Holiday Spirit Dominant
In Services at Churches Week Before New Year Washington churches will prolong the spirit of Christmas to morrow and begin preparations for the new year.

Give us bread: for why should we die in thy pres ence? for the money faileth. 1$ And Joseph said, Give your [cattle; and I will give you for your [cattle, if money fail. 17 And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses; and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year. 18 When that year was ended, they came unto him, We will not hide It from my lord, how that our money la spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not aught left In the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands: 19 Wherefore shall we die be fore thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be serv ants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die. that the land be not desolate. 20 And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh: for th* Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's. 21 And as for the people, he re moved them to cities from one of the borders of Egypt even to tha other end thereof. 22 Only the land of the priests bought he not: for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pha raoh gave them: rwherefore they sold not their lands. 3S Then Joseph said unto the people.
