TUESDAY, DEC. 22, 1914. OFFICIAL CITYANO COUNTY PAPER. Published weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausau as second class mattei. Sound Neutrality. President Wilson disapproval of tha building of submarines for the European belligerents by Americans seems sound international law and sound neutrality. If it was contrary to neutrality for England to permit the building of the Alabama in inr ports and its depar ture to prey on the commerce of this country during the civ’! war, the same principle would seem to a pp’.y to sub marines. Nor would this principle be affected, apparently, by the device of building the various parts of the submarine and shipping them to Canada to be put together. That would be an evasion and not a compliance with the spirit of the law. The layman naturally asks why it should not be as contrary to neutrality to permit the manufacture and ship ment of arras to belligerents as the constrction and departure of a warship or other armed expedition. It might, if the entire question were to be examined and settled de novo. But it isn’t because interna tional rules on such subjects have al ready grown up and these control, They establish a plain distinction be tween the two proceedings We can sell the belligerents ah the arms and other forms of contraband we want to, with the risk of seizure by belligerents on the other side. W e can't permit armed expeditions or armed si ips to be equipped or leave our shores under any circumstances. Some dav the distinction may be done away with. Then our duty will be different. Today the distinction exists, is recognized everywhere, and there is no ground for complaint if we observe it.--Chiago Harald. The interstate commerce commis sion on Friday granted the applica tions of eastern railroads for a tive per cent increase in freight rates, except in certain districts and upon certain commodities specified in the ruling. Two commissioners dissented in the opinion. The recommendation of the rate body rejects the plea for advances on rail and lake, rail, lake, and lake and rail shipments and has under consider ation ad vances in the rate for bitumin ous coal 1 coke, anthracite anc iron ore which are held subject to the unex pired orders of the commission! The commission held for further consideration the rates on cement, brick, tile, clay and plaster, and no ad vances were admitted on these. The application for a rehearing on the freight rate case was made by the roads on Sept. 15 on the grounds that the European war and other events had changed conditions since the pre vious decisions of the interstate com merce commission.

Twelve Reasons Why THE Farmers’ Review is The Practical Paper FOR The Business Farmer Christmas Ideas. Christmas will be worthily hept by us in proportion as our hearts glow with ChristUhe feelings, estrangements should melt in the warmth of Christmas gratitude to 6od. Let it be a 6weet, forgiving time—a time for the doing of blessed charities. Because Chrlstmao stands for the child, as the father of the man, and for the cradle, as the 'me poirt where futurity is vulnerable, it will yet usher in the golden age. Cos produce an Ideal world we need only one thing-a Christmas that lasts all the year. If Christ had never been born thci-e would have been no Christmas, and where now is holy light would abide a great shadow, and where now Is sweet and sacred Joy would be sadneso and tears. If Christ had never been born the world would have bereft itself of the love and the light of God. Che birth of "Jesus means the establishment of the reign o'r Justice and con science, and you and I cannot realize the benefits of this divine season until we have become llhe little children In humility and gentleness and received the will and the love of God as they have been made hnown to us In the piaster's gospel.

One family who were over the stock ing hanging age decided last Christmas that they could not have a tree. The children were disappointed and feared • stupid day. An ingenious sister solved the prob lem of gift giving in a somewhat novel way. She askec all the members of the family to wrap their gifts for each other into neat packages, direct them plainly and leave them in the library on Christmas eve. No one was told what was to be done ■with the packages, and each member was sfworn to secrecy, so that she did not know that the others’ presents were to go irto the library also. The girl divided them Into groups, having one gift for each member of the family included in a given lot. The separate collections were then taken Old Folks and Santa Claus. “An’ little folks can’t find him, ’Cause they’re always fast asleep." Old folks must see Sanly Claus when stockin’s are to fill, For they keep the chimney corner, an* they’re always dreamy still But Santy Claus don’t mind ’em If even a watch they keep, An’ little folks can’t find him, ’Cause they’re always fast asleep. I know the old folks see him an’ like him mighty well, An’ why he doesn’t mind ’em is—he knows they’ll never telL . But little folks dream of him W’en bundled in a heap, An’ they hear him cornin’, cornin’, Down the chimney in their sleep. —Frank L. Stanton in Atlanta Constitution A HISTORIC CHRISTMAS.

Two days later, early on Christmas morniug. the pope celebrated mass in the great ba silica of St. Peter's, a eburch not at all like the huge renaissance structure reared by Bramaate anti Michelangelo. The edilioe wns crowded to the doors, for all Rome docked in those days to see the wonderful Frank, who, like Mohammed, spread his gospel by the sword.

On Christmas day a small boy of the family dressed in the costume of a Christmas herald of Elizabethan days went through the house every hour during the day blowing a trumpet and proclaiming that a Christmas hunt would be held in a certain room. The family had a merry time until all the gifts were found and opened and enjoyed them in a leisurely way until the next visit of the herald an hour later. As the family was a large one. the excitement was prolonged well into the evening, and all voted it a much more interesting way of giving presents than to have them all in the morning stock ings or hung on the Christmas tree. greeting to the first of the new 7a e sars. The scene is thus described by Egin hard, the historian of (Charlemagne: "At the moment when, in his place be fore the altar, he was bowing down to pray Pope Leo placed on his head -a crown, and all the Roman people shouted. ‘Long Life and victory to Charles Augustus., crowned by God. the great and paciflc emperor of the RomansT After this proclamation the pontiff prostrated himself . e'ore him and paid him adoration, according to the custom established in the days of the old emperors, and thenceforward Charles, giving up the title of patri dan, bore that ct emperor and Au gustus." A millennium later, on the banks of tiie Seine, another pope crowned an other emperor, who bad planted his throne on the wreck of the fabric reared by Charlemagne. Miss Blanche Armstrong.
