Wednesday was "Donation Day" in Cleveland, and young and old responded liberally to the call to remember the people of that big city who were in distress for lack of food or clothing. As a result, over twenty thousand dollars was raised. Such a movement as that started and carried out in Cleveland is significant. As a rule, the big cities are cold and the people are more or less selfish. They seldom launch a general big phil anthropic movement in which the people in every walk of life participate, but this was done in Cleveland. Millionaires, school children, working men, manufacturers and clerks, all assisted in the laudable movement. Such a spirit of co-operation works wonders.. It is not merely the raising of money, but it is the general response from the people of all walks of life that is impressive. It brings them to gether into a closer relationship. It breaks down the barriers of distrust and envy. It emphasizes the spirit that comes from the heart, unselfish and generous. There is a great deal of tact required in assisting the less for-: tunate ones. Charity is cold unless it comes with sympathy and friendliness. A man or woman resents assistance when it is . given mechanically and coldly. In Medina County the Humane Society is now entering upon its winter work and it is looking forward confidently to the generous and sympathetic support of the people. One of the reasons for the success of the work of the Medina County Humane Society is that there has been a tactful, sympathetic policy carried out in relieving distress among its less-fortunate people. ' That is one of the reasons why it has been so successful and why it has gained the confidence of the people. In the days that precede the Christmas season the purse strings should be loosened and the heart beat in sym pathy with the worthy movements to have the spirit of peace on earth good will towards men in the heart of every person. Probably the most perfect anomaly ever known is presented in the person of General Villa. A born bandit and, as generally believed, a cutthroat, nevertheless he has exhibited wisdom and . humanity in no small degree at times when most men of his type would have plundered and killed, and above all he has shown but little if any overstrained ambition for personal political pre ferment. The arrival of his troops in eMxico City as well as those of Gen. Zapata, the fore part'of this week, was followed by comparative calm, after one of the most trying weeks , in the city's history. Gen. Villa has given every guarantee that life and property will be safeguarded and thus far his promises have been carried out. Bandit or not, this rugged old mountain chieftan has been showing qualities of leadership and statesman ship that are well calculated to place him with respect to con ditions in Mexico in a very favorable position in the eyes of other countries. As the Christmas season approaches, how marvelous is the influence by which the spirit of the time moves the hearts of men lo joyful and generous impulses. It seems as if at this era of the year an unseen angel touches the invisible spring of an unused door in normal human nature and floods them with gladness and sunshine. What a world of generous endeavour and what a summertime of happiness is awhirl around us. Those whom Providence has prospered are busy with their loving devices to make home happy ; to crown the waning year with goodness ; to reward fidelity, patience and love; to reap the joys that flock into the Christmas season like homing doves from afar circling light. Let us appreciate Christmas. An appreciative Christ mas will rule the baseness, rudness, roughness but of any life. Coloned Roosevelt declared in several speeches that he would never go back to the Republican party. The November election result makes it equally clear that there will be no olive branches extended from the other end of the line. MUSICAL NOTES The vesper service given by the Congregational choir and organist, assisted by M'ss Sipher, violinist; Miss Olive Leister, pianist and alto; Mr. John Waltz, bass of Cleveland and Mrs. Raymond Long, soprano and director, was largely attended and the well-rendered numbers of the entire program were greatly appreciated. Dr. Fritsch gave a very helpful ren dition of Longfellow's "Legend Beauti ful." On the Home Week program at the Congregational church, we find these musical numbers which were greatly appreciated by those attending the meetings.

In til the pomp and splendor of an . army on parade, And through the awful darkness that the smoke of battle's made; In the halls where jewels glitter and where shoutin' men debate;. In the palaces where rulers deal out honors to the great, There i3 not a single person who'd b doin' business now ( Or have medals if it wasn't for the man behind the plow. We're a buildin' mighty cities and we re galmn' lofty heights. We're a-winnin' lots' of glory and we're settin' things to rights; We're a-showin' all creation how the world's affairs should run; Future menll gaze in wonder at the tilings that we have done, And they'll overlook the feller, just , ' , the same as they do now, 'i Who's the whole concern's foundation, that's the man behind the plow, , r-S.
