If the whole producing pub
.o-operated in producing things,
and the whole consuming public in
sane economy, the price problem
would not long remain to vex us.
We have been calling on the Gov
ernment to soli'ii this problem, when
it has been evident all along that its
real solution mainly depends on the
people themselves. Another disap
pointment awaits us if we expect to
cure the trouble by the alluring prse
criptions of political platforms. In
economic diseases wise political doc
tors may help nature to help herself,
but there is mi specific which can lake
