CHRISTMAS.
Christmas means bri us a season of
rejoieing. It has come down \<< u>
through the ages, sinco Christ was born
in the littte city of Bcthlehem and
the angels sang around His inanger
"Peaoa oa earth good will to mar,'
we bave caueht tbe cristlike spirit,
and join in one grand barmonious
strain, and sing the sweet anthem oer
and oer again ?.mtil our bearta are
fllled with joy aud gladness. To those
wbo are bonntifully supplied with this
worlds goods, this is a scason of glad?
ness, but in the homea where poverty
lurks, wbat flnd we there.?.sorrow and
distrcss. What would appeal more to
a gentle, sympatlietic beart than a
mother in a home of poverty now.
Pieture ber with her little one. cling
ing tO her skirts, prattling in their in
noc nt cbiltliab hehion about Banla
Claus, ui.,) what he wiU bring them.
she thudder- at every word for ihi
koowa only too well tbere will Ix- ii<
visit from Santa Claua in lb'( ir home.
Baa li* r dietreaa vben ahe view tbe
little BtOCkloga hung iii ? row, w'w n
she watches tlie little eager heat
ing in, only to turn away with a
of disappoiiitmeiit and wandcr an I
an inquiring look at inother. aa if tbcv
expect her tn explaiu. There are just
such hotnaa in our inidst loday and
God grant the good inolhers may find
them. This is a BHM0P of giving and
may every good citizen iu our dear
old town, feel it his or her duty lo
give tlieir mite to niitigate the
suffering, and advance tbe ha;>
pimss ofthe less fortuuate, for whal
are wc that we ifa Klld pro.?pcr more
than they, and iu givint. we increase our
own bappiness ttnfold. As 1 writ',
- ol my chiMhood come before
my vision. I look back o\er the vista
of years and recall my home life.
Such a aweet, simple life it was
away from tlie ipad ru-di, and
wild tumiilt of the eity's din
and roar, care free aud uutrammeled
by the laws of society, with my dear
mother aud father, sisters and brother.,
we lived a quiet peaceful life in thedear
old home. Many years have passed
and most of them arealeep in tho sileut
city, yet tonight they seem strangely
near to me; it seems they have come
from the sijenco and I can beaf their
voiec8 and scc their smiling faces get
tintr ready for Christmas. What great
preparations were made in that dear old
home Mother was busy for weeks
abead ol time. and when tbe day
dawned at last tbe pantry fairly groan
nl with good things too numerous to
mention. Aml mothers mincc meat
pie, My! but it was good, 1 have never
since tasted any to cqual it. Ever
green was twincd in profusion about
the walls interspersed with clusters of
brigbt hollv, then tbe Christmas tree
in tho old fasioncd parlor (for mother
would always havoa Christmas tree)
fairly bent with its beautiful trimmiugs.
Those who had married and made
homes for tbemselves were invited back
to the home nest, and father and
mothor looked on with smiling faccs,
while the children and giandchildren
mad? the old walls ring with their
laughter and BOOg. Christmas means
so much to the little innocent child, to
the maid, to the youth, but to those
who have almost reached the last mile
stone it means notbing. Itawakenssad
memories, and paints vivid pictures of
vanislied days. The empty rradlc, the
broken toy, the vacant chair by the
lireside, the lonely snow covered grave,
are all su^gestive ol brighterdays where
ibadowa now oreep iu. They are only
waiting for the sound of the boatman's
voice, listening for the gratiDg of tho
boat upon the Banda, waiting for tbe
invitation to Kep in and be conveyed
- tbe sileut stream, to the jjreat
? I, to tbe celestial city from
wbither no weary traveler ever returns.
I wish all a happy Christmas and when
the day is ended and the curtain ia
drawn may we have that peace of mind
that the world cannot give nor take
away. ^^^^^ _
SHOT AT DAUC.HTER'K **UITOR.
Thomas Berry, a farmer, of Mar
rio'tsville. Md., wbo was arrested
Thursday on a charge of assaulting,
with intent to kill David Jenkins, by
shewting at him on Wednesday night,
had a liearing yesterday and was held
for tbe action of tlie grand jury.
tbatJenkins had been
calling to see Derry'a daughter and had
beea niuVai ttanea to stay away
from tbe house. On Wednesday night
about 11 o'eloek Berry heard a noise
at on-- of the windows of his house and
getting out of bed, as all the members
of his family had letired for tbo night,
he want down stairs to make an invea
tigation and as he oponed the door,
with his gun in his hand. saw a man
run. upon whom he lired. The man
was Jenkins.
Several shots hit Jenkius, who said
tbat if he had not ducked behind an
oak tree hc would have been killed, aa
tho weapon was an old-time war mua
ket, which is good for long shots.
This makes the second time there
been trouble over Jenkioa calling
baa
on Berry'a daughter. About one year
ago, in an altercation, Jenkina abot
Berry in the mouth with a pistol,
wouoding him very badly. tearing out
several teeth, Jenkina claiming that it
was done in aelf-defense.
I.EMOCRATIL POUSIBILITIES.
Disclaiming for a aeoond time any
ntention of himself bccoming a preai
dential candidate iu 1012, William J.
Bryan, in the i*8tie of bia Commoner
yeaterday, suggests 4 do inocratic poaai
bilities?.Tosopli W. Folk, Mayor
Gaynor, of New York; Oor. Harmon,
of Ohio, an;l Gov.-eleet Wilson of New
Jersey. in the order named. Ho makes
no choice among the four, butpublis-ies
their records as follows:
"Folk was an active supporter of
Bryan and Sewell in 18%, and has
suppor'ei tho democratic national
tieket io all the campaigns since.
Mayor Gaynor, in 1806, was one
of the few prominent dcmocrata in the
east who stood up for the party creod
and ticket, and he has been faitbful
ever since.
"Got. Harmon, then a member of
Mr. Cleveland'? cabinet, did not vote in
18%, but in l'JOO piesided at Mr
Bryan's meeting at Cincinnati."
While hy intiniation classing Wood
row Wilson as a lioltcr in 1896, Bryan
praiseshim for his attitude in the con?
test for the Xew Jersey aenatorahip.

AwfoJ Suffering That CarM
Finally Relieved
PIzaiTo, Va?"I suffered for several
years," writes Mrs. Dorma A. Smith,
f'with that awful backache and the bear?
ing down sensations, so fully deacribed
in your book.
"I tried doctors and other medicines
and found little relief, until 1 was induced
to try Wme of Cardui. when 1 found in?
stant relief and today 1 can heartily
recommend Cardui to all suffering womea
and think there is no other as good."
In some instances, Cardui gives instant
relief; in others, it may take a little time.
But in all eases of female trouble Cardui
can be depended on to be of benefit, as
it is a specific remedy for women and
acts in a curative way on the womanly
organs.
As a general tonic for women, to build
up your strength, improve your appe
tite, bring back rosy cheeks and make
you look and feel young and happy,
nothing you can find will do so much for
vou as Cardui.
Your druggist has it.
