CHRISTMAS. h Tomorrow is Christmas day?a day set apart by Christian 1 peoples throughout the world for doing homage to the Prince of Peace. 1 "Hail to the King of Bethlehem, Who weareth in his diadem The' yellow Crocus for the gem Of his authority." There is no gainsaying that the influence of the life of the j lowly Nazarene has been a mighty uplift for the cause of hu- s manity and that it has done much for the. preservation of peace. :I Whatever governments are doing or, may do, deep down in their j hearts the people of all countries are today praying fervently t for the coming of the spirit of peace. "We kind 'o thought Christ went agin ? War an' pillage." The church was, however, unable to prevent the outbreak "of hostilities in Christian Europe; was even unable to obtain a .1 Christmas truce among the warring nations. But this does not prove that the influence of Christ has lost its' efficiency. The m'Odern conception of Christmas is that it is a season s of giving?giving to create happiness. Even before a child can c lisp its prayers or understand the story of the Wise Men who 1 came with their' gifts to the Babe of Bethlehem, it is the object J or. which to bestow gifts. ) The giving of Christmas gifts has become an universal habit. 1 It broadens the sympathies and knits closer the bonds Qf human i brotherhood. The impulse to share one's pleasure with others 1 oversteps all boundaries. And, today mnay families in America \ have practiced self-denial among their immediate circles that i they may carry joy and comfort to the distressed of foreign 1 lands. i FENCING IN THE HEMISPHERE. A hundred years ago, when the idea involved in the Monroe Doctrine were beginning to take shape, Thomas- Jefferson sug gested that Europe would be warned to fight "it3 everlasting wars" on its own side of theocean. He proposed to draw a neu trality line nojth and south through the middle of the Atlantic, making the American half of it inviolable during foreign wars. Failure to follow that suggestion has often involved the United States and other American republics in difficulties. During the present European war there has been widespread interference with our commerce and'grievous loss to South American states because of ftie presence of British and German warships, looking for trouble, near seaports and along trade routes. Now at the conference of twenty American nations in Wash ington, the minister from Peru has revived Jefferson's old sug gestion. In solemn diplomatic phrase, he declares that "his gov ernment believes the time has come for joint action of all the American republics to guarantee the inviolability of their com mercial routes from the hostile activities of the belligerent navies." He proposes to fence in and neutralize "the maritime area belong ing to the two continents" by lines cqui-disfcant from them and other continents, on both the Atlantic and Pacific sides. That i; would give plenty of room for Pan-American commerce. ii The historic Monroe Doctrine means simply "no more foreign colonies in this hemisphere." If enlarged according to the Jef fersonian and Peruvian plan, the Monroe Doctrine would mean "no more foreign colonies or foreign wars in this hemisphere." h And from being purely a "Yankee policy," always a cause for un easiness to our Latin neighbors, the Monroe Doctrine would be " raised to the dignity of an international policy supported by the whole Wesferh world.?(Tacoma Tribune). b CARNEGIE'S SENTIMENTS. CB SI Andrew Carnegie declared that all blame for the war may be laid entirely on the military cate surrounding: the German * emperor. He said: "You must blame the circle of military men about him, whose J profesd&m it is to kill, kill, kill. There are no men of letters, no jhhilosopheYs, no inventors, at the court of Berlin. There are, y and have been, only men whose palms have itched with the feel ^ of their sword hilts. "If I were God, I should suspect there vrn no religion'in men "v>hb" wottld agree to a truce over Christmas, only to start afresh at the end of that season to butcher each other in the abhorent orgy of murder."?(Boston News Bureau). w 01 Fiction as Victor Hugo fancied it became grim fact in the ' sale of her haid by a Chicago shop girl to pay her room rent. If that kind Of sacrifice is painful in the pages of a romance dealing with outgrown conditions of female labor it is surely doubly so under present conditions of life in prosperous America. oi ' K< ot British war censors still conceal the loss of the Audaciuos, la ~ though the fact is well enough known to both the English and ti! German public. The ostrich' which hides its head in the sand has a curious human counterpart in the officials responsible for. this policy of attempting to suppress the unsuppressible. "Never .get angry," says Prof. Frederick Starr of the TJni- ty versity of Chicago when.asked for some hint of the way to that longevity he proposes to extend to one hundred and twenty years. This may be a good rule for individuals. A people which ' would"endure must be roused occasionally to just wrath. ca ? ? ? - . 1 5 A*.
