THUECDAY EVENING. D^C. 23," 1897.
CHBISTMA8. Caristos? lias a many-sided significance. To the Christian it is a season for devout and uplifting thoughts; to the children it meai s a season of good things and of presents of every description: to the vice-ridden man, and too often to many others, it signifies a season for a deeper plunge into debauchciy and dissipation. December is the mo3t fitting month in the year for such a day. The other months ail have their beauties, but in this one. as a ra!e. the bleak and cold days of winter, like tl.e woes and sorrows of life, are banished by th; bright joy of Christmastido. D.s-p,-ointtnenr, blighted ambition, soar temper and such like spirits will find no placa on Christmas, f t the season demands nothing but smiles and happy laughter. The poor, benighted bachelor, howev r. realizing for the first time how completely alone he is, curses tne fo.ly that ma.'o him single, and back to his boyhood days his wandering thoughts recall the great blfcxiig flro, the mother's glowing face and the chil !? ren's merry shouts Saturday is the happy day, thrush, it mu.'t be admitted, Christmas is fast losing m-.ny c; its mo3t dear aul cherished customs. "111? day is not forgot en, bat its significance ir. It is buried beneath a panoply of modem usages, and, like so many other days, is be c>mingaday for a litt.o mure ext:ava_au e in dre.-sing and a gnat deal more in eating and drinking.
